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 everyday life: running your a/c, washing clothing, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing 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 substantial, many homeowners discover that the convenience, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Leading Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically lower or perhaps remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a house owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can comprise a big portion of your month-to-month expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your energy costs and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Make an excellent return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the finest ways to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity costs cost savings, the typical American property owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, domestic electricity prices have increased by an average of 3 percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and secure versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a service or house owner with changing capital, going solar also assists you better forecast and handle your expenses.
#4 Boost your home value
Several research studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher home values and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, need for properties 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 an essential part of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price changes in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar market 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 nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a terrific method to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially decrease 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 commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are essential elements of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding services that pick to operate responsibly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of customer buying choices, creating goodwill and improving company results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Numerous homeowners decide to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The energy companies are well-known for their changing and unreliable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic mathematics, we can compute how much electricity will be produced, and most importantly, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty 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

- 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
How Would A Person Set Up A Solar Sytem With Battery Backup For A 1500W Quartz Heater?
I Have A 110V 1500W 13.63 Amp Quarts Heater. I Am Confused About What Kind Of Battery System It Would Require To Power The Heater For 8 Hours At Night And How Many Panels It Would Take To Charge The Batteries To Full Capacity.
This heating strategy is not really plausible or cost effective.
The calculations should explain why not.
A 100 Ampere hour battery supplies 5 Amperes for 20 hours (design basis duty cycle).
110/12×13.63= 125 Amperes continuous battery drain.
Ideally, you would need 25 100AH batteries for a stable power supply which is not self destructive,
and which will have a reasonable (5 year) service life.
The charging requirement would be 12 kWh per day plus losses (10-15%).
The area of solar panels depends on the average values of insolation (solar energy), and
whether the panels are rigid or capable of tracking.
A better alternative is "Trombe" storage (qv).
Other alternatives are propane, butane, wood, and coal.

How Does The Angle At Which Light Strikes A Minor Compare With The Angle At Which The Same Light Is Reflected?
How can solar energy be used for heating?
Water can be pumped through solar panels that collect heat energy from the sun. Often these are mounted directly on the roof of homes at an angle approximately equal to the latitude. It is pointed South in the Northern hemisphere and North in the Southern hemisphere.
What are the advantages of using lenses or mirrors in systems that collect solar energy?
By focusing the light you can increase the temperature of the water. The water can be used with less water pumped and it can even get hot enough to generate electricity through a steam generator.
In which area or region (polar or equatorial region) can benefit most from the application of solar energy? Why?
Equatorial regions benefit most, because a smaller surface area is required to collect equivalent energy. A smaller surface energy means less cost.
Measuring solar power.
How can you measure the local power output from the nearest continuous running fusion reactor, the sun?
Voltage output from a PV cell on a clear day.
You are planning to install 15 sq. meters of solar cell on your roof. How much power will you expect them to produce?
10 sq ft can produce about 125 watts
15 sq ft is about 188 watts.
But on cloudy days and at Northern latitudes and Winter it will be less.
The most efficient solar panels PV are about 15% of the light energy. It works more efficiently on sunny days, and will not generate power at night.
Relating color and radiation absorption
What color absorbs infra red radiation best?
If you wanted the roof of your house to absorb the sun's radiation to help heat your house, would you buy black or white shingles?
What color shingles would you buy if you lived in a climate that was always sunny and warm?
White to reflect the unwanted heat.
How does the angle at which light strikes a mirror compare with the angle at which the same light is reflected?
The reflection of light on a mirror is the same angle relative to the surface of the mirror (in the opposite direction of course).
How Do You Purify Water Without Solar Energy?
How Do You Purify Water Without Solar Energy In Emergency?
You can use iodine tablets, add a small amount of bleach, boil it, or use an ultrafilter.
What Is The Future Of Solar Energy?
I Want To Know, What You All Think About The Future Of Solar Energy?
I don't think the cost of solar energy will go up, at least not until it is a commodity energy source and everyone uses it. On the other hand, I see all centrally-generated energy going up in price, as it always has. So solar will become a better and better deal as the years pass. It's already a good deal in places like Hawaii and California, even without subsidies.
