    What’s in a 5kW Grid Tie Solar Power System:

    • What’s in a 5kW Grid tie solar system? Solar Panels Mounting Combiner BoxAC and DC Disconnects Grid Tie Inverter

    Photovoltaic Modules (aka solar panels, solar electric panels) The PV modules are the individual building blocks for providing power from the sun. They are typically made from silicon cells, glass, tedlar, and aluminum. Solar Panels can vary in type, size, shape, and color. The common nominal voltages for panels are 20V and 24V, in order to accomodate the voltage Windows of grid tie inverters.

    Racking/Mounting System for Solar Panels The mounting system for the solar panels includes the hardware to permanently affix the array to either a roof, a pole, or the ground. These systems are typically made of aluminum and are customized to the mounting surface and the model of module used. It is important to consider distance from roof for flush-type roof mount installations. Restricting airflow under the modules results in higher module operating temperatures that reduce power output. With pole mounts wind loading must be considered and proper civil works must be done with the foundation for the pole as well as the possible addition of supplementary wind supports for the array frame.

    Combiner Box A combiner box is an electrical box where series strings of solar panels are then spliced in parallel. This is also the place where the PV series string fuses or circuit breakers are located. This allows the installer to bring the separate strings together and combine them into one positive and one negative conductor, change wire types and leave the area of the modules in conduit. They are usually outside and weather rated, so they can be right next to the array.

    DC and AC Disconnects The DC and AC disconnects are manual switch units that are capable of cutting off power to and from the inverter. Some inverters have disconnects integrated into the unit with switches, others can have them integrated into a power panel assembly, and some inverters leave you on your own to provide suitable disconnecting means. The disconnects are used by service personnel or authorized persons (fire/police/electric workers) to disable power from a renewable energy system (in this case PV) so that there are no live electrical parts associated with the inverter, and that no current is going to the grid that could harm utility employees in the event that they are working in your area. Homeowners or authorized personnel can use the disconnects to de-energize a system for maintenance or service.

    Grid Tie Inverter (Micro Inverter) The grid tie inverter is the device that takes the energy that the photovoltaic system produces in DC current form and turns it to AC current that is then sent (sold) to the electric grid. These inverters typically have a voltage input range from 100 to 500 volts DC and they convert it into 120 volts AC, 240 volts AC, or 208 volts AC. These inverters are especially sophisticated devices that must conform to special regulations in order to tie into the utility. When the power goes out in your area, it is important to know that the grid tie inverter will not allow power to be sold back to the grid. This is done to prevent electric utility workers from being injured or killed by working on power lines they thought were de-energized. When the power goes out, your power will go out as well. A grid tie inverter will not resume normal operations until the utility grid has established standard conditions for 5 straight minutes within strict parameters.

    There are benefits to having a system layout with many small inverters (micro inverters) instead of a single large inverter (string inverter). First, it gives the system reliability by not having a single point of failure. If a module or an inverter is having an issue, it only affects the output of one module, as opposed to the entire system. In a single large inverter system, if one solar module is being shaded, it negatively affects the output of other modules in the system. The micro-inverter decentralizes this so that if one module is being shaded, the output of that particular module is the only one that will drop.

    See our video on the different grid tie inverters, and the benefits of the Microinverter:

    Common Questions:

    How much is 5kW of energy?

    5kW is five kilowatts and a kilowatt is a measurement of power, not energy. A kilowatt-hour, or kWh, is a unit of energy. 5 kWh is five kilowatt-hours of energy and that is enough energy to run a standard refrigerator for, on average, three days.

    5kW is five kilowatts of power and is an instantaneous measurement of the rate that electric energy can be transferred in a circuit.

    How much is 5kw of electricity?

    5kW of electricity is five kilowatts of power.A 5kW solar system installed in an ideal geographic location, with optimal tilt angle and orientation will be capable of producing up to 7,000 kWh annually. This amount can vary depending on factors like seasonality, however you can use the altE solar calculator or contact altE for a more precise estimate of production for your specific installation.

    How many panels in a 5kW solar system?

    A 5kW home system will have 14 solar panels. This is an average number however, as the watts of each panel will determine the number of solar panels needed for a 5kW system.

    How much does a 5kw solar system cost?

