Is this really a roof made of solar panels? It's a beautiful color and really helps the roof stand out! It's good to know that there is a temperature tolerance level, especially for places where it gets too hot. http://www.lovelandroofingllc.com

Those panels are 'ribbon' PV's. They are flexible - you might have seen them on backpacks. They tend to have a bluish tint to them. They are also less expensive then crystalline PV panels. However, they also are less efficient, as mentioned above. They also come with an adhesive backing, are are sized to fit between standard standing seam metal roof seams.

Look for a solar pro who:Offers a strong warranty. Be sure the inverter is covered for at least 10 years and the panels are covered for 20 to 25 years.Uses panels made by a manufacturer based in the U.S. That way your warranty will still protect you if the manufacturer goes belly up.Doesn’t outsource installation. There will be more accountability if things don’t go according to plan.Is licensed and bonded, and no major complaints have been filed with the Better Business Bureau.Can supply at least two recent customer references.

Who to hire: Installing solar panels isn’t as simple as slapping cells on a rooftop. You’ll need to install additional wiring, and panel placement is key to building an efficient system. So this is one that’s best left for the pros. Explore modern solar home designs Look for a solar pro who: o Offers a strong warranty. Be sure the inverter is covered for at least 10 years and the panels are covered for 20 to 25 years. o Uses panels made by a manufacturer based in the U.S. That way your warranty will still protect you if the manufacturer goes belly up. o Doesn’t outsource installation. There will be more accountability if things don’t go according to plan. o Is licensed and bonded, and no major complaints have been filed with the Better Business Bureau. o Can supply at least two recent customer references.
