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 utilize the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, washing clothes, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are significant, many homeowners discover that the convenience, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically reduce or perhaps eliminate your electrical expenses
Whether you're a property owner, service, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can make up a large part of your regular monthly costs. With a solar 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 consume, solar will reduce your energy costs and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.
#2 Make a great return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity bill savings, the average American property owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, residential electrical energy rates have gone up by approximately 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and protect against unpredictable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a business or homeowner with fluctuating capital, going solar also helps you better projection and handle your costs.
#4 Increase your home or business worth
Several research studies have discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher home values and sell more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, demand for properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial element of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price fluctuations in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A typical residential photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are necessary components of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that select to operate properly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of customer acquiring choices, developing goodwill and improving service outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Lots of homeowners opt to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This means that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The utility business are notorious for their changing and unreliable electricity rates. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and basic math, we can determine how much electrical power will be generated, and most notably, at what price, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired 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
How Many Solar Panels Would I Need To Power My Home?
Or How Many Watts? I Dont Use Much Electricity. I Have On A Couple Of Lights And A Computer, Sometimes The Tv. How Many Solar Panels Would I Need To Power Those Constantly Throughout The Day, And Maybe Charge Batteries For Night? The Air, Refrigerator And Hot Water Heater I Would Still Use Regular Electricity.
Solar panels produce DC electricity, not AC. So, they would have to charge a bank of batteries, then you'd need an inverter to convert DC to AC.
You need to find what your peak wattage is (consumption) and how long you want to run things for and work backwards from there.
Suffice to say, a roof-full of panels probably won't be enough.
How Many Solar Panels Do I Need To Power A Small House?
Im Only Powering Lights And Fans
Solar panels produce DC (12v, 24v, 48v, etc) voltage. You will need to invert the solar power to AC. The amount of panels is determined on the amount of Watt Hours of electrical load you will be using. If you want to run these loads after the sun goes gown then you will have to store your solar generated power into batteries.
I have a completely off grid home, 2000 watts solar, propane heat, H20, refrigerator, and generator. Total electrical system cost about $50,000. 1000 square foot home, facing do south.
Hope this is helpfull.
Charging Sla Battery With Solar Panel? Safe Voltage?
I Have A Very Small 10V Solar Panel (Which I Made By Connecting 4 Very Small 2.5V Solar Panels In Series) And I Want To Charge A 6V Sla Battery With It. Is 10V Too Much Voltage For It? I'Ve Read That The Maximum Is Around 7 Volts But My Solar Panel Doesn'T Really Put Out Many Milliamps. My Question Is, Even Though It Barely Puts Out Any Milliamps, Is 10 Volts Still Too Much For It?
Your battery will bring the voltage of your solar cells down to what they need. If you had more powerful solar cells you should have a voltage regulator in the system.
But good for you. you are playing with a very useful technology. Do it and learn.
Solar Panels And Distance From The Sun?
I Was Having A Discussion With A Friends About Solar Panels.
He Says That If There Is A Solar Panel (Sp1) On The Ground And A Solar Panel (Sp2) High In The Atmosphere (In The Stratosphere) The Difference In Power Output Between Sp1 And Sp2 Negligible.
I Said That There Would Be A Large Difference In Power Output Because Sp1 Has All Of The Atmosphere To Block The Suns Rays And Sp2 Has Very Little Atmosphere Because It Is Very High Up (In The Stratosphere) Therefore More Sun Can Get To The Panel And More Power Is Produced.
Who Is Correct?
Many Thanks In Advance, Please Leave Sources If Possible, For Validity.
There will be a difference (44%, see below) but not a large one. The atmosphere is transparent to the wavelengths used by the solar panel. But no clouds, and a lot more hours of sunlight.
Space-based solar power (SBSP) (or historically space solar power- SSP) is a system for the collection of solar power in space, for use on Earth. SBSP differs from the usual method of solar power collection in that the solar panels used to collect the energy would reside on a satellite in orbit, often referred to as a solar power satellite (SPS), rather than on Earth's surface. In space, collection of the Sun's energy is unaffected by the day/night cycle, weather, seasons, or the filtering effect of Earth's atmospheric gases.
The world Radiation Centre's 1985 standard extraterrestrial spectrum for solar irradiance is 1367 W/m2. The integrated total terrestrial solar irradiance is 950 W/m2. Therefore, extraterrestrial solar irradiance is 144% of the maximum terrestrial irradiance. A major interest in SBSP stems from the length of time the solar collection panels can be exposed to a consistently high amount of solar radiation. For most of the year, a satellite-based solar panel can collect power 24 hours per day, whereas a land-based station can collect for only 12 hours per day, yielding lower power collection rates around the sunrise and sunset hours.
The collection of solar energy in space for use on Earth introduces the new problem of transmitting energy from the collection point, in space, to the place where the energy would be used, on Earth's surface. Since wires extending from Earth's surface to an orbiting satellite would be impractical, many SBSP designs have proposed the use of microwave beams for wireless power transmission. The collecting satellite would convert solar energy into electrical energy, which would then be used to power a microwave emitter directed at a collector on the Earth's surface. Dynamic solar thermal power systems are also being investigated.
Some problems normally associated with terrestrial solar power collection would be eliminated by such a design, such as dependence on meteorological and weather conditions, and the panels being prone to corrosion. Other problems may take their place though, such as cumulative radiation damage or micrometeoroid impacts.
