How much space do I need on my roof for solar?

There are MANY factors that go into determining if a building’s roof is a viable option for installing a solar electric system. If the roof of your house isn’t a good option because of size or orientation, there may be another building on your property that is a better fit. Many local systems are installed on garages and barns.
