Perhaps you’ve been thinking about converting your home energy to solar for some time now, or maybe you’ve never even considered the possibility. Regardless, Roofing101 offers up the many ways solar shingles can improve your world and the world around you.
Solar panels are photovoltaic cells that convert sunlight into electricity. They are made with semiconductive metals, including silicon and copper indium gallium selenide. The shingles also contain wires and have a light-sensitive waterproof coating to act as protection for your roof. When light hits the shingle, the coating knocks an electron off of the light particle, which enters the metal and gets stored. Stored electrons can then be used to generate currents and electricity.
Solar energy is a cost-efficient and eco-friendly way to provide power to your home.
Solar is an investment. With solar panels, you may see savings on your family’s energy costs. Additionally, there is a 26% federal tax credit that you may be eligible for when you purchase solar panels, so if you’re in the market for a new roof, going solar can help offset that cost! Similarly, you’ll start to lessen your carbon footprint right away. On average, you can potentially save $800 annually on your home energy costs.

Before you install your solar, you should have your roof assessed. If it needs to be replaced, doing so before installing the solar will lengthen the life of your roof. Solar panels are made of sturdier material than your roofing, which adds durability and protection. Panels can be installed in four to eight hours. Solar shingles are put in one after another and wired inside the building. It takes a certified professional to properly install this type of roofing.
