What you need to know before going solar
Africa is blessed with a lot of sunshine and installing a residential solar system is one of the best decisions you can ever make. Before you rush to install a system there are a few things you should know. To get the most out of solar you need the system designed and installed by professional installers.
Be sure you know the following:
Your energy needs
What power are you going to need in your home? This depends largely on the appliances you intend to run. A good way of estimating how much power you need from your system is using your current electricity bill. How many units in Kwh do you normally use? Is 10 units , 20 unit of 30 units a day.
Number of Sun Hours
The next important thing to know is the sun hours available in your area. The amount of electricity generated by your solar panels depends on the number of panels and the sun hours available in your area, not forgetting how the panels are connected and set up on your roof. The more the sun hours you have, the more energy you will get with a few solar panels. However, if the hours are less, you might need to install more panels to generate the same amount of power.
