About Solar Energy
Solar power is energy from the sun that is transformed into thermal or electrical energy.
Solar energy is the cleanest and most abundant renewable resource source available, and the United States has some of the richest solar resources worldwide. Modern innovation can harness this energy for a variety of usages, consisting of producing electricity, supplying light or a comfortable interior environment, and heating water for domestic, commercial, or industrial usage.
Solar power makes it possible for homeowner to use the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, washing clothing, watching TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, many homeowners discover that the benefit, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically lower or even remove your electric costs
Whether you're a house owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a big part of your monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your utility expenses and you'll still save a lot of money.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy costs cost savings, the average American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, residential electricity rates have gone up by approximately three percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and safeguard versus unpredictable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a service or homeowner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and handle your costs.
#4 Boost your home or business value
Numerous studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need for residential or commercial properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential component of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A common residential solar panel system will remove three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are very important parts of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that decide to run properly. Organisations are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of consumer buying choices, developing goodwill and improving organisation results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Many house owners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The energy companies are well-known for their varying and undependable electrical energy rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can calculate how much electricity will be produced, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).
What are the various payment options?
We have many flexible purchasing agreements for customers who would like to install a new home solar system. There are three different payment options, making them a viable choice for customers of all budgets. The payment options include Lease, PPA, and Purchase.
- Low, fixed payments each month

What happens when the contract for my lease is finished?
We provide our customers with a few different options for when their lease contract is up. Customers can upgrade their equipment to the newest solar technology available, extend the agreement, or have the panels removed at no cost.
What is the warranty?
The Lease and PPA include a 20-year warranty during the lifetime of the system. This warranty exceeds that of most other solar installers’ warranties.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Could I Build A Small, Efficient Solar Panel?
I Am Trying To Come Up With A Term Project For A Class I'M In, And My Current Idea Involves Lighting Miniature Led Bulbs (We'Re Talking Tiny, Here) With A Homemade &Quot;Solar&Quot; Panel (I Would Probably In Actuality Use A Bright Light Instead Of The Sun). Is It Possible To Build Your Own Solar Panel Without Too Much Crazy Equipment Or Expenses? How Would I Do So?
You can get a small panel at Radio Shack. If you want to go to the trouble of trying to fabricate one from the ground up, that is another matter. Modern construction techniques are beyond the scope of even a well prepared home constructor. Vacuum deposition, being one of the steps in many of the types. Not to mention the hazardous and toxic materials used in manufacture.
Now, Lindsay books had at one time a book titled "How to Construct a Solar Cell That Really Works" which would make an interesting class project in itself. It uses primarily a copper penny- Pre 1982 US. If they still have it you should find at http://www.lindsaybks.com It does not produce enough power to operate an LED, but it does produce adequate power to deflect an analog meter needle.
At What Position (Angle And Direction) Should The Solar Panel Be Tilted To Get Maximum Heat?
I Want To Design Solar Panel With High Efficiency By Facing The Sun For Maximum Heat Absorption. Since Different Place Has Different Sunrise And Sunset Time, The Position Differs. Help Me.
umm just make them perpendicular to the sun. wait till like 1 pm and put a pencil standing up on your panels and adjust the panel until there is no shadow. it is then perpendicular
How Much Watt Of Solar Panel Do I Need For A 10Watt Led Bulb?
I'M Dealing With A Street Lamp Design Which Is Powered By Solar Energy.
And After Some Researches, I Decided To Use A 10 Watt Led Bulb For The Street Lamp. And I Want To Know That How Much Watt Of Solar Panel Do I Need To Supply Electricity To The Bulb.
Besides, How Much Volt Of Battery Is Needed? The Street Lamp Must Be Able To Store Energy During Day Time So That The Street Lamp Works During Night Time. And In Case Of Raining, Do I Need More Battery To Store Energy?
Btw, What Else Do I Need For The Street Lamp? Controller?
You must first determine for how long do you need the light to be on.
Second the wattage of the solar panel will determine how many electrical units will be generated in each day, i.e more the wattage more the units generated. Plus you must take into account the efficiency of the solar panels & the charge controller so the cumulative multiplied effect will give a different result.
Normally the led's can work on AC as well as DC Supply, so i feel you wont be needing an inverter.
Take a look at the LED Bulb's voltage & current ratings.
Once you know the current then get the time of keeping the LED Light on
multiply it & you will get your Ampere Hour rating of your battery. You may add some 10% to 20% to it to account for the losses in the wires and giving it more autonomy during the days when there is low or no sunshine.
Additional accessories i suggest,
photocell : this automatically will power up your led lamp once the sunlight incident on it reduces below a particular threshold.
Also have reflectors installed before you install your LED lamp, this will ensure good light quality
Do Solar Panels For Houses Attract Lighting?
I haven't heard buzz about this being an insurance concern, so I'd think that if panels attract lightning, the effect would be negligible.
Nevertheless, installers take care to ground the panels and the structures holding them, as required by the National Electrical Code. Also, lightning arrestors are sometimes used, but those are to protect in the event of a strike, not to discourage a strike.
What Is Plugged Solar? I Like Solar Energy And I Want To Know About The Pluggedsolar Technology?
I Always Have The Idea About Solar Energy Been Super Expensive, Unreachable For Some Of Us. This Product Seems To Be A Good Solution. Anybody Knows How This Works?
As per the news and online video, plugged solar technology has the same components as standard solar power systems, typically installed on roof or ground by solar contractors. These installed systems are high priced. The plugged solar kit is a do-it-yourself system and affordable by bringing the cost saving by 50%. The kit has A-grade solar panels with 25 years of warranty from top manufactures and the grid tie inverter has 95% efficiency as listed under California government energy department. The components are UL approved. As per the plugged solar web site, most of the utilities have approved pluggedsolar, including New York, Maryland, Florida, New Jersey, Arizona, California etc. What makes plugged solar different is the technology used to make the system pluggable into wall with all the UL approved components. This is done first time in the history. This was the plan of US department of energy as per the source below.
Please see the video below for the understanding of technology.
