In order to allow optimal energy production, the choice of the location of the solar panels must be carefully studied. Implementation space, location of the inverter, orientation, and inclination of the panels all have a direct impact on the profitability of the device.

Choose the ideal location for your solar panels!

It is possible to have your solar panels installed in various locations in the house, namely:

  • The Roof
  • A Facade
  • On The Ground
  • In Awning
  • Terrace

The roof, however, remains the most advantageous of these locations, allowing a discreet installation that does not reduce living space and limits glare. Be careful, however, that the panels do not obstruct another installation, such as a skylight or ventilation.

It is also advisable to avoid areas covered in shade at a time when sunshine is at its maximum (trees, neighboring buildings, chimneys, etc.). Electricity production will be affected by too much shade.

The inverter must also be the subject of an in-depth study of its future location.

This electronic device ensures the quality of the current and secures the installation. Its location must therefore be ventilated and accessible.

Note: The slight noise emitted by the inverter does not allow installation near the bedrooms of the house.

Tilt and orientation of your solar panels

You don’t have to live in the south to benefit from the installation of solar panels. It is indeed possible to make the system profitable even in the north. For this, it is necessary to choose the right orientation for its panels.

The idea here is to install its solar panels on the slope of a south-facing roof. The inclination should then be 30° with a clear view.

Indeed, the more the surface of the photovoltaic panels is perpendicular to the sun’s rays, the better it captures them. The production of electricity is therefore directly impacted by this inclination of the panels.
