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 house owners to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothing, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, many residents find that the convenience, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Leading Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically minimize or even remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a property owner, company, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can make up a large part of your monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility expenses and you'll still save a great deal of loan.
#2 Make a great return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the finest ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power expense savings, the typical American house owner settles their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, residential electricity rates have gone up by approximately three percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're an organisation or house owner with ever-changing money circulation, going solar also assists you better forecast and handle your costs.
#4 Boost your home value
Several research studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher home values and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, demand for homes equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential element of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate changes in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent method to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A normal domestic photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are very important elements of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that decide to run properly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of consumer getting decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing organisation results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Many house owners choose to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The energy companies are infamous for their fluctuating and unreliable electricity rates. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can compute just how much electricity will be generated, and most notably, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed 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
Solar Power Cheaper Or More Expensive?
Is Solar Power Cheaper Than Regular Electricity Some People Say That If Your Home Is Completely Solar Powered It Is Free But What About The Cost Of The Batteries It Would Take To Store The Energy When They Run Out You Have To By New Batteries I Know Batteries Or Not Cheap
Solar is one of the most expensive. You have it right. The cost of the panels, regular replacement of batteries and the electronics to turn DC into AC all get figured into the cost. Also solar panels have about a 20 year life span before they need to be replaced.
Oil is free to until you and in the cost of drilling, refining and shipping.
If You Have A Coffee Pot That Uses 1000 Watts And You Leave It On For One Hour, It Uses 1 Kwh, Right?
How Many Watts Would A Solar Panel Have To Be Rated For If The Panel 'Ran' At Full For 10 Hours A Day In Order To Power The Coffee Pot That Was Left One For 5 Hours A Day?
You didn't say "rated for 1000 watts", you said "uses 1000 watts". Anyway, ignoring the example you gave, 1000 watts for one hour is
Actually your whole question sounds theoretical, since you specify that the solar panel runs at full capacity for 10 hours and this is impossible.
The biggest problem with your question, theoretical or not, is that you can't run a load at 1000 W off of a source that only supplies 500 W.
You'd have to have a battery to store the 5 hours of solar panel output before the load started running for 5 hours, and then having the panel and battery together supplying the load.
Some1 Super Familiar W/ Batteries, Electricity N Solar Panels Please Help Me With Questions On How To Get Electricity To A Cabin Without....?
I Am Moving On To An Organic Farm And Will Be Living In A Beautiful Log Cabin, Without Electricity. I Would Like To Be Able To Keep My Laptop Charged, Have A Lamp On At Night And Keep A Fan Going On At Night. Does Anyone Actually,Know Of A Creative Way To Get Electricity Out There. I Was Thinking A Solar Panel In The Field To Charge A Marine Battery...? I Dont Know How Big Of A Solar Panel Or Battery I Would Need Though... I Was Thinking Since I Am Not Too Too Far From Their House And Its An Organic Farm A Generator Might Not Be Appropriate And My Cabin Is In The Woods So A Solar Panel Directly Near The Cabin Wouldnt Work Either. I Move April 9Th So I Am Cutting It Short Looking For Ideas, And I Am Looking To Spend No More Than 4Hundred. Help Please!
Taylor, not really a hard project. If it were me, I would use two Trojan T-105 golf cart batteries, you need two because they are 6 volts each, wire them in series for 12 volts. That will give you a 220 amp hour battery. Now go to ebay and look for a panel, no more than 80 watts, but at least 50 watts. Should cost around $90. When the panel comes, see if there are little black diodes across two of the terminal screws in the junction box on the back of the panel. Most have them installed. If so, you only need to connect the positive of the panel to the positive of the battery, and the negative to the negative, and your batteries are charging. You won't need a charge controller if you use the golf cart batteries since the maximum panel amps is less than 2% of the battery capacity, it can't overcharge the batteries. Now go to superbrightleds.com and order a couple small waterproof LED warm white light strips, a 1 foot strip costs around $10. Two of them are great for reading under and they use 1.4 watts each. Get a couple other ones if you like, but use LED's, they are so much more efficient, and since they are 12 volt, you don't need an inverter to run them. Inverters use power just being turned on.
For the laptop, you will need an inverter, I would just look for one around 600 - 800 watts at an auto parts store, or Home Depot, or Harbor Freight, cost around $60. Just use it when you need to charge the laptop, no more than a couple hours a day, and do it when the sun is shining if possible, during the day, instead of running the battery down at night and counting on the panel to recharge in the day, you'll use less power this way. You can also connect a car cigarette lighter outlet to the battery and charge cell phones, ipods, and run MP3 speakers for music off them. Any small electronic device with a car cord will work, even a portable DVD player for the car works fine, we use it on the sailboat this way.
If you want to use a marine battery instead, maybe if you have one already, then get a charge controller, at least a 10 amp model set up for 12 volts. Many work in multiple voltages, 12/24 for example, they are fine. They are even easier to hook up, since they have two screws for the panel, two for the battery, and two for your output, connect the car cigarette lighter outlet there, then you don't have to worry about diodes or over charging. A controller like this might cost you $25 on ebay.
Hi Everybody My Question Is Relating With Solar Panel Plz Some Body Clear Me About Decrease In Amp Of Panel?
Is Current Of Solar Panel Decrease With The Life Cycle Or It Remains Constant.
All semiconductor materials degrade with use, although very slowly, and solar panels are no exception.
Warranties for modern solar panels are written to guarantee 80% of the nameplate power after 25 years. From that, you can get an idea of the degradation.
Cheap amorphous panels may come with only a 90-day warranty, or no warranty at all. That type of panel can go down to 1/3 of the nameplate value in a year.
How To Generate Electricity In Space?
Is There Any Other Way To Generate Electricity In Space Besides Solar Panels?
Thanks In Advance.
A combination of systems, such as a hybrid system would be the most effective.
Of course solar panels are the best way, but due to the inverse square law, the further you are from a star, the less power you can generate. This is good for when you are in close to a star. But the most efficient way would be nuclear fusion. This is the way stars are actually powered, but humans are yet to achieve this. We currently use nuclear fission, which is ok, but we need to improve our techniques.
