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 daily life: running your air conditioner, washing clothing, viewing TELEVISION, 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 considerable, many homeowners find that the benefit, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly minimize and even eliminate your electric bills
Whether you're a house owner, business, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can comprise a big portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your energy costs and you'll still conserve a lot of money.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy expense savings, the typical American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against increasing energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical energy costs have actually gone up by approximately three percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a service or property owner with ever-changing capital, going solar also assists you much better forecast and manage your costs.
#4 Increase your residential or commercial property worth
Multiple research studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for homes equipped 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 crucial component of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a great way to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A normal property solar panel system will remove three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are essential elements of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that decide to run responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of consumer buying decisions, developing goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Many homeowners opt to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- 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 Financial investment
The utility companies are notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electrical energy rates. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and simple math, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical energy will be produced, and most notably, at what cost, for a minimum of 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
How To Calculate Btu Of Oil Furnace Vs Passive Solar?
I Want To Figure Out What Type Of Passive Solar System I Would Need To Replace A Oil Furnace That Used 1000 Gallons Of Oil Last Year. My Passive Solar Sysment Of Choice Is That Thermo-Siphon Solar Systems, The Type That Can Be Built Using From Supplies Form A Hardware Store. But I Would Also Consider Want Ever Works, Such As Thermal Mass, And Solar Hearth.
Fuel oil produces about 138,700 BTU per gallon x 1000 gallons x 80% efficiency = 110,960,000 useful BTU cranked out,
Most of that probably at night when temps are at their lowest, which is why it is so difficult to make up the heat required with passive solar.
You have to have a way to store the solar energy that you capture during the day for use at night and when it is cloudy and storming during those days.
Not an easy thing to do.
I Wanna Run My House With Solar Energy.?
I Have 21&Quot; Tv, Dvd, Laptop, Dstv Satelite Dish And Decoder, Refrigerator (Dc) 3 Flourecent Bulbs And A Simple Fan.
Additional Info - I Can Get 9 Hrs Of Good Sunlight Per Day Most Of The Year.
Check your electric bill. It most likely gives the kw-hr usage (by month) for the past 12 months which will allow you to figure out what capacity ( kw=kw-hr/hr) you need from the solar panels during the sunlight hours. If you wish to extend operation for 9 hours beyond sunlight you will need a hefty storage battery and twice the capacity from the solar panels.
I Want To Power My Low Energy Room With Solar Panels That I Can Make Myself To Get This Room Off The Grid?
Hi Guys, I Need Some Help, I Got A Small Room That I Wanna Power Up By Solar Panel That I Can Make, I Want To See If I Can Do It
In My Room:
Two Laptop: Requires Dc 19.5V Which Uses A Charger Ac 19.5
Two Wired Mouses: 5V 100Ma
Clock: Dc 4.5V
Fan: 120V 60Hz 0.8Amps Ac Only
Home Telephone: Dc 9V 400Ma
Light Bulb: Helical 26W 120Vac 60Hz 390Ma
Can I Make A Affordable Solar Panel To Keep My Little Room Off Grid??
Thank You Guys Please Show Me Anything Links, Answers, Criticize Me Any Info
This looks like about 300W of loads, similar to a small cabin. I'm going to assume the fan runs pretty much all day long, and the laptops, maybe 4 hours, and the light, 8 hours. We end up with about a 3-4 kWh / day requirement. That's an 800W array in a place like southern California, Nevada, or Arizona, considering losses including battery charging and inverter. $4-5k, assuming you do the work yourself. And it's a pain to maintain batteries.
It's hard to make a system this size pay for itself, if grid power is already available. But it could be a cool thing to do.
Where Can I Find Pathway Solar Lighting That Doesn'T Require Re-Chargeable Batteries?
I Don'T Want To Have To Worry About Batteries Period.....To Me That'S What True &Quot;Solar&Quot; Power Is,
But I Can'T Seem To Find Any Solar Light Stakes Without A Battery Being Required.
Any Specific Store Or Brand Suggestions?
How are you going to store the energy produced by the photovoltaic cell?
You can remove the batteries from the lights. Tape over the photo eye so the lights will think it is dark.
They will work great all day long as long as the sun is up.
