The need to reduce our reliance on non-renewable fossil fuels and replace it with a focus on cleaner, renewable energy sources has been drummed into us for how long? Solar, geo-thermal, and other alternatives were examined in the past, but in most cases, they were either prohibitively expensive or unappealing from a purely aesthetic standpoint! One of the firms launched by Elon Musk a few years ago invented and introduced, changeable solar roof tiles, rather than, using units that sit on the standard roof. He addressed the issue of cost by selling these tiles at the same price as regular roofing. A solar roof may or may not make sense for an individual, depending on their personal circumstances. This post will aim to briefly, investigate, examine, review, and discuss, these four main aspects.

To begin, assess the whole expense of making the switch to a different look. Aside from the cost of constructing and connecting these to the electric grid, there may also be additional taxes levied by governments in some cases.

Is it necessary to replace the current roof? What’s the age of your current roof? What’s the current state of it? Installing a solar roof is obviously more cost-effective if you’re going to have to install a new roof. Exist in your area/region, installers or experts who are appropriately trained and qualified to set up this latest solution?

In order to get the most out of your investment, traditional solar panels require a southern exposure! The new tiles cover the entire area, but it’s important to consider whether or not there is enough natural light to make this method logical! Check to see if this style’s aesthetics and cosmetics match your home’s maximum attractiveness!

Issues with solar panels in local zoning laws and regulations: While some towns place limitations on solar panels, few have done so comprehensively. This method is relevant, responsive, and sustainable from a long-term financial and economic standpoint, as well as a renewable energy point of view.

In the aftermath of Hurricane Irma in Puerto Rico, a few years ago, Musk’s business brought in similar techniques and swiftly and effectively/efficiently got some of the island’s hospitals and schools up and running. For the sake of our planet, we must begin to plan for the future and be more environmentally conscious.
