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 homeowner to use the sun to power daily life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothing, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, lots of home owners find that the convenience, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically lower or perhaps remove your electrical bills
Whether you're a property owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can comprise a big portion of your month-to-month expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your utility costs and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power costs 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 increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical energy rates have increased by an average of 3 percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect against unpredictable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're a service or homeowner with rising and falling money circulation, going solar also assists you much better projection and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home value
Numerous studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, need for homes equipped 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 a key part of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price fluctuations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a terrific method to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A normal property photovoltaic panel system will remove three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are essential parts of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that choose to operate responsibly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of customer acquiring choices, developing goodwill and enhancing business results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Numerous homeowners pick to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility 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 energy business are infamous for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can determine what does it cost? electrical power will be generated, and most notably, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired 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.
- 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
If People Started Using White Roofing Shingles Would This Reduce Global Warming?
I Have Heard That Using Solar Panels Does Not Reduce Global Warming Because They Are Black And That They Actually Make The Earth Warmer. This Is Where I Got The Idea For My Question.
It would just reflect the rays, I don't think it would change anything. Either way the earth cools and heats naturally. For example when my parents where my age people were freaking out about global cooling, and now adays it's all about global warming. Just my opinion though
Could You Use A Solar Panel To Make Hho To Run A Generator To Power A Home.?
I Think If Solar Cells Become Damaged They May Expose The Environment To Toxic Materials That Are Within The Cells. If This Can Happen. Then I Don'T Want Them Near My Home. So If I Move Them Away From The Home There Is Significant Losses In Dc Voltages. Due To Long Run Leads. But If You Used It Away From The Home You Can Achieve That Efficiency Once Again By Making Hho To Run A Generator. Witch Produces Ac. Ac Doesn'T Have The Long Lead Loss That Dc Would Experience. And Safer By Distance. Like Being 100 Miles Away From A Nuclear Power Plant Verses 15 Miles Away. If There Is A Issue At Hand.

Could you use a solar panel to make hho to run a generator to power a home? ~yes~
I think if solar cells become damaged they may expose the environment to toxic materials that are within the cells. ~I believe this is a minor, perhaps negligible problem = The toxins are a problem when the solar cells are manufactured, not at disposal or damage~ if this can happen. then i don't want them near my home. so if i move them away from the home ~There is a significant possibility that remote solar cells will be stolen or vandalized~ there is significant losses in dc voltages. due to long run leads. ~you can connect many solar cells in series, and use a dc to dc converter to produce low voltage dc for electrolysis, and/or connect many electrolysis cells in series~ but if you used it away from the home you can achieve that efficiency ~ I suspect that the value of hho is seriously exaggerated, perhaps a scam~ once again by making hho to run a generator. which produces ac. ac doesn't have the long lead loss ~at the same RMS voltage, ac line losses are higher than dc line losses~ that dc would experience. and safer by distance. like being 100 miles away from a nuclear power plant verses 15 miles away. if there is a issue at hand.
Is It Possible To Build Solar Panels With Recycled Glass?
I Have An Important Eco Friendly House Project 2 Do So I Need Some Answers!!!! If U Could Also Post Some Sites That Wld B Gr8!!
It sounds like you're talking about passive solar - windows. Most of the time glass is actually "downcycled" - to use a term from the book Cradle-to-Cradle. With solar panels - photovoltaic (PV) - they use the highest quality products available. They do make one type of PV from glass, but it doesn't have the highest energy conversion rate.

Diagram On Building A Solar Panel To Heat My Home?
What Makes A Home Comfortable And Desireable To Live In Or Buy? Zero Energy Building, Living In An &Quot;Ecosphere&Quot;
I'M Currently Designing A Building For My Last Year Project In Industrial Design. It'S Going To Be A Completely Self Sustained Building, Prefabricated But Still Customizable In The Set Up.
My Question, If You'D Build A House Or Are Looking To Buy One:
What Do You Expect Or Want From A Home?
What Makes It Comfortable?
What Luxuries Should It Have?
How Much Would You Consider Destructive Natural Forces In The Design, Such As Storms, Earthquakes, Floods And Fire?
Have You Build Or Lived In A Similar Place, And Is There Anything You'D Do Different Next Time?
this is interesting as we have begun planning a house to build and we are asking ourselves the same questions
what do i want from a home: - protection, comfort, sanctuary
zero/to low impact on environment. zero to low energy use.
re destructive natural forces: we are looking at the AI Dome home designs but domes have some design limitations and the looks are only so so if you can see it. - you might not as
we are also looking at either earth-bermed or underground.
mostly i think we may go the quonset hut shape with the technology of the AI Dome type building - the shape lends itself to most home layout but still has a wide open feeling (we dont want a multistory) and if the home is placed partway up a hill we avoid flooding as well. this is also a very fire resistant way to build.
also i would use extensive insulation (i like the bluejean insulation) :) with those tube skylights - i probably would have more that one section and would connect them, maybe using shipping containers --putting the containers at least half underground and create window seats along the walls with small horizontal windows that look out on the property (to see wildlife without being seen- as i do a lot of photograpy
the front of the house would have a series of tall vertical narrow windows for letting in light without resorting to needing picture windows (heat loss, breakability, and security issues with large window masses)
what would i put in it: bamboo or cork flooring thru-out, a small soapstone masonry woodburning stove in addition to the radiant floor heating and the solar hot-water heating. in one of the extensions i would have a green house environment with water tanks that not only would filter household grey water but would raise small eating fish (mostly tilapia) solar panels would be used for electrical as well as a small windmill. hopefully being fully off grid.
using an open floor plan (the only walls would be ones that could be moved) rather japanese in feel -i would keep the colors soft and warm with pops of color in furniture and art work. with no carpeting (only cleanable area rugs) and no draperies, allergins and upkeep would be minimal.
luxuries i would want - a vulcan or wolf gas stove, subzero refrigerator and freezer. the whole house would be lined in bookcases - a large family sized dining table- computers/tvs would be a necessary luxury in our family and a place for playing music and working at our arts/crafts -a dark room for my photography
i dont know if we would want animals or not- i like the idea of raising my own chickens and pigs for food but not sure at our age we really want the responsibilty but if we did we would build the barn/henhouse on the same principals of protection and self sufficiancy.
is this the kind of thing you were looking for? it was fun to write--would love to bounce ideas of other like minded people
