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 utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c, washing clothes, watching 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, lots of property owners find that the benefit, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Leading Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly decrease or even eliminate your electrical bills
Whether you're a property owner, service, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a big portion of your monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power bill savings, the average American property owner settles their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the past ten years, residential electrical energy rates have actually gone up by an average of three percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a service or house owner with fluctuating capital, going solar also assists you better forecast and manage your costs.
#4 Boost your house value
Several research studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties geared up 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 crucial part of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a great way to lower 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 normal domestic photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are very important components of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that decide to operate responsibly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of consumer purchasing decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing company results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Many property owners select to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electricity-- 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 Investment
The energy companies are infamous for their varying and unreliable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can determine just how much electricity will be created, and most importantly, 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
Solar Parabolic Dish Collector For Heating The Water Almost Every Day. Take A Look?
So, I Know You Can'T Heat Your House To Efficient In Winter With This System, But I'M Pretty Sure You Can Heat Your Water For Bath, Kitchen Or For A Pool. And If You Add This System At A Central Heating System, Or A Heat Generator I'M Pretty Sure You Can Reduce Your Heating Cost. Check Http://Www.Lamp-Bulbs.Com For More Details. What Do You Think? Is It Relevant Or Not?
I know that I built a solar panel system from scratch in North Wales, costing me just £50 in total. Okay, I did use some old plumbing parts such as a water storage tank, kindly donated off a plumber, but for 3/4 of the year, there was ample water for two people to take showers. The great thing was, that although the U.k> sees very little sun, the system worked.
I do think that solar water systems can be adapted to work in conjunction with geothermal water heating, and in doing so, totally eliminate any need for external heat sources for heating water.
On the parabolic dish however, although I have never tried it, I think there are much more efficient ways to heat water, as using a dish, you would only be heating a small amount of water at at time, whereas a tubed panel for instance, heats a greater amount of water than a dish could, and in all likely-hood, to the same or higher temperature too.
If you had the space, and you wanted to use the parabolic method, I would suggest using a parabolic trough instead of a dish, as the amount of water heated could be greatly increased. If you did decide to do this, think about surrounding your pipe which is to contain the water with a vacuum sealed glass tube, as this will increase your heat potential.
You could even make your own troughs, by cutting oil drums in half and lining them with a reflective foil.

Do Solar Panels Shine/Have Luster? Please Help Me. Easy Ten Points!?
Okay So I Want To Know If Solar Panels Shine.
------(My Q'S About Blindness Doesn'T Mean Permanent Omg I Can'T See! Blind But That We Just Can&Quot;T See At The Moment Because Of The Light.)-----------------------------
-Like If/When They Face The Sun Is There A Glare To The People Around?
-If There Is Would The Person Have To Look Directly At It?
-Could It Reflect Off Of Other Objects And Cause Temporary Blindness Or Just Shine Light In Person'S Eyes?
-If There Were Windows And Mirrors Near The Solar Panel Would It Affect A Person'S Sight?
-And If It Did For How Long Would It Hurt Or Take Affect?
-And Is This Physics? Like-Solar Panels And How They Work Is That Physics Or Some Other Category?
Solar panels reflect less sun than a piece of window glass, and people aren't harmed by the sun's reflection off windows.
Also, solar panels tend to be tilted more or less directly toward the sun, so the light that they reflect is back at the sun, not down into the street or yard where people are.
Those huge "power tower" concentrating solar thermal plants have a brilliant light reflected off the boiler. But those are put out in the desert, away from people.
How Much Solar Energy Is Used Worldwide?
I Would Prefer For The Answer To Come From Howstuffworks Or Brainpop. However, If The Answer Can'T Be Found On Those Websites, It Will Be Okay To Use Other Sources.
World Solar Power Topped 100,000 Megawatts in 2012.
That is still less than 1% of all electric power in the world, but look how that graph is trending up. I extrapolated that if it keeps that up we could end up with 100% of electricity being solar in less than 15 years. Of source it won't keep trending up that much, but I can easily see it being 20% of world total in 10 years.
Run A Air Conditioner Off 6V 200 Ahsbatteries?
I Have 5 100 Watt Solar Panels And 6 6V 200 Amp Hr Batteries . I Want To Run A 5 To 8000 Btu Air Conditioner
I presume you have a charge controller. Otherwise, you can't connect the 12v solar panels to charge 6v batteries - overcharging and battery damage will result. But presuming you have addressed that issue, I presume your 8000 BTU AC is a 120vac model. That will require about 7 amps = 840 watts. To get 840 watts out of 6v batteries, you'll have to draw about 140 amps. Since inverters are about 85% efficient, you'll have to plan on 165 amps from the bank of batteries. With 6 batteries, each will provide 28 amps. You might get 6 hrs of AC. A 5000 BTU AC will reduce the power requirements by about 33%.
Most battery solar systems are based upon 12v batteries. You can still go that route by connecting two batteries in series, then connect each of those pairs in parallel with each other. That will reduce the current requirements on the battery bank to about 80 amps. No change in the operational capabilities. You can get by with lighter gauge wire.
Where Can I Find Info On How Much Money The Federal Govt Spent On Using Solar Energy Tech. For Fed. Buildings?
Would Like To Know How Much $ Is Reserved/Set Aside By Fed Govt To Use Solar Energy Tech For Some Federal Buildings - Also How Much Money Is Being Spent By Fed Govt On Using Non-Solar Air Conditioning Technology (Traditional A/C Technology)
That is going to take some digging with google. Using strings like "u.s. government solar energy use" you will turn up links like:
So the information is out there, but it appears there is a not a single compendium site that lists all federal solar energy uses. Therefore, it will be a Project to assemble it.
