Will Solar Panels Work on my Home?

It’s easy to say that there’s a solar panel system for every home. But unfortunately, that’s not quite the case. A large percentage of Pleasanton homes can invest in a residential solar panel installation without a problem, but there are a couple factors that could put it off.

A weak roof

Luckily, this is a problem that can be solved. If you have an older roof, the weight of solar panels could cause it to fall apart. This dangerous potential would put any home solar installation to an end. If you are set on installing residential solar panels, you can discuss re-roofing with a roofing professional.

Heavy shade

Solar panels are powered by the sun. This may seem like an obvious statement, but it’s easy to assume that the sun can reach us anywhere, anytime, when in fact, that’s not quite the case. If your property is heavily treed, your roof will be covered in shade much of the year, making your solar panels less effective. You could remove the trees, but that’s not quite fitting with your environmental efforts.

Nextgen Electric always provides clients with a full inspection prior to signing any papers or purchasing any materials. If your home is not suitable in some way for solar installation, we’ll inform you immediately.

Maintenance and Repair

Once your solar energy installation is complete, what will you be looking at in terms of maintenance and repair?

Solar panels come with a 20-year warranty. The power they produce will degrade by an average of 1% per year, taking you to 80% at that 20-year mark.

Solar panels can be maintained quite easily. They can build up dirt, dust, tree sap, and bird excrement that will need to be cleaned, but aside from that you won’t need to prepare for any other maintenance. It is always important to have Nextgen Electric over to do an inspection annually to make sure everything is operating at its best.

We keep repair pricing competitive, and can fix your panels quickly!
