The amount of electricity generated depends on factors such as panel efficiency, orientation, shading, and location. An installer can provide a more accurate estimate based on your specific situation.

What happens on cloudy or rainy days?

Solar panels can still generate electricity on cloudy or rainy days, although the output will be lower compared to sunny days.

Do I need a battery with my solar panel system?

Batteries are optional but can provide energy storage, allowing you to use solar power during the night or during power outages. They can increase energy independence.
