17 Sep Where Can I Put Solar Panels?
Solar panels are so important for the year 2020. They are a huge contributor to the decrease in greenhouse gases into the air. Along with this, they are continuing to save so many of our customers money. If solar is new for you, you may be wondering about all of the different places where solar panels can be installed. Well, here are just a few of those places that solar energy can be installed.
Your average home has a shingled roof. This is a great location for solar panels. Our team of experts is able to calculate the exact angle that your panels need to be placed and positioned. Along with this, your shingled roof is a great spot for your panels to be securely placed. Both of these elements are the perfect combination to help save you money.
As you can imagine, solar on a patio roof can offer many benefits for homeowners. If you’re considering adding one to your property, consider this list of solar panel advantages before you land on your final decision:
- They don’t require additional land like ground-mounted panels do.
- They allow you to go solar without affecting your home’s curb appeal.
- In some cases, installing solar panels makes you eligible for a state or federal rebate.
Like any other rooftop installation, your flat roof must meet a certain set of criteria before solar panels can be added. Specifically, the angle, orientation, and size of your roof must meet region-specific conditions. In certain states, the steeper the angle of your roof’s pitch, the greater the amount of energy your solar panels will produce.
Installing solar panels on traditional roofs usually requires drilling holes to attach mounting equipment. However, this can be avoided thanks to installation methods unique to each type of metal roof, including:
- Standing seam roofs: A mounting system can be attached to the seam of your roof with clamps, avoiding the need for holes and speeding up the installation process.
- Metal tile roofs: If your roof uses metal tiles that give the appearance of shingles, the installer can replace some of them with mounting shingles where solar panels can be attached. This nifty solution maintains the protection that shingles provide from moisture and the elements.
- Corrugated metal roofs: Roofs with this construction will probably necessitate drilling holes. Mounting equipment is installed in the holes, and the solar panels are placed on top as would be done on an asphalt roof.
