10kW solar systems are on the large side for residential installations (where as 3kW solar system–5kW solar system is much more common). So as mentioned above, 10kW systems tend to be most appropriate for homes with significant amounts of daytime electricity consumption (or businesses with about 50kWh of daytime usage). They may also be a good size choice for homes who have low electricity consumption and want to go off-grid (see: “Can I go off-grid with a 10kW solar system?“)
How many Solar panels required Roof Space required for a 10kW solar system?
A modern-day 10kW solar system will be comprised of between about 25-30 solar panels and will require about 40-68 m2 of roof space, depending on the wattage of the panels. Call now for roof top survey 03324129441.
Pakistan is home to some of the lowest solar installation prices in the world, and 10kW solar systems – According to the average price of a fully installed 10kW solar system price in Pakistan is around PKR125 per watt – or about PKR 1,250,000 for the whole system. It can vary according to backup requirements or load details.
For anyone looking to install a 10kW solar system, this price point can act as a reference point – some installers will offer a lower price, while others will offer a higher price. The thing to look for is the comparative value of the system – a balance between quality products and price.
Depending a number of factors, the actual power output of a 10kW solar power system will vary. These variables include:
-Panels Location & climate of Area
– Angle/Orientation of the solar panel array
– shade cast on the panels, if there is any it will reduce a lot of difference.
-Operating temperature of the Solar panels
-Solar panel array capacity is accurately matched to inverter capacity
-Performance of the individual components – i.e. The panels and the inverter
Remember: The table above is a highly generalized, indicative guide; it does not take into account your location or the tilt & orientation of your roof – not to consider system prices or financial details like payback period. If you’d like to take a more detailed look, use our Solar System Payback Estimator or our Simple Solar System Sizing Estimator.
Also keep in mind that your network company may have a default limit on solar system size – they may not allow you to connect a system larger than 5kW to the grid without extra paperwork and inspections. Check with your solar installer or local network company for more details.
These days, in the absence of generous, state-backed solar feed-in tariffs, deriving the most value out of your self-generated solar energy is ‘self- consumption ‘ – using as much energy as possible directly. Solar feed-in tariff rates are generally lower than what you’ll pay for energy from the grid, the more solar energy you use yourself, the more you’ll save.
