Take advantage of energy efficient tax credits before they expire

Home energy efficiency upgrades are eligible for a $1500 dollar federal tax credit until December 2010. Qualified roof products must reflect the sun's rays away from the house, thereby lowering roof surface temperatures and decreasing the total amount of heat transferred into your home.

Conventional asphalt/shingle roofing offers no reflectivity or heat protection and therefore is not normally awarded an Energy Star seal or tax credit eligibility.


Cool metal roofing, on the other hand, comes in a variety of colors that all meet EPA standards for Energy Star certification.

Reflectivity as high as 90% can be achieved with Kynar coated metal roofing.
Energy Roofing Systems carries a unique product package of Energy Star rated, tax credit eligible cool metal roofing along with solar panel technology (http://www.energyroofingsystems.net/7.html). They offer both thermal and photovoltaic solar options.

There are tax credits available for purchasing solar energy systems. The federal tax credit is 30% of the cost, up to $500 per .5kW of power capacity. The state tax credit in Georgia is 35% of the cost, up to $10,500.

Additionally, Georgia Power and other utility companies are offering solar buyback programs to purchase solar energy generated from homeowners at a premium of 17 cents per kW up to an aggregate capacity of 1 MW. Information on solar incentives in Georgia can be found at http://www.energyroofingsystems.net/39.html .

By combining energy efficient metal roofing with solar technology, homeowners can expect energy savings in the range of 55-70%!

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
