Homeowners are installing solar panels to receive the financial and clean-power benefits they provide. If you're thinking about taking this next step, here are four things to consider when installing solar panels on a home.

Location of the Home

A big question to ask is if the home is in the right position for maximum sun exposure. North-facing roofs won't receive as much sunlight compared to south-facing ones. The house's location within the world can also be a factor in how much sunlight it sees. Before installing solar panels, ensure that the home receives enough sunlight to allow the solar panels to function properly.
