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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothing, watching TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, many property owners discover that the convenience, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically minimize and even remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a house owner, business, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can make up a large portion of your month-to-month expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll create 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 reduce your utility expenses and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Make a great return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power costs savings, the typical American house owner settles their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the past ten years, domestic electricity prices have gone up by approximately 3 percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and secure versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're a business or house owner with ever-changing capital, going solar also assists you much better forecast and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your house value
Several studies have discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher home values and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost variations in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a terrific method to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A common residential solar panel system will remove three to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are important parts of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that pick to run properly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of customer getting choices, developing goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Lots of house owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility companies are well-known for their fluctuating and undependable electricity costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and basic math, we can calculate what does it cost? electricity will be produced, and most importantly, at what price, for a minimum of 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
With Everyone Thinking Green...How Green Are Solar Panels?
Can Solar Panels Be Recycled? What About The Manufacturing Of These Panels Is It Done In An Eco-Friendly Way?
Most of the early panels were not very green. They were not very efficient and did not have a real long life span. The newer one are getting much better and there are several companies have cropped up that rebuild many different kinds of panels. Some of these newer panels have a life span in excess of 30 years and are much easier to maintain. The biggest problem with solar systems is that they are not kept clean and loose efficiency. If interested in setting up a system for your self, Please be very careful who you have do the work and what system you buy. There are many companies out there that are just trying to make a quick buck at your expense.
Why Are Semiconductors Use For Solar Panels?
I'M Wondering On What About Semi-Conductors That Make Them Ideal For Solar Panels
To answer this question, one must first understand that electricity consists of free moving charges such as electrons in metal wire that are induced in move in a certain direction in the presence of an applied electric field. There are three (basic) types of electrical material -- insulators, conductors, and semiconductors. Insulators don't conduct electricity because they have no free charges that can move under an applied electric field. Conductors such as metals are just the opposite -- they have a "sea" of free electrons that can be made to move in an applied electric field. Semiconductors are materials that are neither good conductors or good insulators -- they can conduct electricity but only poorly unless you introduce free charges (electrons or holes) into the material by doping or by shining light onto them. Shining light on a semiconductor frees electrons in the material. Then, when an electric field is applied, the introduced charges can move creating a current.
Has There Been Any Break Throughs In Solar Panels? And If Not What Is Taking So Long To Make This A Viable Source Of Energy For Humans!
Production of solar panels has been growing at an annual rate of 40% per year for the last 5 years. That means the Solar industry is more than 7X larger in 2006 than it was in 2000.
Solar panels are now consuming more silicon than all other electronic uses combined. That has actually caused a world wide silicon shortage that is temporarily limiting solar panel growth. Even at these astronomic growth rates it will take several decades for the solar industry to grow big enough to supply most of our power. Electrical generation in the world is one of its largest industries if not the largest it took 100 years to create the existing electrical industry. Creating a brand new world's-largest-industry, which is what solar will become, will take some time.
There are literally dozens of new companies working madly on new types of solar panels. One in particular Nano Solar was just funded with $100 million dollars to build a new production facility that will increase the worlds production of solar panels by almost 25%. There are many other examples I could list.
Back in the 1980's most of the solar panel makers were bought out by ... oil companies. And surprise surprise, solar really stalled in the '80's. Solar did not get back on track until new startup companies started to form about 10 years ago in response to increasing energy prices.
Right now solar power is the fastest growing investment field. Do some research on what is happening now. It is very encouraging.
I Need Help Understanding Solar Panel Wiring?
Are There Any Sites That Explain The Wiring Or Where To Get The Wire Or How To Hook The Wire Together. They Are Making Fortunes On The Plug And Play Panels Just Because They Keep The Information Hidden. It Really Couldn'T Be That Hard. There Are Mc4 Connectors Coming From The Solar Panel...What Do They Hook To? I Need To Get It To Hook To The Charge Controller And Then Hook The Charge Controller To My Batteries. Any Help Would Be Appreciated. Do They Happen To Have A Solar Wiring Kit, Minus The Panel For A Reasonable Price Anywhere. If You Know Anything About This You Could Make A Fortune Assembling Wiring Kits And Selling Them.
The charge controller should have directions with it. The MC4 connector is just a waterproof male / female connector. Hopefully the manufacturer installed male or female MC4s to the solar panel wires. You would then need to crimp the opposite (male or female) inner metal MC4 fitting to your wire and slip the plastic MC4 housing over the inner metal piece- it should snap into place. Follow directions in Source. The tools look expensive.
Can I Increase The Efficiency Of A Solar Panel If I Use A Large Lense In Front Of It?
I Saw Some Videos Where Large Lenses Can Even Melt Iron, I Wonder If I Can Point Some Lense On A Solar Panel To Increase It'S Efficency, Do You Think Is Possible Or Not Worth It?
I'Ve Taken In Consideration The Earth'S Rotation, So I Was Planning To Mount The Solar Panel (Together With The Lense/S) On An Automated Base, Which Rotates According To The Hour (Like Sunflowers).
Yes and in the 70's when photovoltaic cells were expensive, they did try that however it also increases the heat generated which decreases the efficiency therefore it is no longer an economic approach with today's cost structures. It's simply not worth it especially since it requires tracking the Sun.
The concept is called CPV for Concentrated Photovoltaics and it is used with expensive multijunction photovoltaic cells which uses materials such as Germanium to capture more than one frequency of light.
