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 everyday life: running your air conditioner, cleaning clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, lots of residents find that the benefit, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly reduce or perhaps remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a homeowner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can comprise a big part of your monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your utility expenses and you'll still save a great deal of money.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the finest methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power costs cost savings, the typical American house owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical energy rates have gone up by an average of 3 percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and secure versus unforeseeable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a service or homeowner with changing cash circulation, going solar likewise helps you better projection and handle your expenditures.
#4 Boost your home or business worth
Several studies have discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher home values and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for properties geared up 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 crucial element of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate variations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market included tasks 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 development is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a great method to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A typical domestic photovoltaic panel system will remove three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are essential components of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding services that opt to operate responsibly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of customer acquiring decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Numerous property owners decide to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar provider for electricity-- 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 Investment
The energy companies are infamous for their fluctuating and undependable electrical energy rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can determine just how much electricity will be produced, and most importantly, at what cost, for at least the next Twenty 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
Solar Panels For Businesses Such As Target Or Fresh And Easy?
I Live In Southern California And For My Ap Environmental Science Class, We Have To Do A Class Project. Our Topic Is Trying To Have Our School/Local Businesses Buy Or Lease Solar Panels.
There Is One Target In Our City With An Extremely Large Roof Space And Ample Sunlight, (Knowing It Would Be Rather Difficult To Convince Them To Buy/Lease Solar Panels) Would They Be Willing To Think About It?
I'M Also Going To Go For Fresh And Easy, Since They'Re About Fresh Produce, Organic Produce, And Other Environmentally Beneficial Stuff.
Do You Know Of Any Pros And Cons Of Buying Or Leasing Solar Panels? Other Than The Cost?
They would certainly cut their mains electricity usage, but the pay back time may be quite long without any Government subsidy, or retailer feed in tariff. (What the electricity company pays for power put into the grid from the panels.) One of the cruise terminals in L.A. has the roof covered on panels, well over 500 of them, so there must be some benefit with them.
As the price of panels is slowly coming down, it will pay companies with big roof areas to put in solar panels
Survey: If You Could Not Install A Solar Panel On Your House Would You Buy Shares In A Solar Energy Co-Op?
In A Number Of Communities The Home Owner Associations Don'T Allow Solar Panels On Roofs Because They Think They Blight The Neighborhood. Other People Live In Apartments And Can'T Have Solar Panels.
In Addition Would Being Able To Use Government Tax Credits, Be An Additional Incentive To Invest In A Solar Co-Op?
If I was already committed to the idea of using solar to power my house then sure I would join a collective. I might even go that route anyway since that way you avoid doing the maintenance on the system yourself. That's worth $ to me to not have the hassle.
If you REALLY want them on your house get elected to the Board for your local community and change the CCR's so that solar panels are allowed. You just need to convince enough people it's a good idea. Democracy in action!
Tax credits for solar always make it more attractive, whether they be for the individual, the co-op or a major energy company.
I Bought 10 Solar Panels With 280W Output Each With Dc Voltage Of 36. I Am Not Connecting Batteries In The?
Installation. I Will Have Solar Panel/Inverter/House. Is It Better To Connect The Panels In Series Or Parallel?
Hey Kirk, Lare and Roderick are both correct here, there is not a simple "which way" answer to this question. Your inverter will have input voltage limits if you are using a grid tie inverter. If you are using a battery bank to run an inverter instead, then the charge controllers limits will dictate which way to wire up your panels. A typical grid tie inverter might have a range of incoming DC voltages from 140 to 200 for example. In this case, you would need the first five panels in series for a total voltage of 180, and the next five in series also, but the two pairs of 5 panels would be paralleled to each other.
I'm guessing you've not really studied this a great deal before you got the panels. Is your inverter a grid tie, stand alone or utility interactive? If you can't answer that question, I would highly suggest getting help on this, there are lots of places to fall down when you're installing a system like this, and at the very least, you might find your investement not working at all, or worse, damaging equipment or starting a fire. Try contacting the place you got the panels, they might be able to steer you to some help. Or look for solar panel installers in your area, they are getting easier to come by these days. Please take care with this, it isn't like buying a coffeemaker and plugging it in. Take care, Rudydoo
Rank Best Energy Sources?
Rank Best Energy Sources
I Hear It Costs A Lot Of Energy To Create Solar Panels Or Bio Fuel.
Crazy People Say Hydroelectric Dams Kill Fish.
So What Are The Best Sources Or Energy.
1 Hydro-Electric Dams.
Why would you word it as "crazy people" say? Do you own a dam ? Do you even know what a Salmon is?
Hydro-electric dams are very efficient, but take many years to build and take tremendous amounts of energy and concrete (which is very expensive anymore) to build. Also they silt up.
Geo-thermal has a high cost up front, but pays off in the long run, but only heats or cools your space to about 58 degrees.
Nuclear is very similar to hydro with initial start up cost but then you need to deal with the waste.
Not sure where you got your info about bio-fuels because that is something you can make in your own garage with scraps. You must have meant ethanol and you are correct in that, if we continue down that path we will be worse off.
Lastly solar panels need to be looked at like compact florescent bulbs, they cost more up front but pay you back over time. In Colorado on average spending about 9k for an on grid solar panel system gets you a net metering and a check cut back to you at the end of the year for about 300 dollars. Also other forms of solar energy such as wind and passive and hot water are very cheap and pay for themselves right away.
Why Aren'T Solar Panels Vat Free?
Solar Panels Are Very Expensive Reducing Them To Vat Free May Make A Difference For People Who Would Like To Install Them.
If by VAT you mean a Value Added Tax, they're taxed because they can be produced in your home country, although the supply that is available may be produced elsewhere, and thus, the VAT. It's an incentive to buy local, even when the local item may be 3x more expensive.
