Solar Panels – Cost and Pricing


In looking at solar panels cost and pricing, it is important to understand what you want out of your solar panel or system.

Do You Want to Completely Go Off Grid? Then you will need to know how much power in wattage your home consumes in electricity. You can find that out by looking at your electric bill. It will show you your energy consumption in watts. Then you will need to buy or build enough solar panels to fit your needs.

Another thing to consider in solar panel cost if you plan on going completely off grid, is the need to buy a complete kit including inverter, charge controller and battery.

Do You Want to Power a Few Appliances? Then you need to find out the power used in watts by looking at the back of each appliance. Most appliances have the number of watts used to power that particular appliance on the back of the appliance itself. Then you will again need to build or buy a solar panel or a couple of solar panels to power your appliance.
