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 daily life: running your a/c, washing clothes, seeing TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are substantial, many residents discover that the convenience, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly reduce and even remove your electric bills
Whether you're a house owner, service, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can comprise a large portion of your month-to-month expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll generate complimentary 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 decrease your utility bills and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power costs cost savings, the average American property owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical energy costs have actually gone up by approximately three percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unpredictable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're a service or property owner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and handle your expenses.
#4 Boost your home worth
Multiple studies have actually found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and offer quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for homes 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 part of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar market included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A normal domestic photovoltaic panel system will remove three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are necessary elements of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that opt to operate properly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of customer acquiring choices, producing goodwill and improving business results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Numerous homeowners decide to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This means that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility business are well-known for their varying and undependable electrical power rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can calculate just how much electricity will be generated, and most significantly, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of 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

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
Why Is Germany Saying That Green Energy Is Just &Quot;One Big Massive Moneypit&Quot;?
Germany Once Prided Itself On Being The “Photovoltaic World Champion”, Doling Out Generous Subsidies—Totaling More Than $130 Billion, According To Research From Germany’S Ruhr University—To Citizens To Invest In Solar Energy. But Now The German Government Is Vowing To Cut The Subsidies Sooner Than Planned And To Phase Out Support Over The Next Five Years. What Went Wrong?
Subsidizing Green Technology Is Affordable Only If It Is Done In Tiny, Tokenistic Amounts. Using The Government’S Generous Subsidies, Germans Installed 7.5 Gigawatts Of Photovoltaic Capacity Last Year, More Than Double What The Government Had Deemed “Acceptable.” It Is Estimated That This Increase Alone Will Lead To A $260 Hike In The Average Consumer’S Annual Power Bill.
According To Der Spiegel, Even Members Of Chancellor Angela Merkel’S Staff Are Now Describing The Policy As A Massive Money Pit. Philipp Rösler, Germany’S Minister Of Economics And Technology, Has Called The Spiraling Solar Subsidies A “Threat To The Economy.”
Germany’S Enthusiasm For Solar Power Is Understandable. We Could Satisfy All Of The World’S Energy Needs For An Entire Year If We Could Capture Just One Hour Of The Sun’S Energy. Even With The Inefficiency Of Current Pv Technology, We Could Meet The Entire Globe’S Energy Demand With Solar Panels By Covering 250,000 Square Kilometers (155,342 Square Miles), About 2.6 Percent Of The Sahara Desert.
Unfortunately, Germany—Like Most Of The World—Is Not As Sunny As The Sahara. And, While Sunlight Is Free, Panels And Installation Are Not. Solar Power Is At Least Four Times More Costly Than Energy Produced By Fossil Fuels. It Also Has The Distinct Disadvantage Of Not Working At Night, When Much Electricity Is Consumed.
In The Words Of The German Association Of Physicists, “Solar Energy Cannot Replace Any Additional Power Plants.” On Short, Overcast Winter Days, Germany’S 1.1 Million Solar-Power Systems Can Generate No Electricity At All. The Country Is Then Forced To Import Considerable Amounts Of Electricity From Nuclear Power Plants In France And The Czech Republic.
Indeed, Despite The Massive Investment, Solar Power Accounts For Only About 0.3 Percent Of Germany’S Total Energy. This Is One Of The Key Reasons Why Germans Now Pay The Second-Highest Price For Electricity In The Developed World (Exceeded Only By Denmark, Which Aims To Be The “World Wind-Energy Champion”). Germans Pay Three Times More Than Their American Counterparts.
The Same in Spain where, after intensive work and expenditures, they have found that for EACH "green job" they lost 2.2 normal jobs...

What Are The Best Solar Powered Led Lights For A 6 X 8 Greenhouse?
As The Question Asks, Does Anyone Have A Good Idea As To What Solar Powered Led Lights Could Work For A 6 X 8 Greenhouse To Act As A Grow Light, Without Breaking My Bank Account In The Process?
I Have Been Looking At Some Of The Many Solar Pathway Lights As An Idea For A Grow Light, Because I'D Think Any Led Light Would Help Grow My Vegetables.
