For a minimum 1 kW rooftop solar system the considerable requirement is 130 square feet that 12 square meters of flat, whereas shadow-free area which should be preferably south-facing. Mostly the sizing and positioning depends also on local factors of solar radiation and weather conditions and shape of the roof.

The rooftop systems are installed at the roofs of residential and commercial apartments, housing societies, community centres, government organizations, private institutions etc.

A solar rooftop system is considered to have the solar panels which are installed on the roof of any residential, commercial, institutional and industrial buildings.

It can be of two types: (i) Off-Grid Solar Rooftop System (Battery storage facility). (ii) Grid Connected Solar Rooftop System.

A grid-connected solar rooftop system, or grid-connected PV (photovoltaic effect) power system is an electricity generating solar PV power system which is connected to a utility grid. In this the generated DC power from SPV panel is converted to AC power using power conditioning unit as well as it is fed to the grid either of 33 kV/11 kV which is three phase lines or of 440/220 Volt which is considered to be three or single phase line depending on the extent of the system installed at institution, commercial establishment, residential complex, etc.

The net metering connects with the grid rooftop. Wherein the customers pay to the viability on the net meter reading basis only. On the other hand, two meters can also be installed to measure the export and import of power separately.

i) The electricity generation which is formed at the consumption centre and has the capacity for the savings in transmission and distribution losses in the solar power system.

ii) There is Low developing time

iii) It consists to be containing of no requirement of the additional land

iv) It improves the tail-end of the grid voltages.

As considering any electrical component, the proper installation will seek limit any dangers. But to be at the safer side an individual should still take care to ensure that their system is not easily accessible by children or animals who can potentially damage the system or else injure themselves. If your system gets damaged in any way, immediately consider for the assistance of Solar Doctor.

Solar panels have gone through any stages of the professional testing and are capable to resist itself in any kind of natural environment then may it be heavy rain, wind or the natural cycles of heat and cold for many years. Whereas in same exceptional cases, whereas the consideration of have rain and lighting the rooftops can get effected.

It is necessary as well as advisable to keep the surface of the solar panels or the rooftops clean to maximize and increase the power generation. Whereas, cleaning them at least once in a week is important.

The solar power system or the rooftops are the solar device working under the energy of the solar and hence, in the sunny days the generation of the solar energy will be more. Where as in the cloudy as well as in the rainy environment the generation of the energy will be less but not zero.

Ideally yes. To achieve maximum performance of your solar system, solar panels need to be tilted at a certain angle. Moreover, different tilts are recommended to optimize solar system performance in summer, in winter and all the year round. It should be noted however that for system performance tilt angle is less critical than orientation.
