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.
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.
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.
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
