How Expensive Are Solar Panels For Your Home?

6 September 2021 Posted by vmotta Solar Saving

It is difficult to put an average price on a solar home project, since the cost depends largely on how big the project you decide to take on, the amount of sunshine you receive and the size of your home.

Each solar system is designed according to the unique needs and circumstances of each house or business. For this reason, it is so difficult to find a price that is really adequate, without first making an evaluation by an expert.

To define the size and price of your system with Core Energy Solar, our experts must evaluate three factors that allow us to calculate the energy you need and can generate, using the sun in your favor:

Your electricity rate 

You’ll have to determine the monthly kilowatt consumption of your home when you check your monthly energy bill. In general, a household uses 1 kW per hour of electricity or 24 kWh per day.

Solar panels differ but, in general, a 250 W solar panel will produce 1 kW per day if the panel receives 4 hours of direct sunlight. This means that you will need 24 panels to produce 24 kWh per day.


It is necessary to know your electricity consumption habits, this we can analyze with your electricity bill, which stores the history of your energy expenditure last year. It is also important to know if you plan to change your consumption, either because you plan to install a new device or you are going to spend more time at home, as you could use more energy.


Knowing the location of your next solar energy system allows us to evaluate the solar radiation it receives. The roof where the solar panels will be installed must receive direct sunlight. Ideally, 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.

The process is very simple and fast, we just need you to share your electricity bill and the exact location of your home or business, and with this information, our experts will capture your needs at no cost to deliver a customized solution.

Choose a better future for you and your family, cite your new energy system and say goodbye to the excess light received.
