How much solar energy can you generate on your roof? The short answer? Probably way more than you need!

But a good rule of thumb for most places in North America is to calculate about 30 watts per square foot or 100-150 kWh/m per year. How many solar panels do I need for a 2000 sq ft home?
How much Sun do I need to charge my solar-powered security camera?
To keep your solar-powered security camera up and running, you need enough peak sun-hours to get it fully charged. Peak sun-hours are classified as an hour in which the sun provides 1,000 watts of power per square meter. The measurement refers to the intensity of sunlight, rather than the amount of time the sun is shining.
