How many solar panels does the average house need?
How many solar panels do I need for a 3-bedroom house? How many solar panels do I need for a 2000 sq. ft. home? These are all common questions for an aspiring solar homeowner. Determining how many solar panels you’ll need for your home requires first knowing what your goals are.
Most people want to save money while minimizing their environmental impact.
To calculate how many solar panels you need, you need to know:
Your average energy requirements
Your current energy use in watts
The climate and amount of sunlight in your area
The efficiency of the solar panels you’re considering
The physical size of the solar panels you’re considering
One simple way of answering the “How many solar panels do I need” question is to consult a professional solar installer, who can give you a free home solar evaluation.
How much do solar panels cost?
It’s important to know there is not a one-size-fits-all answer because every home is different, and there are many geographic variables and federal and local tax incentives to consider.
The easiest thing to do is to contact a professional solar installer. The installer will give you a free evaluation that entails looking at your electricity bill to find out how many kilowatt hours of electricity your household typically uses and evaluating your roof and shading, to determine how many panels you’ll need. That, combined with local solar incentives your community may offer and the federal solar tax credit,* will give you a full picture of how much your home solar system will cost. The good news is that no matter where you live, the cost of solar panels is coming down.
We look at the price per watt when figuring out the cost of your system, but you may find it more useful to think about the price of leasing a solar system separately from the price to own one. That's because with a lease it's important to think about how much you can save for each month of the lease, but when you own the system it's more important to understand how quickly it can pay for itself.
What solar incentives or solar rebates are available?
There are many different tax incentives, subsidies and financing and billing solutions at the state and local levels that can make going solar more affordable. To see if you might be eligible for renewable energy incentive programs, visit the Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency (DSIRE®).
If you purchase your solar system, you may qualify for the 26% federal tax credit (ITC).* The full solar ITC is available to home solar owners through 2022. It drops to a 22% credit in 2023 and is scheduled to go away completely in 2024, so don’t put off buying solar for too long.

Sandy Williams, Homeowner
When we bought the house, my sister got her solar, so to save money, we decided to go with solar. We were about to sign the contract with another company, but then Glim Solar gave us a better price so we decided to go with them. The reps were very good and respectful. The response was quick. Everything is perfect. I'm very happy.
Quinn Davis, Homeowner
The process was simple. Glim Solar sends you the contract, explain it to you, and you paperless sign all the documents. The price just couldn't be matched. Also, everyone in every stage has been very good at responding back to questions.
