Panel Selection: Determine what solar panel best fits your needs and your budget.
- The energy calculator will provide you with the system size that will achieve your desired energy offset.
- Select your solar panel and the calculator will indicate how many of those panels you will need to reach your optimal system size.
- Develop a layout to determine how to best fit the solar panels on your roof.
- Another consideration that is important to some, but not to others is the aesthetics of the panel. The black on black panels can blend into some roofs more easily that a panel with a light background, but the cost per watt is higher. In the end, this is a personal choice.
