An 8-kiloWatt solar system is just on the larger side of the average range of what Renu Energy Solutions typically installs. The components of energy use that would likely contribute to sizing a system around 8 kW are:
- A slightly larger home and/or larger family size, of about 6 people
- Most systems in the home are electric, as opposed to gas-fueled, and there may be a hot tub or computer server present that increases energy demand
- In spite of energy efficient lighting and appliances, utility bills exceed $200 in some months
- Solar systems in this size range are more likely to result if the customer determines with help from their tax preparer that they could potentially qualify for the federal solar tax credit of 30%
Because of seasonal and market factors, as well as the essential fact that a location must qualify for solar based on orientation, shading, and utility connection options, we require a real-time consultation with an experienced solar professional in order to issue a quote.
