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.
How would you like to have a roof which pulls double duty? The roof of your home can do much more than keep the rain and snow out of your house. It can also provide electrical energy for your home by supporting solar roof panels or solar shingles. Solar technology has advanced producing lighter weight more efficient solar cells which make solar roof panels and solar shingles a more feasible choice. The solar cells in the panels or shingles convert the sun light which shines on your roof into solar power which can then be put to use providing electricity for your home.
As for residents they too are beginning to look into using solar panels for their electricity. Although home panels come with a hefty installation fee with the tax incentives the savings per month on not having to rely so heavily on the power companies and the knowledge that the residents are helping out the environment are all great reasons for getting the PV Solar panels. The other type of roof panels are those known as solar thermal collectors. The panel is made up of a series of pipes that are sandwiched between absorption panels typically made of black glass. The pipes are filled with purified water every morning and refilled as the need increases.
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
