Mostly, solar electricity systems are built on the roof. Now, there are some factors that we need to consider before mounting your panel on your roof to maximize efficiency.
- We have to consider the orientation and angle of your roof with respect to the sun.
- The sun’s path is changing throughout the year. That said, we have to strategically position your panels so it will be efficient all-year-round.
- We have to make sure that your panels get unobstructed sunlight throughout the day. Some neighboring trees or establishment might be shading your panels, for instance.
The planning and evaluation are the most crucial parts of the process since these dictate the success or failure of the project. That said, we are proud to say that the huge success of our solar services in Sacramento is due to the effective planning and evaluation of our team.
Another important thing to include during the site evaluation is the type of roofing and the pitch of the roof. Additionally, different types of roofing materials will impose different installation methods. Fortunately, our team of experts know exactly how to deal with every possible roofing situation.

These proposals will be your options in choosing the best setting depending on your preference, energy goals, and budget. Remember, efficiency is the key.

You reduce your carbon footprint – Solar produces no greenhouse gases while fossil fuels produce them when burned. This helps keep global warming under control.
Your electric bill goes down - You won't pay more than 10% of your total monthly electrical usage if you use only renewable resources. If you're using less than 1kW, you may not even see this reduction.
You avoid paying taxes - The government collects income taxes based on your annual earnings. With solar, you never owe these taxes because you generate your own clean energy.
You support local businesses - When you buy products made locally, you give back to your community. By supporting small businesses, you create jobs and strengthen communities.
You earn extra cash - Many homeowners sell excess solar energy directly into their homes' utilities. In addition, most states offer net metering programs that allow customers to receive credit for selling surplus energy back to the grid.
