## Free Solar Offset Calculator

Find out how much of your energy consumption can be covered by solar energy.

### How to Use the Solar Offset Calculator

To use the solar offset calculator:

- Input your monthly energy consumption in kilowatt-hours (kWh).
- Enter the capacity of your solar system in kilowatts (kW).
- Click on "Calculate Solar Offset" to find out what percentage of your energy needs can be covered by solar energy.

## How the Solar Offset Calculator Works

The solar offset calculator estimates the percentage of your monthly energy consumption that can be met by the energy produced by your solar system. The calculator factors in your solar system’s capacity and compares it to your energy usage.

## Example of Using the Solar Offset Calculator

**Input:**

- Monthly Energy Consumption: 1000 kWh
- Solar System Capacity: 5 kW

**Output:**

Solar Offset: **50%** (calculated as follows: **(Solar System Capacity * 30 * 4 hours/day) / Energy Consumption**)

## What is a Solar Offset Calculator?

A solar offset calculator is a tool that helps estimate how much of your energy consumption can be covered by solar power. It takes into account your energy consumption and the capacity of your solar system to provide a percentage of energy offset by solar.

## Formula

The formula to calculate solar offset is:

**Solar Offset (%) = (Solar System Capacity (kW) * 30 days * average sun hours per day) / Monthly Energy Consumption (kWh) * 100**
