Solar energy can help in so many ways. Whether to power your home or your business. It is also important to know what motivates one to go solar. Are you concerned about minimizing your carbon footprint or would you want to maximize your return in investment? How many solar panels are required to power a home or business? These are some frequently asked questions  Staten Solar receive on a regular basis. One of the easiest ways to get an answer is to consult with an experienced solar installer like Staten, who can give you a free solar evaluation.

It is difficult to get an exact number of solar panels required to power your business or home without detailed consultation with an expert but still, we try to give you some glimpses. The determination of the total number of solar panels always depends upon a couple of factors.

1. Electricity consumption within the premises (Whether it is your home or your business)
2. Total hours of daylight

3. The capacity of Solar Panel (Apparently you required a lesser number of panels with high capacity/watt)

Facts to be considered while going solar:

  • If net metering is available at the location you definitely want to add more than the required panels, generate extra electricity, send it back to the grind, and earn extra credit.
  • Instead of adding more panels to meet the peek consumption, it would be in your best interest to opt for a battery storage system. Charge it with solar and use the same on peak intervals.
  • A solar carport can be more efficient to display your organization‚Äôs commitment towards carbon neutrality and sustainability initiatives rather than any rooftop solar installation. Also, a carport solar installation offers free shading parking to your employees.
