Solar panels can do wonders for your Austin home or business. The benefits of installing solar panels on your Austin property quickly outweigh the installation costs. For starters, solar energy is both sustainable and renewable. Solar panels serve as a quiet source of renewable energy, requiring very little maintenance. On top of all that, your energy bill will practically disappear. If it was up to us, every Austin home and business would be outfitted with solar panels. Unfortunately, that's not always how it works. Our team of professionals at Wells Solar can figure out whether or not a solar system would be a good investment for your Austin property. Our expert professionals will be direct and transparent in their assessment of your property and only set you up for solar success, not failure or frustration.
There are a number of factors that go into deciding whether a solar system would benefit your Austin property. For instance, if your property has a roof that is capable of holding solar panels and faces south, your property will receive the optimal amount of solar energy. If you have a roof in Austin that faces any variation of south, you’re likely still in a good position to proceed with the installation of a solar system, but you may not see as ideal results as you would with a roof that faces due south. Even if your roof faces east, west or north, this doesn’t mean you can’t reap the incredible benefits and savings of solar energy. If this is the case, you might be better to simply install a ground unit. You can count on our expert team in Austin to be upfront with you the solar potential of your home or property and what your options may be.
As you can imagine, shade and solar energy don't mix. Solar panels work best when the sun's rays hit every part of the panel. If your Austin roof is heavily shaded by a tree, building or anything else for a significant part of the year, a solar system might not be a great idea for your home or business. In other cases it may be possible that a minor adjustment, such as a tree trimming, would be enough for your Austin solar roof setup to generate solar power. You can always call the experts at Wells Solar with your questions for more details.
Along with the direction and the amount of shade that your roof receives, there are a number of other factors to be taken into consideration before proceeding with your solar roof installation. Some of these factors include:
