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 resident to use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning system, cleaning clothing, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, lots of homeowners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically decrease and even remove your electric bills
Whether you're a property owner, service, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can make up a large portion of your monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your utility bills and you'll still save a lot of loan.
#2 Earn a fantastic return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the finest ways to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity expense cost savings, the average American property owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, residential electrical power rates have actually increased by an average of three percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and protect versus unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a company or homeowner with fluctuating capital, going solar also helps you better forecast and manage your costs.
#4 Increase your residential or commercial property worth
Numerous studies have actually found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher home values and offer more rapidly 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 become more educated about solar, need for homes equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price changes in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar market added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency 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 an excellent way to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A typical residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are necessary parts of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that decide to operate responsibly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of customer buying choices, creating 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 property owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Many homeowners choose to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- 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 Investment
The energy business are notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electrical energy rates. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can compute just how much electricity will be produced, and most significantly, at what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty 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
Is Desert Sand Or Soda Lime A Raw Material For Solar Panel, Who Makes Equipmnt For Processing The Raw Material?
My Interest Is To Identify And Develop A Possibility Of Having Africa To Contribute At A Stage In The Development Of Alternative Energy Solutions
Sand can be used to make the wafers for solar. However there is currently a glut of silicon on the market and it is very very cheap. The set up on a facility with clean rooms and the mterials you need would run into the many millions. Good luck.
What Are Solar Panels Made Of And What Are There Advantages And Disadvantages?
They're made of wafers of crystalline silicon, and attached wires.
They make pollution free electricity.
Dis- not so good under cloudy skies, expensive.

What Is The Difference Between Photovoltaic Panels And Solar Panels?
Solar panels collect energy from the sun and then provide it to a system that typically concentrates it.
Solar energy comes to us in the form of heat and light. Photovoltaic panels take the light energy from the sun and convert it to electricity. Although the maximum efficiency is around 42% in the lab most commercial models you will see are from 8 to 22% efficient. Adding collectors together concentrates this energy into usable amounts.
Solar thermal panels are from 60 to 80% efficient. They come in many different types and collect the heat energy from the sun. That heat may then be stored in some form of thermal mass where it becomes concentrated sufficiently to be used. Solar thermal panels can be used to heat a medium. This can be a phase change material, air, or water. Solar thermal air panels are cheap to make and offer a quick pay back period. Solar thermal panels for some heating and hot water systems circulate water. Vacuum tube collectors are solar thermal "panels" that may heat water directly or a phase change materials. They can operate better in cloudy and colder weather with more efficiency. Air and water panels are often called "flat panels" as a way to contrast them with vacuum tube collectors.
Solar thermal panels often lead to some form of energy storage called thermal mass (water tanks, phase change materials, masonry walls and rocks.) Photovoltaic panels make electricity that is stored in batteries, used or sent to the general grid.
Panels are only one way to collect solar thermal energy. Other types of "collectors" are used commercially and are often called simply solar "concentrators." Some are called parabolic trough collectors and parabolic dish collectors.
Ive Been Thinking About Getting Solar Panels For My Home. Is It A Good Idea I Want To Hear From You Guys Who?
Have Them On Your Home. My House Is About 1700 Square Feet. About How Much Would It Coast Me To Go Completely Solar? I Have Ac, Water Heater, Couple Of Televisions,Refrigerator And All That Good Stuff.
We looked into that about 6 yrs ago when we built our home. The cost was astronomical. If I recall, something in the order of $90,000 for our 2200 sq ft ranch to go 80% off-the-grid.
I like the idea of 'going green', but "green" often costs double, or even triple. You won't be "saving money" for at least 30+ years, and that's only if the costs of the panels remains stable. I would hope they would have declined by now, but they haven't moved much in the last 10 years.
I read a report in Scientific American about a year or so ago that suggested the cost to produce panels now is less then $500 per panel. So why the 1000+% markup? Answer: Because it's "green".
