Will Solar Work For Me?

Is solar right for your home?

 

You know how many kilowatts of solar you need- but is a solar system right for your home?

 

 

Space:

Is there enough square footage on your roof to put fit your solar array?  Keep in mind that fire departments and municipalities will often require a certain amount of roof-space around the array. 

If you're limited to a small roof space, consider high efficiency solar panels or a ground-mounted solutions.

Roof: 

The ideal orientation for your solar array is true south, even though both East and West-facing roofs can also work.

Solar can be installed on just about any roof surface: composition shingle,spanish tile, flat or metal roof.

Remember:   Your solar system isn't going anywhere for at least 25 years so you should install the system with a roofer. When solar installers and roofers work in tandem, you can avoid voiding the roof's warranty.


Shading concerns: 

If you have any trees, chimneys, or anything that could shade your solar array, micro inverter systems are a better option than traditional string inverter systems.
