In addition to your home’s energy usage, there are a few other factors to consider when sizing your solar system. If you’re planning on adding an electric vehicle (EV) to your household, you’ll want to account for the additional electricity you’ll need to charge it. A good rule of thumb is to add 300-400kWh to your solar system for an EV. You should also take into account how many miles you drive in a day. If you’re planning on growing your family in the near future, you may want to consider that as well. An additional child can increase your home’s energy usage by 20-30%. If you’re planning on building out your home in the near future, that’s something else to factor in. By taking all of these things into consideration, you can be sure that your solar system will be sized correctly for your needs.
