How Much Solar Do I Need?

How much solar do I need? How many solar panels do I need? These are common questions for anyone looking to install solar power in Florida.

How much solar do I need? How many solar panels do I need? These are common questions for anyone looking to install solar power in Florida. The answer lies in your current energy usage. So, dig out your recent energy bills. Here’s how to work out how much solar you need:

Use Our Solar System Sizer Tool

We’ve got you covered with a handy tool that will calculate how much solar you need. Here’s how it works:

Step 1

  • Get out your energy bills.
  • Take note of the highest, middle and the lowest daily kWh usage. Or, if you have 12 months of bills to view, you can take the highest, middle, and lowest monthly power bills and use those instead. (If you don’t have this information available, your energy company should be happy to provide it to you).

Step 2

  • Use our calculator to calculate your average kWh usage or monthly cost.

Step 3

  • View our chart on our solar sizer calculator to see how much solar you need.

Example Calculation – How Much Can I save?

Here’s a quick example of how much you could save. We’ve used our system size calculator:

  • Highest daily kWh usage: 53 kWh
  • Middle daily kWh usage: 42 kWh
  • Lowest kWh usage: 28 kWh
  • Calculated Annual Kilowatt Usage: 14,965

Using this calculation, our suggested solar system size would be an 11.59 kW system (Florida Power Company’s top seller). With an estimated production of 17,458 kWh per year and 1,455 kWh per month, here are the savings we could make: $2,254 yr / $187.83 a month!

How Many Solar Panels Do I Need?

Don’t worry; we’ll take care of calculating how many solar panels you need based on the optimal setup for your roof, location and how much you need based on your kWh demands.

Why Install Solar Panels?

So, you’ve worked out much solar energy you need. But, what next? It’s time to install your solar system. Here’s why:

Solar PV Reduces Electric Bills

As you’ve seen in our calculations, you’re going to save a lot through energy bill reductions. Using our example, over 20 years, you would save over $45,000! Regardless of your solar system size, you’ll save money. That’s a fact.

It’s a tested and proven method. Take those sun rays and convert them to electricity on your own property. Power your lights, appliances, TVs, computers and more – with your very own solar panels.

Net Metering

Better still, you can get money back through net metering. Net metering is when you feed your excess solar power generation back into the grid. You get rewarded for it by your energy company. Even more savings!

Solar PV is Better than Hybrid Heaters

As the price of solar installations in Florida has dropped in recent years, the benefits of heating your water with solar electricity have gone up. Water heaters are notoriously energy thirsty and a primary cause of high electricity bills.

With solar panels, you’ll be powering your water heater with consistent free energy—no need to worry about those long showers as much anymore. If you’re producing enough electricity, you can have them as long as you want – because you’re not paying bills!

Sunlight Hours for Your Location in Florida:

Worried about whether you’ll get enough sunlight hitting your solar panels in Florida? Fear not, it’s called the ‘sunshine state’ for a reason:

  • January: 6.9 hours
  • February: 8.2 hours
  • March: 8.4 hours
  • April: 9.3 hours
  • May: 10.9 hours
  • June: 10.7 hours
  • July: 10.8 hours
  • August: 9.5 hours
  • September: 8.9 hours
  • October: 7.6 hours
  • November: 6.5 hours
  • December: 6.3 hours

Average daylight hours source.

Average Appliance kWh Consumption

If you want to go deeper into how much solar you need, you can analyze your appliances. On average, annual appliance energy consumption looks like this:

  • Refrigerator: 600 kWh
  • Air Conditioning Unit: 215 kWh
  • Central Air Conditioning:1,000 kWh
  • Electric Vehicle: 3,000 kWh
  • Heated Swimming Pool: 2,500 kWh
  • Hot Tub (outdoor): 3,300 kWh
  • LED TV: 432 kWh
  • Desktop computer: 194 kWh
  • Laptop: 150 kWh

What Affects Solar Panel Efficiency?

Many factors come into play here—for instance, the angle of your roof or shade from nearby trees. At Florida Power Services, we always design solar systems to provide optimal year-round energy production.

The quality of the panels also matters. Some companies use cheaper materials than we do, which results in poor absorption of those sun rays. Be wary of entire solar roofs made of solar tiles, too; their aesthetic qualities come at the price of less being efficient than regular solar panels.

