With the plentiful sunshine in the Ozarks, most homeowners can easily tap into this abundant energy source with solar power systems. All that is needed is adequate roof space for residential solar panel systems in a generally south-facing orientation. Although direct southern exposure is optimal for residential solar, southwest or southeast are almost as good. Even east or west facing residential solar systems can capture enough sunlight for electricity generation and sound investment returns.
Shading is a critical factor to consider when positioning your solar energy system. Trees, and even the shadow of a utility pole can diminish the output of residential solar panels. Trimming or cutting down trees that cast even a brief shadow will vastly improve the output of residential solar energy systems. Let us determine whether your property is appropriate for residential solar power.
