We've been looking at adding Solar Panels to our house, as soon as the HOA changes the rules that prevent them. Florida has a loan assistance program and your state may as well. But how to you know if your roof is a good candidate for Solar Panels.
Then you can estimate the cost, power return, and time to payback on Roof Ray. Using Google Maps to show your house's roof and its southern exposure, Roof Ray makes that calculation simple as pie.
I'll let you know what our HOA says. They've been looking at loosening the regulations for what sort of solar panels you can have. Currently it's only solar water heaters.
