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 property owner to use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, many residents find that the convenience, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Leading Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically reduce or even remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a property owner, company, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can make up a large portion of your monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power costs cost savings, the average American homeowner settles their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy rates. In the past 10 years, residential electricity costs have actually gone up by an average of three percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and protect against unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a business or house owner with rising and falling money circulation, going solar likewise helps you better projection and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home or business value
Multiple studies have discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater property values and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key component of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a great way to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A typical property photovoltaic panel system will remove three to 4 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are essential elements of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding companies that pick to operate properly. Organisations are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of customer acquiring decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing company outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Lots of homeowners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar company 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 companies are infamous for their changing and unreliable electrical energy rates. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can determine just how much electrical power will be produced, and most notably, at what price, for at least the next 20 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
Solar Panels Energy Theory?? Energy?
&Quot;Does It Take More Energy To Produce A Solar Panel Than What The Same Solar Panel Can Generate In Its Useful Lifetime?&Quot;
No. That lie is put out there by people who would lose out if solar panels ever became widely used. It does take about as much power to produce them as the panels make in 2 years in a good location, but considering their useful lifetime is at least 20-30 years, that isn't much. Wind power produces as much power as is used to create the windmill in 7-9 months in a decent location. Neither will ever produce as much power as they required to be made if placed in the wrong location, like in the shade or a non- windy area. No coal plant would ever make as much energy as it took to build it if no coal were provided either.
Question About Commercial Solar Panels?
I'M Writing A Post-Apocalyptic Story & In It The Main Character Finds A Warehouse. Eventually He Finds Out The Roof Is Covered With Commercial Solar Panels. Given It'S Been Over A Year Since The Majority Of The World Died & No Manainence Was Done, Do They Still Work?
In my experience working with solar panels, I've found that the panels themselves are robust and can last years. How that energy is transferred from the panel to perform work (sorry for the boffinism) is where the complexity emerges, namely due to the fact solar panels produce DC current, and nearly all of our electrical appliances use AC current. In most cases, solar panels will either send energy through a DC/AC inverter directly to be used for appliances, or stored in deep cycle batteries, then converted to AC using an inverter when the user wants to use his/her appliance.
Now to answer your question: the solar panels will be fine, and could conceivably be in fine working order with AC current available IF... and I cannot stress this enough (namely through years of field experience dealing with solar powered scientific instrumentation that was working well and then mysteriously not working)... IF rats and other rodents haven't eaten through the wires. This is probably the most likely reason that a set of solar panels wouldn't be working in your given scenario.
Hope this helps, and good luck!!
What Is A Solar Panel?
This Just For A Science Project Im Doing
A solar panel is a panel designed to absorb the sun's rays for generating electricity or heating. They are often installed on rooftops or other open spaces that get full sunlight. When using solar panels, there may be most likely some form of battery storage attached to the system. This allows for the storage of electricity to be used for a later date.
For Your Rv'S , What Is The Solar Panels Used For? And Is It Necessary ?
Why install solar panels? Why not just run the generator that came with the RV? Following are the reasons that I chose solar panels:
Solar is green, better for the environment and lowers our carbon footprint on this earth.
Solar panels do not pump noxious fumes into our campsite.
Solar panels are silent. They do not add noise pollution to the pristine environments we like to camp in.
Solar power is free (once you have recouped the cost of the panels).
Solar panels keep our batteries charged whether I am there or not (IE: when the RV is in storage).
Installing solar panels was a fun and exciting project to tackle.
Can Anyone Explain Photocells And Solar Panels To Me Please?
Can You Explain-
How A Photocell Generates Electricity
What Factors Affect Where Solar Panels Are Placed
And How The Power Output Of Solar Panels Fitted To A House Can Change....- And For This I Don'T Understand What A Power Output Is?
I think you mean photo-voltaic cell, which outputs a DC voltage when hit with light. It is a type of photocell, which is a more general term.
The photovoltaic effect is the creation of voltage or electric current in a material upon exposure to light. Though the photovoltaic effect is directly related to the photoelectric effect, they are different processes. In the photoelectric effect, electrons are ejected from a material's surface upon exposure to radiation. The photovoltaic effect differs in that electrons are transferred between different bands (i.e., from the valence to conduction bands) within the material, resulting in the buildup of voltage between two electrodes.
In most photovoltaic applications the radiation is sunlight, which is why the devices are known as solar cells. In the case of a p-n junction solar cell, illuminating the material creates an electric current as excited electrons and the remaining holes are swept in different directions by the built-in electric field of the depletion region.
Re solar cells, they are a collection of solar cells, photo-voltaic cells, wired in series parallel combinations to get a higher voltage and higher current than a single cell can generate.
You place them in a location where they can get direct sunlight for the most hours per day, with no shade. For max output, the surface of the panel should be perpendicular to the sun's rays. The angle and direction depends on where the panel is located in the world. In the US, you usually have then at a small angle, perhaps 30º, pointed south. But you need to select the angle and direction for each set of conditions.
Power is the rate of energy generated per unit time. So if the panel generates 1000 joules each second that it is exposed to the direct sun, then it is generating 1000 watts of power. But as soon as the sun moves off so the sun's rays are no longer directly perpendicular to the panel, the power decreases. It continues to decrease as that angle changes.
