    Yes, researching for an highly functional and attractive solar roof shingle that looks like shingle of slate.

    Currently have solar for pool. Am paying $200+/- per month for electricity. Probably would pay closer to $400 with pool. Home only 2500 sq ft

    I am amazed that we are not seeing more solar communities in Florida.

    So glad to see you took a step in that direction. Homes in a soft market will retain their value and sell quicker. Everybody wants a totalky solar home with a $5 month electric bill.

    The local electric company is behind the times.

    When I do find a product, and commit to doing my roof over, it cannot be assessed for taxation as I read the rules. It is free from tax.

    Thank you for letting me make a comment. Email me anytime with pictures and progress of your project.
