What is the best angle for flat roof solar panels?


Going solar is a smart energy decision for homes and businesses with flat roofs, and solar panels can not only help the home or business owner save money but also optimize the use of roof space. But there are a few things you need to keep in mind when it comes to the process of installing a flat roof solar mounting system.

What is the best angle for flat roof solar panels?

To avoid drilling holes and causing water seepage in your roof, it is wise to invest in a ballasted or concrete cement based solar mounting system to support your panels. Roofs come in all shapes and sizes, but generally speaking, panels need to be installed at a 20-30 degree angle to absorb as much sunlight as possible.

And, as an added bonus, panels at this angle are more likely to stay clean, as rainfall removes debris and dirt that could reduce the efficiency of the panels. Installers often use professional equipment to install panels at the perfect angle, so be sure to contact a qualified professional for installation.
