What Structural Information Is Important For Solar EPCs For A Successful Rooftop Solar Installation?
In this blog, Heaven Designs is going to discuss about solar installation for rooftop. Which is one of the best replacements to utilize the unused space. There are many other factors including solar pv design that fall into place before installing rooftop solar panels for home or organizations. Firstly, One such very important factor is the solar structure design of the available space. To ensure that the site can effectively withstand the weight and also provide a shade-free area for your client’s solar power generation.
At Heaven Designs, structural report for the solar system design is drafted after the survey. Which provides a detailed analysis of the on grid solar system design structure to be installed at the site, how many panels can it effectively withstand, direction and how the solar panels will be set up if the space requires any special rooftop access and also many other factors. Secondly, Heaven Designs will provide a detailed analysis of what important structural information is drafted from a survey and how is it beneficial to determine your solar project.
The following parameters are considered before designing and determining the generation capacity, based on the site visit.
1. Age Of The Building Structure
The age of the building structure is a very important factor. As per our solar engineering consultants’ report, an ideal strong structure is where 1 sq. m. can support up to 25-30kgs of the weight of solar panels and the mounting structure. For instance, the older the building structure, the lower is the holding capacity of the solar panels. However, we at Heaven Designs provide complete structural stability report before construction for Solar PV Plant begins. Above all, these precautions are taken by our company to ensure the stability of your client’s solar system.
2. Type Of Structure
Based on the type of roof or structure, the rooftop solar pv design will require the necessary components that can successfully mount the panels and maintain stability. Thirdly, some of the common structures under solar structure design for solar installation are RCC roof, metal sheeted and ground-mounted to name a few. Rooftop Solar installation on asbestos sheets is generally avoided due to the involved risk in terms of strength and support as it ages.
3. Area Of Structure
We at Heaven Designs move towards the next step which is to check that if the structure has the space to install all the required components. Most importantly, this includes checking for shades and interruption-free area, location to install the inverter and battery backup, junction box, etc. In addition, this helps in designing a layout of the solar design to understand what components can be placed and if the structure can hold up to the load of the solar PV system.
4. Accessibility To Roof
For all rooftop solar installation, solar engineering consultants will always check to see if there is a proper accessibility to the roof. This ensures that there is proper rooftop accessibility to not only make installation jobs safer and quicker for you but also provide easy access for upcoming maintenance and repair jobs. Moreover, our designers for the solar structure design would plan for walkways and during plant designing between the solar panel rows to ensure the safety of the installation and maintenance technicians. Railings towards the edges of the roof space are important when working at significant height to avoid any mishaps.
5. STAAD And Structural Report
A STAAD report is developed by Heaven Designs after a structural analysis and then solar system design is conducted. Similarly, this report is developed by our high skilled technical team with the help of best in class software which takes into consideration many factors like the weather conditions, capacity of load, component materials, and other factors of the solar site to make the solar EPC effectively understand what quality of components are required to assemble and ensure desired generation capacity with stable support to the system. Lastly,This eliminates possibilities of corrosion and other structure eroding factors.
In conclusion, Solar Structure Design plays a very important initial role for any solar project. It is advisable for the solar EPCs to take a deep dig into structure designs for all their solar projects.
