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.

#3 Secure against increasing energy expenses

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
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 likewise insulate our country from price fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy

Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding organisations that opt to operate properly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of customer purchasing decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing company results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Numerous house owners select to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar supplier for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The energy business are notorious for their varying and undependable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can calculate what does it cost? electricity will be produced, and most notably, at what rate, for a minimum of 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

Frequently Asked Questions
Where I Can Find This Solar Panel?
Where I Can Find Solar Panel The Has 4.8 Volts? Like Those Solar Walkway Light Or Something That Has 4.8 Volts Solar Panel.
Do You Think I Can Get It From Home Depot?
How much current are you looking for? If its under 500mA, then they are fairly cheap. Over an amp and the price climbs.
Here's a few ideas -
All in one simple changer -
If you know something about electronics (series-parallel electrical circuits) and know how to solder. You can build your own -
For a recharger system, its usually best to have charge controller. This device regulates the current and voltage to whatever you are using as a load.
The other thing to do is to search for "DIY solar chargers" for more information.
How Do You Make Your Own Solar Panels?
I Have Heard You Can Make Your Own Solar Panels.... But How?
Where Do You Start? Is It Cheap, Or Should I Just Buy Them Already Made?
if you're hoping to put 'em on your house and use 'em to supplement power from the grid, then you'll want to buy them.
the panels have to be made with exotic chemicals, in a "clean" environment, with dangerous chemicals.
anyone who tells you that you can make 'em yourself will be asking for money for the plans.
in truth, you could get an old panel, and, if it was the right voltage, you could use it to charge your rechargeable batteries.
typically, that's not the hoped for application.
and, to get enough power for you house, you're not going to be able to "do it yourself."
whenever you buy anything, make sure you know what it can do.
ie, read the fine print.
if it's a few hundred (or thousand) dollars, it's not going to be useful to augment your home power.
in addition to the strength, there's also the equipment that's needed to sync it up with the power from the utility, and that's neither cheap, nor a do-it-yourself project.
i've seen lots of "panels" but when you read the specs, they're pretty useless.
not good for battery charging, not for hooking up to your house.
in other words, interesting projects with no practical use.
What Stockes Will Be Profitable Because Of Summer? In 2011.?
What Do You Think About Dow, Starting To Make Solar Panels In The Usa?
Retailers do well in good weather (clothing, holiday gear).
Dow Chemicals is a massive and diverse company. I imagine the solar panel division is a very small part of the overall business. And one summer doesn't make a swallow!
What Are Solar Panels Made Of?
Solar panels are instruments made from "Silicon Cells" having the characteristic to convert solar energy into electricity.
Sunlight is composed of miniscule particles called photons. When the sun’s photons are consumed by the silicon atoms of the "Silicon Cells", the atomic creation of the solar panel is organized in such a way that electricity is generated.
When these solar cells are accumulated together with wiring, they become one concrete panel.
Where Are The Best Places To Put Solar Panels?
By Best I Mean Safest Places. If I Were To Install Them On My Roof Am I Risking Due To Damage From Weathering? Such As Rain Or Snow. I Don'T Get Very High Winds Around Here, Nor Any Natural Disasters Such As Hurricanes Or Tornadoes. Does Anyone Have Solar Panels That Have Been Durable For A Long Time? Is It Worth The Investment?
Photovoltaic panels are designed to be put on a roof, exposed (obviously) to sun, but also rain, snow, and wind. Generally, there is even a rating for something like 1" hail. A good mounting system will be stronger than the underlying roof, so will withstand most anything short of a direct hit by a tornado or hurricane.
There are a few panels from the 70's (that's the 1970's) still in operation, I believe. They look horrible, but are still producing a little electricity. Since then, housings have improved, and panels generally have a 25-year warranty today (some cheap ones are 20-year warranty).
