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 utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothes, seeing TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, many home owners discover that the convenience, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically minimize or perhaps remove your electric expenses
Whether you're a house owner, company, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a big portion of your monthly expenditures. 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 minimize your utility bills and you'll still conserve a lot of money.
#2 Make a terrific return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity expense savings, the average American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the previous ten years, residential electrical power costs have gone up by approximately three percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and safeguard against unpredictable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're a company or property owner with changing capital, going solar also assists you better forecast and handle your expenses.
#4 Increase your home or business worth
Numerous studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial part of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy
Inning accordance with 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 tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a terrific way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A normal property solar panel system will get rid of three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are very important elements of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that opt to run responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of customer acquiring decisions, creating goodwill and improving service results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Numerous homeowners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
Since 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 well-known for their varying and undependable electrical energy rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic mathematics, we can determine what does it cost? electrical energy will be generated, and most notably, at exactly what price, for a minimum of 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
- 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
I Have 230 Watt 36 Volt Solar Panel, 1 100Ah 12 Volt Battery And A 12 Volt Inverter. Can I Use Them Together?
Can I Charge My 12V Battery With The 36V Solar Panel? How Can I Connect The 12V Inverter To This Array?
Solar panel output current 6.39A max.
Put a 3.6 ohm resistor rated 200 watt to drop 36V into 14V at charging current 6A. Connect this big resistor in between solar output and +12V battery terminal.
Fully charging 12V battery time is 17 to 20 hours.
If Solar Power Is Better Than Electric Why Aren'T Street Lights Solar Powered?
When There Is A Power Outage Solar Powered Street Lights Would Be More Senseable To Have Enabling Us To Still Be Able To See The Street And Eventually Save Money. And Help Prevent Looting.
Currently solar panels are only 30% efficient; they don't work very well so they aren't used very often. Most street lights are lit with electricity from the electric grid so they will be still lit even if the sun isn't out for a few days.
However, I have seen traffic warning signs like "School Crossing" that have a solar panel on them. I have also seen signs that have to be lit out in the middle of nowhere with a solar panel on them to charge them up. So it is done, it just isn't done very often.
Scientists are trying to increase the efficiency of solar panels to 40% at that point they start to become economical to use. Currently most solar powered panels actually use heat from the sun to heat water. This is one way to replace your large water heater with a smaller less energy using one. Also some houses in the right areas, which get enough sunlight and have the right southern exposure, use solar panels to provide hot water to heat the building.
Solar panels are not always something that transforms sunlight to electricity. Sometimes they are just panels with water inside.
You can’t trust the sun to power street lights, the solar cells are not powerful enough or efficient enough, the battery technology we have isn’t up to the job either. It is best to connect street lights to the main electric grid and that will be true for some time to come.
Your suggestion is a vaild one and has been looked at, but it can't work yet. However, there are some situations where a solar cell can be used to power street signs.
How Does A Solar Powered Camera Work At Night And/Or In Bad Weather?
When they say "solar powered", what they actually mean is "light powered". Such devices are fitted with panels that absorb light particles (photons) and the device then converts the photon energy into a small electric signal, which makes the device run. Even when there is no apparent "sunlight", you do have some light around you, however faint it might be. If there was no light, you will feel pitch-dark and won't be able to see anything.
So if your camera (or any other solar-powered device) has very sensitive solar panels, it would be good enough to catch the photons from this dull light and work from it.
How Does One Help Fight Global Warming?
I Really Want To Cooperate In The Fight Against Global Warming But I Am Faced With Reality Of Also Having To Earn My Keep. When Are Car Companies Gonna Mass Produce Hybrid Cars To Make Them Cheaper? When Will Solar Panels And Wind Turbines Be Cheap Enough So That Majority Of Office And Homes Will Be Able To Use Them? Lastly, When Will America Make A Stand Against Carbon Emissions From Its Factories And Automobiles That Has Made The Most Damage To The Ozone Layer And Has Contributed Much To Global Warming? Im Willing To Use Alternative Sources Of Energy If Only They Were Affordable And Are Available In The Market The Way Celphones And Mp3 Players Are. What'S Your Opinion On This Matter?
How Does A Solar Panel Works?
How Do I Hook Up Solar Panels To My Home
Kinetic energy of the solar photons in the 'light', hit the surface of the compound, displacing the molecular components in it, creating a flow of energy carrying corpuscles down the wire.
These - collected at the end of this circuit - produce energy sufficient to cause movement via the magnetic fields they cross on the either natural or electrically induced magnets they pass through.
Basic principles to have in mind, is that these panels only produce ONE type of energy: direct. From one side (+) to another (-), and you must follow this principle when connecting. My suggestion is find the supplier and get instructions. They usually have detailed information.
In order to hook up this panel, you must follow instructions.