    A 5kW system costs about 10,000 for parts. If you hire a solar professional to install the system it will cost more than if you install the system yourself. Either way you will need to have an electrician do some of the work.

    How many amps does a 5kw solar system produce?

    A 5kW solar system will produce 20 amps at 240v. This is because volts times amps equals watts, so 240 volts times 20 amps is about 5000 watts. This however is before any real world inefficiencies are introduced. So under normal conditions you will likely produce less then 20 amps most of the time.

    How many solar panels to generate 5kw?

    14 solar panels are in a 5kW solar system. However it is important to note that this is the wattage under standard testing conditions, or STC. In the real world, due to many factors like the amount of sunlight and losses due to thermodynamics, it is very rare that you will achieve the full STC rating of the system. Therefore it is important to understand your goals when sizing a solar system.

    Can 5kw power a house?

    Yes, a 5kW solar system can power a whole house. However it is dependent on the amount of energy you consume and the specific location where the installation is. If you need help with system sizing, give altE a call at 877-878-4060, send altE a system design request, or read some of the articles we’ve posted in our resource library.

    How big is a 5kw solar system?

    A 5kW solar system takes up about 240 square feet of solar panels.

    How many batteries for 5kw solar system?

    A standard 5kW solar system will have no batteries at all. If you want to add batteries you should look into a grid tie system with battery backup, what is commonly called a hybrid system.

    How much does a 5kw solar system produce?

    The amount of energy a 5kW solar system produces is based on where the system is installed. Factors like geographic location, tilt angle, orientation, seasonality and others will all be factors in determining production. You can use the altE solar calculator or contact altE to determine the amount of energy your system should produce.

    How much energy does a 5kw solar system produce?

    The amount of energy a 5kW solar system produces is largely dependent on its geographic location, tilt angle, orientation and seasonal variations. To determine the amount of energy that a particular system should produce, we suggest using the altE solar calculator or contacting altE directly. The calculator will take into account the local climate and weather patterns, as well as other variables, to provide an estimate of production.

    What can a 5kW solar system run?

    A 5kW solar system can run a refrigerator, a television, a computer, a phone and even an electric vehicle. The amount of energy a 5kW solar system produces is largely dependent on its geographic location, tilt angle, orientation and seasonal variations. To determine the amount of energy that a particular system should produce, and what it can run specifically, we suggest using the altE solar calculator or contacting altE directly. The calculator will take into account the local climate and weather patterns, as well as other variables, to provide an estimate of production.

    A 5,000 WATT( 5 KW ) SOLAR SYSTEM INFORMATION AND PRICING

    A 5000W solar power system is a size that should easily offset a typical home’s electricity usage. If it doesn’t, then you’ve got one serious energy guzzler of a home and should really consider an energy audit before going solar! 5 kW solar systems are also the minimum system size you should be considering if you’re looking to add batteries to your system in the future. Here’s what you need to know about 5kw solar system price and other information.

    How many solar panels will you need?

    To make up a 5kW solar system, you need 17 solar panels, assuming you use 300W panels – that will actually give you 5.1kW. Each panel will be about 1.6m x 1m, so you’ll need at least 17.2m² of roof space.

    How much electricity will a 5kW solar system generate?

    A 5kW solar system will generate approximately 20kWh per day, depending on your location and a variety of other factors. The average home in Australia uses about 16kWh per day. Note that this does not mean installing a 5kW solar power system will automatically give you a 0 electricity bill, as most households use the majority of their electricity at night when the sun isn’t shining – I talk about this in greater detail here.

    How much money will a 5kW solar system save?

    You may be thinking: “If the 5kW system offsets my energy usage, then surely it’s going to wipe out my electricity bill?” Unfortunately it is not that simple! The amount the electricity companies will pay you for your solar energy (what’s known as a feed-in tariff) is, way lower than the price they charge you to buy the same electricity from the grid! Plus, there’s other costs on a bill such as supply charges, aka service charges. However, a 5kW solar power system is still an excellent investment. Let’s say you get paid about 8c per kWh for exported energy (some retailers offer more) compared to 30c per kWh to buy electricity back from the mains grid. Here’s 3 scenarios to show how the 5kW system payback works:

    • Use all the solar electricity by the 5kW systems in your home. This is unlikely unless you have a mini aluminium smelter in your back garden – or you operate a small business from your home. If that were your situation, you would save approximately 2100 in the first year, and around 67,000 over 20 years; taking electricity inflation of 5% into account. Those are some serious savings.
    • Export half the electricity: You would save about 1400 in the first year.
    • Export all the electricity: You would save about 700 in the first year with a 5kW system.

