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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, cleaning clothing, seeing TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing 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 home owners discover that the benefit, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably minimize or perhaps remove your electric costs
Whether you're a homeowner, service, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can make up a large portion of your monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll create free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your energy bills and you'll still save a great deal of loan.
#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the finest methods to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy bill cost savings, the typical American house owner settles their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, property electrical power costs have increased by approximately 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard against unpredictable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a company or property owner with changing capital, going solar likewise assists you much better forecast and handle your costs.
#4 Increase your home worth
Multiple research studies have actually found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed 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 an essential part of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar market included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a terrific method to reduce 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 residential photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are important elements of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that select to run responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of consumer purchasing decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Numerous house owners pick to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar company for electrical power-- 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 Financial investment
The energy companies are well-known for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and basic mathematics, we can determine just how much electrical power will be produced, and most notably, 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.

If you like building a green house, there are very good ebooks on solar panels http://ecovivencias.blogspot.com/2010/05...
Which Is The Best Way To Arrange 3W Solar Panels? (Series Or Parallel)?
What Are The Advantages And Disadvantages Of Using Such Arrangements?
There is no disadvantage, no advantage. Which way you connect them is dependent on the operating voltage required for efficient operation of whatever you connect to them.
No matter which connection you use, the product of output voltage and current will still be the same (the power output).
Need A Relay Switch For Solar Panel...........
Suggest Me A Good Relay Switch....?
I Have Solar Panel, Charge Controller And Battery. I'M Using Diode For Blocking Reverse Current. I Believe Diodes Can Cause Power Loss. So I'M Thinking Of Relay Switch. It Should Turn On If There Is A Power Coming From Solar Panel. It Should Turn Off If There Is No Power Coming From Solar Panel...
Which Type Of Relay Is Needed?
BUY 12V COIL VOLTAGE TYPE RELAY IF YOUR SOLAR PANEL HAS 12V OUTPUT, THE CONTACT RATE FOR SMALL RELAY HAS 1A TILL 50A , THAT YOU NEED TO FIND OUT WHAT IS THE MAXIMUM CHARGING CURRENT THROUGH IT, SUPPOSE ITS IS 10A, THEN CHOOSE 20A TYPE TO MAKE THE RELAY LASTS LONG LIFE. ONE SET OF CONTACTS IS GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOUR WORK.
I Am Asking About The Solar Panels?
I Check The Diodes In The Backside Of Solar Panels It Reads Out To Be 0.433 Each Give Me The Same Result But I Was Amazed When I Check Out The Last Two One Which On Clamp Meter Screen Give Me ''0L''
What This Means? Is That Diode Have Malfunctions??Is This Reasons That The Output Of Solar Has Been Decreased? Plz Give Me Right Answer By Viewing The Image On
Details Are In Image.
Sorry but the details in the image are unreadable.
Here's what an OL can mean: Open Line, or Over Limit. It depends on the manufacturer of the meter. However, given that your meter is reading 0.433 (something - don't know if this is ohms, volts or amps) and the other (suspect) diodes are giving you a different reading - you may have to do some further testing.
Check for voltage from each side of the diode to ground. Hopefully your system is properly grounded, and you should see some voltage (DC voltage) to ground. Check it on the side without the color band (white band) then check it on the other side. The reading should be just about the same. Without a more detailed wiring diagram I can't tell for sure how those last two diodes are "In The Circuit".
A general understanding of diodes would suggest they should all read approximately the same. Since they are wired in "Diode Sets" they're probably meant to offer reverse current protection. On the right side of the picture is the positive lead, as indicated by the plus sign molded into the plastic box. So you don't have an inverter on each panel (common today). You have power going either to an inverter or to a bank of batteries that powers an inverter. But since there is an additional lead (I don't know where it comes from) bridging those two diodes, I suspect you may discover more information if you check for voltage across each diode pair.
Perhaps a better question to ask is "My PV system is malfunctioning. These are the readings I'm getting". Then detail what you are seeing.
The white band on the diode indicates the positive side of the diode. Since the positive side of the diode is to the positive side of the wiring the diodes are not used functionally to control current, except for the possibility of that third lead in the middle. Mostly they appear to be a reverse current protection.
I hope I've answered your question. As to why you're getting an OL indication - that I don't know. And Power Generation, Management & Distribution is my specialty. Been doing that for 30 years. Don't know if I can be of more help, but I'll try if I get more details on what you're doing, what you see and why you're even checking.
Best of luck with your project.
