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 use the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, washing clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, many property owners discover that the benefit, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically lower or even remove your electric costs
Whether you're a homeowner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can make up a big part of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your energy bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.
#2 Earn a great return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity expense savings, the average American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical power rates have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and secure against unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a company or homeowner with ever-changing money circulation, going solar also assists you better projection and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home value
Numerous research studies have discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial 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 an essential element of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price variations in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included jobs at a rate nearly 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. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to reduce 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 each year.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are very important components of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that opt to run responsibly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of consumer getting choices, producing goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Numerous house owners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This means that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The energy business are notorious for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can compute what does it cost? electrical energy will be produced, and most notably, at what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired 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
If Your Domestic Pitched Roof Is Overloaded Due To Solar Panels -What Are Signs Of This?
Presumably If The Roof Is Overloaded With Solar Panels And Needs Strenthening Then Before The Snow Arrives Or The High Winds Come There Will Be Some Signs Of This To Look Out For? What Are They In A Domestic Pitched Roof With A Frames With Like A W Support In Them! And Also Ehat Is The Most Likley Result Of A Failure. Will One A Frame Break Will The Whole Roof Fall In Etc.
Whoever installed the panels should have looked into this before installing.
Photovoltaic panels are light, perhaps 3 lbs. per square foot, which is less than the roofing material under them. So if the roof is sagging or the underlying rafters are cracking or something, then the roof was about to go, anyway.
If you're talking about a solar water heater of the type with a large tank on the roof, that's a different matter. The installer should have paid special attention to the roof strength for this sort of thing. At least in my area, a building inspection would have been required.
I Have 12V Batt(26Ah),10Amp Scc(Mppt-Tracer) With Mt-5 Meter,70W Solar Panel 24V?
My Mt-5 Meter Reading Of My Battery Is 100% When It'S Full...And The Mppt Scc (Tracer) Led Indicator Is Blinking Green Means It'S Full.... But During Sunset Around 5:00 Pm The Percentage Of My Battery Drops To 66% And At Around 5:30 Pm It Drops To 57%(Solid Green Led Indicator Of Scc) Without Any Load.... What'S Wrong With My System???? :(
you're charging a 12v battery with a 24v solar panel and you likely have your charge controller set to 24v too(hopefully anyway), that's your problem.......you overcharged and broke the battery. only use identical voltages when working with any electricity. the reading you're getting is from the solar panels and the percentage drop is from lowering light levels and any remaining power storage the broken battery is capable of. to fix it, you just need to get 2 12v batteries and hook them up in series(positive to negative) to make a 24v battery bank able to handle your solar panel's voltage output and hook it up to your system like a big battery, that's about it.
How Do I Solar Power My Camper Site?
I Have Property In A Very Rural Area With No Utilities Close By And Would Like To Know How Many Solar Panels,Batteries, Charge Controler, Anf Power Inverter, Would Be Needed To Make A Stand Alone Power System That Would Run My Entire Camper?
We run a full-size refrigerator, lighting for 500 sq. ft, an entertainment center, a microwave, 2 computers, and a phone signal booster amplifier. We have 800 watts of solar panels, a 60 amp charge controller, 10 deep discharge batteries, and a 2.5 kW inverter. A backup generator runs the table saw- which draws too much power for the inverter- and a 75-amp charger if it's been cloudy for 2 days straight. System has been operating for 3 years, no problems. Will be upgrading to 16 batteries and 1.2 kW of panels this fall so that we can run a freezer and go 4 days without sun before using the generator.
Can I Use Solar With Inverter In Day Time Without Using Battries?
That is called a grid-tied inverter. It converts the DC power from the panels to AC and puts it into the electric panel in your house. You cannot use it standalone without the electric company connected as well. And if the power goes out on the grid, your inverter will turn off as well, even during a sunny day.
What Type Of Electrical Wires Are Used To Install A Solar Panel On The Roof?
I Have A Module Panel Which Is Suppose To Transfer Dc To Ac Electric. Is The Wires Soldered On The Back Of The Panel Or Any Metal On The Sides? What Colors Are The Wires?
What model panel? I seriously doubt that the Panel has a built in inverter. Most inverters are installed in the basement near the main electrical panel.
DC goes to the inverter from the panels.
For Outdoor electrical installation most local electrical codes require conduit (pipe).
Check with your local electrical inspector or ask a local contractor
