Most of the residential solar systems are roof-mounted or installed directly onto the structure of the home itself. For roof-mounted solar panels, mounts are secured on roof shingles. Then roof rails are installed over mounts to secure the solar panels. Roof mounts are the most common residential solar panel installation practice as they fit in seamlessly with the house.See our installations
Easy to install, ground mounts are preferred when there are concerns regarding roof square footage. If you have room on your property for a ground mount, they are very simple to design and install. Although ground-mounted residential solar panels will require an extra base layer to provide a firm structure.
Whether it’s a roof mount or a ground mount, installing solar panels for residential generally takes around two-five days, depending on the system size. After that, your solar energy system will be inspected by both the governing municipality and your utility company and then you’ll be up and running.
One of our solar specialists can complete a complimentary site evaluation to see where residential solar panel installation would best fit your property and draft a proposal, including initial system design, green energy rebates, tax credit amounts, and the total cost.
Solar cells in the modules mounted on your roof convert sunlight directly into DC power. A component called an inverter converts this DC power into AC power that can be used in your home. The system is interconnected with your utility. During the day, if your solar system produces more electricity than your home is using, your net meter will spin backward crediting your utility account for the excess power generated being returned to the grid. Your utility would provide power as usual at night and during the day when your electricity demand exceeds that produced by your solar system. Systems are also available with a battery backup. Part of the power produced by your solar system during the day is used to charge the batteries, which provide power for your critical loads in the event of a power outage.
No. Sunlight must be present for your solar modules to produce power. At night, you draw power from your utility, or batteries in an off-grid application.
Yes, though the system will produce less electricity. Under a light overcast sky, panels might produce about half as much as under full sun.
We offer two types of solar residential systems. One type of system powers your home during daylight hours, but does not provide power in an outage, even on a sunny day. Another type of system powers your home during daylight hours, but also has a battery backup designed to provide power to your home’s critical loads during an outage, day or night.
No. PV solar power systems are designed to provide electricity to run your lights, appliances, and other electric devices in your home, although the extra electricity can compensate for the extra usage incurred from electric heating devices.
Solar electric power works for most homes. Our systems are engineered to work with most roofing materials, in most locations where direct sunlight is available, in almost every region of the United States. You need a sunny place on your roof about 80 square feet for smaller systems, and up to 1,000 square feet for larger residential systems. Shading from trees or other obstructions can reduce the practicality of a specific installation. A south-facing roof area is optimal, but solar electric panels can be mounted on west- or east- facing roofs and still produce better than 90 percent of the power of a true south roof mounting.
Solar panel installations are usually considered additions to the home and should be covered by your home owners insurance. We encourage customers to call and notify their insurance company about their intent of installing a solar electric system.
