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 resident to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioner, washing clothes, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, numerous residents discover that the convenience, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Leading Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly minimize or even remove your electrical bills
Whether you're a property owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can comprise a big part of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll create free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.
#2 Make a great return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy costs cost savings, the typical American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the past 10 years, property electrical power prices have actually increased by approximately 3 percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect versus unpredictable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're a company or property owner with ever-changing cash circulation, going solar also assists you better forecast and handle your costs.
#4 Increase your property worth
Multiple studies have discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties 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 an essential part of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price changes in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market included jobs 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 development is expected to continue. Since 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 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent way to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A normal residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are necessary parts of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that choose to run responsibly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of consumer getting decisions, producing goodwill and improving service outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Numerous house owners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- 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 utility business are notorious for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate how much electrical power will be created, and most notably, at what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed 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.
- 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
5O Watts Solar Panel With 100Amp Battery But The Controller Is Not Bringing Out Hight Output Its Not Powering?
Powering The Radios I Want It To Power. How Do I Step Up The Out Put Voltage. Should I Increase The Wattage Of The Solar Panell Or Use A Step Up Transformer Or Change The Controller Because The Solar Panel Is 5Owatts And On The Controller They Wrote 120 Watts. A Friend Told Me It Worked For Him But Its Not Working For Me. What Do I Need To Do
Question is, what voltage and power is the radio you wish to power? If it is AC and either 120v or 230v you will need an inverter to convert the 12v to AC supply.
The fact that the controller is 120 Watts will not matter that you have a 50 Watt panel. It should still work and charge the battery. You should be able to put an ammeter in series with the power from the controller to the battery and see that it is charging in sunlight.
How Many Solar Panels Could £3 Million Get Me,And How Many Homes Would That Power?
For the price on solar panels and their output, consider:
Next, consider the outputs to be maximum for when the sun is shining directly on them. What you will actually get depends on where you are, and how often it is cloudy. Also, it depends on whether you install the panels statically, or on a surfaces that automatically move to tract the sun. The actual capture of radiation is theoretically:
Actual Power = (Solar Power)sin(angle between the Panel and the rays)
Usually, it will be better than the equation above since the Maximum power will not capture every photon anyway as the Panel becomes saturated. But do not expect the power to be much better. If your Panel is pointing at noon time sun for the day, expect it to get only half the power of a Panel that actively tracks the sun. Since noon sun is different every day, expect your Panel to do even less if its angle is not adjusted every day. If you do not do this, you will loose another 8% over time.
For a totally static Panel, the best angle is to orient your panel so that it points straight upward, then adjust it downward in the due South direction (or due North if you are in the Southern Hemisphere) the number of degrees indicated by the geological latitude. If for some economic reason, you wish to choose a different orientation, the resultant efficiency will be:
Efficiency = cos(angle from optimum)
How much electricity a home uses depends on where it is located, and the habits of the inhabitants. In the USA, a typical home requires about 24 KWH per day. If you are planning to use solar power to run these homes, you will either need to have some auxillary power source to power them when the sun is not shining, or some method like batteries to store the electric power. At least some buffering of power will be needed to manage variable power demands. Cost all of that out as well. Also, remember that the power you will get will be low voltage DC. The conversion to AC will require some expensive equipment as well. Expect to lose 15% of your power in conversion and transmission (assuming that the distance is not great).
Are There Taxes On Solar Panels That You Put On Your Roof?
My Roommate Thinks The Government Taxes $1600 You For Every Solar Panel You Put On The Roof. This Makes No Sense To Me. I Would Think That The Government Would Encourage Solar Power. I Live In The Usa In The State Of Idaho. I'Ve Googled Extensively And Have Yet To Find Any Evidence Of A Solar Panel Tax, But Perhaps I'M Missing Something. Is There A Solar Panel Tax In Idaho, Usa Or Anywhere In The Country For That Matter?
Sales and use taxes YES.
Contact the seller of the solar panels in IDAHO and they would be able to verify this information for you at that time RIGHT.
Tax credits for installing solar panels are available when you install them.
Residential Energy Efficient Property Credit This tax credit helps individual taxpayers pay for qualified residential alternative energy equipment, such as solar hot water heaters, solar electricity equipment and wind turbines. The credit, which runs through 2016, is 30 percent of the cost of qualified property.
Add State and Local Incentives to the 30% Federal Tax Credit

Which Solar Panels Can Be Used To Power A Regular Box Fan That Normally Plugs Into A Standard Electric Outlet?
The fan needs 110V AC (or 220V some places)
The solar panel makes DC, probably 12V.
You need an inverter and probably a storage battery. You'd do better to get a low-voltage more efficient fan.
Why Is 'Going Green' So Expensive??
Just Wondering. I Want To Help The Environment But Its All So Expensive??
Why Is That?
The technology is expensive. It's expensive to try and reverse the things we've already done to the environment. But it's worth it. For example it cost in the thousands to get solar panels for your house. But it's worth it because of the money you save on power.
