Easy to install, lightweight, flexible solar panels are now a reality. Seamless integration gives you all the advantages of solar power without much pain in the rear. These low maintenance roll out solar tiles from IB Roofing require no additional support or engineering, just roll them out, tack them down, and plug them in.
Everything can be installed by a single contractor. Federal and state tax credits are available for almost anything with the word “solar” in it.
One key benefit of these lightweight panels is the low price to temporarily remove and replace them when your roof needs to be repaired or replaced. Typically, dismounting and reassembling and older era solar array could run $3-5,000.
The price to outfit a typical home with these panels is generally around $7-$9,000. Roof Tax Credits will typically cover up 30% of the total installation costs (with no cap).
I think these have a chance of getting extremely popular once they have withstood a few years of storms and build some reputation.