What About Battery Size?

Solar batteries capture the unused solar power generated during the day, saving it for when you need it at night or during low-sunlight days. When planning battery setup, we consider:

  • Your average kWh demands.
  • How long you’ll need the battery to provide power for during the night or cloudy days.
  • The best return on investment for your plans, so you can begin to make a profit ASAP.

Grid or Off-Grid?

A significant factor in decking your solar power system setup and size is whether you want to be connected to the electricity grid or not. If you’re grid-tied, you have the space to rely on the grid’s energy at all times, including during the night.

But if you go off-grid, you need to be sure you’ll have enough energy throughout the day – so usually, more space is given for extra kWh demands.

Off-grid solar systems are completely disconnected from the main grid. They’re often used by people looking to live in rural areas with a 360 green vision. Solar batteries are a must in off-grid solar systems and usually require more solar capacity than grid-tied systems.

Top Reasons Why Local Florida Solar Companies Are Often Best

If you’re ready to invest in a Florida solar installation, then congratulations! You’re on the way to saving thousands of dollars.

If you’re ready to invest in a Florida solar installation, then congratulations! You’re on the way to saving thousands of dollars. But next, you’ll need to decide which Florida solar company to use. Which is best? Here’s a look at why choosing your local Florida solar installation company will pay off:

Local Solar Company or Tesla?

That’s probably the first question that comes to mind. Understandably so. Tesla’s marketing has made them a household name across the world. Their owner has his hand in cars, solar roofs and even space rockets. But, in our opinion (and our customers’) that doesn’t make them the best Florida solar company. Here’s why:

1) Better Warranties

Local providers such as Florida Power Services “The Solar Power Company” offer a 25-year warranty on all equipment including end phase inverters (10 year on the installation). While Tesla Solar offers just a 10-year comprehensive warranty.

Tesla’s 25-year warranty only covers the panels. So solar inverters, batteries, roof mountings and leaks repairs will all have to come out of your pocket after ten years! Yikes!

If you go local with Florida Power Services “The Solar Power Company”, you could save thousands of dollars in repairs over the next 25-years as we take care of our customers like we always have done. We care.

100% Guarantee

Go local and you’ll also get a 100% guarantee. That’s because local Florida solar companies are confident about their ability to perform to a high standard AND because, once again, they care. They don’t want to see you left out of pocket with a flawed solar system.

2) Local Florida Solar Companies Are Often Cheaper

We could list hundreds of reasons why local might be better than big-name solar providers, but obviously, a major consideration is always the price.

According to a study by National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), larger solar installers were shown to give a higher quote than smaller, local installers 70% of the time. Those quotes were 10% more on average too!

“Large installers offered a higher quote price than a corresponding non-large installer in about 70% of pairings.”

We always advise you to consider your local Florida solar company and ask them for a quote. Who knows, maybe you’ll save thousands?

3) No Middlemen

When you go local for your Floria solar installation, you avoid frustrating communication issues. Big multinational companies are known for having call centers or, worse, online no-reply systems.

We’ve seen countless reviews of other companies where the customers are left with significant problems (even leaking roofs) and problematic customer service.

As a local solar provider, we pride ourselves on making customer needs a priority from start to finish – and beyond!

You’ll always speak to a human. Our owner speaks directly to you about your solar vision and never hands your over to an external sales team. You’re always in direct contact with the people completing the work.

That saves you time, energy and potentially dollars when it comes to problems and repairs.

4) Custom Designs that Fit Your Home

For local Florida solar companies like us, quality is more important than quantity. We care about making every Florida solar installation a success. Some other companies sometimes compromise on the smaller details to move more sales.

We avoid cookie-cutter approaches and design solar systems for your vision, bringing:

  • Durability
  • Aesthetics
  • Optimized energy output.
  • Fully off-grid systems, which many big names can’t provide.

5) You Won’t Get Oversold.

Say you want a roof of solar panels? That doesn’t necessarily mean you want an entirely new roof built, right?

That’s exactly why we only build and charge for what you want. So, you don’t waste thousands on a solar roof featuring an entirely new roof that you didn’t actually want or need.

