Frequently Asked Questions about 10kW Solar Systems

How much electricity will a 10kW solar system produce?

Generally, a 10kW solar system produces around 10,000 watts of electricity per hour or between 30 and 45 kWh daily. However, a 10kW solar system's power output can vary due to weather, temperature, system age, and panel cleanliness. Considering possible system losses caused by these factors, you might experience an efficiency reduction of approximately 5% under certain conditions.

Is 10kW enough to power a house?

A 10kW solar system is a substantial installation that can comfortably power an average American household. However, assessing your energy consumption patterns and local conditions is essential to ensure a 10kW solar kit meets your specific needs. Regular maintenance and energy-efficient practices can help you make the most of your solar system.

What appliances can a 10kW solar system power?

The specific appliances and devices you can power with a 10 kW solar system will depend on your energy usage patterns, the efficiency of your appliances, and the available sunlight in your area. Additionally, you may want to consider energy-efficient appliances and potentially adding battery storage to maximize the benefits of your solar system and ensure reliable power during non-sunny hours. Here are some examples of what a 10 kW solar system can power on a daily basis:

  • Refrigerator: A typical refrigerator uses about 100-800 watts and may consume around 1-2 kWh per day.
  • Lights: Lighting accounts for a significant portion of household energy use. A 10 kW solar system can easily power all the lights in your home.
  • Computers and Electronics: Computers, laptops, and other electronics generally consume a few hundred watts each. You can power multiple devices for several hours each day.
  • Television: A flat-screen TV consumes around 50-250 watts, depending on the size and type. You can watch TV for several hours.
  • Washing Machine: A washing machine typically uses 300-500 watts per load. With a 10 kW solar system, you can do multiple loads of laundry.
  • Microwave Oven: A microwave oven can use 800-1,200 watts. You can use it for cooking and heating food.
  • Air Conditioning: This one depends on the efficiency and size of your AC unit, as they can vary significantly. A 10 kW system might not cover all of your air conditioning needs, especially during hot summer days.
  • Electric Vehicle Charging: If you have an electric vehicle, a 10 kW solar system can help offset the charging costs, but it might not cover all your charging needs if you drive a lot.
  • Water Heater: Water heaters are typically large consumers of electricity. A 10 kW system may not fully cover the energy required for heating water, especially in electric-only households.
How many solar panels are needed for a 10kW solar system?

The number of panels needed for a 10kW solar system depends on the panels’ efficiency and your roof’s layout. On average, a 10kW solar system requires approximately 30 to 40 panels. Here at GoGreenSolar, we also offer high-efficiency 10kW solar kits that can achieve the same output with just 25 panels.

Do I need battery storage with a 10kW solar system?

Incorporating battery storage into your solar system is a dependable and effective way to store surplus solar energy for later use. Battery storage enhances self-reliance, diminishes dependence on the electrical grid and cuts energy costs.

A 10kW solar energy system may enable you to power your home autonomously. However, you will need solar batteries to store excess energy during periods when sunlight is limited or absent, like at night or on cloudy days.

What’s the cost of a 10kW solar system?

The national average cost for a residential solar energy system in the United States ranges between $16,870 and $23,170 after federal tax incentives – not including installation.

However, a DIY solar installation is a great way to save nearly half of your total solar costs.

While there are many variables involved, like system size, what state you live in and what rebates are available, going the DIY route is a great way to make a major difference in the total cost of your system.

How much space will the solar panels take on my roof?

A 10kW solar kit from GoGreenSolar typically requires about 575 square feet of roof space. It's important to note that if you choose solar panels with string inverters, they must be grouped together, facing the same direction.

Microinverter or String Inverter?

An inverter converts DC (direct current) into AC (alternating current) to generate energy that powers your home.

Microinverters

Microinverters are installed behind each solar panel to create separate power-generating units. This allows for easy future expansion. Microinverters are also best for properties with shade, as individual solar panels are optimized for maximum efficiency.

String Inverters

For ground mount kits, you also have the option of using a string inverter, where solar panels “string” together and connect to a central inverter. String inverters are cost-effective and suitable for homes with no shading issues. Note that a string inverter won’t work efficiently if any of your solar panels malfunction or drop in output.
