Roof Type

A PV system can be installed on any type of roof. Some are easier to work with than others.

If your roof is older and needs to be replaced soon, it is best to replace it when the PV system is installed. This allows you to avoid removing and reinstalling your PV system when the roof is replaced.

Roof Pitch

The ideal tilt of a PV panel equals the latitude of your geographic location. However, the roof pitch of your roof is rarely equal to your geographic latitude. Again, it is best to follow the recommendations of a professional.
