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 air conditioning system, washing clothing, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, many residents discover that the convenience, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably decrease or even remove your electrical expenses
Whether you're a homeowner, business, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a large part of your month-to-month costs. With a solar panel system, you'll create free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power costs cost savings, the typical American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical power costs have increased by approximately three percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and protect against unpredictable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a business or house owner with rising and falling capital, going solar also helps you better forecast and manage your expenses.
#4 Boost your home or business worth
Numerous studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, need for homes equipped 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 attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a great way to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A typical residential solar panel system will eliminate 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are necessary components of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding organisations that decide to run properly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of customer acquiring choices, developing goodwill and improving company outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no money down.
Many house owners opt to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The energy business are infamous for their changing and undependable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can determine just how much electricity will be created, and most notably, at what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty 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

Solar Panels And Electrocution?
Is There Any Chance Of Being Electrocuted By Solar Panels?
Is There A Risk For Firefighters When They Enter A Building Where There Is Solar Power And Stand In A Puddle Of Water If There Is Short Between The Solar Panels And The Water.
They Cut Normal Power Before Entering Buildings, But Do You Get Enough Juice From Residential Solar Panels To Consider This As A Risk?
solar panels are usually 12 or 24 volts for the smaller ones, and those voltages are pretty safe.
larger arrays can be connected in series or parallel, depending on the battery configuration. It's likely for a large installation to produce 48 volts or even higher, and those voltages can be dangerous.
Higher voltages are used on large installations to cut down on the cost of the wiring.
But, any solar array has an inverter somewhere, running off a battery, and that will output 120 or 240 VAC, and that is definitely dangerous.
So this raises an interesting point. Should all solar panel installations include a cutoff switch accessible to fire fighters? It looks like they should. The switch has to cutoff the voltage from the array, and also turn off the inverter.
edit: but switching off the voltage from the array is not enough, as the array is still putting out power (assuming the sun is shining). One possibility is to use a multiple pole relay located very near the array to open both + and – leads from the array. Thus there is no path for the current to get to ground. If water got everything wet, the array would short across itself but still be isolated from ground. But what if the relay fails?
Max, you seem to have the idea that it takes a lot of current to be dangerous. No, 20mA can shock you, 50mA can kill you, and there are a lot of arrays that can put out 48 volts at many amps.
"edit: you could place a normal off switch on the solar array and hook it up to the fire alarm for industrial systems, the switch should open even when power fails. And you are correct in saying that it is the current that kills, but you still have to have enough volts to get a decent current trough a human (no mater what the max current output is). The real question is then do solar panels have a fixed current output (then its dangerous) or a fixed voltage (then with max 50 volts is even wet not a problem)"
sorry, 50 volts IS a problem, lots of people have been killed from 50 volts. I admit it is not as likely as with 100 or 200 volts, but it is still possible, specially with a lot of water around. I don't remember the UL spec offhand, but I think it is somewhere around 20 volts.
solar panels have a variable voltage, dependent on the amount of light on them. You have to plan on the highest possible voltage. The current output is usually in the tens of amps or higher, more than enough to kill, so it is the voltage that will determine the current through your body.
edit3: dividing up the world into constant voltage sources and constant current sources is meaningless, as neither exists in real life. All voltage sources are a imperfect voltage source or an imperfect current source or something in between.
Where Is Silicon Found And What Is It Used For?
I Have To Do A Project For Science And I Need To Know The Answer To What I Am Asking
I think sand is silicon. It used for Solar Panels and Transistors in Electronics also I believe Glass. This about all I know. I not make any promises. Do a search for Silicon.
Below I found you 2 links. The first is Wikipedia and the second is "How Stuff Works". The second always a good place to learn some things if they have that subject.
Which Is Better To Use, Windmill Or Solar Panel? For Electricity?
Which Is Better To Use?
For My Own Island...
Solar Panel. Windmill produces less energy.
How Much Power Does A Solar Panel Generate?
Given That I Am Going To Purchase A Solar Panel To Charge My Cell Phones And Other Gadgets, I Would Like To Know What The Ammount Of Power Produced By A 6 Watt Solar Panel Is Under Regular Circumstances. (Ie Partial Sun, Full Sun, Cloudy)
That site tells you somewhat about the cost of solar panels and their MAXIMUM output.
Now some who have these panels claim output, in daily terms, 8 times as great as maximum output, which says they are counting on 8 hours of effective sunlight. In California Desert that is sound.
You will discover that Ontario Power grid is planning for 3 hours to 4 hours of maximum output . Based on that 3 to 4 hours of maximum output, it would take close to 20 years to recover your cost at the price Ontario pays for solar power. The deal locks you in so that you can not get more money as electricity prices go up, and do not lose if electricity prices go down over that 20 years.
