Optimizing Solar Panel Placement: A Strategic Approach for Maximum Energy Yield

Customized Solar Solutions

Every home presents its own opportunities and challenges for solar panel installation. A skilled SunPower® dealer understands the intricacies involved. They assess your home for potential obstacles such as trees, chimneys, or taller buildings that could obstruct sunlight. Even if your home doesn’t have an ideal southern orientation, a knowledgeable dealer can design a system that maximizes solar power production.

Net Metering Considerations*

For homes with access to net metering, the timing of solar energy production matters. South-facing panels capture ample energy around midday when consumption is often at its lowest, allowing excess power to be sent back to the grid. However, changes in regulations, such as California’s “time of use” (TOU) rates, can impact the optimal panel direction. SunPower dealers stay informed about these regulations to ensure your panels are placed strategically.

Efficiency and Advanced Technology

Solar panel efficiency plays a significant role in determining the number of panels needed and the overall energy yield. SunPower’s Maxeon® solar cell technology is designed to capture a broad range of sunlight, producing 55% more energy over 25 years compared to conventional panels within the same space. Fewer, more efficient panels mean a more streamlined installation process and higher energy savings for you.

Simplified Design Process

Navigating the complexities of solar panel placement can be overwhelming, but SunPower’s Design Studio simplifies the process. This software allows homeowners to actively participate in the design, understanding how many panels will fit and where they should be placed. Additionally, SunPower’s SunVault™ storage system enables homeowners to save excess power, enhancing energy resilience.

Investing in solar power not only benefits your pocketbook but also contributes to a greener environment. Trust an experienced SunPower dealer to guide your family in this exciting new direction. Make an eco-conscious decision that saves you money and reduces your carbon footprint.
