YES – You can Install Solar on Slate Roofs in Connecticut
Connecticut has many affluent homeowners who are interested in the many incentives the state provides for choosing solar. There’s a 26% federal tax credit, and homeowners are exempt from property tax increases based on the installation of the solar system as well as the sales tax on the purchase of the system.
Many of these affluent homeowners have homes with slate roofs. Slate roofs have many benefits, including the fact they’re gorgeous, durable, fireproof, and extremely long lasting. But nothing is completely perfect. Slate roofs have long been perceived as being unsuitable for solar installation. This is because the fragile slate roofing tiles shatter, chip and break when mounting holes are drilled in the wrong spot.
