Litty Solar Will Install Your New Roof

Weather affects roofs and one thing we have here in Minnesota is weather. Alas, your roof needs to be replaced from time to time. It’s one of the more costly home repair projects and that can be a stress factor for homeowners. But as long as you’re up there, have you considered solar shingles?

It wasn’t so long ago that solar shingles didn’t seem a viable option for homeowners because of the price. Recently, though, increased popularity in solar technology has led to increased sales. That price is coming down. Maybe now is the time for you to reconsider where you get your roof. And you’re in luck, Litty Solar is available. We were founded in 2018 and our mission is to build a sustainable future by making solar technology equitable for everyone. Whether homeowners, businesses, or renters, we offer solutions to everyone. And we are Minnesota’s first and only solar shingle installation company. Our roof reflects a more sustainable future.

What kind of benefits come with solar shingles? The biggest is, of course, the sustainability of your new energy source. Energy coming from the sun will cut into the energy generated by fossil fuels. This is good for all of us as there’s a much longer shelf life on the sun by a margin of a few billion years. But that sustainable energy has a further benefit as the solar shingles can cut your energy bill in half. Of course, roof replacement isn’t cheap and that’s also true of solar shingles. But solar shingles help cut that cost as an investment into your future months’ energy bills. Energy generated by solar shingles isn’t static, but average energy bills are halved. For Minnesotans, it’s important to remember that solar energy is generated by sunlight, not heat. The solar shingles will still do their job well in the winter time as long as the days aren’t too cloudy.

Not only that, but the Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) allows you to deduct 30% of the installation cost from your federal taxes. The ITC has been extended multiple times in the past and is currently set to expire at the end of 2021. However, the deduction percent declines to 26% in 2020 and to 22% in 2021, in the credit’s current form. This may be a deal you want to take advantage of this year, while the savings are still at their peak.

There’s an aesthetic appeal to solar shingles, as well. Solar shingles are different than solar panels. Panels tend to be boxes that sit on top of the roof, where solar shingles are integrated into the roof and lay flat. Litty Solar is accredited and trained in both Certainteed’s Apollo II and RGS’s award-winning Dow PowerHouse models, currently. Both have a sleek black, shiny appearance.

While roof replacement is never anyone’s hope for the new year, there is plenty of opportunity to be found. Contact us at info@littysolar.com for further information.
