In the past, the idea of generating all of your electrical needs by the use of solar panels was considered about as easy as piloting a flying car! However, with the technological advances that have been made over the years, solar power has become more affordable, more popular, and well within the possibility of powering an entire home.
In order to set up a system of solar panels to generate enough power for your home, you’ll need to assess your family’s needs and determine how much energy you use on a regular basis. This will allow you to know the size and capacity of the system you’ll need to install.
In addition to the solar panels, you’ll need to have storage batteries. The storage batteries will supply you with power during times when the sun isn’t shining. Without the batteries, you’ll have to rely on your local electric company during these times.
In addition to assessing your energy needs, you need to think about the climate where you live. In some areas of the country, the sun is almost always shining brightly, but in other areas periods of overcast sky can last for days or weeks at a time.
The location of your solar panels is important. You need to make sure that they have a clear shot at the sun without any overhanging trees. Trees can not only block the sun, but they can present the danger of falling limbs that could damage your solar panels.
Taking all of these factors into consideration will allow you or your solar expert to calculate the required number of solar panels and the battery storage capacities you’ll need to be able to supply your home with an adequate supply of power.
