Solar 101: Attaching your solar system to your roof




A solar racking system’s strength is determined in part by the metal racking, but it also depends on the roof’s underlying structure. Rafters and any supporting structures must be strong enough to withstand your region’s maximum wind and snow loads.

In our first article of our Solar 101 series, (“Is my roof ready for solar?“) we discussed the age of our roof and how it affects the finances involved in a solar installation.

Now, we’ll consider the roof’s physical characteristics. After all, the roofing material type and its underlying structure, as well the various angles of its faces and layout, will affect many aspects of the installation.

Attaching the solar panels

Most rooftops in the United States are built up from plywood and finished with asphalt shingles. However, depending on your region and neighborhood aesthetic, the top layer of the roofing type can vary greatly. We often find Spanish tiles in the south, metal seam roofs in the far north, and clay, slate, and concrete tile products peppered all over the map.

All of these roof types will require a mechanical attachment.

QuickMountPV offers up an installation guide – with a very nice series of images – for those installing solar power on top of tiled roofs.

In this installation tweet from Sunrun, you can see how to attach to the plywood base layer of a roof. Underneath the metal flashing, you can see a series of lag bolts and silicon that cures and seals the attachment.

A metal seam roof will also require a hard attachment to the roof, but via a less obtrusive tool, perhaps by someone like S-5!. This quick video by S-5! gives an idea of how that attachment occurs.

But most installations won’t be like these three examples. They will use standard flashing and lag bolts drilled through the existing asphalt shingles.

All major racking manufacturers provide this hardware. Quickbolt offers a unique – almost cute – “microflashing” unit. This is as simple as it gets: drill hole, install sealant, tighten fastener.

Quickbolt microflashing hardware.

Racking hardware connects your panels to the L-feet and the flashing connections mentioned above. All of this hardware is built to engineering specifications and are ready to hold up to the worst that Mother Nature can deliver.

Building codes and setbacks

In South Florida, the local building code requires some rooftop solar systems within a mile of the ocean to be able to withstand uplift generated by winds greater than 180 miles per hour. In the northern United States, snow loads greater than 50 pounds per square foot must be accounted for.

Watch those winds! Florida building codes require rooftop solar to be able to withstand hurricane-force winds.

Wind and snow loads dictate a lot about how your solar system is designed. Racking manufacturer Unirac includes general solar panel setback from the edge of roof requirements in its installation manuals.

In the images below, the areas where wind forces are highest are represented in gray. Thus, engineers suggest we ‘”set back” our solar panels from these areas, or pay extra for hardware to strengthen the attachment points.

Solar panel setbacks for different types of roofs.

Image: Unirac

The strength of a solar racking system is determined in part by the metal racking, but it also depends on the roof’s underlying structure. Specifically, rafters (or trusses) and any supporting structures must be strong enough to withstand your region’s maximum wind loads.

The lag bolts noted above are generally drilled into the wood beams underneath the base layer of your roof’s plywood. As a rule of thumb, in most homes we’re looking for a minimum of two-inch-thick wood beams spaced no more than 36 inches apart.

Your installer will most likely consult with a state-certified structural engineer to determine if your home’s construction is appropriate for solar. While most homes are deemed structurally sound, proving that to some building departments can sometimes be a bit costly.

Wanted: Big chunks of roof

Now that we’ve covered the basics of connecting solar panels to a roof, it’s time to find a place for the panels. The most obvious feature we’re looking for is large, uninterrupted roof space. Bigger chunks of roof are easier, and cheaper, to install solar panels.

Keep in mind that a standard residential solar panel is roughly five and a half feet tall by three feet wide. Pictured below, this 290 to 320 watt solar panel from URE represents a standard residential product. Panel sizes vary by manufacturer and model. For instance, Solaria’s 400 watt PowerXT high efficiency panel is an extra six inches wider.

A typical residential rooftop solar panel.

Image: URE

Using these approximate sizes of the panels and our roof, we can determine roughly how many panels will fit on our roof, and where.

