Roberts-McNutt is THE GO-TO Company to KEEP THE WATER OUT
For decades, man has used solar to save on rising energy costs. Why not? The sun is free and it’s available on the majority of days! Here at Roberts-McNutt we are proud of our reputation as a trusted leader in the industry. We have a wealth of experience to handle not only all of your roofing and waterproofing needs, but all of your solar needs as well. In mid 2011, we launched our new solar division. As a solar integrator, we offer photo-voltaic (PV)solar panels, thermal solar, solar design services, and turn-key installation of residential solar systems and commercial solar systems. Our solar panels are an incredibly smart energy solution for you and your business! Not only will our solar panels save you electricity, they will save you a lot of money and protect the planet.
According to a study conducted by the Edison Electric Institute, electricity prices went up 2.5% annually in the past few years, and are following a steady upward trend. That rising cost is being driven in part by the rising cost of fuels, such as coal and natural gas. The bad news is that as these lines continue to go up, so will your electricity bill. With that said, local home improvement experts say an investment in solar will pay for itself in a shorter period of time.
Now let’s talk about tax credits. In an effort to encourage homeowners to go green, the U.S. government has offered significant tax credits for installing solar panels as an alternate energy source. While a tax break that allowed renewable energy companies to recoup 30% of a new project back as a cash grant after construction expired this year, a residential federal tax credit of 30% will remain in place until December 31st of 2016.
The way our solar panels work is simple. Solar Electric or Photovoltaic (PV) systems convert light into electricity. For FREE! This is accomplished by using a thin layer of semi-conducting material, enclosed in a glass or plastic casing. A PV system is a balanced mixture of three variables – current electric use, availability of space on the roof and budget.
Solar Thermal technology utilizes the heat of the sun to decrease the need for natural gas or electricity. Solar Thermal Panels are simple, fully automatic, reliable and efficient, converting sunlight into usable, free energy for decades at a time. Let us here at Roberts McNutt show you how to save your money using what Mother Nature provides for free!