    How much does a 5kW solar power system cost?

    The cost of a 5kW solar system will be around 10,000 before STCs, then you should get about 3,500 subsidy from STCs (aka the solar rebate), which takes a big chunk out of the up-front price. Taking into account the subsidy, expect to pay about 4,500 – 8,000 out of costs for a good quality 5kW system, depending on the components selected and the installer’s approach to installation. Here is a basic price range cost in USA

    5 KW SOLAR SYSTEM PRICE RANGE Average cost of 5kW solar system

    How long before a 5kW solar power system pays for itself?

    If you are not exporting the energy and assuming you’ve paid a reasonable price for a 5kW solar system, then you should see a payback period of less than 5 years – so a fairly Rapid payback timeframe. But you can actually be cash flow positive from day one if you get cheap solar finance. It is very easy to finance the purchase so that your monthly energy savings are worth more that the cost of paying back the loan. It can be a laborious process to find a trustworthy solar installer to provide you with a good-quality 5kW solar power system at a reasonable price.

    How is Powerwall Works

    Powerwall gives you the ability to store energy for later use and works with or without solar to provide key security and financial benefits. Each Powerwall system includes at least one Powerwall and a Tesla Gateway, which provides energy monitoring, metering and management for the system. The Backup Gateway learns and adapts to your energy use over time, receives over-the-air updates just like the rest of Tesla’s products and is capable of managing up to ten Powerwalls.

    With Solar When the sun rises, solar begins powering the home. When additional power is required within the home, the home can pull from the utility grid.

    Powerwall is charged by solar during the day, when solar panels are producing more electricity than the home is consuming. Powerwall then stores that energy until the home needs it, such as when solar is no longer producing at night, or when the utility grid is offline during a power outage.

    The next day when the sun comes out, solar recharges Powerwall so you have a cycle of clean, renewable energy.

    Without Solar If your electricity rates vary throughout the day, Powerwall will charge when electricity costs are low and discharge when electricity costs are high, generating automatic savings. Powerwall will also provide seamless backup power by detecting grid outages and automatically becoming the home’s main power source.

    Tips for 5Kw system Shoppers

    Homeowners who get multiple quotes save 10% or more

    As with any big ticket purchase, shopping for a solar panel installation takes a lot of research and consideration, including a thorough review of the companies in your area. A recent report by the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) recommended that consumers compare as many solar options as possible to avoid paying inflated offered by the large installers in the solar industry.

    To find the smaller contractors that typically offer lower prices, you’ll need to use an installer network like EnergySage. You can receive free quotes from vetted installers local to you when you register your property on our Solar Marketplace – homeowners who get 3 or more quotes can expect to save 5,000 to 10,000 on their solar panel installation.

    The biggest installers typically don’t offer the best price

    The bigger isn’t always better mantra is one of the main reasons we strongly encourage homeowners to consider all of their solar options, not just the brands large enough to pay for the most advertising. A recent report by the U.S. government found that large installers are 2,000 to 5,000 more expensive than small solar companies. If you have offers from some of the big installers in solar, make sure you compare those bids with quotes from local installers to ensure you don’t overpay for solar.

    Use LFP battery acturly save the system cost.

    People will normally think it is cost much higher to buying a Lithium iron battery storage system. While a Lead acid system cost much lower. But, ignor the cycle life for them. A qualified LFP battery system is rated 3000more life cycles at 80% DOD. while lead acid is 200 times game over. Then you will need to replace a new battery system. If you calculate based on each day expensive. You will find out. LFP battery system is much lower and more efficiency. OSM offer a standard 5000w battery system at 5Kwh a module. This allowd you upgrade for more capacity in future. Here is the product link: 5kwh OSM48100

    Easy hang to the wall design.

