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 house owners to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c, washing clothes, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, many home 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 Significantly minimize or even remove your electric expenses
Whether you're a property owner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can comprise a big portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your energy bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.
#2 Make a terrific return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy bill cost savings, the average American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, property electricity rates have actually increased by approximately 3 percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're a business or property owner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise helps you better forecast and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your residential or commercial property value
Numerous studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, need for homes geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial part of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate changes in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a great way to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A normal domestic photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to 4 heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

Sustainability and business social obligation are very important components of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that opt to run responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of customer purchasing choices, creating goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Lots of house owners select to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- 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 utility business are well-known for their changing and unreliable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate how much electricity will be generated, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).
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.

Frequently Asked Questions
Should I Buy Solar Panels?
Let'S Say I Can Buy Solar Panels For My Business For $115,000 And My Payback Period Is 18 Years. Would It Be Correct To Assume That My Money Is Best Spent Elsewhere (Such As Paying Down Debt) If I Am Being Charged An Interest Rate Of 3.9%?
Probably, however, depending on what your business does, solar panels can be a somewhat effective marketing strategy. Also you are helping the environment with your investment in solar panels.
On a side note, I didn't think modern solar panels had a payback period of 18 years? From what I've heard it's more like 7 years. Oh well, I don't know much about this topic.
Where Do You Get Cheap Solar Panels And Are They Hard To Install?
What are you trying to do? Heat water? A House? Generate electricity? Heat a swimming pool?
We need more information.

When it comes to solar panels, they have covered it. Every type and for every purpose.
Plus they will have links to dozens of other sites on the subject.
Which Is Better: Solar Energy Or Wind?
I Was Just Curious Because I Would Rather Get The Cheaper One If It Is Better.
solar power is usually the best choice for the following reasons.
A solar power system:
* Has no moving parts
* Has better reliability and a 25 year warranty
* Requires less monitoring
* Does not require expensive maintenance
* Provides more predictable energy output based on BOM and NASA data.
* Better value for money in sites with average wind speeds less than 5 meters per second
* Is less conspicuous than a wind turbine
* Is totally silent in operation
* Allows for quicker installation with less cable required
* Is less susceptible to lightning damage
* Is less susceptible to high wind damage.
* Requires less space in most cases as the panels can be installed on a roof
Additionally, many local government authorities are rather averse to permitting wind turbines being erected within townships. Even the quietest of turbines do generate some noise, so they really aren't all that well suited to suburban areas where neighbors may be disturbed and perhaps complain.
availing solar energy is much cheaper.... but on the other way, you need to calculate a lot if wanna go for wind power.
see this article: "Is wind power right for you?" and the link is here:
Should I Install Solar Panels To Cover 90% Or 100% Of My Current Usage?
I Just Had A Visit With A Solar Company That Offered Me 2 Plans. One With 98% Coverage Of My Current Year Usage For $14,000. The Breakeven Point Would Be 7 Years. The Other Plan Entails 90% Coverage For $11,000. The Key Difference Is That Using 1 Less Panel Means Using A Smaller Inverter, And $3,000 Savings. Breakeven Would Be In 6 Years Because Paying $120 A Year For The Uncovered Electricity Use Would Be Cheaper Than Installing The Extra Panel.
Which Is The Better Deal? It'S Hard To Know How Much More Electricity Kids Would Use As They Grow Up. The Rates Would Likely Go Up 4% A Year, So The Breakeven Point Would Likely Be A Year Sooner Than My Estimates. I Will Probably Be Alive And Stay In This House For At Least Another 15 Years. So Forking Over The Additional $3,000 Would Seem Like A Better Deal In The Longer Term. Our Usage May Continue To Go Up.
The Smaller System Could Be A Much Better Value. If Both Kids Are Out Of The House In 12 Years, My Wife And I Would Likely Use Much Less Energy At Home. This Year, I Spent A Lot Of Time On Projects Using A Desktop Computer, And My Mother Inlaw Stayed With Us For 6 Months. Our Usage Might Stabilize From Now On. Any Extra Electricity We Use Will Be Charged At The Lowest, &Quot;Tier 1&Quot; Rate By The Utility Company Company.
Which Is Better? Better To Spend A Little Extra Money Now And Have A Little Extra Room To Grow In The Next 10 Years? Take The Great Deal Now And Worry About 10 Years Later When It Comes? Thanks.
I would go with the bigger unit because solar cells tend produce less electricity as they age.
Is There Anybody Here Who Owns A House That Uses Solar Panels For Electricity?
How Much Does It Costs?
We used solar power and a bank of used batteries for limited electricity while living in a 5th wheel RV in the mountains of remote Oregon for several years. The magazine HOME POWER, published in S. Oregon gave us many ideas, with articles by people who were off the grid, using solar. If you don't live off the grid, we've been informed, it doesn't pay to use solar.
