Evaluating Roof-Top Home Solar For Your Home or Business

Is it Physically Possible?

The first thing you need to do before getting pricing, product research, or calling a professional is to determine whether solar is physically possible for your home. There are a number of methods to installing solar on a home but if your house fails the physical requirements, you will not be a candidate for solar. In New York and Long Island, and world-wide, the majority of solar panels are installed on roofs which are either pitched or flat. The primary considerations to be discussed with regard to the physical possibility of going solar for your home is the Directional Orientation of you the roof exposure and its associated architectural characteristiscs.

Solar Panels need to be installed facing South, South East, South West, East, or West. The sun rises in the east and sets in the west so why cant we put panels on the northern exposure of our roof? The reason is because the sun travels along the southern lattitude from east to west. which is why perfect south (180 degrees) is ideal. If your house is facing 180 South, you will recieve the most exposure as the sun travels from East to West. If your system faces perfect West(270 Degreees) or perfect East (90 Degrees), you are still very much a candidate for a successful solar energy system. Your production may be 2-5% less than a house facing perfect South.

How Do I Determine the Orientation of My Home

The simplest way to determine the orientation of your house is to use either a traditional compass or an iPhone/Android compass App. Go to Each side of your home to find the various exposures of the house with a note pad writing down each side of your house and which direction it faces.

An additional way to find the orientation is through google search of your home in either google earth or google search.If you dont have Google Earth installed, please find the link to install it HERE–> Follow the prompts to install the software and then run it. Once on the main screen, Please see a basic step by step guide to evaluating whether your roof or ground area has a viable orientation for solar panels HERE–>Find Your Home on Google Earth

If you find the approach laid out above for finding your home on google earth difficult, there is a more detailed approach HERE–>

If you prefer to use google search to find your home, simply go to Then click on the square-shaped satellite icon which will display satellite imagery rather than traditional road maps. Once in satellite mode, type in your home address and type in your full address and click search or press enter. Use the Zoom (+) icons on the screen to locate your house.

How Do I Determine if the Architecture of My Home is Good For Solar?

If you do have one of the mentioned orientations, (S, SW, SE, E, W), now you need to identify if the roof is ideal for solar with respect to usable space. Since solar panels are rectangular, then the roof must have enough available space to fit these rectangular shapes. Usually dormers and other angular architecture such as corners or domes get in the way. By evaluating your roof or ground mount this way, you will determine the difference between total square footage vs. usable square footage.

Please see an example of a house that has a lot of space on the roof but due to the shapes and architectural obstructions, is not a good physical match for going solar. In not only is there a tree looming over the southern side of the home, but there is also a tremendous amount of angular architecture as well as rounded dome like structures (witch’s hats) getting in the way of placing enough rectangular shaped solar panels on the roof. Even if the customer was willing to trim or cut down the tree, the roof does not allow for a viable opportunity for the customer to go solar.





GOOD ROOF FOR SOLAR 300x177 Solar Power Buyers Guide to Roof Top Home Solar Systems In New York City and The 5 Boroughs, and Long Island  PART 1




Here, you can see what a good candidate for solar looks like on a pitched roof. As indicated by the arrow on the top right corner, the orientation is showing South West which is good for solar. In addition, there are no major architectural difficulties preventing solar panels from being uniformally placed on the roof. Finally, there is a minimal amount of roof obstructions(tree shading, roof vents, fans, and chimney’s). If you have some of these obstructions, it does not necessarily exclude you from going solar. However, as indicated above in the house which was a bad candidate for solar, the obstructions need to be excessive whereby solar is not feasible at all. You can also call ABest Energy Power to assist you in making the determination by calling us at our Toll Free Number at (855) 411-4SUN.


Great Flat Roof For Solar 300x205 Solar Power Buyers Guide to Roof Top Home Solar Systems In New York City and The 5 Boroughs, and Long Island  PART 1

Great Flat Roofs For Solar

These are examples of flat roofs which would all be good candidates for solar since they are facing south with minimal obstructions. There is a big tree in the back of these homes. However, it is on the Northern side and will not create shading issues.







