How many square feet of your roof do solar panels take up?

    It depends on how much energy you want to get from them.  1 square foot of solar panels produces 8-10 watts of energy.  Depending on how much energy you need or want, this could change how much surface area you need.  The average house needs a 4-5 kw system, so that would probably be around 500 square feet, but this really does depend on the energy needs of your house.
