How many panels & how much roof space do I need for a 5kW solar system NSW?

To make up a 5kW solar system you need 20 solar panels, assuming you use 250W panels.  A modern-day 5kW solar system will be composed of around 15-20 panels and each panel will be about 1.6m x 1m. So you’ll need at least 20-40 m2 of roof space, depending on the power of the panels.

For illustration, here is a clear picture of 32m² roofs which may help you figure out how big it may look.
