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 homeowner to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning system, cleaning clothing, seeing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, many home owners find that the convenience, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably lower or even eliminate your electrical costs
Whether you're a homeowner, business, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can make up a large portion of your 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 costs and you'll still conserve a lot of money.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity bill savings, the average American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical energy costs have actually increased by approximately three percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and safeguard versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a business or homeowner with changing cash circulation, going solar also assists you much better forecast and manage your expenses.
#4 Increase your residential or commercial property worth
Numerous studies have actually discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, need for homes geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate changes in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks 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. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a great way to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will eliminate 3 to four heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are important parts of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that decide to operate properly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of consumer buying choices, developing goodwill and improving 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 loan down.
Lots of house owners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
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 well-known for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can compute how much electricity will be produced, and most notably, at what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty 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
Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)
- We own the solar panel system

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
We Took On Debt And Inflation To.... Still Keep This Economic Malaise?
Point Blank We Spent And Printed A Lot Of Money Incurring Debt And Inflation With The Purpose To Spur Economic Activity Sooner Than What Keynesian Thought Would Occur Naturally And Pay It Back In Good Times. Thus Keynesians Would Say That While Debt/Inflation Are Not Positive Items, The Benefit Of A Growing Economy Outweighs The Cost Of Inflation/Debt.
We Have Incurred Debt With A High Interest Rate, Our Money Is Worth Less Than Before (Making Everything Else More Expensive) And Considering That The Downfall Started In 06/07, We Are 6/5 Years Into This And The Future Still Doesn'T Look To Be Booming.
I Don'T Doubt That The Spending Strategies (Bailouts And Stimulus) Delayed These Events, But It Certainty Did Not Avert It.. A Sharp And Quick Pinch Would Have Been More Feasible Doing Nothing Than Incurring All This Debt/Inflation And Still Failing. Under The Do Nothing Plan We Would Have Gone Into A Savings Mode To Fix The Discrepancy Between Saving And Spending, We Would Still Have Gone Though An Economic Malaise During The Process, But Those Events Bottom Out And Bounce Up Quicker Than Keynesian Models Which Place All Emphasis On Flatting Out The Business Cycle.
Before The Recession If We Told People That The World Economy Is Going To Stall For 7-10(Higher?) Years They Would Look At You As If You Were Crazy Due To The A/Historical Nature Of Such An Event.
In Short I'M Tired Of The Keynesian Monopoly On The Economy, Keynesian Policies Have Delayed Events, Which Might Make It Politically Advantageous, But It Certainly Isn'T Showing Long Term Growth That Justifies The Costs They Generated.
Any Thoughts Or Opinions On The Topic?
Warning! If you have a below-average IQ, DO NOT READ ALL THE DETAILS BELOW! It should not be attempted without a full grammar school education. You may get a terrible headache!
Inflation is caused by an excessively high ratio of the nation’s supply of money to its supply of goods. The federal government can minimize the supply of money with its taxing powers and maximize the production of goods with its computer keyboards. Prosperity requires only a wise President, a consenting Congress, and an educated electorate. Unfortunately, we lack all three.
During World War II, the federal government minimized the supply of money by selling war bonds and high taxes. It maximized the supply of goods by printing contracts. WW II productivity was not a miracle; it was simply the result of full employment. The unemployment rate was less than 1% and Inflation was not rampant. The debt-to-GDP ratio was twice today’s ratio but the war debt was never “paid off”. Due to post-war economic growth, it remains an insignificant portion of our annual debt interest expense.
Today, unlimited funds can be created with computer keyboards and spent usefully on the infrastructure we will need to stay ahead of China in the coming century. More than an economic issue, this is a matter of national defense. Just as industry found it unprofitable to build the Interstate Highway System, government must again finance new infrastructure. It works for China. Why not for us?
For security, we will need a smart grid and a nationwide, underground power and communication network. For energy independence, we will need homes with near-perfect insulation, solar panels, and geothermal wells. To battery-power our entire automobile fleet, we will need dozens of safe, thorium-based nuclear power plants. And to eliminate the long-haul truck and air traffic that uses a major portion of our energy and our highway and airport maintenance expense, we will need a network of low friction, energy-saving, maglev freight and passenger trains zipping through low-pressure tubes at jet speed.
Most of all, we must provide free apprenticeship and college education for all the youth that can absorb it. Just as we do not expect children to pay for K-12 education, we must also provide them with tuition, supplies, and housing while they earn their diplomas and degrees. That would be our best investment, as it is for all the other advanced and developing nations.
At the same time, we can provide Medicare for everyone and pay for Social Security retirement at an age commensurate with our need for a labor supply. Free education and full employment will provide the required supply of doctors, nurses, and medical infrastructure.
