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 house owners to use the sun to power daily life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothing, watching TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, many home owners discover that the convenience, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically minimize or even eliminate your electric bills
Whether you're a property owner, company, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can make up a large portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.
#2 Make a great return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power bill cost savings, the average American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the past ten years, property electrical energy costs have actually gone up by an average of three percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect versus unpredictable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're an organisation or property owner with ever-changing cash flow, going solar also assists you much better forecast and handle your expenses.
#4 Increase your residential or commercial property value
Several studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and offer quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, demand for properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential component of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry included 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 jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent method to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A normal residential solar panel system will remove 3 to 4 heaps 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 very important elements of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that decide to run responsibly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of consumer purchasing decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving 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 money down.
Numerous property owners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This means that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The utility companies are well-known for their varying and unreliable electrical energy prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and basic math, we can determine just how much electricity will be produced, and most importantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of 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
- 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
How Many Solar Panels Does It Take To Power A Three Bedroom House, And How Much Would It Cost?
Can't help with the cost, but my 6 kW photovoltaic solar system has 40 panels. In Martinez CA I get an annual average of about 20 kWh per day. Check your utility bills and see how much you use. That will give you a rough idea of what to expect.
You could check with your building department to determine where solar systems have been installed in your area. Most folks who have them are willing to talk about them.
6 Volt Solar Panels To Charge?
Ive Got 4 Solar Panels At 6 Volts Each What Is The Best Way To Wire Them Up To Run A 12 Volt Power Inverter
I know when you wire batteries up in series negative to positve and positive to negative then you add the voltages together. Like in a flashlight.
When you wire them up in parralel which is negative to negative and positive to positive, it remains the same voltage like when you jump start a car.
So somehow you will need to wire 2 sets up in parrel, then combine the two in series.
Just guessing. I would definitely check the final voltage with a $10 multimeter from walmart before you use it.
Are Solar Panals Real Expensive?
If they were not expensive everyone would be buying them and the government would not need to try subsidizing their purchase.
Unless you are in a frost-free area they need an antifreeze solution to circulate through the panels and heat exchangers to pick up the heat from that. They can also have costly repairs if tree branches fall on them. Unless you have a roof facing south you need a support to hold them up to catch the sun (with the potential for roof leaks where the supports are attached.)
How Do You Build A 3-D Model Of A Plant Cell?
I Would Like To Build A 3-D Model Of A Plant Cell For A Biology Project. I Would Not Like To Use Food.But If I Have To I Will Manage.
You do not have to use food! The simplest, and best way to build a 3d model is to use parts that have metaphorical significance instead of things that look like the actual plant part.
For example, use a shoebox for the cell wall of a plant-- this is a good analogy because the cell wall of a plant is rigid and gives the rest of the cell its sturdy (but relatively immobile) structure. For the chloroplasts, you can put in a small piece of mirror and call it a "solar energy panel" because chloroplasts essentially harness energy in the form of sunlight and turn it into a usable energy for themselves.
By making these analogies, you will have really nice ways to remember the organelles of the cell, and you will also avoid food altogether. Good luck!
What Are Other Opinions On This Potential Stimulus Package?
The thing that made the Great Depression great was that we allowed the market to adjust by itself. For three years. It didn't and finally we stepped in and did all of those socialist things that kept our people working and the economy moving. But what really got us out of the depression was the Great War. At the end of WWII we were 125% of the GNP in debt, compared to the 1% we are now in debt.
Learning from our experiences we jumped right into the fray this time. Not everything was done correctly. We are still trying to bail out AIG but this time have modified the agreement to be more like the European Union's. Now we own stock in AIG and have voting rights on what they do. No more parties at the SPA ! ! !
In the end we need to create domestic jobs. We need to create our own energy. If we create a demand for Algae farms that produce oil in prodigious amounts when we use CO2 saturated water that was used to scrub smoke stacks from an electric generating dynamo, we lessen the carbon loading of the atmosphere from the smoke stacks and create a new crop that produces Oxygen and Oil. Whew, that was a long sentence that wound around a viable solution to at least two of our problems. Lack of domestic energy and too much CO2 in the atmosphere.
When we are spending $700 billion a year on foreign oil and complaining about spending $700 billion to bail out wall street we need to take alook at how we are spending our money.
If it was mandated that every new house built would have to have a Geo-Thermal heat pump to heat and cool the house, Solar-Voltic panels to generate free electricity to not only run the heat pump but charge the Electric Vehicle in the garage, we would be free of our dependence on oil in less time than it would take to drill, and make productive, new oil wells off shore or in Alaska.
How many new products, like Geo-Thermal heat pumps and Solar Panels, would we be producing with that plan? How many farmers would be back at work? How many new houses built? New cars made? UM, a lot? Yes that many.
The old way is not working, lets get started on the new way.
