Multiple Great Options

When it comes to solar solutions, there are many, many options. If you’re seeking solar panel installation, we’ll work with you to find the right panels for your building or home. 

SPG Roofing & Exteriors is also a Tesla Certified Installer of their Solar Roof, Powerwall and Powerwall+ systems, and we partner with Jefferson Electric for top-notch installs. These solutions each offer their benefits. Ultimately, the choice will come down to the look you want, the price point you want, and what you’re looking to get out of your solar-powered home or business.

How Do Solar Panels Work?

Solar panels consist of photovoltaic cells, absorbing solar radiation as the sun hits them directly. Electric charges are created with the energy from the sun, which then move to the cell’s electrical field and direct the flow of the electrical energy. Solar panels can also store the energy for use later when the sun is no longer up. In addition, certain parts of solar panels can convert the energy to alternating current for use in homes. 

Solar panels harness solar energy to power homes or businesses. While we offer many solar panel solutions, Tesla’s solar panels, specifically, are low-profile, durable, and quietly convert energy as the panels are secured close to your roof and each other. As a residential and commercial solution for clients, panels can offset energy use nearly 100%, offering a way to future proof their expense, usage, and budget. Solar panels are ideal for roof space or fields for panel placement clients.  

Solar power from panels installed by SPG Roofing & Exteriors can also be stored–a feature not all solar providers offer. This applies to Tesla’s solar panels, as well. Powerwall is Tesla’s home battery backup system. This battery backup allows for maximum storage of solar energy for use at any time, whether it’s needed at night or during a power outage. The battery is compact, so you don’t have to worry about its attraction of too much energy, adding to the sleek design of the solar panels.

What Is a Tesla Solar Roof?

A solar roof is comprised of solar shingles or solar roof tiles. Solar shingles are similar in size to traditional roof shingles. These shingles are made of thin photovoltaic cells in the form of sheets. These sheets can overlay existing shingles on the roof or replace the current shingles entirely. The PV sheets absorb sunlight and convert it to electricity, just as solar panels do. 

Just as traditional shingles offer a layer of protection for your home or business, a Solar Roof protects the structure from outdoor elements, such as rain, snow, and wind. Solar shingles are durable and engineered to protect against all weather. The seamless design of a Solar Roof offers a simple and natural aesthetic. Solar Roofs also allow for energy storage to be used later, offering 24/7 energy security as each Solar Roof purchase is bundled with a Powerwall, the compact battery that stores energy.  

Tesla Solar Roofs can be combined with Tesla Solar Inverter to get the most energy possible. This integrated system allows energy to be produced on the roofs with the most complicated angles or with low sunlight hitting the sheets. 

Evaluating A Solar Solution

There are many benefits to installing a solar solution at your home or business. The main benefit, which receives the most attention, is the lower energy bills. Not only do solar solutions save energy, but the money normally sent to energy companies every month now serves as an equity-builder instead. 

With your energy source for your home or business, you are no longer dependent on local electricity companies, such as AES Indiana (formerly known as IPL, Indiana Power & Light) and Duke Energy. This is especially beneficial when there is a power outage. You no longer need to depend on the outside source of an electricity company to get your power up and running again. 

Solar solutions are just as resilient to hard weather as any other type of roofing. Whether you choose a solar roof or solar panels, each is as durable as the next. Winters in Indiana can be brutal, but you don’t need to worry about any unexpected issues. However, solar solutions need to be properly maintained, just as any other roof needs to keep its top shape. 

Adding a solar solution to your home can also increase your home’s value. Solar panels or a solar roof may directly increase your home equity. Still, the money you save on energy can be immediately diverted to other projects or improvements to the home, which can also indirectly increase the value of your home.

The state of Indiana also offers several financial incentives for installing solar panels or a solar roof. Some laws specifically help Indiana residents go solar, such as net metering and solar easement laws. There are also tax benefits, such as the renewable energy property tax exemption, the Indiana sales tax exemption, and the federal solar tax credit. Government tax breaks can partially subsidize solar solutions.

Solar solutions are also beneficial to the environment. They not only combat greenhouse gas emissions and reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, but they also improve public health as it is a renewable resource. Solar panels and roofs offer a clean energy source, which helps the environment.
