Home energy systems continue to rise in popularity all over the world. At a time where the cost to produce electricity continues to rise, progressively more people are turning to solar as an alternative energy source.
You will need to consider the size of the electrical storage you will need if you are going to power your house completely with solar energy. When a solar electric system is generating power it can be stored in batteries to be used later. If your house does not get a lot of direct sunlight, or you have short days, you will need enough battery storage to get through the times when you do not have enough sunlight.
Right now a solar energy system will cost about 15 to 30 thousand dollars for a system that will power your entire house, depending on your energy consumption. Installing a smaller system will cut your electric bill and save you money too. You can find out your kilowatt hrs per month usage on your electric bill. Or if it’s by the day just multiply by 30.
