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 a/c, washing clothing, viewing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing 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 considerable, many homeowners find that the convenience, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically decrease or even remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a homeowner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can comprise a large part of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your energy costs and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.
#2 Make an excellent return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power expense savings, the average American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical power costs have actually gone up by approximately three percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and protect against unforeseeable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're an organisation or property owner with rising and falling cash flow, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and handle your costs.
#4 Increase your house value
Several studies have discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, need for properties geared up 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 a crucial part of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Create 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 general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a great method to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A typical residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are necessary elements of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding services that opt to run responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of customer acquiring choices, producing goodwill and enhancing company results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Lots of property owners pick to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The energy companies are well-known for their varying and unreliable electricity prices. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can compute what does it cost? electricity will be created, and most notably, at what rate, 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
Can Someone Please Explain Solar Energy To Me?
How Its Obtained, How It Could Be Used And In Which We Use It And Why Its Important, And Why We Cant Use It?
10 Points ;)
There are 2 normal ways... you either get the sun to heat some panels that have water pipes in them and this means that the sun heats the pipes, the pipes heat the water and when you circulate the water through your hot water tank, the water in you house gets warmer.
OOr you have a panel with cells which convert the sun's energy into electricity
Why is it important - because if you use solar energy you use less of other forms and hence we pollute less and the global warming problem gets less. If just you do it, it is negligible, if we all do it, it could make a huge difference.
Why can't we use it - we can. the correct question, I would suggest, is why don't we use it... and the answer is the upfront cost. It is expensive and we all care about our own short term cash problems, without thinking of long term game for mankind ie we are mean
Can A Solar Panel Charge A Car Battery?
Hey, I Just Got A 15 Watt Solar Panel From My Brother And I Don'T Know How It It Stores Energy So I Was Wondering If I Could Hook It Up To An Old Car Battery And Charge It So I Can Have Free Car Battery'S, Does Anyone Have Any Info As To How I Could Do This? Thanks!
What is the voltage of the solar panel? Car batteries require 12 volts. Solar panels vary from 1.2 to 120 volts. There are solar battery chargers available that can be used to keep a battery charged.
How Solar Energy Is Used And What Make'S It Work ?
Three ways pop to mind:
Solar heating. Either use black tubes or mirrors or a combination to heat up water (solar heating panel) or food (solar oven).
Concentrating solar power: lots of mirrors focus the Sun's light on a single point which can get really hot and boil water or heat a liquid salt. This can be used to make steam to turn a turbine and make electricity.
Solar photovoltaics: these are a bit more complex.
Traditional ones use 2 blocks of silicon. Silicon has 4 outer electrons so it makes a crystal lattice with four bonds to each atom. If you put a small number of atoms with 3 outer electrons in one block and some with 5 electrons in another block, you end up with odd electrons or 'holes' (absence of electrons) in the bonds.
The 5-electron block has a spare electron which, at room temperature has enough thermal energy to escape, leaving 4 electrons to bond with the silicon.
The 3-electron block is missing an electron. If you bring your two blocks together, the spare electrons from the first block will eventually find one of these 'holes' and fill them, so now they have 4 electrons to bond with too.
You've transferred electrons from one block to the other: one has lost charge, one has gained it - you've created an electric field/potential difference (a voltage).
When light hits the material, it is absorbed by lower energy level electrons, which use this energy to jump up an energy band into what's called the conduction band. Normally they'd move about randomly thanks to thermal energy so there'd be no net current (in random motion half might move left, but the other half would move right and they'd cancel out). But you've set up an electric field (the bit I explained above) which makes the electrons move in one direction. This is an electric current - you've converted light to electricity!
To fully understand this you need a decent grasp of quantum physics - look up the 'nearly free electron model' if you think you can handle it!
Has Anyone Used A Solar Heating Panel System With An Intex Pool And Filter? Do They Work?
Pool Store Personnel Say The Solar Panel Systems Won'T Work Because The Intex Pool Filters Won'T Push Enough Water Thru The System.
The pool store guy is right. Those intex pumps are junk. Look for a used 1Hp pump or buy one from Harbor Freight.
You can unplug the Intex pump and use the new pump to push the water through the Intex filter. That is how I did mine. I have to clean the filter more often because the increased water flow.
Someday I will just buy a sand filter and have a really clean pool.
Where Can I Get A Small Solar Panel To Power An Outdoor Water Pump?
I Have A Fountain System That Has A Small Electric Pump. Its Made To Be Close To A House But I Want It Across The Driveway And I Dont Want To Run Electrical Over There.
Is There A Small Solar Panel That I Can Get Fairly Inexpensive To Mount On A Nearby Tree And Be Able To Plug The Pump Into It?
You will need more than a small solar panel to run a pump continuously, unless you don't mind that the pump only comes on during the day while the sun is out.
1st you need to know what the power demands are of the pump in question. Not only do you need to know the rate of the power draw from the pump, but you will also have to calculate how much power the pump will draw from your solar system every day. You will have to factor in that the sun doesn't shine brightly every day, & of course there's also night, so you will need a storage battery, & charging system to go along with your solar panel.
Now most pumps like the one you described are 120vac. Most solar panels, the batteries, & the chargers are 12vdc.
In order to get 120vac you will need an inverter. Once again, you will have to make sure that the inverter you get can handle the demands of the pump.
A solar system that actually works for you takes some carefull planning, & it's not something that you can just hang from a tree.
None of what I just descibed will be inexpensive by my definition, so if it were me, I'd dig a trench across the driveway, & install some direct bury cable on a GFCI circuit out of my main power panel & save a bundle.
