What Does A 5kW Solar System Look Like
A 5kW solar system in 2021 will typically have around 14-16 solar panels. With 330W panels we would use 16 panels, for the high-efficiency panels rated at 370W, we would use 14 panels which would give you will have a 5.18kW system. The panels are 1.7m by 1m, and for a 5kW system, we typically install the panels in 2 rows of 7 or 8 panels.
