Is my home a good candidate for solar panels?
If you own a single-family home with a roof that is in good condition and has access to sunlight, then your home is a good candidate for solar panels. While a fully exposed roof is ideal, many homes in cloudy or partially shaded areas can benefit from solar as well.
For those homes that are ready for a new roof or have difficulty finding a place for panels with exposure to sunlight, Solar Roof offers greater flexibility in the placement of solar cells.
Solar panels can equally be installed on the ground, but this option required metal frames to elevate the panels, in addition, they solar panels can be installed on a shed, car out etc.

What are the components of a solar panel system?
The Solar Panels are connected photovoltaic (PV) cells that capture sunlight hitting your roof and convert it into electricity.
The Charge controllers control and regulate the amount of volts and amps that the batter bank needs, they protect the battery from damage by overcharging and ensure that the remain on float charge when full.
The Inverter converts the direct current (DC) output of solar panels into alternating current (AC) in order to power your home. The inverter is generally located in a protected area such as a garage or near your main electrical panel.
The Battery Bank is a set of AGM deep cycle rechargeable batteries that stores the excess energy produced by your solar panels This stored energy can be used at any time, including after the sun sets or when there is a power outage.
The Energy meters are integrated to the system to monitor your energy production and usage and collect real-time information.
Surge Protection, Lightening Arrestors and Grounding are also installed to protect the system form thunder and lightening during adverse weather condition.
Solar panels, Charge Controller, Inverter and batteries all connect to your home’s electrical panel through a transfer switch.
