How many solar panels will I need for my home?

Here’s a rough guide to how many solar panels you might need:

  • A 1-bedroom house will need around 6 panels and a 2.1 kWh system 

  • A 3-bedroom house will need around 10 panels and a 3.5 kWh system

  • A 5-bedroom house will need around 14 panels and a 4.9 kWh system.
