Rooftops and Beyond: The Ever-Expanding Options for Solar Panel Installation
When it comes to solar panel installations, rooftops have long been the most popular option, and in many people’s minds, the only one. However, there are many other choices for installations that go far beyond the rooftop, and today’s advanced technology allows us to install solar panels virtually anywhere, including places that have never known the benefits of electricity. From remote villages to urban dwellings, the benefits of solar are expanding throughout the world, and SolarTyme can provide these innovative products and solutions for you.
Whether on-grid or off-grid, the installation options for solar panels are virtually limitless. That said, there are a few options that are more prevalent than others. See below to learn more about types of solar installation.
Ground-Mounted Solar Panels
When roofs don’t have adequate space or simply can’t handle the solar structure, ground-mounted panels are the way to go. In this configuration, panels are mounted onto racks which are secured into ground.
Solar Roof Top Mounts
The “granddaddy” of them all, rooftop installations are still the reigning champion of panel installs, as they’re perfect for residential homes as well as commercial applications and take up no extra square footage on a property.
Utility-Scale Solar Installation
Available in many sizes, utility-scale installations are designed with maximum output in mind, and they produce electricity energy to power multiple buildings.
The canopy installation epitomizes the phrase “double duty.” These installations are similar to ground-mounted ones, but in this case, the panels are lifted higher up, allowing them to serve as both power generators and shade providers in the form of carports, walkway covers, and more.
Which Option is Right For You?
These methods above are just a few of the installation options available today, and as technology progresses, the list of choices is sure to grow. As they do, SolarTyme looks forward to continuing to lead the pack in innovative solar solutions for both homes and businesses in the mid-Atlantic.