6) You’re Helping Your Community

When you opt for your local Florida solar company rather than a massive international billionaire back company, you’re helping your community with:

  • A greener local community with fewer carbon emissions
  • More jobs
  • Helping to maintain the American dream in your community
  • Backing a company that has been serving locally for nearly two decades, to continue.

As a local Florida solar company, we’re facing heavy competition these days from big-name companies. But thanks to local Florida residents, we’re still here, making homeowners and businesses in our community greener and happier year by year.

Plus, that money you spend locally gets injected back into the community because we live here. It’s spent locally, not sent to some billionaire’s pockets.

7) Dedicated Solar Installation Crews

Local Florida solar installation companies don’t use external contractors. So, you know that the team that turns up is:

  • The same team that you’ve read all the reviews about.
  • Highly, trusted and experienced.
  • Not out-of-town, part-timers.
  • They have solar knowledge.
  • Reports directly back to their boss

Those last two points are important. Many bigger companies use teams of roofers or contractors who actually know very little about solar. Local teams do. They’ve been on the job for years, not just drafted in to fill vast demands.

Reporting back to the boss also creates a level of accountability that simply doesn’t exist with national companies. In fact, with Florida Power Services, our owner visits your property and is often on-site during the work.

8) We Understand Your Local Area

Every neighborhood and town has its own unique challenges. That might not seem important when it comes to solar installation, but you’d be surprised.

We’ve worked throughout Florida on all kinds of roofs and know the demands of different tile and shingle types.

Because of our experience, we ensure the most suitable materials are used and the setup is perfect for optimizing the sun’s rays in your area.

We also think about potential storms and wind speeds. National solar companies are cookie-cutter setups that often ignore the demands of each location.

9) Local Often Has Better Ratings

Simply put, take a look at our ratings compared to Tesla Solar. 4.48 vs 2.88 (out of 5 stars).

Why? Because we have a reputation to uphold that is built upon caring about people like you. If you use a bigger company, you’re just a drop in the ocean to them. So when things go wrong, it might not be as big a deal as it is to us.

10) Local Often Use the Best Materials

We also use materials and components of the finest quality, to ensure your solar roofs is: A) Running optimally and B) Less likely to hit problems and need repairs.

In the long run, that saves you thousands of dollars through better energy performance and less repairs once your 25-year warranty is expired.

11) Affordable and Up-front Pricing

The best local Florida solar companies will offer ways to help you maximize your savings! We offer no money out-of-pocket solar loans at .99%, for example.

The solar company should always be honest about costs and never tack on extra charges. It’s well documented that big companies have made sudden price changes. We don’t do that.

Now Is The Time to Act! – Save Thousands of Dollars

If you’re interested in a Florida solar installation, now is the time to act.

That’s because this year you can save 26% through solar tax incentives in Florida. On a $30,000 installation, that would be $7,800!

Why act fast? Because those incentives are dropping year by year. By 2024, they’ll be 0%!

In recent years, we’ve seen many customers regret not acting fast enough to make those savings. You can read out in-depth here to see if you’re eligible for 2021 Solar tax credits in Florida.

Our Solar Warranties Are 15 Years Longer Than Tesla’s!

Tesla’s Elon Musk might be the richest man on earth, but Tesla’s home solar warranties are 15 years shorter than Florida Power Services “The Solar Power Company” warranties.

Tesla’s Elon Musk might be the richest man on earth, but Tesla’s home solar warranties are 15 years shorter than Florida Power Services “The Solar Power Company” warranties.

Here’s why our 25-year solar warranties can save you thousands of dollars for 15 years longer than Tesla:

How Long Are Tesla Solar Warranties?

While Tesla Solar offers just a 10-year comprehensive warranty, we offer 25 on all equipment and 10 years on installation related defects!

That’s over double. That could save you thousands, if not tens of thousands of dollars!

If you choose Tesla and in 11 years your solar system starts malfunctioning, or your batteries aren’t working – the cost of repairs will come out of your pocket.

Note that Tesla offers a 25-year warranty on panel performance only. Solar inverters, batteries, roof mounting and more are only limited to 10 years.

Elon Musk has even said Tesla suffers from quality control issues in recent months because their rate of production demands are getting out of hand.

With Florida Power Services “The Solar Power Company”, we’ll take care of your solar system for over two decades! While Tesla users pay extra for new panels and repairs, we’ll be here – saving you money.

