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 utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c, washing clothes, enjoying TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, lots of homeowners discover that the benefit, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically decrease or even eliminate your electrical expenses
Whether you're a homeowner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can make up a big portion of your monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your energy costs and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power bill cost savings, the typical American property owner settles their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy rates. In the past 10 years, property electricity costs have gone up by an average of three percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard versus unpredictable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're a company or property owner with changing money flow, going solar also helps you much better projection and manage your expenses.
#4 Boost your home worth
Several research studies have discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater property values and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need 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 crucial part of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate variations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, 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 growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is an excellent method to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A normal domestic photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are essential components of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that decide to operate properly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of consumer buying decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing service results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Lots of homeowners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This means that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy 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 notorious for their varying and undependable electricity costs. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can compute just how much electricity will be produced, and most notably, at what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 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.

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 To Deduct Taxes For Solar Panels Question.?
I Had Solar Panels Put On Last December. I Got The Building Permit And Final Permit Signoff In Late December. The Power Company Gave Me Permission To Turn It On (Early January 2015).
Reporting The Installation On My Taxes Is A Little Complicated. The Solar Company Hasn'T Asked Me To Pay Yet Beyond The $500 Deposit. Plus, I Have Placed 2 Solar Powered Garden Lights In The Back Yard.
1) So Do I Deduct The 30% Federal Taxes The Year The Panels Are Installed (2014) Or The Year I Finished Paying Off The Balance (2015)?
2) Is The Tax Deduction For The Panels Only, Or Can I Include The $30 For Two Solar Powered Garden Lights As Well? Thanks.
The federal tax rebate is for the year they were installed. Form 5695 does not mention when the installation was paid at all.
It is for all electrical and roofing expenses related to the solar panel installation.
I don't think a separate yard light would qualify unless they are somehow connected to the solar panels.
What Angle Would Be The Most Effective In Placing A Solar Panel On A Flat Roof In N.Y.C Without Adjusting It?
If You Were Going To Place A Solar Panel On A Flat Roof In New York City To Collect Solar Energy, You Would Want To Have It In An Angle. What Angle Would Be Most Effective Assuming That You Aren'T Able To Adjust It Throughout The Year? And Why?
Facing south tilted up by an angle equal to your latitude, which for New York city is about 41 degrees. South because the Sun never appears in the northern part of the sky as seen from anyplace north of the tropics. And tilted up 41 degrees, which means pointing 41 degrees south of straight up (or 90-41=49 degrees above the southern horizon), because the highest the Sun gets at noon on March 21 or September 21 is 49 degrees, while in summer it gets 23 degrees higher and in winter 23 degrees lower, so it ranges from a low of 26 degrees on December 21 to a high of 72 degrees on June 21. So if you never move it go for the average.
Why Do Solar Panels Work Better When They Are Cool?
The electrical resistance of conductors rises with the temperature. This causes a greater loss of energy that is wasted heating the conductors.
What Do I Need For A Solar Panel Setup?
Hi I Allways Liked Solar Power And Wanted To Do A Fun Small Setup Somthing To Power Somthing Like A Small Cfl Or 2 Cfls.. Possably A Computer Lcd Monitor,
Anywho What Kind Of Pannel Should I Get I Was Looking At This:
But What Else Would I Need What Type Of Charge Controler Or Batterys And Inverters? Any Special Wires? How Would I Set This Up?
this one looked like something you were looking for..hope it helps you!
How Do Solar Panels Work?
I Have Tried To Understand What All The Scientific Words The Websites Say! Help Please!
What type of Solar are you referring to?
1) Solar electric (photo-voltaic) or PV for short.These panels work when photons from the sun strike electrons in the panels they begin to move. This creates direct current or DC.This is the same current as a battery.An inverter is installed that changes DC to AC current. This is the standard household electricity.Some utility companies offer a net metering program. Simply put if your Solar produces more electricity than you use, your meter runs backwards, feeding the excess back to the power company. They in turn give you a credit for the same amount towards future bills.
2) Solar Thermal is a different panel that uses a copper plate panel or an evacuated tube panel to heat either water or a water/glycol mix for home potable water use.Simply put it heats water for your house.With modifications this type can be used to heat your entire home.
3) Solar pool heat. This type of panel is usually a black plastic panel or a rubber mat placed on the roof and tied into the existing pool equipment. the poll water circulates through the panels and heats the pool.In warm climates where the pool get hot in the summer months the solar and be circulated at night to help cool down the pool.you can't do this with any other type of pool heater.
I hope this explains at least a little better than you have read. I think some of these experts purposely complicate Solar to make it sound like rocket science or something.