If you have made it to this point and have concuded that you are a candidate for a roof top solar energy system, then you are an official candidate for solar. The next step in the proces will be:

  • The financial aspects of going solar
  • Choosing the Right Equipment
  • Choosing the Right Contractor

We hope the information presented in the first part of this series was helpful. If you would like to speak to an ABest Energy Power representative at this point, please call us at (855) 411-4SUN.

How to choose and buy solar energy-saving lamps

Article by Guoyongqiang

In the design of solar lighting, involving light, solar systems, battery charge and discharge control and many other factors, any one part of the problem will cause product defects. Solar lamps that total consists of five parts: solar panels, charge controller, battery, load and lamp housing.

A solar cell

Solar cells main function is to convert light energy into electrical energy, a phenomenon called the photovoltaic effect. Among the more common solar cell and a more practical silicon, polycrystalline silicon and amorphous silicon solar cells, three. In too sunny, sunshine good eastern and western regions, the use of polycrystalline silicon solar cells as well. For polycrystalline silicon solar cell production process is relatively simple, single-crystal low price, the conversion efficiency has been improving. More in the rainy days, the sun is relatively not very abundant in the southern region, the use of single crystal silicon solar cells as well, due to electrical performance parameters of single crystal silicon solar cells is relatively stable. The amorphous silicon solar cells in the case of weak indoor light is better, because the amorphous silicon solar cells on solar illumination conditions require relatively low.

First of all, any one of the solar lighting products we must first understand the solar cell, solar cell has five electrical performance parameters, namely: short-circuit current, peak current, open circuit voltage, peak voltage, peak power.

The average user is concerned, how do we know it’s five parameters values? Teach you a simple way to let us know the relative parameters, we can 12 noon sunlight in the case of tests with a multimeter the five parameters (of course there will be such that the measured value of the error).

For single solar cell, it is a PN junction, except when the sunlight above, it can generate electricity, it also has all the characteristics of PN junction. Standard lighting conditions, it rated output voltage of 0.48V. In the use of solar lighting solar components are connected by a multi-chip solar composition.

Users can look at to understand the price of solar cells, solar lighting performance and stability. Here I will charge controller, load, battery, etc. as described.

2 Charge Controller

No matter the size of the solar light, a good performance of the charge and discharge control circuit is essential. In order to extend battery life, it must charge and discharge conditions, restrictions, to prevent battery overcharge and deep discharge. In addition, because the input of solar energy photovoltaic power generation system is very unstable, photovoltaic power generation system in the control than the normal battery charging battery charging control is more complicated. For solar lighting design, the success and failure often depends on charge and discharge control circuit success and failure.

Performance is not a good charge and discharge control circuit, it is impossible to have a good performance of the solar lamps. Charge and discharge controller must have the following characteristics, namely: anti-anti-charge control, anti-overcharge control, anti-discharge control, temperature compensation.

3 batteries

As the input of solar energy photovoltaic power generation system is very unstable, so the general need to configure the system to work the battery, solar lamp is no exception, you must configure the battery to work. Generally have lead-acid batteries, Ni-Cd batteries, Ni-H batteries, which directly affects the choice of capacity and system reliability of the system price. The choice of battery capacity generally follow the following principles: First, to meet the night lighting in the premise, the components of solar energy during the day as store down, but also able to store consecutive days of rain the night lighting to meet energy needs. Battery capacity is too small not to meet the needs of lighting at night. Build too large, the battery is always in the state power loss, impact on battery life, and wasteful.


Solar lighting products are energy saving as the advantages, of course load to energy saving, long life. We generally use direct current energy-saving LED lights and low pressure sodium lamp and so on.

At present, most lawn use LED street light bulbs as a light source, LED long life, can reach more than 100000h, low voltage, suitable for use in solar lawn lights on.

Garden lights generally use LED road lamps and DC energy-saving lamps. DC voltage of the DC energy saving lamp, no inverter, convenient and safe.

Low pressure sodium lamps commonly used. Low pressure sodium lighting efficiency (up to 200LM / W), but low pressure sodium lamp expensive.

Lamp housing

We collected information on many foreign solar light, in beauty and energy between the two, most of them choose energy-efficient. Exterior lighting requirements not very high, relative utility on the line. At present, there are many lamps look very pretty, use stainless steel shell. However, performance in the end what? This brings us food for thought!

