ABSTRACT
The article discusses the steps for sizing a home solar-electric system. These steps include determining how many kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity the off-grid home will require each day, calculating how many solar panels it will take to provide the off-grid home, and sizing the battery bank. In calculating solar panels, it suggests using Redbook, a portable document format (PDF) file online from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory's venerated Solar Radiation Data Manual for Flat-Plate and Concentrating Collectors.