Will taxes pay for all that? No! We don’t need taxes to pay for government expenditures. We have keyboards. There are only two reasons for taxation. (1) To control inflation, the income of the bottom 99% should be progressively taxed enough to keep the unemployment rate over 2%. (2) To prevent the bribery of Congress, the income and the estates of the top 1% should be progressively taxed enough to prevent the purchase of Congressional votes. Wealth is power and inherited wealth is inherited power: aristocracy. It is the exact opposite of democracy and meritocracy. Let’s end this betrayal of our Founding Liberals. Enrich the middle class so that it can also invest!
What will pay for all that? Keyboards! Deficits don’t matter. All that matters is GDP, which is maximized by full employment of available resources, including labor. Since productivity increases with infrastructure, the government can maximize GDP by hiring idle resources to build infrastructure. When they are put to work with computer keyboards, the labor of twenty million jobless will annually turn a $500B relief cost into a $2T infrastructure benefit.
What about the value of the dollar? Relative to a foreign currency, its strength depends upon our productivity relative to that of the foreign nation. To maximize productivity, we need full employment to rapidly build the world’s best infrastructure. Our military strength depends upon our domestic industrial base. Productivity cannot be out-sourced. There is no alternative to a policy of full employment. A small government is the road to serfdom.
What about the debt? The world is begging us to keep their money safe at a negative real (inflation-adjusted) interest rate. As a service to the market, we should sell bonds at an interest rate slightly higher than the normal inflation rate, ideally 2%. There is no reason to pay more. We don’t need the bond-holders. We have keyboards.

What Do I Need For Solar Panels To Power A 15Kw 3Phase Motor?
I Know How Many Panels But There Are Things Called Inverters , Are These Expensive And Can It Be Done
15 kW is small for a 3-phase inverter. I've seen inverters as small as 30 kW, but no smaller for 3-phase. Here is a sample http://www.pvpowered.com/inverter-pvp75k... . 3-phase equipment is serious business, and yes, will be costly. When you see someone put solar electric on their house, that's always a single-phase inverter.
A 15 kW array will be 1000 to 1500 square feet. That's big, but not outrageous. Some of the churches and large houses in my area have arrays on the order of 10 kW, and those manage to fit on the rooftops.
If what you had in mind was a portable or job-site application, maybe what you really want is a diesel generator, or to power your tool directly with a gasoline engine.
How To Mount Solar Panel To Car.?
I'M Looking To Mount A Solar Panel To The Top Of My 2003 Pontiac Montana And Was Wondering How I Could Do It Without Any Screws? Magnets Maybe? Also, How Would I Want To Wire It To A Battery To Avoid Any Problems? Here Is The Panel I Am Looking To Get: Http://Www.Amazon.Com/Instapark%C2%Ae-Black-Mono-Crystalline-Charge-Controller/Dp/B005lr9iog/Ref=Pd_Sim_Lg_1
I Will Be Using It To Charge A Separate 12V Battery In My Car.
In whichever car I'm not using much, I plug in a small solar panel to the cigar lighter socket, and simply place it up on the dashboard. So long as it gets daylight, it's working, it doesn't need full, direct sun. I just slip it between the transmission-tunnel and passenger seat when I get in, and my cars start right on the first turn of the key. It only delivers a very low level of charge, but it's STILL a net-gain, rather than the battery slowly getting a little tired - even the clock in the car, and the armed alarm-system takes SOME current to run, but even the smallest of panels will sort this out for you.
Why Didn'T Japan Make Their Nuclear Plants Tsunami-Proof?
Why Does Japan Even Use So Much Nuclear Power, When The Entire Country Is Susceptible To Earthquakes? A Lot Of The Nuclear Plants Are Located Near The Ocean (As They Need Large Bodies Of Water), So Why Didn'T They Make The Plants Tsunami Proof, In Addition To Earthquake Proof? As Most Of The Damage Came From The Tsunamis. That Seems Pretty Stupid, If You Ask Me. I Thought The Japanese Were Supposed To Be Very Intelligent.
I Hope All This Increases Investments In Other Alternative Energy Sources, Like Solar And Wind.
Have you even been paying attention? The nuclear plant withstood a freakishly powerful earthquake, followed by a serious tsunami. The damage didn't come from either one, it came from losing power. The reactors all shut down automatically, exactly like they were supposed to, but the cooling systems lost power and couldn't keep up. If you think your solar panels or wind turbines could have lasted through the tsunami and prevented this from occurring, we'll have to agree to disagree.
Can I Convert The Gas Heater To Solar To Heat Up The Inground Pool?
I Already Have Solar Panels On My Roof, Can I Use Them To Heat Up My Pool?
No, you cannot convert the gas heater to solar. However you can use the pipe where the filter connects the heater, use that point to connect to a solar heater system. If your roof solar system is designed for 'hot water' in the house, you can use it for a pool, but it may not be sufficient in size to heat the water enough. Many factors need to be considered: size (volume) of pool, where you live, solar orientation of panels, cost of running pump to run water through pipes on roof, etc.
