74kW Solar System Information – Facts & Figures

74kW Solar Power System Information

Did you know that 74kW solar power systems can consist of a different number of panels depending on the size of the solar panels? Here are some common panel sizes which could make up a 74kW system:

  • 240W (308 x solar panels to make 74kW)
  • 250W (296 x solar panels to make 74kW)
  • 260W (285 x solar panels to make 74kW)
  • 300W (247 x solar panels to make 74kW)
  • 330W (225 x solar panels to make 74kW)


How Much Does a 74kW System Produce?

Depending on where in Australia (or around the world) you are, a 74kW solar system will produce a different amount of energy each day. As an average amount, you can see here how much this system will produce in some of the major regions in Australia by switching between each tab.

Brisbane

A 74kW solar system in Brisbane is expected to produce around 113,442kWhs each year (on average). This takes into account cloudy days, rainy days and the like.

Sydney

A 74kW solar system in Sydney is expected to produce around 105,339kWhs each year (on average). This takes into account cloudy days, rainy days and the like.

Perth

A 74kW solar system in Perth is expected to produce around 118,844kWhs each year (on average). This takes into account cloudy days, rainy days and the like.

Melbourne

A 74kW solar system in Melbourne is expected to produce around 97,236kWhs each year (on average). This takes into account cloudy days, rainy days and the like.

Adelaide

A 74kW solar system in Adelaide is expected to produce around 113,442kWhs each year (on average). This takes into account cloudy days, rainy days and the like.

Hobart

A 74kW solar system in Hobart is expected to produce around 94,535kWhs each year (on average). This takes into account cloudy days, rainy days and the like.

Canberra

A 74kW solar system in Canberra is expected to produce around 116,143kWhs each year (on average). This takes into account cloudy days, rainy days and the like.

Darwin

A 74kW solar system in Darwin is expected to produce around 118,844kWhs each year (on average). This takes into account cloudy days, rainy days and the like.

How Much Space Does a 74kW Solar System Need?

Again, this depends what type of panels you use (in part). This is because as panels get large (in Watts) they also become a little bit more efficient. A 74kW system using 250W panels will require about 125.8 square meters of roof to be installed. Each 250W panel measures about 1.7m x 1m.



74kW Solar System Applications

74kW solar power systems are mostly suitable for Larger businesses with high energy needs. This size of solar power system is classed as "Commercial/Industrial".

74kW Solar System Pricing

A 74kW solar system will certainly cost a different amount depending on the solar business you buy it from. Prices also vary from city to city due to logistics, taxes etc. To give you some indication though, we believe that the "market price" for a 74kW solar system at the moment is between:
$85,100.00 (on the lower end - e.g. cheap Chinese) to...
$129,500.00 (on the higher end - e.g. tier 1 solar panels and a German inverter - such as SMA).

NOTE: The Prices above are "after-rebate" prices and are only a guide to what you might expect as at November, 2015.

How Much Does a 74kW System Cost?

The cost of 74kW solar power systems varies. On the lower end, you might expect to get Chinese inverters such as Sungrow, Growatt, JFY, Samil etc. and Chinese (lower-tier) panels such as Hannover, Munsterland, ZN Shine etc. You might expect to pay $85,100.00 for such a system.

On the higher end of the spectrum you might be looking at a premium, European inverter like SMA, ABB, Fronius etc. and a tier 1 panel like SUNPOWER, TRINA, WINAICO etc. You might expect to pay $129,500.00 for this type of 74kW solar power system.

Finance Repayments on a 74kW Solar Power System

You could expect to pay somewhere between $2,619.25 and $3,979.32 per month as a repayment for your 74kW solar power system.
Note: This figure could vary drastically. It is based on some common solar power finance rates for residential size systems.

Do I Need A 74kW Solar System?

Whether or not you need a 74kW solar system will depend on many things.

If you are a Commercial/Industrial customer and you use between 299.7kWhs and 446.8kWhs then a 74kW solar system could be a good choice to help reduce power bill costs.
