If you are interested in installing a photovoltaic system it is possible to do the work yourself and save some money but you may run into administrative issues with building permits and electrical hook up problems. Not having a professional do the installation could also compromise the warranty of the system or create difficulties with financing. If installing the system is something that you are prepared to undertake do your research and make sure you know what you are doing. If you decide to go the professional route interview contractors and check references. This is a new business and you want an expert that has as much knowledge as possible. Doing your part to clean up the environment is an admirable thing to do and installing a solar roof system is a fabulous way to make a big difference.
Not all solar panel systems are the same neither will they all provide the same service for every house. As the panels work best when receiving maximum exposure to the sun their installation will depend a great deal on the type of roof you have on your house which direction your roof faces and what if any obstacles are blocking the suns rays. The amount of electricity generated by your solar roof panels is directly related to how much sun they receive therefore having professionals install your solar panels will guarantee you get the best results for your money. Companies who work with solar panels are experts in their business and by examining your home or business situation they can calculate how your product will give optimum service and install it accordingly.
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.
