Today, there is an urgent need to cut down on your domestic bills to optimise savings. One thing that usually eats into your income is the money you spend to pay for electricity. Harnessing solar power will provide an alternative means of power in your home. It will help you cut down your power bill quite significantly. To add on that, using solar energy is a great incentive to the environment because the sun is a source of clean energy. You will be doing the world a great favour using solar power over the traditional hydroelectric power. Here is a comparison between solar panels and solar tiles to help you make the right consumer:
Solar panels are photosensitive devices used for converting the sun's light and heat energies into electrical energy. They are large flat pieces of equipment designed for harnessing natural light and put it in a form that can be transmitted using cables and stored for future use.
Unlike a case where solar panels are cast over a traditional roof, solar tiles replace the entire roof. They are roof shingles that act as the roof and perform the functions of solar panels at the same time. They come in a host of colours, sizes, shapes to suit different house designs. They are thus a good option for anyone that's looking to do an overhaul of their roof or install a new one when building their house.

Hello, my name is Colin and this is my construction blog. When people think of the construction industry, they often just imagine guys in hard hats building brick walls. While this is a popular image of the industry, it doesn't reflect the true diversity of different contractors and tradesmen who are involved in a construction project. Lasy year, my wife and I decided to construct our dream home. I had to arrange visits of plumbers, roofers, electricians, surveyors and home builders in order to get the job done. I learnt a lot during that experience, so I decided to start this blog.
