When it comes to solar panels installation, placement is extremely important. In order to maximize your solar panels production, you will want to have them installed in a place for maximum sunlight exposure. In most homes, the rooftop receives the maximum amount of sunlight exposure. This is why rooftop installations are so popular. With an abundant amount of sunshine, Southern California is the perfect location for solar panels installation, whether installed on a rooftop or on the ground.

Where to Install Solar Panels
You might be wondering if your roof is suitable for solar. The best way to find out if your roof is suitable for solar panel installation is to schedule an on-site evaluation with our solar expert. Our solar experts will be able to determine if your roof is suitable. Factors that may determine suitability include the direction and pitch angle of the roof. In general, a south-facing roof is ideal. However, most any direction facing roof will be compatible for solar panels.
The size and shape of your roof is another factor to consider. A small roof may still be able to accommodate solar panels. We have custom designed the layout of the panels for smaller roofs as well as roofs with obstructions, such as skylights. Too much shade can be an issue for solar panels. After all, solar panels require sunlight to convert to usable electricity. It may be a good idea to remove any trees that bring too much shade to your rooftop solar panels location. Flat or sloping roofs are compatible with solar panels as are most roofing materials such as composite, wood, cement tile, slate, tar, gravel or metal roofs. Our experienced installers know about all roof materials, making sure to take extra care with slate and clay tile roofs.
Benefits of Rooftop Solar Installation
• Space Optimization
• Aesthetically Pleasing
• Faster to Install
Ground-Mounted Solar Panels
While not as common as rooftop solar, ground-mounted solar may be the right option for you. You can have a much larger PV system if you have a lot of unused land on your property. A larger PV system means you can generate even more electricity, which translates to greater savings.
Benefits of Ground-Mounted Solar Installation
• Installation Size (can have a much larger PV system)
• Can Avoid Shady Areas
