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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothing, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are substantial, many residents discover that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably minimize or perhaps remove your electric expenses
Whether you're a house owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can make up a big part of your monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your utility costs and you'll still save a lot of money.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy bill cost savings, the average American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus increasing energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electricity rates have actually increased by an average of 3 percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and protect versus unforeseeable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a company or homeowner with rising and falling money circulation, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and handle your expenditures.
#4 Boost your home or business value
Numerous studies have actually discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and offer more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost fluctuations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is an excellent method to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A common residential solar panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are very important components of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding services that pick to run responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of consumer getting choices, producing goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Numerous house owners decide to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The utility companies are notorious for their changing and undependable electrical energy prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can determine just how much electrical power will be produced, and most notably, at exactly what cost, for at least 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
What Kind Of Life Do You Expect To Live When Green Techology Is The Norm?
What Do You Envision With No Coal Plants, No Nuclear Plants, And Electric Bills Beyond Your Affordability? What Do You Do When Gas Is $7 Per Gallon? How Do You Get To Work With No Mass Transit In Place Except In The Urban Areas? How Will You Keep Warm In The Winter And Cool In The Summer? Do You Think Windmills And Solar Panels Are Going To Cut It?
There won't be the freedom and liberty that Americans have become accustomed to because the have the "green technology" requires draconian government controls.
As an engineer, the "green technologies" are not viable due to a few laws of physics and chemistry. It is impossible to economically take a diffuse energy source like wind or sun and concentrate it so that it can be distributed to heat and cool our homes, run our industries, etc. It can't be done.
So, life expectancy will go down, infant mortality will go up, and generally our quality of life will be much lower. Without affordable energy, we won't have the power to make our medical devices and materials and drug affordable and easily obtainable throughout the country. Therefore, that pediatric ICU and all the gadgets that keep at risk newborns alive will be much harder to come by and much more expensive. That will result in higher infant mortality.
Basically, our life will be like we lived about 100 years ago. With all the challenges that implies.
What Are Your Opinions On Global Warming (Does It Effect You, Is It Happening, Are We Causing It, And Will It Change The Earth Comeletly (Keep It G-Rated))
u would like to kno
Let me start off by saying we (my family and I) live 100% off of the grid and are completely self-sufficient with a 0% Carbon footprint. I believe this is the first step anyone can make “help the environment”. Once you convert your own life style to a greener more eco friendly route, you can start helping others.
We definitely didn't start global warming, but we definitely do contribute to it now.
Natural gas (or Methane along with other thanes) for example, is completely a natural contributer to global warming and is derived pretty much the same way as oil. ie. Matter (animal, plant etc) decomposes over time resulting in a anaerobic (hope I spelled that right) decay of non-fossil organic material / gas (natural gas or methane).
One problem with global warming is that the concept is so vague in the minds of the people. The critical interpretation is basically how it’s explained in school and the news. However most of the public see global warming connected with the ozone and pollutants which cause harmful greenhouse gasses, etc. therefore investigating and fighting for things like alternative energy (ie. Solar, wind, hydrogen, ethanol, biodiesel, etc)
Greenhouse gases are real and do contribute to global warming. Think of the different gas layers like ozone (o3) that circumference the globe as the clear plastic on a greenhouse. Longer rays of light from the Sun go in and reflect off different thermal masses bouncing back and creating shorter lengths of energy that cannot exist the plastic barrier. These beams then just continue to bounce around inside the green house until they’re finally absorbed completely (some do escape but very few), thereby warming the greenhouse greatly even in cold temperatures.
Basically there are 2 ways that this reaction (or lack of) affects the planet. Global warming and global cooling.
1. as we add to the gases in the stratosphere, where the ozone layer is (Carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, etc), we add to the plastic of the greenhouse, trapping more short wave length energy and heating the earth more.
2. as we deplete the ozone (with chlorofluorocarbons or CFCs), we allow more long wave length energy, which bounces back out to space without heating any thermal masses on earth, thereby cooling the planet.
It’s pretty easy to see the results..
Melting ice sheets & glaciers
Floods & droughts
Great hurricanes & cyclones
New & resurgent diseases
There are many ways to stop both global warming and cooling from accruing or at least slow them down until we can discover a way to reverse it, but Stop burning fossil fuels is the biggest.
I currently own 2 converted h2 vehicles which run on 100% hydrogen and 1 EV (electric vehicle), not to mention our home is completely off the grid, using alternative energy (solar, wind, etc)

How Much Electricity Does An Average Solar Panel Generate?
I'M Talking About The Average Roof Panel, Maybe 3' X 5', And On A Sunny Day.
Is It Enough To Run A Large Appliance By Itself? How Many Small Load Wall Sockets (I.E. Ones With Small Lamps, Clock Radios) Could Be Run On One Panel?
maybe 150 watts, enough for a few light bulbs, possibly a small TV. Add up the wattage numbers of the items you want to run and see if it's less than 150.
You will also need a battery, a charge controller, and an inverter.
Remember that the wattage number is only in direct sunlight, with the sun perpendicular to the panel. If just one small part of the panel is in shade, you get no output.
As soon as the sun moves away from perpendicular, the power output starts to drop.
How Can The Electric Companies Afford To Put Solar Panels Everywhere, But Not On Our Houses?
It Seems To Me That We Are Just Letting The Power Companies Capitalize On A Power Source That Really Should Be More Accessable To Us, The Ones That Have Been Paying For Nuclear And Other Power Sources That We Can'T, By Law, Have Installed On Our Property.
Keep in mind the issues of scale:
Solar panels on a commercial scale cost something on the order of $7.25/watt to install, of which roughly half of that is for the panel itself (retail). This includes inverter technology but not storage. This works out to about $7,250 per KW installed.
A nuclear plant in today's dollars will run between $5,500 and $6,000 per KW installed.
A 5,000 watt solar system on your house will cost approximately $35,000 to install. Cheaper per watt than commercial as there is no supporting infrastructure to build.
The differences between actual costs and what is paid by the end-user are subsidies provided by state and local governments and utilities.
So, if you are in an unsubsidized area, you are perfectly free to install solar power on your property - if you can afford it.
Now, if full life-cycle costs are included (installation, maintenance, cost-of-operation, and final disposal when done) nuclear and solar are also very close in cost. The difference is that a 480MW nuclear plant may be fit on about 660 acres of ground including cooling towers, access roads, set-backs and so forth - and could be set on less than 100 acres if necessary (many are).
The same capacity solar plant (at 10 watts per square-foot, peak power) would cover 11,000 acres or so, *not* including infra-structure, access roads, set-backs and so forth.
Solar power is a feel-good solution that is pretty impractical on the face of it *UNLESS* there is no alternative solution. But, because it is being subsidized by various sources, is highly visible and has all sorts of warm-and-fuzzy but generally thoughtless advocates it is popular beyond its worth.
We are actually considering it _because_ of the subsidies. But at face-cost nohownoway.
Where Can I Find A Complete Diagram Of How A Solar Panel Works?
I Need A Diagram Which Includes The Storge Of Electricity During Night Time. I Need All The Things Needed To Install A Solar Panel. Ineed To See The Location Of The Batterier, Wirings, And Other Materials.
There's a fully illustrated guide in this book I bought at http://www.freepower4u.com
I just used that book to help me BUILD a solar power system (batteries, solar panels, inverter, disconnect, etc) for the grand total of $197.
I'm using it with some deep cycle batteries which charge during the day and can run my fridge all night... so I'm guessing it would run your air conditioner.
It's a great little guide which I highly recommend.
