Residential Solar Power: FAQ'S

What does a residential solar power system consist of?

The typical Kansas City solar powered home consist of. A photovoltaic (PV) solar energy system is composed of solar panels, racking for mounting the panels on the roof, electrical wiring, and an inverter. From sunrise to sunset, the solar panels generate direct current electricity (DC) which is sent to the inverter.

How many solar panels are needed to run my home?

So, a 2,000 square foot home would be allowed a solar array of 4,000 watts. Depending on the type of panel that you choose, a system of this size would be anywhere from 12-18 solar panels. Keep in mind, this formula to estimate consumption varies depending on who provides your electricity. Get your free home solar assessment today >

How many watts does it take to run my home?

As a Kansas City home owner, you can often power most household appliances using between 3000 and 6500 watts. If your home has a smaller furnace and city water, you can generally expect that 3000-5000 watts will cover your needs. If you have a larger furnace and/or a well pump, you will likely need a 5000 to 6500 watt generator. Get your free home solar assessment today >

How many solar panels are needed for a 5kW system?

A 5kW Solar Kit requires up to 400 square feet of space. 5kW or 5 kilowatts is 5,000 watts of DC direct current power. This could produce an estimated 350 to 850 kilowatt hours (kWh) of alternating current (AC) power per month, assuming at least 5 sun hours per day with the solar array facing South. Get your free home solar assessment today >