Our 100% Guarantee

At Florida Power Services “The Solar Power Company”, we offer a 100% money-back guarantee if you’re not happy with your installation.

That’s because we know our high-quality craftsmanship has been trusted by Florida residents for 17 years. From customer service to installation quality, we won’t let you down.

Tesla Outsources Their Installation Teams

Unlike the Tesla empire, we’re real people. 

They hire outside teams to come in and do the job for them. That means you never know what team or quality of staff is going to turn up.

Often outside contractors have little to no solar knowledge (the majority of them are previous roof installers, not solar installers), which can cause costly change orders, miscommunication, ignorance or lengthy delays.

Florida Power Services “The Solar Power Company” Has a Dedicated, Local Team

Florida Power Services “The Solar Power Company” has a dedicated, trusted team of engineers and craftsmen that have worked alongside our owner for years. We have a reputation to uphold and a place in the local community that Tesla’s money can’t buy.

From our installation team to our phone line, it’s all in-house – no outside marketing teams and only people we trust. We’re also a NABCEP, FSEC and Florida State Certified Installer.

Tesla Has Eliminated Their Sales Team

Tesla has also gone 100% online, so you’re unlikely to talk to a real person. You won’t be able to speak with them about your solar dream in the same way. Even if you want a phone call, customers have reported monthly long waiting calls and call center staff.

We care about our customers and speak to them as real people. We listen to your solar dream and how we should design the installation based on your home and your tastes.

When problems arise, you can reach our office at any time and talk it over. We make things stress-free for everyone, so you can enjoy the experience of going solar!

Does Tesla’s Solar Roof Make Financial Sense to You?

Many of our new customers mention that they’ve been considering Tesla’s solar roofs. They look great and will gain you curb appeal, but the reason many people stick with our traditional solar panels is that it makes more sense financially.

Solar roof installations require you to build an entirely new roof AND install solar.

If you have no need for a new roof, you risk getting upsold on a product you didn’t even have eyes on in the first place.

With Florida Power Services “The Solar Power Company”, we can install regular solar panels without the need to redesign your roof. We’ll install long-lasting roof mounts and brackets without disturbing what’s below.

Solar Roofs Generate Less Energy

So if the solar roof is more expensive than solar panels, surely it generates more electricity… right? Well, no.

Infact, Solar roofs only generate 70% of the energy solar panels can. That’s because although it’s a roof, it’s a mix of both solar and non-solar tiles. Whereas solar panels take up less space, but are more efficient.

If You Want Solar – Act Now for Federal Tax Credits

Florida’s Solar Tax Incentives will save you thousands of dollars if you start your installation in 2021. This year, you will save 26% – that’s the equivalent of $7,800 on a $30,000 installation!

By 2023 Federal Tax Credits will drop to 22% and 0% in 2024!

But we advise you to get started and lock in that price fast! Delays and COVID issues are potential stumbling blocks that we saw cost customers thousands last year – don’t delay, don’t regret – get eligible for the credits soon!

We Have the Fastest Turn-Around in Florida!

If you need a Florida solar installation, then get it done fast with Florida Power Services. From permitting to the final city or county inspection, it should take us no longer than three weeks!

Many companies take up to 6 months or more, which could see you miss out on 2021’s 26% federal tax credits.

But if you go with us, you’ll be eligible for that AND be saving money

every day, thanks to your new, clean energy machine.

How to Size Your Solar Battery System for 24/7 Day and Night Energy

If you’re looking to install a solar with battery backup system in Florida, sizing it correctly is essential to meet your performance expectations. If you underestimate the needed kWh to power your loads through the night and you could wake up sweating in the dark – you’d rather have more battery capacity than not enough. Another key parameter to calculate is the AC output (or Amps) needed when your solar system functions in “Standalone Mode”, all batteries have different outputs with/without the grid. Proper sizing is step one of our solar consultation, next is a quality design using reputable equipment, and finally the best way to purchase.

The question many new solar owners ask, “What size solar battery system do I need?”. Here’s the answer:

What Size Solar Battery Do I Need?

The best way to get all your questions answered is to schedule a consultation, during the consultation we will evaluate your usage and match a custom solar battery solution to your home.