A good solar lighting products, the key is system design, what is a reasonable system design? Let us first look at several important factors affecting the system, which is the latitude, the annual total solar array surface radiation, the maximum number of days without sunshine, day and average power consumption of sunshine hours.

Let us imagine: if less than the amount of solar charging, daily discharge would happen then? Rainy days, the system for several years but also lighting it? These questions have to be taken seriously our designers.

Finally, I give you about a simple solar lighting system to determine the performance of the method: First, solar power must be four times higher than the load power over the system to work properly. Second, the load on the battery capacity must be more than 4 times higher power consumption (western region), southern region for more than six times higher as well.

Renewable Energy Boilers and the Benefits of Biomass

Article by Richard Clique

With the UK Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) offering enticing advantages to those willing to invest in environmentally-friendly forms of heating, this could be the perfect time to become part of the renewable energy club. The technology is still developing, but early adopters will benefit from payment incentives as a reward for helping to iron out any potential problems with green energy generators. As the Government decides how to best implement this ‘off-the-grid’ approach to energy production, your household could benefit from money-saving, environmentally-ethical sources of renewable energy, such as solar panels and biomass boilers.

With such incentives in place, the dream of money-saving energy sources and a flourishing low carbon economy doesn’t seem like such a huge undertaking. By 2050, the Government aims to reduce the UK’s emissions by 80%, but according to the RHI guidelines published in 2011, only one per cent of heat in homes currently comes from renewable energy sources. This only refers to the domestic sector, as it goes without saying that a fair proportion of carbon emissions are produced by the commercial and industrial sectors. Still, most of us benefit from household heating derived from fossil fuels – a necessity that is nonetheless putting a significant strain on our non-renewable energy sources.

Most of the published literature on renewable energy focuses on solar energy. Solar panels are relatively easy to install and provide a cheap and effective means of household heating. Generally, these are used to supplement the gas that is already used to heat water for the home, and thus don’t provide a truly renewable energy source. Biomass boilers, on the other hand, can provide heating for the entire house. Many types of biomass boiler can be installed in the living space, acting as an attractive focal point for the modern living room – much like a contemporary reimagining of the traditional wood-burning fire or stove.

Most biomass boilers burn wood pellets, which are created by compressing shredded wood under high pressure. This creates densely-packed pellets that have an energy density that is typically three to four times that of wood chips, owing to their low moisture content and highly compressed structure. Good quality pellets will provide hours of uninterrupted hot water and burn more cleanly than standard wood.

That is probably the main problem with biomass boilers, however. Whilst other low-carbon renewable energy sources such as solar energy produce little to no emissions, biomass boilers will emit a certain amount of particle pollution into the atmosphere. Compared to traditional energy sources though, biomass accounts for only a tiny proportion of all particulate emissions in the UK. Obviously this will increase as the adoption of biomass-burning renewable energy sources grows, but the use of air filters can reduce the amount of harmful particles released by a significant proportion.

The real beauty of biomass lies in its use as a potential supplement to other renewable energy sources in the home. Combined with the use of solar panels, biomass boilers can act as an eminently reliable source of energy that can be used as necessary. And the best part of the renewable energy equation? Excess energy can be sold back to local energy companies – nothing goes to waste.

Alternative Energy/Solar Energy – Fighting Rising Electricity Costs with Solar Power

Article by Sam Greyhawk

In our search for new forms of sustainable power many scientists have focused on using the energy of our sun. Photovoltaic cells or solar cells convert one form of energy, sunlight, into another form of energy, electricity. While the creative idea of getting “free” energy from the sun is attractive to most, many consumers have concerns about the initial expense of installing a solar power system. That’s why the key to purchasing the right solar system for you lies in the “Solar Power Payback Time.”

Solar Power Payback Times for Solar for Photovoltaic Technologies

When considering the transition to, or even adding in supplement, solar power, many consumers have concerns over the initial expense. It’s easy to understand that over the long haul solar power will pay for itself, but how do you calculate exactly how long it will take? To calculate your solar power payback time you will need to evaluate several factors that can influence your payback:

Local ClimateState or Federal Incentives/RebatesState Tax CreditsLocal Utility PricingNet-Metering Availability

Solar Power and Rising Electricity Costs

Solar power is a unique resource because it is protected from inflation - as electricity costs inevitably continues to rise, any electricity you generate using your solar system will counter electricity charges at the current market price. The more electricity rates continue to rise, the more you will save.

