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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, cleaning clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. 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, lots of residents discover that the benefit, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically minimize or perhaps remove your electrical bills
Whether you're a property owner, service, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can make up a big part of your regular monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy expense savings, the average American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the past ten years, domestic electricity prices have gone up by approximately three percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure versus unforeseeable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a service or property owner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and manage your expenses.
#4 Increase your home worth
Several studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property worths and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, need 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 an essential element of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price changes in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a terrific method to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A common property solar panel system will get rid of three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are necessary components of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that opt to operate properly. Services are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of consumer purchasing choices, developing goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Lots of property owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
Since 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 varying and unreliable electrical energy rates. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can compute what does it cost? electrical power will be produced, and most notably, at 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

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
Can I Get Free Solar Panels?
Can I Fet Free Solar Panels.
This Site Http://Www.Freesolarpanels.Com/ Sells A Book That Tells How To, But I Ordered Tha Book More Then A Year A Go, And In Never Came. I Even Sent Them A Email A Day For More Then 3 Months And Never Heard Back From Them. If Anyone Knows How To Get Free Pannels, Please Let Me Know How. A $300.00 A Month Bill Is Slowly Killing Me.
I bought those books. I have CD's and Books on free renewable energy as well. It may not be a scam but no real information that was helpful to me. You get a book or CD that tells you the same things you can find on the web just by doing a search on the weakest search engines on the net. They say things like ask your local road crews for them. Here is a thought.. If the local road crew had free solar panels to give away the workers would take them home and sell them on ebay. Just go to a dealer or a good web dealers website and read and then ask questions. You can't buy anything for free. lol. If it is free it is free not for fee.
I still have those books and CD's from the very same people on that site laying aorund here somewhere. I think thay have a few other sites just like that one. As I remember in one of the books they tell you how to surive a blackout in cally by hooking a cheap inverter to your truck battery.. Duhh.. Then they talk about not being able to find gas for a generator but they have gas to run a truck? More of a way to lead you into thinking of making your own hydrogen and buying the hydrogen CD if you ask me.
And one other thing I found is that there is no way to stop them from sending you all that spam mail. It never stops comming trying to sell you the same books and CD's over and over. I bought the the books and CD's almost 6 years ago thinking I could learn something. But all it told me to do was to make my yard in to a junk yard by taking broken glass and other junk items. They will tell you to bake cakes and give to employees in glass shops to win them over so they will give you broken glass. Then they tell you to build your porch into a green house to warm your home. I guess it is a good idea but don't look very good and remember the permits and local codes and laws.
Tip on searching in Google and Yahoo. Forget about the first 30 to 100 lines in the list. They are all junk from big money trying to make big money or someone that just uses the word you searched for a bunch to get the page ranking. If you want real information you have to look on down in the list. I don't want to say all websites in the first 100 are junk but it just takes too long to find the good ones amist all the spam at the top.
Solar Panel On Apartment Porch?
I Would Like To Buy A Solar Panel To Put On Our Apartment Porch And Then Plug It Into Our Power Outlet On The Porch To Feed Back Into The Grid...I Know We Wouldn'T Be Making A Huge Difference But It Should Help Out Power Bill A Little Since We Get Very Full Sun Almost All Of The Time. How Can I Get This Done?
Hey Luv, the easiest way to accomplish this is with a device called a microsine inverter. There are basically 2 models out there. One is built by Trace engineering, or was, I think they stopped making them in about 2005, but there are plenty on ebay. It is called the OK4U micro sine inverter. It mounts on the back of a solar panel, and converts the panel out put to 120 volts AC, then plugs into a normal outlet. The other is built by Enphase, same basic device. But to be honest, I wouldn't recommend doing it.
Mainly for the reasons already listed by your other answers here, and a few more. Using renewable energy is more than just technology. Trying to overpower our situation, by buying devices like panels, and micro inverters, then adding them to the already mixed up grid does nothing to address our ignorance of how we live. It is more about our lifestyle. We are constantly making new devices to fix the problems of our old devices, then having to maintain or replace both of them in time, each one using more energy than having none in the first place. The first key to living a greener life is to reduce our usage of energy, and other things. It is much cheaper and easier to plug phantom loads like cell phone chargers and VCR's into a power strip, then turn off the strip when we are not using them, then to buy a solar panel and use it to power these idiotic loads in the first place.
