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 unit, cleaning clothing, seeing 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 benefits of solar power are considerable, lots of property owners discover that the benefit, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Leading Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically reduce and even eliminate your electric costs
Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can comprise a large part of your regular monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate complimentary 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 lower your utility costs and you'll still save a great deal of loan.
#2 Make a terrific return on your investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the finest methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy expense cost savings, the typical American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the past ten years, residential electrical power rates have gone up by approximately three percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and secure versus unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a service or property owner with fluctuating capital, going solar also helps you much better forecast and manage your expenditures.
#4 Increase your property worth
Numerous studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher property values and offer faster 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 informed about solar, demand for properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part 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 price fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar market added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent way to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A common residential solar panel system will eliminate three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are necessary components of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding companies that decide to operate responsibly. Companies are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of customer purchasing choices, developing goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Lots of homeowners opt to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility business are well-known for their changing and undependable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can determine just how much electricity will be generated, and most significantly, at exactly what cost, for at least 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

- 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
Can Someone Tell Me About Solar Panels For Homes?
I Was Trying To Look Online For Solar Panels For My Home To Take Some Of The Strain Off Of Using Oil And Electricity But I Find It Very Hard To Understand Exactly How They Are Used.
Like One That I Looked Up Is 100 Watts.....Is That Like A Light Bulb Watt? How Many Things Can That Power?
Is It Really Cheaper In The Long Run Because The Panels Are Very Expensive?
If Anyone Has Web Sites That Can Explain This To Me I Would Appreciate A Link, Or Anyone To Answer Part Of My Question.
There are two types of devices that collect energy from the sun:
Solar photovoltaic modules use solar cells to convert light from the sun into electricity.
Solar thermal collectors use the sun's energy to heat water or another fluid such as oil or antifreeze
There is only a one time cost to installing solar panels.
The way to get the most for your money is, really to have them installed at the time of the home being built.
You have to figure, over-time, how long it will take regarding the cost of the solar panels vs the cost of your energy now.
In A Dc Circuit Running From Solar Panels To Batteries Do I Only Need One Diode In Series?
In A Dc Circuit Running From Solar Panels To Batteries Do I Only Need One Diode In Series?
I Am Connecting A Small Solar Panel To A Battery And Put Two Diodes In Series On The Positive And The Negative, But When I Only Put One In Circuit It Works Fine. Will This Prevent Backfeed Back Into The Solar Panel With Only One Diode In Series?
You only need a single diode inline between the solar panel and the battery. A diode acts like a one way valve. Place a diode on either wire effectively blocks reverse flow.
You may also consider a charge controller, unless you want to manually check voltages during the day and disconnect the solar panels when the battery is charged. Otherwise, you may overcharge the battery and damage it.
What Does Having Solar Shingles Or Panels Installed On The Roof Involve?
For A Small House, Can It Be Done In Conjunction With A Regular Asphalt Shingle Roof Replacement? How Does The Electrician Then Wire It Into The Existing System? Do They Need To Get Into The Walls Or Attic Or How Do They Connect It? In Other Words, How Much Disruption Would Be Expected In The Process And How Long Would It Take? Thanks!
Solar shingles are special shigles with a photo voltaic film on it that makes direct current electrcity (like a battery) when energized by converting the sun's rays. You need to have new solar shingles installed over the old ones.
Solar panels are installed either on the roof or on the ground.
Either way they need a collector box where all the panels or shingles are wired together, a disconnect (on off switch), and inverter (changes d.c. voltage to a.c.voltage energy to run household appliances or sell the excess back to the power company).
Some units require transformers if the output a.c. voltage is either to high or to low for your use.
Some people buy storage batteries to store up excess energy made from the sun to use during the night when the sun has set.
The time to get it installed varies on how complicated the system is.
Normally you get a survey first to see where is the best place to place it is. Shade from trees, buildings etc. can either loose part of the panels efficency or cause the whole panel to put out 0 volts.
A average installer with some mechanical and electrical ability can do it in a week end. A good installer can do it in less tah 1 day. But it may cost a couple hundred dollars.
Check with your state and the federal government. It can take 30% off the top or more in savings. Federal or off your income tax is easiest. State money is a first come first surve and the funds may be used for that year.
Plant Cell Analogy To A House?
I Need This Tonight Please Answer Now
Walls = Cell wall (because its a wall!)
Chloroplasts = Solar panels on the roof (gain energy from light)
Mitochondria = Generator in the basement (produce energy from fuel already in the cell/house)
Vacuole = Refrigerator/Storeroom (vacuoles store nutrients [they also keep the cell turgid, but I'm not sure how that analogy could apply to the house])
Nucleus = Study? (Nucleus is where all of the cell's functioning is ultimately determined, I guess instead of a study, you could decide to include the person who makes all the decisions in the house)
cell membrane = Windows (Lets things into the cell when needed, otherwise keeps them out, almost like how we can close/open windows in a house)
Endoplasmic reticulum OR ribosomes = Kitchen (ribosomes along with the ER produces all the goods the cell needs, and may also be involved in exporting those goods outside [in the kitchen analogy, this would be like people walking out with packed lunches I guess...])
Cell cytoplasm = hallway (everything has to travel through the cytoplasm to get anywhere else)
That's about all I can think of, hope it helps!
What Is A Reasonable Price For Enough Solar Panels To Power A Large Amount Of Condos And Other Buildings?
I'M Doing A School Project And We Need Ways To Be Green. I Have To Power A Retirement Community In Florida. I Have 15 Large Condos, 3 Beach Houses, 3 Restaurnats, A Pool, Gym, Hot Tub, Sauna, Grocery Store, Gas Station, And Several Offices. They Don'T Have To Power Everything But I Would Like To Be As Green As Possible. Also Maybe Other Suggestions On Good Ways To Go Green.
i would look at this in a diverse approch.
1. being that it is florida, i would start with using PV on the houses in combination with a couple of small peak mounted wind turbines (sources oynot.com, solardyne.com, sunwize.com and on and on).
2. condo's are different. they usually have flat roofs so the turbines would be out of the question and so would PV. Instead i would use hard mount solar panals, and try to be energy efficent in other areas of the construction.
3. the pool is an easy one. your in florida, unless you want to cool it in the summer, and heat it in the winter, then just run the water through a condenser that is in a solar water heater loop. and the same answers apply to the rest.
But the best ans is think about it before you build, build with the surroundings, and plan for it by being construction wise.
