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 air conditioning system, cleaning clothes, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while lowering 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 substantial, lots of property owners discover that the benefit, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically minimize or perhaps eliminate your electrical bills
Whether you're a house owner, company, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can comprise a big portion of your monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your energy bills and you'll still save a great deal of cash.
#2 Make a terrific return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power expense cost savings, the average American property owner settles their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical energy costs have gone up by an average of three percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and safeguard versus unpredictable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a company or property owner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and handle your costs.
#4 Increase your house worth
Multiple studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater property values and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for homes geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate variations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a terrific way to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings 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 get rid of three to 4 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are crucial parts of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding organisations that select to run properly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of consumer buying choices, developing goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving 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 money down.
Numerous house owners select to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
Since 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 infamous for their changing and undependable electricity rates. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can compute how much electrical energy will be produced, and most significantly, at what price, for at least the next Twenty 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
- $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

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
Questions About Solar Panels For Residential Use?
How Much Do You Think It Would Cost For Installation?
I Heard That Solar Panels Can Store Electricity And Any Excess Electricity Gets Sold Back To The Electric Company. How Much Money Can A Home Owner Make From Doing This?
Do You Think Solar Panels Are Worth It?
If you're in a sunny area, and the cost of electricity is high, solar panels can be worth it. But it's not a big moneymaker, it's something that pays back over long timeframes. We live in northern California, and our system is about break even, but that's because our electricity usage was low to begin with. If you want to see our system, look at the web page in my profile.
Are panels worth it in your area? The only way to know for sure is to find a local installer in your phone book, and then ask for local references. If you can't find a local installer, that's a clue, and if they can't give you any references that are nearby, that's another clue.
The panels don't actually store energy, the energy is sold back to the power company when what you produce is more than you consume, driving the meter backwards. Again, this is not a big moneymaker, and in fact, it may be impossible to make a profit, depending on your local laws.
How Do Solar Panels Work?
Ive Tried Reaserching It But I Never Get A Clear Answer Or The Answer Is For Insiders Who Work With This.
When light hits the semiconductors in the panel, the electrons absorb the energy and are knocked free from the atoms and flow freely in one direction to create an electric current.
Why Are Solar Panels So Expensive?
It Is Very Convenient For Power Companies That We Can Not Get Free Power From Sun.
Is It A Real Technological Problem Or It Is Only A Political Issue?
Because producing solar cells requires lots of fossil fuel derived energy, more than they produce during their life, in most cases!
Why Do People Think Solar Power Is Energy Efficent?
At Cost It Runs 3 To 1
But A Old Fashioned Heat Pump Runs 5 To 1 , And The Amount Of Crap That Goes Into Solar Panel Construction Out Ways The Total Benefits And Finally The Things Are Nearly Impossible To Repair Compared To Heat Pumps , So The Panel Is Scrapped And A New One Fitted
Your use of Solar Power is kind of vague. Passive systems are very efficient because if they are set up right, they use virtually no power, or can be rigged to run on nothing.
The most basic of basic is just letting the sun come though a south facing window during the day. I have even seen jars of water and rock boxes used to retain heat for the evening hours.
I think you are going on about PV systems that generate electricity. They vary in performance, and performance can vary on installation. If you mount them on moving platform that can follow the sun, you will get the most use, or efficiency out of them. To complicate, you just cannot hook these things to your house. All have to go though a conversion to AC, and the equipment used can effect that efficiency as well. In short, it would be hard to judge what your basing your figures on until you specify the exact set up, the stated outputs, the actual outputs, the entire set up, and where you live.

It would be more expensive than the average solar panel. For one its experimental and second its about 300% more effective than solar panels. Plants use 90% of the sunlight that hits them, solar panels only use 30
