Sizing Your Solar Electric System
Accurately sizing the components of your solar power system is one of the most important steps in installing solar panels to your Bay City home and business, regardless of whether it is for a stand-alone system or if it’s connected to the grid.
The first step in any solar panel installation job is to call your utility company and request the total electricity usage in kilowatt-hours for the last 12 months. Once we have this figure, proceeding with sizing the panels you’ll need to go solar will be a breeze.
Once we have figured out how much electricity you will need to generate with your new solar panels, the size of your system will also be influenced by:
- Your property’s solar resource, meaning how much available sunlight there is.
- The system’s orientation and tilt so that the panels are positioned in a way to receive the maximum amount of sunlight.
- The system’s efficiency at converting sunlight to electricity.
- Other electricity sources, like a wind turbine or a fossil fuel generator, that you may still be using.
Once we have gathered all this information, we can proceed with installing solar panels on your Bay City property.
When we are conducting this audit of your home or business’s power usage, we will also recommend other ways you can cut down on your consumption to make sure that you are maximizing your energy efficiency going forward.
Solar Panel Mounting Systems
There are several different mounting systems available to outfit your Bay City home or business with solar panels. Based on our findings from the sizing, we will select the best fit for your property. If you don’t have much space on your roof or if it doesn’t receive an adequate amount of sunlight, we will set up pole mounts that can be either fixed, manually adjusted or with automatic tracking so that you are getting as much sunlight as possible whether it’s summer or winter.
By in large, we will try to mount the solar panels to your roof to save space on your property, but if it’s not ideal, it will be ruled out in our first inspection.
