Yes, solar panels can power a house. In fact, many homes around the world are powered entirely by solar energy.

Solar panels work by converting sunlight into electricity. This electricity can then be used to power your home's appliances and lights. If you generate more electricity than you use, you can sell it back to the grid, which can help you save money on your energy bills.

The number of solar panels you need to power your home will depend on a number of factors, including the size of your home, your energy usage, and the amount of sunlight your roof receives. An MCS certified solar installer can help you determine how many solar panels you need and design a system that meets your specific needs.

There are a few different types of solar panel systems available. Grid-tied systems are the most common type. These systems are connected to the electrical grid, so you can still draw power from the grid when needed. Off-grid systems are not connected to the grid, so you need to have a battery storage system to store excess electricity for use at night or when the sun is not shining.

Solar panels are a clean and renewable source of energy. They can help you save money on your energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint. If you are considering installing solar panels, be sure to do your research and choose an MCS qualified installer.

Here are some of the benefits of powering your home with solar panels:

  • Save money on your energy bills
  • Reduce your carbon footprint
  • Increase the value of your home
  • Create jobs in the solar industry
  • Be more energy independent
