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 unit, cleaning clothes, watching TV, 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 ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, many residents find that the benefit, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically minimize and even eliminate your electric costs
Whether you're a homeowner, company, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can make up a large part of your month-to-month costs. With a solar panel system, you'll generate free 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 decrease your utility expenses and you'll still save a great deal of loan.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy costs savings, the typical American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven 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 photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous ten years, residential electricity rates have actually increased by an average of 3 percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard against unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're an organisation or property owner with rising and falling cash circulation, going solar also helps you much better projection and manage your expenses.
#4 Boost your residential or commercial property value
Numerous research studies have discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for homes equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential component of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price variations in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A normal residential solar panel system will remove three to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are very important components of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that select to run responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of customer purchasing choices, creating goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Lots of homeowners pick to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- 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 Financial investment
The energy companies are well-known for their varying and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical energy will be produced, and most significantly, at exactly what price, 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
- 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.

Why Isnt Solar Energy Used To Heat Homes Anymore?
Because they cannot charge you for the energy you get from the sun. Oil, gas and electric companies make money by selling you their energy. Once you construct solar panels, your energy is now free. This is why solar power has been held back.
How Do I Repair A Pinhole Leak In The Copper Tubing Of A Solar Panel That I Use To Heat My Swimming Pool?
There are really only three routes you can go, all are really temporary fixes and I'll explain why in a min.
1/ You can cut the pipe, usuing a pip cutter, at the spot and solder in a coupling of the appropriate size. Whoever posted that you can't use a propane torch for this is incorrect. You can solder copper up to 1 1/2 inches, easily, with a normal porpane torch, if you know what you're doing.
2/ That old inner tube you have lying around, can be cut and have a patch doubled up, placed over the pin hole and use a gear clamp (hose clamp) to tighten and hold in place. Viola, home made saddle clamp. Add some goop if you want.
3/ Cut the pipe at the leak and use a rubber coupling sized accordingly. You'll be able to find these at a plumbing shop. It's just a rubber sleeve that fits over each end of cut pipe and is held in place by a hose clamp each side. It does the same job as a copper coupling, without the need to solder.
These are temp fixes, you'll soon be replacing that entire section of pipe. If you have a pin hole in one spot, the copper has been corroded enough, that it will likely let go in another spot soon.
Goop, that someone else posted in here, is fine for a small suction leak, this is a pressure leak, and it won't do the job for long, if at all by itself. You could use it in conjunction with the rubber patch however.
You may want to investigate why the copper corroded on you as well. Check your water chemistry at a local pool shop for free ( you water may be off balance and very agressive) and also have a look at how your sanitizer dispenser is plumbed in. It should have it's outlet in the return, AFTER all the pool equipment, including the solar. If not, little wonder you have an issue, it's dumping raw chlorine or bromine directly into some of the most sensitive areas of your plumbing. If you're dumping pucks in the skimmer, same thing. If it is a Larson's brominator, that was plumbed in as per the maual, re do it. The manual is wrong and they never got around to revising it.

Air Conditioner 125 Volt 15 Amps: How Many Solar Panels And Batteries To Run 24/7?
I Have A Cabin That Is Way Out In The Middle Of No Where, It Would Cost 1000'S Of Dollars To Get Power To It.
If I Have A 8,000 Btu Air Conditioner That Runs On 125 Volts And 15 Amps (Or 1875 Watts)
How Many Solar Panels Will I Need To Run This During The Day, Plus Charge The Batteries To Run It All Night?
How Many Batteries Would I Need
OK, in addition to the solar panels, you wil need an inverter (DC to AC; 12V t0 120V) capable of delivering 20A continuously and as much as 40A for the compressor starting surge, and a fairly large battery bank capable of delivering something over 2000 watts continuously (losses in the charging and conversion process) as well as the surge.
So, if your actual demand is now calculated around 2000 watt/hour, and you need to both run the unit and charge batteries during the daylight hours - and considering that the ideal charging rate for a lead-acid battery is on the order of 10% of its capacity, you will need a huge reserve on the battery section and a huge excess on the solar section to make up for the 5 hours maximum input.
So, the average high-quality deep-discharge battery will do about 400Ah @ 12.6V. Which comes to 5040 watts for one hour. For round figures, it will give you 2000 watts for 2.5 hours. You will need a minimum of eight of them just to make your system run for the 19 hours you are anticipating. Given that you do not want to run the batteries to zero each night, a 50% reserve would be a wise investment - comes to now twelve (12) batteries.
Now, you will have to make 2000 watts (to run the unit) and also produce and another 8600 (per hour for five hours) watts to charge the batteries for the next night. Again, for round figures, you will need 10,000 watts of solar power, or seventy (70) panels.
At ~10 watts/s.f. (100 watts/meter), that comes to about 1000 square feet or 100 square meters. Modern non-crystaline panels may reduce this by 20%, or so but no more than that.
You will be charging the batteries at roughly 20% of their discharge capacity - which will pretty much cut their service live in half, or so. As the average deep-discharge battery has about an 8-year life span under ideal conditions (and your situation will be far from ideal) you may expect to replace them every four years or so with good care. Much less with no care.
Cell Organelles As A School?
How Would Cell Wall, Cell Membrane, Nucleus, Nucleolus, Endoplasmic Reticulum, Chloroplasts, Mitochondria, Ribosomes, Golgi Apparatus, Cytoplasm, And Vacuoles Be Described As A School. Example Like The Nucleus Could Be The Principal Or Superintendent.
Thanks So Much!
Cell membrane - the school boundaries where you can't pass without permission, like a classroom door (like diffusion).
Cell wall - more rigid in structure, like walls instead of a door you could open.
Nucleolus- this is the center of the nucleus and where transcription take place, so it can be related to superintendents as opposed to the nucleus which would be more a principal.
ER - protein synthesis, among other functions - could equate this to student filing into the cafeteria line getting what they need (food). And traveling out.
Golgi - packages proteins - maybe for students who run errands between teachers and fetch things, or mailmen who deliver packages/ supplies to the school
Ribosomes - site of protein synthesis - report cards/ grading - that's where it makes you or breaks you. Getting a test back; it's a source of energy whether it's stress or anxiety. Something is synthesizing!
Vacuoles - water - water fountain
Cytoplasm- the insides like hallways and such, where things can pass and get where they need to go. Thruways, if you will.
Mitochondria - ATP and energy! Gym class and pumping iron or anything sports related. The football team, etc.
Chloroplasts - convert light energy into chemical energy; if the school has solar panels it would relate. Or even conversion charts and scales you would find in school since it turns one unit of measure into another easier unit of measure.
