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 home owners to use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothes, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while reducing 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 homeowners discover that the benefit, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically reduce or perhaps remove your electric expenses
Whether you're a homeowner, company, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can comprise a large part of your month-to-month expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your utility bills and you'll still conserve a lot of money.
#2 Make a terrific return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity expense cost savings, the average American homeowner settles their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the past ten years, property electricity prices have gone up by approximately three percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect versus unforeseeable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're an organisation or property owner with ever-changing cash circulation, going solar likewise assists you better projection and manage your costs.
#4 Boost your home or business value
Numerous research studies have actually found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater property values and offer quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, demand for properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential element of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added 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 expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a terrific method to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A normal domestic photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are essential components of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that pick to operate properly. Organisations are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of consumer buying decisions, developing goodwill and improving company results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Many property owners opt to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The energy companies are infamous for their fluctuating and undependable electrical energy rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate how much electricity will be produced, and most significantly, at exactly what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired 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

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
Questions About Solar Panels And Batteries?
I Have A Few Questions About Solar Panels And Batteries.
1. Looks To Me That 60 Watt Solar Panels Are The Most Common And Cost Efficient. I Understand That A 60 Watt Panel Produces 60 Watts Of Power At 12Vdc. Lets Say I Have Five Hours Sun On The Panel. How Long Would It Take For A 60 Watt Panel To Charge A Standard 12 Vdc Battery From Basically Dead To Full Charge. I Know It Depends On The Type Of Battery, But Let'S Just Call It A Standard Car Type Battery. Looking For Just General Info Not Exact Science Info.
2. If One Panel Is Capable Of Charging One Battery In Less Than 5 Hours Of Sun. How Many Batteries Can It Charge Completely In 5 Hours Of Sun?
3. Using A 12 To 120 Volt Power Converter To Get 120 Volts From A Battery How Many Watts Of Power Are You Able To Pull From A Battery Before The Charge Is To Low To Be Usable Without A Recharge. Again, I Know There Are Variables To Take Into Consideration, But I'M Looking For Just General Answers. Like For Example, &Quot;X&Quot; Watts Of Use For&Quot;X&Quot; Hours.
4. I Assume A 60 Watt Panel Is A 60 Watt Panel? Meaning, All 60 Watt Panels Are Created Equal, They Basically All Produce Basically The Same Amount Of Power With Basically The Same Efficiency.
5. With A Solar Panel Is It Better To Catch The Morning Sun Or Afternoon Soon Or Does It Matter? I Understand The More Amount Of Sun You Catch, The Better.
6. In Order To Take Advantage Of The Tax Credit, Do You Have To Use A Professional Installer Or If I Buy The Panels, Converter, Batteries, Etc, Myself And Install Myself Can I Claim The Tax Credit?
1. A 60 watt panel produces 12 vdc @ 5 amps at maximum sun. Realistic power is about 70% average throughout the day. So, your output will be about 40 watts. Take a battery with a reserve rating of 120 minutes. That is it will take 120 minutes for the battery to drop to 10.2 v when discharged at a constant 25 amps. That's about 250 watts in two hrs. To recharge the battery, you have to put back 250 watts in 2 hrs (not realistic - battery damage). But 40 watts recharge will take 12.5 hrs to recharge the battery.
2. Can't answer. How much less than 5 hrs? But a 60 watt panel won't recharge the battery in 5 hrs.
3. Inverters are only about 75% efficient (depending upon design). Usually, when battery power drops below 10 volts, the inverter shuts down. And that would depend upon reserve capacity of the battery and how much power you draw from the inverter. A 120 minute reserve capacity battery with a 75% efficient inverter gives you 90 minutes at 300 watts (12 v @ 25 amps).
4. Any assumptions about this item makes all other calculations unuseable.
5. The sun at high noon is the brightest - less atmosphere to scatter the sun's rays.
6. The tax credit only applies if you have it professionally installed and tied to the electrical grid. It may also apply to 100% off-grid systems. It does not apply to self-installed units. Our utility will not permit self-installed solar systems to be tied into the grid. Yours may.
How Much Would A Solar Panel To Run A Two Story House Cost And Would It Work In Th Rain And Cloudy Days?
If you can make enough on sunny days to make up for the cloudy ones, you can store it for later.
Off grid this would be in batteries. Grid-tied would push the excess into the grid that you could pull power from when needed.
You get the best cost/value ration for Solar Thermal. It takes a lot of energy to heat up water. The sun can do this fairly cheaply. The standard American home could use a 2 - 6 kW Photovoltaic system.
The going rate is about $6 to $8 per watt. So that would be $12,000 to $48,000.
1200Va Ups 70Watts Solar Panel, 100Ah Deep Cycle Battery And 350 Watts Load?
I Have An Old 1200Va Computer Ups And I Intend To Get A 100Ah Deep Cycle Battery In Addition To A 70 Watts Solar Panel For Charging And The Load Is 350Watts.
I Would Like To Know If The 70Watts Solar Panel Can Effectively Charge The Battery During The Day And With My 350 Watts Load, How Many Hours The Battery Will Last And If The Ups Is Suitable As A Good Alternative To A 600Va Inverter.
Recommendations And Suggestions Are Welcome.
I have done the same thing before. The ups will run your stuff. You will simply need to take the battery out and use your larger deep cycle battery to power it. You may need to disable the alarm buzzer that tells you if the line voltage fails. Most UPS power backups have an alarm.
The last person answered correctly with 2 hours of running time after ten hours of sunlight to charge your battery. But - this is in near perfect conditions. In reality, the sun hardly shines all the time without clouds. The angle of the solar panel must be correct. In my first experiments, many years ago, I did the match, but didn't take these points into consideration and ruined my batteries.
There is a solar power requirements calculator on the website listed below. Plug in your numbers and it tells you exactly what size solar panel you will need.
Questions For Using Solar Panels To Heat A Pool?
It Is Just A Little 3 Foot Pool But We Have All Shade And The Water Is Freezing. I Bought One Panel To Put On Our Roof. Will The Pump That Came With The Pool Be Strong Enough Or Do I Need A New Pump. It Is A 110/120V Pump.
my father tried this 20 years ago. He used a home made 4x8 foot panel mounted were it got a lot of southern sunlight. Did it make the pool toasty-no, but it did make a nice difference! All he did was circulate part of the water from one jet through the 3/4 inch pipe in the heater. no extra pump required. Besides, dad was too cheap to pay for the electricity to run an extra pump!
How Much Money Do Solar Panels Cost?
Planning To Get One, For A Store/House, We Use Alot Of Electricity At Least 1500-3000 Dollars A Month. How Much Money Would This Save Us? How Big Would We Have To Get The Solar Panel?[Aproximately]
In the US, the average electric cost $.15/kw-hr. $2500 means you are using 16700 Kw-hr/month or 550 kw-hr/day.
Since solar panel only make peak kw for about 5 hours per day (in sunny places like (AZ) you will need a 110 kw system. Solar systems cost about $7/watt so your system will cost about $750,000. The government my pay for about $250,000, so be prepared to spend one half a million dollars.
You will also spend about $250/month on maintenance of the system. The system will lose about 1%/year of it's efficiency, so the system will be paid for in 240 months, or 20 years. With in 5 years after the system is paid for, they will have to be replaced, the cost will be another 2 million dollars.
