All-time low solar panel prices

posted on: April 2nd, 2012
All-time low solar panel prices are now making it easier than ever for you to harness the power of the Sun. However, the ability to successfully utilise solar power depends largely on the amount of sunlight which your home is able to capture. Therefore, there are several things which you will need to consider before making any investment:

The angle of your roof
The angle at which your roof is pitched can have a significant effect on the amount of sunlight it will be able to receive. Naturally, a roof which can receive greater amounts of sunlight will be able to generate more in the way of stored energy.

The direction your home faces
Another factor which may affect the amount of sunlight that can reach your rooftop is the direction your home faces. In general, roofs that face south receive the greatest amounts of sunlight. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that roofs which face north, east and west are a complete loss.

The amount of obstructive shade
Persistent shadows generated by chimneys, trees and nearby buildings can have a negative impact on the amount of energy solar panels are able to generate. However, as long as your roof is not covered entirely in shade, solar panel installers will normally be able to engineer a solution that will make the most of the situation.
