small solar electric system evaluation

tracking solar modules
To help evaluate whether a small solar electric system will work for you, you should consider the following:
  • Your available solar resource – do you have clear and unobstructed access to sunlight for most or all of the day, throughout the year?

  • The system size – do you have a roof or area large enough to accommodate it?

  • The economics – is it worth the investment?

  • Local permits and covenants – are there any issues with installing a system?
