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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c, cleaning clothing, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, many home owners find that the convenience, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Leading Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically lower or perhaps remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a property owner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can make up a large part of your regular monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your utility costs and you'll still save a great deal of cash.
#2 Make a great return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy bill cost savings, the typical American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the past 10 years, property electrical energy rates have gone up by approximately three percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're an organisation or property owner with rising and falling capital, going solar also helps you better projection and manage your costs.
#4 Boost your house worth
Several research studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property worths and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, need for properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate changes in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a great way to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A common domestic solar panel system will remove three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are essential components of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding organisations that opt to operate responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of consumer acquiring decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Lots of homeowners pick to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The energy business are well-known for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can determine what does it cost? electricity will be produced, and most importantly, at 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
- 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.
Frequently Asked Questions
What Specification Of Solar Panel Do I Need?
What Specification Of Solar Panel Would I Need To Power A Laptop Every Day? I Would Need To Use It For About 10 Hours Or So Every Day. I Don'T Know Anything About Solar Panels, But I Am Seriously Thinking Of Getting One Now And Don'T Know Who To Ask.
You will need, A battery to store the electricity from the solar panel. The amount of electricity from the panel varies up and down as things such as clouds, position of the sun, etc. reduce the amount of solar rays hitting the panel. The battery stores it all, the ups and downs, and sends it back out at a steady voltage so you can operate your p.c. / appliance.
A minimum of 45 watts solar panel. 60 watts would be preferable. 45 watts will charge a battery in one day under ideal conditions. You turn the panel as the sun moves across the sky, no clouds. 60 watts will charge a battery in one day with out moving and regardless of clouds.
A controler to prevent the electricity from flowing backwards from the battery to the solar panel when the sun goes behind a cloud or sets at night and the charge drops below the voltage of the battery. A good controller will tell you the charge condition of your battery so you know when it is too low to operate your p.c. safely.
And finally an inverter with "True Sine Wave" capability to change the electricity from the battery into usuable power for your PC and other electronics.
Not all inverters produce true sine wave electricity. The electricity has static in it and will make your pc screen jump around and not function as it should. New digital T.V.'s also require true sine wave electricity to operate. Go the extra cost and get the inverter with true sine wave and be happy with the way your p.c. functions.
Figure out how many Watts your p.c. or appliance will draw. and match the Inverter to the need. Do not go too big, as they cost more and consume more of your stored electricity to operate. Save as much electricity as you can. You will be able to operate your p.c. appliance longer.
When not using your p.c., you can operate your T.V. or other low watt appliance.
Where Can I Find Info On Starting A Solar Panel/Energy Company?
I Have An Existing Business And Would Like To Start A Company Installing/Manufacturing Solar Panels. Creating Solar Energy Interests Me Also.
My husband has been an installer of Solar pool heating and Solar Hot Water heaters, and other things with solar for about 5 years now, we are also looking to open our own solar company, the requirements here in florida are that you have been in the solar field for 4 years and 1 year as a supervisor, then you have to buy all the books (12 in total) and stufy them and take an Exam to actually be able to get your license, so if you want to open the business doing solar you have to know solar but while i was looking into it i noticed it said "You can also substitute up to three years of college credit hours for experience." and the college credits do not need to be construction related, i guess the best thing to do is type in yahoo "Solar license & the state you live in because each state has their own requirements! one thing is the company my husband works for, they pay about $1,800 for material and sell the systems for about $9,000, so theres money to be made!! good luck and let me know how it goes!
What Type Off Solar Panel Is Best (Flat Or Tube)?
I Am Building A New House And I Want To Know What Type Off Panel Is Best And How Much It Should Be I Live In N Ireland
If it's never going to freeze, go flat. That's the standard solar hot water in Hawaii.
If it has a miniscule chance of freezing, you could still get a flat panel, but would need to have a pressure relief valve on it, and maybe have the kind of system you can completely drain.
The evacuated tube type of collector costs more, but has the advantage that you can put whatever liquid you like in the tube, to transfer the heat to a tank below. Antifreeze is often used, like in the radiator of your car.

Hey Ofir, you need to subscribe to Home Power Magazine. It's the only periodical that gets into the nuts and bolts of what you are asking about. About 3 or 4 issues ago they did a comparison of all known commercially available solar panels on the market today. The list compares about 20 items, such as power output, warranty period, size, weight, degradation due to temperature and lifetime, and so on. Each issue they take something related to renewable energy, like inverters, wind turbines, charge controllers, and so on, and compare all the models available.
We started subscribing about 12 years ago, and it's where I still get lots of my information today. Our home is now powered entirely by the wind and sun, so in our case it's been good research over the years. I don't know anyplace else to get the in depth information you are asking for, but I will list some other non profit sources below you can look for on the net, but you'd be better off to just go to Home Power and pay the annual fee, it isn't expensive, then you can research back issues at their website and read any articles in the past, including the one on solar panels. Good luck, and take care...Rudydoo
What Items Use Solar Panels?
How Do They Use Them Too? Best Answer Will Be Chosen!
Technically any item can use solar energy. To understand why you must understand how solar energy works.
A solar panel can use different materials (Poly-crystalline, mono-crystaline, etc.) This material along with the polarity between the front and back side of the solar cell turns sunlight into an electrical current. After connecting enough of these cells to get the amount of power you need there are multiple ways to harness this energy.
Solar panels produce DC (direct current) electricity, this is the type that is stored by batteries such as phones, ipod's, and even car batteries. However, your house runs on AC (alternating Current) electricity. The method I use for home installation is to run the current from the Solar Panel into a charge controller, the charge controller keeps you from overcharging your battery and destroying it. Then from the charge controller the current is then put into a battery backup bank. This battery backup bank will store the energy until the sunlight is no longer producing the power that the house is calling for. From the battery you must then use a inverter. The inverter changes the "DC" power to "AC" power making it usable for the home.
There are different ways to run the power into your home or back into the grid system and even get paid for the energy you make.
