The ideal cool roof customer will be in a hot climate. Keep in mind that cooler areas may see reduced heat gains, which can raise heating costs. While the roof may be more susceptible to alge or mold growth in warmer climates, special coatings can prevent this for a few years. In colder climates, the technology can encourage condensation and moisture buildup.
A cool roof is designed to reflect sunlight and absorb less heat. They are an energy-efficient solution that uses reflective tiles, sheet coverings, or paint to reduce heat intake. Normal and dark roofs can reach high temperatures of over 150 degrees. Cool roofs reduce this amount by over 50 degrees, helping to conserve energy and reduce utility costs. Energy-efficient roofing can be easily identified by the Solar Reflective Index or SRI. This measures the material’s ability to absorb sunlight through reflection.
Photovoltaic (PV) systems are composed of various components. They include PV modules, one or more batteries, a controller for stand-alone systems or a charge regulator for electrical systems, an inverter for systems connected to the utility grid, wiring, and mounting hardware.
All panels are made in the USA. We use only top tier solar panels for our installations.
The purpose of an inverter is to invert the direct current output and turn it into an alternating current. Alternating currents are used in all commercial appliances, which is why solar panel systems are so popular today. The solar inverter helps provide your home with the power it needs.
There are various inverters available to accommodate your needs ranging from micro-inverters, central inverters and string inverters.
Harvest the Sun for Your Energy Needs and Save!
The average California family will save nearly $30,000 over 20 years by using solar energy.
