Perfect for big family homes and small businesses.
10KW Solar System
Is a 10kW Solar System the Right Choice For You?
If you’re considering purchasing a 10kW solar system, you most likely have a large roof and an even larger power bill! Practically speaking, a 10kW solar system is the maximum size for a home solar system. Here is a photo of a 10kW system to give you an idea of how it may appear on your home – zero wasted space on this set-up.
How many solar panels will you require?
To build a 10kW solar system, you’ll need 27 solar panels, assuming they’re 370W each – that’s 9.99kW. Each panel will be approximately 1.8m x 1m, requiring a minimum of 48.6m2 of roof area. The above image may help you see how much room that is.

Your Solar Questions Answered
On average, a 10kW solar system will create around 40kWh per day. This amount is sufficient to power 2-3 typical Australian houses or one really inefficient home!
In other words…
To put this in context, a 40kWh per day can run about two ducted air conditioning systems on just about any hot or even cold Aussie day. OR four swimming pool pumps (smaller variety) operating approximately ten hours a day. OR Forty refrigerators (5 star rated) with a freezer on top or below but not side-by-side units; those things consume far more energy.
The amount of money you earn from a 10kW system is determined by three factors; just how much power you export, solar feed-in tariffs and how much of the electricity you consume yourself.
Variation of Solar Feed-in Tariffs
In Australia, feed-in rates range from 7c to 20c, this is dependent on your retailer. Assume an export price of 8 cents per kWh. The majority of individuals spend around 30 cents per kWh to purchase power from the grid. Therefore, let us explore three examples to illustrate how payback works.
3 Simple Solar Scenarios
1) You end up using all solar electricity exclusively in your fairly large house or business: You’ll save roughly $4500 in the first year. And approximately $150,000 over a 20-year period anticipating an annual electricity price increases of 5%.
2) You manage to export half of your electricity you produced: This will save you around $2700 during the first year.
3) You end up exporting 100% of your electricity: You’ll save around $1000 in the first year.
The conclusion of the scenario is that the more solar energy you self-consume, the faster your payback period will be. If this seems highly contradictory, you can learn more about the link between exporters and payback here.
You should receive around $8,000 in STCs (Small-scale Technology Certificates). Therefore, anticipate paying between $8,000 and $12,000 in out-of-pocket expenditures for a high-quality 10kW system installed properly by a highly reputable installer. The cost will vary depending on the components utilised — at the high end, it will include top-of-the-line panels, inverter, and racking; all installed by a “solar professional.”
If you use all of your power on-site, a 10kW system will pay for itself in less than five years, assuming you pay 30 cents per kWh from the grid and electricity costs continue to grow at a 5% annual rate. Following that, power is free, with the exception of a minor maintenance fee (about $500-$700 every five years) and an inverter replacement every 15-20 years.
