More Information On Installing Solar Panels In Melbourne
Melbourne households and businesses have charged ahead with support for solar energy in recent years, with installations of solar panels becoming a common sight on rooftops throughout the Melbourne metropolitan area. The presence of PV across the city has also been supported by Victoria's solar panel rebate.
As well as the massive uptake of home solar power systems, a great example of a large PV system in Melbourne (and there are many) is installed at the city’s famous South Melbourne Market. The renovated roof was fitted out with 3,000 solar panels; part of the live Community Power project – an innovative program that was cleverly funded via shares sold to investors.

How Many Solar Panels Do You Need In Melbourne?
As to how big a system you’ll need in Melbourne – as a general guide, 1 kilowatt of solar panels will generate around 3.6 kilowatt-hours a day, averaged over a year. If you consume around 18 kilowatt-hours of electricity a day, a 5kW solar system could be a good size option for you.
But given the plummeting cost of solar panels and other components; we usually recommend a 6.6kW system as entry level in order to get better value for your money. These days and assuming your budget allows for it, filling your roof with solar panels in Melbourne can often be the best way to go.
Various factors come into play when sizing a system. A good solar installer will take those into account when quoting on the optimal installation for your requirements and will explain those factors to you in detail to assist you in your purchase decision.
