Are you dreaming of solar but concerned that your roof isn’t right for it? Maybe you don’t think you have enough south-facing area, or the pitch might be too steep? Don’t count yourself out just yet! When you have your system designed and installed by industry experts like the Arch Electric team, you have more options than you think. While there are a few other things to consider when planning to go solar, this is one of the most frequent questions we get!

It’s true that when you’re as far north as Wisconsin, it is ideal to have your panels facing as south as possible to maximize their exposure to the sun. However, if your roof doesn’t offer an open south-facing area, our team can design a tailored system for your roof that spreads the panels out to capture as much solar energy as possible.

A system with several arrays facing different orientations often compliments a battery storage system by leveling the solar production curve throughout the day. With everything designed in-house by Arch team members, we can handle all different roof types, working with obstacles such as chimneys, skylights, dormers, and more. Once designed, our professional installers will make your solar array a reality!

If you had previously discounted your home as having poor solar access, contact our team! We might be able to find a workable solution and solar system that is right for you!


Pictured below are a few examples of our installs, showcasing the different ways we can work with tricky rooftops.
