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 a/c unit, cleaning clothes, viewing 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 environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, many homeowners find that the benefit, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably lower or even remove your electrical expenses
Whether you're a property owner, service, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can make up a large part of your regular monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.
#2 Make a terrific return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power costs cost savings, the average American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical energy rates have gone up by an average of 3 percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're an organisation or property owner with ever-changing money circulation, going solar also helps you much better projection and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your house worth
Several research studies have found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater home worths and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need for homes geared up 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 part of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost variations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with 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 tasks in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a great way 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 remove three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are crucial parts of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding services that decide to run responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of customer buying choices, creating goodwill and improving service results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Numerous homeowners opt to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This means that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar provider 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 Investment
The energy companies are infamous for their fluctuating and unreliable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can calculate how much electricity will be created, and most notably, at what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).
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
Questions About Renewable Energy?
If Someone Was Wanting To Build A House That Utilized Renewable Energy, Why Is It Important That The House Faces The North? What Kinds Of Renewable Energy Would Need The House To Be Facing North And Why? Thanks
Facing the house South or North depends upon which hemisphere you live in. In the Northern Hemisphere the Sun appears to move South in the winter, so you would want your solar panels and windows facing South to take full advantage of the sunlight. Ideally the North wall should have no windows at all (except for perhaps an artist's room) and it is even better if the entire wall is built underground.
I Need To Connect A Solar Panel To A 400Watt Inverter. What Size, Watt, Amp Solar Panel Do I Need?
I Need To Connect A Solar Panel To A 400Watt Inverter. What Size, Watt, Amp Solar Panel Do I Need?
I'm Trying To Run My Inverter Off Of A Solar Panel, But So Far My 12V, 150Ma Doesn't Work. I'm Guessing That It Has To Be A Certain Ampere And/Or Wattage. Please Help!!
A panel labeled as 12V, 150mA has a practical output of 1 watt, so probably far less than needed to even start up your inverter. I'm guessing that the inverter is the type that normally plugs into a car? Those are not especially efficient, because they know the car's battery can supply ample current, and they want to be low-cost.
What you could do is charge a car battery over a period of weeks with your panel, then connect the inverter to the car battery.
Another experiment, if you can get an ammeter, is to measure how much the inverter is drawing from the car battery when you have your desired device plugged into it. That will tell you what current you need from your solar panel.
My wild guess is that you would want at least 80 to 100 watts of panel, unless you wanted to power something that's several hundred watts, in which case, you would buy a panel (say) 40% bigger than your load. This is because the cheap inverter will waste a lot of energy as heat.
Is It True Thet Solar Panels. . ?
Dont/Cant Work Alone?
When You Buya Asolar Panel You Must Get Batteries, Voltage Regulators And Many Else Stuff?
Cant They Just Work Directly? Or Can I Use Normal Batteres Like Car Batteries?
The One Who Really Knows 10 Pts.
Solar panels provide DC current, and can work great on things that use DC current, just the same as a car battery.
however to run things that run off from AC current you need a power inverter, you can get one in many stores in the camping supplies, mine cost $40, and when I was living off from the grid, I would run my TV, and VCR off my car battery for 3 to 4 hours, or an electric light bulb for several hours.
Buy contacting your local electric company, you can hook directly into the grid with a 2 way meter and store your energy on the grid, so that when you are producing more power that you are using, the meter runs backwards, and you get credit for that power and can use it when you need it.
This is just some of the power inverters available.
How Does Solar Pannel Electricity Work?
I Mean, How Does It Work During The Night When The Sun Isn'T Out? Is There A Battery Generator Being Charged Of A Day That Goes Into Battery Power Of A Night, Or Something?
During the day when the sun is up, you generate electricity which is stored in your grid for when you need it, during the night you do not generate any electricity because the sun is not up, however you still have the electricity generated from that day. Also during the night you tend not to use a lot of electricity.
You might also be wondering what happened what you use up all you generated electricity, well your electricity company still provides you with electricity as a back up which you only use when you need it, this is why your electricity bill is extremely low when you have solar panels on your roof. Another upside to having solar panels is that for every watt of electricity you product, the government pays you roughly 45p per watt.
Hope this helped!
So I'M Wanting To Eventually Get Solar Panels.?
I'Ve Heard Environmentalists Like Ed Begley Jr Use The Phrase &Quot;Peak Shaving Hours&Quot; When Talking About Solar Energy.What Does That Phrase Mean, Please?Thank You To All Who Respond.
From a power company's perspective, it costs more to supply electricity during hours when electricity use is high. The times of day when power use is the highest are called "peak" hours.
Historically power companies would sometimes charge large power users a higher rate during peak hours to encourage them to shift their electricity use to other times of the days.
With the development of smart power meters and smart grid technology, it's now possible to offer the same incentive to individual home owners.
>so i'm wanting to eventually get solar panels.?
If you live in an area where the electric rate varies depending on the time of day, then "peak shaving" improves your payback/return of investment on grid tied solar panels.
Particularly in areas with high air conditioner usage, the peak hours generally correspond to the times when solar panels generate the maximum power.
Look at it like this: Suppose your power company charges you $0.15/kWH during off peak hours and $0.30/kWH during peak hours.
Because the solar panels generate the most power when the cost of electricity is the highest, it is easier to justify the cost of installing the panels because you are avoiding buying electricity at the highest rate.
If your power company just bills you at a flat rate at all times, then it becomes more difficult to justify the cost of installing the panels and associated equipment..
