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 air conditioner, washing clothing, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are significant, many home owners find that the convenience, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably decrease or perhaps remove your electric bills
Whether you're a homeowner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can comprise a big portion of your regular monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce free 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 minimize your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.
#2 Make a great return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the finest ways to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity expense savings, the typical American house 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 costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, domestic electricity prices have actually increased by approximately 3 percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard versus unpredictable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a service or homeowner with fluctuating money flow, going solar also assists you much better forecast and manage your costs.
#4 Boost your home or business value
Numerous studies have actually discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, need for homes equipped 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 key component of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate changes in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is an excellent way to minimize 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 get rid of 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are essential parts of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that choose to run properly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of customer buying choices, creating goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving 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 cash down.
Numerous house owners opt to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar supplier for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The energy companies are well-known for their changing and unreliable electrical power rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and easy math, we can calculate what does it cost? electricity will be produced, and most notably, at exactly what cost, 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

Frequently Asked Questions
Why Choose A Solar Powered Water Feature?
I'M Looking To See The Advantages Of A Solar Powered Water Feature Compared To A Normal Mains Powered One.
What Are The Differences And Are There Any Real Benefits?
Instead of an electricity supply, solar powered water features use photo-voltaic panels to generate low-voltage electricity from the sun’s rays. The power generated should be enough to power a pump for a waterfall or a self-contained feature.
Solar-powered water features allow you to place a water feature anywhere in your garden or yard or even on your balcony, as long as the solar panels can be positioned to catch the sunlight.
The solar panel can either be incorporated into the water feature itself or have a separate, remote panel which is connected by a wire and can be fastened to a wall or fence to allow for best positioning in the sunlight.
A solar-powered fountain in a bird bath is a great way to attract birds to your garden and gives them clean drinking water and a place to splash about though you will need to add fresh water regularly.
A useful safety feature to look out for is cut-off switch that will turn the pump off if all the water in the reservoir evaporates or escapes due to a leak.
Solar-powered water features are generally quick and easy to install and provide an environmentally friendly way improve your outdoor living space.
How Solar Panel Works ?
How Does Solar Panel Make Electricity ?
when sunlight hits a solar panel the photons from the light hit a layer in panel that converts it into electrons through conduction, thus making electricity
Which Is The Best Stock In The Solar Industries ?
For Investments In Solar Stocks Which Are The Best In The World ?
Hands Down the best solar company is the world is First Solar (FSLR), they have projects all over the world in many different counties including a new large Solar Panel Project in China. Also, another company that is a good solar company is Suntech Power (STP). Hope that helps.
New Building Codes To Promote Solar Panel Installation On Private Homes?
Yes? Might be a good idea. But at some point the local power company is going to be in trouble because they're expected to supply power when your solar panel isn't working - and then BUY excess power from the solar collector.
And at some point, the power company will go out of business...... So this issue will have be addressed.
Also........... you know that any day, any year, now there's going to be a breakthrough in solar collectors. So if you put a boatload of money into solar collectors and then three weeks later they invent one which gathers 5 times more power, you're going to cuss yourself for having jumped the gun. This is why a lot of people hold off getting these things. There's a LOT of inventions yet to come in this field. Right now solar collectors aren't that efficient.
Why Solar Panel Are So Expensive?, Low Demand?
In 1960 The Production Cost Of Ic (Integrated Circuits) Was $1000/Ic, Now The Cost Are Cents Or Less Because The High Demand And The Improvement Of The Production Process. At That Time The Only Demand For Ics Was Military And Space Programs.
Are There People Interested In Not Promoting The Demand And/Or Production Improvement Of Solar Panels (Oil, Car Companies) Or It Is Only A Technological Issue?
In 1960, $1000 may not even have bought 1 watt of solar cells, but today, 1 watt (a fraction of a cell) costs about $4. So prices have come down.
The difference between solar panels and IC's are that solar panels have a lot of raw material, and IC's have very little. The material cost (not counting processing) of an IC may be just a few cents, but a solar panel has a significant amount of silicon, not to mention an aluminum frame, and hermetically sealed low-iron glass. So a solar panel can never be 25 cents, any more than a double-pane glass window can be 25 cents.
That said, I think panel prices will drop some 20-25 percent in 2009.
