San Diego County Solar is pleased to announce availability of the new, increased power 280 watt LG Electronics solar modules. This new offering from LG will lower the cost and reduce the available space needed for photovoltaic installations.
Not every home is well suited for solar power. Approximately half the population lives in rented property, some homes don’t have good sun exposure and nearly a third of homeowners don’t meet credit requirements to finance a solar power system.
The size of a typical residential solar panel today is about 18 square feet, or a little less than 3-1/2′ x 5-1/2′. They’ll vary in size, depending mostly on the rated wattage and technology of a particular product’s solar cells.
With net metering you earn credit for every killowatt hour (kWh) your solar energy system is producing. Any time your solar electric system is producing more power than you’re using, the excess will help power the utility company grid.