In our next article, we discuss how a home’s latitude affects a solar project’s design and performance. We will also offer examples of how to calculate the electricity generated by a system.

Market in APAC estimated to have largest share during forecast period

APAC has emerged as a global focal point for large investments and business expansion opportunities. The region represents the fastest-growing market worldwide for thermoelectric modules. The increased demand for waste heat recovery, consumer goods, industrial automation, and healthcare monitoring devices is expected to drive this market in the region. APAC has a large consumer electronics industry consisting of countries such as China, Japan, and South Korea, which is the largest manufacturer and end user of consumer devices. South Korea is an important country for manufacturing portable consumer devices while China is the largest exporter of consumer refrigeration devices. Hence, for consumer electronics, the market in APAC is expected to continue to grow as markets in North America and Europe continue to stagnate over time.

North America is the most adversely affected region by the pandemic. Hesitant consumer spending on refrigerator and freezer replacements will drive the demand down for thermoelectric modules for consumer electronics. A decrease in disposable personal income is driving consumer reluctance to replace old appliances as a result of lower spending power in the US and Canada. The North American automotive market witnessed a sharp decline in 2020, resulting in fewer vehicle sales despite the introduction of new vehicle models by major automobile manufacturers. Many existing and potential vehicle buyers in North America are deferring their purchases at present. The commercial aerospace market in North America has also been severely affected, particularly in the US. The purchase of civilian aircraft production in 2020 has declined to around half of that of 2019, which, in turn, has reduced the demand for thermoelectric modules in aerospace applications.

Major vendors in the thermoelectric modules market include Ferrotec (US), II-VI Incorporated (US), KELK (Japan), Laird Thermal Systems (US), Guangdong Fuxin Technology (China), TE Technology (US), Phononic (US), INHECO Industrial Heating & Cooling (Germany), TEC Microsystems (Germany), Crystal (Russia), Kryotherm (Russia), Z-Max (Japan), Kyocera Corporation (Japan), Align Sourcing (US), HiTECH Technologies (US), Hi-Z Technology (US), Merit Technology Group (China), KJLP ELECTRONICS (China), P&N Technology (China), Thermonamic Electronics (China), Hui Mao (China), Wellen Technology (China), and Xiamen HIcool Electronics (China).

Gold Recently Posted Its Biggest Weekly Gain Since The Start Of 2021




PALM BEACH, Fla., May 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The Pandemic has not just harmed humans, it has shred economies around the world, but as each country tries to heal their economy there are unintended results. For instance, in the US, high inflation as a result of large government initiatives… drives the price of precious metals up and up. A December article by metals watchers, FXEmpire said that the collapsing dollar could push gold to $2300 by May 2021. They said that: “The dollar is in the middle of a significant devaluation. The current breakdown could extend into Q2 2021 before the next rebound. We expect sharply higher precious metals prices as a result, with silver and platinum taking the lead… We are in a similar setup to the post-trendline breakdown of gold in 2002/2003. Consequently, (we) believe the dollar is on the verge of an accelerated decline towards 80. The weakening dollar should push gold higher into April/May 2021 before the next 6-month cycle correction.”  Another industry insider, said: “Gold is looking to post its biggest weekly gain since the start of the year as prices crack through $1,800 and set sights on $1,850 an ounce. Analysts are not even ruling out $1,900 for next week, as they cite inflation fears and weaker U.S. dollar. At one point, gold was up more than $70 on the week on Friday, trading above $1,840 an ounce. This strength comes after more than two months of consolidation below the $1,800 level. The final push higher came as the U.S. posted much weaker-than-expected employment data. The U.S. saw only 266,000 jobs created in April. And even though that the number is still healthy, markets were expecting to see one million jobs. The disappointment was doubled when the March figures were revised from 916,000 to 770,000.” Active mining stocks mentioned in today’s commentary include:  Ridgestone Mining Inc. (OTCQB: RIGMF) (TSX-V: RMI), Barrick Gold Corporation (NYSE:GOLD) (TSX:ABX), YAMANA GOLD INC. (NYSE:AUY) (TSX:YRI), Kirkland Lake Gold Ltd. (NYSE:KL) (TSX:KL), Gold Fields Limited (NYSE: GFI).

