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 air conditioning system, washing clothes, viewing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are substantial, many homeowners find that the convenience, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically minimize or even eliminate your electric bills
Whether you're a property owner, organization, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a large 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 One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility expenses and you'll still save a lot of money.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity bill cost savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against increasing 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 power costs have actually increased by an average of 3 percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect versus unpredictable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're a business or homeowner with fluctuating money circulation, going solar also assists you better projection and handle your costs.
#4 Boost your property worth
Numerous research studies have discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher home worths and offer more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
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 capacity to create electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price changes in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar market included jobs at a rate nearly 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 jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a great method to decrease 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 typical domestic solar panel system will eliminate three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are necessary parts of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that decide to run responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of consumer buying decisions, producing goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Many homeowners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility companies are infamous for their fluctuating and undependable electrical energy prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and simple math, we can calculate how much electrical energy will be generated, and most notably, at what price, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).
What are the various payment options?

Frequently Asked Questions
How Is Solar Energie Transformed From 12 Volts Dc Into 120 Or 220 Volts Ac?
I Am Talking Of A Solar Park With Hundreds Of Panels.
Via an inverter, which you can buy at many places.
The inverter uses power transistors and a transformer to convert the 12 volts DC to AC and raise it to the proper voltage level.
Is Solar Panels For A House Worth It?
Yes, yes, and yes! I had Arosa Energy come and give me an estimate and within a week they had the panels installed quick and neatly done. We're now seeing our bills go down and it's mind boggling how much we're saving! I would suggest you take it serious. Happy saving!
Is There A Way To Charge A Solar Panel Without The Sun? I Know There Has Got To Be A Way!!!?
Any light source can be used for a solar panel to produce Electricity such as a lighted room. Like what amanssci said it is not of much use accept for small gadgets such watches and calculaters which uses solar cells.
How To Make Solar Cells Or Panel And How I Can Store Energy Generated By Solar Panel?
There are several videos online that will give you a general idea of how th make solar panels. There are more in-depth guides available that teach you the entire process, step-by-step.
The energy collected by the sopar panel is stored in one or more batteries (depending on the size and scope of your system) then flows through a converter that converts the DC power into AC power for use in your home.
Are Solar Panels A Viable Option In Il?
I'Ve Been Thinking And I'D Like To Have Solar Panels Installed On My Roof At Some Point To Help Reduce Our Electricity Consumption- But I Live In Il And In The Winter It Frequently Snows. Is There Such A Thing As Heated Solar Panels So They Don'T Get Coated W/Ice Or Snow? Are Solar Panels Even A Feasible Option In Il? Thank You, Anna
Absolutely you can have solar panels in IL, there Anna. I am from Rochester, NY so I am a little familiar with frequent snowfalls! Plus my In Laws have solar panels and they live just outside of Chicago. (Oak Park sounds familiar, but I cant for the life of me remember the name of their community) Check with your local building department as to what you may have to do to your existing roof, as the panels and its necessary roof bracing can be quite heavy. Add a good Lake Michigan snowfall to an already heavy roof and you could have yourself a big problem!
In better news many utilities and states around the country provide financial subsidies and incentives that along with the subsidies from those from the Federal Government greatly reduce the initial cost and speed up the amount of time it takes for you to recoup your initial investment.
Solar panels by their very nature are warm, as they absorb the light from the sun. The latitude for IL is such that the solar panels on your roof will be tilted so much that the only way snow can build up is if there such a snowfall on your roof that its accumulation rises above the solar panels. There is no such thing as heated solar panels and you can very easily have solar panels in climates ranging from the Carribean to Northern Canada/Alaska. If you get serious about solar energy give a company called Sun Electronics a call. I know it may sound lame but my in-laws used them for their house and have been quite happy with the outcome. My In laws (at times) are cheap and are not an easy crowd to please.....but again are very happy with their outcome!
