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.
It takes some time and experience to get familiar with using these panels. But the pain must be overcome as discerning buyers will soon start clamoring for the benefits and cost saving that comes from a green effective roofing solution. It is very often the case that all of the talk about house solar panels is purely about the environmental benefits and going green at home. Rarely do we hear about the financial benefits of installing solar roof panels.
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
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.