The article continued: “What we’ve seen is a very significant disappointment. The economy is counting to recover, but it looks like the speed of the recovery, at least on the employment side, may not be as robust as people have hoped for,” TD Securities head of global strategy Bart Melek told Kitco News. This has significant implications when it comes to monetary policy expectations. “That means the Fed will stay true to its words that they will keep the easy monetary policy until they reach maximum employment. It looks like the U.S. is going to have unemployment issues for a while,” Melek pointed out.”

Ridgestone Mining Inc. (TSX-V: RMI) (OTCQB: RIGMF) (FSE: 4U5) BREAKING NEWSRIDGESTONE RELEASES MAIDEN MINERAL RESOURCE ESTIMATE AT GUADALUPE Y CALVO, MEXICO  Ridgestone Mining (“Ridgestone”) is pleased to announce a maiden National Instrument 43-101 (NI 43-101) Mineral Resource Estimate for it’s Guadalupe y Calvo (“GyC”) gold-silver project in Chihuahua, Mexico. The maiden mineral resource was estimated for two principal mineralized structures, the Rosario and Nankin veins, captured within a combined pit-constrained and underground mineral resource model. Mineralization at GyC remains open for expansion both along strike and down-dip at depth. The GyC project is comprised of 20 square kilometres. Ridgestone entered into an option agreement with Endeavour Silver in December 2020 to acquire a 100% interest in the property.


  • Indicated Mineral Resource: 356,000 ounces of gold-equivalent at an average grade of 1.72 g/t AuEq
  • Inferred Mineral Resource: 460,000 ounces of gold-equivalent at an average grade of 4.65 g/t AuEq

* Mineral Resource Estimate for a combined pit constrained and underground scenario at a cut-off grade of 0.27 g/t AuEq in-pit and 1.33 g/t AuEq underground

“We are very pleased with this significant initial mineral resource estimate” commented Jonathan George, CEO “which is a material milestone for any junior exploration company and provides a solid foundation as we move forward to expand the resource both along strike and at depth. We are currently finalizing plans for an upcoming drill program which is planned for this fall after the rainy season. We believe this year will be an exciting and transformational year for the Company as we continue to concurrently advance our Rebeico copper-gold project in conjunction with our GyC gold-silver project.”

The estimate was completed by Marc Jutras, P.Eng., M.A.Sc. of Ginto Consulting Inc. and complies with National Instrument 43-101 (“NI 43-101”) and guidelines developed in 2014 by the Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (“CIM”). Mr. Jutras is a registered professional engineer in the provinces of British Columbia, Quebec and Newfoundland and is independent of Ridgestone.  In accordance with NI 43-101 a Technical report will be filed on SEDAR within 45 days of this release.  CONTINUED… Read this full release more news for Ridgestone Mining by visiting         

In other mining news of note:

Barrick Gold Corporation (NYSE:GOLD) (TSX:ABX) recently reported its results for the first quarter of 2021, noting that with gold and copper production on plan, it was well positioned to achieve its annual guidance.  Production in the latter half of the year is expected to be higher than the first, mainly due to mine sequencing at Nevada Gold Mines, the commissioning of the new leach pad facility at Veladero in Argentina, the ramp-up of underground mining at Bulyanhulu and higher anticipated grades at Lumwana in Zambia.

Barrick’s Tier One gold mines all delivered strong financial performances in Q1 while revenue from its copper mines rose by 31% due to higher copper prices. Net cash increased by $0.5 billion despite an advanced tax payment to the state of Nevada on the back of operating cash flow of $1.3 billion and free cash flow of $0.8 billion.

Kirkland Lake Gold Ltd. (NYSE:KL) (TSX:KL) recently announced results from 38 holes and two wedge holes (23,911 m) of drilling along the Detour Mine Trend (“DMT”) at the Detour Lake property.

Several new holes are also being announced from the area west of the West Pit Mineral Reserves, which also contains limited past drilling.
