Cost of a 10kw Solar System

Cost of a 10kw Solar System

The solar photovoltaic power generation system is composed of solar panels, controllers, batteries, and inverter power supplies. It is mainly used for power supply of equipment for household electricity. It can be used for lighting, household appliances, and industrial facilities. The solar photovoltaic power generation system is not restricted by the grid and does not need to erect lines, so it is a zero-investment power generation system. Solar photovoltaic power generation systems are widely used and can meet the needs of most users for electric energy, especially in remote areas, islands and places where the power grid is difficult to reach, and can ensure users’ uninterrupted electricity consumption. The use of solar photovoltaic power generation systems in households can greatly reduce the cost of electricity.

How much is the cost of a household 10 KW solar photovoltaic power generation system?

  • Solar panel: the power is 500W, about $0.25/watt, and the weight is about 25 kg
  • Inverter: the power is 400W, about $1.9/watt;
  • Battery: a lithium ion battery pack with a capacity of about 48V 200AH;
  • Controller: a controller with a power of about 10 KW (1000W);
  • The installation cost of the inverter is generally around US$100. The specific installation cost will also be affected by factors such as the installation location, materials used, installation method and construction party.

What are the benefits of installing a solar photovoltaic power generation system at home?

1. Construction requirements

  • The roof is made of cement or ceramic tiles, and there is no water leakage. Waterproof measures are not required. It is best to use solar cell modules with waterproof connectors during installation.
  • The installation of photovoltaic modules needs to avoid the exterior wall of the building, which can be decided according to the specific situation.
  • Solar cell modules are required to be installed at a higher position (more than 1 meter above the ground) to ensure maximum power generation.
  • Avoid installing solar panels at noon when there is direct sunlight, because the solar radiation is strongest at this time.
  • It is strictly forbidden to install the solar power generation system in rainy days or strong winds to avoid fire and personal injury accidents.

2. Design and installation

When designing and installing a solar photovoltaic power generation system, it needs to be designed and installed according to the actual situation of the family and the surrounding environment.

Generally speaking, it needs to be considered comprehensively based on factors such as the orientation, area, and surrounding environment of the roof. The solar photovoltaic power generation system needs to choose a suitable solar panel according to the actual situation, and during the installation process, it needs to be installed in accordance with the requirements of the specifications. Be careful not to install the photovoltaic panel near flammable and explosive materials.

3. Construction costs

The general cost of installing a home photovoltaic power generation system includes:

  • The cost of processing and manufacturing solar panels (components);
  • Purchase costs of inverters, controllers and other equipment;
  • The construction cost of the construction team (installation company).

Among them, the processing and production of solar panels and the procurement of inverters and controllers require professional enterprises.

Generally, manufacturers will provide solar panels of different specifications and sizes, and then professionals will process and manufacture them, and choose according to user needs. The prices of solar panels, inverters, and controllers of different manufacturers, models, and specifications vary greatly.

In addition, the installation of household photovoltaic power generation systems generally needs to be installed by professional companies. If you do not know the relevant knowledge and install it yourself, it may be dangerous. Therefore, the installation of solar photovoltaic power generation systems must be operated by professionals and tested.

4. Operation and maintenance

  • Regularly maintain and clean the photovoltaic system to ensure the normal operation of the photovoltaic system.
  • Regularly check photovoltaic cell components, test inverters, and replace damaged components and inverters.
  • Check the status of the controller in time to ensure its normal operation and avoid failures.
  • Regularly check the status of the battery and replace the aging battery in time.
  • Regularly check the operation of the inverter to avoid damage to the inverter.

5. Investment cost

In rural areas, it is very easy to install a solar photovoltaic system. Because houses in rural areas often have no roofs and are left unattended. Thus, solar panels can be installed directly on the roof of the house. Secondly, if there is idle land at home, you can also use it yourself. Just make sure that the solar panels are not exposed to wind, sun, and rain. Finally, some rural areas are not covered by the grid.
