What Goes Into Selecting And Sizing A Solar System

Nature makes the best energy. The sun provides a limitless supply of clean, renewable energy that is absolutely free. With all that sunshine coming down, you would be wise to learn how to use its energy to power your home, and solar collectors do just that.

You will want to make sure that you install a correctly-sized system into your home for maximum energy benefits and cost savings. The average solar system costs approximately $30-80 per square foot for collector area, so before you buy, carefully consider the following questions to help you size your solar system:

  • How much of my energy consumption do I want to supplement?
  • How much energy do I consume on a daily basis?
  • Do I live in a climate that is conducive to harvesting solar energy?
  • Can I angle my panels to get enough strong rays from the sun to generate energy?

Realistically, solar power will only be a supplemental energy source. The U.S. Department of Energy recommends you purchase a system that will be able to supplement at least 40 percent of your energy needs. Determine how much energy you would ideally like to supplement compared to what you actually consume to help you calculate how many panels to buy.

Since sixty-five percent of our year is spent in sunshine, you can anticipate receiving adequate hours of the sun’s strongest rays; but this is not enough. You’ll want to make sure that you can orient your panels to the south for maximum sun exposure. If you can’t, you will still harvest some energy from the sun, but not enough to make it worth your monetary investment. A trusted professional can help you calculate your energy consumption, translate that into the number of panels you’ll need, and show how much power a panel can generate per square inch.
