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 everyday life: running your air conditioner, washing clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, lots of home owners find that the benefit, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically decrease and even eliminate your electrical expenses
Whether you're a property owner, company, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can comprise a large portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your energy costs and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy bill cost savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the previous 10 years, property electrical power rates have gone up by an average of 3 percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and protect versus unforeseeable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a business or homeowner with ever-changing cash flow, going solar also assists you better forecast and handle your costs.
#4 Increase your home value
Multiple research studies have discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and sell quicker than non-solar homes. 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 informed about solar, need for properties 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 an essential part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost variations in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included tasks 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 development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a terrific 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 typical residential photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are necessary elements of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that opt to operate responsibly. Organisations are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of customer purchasing decisions, producing goodwill and improving business results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Many house owners decide to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
Since 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 well-known for their varying and undependable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can compute how much electricity will be generated, and most importantly, at what rate, 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
What'S Up With My Solar Panel?
I Have (2) 22010 Sunlinq Solar Panels And I Decided To Try One Out Today. Each Is Rated At 12W 12V 800Ma. My Batteries In My Xbox Controller Ran Out So I Figured I Would Charge Them With My Solar Panel. I Had Good Sun This Morning. When I Hooked Everything Together The 'Ready' Light Was Lit For About 10 Seconds, Then The 'Charge' Lights In Both Bays Of My Charger Began Blinking. I Switched The Batteries To The Other Bay, But Got The Same Result So I Took Them Inside And Plugged The Same Charger And Batteries Into The Wall Outlet And They Started Charging And Finally Finished. I Tested My Solar Panel In Good Morning Sun And Got 15+ Volts. Does That Sound Probable? I Bought Some Expensive Rechargeable Batteries And Would Like Them Not To Be Destroyed. I Read The Instructions That Came With The Charger And It Says It Has A Bad Cell Detection Feature And Will Flash The 'Charge' Lights When A Bad Battery Is Detected. But They Work Fine When Plugged Into The Wall Outlet. I Am A Novice In The Area So Any Help Is Appreciated.
How were you connecting your batteries to the solar panels? If you were connecting them directly to the 12V output from the panels you were probably overloading the panels and causing the voltage to drop. You could probably charge 10 NiMH or NiCd batteries in series. The voltage of the batteries would add up to 12 volts and be fairly compatible with your solar cells. If you connected them in parallel so the voltage of the batteries were still 1.2 volts and could easily take far more than the 800 mA your solar panels put out. This would cause the voltage from the solar panels to drop and the panels would assume a bad battery and blink the warning.
How Effective Are Solar Panels Now In N E With Our 40&Quot;+ Snowfall This Month?
How Does The Snow Cover Get Removed From The Panels?
Just as there are three types of solar panels there are three answers + to your question. For solar photovoltaic panels that are used to make electricity the fine print that comes with the panels says that you have to remove the snow from the panels in order for them to work. There are actually rakes made for this purpose. http://www.roofrake.com/Productpages/sno... As an aside the efficiency of the panels will also be maintained if the panels are cleaned of dust and debris. The maintenance of removing snow and dust is one argument for having the panels on a rack on the ground.
Solar Thermal panels are intended to capture the sun's heat. Two types that make hot water are flat panels and vacuum tube collectors. The vacuum tube collectors work better in colder and cloudy areas but their efficiency prevents heat loss that might melt snow. Most of a light snow will fall between them but you are back to maintenance with a heavier snow. Flat panels are less efficient and will melt a light snow off of the panels for a heavier snow you will need the roof rake.
The last type of solar panel are solar air panels. These are most often mounted on the side of a house rather than the roof as they are intended to provide hot air to the living spaces. They are essentially like little greenhouses. Unless the snow is building up against the side of the house these should be free from a snow problem.
How Do Solar Panel Led Grow Lights Work?
I'M Just Curious Because Would You Be Able To Put Them On A Timer Like 18/6 On Or 12/12 Because A Lot Of Plants Are Photo-Period
To replace a $150 400 watt metal halide lamp with solar powered LED's would break down as follows.
60 watts of LED $150
60 watts of solar panel with inverter $250.
2) deep cycle 12V batteries $200.
$600 vs $150
When You Power A House With Solar Panels.....?
The Batteries That The Solar Panels Charge For Nighttime, How Long Do They Last? Like Total Lifetime
Unless you live in a remote location there is no need to have a storage system. I have a system that is tied to the grid, I generate about 75% of my own energy. During the day when I'm generating more than I need I sell it back to my utility, basically my meter runs backwards, then at night I use what I need. This type of system is much less expensive than an off grid system. With my state rebate and fed. tax credit, I will break even no later than my 6th year.
Advantages And Disadvantages Of Using Solar Panels?
Solar energy is a renewable energy resource and there are no fuel costs. No harmful polluting gases are produced.
Solar cells are expensive and inefficient, so the cost of their electricity is high.
Solar panels may only produce very hot water in very sunny climates, and in cooler areas may need to be supplemented with a conventional boiler.
Although warm water can be produced even on cloudy days, neither solar cells nor solar panels work at night.
