Solar roof panels are popular and often seen attached on rooftops all over the country usually on a south facing roof to catch the maximum amount of sunshine possible. Solar panels contrary to popular belief do not require sunshine to operate. All they require is light so while a nice sunny day will provide the maximum amount of light a dull cloudy day will still provide enough light for solar roof panels to operate efficiently. This makes them very attractive for while installation costs can be relatively high after that they are almost cost free to run and use.
In fact having a solar roof panel can even cause your meter to spin backwards. This means that the utility companies have to pay you. The amount that you are paid is equal to the same rate at which they charge for energy. This could eliminate your utility bill completely. If one of the reasons you are looking to switch to renewable energy is because you are concerned about the environment. You will be happy to know that by generating electricity from a solar roof panel you will help reduce greenhouse gas emission. You may not think that your solar roof panel system on your single house makes that much of a difference but you may be wrong. A simple 3kW solar system reduces carbon dioxide emissions very close to the amount of carbon dioxide emissions given off by a passenger car traveling 8000 miles per year.
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
FACT - No free report or tacky 2 minute YouTube video presentation will ever teach you how to successfully make your own solar roof panel at home. The reality is however is that it is quite possible for you to learn how to successfully build and install a solar panel provided you take the time to arm yourself with the right information. By this I am talking about detailed step by step instructions with well constructed video guides which would be designed to walk anyone through the entire process of building and installing a solar roof panel at home.
