Lume Solar helps you with the feasibility check, which is usually financial as well as geographical. However, Lume also assists you beyond the financial feasibility, as there are a lot of geo lead feasibility checks. We are listing them below to help you to make up your mind if you are considering installing a rooftop solar system
Shadow casting objects near your roof
The best way to check is to walk on your rooftop and see the shadows on it. If there are nearby objects such as trees, pillars, poles which cast a lot of shadows, then it will not be a piece of good news. Shadow casting objects tend to reduce the solar output from your solar system. However, an accurate shadow analysis will be done by our expert team and there is quite a possibility that even though there are shadow casting objects they may not come in the way of your solar system.
Ownership of the roof
Unless you have the requisite rights of the rooftop, you will not be able to enjoy the benefits and savings of the rooftop solar system. For this, an independent house owner is an ideal rooftop solar customer.
However, if you stay in a society or an apartment, you should speak to your RWA or the builder to install rooftop solar on the building so that not just you but the entire building can enjoy the benefits of solar.
Condition of the Rooftop
While you may own rights to your rooftop, the conditioning of the rooftop is required to be at least moderate. Since solar panels are mounted on metallic structures, the rooftop should be able to bear the weight of the entire system. If you are already seeing cracks on your rooftop, you are better advised to repair the rooftop before going for a solar roof.
However, the condition of your rooftop can be accessed very accurately when you opt for a site survey for your system by Lume experts who can then make a better judgment whether the rooftop is conducive for installation or not.
Quality of the Equipment
Premium solar systems last at least 25 years and therefore your benefits are maximized when you go for a high rated system that has been tested, certified and has a good reputation in the market. It is owing to this that at Lume we only use Tier 1 inverters and solar panels which are rated across the world and are of good make.
You should not compromise on the quality for saving a couple of thousand Rupees here and there because in the long run, a high-quality solar system will be worth its weight in gold.
While the economics of going solar is far more favorable now. But the solar system is still a onetime expense. Therefore, you should explore financing options too in case you want to go solar and are unable to afford the system right away. At Lume Solar, we allow our customers to build their own payment plans and several financing options so that you don’t have to wait for a solar system due to financial constraints.
At Lume Solar, we take care of each of the above five points for our clients in the most customized fashion. Right from a high-tech site survey to an engineering solution then installation to financing and then commissioning, it is only right to say that Lume Solar is your perfect solar partner.
