Home >> Types of Solar 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 more choices for installations that go far beyond the rooftop, and today’s advanced technology allows us to install solar panels virtually anywhere, including places which 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 solution for you.
Whether on-grid or off-grid, the installation options for solar panels are virtually limitless. That said, there are a few options which are more prevalent than others:
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.
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.
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.
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.

A solar (or photovoltaic) cell has two main silicon layers – a top, phosphorus-diffused layer that carries electrons and is negatively charged, and a thicker, boron-doped bottom layer that contains holes, or absences of electrons and is positively charged. The electrical imbalance between these two layers is essentially what makes solar power possible: Light radiation causes each layer’s positive and negative charge carriers to be released in the cells and in turn causes electrical current (direct current) to flow.
SolarTyme is a solar installation company, focused on reducing the customer's energy cost through our solar savings program. We are proud to offer complementary site evaluations for residential and commercial clients.
