Newer solar technology has produced solar cells which can produce up to twenty percent efficiency a vast improvement of the seven to ten percent produced by the older solar cells. This improvement has improved the economics of solar power and makes the investment of a solar roof a more viable choice than previous systems. Using new technology your homes roof can provide not only protection from the elements it can be a valuable source of electricity. Make use of the sunlight falling on the roof which now goes to waste by using it to power all those electrical gadgets so necessary to modern life.
Also with a solar roof panel you can think long term. Photovoltaic cells which are used to capture the power of the sun in a solar panel are very reliable. They were originally designed for use in space. Almost all of the satellites that orbit the earth are powered by solar energy. This is because they work for long periods of time up to 40 years with little or no maintenance required. As a special benefit a solar roof panel system is eligible for a $2000 federal tax credit. If you happen to live in California the California Solar Initiative (CSI) offers an up-front rebate. Most of the time this covers 20-30% of the final cost.
If I was to ask you what solar roof panels are youd most likely say the large sheets of glass and silicon used to collect and store energy for the home. Well youd be half right. There is one other type of solar roof panel and that is a solar thermal panel which is used to heat water in both residential and commercial buildings. To start with the first type of solar panels let us talk about their usage and why businesses and residents may want to look into having them. The solar roof panels also known as photovoltaic panels work to create energy by separating the positive neutrons from the negative ones.
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.
