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 property owner to use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioner, cleaning clothes, watching TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, lots of property owners find that the convenience, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Leading Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably minimize or perhaps eliminate your electric bills
Whether you're a property owner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can make up a big part of your regular monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your energy costs and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.
#2 Earn a great return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy expense cost savings, the average American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the previous ten years, property electrical power rates have gone up by approximately 3 percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect against unforeseeable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a business or property owner with rising and falling money flow, going solar also assists you better projection and handle your costs.
#4 Increase your home value
Numerous research studies have discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider 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 element of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A common property photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are important elements of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding services that opt to operate responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of consumer buying choices, creating goodwill and enhancing organisation results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Numerous homeowners pick to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The energy companies are notorious for their changing and undependable electricity costs. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate just how much electrical energy will be generated, and most notably, at what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired 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
- 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

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
Does Anyone Know The Average Cost To Install A Solar Panel And Wind Power System?
How Much Will It Cost For A Working Solar Panel And Working Wind Mill?
I can tell you how much my system cost. The total was $26K, but I got a $10K rebate from my utility and I'll receive a $2K tax credit. Next year the fed. tax credit will increase to 30% of the total cost. I have a 3.75kwh system with 19 panels. I generate over 75% of my electricity in the summer and so far this winter I'm still at about 50%.
Just to give you an idea of the savings, I should break even in my 6th year. The system is guaranteed for 25 years, so I'll be getting at least 18 years of free energy. My highest bill in the summer was under $20 and I haven't seen a bill above $35 since they were installed.
Where you live, the direction your home faces and shade factors will determine how much energy you can generate. Getting 1-2 years of usage history will help determine what size system will work best for you. I suggest contacting a local licensed contractor and having them give you a free no obligation bid. That is the best way to see what is possible and the costs for your specific situation.
Why Is The Surface Of A Solar Heater Panel Black?
Things are black because they reflect very little or no light. Absorbing all of this light causes an object to become warm, and so solar heaters are best to be made black.
Seriously, Are There Really Any Practical Applications For Solar Panel Generated Electricity?
We Have Known For Years That Solar Cells Have Been Useful For Powering Traffic Control Signs, Wristwatches, Cellphones, And Even Laptops. Are Their Really Any Useful, Practical, Applications For Solar Generated Electrical Power Today?
Being such a practical person you are unlikely to go by ship when you could fly. Flying you are unlikely to survive a landing at sea. Although someone in a life raft in the middle of the ocean may curse the sun but with solar distillation devices now fairly standard they might survive longer than any batteries would land.
You might use an 18 wheeler to kill flys but a flyswatter is probably a more efficient tool. Likewise solar thermal panels are far more efficient than solar electrical panels and far better suited to general heating, hot water heating and air conditioning. Concentrated solar thermal energy is being used in all the new largest solar electrical installations. These installations incorporate heat storage in thermal salts to allow for 24/7 operation.
Solar air panels remain the cheapest way to capture solar energy for heating. It is the same principal that has been used in greenhouses, solar rooms, passive solar houses and from designing these environments we have a better understanding of thermal mass to store heat energy.
Direct sunlight to electricity is the specialty of solar photovoltaic panels. It has a limited range where it is most useful. These tend to be were there is less infrastructure and lightness and simplicity are more highly valued. There are growing applications in Solar cars and electric aircraft as well as some survival and wilderness equipment. Solar panels for homeowners can be cost effective particularly in areas not supplied with grid electricity. Many boats are now charging their batteries with solar panels rather than running the engines for the same purpose.
How Many Wind Turbines And Solar Panels Does The World Need To Replace Coal, Oil And Nuclear Power?
I Heard The Wind Turbines, Solar Panels So Far Provide America With Around 2% Of Our Energy. So Since Liberals Appear To Want To Replace Natural Energy With Man Made Products, That Cause Massive Pollution By The Way To Make- How Long Will That Take 30 Years, 100 Years? How Many Wind Turbines Will Airplanes And Birds And Parachute Jumpers Smash Into, Isn'T That A Problem? How Do We Rid Of Natural Energy Before We Have The Liberal Back Up Plan - We Don'T Really Have ?
How Do They Think This Is Gonna Work? Its Not Logical, We Need To Come Up With More Ideas!
That Battery Idea Kinda Sucks Since Batteries Need Natural Energy To Work.
Wow you "heard" this and you "heard" that-I heard that it isn't dangerous to build a nuclear reactor that can only withstand a 7.5 earthquake a half mile from the San Andreas fault-just a little bit more false con propaganda. I wonder if they're rethinking that little nugget...
BTW little genius-wind and solar are "natural" energy; coal must be mined and processed which is a tremendously polluting process even before it's burned as fuel, which is not natural. Same with the nuclear materials used in nuke plants, except it's an even dirtier process. Your contention that the production of solar panels and wind turbines is more polluting than coal or nukes is more than simply false-it's ridiculous. Finally, just because your uninformed brain can't conceive of how a sustainable power grid would work doesn't mean there's not a plan in place, or that it can't work. I suggest you inform yourself further on this subject, the information is cleverly concealed in books.
Ahh, the geniuses are out in force today..."Woofy", where do you think the energy to run those electric motors is going to come from? Fairies? Elves? Reddy Kilowatt?
"golden", you answered your own question-solar systems ARE better now and have steadily been improving since their inception and have become more affordable smaller, lighter and far more efficient. Too bad the government chose not to fund solar research in favor of giving welfare to oil companies-we'd be even farther along and the systems would be even better.
"hotshot", I don't mind $4 gas at all; the last gas crunch in 2008 led to a dramatic reduction in driving by Americans as well as increased interest in and purchases of fuel efficient vehicles-apparantly it's the only motivation to conserve most people will heed. Why else do I not mind? My husband and I own a (16 year old) car that gets 30MPG city, 34MPG freeway, we (purposely planned to) live within a 3 mile radius of our jobs, we consider carefully the necessity of car trips and plan them to reduce the numbers of miles we drive and we practice hypermiling. Guess what? We fill our 10 gallon tank every other week. Again, that's ten gallons of gas for two weeks of driving-therefore I have no need to whine about $4 a gallon gas,.
Which Career Should I Chose?
Ok Well I Would Like A Career Either In Automotives Or Power Plants. I Heard Rights Now The Automotive Field Isn'T Doing Very Good, So I Am Really Leaning Towards Becoming A Power Plant Operator.
I Would Like To Work With Solar Panels Or Wind Turbines. I Just Love The Fact That They Are Providing Power The Clean And Safe Way. I Would Really Want To Work In A Solar Power Plant, But I Don'T Know If There Is Such A Thing.
What Are Some Careers Related To What I Have Stated Above?
Go for the Power plants. It's a job that doesn't seem to be going out of demand any time soon, and it probably will be in high demand in the future soon.
