When it comes to exploring the potential of solar energy for your home, you may have come across various calculators that estimate solar energy outputs, costs, and potential savings. But what if there was an all-in-one tool that simplifies this process, eliminating the need to hunt down separate calculators for different aspects of your solar panel journey? That's where MakeMyHouseGreen's Solar Panel Calculator steps in.
Here's how it works:
Estimating Solar Energy Output
One of the fundamental questions anyone considering solar panels asks is, "How much energy will I generate?" Our solar energy calculator answers this with precision. By taking into account factors such as your location, roof orientation, and solar panel efficiency, our tool accurately calculates your annual energy output from solar panels.
But it doesn't stop there. We go the extra mile by providing a graph that showcases how much energy could be generated per hour, allowing you to visualise your potential solar energy production throughout the day.
Potential Solar Panel Savings
Saving money on your energy bills is a key motivator for going solar. Our calculator estimates your potential savings by considering the reductions in your energy bills and the additional earnings you can make through the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG).
The SEG is a government-backed initiative that allows you to sell your excess energy back to the grid, turning your solar panels into a money-making asset. By including SEG payments in our calculations, we provide you with a realistic view of how solar panels can impact your finances.
Number of Solar Panels Required
Curious about how many solar panels you'll need to achieve your desired energy output? Our solar panel calculator has you covered. It can estimate the number of solar panels required for your property, considering your energy consumption needs.
Want to see how adjusting the number of panels affects the cost and energy output? You can easily experiment with different scenarios using our tool, helping you find the perfect balance between energy goals and budget.
Calculating Solar Panel Costs
Understanding the costs involved in installing solar panels is crucial for any homeowner. Our calculator simplifies this by determining installation costs based on your chosen system size and location.
