Did you know that the technology behind solar panels was actually developed and used by NASA in the 1950's? Today's solar panels have gone through rigorous testing against all types of weather and are typically guaranteed to work for 25 years. Not every house is suitable for solar panels however. The roof has to get enough sunlight to generate enough power to your home. Standard panels will take up around 300-500 square feet of space and it is always recommended that the roof is less than 25 years old. The larger solar panel you can put on your roof, the more roof for solar cells which absorb the energy from the sun and power your home. This helpful visual from solarpower.guide shows the size difference of residential panels compared to commercial sized panels. If you have questions about solar panels for your roof or need to know if they would be a good fit for your business, this is a good place to start!
