As a leading solar panel installer in Seattle, WA, we take pride in our ability to provide exceptional solar solutions to our customers. Recently, we installed an impressive 11.75 kW solar PV system in Seattle’s Laurelhurst neighborhood. This system used top-of-the-line equipment and overcame the unique challenge of a very tall roof with a steep pitch comprised of three different types of roofing materials. In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at the design, equipment, and installation process of this solar PV system.
PV System Design
Our team of design experts pulled out all the stops to create a layout that pleased the customer and complimented the unique design of the home. To overcome the challenges posed by the steep pitch and different roofing materials, we used a combination of SunModo racking with S-5! clamps and a Unirac roof mount system. This layout provided a sturdy and secure foundation for the solar panels, and the all-black, REC Alpha Pure panels added an eye-catching aesthetic to the home.
To achieve maximum efficiency and durability, this customer chose top-of-the-line equipment for this solar PV system installation. 29 405W REC Pure Alpha panels provide high-efficiency solar technology with a 25-year warranty and the highest rating against environmental factors such as rain, snow, fire, and hail. We paired these panels with 29 Enphase IQ8+ inverters to convert the DC power generated by the solar panels into AC power for use in the home.
With the unique challenges of this project, our installation team worked diligently to ensure a smooth and efficient installation process. Our team utilized their tried-and-true expertise to securely install the SunModo racking system with S-5! clamps and Unirac roof mount system quickly and safely.
Our recent solar PV system installation in Seattle’s Laurelhurst neighborhood showcased our commitment to using top-of-the-line equipment and expertise to overcome unique challenges and create a layout that not only pleased the customer but also offset the home’s energy usage.
