Why Install a Solar Roof Panel
Executive Summary about Solar Roof By Dan A Swanson
The advancements in solar technology has helped in creating more efficient and light weight solar cells that make solar roof panels a more practical choice for the ordinary households. Solar cells of the solar roof panels are able to convert sunlight into solar energy which can be used for providing electrical energy to your home.
These solar shingles or solar roof panels are meant to replace the regular shingles of your home, thus providing a waterproof coverage to your home and also generating electrical power as an added advantage. As far as their installation is concerned, a solar roof panel is easiest to install.
Advanced solar technology is able to produce solar cells that can produce 20% efficiency, as compared to 7-10% produced by older cells.
The different kinds of solar roof panels are the traditional types, advanced types and compact types while the best ones are light weight panels which are less expensive, smaller in size and still capture sufficient amount of energy every day.
Benefits of a Solar Roof Panel
Executive Summary about Solar Roof By Eben Jaimes
With the high cost of living, more and more people are turning to renewable energy generation for their homes. One of the main sources of renewable energy, that seems to be the most popular, is having a solar roof panel installed on your home.
Having a solar roof panel is an extremely efficient supplier of energy. This means that the utility companies have to pay you. You will be happy to know that by generating electricity from a solar roof panel, you will help reduce greenhouse gas emission. A simple 3kW solar system reduces carbon dioxide emissions very close to the amount of carbon dioxide emissions given off by a passenger car traveling 8,000 miles per year.
Also, with a solar roof panel, you can think long term. Almost all of the satellites that orbit the earth are powered by solar energy. As a special benefit, a solar roof panel system is eligible for a $2,000 federal tax credit. If you happen to live in California, the California Solar Initiative (CSI), offers an up-front rebate.
