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 resident to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c unit, washing clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while decreasing 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 considerable, lots of residents find that the benefit, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Leading Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly minimize or even remove your electric bills
Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can make up a big portion of your month-to-month costs. With a solar panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your energy costs and you'll still save a lot of money.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power expense cost savings, the typical American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the past 10 years, property electricity prices have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard against unforeseeable increases in electricity costs. If you're a company or homeowner with ever-changing cash flow, going solar likewise assists you much better projection and manage your costs.
#4 Increase your home worth
Multiple research studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, demand 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 a key component of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate changes in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a terrific method to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A common residential solar panel system will eliminate 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are essential elements of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that select to run properly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of customer purchasing decisions, developing goodwill and improving organisation results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Lots of homeowners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
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 notorious for their changing and unreliable electricity prices. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can compute just how much electricity will be produced, and most notably, at exactly what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 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
5O Watts Solar Panel With 100Amp Battery But The Controller Is Not Bringing Out Hight Output Its Not Powering?
Powering The Radios I Want It To Power. How Do I Step Up The Out Put Voltage. Should I Increase The Wattage Of The Solar Panell Or Use A Step Up Transformer Or Change The Controller Because The Solar Panel Is 5Owatts And On The Controller They Wrote 120 Watts. A Friend Told Me It Worked For Him But Its Not Working For Me. What Do I Need To Do
Question is, what voltage and power is the radio you wish to power? If it is AC and either 120v or 230v you will need an inverter to convert the 12v to AC supply.
The fact that the controller is 120 Watts will not matter that you have a 50 Watt panel. It should still work and charge the battery. You should be able to put an ammeter in series with the power from the controller to the battery and see that it is charging in sunlight.
How Many Solar Panels Could £3 Million Get Me,And How Many Homes Would That Power?
For the price on solar panels and their output, consider:
Next, consider the outputs to be maximum for when the sun is shining directly on them. What you will actually get depends on where you are, and how often it is cloudy. Also, it depends on whether you install the panels statically, or on a surfaces that automatically move to tract the sun. The actual capture of radiation is theoretically:
Actual Power = (Solar Power)sin(angle between the Panel and the rays)
Usually, it will be better than the equation above since the Maximum power will not capture every photon anyway as the Panel becomes saturated. But do not expect the power to be much better. If your Panel is pointing at noon time sun for the day, expect it to get only half the power of a Panel that actively tracks the sun. Since noon sun is different every day, expect your Panel to do even less if its angle is not adjusted every day. If you do not do this, you will loose another 8% over time.
For a totally static Panel, the best angle is to orient your panel so that it points straight upward, then adjust it downward in the due South direction (or due North if you are in the Southern Hemisphere) the number of degrees indicated by the geological latitude. If for some economic reason, you wish to choose a different orientation, the resultant efficiency will be:
Efficiency = cos(angle from optimum)
How much electricity a home uses depends on where it is located, and the habits of the inhabitants. In the USA, a typical home requires about 24 KWH per day. If you are planning to use solar power to run these homes, you will either need to have some auxillary power source to power them when the sun is not shining, or some method like batteries to store the electric power. At least some buffering of power will be needed to manage variable power demands. Cost all of that out as well. Also, remember that the power you will get will be low voltage DC. The conversion to AC will require some expensive equipment as well. Expect to lose 15% of your power in conversion and transmission (assuming that the distance is not great).
Are There Taxes On Solar Panels That You Put On Your Roof?
My Roommate Thinks The Government Taxes $1600 You For Every Solar Panel You Put On The Roof. This Makes No Sense To Me. I Would Think That The Government Would Encourage Solar Power. I Live In The Usa In The State Of Idaho. I'Ve Googled Extensively And Have Yet To Find Any Evidence Of A Solar Panel Tax, But Perhaps I'M Missing Something. Is There A Solar Panel Tax In Idaho, Usa Or Anywhere In The Country For That Matter?
Sales and use taxes YES.
Contact the seller of the solar panels in IDAHO and they would be able to verify this information for you at that time RIGHT.
Tax credits for installing solar panels are available when you install them.
Residential Energy Efficient Property Credit This tax credit helps individual taxpayers pay for qualified residential alternative energy equipment, such as solar hot water heaters, solar electricity equipment and wind turbines. The credit, which runs through 2016, is 30 percent of the cost of qualified property.
Add State and Local Incentives to the 30% Federal Tax Credit

Which Solar Panels Can Be Used To Power A Regular Box Fan That Normally Plugs Into A Standard Electric Outlet?
The fan needs 110V AC (or 220V some places)
The solar panel makes DC, probably 12V.
You need an inverter and probably a storage battery. You'd do better to get a low-voltage more efficient fan.
Why Is 'Going Green' So Expensive??
Just Wondering. I Want To Help The Environment But Its All So Expensive??
Why Is That?
The technology is expensive. It's expensive to try and reverse the things we've already done to the environment. But it's worth it. For example it cost in the thousands to get solar panels for your house. But it's worth it because of the money you save on power.
