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 use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioner, washing clothes, seeing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, many property owners find that the convenience, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly reduce or even eliminate your electric expenses
Whether you're a homeowner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can make up a large portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't 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 Make an excellent return on your investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power costs savings, the typical American house owner settles their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical energy prices have increased by an average of three percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure against unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a business or homeowner with fluctuating money circulation, going solar also helps you much better forecast and manage your expenditures.
#4 Boost your home value
Several studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher property worths and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for homes 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 an essential part of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price variations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar market included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is an excellent method to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A normal property photovoltaic panel system will get rid of 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 corporate social duty are very important components of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that select to operate properly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of customer purchasing decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing organisation results.
#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.
Many house owners choose to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
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 utility companies are well-known for their fluctuating and undependable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can compute just how much electrical energy will be created, and most significantly, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired 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.

So I'M Becoming More Interested In Being Self Sufficient And Environmentally Friendly. I Would Like To Build A Dream Home Out Of Straw Bales And Mud On A Farm In The Country With Solar Panels And A Recycling Water System. Then I Started Wondering If Buying An Existing House Then Using Recycled Building Materials For Refurbishing So The House Can Be More Environmentally Friendly. So, Which Is Better At Achieving My Goal, Building Or Buying?
If you like building a green house, there are very good ebooks on solar panels http://ecovivencias.blogspot.com/2010/05...
Which Is The Best Way To Arrange 3W Solar Panels? (Series Or Parallel)?
What Are The Advantages And Disadvantages Of Using Such Arrangements?
There is no disadvantage, no advantage. Which way you connect them is dependent on the operating voltage required for efficient operation of whatever you connect to them.
No matter which connection you use, the product of output voltage and current will still be the same (the power output).
Need A Relay Switch For Solar Panel...........
Suggest Me A Good Relay Switch....?
I Have Solar Panel, Charge Controller And Battery. I'M Using Diode For Blocking Reverse Current. I Believe Diodes Can Cause Power Loss. So I'M Thinking Of Relay Switch. It Should Turn On If There Is A Power Coming From Solar Panel. It Should Turn Off If There Is No Power Coming From Solar Panel...
Which Type Of Relay Is Needed?
BUY 12V COIL VOLTAGE TYPE RELAY IF YOUR SOLAR PANEL HAS 12V OUTPUT, THE CONTACT RATE FOR SMALL RELAY HAS 1A TILL 50A , THAT YOU NEED TO FIND OUT WHAT IS THE MAXIMUM CHARGING CURRENT THROUGH IT, SUPPOSE ITS IS 10A, THEN CHOOSE 20A TYPE TO MAKE THE RELAY LASTS LONG LIFE. ONE SET OF CONTACTS IS GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOUR WORK.
I Am Asking About The Solar Panels?
I Check The Diodes In The Backside Of Solar Panels It Reads Out To Be 0.433 Each Give Me The Same Result But I Was Amazed When I Check Out The Last Two One Which On Clamp Meter Screen Give Me ''0L''
What This Means? Is That Diode Have Malfunctions??Is This Reasons That The Output Of Solar Has Been Decreased? Plz Give Me Right Answer By Viewing The Image On
Details Are In Image.
Sorry but the details in the image are unreadable.
Here's what an OL can mean: Open Line, or Over Limit. It depends on the manufacturer of the meter. However, given that your meter is reading 0.433 (something - don't know if this is ohms, volts or amps) and the other (suspect) diodes are giving you a different reading - you may have to do some further testing.
Check for voltage from each side of the diode to ground. Hopefully your system is properly grounded, and you should see some voltage (DC voltage) to ground. Check it on the side without the color band (white band) then check it on the other side. The reading should be just about the same. Without a more detailed wiring diagram I can't tell for sure how those last two diodes are "In The Circuit".
A general understanding of diodes would suggest they should all read approximately the same. Since they are wired in "Diode Sets" they're probably meant to offer reverse current protection. On the right side of the picture is the positive lead, as indicated by the plus sign molded into the plastic box. So you don't have an inverter on each panel (common today). You have power going either to an inverter or to a bank of batteries that powers an inverter. But since there is an additional lead (I don't know where it comes from) bridging those two diodes, I suspect you may discover more information if you check for voltage across each diode pair.
Perhaps a better question to ask is "My PV system is malfunctioning. These are the readings I'm getting". Then detail what you are seeing.
The white band on the diode indicates the positive side of the diode. Since the positive side of the diode is to the positive side of the wiring the diodes are not used functionally to control current, except for the possibility of that third lead in the middle. Mostly they appear to be a reverse current protection.
I hope I've answered your question. As to why you're getting an OL indication - that I don't know. And Power Generation, Management & Distribution is my specialty. Been doing that for 30 years. Don't know if I can be of more help, but I'll try if I get more details on what you're doing, what you see and why you're even checking.
Best of luck with your project.
