The 60kW Solar System are out of stock
Subscribe to updates – we'll let you know when 60kW Solar System are back in stock. Normally, we update products every 2 weeks.
Your own solar farm can be a great long-term business investment, especially if the energy needs of your office building/case/factory are high. A photovoltaic system supplies you with clean energy all day long and as a result lowers or eliminates your electric bills. In this section of our website you can choose your own 60kw solar system. Our engineers have sized all the components together so you don’t have to.
Large commercial systems are generally installed on the ground because there is just not enough space for putting all the modules on the roof. The majority of them are grid-tie which means that the system is connected to the grid and you are free to draw electricity from it or pump your excess solar energy into it.
The amount of energy that a 60kw solar system produce per day depends on the following factors:
For example, Los Angeles gets around 5-6 peak sun hours in summer, thus a 60 kilowatt solar system can generate from 300 to 350 kWh per day. At the same time in New York the same system will perform significantly worse, especially in the winter.
The number of modules that you’ll need to construct the system will depend on their wattage. Monocrystalline panels range in their power output from 300 to over 600 Watts. It means that you would need anywhere from 100 to 200 panels to build a 60000 watt solar system. Generally, 72/144-cell, 96-cell or larger panels are used in commercial systems, whereas 60/120-cell are more common in home systems. Another option to decrease your 60kw solar system size would be to go for bifacial panels: the active rear side of bifacial module gives up to 33% production bonus to the front side. However, they have to be installed properly to increase the reflectivity of a surface and bifacial gain.
The components of your 60kw solar system kit depend on configuration. Grid-tie kit includes panels and an inverter (possibly several units). Hybrid kits require a high-tech inverter and energy storage. Finally, the off-grid kit generally includes panels, off-grid inverter, batteries and charge controller. However, an off-grid 60kw solar system with battery storage is a rarity since you’ll need a large and expensive battery bank and net metering is not available to you.
Solar systems of commercial and industrial scope take a long time to build: from several months and up to year. The cost of a 60kw solar system will depend on configuration of your system, solar incentives and the panels that you’ll choose.
When it comes to systems of a large size, Chinese solar panels are the most common choice because of their low cost and high efficiency. Here are the most popular Asian brands with a fine reputation:
American-made panels are also a good choice. PV modules from brands like Mission Solar, Silfab, Aptos Solar are more expensive, but the warranties for them and their quality are often better. Premium-class panels from LG, Panasonic, Sunpower are great for residential systems but going for them when building a large system is not recommended: they’ll greatly increase your final 60kw solar system price.
There are three types of configurations of solar systems: grid-tie, hybrid and off-grid. Hybrid and off-grid design means that you’ll have to pair your 60kw solar system with batteries. This will give you a backup in case of power outage, but it also greatly increases the cost of an installation since the battery bank for such a system should be huge.
At A1SolarStore you can find a 60 kWh solar system of your preferable design. Our managers are there for you to provide any information about the components of our systems, warranties and delivery options.
