Advanced solar technology is able to produce solar cells that can produce 20% efficiency as compared to 7-10% produced by older cells. This development has led to an improvement in the economics of solar energy and makes investment in a solar roof panel more viable than the previous systems. These panels are a perfect way of cutting energy costs reducing carbon emissions and becoming more self-sufficient. With the use of this new technology the roof of your home can provide you not only protection but it can also turn into an important source of electrical power. By making use of sunlight that falls on your homes roof you can power all your electrical gadgets without the need to pay hefty electricity bills. So take a step today and do not let the sunlight falling on your roof go waste any more.
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.
In fact having a solar roof panel can even cause your meter to spin backwards. This means that the utility companies have to pay you. The amount that you are paid is equal to the same rate at which they charge for energy. This could eliminate your utility bill completely. If one of the reasons you are looking to switch to renewable energy is because you are concerned about the environment. You will be happy to know that by generating electricity from a solar roof panel you will help reduce greenhouse gas emission. You may not think that your solar roof panel system on your single house makes that much of a difference but you may be wrong. A simple 3kW solar system reduces carbon dioxide emissions very close to the amount of carbon dioxide emissions given off by a passenger car traveling 8000 miles per year.
