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 a/c, washing clothes, viewing TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are substantial, many property owners discover that the benefit, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably reduce and even remove your electric bills
Whether you're a house owner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can make up a large portion of your month-to-month costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce 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 reduce your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power expense savings, the typical American homeowner settles their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the past 10 years, residential electrical power rates have increased by approximately three percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and secure against unforeseeable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a service or homeowner with fluctuating money flow, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and handle your expenses.
#4 Increase your home worth
Numerous studies have discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher home worths and offer quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need for residential or commercial properties equipped 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 key component of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price changes in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A normal residential photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to four loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are necessary parts of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that choose to run responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of consumer purchasing choices, creating goodwill and enhancing business 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 loan down.
Lots of homeowners decide to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility business are infamous for their fluctuating and undependable electricity rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and easy math, we can determine how much electrical energy will be created, and most significantly, at what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed 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 Solar Panels For Residential Use?
How Much Do You Think It Would Cost For Installation?
I Heard That Solar Panels Can Store Electricity And Any Excess Electricity Gets Sold Back To The Electric Company. How Much Money Can A Home Owner Make From Doing This?
Do You Think Solar Panels Are Worth It?
If you're in a sunny area, and the cost of electricity is high, solar panels can be worth it. But it's not a big moneymaker, it's something that pays back over long timeframes. We live in northern California, and our system is about break even, but that's because our electricity usage was low to begin with. If you want to see our system, look at the web page in my profile.
Are panels worth it in your area? The only way to know for sure is to find a local installer in your phone book, and then ask for local references. If you can't find a local installer, that's a clue, and if they can't give you any references that are nearby, that's another clue.
The panels don't actually store energy, the energy is sold back to the power company when what you produce is more than you consume, driving the meter backwards. Again, this is not a big moneymaker, and in fact, it may be impossible to make a profit, depending on your local laws.
How Do Solar Panels Work?
Ive Tried Reaserching It But I Never Get A Clear Answer Or The Answer Is For Insiders Who Work With This.
When light hits the semiconductors in the panel, the electrons absorb the energy and are knocked free from the atoms and flow freely in one direction to create an electric current.
Why Are Solar Panels So Expensive?
It Is Very Convenient For Power Companies That We Can Not Get Free Power From Sun.
Is It A Real Technological Problem Or It Is Only A Political Issue?
Because producing solar cells requires lots of fossil fuel derived energy, more than they produce during their life, in most cases!
Why Do People Think Solar Power Is Energy Efficent?
At Cost It Runs 3 To 1
But A Old Fashioned Heat Pump Runs 5 To 1 , And The Amount Of Crap That Goes Into Solar Panel Construction Out Ways The Total Benefits And Finally The Things Are Nearly Impossible To Repair Compared To Heat Pumps , So The Panel Is Scrapped And A New One Fitted
Your use of Solar Power is kind of vague. Passive systems are very efficient because if they are set up right, they use virtually no power, or can be rigged to run on nothing.
The most basic of basic is just letting the sun come though a south facing window during the day. I have even seen jars of water and rock boxes used to retain heat for the evening hours.
I think you are going on about PV systems that generate electricity. They vary in performance, and performance can vary on installation. If you mount them on moving platform that can follow the sun, you will get the most use, or efficiency out of them. To complicate, you just cannot hook these things to your house. All have to go though a conversion to AC, and the equipment used can effect that efficiency as well. In short, it would be hard to judge what your basing your figures on until you specify the exact set up, the stated outputs, the actual outputs, the entire set up, and where you live.

It would be more expensive than the average solar panel. For one its experimental and second its about 300% more effective than solar panels. Plants use 90% of the sunlight that hits them, solar panels only use 30
