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 dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, numerous property owners discover that the benefit, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably minimize or even eliminate your electric bills
Whether you're a house owner, service, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a big part of your month-to-month expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your energy bills and you'll still save a great deal of cash.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the finest ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power costs cost savings, the average American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical energy costs have gone up by an average of 3 percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and safeguard versus unpredictable increases in electricity costs. If you're a service or property owner with rising and falling money circulation, going solar also helps you much better forecast and handle your costs.
#4 Boost your property value
Multiple studies have actually found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater property worths and offer quicker 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 homebuyers become more informed about solar, need for homes equipped 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 attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price variations in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a fantastic 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 reduce that number. A common residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are very important components of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that decide to operate responsibly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective driver of customer buying choices, developing goodwill and improving service results.
#9 Start Saving 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 cash down.
Numerous property owners opt to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electrical energy-- 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 Investment
The utility companies are well-known for their varying and undependable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and easy math, we can compute what does it cost? electrical energy will be created, and most notably, at exactly what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired 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.
Frequently Asked Questions
Cars With Solar Panels?
I Was Reading The Popular Science Magazine And I Saw That They Might Make A Sun Powered Sailboat
Is It Absolutely Not Possible To Make A Car With A Solar Panel? I Dont See Any Harm In Making It..
How would a car with Solar Panels work in a city like London, Seattle, or Dublin, where it is cloudy and rainy more often than not? Unless there is a way to store up the solar power, I don't see it working very well.
Is Solar Energy Is Responsible For Global Warming?
Nowadays Modern World Is Thrusting Towards Renewable Energy Sources. It Is Said Renewable Energy Like Solar, Wind, Tilde Energy Are Good For Human And They Don’T Unbalance The Natural Balance. So, Modern Countries Are Going To Set Up More And More Renewable Energy Power Plants. I Have A Question About Solar Power Plants Using Pv (Photovoltaics) Cells. They Traps Energy Radiated By Electromagnetic Wave Of Sun. It Means They Store Energy From Sun. Then They Complete Leaves Energy To Our Environment. Whatever We Do With The Energy Got From Pv Cells At Last It Becomes Thermal Energy And Warms Our Environment. Suppose An Open Field Of 400 M2. The Energy Comes To This Area From Sun Most Of Them Reflected, Thus This Field Is Not Responsible For Global Warming. But If We Fill The Total Area With Pv Cells Then Most Of The Energy Will Not Be Reflected. They Will Be Trapped In Pv Cells And Will Produce Electricity And At Last Thermal Energy Will Be Produced.
Is It Responsible For Global Warming?
Yes, as it is solar energy that heats the earth.
However, using solar energy to produce electricity does not increase global warming. Contrary to your statement, most of the solar energy striking a field is not reflected. The soil and other things are heated. They give this back partly by reflection, but mostly by radiation and convection.
In a PV system, part of the sun's energy is reflected, part heats the PV panels and part is used to generate electricity.
When the electricity is used, this energy returns as heat.
Just as in the sun's energy strikes the field and is returned to the atmosphere, it does the same with PV system. The PV system does not create any energy.

Solar Usb Charger?
I'M Building A Solar Usb Charger. I Have Everything Connected And Each Solar Panel Produces .5 Volts. I Have 2 Connected. They Are Connected Through A Diode To 4 Rechargeable Aa Batteries. How Long Will It Take For Them To Fully Charge The Batteries In Direct Sunlight? How Many Can I Connect To Make It Recharge The Fastest. Each Battery Produces 1.2 Volts If That Helps.
Your question can not be answered without knowing the mAh of the panels, and the batteries, as well as knowing if the panels are connected in series or parallel. First off, I do not think they will ever charge with .5v, or 1v if connected in series. Chargers for NiMh or NiCd are typically between 1.4-1.6v output during the charging cycle.
In addition to this, if the batteries are connected in series or parallel while charging, that will effect charge time and required charge voltages.
Now to answer your question, lets say you get enough panels to bring the charging voltage to 1.5v, and that your mAh output is 50, and the batteries are 900mAh each. Lets say you are charging two at a time, and they are in parallel. That would make the required voltage to charge them 1.5v, and the total capacity 1,800mAh, so at 50mAh it would take 36 hours to fully charge. Now if you were to double the panels (need to double so you can run a 1.5v series circuit in parallel with the other) you would have a 100mAh charging circuit and it would only require 18 hours to fully charge the two batteries. You can keep adding panels, but the faster you charge a battery the less cycles it can handle. This is not a noticeable difference until you start charging them rather quickly, I would say 8-12 hour charge, maybe even 6 would give you the most charge cycles for a relatively acceptable time.
So just to sum it up, right now your setup will never charge the batteries, you need to run panels in series to get 1.4-1.6v (assuming you are charging the batteries in parallel To get the number of hours required to charge you add up the mAh output of the panels, and the mAh capacity of the batteries, then divide the batteries by the panels.
This was assuming that the panels are always putting out peak power, since they will not your calculations will only be estimates at best, and without more advanced circuitry you will never be able to tell when a battery is really 100% charged.
If you wish to charge batteries in series, then you need to have 1.4-1.6v for each battery connected, and the time it takes to charge is a single batteries capacity divided by the panels output, however I would recommend charging the batteries in parallel or one at a time.
