How ideal is your roof? We'll help you work it out
To produce the maximum amount of electricity from your home’s solar power system you will need the maximum amount of sun on your roof’s panels. That's why a north facing, unshaded roof is ideal, because it will receive as much sun as possible throughout the day.
You’ll also need about 10 square metres of roof area for a small 1.5kW system, which provides about a third of an average home’s energy needs. Similarly, a 3.5kW and 5kW system would require approximately 24m² and 34m² of roof space respectively.
Example: 1.5 kilowatt system
- Typically has 6 x 250 watt solar panels
- Requires 10 square metres of roof space
But don’t worry, you won’t have to work all this out yourself because Ingenero’s qualified solar consultants use our specialised online assessment tools to determine the right sized system for your home and energy needs. We also conduct a pre-install inspection before you pay any money, to ensure your roof is suitable for solar.
