Build their GREEN dream home!

A guide to solar for builders and architects.

Some of your clients already know they want solar. Others have no idea how much money they can save with renewable energy. Partner with SunCommon to add solar to your next new home build and make your clients’ green dreams come true.

  • Competitive pricing and a variety of products to fit your project needs
  • An average sized home will need about 200 square feet for panels, either on the roof or ground.
  • The panels should face south, though southeast and southwest orientations are okay.
  • Avoid nearby trees and obstructions (General rule of thumb: if a tree could fall down and hit the panels, it’s close enough to shade them).
  • If placing panels on a roof avoid vents, dormers, and other obstructions on the south facing roof.
  • Panels will connect to an inverter that will change the PV electricity from DC to AC from the homes use. This equipment is ideally sited no more than 200’ from the panels. 
  • A dry, blank 8’x10’ area on a wall in the basement is ideal for inverters and other interconnection equipment. Avoid overhead water or drainage pipes if at all possible.
  • Leave room in your main service panel for at least a 40 amp breaker.

“My dad is somewhat of an old school construction guy and he likes to build things for a reasonable price, which we thrive on. Once we sat down with our accountant, and looked at some of the tax benefits we could tap into utilizing solar, it was a no brainer for my dad.”
