Solar+Storage System Sizes
- What is a typical solar+storage system size for my building type?
Average System Sizes for Commercial Buildings where Solar+Storage is Economical
as determined through cost-optimization modeling
(average of all cost points)
|Building Type||PV Size (kW)||Battery Capacity (kWh)||Battery Power (kW)||Avg. Capital Cost ($)||Avg. Net Present Value ($)|
|Full Service Restaurant||86||48||10||63,100||44,762|
|Fast Food Restaurant||48||34||6||34,829||24,640|
As a rule of thumb, a 10kW solar PV system would require about 1000 square feet of roof space. A 1MW ground mounted system would require approximately 6 acres of land.
