The most common location for solar PV panel installation is on the roof. Almost all roofs can be installed to provide panels with the maximum amount of sunshine.
Solar panels could be positioned on the ground if mounting them on the roof is not feasible or desired.Simply make sure that the sun is not blocked by anything.
The procedure for installing solar panels on a roof is described below:
To ensure safety when installing while on the roof, you must first create scaffolding.
The second step is to install the solar panel mounting system. The entire mounting structure must be inclined at 18 to 36 degrees to receive the most sunlight. This will support the solar panels’ foundation.
After the mounts are set up, the solar panel must be mounted on the mounting framework. You must ensure that it remains stable and tighten all the bolts and nuts.
The installation of the electrical wire is the following stage of the installation process. Turn off the home’s energy supply while installing the wiring. MC4 connectors are typically utilized since they are appropriate for all types of solar panels.
The solar inverter must then be linked to the system after that. Usually situated close to the main panel, it may be either indoors or outside. If kept in a colder environment, inverters operate more effectively.
If the inverter is outside, it must be protected from the midday sun. If it is installed indoors, the garage or utility room is typically the best location because they have airflow and stay cool most of the year.
After that, the solar inverter has to be connected to the solar battery. Solar battery storage can keep you from worrying about the lack of usable energy during cloudy times and lower the solar battery storage system costs during installation.
The consumer unit should be linked to the inverter to generate electricity. To track the exact amount of electricity the solar panels generate, a generation meter must also be connected. You can assess your solar system’s performance using a computer or other gadget. For instance, you may determine the best time to use your washing machine or other utilities by looking at how much electricity you produce at various times.
In the last stage, the newly installed solar panel system must be tested and powered. The installation of the solar panels is then finished.
