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 home owners to use the sun to power daily life: running your a/c unit, washing clothing, viewing TV, 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 benefits of solar power are substantial, lots of residents discover that the convenience, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly lower or even remove your electric costs
Whether you're a homeowner, company, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can make up a big portion of your monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic 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 reduce your utility bills and you'll still save a great deal of loan.
#2 Make a terrific return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy bill savings, the typical American house owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, residential electrical power costs have increased by an average of three percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a service or homeowner with ever-changing cash circulation, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and handle your expenses.
#4 Boost your house worth
Numerous studies have discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater property values and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need for properties 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 element 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 price changes in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is an excellent method to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A typical domestic solar panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are crucial components of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding services that opt to run responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of consumer buying decisions, producing goodwill and improving business results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Many house owners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The energy business are notorious for their varying and unreliable electrical energy prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can compute how much electrical energy will be produced, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for at least the next Twenty 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.
- 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

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 Many Solar Panels Would I Need To Power My Home?
Or How Many Watts? I Dont Use Much Electricity. I Have On A Couple Of Lights And A Computer, Sometimes The Tv. How Many Solar Panels Would I Need To Power Those Constantly Throughout The Day, And Maybe Charge Batteries For Night? The Air, Refrigerator And Hot Water Heater I Would Still Use Regular Electricity.
Solar panels produce DC electricity, not AC. So, they would have to charge a bank of batteries, then you'd need an inverter to convert DC to AC.
You need to find what your peak wattage is (consumption) and how long you want to run things for and work backwards from there.
Suffice to say, a roof-full of panels probably won't be enough.
How Many Solar Panels Do I Need To Power A Small House?
Im Only Powering Lights And Fans
Solar panels produce DC (12v, 24v, 48v, etc) voltage. You will need to invert the solar power to AC. The amount of panels is determined on the amount of Watt Hours of electrical load you will be using. If you want to run these loads after the sun goes gown then you will have to store your solar generated power into batteries.
I have a completely off grid home, 2000 watts solar, propane heat, H20, refrigerator, and generator. Total electrical system cost about $50,000. 1000 square foot home, facing do south.
Hope this is helpfull.
Charging Sla Battery With Solar Panel? Safe Voltage?
I Have A Very Small 10V Solar Panel (Which I Made By Connecting 4 Very Small 2.5V Solar Panels In Series) And I Want To Charge A 6V Sla Battery With It. Is 10V Too Much Voltage For It? I'Ve Read That The Maximum Is Around 7 Volts But My Solar Panel Doesn'T Really Put Out Many Milliamps. My Question Is, Even Though It Barely Puts Out Any Milliamps, Is 10 Volts Still Too Much For It?
Your battery will bring the voltage of your solar cells down to what they need. If you had more powerful solar cells you should have a voltage regulator in the system.
But good for you. you are playing with a very useful technology. Do it and learn.
Solar Panels And Distance From The Sun?
I Was Having A Discussion With A Friends About Solar Panels.
He Says That If There Is A Solar Panel (Sp1) On The Ground And A Solar Panel (Sp2) High In The Atmosphere (In The Stratosphere) The Difference In Power Output Between Sp1 And Sp2 Negligible.
I Said That There Would Be A Large Difference In Power Output Because Sp1 Has All Of The Atmosphere To Block The Suns Rays And Sp2 Has Very Little Atmosphere Because It Is Very High Up (In The Stratosphere) Therefore More Sun Can Get To The Panel And More Power Is Produced.
Who Is Correct?
Many Thanks In Advance, Please Leave Sources If Possible, For Validity.
There will be a difference (44%, see below) but not a large one. The atmosphere is transparent to the wavelengths used by the solar panel. But no clouds, and a lot more hours of sunlight.
Space-based solar power (SBSP) (or historically space solar power- SSP) is a system for the collection of solar power in space, for use on Earth. SBSP differs from the usual method of solar power collection in that the solar panels used to collect the energy would reside on a satellite in orbit, often referred to as a solar power satellite (SPS), rather than on Earth's surface. In space, collection of the Sun's energy is unaffected by the day/night cycle, weather, seasons, or the filtering effect of Earth's atmospheric gases.
The world Radiation Centre's 1985 standard extraterrestrial spectrum for solar irradiance is 1367 W/m2. The integrated total terrestrial solar irradiance is 950 W/m2. Therefore, extraterrestrial solar irradiance is 144% of the maximum terrestrial irradiance. A major interest in SBSP stems from the length of time the solar collection panels can be exposed to a consistently high amount of solar radiation. For most of the year, a satellite-based solar panel can collect power 24 hours per day, whereas a land-based station can collect for only 12 hours per day, yielding lower power collection rates around the sunrise and sunset hours.
The collection of solar energy in space for use on Earth introduces the new problem of transmitting energy from the collection point, in space, to the place where the energy would be used, on Earth's surface. Since wires extending from Earth's surface to an orbiting satellite would be impractical, many SBSP designs have proposed the use of microwave beams for wireless power transmission. The collecting satellite would convert solar energy into electrical energy, which would then be used to power a microwave emitter directed at a collector on the Earth's surface. Dynamic solar thermal power systems are also being investigated.
Some problems normally associated with terrestrial solar power collection would be eliminated by such a design, such as dependence on meteorological and weather conditions, and the panels being prone to corrosion. Other problems may take their place though, such as cumulative radiation damage or micrometeoroid impacts.
