Are Solar Panels A Good Option?
Solar energy in the United State is booming.
According to the International Renewable Energy Agency, employment in the solar industry increased 24.5% between 2015 and 2016. Adding solar panels to your roof can save you a lot of money on energy costs and it solar energy is very environmentally-friendly. These are two reasons why there has been such an increase in popularity. However, not all roofs are viable for solar panels. So, how can you know whether or not solar panels are a good option for you?
The most important factor when deciding if solar panels are right for you is whether or not your roof is unobstructed. If there are other buildings or large trees that block the sun from reaching your roof, solar panels will not be of much use to you. Roofing contractors are able to determine this by observing your roof, calculating solar exposure, roof pitch, and azimuth.
Sometimes roofers can determine if solar panels are right for your roof through the use of technology, such as satellite imaging. However, getting to know the small details of the property will probably require a visit.
