Is my home suitable for a solar panels? There are many variables that need to be evaluated in order to determine whether your home is suitable for a solar panel installation. This includes roof orientation, current electricity consumption, space, shadows falling on the space available, etc. The best location for a panel is a North-facing roof with no shade. Slight variations on this orientation will reduce your system’s orientation. What influences the amount of solar energy my home will receive? The strength of solar radiation will depend on the time of day, time of year, latitude of the generation point, etc. Factors such as water vapour in the atmosphere, cloud cover, dust, quality of solar modules and shade falling on the panels will affect the amount of radiation received.


Does roof orientation matter? It most definitely does! For instance, a solar panel system facing in the Southern direction will produce much less solar power than one that faces the North. East and West-facing directions can also prove beneficial but this depends on your installation scenario. Should I select thin film, monocrystalline or polycrystalline solar panels?

How long will my residential solar panels last? Solar panel technology has evolved a lot in the last decade. However even the older versions have a reputation for durability and reliability. Most modern solar panels have a shelf life of at least 25 years.


Do I have to implement special care instructions to maintain my panels? For panels to operate effectively, you must ensure they’re clear of dust and debris. Most panels can be easily cleaned with a water hose. This depends on the height of your roof. This cleaning must be done at least twice a year, even more frequently if you live in a dust-prone area.