Taking into consideration weather conditions, temperature and peak power demand are 3 important factors we account for in our custom solar battery hybrid systems. You need enough runtime in your battery bank to power your loads through low light conditions/at night and also proper AC Output to the loads. Undersizing your AC Output may cause your battery inverter to cycle on overload and/or trigger an overcurrent issue resulting in loss of power with possible damage to your equipment. A lot of “out of the box batteries” have output limitations that fail to meet the demand required when the battery cycles. Our consultation evaluates your needs sizing your solar and battery bank to provide the proper runtime matched to amps to power your loads when you need them the most.

Step One: Size the Solar

The solar array needs to be large enough to offset your utility usage and charge the battery bank, upsizing the solar a little is recommended for optimal performance in low light conditions. We always say “you’d rather have more than not enough”.

Check Your Energy Bill

If your home is grid-tied, finding your daily kWh usage is pretty simple and can be done using a power bill and our sizing tool. Sizing your solar array by kWh is much more accurate than going off the dollar amount of the monthly bill.

Use Our Solar System Sizing Tool

Our Solar System Sizing Tool
Off Grid Solar

Off-grid location? Our engineers can design a solar micro grid when utility power is too expensive or non existent, there are many variables to consider when looking at these types of systems and may be costs involved to accurately size and quote. We have extensive experience working on the outlying islands surrounding Florida with dozens of our solar offgrid designs providing power to homes in some of the most beautiful remote locations around. When you need reliable solar power make sure you’re dealing with an experienced contractor with a NABCEP certification and Solar license.

Step Two: Calculate the Battery Capacity You Need

Sizing the needed kWh in your battery bank is easy with our Battery Sizing Tool!
Battery Sizing Tool
There are 3 main parameters you’ll want to carefully compare when you’re shopping solar with battery backup;

  • kWh = Runtime or energy stored in the battery.
  • AC Output = Amps or peak power needed to start and run loads.
  • D.O.D. = Depth Of Discharge which is the usable energy in the battery bank
BATTERY BANKS AC Output
(Peak & Continuous)
D.O.D.
(Depth Of Discharge)
16 kWh 66 A @240V (10 Sec) | 33A @ 240V 100%
22 kWh 66 A @240V (10 Sec) | 33A @ 240V 100%
32 kWh 132 A @240V (10 Sec) | 66A @ 240V 100%
48 kWh 156 A @240V (60 Sec) | 84.99A @ 240V 100%

How Many Kwh Do I Need in My Battery Bank?

More than less! The kWh in a battery bank are used at night or in lowlight conditions when the solar production may not be enough to power the loads. An easy way to calculate this if you have a utility company is take your peak kWh usage and calculate 66%.

AC Output?

This parameter is often overlooked by off the shelf solutions and is just as important as the kWh in your bank. The peak power is the battery inverters ability to start and run your loads. Since all batteries are DC voltage (24-400V) we need to invert to usable AC voltage (120V-240V) to be compatible with the US grid and/or power loads. Our consultation is the best way to be sure your AC Output on your solar with battery backup is sized properly.

D.O.D. (Depth of Discharge)?

The depth of discharge indicates at what level the battery can discharge before recharging. With today’s lithium battery chemistry this range is usually between 80-100%. Some of the biggest names in batteries are on the lower end of this number while our custom battery banks have 100% D.O.D giving you more usable energy when you need it.

Safety Buffer (Days of Autonomy)

We always suggest making a safety buffer. By adding some reserve storage space, you’ll gain access to energy during cloudy days, the night, power outages, storms and other situations where your panels are struggling to generate enough energy.

You wouldn’t drive your car for hours with the gas light on, so why is your home any different?

Decide how many days of autonomy you want your solar system to be able to provide. Between one and two is usually wise. Don’t sell yourself short!

Can I Add a Battery to My Existing Solar System in Florida?

Yes! We can design an AC Coupled battery bank to retrofit your existing grid tied solar with battery backup. Our grid tied battery backup will cycle when the grid fails keeping your loads on through unexpected power interruptions. Here at Florida Power Services “The Solar Power Company” we make adding solar batteries to existing solar panels easy using no money out of pocket loans with rates between .99% – 2.99%.

