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 conditioner, cleaning clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, lots of homeowners find that the convenience, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Leading Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically minimize or perhaps eliminate your electrical expenses
Whether you're a property owner, service, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can make up a large part of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your energy costs and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.
#2 Earn a fantastic return on your investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity expense cost savings, the average American property owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against increasing energy expenses
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, residential electrical power costs have gone up by an average of 3 percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard against unforeseeable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a company or house owner with ever-changing money circulation, going solar also helps you much better projection and manage your expenses.
#4 Boost your home or business value
Numerous studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater home values and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, need for residential or commercial properties 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 component of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost variations in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard 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 considerably reduce that number. A typical residential solar panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are very important elements of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding organisations that decide to operate properly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of consumer buying choices, producing goodwill and improving organisation results.
#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 money down.
Many house owners select to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar company 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 utility companies are well-known for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can determine what does it cost? electricity will be created, and most significantly, at exactly what cost, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).

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 Electricity Panels Do They Work?
I Already Have Solar/Gas Water Heating, But Was Wondering If Getting Solar Panels For Electricity Installed Was A Good Idea.
Why of course. Just buying them is the big buzz.
Companies are doing thousands if not millions of dollars a month only by selling Solar Panel.
I did a little search and I found that it costs 7000$ to install solar panels for an average roof.
If you're a hardcore green, then Bon Appétit, I'm not preventing you to buy it. All I'm just saying is that it'll take months if not years to get that money back.
It is good for electricity, and I saw it worked on a company building called Better Place, so save the world!
What Do I Need For Off Grid Solar Energy System?
I Know You Need The Panel,Power Inverter A Deep Cycle 12 Volt Rechargeable Battery What Else Would I Need?
This probably isn't the venue to ask.
You'll need solar panels,
A large battery or set of batteries,
And an inverter to create AC.
"a deep cycle 12 volt rechargeable battery" won't be enough.
A 100 amp hour battery can store 1.2 KwH.
A house can easily use far more than that.
Our grid connected system generated about 27 Kwh a day for the past week.
That's more than we used, but we'll catch up this week because it's going to be 100 degrees and we'll have the AC on.
But you have to plan for winter when you can have several days with little or no sun and not a lot of sun even when it is shining.
So there are several things to consider:
- Where you are
- How many days you're likely to go with little or no sun in the winter
- How many days are you willing to do without electricity
- Whether you're going to get a supplemental gas or diesel generator
- How much electricity you're likely to use when everything is running
- How well you can mount solar panels, facing south, with no obstructions
My guess would be that if you're asking here, you probably need to pay someone to design the system for you.
How Long Until Solar Power (Solar Panels) Becomes Cheap?
Between 5 and 15 years.
Current thin film technology, which is the current hope for inexpensive solar panels, are just starting to get commericalized. At the solar conferences that I've been to in the last few months, I saw no vendors actually selling thin film technology, but I saw at least two companies selling fabrication lines for them.
The presentations that I saw predict a 5 to 7 year horizen for thin film to become cost competitive with some of the more common energy production equipment. Assuming that these presentations are a bit overly optimistic, I'd suspect it might be a bit longer (but still within the forseeable future.)
Do a google on "thin film solar cost competitive" and see what comes up.
Would Solar Panels In Space Obtain More Solar Energy?
I Figured Since Theres No Ozone It'D Be Easier To Collect More. Idk How Wed Get It To Where We Need It Though
Yes, they would.
In space, solar panels can be aligned to receive a consist ant amount of direct sunlight. On Earth, the amount of direct sunlight the solar panel receives is depends on the time of year. The Earth's tilt on its axis is responsible for this. When the tilt is away, winter happens and the direct sunlight is less. When the tilt is toward, summer happens and the direct sunlight is more. Everything in between is spring and fall.
The next thing that can effect solar panels obviously, are clouds. They do make the amount of solar energy harder to obtain during the day but there are solar panels(more expensive) that can trap a higher percent of sunlight when it is cloudy.
The best parts of the earth to get the most out of solar panels are the deserts. There is only one place better than that on Earth which is anywhere the ozone layer has been depleted. Because then all of the radiation that is in space is being received on earth. Making the solar panels very efficient.
How Are Solar Panels Practical?
Okay So Im Lookin 4 An Article Which Explains How Practical, Wokable, Feasible Solar Panels Are. Only Positive Points Please :) Give Me The Link. Plz Help!!!!
Solar panels collect solar radiation from the sun and actively convert that energy to electricity. Solar panels are comprised of several individual solar cells. These solar cells function similarly to large semiconductors and utilize a large-area p-n junction diode. When the solar cells are exposed to sunlight, the p-n junction diodes convert the energy from sunlight into usable electrical energy. The energy generated from photons striking the surface of the solar panel allows electrons to be knocked out of their orbits and released, and electric fields in the solar cells pull these free electrons in a directional current, from which metal contacts in the solar cell can generate electricity. The more solar cells in a solar panel and the higher the quality of the solar cells, the more total electrical output the solar panel can produce. The conversion of sunlight to usable electrical energy has been dubbed the Photovoltaic Effect.
The photovoltaic effect arises from the properties of the p-n junction diode, as such there are no moving parts in a solar panel.
Solar Insolation and Solar Panel Efficiency
Solar Insolation is a measure of how much solar radiation a given solar panel or surface recieves. The greater the insolation, the more solar energy can be converted to electricity by the solar panel. Click to learn more about solar insolation.
Other factors that affect the output of solar panels are weather conditions, shade caused by obstructions to direct sunlight, and the angle and position at which the solar panel is installed. Solar panels function the best when placed in direct sunlight, away from obstructions that might cast shade, and in areas with high regional solar insolation ratings.
Solar panel efficiency can be optimized by using dynamic mounts that follow the position of the sun in the sky and rotate the solar panel to get the maximum amount of direct exposure during the day as possible. For more information on solar panel efficiency through the use of mounts, see our section on solar panel mounts and accessories.
