Benefits of Residential Solar Energy

Your roof does more than keep the rain out. It prevents enormous amounts of solar radiation—heat energy—from entering your Placerville home. Your roof can work harder, though, by taking that free sunlight and turning it into electricity or hot water. Straight Line Roofing, your Sacramento roofing contractor, is uniquely positioned to provide all these benefits of solar energy:

  • Lower Your Energy Bill
  • Increase Energy Efficiency
  • Increase Your Placerville Property Value
  • Provide Tax Incentives, Lowering Qverall Costs

As a GAF Solar Elite Contractor, Straight Line Roofing has the installation experience to provide you with exactly the type of solar energy you want. You are not limited to an average of 25 years of free electricity from sunlight, though that is an excellent reason to install panels. You can also use solar power to provide heat and hot water for your home.

Strong Alliances

As a Sacramento roofing contractor, we have forged strong ties to some of the best solar energy companies working today:

  • Canadian Solar—widest lines of photovoltaic (PV) panels in the business
  • Enphase Energy—world’s most efficient microinverter
  • Sharp Solar Energy—Sharp Solar products are used in more homes and businesses than any other renewable energy manufacturer
  • SMA Solar Technology—grid-tied inverters achieving 98 percent efficiency
  • Soligent—distributor of renewable energy products

How Solar Works

Straight Line Roofing can inspect and verify your roof is solar-ready, or bring it up to solar-ready, quickly and efficiently. As your local Sacramento roofing contractor, with years of experience in solar energy, we can quickly install just a few components, such as photovoltaic (PV) panels, an inverter and, possibly, racking.

We can make you independent of the energy grid, or take a more modest approach to supplement your Placerville home’s energy needs and keep you tied into your local electrical supplier. When your roof panels generate more energy than you use, the excess is credited back to you.

More elaborate solar installations, such as solar hot water systems, can provide up to 70 percent of your Placerville home’s hot water needs.

Solar energy is becoming more and more affordable to the average homeowner; the government even has, through 2016, a 30% income tax credit for solar systems. If you have been considering installing solar in your home, now is the time to do it.

At Straight Line Roofing we believe in green energy solutions. For more information on installing a solar system on your Placerville home, contact Straight Line Roofing.
