It is the big decision one have to make and is becoming more popular with the passage of time.
Before going ahead do your research right, and consider the different factors involved in the installation of solar panel
Sunlight plays a vital role in this kind of energy conservation because you need direct sun exposure for a solar panel to save the energy and if you can not get enough amount of it then you should consider other sources for energy
Not every roof is supporting the solar panel because it comes in various sizes and forms, before installing the panel, you should assess your roof whether it will be suitable structurally or not

Types of solar panels
There are Two solar technologies available
Photovoltaic: Use arrays of cells to convert sunlight into electricity
Thermal: Use sunlight to heat air or water for internal use, it is suitable in situations where you need a lot of energy for heating and is rarely used for homes
