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 daily life: running your a/c, cleaning clothes, viewing TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, many property owners discover that the convenience, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically lower and even remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a property owner, service, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can make up a big portion of your month-to-month costs. With a solar panel system, you'll create free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your utility bills and you'll still save a great deal of money.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power expense cost savings, the typical American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, residential electrical energy prices have actually increased by approximately three percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and protect against unforeseeable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're a business or house owner with changing capital, going solar also assists you much better forecast and manage your expenses.
#4 Increase your home value
Multiple research studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher property worths and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, demand for properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial element of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a terrific method to decrease 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 normal residential photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are essential elements of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that opt to operate responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of consumer acquiring choices, producing goodwill and improving service results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Numerous property owners choose to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility business are infamous for their changing and undependable electricity costs. There is plainly an upward trend.
With solar panels and basic math, we can determine what does it cost? electrical energy will be produced, and most importantly, at what cost, 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

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
How Many Solar Panels Would I Need To Power My Home?
Or How Many Watts? I Dont Use Much Electricity. I Have On A Couple Of Lights And A Computer, Sometimes The Tv. How Many Solar Panels Would I Need To Power Those Constantly Throughout The Day, And Maybe Charge Batteries For Night? The Air, Refrigerator And Hot Water Heater I Would Still Use Regular Electricity.
Solar panels produce DC electricity, not AC. So, they would have to charge a bank of batteries, then you'd need an inverter to convert DC to AC.
You need to find what your peak wattage is (consumption) and how long you want to run things for and work backwards from there.
Suffice to say, a roof-full of panels probably won't be enough.
How Many Solar Panels Do I Need To Power A Small House?
Im Only Powering Lights And Fans
Solar panels produce DC (12v, 24v, 48v, etc) voltage. You will need to invert the solar power to AC. The amount of panels is determined on the amount of Watt Hours of electrical load you will be using. If you want to run these loads after the sun goes gown then you will have to store your solar generated power into batteries.
I have a completely off grid home, 2000 watts solar, propane heat, H20, refrigerator, and generator. Total electrical system cost about $50,000. 1000 square foot home, facing do south.
Hope this is helpfull.
Charging Sla Battery With Solar Panel? Safe Voltage?
I Have A Very Small 10V Solar Panel (Which I Made By Connecting 4 Very Small 2.5V Solar Panels In Series) And I Want To Charge A 6V Sla Battery With It. Is 10V Too Much Voltage For It? I'Ve Read That The Maximum Is Around 7 Volts But My Solar Panel Doesn'T Really Put Out Many Milliamps. My Question Is, Even Though It Barely Puts Out Any Milliamps, Is 10 Volts Still Too Much For It?
Your battery will bring the voltage of your solar cells down to what they need. If you had more powerful solar cells you should have a voltage regulator in the system.
But good for you. you are playing with a very useful technology. Do it and learn.
Solar Panels And Distance From The Sun?
I Was Having A Discussion With A Friends About Solar Panels.
He Says That If There Is A Solar Panel (Sp1) On The Ground And A Solar Panel (Sp2) High In The Atmosphere (In The Stratosphere) The Difference In Power Output Between Sp1 And Sp2 Negligible.
I Said That There Would Be A Large Difference In Power Output Because Sp1 Has All Of The Atmosphere To Block The Suns Rays And Sp2 Has Very Little Atmosphere Because It Is Very High Up (In The Stratosphere) Therefore More Sun Can Get To The Panel And More Power Is Produced.
Who Is Correct?
Many Thanks In Advance, Please Leave Sources If Possible, For Validity.
There will be a difference (44%, see below) but not a large one. The atmosphere is transparent to the wavelengths used by the solar panel. But no clouds, and a lot more hours of sunlight.
Space-based solar power (SBSP) (or historically space solar power- SSP) is a system for the collection of solar power in space, for use on Earth. SBSP differs from the usual method of solar power collection in that the solar panels used to collect the energy would reside on a satellite in orbit, often referred to as a solar power satellite (SPS), rather than on Earth's surface. In space, collection of the Sun's energy is unaffected by the day/night cycle, weather, seasons, or the filtering effect of Earth's atmospheric gases.
The world Radiation Centre's 1985 standard extraterrestrial spectrum for solar irradiance is 1367 W/m2. The integrated total terrestrial solar irradiance is 950 W/m2. Therefore, extraterrestrial solar irradiance is 144% of the maximum terrestrial irradiance. A major interest in SBSP stems from the length of time the solar collection panels can be exposed to a consistently high amount of solar radiation. For most of the year, a satellite-based solar panel can collect power 24 hours per day, whereas a land-based station can collect for only 12 hours per day, yielding lower power collection rates around the sunrise and sunset hours.
The collection of solar energy in space for use on Earth introduces the new problem of transmitting energy from the collection point, in space, to the place where the energy would be used, on Earth's surface. Since wires extending from Earth's surface to an orbiting satellite would be impractical, many SBSP designs have proposed the use of microwave beams for wireless power transmission. The collecting satellite would convert solar energy into electrical energy, which would then be used to power a microwave emitter directed at a collector on the Earth's surface. Dynamic solar thermal power systems are also being investigated.
Some problems normally associated with terrestrial solar power collection would be eliminated by such a design, such as dependence on meteorological and weather conditions, and the panels being prone to corrosion. Other problems may take their place though, such as cumulative radiation damage or micrometeoroid impacts.
