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 use the sun to power daily life: running your ac system, washing clothes, viewing TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are substantial, lots of property owners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically lower or even eliminate your electrical expenses
Whether you're a homeowner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a big part of your monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce 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 lower your energy costs and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.
#2 Make an excellent return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs savings, the average American homeowner settles their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against increasing energy expenses
Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, residential electricity prices have gone up by approximately three percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and secure versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're a business or homeowner with rising and falling capital, going solar also assists you better projection and handle your expenses.
#4 Boost your home worth
Multiple studies have actually found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater home worths and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups 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 homes equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key element of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a great method to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A normal property solar panel system will remove 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are essential components of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding services that decide to operate responsibly. Organisations are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of customer buying decisions, developing goodwill and improving service outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Lots of homeowners opt to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar company for electrical power-- 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 fluctuating and undependable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and simple math, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical energy will be produced, and most importantly, at what rate, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).
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
How Do Solar Cells Create Electrical Energy?
Can You Give Me A Basic Explanation, In 3 Or 4 Sentences, On How Solar Cells Convert Light Energy Into Electrical Energy. Also, What Is The Difference Between Solar Cells And Solar Panels?
Thanks A Lot ;D
Sunlight is composed of particles of light energy, also known as photons. When these particles of light energy hit the photo, some will deflect or pass through, but others will dislodge electrons on the silicon (silicon is the substance out of which most Solar energy plans are made of). The silicon has been treated to allow free electrons to gather on one side. When enough electrons have been forced to one side, it creates a potential difference between the two sides of the cell. The cell now is similar to a battery, with a positive side and a negative side. Once the cell is connected to an external load, it starts supplying energy.
Is There A Way To Tell How Much Solar Energy Will Be Produced Based On Location?
For Instance, In Colorado, More Wattage Can Be Produced In A Solar Cell Than In Ohio. Is There Way To Tell The Difference?
Insolation maps can be found here: http://rredc.nrel.gov/solar/old_data/nsr...

How Many Watts Solar Panel Should Be Consider For A Home?
Im From India & Im Planing To Setup A Solar Panel For My Home Which Can Help Me And My Family To Get Rid Of Idiotic Bills And Save Money As Much As Possible
In A 24Hrs Im Running All The Things Like
,All Day Long Chargeable Ports,
I Wanted To Know How Many Watts Solar Panel Needed To Setup Up For My Home
What Kind Of Solar Panel Should I Install At My Home So That I Can Save Energy As Well As Run For 24Hrs
The panels need to have a reservoir to supply loads greater than the panels can supply, such as on dull days, or when the airconditioner starts. There are two approaches.
1) Connect the panels to an electricity grid using a special inverter so they supply the grid when there is excess power and the grid supplies your house when there is insufficient power. This is called grid connect or grid tie system. In this case whatever you can afford, starting about 1.5kW rated panel capacity. The economics depends on what your supplier will pay for taking your excess power. This method supplements your bill. As a single panel is likely around 200W, the minimum system is likely around 8-10 panels. The largest size is dictated by what you can pay, the space available with no shading, and the amount the supplier will allow you to connect, though this is likely 5kW of panel capacity. The amount of energy you get per day from a system is something like:
Energy_kWh = panel_capacity_kW * 0.75 * equivalent_full_sun_hours.
Allows 80% of panel capacity (temperature of panels)
Allows 5% for other losses like wiring and inverter.
The equivalent full sun hours is for a clear sky, 2 to 5h/day depending where you are.
Does not allow for dull days, shading effects, dust.
2) A stand alone system uses large batteries and a large panel array to supply all your needs. This is more expensive and needs more careful sizing. The charging of batteries wastes an additional 40%, so you may consume 30kWh/d and need panels with something like 60kWh per day capacity for your region, so at least 12kW capacity of panels. Similarly large batteries. The inverter may be around 5kW.This is not likely to be attractive.
You didn't mention hot water? Think of a solar heater for this.
Does The Federal Government Have Too Much Power In Regulating Where It Dumps Radioactive Waste?
&Quot;Washington Voters Don'T Have The Authority To Stop The Dumping Of Radioactive Waste In The State, According To A Ruling Wednesday By The 9Th U.S. Circuit Court Of Appeals.
In 2004, Nearly 70 Percent Of Voters Approved Initiative 297, Which Banned The Import And Disposal Of Hazardous Waste At The Hanford Nuclear Reservation Until The Massive, Polluted Site Was Cleaned Up. &Quot;
Basically This Rules Allows Radioactive Material To Be Dump In Any State Even Against The Overwhelming Majority Of The Voters.
Imo The Federal Government Has Gone Beyond It Bonds And Is Seriously Infringing On State Rights. Would An Issue Like This Other Other Issues (I.E. War, Abortion, Eminent Domain, Etc) Compel You To Want Your State To Succeed From The Federal Government?
I agree that the government has way too much power. But nuclear energy will be a bad idea until we can find a way to make it truly safe. If our descendents find the stuff in 10,000 years, and if they have no idea of the technology involved, we will end up destroying our own future. Storing nuclear waste this way is pure idiocy. But then, that's what bureaucrats are all about.
How Would You Explain How Energy Is Made From Alternative Forms To A Fourth Grader ?
How Electrical Energy Is Made From Alternative Form Of Energy
For alternative energy that comes from something that moves like geothermal, hydro, wind, tidal, you say that the stuff flows through a turbine, which has blades like an airplane propeller, and that turns a generator, like the one on your bike that runs the light. There are several kinds of solar, and some heat water to drive a turbine. You don't have to explain how solar cells work - you can point to a solar calculator, and say that this patch produces electricity, and it can be done with really big patches.
Fourth graders know how to do math, like multiply and divide. That's pretty sophisticated.
