|Frequently asked questions about Century Roof and Solar solutions.
|For most solar consumers, the solar technology field and terms are still new.
|Did you know that human use of Solar energy dates back to the 7th century B.C.?
|Solar energy is rapidly making the transition from an “alternative energy” source to a standard around the world. Learn more about the many benefits of a solar powered solution!
Our energy demands are unsustainable using current energy generation trends as we consume the finite resources that these trends demand. In addtion, the buring of coal and oil, the two most common of ways of generating power currently, are major contributors to global warming. We don’t have much time to integrate a new solution. With a solar energy installation, you become part of that solution. Solar energy is a truly “green” energy source producing zero emissions and is rapidly receiving world-wide attention as the leading alternative energy solution.
After the initial cost of your array, you can very possibly be generating enough power from your solar installation to maintain complete independence from your grid power utility. Wow. Battery backup options mean that you can rely on continuous power even at night or during a utility power outage.
With no moving parts, a solar system requires no spare parts, uses no fuel and is is virtually maintenance free. Combine this with an amazing 4 decade lifespan and you have an unparalled energy solution.
You will be generating free energy long after you have paid off your system. In many cases, even financing a solar installation will cost you less than what you already pay to your power utility. In addtion, the Federal Government has just extended its tax incentive program through 2008. This could mean up to $4000 in tax credits... This credit is not a reduction in your taxable income, but a dollar for dollar reduction in what you owe. If you end up with more credit than taxes, you get to carry the credit over to the next year! It couldn’t be a better time to act.
