Alexandrin Boulanger Roof Panel April 29th, 2018 - 18:05:36
There are lots of good deals available now for those considering installing solar roof panels. Never has it been more affordable to install panels and there are some excellent opportunities around if you do a bit of research that dont have to be outside the budget of most people. Due to the introduction of the feed in tariff (FIT) people installing solar panels can now make money from the energy that they generate. As well as getting a subsidy for the solar energy you use yourself you can also sell back your excess power back to the national grid. Because the FIT lasts for 25 years you should be able to pay off your solar panels and make some extra money on them during their lifetime.
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.
Increased House Price - A house installed with full working house solar panels is worth more than one that isnt. I know which I would be more interested in if I were looking to purchase a house and many agents now are recognizing this and rewarding sellers who have made the effort. Tax Rebates - Not too many people know this but in many states in the US and even some European countries you will qualify for a tax cut or rebate if you have solar roof panels installed on your property. Its cash back in your pocket. Important- Do not ignore these points as they are all great money making incentives which you should consider when looking at solar roof panels for your home.
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.
