How to Design a Solar Panel System
The design of a solar panel system is a lengthy process, uniting science, technology, and a healthy dose of creativity in a bid to construct the most efficient energy system for your property. At Future Proof Solar, we understand that undertaking a solar project can seem daunting. Removing the complexity, here we’ll take you through each step.
The process begins with a detailed consultation. Our professionals spend time understanding your energy requirements, the architectural characteristics of your property, and your budget. Asking questions such as ‘Are you looking to offset a part of your energy consumption or become fully energy independent?’ Once we have had the detailed consultation we can determine the scale of the system required.
Following this, our expert team will carry out a thorough site assessment. Important factors such as roof inclination, orientation, shading, and geographical location come into play. We study weather patterns using solar pathfinder analysis, and assess the structural stability of support surfaces – all with a view to maximising the efficiency of your solar panel systems design.
Pulling all these elements together, our team will create a bespoke blueprint for you. We will determine the best solar panel design that will give you the most favourable results whilst seamlessly integrating with your property. Throughout this process, we focus on achieving the optimal balance between performance and aesthetics.
We then share our designs and simulations with you, taking you through every detail and making alterations as needed. It’s your project, and your involvement is paramount. Once the designs are approved, we move forward with the installation process.
In the world of solar energy, there is no one-size-fits-all. Every solar panel system we design is bespoke, created with the sole aim of meeting your specific energy needs while paying heed to the constraints and opportunities presented by your property
