Solar panel roof mounts are often an excellent choice for many commercial solar panel installations, and are the standard for most residential projects. Depending on the size of the roof, the available space on it, and your energy consumption, you may be able to generate up to 100% of the energy you need in the space you already have.
At Hilton Head Solar, we understand every roof is different. That’s why we customize a design that is perfect for you.
All roof mounted solar panel systems help reduce the number one degradation inhibitor to a rooftop, UV rays. When the UV rays are absorbed by the solar panels rather than the roof, the solar panels help the facility stay cooler and offer power production at the same time.
The solar PV system array is mounted generally within a few inches of the surface of the roof. It is also installed parallel to the angle of the roof. To maximize energy production, they are typically installed on the side of the roof that gets the most unobstructed sun. Most residential solar roof mount systems use rails attached to support rows of solar panels. The rails are secured to the roof by a bolt or screw with flashing installed over the hole to ensure a watertight seal.
Flat roofs sometimes offer more flexibility in terms of solar panel roof mount design. The solar panels be tilted to capture the most of the sun’s rays but typically, more solar panels can be mounted on the roof at a lower angle, as there is less spacing between rows. With flat roofs, we can orient the solar panels to face south and mount them at the correct orientation regardless of which direction your facility faces. That way, your installed solar panel roof mount system can be optimized for maximum electricity production.
