Our Solar Panel Design Will Help You Lower Your Energy Bills
When you team up with us, we will visit your home or business and determine what type of system would best fit given its location. Solar panels work by converting the sun’s rays into green energy through photovoltaic panels. While you may think it’s as easy as installing them on your roof, there are a number of things to keep in mind, including:
1.Amount of shade in the area
Having a site that’s free of shade between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. is extremely important.
Azimuth is the word we use to tell which direction your house is facing, which is a very important consideration (North is 0, East is 90°, South is 180°, and West is 270°). The best facing roof is one that faces between 170° and 230°. Having a south– to southwest–facing roof is best for optimum sun exposure.
Tilt is also extremely important! Your Solar Panels need to face the sun, but the sun will be higher in the sky during the summer and lower during the winter. If your roof has a slope, that slope will allow the panel install design to be flat against your roof with little functional power loss. The perfect tilt angle is the same as the area’s latitude. In the Baltimore/DC area, that is 39°, but most roof angles range between 10° and 30°. This can cause production loss anywhere from 2% to 10%.
All of these things play a huge role when it comes to the effectiveness of your solar panel installation. When you work with Innovative Electric, Inc., you can expect a custom solar panel design that fits your unique needs. Your system will eventually pay for itself!
