Thus, the knowledgeable team of professionals hired by them will work to design a solar system to meet your energy usage, economic goals and house design. They work to design a system which meets your design and financial requirements in least possible cost.
While installing a PV system following points are taken care by Solar System Company in San Diego's personnel:
WHETHER CAN HANDLE WEIGHT
They ensure whether the area is capable of handling the desired system size. If the design used is roof mounted, it is verified whether the is capable of handling the additional weight, if not then another roof structure is augmented.
SEAL ROOF PENETRATIONS
It is taken care of to seal any of the roof penetrations with roofing industry approved sealing methods.
It is very well in minds of personnel to properly ground the roof to reduce the threat of surges and hazards.
It is properly ensured that the design meets local utility interconnection requirements.
There are basically two types of design available in Photovoltaic Systems:
GRID-INTERACTIVE ONLY (WITHOUT BATTERY BACKUP):
This system operates with the utility power grid and has no battery backup. This works only when utility is available. Since utility outages are rare, this system will normally provide the greatest amount of bill savings.
GRID-INTERACTIVE WITH BATTERY BACKUP:
This type of system consists of grid interaction as well as battery backup to provide energy to critical loads in the time of utility outages.
This Solar System Company in San Diego also provides various mounting options which play a major role in custom design. There are various ways to install a PV array. Most of these produce 5-10 watts per square foot of array area. These mounting options are:
ROOF MOUNT: This option is the most convenient and it is appropriate to put the PV array on the roof of the building.it should be put above and parallel to the roof surface with standoof several inches for cooling purposes. When the roof is flat, a separate structure with a tilt angle is provided on the roof. mounting is labour intensive. The personnel of Solar System Company in San Diego perform this task in a cost-effective manner. If the roof structure is not much capable of handling weight, it is augmented with another structure.
SHADE STRUCTURE: Another option for mounting is shade structure. A shade structure employs a PV array in the form of a shade. This type of structure can support small as well as large PV array systems. The overall cost of shade mounting is more than that of mounting, but the value of shade offsets the additional costs.
