If you are like the millions of American homeowners who are asking themselves whether they should install solar panels for their homes (or their RVs) in 2019, there are several components you may want to consider, including the amount of roof space you have, how you use power, and what your local utility charges you for electricity.
There are a variety of factors to determine how suitable your roof is for solar panels, including its size, direction, pitch, and the level of shade. Our solar panel layout tool allows you to draw solar panels on your roof to see the arrangement, how many can fit, and the amount of electricity they will generate.
Not only do solar panels increase the value of your home, they have become much less expensive over the years, as well, with a drop in price around 80% over the last 10 years and a further 4% in 2018. Homeowners are also able to take advantage of programs such as the 30 percent federal investment tax credit (ITC) that make the installation of residential solar systems even more affordable.
