Is my premise right for solar?
Thinking about switching to solar ? Got several questions in mind about your place? Trust your solar installer, a good company will look into all aspects with a proper site study before finalising your project.
Let’s begin! It is important for you to know the different aspects involved in making the right decisions.
It’s very important to know how suited your roof is for solar panels, so before you schedule your solar installation we’ll get on the roof and review the overall condition of your roof. There are many factors that will determine if your roof is right for solar panels, including the roof material, roof style and slope, sun exposure, roof direction.
The structural components of your home or office premise are important to review before installing solar. Qualified solar technicians take an in depth look at the composition of the roof framing members to ensure they can support the addition of solar panels. In case any damaged or weak areas are found, the same are suggested to be repaired before commencing work.
Solar electricians have extensive knowledge on all things electrical, and will look at the main electrical panel in your rooftop. If it’s not suitable for solar now, there are different options to upgrade it to newer equipment that will be more suitable for a solar home. The technicians will advise you of what options will make the best fit to go solar.
It’s important to make sure your solar panels will fit correctly on your rooftop! A good team of technicians will measure every surface and optimize the panel locations to ensure you get the most out of your system.
Shadows cast on solar panels from trees or buildings nearby that can significantly decrease their electricity production. The site surveyors will take imaging of nearby trees and other obstructions like neighboring homes or buildings. Qualified site design professionals will provide you with exact information on what will and what won’t shade the system on your roof.
