4 Things You Didn't Know Your Solar Roof Could Power

Residential solar panels are more popular than ever, and that type of energy source could save you quite a bit of money in the coming years. If you are still on the fence about having solar panels installed, then you might want to take a look at these four unique things that your new panels will be able to power.

A Residential Well

Those who truly want to live off the grid will need to consider drilling their own residential well. That type of resource might be able to provide your family with fresh water for decades, but you will need to figure out how you are going to power the pump. Attaching the pump and filter to your solar roof is going to save you money and ensure that you have a constant supply of fresh water even during rolling blackouts.

Your Electric Car

There are now millions of electric cars out on the road, and practically every auto manufacturer has released one fully electric vehicle. While charging stations are being built throughout the world at a very fast pace, many people want to be able to charge their vehicles at home. With a solar roof and home charging station, you could essentially drive your electric vehicle for free, and that will result in huge savings.

Water Features

One of the reasons why many people never even consider installing pools, spas, and other water features is because they don’t want a huge increase in their energy bills. Modern water pools and spas tend to have relatively efficient pumps and filtration systems, but they could still increase your energy bills by a significant amount. Your solar roof will be able to offset that new expense so that you can fully enjoy your new water feature.

Sump Pumps

Sump pumps are extremely important safety features, and those devices can greatly reduce your risk of serious water damage. Unfortunately, your sump pumps could turn off entirely if a storm or flood knocks the power out. With a residential solar roof, you can rest assured that your sump pumps will continue to work even if the energy grid goes down.

 

While solar panels can be added to a building at any time, those who are building a home from the ground up should consider including panels in their initial build. Incorporating solar into your home loan will make this type of upgrade very affordable, and you should be able to enjoy the benefits of your new green energy system for many years to come.
