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 system, washing clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, numerous residents find that the benefit, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically decrease or perhaps eliminate your electric bills
Whether you're a property owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can make up a big part of your month-to-month costs. With a solar panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your energy expenses and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Make a great return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity bill savings, the typical American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the previous 10 years, domestic electricity prices have actually increased by approximately 3 percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a company or property owner with changing cash flow, going solar also assists you much better forecast and manage your expenses.
#4 Increase your home or business worth
Multiple studies have discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, need for homes 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 component of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost changes in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that 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 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent method to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A typical domestic photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are essential parts of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that opt to operate responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective driver of customer purchasing choices, developing goodwill and improving service results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Numerous property owners select to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility 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 companies are notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and easy math, we can compute what does it cost? electrical power will be produced, and most importantly, at what price, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed 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 Are The Best Type Of Solar Crystals?
I Know There Are A Few Different Types Monocrystal, Poly-CrystallinE....... What Is The Best Type For Putting Out Energy, Strongest, And Most Expensive?
Monocrystalline solar panels are made from a large crystal of silicon. These type of solar panels are the most efficient as in absorbing sunlight and converting it into electricity, however they are also the most expensive. They do somewhat better in lower light conditions then the other types of solar panels. -->
Summary: Most efficient, but also most expensive.
Polycrystalline solar panels are the most common type of solar panels on the market today. They look a lot like shattered glass. They are slightly less efficient then the monocrystalline solar panels and less expensive to produce. Instead of one large crystal, this type of solar panel consists of multiple amounts of smaller silicon crystals. -->
Summary: Less efficient, but cheaper.
Amorphous solar panels consist of a thin-like film made from molten silicon that is spread directly across large plates of stainless steel or similar material. These types of solar panels have lower efficiency then the other two types of solar panels, and the cheapest to produce. One advantage of amorphous solar panels over the other two is that they are shadow protected. That means that the solar panel continues to charge while part of the solar panel cells are in a shadow. These work great on boats and other types of transportation. -->
Summary: Even less efficient, but even cheaper, and good because they don't require direct sunlight.
Solar Panel efficiency is the percentage of solar energy that is captured and converted into electricity. Some average efficiency numbers would look like...
Amorphous (thin-film)- 10%
Thin film solar panels (amorphous) will generally degrade approximately 1% each year, where as crystalline panels degrade at approximately 0.5% .
Need Help With Solar Panels (Faq'S And Opinions)?
This Solar Panel I Saw Was For 500 Dollars
(I Get A 25% Discount)
And I Was Curious
Will They Produce Electricity? Or Just Heat?
What Do They Do?
Is It A Good Investment?
Here Is A Link To The One I Would Like,
No Reviews But It Looks New To The Site.
And Can'T Go Wrong With The Price
Heres A Link
That's a serious panel, but the price is ridiculous. If you're going to spend $549, who not get something like this http://www.solartown.com/store/product/t... ? Also crystalline silicon, but almost triple the power.
I would suggest that you have a lot more research to do before just buying a panel. A single panel like that isn't immediately useful unless you have a device that takes exactly that voltage, and is not critical. A solar water pump might fall into that category. For anything else, you would need additional equipment, such as a battery, charger, and inverter.
Even at these prices, a single panel is unlikely to save you money over the electric company in the long run, unless your electricity is very expensive. There is economy of scale, so larger systems can and do save money, at least for people located in the right place.
If you have a remote cabin where there is no electric company, then this could be worth it.
Advice What Solar Panels To Purchase?
I Need Someone To Advice Me Which Solar Panels To Buy.
I Have Looked Into Few Companies And I Need Some More Info Before Deciding
The Companies I Checked Were Sun Tech Trina Solar Canadian Solar And Ldk Solar.
Whice Company Should I Pick??
Are you talking about buying panels, or investing in stock? LDK does not make panels, they make solar grade silicon that goes into panels.
I haven't heard bad buzz recently about any brand of panel. Therefore, I would go by price per watt alone. If you type in "solar panel price" into Google, you're sure to get directed to the major sellers, each of whom will sell many brands of panels. There are a couple other requirements that I would have for a serious system:
1) Safety certification such as UL. This will be legally required for a grid-tied system. All panels except the really fly-by-night brands and factory seconds have this.
2) 25-year performance warranty. It's standard now for a manufacturer to guarantee that their panel will still produce 80% of the rated output after 25 years. Older panels may say 20 years. Junk panels will have no such warranty, or something ridiculous like 90 days or 1 year.
3) Crystalline silicon. Monocrystalline or polycrystalline doesn't matter. Every few years, someone claims that they have an amorphous or thin-film technology that's durable. Being conservative, I'm still waiting for such things to be proven. Some crystalline panels have been in service since the 70's, although they are pitifully weak by today's standards. I've heard good things about the Sanyo HIT hybrid panels, but that's only from one person who had them installed.
Where Do I Find Solar Panels?
How Much Is The Cost Of Solar Panels Including Installation For My Home So That I Can Have Low Monthly Power Bills.
How much it costs, and whether it is worth it, really depends on where you live, and how much power you use.
A very conservative house like ours, in an ideal area, could get by with a system that costs $5000 to $7500 net after incentives like tax credits. A house that uses a lot of energy, like a massive one with air conditioning, could need an array costing ten times that much.
The only way to even get close on an estimate is to call a local solar installer for a quote. If there are no local solar installers, that's a clue that your area may not be very good for solar.
Consider solar hot water also. That's generally cheaper and pays back faster than solar electric.
Where Can You Learn About Solar Systems For Jobs?
Where Is The Best Place To Learn About Solar Panels And How They Are Installed Into Residential Or Com.
This could be answered several ways but since i dont knowq your location ill give you this one.
Call the manufacturers and find out who is offering dealer training. The courses usually cost a couple hundred dollars.
