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 daily life: running your air conditioner, cleaning clothes, seeing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while lowering 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 considerable, lots of residents find that the convenience, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically lower or even eliminate your electrical costs
Whether you're a property owner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can comprise a large part of your month-to-month expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your utility bills and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.
#2 Make a great return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the finest ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power expense savings, the average American house owner pays off 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 photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical power costs have actually increased by approximately three percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unforeseeable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a service or house owner with ever-changing money circulation, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and manage your expenses.
#4 Increase your home value
Multiple studies have discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher home worths and offer quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial element of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is an excellent method to minimize 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 typical property photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to 4 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are crucial parts of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding organisations that decide to run responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of consumer buying decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing company results.
#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.
Numerous house owners pick to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar company 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 Investment
The utility business are infamous for their fluctuating and unreliable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and easy math, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical energy will be generated, and most importantly, at 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

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 Do Solar Panels Work?
Im Fourteen And Looking For A Career I Already Know Solar Panels Capture The Sun And Turn It Into Energy But I Would Like To Know More.
A solar panel is a collection of solar cells (photovoltaic cells) connected together and put in an enclosure.
The solar cells work by taking advantage of the photovoltaic effect. The effect is that in a semiconductor P-N junction, when photons of suitable energy strike the junction, an electron and electron-hole pair are generated. This creates a voltage difference between the two sides. When this voltage is applied to a circuit, the electrons are able to flow through, creating usable energy.
What Needs To Be Done In Order To Make Solar Power Affordable And Available?
Solar hot water heating already makes sense in many locations. It seems like every new house in Honolulu has it.
As for solar electric (photovoltaic panels), the technology is expensive for utility-scale generation, but financially viable for individual homes in increasing areas of the country. That's because a utility can have a nuclear or coal-fired boiler, and produce electricty at (say) 2 cents a kWh. For a consumer, though, the utility may charge 20 cents a kWh, on par with what solar electric costs, so the consumer can break even by putting panels on the roof. Unless a consumer is lucky enough to have running water for hydropower, or solid wind, there isn't a cheaper way to make electricity than solar.
The price of solar panels should be coming down as more manufacturers come on line. I think we will see an evolution rather than a revolution in the next few years, just as the price of PC's was initially high, then slowly came down.
Can A Solar Panel Get Energy If There Is A Lot Of Clouds Blocking The Sun?
The efficiency is reduced...that's why you need a heat sink or other storage system to see you through the times when the sun is not out.
You also need to have shutters on your collectors or valves that will shut off the them off otherwise the system can flow backwards and actually lose energy during cloudy days or at night.
In some areas rather then using the collected heat as is its actually more efficient to use it as a tempering or preheating system.
The majority of the energy used to produce (hot water)for example is used to bring the water from cold entry temperature to room temperature say 50-60 percent.
But if you mix your solar heated water into the water to bring it up to room temperature then you only need 40-50 percent to kick it up.
Why Solar Panels Are Expensive?
In Some Countries Where Electric Generation Is Low, They Are Not Available Easily.
Believe it or not, solar panels are so expensive in this country because of government subsides. Without market competition, companies have no obligation to compete with each other on price. If our government would stop paying people to buy solar panels and giving solar panel companies tax breaks, companies would be forced to lower their price and raise their quality in order to get you to buy their product.
This would be true of oil/gas, corn, soy beans and a number of other companies and products as well.
Can Anyone Explain How To Hook Up Solar Panels In Simple Terms?
I Want To Put A 125 Watt Polycrystaline Solar Panel On My Van. Im Not Mechanically Inclined At All. Why Are The Kits So Much More Expensive Then The Panels Alone? Doesnt Seem Right To Charge 4 Times As Much For A Charge Controller And Some Wire.
My Undertanding So Far, Mount Panel On Roof, Connect Charge Controller, Drill Hole To Get Wires Inside, Connect To Battery, Connect Power Inverter To Batterry An I Should Have Power?
If Anyone Knows How Or Knows A Site That Explains This, It Would Be Greatly Appreciated, Thanks.
Just what do you think you are going to accomplish by doing this? The battery in a vehicle doesn't need a solar panel to keep it charged.... and simply hooking a solar panel up to your single battery will not let you power things if you think you are going to start living in your van.
Just what is the purpose of all of this?
