THE SOLAR DESIGN PROCESS

The solar system design process usually takes the following into account:

  • Your needs and requirements (e.g. location, aesthetics, financials, goals)

  • Geographic location

    (generally, closer to the equator, the better)

  • Orientation

    (generally, south facing is better in the northern hemisphere.

  • Roof Area

    (the more usable roof area, at least sufficient for required number of panels, facing south, the better; less area will be required if higher efficiency panels are used)

  • Shading

    (clear, unobstructed access to the sun is preferred)

  • Roof Type

    (solar panels can be installed on almost every roof type using appropriate mounts)

  • Electric Main Panel

    sizing and breaker slot(s) availability.
  • Selecting solar panel physical size, power output, and quantity

    Based on production desired, environmental, and cost.
  • Mounting and railing

  • Clearance between roof and panels

    (to allow proper air circulation)
  • Wiring gauge and length

  • Roof loading

  • Roof obstructions such as chimneys or vents

  • Building codes

  • Layout and routing

    of panels, inverters, junction boxes, cut-off switches, wiring, grounding poles, and breakers
