How Many Solar Panels Will I Need For My House?

Estimating The Size of Your Solar Energy System is Not As Difficult As You Might Think.

The first question most people ask when considering solar for their home is, "How many panels will I need for my house?" The answer depends on a few basic factors and a little math.

Utility companies in New Jersey will typically only allow customers to install a solar system big enough to offset their home's last 12 months of electrical usage. Solar energy systems are designed by our solar engineers with enough panels to generate that same amount of electricity as you have used in the past 12 months.

A few factors impact the efficiency of the design and contribute to the overall number of panels required for the house, but the solution is effectively a "Demand" and "Supply" configuration. You can learn more about these factors in our article: Is My House A Good Candidate For Solar?

GREAT OPTIONS FOR EVERY SITUATION

Solar Financing Has Never Been Easier

If the initial cost of switching to solar is a concern, and the reason you have been hesitant to make the switch, fear not!

NJ State and Federal incentives make it cost effective and affordable. The Federal government is currently offering a 26% tax credit (declining to 22% in 2021).

Our solar experts will go over all of this with you during our free solar assessment of your home's solar capability.
