As you might imagine, your roof has a pretty big impact on your solar project. Your roof type, it’s age, and the shape and angle can impact both the cost and the design of your system.
Your roof type is important. Some roofs are perfect for solar, some will come with an extra cost for the install, and others need to be completely re-roofed in order to go solar.
The age won’t necessarily prevent you from going solar, but if you are planning to re-roof, you should do that at the same time as going solar so that you can claim the 30% tax credit on your roof work as well. The shape and the angle will impact your system design, which can impact which type of inverter you might need or the cost of the install itself.
We’ll get into all of this so you can know how solar would work on your roof and the best options for you when installing solar panels.
