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 resident to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c, washing clothes, watching 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 ecological advantages of solar power are significant, many residents discover that the convenience, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Leading Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably minimize or perhaps remove your electric bills
Whether you're a property owner, business, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can make up a large part of your month-to-month costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce complimentary 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 reduce your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.
#2 Earn a fantastic return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity bill cost savings, the typical American property owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical power rates have actually increased by an average of 3 percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and protect against unpredictable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're a service or house owner with ever-changing money circulation, going solar also helps you much better projection and manage your expenses.
#4 Increase your property worth
Multiple research studies have actually discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater property values and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for homes geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial element of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price fluctuations in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a terrific way to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will get rid of three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are very important elements of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that opt to operate properly. Organisations are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of consumer acquiring decisions, developing goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Many property owners decide to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar provider for electricity-- 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 notorious for their changing and undependable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and basic math, we can determine what does it cost? electrical power will be created, and most notably, at exactly what price, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).
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
You Place Four Identical Solar Panels In 4 Places.?
The First Panel Is Located In New England, The Second Is Placed In The Sahara Desert, The Third Is On The Earth Side Of The Moon, And The Last Is On The Far Side Of The Moon. Which Panel Would Absorb The Most Sunlight Over A Year'S Time And Why ?
All The Panels Are Place In Optimal Places Where They Would Get The Most Light Available.
Well, as always, context is important. Sunlight is composed of a lot of different types and wavelengths of energy, and our atmosphere and magnetoshpere filter out a certain amount. If the question is actually which solar panel would produce the most energy (which I assume it is), we would have to look at how solar panels work.
There are three different classes of solar panel function. Photovoltaic cells convert sunlight directly into electrical energy, but most systems are pretty low on efficiency. Solar cells can be used for generating heat, through boiling water or some other liquid frequently. And solar panels can be used to produce chemical reactions, breaking down solutions into ions, for example, and the breaking of the molecular bonds releases a certain amount of energy.
So theoretically, the two sides of the moon get the same amount of solar energy, just at different times -- about 6 months of the year or so. If the solar panels were thermal energy panels, the ones on the Earth would do much better, because the moon is so much colder.
The weather is the most convincing argument for comparing the Sahara and New England. New England is likely to be more cloudy and polluted than the Sahara.
Since the Earth probably eclipses the moon a bit more often than the reverse, there may be a little more visible sunlight that gets to earthly solar panels, but the ones on the moon would get a greater proportion of the sunlight (more wavelengths, for example), so it would be close. The Earth eclipses only the near face of the moon, so that would give the far side of the moon a slight edge perhaps.
I'd guess it would be the far-side lunar one, but too many variables to be sure.
Why Did Reagan Remove Carter'S Solar Panels At The White House?
Carter Went On And On All About Energy Independence And How We Should Not Only Get Off Middle East Oil, But Off Of Oil Completely But Everyone Turned Up Their Noses Or Just Ignored Him.
Is This Because Carter Was Inept As A Prez, Or Was The Whole Usa Irresonsible Back Then???
The US had just come through a massive oil shortage in the late 70's, if you look for old pics you can see cars lined up for miles waiting to fill up. Carter was a weak president, but was thinking ahead of his time, looking to the future and what was going to happen when the world was no longer capable of supporting our energy demands. Reagan was a moron who was essentially a speaking puppet for right-wing republicans, who preached material things were required to make America strong again, and ecology and environmentalism were put on the back-burner in order to advance these goals.

How To Calculate Solar Panel Hourly Power Output?
I'M Trying To Think Of A Way To Calculate The Power Output Of A Solar Panel By Taking In Information From Hourly Weather Data From Weather.Com (E.G. Sunny Or Cloudy?, Temperature, Etc.) And Basic Characteristics Of The The Location And Panels, But I Cannot Find Or Think Of A Way To Do So. Basically, My Final Output Would Be A List Of Power Outputs From Hour 0 To 23. Hour 0 Will Have A Power Output, Hour 1 Will Have A Certain Output, Etc. Does Anyone Have Any Ideas As To How I Can Accomplish This Task.
You'd probably need energy measurement sensors both above the clouds and at ground level (simultaneously) at some point, and compare the masking effect the clouds have on solar energy reaching the ground, in comparison to whatever descriptions weather.com chooses to use. I'm not sure where you could get that data (which is certainly not to say that it doesn't exist).
Question About Portable Solar Panels.. Mine Is 12V?
I Have Had This 12V Portable Solar Panel For My Apartment For Awhile. Only Problem Is That I Have No Balcony And I Can Barely Get Enough Sun To Use It With My Cobra 450 400-800 Watt Outlet Converter. Can Someone Advise Me A Better Method To Use These? Like Do I Have To Get More 12V Solar Panels? I Have A Small Apartment And Use It On One Window. Also Is It Possible For Me To Buy A Portable Storage Tank To Store The Energy Gathered From The Sun By The Solar Panel?
How many watts is the panel, and how many watts is the device you are powering and how long is it on a day? Let's say it's a 40W stereo that's on 3 hours a day. 40Wx3hours = 120Watt hours.
Now let's figure how much power the solar panel makes. If it is a 30W panel and gets 4 sun hours a day (not hours of sun, this is how long it gets the equivalent of a standard test condition), it probably gets closer to 2.5 or 3 sun hours in the winter, depending on where you are. 30W x 4 sun hours = 120Watt hours. Perfect, except there are losses in the system, so you need to figure around 30% loss overall, which brings you to 84wh. That's too small for your load.
A 12V sealed AGM battery can be used to store the power. You'd also need to calculate the size needed for that.
There is a calculator available to do a lot of this math for you. You need to figure out your load first, then enter the wh in this calculator. It will tell you what size panel and battery you need. http://www.altestore.com/store/calculato...
