We want your San Diego home’s solar installation to serve you well for years to come.
Available Space Needed For San Diego Home Solar Installation
Many homeowners in San Diego utilize their rooftops to host their solar panel installations, which means the available space is dictated by the square footage of your roof. The panels attach to a racking system that attaches to your roof so they can be set up in rows and tilted in order to achieve the most efficient angle. Vents, chimneys, dormers and more can compete for space and even shade the panels, so many San Diego residents are using residential solar panel designs that incorporate flat ground.
Calculating Annual Electricity Consumption In San Diego
Most homeowners in San Diego found that solar systems under 400 square feet can provide a 100 percent offset of their energy bills. If you can provide 12 months of energy bills, our specialists can calculate how many panels you will need. Our residential solar panel design calculations will include the profile of your roof, your geographic location, directions your roof faces, and more. Construction of the roof and existing electrics are other factors we consider when designing a home solar installation for your San Diego residence.
How Shading Affects Solar Panels For Homes In San Diego
In San Diego, solar panels for homes lose efficiency if they are in the shade, even for just part of the day. If string inverters are used on your home, they are only as efficient at the weakest performing panel. The residential solar panel design for homes with shade will include microinverters or power optimizers, which will increase the efficiency of each individual panel. We will include all these factors for your San Diego property’s solar panel installation.
