Amazing Solar Powered Homes

One of the first things that I did when I moved into my new home was start looking into my options for solar power. I’m a big believer in reducing dependence on natural resources that are unsustainable, and one of the best ways to do that is by using natural resources that are sustainable, like sunlight. I was thrilled to have my own home that I could customize with solar power. I found that there were all kinds of options for solar power besides those big clunky solar panels. I eventually settled on solar shingles for my roof, and I’m looking into solar powered windows, too. I started this blog to share more information about solar trends with people who are as interested in sustainable energy as I am. I hope to help you understand how contractors can help with these large projects!

Frequent, volatile weather systems affecting the United States has led meteorologists to coin terms such as "bomb cyclones" and "bombogenesis," as well as many others. While the names can be both frightening and amusing, the powerful storms they represent are not funny. Often these storms are particularly violent due to the clash of warm and cold air in the upper atmosphere that can result in the creation of a hailstorm.  While most storms of this nature produce small diameter hail that rarely does damage, those that produce large hailstones can inflict serious damage to residential shingled roofs, as well as some types of roofing materials.
