Solar panels against a blue sky.

As more and more people are switching to solar energy, you might be curious to know if going solar –particularly having a solar integrated roof –is really worth it. To help you decide, our expert roofing contractors in DC are here to share some information about the benefits of going solar and reasons you should choose solar integrated roofing.

Although some property owners still chose to be connected to the conventional utility grid as a back-up source of energy, many are relying on their solar panels for majority of their energy needs at home. Listed below are some of the reasons many homeowners are going solar and installing solar integrated roofs:

  • Homeowners won’t lose space in their yards as the panels are installed on the roof.
  • When placed correctly, the solar panels won't affect your home's curb appeal. You won't have to worry about your panels becoming eyesores.
  • A solar integrated roof keeps the equipment out of sight, which is a major requirement for many homeowners associations.
  • Installing solar panels makes your home energy-efficient, which is a great help for the environment.
  • You can save money and cut down on your energy bill because the panels are feeding off energy from the sun and not from a local energy service provider.
  • You may qualify for a Federal tax credit.
