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, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, numerous home owners find that the benefit, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy expense cost savings, the average American house owner settles their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus increasing energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the past ten years, residential electricity costs have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and safeguard versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're a business or house owner with ever-changing cash circulation, going solar likewise helps you better projection and handle your expenses.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key element of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation.

Many property owners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The utility companies are notorious for their changing and undependable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can calculate just how much electrical energy will be produced, and most notably, at exactly what rate, for at least the next 20 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
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
Solar Panels At School..How Can They Help?
How Can Solar Panels Improve The School Environment?
Get off the grid, then the Coal Burning electric company makes less pollution.
Little Solar Panel Question?
I Have A Mini 3 Led Mini Torch Light That Is Powered By A Battery Charged By A Tiny 9 Cell Solar Panel. Can I Remove The Little Button Battery And Connect It To A 3.6V Old Cell Phone Battery, Would It Charge The Cell Phone Battery Instead Of The Button Battery?
Considering how small the panel is,
it probably wouldn't do any good at all for a phone battery.
As for the idea of using solar energy to charge a cell phone:
There is always a good reason why an accessory
isn't offered for a particular item, such as a cell phone.
The most common reason is that it wouldn't work.
Price And Energy Production Of Solar Panels?
I Have Been Thinking About Getting Solar Panels For My House. What Do You Think I Should Get? Companies? Prices?
I Also Have Another Question. How Much Energy Can A Small Solar Panel Produce?
A small panel will not produce much power. When people put solar electric panels on their house with the goal of saving money, they generally put up a lot of large panels - 200 or 500 square feet worth. Its hard to save money with just one panel.
The only way to get close on how much it will cost and whether that represents a savings is to get out your electric bills for the past year, and call a local solar installer for a quote. The system on our house cost $20,000 and we got back $8,000 in incentives, so $12,000 net. It can save money, but that will be over many, many years.
How To Connect Solar Panels To Batteries?
I Have Two Solar Panels That Were Going To Be Trashed At Work. I Want To Use Them To Charge Batteries On My Rv But I Noticed They Put Out Around 20 Volts In Direct Sunlight. So I Am Wondering:
-Isn'T This Way Too Much Voltage For A 12 Volt System?
-Do A Need Some Sort Of A Regulator Connected To Keep Them From Overcharging?
20 volts is a common open-circuit voltage for nominal 12v panels. The panels put out about 15v at full load. If the panel puts out little enough that it takes 20 hours or more to put a full charge in the battery you can get by without a charge controller - just keep the cells topped up with distilled water. A charge controller will do a more efficient job, though. The most efficient charge controllers use what's called Maximum Power Point Technology (MPPT) which lets the panels operate at their most efficient point throughout the battery's charging cycle. Available on E-bay. The charge controller should have the same or higher wattage as the panels it controls - if you're not sure of wattage, assume that they are the same as similar area panels you find for sale.
Before buying a charge controller, connect the panels through an ammeter to a discharged battery. They may have been trashed because of damage and low output. You need at least an amp for trickle charge, 5 amps for reasonable recharge times.
Should The Uk Be Proud Of It'S Carbon Emission Levels?
We Make Practically Nothing In The Uk Any More, We Used To Churn Out All Manor Of Goods, But The Manufacturing Industry Was Destroyed By The Tories And By Way Of Making It Look Better They Crow About How Carbon Neutral We Have Become.
Yet Now All The Stuff We Made Before Is Made In China, Who Don'T Care How Much Crap They Shove Into The Air, And Having Made The Goods In A Far Less Green Way Than We Did, The Carbon Is Added To Because We Have To Ship Or Fly It Across The World To Get To Our Shops.
So Should We Be Proud Of The Carbon, Or Admit We Have Been Mugged Off.
You've been had. You guys will really be in trouble if a cold winter sets in. Your windmills and solar panels will not make a dent in the demand for fuel. You will wish you had all those decommissioned coal plants back in action.
The socialists and greenies risk rendering you the next Spain.
