A good number of businesses and residents in Nowra and the rest of New South Wales have already made the shift to solar power, mainly because of the Solar Rebates, credits, and incentives available. When you shift to solar energy, you get savings on the installation cost as well as the day-to-day expenses you would typically spend on electricity. This is why you should find your solar energy provider and get Nowra Solar Quotes today.
When you ask for quotes for your solar power system, you need to know what kind of system you need. This will depend on your electricity needs as well. Different providers have different systems available, but this is what small, medium and large-scale systems will approximately look like:
Nowra Solar Power System Sizes
Small-scale systems for Nowra Solar Power are usually right for a household with about 2 members. Whether you’re a newly married couple, roommates, or a small family, you usually need a system with 6-10 solar panels. This system will produce 1.5kW to 2.5kW in electricity.
A growing family of 3-4 would need a system that’s a little bigger than small-scale. For medium sized PV systems, the solar system size is about 3kW-4kW. This is usually a system that has around 12-16 solar panels.
If you have a home that’s above average in size and that’s occupied by a large family (more than 4 people), then you’ll most likely need a large solar power system. This has more than 18 solar panels, and can generate more than 4.5kW in electricity.
The general rule of thumb is that the bigger your solar power system, the higher savings you get off your electricity bill as well. Of course, what you would normally pay for electricity if you’re a big family is significantly higher than what a couple would pay for.
