Prices of solar roof panel systems vary according to the system you buy. Systems with higher levels of efficiency will obviously cost more. Retailers who sell this merchandise as well as manufacturers of the same can help you choose the appropriate system for the size and construction of your home or business as well as suggest the type of mounting that will suit you best. If you like to travel and spend a lot of time outdoors you may want to look into compact solar panel units that can be used during camping trips vacations day hikes etc. to power your cell phone laptop or other small appliance.
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
Solar roof panels are attached to your roof and sit about three or four inches above it on a light metal rail system. As a side benefit the panels protect your roof to some extent thereby extending its life and saving you money. The panels also serve to shade the roof in summer and they allow air to flow between the panels and the roof itself which in turn can mean that you need less air conditioning to cool your house again saving you money and also saving wear and tear on your air conditioning units. Solar roof panels also look attractive and these days they usually have a useful life of at least twenty-five years making them well worth considering as a wise investment on your home.
Thanks to the massive demand for clean renewable green energy at home it is actually possible for you and me to easily build solar roof panels right from the comfort of our own homes or workshops. All of the parts required for a solar panel kit are readily accessible from most good hardware stores and it is not an expensive or complicated project to undertake. However take note - DONT waste your time attempting to build your own home solar panels if you fall into either of these categories: You are plain lazy. You give up easily. You have no motivation.
