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 home owners to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothing, watching TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, lots of home owners find that the benefit, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably minimize and even remove your electric costs
Whether you're a house owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can comprise a large portion of your monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your utility bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power expense savings, the typical American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, property electricity rates have gone up by approximately 3 percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect against unforeseeable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're a service or homeowner with fluctuating cash flow, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and manage your costs.
#4 Boost your property worth
Numerous research studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater home values and offer more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties equipped with solar 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 attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost changes in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent method 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 normal property solar panel system will remove three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are very important elements of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that opt to run responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of customer purchasing choices, producing goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Numerous property owners pick to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
As of 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 notorious for their changing and unreliable electricity prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can determine just how much electrical energy will be produced, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

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 I Get A Mirror And Point It At A Solar Panel, Will It Generate More Electricity?
Sort of. If you have the solar panel in the sun, and use a mirror to reflect more sun onto the panel, it will generally put out more power.
This idea has been around for decades, but it's hard to make it practical. The main drawbacks as I remember them are
1) Heat is a problem. The solar cells have to get rid of the heat, or they will go bad. They will also not be as efficient at high temperatures.
2) When the sun moves, the spot of light from the mirror moves. So a mirror-type system usually needs a motor to make the system track the sun across the sky.
3) Panels are so cheap now, it's simpler, cheaper, and more reliable just to have more panels, than to try to do a mirror arrangement.
How Do We Stop Global Warming?
I'M A Skeptic And It Seems To Me When Ever I Hear A Method Of Stopping Global Warming It Usually Ends With Sign Here And I'Ll Need Your Credit Card Details. What Do You Get With That Purchase Is Something Very Close To Useless And Very Inefficiant, But Hey It Claims To Help Global Warming. Hybrid Cars Oh Yes I'D Love To Buy A 50 Thousand Dollar Sedan I Could Of Easily Gotten For Half That. Solar Panels Ohh Yes I'D Love To Save 50 Cents Of My Next Electricity Bill At The Cost Of 2-5 Grand Up Front! Don'T Worry It Pays Itself Off In......*Cough*60-100 Years
Now Some Of These Points Are A Littlebit Exagerated But Proves The Point That Some Methods Of Stopping Global Warming Seems To Be A Bit Suspicious!
Why stop it. If global warming ends, we all die.
there is no controlling the climate. Heck, we can not even control daily weather. As far as buying "Green" products, I do when it makes financial sense. For example, I bought a low water use washer because in about 4 years it should pay for itself. As for the new light bulbs at 4 times the price, hell no. I would buy a hybrid IF they had a style I liked and it was not $4,000 to 5,000 more than a regular one.
Let's do the math on this one. Average person (me) drive 12,000 miles per year. My current car gets about 20 MPG city/highway. The Camry Hybrid (most similar to my car) get around 34 MPG highway/city. So for my car, I will buy about 600 gallons of gas vs 353 for the Camry. At $4.00 per gallon, the Camry saves me about $988 dollars per year. This is pretty good since I tend to keep my car about 5 years. So in that 5 years I save a total of $4,940. Which means if I spent an extra $5,000 for it, it would never pay for itself. However, it looks like the Camry hybrid is about $4,000 more so it may pay to get it. BUT, we can not forget about the time value of money. Being that I spend an extra $4,000 today, I do not have this money available to invest. If I take that $4,000 and earn only 4% interest over 5 years, I get $800 in interest. Also, we would need to look at the actual loan value on the car since you would be paying interest on the additional $4,000. Over 60 months we would pay an additional $740 dollars just in interest on the car loan (60 months, $4,000, 6.94%, pmts = 79.09, times 60 months = $4,745 minus $4,000 for car = $745).
In conclusion, this car will never pay for itself in 5 years given the above scenario. When the price comes down, or gas goes up (which it is) the case may change. But for me, it still goes to teh crappy styling of the hybrids.
How Does Taxes Work On Solar Panels?
Like You Have Sales Tax When You Buy It. But Once You Own It And Use It Make Power Without Being On The Power Grid. How Does Taxes Work On It? Do You Have To Report To The Irs How Many Kwh'S It Made Or Something?
Many states don't charge sales tax on solar equipment for your own house. If yours does, some web based companies don't charge you taxes unless they have an office in your state.
If you are off-grid, it's nobody's business how much power you make, there is no tax on generating your own power.
Many states have a law that says you cannot have your property taxes go up (at least for 10 years in some states) if your property value goes up due to adding solar.
So, the answer really depends on what state you live in, and who you buy it from.
Having Solar Panels At Home, Is There Anybody Who Can Help Me With Energy Laws In Florida?
I'M Moving To Florida Next Week, And I Have Read On Internet, Some Electricity Companies There Can Detect When Energy Is Being Used Or Not, We Are A Couple And Know How To Operate Electricity But We Do Not Know Too Much About Laws In Florida , Could Anybody Help Us , Please...
I'm not sure what information you are looking for. DSIRE has a database of all of the rebates, incentives, and regulations around renewable energy, maybe what you are looking for can be found here, http://www.dsireusa.org/incentives/index...
If you are installing solar on your house, and tying it to the electric grid, you must sign a Net metering and interconnection agreement with the electric company. This allows you to sell any extra power you generate during the day back to the electric company. You would arrange that with the electric company itself.
2 Questions On Solar Panels?
How Much Energy Does 1 Solar Panel Produce,
And How Long Can Solar Panels Go Without Maintenance.
Solar panels are available in a wide variety of power ratings. Energy is the sum of power over time, so how much energy a panel produces depends on the intensity of the light hitting it and how long it's applied.
I understand that current single-crystal silicon PV panels are warranted to produce ~85% of their rated output for 25 years. Most will do better, and will produce useful output for perhaps 50 years or more.
