This guest post was written by the team at Infinite Energy. They have a list of 10 questions to ask a solar panel salesman before you commit to buying anything. Mapawatt also has an introduction to Residential Solar PV installation in our Education section!
The Dow Solar Shingle system consists of 3 main parts:
- Dow Powerhouse solar shingle array
From the Dow Solar Shingle pamphlet:
• Protects as a roofing material and provides renewable energy.
• A custom-designed, building-integrated photovoltaic solution for asphalt-composition shingle roofs that installs flush with asphalt shingles.
This post is from guest writer Don Lloyd, the author of an important book on geothermal heat pumps (featured here on Mapawatt): "The Smart Guide to Geothermal—How to Harvest Earth's Free Energy for Heating and Cooling" from PixyJack Press. It is a detailed analysis on what you need to look for in order to compare buying vs. leasing a solar pv system for your home.