    Comparing all your equipment options is just as important

    National-scale installers don’t just offer higher – they also tend to have fewer solar equipment options, which can have a significant impact on your system’s electricity production. By collecting a diverse array of solar bids, you can compare costs and savings based on the different equipment packages available to you.

    There are multiple variables to consider when seeking out the best solar panels on the market. While certain panels will have higher efficiency ratings than others, investing in top-of-the-line solar equipment doesn’t always result in higher savings. The only way to find the “sweet spot” for your property is to evaluate quotes with varying equipment and financing offers.

    For any homeowner in the early stage of shopping for solar that would just like a ballpark estimate for an installation, try our Solar Calculator that offers upfront cost and long-term savings estimates based on your location and roof type.

    How many solar panels can a 5kw solar inverter off grid handle?

    A 5kw solar inverter is widely used for 5kW solar power system, it should easily offset a typical home’s electricity usage.

    However, most users installing solar these days tend to install systems larger than 5kW as this provides better bang for buck – 6KW 6.6kW systems are now considered entry level.

    5kW solar systems are also the minimum system size you should be considering if you’re looking to add batteries to your system in the future – again, most who intend installing batteries option for larger systems.

    How many solar panels for 5KW solar power system?

    To make up a 5kW solar system, you need 12 units half cell solar panels, assuming you use 450 watt solar panels – that will actually give you 5.4kW.

    Each solar panel will be about 1.91 metres x 1.13 metre, so you’ll need at least 26m² of roof space.

    To give you a feel for how big 26m² is, this picture may help:

    Choose a 5kw solar inverter

    You can choose high PV input voltage range(120Vdc-450Vdc) 5kw solar inverter, transformerless design provides reliable power conversion in compact size. Besides, it’s worry-free to start up motor-type loads such as refrigerators, motors, pumps, compressors and laser printers as well as electronic loads like TV’s, Computers, power tool and battery chargers.

    How much electricity will generate?

    First we should look at what the available “average sunlight” should do for a solar system. This graph shows the expected output on an average day for a north facing, unshaded solar panel system.

    While this is a fairly broad generalisation, it is fairly typical of what you could expect to see at an initial glance what a solar system might produce. For instance, on an average sunny day at 10am in summer an average 5kW solar system would likely be producing up towards 3.5kW to 4kW but in winter you might only expect between 2kW and 3kW.

    There are again many factors to take into account to accurately predict how much power your solar system should make each day. But there is also a VERY simple formula to give you a rough idea.

    Daily Average Production = Solar Array Size x 4

    So a 5kW solar system should on average produce around 20kWh per day. You will likely see much more power produced during great solar days in summer, probably up to 30kWh and much less power produced during a cloudy winter day maybe lower than 10kWh. But over the year it should average out to around 20kWh. You don’t need to be out there with a pen writing all this down, but if you would like to do an occasional check just before dark, check the daily total. Divide by 4 and you should have a number pretty close to the size of your solar array.

    How many AC can 5kW solar inverter run?

    The 5kW solar system is for big houses, offices and commercial shops. 5kW solar power system is the preferred choice for customers having frequent power cuts in home, commercial shops etc. It comes with 5kw solar inverter off grid. It can run 2ton AC with 2 Fan, 8 LED lights and 1 Fridge easily.

    If you are not exporting all of the energy and assuming you’ve paid a reasonable price for a 5kW solar system, then you should see a payback period of less than 5 years – so a fairly Rapid payback timeframe.

    Solar Panel Cost Factors

    Your location, energy needs and equipment selection are the top three factors that contribute to solar panel cost.

    Location

    Two significant location-based factors will determine your total cost and savings of going solar: the cost of energy where you live and how much sunlight you receive. In states where traditional energy is more expensive, like California, Hawaii and New York, you stand to save more on energy bills when you switch to solar. However, how much sunlight you receive also plays an important role in determining how many solar panels you’ll need (and thus how much you’ll pay for your system). If you live in a super sunny state like Arizona or New Mexico, you’ll have more daily peak sunlight hours, requiring fewer panels to meet your energy needs. That’s not to say solar isn’t worth it if you don’t live in a state with high energy costs and abundant sunlight. See how energy costs compare in your state using the map below, and learn more about how you can determine how many solar panels you need.

