The latest roofing technology is solar roofs, but not solar panels, the brand new solar shingles by roofing industry leaders GAF. These new solar shingles available in Fayetteville and the surrounding areas offer tons of advantages to traditional solar panels from ease of installation to a sleek, high-end look. There are plenty of reasons why homeowners should switch from asphalt shingles to solar shingles, but maybe the most compelling his how solar roofs save money by lowering electrical bills and providing electricity to your local grid.
With these kinds of savings, solar shingles can even pay for themselves over time! This new roofing technology turns your roof into an energy-producing asset, actually creating money instead of just adding to your property values.

Southern Premier Roofing, Fayetteville NC’s most reputable roofers, now offer solar shingles to North Carolina homeowners, and we can upgrade your roof without breaking the bank. The best thing about solar roof shingles is that they pay for themselves! How? Let’s get into it!
How Solar Roof Shingles Work
To understand how a new solar roof can save money for homeowners, it’s important to understand how they work.
- Sunlight hits the solar shingle and generates direct current electricity. The clear coating on the solar shingle allows this light to get to the photovoltaic cells that generate the current.
- This DC electricity flows to a inverter that converts it to alternating current (AC) electricity, which can more easily enter your home’s electrical system.
- The AC electricity flows to the home’s electrical panel to power the home, and if more electricity is being made than is being used, it will send it back into the local electrical grid, through your meter.
How Solar Shingles Save Money
This last step is how solar roofing saves homeowners money. Since the excess electricity flows through the home’s electrical meter back into the grid, it is credited to your bill. This saves money on monthly electrical charges, but there’s more! Because you’re producing clean energy at a lower cost than the rate charged by your local utility company, your bill can lower even more!
Solar shingles also cost less than traditional solar panels to install because they can be nailed to roof underlayment just like regular shingles instead of requiring expensive brackets and special connections to batteries. So not only do they save money on your electric bill, they start off cheaper than solar panels!
