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 utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning unit, cleaning clothing, viewing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, numerous property owners find that the convenience, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically lower and even remove your electrical expenses
Whether you're a property owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can comprise a big part of your regular monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power bill savings, the average American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the past ten years, residential electrical energy prices have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unpredictable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a company or property owner with ever-changing capital, going solar also assists you much better forecast and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your house value
Numerous research studies have actually found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater home worths and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, demand for properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key element of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate changes in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A normal property photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to four loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are very important components of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that decide to run responsibly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of consumer getting decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing service results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Lots of property owners pick to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This means that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
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 infamous for their varying and unreliable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and easy math, we can calculate how much electrical power will be produced, and most notably, at what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired 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
I Would Like To Know Why And When Will Government Building Start To Use Solar Panels On Buildings Especially In States Where Is Constant Sun.
To be honest, solar panels don't work so there isn't much point to using them. 2 solar panels will power your fridge. Then you've also got the cost factor and the waste factor. Solar panels, for the amount of energy they give, are more toxic to the environment than coal. Not while they are producing power, but in the CREATION of the panels. Never hear anyone mention that little tid bit when they talk about solar panels. Then again I don't think many people know about it either so that may have something to do with it.
Basically to sum up, I hope they never do pass legislation about solar panels. Government’s job is to stay out of the way of people and make sure they "play nice". They shouldn’t tell me, or anyone else, how to run our lives.
Solar Panel House?
We Are Looking In To Buy Solar Panels For Our House. The Payment Has To Be Around Or Under $4000. Our House Is A 4 Bedroom And 3 Bath 2-Story House. (Around 2500 Sq. Ft.) Where Can We Get The Solar Panels? Also: Will It Heat Our Water? When We Get The Solar Panels, What Direction Do They Have To Be Facing?
Where can we get the solar panels? I think you will have to buy it on Ebay Solar Panels can be used to heat water and heaters.
When you get the solar panels, they should be in the direction that the sun rises in your country. They should be allowed to come into direct contact with sunlight for most of the day in order for the solar panels to be used to its max.
Sun Run.......Solar Powered Financing....Anyone Know Anything About This?
Just Curious What Your Experience Is/Was.......Thx
Sun Run looks at your energy usage from the previous 12 months with PG&E (or other utility, but they mainly operate in Northern California). That helps indicate the size of the system (it will typically cover 80 percent of your usage), as well as your roof's capacity for holding solar panels and the available space. You can opt to go smaller, but not usually bigger because the California Solar Initiative gives rebates based on the system of the appropriate size for your home. You should ask 3 solar installers for estimates as to size and cost-- that's what recommended. SolarCity does something similar.
Sun Run charges between $3,500 and $20,000 to install the panels. Sun Run meters customers' usage and charges 13.5 cents a kilowatt hour for the electricity the panels produce. Anything beyond what the panels produce is charged by PG&E but at a lower rate. That 13.5 cents is for the life of the system (about 20 years). Right now, California utility companies' residential customers typically pay 15 cents to 35 cents a kilowatt hour, and that rate increases periodically. Sun Run owns, maintains and insures the systems for 20 years, and the company says that customers will on average pay about 15 percent less over the life of the system than when purchasing solar systems with an upfront cost. They get all the rebates and take depreciation on the unit, which is why the cost can be lower than buying panels yourself.
This financing method is called a power-purchase agreement, and it's used all the time in commercial solar systems but not as much in residential. The company seems pretty reputable, but I haven't purchased from them.
Where Can I Find A List Of Solar Panel Manufactures Worldwide?

Actually Ofir, it is much easier and less expensive than you might believe. What you need is a magazine, like, "Solar Today." There is only one that I am familiar with that gets into the nuts and bolts of solar panel manufacturers, installation, and other types of renewable energy. It's called, "Home Power Magazine." We have a home that has been powered by the wind and sun for the last 10 years or so, and most of our initial information came from Home Power, and afterward, from many of the sources that they have in their articles. Every few issures, they take an item connected to renewable energy, such as an inverter, wind turbine, water turbine, or solar panel, and list all the different models that are available. They are broken down by manufacturer, and include specifications like power output, range of voltages, efficiency, materials, and even where they are manufactured. If you subscribe online for one year, the cost is around $25 USD, you will have access to all the previous issues that are archived on their website. You can use their search engine to locate an article listing all the solar panels, they did one a year or so ago with all the information you are looking for.
Despite what you might be hearing, solar power usage is growing at an incredible rate. In the US alone, there are over 100,000 homes and businesses operating some level of solar power right now, that's good news. As far as different countries using different requirements, most all of the manufacturers today are selling their products to most countries worldwide, they are designed to meet requirements for almost anyplace you might use them. Check the magazine out today, you might learn more than you were originally looking for. I will include their link below, and some other good sources for information. You can google any one of them to find their website. Good luck, and take care...Rudydoo
