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 homeowner to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothing, watching TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, numerous residents find that the convenience, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably decrease or even remove your electrical bills
Whether you're a property owner, company, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can make up a big part of your month-to-month expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your energy costs and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power costs cost savings, the average American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical power rates have gone up by approximately 3 percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unpredictable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a service or house owner with fluctuating cash flow, going solar also helps you much better projection and handle your costs.
#4 Boost your home or business value
Several research studies have discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater property worths and offer more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price variations 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 total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A typical residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are very important parts of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding organisations that decide to run responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of customer getting choices, producing goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Lots of house owners choose to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility business are notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electrical energy prices. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can compute how much electrical energy will be generated, and most notably, at exactly what cost, 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
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 Do Solar Powered Garden Lamps Work?
We Have Just Bought A Pair Of Solar Garden Lamps ( Yesterday) And Have Had Them Outside All Day. It Hasn'T Been Sunny But Just Cloudy. The Lights Haven'T Come On.
Just Noticed That They Have On/Off Switches. Are The Switches Just So That The Lights Work Off The Battery ? For The Solar Power To Charge The Lights Do I Need To Have Them On &Quot;Off&Quot; ?
Or Will Having It Set To Off Mean That The Solar Power Won'T Work. Or Do The Lamps Just Need A Few Days Of Sunlight.
So I Guess My Question Is, Do I Leave The Switch Set At On Or Off. The Lights Are Working Now That I Have Turned The Switch To On. But Is This Just The Battery And Not The Solar Power ?
The little solar panel charges the battery during daylight, the brighter the sunlight and the longer the day the longer the light stays on at night. The on/off switch keeps the light off but the battery still charges. It's usually recommended that when first placing the lights in use you keep the switch to off to allow a full charge initially.
Why Do Solar Panels Burn Out?
What Makes Them Stop Working After A While?
You can search on "solar panel failure mechanisms" for scholarly works.
Amorphous silicon thin-film panels go through an annealing, and power drops off after a couple years. This includes most of those flexible rubber mat type panels. That's why those are not used on serious installations.
Serious panels intended for rooftop service generally come with a 25-year warranty, suggesting that the technology is more reliable than your washer, dryer, TV, computer, dishwasher, or water heater. One brand of panel had trouble about 10 years ago, but the manufacturer replaced all that were turned in, even paying shipping both ways. It was a problem with that particular model, not the technology.
Our polysilicon panels have been on the roof for 3 years, now, and I've seen no sign of wear, yet, either electrically or mechanically.
Diy Single Solar Panels With Outlets?
I Wanna Start Going Green, You Know Like Solar Panels, Wind Turbines, Etc. But Where I Live The Companies That Install The Free Solar Panels In Exchange For The Subsidiaries Aren'T Available. To Start Off I Was Just Looking For A Single Panel I Could Drill Into My Roof And Wire It To An Outlet Just For Small Thinks Like Charging My Phone And A Fan Maybe. If Anybody Can Understand My Crazy Idea Please Answer With Links To Where I Can Find These Things. Thanks!
That's not possible, unfortunately. Solar panels produce DC current, while most devices run on AC. Additionally, the voltage and wattage being output depends heavily on amount of sunlight and temperature, making it very ill-advised to attach sensitive electronic devices directly to a solar panel.
At the very least you would need to buy a solar panel and a Micro inverter, which would turn it into AC current, which should then be connected to your grid (don't try that yourself.)
Your other option would be to hook up a few solar panels to a battery bank to collect the energy before using it. Then you would need a small battery inverter to make the power usable by AC applications. Even then it's unlikely that your inverter's output power would be usable by your devices.
If you learn some more about solar energy and want to look at equipment prices, you can find all of these things at www.edisonsolarsales.com/store/ for cheap.
How To Make Electricity From The Sun Without Using Solar Panels?
Solar Panels Are Costly.Do You Know Any Inexpensive Way?
So That I Can Make One Of My Own.
Solar things are always costly... You can use concave mirrors and concentrate the heat and heat what and then steam ll be formed and then steam directed to turbines, there you go generating electricity with out solar panels...
If Solar Panels Were Put On Every Rooftop Could That Power The World?
And If So What Are The Obstacles Preventing It (Ie Expnse). I Suppose It Would Be Without A Grid A Have Batteries?
Your question makes little sense > I suppose it would be without a grid a have batteries< Huh?
You can try to put solar on every roof, but in many cases, it is a waste of money.
If your roof does not have a south facing view (for those of us in the northern hemisphere)...
If your region is especially cloudy or rainy (some coastal areas, Seattle, etc)
If your roof is shaded by building or trees, it is a problem...
If your average temperature deviates a lot from 68F (higher or lower, the output goes down)
The problem is not NEARLY as simplistic as you and people here tend to think. All of these factors (and more that I have not even mentioned) effect the viability of doing this and the rate of return.
