Roof Mounted Solar Kits
After installing 100's of systems by myself (or with a little) help I've learned a lot about roof top solar. The #1 thing; MICROINVERTERS are the way to go! Watch my video below to learn why. My kits are super complete and customized to your roof. On this site is everything you need to install a roof top solar system on your home.

That Solar Guy
The tricky part of installing solar is the roof layout and installing racking. So it’s important to have all the correct stuff in the correct quantities. No two kits are the same. Our customized solar kits come with a bill of materials that is super complete. I will build YOUR Bill of Materials from the looking at YOUR plan set.
The first step is to determine how much solar do you need. Solar systems are rated in Watts, usually 1,000's of Watt's so when you see numbers like 5.4kW or 8.6kW that means 5,400Watts or 8,600Watts
Way to much to write/read so check out this video on how to determine system size.
