When is it a good time to install a new roof-integrated solar system for an agriculture property?

The best time to install a new roof-integrated solar system for your agricultural property depends on several factors. Here are a few things to consider:

Time of Year

The best time to install a new solar system is during the warmer months when there is less chance of rain or snow. This ensures that the installation process can be completed quickly and efficiently.

Roof Condition

If your farm has an old or damaged roof, it is best to replace the roof before installing a new solar system. This will help to avoid any potential leaks or damage to your new solar panels.

Energy Needs

Consider your energy needs when deciding on the best time to install a new solar system. If you are planning to use a lot of energy during the summer months, it may be best to install your system in the spring so that it is ready to use when you need it.

With all of those said, the best time to install a new roof-integrated solar system is now!

What are the Benefits of Installing a Roof-Integrated Solar System for my farm?

Aside from savings and positive environmental impact a solar panel system can provide, there are several more benefits that a property owner will get when they opt to install a roof-integrated solar system:

Refined curb appeal

Solar panels don’t have to look ugly. Modern solar installations have become almost a work of art in the curb appeal they bring to your property.

An integrated solar roof will maintain all the energy gathering benefits while keeping the aesthetic of your business. Apart from that, it is designed to fit in solar panels with minimal effort, making it almost invisible when observing it from the ground.

Increased Moisture Resistance

Your solar panel system may be installed on your farm’s roof, requiring it to be strong. For that reason, making sure that your roof will stand the test of time and against nature is important. An integrated roof solar system can provide better resistance against moisture because the installation required is done by flashing - not drilling - and since no holes will be made, the chances of water penetration will be minimal.

Better Safeguard against nesting animals and pests

Mounted solar panels racks grant space for birds and pests to live in - they love to nest and burrow under a solar panel because they feel protected by it.

What's the downside of it?

Bird nests crowd under solar panels, and that greatly affects the airflow the panel needs to cool itself down. Without proper airflow, overheats can occur and will cause a decrease in energy output. Pests can damage the panels and can cause costly repairs.

If the panels are integrated into the roof, there are effective options available at your disposal such as spikes or mesh to keep these critters out.

Property value boost

A lot of property owners nowadays realize the advantages of having a solar panel system installed on their properties and this also includes farms. Apart from the savings and positive environmental impact it can provide, they also started seeing an increase in property value.

Solar Battery Backup

Depending on your farm’s operations, a battery backup system may make sense. These can also be paired with a generator to ensure that your farm never loses power. These are big features for chicken or turkey coops, where a loss of power, even for a few hours, can mean a catastrophic loss of livestock. These can also power well water pumps or other essential features.

Solar Powered Generator

Although these are not solar powered, it doesn’t mean that they don’t work well with solar and battery systems. Our focus is to ensure your operations are not disrupted, and often that includes a generator. In the event of a loss of power, a battery backup system can discharge power, just as a generator would. Oftentimes, generators are included as a “backup to the backup.” The batteries can discharge first, saving your expensive fuel. If the batteries become depleted, the generator will kick on, and while providing power, it will also charge the batteries. This becomes even more valuable in the event of massive storms, where the solar powered battery may not be able to charge as quickly due to heavy cloud cover.

Roof Replacement

If your solar system is going on a barn roof, you’re eligible for a roof replacement included in your system cost. These are often eligible for all the incentives as well. Essentially, you’re getting a new roof for 20-25% of the cost.
