Solar power provides farms and homes a tremendous opportunity to become more energy independent. Whether it’s a consultation on a residential solar power system or installing solar power systems for farms, KSUNsolar can help you get started with your energy needs.
Our experts will guide you through all the steps: from selecting the size of the solar panels, choosing where the panels should be installed, providing a detailed energy and financial analysis, and delivering a professional solar installation.
With a residential solar power system or solar power system for farms, you can start saving money on energy bills and enjoy long-term protection from rising electricity costs.
There are many ways to mount solar power systems. Unless your property or house is surrounded by tall trees, KSUNsolar can make solar work for you. We are also able to supply Wind Turbine and can help with your small-scale wind turbine installation too.
Benefits of Solar Power System at Home
Solar Energy Power is growing in popularity. Recent innovations in solar system technology, tax incentives by the government and the ability to economize on electricity bills are
the reasons why people have shifted to solar power systems.
Your government would allow you to feed extra generated electricity back to the grid. Excess energy is supplied to the grid that will pay for you.
Solar Panel Rooftop Mounts
KSUNsolar is proud to offer affordable and energy cost-saving solar panel roof mounts. Our expert solar consultants carefully factor structural and building code issues to
provide the right solar panel roof mount solution to home and farms from the buyers in the world.
The ideal orientation a solar panel roof mount installation is facing south ( in northern continents ) where optimum energy production will be achieved. If your roof faces east or
west your overall energy production will typically be 10 to 25% lower compared to a south-facing. On sloped roofs, the rack supporting the solar array is usually flush-mounted for
aesthetic, cost and structural reasons. The annual energy production is also dependent on the tilt angle of the array (and roof).
Other things to consider for installing solar panel roof mounts are summarized below:
Rooftop Mounted Solar Panels
Metal or shingle roofs are great locations for residential solar power systems. Turn your rooftop into a power plant so you can cut down on energy spending and boost your home’s value!
Common Roof Types
Solar roof mounting can be complex without expertise and understanding about specific roof types. KSUNsolar has installed solar power systems on all types of metal and shingle roofs. The rack for both applications is similar and the main difference is the connection between the rack and the roof surface. Common roof types are:
1. Tile roof racking system (Sloping Roof);
2. Galvanized roof racking system (Sloping Roof);
3. Flat concrete roof racking system.
Ground-Mounted Solar Panels
A popular installation approach is ground-mounted solar panels. In situations where you have some ground area to work with (free of shade), and when you want the array off your roof,
consider a ground mounted solar option. About 30% of our solar installations for farms and homes are ground-mounted. KSUNsolar has installed some of the largest residential ground-mounted solar arrays in many places for homes with large electric bills. Ground-mounted solar considerations are economical installations and eliminate the need for rooftop work. Open frame structures allow greater ventilation of the panels, improving electrical efficiency of the solar array since solar cell efficiency drops under hot summer temperatures. Other things to consider for solar ground mounts are summarized below:
Ground Mounted Solar Panels
For properties with a larger lot size, a ground mount option is a great choice and very popular. Ground mounted installations work great as solar power systems for farms and other properties with limited roofing options. Go ahead for more information.
As the name implies, your solar system will be located on the ground.
The main advantage of ground mounted systems is that there is a wide range of options to choose from, depending on your location, your needs and the proposed design.
Ground mounted solar racking options you can choose from are:
1. Foundation mount
2. Ballasted footing mount
3. Pole mount
4. Multi-pole mount
5. Smart Flower
KSUNsolar Tracker with 2-Axis Tracking System
The KSUNsolar Tracking System is a Made in China high quality, 2-axis solar tracker. The solar tracker is controlled by GPS and automatically tracks the sun from early morning to late evening.
For residential, farm or larger commercial installations, KSUNsolar sun tracking solar panels are high-end, high-efficiency solar solutions.
Learn more below about the benefits of installing a solar tracking system on your farm or residential property.
KSUNsolar Trackers Mounting
Generate up to 40% more power per kilowatt of solar panel capacity. KSUNsolar solar panels can rotate and track the sun from morning to evening, capturing significantly more energy per unit of solar panel than fixed (non-tracking) solar arrays. Go ahead for more information.
Since the KSUNsolar Tracker maintains optimum orientation to the sun, the power output is higher and more consistent per kW of array capacity throughout the day. A fixed solar array like a roof or ground mount will produce a pronounced bell-shaped curve with higher amplitude and shorter duration.
