1. What is the size of a single solar panel?

Panels come in various sizes depending on size and manufacturer.

Our stock is 0.9m x 1.3m approximately with ratings of 200 w, 210w , 215w and 225w.  We sell complete rated systems. Therefore, individual panel size is not material in a large installation. The rated capacity is computed and the number of solar panels needed will have to be calculated to match the configuration.

 

2. Where is the best place to install the solar panel?  

Based on the type of solar panels, there are two venues to install the solar panels: (1) Roof-mounted which are mainly on roof tops and (2) Ground-mounted for large solar farms. Panels have to face south to have optimum efficiency.
