How Does a Custom Solar Design Process Work?
If you are considering adding solar power to your home, here are some things to keep in mind. These factors include:
- Location of your home
- Your home’s physical design
- Your energy consumption
Solar energy systems are designed to fit the needs of both the homeowner and the person who lives there. Your energy needs may be greater than those of your neighbors. A consultant might be needed to help you design your home’s systems.
Budget considerations are another important factor. It is important to determine the cost of a system with a certain level of capability to be designed and installed. This is a great opportunity to take advantage of the federal tax credit, which runs from 26% through 2022.
Design Elements for a Custom Solar System
These are the steps to expect from a solar system installer after you have contacted them:
A certified professional will conduct due diligence and determine if a solar-powered system would be a good fit for you. They will also decide how best to install it.
The Design of the System
These factors can have an impact on the number of panels that you need to power your energy consumption. The number of batteries you will need to store power and where they should be placed will depend on whether you have access to other power sources.
A Battery Hub Is Like a Generator That Powers Your House
The solar charge controllers transfer the power from the panels into the battery bank. The inverter converts direct current (DC), to alternate current (AC). The battery size will depend on the size of your home and the amount of electricity you use. This will also be affected by how much light you use and whether or not you have a hot tub/pool. For you to produce sufficient power, your custom design will be able to tell you the type of each component.
