Solar Energy Equipment

Residential Solar System Equipment

You might be wondering, which solar panels are the best? The honest answer is that it depends. When designing your solar system, our team of experts designs a system customized to meet your needs. They work to put the most efficient panels in optimal locations on your roof, so your solar system produces enough electricity to suit your lifestyle.

While there is much discussion and many differing opinions on the best panels, at the end of the day the best panels are the ones that provide the amount of power you need to lower your electric bills and provide the right amount of clean, renewable energy needed for your home. Each design and installation is a unique work of art.

**Fun Fact – In the United States, South-facing roofs are the most optimal for solar energy production.

Let’s take a look at all the parts that make up a OneRoof Energy solar power kit:

  • The Solar Panels

    solar_panels_on_roof-1The most visible aspect of solar power kits is the solar panels themselves. Panels can be made from crystalline silicon or, the smaller copper, indium, gallium, or selenide crystals. Regardless of the material, the panels are all designed to work in the same way by converting photons (sunlight) into a form of energy called direct current.

    A solar panel is made up of photovoltaic solar cells, and a group of panels is known as an array. When  you see multiple panels sunbathing on your neighbor’s roof, this is their “array” of panels. The size of  your solar panel array will depend on your energy usage, how much sunlight your roof receives and possibly your budget if you’re looking to purchase a system.

    Power Purchase Agreements enable homeowners add solar panels to your roof with no upfront costs. Our design team creates a customized system that will generate enough power to match your energy consumption patterns.

  • Racking

    solar_racking-1Without racking, your solar panels would just slide right off the roof and go crashing onto the lawn. The racking is what holds solar panels safe and secure on your roof. This piece of solar energy equipment may also be used to slightly tilt your panels to help them soak in as much sunlight as possible. OneRoof works with the best professional installers in your area so that your installation is secure and the panels operate at maximum efficiency.

     

  • The Inverter

    solar_interter-1Wouldn’t life be grand if your solar panels could send energy directly to your refrigerator, television, cell  phone charger, and all the other electronics you use? Well, life doesn’t work that smoothly. Your solar panels create a specific form of energy called direct current while your home only accepts alternating current energy. It’s like your solar panels and home are speaking two different languages. Here to save the day is an inverter which turns the direct current from your solar panels into the alternating current  that can be used to power your home or put into the grid for energy credits. The inverter is an unobtrusive square box that typically sits next to your meter.

  • Monitoring System

    solar_monitoring_system-1All residential solar kits designed and installed by OneRoof Energy includes a monitoring system that allows us to track how well your solar panels are performing and identify and troubleshoot problems. For instance, if we notice that your panels have stopped working, we can send a technician out to review the problem and fix it right away.

    Our monitoring system also gives you visibility into your system’s production. You can access your solar production reports online or on your smartphone, through the mORE Power app. Easy-to-read graphs and charts will show you how much power your panels are producing, so you can make smart energy decisions that will protect your wallet and the planet!
