Power Solutions in Long Island Vary in Performance Throughout the Year
When developing solar power solutions in Long Island, we look at things like the size of a home, the amount of roof space that is available for panels, the position and pitch of the roof, and any surrounding buildings or trees that will shade the panels throughout the day. Using satellite images, drones, and software, we can calculate, to a high degree of accuracy, how much solar a home will produce throughout the year.
Solar generation isn’t consistent. During the winter, the sun is lower in the sky and the days are shorter, so production is lower. In the summer, there’s plenty of sun and daylight hours, but you’ll likely be using more electricity during this time, so you might end up using all that you generate, or most of it.
Net metering gives more flexibility over the fluctuations in usage and the output of solar panels.
