Action Solar offers many types of Solar Panel Installation
Read on to discover the myriad ways Action Solar can affix solar panels to your home or business in the San Diego area!
Asphalt Shingle Roof
The most common type of roof in Southern California is an asphalt shingle roof. This type of roof is the easiest type of roof to install solar panels on. Contact the team at Action Solar today to get your solar panels installed on your asphalt shingle roof.
Flat Tile or Spanish Tile Roof
Historically, solar installers have had difficulty installing solar panels on tile roofs. Our team is highly skilled in these installations, and will install your solar panels on your tile roof with no issues or problems.
Clay tile roofs can pose problems for many solar installers. This is one of the more difficult types of roof to install solar panels on. Not to worry, our installation team has lots of experience installing solar panels on clay roofs and will ensure that your installation is completed flawlessly.
Tilt Rack Systems for Flat Roofs
Solar panels need to face toward the south for maximum efficiency. A racking system holds the panels in place and allows for adjustments in angle and orientation. Flat roofs require tilted racking to ensure that the panels are facing toward the sun at the best angle. Usually, a 17-degree pitch is the most common angle to orient the panels. Action Solar is the only choice for your tilt rack system.
A tilt rack system requires roof penetrations. Flat roofs with a TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin) roof membrane do not fit this type of installation, so a ballasted solar panel racking system is used. The panels are held in place by weights in a ballasted system.
Ground-Mounted Solar Panels
A ground-mounted system can be a good alternative to a roof-mounted system. Ground-mounted panels require good solar exposure, and shouldn’t be placed in areas highly shaded by trees or other structures. Our team in San Diego is highly skilled in this type of installation as well as the others.
What about BIPV Roof Tiles?
Building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) roof tiles are photovoltaic materials that are used to replace conventional building materials in parts of the building envelope such as the roof, skylights, or facades. We do not advise using building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV). These installations have many problems, including maintenance issues, lower performance, and fire hazards.
