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 house owners to use the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c unit, washing clothing, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are substantial, numerous home owners discover that the convenience, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically reduce and even remove your electric expenses
Whether you're a house owner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can make up a big portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.
#2 Earn a great return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power costs savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the previous ten years, residential electricity prices have increased by an average of 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect against unforeseeable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're a business or property owner with rising and falling money flow, going solar also helps you much better forecast and manage your expenses.
#4 Increase your property worth
Numerous studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and sell more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, need for homes geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase 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 capability to generate electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost fluctuations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market included jobs at a rate nearly 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 tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will get rid of three to 4 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are necessary components of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that decide to operate responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of consumer purchasing choices, producing goodwill and enhancing service results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Many property owners pick to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
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 varying and undependable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can determine just how much electricity will be produced, and most significantly, at what rate, for at least the next 20 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
Is Solar Power Carbon Neutral? Why?
Yes it is. There's no carbon present in the solar radiation to begin with, and electrical equipment does not make it, so there is no carbon put into the atmosphere to make the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide.
There's no carbon in electricity per sè, either; that's why the hybrid car will emit no greenhouse gases while running solely on its electric battery. Where the carbon comes from is the power plants that make the electricity in the first place (and the one that made the hybrid car), if those power plants burn some sort of fuel to run the plant. Hydroelectric power plants, for example, that utilize flowing water to generate electricity, are also environmentally-friendly.
As would solar power plants be - whether or not you had solar panels on your house.
What Percentage Of Solar Panels & Windmills Built In The Us Are Built Using Illegals?
Months Ago When Obama Toured A Solar Panel Manufacturing Plant All Of The Workers Were Told To Stay Home That Day. The Vast Majority Were Hispanics.
Didn'T Obama Want A Bunch Of Illegals In His Green Energy Photo Op?
Almost none. Those kind of manufacturing jobs are high paying, skilled labor jobs, the kind that Americans in unions have. There's no need for unskilled undocumented workers.
Can you cite a source, and a factual one at that? Every photo I can find of Obama's solar plant photo ops show him with workers. If "all" the workers stayed home, who is that he's with?
How Do You Know If A Solar Panel Is Dc Or Ac?
My Solar Panel Shows A Dc Charge And An Ac Charge I Was Reading The Nec Code Book And It Says That There Are Ac And Dc Solar Panels So I Was Wondering How To Tell, Also How Would You Find The Wattage Of Something Using A Multimeter?
The only way a solar panel can output AC is if its natural DC is put through an on-board inverter (oscillator) that will turn the DC into AC.
Wattage only makes sense with a load connected to the panel. It is the product of the voltage generated by the panel and the current drawn by its load. When you have a load on there put the leads of the multimeter across the voltage terminals while it is set to Voltmeter function. Put the leads of the multimeter in series with the load while it is set to Ammeter function. Some of the more expensive panels have meters built in to answer the power question constantly.
How Much Oil Is Used To Manufacture Batteries And Solar Panels?
Are Battery Casings Made From Oil, And Are Solar Panels Made From Some Percentage Of Oil? And Fan Blades For Wind Turbines?
50 years ago, casings for automotive batteries were made from asphalt, a waste byproduct of crude oil refining. modern automotive casings are made of plastic. these and the other plastics are made from oil, but not necessarily crude oil (fossil fuel). plastics can also be made from plant oil with soya being the most common.
Why Are There So Few Energy Efficient Houses?
There Is Something Really Wrong With How Houses Are Built Today, Especially In Colder Climates. This Is Not A Technological Challenge Since We Can Easily Build Energy Efficient Houses And Reinvent The Wheel So To Speak. Instead It Is Ignorance. It Would Make A Lot More Sense To Have Houses With Big South Facing Windows, That Are Extremely Well Insulated And Partly Built Into The Ground Since The Ground Will Always Be Warmer Throughout The Winter, And Cooler In Summer. I Am Astounded That Houses Look Almost The Same As They Did 100 Years Ago. In Fact A Lot Of Houses Are Built To Even Poorer Standards Than They Were Back Then. If Houses Were Simply Built Right My Bet Is You Could Probably Reduce Energy Bills By 3/4Ths. Ie Big Windows, Skylights Partly Sunken Into The Ground And Solar Panels.
It's a matter of choice, do you spend 30% more for a house that you can't afford without a mortgage that you barely qualify for? Or do you accept a smaller home with fewer luxuries in a less desirable neighborhood just so that you can have an efficient home. It's the old pay now or pay later problem and everyone chooses to pay later even though it may be a greater cost.
