TIPS FOR INSTALLING YOUR SOLAR PANEL
Evaluate the installation area: you must take into account the orography of the land and above all things, the climate. Needless to say, if the area where you live is exceptionally sunny, the panels will produce more energy due to the intense rays of the sun. On the other hand, if the weather is usually cloudy, with lots of rain, it will not be the best idea to place a solar panel.
Know how much energy you consume: you should know your energy consumption in your home correctly to understand the necessary amount of solar panels that your house will require to satisfy that need.
Right orientation: when installing the solar panels you should know perfectly the direction they will need to obtain sunlight as long as possible. We will have to orient them correctly and with an adequate inclination for the best performance. They must also be located in places where nothing can come, such as trees.
Continue with your energy provider: whether the solar panel is installed by a company dedicated to this or us, we should never unsubscribe our electricity provider. In most cases the solar panels will provide extra energy, it will not reach us to be able to live solely on them. These will be a short-term investment to save medium and long-term on your energy bill.
Maintenance: we remember that it is necessary to do good support of our panels. For maintenance, we are talking about a continuous review that everyone works correctly, especially after a hail where one can break. It could also be dirty because of the birds. The latter could lose 40% of panel performance.
