California Solar Roofing

Residential Solar

Solar Electricity/Photovoltaic Solar electric panels are mounted on the roof or on a ground rack. The photons of the sun generate electricity in the panels and the inverter changes the electricity into useable AC electricity for your home or business. Systems are designed to meet your needs and in most cases eliminating your annual electric bill completely. No maintenance required. Qualifies For a Federal Tax Credit

Solar Swimming Pool Heating– Solar pool heating panels are mounted to the roof or a ground rack. In the spring and summer months roof shingles can get to 150 degrees fahrenheit. As cold pool water runs through the solar panels, it gets heated up and warm water returns back to the pool. It extends your season and is fully automatic.

Solar Water Heaters/Solar Thermal Never run out of hot water again. Pair an 80 or 120 gallon solar pre heat tank with your existing water heater. The solar panels heat the solar tank which reduces the load on your conventional water heater thus saving you  energy and money. Up to 35% of your monthly energy bill is from heating water.

Solar Attic Fans-Venting hot air out of your attic keeps energy bills down and prolongs the life of your roof. Solar attic fans pull hot air from the attic making your HVAC work less. With a built in thermal switch the fan will only run when the attic space is above 90℉. Qualifies For a Federal Tax Credit

E.V. Charging Stations Electric Vehicle Charging stations provide fast charging and are customized to your needs. Commercial or residential charging stations of all types can be installed in as little as one day. From design to installation, permitting and inspection, it’s all fully included.

Commercial & Industrial Solar

Commercial and industrial property owners can benefit from installing solar energy on business or factory roofs, or as ground-mounted systems on a commercial or industrial campus. Many corporations have massive manufacturing facilities with expansive flat roof space, and installing a solar array in that space can be a source of clean, inexpensive energy.

The system size for the majority of commercial and industrial installations is usually substantially larger than a typical residential solar system. A commercial solar system can be up to several megawatts (MW) in size, depending on the amount of electricity the facility needs.

Commercial solar is considered “distributed generation,” meaning that the energy produced by the system is used at or near the point of generation. Distributed generation projects such as rooftop or ground-mounted solar are usually connected to the local electric grid. This allows for commercial property owners to take advantage of net metering, a policy enabling distributed generation customers to send unused electricity back to the grid for a monetary credit.

The solar panels used in commercial and industrial-scale installations are larger than residential panels. The typical commercial solar installation uses 96-cell or greater solar panels, meaning each panel is made of 96 or more individual solar photovoltaic cells. For comparison, a typical residential solar panel will have 60 or 72 cells.

Commercial and industrial solar installations are usually installed on factory roof space, on large solar carports for parking lots, or as a ground-mounted array. More so than smaller rooftop systems, commercial and industrial solar systems include intricate racking systems to elevate and tilt the panels. Some commercial panel arrays even use racking with tracking capabilities, allowing the direction panels face to change and increase the amount of direct sunlight the panels receive.
