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 home owners to use the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, washing clothes, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are substantial, numerous home owners find that the benefit, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably minimize or even remove your electric bills
Whether you're a property owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can comprise a big part of your month-to-month expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your utility bills and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.
#2 Make an excellent return on your investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the finest ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity bill savings, the average American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the previous ten years, residential electrical energy rates have actually increased by an average of 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and secure versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a service or property owner with ever-changing cash flow, going solar also helps you better forecast and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home or business worth
Several studies have actually found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, need for properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key element of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price changes in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A common residential solar panel system will eliminate three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are essential components of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding companies that select to run responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of customer getting choices, developing goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.
#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 money down.
Lots of house owners opt to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility business are well-known for their varying and unreliable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate how much electricity will be produced, and most significantly, 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
- 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 Solar And Wind Power Are So Efficient, Why Didn'T Doc Brown Attach Panels And A Windmill To The Delorean?
Because solar and wind power is a bunch of crap, and the reason USA economy is bad is because obama wants it that way, a way he uses to destroy this great nation.
Obama Supports Drilling; In Brazil!
Barack Obama lied about supporting drilling in the US. He was running for the job of President and he said he supported drilling. At the time gas prices were unstable, and the economy was tanking and a young lady named Sarah Palin was a VP candidate with more energy experience in her little finger than Obama has in his entire body and she was firing people up with her chant of “drill baby, drill”.
Obama won the election and we have not begun drilling. We have a moratorium on drilling and Obama is in favor of that. He does not want us to drill for our own oil and while gas prices skyrocket he sits idly by watching. He wants our prices to go up and he wants us to feel the pain so that he and his cronies can manufacture a crisis so they can push cap and trade and alternative energy. Those technologies have not been developed to a degree they can provide enough energy to meet our needs but Obama has friends he needs to make wealthier. He is beholden to GE…
The Bush energy policy was opposed by Democrats who claim that somehow Bush and Cheney manipulated the price of oil because they are oil men and this helped their buddies. It is pure hogwash because oil is a global commodity and its price is affected by what is going on in the world. However, Obama can affect the polices regarding alternative energy by keeping us from using our own oil (which forces us to pay the higher prices).
Simply allowing us to drill and retrieve OUR oil would provide Americans with tens of thousands of desperately needed jobs and would allow us to use our own resources instead of paying someone else for theirs. But that is Obama’s plan.
He wants us to spend our money to help other countries develop their oil and retrieve it and then he wants them to sell it to us.
“We want to help you with the technology and support to develop these oil reserves safely. And when you’re ready to start selling, we want to be one of your best customers.” Investor’s
Yep, Obama is OK with the Brazilians drilling for their oil and he will even help them do so (with financial and technical aid) and then he will be overjoyed to buy that oil from them.
That Obama is one class act. I just want to know why he has no problem with the Brazilians drilling for their resources but refuses to allow us to do the same. Why? Either he is intent on shackling us to the whims of the market and the prices and production of oil producing countries or he has a real concern for our people. If the latter is the case then he must hold Brazilians in low regard. Are they not as important as humans as we are? No, I think he wants to cripple us to push his agenda.
So America, why is drilling good enough for the people of Brazil (and with the full support of Obama) but not for us?
He wants to destroy us and he is doing it little by little.
GE needs the “clean” energy business and Obama is working to give it to them…
Meanwhile, he is just giving us the business, like screwing America and trying to make us like it.
Now rejecting the Pipeline.
Alternative Energy ? First Thought Solar Panels. How Many Cheap, Handy And Flashy Forms Are There A.Energy?
Alternative Sounds Odd, Weirdy, Primitive..How About Running A Flashy Car On Cheap Spirit? And Having A Comfortable Home Heated Or Cooled Naturally By ??
hi Nischal, i'm interested in Alternative Energy. its not only Solar panels, it can also be wind generators, in India, Solar panels r being used to heat water, but not very efficiently, i'm keen on making small wind generators that will charge car batteries, n when there's no wind, the batteries will run small appliances like lights n fans, for starters.
about running cars on spirit, first, the process of making spirit should be easy n non-toxic. N second, You need an adequate n constant supply of it to be sure You don't get stuck when You r away from the spirit refill station.
let me know if You r interested in doin more research on Alternative n Free Energy, i do have a few sites.
All the best.
Solar To Heat The Water In Our House? Cost?
I'M Interested In Heating Our Water With Solar Energy. We Live In Virginia, And Have Direct Sun On Our Ranch Style Roof. How Much Would It Cost To Purchase The Technology And To Maintain Solar Panels Just To Heat Our Water?
Can't answer directly, as ROI will depend on how you can situate the solar panels and how much freezing weather you get -- a simple system that will handle hot water in summer but has to be drained in winter is cheap and easy. The ones involving heat exchangers that can be used in freezing weather are more complex and expensive.
Please Help With My Solar Energy Installation?
I Have A Few Volkswagen Solar Panels, Those That They Use To Keep The Batteries Charged.
I´M Planing To Use Them In Combination With A Car Battery And A Small Power Inverter With A Timer To Pump Water Only A Couple Of Minutes A Day To Water My Bonsais,
I Have The Panels, The Battery, The Timer, The Power Inverter And The Pump,
What Else Do I Need To Make It Work?
A Friend Told Me That I Have To Prevent The Energy From Going Back Or Something To Shut Off The Timer When The Batteries Are Charging. Thanks!
That's a tricky question.
You are going to need one or more diodes connected between the PV panels and the battery, to prevent it from discharging through the panels when the lights are out.
A single car battery typically has a charging current of about 0.8-1 amp, and needs a charging bias of about 2.3-2.5 volts over the top of the battery's voltage. I assume that since the originally intended purpose of your PV panels is for charging car batteries, that they are sized correctly in terms of voltage and current output.
The diode(s) is another matter. Here are the specifications you are going to want. I have added here an approximate fudge factor.
forward voltage : ~0.8v
reverse breakdown voltage: 30v
leakage current: micro-amp range
forward current: 2 amps. If you can't find diodes this large(unlikely), you can just connect enough in parallel to get the current capacity you want.
Another problem, is the fact that the inverter will draw a small to moderate amount of current whenever it is switched on, even if the pump is not on. I am not sure how to solve this problem besides just physically turning the inverter off when it is not being used. This kind of defeats the purpose of having an automatic system though....
Mark's idea of using a 12v dc pump and ignoring the battery and inverter altogether, is a good one.
You might want to talk to a bona fide electrical engineer in RL, and ask him what his opinion is. Electrical engineering is not my specialty......
Good luck with your project
Solar Panels And Fumigation?
I Live In San Diego, Near The Coast. It'S Regular To Get Your House Fumigated Every 10 Years, Recommended. But Are Solar Panels Okay With That?
Hey Spk, Ravi has some good points about tenting, but to answer your question directly, solar panels should not have any problem with tenting. They are made primarily of aluminium, acrylic and silicone, pretty inert rom a chemical standpoint. If tenting doesn't do damage to motherboards on computers and other electronics, then it won't bother the panels. Just make sure when the tenting is done that the panels are clear of debris, and appear clean.
Our home has been solar powered for over 10 years now, I've never had to clean them for any reason, except to brush snow off them in the winter once in a while. Like Ravi, my concerns about tenting are more environmental than electronic based. Good luck Spk, and take care, Rudydoo
