Beware: The Practice of Misleading System Sizing
In any industry, there are those who mislead (unknowingly or intentially)
in pursuit of the easy sale. The solar industry is unfortunately not immune to this
What may sound like a great deal may in reality be an
under-performing & difficult to expand system or worse, an over-priced & energy-wasting
Optimized battery sizing is paramount. Generac offers a broader range of battery sizes than Tesla, which provides many more paths to accurately "right-size" your battery, so you don’t buy a battery that is too big or too small.
The math behind sizing a Solar PV system is inherently complex, even for a highly-trained solar professional, which is why we created our exclusive “System
Sizer”™ application. With the app, we can quickly determine the perfect balance of number of solar panels panel and battery size you’ll need.
We hear about it often. New owners of PV Solar discover that they over- or under-purchased after it’s too late. In most cases, we find that the errant sizing is simply the result of an underinformed salesperson, oblivious of any error.
Sometimes, though, the problem is a result of misleading marketing practices.
