How are the solar panels installed?
Solar panels can be installed in different ways. They can be placed on sloping roofs, flat roofs, on terraces and in gardens. When placing the panels, we pay attention to the following:
What is the best slope?
The angle of inclination influences the yield. An angle of about 35 degrees is optimal, but the yield loss with slightly steeper or less steeper placement is small (less than 10%).
In which direction should the panels be placed?
Solar panels are best oriented to the south, but if the panels are oriented to the (south) east or (south) west, this can certainly still be profitable with a slightly lower yield of 5 to 15%.
And what if there is shade on the solar panels?
Solar panels naturally generate the most when they are completely in the sun. When there are shadows from, for example, a chimney, we recommend optimizers. Optimizers will ensure that shaded panels cannot affect those that are in full sunlight.
Do I have enough space?
When the panels are placed on sloping roofs, they are placed close together. When the panels are installed on flat roofs, on terraces or in gardens, there is a space between the panels so that the panels can never be in each-others shade.
How are the solar panels installed on roofs?
We work with rails for sloping tile roofs. We drill a hole in the roof tile with a diamond drill and drill through the roof tile and the “bardo” (red stones that are usually used under the tiles in Spain). Here we insert a threaded pin and then the hole is sealed around with a special adhesive. Rails are mounted on the pin and the panels are placed on these rails.
What if I want them on a flat roof, terrace or in my garden?
When the panels are placed on a flat surface, we work with adjustable precast concrete foundations.
Do you inspect the house first?
We always come to view the situation before installation. In addition to the available space, we check your power connection and fuse box. To calculate the available space, we use google maps, physical measurements or drones.
