Solar Modules For New Construction:

Presently, people started adopting solar rapidly due to the increasing demands for electricity and climate change problems. The decreasing prices of solar and the government policies have also encouraged people to adopt solar. If we pay attention to the increasing adoption rate every day on the day of solar, then in the future, people will be running more and more electrical appliances with the power created by them. Seeing this, now buildings are being made solar-friendly in India so that consumers can use solar energy in a better way and at the same time it can be easily installed in buildings.

In this blog, we will learn about some advantageous tips that must be considered before installing solar modules for new construction. So that, users can select the best module as per their need.

Check The Roof Strength for Installation Work:

As we all know that solar is a long-term investment, if a consumer plans to install a solar system then this is for 20 to 25 years. Besides, the solar system is weighty also, so the roof’s condition should be good and strong enough to install solar modules. Moreover, the depth of the roof should also be at least 6-7 inches, so that the fastener can get a stronger base and fit without damaging it.

Suitability & Direction For Installation:

To know about the place or home that is suitable for solar, there are some key points given below:

  1. There should be less big trees or tall buildings etc. around the place, because the higher the things, the more shade will cover the space, which can cause hindrance for the panels to harness the solar energy.
  2. The energy performance of solar panels depends on the panels’ installation direction. Sunlight is more in the southern direction, so keep panels south-facing that is producing more energy from solar panels, because the panels will get maximum sunlight from here. Besides, panels can also be placed in the east and west directions. Since India is located in the Northern Hemisphere, the panels are not to be placed in the north direction.

Fix The Location:

Location is another important factor for the solar system. As the solar system is installed on the roof, it is necessary to ensure that there is a suitable space for the height and width of the stairs at the place of the user. So that the solar panels can be transported to the roof without any loss. If there is less space around the stairs then there will be difficulty in moving the panels.

Type Of Wiring Connection:

Wiring is the most important part of solar system installation. Before installing the module, planning for a wiring connection is helping to set the system in a better way to get good output. The consumer will need to install a PVC pipe of at least 2 inches in diameter, which can be properly installed from the roof to the ground, and in which both solar and earthing wire can be inserted. In this procedure, the earthing wire needs a minimum 1-meter distance from the wall.

As nowadays consumption is increasing day by day, so houses need 1 to 5 KW solar modules. In this scenario, wiring needs a good depth pipe. But the pipes used in new construction don’t have enough depth. So during the installation work make sure, the depth of pipes minimum of 2 inches.

Calculate the Home Load & Decide the Type of solution:

home load calculation

Before selecting the solar system, you need to be ensured about the home load. For knowing the correct way to calculate the home load, you can refer to the given link. After the calculation, you can select the perfect solution as per your requirement. Also, the correct selection requires a clear division of the home load. In the current constructed building, the load division is not clear at all, as AC is connected in one phase and the rest of the home load in the second phase. This can cause irregularities in the energy division. Therefore always keep home load division equal.

Besides, the user will also decide which type of solar solution he has to use, off-grid or on-grid. If the purpose of installing the solar system of the user is to reduce the electricity bill, then he can use an on-grid solution, but if the main purpose of the user is power backup, then he should choose an off-grid solution.

So, these are some valuable tips for solar solutions’ new user or newly constructed building. If you liked this information or you want to give any kind of suggestion, then you can comment below in the comment box. Stay connected for important information with Ornate Solar.
