Is this solar panel kit right for me?
For half the homes in the United States this 7000 Watt microinverter based kit is more than enough to completely eliminate their bill. You’ll need the roof space though. The modules will occupy about 445ft² of roof space. Luckily with microinverters the modules can be placed anywhere, they don’t have to be grouped all together. The average American uses 920kWh per month. Based on that average this system could provide 49-99% of your usage and reduce your bill to almost ZERO. If you’re an average consumer of electricity (920kWh/month), a 7kW system could probably give you the ticket to electric bill freedom.
A 7kW Solar Kit requires up to 500 square feet of space. 7kW or 7 kilowatts is 7,000 watts of DC direct current power. This could produce an estimated 450 to 1,200 kilowatt hours (kWh) of alternating current (AC) power per month, assuming at least 5 sun hours per day with the solar array facing South. The highest output will be achieved with an unobstructed south-facing view of the sun for maximum solar power. The actual power generated will vary based on location, equipment and installation factors. Refer to your electric utility bill to find the actual kWh used per month and compare it to how much power these low cost 7kW PV systems can generate.