  • No more paranoia about running out of electricity!
  • Full power, day and night!
  • Protection for storms, cloudy days and grid blackouts.
  • Low monthly payments!

How Long Will Solar With Batteries Last?

Solar battery technology has come a long way from Lead Acid batteries with short 3-4 year life expectancy and low depth of discharge (around 50%) to powerful Lithium Ion batteries with life expectancies of 20+ years and 100% depth of discharge. Lithium Ion batteries are extremely durable and require no maintenance giving them some of the longest lifespans of the batteries commercially available today.

Can Solar Battery Back-Ups Save Money?

Solar battery banks vs generators do save money in Florida! After factoring in the cost of fuel, maintenance, and life expectancy of a generator the solar with battery backup lasts twice as long with virtually no maintenance or costs after installed. You’ll also be significantly boosting your property value, not to mention solar with battery backup makes your home more attractive to prospective buyers should you decide to sell in the future.

2020 Is the Time to Act to Save Money!

As 2020 heads towards its conclusion, there is still time to save thousands of dollars. But act fast! After this year, you’ll no longer be able to get the massive 26% reductions through Federal Tax Credits.

For example, if your solar power installation in Florida costs $38,000, you can receive Solar Tax Credits of $9,880 in 2020. Don’t miss out on this great opportunity, we have limited installation availability due to demand. Contact us now for a solar consultation and beat the deadline.

Investing in solar is a big decision. I appreciate the difficulties of researching the best solar companies in Florida and comparing apples with apples, so we’ve made it easy to understand:

What Sets Us Apart From the Competition?

We’re a NABCEP Certified Solar Installer

We’re proud to have been awarded certification as solar PV (photovoltaic) installation professionals from the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP). The NABCEP is the most recognized certification any solar provider can be awarded. It requires rigorous training and engineering knowledge of the highest level. There are over 450 Solar companies in Florida, with only around 50 NABCEP certified. Don’t settle for anything less.

Note that only with a solar system installed by a NABCEP certified provider can you make money through net metering.

Florida State Certified and FSEC CERTIFIED

We’re also a Florida State Certified Solar Contractor, meaning we have a specialty license for photovoltaic systems and related equipment. Our FSEC certification required forty-hours of hands-on training at the Florida Solar Energy Center in Cocoa.

Over 18 Years of Solar Experience in Florida

Since the early 2000s, we’ve been helping Florida residents and businesses go solar. We’ve installed over 10.5 million watts of solar energy on projects covering small homes to large commercial properties. We’ve been at the forefront of the solar rise in our state, which shows no signs of stopping.

Experience is everything when it comes to solar companies. The last thing you need is a provider that doesn’t operate smoothly or have the experience to handle problems that arise. That costs time and potentially thousands of dollars. We’re regularly chosen over competitors because we’re a safe pair of hands.

Unlike other contractors, we don’t hand you off to an independent sales company with little to no solar knowledge. That only leads to miscommunication or ignorance. That’s why you speak directly to the owner and the people working on your property—crystal clear communication, from start to finish.

Why 2020 Is The Time to Go Solar!

Whether you decide to use our services or not, we believe 2020 is set to have the lowest solar costs for decades to come. Don’t miss out. The time to act is now!

2020 Tax Credits Could Save You Thousands

2020 is the final year offering a massive 26% reduction on solar installations, as Federal Tax Credit reductions drop to 0% over the next two years. Thanks to 2020’s tax credits, you could save thousands of dollars. For example, if your installation costs $10,000, you can receive Solar Tax Credits of $2600 in 2020.

If your system isn’t interconnected by Dec 23rd, 2020, you risk losing 4% on your tax credit (up to $2,400 or more for residential).

Solar Industry Backlog

Because of COVID-19, the solar industry is facing a solar panel manufacturing backlog. That means the longer you wait; the fewer equipment choices are available. There is a fear a second wave could add to the delay. Our advice – don’t delayl. If you’re ready to go solar, then act fast!

COVID Turnaround Times

Planning reviews, permitting and inspection turnaround times are currently longer than usual because of COVID-19. If that causes you to miss the 2020 tax credits saving deadline, you could end up paying thousands of dollars more.

Getting ahead of the end of year rush will not only yield more savings, but you’ll also have one less thing to worry about during the holidays. The time to act is now.
