Q
Does a solar panel system take up much space?
A
How much space your solar panels take up on your roof depends on the size of your system.  A single panel can have a foot print of about 4’ long and 30” wide, so an array of 8 panels can be approx. 24’ long, depending on how they are oriented.  In almost all cases, rest assured your roof will accommodate the right size system for you, and our knowledgeable staff will walk you thru this process during the consultation phase. A good rule of thumb is that you need 100 square feet of roof space for every 1 kW of conventional solar panels.
