Herndon VA is home to many residences with excellent solar potential. Our client was looking for the most efficient solar panels with the best warranty to offset the maximum power usage. High-efficiency Solaria 350W modules with 25 yr manufacturer warranty made the perfect sense. These are quickly becoming our favorite panels to work with and more and more clients are discovering that solar panels can actually look great on the roof! We designed a two-array solar panel system utilizing the southern roof of the garage as well as the western main roof face. This system will provide 95% of the homeowners’ yearly power needs resulting in an estimated $1,200 in annual savings. We paired Solaria modules with SolarEdge P370 optimizers to mitigate multi-array and winter shading issues. To achieve clean and stream-lined look, all electrical conduits were routed through the attic space to a SolarEdge power Inverter located inside the garage. At the same time, we have upgraded the main electrical panel and installed an energy consumption meter to complement the solar production metering. Both Solar power production and home consumption can be monitored in real-time via a cloud-based monitoring platform directly on a smartphone or desktop computer.
All our solar installs are custom designed to fit the need, budget, and aesthetic goals of the homeowner – find out today how you can start producing clean, renewable electricity at your home.
