Solar can work on almost any property given these few requirements are met. First, you need to own the home or have permission from the property owner to install solar. Next, your roof needs to be solid, structurally sound, and no more than 5 to 10 years old. Asphalt shingle roofing typically needs to be replaced every 15 to 25 years. In some cases, it’s best to install a new roof before installing solar. You’ll want your roof to face the right direction in order to receive an optimal amount of sunlight. Finally, it’s important to have little to no shading on your roof.
Residential solar is right for you and your home if you’re ready to start saving money and protect the environment, and if your home meets the recommended requirements.
