Types of Installations We Offer
RSP offers a wide range of trusted solar panels and systems, all with their own advantages. Our installers work closely with our customers to ensure we are finding the perfect solar solution for their homes. The systems we install include:
- Roof Mounts – The most well-known type of solar mount. A roof solar system is typically one of the least expensive forms of solar installation and is not as labor-intensive. A roof solar system utilizes the unused space on your roof.
- Ground Mounts – Ground mounts are much easier to maintain than roof systems, and have stronger racking. They are more versatile as the size of your roof is no longer a factor. Your panel temperatures will be lower, which may reduce the amount of damage your panels will sustain and have a higher output.
- Tracking Mounts – Tracking mount systems come in many different forms to make them as efficient as possible. To receive the most amount of sun, your panels should be perpendicular to the sun. The system tracks the sun and moves accordingly.
- Solar Canopy Mounts – Solar canopies are similar to ground mounts, with solar canopies being taller to make room for a car or living area underneath. They are more efficient when it comes to using space compared to ground mounts and are more versatile. Some states even have incentives for solar canopies compared to ground mounts.
How Does RSP Solar Work?
Once the panels are installed, sunlight will begin to be converted into electrical energy. The photons from the sun rays are collected in the panels and pushed through the system to create a DC or direct current, electrical current. Once converted to electricity, the DC current passes through a system called an inverter. The inverter transfers the DC current into an AC or alternating current, which can be used to power appliances. The AC current is then sent to the breaker panel. The now usable energy will be used to power the house, and send any excess energy back into the electric grid. The utility meter will take note of the energy sent back, and can provide you with tons of energy savings! The energy you do use can be used on any home appliance you would need, from lights to fridges, to microwaves, and more. Solar is an investment that pays for itself, many solar users actually produce excess energy, which rewards you with credit by giving back to the grid!

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does installation take?
On average the installation of a ground system takes about one to two days, and the roof mount takes one to three. Once installed the utility provider will need to give approval and the time for that to be completed will vary.
When is the best time to buy solar?
Right now actually! In the United States, the tax incentives for solar is at the best they have ever been. With these incentives comes a lower overall cost for solar, that we have never seen before. As solar gets more popular we can expect these tax incentives to lessen, making now the hottest time to get into solar.
Will Cold Weather Impact the System?
Based on your type of panel, power output, and wattage, cold weather can actually increase your panel’s output. Solar panels can still generate power in snowfall, and sometimes even have improved performance in cold weather.
