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, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, lots of residents discover that the benefit, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.
Leading Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically decrease and even remove your electric bills
Whether you're a house owner, business, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can comprise a big part of your monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your energy bills and you'll still save a great deal of money.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy bill cost savings, the average American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the previous ten years, domestic electrical power costs have increased by approximately three percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and safeguard versus unpredictable increases in electrical power costs. If you're an organisation or property owner with rising and falling capital, going solar also helps you much better forecast and manage your costs.
#4 Increase your home or business worth
Multiple studies have actually found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater property worths and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, need for properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential component of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A typical domestic solar panel system will remove 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are essential parts of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding organisations that choose to run properly. Services are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of customer purchasing decisions, developing goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Numerous homeowners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This means that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
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 infamous for their changing and undependable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and easy math, we can calculate just how much electricity will be generated, and most notably, at exactly 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.
- 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
What Is The Difference In A Solar Panel That Converts Light Into Heat, And One That Converts One From Light In?
Also, How Does A Solar Panel Convert Light Into Heat?
A solar hot water heater panel, is just a metal plate coated with a flat black paint. Behind or through the plate is run tubing that carries water to be heated.
A solar electric panel is a 2D array of photodiodes, that absorb (usually) infrared light or a bit more energetic, and electrons are pushed across a diode junction gap. This produces a voltage difference, so that the displaced electrons can flow through the circuit, back to their original junction.
They are alike in that there is a flow involved. They are different in the active wavelengths, the cost, and complexity.
What Is The Lifespan Of A Solar Panel?
If I Leave A Solar Panel Out For Hundreds Of Years, Will It Keep Producing Electricity? Assuming A Small Tribe Keeps Cleaning It And It Wasn'T Accidentally Broken - How Long Until It Stopped Functioning?
"Solar panels must withstand heat, cold, rain and hail for many years. Many crystalline silicon module manufacturers offer warranties that guarantee electrical production for 10 years at 90% of rated power output and 25 years at 80%"
Why So Less People Are Fighting To Stop The Global Warming? Nobody Cares About Our Lifes?
Oh, wow, Al Gore and several other thousand democrats would cheer for this question right about now. "Global warming is ruining us, coastlines will be flooded and we will all die! Let's start driving hybrids and using solar panels and we will all be safe!"
Global warming is one of the dumbest, stupidest, and ridiculous theories out there. Oh no, the temperature is raising. I'm sure our climate has never gone through changes in temperature before, this must be the first time..........NOT!
It's stupid to assume that just because the temperatures have gone up a bit that the Earth is going into a "global warming." Our climate has gone through changes before, it's stupid and ignorant to assume that it is the issue now. And the do you know how much the temperature has raised (According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change)? .6 degrees Celsius OVER THE LAST CENTURY. That is so significant, isn't it? I don't think so either.
And this slight SLIGHT raise in temp isn't our fault at all. Half of the global warming of the last century has happened between 1900 and 1945. If it was our fault, it would have happened more recently, seeing as we have been burning more fuel more recently.
So don't buy into the crap about how global warming will wreck us, it's all a bunch of stupid political garbage.
How Come Solar Panels Are Not Very Efficient?
I Need To Write A Paper On Alternative Energy Sources For School.
Solar panels use a lot of different materials, but silicon is the most common. The problem is that slight imperfections and impurities in the solar panel dramatically decrease the amount of electricity that can be produced.
How Many Solar Panels Do You Need On Your House To Power Your Heater In Winter?
I would not use photovoltaic solar panels at all for heating. A solar heating system is much less expensive. I have an experiment running in Manitoba (latitude 50 deg 7 min N) that uses passive solar heating in a building 60' long by 36' wide. The long wall that faces south to catch the sun is clad with 2 layers of infrared absorbing poly. The building has 3000 sq ft of roof. The poly cost $1500. The north wall is insulated R20. The east and west walls are insulated with straw bales to R50. The east and west walls are painted dark red, which warms the external surface by approximately 5 C in sunshine. At night an insulating curtain is drawn over the south side to minimize heat loss. The internal temperature depends upon the weather. On an overcast day in February, the building is 6 C warmer than the outside. In a February heat wave the outside temperature hit +2 C and the internal temperature spiked to 36.5 C, somewhat incongruous with 4 ft of snow on the walls of the building. More typically, the internal temperature is 23 C warmer than the external temperature during daylight hours (+6 C inside - 17 C outside). In October, internal temperatures exceeded 50 C, so be prepared to vent excess heat on a warm day. For a residential building, you need to buffer the temperature by adding a heat exchanger (cooling during the day, heating at night), insulated water tanks to store the heat and a pump to circulate the water.
Edit @ Peter
6 hp = 4.2 kW. Lets take a pessimistic view and say the solar cell is 10% efficient (The best lab result is 27.4%). Assume that you store energy in a battery to operate the pump at night. In December the solar insolation in Winnipeg, Manitoba is .99 kW-hr/day/m^2.
To run your pump 24 hr you need 1028 m^2 = 0.254 acres. In July the solar insolation is 5.92 kW-hr/day/m^2 and you need 0.042 acres to run the pump for 24 hours. Further south in the US, the numbers are more favorable.
