How many solar panels does your home or business need?
Most people take into account the number of appliances that a solar power system is supposed to generate electricity for, however, they forget to apply the dynamics of the number of people using these appliances which in turn becomes the frequency of usage. Say, for example, your office has only 2 big fans and one major light. If 2 employees were to use this setup, they would require a lot less than 4 employees. This is where the change in energy metrics arises. Therefore, according to our energy experts, a medium-sized home or an office set up with just 3 to 4 employees and basic appliances would require a minimum of a 6.6 kW solar panel system.
Alternatively, if you opt for a general solar panel, you would need around 20 of them to be able to produce enough power to match your 6.6 KW requirement considering that on average a single general solar panel produces around 330 watts of power.
Deciding how many panels would you require can be difficult however, if you conduct an energy audit right in the beginning to get an estimated idea of exactly how much electricity on average do you consume on a daily basis, you will be able to calculate the number of panels needed in order to generate the required amount of output.
A solar panel is put together with solar inverters in order to create one fully functional solar system. It is best to rely on a team of experts and get them to survey your energy requirements before you make a final decision or even make an investment.
How much electricity will a 6.6kW solar panel system generate?
A 6.6 Kw solar power system in Melbourne can produce 6.6 kilowatts of energy. However, this is only true if ideal conditions to produce electricity prevail. Sometimes the weather is rainy and foggy or your panels get covered with the shade of a tree. Since solar panel systems are meant to harness the power of the sun and then convert it into electricity, it is possible that when ideal conditions aren’t perfect, your 6.6kW solar energy system may produce less than 6600 watts of power.
This is where the experts of Amrut solar come into the picture. We assist you in finding the perfect spot and installing the solar panel at the right place. We ensure that the solar panel system that we install for you in Australia produces enough electricity for you. And gives you round-the-clock usage for all your appliances.
What are the benefits of 6.6kW solar systems?
There are various benefits of using a 6.6kw solar system. Since the 6.6kW solar power system is a standard system, you will find that you will end up making huge savings on your power bills. You may have no use for electricity at all, and instead of daily, you will receive your electricity bill bi-annually.
You would also get a larger discounted rate from your point of sale with a larger solar system.
You will become entitled to the government rebate as well, and would be benefiting the environment greatly. A 6.6 kW solar system would be beneficial for those who are already users of solar energy, as switching from a 5kW solar system to a 6.6 kW solar system does not require a larger inverter, and can save thousands in just installation costs!
How much space do we need for the 6.6kW solar power system?
While setting up your 6.6 KW Solar Panel System there are many factors that one must consider. Apart from locating the perfect spot where there is adequate sunshine it is also important to see the size dimensions of the solar panels and check which is the best location in your home for it. The average size of solar panels is 1756×1039×30mm (69.07×40.97×1.18 inch).
If you wish to install a solar system that produces at least 6.6kW of electricity to power your residential property, you would have to install at least 20 such panels, and therefore would require a minimum of 32 square meters of roofing space.
But that’s not all. The experts at Amrut Solar always recommend that you identify at least 2 such spaces within your homes or office area and our experts can come and evaluate the best spot of the two. What’s more, apart from this one must also section off another area alongside, in order to set up the solar power inverter so that your solar system is complete.
