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.

In the early days of solar roof panels the hope was that one or two panels would help to lower the electricity bill a bit. To be honest sometimes it seemed more of a gimmick than a real cost savings. Things have changed and changed a lot too. With a properly planned and though out installation of solar roof panels you can not only cut your electricity bills to mere pennies but you can actually put your electricity bill into negative figures so that it owes you money instead.
The alternative home energy market has been exceptionally busy just recently particularly in the home solar panels sector. Making your own solar roof panels has certainly been at the forefront of this but have you ever actually considered the implications to building your own home solar panels? Just think about that for a short while - can you really build and install your very own home solar power panels? Most people would assume you need a professional team of installers to visit your home and do the job for you but this is no longer the case.
