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 utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, washing clothing, enjoying TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, many home owners discover that the benefit, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly lower or perhaps remove your electric expenses
Whether you're a property owner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can comprise a big portion of your regular monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your utility costs and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.
#2 Make a great return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy expense savings, the typical American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electricity costs have increased by approximately 3 percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and secure versus unpredictable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a service or homeowner with fluctuating money flow, going solar also helps you much better forecast and manage your expenses.
#4 Boost your house value
Several research studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key element of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy
According to 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 growth is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A typical domestic solar panel system will eliminate three to 4 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 duty are very important elements of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that pick to operate responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of consumer getting choices, creating goodwill and enhancing service results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Numerous property owners pick to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The energy business are notorious for their changing and undependable electrical power prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can determine how much electrical power will be created, and most importantly, at what cost, for at least the next Twenty 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
Why Isn'T The Federal Government Willing To Subsidize Solar Energy Panels For Homes?
Some States Like Tx And Nj Will Subsidize Solar Energy 40% Worth.
But The Technology To Date Has Been Quite Costly In Spite Of These States' Subsidizing The Cost. However, Solar Energy Is Starting To Turn The Corner Cost-Effectively In The Past Year Or Two.
Why Is There No Serious Encouragement From The Federal Gov'T To Encourage Homeowners To Install Solar Energy Panels By Offerering Subsidies Or Rebates For Installing It?
Would This Be A Good Idea?
great idea...but the time hasent come yet. I came accross a new, proven and tested home made wind power system and solar power system which eliminates our electricity bills. It was written by a Renewable energy enthusiasts Michael Harvey the diy called Earth4energy. You can get your copy to save energy and help environment while eliminating your power bills.

Charging Li-On Batteries With Solar Panel?
With Nicads And Nimh Batteries, You Can Leave Them Charging Indefinitely As Long As The Charge Current Is Limited To No More Than C/10. Would This Same Rule Apply To Li-Ons? What If You Were To Limit The Li-On Charging Current To C/20 Just To Be On The Safe Side?
Right Now, I Use A Lm317t Regulator To Limit The Charge Current And It Works Just Fine. I Was Thinking Of Getting Higher Capacity Li-On Batteries And Using Another Regulator To Limit It'S Current. But I Don'T Kow Is Setting The Current To C/20 Or More Would Possibly Lead To Fire Or Explosion If I Just Leave Them Charging All Day.
Thanks For Your Help!
"What happens if a battery is inadvertently overcharged? lithium-ion is designed to operate safely within their normal operating voltage but become unstable if charged to higher voltages. When charging above 4.30V, the cell causes plating of metallic lithium on the anode; the cathode material becomes an oxidizing agent, loses stability and releases oxygen. Overcharging causes the cell to heat up. If left unattended, the cell could vent with flame."
According to this site, you would design a charging circuit that , as the full charge is reached, reduces the charging current & measures the cell voltage. The charging circuit would be designed to shut off when the full voltage is reached.
In the alternative, you could also set a timer, to prevent over-charge.
Are There Solar Panel That Work Without The Sun?
There cannot be a solar panel which works without sun light. But solar panels can work without sunlight. For example you would have seen the battery less calculators which work on solar power. they work in the night too with enough light coming from the bulbs in the room. So the answer to your question in yes. But for generating power we have to have a source which is free and we cannot put the panel in lighted area, which will make is not economical since the nett power obtained will be negative.
How Much Is The Average Solar Panel?
Im Making An Energy Efficiant House For Science Class And I Need To Price The House. Im Putting Solar Pannels On The Roof And Would U Please Tell Me How Much They Are Per Like 2 Sq. Feet Of A Pannel?
You are way out of your depth if your report for science class is supposed to be knowledgable.
First of all, Solar panels alone will NOT be enough to charge the battery bank, which you don't even mention in your quesiton.
Secondly, the only way to have a usable 12 VDC system is to use a wind generator to keep the batteries charged to capacity and, as a plus, they will work at night.
A 65 Watt ARCO Solar Panel is about $300 and you need to figure your power by the Wattage Rading for the particular panels .
You also need to add in the cost of a 12VDC to 110VAC invertor, monitoring panels etc.... AND... just how big is the ROOF of the house you are planning to use.?
This is an area of involved study and it's a bit more than what you are imagining for your high school science class report.
People Who Rent Solar Panels, What Do You Think Of Them And Was Your Rep Really Flaky Or Was That Just Mine?
Do You Save Money Renting Solar Panels? Even In California With Our Inflated Electric Rates? Had Any Roof Problems? How Is Maintenance?
They are eco friendly but that's about it for me, as for saving money not so much they ended up being about the same cost for me as before I had them. they provide all maintenance for me free of charge although mine are only a few years old and have not broken yet so I haven't tested service on that "yet" only know what or how its supposed to be. and yes my sales rep was loopy too but the installers etc after that were normal. mine also put power back into the grid and turn my meter backwards when not using all the power they put out. keep in mind though im in AZ so theres always sun pretty much lol.
