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.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Much Does It Cost To Get Solar Panels To Power A House?
About $10,000 to do a medium sized house. And then you have to make sacrifices to minimize electrical use.
Are Plug In Hybrid Vehicles Planning To Include A Solar Panel For Their Roof?
If A Solar Panel Could Be Carried In The Trunk Of A Vehicle And Was Placed On The Roof Once We Arrived At Our Sunny 20-40 Mile Destination And We Stayed There For Several Hours Or A Complete Work Day, It Seems It Could Be Locked In Place To Avoid Theft And Make At Least A Partial Charge For The Drive Home. If This Is Reasonable, What Would Be The Minimum Kw Panel Needed To Avoid Having To Use Any Fuel?
One is. Aptera is making an EV and plug-in hybrid which will have a solar panel on the roof.
Also the ZAP-X EV is supposed to have nano solar cells in its windows.
And the ZAP Xebra Xero has a solar panel on top.
And you can modify current hybrids to add a solar panel to the roof.
But I don't think the major auto companies (i.e. Chevy Volt) are planning on putting solar panels on their plug-ins.
How Much Does It Cost To Heat A Spa?
We Just Bought A House.. Came With A Hot Spring Spa (Envoy Model). We Just Got Our First Electric Bill In This New House $375! For One Month.. Mostly Electricity (1,400 Kwh Usage!). The House Is Larger That Our Old House, But Pretty Much Everything Else Is The Same. We Have A Second Refrigerator In The Garage, But Had That Before. About The Only Things Different Are The Hot Tub And The Greater Greater Square Footage. I Expected The Bill To Be Higher Than In Our Old Place, But I Did Not Expect It To Triple! I Even Had Turned The Spa To "Summer Mode" Were Is Shuts Off For 8 Hours A Day And We Only Keep It Set At 80 During The Week When We Don't Use It. The Hot Spring Dealer Claims We Should Be Able To Keep It Set At 104 24/7 And It Should Only Add About 30/ Month To Our Bill. Can Anybody Out There That Put In An Hot Tub Tell Me How Much Their Electricity Bills Increased?
They do use quite a bit of electricity. Some that I know who have them say their bills are high when left on and that's with a thermal cover over the top. Depending on what power the element you might try and see how long it takes to heat from cold and if you tend to use it later then turn it on. A solar panel could cut back on the time it takes to heat too.
I'm sure most who already have a spa tend to be a little lean on how much power they use and have never really done the test to be exact.
How Long Would It Take To Charge A Car Battery Using Solar Panels?
I Have 11 Mini Solar Panels I Harvested From Walkway Lights. All Together They Are Pulling 45Volts 23Ma. My Question Is How Long Would It Take To Charge A Car Battery So I Could Make A &Quot;Solar Generator&Quot; Using A 400 Watt Inverter. I Know A Deep Cycle Battery Would Be Better But I'M Trying To Keep This Cheap Since I Already Have A Battery To Work With.
Typically, you want to charge a car battery, or any lead-acid battery, at about 5% of capacity (C) at least. So if your car battery is rated at 100 Amp-hours, you would want to put at least 2 amps of current into it for slow charge. With the 23 mA you have now, it is unlikely that you could even keep up with the self-discharge rate of a car battery, and the battery would slowly lose energy, although at a much slower rate than if the battery were just standing alone.
What you could do is charge 10 NiCd batteries, maybe 11, then put those in series to power your inverter for a short time. By a short time, I mean perhaps 5 minutes before it goes off. NiMH batteries would not work as well, as they need pulse charging.
If Solar Panels Were Installed Throughout A Small Town How Much Money Would It Save?
Its A School Project And Its On Spanish Fort Alabama. It Dosnt Have To Be Accurate Just A Number That Sounds Reasonable.
As of 2007, the effective cost of solar power was 38 cents per kwh while the cost for coal power was 0.6 cents a kwh. They would not save any money at all, it would cost them much more for their energy needs unless they could get government subsidies and reduce their energy use.
