Solar Panels for NYC & Long Island Homes
In addition to your average electricity use, our in-house design team will carefully ensure that your roof meets certain criteria to provide you with the best-performing solar panel system. Our in-house design team will consider your home’s average electricity use and balance aesthetics with efficiency to optimize your home solar system.
What makes a home a great candidate for solar?
The best performing solar panel systems are installed on roofs pitched between 20° and 40°. Our solar systems typically cover 600-800 square feet, and weigh as little as a layer of shingles.
Obstructions + Shade
Ideal roofs are unobstructed by anything that can cause shade, such as trees and buildings, and are clear of obstructions, like chimneys or plumbing vent stacks, on south, east, and west-facing surfaces.
Asphalt shingles, rolled asphalt, and metal seam roofs work best for solar systems, though there is no single roof material required. We’ll consider your roof’s material and age to ensure that it is capable of sustaining a solar system.