If you generate excess electricity, under the right conditions such as net-metering, it is even possible for you to generate a monthly profit from your solar system.

Finding State and Federal Incentives or Rebates

Depending upon the state you live in you may qualify for incentives and rebates that cover as much as 60% of the total cost of installing a new solar system. How do you find what incentives and rebates you qualify for? Using the free web-based tool titled Database of State Incentives for Renewable & Efficiency (DSIRE), run by the North Carolina Solar Center, it’s easy to find the incentives and rebates you qualify for. You can find the DSIRE here:

What is Net-Metering?

Net-metering is a system that allow excess user generated solar energy to be sold back to your local electric company. Depending upon how much electricity you generate this may provide you either a monthly discount or a net monthly profit.

What is my Solar Power Payback Time?

As a result of the number of variables involved in calculating a particular solar payback time I recommend using a tool such as the OnGrid Solar Financial Analysis Tool. They offer a free demo version of their tool that can help you calculate your personal solar power payback time. The OnGrid Solar Financial Analysis Tool is available here:

While calculating your solar power payback gives you a financial picture of the total cost of ownership for your new solar system it doesn’t take in to consideration the environmental cost. To gauge the environmental cost of a solar system you need to evaluate its Energy Payback Time.

Energy Payback Times for Solar for Photovoltaic Technologies

According to the US DOE’s Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) group the “Energy payback time (EPBT) is the length of deployment required for a photovoltaic system to generate an amount of energy equal to the total energy that went into its production.”

The energy payback time for solar power is based on three determining factors:

The efficiency of the photovoltaic systemThe amount of sunlight the photovoltaic system recievesThe manufacturing technology used to create the photovoltaic cells

Using some average sunlight values, “about 1700 kWh/m2/ yr average for southern Europe and about 1800 kWh/m2/ yr average for the United States,” the EERE provides pre-calculated energy paypack times for a number of solar cell technologies:

Single-crystal Silicon – 2.7 yearsNon-ribbon Multicrystalline Silicon – 2.2 yearsRibbon Multicrystalline Silicon – 1.7 yearsCadmium Telluride – 1.0 years

When one considers rising energy costs and the relatively low energy payback times for a variety of popular solar cells it’s easy to see solar power as a reasonable alternative to rising energy costs. While it’s true solar cells do require large quantities of energy to manufacture, and they also utilize precious limited resources such as silicon, copper and cadmium – in many cases they offer reasonable energy payback times. Even considering the overall environmental cost, solar power may be exactly what the world needs to wean itself off its fossil fuel dependency. Help fight global warming by moving away from fossil fuel generated electricity and moving towards solar power.

Solar Energy Information – The Real Concern You’ll Want To Know

Article by Shane Green

With all the financial state the way it is at this time, you can’t ever have sufficient details to make the best choice. Individuals who give smart, educated actions generally avoid issues.

The advantages of solar power are becoming progressively more known amongst typical families since that day after the machines which could turn that into various other forms of energy was devised.

Will it continue? Or perhaps is it a gimmick? To respond to all of these queries, we must learn about some simple solar power information. Even after that, responding to an easy concern similar to how does solar energy work will somehow be based upon the reason as well as kind of application utilized to gather solar power.

Solar Power Energy Facts aids in responding to questions on the subject of solar power. If you want to start going green or perhaps wondering of what are the key benefits of doing this, it is vital that you need to gather all the solar energy facts that you can grasp and just imagine of the all options that are offered for you.

When you’re enthusiastic to learn about solar power information you make a mindful choice to understand a little more about how you may help our planet. It is not a secret that Earth is beginning to pay for the cost of the judgments during the past by the early or previous generations.

Presently, much more than in the past, we’ve got to start to consider for our own selves and also work out how we would like Earth to appear in in the future. Needless to say, if referring to solar power information, we need to first learn what we’re dealing with here. Solar energy is the energy that is in the form of light that’s obtained from the sun’s rays, saved and then used as electricity for domestic setting.

Solar energy has been available for a long time already, and mankind was able to tapped into its potential. According to studies, an exceptionally little part of the heat coming from the sun can be converted into energy.

