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 air conditioning system, cleaning clothing, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, numerous home owners discover that the benefit, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably reduce or perhaps eliminate your electrical expenses
Whether you're a property owner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can make up a big part of your monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your energy bills and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Make a terrific return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy bill savings, the average American property owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the past 10 years, residential electricity costs have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect against unpredictable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a company or homeowner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise helps you better projection and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home or business value
Several research studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher home values and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, demand for homes geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial element of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar market included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent method 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 typical property photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are necessary elements of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding services that decide to operate properly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of consumer buying decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (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 choices. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
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 notorious for their varying and unreliable electricity rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can determine how much electrical energy will be created, and most notably, at what cost, for at least 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Much Does 1000 Square Feet Of Solar Panels Cost (Pool Heating)?
How Much Does 1000 Square Feet Of Solar Panels Cost? This Is For A Pool With Dimensions 75Ft By 25Ft? How Much Will It Cost Including Installation Fee And The Water Heater?
the expensive way is to have solar panels make electricity to run an electric heater.
the cheap way is to have panels heat the water directly.
that's a fairly large pool, but it should work.
probably not in Alaska in January.
but then, you're not going to generate any electricity there either.
Electricity From Solar Water Heater?
In My House, A Solar Water Heater Is Installed Similar To This Picture. Http://En.Wikipedia.Org/Wiki/Image:Solarboiler.Jpg
Can This Panel Be Used To Generate Electricity With Some Modification, So That It Can Stored In Battery And Used To Power Electronic Items?
If you heat the water too much too produce an intense amount of steam, which when transferred to a turbine connected to a generator, will rotate it, you can produce electricity. But this is practically not possible with this solar water heater.
I think you are bit confused between Solar-cell panels and Solar water heater.
Both of these devices are completely different from each other. The only similarity is, that they work on solar energy.
Solar cells are made up of semi-conductor elements, which when kept in sunlight, produce electricity.
But on the other hand, Solar Water Heater is a device containing a common black coloured box, in which thin pipes carry water. This water, due to sunlight, get heated.
Even both the devices work on Solar Energy, but they are entirely different.

Does Anyone Know A Good Company To Buy Solar Panels From?
I'M A Carpenter, And Can Do Electric Work. I Want To Make Some Money Installing Solar Panels. What'S The Best Source?
Wow. This is a big question.
First, are you in the United States? If so, then I would look at a couple of web sites.
First, I would look at joining ASES - the American Solar Energy Society. (Actually, I'd do this whether or not you were in the US) Their magazine will have ads and directorys and so forth for panel manufacturers, inverter manufacturers, rack vendors, metering companies, etc. At the very least, their web site will give you numerous links to popular panel manufacturers.
Right now, it can be difficult to get panels in the US. My buying agent can't promise us a significant number of panels until at least late this coming fall. And prices are going up due to a silicon shortage at the moment. Still, you could probably get your hands on small quantities. You just might not be able to choose exactly which manufacturer you want.
Also, I'd look into getting NABCEP certification. This is the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners. They provide a referral service for people looking for solar installers, and they may have a net work of members that could help get you started.
I Am Entertaining The Thought Of Getting Solar Panels For My Home To Save Money.?
I Don'T Know If It'S Worth The Hassle Though.Can Someone With Solar Panels Please Tell Me If It'S Worth It.Thank You For Your Response.
As far as I know, unless you live in a location with a huge amount of consistent strong sunlight and typically use a fairly large amount of electricity the cost of purchase and installation could take up to twenty years to recoup in savings. Obviously you would have to sit down with a calculator and do the math for your own situation to figure out exactly how it would work for you. It shouldn't be hard to figure out a round about figure if you go over your bills and research the amount of energy that you can expect to generate in your location with whatever brand, style, size, etc of system your looking at. Do the math, but don't expect some crazy cost savings unless you live near the equator.
How Can I Encase Solar Panels For A Resonanle Price?
Acrylic Is To Expensive, Epoxy Clouds Over With Exposure To Light, Wood Swells, Warps, And Rots, Glass Cracks, Plexiglass I'M Pretty Sure Is Out Of The Question, And Metal Is Just Not Strong Enough, It Flexes Like Crazy. The Panel Is To Be Made With 3X6 Cells. So It'Ll Be Pretty Big. And Nobody Put Stuff About Global Warming Or I'Ll Give You Negative Feedback. The Hoax Has Gone Far Enough.
Do understand that it's generally not going to be a net savings making your own panel. To make something watertight, and resistant to weather for decades, and that will pass lots of sunlight, would cost more than to just buy a ready-made panel.
But the compromise might be to use ordinary 1/8" window glass, and seal it with some kind of UV-resistant roofing silicone. From time-to-time, I would re-check the seal to make sure it's still good. As for cracking, unless you're in an area that gets hail, I wouldn't worry.
For commercial panels, they use a tempered, low-iron glass that is tough, and also very transparent to the wavelengths that the solar cells use.
