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 use the sun to power daily life: running your ac system, cleaning clothing, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, lots of homeowners discover that the convenience, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically decrease or perhaps eliminate your electrical bills
Whether you're a house owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a large portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your energy expenses and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs cost savings, the typical American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the past ten years, residential electricity costs have increased by approximately 3 percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard against unforeseeable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're an organisation or homeowner with ever-changing capital, going solar also helps you much better forecast and handle your expenses.
#4 Boost your home or business worth
Several studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need for homes 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 component of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will get rid of three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show 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. Progressively, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that select to operate responsibly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of consumer purchasing choices, developing goodwill and improving organisation results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Many homeowners opt to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This means that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
As of 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 rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and easy math, we can calculate just how much electrical energy will be produced, and most importantly, at what cost, for at least 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

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
Why Does It Cost So Much To Buy Small Solar Panels? I Am Trying To Do A Good Deed For Earth Week Why So Much?
I Have Bought A Single Row Of Small Solar Panels Thats Comes 20 In A Row For $800 Dollars And They Are Very Small And Comes With A Protected Glass That I Can Hang It Out Anywhere Outside And Hang It Where The Sun Is At Its Highest.
But I Wonder Why Does Solar Panels Cost So Much?
The Reason I Bought It Because I Disparately Wanted To Save Money Because My Family And I Spent Over 200 Dollars On Electricity Each Month So If I Spent 24 Thousand Dollars Each Year For Electricity Then That Means I Would Cut The Amount Of Electricity I Have By Half So That Means I Would Save About A $1000 Dollars Each Year Instead Of Over $2400.
With These Solar Panels I Can Charge The Batteries Of My Car, Use It For My Dish Washer Or My Living Room Tv.
Did I Made The Right Thing Because In Others Store They Had The Same Thing But Much More Expensive.
What Do U Think?
They say about pv cells that the cost return takes 7 years, meaning that it'll take you 7 years to save on electricity what you paid for the cells. Most of us expect to need electric for a long time, so it is worth it. The only question is, will the cells continue to work for 7 years. They are working on more cost effective solar technology, but as of yet, none has been effective.
Were Can I Buy Decent Solar Panels?
I Am Looking For Solar Panels And Wind Mill To Put Around Our House And I Was Wondering Were To Find Them
Your best bet would be to go down to a place that has magazines and look through their solar magazines, like Solar Today and Home Power. In these you'll will find many places online where you can buy solar and wind power products. They also have good reviews so that you can be an informed consumer and don't end up buying poor quality products. I've seen performance reviews on a variety of models.
How Can I Charge A 12 Volt Car Battery(Lead-Acid)With A Solar Panel?
I Don'T Have A Solar Panel Yet So Can You Tell Me What Votage Panel Should I Get.
Do I Need An Inverter Or Something.
A solar panel for a 12V battery has 36 cells. This generates about 22V at low temperature and about 15V at 60C, just enough to have a series diode and charge a 12V lead acid battery. Note that it will stop charging if temperature is over 60C because the voltage is too low. It needs to be well ventilated, not just lying on the ground.
It can be connected directly across the 12V battery (the right way round with + to + and - to -. It will charge the battery at whatever current it is producing. Normally with btteries you wouldn't want to charge much faster than the "10 hour rate". That is the Ampere hours rating of the battery divided by 10 hours in Amps. Therefore a typical car battery (40Ah) should not have more than about 4 Amps, which will normally be a panel rated about 80W. It will take about 10 x 1.4 = 14 hours to charge. If the panel is smaller, it will take longer. If it is bigger it will take less time. How much energy can you take from the battery. Ten hours at 4A. However there will not be enough hours of full sun to recharge it next day.
The panel is normally sized for the load requirement. Work out how many watt hours of load per 24h day. Multiply by 1.4 for the charge losses. Then determine how many equivalent full sun hours the panel works (look it up on internet for the location). Divide Wh/day by 12V to get Ah/day. Divide Ah/day by the equivalent sun hours and you have the number of Amps the panel should put out (no clouds). Bigger battery helps with clouds, and bigger panel helps too. You shouldconsider 100Ah battery with deep cycle capability, not a car battery.
If the battery is charged continuously by a solar panel and not discharged the battery will build up charge until eventually it is fully charged (its voltage is about 14V). It will then be overcharging, and it will bubble away merrily, giving off sulphour dioxide gas toxic and hydrogen and oxygen (very explosive) and using electrolyte. That is why the battery should never be indoors or near flames or even small sparks. An electronic device connected between the panel and the battery controls overcharging by shutting off the panel once the battery is full. These can be bought at the solar panel shop - solar charge regulator.
The inverter converts 12V to 120 or 230V AC etc. It is only necessary if you want to run mains appliances. You could run an inverter with loads up to 50 or 100W from a car battery, and that would go a few hours only. With the bigger battery about double that. Remember 4 Amps for 10h is 48W.
What Do You Think Is The Most Efficient Alternative Fuel Source?
Which One Would You Put Your Faith In?
Solar, it is available in abundance and the panels last for up to 50 years(more than 3 times the payback period) have few moving parts. Soon these numbers will skew even further in favor of panels as yeilds increase and cost of mfg falls.
How Is The Economy Of The Usa And The World Still Functioning?
Will The Global Economy Crash?
If So, What Can I Do With The Capital I Currently Have?
Will it crash? I don't think so, and least not right away.
Not because it can't, but because a whole lot of governments are very busy trying to keep it up.
Basically, a crash occurs when people think that their investments (such as land, or stocks, or commodities or securities) are worth X and they find out that no one will buy them at that price,
How bad the "crash" is really means how much less people will spend for something that was worth X yesterday.
By 2006 there was a LOT of "inflated" values floating around. The housing market in the USA was the base for a whole lot of "derivative" securities, and the housing market was overpriced. Housing prices reached a point that people would not (or could not ) pay the asking price. When prices started dropping, it was like a avalanche. It took everything lower down the mountain with it.
Governments limited how bad the crash was by throwing money at it. Unlike the 1929 crash, when the governments stood back and let the markets sort it out, this time they stepped in.
What they in effect did was flood the markets with money (the bailout), letting banks and wall street commandos balance their books on the backs of the taxpayer.
The reasoning was brutally simple. If we (the government) do nothing, the average citizen is wiped out, because there will be no jobs for him to work at, no savings because the banks went bust, no food because the farmers can't sell their crops for what seed costs.
If we pour in tax dollars to balance the books, the taxpayer is hosed for the next 25 years, but maybe it will not hurt quite so bad.
So that's what they have done, and are still doing. What you see in Europe right now is just more of the same. Pouring in taxpayer dollars to make the inflated values in the banks balance sheets real instead of imaginary.
Will it work?
Short term - probably yes
Long Term - Beats me. When you are dealing with world economies, most of it is smoke and mirrors, and a lot of faith.
