Northeast Solar, for safety reasons, recommends solar electric be installed and serviced by qualified professionals.
Your building, roof and attic if present should be inspected by a qualified/experienced BPI air sealing/insulation expert before going solar
We also recommend against solar modules on a residential, commercial or industrial roof that is over ten years old or not vented properly. We suggest your building be inspected by a qualified/experienced BPI air sealing/insulation expert before going solar.
