At GreenLife Technologies, we are committed to helping homeowners in East Texas become more energy independent. There are many benefits of installing solar panels on your home, but there are also many different locations in which these solar panels can be installed. If your roof isn’t the most ideal spot, panels can also be installed on ground mounts, pole mounts, or a canopy-mounted system.

Our new blog series from GreenLife Technologies will talk about the benefits of installing solar panels in each of these locations, starting with the roof on your East Texas home. Keep reading to learn about how solar panel installation from GreenLife Technologies can help you save money and energy, and check back often to learn more about all of the different ways that you can choose to install your solar panels!

Why the Roof?

Solar panels are the most effective when they are placed as high as possible and facing south. They are best placed up high because you want as little shade coverage as possible. Solar panels take in energy from the sun, so it’s important that they aren’t blocked or covered! A south-facing roof gets the most sunlight throughout the day, which is why you want the panels to be on the south-facing side in order to get the most energy-efficiency. The tilt of the solar panel system is based on your East Texas home’s latitude. Your technician from GreenLife Technologies can keep you informed about exactly where and why your new solar panels are being installed where they are!

Reduce Energy Costs

Reduced energy costs are probably the most well-known benefits of solar panel installation, and with your panels installed on the roof, you can ensure that much more sunlight is being converted for energy use in your home. Living in the heat of East Texas can mean extra hours running your home’s air conditioning system, but with solar panels installed on the roof, you won’t have to worry about a larger energy bill during the summer. Keep your home cool by utilizing the power of the sun — not just the heat!

Out Of Sight

As opposed to ground-mounted or pole-mounted solar panels, solar panels installed on your roof by GreenLife Technologies stay out of your way. They won’t take up space in your yard or surrounding your driveway, rather, they will blend in with the rest of your house! If your home in East Texas is surrounded by trees, it may be worth considering cutting down the branches around your roof and making room for your new solar panels.

Save Your Yard

Not only will installing solar panels on the roof of your home save yard space, it will also save your property from extra digging, poles or mounts being placed, and overall damage to your landscape. When solar panels are installed correctly by the team at GreenLife Technologies, you don’t even have to worry about any damage being done to your roof — especially if your roof is already in good condition. If your roof is not in good condition and you don’t want to damage your home’s landscaping, you may want to consider having your roof repaired or replaced before installing your new solar panels.
