Is my roof a good candidate for solar panels?

Every situation is different and the only way to know for sure if your Kansas City area home or commercial building is a good candidate for solar panel installation is to have one of our experienced & highly trained Solar Technicians.

Our Solar Techs can inspect your roof, measure angle, orientation and shading at no cost to you so you will know if solar is an option.  Then, before any final decision is made, our Solar Techs will inspect the structural integrity of your roof, the electrical and plumbing and provide you with a full proposal with all timelines and costs and benefit analysis.  We also do a full energy audit to identify all areas where you can save money.

Factors in determining if your roof is a good solar candidate:

Roof Layout – Best results are roofs with 300-400 square feet of clear area that face South, Southwest or Southeast.  Flat roofs are also ideal.  We may be able to make an East or West facing roof work, it just depends on the shading, angle and roof space.

Shading – It is important that the sides of the roof where we install the solar panels have little or no shading between 9 and 3 every day.  In some instances, it may make financial sense to remove a tree or foliage to make room or even install a ground-mounted system if the roof has too much shading.
