DEPENDING ON A NUMBER OF FACTORS, THE ACTUAL POWER OUTPUT OF A 6KW SOLAR POWER SYSTEM WILL DIFFER.
These factors are as follows:
- Installation Location and local climate – Location is one of the main determinants of solar system energy yields, as the amount of sunshine falling on a solar system’s solar panels directly affects the system’s output.
- The performance of the individual components (primarily the panels and inverter)
- Solar Panel Orientation and tilt angle of the solar panel array
- Whether there is any shade cast on the panels
SOLAR IS ALL ABOUT SELF CONSUMPTION TO GAIN MAXIMUM BENEFIT
Roughly in Metro Melbourne a 6.6 Kw Solar System Produce 22 KWH/Day.
Please note that above number is suggestive only and that we have endeavoured to be conservative in our estimates, using a system efficiency rate of 75%. Also note that this figure is yearly average – in reality, energy produces will be higher in the summer and lower in the winter.
Factors such as installation location, solar panel orientation and component quality come into play, but ON AVERAGE YOU CAN EXPECT A 6.6KW SOLAR SYSTEM TO PRODUCE 24KWH’S.
We always give site specific approximation so you know upfront what’s you generate and on based on that you shift your consumption profile to gain maximum benefit.
The solar system will be producing electricity during the day which will be fed into the home first, what you consume you will save the most money on as you are not taking this electricity from the grid for high prices. The excess electricity that isn’t consumed will be sent into the grid, which the electricity retailer will provide a credit for – known as a feed in tariff.
The most effective way to increase savings from the solar system is to consume as much electricity from the solar system as possible.
