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 resident to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c unit, washing clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, lots of home owners discover that the benefit, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically decrease and even eliminate your electric expenses
Whether you're a house owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can comprise a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your energy costs and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the finest methods to invest, with returns matching those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy expense savings, the typical American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical power costs have actually gone up by an average of three percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard against unpredictable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a company or property owner with changing cash flow, going solar also assists you much better forecast and manage your costs.
#4 Boost your residential or commercial property value
Several research studies have actually found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater home values and sell more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, need for properties geared up with solar 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 part of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost changes in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that 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 decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will eliminate three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are essential parts of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that decide to run properly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of customer buying choices, developing goodwill and improving business outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Lots of property owners opt to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar service provider 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 Investment
The energy companies are notorious for their varying and undependable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and easy math, we can compute how much electrical energy will be produced, and most notably, at what cost, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Is It Possible For A Refrigerator To Be Powered By Solar Energy?
If Possible, How Big Would The Panel Be Or How Much Solar Energy Would It Require?
Can Someone Please Give Me Info On How Much Energy Would Need To Power How Big Of A Refrigerator?
Refrigerators run intermittently, so the peak power and average power differ significantly. Read the data plate on the refrigerator to see how much power it requires; typically, it will be a few hundred watts. As for solar cells, they go for about $10 a watt, so a solar plant capable of running your refrigerator will cost several thousand dollars. A solar plant will produce a maximum of 2 kWh of electricity per year per watt of installed capacity, which has a market value of about 25 cents; unless you can get a huge subsidy (which sometimes you can), you would do better leaving your money in the bank and just paying the power company.
What Are Some Things I Need To Look For When Buying Solar Panels?
Like What Wattage And Size?
Well, wattage and size are important , so too is voltage and current. All of these should be matched to the project you have in mind, other wise it is just like buying a random battery and hoping it fits in your camera.
Perhaps the biggest issue will be cost. For any appreaciable project solar pannels can get really expensive

Solar panels can be a good investment especially if you are located in an area that gets good year round sun. Make sure that you shop around and know what you are getting. Make sure that you have a good warranty. Damaged or dead panels can greatly eat into your investment.
1.) Solar panels are a pretty complex addition to your facility and should only be installed by a professional. Here is why: 1.) panels are very fragile and can be broken or damaged easily. 2.) You want to have the panels in the absolute best position and placement and having a professional on-site will know exactly how and where to put them. 3.) Panels on the roof if installed incorrectly can cause a leaky roof 4.) Panels must be tied into your electric system and can be a fire hazard if installed incorrectly. There is also danger of injury when dealing with the electrical system and there must be an auto-relay shut off to keep your electricity from feeding back onto the grid in case of a power failure. If this is installed incorrectly you could electrocute a utility service technician when they come to reinstate power. You should also deal with a professional to make sure that you are on an optimal net metering contract with your provider. I can help you with that if you would like or answer more of your questions. Just give us a call at 800-977-4020.
2.) Providing the equipment is installed correctly there is very little maintenance and most panels are good for approximately 20 years.
3.) If you purchase panels there is a large upfront cost that is recouped over time through savings on your power bill or generation sold onto the grid (net metering). Chances are these solar panels will not generate 100% of your peak load and you will still have a small electric bill. It depends on your usage and what panels you get. There are options to rent panels which would minimize an upfront initial investment and offer smaller but continual savings throughout the rental term. You do not own the equipment though and you would need to pay a monthly fee for the rental expense.
4& 5.) I don't know the size panels that you need or the price for installation at your specific facility and therefore I cannot calculate a price for you. Generally you want to aim for having a return on investment in 3 years or less. You would need to call a solar dealer in your area. Make sure you call around and compare the specifications and warranty on your panels.
1.) You are being green and helping the environment (you could purchase 100% renewable energy at competitive pricing and be green without having a large capital investment - call me about that if you are interested)
2.) Purchasing panels increase the demand for panels and helps increase the production and over time will decrease the manufacturing costs and increase availability. While this doesn't really help you personally it is a big picture pro.
3.) Investing when you have the financing will allow you to reap the benefits later when you are unsure of your capital. It is a good long term investment and there is available financing for solar panels.
4.) You are increasing the property value of your facility.
There is a pretty high upfront cost that will take a few years to recoup. You are mounting the equipment on the roof and connecting to your breaker box etc. It is taking a risk that you might have some leak or wiring problems down the road. Having the installation done by a professional that guarantees their work minimizes this risk.
I hope this helps answer your questions. We are available if you need any more advice. We give advise away for free here... You might as well take advantage of it.
All the best
