In an era when new energy is widely used, has your home installed a solar system? Or do you know how to install a solar system for your home more safely and effectively? This article will give you detailed information on how to install a solar power system for your home.
Step 1: Find the sweet spot
Find the best location for the array to receive the most sunlight and the best quality of sunlight. For most areas, viewing is best directly from the south. The sun rises in the east and sets in the west, so that the south-facing array is always in the sun. The right location not only maximizes the use of sunlight, but also minimizes the distance between the array and the house. The longer the distance the energy has to travel, the more energy is lost.
Step 2: Run the Conduit
Pipes connect the solar panels to the house or backup battery system.
Step 3: Build the platform
There are do-it-yourself options for building a solar platform from scratch. But, honestly, it’s easier and will save you a ton of time if you use a tool kit. Frame kits may also be less expensive than purchasing parts for a durable solar array platform.
Step 4: Install the Panel
Simply put, solar panels are attached to a roof-mounted frame. The solar panels are mounted on the frame and clamped with bolts, brackets or other devices. If you use a kit, the clamps will match the frame to secure the solar panels to the roof.
Step 5: Connect Systems and Components
If you are unfamiliar with electrical wiring standards, you should leave system wiring to a solar professional or electrician. Your goal is to connect the solar panels into strings or groups and then connect them as a unit to the conduit wiring.
Step 6: Grounding system, including panel and mounting system.
Step 7: Form the circuit by connecting the electrical components.
Step 8: Test the system
Understanding how to install a solar power system for your home and choosing the right solar products are important to the operation of your system, including solar panels, cells or battery banks, solar charge controllers, inverters, racking wires, and more.