About 12 years ago, we were looking into doing exactly what you're suggesting now. In the end, we bought one 50 watt panel, a couple golf cart batteries and started making our own 12 volt power. It originally ran our low voltage under cabinet lights in the kitchen. Then we added a 12 volt radio/CD player, and some 12 volt outlets in the other rooms for small electronics. We learned a lot, and were producing some of our own power we could use to offset out homes electric bill. The real bonus came when the power was off one day, but we still had lights and a radio running. Now our entire home is powered by a 1.4 kilowatt solar array and a 900 watt wind turbine. We use solar water batch preheaters for hot water, and a wood stove is our primary heat. Our electric bill last month was $6.55, about average for our home now. If you really want to accomplish something, get that panel, then do some research and learn how to use it to charge some inexpensive batteries, and start running your laptop off it. Later add some LED cabinet lights and stuff like that. It's more fun, educational, and really gets you into the process. Putting the panel and microinverter on the porch rail and plugging it in is like going camping at the Hilton. In the end the outdoor experience is not very fulfilling.
There are some great publications and websites you can check out, my personal favorite is Home Power Magazine. It's inexpensive, and really gets into the nuts and bolts of renewable energy. Several years ago they even ran an article on our little 12 volt home sized system. If you subscribe, you can use their search engine to look up specs and wiring diagrams on our system in their archived articles site, just look for, "Small System First." Do some homework, ask more questions, and get involved. Did you know there are over 100,000 homes and businesses in the US alone today that use solar power for at least part of their electric power? That's good news. The number is increasing each day because of people like you. Good luck Buick, and take care, Rudydoo
Where Can I Find Information About Green Cloths, Stuff That Help The Environment Also?
I Saw A Magazine Where It Talk About Products That Are Green, Good For The Environment Stuff That Gets Recycle And Doesnt Damage Our Planet, And I Also Want Information About How Can I Help. Thanks
You can change your lightbulbs to Compact Fluorescent bulbs (CFL's). They produce the same amount of light as a regular incandescent bulb, but using less than half the energy. They also last years instead of months.
There is an issue with mercury with them, but it is negligible. CFL's have only a TINY amount of mercury. Less than an old heating thermostat in a house. The problem arises when millions of CFL's are thrown into the landfills. 1 bulb is no big deal, millions cause a mercury problem.
The answer to that is, there are more and more places that are taking CFL's for recycling. I believe, if the sell them; they have to take them back for recycling. I have a bucket that I put them in and when it gets full, I take them to be recycled. My Ace hardware store in town has a big sign that they take burned out CFL's. But, I changed all the bulbs in my house out over 2 years ago and have yet to have one burn out.
I would also like to get solar panels or a wind generator so that I can cut my electric bill down even more.
You can start composting your garbage. All your vegetable waste, paper that is not shiny, cardboard, eggshells, all those can be composted. What you don't want to compost is any animal products like bones, meats, dairy, etc... If you don't have a yard, you can try Vermiculture, which is composting with worms. All you need is an 18 gallon container, like Rubbermaid or some other container, poke air holes in it and line it with soft screen material so the worms don't escape, and you can put your vegetable kitchen waste in there, also newspaper. It is a little more involved than that. You can look online under Vermiculture and you can find hundreds of sites that sell the worms, the starter bedding, full instructions, worm bins... Then when the worms have eaten all the garbage, the worm poop (called 'castings) are the BEST fertilizer for house plants.
Why Don'T The Just Put A Solar Panel On The Back Of The Next Ipad?
We Put A Solar Panel On A Calculator, Right? Why Can'T Apple Make The Back Of The Next Ipad A Solar Panel? Or Make A Separate Case With The Solar Panel On It. It Would Make Every Enviromentalist And Outdoorsman Love Apple, The Only Problem Is They Would Have To Sacrifice The Classic Look As Well As Risk It Overheating. But They Can Wok Around That Easily. It Would Pretty Much Let Them Take Complete Control Of The Mobile Device Market, People Wouldn'T Have To Charge Their Device Nearly As Often, And They Would Be Super Innovative By Doing That
As snow white mentions, it is extremely ineffective with current technology. For many reasons, first consider the fact that large solar panels on houses do not produce much energy at all, and those are much bigger than ipads. Additionally, you generally do not want electronics to hang around in the sun for too long as it can damage it. And its just impossible for the company to make any money if the next ipad will cost an extra $400. Good idea, just no way to implement it yet.
Anybody Living In Uk Use Solar Panels?
With The Cost Of Electricity Constantly Rising I'Ve Been Considering Getting Solar Panels.Any Advice On Cost And Maintenence Would Be Appreciated.I Really Want To Do My Homework On This And Not Go Straight To A Company And Pay Thousands Of £'S.E-Mail Me Direct If You Want On [email protected]
In the US, there are solar rigs sold for RVs for $500 that'll run an appliance. For a few thousand $ you can get something set up for the home, and that includes solar panels and home sized wind turbines. VERY kewl idea and a lot more efficient and cheap than we were led to believe.
At least your government isn't run by oil industry creeps.
