Should We Install Solar Panels in Our Roof? - Part 2 - Science 38




Image 1- Solar panels on the roof.

Much research showed that housing value could increase by up to 20 times if we have a 5 kW solar system on our roof.

In term of dollar, solar panels could make housing value up to US$ 24,000 in the market. Quite good for investment.

It is estimated that 20 solar panels need roof space of 5 hundreds square feet, then, it would produce 5,000 watts.

However, in Louisiana, let’s say we pay US$ 150 per month for electric bill, we might need solar panels system to produce 9500 watts.

Interestingly, the solar system may last for 25 years. We avoid rising cost of electricity for so long, hence, save thousands of dollars.

  5. Deberíamos instalar paneles solares en nuestro tejado?... La pregunta es muy significativa y en aras de los avances científicos, que conllevan un ahorro energético y evitan la contaminación del medio ambiente. Sin lugar a dudas debiéramos acogernos a ello, pero sin subvenciones la instalación resulta costosa.
    Un fuerte abrazo

  6. In order to comply with regulations, new houses are required to have solar panels installed on their roofs. It seems like panel installations are happening at a faster pace everywhere.
    I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
