Working with the environment to save the environment

Solar power is a sustainable energy source

Rooftop Solar Systems

The biggest advantage of a solar rooftop system is the possibility to consume directly the energy produced by the pv plant (self-consumption), thus allowing a reduction of the energy taken from the grid.

A rooftop solar power plant or rooftop solar system, is a photovoltaic plant that has its pv panels installed on the roof of a building. The urban environment provides a large amount of empty rooftop spaces and can inherently avoid the potential land use and environmental concerns.

The maximum dimension of a rooftop solar system depends on the area of the roof, so rooftop solar systems are usually small compared to ground-mounted photovoltaic power stations.

The typical dimensions of a photovoltaic panel (power from 280 to 340 Wp based on efficiency and number of cells of which it is composed) is about 1mx2m, so 1 kWp of pv panels covers about 6-7 m2 of roof. 
In addition to the size of the cover, the power of a rooftop solar system is also influenced by other factors such as the position, orientation and inclination of the roof.

Efficient use of space 
Rooftop solar systems on commercial or industrial buildings can reach up to 1-2 Megawatts = 1000-2000 kWp (or more ).
