Are solar shingles the cheapest way to have solar power in your home?

    The cheapest technology of solar energy to have on your home is solar thermal. Solar thermal can heat up your home’s water with very little energy use. A typical 40 gallon solar collector will roughly cost around $5,000, and that is before tax credits and incentives roll in. First you have the federal tax credit of 30% and depending on what state you live in and if they offer any incentive programs it can even go lower than that!

    But solar shingles aren’t the cheapest, I haven’t really even seen any solar shingles out on the market anymore, now that thin film has been introduced.
