They then think they are ready to go and begin their solar panel building project. This will be doomed to failure - dont do it. You fall at the first hurdle and end up quitting the job. This is not rocket science and anyone can do it provided you prepare yourself correctly and do not rush or try to cut corners. Making your own Solar Roof Panel is actually great fun and you will find it an enjoyable and rewarding experience. You will also benefit from saving thousands of dollars on your energy bill and you be putting all of that money back where it belongs - in your pocket.
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.
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
When the sun hits the glass it heats the glass up quickly yet evenly which in turn heats the water. Once heated to proper temperature the water is released and pumped to the desired location(s) for it to be used. In an office setting this would likely be to sinks for washing hands or dishes in a cafeteria or for vending machines that make coffee and other hot drinks. Another business that uses these panels for hot water is laundromats which can then pass on a savings to their customers. Finally businesses often will use a forced-water heating system to keep the building at the right temperature throughout the year.
