7. Do I have an acceptable location for solar?
In the majority of cases the answer is yes. We need a relatively south-facing area that gets sun from approximately 9am to 3pm. The systems work reasonably well even when facing west or east if that’s your only option (decreased output is typically 15%). We can mount the systems on the majority of roof types including shingled or metal roofs. Systems can also be ground-mounted. Please see our project portfolio to see examples of how other customers integrated solar into their homes or businesses.
Finally, we perform a free on-site evaluation of your location (within 75 miles of our office) prior to an installation to ensure optimal production from your solar system and to be certain that the system design and location meets your expectations.
