Solar panel specs for my house – feedback requested
Price seems way to high. You didn’t mention the size of the solar system. 7, 10, 15 -20 kW system
Do you wish solar when the grid is down, or just off set your power bill by net metering.
Your power bill is about what mine is. My price checks ranges from 10-20 thousand dollars for a 10 kW system. DYI about 10 thousand, upper limit 20 twenty installed with fed rebate.
I think the best realistic solar system is having a grid tied net metering system with a back up whole house generator, 20Kw. The generator uses natural gas either from city or your own, two 500lb in ground gas tank. Something to think about, with net metering your information may be viewable for all to see from your local utility. At least my local utility does this.
Look at Tesla solar they have an excellent system and are often less expensive then a DYI install, but are not available ever where.
I am no expert, but do have a solar system on my RV with LiFePO4 lithium batteries and its been a great experience.
Excellent info. on the downside of power walls. Thank you.
