Whether you’re tired of spending your hard-earned money on energy bills, want to be more eco-friendly, or both, solar roofing may be the answer! With quick installation and tough durability, solar roofing can be a fast way to start saving.
Pennsylvania offers tax credits, solar renewable energy certificates (SREC), and net metering to homeowners purchasing solar energy systems. The Residential Clean Energy Credit for residential systems can reduce the cost of a system by 30 percent. SRECs allow residents to sell the energy from their solar energy systems. In addition to these incentives, Pennsylvania also offers net metering. Net metering allows homeowners to bank their solar energy when they have excess and use it later when production is low.
Solar Roofing provides an alternative to mainstream energy sources. Solar energy allows homeowners to control their energy prices. Traditional energy source prices are subject to change at any time. However, by producing your own energy, you control your energy prices.
Another economic benefit of solar roofing is the opportunity to sell unused energy back to the grid. If your family is not using the entirety of the energy produced by your solar roof, it can be used to create a profit. Not only are you saving on energy costs, but you could potentially be making money!
Solar energy is a renewable energy source that aids in reducing greenhouse gases. Traditional energy sources produce CO2 gas. Over 40% of CO2 emissions are due to burning fossil fuels for electricity generation. Using renewable energy sources cuts down on the emission of CO2 gas which contributes to global warming and the thinning of the ozone layer.
Solar shingles are less bulky and heavy than traditional solar panels and offer a sleeker option for solar energy in your home. These nailable shingles blend into your roof’s design, allowing for a seamless transition from where traditional shingles fill in.
