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 property owner to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning system, cleaning clothing, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, many homeowners discover that the convenience, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly lower or even remove your electric bills
Whether you're a house owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can comprise a large portion of your month-to-month costs. With a solar panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your energy costs and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power bill savings, the average American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the previous ten years, domestic electrical energy prices have actually increased by an average of 3 percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard against unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're an organisation or house owner with changing capital, going solar also helps you much better forecast and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your house value
Several studies have discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher property worths and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost changes in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A common residential solar panel system will get rid of 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are essential components of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding companies that pick to run properly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of consumer buying choices, creating goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Many house owners decide to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility companies are notorious for their fluctuating and unreliable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can compute what does it cost? electrical power will be generated, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for at least the next 20 years (repaired 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
- $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
Using The &Quot;Load&Quot; Side Hook Up On A Small Solar Panel Inverter, Can I Hook?
Using The &Quot;Load&Quot; Side Hook Up On A Small Solar Panel Inverter, Can I Hook A Small Wired Dc To Dc Converter With A Usb Port To Run A Device Without Running It Through A Battery And Directly To The Device If The Volts Are The Same On Both The Inverter And Usb Connector ?
Not a good idea. Often the output of the panel is unstable, which is why they are designed to charge a battery to stabilise the voltage.
Are All Solar Panels Have The Same Measurements As To Sizes?
There Is A Need To Know On What Are The Sizes Of Solar Panels. Do They Come In Standard Sizes? If So, How Many Watts Can A Single Panel Generate Power. How Many Panels Are Needed To Support A Small Refrige, A Tv- Set And A Small Room Electric Heater? How Much Does One Panel Costs? What Is The Company That Supply This Kind Of Power Alternatives. In The Event There Is Power Failure As That October Snow Storm Upon Which Big Trees Destroyed The Power Lines From Falling Into Them, This Is For This Reason It Is Being Asked For Future Readiness. It Is Is Also A Logical Electric Saver! Thank You!
There is no standardized panel size across manufacturers. Serious panels tend to be the size of a coffee table. Mountnig racks generally come with adjustable hardware to accommodate almost any size panel. As for power output, that varies, too, but present panels tend to be in the 220-watt range, each.
It would not be practical to power just one room from solar, especially only when the power fails. The cheaper alternative for that situation is a little gasoline-powered generator, maybe 1500 watts. You can run it outside and run an extension cord to a power strip inside.
How Many Solar Panels Does It Take To Run A House?
the standard home in the USA is 200A service, 240V (220 - 240) that is 44000 watts (44kW).
There are not many that require 200A all at the same time though, but the capacity is there.
You need to look at your billing record from the utility company to know for sure.
Next, youcannot run directly off solar panels, you do run off power inverters powered by batteries.
So, you need inverters, you need batteries, you need solar panels to keep the batteries charged.
The inverters need to be pure sine wave, no modified sine wave junk.
Panels will cost about $0.75 per watt
Inverters will cost about $2.00 per watt
Batteries will cost you about $1.75 per watt.
Figure in losses... go with about $5.00 per watt
You need 44000 watts to completely remove you from the grid.
Do You Use Passive Solar Panels To Help Heat Your Home?
What Kind Of Performance Do You Get? How Much Did Your System Cost And Did You Do It By Yourself?
This probably isn't the best answer, but here goes. My father-in-law is an electrician at a nuclear power plant, so he knows more than a bit about transmission, generation, and so forth. He told me it was completely impractical to use passive solar panels to heat your home, BUT he has them rigged up in the back yard to heat his water.
So, I'm afraid I don't really have a solid answer, but I can suggest that you might want to be asking another question.
Constructing A Solar Geyser?
So I Have A Solar Heater Which Directly Uses Sunlight To Heat Water In The Tank. Now This Is Fine During Summer (In Fact It Is Excessively Find Coz We Get Boiling Hot Water When We Dont Need It) But During Winter And Monsoon, There Is Some Difficulty Is Getting Hot Water. Now I Am Thinking About Setting Up The Heater In Such A Way That Instead Of Directly Heating The Water, I Want The Solar Panel To Instead Charge A Battery/Inverter Which Then Can Be Used To Heat The Water Whenever I Want It To Ie Change It To A Solar Water Heating Geyser Instead Of An Electric Geyser.
And If This Is Successful, Then Maybe Later On I Can Expand It To Slowly Electrify Different Sections Of My House (Of Course I Would Need More Than One Solar Panel) My Question Is...Is This Possible? I Mean We Get Lot Of Sunlight Where I Live (In Fact It Is The Hottest Place In The Region And Is Known As Sun City) Temperatures Range From Mid 40S (°C) From Mid March To June And In Excess Of 25°C During The Monsoon Period While The Average Temperature Is Over 15°C During Winter (Though It Regularly Drops Below 10°C In Nights) Is This &Quot;Project&Quot; Possible And Feasible? (Both Financially And With Regards To Power Consumption/Efficiency)
What you're talking about is usually done by adding a tankless water heater to the solar thermal system as a backup source of heat. A tankless water heater uses a large amount of power in a very short period of time so a solar photovoltaic system isn't suitable, at least not without a large battery bank. It would be best to tie into the grid and do net metering, drawing the substantial amount of power from the grid for the very brief periods of time when the power is needed and bank the low power produced by the photo-voltaics to offset the cost. An actual battery bank would be expensive and the high power draw would shorten the life of the batteries substantially.
If you change the solar thermal system to a vacuum tube solar thermal collector then you can achieve high temperatures during winter and even on cloudy days but such a system would require safety provisions to vent high pressure steam that would inevitably be generated.
Mind you if a vacuum tube collector system is paired up with a lithium bromide cycle chiller you can have solar powered air conditioning with all that excess heat in the summer. Problem is that absorption cycle chillers are usually quite large, on the order of 150 tons to thousands of tons of cooling, a small 30 ton unit is commercially available but that's enough to cool ten houses and is priced accordingly. Unless you have a micro village sharing a solar thermal loop, absorption cycle chillers are not an economic option.
