For most customers, residential or commercial, the roof is the best location for solar panel installation. Typically, it already has the structural specifications that the solar panels require. All that is needed is mounting hardware and appropriate flashings. If the roof is not applicable or desired, various other mounting options are available, including shade awnings or ground-mount options (i.e., standard ground-mount, ground pole, or trackers). As a solar installation company in Peoria with extensive expertise and experience, we can advise you on the best location for your solar panel installation.

Type of Mount

There are three different types of mounts for affixing your solar panels to your home. Similar to the panel types, the least expensive option is the least efficient and the more expensive options are more effective.

Fixed

These are completely stationary and cannot be adjusted to capture more or less sunlight depending on weather and season. They are the most modestly priced type of mount. Installing this mount is optimal in regions where continuous sunlight can be expected, as adjustments wouldn’t be as necessary in order to maximize on energy production. The type of solar mounts you choose for your roof is the most important part of the design and is what we call the backbone of your solar system. Choosing the proper solar system is one thing but how it is going to be placed on your home for many years should be carefully considered. In other words, you have options when it comes to your solar installation; Peoria-based Cool Blew Electric & Solar can advise you on which one is best for you.

Adjustable

These can be tilted depending on the intensity of the sun or the season. They are more expensive than the fixed mounts, but will have more energy efficiency. Adjusting the panels to soak up more sun in varying seasons will equate to greater energy production. These adjustments can also be useful when the weather turns, as you can lay them flat to avoid damage from wind.
