What Solar Panels Work Best in Arizona?

At first glance, all solar panels look the same. But there are actually a few different types of panels on the market. These solar panels convert the sun’s excess energy into electricity.

The good news is you don’t have to be a technical expert to select which panel is best for you and your situation. At Meraki Solar, we thoroughly evaluate your solar system options and will help design the most efficient solar panel system for your home to meet all of your wants and needs.

How Much Energy Will You Get From Your AZ Solar Panel System?

The average solar panel produces about 200-400 Watts/hour, accumulating to around 2kW per day. For perspective, a 2kW solar system may be able to power several home appliances when they’re in production!

However, the realized amount of energy production you get from your solar system depends on a few different factors, including the roof design, types of panels, and climate conditions. These are essential factors to consider for your residential system. Fortunately, in Arizona, the average daily sunlight is higher than in most states, and sunny days are more often than not. Our local solar installers can help you calculate how many panels you will need to cover your energy needs and provide the best solar panels Arizona offers.

Are Solar Panels worth it in Arizona?

Arizona is considered one of the sunniest places in the US. Its seasons provide plenty of sunlight all year round to generate electricity for your home.

Due to the unique opportunity Arizona residents have, the answer is yes! It is worth it to install solar panels. In addition to powerful sunlight, you may be able to take advantage of many Arizona financial incentives and tax breaks if you qualify. Available options include a solar loan, lease, tax credit, or net metering program.

  • Solar panels produce renewable energy, which has a positive effect on climate change
  • The more sunshine your panels receive, the more money you can save!

Our local experts will help you maximize your electricity production with your personalized solar panel system, giving you back control over your home’s energy. We at Meraki are dedicated to serving you and are happy to assist you in beginning your solar journey.
