Types of Residential Systems
The most common system is a roof-mount system. If your home has the proper orientation to the sun and there are no shading concerns surrounding the home, a roof mount system is the most cost effective solution. The recommended PV panel placement is on the southwest, south, or southeast facing roof. If, however, your rooftop is not conducive to solar, you could consider the second type of installation, a ground mount system.
Ground-mount systems are best suited for homes that have poor orientation or shading issues on the house. Homeowners with ample property around the home can choose a ground mount system. The installer can position the structure at the most ideal angle and tilt for maximum output. Once the location is selected and the structure built, the PV solar panels are attached and then connected to the inverter.
