15 panels west facing 2 panels south facing 5 panels east facing Layout was to "hide" the panels from the front view of the house. (Wife's requirement!)
No concerns about how much we run the AC. This has helped with allergies since the AC system has a HEPA filter.
Panels are washed twice a year when we have our windows cleaned. Cost per panel is $5.
Efficiency or Sustainability Improvements:
My son-in-law decided to add solar to their house during its re-build
Do the math. This is a "risk-free" investment that returns about 10% a year depending on your energy use.
Experience with Installer:
We give top notch ratings to NexGen Construction. For the installation, but also for the support and education they provided during the decision process.
