    About 165 square feet.

    “Suppose you want to design a 2kw solar matrix for your home and you have chosen a 175watt panel with a width of 808mm (or 2.6509 feet) and length of 1580mm (or 5.1837 feet). Given that you are targeting 2kw as your matrix size it will take 12 of these solar panels to equal 2.1kw, and 12 of these solar panels will cover an area of approximately 165 square feet” (

    2 kw of solar power can run anywhere between $11,000-$30,000 depending on the type of kit, instillation, and type of system you choose to install. 

    Remember, if you live in the US, you can get tax credits for up to 30% of the cost of the solar system you install w/no limit!
