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 house owners to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, washing clothes, enjoying TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing 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 significant, numerous property owners discover that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically minimize and even eliminate your electric expenses
Whether you're a homeowner, business, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can make up a big part of your regular monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create 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 reduce your energy expenses and you'll still save a lot of money.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy bill savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their solar 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 photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, property electricity costs have gone up by approximately three percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and protect against unpredictable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're a business or house owner with changing capital, going solar also assists you better projection and handle your expenses.
#4 Increase your home worth
Numerous studies have actually discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater property values and offer quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly 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, demand for homes equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential component of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost variations in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar market added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a great method to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A typical property 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 commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are essential components of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that decide to operate properly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of customer getting choices, developing goodwill and improving service results.
#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 money down.
Numerous house owners opt to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The utility companies are notorious for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power prices. There is plainly an upward trend.
With solar panels and basic math, we can compute just how much electricity will be created, and most notably, at exactly 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

Frequently Asked Questions
Is It Worth It To Buy Solar Panels For My House?
What Would Be Pros And Cons?
As a long term investment, yes.
If you have electrical utility now, you are probably better of with a grid tie/net metering system, or may a part standby system to provide some standby solar power in the event of a utility failure.
It is probably not cost effective to go off grid.
To get most economically from your solar system, you also need to change how you use electricity.
For heat they aren't bad either.

Thanking All In Advance, Best Gets 10 Points...
Using solar system is very safe , use a sealed batteries which could last for five years, we have been installing these batteries outside and exposed to excessive heat from sun and never exploded, for your use the cost could be around US$ 6000 to 8000, the power depends on the size of panel and number, however you can add to the solar panels a wind mill that could compensate power and reliability in case there is no sun.
Solar Panel Battery Help?
4- 5V 200Ma Solar Panels
5- 3V 1,000Ma Solar Panels
1- 7Amp Charge Controller
1- 400Watt Inverter
Now I Have All My Solar Panels Linked In Series Which In Theory Should Give Me 35V, 5.8 Amps At 203 Watts. Is This Correct?
The Main Question Is, What Kind Of Battery Should I Get So I Can Run My Miscellaneous Electronics Off Of It?
I May Not Have Explained It So Well So If You Need More Information, Feel Free To Ask.
Your numbers are correct but sadly, you have odd and different rated panels. Odd that they are 3v and 5v, and not 12v panels. When connecting different panel together the group will not be matched so there will be inefficiencies due to the mismatch. Before I say, can you tell me the brand, input voltage and output voltage ratings of your charge controller? It's output voltage might be for 12 or 24 volt batteries or it may be selectable between the two. There are different ones Also what is your inverter input and output numbers. I MIGHT be able to explain your options if you can give me them numbers.
However, it's not looking good. You could make a setup using the 5, 3v to give you 15v, @1 amp and charge a 12 battery or a group of "AA", "AAA", "C" OR "D" batteries , and go that way with your other panels too. Get back with the inverter and charge controller numbers. and we'll see what you might be able to do.
Additional info, with your additional details.
Your inverter requires 12 vdc input, which it uses to produce 115/120 , 60 cycle, VAC for powering household devices. That requires you to have a 12 volt battery. Yes deep cycle batteries do cost more but non-deep cycle batteries (car batteries) will develop plate sulfication and fail to hold a charge if used. This will happen a lot faster than with deep cycle ones and you'll have to replace them more quickly. Overtime you'll spend more money on batteries. Think of it like shoes, if cheap shoe's costs $10 that only last a month but you can buy $30 shoe's that last 5 months which is cheaper? Yes $30 is a lot more than $10 but the cheaper shoes are not cheaper over time.
Inverters can drain a 12 v battery down to 10.5 volts before it will shut down from low voltage. Deep cycle batteries can take this abuse and recover better that car batteries can . As a battery ages the amount of power it can deliver from a full charge drops. After enough use it no longer will be able to take and hold a charge. When that happens it is useless as a storage device and you'll need to buy a new one.
Your charge controller's owner's manual, which I looked at online, suggests it's input voltage should be no higher than 24v.. It should make sense that there would be a max input rating and being a 12 charge controller it doesn't need to be above the max output of solar panel which are < 19 vdc for 12 volt panels.
The reason you should not mix different solar panels is because the lower rated ones will act as a "load" to any power their connected to above their rating. Think of it like combining dogs to pull a sled. If you have 4 dogs that can go 8 mph and 4 dogs that can only go 5 you still can't go over 5 mph because even though there are 4 that can go faster the slower ones will be holding the faster ones back at any speed faster than 5mph because they just cant keep up. There is what is called an impedance mismatch. The impedance difference of the lesser rated panels will load down the output of the higher rated panels and power is wasted or lost.
If you want you could combine the 5 ea. 3 volt, panels (15v) and charge a 12 volt battery connected to your charger or 3ea. 5v panels (15v) but I wouldn't combine them all. Solar panels really come into their own when you don't have access to commercial power and need electrical power. To use them instead of just plugging in to the wall will cost more that you save. Cost more than the power they make compared to what commercial power costs. What you got will be nice if you want to use a computer of watch a little tv while away form the grid.
Your 5 v panels could also charge pairs of 1.5v batteries if you'd want.
I hope this helps . Good luck SS
I Want To Convert A Small Fan To A Solar Panel, What Is The Best Way.?
My Son Has A Science Project And Without The Help Of My Hubby, I Want To Reach Out To You. I Have A Solar Panel, 2 Of Them, And A Small Battery Operated Fan And I Want To Bypass Using A Battery To Use The Panel. If You Dont Know The Answer But You Can Put Me In The Right Direction For Research That Would Be Wonderful!!
Your statements are confusing.
you can't convert a fan to a solar panel. I think you want to run the fan from the solar panel.
A lot depends on the ratings of the fan and the solar panels in volts and amps. But take out the battery and connect one of the panels to the battery terminals and see what happens (need sunlight).
If it turns, but slowly, you need to use a bigger panel, or several of them in series or parallel. Whether to hook them up in series or parallel depends on the ratings i mentioned above.
Engineering - Solar Panel Design?
Doing A Project On Using Solar Energy Systems To Dry Timber Biomass. I Need Help On Where Do I Look, What To Look Into. I Need To Design The Use Of This System Therefore Need To Know What Area Solar Panels To Use To Heat An Area To A Temperature In A Shed. What Calculations Or Research Should Be Done?
Why would you use solar panels, which change solar energy to electricity? You would need to design electric heaters to match the panel output.
Use the solar heat directly via glass panels, much lower price and higher efficiency.
