Location and demand. How many KWH do You use per Year? Where you are located use Pvwatt2 on the net to see how much you can generate.

Back to the question we need to know the roof slope, shade, type of roof, He can go to pvwatt.nrel.gov and find some more information. Even in Arizona there is the high desert where evaporator cooling will work and the low desert where a person needs a heat pump or AC. No one can answer by only having the square ft. our the charge for net metering that will also be important.

Flagstaff, Phoenix, Tucson, or Benson AZ. All have Different answers. Benson has a rural electric co-op, Tucson you can still use swap cooler. but APS is not as good to deal with. Phoenix is a bit hotter so heat pumps or AC will be needed, SRP is better then APS but not the same as rural. Flagstaff you focus more on heating and can reduce the loads and it might just be better to go off grid. One size doesn't fit all.
