The use of the sun as a source of energy is gaining popularity. Why? Because it’s a constant source of clean energy. Solar power does not emit smoke and other harmful chemicals and makes use of a renewable energy source that does not run out.
The sun is a great source of energy. It powers up the planet itself. So why not use it to power up your house?
How do solar panels work?
Solar panels typically work like the chlorophylls of plants.
With solar panels, the photovoltaic (PV) panels convert the energy of the sun into electrical energy, which you can use to power up your home. The solar panels convert the speeding photons in the sunlight into electricity.
As you’re already aware, having solar panels can drastically lower your electricity bill. This is because while your home will still be connected to the power grid, the electricity you generate can be used to offset your electricity bill. This means you’ll only have to pay the power company for any usage over the amount of energy that you produce plus a moderate fee to be connected to the power grid.

Frequently asked questions
With solar energy, you can save tons and tons of money. Commercial electricity is on the rise every year, as much as 6.7% in some cases, and every incremental increase would compound over time.
In addition, the Federal Government promotes going solar through its federal tax credit program. You can enjoy up to 30% in federal tax credits.
For example, a $15,000 PV Solar system would reduce your federal tax liability by as much as $4,500. This is a great incentive for those who are thinking about going solar. If you get a roof and Solar installed, you will also get up to a 30% tax credit on a portion of the cost of your roof as well.
With all the savings you can get from tax credits and from what you’d save by using solar instead of commercial energy, your solar project will pay for itself in no time!
By going solar, you will be able to:
- Save thousands of dollars on your energy bills.

Yorkshire Roofing: Your Best Option for Solar Roofing
Here at Yorkshire Roofing and RoofMax Solar, we utilize only the best in Solar Panel technology. We only use premium panels from Panasonic & LG, two highly trusted Companies with a very long reliable history.
These panels have low temperature coefficient and have the highest “Guaranteed Production” numbers after the 25 year period compared to other panels on the market today. Many of our competitors use cheap foreign-made solar panels with large main inverters to save money.
Our systems come equipped with Micro-Inverters, which means that each panel works independently to produce clean efficient solar power. With our Micro-Inverters, if one inverter is having issues, the whole system is still up and running and still producing power and saving you money. Each inverter can be repaired or replaced independently of the others.
