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 utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioner, cleaning clothes, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing 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 significant, many residents discover that the convenience, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.
Leading Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably reduce and even remove your electric costs
Whether you're a property owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can make up a large portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create totally free 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 decrease your energy costs and you'll still save a lot of loan.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy costs savings, the average American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, property electricity costs have actually gone up by an average of three percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure against unforeseeable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a service or house owner with changing money flow, going solar likewise helps you better forecast and manage your expenses.
#4 Boost your house value
Several research studies have discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater property worths and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for properties 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 an essential component of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is an excellent way to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A normal domestic photovoltaic panel system will remove three to 4 heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are very important components of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding services that decide to run responsibly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of consumer purchasing decisions, creating goodwill and improving business results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no money down.
Many homeowners pick to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy 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 infamous for their changing and unreliable electrical energy rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can compute what does it cost? electrical power will be produced, and most notably, at what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed 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
- 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.

Via an inverter, which you can buy at many places.
The inverter uses power transistors and a transformer to convert the 12 volts DC to AC and raise it to the proper voltage level.
Is Solar Panels For A House Worth It?
Yes, yes, and yes! I had Arosa Energy come and give me an estimate and within a week they had the panels installed quick and neatly done. We're now seeing our bills go down and it's mind boggling how much we're saving! I would suggest you take it serious. Happy saving!
Is There A Way To Charge A Solar Panel Without The Sun? I Know There Has Got To Be A Way!!!?
Any light source can be used for a solar panel to produce Electricity such as a lighted room. Like what amanssci said it is not of much use accept for small gadgets such watches and calculaters which uses solar cells.
How To Make Solar Cells Or Panel And How I Can Store Energy Generated By Solar Panel?

Are Solar Panels A Viable Option In Il?
I'Ve Been Thinking And I'D Like To Have Solar Panels Installed On My Roof At Some Point To Help Reduce Our Electricity Consumption- But I Live In Il And In The Winter It Frequently Snows. Is There Such A Thing As Heated Solar Panels So They Don'T Get Coated W/Ice Or Snow? Are Solar Panels Even A Feasible Option In Il? Thank You, Anna
Absolutely you can have solar panels in IL, there Anna. I am from Rochester, NY so I am a little familiar with frequent snowfalls! Plus my In Laws have solar panels and they live just outside of Chicago. (Oak Park sounds familiar, but I cant for the life of me remember the name of their community) Check with your local building department as to what you may have to do to your existing roof, as the panels and its necessary roof bracing can be quite heavy. Add a good Lake Michigan snowfall to an already heavy roof and you could have yourself a big problem!
In better news many utilities and states around the country provide financial subsidies and incentives that along with the subsidies from those from the Federal Government greatly reduce the initial cost and speed up the amount of time it takes for you to recoup your initial investment.
Solar panels by their very nature are warm, as they absorb the light from the sun. The latitude for IL is such that the solar panels on your roof will be tilted so much that the only way snow can build up is if there such a snowfall on your roof that its accumulation rises above the solar panels. There is no such thing as heated solar panels and you can very easily have solar panels in climates ranging from the Carribean to Northern Canada/Alaska. If you get serious about solar energy give a company called Sun Electronics a call. I know it may sound lame but my in-laws used them for their house and have been quite happy with the outcome. My In laws (at times) are cheap and are not an easy crowd to please.....but again are very happy with their outcome!
