The Ultimate Off Grid Solar Watt Hour Calculator
Figure out how much solar you need easily!
The first step in figuring out how many solar panels you need and what size of off-grid solar power system will work for you, is to know how much energy you use on a daily basis. No matter how big or how small, the first step is always calculating how many watts per day you will need.
We created this off-grid solar load calculator in order to help you quickly and easily add up all of your daily energy consumption and get this total in watts.
A couple points before we get started. We generally advise against adding any appliances that can be propane-fuelled, such as cooktops, hot water heaters and electric heat as these won't require any of the solar power we're harnessing.
If you'd like to know the EXACT watts of the specific appliance you're going to be using, you can usually find this on the back of most appliances, under their "energy use information" and you can enter these manually.
