How To Mount a Solar Panel for Your Home 2020-04-21

Solar panels are quite possibly the future of home-energy production. Solar panels are somewhat costly to buy, but once you've purchased the panels and installed them, the money you will save in the long run will become exponentially greater as energy prices increase.

You're a handy person, capable with a tool belt, well-versed with the hammer, nail, screw driver and drill. This project might just be for you.

Learn to mount our own solar panel in 7 steps.

Step One

Pick out a spot for your solar panel on the rooftop facing south or north;

Step Two

Figure out your latitude tilt. If you live below twenty-five degrees latitude, your solar panels will need to be tilted towards the sun in the amount of latitude number. If you live at twenty-five degrees latitude, you will tilt your panels by twenty-five degrees. After twenty-five latitude, add five degrees for each additional five degrees of latitude up to forty degrees. ( 35 lat = 50 tilt and 30 lat = 40 tilt) At forty degrees latitude, add twenty degrees of tilt to your latitude number. (55 lat = 75 tilt) Memorize that and say it back five times fast.

Step Three

Solar Panel Mounts should be placed four feet apart and on top of rafters. You can use a stud finder or the blueprints of your home to find those rafters.Please purchase the right roof hooks accordingly to your roof sheet.Stainless steel roof hooks for tile roof top,L feet ,hanger bolt group and standing seam roof clamps for metal roof,the roof flashing group for shingle roof ect.

Step Four

Drill holes carefully into the rafters. You do not want them to split. These holes are where your steel bolts will fasten the solar-panel mounts to roof.The roof mounting systems is including solar rails,splice connector group,mid clamp group,end clamp group,roof hooks and grounding systems.

Step Five

Secure the mounts with steel bolts. Make sure to seal the area around the bolts in order to keep your thermal envelope air tight.

Step Six

Fasten the solar panels to the mounts. Usually the solar panels will come rebuilt with an easy-to-fasten panel to mount interface. Make sure that the solar panels are off the roof by at least a quarter of a foot. Airflow helps the panels operate at peak efficiency.

Step Seven

Your solar panel is mounted. You can now connect it to your electrical supply. Talk to an electrician about this. I am not qualified to tell you how to hook up electrical systems. I only know about nailing things to other things.
