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 ac system, cleaning clothes, enjoying TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, numerous residents find that the benefit, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically reduce or perhaps eliminate your electrical bills
Whether you're a homeowner, business, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can comprise a large part of your regular monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your utility bills and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.
#2 Make a great return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the finest ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power bill cost savings, the typical American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the past ten years, domestic electricity rates have actually gone up by an average of three percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're an organisation or property owner with fluctuating capital, going solar also helps you much better forecast and manage your expenses.
#4 Boost your house worth
Multiple research studies have discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for homes 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 a crucial component of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in worldwide 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 total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A normal residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are necessary components of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that decide to run properly. Companies are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of consumer acquiring decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing business results.
#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 cash down.
Many homeowners select to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
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 fluctuating and unreliable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and easy math, we can determine what does it cost? electrical power will be produced, and most notably, at what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Can We Take This Global Warming Advocate Seriously?
Al Gore Has Added A 100 Foot Houseboat To His Personal Collection Of Stuff. He Gave It A Green Name, But Do We Really Believe That It's Carbon Neutral? Shouldn't He Be Setting An Example Of Austerity If He Wants Everyone Else To Cut Back On Their Energy Consumption?
The truth is no one takes him serious, including himself.
It's funny, but even when he added the solar panels the amount of energy he uses each month went up instead of down.
Now he uses about 30 times the average. What a hog.
I'm just glad he's not too concerned about global warming. It's good when the guy who makes the most from the hoax doesn't believe in it either.
We can all be relieved that it is now a certified scam.
Are There Solar Panels On The Market Over 22 Percent Efficentcy?
Are There Any Solar Panels I Can Buy Online With Efficiency Over 22 Percent?
No, that is the maximum reached in commercial panels (and that is even very high, most are 16 - 18 %), silicone based solar panels have a maximum of 30 % (that has to do with the crystalline structure) and they are slowly getting there.
There are panels used by NASA with other materials on satellites and space probes but they are extremely expensive.
They work on other concepts: organic materials, sandwich panels but it seems they are years into the future.
I Want To Run 350 Watts 20 Hours A Day And Use Easy To Use Solar Panels That Come With A Box That You Can Just Directly Plug Any 3 Prong Cable Into. How Much Might That Cost And What Do I Need? Really Id Like To Do 500Watts 20 Hours A Day But For Right Now Maybe 350 Or Even 300 Would Be More Cost Effective.
The plug in solar is a gray area and only one leg of the 240 VAC output of the grid tied inverter is plugged into the wall outlet. You basically only get half the power you paid for.
The energy in 350 watts for 20 hours a day is 7,000 watt hours. You have about six hours a day insolation in the southern US states so it would take 1,166 watts to generate that energy per day. A household wall outlet can handle 1,800 watts at best but as the very questionable plug in products only use one leg of their inverters, you'll probably haave to buy twice that capacity.
Would Solar Panels On The Roof Be Damaged?
What About Snow?
Solar panels are pretty durable pieces. Most panels I've worked with come with a 25 year manufacturers warranty so you shouldn't be worried as much about damage than keeping them clean. After it snows you should any frost coating off the panels as it may interfere with the efficiency of the panels. Only extreme weather conditions would damage the panels. Since they're purpose is to be outdoors, they're built to last.
Can I Couple My Electric Air Conditioner With Solar Panel Without Using A Inverter?
Energy from a solar panel is direct current (DC), typically 12 to 48 volts. Conversely, most air conditioning equipment uses alternating current (AC). I suppose you could find air conditioning equipment that runs on DC. Hunt around! They are made specifically for trucks and other vehicles. You'll need to analyze whether you want to buy all new air-conditioning equipment, or just go ahead and get an inverter.
