Solar is on the minds of most people but many just don’t understand what is out there, unsure of how to go about moving forward or just not impressed with the giant panels they see on the few of the homes they have noticed with panels attached. Recent developments have given homeowners a solution to the visual and financial set backs of installing solar panels. CertainTeed’s solar Apollo shingle is a low profile shingle replacement system that will generate electricity for homeowners needs. This means that when you install Apollo you install less roof instead of placing panels on top of a new surface. The shingles are as effective as solar panels and as durable. Additionally, with available tax credits, utility savings and funding, as well as ‘green’ financing options the solar system will be cost effective immediately.
