Installing Solar Panels on a Tile Roof

Tile roofs have been increasing in popularity across the United States in modern homes. Tile roofs offer a distinctive aesthetic appeal to any home and are suitable for solar panel installation.

Investing in solar energy for your home can help you create a sustainable environment for green living, energy independence and even help with your finances by saving you money over time.

Understanding Tile Roofs

Tile roofs, renowned for their longevity and durability, offer a distinctive aesthetic appeal to any home. The tiles may be made of various materials, such as clay, concrete, or slate, each with unique considerations for solar installation. While most tile roofs can accommodate solar panels, some may need professional assessment to ensure a suitable fit, a service offered by our team at Peninsula Solar.

Preparation for Solar Installation

The pathway to energy independence begins with meticulous preparation. Our team carries out a comprehensive roof inspection to verify its structural soundness and weight capacity to hold solar panels. We then determine the most effective orientation and tilt angle for the panels to maximize solar energy production. Moreover, we take care of the necessary permits and approvals, facilitating a smooth transition towards your energy autonomy.
