Solar Azimuths Explained
How to know if you have too much shade to go solar?
It is an unfortunate fact that solar energy is not for everyone. There is a lot more that goes into what makes a roof ideal for a solar panel system than most homeowners realize. Even if you believe you have enough sunlight hitting your roof to go solar, we may still determine it does not. Although your home may have sunlight that hits a section of your roof at particular hours of the day, it’s possible it may not produce enough electricity due to its azimuth. The wrong azimuth angle reduces the energy output of a solar panel array down to 35%.
Regardless of that, some companies will still sell solar panel systems to homeowners that will not produce enough sunlight to offset the cost of a system – thus making the system extremely expensive and inefficient. However, Solar Energy World will never do that. We prefer to install fewer solar systems that will actually save money for our customers, to installing solar systems to anyone who asks us. We want what we install to work at the optimum level for our customers.
Our integrity is one of the main reasons why we are the fastest growing, locally owned solar panel system design and installation company in Maryland.
