Answers to your common queries on commercial solar systems
While looking to save on operating costs and reduce your carbon footprint, solar panels are a perfect opportunity to boost your business. But before the installation, we are here to answer some common questions regarding this. Such as:

The energy solar panels produced is directly proportional to the amount of sunlight reaching, with heavy cloud cover or snow your system will not be able to generate any electricity. In such situations, you can go implement a battery solution to cover your energy needs. It can help you store the excess solar energy of sunny days and use it during power outages or days without sunlight.
Does the type of roof I have affect the installation?
Solar can be installed on a variety of different rooftop surfaces, angles, and orientations. Typically north facing roofs are preferred, however, east and west facing roofs can also be used to great effect (south facing is typically ignored). A designer will take into account your rooftop when designing your system. Importantly your roof must be strong and well-built to carry the weight of solar panels.
How much can I save after switching to solar?

Switching to solar means off the grid- Is it?
Actually, when you don’t utilize solar batteries, it’s not possible for you to completely eliminate the grid.
