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 house owners to use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are substantial, many homeowners find that the convenience, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically decrease or even eliminate your electrical costs
Whether you're a house owner, business, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can make up a large part of your month-to-month costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your utility costs and you'll still conserve a lot of money.
#2 Make a terrific return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity costs 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 Safeguard versus rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, residential electrical power costs have increased by an average of three percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unforeseeable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a company or house owner with ever-changing money flow, going solar likewise assists you much better projection and handle your expenses.
#4 Boost your home value
Numerous studies have found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher home values and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, demand for homes geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development 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 factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a terrific way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A common residential photovoltaic panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are essential parts of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that decide to run responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of customer getting choices, developing goodwill and improving service outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Numerous property owners pick to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
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 business are well-known for their varying and undependable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and easy math, we can determine what does it cost? electricity will be created, and most significantly, at what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).
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
Is Solar Power A Viable Source Of Energy? Is It Renewable?
Let'S Say Almost All The &Quot;Free&Quot; Energies Like Coal And Oil And Nuclear Dried Up Tomorrow. Would We Be Able To Make Solar Panels From The Energy We Have Incoming, And Produce An Net Gain Of Energy Coming In?
Is solar power a viable source of energy? Without coal and oil and nuclear we would be in real trouble. All that would be left is hydro, wind, wood and solar. Modern agriculture depends on fertilizer. World trade depends on oil to power our ships. Billions of people would die if we suddenly lost coal and oil and nuclear. Sure solar would be viable when all the cheaper sources of energy are taken off the table.
How Many Hours Of Direst Sunlight Would It Take For A 5Watt Solar Panel To Charge A 18Ah Battery?
A certain amount of information is missing - the voltage of the battery and the voltage of the cell, and then the capacity of the battery. Example: If the battery will put out 18 amps for one hour at 12V, that is 216 watts for one hour.
Most solar panels are rated in peak watts per hour at full sun.
So, let's make some basic assumptions as follows:
a) the charging is 100% efficient.
b) The voltages are compatible, and nominally 12V.
c) The battery discharges only to 20%, not 100% (usually a full discharge will damage a lead-acid battery, as well as some other configurations)
So, 80% of 216 watts is ~173 watts.
173 watts/5 watts per hour = 34.56 hours AT DIRECT SUNLIGHT.
Unless you are at the equator, and/or use a tracker, direct sunlight is about 2.5 hours per day. So, nearly 14 days.
Solar Panels And Supplementing Your Ac Power Source.?
Ok So How Do These Solar Panels Supplement The Ac From The Grid? Like Do They Invert The Output Of The Solar Panels And Sync Two Ac Sources Together? If So How And With What? Or Do They Convert The Ac From The Grid To Dc And Then Supplement And Then Invert It? If So How And With What? Thanks
The answer to your question is an "inverter." Solar panels produce DC electricity, so the inverter is like a transformer; it converts the DC to AC so that your house can use it the power. The inverter is connected to your meter which is where your house is connected to the grid. For this particular type of application, you would use a "grid-tied inverter." This type allows seamless use from the grid or the solar panels. At night, your house will pull from the grid. During the day, the inverter will power your house from the panels.
Usually you produce so much from the panels during the day that your meter will spin backwards and send electricity back to the grid (to your neighbors, essentially). If your installer has sized your system correctly, your meter will spin far enough backwards during the day that it will spin forward the same amount at night, with a net use of ZERO electricity from the grid.
Here is some more information about inverters:

Are Solar Panels Actually Efficient?
I Know What They Do And How They Work, But At This Point They're Expensive, Don't Always Produce Enough Electricity As Needed, And Can't Be Used When There's No Sun, As In Half The Day. Wouldn't Wind Power Seem So More Efficient? Or If They Do Use Solar Panels, How About Putting Them In The Desert. But I Really Believe That Research Money Should Go To Fusion Generators Since That's The Future And The Answer To Our Problems. Which Is Best In Your Opinion?
There is not a yes or no answer. But for the majority of the population it is a definite no. Because the energy needed to make a solar panel is more than the energy that a solar panel can return in its life time.
so No for cities and urbanized areas because there is already existing infrastructure therefore you'll be wasting more energy getting them installed. And it is better and more efficient to have the more common energy sources for populated areas.
However that being said it would be more efficient if you live in a remote area as it would not be worth it to build a huge electricity grid just to power one small house in the middle of no where.
Is This A Good Solar System Set Up?
Her Is A List I Put Togeather On Amazon. I Want 4 100W Panels And 4 Of The $60 Batteries. I Don'T Want To Buy The $200 If I Don'T Have To
I think, it is good. A 200 watt MPPT system produces the same amount of power a 300 watt panel with PWM. With PWM controllers you have to use expensive battery type solar panels which are roughly twice as much as Grid Tied Panels. Also 200 watt Grid Tied Panel with a 20 amp MPPT controller will cost you around $450 and 300 watt battery panel with 15 amp PWM controller is going to cost around $650.
