Find out how much energy you’re using
The best way to understand your energy consumption is to take a look at your 2 most recent energy bills.
Average daily usage in kWh (kilo-watt hours) - You can use this number to understand how much energy you need to generate.
When are you using energy? - If you’re using a lot of energy in the evenings (peak time) you might be better off with west-facing panels.
Go outside and take a look at your roof
There’s some key things to look for to understand which solar options are available to you.
Is there any shade covering your roof? - Shadows will impact the performance of your panels. Check throughout the day to see how much shade there is.
Which way does your roof point? - Can you get north, east or west facing panels? Or maybe all three?
