What is the Go Solar Power Pergola? Why is it a perfect alternative to a Roof or Ground Mount System?
The latest trend in residential Solar Energy is the Solar Pergola. When Roof Mounted Solar Panels do not make sense for your home and your outdoor space is limited for ground mount panels, the Solar Pergola becomes the perfect solution.
One of the best benefits of the solar pergola is that there is no need for additional land (one of the main drawbacks of ground-mounted solar panels). Solar Pergolas can be placed over existing patios to create a beautiful shaded entertainment space while your solar panels take full advantage of the sun shining above. Pergolas can even be modified to place over a driveway to make a Solar Carport.
Solar Pergola is a great solution for homes with the less than perfect roofs or homeowners that are worried about the look of the panels from the front of the house.
Many businesses like eateries, or venues with outdoor seating are ideal for a standalone solar pergola. Imagine the savings for your business by utilizing an existing space to supply power.
How does a Solar Pergola Compare to a Traditional Roof Mount Installation?
Without a doubt, in most cases, the traditional Roof Mount Solar Panel System is the smartest choice for homeowners. A typical roof is usually in an ideally located spot to collect sun rays. However, a Roof Mount system is not always suitable for every Roof. The roofs, pitch, angle, shading, size all can become an obstacle during a roof install.
When you install a Solar Pergola, you’re starting from scratch. This gives you the ability to create a system that is perfectly optimized for maximum solar electricity production.
Having the option of designing a Solar Pergola is a major benefit, but keep in mind, it can add some additional expenses to your installation as we are creating a structure to hold your panels that did not exist before. Homeowner’s that have already been considering building a pergola or gazebo, combining with Solar Panels is an easy choice.
