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.
Solar roof panels have the ability to not only reduce your electric bill but also increase the value of your home. Installing a solar roof can literally save you in excess of $100000 off of your energy bill during the lifetime of your mortgage. Compared to the $25000 - $50000 that you may spend on a professionally installed solar system this is a small price to pay. The investment made in your home also has the ability to pay off in the short run if you sell before you have paid off the system. Think about how many people will pay a premium for a hybrid car despite known that they will get significantly lower performance.
Not all solar panel systems are the same neither will they all provide the same service for every house. As the panels work best when receiving maximum exposure to the sun their installation will depend a great deal on the type of roof you have on your house which direction your roof faces and what if any obstacles are blocking the suns rays. The amount of electricity generated by your solar roof panels is directly related to how much sun they receive therefore having professionals install your solar panels will guarantee you get the best results for your money. Companies who work with solar panels are experts in their business and by examining your home or business situation they can calculate how your product will give optimum service and install it accordingly.
One of the first things you should consider is placement. Where will the solar roof panel receive the most amount of sunlight? Facing the panels south is the best choice for optimum energy. Never face them to the north. You should make sure that you check with your local building department before you install the panels. Some areas require you to have a special building permit. Make sure you tilt the solar roof panel in relation to the latitude in which you live. There is a rule of thumb to follow for efficiency. 0-15 degrees latitude: 15 degree tilt 15-25 degrees latitude: tilt degree = same as latitude degree 25-40 degrees latitude: tilt degree = latitude degree + 5 degrees 40+ degrees latitude: tilt degree = latitude degree + 20 degrees
