Residential Solar Panel Installation
Custom Design Of A Solar System For Your Home
When discussing solar panels, one of the key things to keep in mind is that when we receive a new project, we must start from the very beginning of the process in order to fulfill that project.
What do I mean by this?
I mean that each home is different, which means that each installation process is going to be unique.
Important Factors That Make A Difference
Factors such as the angle of your roof, the architectural layout of your home, and the positioning of your house (among other factors), are things which are all taken into account when solar panels are being installed. The bottom line is that each installation is different and that a lot of work goes into each and every project.
It’s also worth noting that ground-mounted solar panels are an option, however you must have sufficient space in your yard. Not sure about the space available you need either for roof-mounted or ground-mounted solar panels? Request a free consultation.
How Long is the Installation Process?
When hiring us to work on your home, the first thing that pops into your head is a huge project involving several work men and scaffolding around your home for weeks on end. With solar panels, this is not the case. The entire installation process usually takes between 2 or 3 days max., and after those days, your solar panels are ready to go.
With that in mind, while solar panels are often a big step forward in the right direction, the project itself is surprisingly small! Rather than having to pay contractors for weeks of work and disturbance, you will feel no disruption and you can spend those next few weeks enjoying the new electrical source that you have implemented into your home!
How effective are my solar panels with cloudy weather or weather conditions such as fog and rain?
Under cloudy and rainy weather conditions, solar panels drop productivity to 30% – 90% depending on how heavy the rain and clouds are. But solar panels will still work.
If for example a cloud cover is at its worst, your panels might produce only 5-10% of the energy they normally do. And for example in the case of foggy days, a thin layer of fog has much less impact on solar energy output. What really matters is how much sunshine your roof receives over the course of a whole year, not on a given day. Cloudy, foggy or rainy weather is not common in California, as you know.
Solar Panels and Snow
The slick glass surface, which layers a solar panel prevents the snow from remaining there and helps with sliding the snow off. However, if you notice that there is snow that won’t budge, the last thing you should do is climb up onto your roof and try to get it off yourself! Instead, try spraying the snow with a hose. Remember, safety is a priority regardless of what you are trying to achieve.
