For your home solar system, partner with Harmon Solar, a locally owned, highly ethical installer. Their experts will guide you through the entire process, from planning through permitting to installation. They will determine if your home is a good candidate for a solar system.

It starts with the roof. A solar system can be installed on just about any type of roof, including shingles, metal, tile, slate, composites, wood shake, cement tiles, S-tiles, and flat roofs. Harmon Solar utilizes a licensed roofing contractor on all solar installations. Not because they have to, But Harmon takes extra steps to ensure that every job is completed to their high standards.

Next, look at the placement of your house relative to the sun. Ideally solar panels are placed on the south-facing roof areas to get the best sun exposure . . East-facing and West-facing roof areas are also good candidates and in some instances North-facing roof areas can still be utilized.  Every house and every roof is different, that’s why it’s always best to consult with a solar expert.

The typical home solar system installation in the Phoenix area requires approximately 500 square feet. Harmon Solar’s project engineers will calculate how much solar capacity you need for your home and will determine the best place on your home’s roof to mount the solar panels.

Most Phoenix area homes are good candidates for solar power and Harmon Solar can help you make the move to solar.
