Plan your Clean Energy System

Please use these pages for design information. Solar and Wind power systems produce power and energy with no fuel costs, or toxicity. Solar and Wind energy systems require that you define your load electrically. What are your power and energy requirements? Check your electric bill and look up your total KWH energy consumption per month.

This KWH per month number is vital to proper solar and wind home power and commercial power system sizing.

Your electric bill will tell you how many Kwh of energy you use each month.

Designing your solar PV, or Wind generator system begins at the load. Define your electrical load as carefully as you can. Do you need DC or AC power? Which system voltage will you choose? Will you be connected to the utility grid for net metering, or will you be an off grid system? Will you use batteries in your system?

Once you answer these basic questions then you can zero in on the system specifications. In general for Solar Power systems you'll need to work backwards from the electrical load demands you need to provide, toward the solar PV system and components like batteries, charge controllers, and inverters you'll need. Use the information below to begin to define the elements you'll use for your solar and wind power system, either Grid Tie Net Metering, or Off Grid Stand Alone.
