Why Install Rooftop Solar Panels?
One of the ways you can save energy in your business or home is through rooftop solar panels. Rooftop solar panel installation simply means installing solar panels on the roof of your business or home. While there are also different types of solar panels, we use Solar Photovoltaic Systems. This is one of the most common types of solar energy system that most homeowners and commercial business use. And there’s a good reason behind that. Not only is this solar energy system renewable energy-green, non-polluting, and universal, but it also is very cost effective. With a Solar Photovoltaic system, electricity is produced straight from the sun!
Photovoltaic rooftop solar panels can allow you to reduce your electricity bill by 40% – 80%, based on the size of the system and your typical electricity use. Theses systems are extremely beneficial for rooftop installations as they don’t take up too much space. So even if you have a modest rooftop size, you can benefit from solar photovoltaic systems to generate the maximum amount of energy.
Advantages of Installing Rooftop Solar Panels
When thinking about rooftop installation of solar energy panels, it is easy to forget that not only are you able to generate electricity, but can also heat your water! With the addition of solar thermal devices, you are able generate solar- energy water which allows solar panels to be a beneficial energy source. This adds to the cost effectiveness of solar panels as you are using free energy generated from the sun.
As technology gets more advanced each day, solar energy systems are becoming more affordable. Along with that, there are also local and federal reward programs for both business and homeowners that use solar energy. You can get solar tax credits and incentives, just for using solar energy!
Rooftop installation of solar energy panels are more affordable than ground mount installation. It has lower labor installation costs, and requires less materials. It also is easier to get permits for.
Besides that, it also takes up almost no space of your home or business as it is placed on the roof. This is ideal for business that do not have extra space for ground mounting. Business will be able to keep the space they have outside to be used by the customers for additional seating or parking area. And it won’t affect your curb appeal!
It also is helpful for homes and residential areas that do not want to give up their yard or entertainment space. Rooftop Solar Panel Installation, allows homeowners to make use of all of their yard for whatever they desire. They can continue having family gatherings and even using the power from the panels to generate outside lighting. Or they can continue using their yard for storing their valuables. With rooftop installation, homeowners don’t have to worry about children or pets getting too close to the panels and damaging them. The solar panels are also not in the most visible area either so they don’t have to worry about panels taking away from the home or yard’s beauty.
Rooftop Installation for Insulation
Another advantage that tends to be looked over is that rooftop solar panels provides the home or business with added insulation. It is a guarantee that it will get hot having so many sunny days throughout the year. With the panels being on the roof, the sunlight is drawn to the panels. This allows the business or home to be cooler during the day time. Therefore, the cooling costs will go down. There’s no need to turn the A/C down during the midday sun to keep you from feeling uncomfortably hot!
As we go through the seasons, the roof installation protects the home from weather related elements that can harm the roof throughout the years. Being on the roof, the panels will be able to protect against UV light, harsh winds, hail, and rainfall.
It goes without saying that rooftop installation of solar energy panels is beneficial for the environment. Since solar panels generate their energy directly through the sun, there are no carbon emission disadvantages! Carbon emissions are used by many utilities to produce electricity and is harmful for the environment. You can rest assured that you played your part in protecting the planet!
