Lots of homeowners select to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- 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 Financial investment
The utility business are well-known for their varying and unreliable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Much Do Solar Energy Panels Cost?
My Husband Is Interested In Buying Solar Panels For The Roof And I Dont Know Where To Find Them.
Buying solar panels can be very expensive, especially for installation.
If your average daily usage is 6.6 kilowatt per hour, then you would need a 2 kilowatt system that could generate ten kilowatts per hour in a day. This system could cost between $10,000 to $20,000. Of course, the higher wattage, the higher the cost.
There are some alternatives to spending thousands of dollars on solar panels.
1) Buy several solar panel kits and link them together yourself.
2) Combine solar with wind power to decrease the number of panels you will need.
3) Build your own solar panels for around $200 each.
If you are handy with some basic soldering, then you can make your own solar panels.
Which Solar Panel Should I Choose?

The most energy effiecient PV cell in Australia at the moment is from "First Solar" they generate the most electricity compared to all units in Australia by an additional 6%. Not much but everything counts these days, especially with prices increasing over the next thress years (even without the CPRS) projections are (by IPART, who are the regulators that sets the electricity prices) rises by 46% (thats by Country Energy) and with the CPRS it was going to reach a 64% increase. The First Solar PV cells will give you a return on investment of around 2.75 years and generate electricity for 25 years (after 20 years they still generate Approx. 85% efficiency - best in market, I know I have been researching them for ages, and these are the ones I am installing !!!. Hope this helps. You need to choose a 1.5kW system, this will generate Approx $1380pa
Hi Trying To Learn More About Solar Panels!?
I Know That The Solar Panels Store The Power From The Sun In The Daytime, Where Does That Stored Energy Go From There? Is It Stored In The Batteries? And How Would You Keep The Batteries Topped Up If You Had No Electric? By A Generator? Interested In Solar Panels For Abroad, But Need More Info.
Solar panels do not store power. Solar panels convert sunlight into electricity. To store power you need batteries. The usual type of batteries used are lead-acid deep discharge( similar to car batteries). The batteries are charged up during the time the sun is out. However, as a backup you could also have a generator handy to provide power for times when the sun did not shine enough to keep the batteries charged up.
What Are The Different Uses For A Solar Panel?
There are many different uses for solar power. However, there are really two core uses that supply all the other more specific ones.
1. Solar panels produce electricity
2. Solar panels heat water (or glycol which ultimately heats water).
Everything else more or less starts with the above. Producing electricity can supplement power to a home through a net metering agreement with the utility (very popular today), can store power in a battery for use at night, or can power loads directly without batteries or grid power (like an attic fan).
There are other creative things you can do with the electric, but I just covered the 3 most basic ones.
Solar panels that heat water (Solar Thermal Collectors) can be used to heat domestic water, in floor heat, pools, and many other things.
The technology for solar electric panels and solar thermal panels are very different. To illustrate, Solar electric panels produce power from light from the sun, and actually perform better in cold temperatures. Solar Thermal panels heat water by trapping the suns heat, and therefore work better in hotter temperatures.
Check out our company website and contact us to learn more. We have done numerous systems with both technologies.
Which Solar Panels Are Better, Amorphous Vs Polycrystalline. Whats Is The Pro'S And Con'S?
Amorphous panels tend to be less efficient, cheaper, and can be flexible (depending on the backing material). I'm not sure if there are many rigid amorphous panels available nowadays
In most situations the choice will come down to cost, so I wold go for the cheapest.
Less efficient panels however will mean a larger area of panel for the same output so mounting may be more difficult.
