When installing on a high seamed metal roof no roof penetrating connections are necessary for Sunworks Solar to provide you with the wind ratings your solar array will need. Even on Roscoe Blvd. in Ponte Vedra, so close to the beach, this solar electric array has been clipped into the seams of the detached garage roof.
The solar energy collected by the photovoltaic solar panels on this south-facing roof feed electricity into the home first before passing it on to Beaches Energy Electric Company through a net meter. Because of online energy monitoring Sunworks Solar is able to record just how much energy this system is producing. Since it was installed on July 30, 2013, this 6 kilowatt Solar Array has produced 4.99 Megawatt Hours. An equivalent electric bill savings of $634.73 in 7.5 months.
According to the Enphase Micro-Inverter website that records this solar array’s energy production 4.99 MWHs is enough energy to power 165 homes for one day. The green energy this house has produced has so far offset the release of 3.45 tons of carbon dioxide. This is the equivalent of planting 88 trees.
