How to place solar panels on the roof of your house?

THEInstallation of photovoltaic solar panels allows us to promote both residential and industrial self -consumption . In the same way, it brings us closer to an energy independence that is becoming more and more attractive. The fact of taking advantage of solar energy allows homes and companies to benefit from significant energy savings, contributing to a more sustainable world.

How to place solar panels on the roof of your house?

The decision to opt for solar energy can be based on economic reasons , such as savings in consumption or investment , as well as on ethical issues or commitment to clean energy and the environment . Whatever the motivation, you have the support of a team of experienced professionals who will help you make your decision a success.

If you want to know what the process of installing solar panels in a home or business is like, we invite you to continue reading.

project study

When a request for installation is received and before proceeding with the design of the installation, the technicians carry out a study of the project in which the possibilities of the property are evaluated , as well as the energy needs.

How many solar panels do I need?

Once the estimated consumption has been analyzed and after the installation options have been assessed, a draft of the installation is made . A professional design will make it possible to make the most of solar radiation , while at the same time facilitating optimum performance of the panels and contributing to good general maintenance of the system.

The study carried out by the technicians includes the revision of the roof that the installation will receive . The coating, the orientation, the shadows and the surface are fundamental when it comes to tackling a project to install solar energy in homes and businesses.

project design

In the design of a solar panel installation, the inclination and south orientation of the solar panels is essential . The arrangement of the plates directly affects the amount of energy that the system will produce, therefore, a good design will allow greater use .

When closing a design, the best conditions must be guaranteed not only for the installation , but also for the conservation and durability not only of the panels but of the entire roof. It is necessary to guarantee the impermeability and maintenance of the roof in perfect conditions.

Legalization of the installation

Before proceeding with the installation of the plates, it is necessary to review the documentation and comply with the procedures and municipal ordinances . Only in this way can we enjoy the corresponding state or regional aid or subsidies . It should be noted that in order for the work to be legalized , it must be registered and validated in the corresponding council, and for this an authorized installer such as POWEN is required . In addition, we will help you in the processing and application of the pertinent aid , as well as in the communication with the energy distribution company for the compensation of surpluses .

Installation of the plates

At this point, the experience of solar panel installers is vital , since optimal operation and the best possible performance must be guaranteed . It must be a professional team that performs the installation according to the established design. The objectives pursued in the installation of the panels are the greatest possible use of solar radiation, but also safety in the elements complementary to the panels , such as batteries or inverters . A guarantee company will ensure compliance with legal regulations and will monitor access to the installation only to authorized persons.

Step 1. Structure and supports

The way of fixing the supports to the roof is determined by the type and design of the roof. A flat roof is not the same as a pitched or gabled roof. The professionals’ project establishes the inclination and orientation of the plates, as well as the number of panels to be mounted. The correct fixing of the supports and their assembly will be fundamental to guarantee the safety and the longest useful life of the structure .

Step 2. Fixing and connecting the solar panels

The solar panels must not only be connected to the structure, but must also be connected to each other . Lastly, the panels are connected to the inverter, which is the component that converts the direct current produced by the panels into conventional 110v current.

Step 3. Wiring and connection to mains or batteries

The design of the electrical wiring will be done in an efficient way and will allow energy to be transported from the plates to the batteries or the network. All the components of a photovoltaic solar installation must be correctly connected , for which a perfectly distributed network is required. When assembling the battery system it is very important to have defined the storage capacity and the installed photovoltaic field . There are different possibilities when connecting batteries together, so you have to be especially careful to achieve the best results.

Step 4. Cleaning and maintenance of the installation

In order to enjoy the advantages of the new installation, it must be properly maintained and cleaned . Care that ensures the best performance of photovoltaic panels. A safe facility is an efficient facility that meets the requirements established by the administration in terms of licenses and urban regulations. That is why we insist again on the need to carry it out with professionals. This is the only way we will enjoy the peace of mind of a quality installation with the guarantee of a quick return on investment. Check with POWEN all the possibilities offered by our self-consumption solutions.
