The main electrical breaker panel in your home has a substantial impact on the installation of your system. The breaker panel’s main function is to distribute and supply electricity from the solar system to the main circuit breakers, thus powering the various parts of the home. Based on the year the home was built, there will be different types of electrical boxes and fuse bus in the electrical panel.
The amperage in the electrical panels varies depending on many different factors such as square footage, and the year the home was built.
In some situations, the main electrical panel will need to be upgraded so that it can handle the energy load from the solar system. During this process, we will look at the bus bar rating and look at the location the energy is fed into the main breaker of the panel. At this time, Solar Systems are not compatible with centrally located breakers, so your panel may have to be downsized to 150 amps. We will perform the main panel upgrade if the amp requirements are greater than 150 amps so that it can handle the amp load for your solar installation.
If we install a solar system that is 4.5 kilowatts or less with a 100-amp panel, the panel would have to be downsized. In this case, Oregon Solar Group will replace your panel with a new, more compact breaker to handle the solar generated energy.
Prior to the install, it is recommended to check the label sticker on the electric panel to see it’s amperage rating. With systems larger than 10 kilowatts, we will have to replace of update the main breaker.
Here’s what’s included in your Main electrical panel upgrade:
