Youve probably heard a lot about PV panels recently and all the benefits that they come with and if you decide to install them on your roof then it could well prove to be a very wise investment. Here are a few of the reasons why.
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
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. The most common sizes used by households are 4 by 8 foot or 4 by 4 foot.
Energy bills seem to be rising all the time at the moment but when you install solar roof panels you will benefit from completely free solar energy from the sun. You never have to worry about rising electricity bills again and this can also help you to budget more effectively. If you care about the planet then solar roof panels are a great way to make a difference. We all need to start being more careful with the energy that we use to help reduce our carbon footprints and limit the effects of global warming. By generating your own energy via solar power you can help to do your part to reduce the amount of CO2 being released into the atmosphere.