    Energy Needs

    The typical U.S. household uses 10,632 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity each year or around 886 kWh monthly. However, several factors can affect your energy needs, including the size of your home, how many people are in your household and if you have an electric vehicle (EV). The higher your household’s energy consumption, the larger the solar panel system necessary to offset your usage. For example, based on our average cost of a solar panel at 3 per watt with installation, a 6 kW system would run you around 18,000, while a 12 kW system would double the cost. Solar providers typically want to install a system that generates just enough electricity to support your typical energy usage — so your panels aren’t producing too much or too little energy. When designing your solar system, you’ll typically speak with a solar expert to determine your current and future needs and decide what size system is right for you.

    Solar Panel Selection

    The cost of your panels and equipment is by far the largest expense you’ll pay during your solar installation. There are many solar panel options available, and the manufacturer, installer and type of panels you choose will affect the final cost of your system. There are three common types of solar panels: thin-film, monocrystalline and polycrystalline. Beyond those options, each solar panel manufacturer offers a selection of products with different wattages, durability and technologies that affect energy production and overall cost. Your solar installer will walk you through choosing the right kind of panel for your home. However, it doesn’t hurt to research the best solar panel brands and manufacturers on your own.

    Purchasing Options

    There are three common financing options for solar panels: a cash purchase, solar loans and solar leasing. In most cases, you’ll see the most return on investment if you buy your solar panel system in cash upfront. However, most homeowners cannot afford to pay tens of thousands of dollars for solar panels out-of-. If you finance your solar panels with a loan, you’ll still see a substantial return on your investment, but the interest that accrues on your monthly payments will set back your solar savings slightly. Another payment option is a solar lease. As the total cost to install solar panels has declined by over 50% in the last 10 years, leasing has fallen out of favor among many homeowners looking to go solar, and many solar companies no longer offer it. Another major downside of leasing your panels instead of owning them is that you won’t be eligible for the 30% solar tax credit. However, you can still see some savings when you lease your solar panels. With this option, you rent your solar panels through your solar provider for a fixed rate each month. You’ll likely still see some savings but won’t own your solar panel system in the long run.

    Solar Installation Company

    Another factor that can greatly affect the ultimate cost of your solar system is the installation company that you choose. Use the chart below to help you find a provider with an installation cost within your budget and request a free quote.

    Solar Panel Installation Cost Breakdown

    Although the exact cost of your solar panel installation will vary depending on the company and type of panels you choose, you can expect your equipment (panels, inverters, racking or mounting hardware, etc.) to make up nearly half of your total cost. Labor costs, administration fees, taxes, building permits and electrical permits comprise the rest of your expenses. Jesse Solomon, the co-founder of NCSolarNow, explained the cost breakdown of a typical solar panel installation as follows:

    How To Save Money on Solar Panels

    The demand to expand renewable energy infrastructure in the U.S. shows no signs of slowing. As a result, the federal government and many states are incentivizing residents to install solar panels on their homes. There are plenty of programs that can help you save money on solar panels. Your solar installer can help you apply for the federal solar tax credit and any state and local incentives for which you’re eligible.

    Federal Solar Incentives

    The Federal Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) is a tax incentive worth 30% of the total cost of your solar panel system. All U.S. homeowners who install solar panels are eligible for this credit, and it reduces what you owe in federal income taxes. For most solar systems, this credit is worth several thousand dollars, which is significant savings. However, if you choose to lease your panels, you will not be eligible for this tax credit. You can only claim this tax credit if you own your panels. The credit is currently set to decrease to 26% in 2033, then to 22% in 2034 before expiring entirely in 2035.

    State Solar Incentives

    In addition to federal incentives, many states offer other incentives to go solar, including tax breaks, credits and rebates. If you’re interested in the solar incentives available in your state, you can browse the Database of State Incentives for Renewables Efficiency (DSIRE) or visit your local government website to learn more. Additionally, net metering is a program that allows you to sell the excess electricity your solar panels generate to your utility company for billing credits. Forty-one states and Washington D.C. have a state-mandated net metering policy, though some policies are better than others. States without a mandated net metering policy, like Texas and Idaho, may have utility companies that offer the program. Many states also offer solar rebate programs for low- and moderate-income households or community solar programs that aim to make clean energy more accessible.
