Solar panels are a great way to create electrical energy to power your home. It’s important for the array to be correctly located, sized and tied into your service.
Locating the panels on the south and west sides of your home will help maximize the power created. Also, it’s important to stay away from any obstruction that would cast a shadows on the panel, such as trees.
Using other technologies (Geothermal HVAC, spray foam, advanced framing and low energy bulbs), the size of the array needed for your home can be minimized and thus save money on materials and installation.
