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 air conditioning system, cleaning clothes, seeing TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, many homeowners discover that the convenience, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically reduce or even eliminate your electric expenses
Whether you're a house owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can make up a big portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.
#2 Earn a great return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the finest ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy costs savings, the typical American house owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical energy costs have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect against unpredictable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're an organisation or house owner with fluctuating cash flow, going solar likewise assists you better projection and manage your costs.
#4 Increase your home or business value
Multiple studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher home worths and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, demand for properties geared up with photovoltaic 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 achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate variations in global 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 tasks in the country. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is an excellent way to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A typical property solar panel system will remove three to 4 heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are very important components of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that opt to operate properly. Services are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of consumer purchasing decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing business results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Lots of property owners decide to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
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 energy rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can determine just how much electrical power will be generated, and most notably, at exactly what price, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed 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

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
Anybody Knows The Price For A Solar - Pv And Thermal - System And The Price Of A Micro Wind Power System?
I'M Doing A Research Regarding The Installation Of A Fuel Cell Inside A House And I Want To Compare The Price Of This System With A Pv And Thermal Solar System And Also The Price Of A Micro Wind Power To Use In Residential Buildings. Prices Would Be Suitable In Installed Kw Or Kwh Of Energy...Source? Thanks
What should be a relatively straightforward answer, like it will cost you $14/watt for solar and $7/watt for wind power is not so easy in reality. There are "two" big challenges to understanding your PV and wind power system costs and power?
#1. POWER IS HARD TO FIGURE OUT. You buy these systems based on their "nameplate" value, but you actually care about their total power generation:
To explain: Each of these systems, Solar or Wind, will be "rated" by their power production peak capability. This "rating" is known as their nameplate value, and when purchasing a "90 watt" solar panel, and the 90 watts is the peak power this panel can produce on a sunny day at noon. Similarly, a 1kW (nameplate) wind turbine will be "rated" for the peak power it can generate in fairly high wind (typically 30 mph sustained).
If you are actually using these systems for power generation, the nameplate value is good to know for the total power you will need to handle in the system, but not wholly useful for determining it's power production. What you actually care about is watts/per year, not watts per BEST CASE SCENARIO.
To determine your yearly estimated watts per solar or wind is quite hard and depends on your sun and wind conditions where you live and how you install these. In general, a solar system with nameplate power of 3 kW will produce approximately 4000 kW/hrs per year in "good" sun (southern U.S.), and a 3kW wind turbine will produce approximately 6000 kW/hrs in "good" wind (Wind class 3 areas.) A wind class map can be found at AWEA.org.
#2. PRICE IS HARD TO FIGURE OUT. Even if you do some math, and figure out your power production for your system, there is not an easy "price" total for either of these. Solar panels need installation, DC-AC inverters, grid-connection systems and/or battery systems. Wind systems also need installation, including potentially costly foundation and tower work if you want to get the turbine up into stronger winds, inverters, grid-connection and batteries etc. It is not atypical in EITHER solar or wind for the installed costs to double or triple the purchase of the panels or turbines themselves.
What you wanted to know was which to buy, the answer is: if it's really sunny and not windy, use solar, if it's windy (branches offer flutter on your trees), think about wind.
Have You Seen On Tv What They Call A Solar Generator,The &Quot;Solar Back-Up&Quot;? Is It To Be Believed?
My Neighbor Bought One,And He Actually Thought He Could Power His House From It...I Told Him Not To,But He Looked At Me As If I Were Retarded...He Spent All That Money On A Glorified 24 Volt Battery,And It Will Not Run Anything Bigger Than A Tv For More Than An Hour...No A/C,No Fridge,No Light For More Than A Couple Of Hours...That If Its An Led Light....If You Are Thinking Of Buying One,Do Not Expect More Than A Couple Of Car Battery'S Worth Of Electricity...
This is just an example of people not understanding what they are buying and falling for false advertising. The product is fine for what it is supposed to do, provide a little backup power. It has a 90W solar panel, 1800W inverter, and 51ah battery. It should cost around $1000. It is big enough to run a few small appliances, or some lights. If someone thinks it is going to backup their entire house, shame on them for not looking into it better. Shame on the company for overselling it, I saw an ad on the web, totally deceptive.
My friend bought the rotating dog nail clipper as seen on TV. It didn't work for her dog, scared the crap out of him. Does that mean that no dog nail trimmers work? No, just the piece of crap she bought on TV. Don't throw out the baby with the (solar heated) bathwater.
Solar Panels And Radiation Utilization?
I Went To Pv Watts And Found Out That During The Summer Months, My Site’S Solar Panels Will Accumulate Roughly 7 Hours Of Radiation Each Day. But Since I Am On A Time Of Use Plan (Mid-Rate In The Morning And High-Rate In The Afternoon) How Should I Differentiate The Hours For Each Phase For My Summer Month Calculations? 3 Hours Of Radiation In The Morning And 4 In The Afternoon? Is There A Utilization Rate For The Morning And Afternoon (Ie: Working At 25% Until 10 Am Then 75% Until Noon And 100% Until 5 Pm)?
I'm afraid that I don't have those boundaries on my energy usage (plenty of energy here...), so I can't give you a precise answer.
I don't now what a PV Watts is, and I don't understand time use of solar panels... however, my brother works with SDG&E/Sempra Energy (I can never remember which one exactly), and I'm sure that if you were to call someone at your local utility, they can give you at least some guidelines to follow for most efficient use of your time.
Good luck to you.
Why Do People Consider Solar Panels A Bad Investment...?
They Pay For Themselves In 5-10 Years, And Last For 20+.
Even If It Is 10 Years, Then That Is The Equivalent To A 7.2% Compounding Interest Bank Account
stupidly, I have solar panels and they are a good investment
If I Ll Connect Together 3 Solar Panels, With Output 12V 5W Each, What Output I Ll Have From All Of Them Connected Together?
I Need 36V And 1670Mah. Thanks!
Numa, a 12 volt solar panel generally has an "open circuit voltage" of 18 volts or so. You should be able to find this number on the data plate on the back of the panel, labeled Voc. It should have an Imax rating as well, I would guess it would be around .3 amps, or 300 Ma. Mah is Milliamphours, which is a measure of battery storage. If you are trying to charge a 1670 Mah battery, and your panel puts out 300 Ma, you just need to leave it in the sun for 6 hours or so, and you can bring a totally discharged battery back to full.
By connecting them in parallel, you will still have the same 12 volt output, with about 900 Ma, or three times whatever the Imax rating is. If you connect them in series, you will step the voltage up, to three times whatever the Voc rating is, probably around 55 volts, which is correct for charging a 36 volt battery bank, but the amperage will still be around .3, or 300 Ma.
It is also possible to overcharge a battery with small panels like this, if your 1670 Mah battery is only discharged half way, and you put the panels in the sun for 6 hours, it might run the voltage up too high on the battery without some kind of voltage limiter. What I would suggest is hooking 2 panels in series, and see if they charge the battery, they might have enough voltage to do that without the third panel. Good luck, and take care, Rudydoo
