There’s some science behind this question, including roof architecture, angle and tilt, geographical location, shading factors, energy goals, and the average amount of sunlight you receive each day.

But you don’t have to worry about it. We’ll do all the work and simply give you the answers to help you decide whether or not you want to go solar. These are some of the things to be considered:

  • Tilt -- the angle of your roof
  • Azimuth -- the direction your roof is facing
  • How much energy your household uses -- your current electric utility bill contains this information
  • How much sunlight you get -- if you’re not in a super-sunny area, you may require more panels to maximize solar energy production

Should you move forward, you will receive a customized system design, approved by Sunnova engineers, that illustrates the number and position of solar panels you need to maximize solar energy.
