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, cleaning clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, numerous homeowners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically decrease and even eliminate your electrical costs
Whether you're a house owner, business, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can comprise a large portion of your month-to-month expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your utility bills and you'll still save a lot of money.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power costs savings, the typical American house owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, residential electricity rates have gone up by approximately three percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and secure against unpredictable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a business or property owner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home worth
Numerous research studies have discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and offer 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 educated about solar, need for properties equipped with photovoltaic 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 element of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate variations in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Since 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 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent way to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A typical domestic photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are essential parts of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that decide to operate properly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective driver of customer purchasing choices, producing goodwill and improving company results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Numerous property owners opt to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
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 notorious for their varying and unreliable electricity costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic mathematics, we can determine just how much electrical energy will be produced, and most importantly, at exactly what price, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed 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

Frequently Asked Questions
Joule Thief Vs Solar Panel?
Ok, So I'Ve Been Having Much Success With The Joule Thief Circuit And A Led, But I Tried Hooking It Up To A Small Solar Panel That Can Put Out 2.5V On It'S Own, And Can Light Up A White Led Dimly By It Self To The Joule Thief And It Will Not Work ....My Question Is Why? I Already Trouble Shooted It, The Circuit Is Not The Problem, Is It The Amount Of Amps The Small Solar Panel Is Capable Of? Not Enough?
Solar panels convert light energy to electrical energy with an efficiency of around 15%.
A "SMALL" solar panel will only produce a small amount of power (watts)
your joule thief circuit wont help because as you draw more current from the solar panel the voltage will drop; and your joule thief circuit just reduces the efficiency of the whole system
Try adding another solar cell in series to get more voltage and more power.
Why Not Make Solar Panels Mandatory?
The Way I See It If Every New House Over 1000Sq.Ft. Puts A Solar Panel On There Roof Coal Factories Wouldn'T Have To Put Out As Much Electricity. Then Make All New Commercial Buildings Over A Certain Sq.Ft. Be Required To Put Solar Panels On. The Bigger The Building, More Solar Panels. The Government Should Make This Technology Cheaper And Easier To Buy. New Buildings And Houses Can Add It On There Mortgage. Etc. Just A Thought. Please Send Replies I Am Thinking About Calling My Representative.
The Average System Is 15-30 Thousand Dollars But That For A System To Power Your House All Day And Night. Of Course You Don'T Create Power At Night But You Electric Company Buys What You Don'T Use. I'M Asking To Put A 5Kwh Or Smaller On All New Houses Put The Cost In You Mortgage Should Only Add 1-5 Thousand Dollars.
The price is to high! the systems fail. the though is good. mandatory? we need an energy policy that promotes clean energy/wind, solar PV, solar thermal, solar hot water, solar A/C and chillers, nukes, and taxes to the real price of oil, coal, beef....
Solar Paneling - How Good Is It? Worth The Set Up Costs?
Any Information On Solar Paneling Now, How Is It Better, How Long Will A Panel Last, Can I Run An Entire Home On It If I Have The Right Amount Of Sunlight? Any Info From People With First Hand Experience Would Be Appreciated.
It depends a lot on where you live for two reasons - how much sun you get, and the financials - price of electricity and possible incentives.
I'd suggest solar hot water first - cheaper to put in, quicker payback.
We put up solar electric in 2006. It's not a big moneymaker in our location, and also, I unfortunately oversized our system. Still, it's comparable to the electric company, maybe a slight savings over time. Pretty much no maintenance, no problems.
What you can do is get a local solar installer to quote you on a system, then compare that to your possible electric bills over the life of the system. It will likely last 20-25 years - that's the standard warranty on panels.
Solar Panels Question: What Module (Approximate Kw?) Can Be Installed On A 900 Sq. Feet Flat Roof Near Toronto?
Hi, Feedback From Anyone With Knowledge On The Topic Would Be Appreciated! Thanks.
Toronto is about latitude 45 degrees. A flat roof does not sound like a good place to put solar panels at high latitude. Even if we ignore the issue of snow collecting on the panels, if you lay them flat on the roof, you'll throw away some 30 percent of the energy right off the bat. And if you arrange the panels in tilted rows, then the front row will block the one behind it in the winter. All that said, if the roof is a square, 30 feet on a side, it seems you could fit a single tilted row of panels on it without drawbacks. I'm guessing that would be 2.5 kW or so. That also assumes there are no obstructions like other buildings, wires, or drain vents.
Try contacting a local solar installer for an opinion.
12 Volt Solar Panel + Dc To Ac Inverter?
Can You Use A 12 Volt Solar Panel With A Cigarette Lighter Connector Straight To A Dc To Ac Inverter? To Charge Things Like A Laptop (Or Hold A Charge, May Not Be Powerful Enough To Charge It)
Maybe Have A Battery Between? Would That Help? Like A Motorcycle Battery? Im Going On A Trip And Need A Cheap Way To Keep Things Charged.
You need a battery to hold and equalize the charge.
You will need an 80W+ panel to have a net gain.
I recommend an AGM 8GU1 type battery for that sort of duty, and a 150W inverter.
