As for residents they too are beginning to look into using solar panels for their electricity. Although home panels come with a hefty installation fee with the tax incentives the savings per month on not having to rely so heavily on the power companies and the knowledge that the residents are helping out the environment are all great reasons for getting the PV Solar panels. The other type of roof panels are those known as solar thermal collectors. The panel is made up of a series of pipes that are sandwiched between absorption panels typically made of black glass. The pipes are filled with purified water every morning and refilled as the need increases.
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.
Allow a few inches between the solar roof panel and and the actual surface of your roof. This allows the system to breathe and results in better performance. One last word of advice would be to install your system in groups rather than individual panels. This makes your job so much easier. Solar roof panels may start out in your minds eye as pure ugly. The main reason for that though is that we just plain and simple dont accept change very easily. Were all used to looking at a shingled roof. Were just not yet used to seeing panels on roof tops. I know exactly how you feel. I felt the same way until I started weighing out the benefits.
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.
