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
The bottom line is this. In the not too distant future you will see solar roof panels popping up all over the place. The advantages are just too great as compared to the aesthetic appeal. Cutting your electric bill by 80% or even eliminating it altogether starts making solar roof panels pretty good looking doesnt it? So say goodbye to Ugly and hello to savings. The bottom line is that the benefits of solar roof panels are just too great to pass up. You can even build your own for under $200 following the step-by-step guide and videos that I found. For you guys and gals with a tool box in the garage you can build them yourself.
There are options though. They actually make solar shingles that look like shingles. You can also install your panels on a part of your roof thats not in eye site of the street provided of course that side of your house gets direct sun light. You can also make a solar panel rack system that sits in your yard. Ive seen some pretty elaborate systems that actually follow the sun for maximum efficiency. You could also install them on another building if you have one.
There are lots of good deals available now for those considering installing solar roof panels. Never has it been more affordable to install panels and there are some excellent opportunities around if you do a bit of research that dont have to be outside the budget of most people. Due to the introduction of the feed in tariff (FIT) people installing solar panels can now make money from the energy that they generate. As well as getting a subsidy for the solar energy you use yourself you can also sell back your excess power back to the national grid. Because the FIT lasts for 25 years you should be able to pay off your solar panels and make some extra money on them during their lifetime.
