Solar Design Customized to your Home
July 22, 2011 § 1 Comment
Quite often we get calls at SES 21 USA from homeowners or installers who are struggling with some design issues: what to do about trees that shade or how to handle odd pitched roofs. A number of times we have seen people assume that they are not candidates for solar and give up quickly on the idea.
We recently had a resident call in with a bit of a tricky roof. As you can see in the photo his roof has many different pitches and the gables which cause shading in the late afternoon. A roof mount was definitely an option but the installer and customer decided on this ground mount system. The customer had the space for it, unobstructed by trees or other buildings. Plus he can really maximize his ability to produce solar power with this ground mount system. Did we mention the home is in very sunny South Texas!
Congrats to the homeowner and the installer for designing such an efficient and practical source of energy.
