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 homeowner to use the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, washing clothes, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, numerous homeowners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably lower or even remove your electric bills
Whether you're a homeowner, company, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can comprise a large part of your monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create 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 lower your energy costs and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power expense savings, the average American homeowner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the past ten years, domestic electrical power costs have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect against unpredictable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're a company or house owner with ever-changing money flow, going solar likewise helps you better projection and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home or business worth
Numerous studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher home values and sell more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly 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 homes geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key element of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a great method to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A normal property solar panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are very important elements of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that choose to run responsibly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of customer purchasing choices, developing goodwill and improving service results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Numerous homeowners select to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The energy business are well-known for their varying and undependable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can compute what does it cost? electrical energy will be generated, and most importantly, at what price, 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.
- 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
Why Do Train Cars Have Solar Panels?
I Was Riding Amtrack The Other Day, And We Passed A Long Train Of Hopper Cars Withe Some Kind Of Ore. In Each End Of Each Car Was A Small Solar Panel. What Would These Be Used For?
The solar panel is for charging a battery.The cars are hopper cars that can be dumped by a remote signal.
ghost train? LMAO! yeah right
Solar Panel Housing, What Should I Use...?

Since Solar Panels Are Becoming Popular. Where Can I Get The Training To Install, Maintain, And Repair Them?
I Am A Journeyman Electrician But No One Here Seems To Know About This.
If you're already a journeyman, I think you're 90% there. There is an expanded federal tax credit for photovoltaic panels coming on line next year, so solar installation companies may be getting a boost in business, at least in areas where the people are not hurting from the economy. And when the economy improves, it only gets better.
Photovoltaic panels rarely need maintenance or repair. If something goes wrong, it's likely to be simple and catastrophic, such as lightning hit it, or a bullet, or a falling tree.
As for installation, a number of panels are wired in series (it's all plug and play, with the new MC-3 connectors), and then the wires go into a junction box. From there, it's all stuff you already know, wire gauge appropriate for the current, insulation rating for the temperature, conduit fill factors, compliance with the NEC, etc., all the way down to the inverter and service panel. It's not that different from adding a new circuit to somebody's house.
Your best move may be to work for a solar installation company for a while. They can use your skills with the hookup, and you can learn how they architect a system based on the customer's energy use, and how they do the physical installation.
I Have A Question About Solar Panels?
So During The Day, Electricity Is On, Everything Is On And Working Fine. But At Night Where There Is No Sunlight Does All The Electricity Shut Down For The Night? So There Is No Light On For Me During The Night, Or I Can'T Watch Tv At Night? Is It Also True That With Solar Panels, Your Bills Are Less Expensive. Can Someone Please Tell Me These Things
>But at night where there is no sunlight does all the electricity shut down for the night?
Electrical production shuts down, but most solar electric systems have some way of storing power.
There are two main types of storage:
1. Grid tie. Basically this uses the power grid as a "virtual" battery. You produce extra power during sunlight hours to "sell" to the grid (other people use it) and you buy power from the grid when the sun doesn't shine.
This is usually the most economical system, but whether you save money depends on a lot of things like: cost of installation, location, government subsidies & how much you get for the electricity you sell & buy.
In other words, the details matter. Mostly location, which determines how much sunlight you get, electric rates, and subsidies.
2. Batteries. Usually a large bank of deep cycle lead acid batteries. Usually only used in "off-grid" systems and the cost of electricity is usually not competitive with grid electricity.
Were Solar Panels Made By Copying How Plants Collect Sunlight?
In Nature, Green Leaves Collect Light And Produce Energy. Is This What They Copied To Make Solar Panels? If Not How Hard Would It Be To Make Artificial Leaves That Would Power Our Homes?
Solar panels were not made to copy leaves. Leaves have molecules that become excited when they are hit by light. They store this energy in ADP molecules and ATP molecules. This works great for biological processes, but until we learn how to use Adenosine Di/Triphosphate to transport energy, we are better off sticking with our solar panels. They produce electricity, which we know how to use.
