Jaén is an optimal area for the installation of this type of self-consumption systems. As we can see in the graph, if, for example, a peak power of 3.4 kWp is installed, with an angle of inclination of the plates of 33º and contemplating a system loss of 14%, the annual production of photovoltaic energy in Jaén it would be 5,574.42 kWh. The months of greatest production are from May to August with 525.77; 539.09; 569.59 and 561.61 kWh, each of these four months, with an annual irradiation in the plane of 2,126.41 kWh/m2. Note that the result of the PV calculation is the monthly and annual average energy production of the PV system.

In Jaén, the Red Eléctrica de España (REE) indicates that Spanish households consume an average of 9 kWh per day and approximately 270 kWh per month, which represents about 3,240 kWh/year. Likewise, that the prices of electricity from Jaén in 2021-2022 have averaged around €0.225/kWh (€225/MWh), so that a household without a solar energy system that annually consumes from the network these 3,240 kWh would pay around €730 per year in the variable part of the electricity bill referring to consumption.

Inclination and orientation of solar panels in Jaén

In Spain, the ideal average inclination of the panels varies between 20º and 40º since it is directly related to the latitude of the country. The closer a city is to the equator, the less the angle of inclination of the panels will be, since the sun's rays will strike perpendicularly.

Although the inclination of the photovoltaic installations in most homes in Spain is between 20º and 35º, the solar panels in Jaén face south with an approximate inclination of 33º to achieve maximum performance.

It should be noted that the south facing solar panels in Jaén will produce the most energy, but if you want to place the modules facing east or west it is also worth it, especially if you need to cover electricity needs in the morning, or later in the afternoon, respectively, increasing the home's own electricity consumption.
