    It all really depends on your installation and how much sun your panels will get, but just to give you an idea, I have Suniva 275W panels and Enphase M250 microinverters, and approximately 27 panels will generate 1,000kWh/month.

    A 10 kW system should supply most of your needs if the panels are able to be properly orientated.

    It's a good question of general interest. The best tool out there is PVWatts Calculator . You also need to know the losses associated with your proposed setup.
