1KW solar system
Picking the parts of a solar installation so they would match together can be tedious and complicated. That’s why at A1SolarStore we offer complete ready-to-go kits for different applications. In this section of our website you can find 1 kW solar panel systems of different configurations.
1 kW solar kit application
The size of the kit is small which is why it is a great choice for small DIY projects, boats and RV support. The energy needs of a recreational vehicle, for instance, are relatively modest thus a 1kw off grid solar system can be a great energy solution for it. The advantages of having a solar system instead of a traditional gas generator are:
- Solar panels don’t smell and they make no sound;
- Panels don’t need fuel which has recently gone up in price; as long there is sunlight, panels work everywhere.
- Rigid solar panels last for over 25 years and they can survive a seastorm or a tornado.
You can use a 1kW solar system at home as well. Keep in mind, however, that it won’t be able to power an entire home by itself. However, it should still produce around 3-6 kWh of power per way and it can substantially lower your electric bills. Generally, a grid-tie system pays for itself in 6-7 years in the US and even quicker in places with lots of sun or high electricity rates.
What a 1kW solar kit includes
The components of your system may vary, depending on its configuration. Grid-tie variations should have the panels and an inverter. You can add solar optimizers to make your system more resistant to shading. Another option would be to choose microinverters instead of a standard string inverter. Microinverters are more efficient and offer better monitoring capabilities.
Hybrid 1kw solar panel kit has a hybrid inverter. The difference between it and a standard grid-tie inverter is that a hybrid one doesn’t just shut down once a power outage in the grid occurs. Hybrid inverters support a battery or have a built-in energy storage. When the grid goes down, an inverter switches your appliances to battery support. Batteries also help to avoid using commercial electricity at times when rates are the highest.
A 1kw off grid solar kit is the most common choice when it comes to this power capacity. A system of this size is a great choice for DIY projects, an RV or a boat. Off-grid kits always have batteries that you can use at night or at times when panels don’t produce enough. You also require panels, an off-grid inverter and a charge controller or a regulator. A controller protects your battery from the high voltage of a solar array and prolongs the lifespan of your energy storage.
Since the capacity is small, a 1 kw solar kit usually contains three solar panels. We offer monocrystalline modules from manufacturers from all over the world. Asian panels are the cheapest on the market. NA brands have higher prices but the quality is considered to be better. The most modern panels, packed with the latest innovations, come from LG, Panasonic, Sunpower, REC. Their prices are the highest, but they offer great warranties.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I choose the right system size?
Your utility bills contain the energy consumption data for your home. All you need to do is divide the daily figure by the number of peak sun hours in your area. The result will be a gross estimate of a system size needed to offset 100% of your energy needs. Please refer to our article on sizing solar panel systems for more detailed instructions.
How do I know if a system is good for my house?
You can browse through our catalog and pick a system with desired power output and functionality. Our engineer with 20+ years of experience will adapt it based on the information you provide. He will take into account your location, roof pitch, house orientation and other factors. You don’t need to know a single thing about solar – we will support you at every stage.
Which system (grid-tie, off-grid or hybrid) will work for me the best?
It is impossible to give a good recommendation without knowing any details, but we can share the general principles. A grid-tie system is the standard choice: it is the most affordable and lets you take advantage of net metering. You need an off-grid system if the grid is unavailable or full independence is desired. A hybrid system is a mix of the two, performing equally well with and without a grid connection. You can find a more nuanced take on the difference among the three types in our article.
Does a solar system include all that is needed for installation?
Yes, our systems include absolutely all components. You won’t need to buy any extra parts to install it and start generating power.
Will you install the solar panel system for me?
Currently we do not provide installation services. You will need to contact an independent solar installer.
Do you offer a warranty for your solar panel systems?
All components of our systems come with a manufacturer’s warranty. We also stand behind the work of our engineers who configure the systems and guarantee full compatibility.
How can I get my system?
We work with the top freight carriers like XPO, FedEx, ODFL, R&L, etc. We also offer a free pickup option so that our clients could get the equipment cheaper and faster. Note that pickup is dependent on the availability of equipment in our fulfillment centers, and may not be feasible in your location.
Do deliveries of solar panel systems take longer?
We deliver our systems as fast as the rest of our equipment. Typically it takes 5 to 7 days.
Do you have all the displayed systems in stock?
