Does my roof get enough sunlight?
Solar panels need unobstructed access to the sun’s rays for most or all of the day. Shading on the system can significantly reduce energy output. Climate is not really a concern, because solar systems are relatively unaffected by severe weather. In fact, some PV modules actually work better in colder weather. Most PV modules are angled to catch the sun’s rays, so any snow that collects on them usually melts quickly. There is enough sunlight to make solar energy systems useful and effective nearly everywhere in California.

It can be costly to remove a solar panel system and reinstall it so if you think or know you need some roof work done, it would be beneficial to do it before the solar panels are installed. Our team of professionals can help you with roofing options as well.
