Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX and Tesla Motors, and co-chairman of SolarCity, is turning his entrepreneurial attention to the solar panel industry.
According to Fortune, roofing is increasingly available already integrated with solar panels. Homes that use solar panels can actually save an average of $84 per month on electricity expenses. Experienced general contractors can install these solar-powered roofs to your home and can also offer experienced roof repair. Not dealing with residential property? Contact commercial roofers who offer commercial construction services.
“It’s a solar roof, as opposed to a module on a roof,” said Musk. “It’s not a thing on a roof, it’s the roof. It’s something that will be a standout.”
Every year in the U.S., there are more than five million new roofs purchased. Solar roofing is gaining popularity over the last few years because of their environmental benefits, simple design and look, and simply because they save people money on their electricity bills.
Solar energy is great not only because it’s sustainable, but it’s also renewable. Creating solar energy only requires a little bit of effort and maintenance once the solar panels are installed on your roof. Aside from saving plenty of cash of energy bills, there are a few other benefits of having a solar-powered home.
