Some Basic Solar Installation Requirements:

To help potential customers pre-qualify their rooftop’s viability for solar, here are a some installation guidelines that need to be met in order for their homes or businesses to be considered a good candidate for solar power installations:

    1. Rooftops should be in good, sturdy shape as well as:
      1. Be mostly free of shade in both summer & winter months.  Shade on aa solar panel can dramatically decrease energy harvest for that panel, or group of solar panels.
      2. Have roof plains facing between Due East (90 degrees) and West-Northwest (up to 300 degrees).  On a clock, that would be between 3 o’clock and 10 o’clock.  While roof facing north do produce some energy, it is far from ideal and the economics generally speak against installing solar panels at those orientations.
    2. Ideally, homeowners should:
      1. Have some tax liability.  This simply means you can take advantage of the 30% federal tax credit.  This is a SUBSTANTIAL incentive offered through the end of the 2016 tax filing season, when it is scheduled to expire.  It really is a good time to call Longhorn Solar.
      2. Have at least 3 months usage data available to help determine your energy needs
