Can I just add solar panels to my system? You’ve purchased a solar panel system that’s too small for your home. Either it’s not providing enough power for your home, or you want to be able to sell more energy to the grid. Can you add more solar panels to the roof to upgrade the existing system? Yes, you can.
Is it worth adding extra solar panels? Adding more solar panels to your system will increase the amount of energy your home produces, and if you have extra space on your roof, installation can be a relatively simple process.
Is it easy to add more solar panels to an existing system? It’s relatively easy to add panels to an existing system; many of the more difficult steps, such as tying your system to the grid, will already be complete.
