3 Myths About Residential Solar Panels

3 Myths About Residential Solar Panels

Homeowners are attracted to the benefits that a solar electric system provides. But there are a few myths circling that keep some homeowners from moving forward with having a solar system installed at their home. Is there any truth to these concerns? Here are three reasons why people worry about having solar panels installed:

1. Solar Costs Too Much

Years ago, solar panels were a relatively expensive alternative power option. However, solar tax credits and financing programs have made it much more affordable to purchase solar. The cost is further offset when the system is correctly installed and optimized to harvest maximum solar energy.

2. Solar Panels Can Damage Your Roof

Skilled solar installation professionals are experts at installing panels on a variety of roofs. Mounting materials and solar racking have continued to improve throughout the years, almost eliminating concerns of damage. Whether your roof is covered in asphalt shingles, clay or concrete tile, there is an installation solution. If you are planning to have a solar system installed at your home, be sure to hire a knowledgeable and experienced solar installation team.

3. It Will Be Hard To Sell My Home

There are many home buyers that like the idea of having solar. It is attractive to some buyers to purchase a home with no electric bill.  If the electricity produced by the solar system covers the homes electrical needs and the seller owns the solar system, they may have an easier time selling their home.  If the solar system is leased, the buyers may have to qualify to assume the lease before the house is sold and may not qualify. This situation could cause a problem with the sale of the home.
