Residential solar installations run from a measly 2kW to a monstrous 25kW (or even bigger). Twenty-five kilowatts (kW) is a huge solar installation (at least for residential projects), equal to about 100 solar panels.
Don’t have that much space on your roof? Don’t worry! Most installations, such as the 5kW solar system, are well below that size. Most of us don’t even use enough electricity to warrant an installation that big! In fact, according to the National Renewable Energy Lab (p.5), the average installation is about 5.6kW.
Today, let’s take a peek at a 5kW installation to understand exactly how big that is, how much you can expect to pay for one, and how much you can save by installing a system of this size.Continue reading

We do a lot of reviews on various solar manufacturers, installers, and service companies here because we want to give people who are interested in solar a leg up when it comes to choosing what is best for them. To continue with that mission, here is our far-ranging SolarWorld review.
SolarWorld has been the largest producer of solar panels in the U.S for more than 40 years, and although they have a global presence, they have a clear commitment to being involved with the country's economy. Most of the panels sold here, for instance, are produced on U.S. soil, and they make every effort to purchase supplies and parts from other American companies.
