What is the best location for a panel installation?

Panels have the highest efficiency when facing south in an area with little to no shadow cover. Roof top installations can be tricky for several story homes. If your home faces East/West or is more than two stories, you may consider a location other than your roof. For example, you may consider a south facing porch or garage roof top. You may also opt to install a ground mount.

Where are the solar installation components manufactured?

There are a variety of solar hardware companies out there! If you have a preference of where your equipment is manufactured, we can work with you to make sure we order from the companies that match your needs.

For example, if you prefer to use products manufactured in the United States, we can order your installation components from those companies.

Will an installation produce energy in overcast weather?

Energy production will decrease in heavier overcast weather but production will still be present as long as panels are free of obstruction such as snow. Our installers will work with you to pinpoint the highest efficiency output location. We want to make sure trees, buildings, or other influences won't cast shadows on your panels. Full direct sunlight will result in the best production.
