How many solar panels do I need?
As a guide, for a typical residence you can install anywhere from 8 to 22 solar panels. If you have low power bills (<$200), you may want to consider a system of 8 - 10 panels. If your power bills are in the range of $200 - $400, we recommend a system comprising of 12-14 panels. If your power bills are above $400, we suggest a system of 16 - 20 panels.
What equipment makes up a solar system?
The main parts of a solar system are inverters and solar panels. Equipment used to fasten the panels to your roof, cabling, railing etc. are also required and included in your NextGen Power solar system.
Where are the solar panels manufactured?
Most solar panels are manufactured in China and some are made in Korea and Germany. All of the panels we supply are from manufacturers such as Jinko Solar and Canadian Solar, who produce quality products and have been successfully operating in Australia and around the world for many years.
What inverter should I purchase?
Inverters come in many sizes. Most family-sized systems consist of a 5 kilowatt inverter. This inverter size provides enough output to make a meaningful difference to most homes' energy costs. Limiting the inverter size to 5kw also enables you to qualify for the feed-in tariff, which is a credit your electricity retailer provides for excess solar power exported back to the grid.
How much will solar save me?
Most customers see a significant reduction in their power bill of 30% - 40%. Most solar systems will pay for themselves within 5-6 years, sometimes sooner.
