Solar Panel Shingles

Solar Panel Shingles

If you’re building a new home or if you are replacing the roof on your house you might want to consider using solar panel shingles for your roof. Solar panel shingles are cutting edge technology that only recently hit the consumer market.

Solar panel shingles are the same size as traditional asphalt shingles but they are actually small PV solar cells. They fit together like traditional roof shingles.

You can also use a combination of solar panel shingles and traditional shingles if you can’t afford to do your entire roof in solar panel shingles although you won’t get a very high return electricity rate if you use just a few solar panel shingles.

Solar panel shingles are weather-resistant and function just like normal shingles except that they also can provide clean, environmentally safe and free solar energy to power and heat your home.

Using an entire rooftop of solar panel shingles is usually more than enough energy to power your home except for some exceptionally large appliances like a washer and dryer.

  • Solar panel shingles aren’t cheap, but they can help you save money on energy costs over time. Here are some of the other benefits of using solar panel shingles to power your home:
  •  Solar shingles are easy to integrate with existing roof structures and shingles
  • Solar shingles fit into any design style
  • Solar shingles can decrease your electricity bill significantly, sometimes by more than half
  • Solar shingles are environmentally friendly
  • There are lots of state and Federal Green Building financial incentives to use solar shingles
  • Solar shingles will increase the resale value of your home
  • Solar shingles are a smart long term investment in your home equity
  • Solar shingles are easy to install
  • Solar shingles have at least a 20-year output meaning you won’t have to roof your home again for probably 20 years.
