You’ll undoubtedly agree that, for better or worse, we get a lot of sunshine here in Arizona. For that reason, some homeowners have decided to take advantage of it by installing photovoltaic panels, or, as they’re more commonly known, solar panels. If you’re thinking of buying a home that uses solar energy, or if you’re a homeowner who’s thinking of having solar panels installed, there are plenty of things to keep in mind.
It’s true that the initial cost of installing solar panels may be quite high. However, there are ways to mitigate that cost. For example, there are government credits that can cover a large portion of the cost. Additionally, utility companies are required to give a credit for energy that’s returned to the grid. Above all, it’s important to have solar panels properly installed, since the roof can be the source of a lot of different issues, and solar panels are typically installed up there.
