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 home owners to use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothing, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are significant, lots of home owners find that the convenience, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically minimize or even remove your electric bills
Whether you're a house owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can comprise a big portion of your monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your energy bills and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power 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 Protect against rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy rates. In the past 10 years, property electricity rates have increased by an average of 3 percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect against unpredictable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a business or property owner with changing capital, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and handle your costs.
#4 Increase your home worth
Several studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher property worths and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, need for homes equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial part of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost changes in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar market added 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 growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a terrific way to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A typical residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are necessary components of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding organisations that opt to operate responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" credentials are an effective driver of consumer buying choices, producing 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 cash down.
Lots of house owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility companies are infamous for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward trend.
With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can compute how much electricity will be produced, and most significantly, at exactly 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.

Solar Energy Features?
I'M Trying To Do A Feature- Benefit Chart For Solar Energy. Can I Get Some Features? Ex. It'S Waterproof, Environmentally Friendly, Etc. It Would Also Be Great If You Brought Some Benefits Along With Those Features But It Isn'T Really Necessary. Thanks.
Solar energy collection produces no emissions whatsoever. Solar energy collection consumes no fossil fuels. Solar energy collection makes electricity out of energy that is otherwise not collected at all. Passive solar energy collection has no moving parts. The principal materials required to manufacture solar energy collectors are among the most common materials on earth.
Of course, manufacture of solar electric panels has some energy use, some fossil fuel use, some pollution, and some waste, but not very much more so than any other current energy production method and quite a bit less than for some. Installation and maintenance of solar collectors also has costs, again usually not more than, say, the same wattage in coal burning power plants. Active solar systems, which use a medium to store heat overnight and through overcast days, have some of the same issues as any thermal electric generation scheme.
One feature of solar power is that it is available only during local daylight hours, and then only when the skies are not overcast with stratus clouds. This is considered a drawback.
Can One Solar Panel Kit (A) Charge Another Kit (B) With A Led Light Buld, That Charges Panel Kit (A)?
Could One Solar Kit Charge Another Solar Kit That Charges The First Solar Kit
Technically it "could"... but there is always a loss of heat somewhere in the equation (the bulb) in which case panel A would slowly not have enough energy to properly charge the bulb, ending the cycle. Though this would be efficient, it would not be possible for very long after you took light away from panel A. It is impossible to gain perpetual energy. There is always some form of Heat or Friction.
What Kind Of Battery Storage System Can I Use With A Small 20 Watt Solar Pane?
I Have A Small Hydroponics System I Am Building That Uses Low Amounts Of Power.
The Only Reason It'S Going Solar Is Because It'S Away From The House And My Parents Don'T Like Me Using Electricity (Plus It'S A Project That Could Be Kinda Fun). Anyways I Need To Power A Computer Fan For About 14 Hours A Day For Cooling Of My Nutrient Solution So The Plants (Rhubarb Of All Things, My Prototype (If You Want To Call It That Lol) Actually Grows It Well) Can Grow Okay In The Tropics, It Uses 4.3 Watts At 12 Vdc. Also I Want To Run A 5 Watt Air-Pump Continuously Or Something Along Those Lines.
It'S Fine And Dandy With The Panel That Will Be 20 To 30 Watts, I'Ll Just Go With Instapark From Amazon. But The Voltage Regulation So The Voltage Doesn'T Spike Past 13 Or So Vdc And Power Storage During Darkness Is An Unknown.
With A Larger System I'D Merely Purchase A Deep Cycle Battery Or Even Use A Normal Lead Acid Battery, Then Buy A Charge Controller. But It Seems Such A System Won'T Scale Down Very Effectively Cost Wise And I'M Better Off Going To 40 To 50 Watts. That'S Too Expensive, And Therefore To Do A Small System I Feel Lost :/
So If Anyone Has An Idea Of What To Do I'D Appreciate It Since I Could Spend Hours Reading And Hit The Same Conclusion Some Here May Have. :)
Since the battery will be located outside, I think a deep cycle battery is good. Wall Mart sells them for about $50.00 add a marine battery box for $15.00. A 45 watt solar panel costs $189.00 (or cheaper occasionally) and it comes with a charge controller. Get a 12 volt air pump for best efficiency, or a small inverter for $25.00.
Why Did Reagan Remove The Solar Panels From The White House As Soon As He Took Office?
During The Oil Embargo Of The 70'S, Carter Had Solar Panels Installed On The White House. When Reagan Took Office, In Additon To Eliminating About 90% Of The Tax Credits For Solar Research (In Effect, Raising Taxes On This Work), He Had The Solar Panels Taken Down And Sent To A Warehouse.
Why Would He Do This?
The answer is in the article,
"The solar heating panels were installed on the roof of the West Wing, but removed during Ronald Reagan´s presidency in 1986, after the energy crisis and worries about dependence on foreign oil had subsided."
