Wall-Mounted Solar Arrays / Solar Awnings
Lacking a good south-facing roof? If you have a south-facing wall but an east-west roofline, a wall-mount is a great option.
Mounting solar to a south-facing wall has many additional benefits:
- Extra solar energy capture: a wall-mount can take advantage of collecting an energy boost from reflected sunlight off the wall.
- Cooler operation: with better air circulation around the panels, solar cells operate cooler for improved.
- Building shade: a wall-mounted solar array helps shade the south-facing wall and lower heat gain to the structure. For air-conditioned buildings, this can have an extra energy benefit by reducing cooling loads.
