Green roofing systems are becoming the future and are certainly the best way for you to save money on energy bills and help the environment. Roofing contractors in Cambridgeshire are taking homes and making them more energy efficient. The most effective forms of green systems are solar panels and green roofing systems.   

 

Solar Panels

Solar energy has been used for years and is operated by collecting the sun’s rays and turning it into energy, using it for our electricity and to heat our homes and water.

Due to the fact that solar energy is operated from the sun’s rays, it isn’t very efficient when there is no sun. In bad weather conditions such as rainy, overcast days, the sun’s rays struggle to get through the atmosphere. However, the panels will still receive some rays and work but just not as efficiently. As a result, the solar panels have a backup battery pack and an electric source, so you’re not left without electricity.

Solar energy is a renewable source and has absolutely no negative effects on the environment nor does it pollute the atmosphere in any way. The only cost involved in solar panels is getting them installed. They are quite expensive to have fitted onto your roof but are also very easy to install and require minimal maintenance.
