How Many Solar Panels are Needed to Power your Home? 

The question isn’t about how many solar panels you neeed, it’s about how many kilowatts or energy your Solar System will produce to cover your electricity bill, right!

Solar Panels these days are starting from 440w not like old ones that started from as low as 180w.

Therefore the average homeowner needs 15 x 440w solar panels to have 6:6kw Solar System which is a very common size for most homes that are a single phase in Melbourne. This will cover in most cases an average throughout the year approximately 26+ kilowatts per day. Therefore if you look at your electricity bill, see how many kilowatts you use per day, particularly during peak. So if you use 20kws at peak prices 30 cents per kilowatt per day {which is very cheap}, that would be 20 x 30 cents equals $6:00 per day. 365 days x $6:00 equals a potential saving of $2,190 per year! This will help with significant savings to your electricity bill and the cost with the cost of the solar panels and the installation.
