Alternative Energy Systems: Size and Cost

You need to decide how much of your energy you want supplied by your solar electric system. If you want to be entirely independent, you will have to buy a large solar PV array. The same goes if you want to provide the bulk of power to your home: a large solar panel array will be needed.
