im trying to run my house with with solar panels, is it possible? if so please let me know how....i have a 6000 w inverter
I ve been researching this myself! I need appr 6000w per year. I live in MN which a zone 5 on a solar map (4.4 hrs of sunlight per day). I would need 56 panels at 300w each!!! pffft - I d be dead before I recouped my cost, plus my roof isn t even that big! Sure, I can reduce my bill, but then again the $ to reduce it..... I m now looking into wind turbine since it always seems windy here.
In my opinion you can do it. You will need to have solar panels. and batteries to store the power until needed.
It is not feasible to do everything with solar panels. However, if you overproduce during the day and sell the excess to the power company, you might be able to [pay for what you have to buy from them. Another thing you can do is use renewable energy in other forms, with windmills, hydraulic rams, and trombe walls.
There are a variety of factors that come into play in order for you to calculate the answer. Additionally, there are a number of variables that can make the answer change over time. The number of solar panels you need to install to power your home will depend upon your electric power demands, the weather in your area, the angle of your roof, shade issues from nearby trees or buildings and the size of the cells. All of these factors are important and must be built into your calculations so that you can create the best solution for your home and your future needs.
