Solar Panels

The Possible to put solar panels in my house is not easy since each situation is particular for many reasons. Those are

  • The electricity consumption of your home per day
  • The size of the photo voltaic solar system
  • The geographical location of your house
  • Your goals, save money from your electricity bill or completely become independent of the network
  • Size and orientation of the roof

Things to consider

  • Before buying a solar panel system to power your home, there are several things you should consider.


  • The roof where the solar panels will be installed must receive direct sunlight.
  • This should be during the day between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. when the sun is stronger.
  • Many things, such as tall buildings, trees or chimneys, can prevent solar panels from receiving adequate sunlight.

Region and sunstroke

  • The location where you live also influences the efficiency of solar panels.
  • A house located in a place where it receives more isolation than in another region.
  • This phenomenon has to do with the positioning of the Earth and is known as “sunstroke”.
  • The region in which you live determines the amount of solar radiation that reaches the ground.
  • A solar installation company can help you determine the isolation of your region.

Daily electricity consumption in your home

  • You will have to determine the monthly kilowatt consumption of your home by looking at your monthly energy bill.
  • A household uses 1 kW per hour of electricity or 24 kWh per day.
  • Solar panels differ but, a 250 W solar panel will produce 1 kW per day if the panel receives 4 hours of direct sunlight.

Ceiling space

  • The roof required to install a solar panel is typically 100 square feet of ceiling space for every 1 kW of conventional solar panels.
  • Ideally, the roof should have a 45 degree pitch, but the solar panels will operate at a step as low as 10 to 15 degrees and will only experience a 4 percent drop in energy creation.


  • Solar panels designed to be safe.
  • You should never alter, work or repair your system because you could inadvertently expose yourself to harmful electrical currents.
  • Working on the system yourself will usually invalidate the warranty of any manufacturer.
  • The panels should never be touched or altered.
  • If your system has an invert er, you should stay away from pets and children.

Out of the network vs. connected to the network

  • Solar systems outside the network do not have the benefit of having electrical backup.
  • They must rely on batteries to store electricity at night or at times when the panels do not receive adequate sunlight.
  • Solar systems connected to the network do not require a battery backup system because at night or during cloudy days, when the solar panels do not produce energy, you can rely on electricity from the electricity company.


Type pros Con








·       Independence

·       No invoice from an electric company


·       It is not necessary to install expensive power poles


·       It is not necessary to have a power company nearby

·       Batteries should be installed to store enough energy for days when there is no direct sunlight.


·       You cannot rely on an energy company as a source of backup energy








Connected to the network

·       The electric company is always available as a source of backup energy.


·       The power can be sold back to the power company, which is a process known as net metering


·       Less initial costs


·       Does not require batteries


·       Less panels can be used to produce only part of the power instead of 100 percent


·       Additional panels can be installed at a later date

·       It cannot work if the network does not work, such as during a power outage


·       It can be expensive to install the power poles needed to connect them to the network



The ARVIUPS solar energy has decreased its value of after year, it is a very profitable option to power cuts and the conservation of the environment, and you can access a budget of solar energy systems for your home.
