What if I have trees shading my roof?

Updated: Jun 28, 2023

If you have trees shading your roof, it can reduce the amount of solar energy that your panels can generate. This can lead to lower energy savings and higher electricity bills.

There are a few things you can do to address tree shading:

  • Trim the trees. This is the most common solution and can be done by a professional tree trimmer. Trimming the trees will allow more sunlight to reach your solar panels, which will increase their efficiency.

  • Move the solar panels. If the trees are shading your roof, we may need to love the location to a part of the roof that is not shaded.

If you are considering installing solar panels and you have trees shading your roof, you should schedule a consultation. We can assess the situation and recommend the best solution for your needs.

During your consultation, we will go over your roof shade report. This report will show you how much sunlight your roof receives throughout the day and where the trees are located. We will use this information to help you decide if you need to trim the trees.

We can also help you find a tree trimmer who is experienced in working with solar panels. We want to make sure that your trees are trimmed in a way that does not damage your solar panels.

We are committed to helping you get the most out of your solar panels. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and we will help you find the best solution for your needs.
