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.
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
Allow a few inches between the solar roof panel and and the actual surface of your roof. This allows the system to breathe and results in better performance. One last word of advice would be to install your system in groups rather than individual panels. This makes your job so much easier. Solar roof panels may start out in your minds eye as pure ugly. The main reason for that though is that we just plain and simple dont accept change very easily. Were all used to looking at a shingled roof. Were just not yet used to seeing panels on roof tops. I know exactly how you feel. I felt the same way until I started weighing out the benefits.
Newer solar technology has produced solar cells which can produce up to twenty percent efficiency a vast improvement of the seven to ten percent produced by the older solar cells. This improvement has improved the economics of solar power and makes the investment of a solar roof a more viable choice than previous systems. Using new technology your homes roof can provide not only protection from the elements it can be a valuable source of electricity. Make use of the sunlight falling on the roof which now goes to waste by using it to power all those electrical gadgets so necessary to modern life.
