These days many property owners are choosing to “go green”, and for good reason! Not only does solar power provide a clean energy source, but it can also save money. Many of your clients have probably heard about the federal solar tax credit, also known as the Investment Tax Credit (ITC). The Federal ITC makes solar more affordable for homeowners and businesses by granting a dollar-for-dollar tax deduction equal to 30% of the total cost of a solar energy system.
With solar roofs being one of the most recent forms of new energy innovation, there are still a lot of questions out there from homeowners searching for information about bringing this technology into their lives. As you answer the questions your roofing clients may have about the difference between solar panels and solar shingles (or tiles), we recommend you provide this helpful Solar Roofing Guide as a supplement.