I'Ve Also Looked At Actual Led Plant &Quot;Grow&Quot; Lights That Illuminate With Color, But I'M Not Sure Which One Is Best, Nor Do I Want To Spend Over $200... Preferably, Having A 6 X 8 Greenhouse, I'M Hoping To Stay Under $100, But We'Ll See What My Offerings Are.
I'Ve Looked At Led Rope Lights As Well.
My Plants Are In Basically Direct Sunlight, For Part Of The Day At Least. Being In A Tight Suburban Environment With Lots Of Tall Structures It Limits It, So These Lights Are Just To Make Up For Any Loss Of Light, And To Be Able To Be Operated At Night As Well.
If Solar Self-Powered Lights Are Just Not Too Powerful, What Would You Recommend For Basic Led Lights And A Decent, Basic, Solar Panel To Go Along With Them?
Preferably, Self-Powered Lights Would Be Ideal, But I'M Grateful For Any Advice.
Links To Some Actual Products Would Help, Or At Least Specific Names, As There Are So Many Varied Designs And Prices Out There.
There are some lights here http://ledwholesalers.com/store/index.ph... . However, for your budget, I think you'll only be able to get enough light for a few pots, not the entire greenhouse.
I'd suggest not trying to solar-power everything. Just wire grid electricity over to the greenhouse.
Is It Possible To Put Solar Panel On The Moon And Transfer Energy To Earth By Microwave? (=Space Based Power)?
In The Book &Quot;The Next 100 Years&Quot; By George Friedman, He Claims That By 2080 All Energy Problem Would Be Solved By The Space Based Power Generation. But I Thought That Even If You Can Transfer Energy In Air By Electromagnetic Beam, Originally Shown By Nicola Tesla, Evergy Losses Very Quickly With Square Of Distance. Or Am I Missing Something? Is It Really Possible? G Friedman Is A Rand Corp Analysist, So I Think He Is Serious.
First of all, this square of distance law is valid for omnidirectional radiation, like a light bulb or a star. Not for focused light like a laser beam.
Second: A solar panel on the moon would be bad, because you would have 2 weeks power, 2 weeks no power, because of its rotation. (The moon rotates once in about 4 weeks, as it travels around the earth.)
But it would make sense somewhere in space, where there is no shadow. It is possible and I remember having read about such plans.
I Have A Solar Heated Hot Water Heater, Is The Red Pump On The Front Supposed To Be Very Hot?
This Question For Anyone Who Has A Solar Heated Hot Water Heater (Especially Someone Who Works On Them). So Far We Have Noticed That The Water Is Very Very Inconcistant. Blazing Hot (160) One Day And Today For Example Was Just Luke Warm ~105 For Our Morning Shower. It Has An Electric Backup. We Ran The Dishwasher Last Night But That'S It!
I Noticed The Red Pump On The Front (The One That Sends The Water To The Pannels I Presume) Is Very Very Hot. Way To Hot To Touch For More Than A Second. Is This Normal? Any Other Ideas?
Yes, it can be very hot. Mine was on the hot sunny days. Remember, the pump is circulating the water through the solar panels and if they have a lot of sun, the water is hot. It will not heat water overnight. That is why you have the water heater backup. You're supposed to do your laundry and dish washing during the day when it is working at it's maximum, which will be between 12 and 4 pm. Evidently you water heater is set too low if you want a shower hotter than 105. Personally I think 105 is just right for a shower.
120 Watt Solar Panel To Home Ac?
Ok I Just Ordered A 120 Watt Solar Panel 12V. I Want A Lead That Will Run A Fan And Pump Straight From The Panel No Way Connected To Batteries. I Also Want A Line Leading To Charge Deep Cycle Batteries Which I Will Store Electricity For Later Use. I Understand That Solar Panels Need Charge Controller To The Battery And From Battery An Inverter. But Whats Required If I Want To Run The Fan And Pump Without Draining The Batteries As They Charge?
If the power of the fan and pump doesn't exceed the 120W power of the solar panel then you will only draw current from the solar panel.And yes you need a charge controller.No the charge controller only control the charge of the battery,it doesn't control the load on the battery!
