simplifying solar panel installation
Solar Red, a start up solar power company based out of San Jose, CA is making some bold claims about reducing the cost of installing solar panels up to 25% through their interesting plug and play mounting bracket that interleaves into residential roofing shingles during construction or can be retrofitted into residential roofs. According to the company it would cost you $825 in additional costs to make a new roof solar ready through their solar mounting product line.
Once the Solar Red mounting brackets are installed, compatible solar panels can be simply clicked into place, saving thousands of dollars in reduced installation costs claims the company. Traditionally adding solar panels onto your roof require bolting of racking and complicated wiring that can take up precious time which adds to the upfront cost of going solar.
Solar Red’s intent with their mounting products is to shorten the learning curve so that roofers and construction workers can install solar panels with ease, which would help solar go mainstream wouldn’t you agree? Companies like Solar Red that are focusing on making the installation process easier can significantly add value to the solar power industry if they can develop a product that lives up to the aggressive claims Solar Red has made.
