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 daily life: running your air conditioner, cleaning clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are substantial, numerous residents find that the convenience, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically lower or even eliminate your electric costs
Whether you're a property owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can comprise a large part of your regular monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll create free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power expense cost 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 Protect versus rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, property electrical power rates have gone up by an average of three percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and protect versus unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a service or house owner with changing capital, going solar likewise helps you better projection and handle your costs.
#4 Boost your property worth
Several research studies have found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, need for residential or commercial 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 key component of attaining energy self-reliance 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 Create jobs and assist your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar market included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent method to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A common property solar panel system will get rid of three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are essential parts of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that opt to operate properly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of customer purchasing decisions, developing goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Many house owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The utility companies are well-known for their changing and unreliable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward trend.
With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can compute what does it cost? electrical power will be created, and most notably, at exactly 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

What Is The Difference Between Photovoltaic Panels And Solar Panels?
Solar panels collect energy from the sun and then provide it to a system that typically concentrates it.
Solar energy comes to us in the form of heat and light. Photovoltaic panels take the light energy from the sun and convert it to electricity. Although the maximum efficiency is around 42% in the lab most commercial models you will see are from 8 to 22% efficient. Adding collectors together concentrates this energy into usable amounts.
Solar thermal panels are from 60 to 80% efficient. They come in many different types and collect the heat energy from the sun. That heat may then be stored in some form of thermal mass where it becomes concentrated sufficiently to be used. Solar thermal panels can be used to heat a medium. This can be a phase change material, air, or water. Solar thermal air panels are cheap to make and offer a quick pay back period. Solar thermal panels for some heating and hot water systems circulate water. Vacuum tube collectors are solar thermal "panels" that may heat water directly or a phase change materials. They can operate better in cloudy and colder weather with more efficiency. Air and water panels are often called "flat panels" as a way to contrast them with vacuum tube collectors.
Solar thermal panels often lead to some form of energy storage called thermal mass (water tanks, phase change materials, masonry walls and rocks.) Photovoltaic panels make electricity that is stored in batteries, used or sent to the general grid.
Panels are only one way to collect solar thermal energy. Other types of "collectors" are used commercially and are often called simply solar "concentrators." Some are called parabolic trough collectors and parabolic dish collectors.
Ive Been Thinking About Getting Solar Panels For My Home. Is It A Good Idea I Want To Hear From You Guys Who?
Have Them On Your Home. My House Is About 1700 Square Feet. About How Much Would It Coast Me To Go Completely Solar? I Have Ac, Water Heater, Couple Of Televisions,Refrigerator And All That Good Stuff.
We looked into that about 6 yrs ago when we built our home. The cost was astronomical. If I recall, something in the order of $90,000 for our 2200 sq ft ranch to go 80% off-the-grid.
I like the idea of 'going green', but "green" often costs double, or even triple. You won't be "saving money" for at least 30+ years, and that's only if the costs of the panels remains stable. I would hope they would have declined by now, but they haven't moved much in the last 10 years.
I read a report in Scientific American about a year or so ago that suggested the cost to produce panels now is less then $500 per panel. So why the 1000+% markup? Answer: Because it's "green".
