Solar energy potential in Zaragoza

Spain is in an excellent situation in terms of solar energy and within this, Zaragoza specifically, has an exceptional amount of sunshine since it is a region of the country that receives 2,620 hours of sunshine per year. This figure places it as privileged when it comes to installing photovoltaic systems.

We well know, the same amount of photovoltaic energy is not produced in the north of Europe as in the south of the continent, and the same thing happens in Spain with the cities of the north and those of the south. Zaragoza is a privileged city thanks to the number of hours of sunshine (3,316) and the high solar irradiation of 5.9 kWh/m2. This results in high photovoltaic energy production in homes and businesses, and therefore their solar energy potential.

Zaragoza is an optimal area for the installation of this type of self-consumption systems. If a peak power of 4.8 kWp is installed, considering a system loss of 14%, the annual production of photovoltaic energy in Zaragoza would be 7,778.44 kWh, where the months of greatest production are July and August with 803.47 kWh and 789 kWh, respectively. Note that the result of the PV calculation is the monthly and annual average energy production of the PV system.

In Zaragoza, 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. In addition, the REE has also indicated that electricity prices from the Zaragoza grid in 2021-2022 have averaged around €0.225/kWh (€225/MWh), so that a household without a solar energy system that consumes monthly from the network these 270 kWh would pay around €60 per month on your bill, in the variable part of electricity consumption.

Inclination and orientation of the solar panels in Zaragoza

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 Zaragoza face south with an approximate inclination of 36º to achieve maximum performance.

It should be noted that the south-facing solar panels in Zaragoza will produce the most energy. However, 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 more in the afternoon, respectively, increasing the home's own electricity consumption.
