Brian Broe asked:

Jul 25, 2018
I have a large property, while there are trees that cover my house (and roof) I was wondering if solar panels made sense? Even if they weren't directly on roof?

Hi Brian, 

Yes in those cases a ground mounted solar array may be your best option. You can site the solar in a more ideal location for sun access. There is typically some added cost involved in a ground mount vs. a roof mount.

We would suggest getting a ground mount system, not only does this allow you to place your array in a prime location but it will also save you the hassle of removing them down the road when the roof needs replaced.  Any solar provider should be able to show you the difference in production with a roof vs ground array. Good luck.
