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 property owner to use the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, washing clothes, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, many homeowners find that the convenience, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.
Leading Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly minimize or perhaps remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a property owner, company, or nonprofit, electricity expenses can comprise a large part of your monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll create free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your energy bills and you'll still save a great deal of cash.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power bill cost savings, the typical American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, domestic electricity costs have gone up by an average of three percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect against unforeseeable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a service or property owner with changing cash flow, going solar also helps you better forecast and handle your expenditures.
#4 Boost your home or business value
Multiple research studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and offer more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties equipped 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 accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost variations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a terrific method to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A typical residential solar panel system will get rid of three to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are very important parts of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding services that opt to run responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of consumer buying choices, producing goodwill and improving organisation results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Numerous house owners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The utility companies are infamous for their changing and unreliable electrical energy prices. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can compute just how much electrical power will be created, and most significantly, at exactly what cost, for at least 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
- System insurance for 20 years, including maintenance
- Flexible end-of-term options, including system upgrade, lease extension, and free panel removal
Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)
- We own the solar panel system
- $0 down for installation
- Customers only pay for the solar energy that they use
- Customer pays for the system upfront and owns the system
- System monitoring and maintenance for 20 years
- Receive 30% federal tax credit
- See a return on investment within 7-10 years
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.

How Much Money Can Be Saved By Having Solar Panels?
Given The Current Events Of This Energy Crisis I Was Musing About The Idea Of Solar Panels On Every Rooftop. I See All The Houses And Skyscrapers On This Sunny Day And I Just Wonder How Much Energy Can Be Stored By Installing Solar Panels On Each Roof. I Don'T Think We Can Completely Rely On It, But Could It Not Help Lift The Burden Of The Electric Bill For Everyone Even If A Little?

Do Gaps Between Panels On Solar Parking Canopies Build Up With Ice In The Winter?
I See A Lot Of Solar Canopies Being Erected Over Parking Lots And Multi-Story Parking Garages. Many Of Them Have The Solar Panels Mounted Directly On The Structure With No Roofing (You Can See The Underside Of The Panels When Looking Up From The Parking Lot Below). There'S A Small Gap Between Each Panel. I'Ve Never Been To One Of These While It'S Raining But I Guess You Get &Quot;Sheets&Quot; Of Rain Coming Down In A Grid Rectangular Grid Pattern. I Don'T Think That'S A Good Idea But What Happens In The Winter. Do You Get A Build Up Of Icicles At These Gaps And On The Structure Below As The Drips Freeze? That Could Be Extremely Dangerous.
Anytime you have dripping water and subfreezing temps you may get icicles.
The gaps help by giving the water and ice somewhere to go so that the expansion pressure does not cause damage to the panels. When the sun hits the panels ice and snow will often melt enough to slide off.
How To Prevent Shorting Out Solar Panel?
I Have A Solar Panel I Bought For A Diy Project And It Has A Small Plug On The End Of It, But I Need To Remove This Plug To Expose The Positive And Return Wires So I Can Solder A Bunch Of Stuff Together. How Do I Cut Off The Plug Without Shorting Out The Solar Panel When I Make The Cut? Can I Just Leave It In The Dark A While Before Cutting? I Don'T Think I Can Remove The Wires From The Solar Panel End Before Cutting.
A solar panel doesn't store energy. As soon as the light stops, the current stops instantly.
If it's a 200-watt panel or more, it won't be harmed by a short circuit, but it might be good to turn the panel over or cover it with cardboard before working on it. The spark can slightly mar the contacts. Doing the work indoors is enough to cut down the current, too.
For a 60-watt panel or less, I wouldn't even worry about the spark, the power output is too low to do any damage.
How Long Does It Take To Charge A 12V, 200Ah Deep Cycle Battery With A 125 Watt Solar Panel?
Hey Alip, Graham is on the right track, his math is correct, but there are some inefficiencies here, mainly the voltage curve of panels and batteries during charging, and the heat losses inside the battery as well. Fortunately they are easily calculated.
A 125 solar panel that is wired for 12 volts (as most of them are), actually puts out about 18 volts open curcuit, and only 7 amps short circuit. But your battery will not see these voltages, once you connect the two together, the panels voltage will droop to match the battery, but the 7amps will remain. So the problem becomes simply a question of Amp Hours. If your battery is completely discharged, you will have to put back the 200 amp hours it holds, plus about 10% more. On a clear day, you might have sun for 8 hours, but the first 2 and last 2 are not full production because of the angle the sun is to the panel, and how much atmosphere the sun has to travel through. In most clear dry areas, we consider a good day of solar collection to be around 6 hours of direct noon time sun over the course of the day. With 7 amps flowing into the battery for 6 hours, you end up with 42 amp hours to work with, but since the battrey uses about 4 of them heating up and boiling some fluid away, only 38 are stored. At that rate, you would need 6 good days of sun to bring that battery back up to full.
If you're considering hooking something like this up, you'll also need a charge controller since the panels out put is more than 2% of the batteries amp hour capacity (4amps). Charge controllers today are pretty efficient though, maybe 98% or so, so it isn't worth allowing for its losses in your system. If you had 2 batteries wired in parallel for 400 amp hours, you could skip the contoller, and spend that money on the second battery instead, then you would have twice the storage.
We live in a solar powered home, which happens to be powered by 16 125 watt panels. They run almost everything in the house, the lights, appliances and electronics. So you can go a long way with a panel like that if you learn to use your power judiciously. There are some great sources you can check out to learn more if you like, I will list some below. Take care Alip, Rudydoo
