There are three reasons to consider installing solar electricity at home:
- Cut your electricity bill and head off future price increases.
- Secure your electricity supply in the event of grid outages.
- Meaningfully cut your carbon footprint and contribute to a greener world.
What is your reason? Often it is some combination of these three reasons and it is important that you have a strong grasp of what it is you are specifically wanting to achieve. It‘s easier than you might think to get up and running with solar electricity for your home. The first step is to figure out how much electricity you use so you can install a solution that is correctly sized for your situation.
Next, have a look around your property and decide where the solar panels could go. Most residential solutions need between 10 and 30 panels. Ideally your roof or panel area should be free from shadows and as close to North facing as possible.
The pitch of your roof can also affect the amount of electricity produced.

In addition to the above, batteries can also be added in areas where grid connections are unreliable or not available. In this case the solar produced electrcity is stored in the batteries for later use at night or on rainy days.
