08 Nov How Long Do Solar Panels Last in Florida?
As a homeowner, you’ll face a number of decisions as you make changes to your property. A roof is one of the most important investments you’ll make. Which kind of roof is right for you? You may be considering asphalt, metal or tile, but there’s something else you should consider as you invest in your home.
The odds are good that a solar roof is a good decision for you. Choosing to install solar panels is a significant move with benefits that will last for decades. As you prepare to decide whether solar installation is the right decision for you, you’ll likely have many questions about the process. How much will it cost? How does it work? And how long does it last? You may be wondering how long you’ll have a solar roof before you’re tasked with replacing it.
Most solar panels come with a manufacturer’s warranty of 20 years, which guarantees the solar panels will operate at 80 percent efficiency after two decades. Solar panels may last even longer than the 20-year warranty. Also worth considering: During that 20-year period, you’ll save anywhere from $7,000 to $30,000 on electricity costs.
A regular roof will last 20 to 25 years, but you won’t have any of the benefits of solar panels. Not only will you save on your electricity costs, but you’ll also receive a federal tax credit with a 30 percent rebate. Solar energy can power your entire home, including outdoor appliances. You’ll also have the chance to help better the environment.
