The Benefits of Solar Panels
When you install solar panels, you’re going to benefit in two major categories. First, you’ll be helping the environment. Second, you’ll be helping out your bank book.
Electricity bills can be pricey, but with solar installation, you can cut that cost down by half. And, should you choose to sell your home, you’ll get a great return on investment.
And, as for environmental factors, solar energy doesn’t produce harmful emissions. The process of getting solar energy is a clean and renewable one, that even helps reduce water pollution due to the lack of run-off.
Can my Home Support Solar Panels?
It is true that some homes are not readily able to support solar panels, However, with some changes it is possible to alter your situation.
Older homes with weaker roofs risk breaking if solar panels are installed on top. Of course, if your home needs re-roofing, it’s going to need it no matter what. Discuss your options with a roofing professional, and you’ll be able to install your solar panels in no time!
Being powered by the sun, if your panels aren’t seeing any, they’re not going to do much good. Solar power installation requires a sunny roof, not put in the shade by buildings or trees. While in some cases it’s possible to remove trees to make room for panels, but that kind of defeats the environmental purpose you’re aiming for.
At Greentek Construction Inc, we will never work on an installation until a full inspection has taken place.
