How much area is required to install a rooftop solar project

Submitted by on 13 June 2022

Area required for an off-site solar project depends on multiple factors, such as: Location of the project, Wattage of Modules, and Design and engineering, among various others. However, a rough estimate is that for a 1 MW on-site solar plant, one needs ~10,000 sqm shade-free roof area.
