If you're considering adding solar panels to your home, you're probably wondering if they're reliable. After all, you don't want to invest in a system that isn't going to work when you need it the most. In this post, we'll take a look at solar energy reliability and what factors can affect it. We'll also discuss some tips for ensuring that your solar system is as reliable as possible. So, whether you're just starting to think about solar or are already in the midst of installation, read on for some helpful information!
The sun is constant. It rises and sets pretty routinely and you don't have to pay for it to come up every morning. It’s more predictable and reliable than power plants, which often experience outages several thousand times every year and are a limited resource.
There are a couple things to look at to make sure your panels are producing maximum energy.
1. Panel Layout
The layout of your panels is extremely important. Some sides of your roof get more sun throughout the day and therefor your panels will produce more energy. When we design your layout, we can see how much energy you will produce by placing your panels on the sides of your roof that get the most sunlight. This ensures your panels are producing all of the electricity you will need and more.
If you have a lot of trees on your property, it's possible they are shading your roof. When we design your solar panel layout we will be able to see if there are any trees that will cause shading. Don't worry if you do have some shading, we have tree trimming services available so this won't be an issue with the energy production of your panels.
