Solar panels on a shingle roof – how to install them

Next I explain how to install solar panels on a tile roof, a step-by-step tutorial with images.

Solar panels on a tile roof: how to install them

In recent years  , solar panels have  become an increasingly common sight on the streets. This is a very logical evolution considering the many benefits they bring. A tile roof is undoubtedly the perfect roof for installing solar panels. Solar or photovoltaic (PV) panels are groups of electrically connected solar cells that convert sunlight into electricity (=  renewable energy  ). 

Having some solar panels on the roof of your house can contribute to cheap electricity generation,  leading to lower electricity bills  . Your dependence on energy providers is also reduced.

If you are considering installing solar panels on the roof, check what you need for it. In this blog, you will learn what solar panels look like on tile roofs and how to install them.

Solar panels on the roof.

Photovoltaic panels  should be placed in a well-lit part of the roof (preferably facing south, southwest) to allow efficient electricity generation. The   most efficient  roof slope  for solar panels is around 35 °. The installation of solar panels is carried out by specialized companies that design and calculate the correct number of solar panels. All you need to do is enter the rooftop photovoltaic plant.

It is advisable to install limiters (snow collectors) under the photovoltaic panels as shown in the image above. The snow that falls on the shingles will remain and gradually melt. But the snow that falls on the solar panels can start to slide due to their smooth surface. Dizzying snow creates the risk of a small but sudden avalanche that can surprise and injure someone. The installation of snow bumpers will protect the space under the photovoltaic panels

The screw must be strong and long enough for the profiles to be firmly screwed to the wooden roof frame. Thanks to this, they will not be damaged or bent by large amounts of snow, and the strong winds blowing under the photovoltaic panels will not be able to remove them.

The quick-install system was used for local energy production, which in this case is used to heat and heat the water, without having to pay suppliers. Thanks to the solar panels on the roof, this home has cheap electricity generation. This translates to lower bills and reduces your dependency on electricity prices  .
