Solar Panels

Solar panels are the essence of solar power in many ways. There are plenty of myths around the use of these panels, so we want to talk about how we determine how many panels each home or building needs. Another common misunderstanding is that you may not have enough room on your property to install them. That disqualifies many people from going solar. What we can say about many of these ideas is that maybe the best way to clear up any doubts that you may have is to contact us directly. Have the experts help you explore the different options that you may have to go solar.

How Many Solar Panels Do I Need to Power My Home?

This is essentially the first question that every customer has about solar panels. The idea that many of them have is that if they can power the home with few panels, they’ll be better off. That’s not necessarily true. You usually want to have a bit of extra energy that you can send back into the grid. Maybe having one more panel than you need will cost more on the front end but will pay for itself quickly.  

Why Most People Install Them In The Roof

You probably don’t want solar panels taking up your yard or patio space. That’s why most people are going to install them on the roof. It’s not a must, though. Each person has the ability to choose where they want their panels to be installed. We’re also going to be making recommendations depending on the positions that we believe may benefit the panels more. What we mean by that is that we want the panels to get as much sunlight as possible. That’s going to allow them to harvest the maximum amount of energy.

How Long Do They Last?

If there’s one question that every single potential client ends up asking, it’s this one. With that in mind, we felt rather obligated to provide a quick answer. Panels usually last 25 to 30 years. With some of the new developments in this technology, the hope is that their harvesting ability can remain consistent, especially through the later stages of their lifespan. A good thing to keep in mind is that solar power is a developing industry. In 30 years' time, there may be very effective ways to repurpose equipment, or just getting new ones may be way cheaper than it is today.

Building a Custom Set-Up For Your Property

All of the systems that we build are essentially custom-built. This is because homes may have a different layout and more or less property to place solar panels around. We say this to say that as a potential customer, you shouldn’t discard solar energy as a possibility, even if you have a smaller home. Give us a call or contact, and we’ll be able to explore some of the different possibilities that could be available for you. Don’t think that just because you don’t see enough room, nothing can be done.
