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 conditioning unit, cleaning clothes, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, numerous property owners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically lower and even eliminate your electric expenses
Whether you're a house owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can comprise a big part of your month-to-month expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your energy bills and you'll still save a great deal of loan.
#2 Make a great return on your investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity bill cost 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 Secure against rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical power costs have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and secure versus unpredictable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a business or property owner with changing cash circulation, going solar likewise helps you better forecast and manage your costs.
#4 Boost your home value
Multiple studies have discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher home worths and sell more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, need for properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a terrific method to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A common property solar panel system will remove 3 to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

Progressively, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that choose to operate responsibly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of customer purchasing decisions, creating goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Lots of property owners choose to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar supplier for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The energy companies are well-known for their changing and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical energy will be created, and most importantly, at what price, for at least the next 20 years (repaired 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
Solar Panels Save Money Right?
So Why Dont' More Pople Use Them? If They Save You Money In The Long Run, Its Like An Investment, Why Wouldn'T You Spend A Little Now To Save In The Future? Or Is There Some Kind Of Catch With Using These Things That I'M Missing?
"The dollar-per-watt ratio is the best way to compare the prices of solar cells. How does this ratio work? If we assume that a solar array costs $500 and generates 100 Watts, the dollar-per-watt ratio is $5.00 per watt. The current best deals on solar cells is around $4.30 per watt.", here's more info if interested
With My Solar Panels During Winter?
How Do I Keep Ice From Building Up On The Surface, And Snow From Accumulating On Them?
Do not put salt on your solar panels. I would not worry with the clear ice because the panels will heat up and melt it same with snow as long as some part of the panel can get sun light. Mine have been covered many times with snow and I just lightly sweep them off just enough to get some of the black cells to show and in a couple of hours they will be clear on their own.
The colder the solar panels are the better they work. And if you live in a snowy area you might want to do a ground mount so you can go sweep without getting on a roof.
Can A Solar Panel Run Without An Inverter? If So, How Effecient Will It Be And For How Long It Might Run?
Public Electric Is Almost Nonexistent In My Country And With Plenty Of Subshine; Sometimes 10 Hours Or More Per Day, I Am Becoming Freak-Up About Solar Panel. Most People Here Use Generators That Are Very Unstable Subsequently Leading To Destruction Of Property.
Yes. The inverter is used convert DC to AC power. You can connect the solar panel to batteries to store power, but to use the power it will be DC only. So it can power on equipment that uses DC. If you want to power things that normally use AC, then you will need to convert to AC, which requires an inverter.
Storing Solar Energy?
If I Install A 250Wp Solar Panel On My House And I Get 10 Hours Of Peak Sunshine (In Theory), How Would I Store This 2.5Kwh? What Type Of Battery Could I Buy So That I Could Run Lights, Fridge, Tv From The Battery. What Sort Of Amps Or Specs Should I Consider?
I Know I Need An Inverter For Ac/Dc And Other Stuff, But I Just Need To Know About The Battery.
I know you said "in theory," but most of the question is on practical matters, so I'll answer that way.
A 250 watt peak panel is more likely to deliver about 220 watts, given the way the rating system works for panels. Also, peak sunshine is not the number of hours that the sun is out. Even in the summer in California where I live, when the days are 16 hours long, we only get 6 hours peak sun.
Also count on losing 25% of the energy, just in the inefficiencies of charging and discharging a battery.
Lead-acid batteries are the typical choice for cost reasons. This type of battery will be damaged if allowed to discharge too far, so you probably would not connect a fridge to such a small system, only things that are non-critical, and you could turn off at any time. Either that, or you would have a much larger system.
