Can you run your Home Completely Off of Solar Panels?

As a homeowner you’re surely looking for ways to upgrade your home, as well as lower your costs. Perhaps you’ve thought about installing a home solar system, but you still have questions, including: can I run my home completely off of the energy generated by solar panels?

This is a common question, and as solar panel technology has advanced over the years, we’re here to answer some frequently asked questions about home solar systems. 

How many solar panels are needed to power my home?

It’s important to keep in mind there is no one-size-fits-all answer when it comes to solar panels. The size of your home solar system will depend on several factors, including the climate you live in, how much direct sun your roof receives, and how much energy your household consumes on a daily and monthly basis.

Many people aren’t aware of how much energy they consume, but at Green House Solar, we’re happy to help you figure it out by using your monthly energy bill. We can then compare your energy usage against our market-leading solar panels to determine which ones – and how many of them – are needed to power your home. 

How much will it cost to install solar panels in my home?

Again, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer regarding cost, however with the incredible advancements in technology, we can now do a lot of the work online, and can get a good estimate with just a physical address.  With the 26% Federal Tax Credit still in effect until the end of 2022, and no money down financing options available, solar and energy storage solutions are a great option for many homeowners.  

After the initial installation is complete and your system is up and running, you will see the savings on your monthly energy bills right away – you can save you money while going green and becoming more energy independent. If you’re interested in solar panels, but don’t know how you’ll pay for it, our team will be happy to discuss your financing options and find a solution that works for you.
