How Do I Know How Many Solar Panels Will I Need?


Are you considering going solar, but aren’t sure where to begin, or even how many you will even need? Deciding to switch to solar energy is one of the smartest decisions you will make, but It can definitely be concerning if you aren’t aware of how to start this process. Luckily, our New Jersey solar panel installation technicians of Sea Bright Solar will be here to guide you through the entire transition into solar, starting with the number of solar panels you will need based on your individual needs.

The number of solar panels you will need will depend on a number of factors specific to your situation, one of the most important being how much energy your household uses. Also, factors such as your roof’s usable surface area, the climate of where you live, whether or not net metering is available, the efficiency of PV technology, and the wattage of your panels will affect the number of panels you need.

You will need to consider the following questions before you decide how many solar panels to install:

  • How many hours of sunlight will you have, on average?
  • What are your household’s energy requirements?
  • What is your target hourly wattage?

These questions and more will be resolved with the help of our specialists, and we will ensure you are advised to the best of your situation so you can get the most out of your solar panels.
