What is a Solar Site Survey used for?
A Solar Site Survey is used for determining the best location to install a Solar Photovoltaic or Solar Hot Water Heating System. This survey is usually created by an electrical or solar professional. It summarizes key design data , findings and recommendations for a successful solar installation.
Physical location – Orientation
The physical location is important to maximize the total solar exposure to the solar collectors. South facing is the optimum orientation for solar collectors.
Shading – Solar PathFinder Site Analysis
It estimates the total annual sunlight exposure for each location where the Solar modules will be installed on.
Proposed PV location on the roof -
This diagram outlines the physical placement of solar modules on the roof. This is usually require as part of the solar installation permit process.
