How Many Solar Panel do I Need for 5 Kilowatt Load?

I have a 4-lead acid battery and one solar inverter. Now I want to run a 5-kilowatt load of my home for that how many solar panels do I need?  

We recommend two type of solar panels as per your requirements that will be suitable for your needs.

1 - Shark 445- Mono Perc, 144 cells, Half cut solar panel

A "445 mono perc half-cut solar panel"  is a type of photovoltaic (PV) panel that utilizes monocrystalline cells with a half-cut design. Let's break down the key elements:

Monocrystalline Cells: Monocrystalline solar panels are made from single-crystal silicon, which offers higher efficiency compared to other types of solar panels.

Half-Cut Design: The cells in a mono perc half-cut panel are divided into two halves, connected in series. This design reduces resistive losses and enhances the overall performance of the panel. By halving the cells, each portion operates independently, allowing for improved shade tolerance and increased energy production.

Perc Technology: "PERC" stands for Passivated Emitter Rear Contact. It is a technology that adds a passivation layer at the rear surface of the solar cell, enhancing efficiency by reducing recombination losses. PERC technology has become popular in the solar industry due to its ability to boost power output.

The combination of monocrystalline cells, half-cut design, and PERC technology in a solar panel result in higher efficiency, better shading tolerance, and increased overall power generation. These panels are suitable for residential, commercial, and utility-scale solar installations.

2 - Shark Bi-Facial solar panel, 440 watts, 144 cells, 9 bus bar

A bifacial solar panel is a type of solar panel that is designed to capture sunlight from both the front and back sides of the panel. Traditional solar panels have photovoltaic cells on only one side, usually the front, which faces the sun. In contrast, bifacial panels have cells on both sides, allowing them to generate electricity from sunlight that is reflected or scattered from the ground or surrounding surfaces.

It Generates power from the front/ back, the Customer is charged only for front side power. It captures more sunlight and generate more electricity. This is the highest wattage solar panel, which reduces the installation cost such as cost of Stand, Civil work, Wire, Connector, etc. 

How many solar panels do I need?

Approx, 10 solar panels are required to generate the power of 5 kw load.

Who will do the installation?

Installation is done by our company “loom solar”. For this you need to do an engineer visit after your site survey they will tell you how much would be a cost of  installation a solar panels etc.
