Frequently Asked Questions About Rooftop Solar

As corporations become increasingly aware of the environmental and economic benefits, the adoption rate for rooftop solar is skyrocketing. Here, we'll answer some of the most frequently asked questions about rooftop solar in Mexico.

1. What are the main advantages of rooftop solar?

Economic Benefits: Adopting rooftop solar can lead to substantial savings on electricity bills. Depending on various factors, such as the system's size and local electricity rates, a company can expect cost reductions in the range of 20% to 40%.

Environmental Benefits: Rooftop solar reduces the reliance on fossil fuels, which, in turn, leads to a significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. This is vital for corporations aiming to achieve sustainability goals and reduce their carbon footprint.

2. Are there any installation costs for rooftop solar?

No, there are no upfront costs or costs for installation.

3. Do I need permits to install rooftop solar panels?

There are no permits required in Mexico for solar rooftop systems below 500 KWp.

4. How long does it take to install a rooftop solar system?

Typically, the installation time for a rooftop solar project ranges from five to seven months. This duration includes site assessment, system design, permitting, and the actual installation. Once installed, the system can immediately start producing electricity, allowing corporations to save on their electricity costs by up to 40% depending on the location.

5. Who are the EPC contractors that will install the project?

Our investment-grade contractor maintains an A-rating at Standard & Poor's and uses the highest-quality Huawei and LONGi components. They are a leading developer of commercial and industrial-scale (C&I) solar energy and battery storage projects in the U.S. and Mexico.

6. How much maintenance do rooftop solar panels require?

Rooftop solar panels require minimal maintenance. It's generally advised to inspect the system annually for any dirt or debris that might hinder performance. The maintenance and operation of your rooftop solar system is included in the elctricity rate and covered under an O&M agreement. Our solar panels are designed to last for 25 years, with only a slight decrease in efficiency over time.

7. Can rooftop solar panels generate power during cloudy days or at night?

Solar panels are most efficient in direct sunlight, but they can still produce electricity on cloudy days, albeit at reduced efficiency. However, solar panels cannot generate power at night. To maintain a continuous power supply, many systems are integrated with the grid, or companies can implement energy storage solutions.

8. Will my roof be strong enough to support the solar panels?

Before installing a solar system, we will visit your site at no cost to conduct a thorough roof assessment to ensure its structural integrity. Most modern roofs are built to support the additional weight of solar panels.
