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 Lapeer 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 Lapeer 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.
What Can Solar Installation Do for My Lapeer Business?
If you’re looking into installing solar panels at your Lapeer business, you’ve probably already made yourself familiar with the wide range of amazing benefits that solar power can bring to any business owner.
But just in case you haven’t, we’ll go over some of the top ones. Sure, you’re right to claim that maybe we’re a biased source of information: our company name is Langenburg Construction, after all. But far from the clunky and low-efficiency contraptions of yesteryear, solar energy is poised to become a major way in how the world goes round. Solar panel cost is a small fraction of what it was even ten years ago, and so investing in a renewable energy future is something that more and more small-to-medium-sized businesses are choosing. So, without further ado, here are some benefits of installing solar panels at your Lapeer business:
Solar Panels Reduce Your Energy Consumption
Lower energy consumption means lower power bills, which means more profit for you and your stakeholders. It’s a simple concept that many don’t try because of outmoded ideas about solar panel efficiency. But today, panels can reduce a given business’s power consumption by a significant amount—usually anywhere from 10 to 40%! Over time, that makes a huge difference to both your business’s success and your bottom line!
Sell Excess Solar Energy Into the Power Grid
Many towns and states are creating opt-in programs where excess power you generate from solar panels can be sold back to the local power authority for handsome rates. It’s a great way to encourage building solar panels and one that tons of Lapeer businesses have used to take a little pressure off their earnings. However, as you know, political programs like this in Michigan move swifter than a cloud over a solar panel, so be sure to check with your local regulatory authority to be 100% sure.
Build a Greener Future for the Earth (and Impress Clients)
In today’s day and age, it’s more important than ever before to be conscious of your impact on the environment. And it’s no secret that fossil fuels like oil and coal that we’ve relied on for centuries are really doing a number on the planet’s health.
Let your potential customers know you’re part of the solution, not part of the problem. While we can’t promise anything, we can say you’ll appear worldly, wise, and interested in more than just your own bottom line. That’s a boon when looking to attract Millennial customers to your business. Saving the planet at the same time? Doesn’t sound too bad to us.
Solar Panel Mounting Systems
There are several different mounting systems available to outfit your Lapeer 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.
