The shift toward a more natural resource for energy has become a push and a drive over the last few decades. Solar energy fits that need beautifully. Solar panels generate electricity with no air or carbon pollution, no ash or waste products, and no inputs other than the sun itself. The sun has been a source of energy as long as man has existed and now is the right time to change our focus and use this beautiful resource. 

The first place many begin in considering solar is what it will cost. In Orange County, plan to budget between $11,000 and $17,000 for the average home. Of course, for an accurate estimate, contact Guardian Roofs in Orange County. We are proud to be one of the first roofers in the country to sell and install this new solar roof technology.
