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 daily life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothes, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, numerous home owners find that the convenience, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically decrease or even remove your electric bills
Whether you're a homeowner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can comprise a big portion of your month-to-month expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power expense cost savings, the average American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against increasing energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, residential electricity rates have actually increased by approximately 3 percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a company or property owner with rising and falling capital, going solar also helps you much better projection and manage your expenses.
#4 Increase your residential or commercial property worth
Several research studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater property values and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, need for properties equipped with solar 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 component of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost changes in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar market added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A normal property photovoltaic panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are necessary elements of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding organisations that decide to operate responsibly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of consumer acquiring choices, developing goodwill and improving business outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Lots of property owners opt to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility 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 business are notorious for their varying and unreliable electricity rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can determine just how much electricity will be generated, and most importantly, at what rate, 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 A Solar Power Configured With The Following Specification Run E.G Tv, Microwave Etc?.?
If It Does Carry A Lot Of Household Appliances How Many Sunny Days Will It Require To Charge? How Many Hours Will This Home Appliances Work?
1 X 80W Solar Panel
1 X 85Ah Deep Cycle Battery
1 X Inv1000 - 1000Watt Inverter
1 X Waterproof Battery Box
1 X Stspr10 – 12Ah Charge Controller
1 X Aluminium Solar Panel Stand

1 X Power Rcd Socket
1 X Connectors, Fuses And Terminals
1 X Detailed User Manual
The short answer is yes, with reservations.
Take the worst case you mention, the microwave oven.
Here I assume a 240 Volt supply from the inverter, if 110V the situation is even worse.
I'll also assume the microwave consumes (say) 750 Watts of power.
I also have to assume a 12 Volt battery.
Disregarding losses all through, it goes like this:
Your battery capacity is 85 Ah.
The microwave will need 3.125 Amperes at 240V. for full power.
Thus the battery will need to supply 20 x 3.125 or 62.5 Amperes.
Thus the battery, without further charging, would run the microwave for 1.36 Hours only.
Your solar cell supplies 80W., and if the voltage is 12, the max. current it will supply the battery is 6.6 Amperes. It would take 12 hours (plus) to fully charge the battery (it would/ should never be flattened).
So the reservation is how much charge time is available, and how much you wish to use high- draw appliances.
A careful selection of a TV set could give you plenty of viewing time, however!
Could I Power My Christmas Lights With Solar Without Having Rooftop Solar Panels ?
Sure why not? You just need them to charge some form of battery that will run the lights at night, which means you need to be using low voltage lighting. You just need to factor in the lighting demand and the voltage requirement for the lights and be sure to get the appropriate solar panels and rechargable type batteries to match your needs and place it in a position that gets the optimum amount of sun in the winter (when the lights are going to be used) and using either a weather tight junction or solder and shrink tube the connection from the first stringers to the solar panel (this means cutting off the transformer plug).
Overall,.........its probably going to cost more then to just use electricity by having to purchase the panels and appropriate batteries and any materials needed to convert. If you are about "going green" then I understand.
Are Solar Panels Made Of Different Materials Depending On Area?
Are Solar Panels Made Different If You Live In The North With A Lot Of Snow And Very Little Sunlight Or In The South With High Humidity And Sunlight Throughout The Year?
I think no. materials for the solar panel is same for whole but the solar cell may vary
Help Me With My Solar Panel System?
I Am Trying To Get A List/Price Check On Making A Home Solar Panel System
I Was Hoping For Someone To Look Over What I Have And Add/Remove Things.
Was Looking At This Type Of Solar Panel: X4
Lead Acid Battery: X2
I Have No Idea What Charge Controller I Should Look For.
If You Can Think Of Anything More That Would Be Needed Or If Something Wont Work.
There are many factors used to calculte the energy and the best sized system for not just your needs but also your budget and for payback.
Most importantly is how many maximum KiloWatt hours do you need per day as well as how many *average* KiloWatt hours do you need per day. This can be found on your electric bill. A typical household uses 30,000 KWh per day which translates to a 3KW solar panel system of (12) 250W solar panels with an average of 10 hours of sunlight.
I would recommend grid tied initially and you can go for batteries later. Just have a professional install it or you won't get the tax credits from the State and the Fed.
Also make sure that you don't pay more than $2 per watt for the panels (lowest prices are below $1 per watt for quantity) and no more than $1 per watt for the inverter (lowest prices are below $0.50 per watt).
How Power Is Produced By Solar Panels? What Is The Cost Of A Solar Panel? Can I Really Save Enough Money?
Solar panels convert light energy into electricity via electro-chemical means.
Getting solar panels installed typically costs between $7,000 and $12,000 per kW of capacity. How much money you can save will depend on where you live and how much to pay for electricity.
There is a calculator called PV Watts that can give you a real good estimate of how much you would save on electricity bills here:
just pick the location closest to you (it may not be in the same state) and enter the size of system you want to install (or try a few different ones) and if you put in your $/kWh (from your electric bill) it will even give you the answer in dollars.
If you are in New Jersey or California, there also are some great incentive programs to help lower the installation costs.
Calling a local PV installer is also a good way to get more locally specific info.
