Clayton, NJ – 7.2 kW
The NJ home has a 40-degree tilt facing to the south, which made it an excellent candidate for solar power. Although the original motivation of the homeowner to get solar power was environmental, she was impressed to see that her bills went down from over $150/month down to about $4.
Each 1000 kWh power she generates creates an SREC (Solar Renewable Energy Certificate), which is tradable in marketplace and brings her an annual income beside her savings, making the solar system a revenue-generating investment.
The 33-panel solar system offsets 98% of the home’s power usage with an ROI of over 11% and pay back of 6 years.
Number of panels: 33
