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 home owners to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, cleaning clothing, seeing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, numerous property owners find that the benefit, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Leading Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically decrease or even remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a property owner, business, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can make up a large part 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 One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your utility bills and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity costs savings, the average American house owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, property electricity prices have gone up by approximately 3 percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard against unforeseeable increases in electricity expenses. If you're an organisation or house owner with rising and falling capital, going solar also helps you much better forecast and handle your expenditures.
#4 Boost your residential or commercial property worth
Multiple studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher home worths and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key part of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price changes in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar market included jobs 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 development is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a terrific way to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A common residential 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 essential components of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that decide to run properly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are an effective driver of customer purchasing choices, producing goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Saving 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.
Lots of homeowners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar service provider 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 varying and undependable electrical power rates. There is plainly an upward trend.
With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can determine what does it cost? electrical energy will be produced, and most notably, at exactly what price, for at least 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
- 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
Can I Charge A 6 Volt Golf Cart Battery With 36 Volt Solar Panel?
Will Too Many Volts Harm The Battery? It'S A 6V Deep Cycle Battery, But Do I Need A Downstep Transformer Or Is This Not A Problem?
Solar Panel- 136 Watts 36V-42V (Depending On Sun)
The current will be limited by the internal resistance of the panel. Transformers don't work with DC.
With those numbers, the current would probably be limited to somewhere in the 2-4 amp range. I don't know the size of the battery, but this would probably not harm it, as this is probably only a trickle charge.
However, most of the energy from the panel would be wasted under those conditions. the 136 watts winds up as 24 watts into the battery, the rest wasted as heat in the solar panel. In fact, the panel may not work well under those conditions, it may overheat.
A good charge controller (an electronic box) will adjust the output voltage and input voltage to maximize the transfer to the battery and also prevent overcharging.
edit: downstepper? interesting term. Actually it is a DC-DC converter that converts 24 to 12 volts. But the specs say the input can't go above 28 volts, so that is not the proper device, it would burn out. And it would damage the battery aksi, And you want an output tailored for charging a battery, not a fixed voltage.
Again, get a charge controller that is specified for your battery voltage and size. they present the proper load to the solar panel to get the most power out of it, and also control the battery charging to charge it at the proper rate.
Can Solar Panels Help Stop Global Warming?
Since Solar Panels Work By Converting Light Into Electricity, Wouldn'T That Heat Coming From Sunlight Actually Be Captured By The Solar Panels, Or Will The Energy In The Form Of Heat Not Be Consumed Solar Panels?
The only thing they do is replace other forms of power generation, like fossil fuels. For that, they help stop global warming.
It doesn't matter if the light is converted to heat or electricity. Eventually, all energy ends up as heat, like your TV or microwave. And all that light is shining down on the surface of the Earth whether or not a solar panel is underneath it.
Why Are The Conservatives So Anti Environmental?
Jimmy Carter Put Up Solar Panels At The White House . When Reagan Got Elected He Took Them Down. Now All You Non Believers Want To Build More Soot Spewing Coal Fired Power Plants.I Don'T Get It, Why Are You So Against Renewable Energy? As In Solar, And Wind Generated Energy.
I don't get it either - even if you don't believe in global warming, do you really think all of these things like factories are good for the environment? It just seems like common sense to use things that don't have such detrimental effects.
Why Have Not So Many Americana'S Switched To Solar Heating?
Fossil Fuels Will Be Running Out. They Are Not Enviornmental Friendly To The Enviornment. The Cutting Of Trees For Fuel Takes The Oxygen Out Of The Air Of The Earth. The Ozone Layer Is Disappering Slowly. Smog And Pollution Are Not Creating Havoc With Personnal Health And Causing A Crisises In Cancer Risk. They Also Create Acid Rain That Destroys The Oxgenating Plants And Food Sources In Which We Eat.
Solar Heating Is Cheaper And Pays For Itself After Installation. Federal And State Governments Offer Incentives For Heating Credits And Enviornmental Tax Credits For Installing Solar Or Wind Energy.
Farmers Can Recieve Agricultural Grants.Public And Non Profits Will Receive Tax Incentives For Solar Systems.
Would You Switch To Solar Energy ,And If Not Why ?
Would You Like To Have A Lesser Electric And Heating Bill ?
Would You Like To Resell Back The Energy You Created To The Power Companie?
This Is A Poll For My College Paper. Please Assist In My Poll.
Up until very recently solar panels were not very efficient, and you would have to cover your whole house with panels and still need power from the power company, all with a large up front financial investment. This has discouraged the move to solar. It is changing rapidly, and when the ratio moves enough in the other direction so that when you switch you will no longer need to buy power and can in many instances sell your surplus back to the power grid, you can bet the change will happen fast.
Is It Possible To Have Transparent Solar Panels That Can Act As Windows? Is It Safe?
not as windows itself but part of the architecture
