Solar Panels Last 25 Years – But Will the System?
The Importance of Reliable Solar Racking and Mounting Systems
By 2016, there will be over 1 million homes with solar systems in the U.S. Solar arrays are extremely reliable but how many residential rooftops will be damaged from poor solar racking installation, components, and codes. As the industry scales up, even minor flaws in the installation and/or racking component selection process can result in thousands of damaged roofs and millions of dollars in aggregate repair costs to homeowners.
What causes racking problems on residential solar arrays, what are the cost implications, and what steps can solar installers, homeowners, and code officials take to prevent potential problems?
This White Paper addresses the causes and costs of problems from residential solar racking as well as what the solar industry is currently doing and can do to mitigate them, specifically:
- Installers will get a deeper appreciation of the importance of quality control
- Homeowners will have a greater understanding of what it means to have a solar array on their roof
- Code officials will be better equipped to create helpful and simple rules to promote high quality solar projects in their jurisdiction
