Solar panels are made by a number of manufacturers, and come in all shapes and sizes. At Sunbug, we maintain working relationships with a wide range of solar producers, which enables us to assemble systems that are customized to the needs and price points of our customers.
Whether ground or roof mounted, a series of panels are linked together to create a system, or “array”, the size of which is measured in kilowatts (kW). Our expert designers orient this array to receive the greatest possible amount of direct sunlight during the peak hours of the day, typically from 9 am to 3 pm. While the optimal installation is mounted on an unshaded southern-facing roof, other orientations can be nearly as productive. A site evaluation is important to determine the effectiveness of any potential solar array.
