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
It takes some time and experience to get familiar with using these panels. But the pain must be overcome as discerning buyers will soon start clamoring for the benefits and cost saving that comes from a green effective roofing solution. It is very often the case that all of the talk about house solar panels is purely about the environmental benefits and going green at home. Rarely do we hear about the financial benefits of installing solar roof panels.
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.
Some of them are designed in such a way that they can be installed right on the existing roof thus eliminating the requirement of first removing the old roof. Some of the manufacturers also have a simplified installation process which only require the system to plug and play. The electrical connection between the panels is free of any tools and only needs to be connected with each other through handy plugs. The different kinds of solar roof panels are the traditional types advanced types and compact types while the best ones are light weight panels which are less expensive smaller in size and still capture sufficient amount of energy every day.
