Ask yourself these questions when planning your own solar power system:
- How much electrical energy will I need?
- What type of electrical energy, DC or AC or both?
- What voltage should I choose?
- How many solar panels (PV modules) will I need?
- Where should the modules be placed?
- What kind of module mount, stationary or tracking?
- How about batteries?
- Will I be adding this system to new construction or an existing structure?
- How can I plan for the future of my system?
