Factors that Impact the Cost of Solar Panels

Before committing to getting a solar panel system, it’s important to keep in mind that the cost can vary significantly based on the city you live in, as well as other factors. Find out more about the other elements that will influence your solar panel costs.

1. System Size and Quality

The most obvious factor that impacts the cost of solar panels is the size of the system you purchase. Generally speaking, the larger the solar panel array, the more costly it will be. However, this doesn’t always translate to increased energy savings. The quality of the solar panels you purchase as well the type of hardware and accessory equipment you use can boost performance. Optimizing the efficiency of your solar panel system will depend on a variety of factors, including how much energy you use, the build of your roof, the local weather conditions, and more.

2. Labor Costs

Labor and transportation costs can impact the cost of solar panel installation. A good installation company will include its labor costs into the quote. However, these costs can vary dramatically depending on your location, the size of the array, and even the individual installation company. To get the best deal, be sure to obtain quotes from several different installers in your city. for more info`s on installation cost and process contact us at : https://www.energytracks-sa.com/home/contact-us/

3. Home Type

The build of your roof will influence the cost of the solar panels themselves, as well as how complex the installation process will be. If your roof is small, it may not be able to accommodate larger solar panel arrays, which will cost more. An optimal roof for housing solar panels has an average pitch that isn’t too steep or too shallow, and is also oriented to face south or west. While solar panels can be installed on less-than-ideal roofs, it will decrease the efficiency of the system overall and lower your energy savings overall. Multi-tiered or oddly shaped roofs will drive up costs by making the installation process more complicated.

4. Location

While solar panel costs are relatively affordable everywhere, your location will influence a number of factors that contribute to the overall cost and efficiency of your system.

Solar Panels-the First Step Towards Installation

Before deciding how many solar panels you need, it’s best to reduce your current electricity usage as much as possible. Doing this will make your system more cost effective. Making small and simple changes to your electricity usage can make a huge impact on your electricity bill from Saudi Electricity Company (SEC). 

It`s so important to start making changes with your big appliances. They are a major part of your electricity consumption and you can make big gains by switching to more efficient models. Switching to Energy Star compliant appliances is a great way to go about it. 

There are a lot of small investments and also personal habits that you can do right now that take a big part in reducing your electricity usage. What a lot of this comes down to is habit. Just like many people have habits of wasting electricity whether they realize or not, those habits can easily be reversed by starting more energy saving habits. Lets take a look at a few things for starters:

-Turn off lights in rooms not being used. You could take it a step further by purchasing LED Lights .

-Get in the habit of turning off your computer monitor. Instead of leaving your computer on, make sure you have it in sleep mode, or better yet, turn it off when not in use.

-Run your dishwasher and wash your clothes at night. A lot of utility companies have rating scales where they will charge you more during peak hours.

-Insulate your water heater. you can buy a installation wrap that goes around your water heater so it doesn’t work as hard to heat the water. 

-Clean or replace air filters when needed.

-Use low-flow shower heads so you use less hot water

-Take showers instead of baths, they use half the amount of hot water.

Pick up a Kill-A-Watt meter. This is a good way to determine what the big electricity wasters are. You can get them from us ,meters measure the power used from any device that gets plugged into the wall.

General principles : An Early Streamer Emission Air Terminal (ESEAT) is composed of one striking point, emission device and a fixing element and a connection to the down-conductors. The area protected by an ESEAT is determined according to its efficiency . The ESEAT should preferably be installed on the highest part of the structure. It shall be the highest point within the area to be protected.
