With everyone being concerned about the environment, turning to renewable sources of energy has become a popular choice for many. Those seeking to bring solar energy to Vancouver houses can directly install photovoltaic panels to help power homes. Homes with access to solar energy can save on power bills and have an always-ready back-up source of electricity.
Before you begin counting how much you can save, however, you have to make sure that your home can handle solar panels.
Is Your Home Ready?
The biggest factor in checking whether a house is ready for solar panels is space. The ideal situation is to have a large, flat south-facing roof. This maximizes the amount of light that the solar panels can be exposed to. It would even be better if the roof was completely flat instead of sloped.
