Designing a solar ready home is a good step to minimize construction and installation costs especially if you are exploring the possibility of future upgrades. Integrating your home design to a future solar build will maximize the solar system’s potential and make the installation easier and hassle free.
Allot good roof space, tilt and orientation
To make the most of your solar, providing optimal placement and good roof space for your solar panels will result in higher efficiency of the system. It is best to orient the solar panels towards what is referred to as the ‘solar window’, for the system to receive the maximum amount of solar energy at any time. In Metro Manila, the ideal set up is to face the panels towards the “True South”, with tilt of between 10 to 20 degrees.
Be careful of the possibility of shading
Make sure that your roof is free from any obstructions that may later on cause shading on the panels that will be installed (such as trees, antennas, or surrounding buildings). Carefully plan where to put the vents, skylight, or heater, and place them where they cannot affect the solar panels.
Does that mean I have to sacrifice on design?
Not really. In fact, the whole concept of a solar-ready home is to design the establishment to be more well-built and solar equipped when a homeowner finally decides to install one. The homeowner can approach their architects and contractors to better incorporate your home design with solar. This can be a huge breather especially since constructing a home and installing solar can be an expensive combination. Preparing your home to be solar ready will make your future solar installation easier – like plug and play.
