Not all solar panel companies are created equally. Some have the experience, certifications and high-quality materials to install solar panels properly, and others don’t, but bad installations can be costly and dangerous.
As your proven solar partner in Indiana, Green Alternatives wants to explain the differences between a bad and good installation. After all, our team often gets calls to fix the mistakes of other companies. Let’s start by talking about what a typical solar panel installation process looks like.
Bad Installations vs. Good Installations:
When installed poorly, you risk…
Poor energy production. Poorly installed panels may not produce as much energy, resulting in lower savings on energy bills.
Safety hazards such as electrical shock or fire could occur.
Roof damage such as leaks or structural damage is possible.
Warranty issues. When not done correctly, poor installation can void the warranty on solar panels and equipment.
Properly installed panels include…
Proper placement. Placed in a location that maximizes their exposure to sunlight.
Proper orientation. Angled to maximize their energy production.
Secure mounting to prevent damage to the roof and ensure their longevity.
Proper wiring done correctly and to code to prevent any safety hazards.
A good installation of solar panels is essential for the safe and efficient operation of the system. If you suspect that your solar panel system was installed incorrectly, it is important to address the issue as soon as possible to prevent any further damage and to ensure that you are getting the most out of your investment. Our team at Green Alternatives has the skill to deliver good installations, fix your bad installations and replace the ugly ones.
