Solar roof panels are attached to your roof and sit about three or four inches above it on a light metal rail system. As a side benefit the panels protect your roof to some extent thereby extending its life and saving you money. The panels also serve to shade the roof in summer and they allow air to flow between the panels and the roof itself which in turn can mean that you need less air conditioning to cool your house again saving you money and also saving wear and tear on your air conditioning units. Solar roof panels also look attractive and these days they usually have a useful life of at least twenty-five years making them well worth considering as a wise investment on your home.
Solar roof panels are popular and often seen attached on rooftops all over the country usually on a south facing roof to catch the maximum amount of sunshine possible. Solar panels contrary to popular belief do not require sunshine to operate. All they require is light so while a nice sunny day will provide the maximum amount of light a dull cloudy day will still provide enough light for solar roof panels to operate efficiently. This makes them very attractive for while installation costs can be relatively high after that they are almost cost free to run and use.
In the early days of solar roof panels the hope was that one or two panels would help to lower the electricity bill a bit. To be honest sometimes it seemed more of a gimmick than a real cost savings. Things have changed and changed a lot too. With a properly planned and though out installation of solar roof panels you can not only cut your electricity bills to mere pennies but you can actually put your electricity bill into negative figures so that it owes you money instead.
The bottom line is this. In the not too distant future you will see solar roof panels popping up all over the place. The advantages are just too great as compared to the aesthetic appeal. Cutting your electric bill by 80% or even eliminating it altogether starts making solar roof panels pretty good looking doesnt it? So say goodbye to Ugly and hello to savings. The bottom line is that the benefits of solar roof panels are just too great to pass up. You can even build your own for under $200 following the step-by-step guide and videos that I found. For you guys and gals with a tool box in the garage you can build them yourself.
