How To Hide Wires When Installing Your Solar Panels

When installing solar panels on your roof, you might wonder how all the wires for those panels connect together, and whether you’ll see any electrical conduit running across the roof when looking at your array from ground level. Chances are you won’t, as Pink Energy has the answer to keep you from seeing anything but your panels.

Pink Energy connects the wiring for all of your panels through a metal piece of hardware called a SolaDeck, which serves as a bundling point for the wiring and provides the gateway to run that wiring through your attic or crawl space and then to your inverter panel mounted on the side of your home. The SolaDeck is installed underneath your panels and flashed underneath your shingles to prevent leaks.

Pink Energy installation crew leader Kyle Elmiger does an excellent job in showcasing the SolaDeck in one of Pink Energy’s instructive YouTube videos. Check it out.

And that is how your home can have solar panels on your roof without electrical conduit being seen. However, if your home does not have an attic, you will see electrical conduit run to the side of your roof and down to your inverter. We do that as inconspicuously as possible, with the conduit being secured to your roof and run neatly across the roof until it is sent down the side of your home and into your inverter (the device that converts the direct current electricity from your panels into the alternating current electricity used by your home). Here’s a glimpse of how that looks.

With arrays that can be linked together in larger blocks, there will be even less conduit showing on your roof. (Courtesy Pink Energy)

The bottom line is that no matter whether you have an attic space to hide the electrical conduit, Pink Energy customers are in for a very neatly installed product that you will be proud to own.
