Solar Panels & Solar Shingles

Make your home more energy efficient with solar panels or solar shingles.

Energy Efficiency for your Home or Office

If you’re looking into a way of making your home or business more energy-efficient, you probably immediately think of solar panels. Although this is one of the more popular options for creating electricity independence, it’s not the only option. Today homes and businesses can also have solar shingles installed.

The Pros and Cons of Solar Panels and Solar Shingles

Solar shingles are a cutting-edge invention that at a glance looks just like normal asphalt shingles. They protect your home or business with their sturdiness. But if you go deeper, you’ll discover that these shingles are actually generating solar power. They will still hold up to the elements over many years, but they can also help your home or business gain electricity independence.

Many people choose solar shingles over solar panels because they are more aesthetically pleasing. They are also less of an investment than solar panels, especially if you already need to replace your roof. On the downside, solar shingles are usually not the most energy-efficient option.

Because the team at Southern Exposure Solar (SoExSo) has extensive roofing experience, we are able to install solar shingles. You can expect stunning craftsmanship from our roofing contractors!

Solar paneling is the most common renewable energy solution for good reason. Solar panels are incredibly powerful and able to produce a large amount of energy to fit your needs. Your home or business also doesn’t need to meet strict criteria, such as having a precise slope. If you’re in a location that has limited sun exposure, solar panels may be the best way to go.

As for longevity, both solutions should last for many years. You can usually expect to replace your roof or solar paneling every 20 to 30 years.
