Energy efficient home solar panels

Solar panels are modular pieces, usually rectangular in shape – approximately 3’ by 5’ long. They vary in size, electrical output, efficiency, and even color – most solar panels have either a black or silver metallic frame, and the cells will usually appear a dark blue or black in the light.
Panels can be mounted to a home or building’s roof structure, or installed on a ground-mount racking structure. The panels contain silicon cells that when exposed to sunlight, create a flow of direct current electricity or DC.

How Are Solar Panels Installed on a Roof?

Solar panels are installed straight on the roof of your home. The standard system uses rails attached to the top to help support the rows of panels. These are then tilted to help work better during seasons where there isn’t much sunlight—using blots to secure panels and flashing for a watertight seal. Solar panels can be installed on various roof types, including asphalt shingles, metal, tile, and flat roofs. Compatibility depends on the structure’s condition and material. A professional assessment ensures proper installation, maximizing solar efficiency and longevity. Different mounting systems are employed based on roof design, ensuring a secure fit.
