About Solar 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.

#3 Safeguard versus rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, domestic electricity prices have gone up by approximately 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a business or house owner with rising and falling cash flow, going solar likewise assists you much better forecast and handle your expenses.

#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance

Many house owners opt to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
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 utility business are infamous for their changing and unreliable electrical energy rates. There is plainly an upward trend.
With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical power will be produced, and most notably, at exactly what rate, for at least the next 20 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.

- 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

Need Solar Panel Help?
How Does It Work? Is It The Hooter It Is The More Energy It Produce? Please Help.
Do you mean HOTTER?? HOOTERS have nothing to do with solar panels . . . . :-)
Heat has nothing to do with it. It is the amount of light (sunlight), not the heat. Solar panels work just as well in the cold. Even in space, like on the Space Station, where temperatures can be as low as 300 degrees F below zero.
Very simply put, the solar panels are made of a special chemical that responds to photons of light. When a light photon hits the chemical, it knocks an electron off an atom. When this happens to millions and million of atoms, this causes electron flow -- which is, of course, electricity.
Just like a battery, the solar panels must be hooked "in series" with what ever you are wanting to power. So the electrons flow right around the circut and back into the solar cell, where they go back into place and wait for the next photon of light.
VERY SIMPLE, first-grade explanation of a photo-chemical process that is far too difficult to explain othewise.
There are also solar water heating panels that some people use on their homes. In this case the sunlight is focused onto a tube containing a "volatile" liquid, like an alcohol. The focused light heats up the tube (like a magnifying glass), and the heat goes into the alcohol.
These tubes flow down to the water heater in the garage, where the heat is transferred to the water. The cooled alcohol is pumped back to the roof to cycle again.
While this directly uses heat energy, it comes from the focused light, so these will still work on a cold day, so long as the alcohol doesn't freeze.
Economics Of Solar Power?
Is Solar Going To Become An Affordable Alternative Soon? How Cheap Does It Need To Get? Is It Typically Calculated As Cost Per Watt, Or? How Much Electic Does The Typical Home Use? Any Insight Would Be Apreciated.
solar power is still a new technology. companies that are pursuing it aggressively are for the most part small and arent selling a large volume. low sales means the company must have a high profit margin to survive, this translates into high prices for the equipment. when other forms of energy become to expensive more people will turn to solar allowing the manufacturers to invest in more efficient processes allowing them to charge less for their product. copper is also very expensive at the moment. (used in high quality solar panels)
how cheap? i have no idea. maybe the price of coal needs to get higher! LOL
Can Any One Direct Me To A Web Site That Tells You How To Install Solar Panels On My Home Correctly?
I'M Looking For Instructions To Install Solar Panels. I Have A Place To Buy All The Panels And Inverters.. I Just Need More Detail On The Different Ways To Hook It Up. How Much Power Needed, Etc.
That information should come with the panels. Is there a brand name? (At this point I assume you are buying used equipment.) Go to google.com and type the brand name into the box and see what you get. If that doesn't do it then you need to find someone who happens to know how to do it.
