Sizing Solar Is A Balancing Act: Supply Vs. Demand
The goal with solar is to match your new system’s power supply to your house’s power demand. You want to hit the perfect balance. Not too big and not too small – just the right size for YOUR needs.
An undersized system will not make as much power as you need. You’ll buy the remainder from NV Energy at the total price. So, you’ll see a bigger-than-expected power bill after you go solar. You can always add panels later to meet this remaining demand.
An oversized system will produce more power than you need, creating more buyback credits than you can use. Buyback credits are just that, credits. They are never converted into money in your hand. They roll over on your bill until used. So, you will never recover the upfront cost of those extra panels. No one gets rich selling solar to the power company.
Finding the Balance
Your solar system will be sized based on how much power you used in the last 12 months OR by square footage for brand-new construction or a new-to-you house. This is why every solar company you talk to will ask for a copy of your most recent power bill or what your square footage is.
What if I Want a Bigger System Now?
If you want more solar panels than NV Energy will approve, an Electrical Engineer has to justify that demand with a Load Calculation Letter. NV Energy will only allow PROVABLE requests for oversizing. You won’t be allowed to oversize your system because you think you’ll get an electric car in 4 years, but you would be allowed to oversize with a signed contract for a swimming pool or a new AC installed in the garage. Remember, your system should be sized to give you the needed power. Buying extra panels now for a load you’ll maybe add in 2 years is not an intelligent investment.
What if I Need More Power in a Few Years?
Yes, you can add panels later! Once the system is turned on, you may add panels anytime. The most common reasons to count on are getting a new pool or spa, buying an electric car, or having someone recently move into your house.
