6.6KW SOLAR SYSTEM FOR HOMES:
Australian homes are becoming more popular with 6.6kW solar systems because of their price, payback period, and others benefits. 6.6kW solar systems approval is easy for connecting to the grid. Its pricing is affordable, ample size, and generates enough energy for the average Australian household. Average Australian house use between 20KW to 25KW per day, if you consume that amount of electricity then a 6.6kw solar system is perfect for you.
A 6.6KW SOLAR SYSTEM COST:
6.6kW solar systems will be more cost-effective for you. With a good quality panel and inverter, a 6.6 KW solar system cost between $600-$8500.Many variables affect the price of a system like the Federal Government’s rebate scheme.
PAYBACK PERIOD FOR A 6.6KW SOLAR SYSTEM:
The payback period is the number of years required for the system to take pay for itself in energy bill savings. With a good solar system installation, you can pay back in around 4-5 years. Better quality solar panels that cost more but last longer and you can save upward of $50,000.
NUMBER OF PANELS IN A 6.6KW SOLAR SYSTEM AND AREA REQUIRED IN ROOFTOP:
A 6.6kW system requires anywhere between 20 and 24 solar panels. It depends on an efficient panel, a 275W panels need 24 and a highly efficient 330W panel needs 20 panels. Depending on panel measurement approximately 1.8×1 meter (per panel), around 30 square meters of rooftops require for a 6.6kw solar system.
5KW INVERTER IN 6.6KW SYSTEM:
Because of panel efficiency, a 6.6KW system comes with a 5KW inverter. Solar panels lose their rated power when the temperature is above 25C. Typically you do not allow to have an inverter greater than 5Kw. So you need not pay excess for the inverter, rather you will receive an extra rebate for an additional 1.6KW of solar panel.
BENEFITS OF A 6.6KW SOLAR SYSTEM:
6.6KW solar system maximizes the STCs and saves some money. 5kW inverters are cheaper compare to 6KW inverter hence lowers the cost/watt of your solar system. Therefore 6.6 kW system is best for you.
