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 air conditioning unit, cleaning clothing, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, many property owners discover that the benefit, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically decrease or perhaps eliminate your electric expenses
Whether you're a house owner, service, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can comprise a big part of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate 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 lower your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of money.
#2 Earn a great return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity expense savings, the typical American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the past ten years, property electrical energy costs have increased by approximately 3 percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard against unpredictable increases in electricity costs. If you're an organisation or homeowner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise helps you better projection and manage your costs.
#4 Increase your home value
Numerous studies have actually discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher property worths and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for homes geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial element of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost changes in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar market included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is an excellent way to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will get rid of 3 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 duty are very important parts of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding organisations that opt to run properly. Organisations are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of customer acquiring decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing service results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no money down.
Numerous house owners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar supplier for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses 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 electricity prices. There is plainly an upward trend.
With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can determine what does it cost? electricity will be created, and most significantly, 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
Building Solar Panel What Is The Most Effective One And Chippest?
Hi , I Am From Argentina.
The Prostitue We Have As A President Dediced To Get Electricity Bill 400 % Higher.
So, What Is A Good Way To Start Getting Everything With Solar Energy, I Have Seem Somebody Doing A Solar Panel With Black Painted Cans Of Soda. What Other Alternatives Do I Have.
Javier, those black painted cans were most likely for a passive collector to get heat from the sun. This is one way of using solar energy. This leads into a vast array of applications. There are units that reflect the sun light into a narrow beam that is a few millimeters thick, but is as long as the reflector is with the light focused on a pipe that carries water, or some other working fluid to where the heated fluid is to be used. If done properly, and safely, you could make water into steam to drive a turbine to make electricity. That, however, requires tracking systems to keep the reflectors pointed at the sun. The best way, least expensive of any, but still will be expensive to set up, is photo=voltiac panels. These absorb sunlight and turn it into electricity. These should be used to charge batteries for the time when the sun is not out, or at night. Within practical limits, your battery bank can not be to big. Trying to make your own photo-voltiac panels is out of the question. Those silican wafers from which the electricity producing panels are made require special manufacturing processes, which unless you are extremely rich, are beyond your means. You will need to buy such panels, and yes, they are expensive. That is out weighed by how long they will last, which barring physical damage, or a high enough reverse voltage applied to them, those panels should last for 20 or more years. Good luck with what you want to do. Begin small and work up to a large system, as large as you need it to be.
I Want To Use Solar Energy In My Workshop Which Has Some Welding Machines.What Type Of Solar Panels Do I Use?
You want a grid tie solar power system being you already have the grid or you could not use the welders right now.
The idea is back feed the grid. You would want to balance out your power usage with solar. You do not have to be able to run every thing in your shop with solar. You run everything from the local utility and allow the solar no matter how large or small to offset the power usage. If you are not using much power the solar will supply all your needs and the extra will turn your meter backwards saving you a little money. Plus that makes anyone on the utility grid use solar power because you are feeding it into the system.

I Want To Provide Solar Power And Heated Water To A 1500Sqft Home For A Family Of 4, What Do I Need?
If Building From Scratch What Components Do I Need And How Much Would It Cost?
You'll need to determine how much electricity you will ever need. Will you expect to do some heating? If you're using electric then you'll need to factor that into the size as well. Also, if you're not planning on connecting to the electric grid, then you'll need to determine how much energy you'll need for several cloudy days in a row - and size your system so that you can make that much energy in one sunny day.
Once you have the size of the system you'll need, you can figure on paying between $7 and $10 per watt for the solar system - not including batteries. The components you'll need will be solar electric panels and connectors. You'll need an inverter if you're planning on wiring your house for AC power. If you're going off grid, you'll likely want to look at DC appliances and save on inverter costs.
I've done a quick calc below, just for kicks.
National average household electric use was about 10,500 kWh in 2001. Let's assume that you'll be really energy efficient in your choice of appliances and knock that back to 8000 kWh per year.
Let's also assume, just for kicks, that this electric use will be evenly consumed over the whole year. That means you'll use about 22 kWh per day. This is certainly not true, but it at least gives us a starting point for our costing.
You'll be able to harvest solar power for a maximum of about 5 hours per day, on average (a bit more or less, depending on where you live). So you'll need at least 4400 watts of solar power. At a cost of $7 per watt, that means you'll be paying roughly $30,000, not including batteries, to set up your system.
For comparison, to purchase 10,500 kWh of electricity from the utility, at a price of perhaps 12 cents per kWh, you'd pay $1300 per year in electric costs.
I know that all these costs are wrong, but sometimes it is helpful to get an idea of the relative cost and savings of different options, just so you understand what you're dealing with. Your system will NOT cost less than $30,000, probably quite a bit more. You will almost certainly not pay MORE than $1300 per year in electric costs if you choose not to install the solar system.
If, with all this said, you are still interested in a solar system, then I would find a local vendor and start getting some sizing and costing information from them. Two good resources for finding local vendors of solar systems are below
Hope this helped.
