Contents — Top Solar Mistakes to Avoid


Incorrectly Sized System

Properly sizing your solar energy system is crucial for meeting your household's energy needs without overspending or falling short. Factors like your average energy consumption and roof space available for panels should all be considered during the sizing process.

At PHILERGY German Solar, our solar engineers will personally consult you to know more about your home or business' energy needs and recommend you the best size solar energy system best to fit your needs.

Poor Panel Placement

The effectiveness of your solar panels relies heavily on their exposure to sunlight. When choosing the placement for your panels, consider factors such as the orientation of your roof, potential shading from nearby structures or trees, and any obstructions that could block sunlight throughout the day. Conducting a site analysis or seeking guidance from a solar expert can ensure your panels are positioned to receive maximum sunlight exposure.

Even small amounts of shading can significantly reduce the energy output of solar panels. Before installation, carefully assess your property for potential shading sources throughout the day, such as trees or neighboring buildings.

PHILERGY solar engineers will take into account your building's roof size and orientation to properly optimize your system's panel placement to get the most energy from the sun.

Choosing Low-Quality Equipment

Investing in high-quality solar panels and other system components is essential for maximizing energy production and reliability over the system's lifespan. While cheaper equipment may seem like a cost-saving option initially, it often lacks the durability, efficiency, and warranty coverage of reputable brands. Prioritize quality, safety, and reliability when selecting solar panels, inverters, mounting hardware, and other system components.

PHILERGY German Solar provides the highest quality components in the Philippines, from solar panels down to solar cables and even cable mouldings. Backed up by extensive warranties, you can rest assured that your solar energy system will last you for years and years to come.

Skipping Professional Installation

While DIY solar installation may seem appealing for cost-saving purposes, it can lead to safety hazards, subpar performance, and voided warranties if not done correctly. Hiring a licensed and experienced solar installer ensures proper system design, installation, and compliance with local building codes and regulations. Professional installers also offer warranties and ongoing support to address any issues that may arise.

Choosing an Unreliable and Inexperienced Solar Company

The solar industry is known for its volatility, often referred to as the "solar coaster." A key indicator of a solar company's reliability and expertise is its longevity. Companies that have navigated the industry's ups and downs for many years are more likely to be around to support your system and honor warranties in the future. Look for a company with at least a decade of experience to ensure stability and knowledge.
