Should We Install Solar Panels in Our Roof?

A small house with solar panels, illustration only

Renewable resources such as wind and sun are getting popular in many states in the USA right now. There are plenty reasons why people eager to use these resources.

In case of solar energy, the benefits to install solar panels on the roofs are:
- federal incentive of tax credit
- additional the tax credit incentive is provided by some states.
- increase housing value
- saving electricity cost for years

Louisiana state does not give additional tax credit, but provide property tax exemption. Let’s say, we as Louisiana residents will get:
- 30% tax credit from federal government of solar panels cost.
- excluded added value of property tax.

Many researches showed that housing value could increase by up to 20 times if we have a 5 kW solar system on our roof.

In term of dollar, solar panels could make housing value up to US$ 24,000 in the market. Quite good for investment.

It is estimated that 20 solar panels need roof space of 5 hundreds square feet, then, it would produce 5,000 watts.

However, in Louisiana, let’s say we pay US$ 150 per month for electric bill, we might need solar panels system to produce 9500 watts.

Interestingly, the solar system may last for 25 years. We avoid rising cost of electricity for so long, hence, save thousands of dollars.

    2. Yeah, and can save electricity too ... especially like Indonesia, this is really suitable for such an installment ... But it's pretty good for buying one panel, the price is exorbitant: D

  16. I have a dream; once upon a time no more oil and gas exploration on earth. The energy source should be an unlimited: Solar System energy with renewal. Clean and healthy enviroment in the world - those the only home we have. It is a technology for human being.

    Imagine, they dig a dangerous holes in the earth for oil and gas; and make us thought that are the only way to extend entire human life! When they said by the human, they tell to themselves: For money, for business. A dirty business for small group, and make a whole world entire in risk: So life is jeopardy because a small group made it

  20. A revolution is causing the installation of solar panels and also wind energy in my country. At the moment in the southern provinces and other interior areas, although it does not reach the city today. But I am of the idea of ​​installing them in my house as soon as I can. Great to make me think about this, Evi. One thus validates their convictions and dreams of living in the best way for one and our habitat.

    Great article. Hugs to Louisiana, Evi.

  41. In southern Spain mainly, it has been years since the use of renewable energy has been implemented.
    Another new trend, here in Spain, is the use of electric scooters, which also attracts me a lot.

    Best regards and have a happy week!