They say its because of the fact that most people do not possess the systems necessary to totally gather energy, whilst some, specifically in civilized world, tend not to consider the idea to gather the sun’s energy, after all they have various other resources of power.

Solar energy is in fact great to the Natural environment compared to other typical energy types. Solar power may be used for many daily jobs such as cooking, heating, and drying of garments and etc. It could also be used to make food. It is also a important electrical power source, that may be equally reliable and cost-efficient.

Thus solar energy power’s global demand keeps growing and is in fact little by little getting extra than it’s supply. Solar power is thoroughly clean. No non-renewable fuels are used to produce electricity with solar energy.

Solar power is among the simplest developing industries. The reason why? Since plenty of people decide to make funds: solar consumers, shareholders, business owners, workers, contractors, scientists, brokers. The record of individuals benefiting from its rising popularity is growing rapidly.

I hope these solar energy information were helpful to you. You could also go through solar energy advantages and drawbacks for more details about this topic.

Article by James Copper

The U.S. federal National Renewable Energy Laboratory offers a renewable energy program that studies and disseminates news on the latest in energy efficient building technologies. Recognizing that construction designed around energy efficiency is crucial to growing the countries energy independence, these renewable energy programs research as well as train U.S. residents. They work closely with manufacturers and others in the construction and building industry, promote renewable energy endeavours and provide information to both consumers and builders about the financial savings involved in renewable energy. NREL also works with state and municipal regulatory agencies to improve their building regulations and codes and their energy standards for appliances.

This NREL Building Technologies Program supports renewable energy research and development, helping it stay focused on areas such as materials for switch able window technology, thermodynamics, building heat transfer, and engineering of renewable energy heat and cooling systems. The engineers and research scientist of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory work closely with the industry, testing and evaluating new designs for buildings, new technology and new energy-efficient equipment for both commercial and residential structures.

The primary focus of the NREL building technologies program is the improvement of residential dwellings, commercial structures, the equipment and other components of such buildings, the energy involved in heating and cooling each and delivering the requisite water, the tools to analyze energy consumption, green energy manufacturing, and energy-efficient appliance and lighting standards. Key to these missions are such NREL initiatives as its Zero Energy building program, its initiative for Solid State Lighting, and its Electro chromic Window project. An initiative called Building America is another important offshoot of the renewable energy focus of the building technologies program. NREL also collaborates with a similar building technologies initiative of the federal Department of Energy. This is administered by the Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy office.

Distributed energy is another facet of NREL initiatives. This can be used for power to our base loads, during peak time hours, as backup power, as remote power and for heating and cooling. Renewable distributed energy refers to the many small and modular technologies to generate power that work in combination with storage systems and energy management to advance the efficiency and improve the overall operation of our electricity delivery, whether connected to an electrical grid or not.

NRELs Distributed Energy Program supports renewable energy by researching various technologies that are thermally activated. It also develops the EERE program, including its Web site and other communications. NREL collaborates as well with the non-profit technology transfer associations and organizations developed throughout the various states.

From DER the consumer realizes improved reliability in its renewable and other energy, improved quality of power and its delivery, and the chance for participation in a choice of electric power markets which, through competition, brings down the cost. DER can potentially resolve transmission line congestion. Even the pricing, strengthen the security of energy and stabilize the electricity grid. With the implementation of DER technology dangerous emissions can be reduced and various applications of power and heat can become more efficient.

Use Of Solar Energy In Regular Existence

Article by Merri Rickel

Photo voltaic power is today’s’ regarded renewable resource of power that is offered in lots. This is also known as clear vitality source. Use of this power has deployed its application in most of the fields. Sun electrical power is widely employed for many functions in the two the industrial as properly as domestic requires. The important advantage of making use of the energy is to save the environment and earth.

Use of renewable energy has been depicted in the type of photo voltaic devices like solar panels, solar h2o heaters, solar cookers, photo voltaic calculators etc. These are smaller products making use of which solar power can be harnessed. You can also set up photo voltaic electrical power at dwelling alternatively of electrical power from the federal government. For this you just will need a roof to set up the solar panel.

Overview About Solar Power

These days, the environment requires vitality for the setting due to polluted fuels and other dynamics. Similarly solar energy is coming directly as a result of sun as a cost-free resource.
