Before you commit to having a solar power system for your home, there are things you need to check first. In the same way you would choose carefully before buying a new computer or TV, you need to devote time checking that your rooftop can accommodate solar panels. Here are some of the questions you need to answer before you even start calling solar companies in your area for a quote.
Will the solar power system fit your rooftop?
Perhaps you’re already eyeing a specific system for your home. Before you go ahead and buy it, you need to make sure it will fit on your rooftop! For example, you can start by measuring your roof’s surface area. This is important information a supplier requires so they can determine the best option that can fit.
Of course, a more spacious roof can accommodate more solar panels. However, there are different mounting solutions which can allow more panels even on smaller rooftops. While some of the fancier mounting options might cost a bit more, you should still consider everything.
Can your rooftop handle the load?
Generally, this is one of the most important aspects you need to check. A solar power system naturally adds to the weight of your rooftop. Subsequently, you need to make sure that the roof can handle the installation structurally.
Typically, solar panel modules will weigh around 2-4 pounds per square foot. Considering the amount and size of your panels, this can easily add a significant additional load to the roof structure.
Even if you can’t work this out on your own, it is not a problem. A good solar power company has engineers that will make this assessment for you. Furthermore, it’s always part of the initial process, so don’t hesitate to arrange an assessment.
Will you be using batteries?
Investing in solar power batteries is a great way to maximize surplus production and have access to instant backup power. However, depending on your system and your budget, the cost might not be worth it. In addition, the weight and placement of the batteries is something you will also have to consider.
For the most part though, a top system will usually generate more than your daily energy requirements. Nevertheless, none of this surplus electricity is lost. In fact, you can redirect extra power generation to the grid using the net metering scheme. Consequently, you can shave a nice chunk off your conventional power bill. The solar power you send to the grid remains as a credit against future usage when you may need it.
