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.
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.
Without the need for gas or electricity to heat the water the company saves more money every month which adds to its bottom line. For residential use on the other hand the typical layout is for everyday hot water usage. This can include taking a hot shower or bath using hot water to clean hands and dishes or for food preparation with a dishwasher and also with a washer and dryer. For some homes including that of apartments they too can use forced-water heating systems to keep themselves toasty during the cold winter months. Either way using solar roof panels will in the long term save the users money and for some even make money in the end.
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.
