With residential solar panels becoming more popular every passing day, Australia is making record solar installations for households all over the world. For houses that need less power output, 5 kilowatt (5kW) solar systems are the best choice. They are highly preferred for good energy yields and a great return on investment.

  • Panels & Roof Space for A 5kW Solar System

When it comes to panels, a modern day 5kW solar system comprises of about 15-20 panels. These panels will need around 25-35 m2 of roof space. The space needed also depends on the wattage of the panels you are planning to install.

  • Costs Involved in Installing a 5kW Solar System

Because of the rising demand of solar in Australia, it is home to low cost solar PV systems in the world. The average cost of installing a 5kW solar panel system goes approximately to $1.03 per watt to $1.40 per watt.

  • Power Generation Output for a 5kW Solar System

The amount of power generated by a 5kW solar system depends on a number of factors, including:

  • Geographical location of the system
  • Orientation and tilt angle of the panel
  • Degree of shade cast on the panels
  • Operating temperature of the panels
  • Performance of all the components

Return on Investment for a 5kW Solar System

Investing in a 5kW solar panel system is one of the best choice a homeowner can make when it comes to going solar and producing their own energy. The financial returns from this installation is a bit harder to work out and depends on solar feed-in tariff available. This tariff includes the amount paid to the owner for each unit of solar power exported to the grid.
