Photovoltaic systems are a clean and cost-efficient alternative to a traditional utility supply. Early solar designs contributed to a misconception that PV systems can distract from a home's appeal. However, advances in technology have created solar panels with new designs in terms of aesthetics and functionality. Sol Energy works to provide Colorado residents the right solar design for their project budget and needs.
If you are considering solar electric for a new construction project it is important to have your architect working together with Sol Energy at the earliest possible moment. Small details such as shade, roof pitch and angle can have a significant impact on the overall performance of your array. A “design-to-build” approach will ensure that you maximize your budget, and achieve your desired energy savings long term. Sol Energy works collaboratively with architects and builders to skillfully incorporate PV systems into their building designs. Contact us to get your solar design project started.
Whether an existing building or new structure, adding solar panels as a functional design component could be an option for your project. This innovative design approach to using the PV array as a functional design element serves to generate solar electricity while also decreasing heat gain.
PV arrays can be more than just subtle design elements, they can become entire exterior surfaces, creating new texture and color, such as on the new Carbondale Community Recreation Center. With this approach, PV arrays are more than just green energy, they are an integral part of the architectural vision.
The Perfect FIt
How PV arrays work with new and existing homes has come a long way from squares and rectangles. Sol Energy can now install solar panels that match the angle of your homes roof. Not only does this create a beautiful, purposeful look, it also maximizes an available roof area to generate more clean energy from your roof.
