Solar system is more than just photovoltaic modules — you have to pick several components and size them together correctly. The task may come off as a challenging one for newcomers to solar energy and electrics. You can use the articles in our blog to help you or just pick a complete 11kw solar system where all the parts already fit together well. We offer systems of different designs and every one of them is checked by our engineers.
11kw solar systems are closer to commercial systems than to residential installations. Most times you won’t have enough space on a roof to put all the modules for it there. That’s why you might want to go for a ground-based installation when it comes to systems of that scope.
The 11 kw solar panel system size and the area that it requires will depend heavily on the panels that you’ll choose. You’ll need from 20 to 40 PV modules which may vary in wattage from 300 to 500 Watts. An interesting option would be to go for bifacial panels: the active rear side of such a module provides up to 33% bonus to its front side production when installed correctly.
How much power does a 11kw solar system produce? The production of your system can be influenced by factors such as location, positioning, angle, weather and shading. Multiply the power capacity of a system by the number of peak sun hours in your area to get a rough production number. For example, in Los Angeles during summer you can expect over 60 kWh of power per day from your 11kw solar kit.
The most popular configuration for a 11 kW system is grid-tie, when your house is connected to the grid but you use the energy from your solar panels during the day. You can go for a hybrid or off-grid configuration as well — the problem is that the energy storage for such a system is going to be expensive due to its big capacity. 11kw solar system can power a large house on its own and you can use it for your business, such as a shop, cafe or a gas station.
Solar systems are a long-term investment. Generally, a PV installation pays for itself in 6-8 years in the US. Since the lifespan of panels exceeds 25 years, you get your money back several times. Of course, a lot depends on the initial 11kw solar system price, electricity rates in your area, the number of sun hours that your system gets and the incentives from government and utilities that you were able to make use of.
So how much does a 11kw solar system cost? You may have to pay anywhere from $15,000 to $30,000, depending on the design of your system, the panels and the equipment, plus labor and permits.
The cheapest option to go for is a grid-tie system. It only requires panels and an inverter. Hybrid system is slightly more expensive because the inverter is more complex and you also need energy storage. Off-grid 11 kw solar kit is the most expensive option because of the batteries.
We offer a variety of different 11kw solar systems for sale. Don’t hesitate to ask our managers about the components of our systems, warranties and delivery options.
