Why consider Solar?
Going solar does not just mean having reliable and long-lasting CLEAN energy, it also means you own your energy production. This means you will be unaffected by energy rate inflation, giving YOU control over your energy bill!
Solar installations also increase the value of your home. Even better, solar systems are exempt from property tax which means installing a solar system will not increase your tax liability.
Currently, one of the best ways to get your solar panels is to take advantage of the 26% Federal Tax Credit. By taking advantage of this investment tax credit, you can get 26% of the total cost of your solar panels back in tax credits, including the cost of installation! However, this tax credit will not last forever so the sooner you act, the better. Many energy companies offer rebates in addition to the tax credit!
Why is roofing experience important for solar installation?
75% of roofs in the US are made of asphalt shingles, and the average lifespan of an asphalt shingle roof is 15-20 years. The average life of a solar system is 25-30 years. In many instances, a roof needs replacing in order for the solar system to be installed!
While a solar system can be installed without damaging the existing roof, it's incredibly important that a roofing expert is overseeing the process from start to finish. A professional roofing company like Royal Contracting Solutions can spot any red flag during the site inspection, as well as quickly address any issues that may come up with the roof during the solar installation.
