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 utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c unit, washing clothing, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, numerous home owners find that the convenience, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically lower or perhaps eliminate your electrical costs
Whether you're a homeowner, business, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can make up a big part of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your energy costs and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.
#2 Earn a great return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity costs cost savings, the typical American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy rates. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical power rates have increased by approximately 3 percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect against unforeseeable increases in electricity costs. If you're a business or homeowner with changing capital, going solar also helps you better projection and handle your expenditures.
#4 Boost your home worth
Numerous studies have discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher home worths and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties equipped 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 accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price changes in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy
According to The Solar Structure, 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 jobs in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is an excellent way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A normal domestic photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 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 elements of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that pick to operate properly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of consumer buying choices, creating goodwill and enhancing business results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Numerous house owners opt to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar provider 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 Investment
The energy business are notorious for their varying and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic mathematics, we can calculate how much electricity will be generated, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).
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

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
How Do I Build An Electric Scooter With A Rechargeable Battery Or Solar Panels? Is Solar Or Rechargable Better
I'D Like To Have The Scooter Cost Less Than About $1000 To Make.
If you are asking this question here it's probably too dangerous for you to try this by yourself.
For your second question though, there is no reason that a scooter couldn't be both solar AND rechargeable, and that is probably how you'd want to do it anyway. The solar cells would recharge the battery, but since you wouldn't have room to put enough solar cells on a scooter to keep it powered up all the time you would need to plug it in every so often to keep it charged up.
If you must go with one or the other then solar is not practical by itself, the sun is not always shining and you could not fit enough cells on a scooter to keep it running at more than a crawl.
Why Aren'T We Mass Producing Solar Panels?
Do you mean "We" as in the USA, or "We" as in the human species in general?
There's a few companies making panels in the US, but their prices can't compete with the panels from China. The Chinese companies can sell them so cheaply because they're being heavily subsidized by the Chinese government.
While more and more panels are being installed, it's still fairly expensive. The average cost for a home system is around $15k-$20k and that's after the tax breaks. That gives the system an ROI of about 7 to 10 years.
Also, while solar panels provide green energy, their manufacturing process is far from green. In fact they're pretty toxic.
If You Want To Rely On Solar Electricity Exclusively, How Many Solar Panels Will You Need To Buy?
Solar Energy Is One Of The Most Important Components Of A Renewable Energy Future. Your Parents Are Considering Installing Photovoltaic Cells, Which Convert The Sun’S Energy Directly Into Electricity, On Their Roof, And Have Asked For Your Help. You Do Some Research And Learn That, On A Sunny Day In Idaho, Sunlight At The Earth’S Surface Provides About 0.75 Kilowatt/M2. Solar Panels Have An Area Of 0.5 Square Meter, Operate At 10% Efficiency, And Cost $63. Your Parents Use Electricity At A Rate Of 2 Kw.
1. If Your Parents Want To Rely On Solar Electricity Exclusively, How Many Solar Panels Will They Need To Buy? How Big Must Their Roof Be (In Feet) To Hold The Array Of Panels?
2. If Electricity Costs $0.08 Per Kilowatt-Hour, How Long Will It Take Your Parents To Recoup Their Initial Investment?
Since there are 24 hours in a day, to be completely off-grid you also need battery back-up, a charge converted, and an inverter.
Buut I digress.
I think the questin is asking how to generate peak power of 2 kw
1 solar panel generate
for 2 kw
the square footage is 27 m^2
291 square feet.
the cost is 54*63
at 2 kw/hr
Are Solar Panels And Wind Turbines Really Manufactured From Oil?
I Heard Somewhere That Solar Panels And Wind Turbines Are Manufactured From Oil Is This True ?
Probably so, since plastics are made from oil. However, manufacturing the items used to generate power is a one time thing. This is far better than burning fossil fuels on an ongoing basis to generate power.
How Do Solar Pannels Work?
Pls Answer This Question In A Paragraph. I Need Some Help! Thanks A Lot!!:):):):):):):)
Silicon is mounted beneath non-reflective glass to produce photovoltaic panels. These panels collect photons from the sun, converting them into DC electrical power. The power created then flows into an inverter. The inverter transforms the power into basic voltage and AC electrical power.
That is a very brief explanation, but some may prefer a more in depth answer the question, “How do solar panels work?” Here is the more detailed response, though it still remains fairly basic:
To start off, it is crucial that silicon be better explained. Silicon has four electrons in its outer shell. However, it has the capacity rto hold eight. By sharing these four electrons with other silicon atoms and their four shell electrons, the capacity of eight is filled. When they combine with each other in this way, silicon atoms develop a strong, stable bond. This structure is known as pure, crystalline silicon.
Of course, this pure silicon is a poor conductor of electricity, as there are no electrons free to move about. In other words, the silicon is better off with impurities. To create these impurities, silicon is combined with something else.
When silicon combines with an element that has five electrons to share, such as phosphorus, a negative charge is created. Silicon can only take four of the five electrons. This leaves one free electron looking for a spot. These additional electrons are known as free carriers; they carry an electrical current.
On the other hand, when silicon is combined with an element that has three electrons a positive charge is created. Boron is a material which suits this purpose. When silicon and boron are combined, holes are created.
These silicon combinations and their differing charges are used to make solar panels. As photons come down from the sunlight and strike the silicon, it shakes everything up. The free electron that was hanging onto the silicon/phosphorous combination is now forced to the outer ring. From here, it gets sucked up to the outer ring of the silicon/boron combination. This is how electricity is created.
