The likelihood of roof damage from solar panels is low. Roof damage might happen if panels are installed incorrectly. If the roof is already damaged, then the weight of the panels can make matters worse. No need to worry, though. We always do a roof inspection to ensure your roof is safe for an install.
Rest assured that we can help with roof repairs and house alterations necessary for your solar installation. The cost of these alterations gets added to the overall installation cost.
No, you will not run out of energy. In New York, solar-powered systems are set up with Net Metering. This means that the energy taken by your solar system gets put into your electric grid, and your utility distributes it to you as you need it. If you need more energy than your solar supply, your utility will then provide traditional electricity. For more on net metering, click here.
The preferred fate of used solar panels is that they are recycled. Some countries such as Australia, Japan, India, and parts of Europe have set up or are in the process of setting up legal requirements or incentives for recycling solar panels.
