: I am trying to get a list/price check on making a home solar panel system
I was hoping for someone to look over what i have and add/remove things.

was looking at this type of solar panel: x4
ebay /itm/Canadian-Solar-CS6P-250-Watt-Poly-Solar-Panel-/251195936964?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3a7c71d0c4

lead acid battery: x2
ebay /itm/100AMP-HOUR-12VOLT-RECHARGEABLE-DEEP-CYCLE-SEALED-LEAD-ACID-BATTERY-12V-100AH-/171041590356?pt=US_Rechargeable_Batteries&hash=item27d2df8c54

Power Inverter:
ebay /itm/New-Grid-Tie-Power-Inverter-1000Watt-Solar-Panel-10-5V-to-28V-Generator-EU-Plug-/271195548629?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3f2483abd5

i have no idea what charge controller i should look for.

If you can think of anything more that would be needed or if something wont work.

Thank you.

: There are many factors used to calculte the energy and the best sized system for not just your needs but also your budget and for payback.

Most importantly is how many maximum KiloWatt hours do you need per day as well as how many *average* KiloWatt hours do you need per day. This can be found on your electric bill. A typical household uses 30,000 KWh per day which translates to a 3KW solar panel system of (12) 250W solar panels with an average of 10 hours of sunlight.

I would recommend grid tied initially and you can go for batteries later. Just have a professional install it or you won't get the tax credits from the State and the Fed.

Also make sure that you don't pay more than $2 per watt for the panels (lowest prices are below $1 per watt for quantity) and no more than $1 per watt for the inverter (lowest prices are below $0.50 per watt).
