Solar power a smart choice for energy savings
Efficient Home, solar panels can take advantage of more energy than you need to power your home.
Some cities even offer solar repurchase programs where you can sell extra power on credit.
The upfront cost of solar panels is high, but will pay off in the long run.
I know it\'s unrealistic for everyone to switch today.
As more and more of us begin to adopt this technology, we should see solar panels becoming more affordable for everyday homeowners.
I would always argue for supporting solar (using wind and hydro), but the truth is that you have to do the right thing.
Now, you don\'t need to meet every requirement here, but it\'s important to know that you will get good value from solar panels.
The best place for solar panel installation is South
Sloping roof facing, 45-
Asphalt, usually made of asphalt or metal.
While you don\'t need to have this exact roof for many reasons, it\'s the best option for solar panels because it\'s too long --lasting.
With a metal roof, you can see a life span of 50 years.
Most solar panels have a life span of about 30 years (although some will have a longer life span), which means that in most cases you don\'t have to redo the roof while using the solar panels.
This makes it unnecessary for you to remove the paneled parts in order to run the new roof.
Even if solar panels are not on the budget today, make a smarter choice so you can add them in the future.
Replace the roof before adding the panel and work with authorized installers to resolve any potential issues.
Obstacles like pipe chimneys or chimneys can get in the way of you and take up the panel space you need.
Of course, in order for the solar panels to actually work, you need to have no obstacles on your roof.
If your roof is obscured and obscured by some big trees or adjacent buildings, you may need to look for a creative solution.
We added solar panels when we rebuilt my garage, but most solar projects are converted into existing structures, so don\'t think solar panels are newbuilds only.
We added 40 panels to my garage and when the sun shines on them they produce direct-current energy.
This flows into an inverter that converts power from DC to AC and inputs the controller to where to direct the energy.
The controller talks to the solar panel system, solar cells and my generator on the roof.
During the sunny day, the solar energy goes directly into my electrical panel and also charges the battery pack.
When there is no sun, my garage is powered by the battery it stores
If it is too low, the generator will start to power my electrical panel.
Your needs may not require a generator, better technology will always come up, and some of the batteries on the market are more powerful than the ones I installed a few years ago.
You may not have to bear the financial burden on your own.
Investigate rebates and programs provided by your province
You never know what it might cost to upgrade.
As I said, I believe solar energy is something we all need to work on.
Let\'s prepare for the next generation.
