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 everyday life: running your a/c unit, washing clothes, watching TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, numerous property owners discover that the benefit, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically lower and even remove your electric costs
Whether you're a homeowner, company, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can make up a big part of your regular monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your energy expenses and you'll still save a great deal of cash.
#2 Make an excellent return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power bill savings, the average American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus increasing energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical energy costs have increased by approximately 3 percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and protect versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a business or property owner with fluctuating cash flow, going solar also helps you better projection and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home worth
Multiple studies have found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater property values and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties 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 capacity to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market included tasks 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 anticipated to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A common property solar panel system will get rid of 3 to four loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are crucial parts of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that choose to operate responsibly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are an effective driver of consumer purchasing choices, developing goodwill and enhancing company 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 money down.
Lots of property owners opt to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The energy companies are notorious for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic mathematics, we can calculate what does it cost? electricity will be produced, and most significantly, at exactly what rate, for at least the next Twenty 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

Why Do Train Cars Have Solar Panels?
I Was Riding Amtrack The Other Day, And We Passed A Long Train Of Hopper Cars Withe Some Kind Of Ore. In Each End Of Each Car Was A Small Solar Panel. What Would These Be Used For?
The solar panel is for charging a battery.The cars are hopper cars that can be dumped by a remote signal.
ghost train? LMAO! yeah right

Since Solar Panels Are Becoming Popular. Where Can I Get The Training To Install, Maintain, And Repair Them?
I Am A Journeyman Electrician But No One Here Seems To Know About This.
If you're already a journeyman, I think you're 90% there. There is an expanded federal tax credit for photovoltaic panels coming on line next year, so solar installation companies may be getting a boost in business, at least in areas where the people are not hurting from the economy. And when the economy improves, it only gets better.
Photovoltaic panels rarely need maintenance or repair. If something goes wrong, it's likely to be simple and catastrophic, such as lightning hit it, or a bullet, or a falling tree.
As for installation, a number of panels are wired in series (it's all plug and play, with the new MC-3 connectors), and then the wires go into a junction box. From there, it's all stuff you already know, wire gauge appropriate for the current, insulation rating for the temperature, conduit fill factors, compliance with the NEC, etc., all the way down to the inverter and service panel. It's not that different from adding a new circuit to somebody's house.
Your best move may be to work for a solar installation company for a while. They can use your skills with the hookup, and you can learn how they architect a system based on the customer's energy use, and how they do the physical installation.
I Have A Question About Solar Panels?
So During The Day, Electricity Is On, Everything Is On And Working Fine. But At Night Where There Is No Sunlight Does All The Electricity Shut Down For The Night? So There Is No Light On For Me During The Night, Or I Can'T Watch Tv At Night? Is It Also True That With Solar Panels, Your Bills Are Less Expensive. Can Someone Please Tell Me These Things
>But at night where there is no sunlight does all the electricity shut down for the night?
Electrical production shuts down, but most solar electric systems have some way of storing power.
There are two main types of storage:
1. Grid tie. Basically this uses the power grid as a "virtual" battery. You produce extra power during sunlight hours to "sell" to the grid (other people use it) and you buy power from the grid when the sun doesn't shine.
This is usually the most economical system, but whether you save money depends on a lot of things like: cost of installation, location, government subsidies & how much you get for the electricity you sell & buy.
In other words, the details matter. Mostly location, which determines how much sunlight you get, electric rates, and subsidies.
2. Batteries. Usually a large bank of deep cycle lead acid batteries. Usually only used in "off-grid" systems and the cost of electricity is usually not competitive with grid electricity.
Were Solar Panels Made By Copying How Plants Collect Sunlight?
In Nature, Green Leaves Collect Light And Produce Energy. Is This What They Copied To Make Solar Panels? If Not How Hard Would It Be To Make Artificial Leaves That Would Power Our Homes?
Solar panels were not made to copy leaves. Leaves have molecules that become excited when they are hit by light. They store this energy in ADP molecules and ATP molecules. This works great for biological processes, but until we learn how to use Adenosine Di/Triphosphate to transport energy, we are better off sticking with our solar panels. They produce electricity, which we know how to use.
