6kW solar panel systems are designed to power large homes or properties, housing families of 5 people. This solution will guarantee your energy demand as well as make your house more eco-friendly. The size of the system allows it to generate just about the right amount of electricity required to meet the daily needs of a large household.
How many solar panels you need for this sized system depends on the wattage of the individual panel. Typically, a 6kW solar panel system using 250 watt panels will require 24 solar panels.
Keep in mind that 6kW solar panel systems are quite big and you will need more than 40 m2 free roof space, plus a little extra room in your attic (usually for the inverter used to convert the current into a usable one). In return for this investment, a 6kW solar panel system can supply an ample amount of free electricity to help you save big on your utility bills.

It is difficult to set a fixed price for a 6kW solar system, but it is sensible to say that the expected investment would start from around £9,000. 6kW solar panel systems can easily go above £10,000, however, their serious energy output gives them one of the quickest payback periods. More information can be provided from your supplier, which has to be MCS certified if you are to qualify for the feed-in tariff.
The Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) is a new type of solar panel funding that is available in the UK. Under this scheme, energy suppliers with over 150,000 customers are obligated to offer an export tariff for electricity fed back to the National Grid. Energy suppliers with fewer customers can offer the tariff on a voluntary basis.
Making use of this kind of a scheme can reduce your overall solar panel costs.
A typical 6kW solar panel system is capable of generating an estimated electrical output ranging from 400 to 900kWh per month and an electricity yield in the range of 4,800 to 10,800 kWh per year.
|Time period||Electricity production (kWh)||Equivalent power used (enough to run for 24 hours daily)|
|Year||4,800–10,800||Enough to power a small to medium-sized home|
|Month||400–900||Enough to power an electric car|
|Day||13–30||Enough to run a fridge, TV, dishwasher, washing machine, and a computer|
