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 property owner to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, cleaning clothing, enjoying TV, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, many property owners find that the benefit, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.
Leading Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably decrease and even remove your electric costs
Whether you're a house owner, business, or nonprofit, electricity costs can comprise a large portion of your month-to-month costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate complimentary 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 lower your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the finest ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity bill cost savings, the average American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the previous ten years, property electrical energy costs have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're a business or house owner with fluctuating money circulation, going solar likewise helps you better forecast and handle your expenses.
#4 Increase your home worth
Several studies have found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher property worths and offer more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, need for properties 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 a key element of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall 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 great method to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A normal residential solar panel system will remove three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are essential elements of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that decide to operate responsibly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of consumer acquiring decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no money down.
Lots of homeowners choose to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility companies are notorious for their varying and undependable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and basic mathematics, we can determine just how much electrical power will be generated, and most importantly, at what cost, for at least the next 20 years (fixed 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.
- 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
Which Renewable Energy Form Has The Least Amount Of Negative Impact On The Envioronment?
Solar Is Nice, But How Much Energy & Chemicals Are Used To Make The Solar Panels.
Geothermal Is Nice Too, Except Along With The Steam Comes The Other Nasty Byproducts That Come Up With The Steam, Depending Upon Where The Steam Is Coming From.
Wind Is Nice Too, But What About The Cost, Energy & Materials Used To Make A Single 50 Kilowatt Turbine.
Ocean-Thermal Is Nice Too, But Vulnerable To Storms & Needs To Be Degunked Often. (The U Of Hawaii Attempted Otech Many Years Ago To Test Its Viability & Pitfalls).
All The Alternate Energy Solutions Require Components That Are Not Necessarily Conscientiously Green Friendly.
Which One Has The Least Impact On The Environment?
Methane from Biomass.
The methane is made from decaying organic waste which is inherently renewable.
The by product is carbon dioxide, but the net carbon cycle is neutral as the carbon in 're-absorbed' into new plants which become the fuel the next time around. This makes it better than fossil fuels which release carbon that has been trapped under ground for millenia.
The technology is well developed and highly efficient as in natural gas turbines.
Solar Panel Manufacturing?
Im Interested In Starting A Solar Panel Manufacturing Company. Ive Researched On How To Make Them And It Doesnt Look Too Hard, And Is Definitely Something I Can Figure Out. I Would Be Starting From Nothing So My Question Is What Are The Chances Of Me Actually Selling A Lot Of Panels And The Business Actually Succeding?
No solar manufacturer is really making much money right now, so panels are going for cutthroat prices. You will have to answer the following for your prospective business:
1) How much time and money will you allocate to regulatory approvals, such as UL? Without these, the panels are generally illegal for installation in a grid-tied system.
2) If you decide to forego the approvals, you could still sell the panels, but they would be for off-grid and hobbyists, and worth less. You would have to compete with solar laminate from places like sunelec.com
3) Figure out how much labor and material cost would go into each panel. Would you locate in the US? It's hard to beat the big players in China, in this commodity market. It would be like having a small company to make laptops, and trying to beat HP, Dell,and Lenovo.

How Can You Charge A Car Battery With Solar Panel?
I Have A 10 Watt Solar Panel. I Want To Charge A Car Battery With It. What Other Equipment Or Peripherals I Would Need?
That panel is too small to charge a car battery. You won't get more than half an amp out of it.
How To Make Solar Panel Turn Off Led When Light Contact With Solar Panel?
I'Ve Recently Connected A Solar Panel To A Battery Wires Which Connects To An Led Wiring. I'M Trying To Figure Out A Way, Even Make A Motherboard, To Make The Led Turn Off In Light And Charge The Battery But Don'T Know How. Please Help Me.
I just did one. I used a phototransistor in a voltage divider circuit hooked up to the reset pin of a 555 timer. then ground the trigger pin.
I had set up the circuit to blink the led as an option but if you ground the trigger i will not blink. But when the voltage on the reset pin (4) goes under .7 volts the output is low. Set up the phototransistor in series with a 10k resistor and tie the reset pin to the phototransistor.
So when the resistance of the phototransistor goes low enough the voltage across it goes less than .7 volts and the 555 turns off.
