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 house owners to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, cleaning clothes, seeing TV, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, lots of home owners find that the benefit, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly decrease or perhaps eliminate your electrical costs
Whether you're a homeowner, business, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can comprise a big part of your month-to-month expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll generate complimentary 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 utility bills and you'll still save a great deal of cash.
#2 Make a great return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity costs cost savings, the typical American property owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the previous ten years, domestic electrical power costs have gone up by an average of 3 percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and protect versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're an organisation or house owner with fluctuating money circulation, going solar likewise assists you much better forecast and handle your costs.
#4 Boost your home value
Several research studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell more quickly than non-solar homes. 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, need for properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential component of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, 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 jobs in the country. 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 outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is an excellent method to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A typical residential photovoltaic panel system will get rid of 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are essential parts of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that select to operate properly. Organisations are finding that "green" credentials are an effective driver of customer acquiring choices, creating goodwill and improving organisation results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Many homeowners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
Since 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 notorious for their changing and undependable electrical energy prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate just how much electricity will be generated, and most notably, at exactly what cost, for a minimum of 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 Isn'T The Federal Government Willing To Subsidize Solar Energy Panels For Homes?
Some States Like Tx And Nj Will Subsidize Solar Energy 40% Worth.
But The Technology To Date Has Been Quite Costly In Spite Of These States' Subsidizing The Cost. However, Solar Energy Is Starting To Turn The Corner Cost-Effectively In The Past Year Or Two.
Why Is There No Serious Encouragement From The Federal Gov'T To Encourage Homeowners To Install Solar Energy Panels By Offerering Subsidies Or Rebates For Installing It?
Would This Be A Good Idea?
great idea...but the time hasent come yet. I came accross a new, proven and tested home made wind power system and solar power system which eliminates our electricity bills. It was written by a Renewable energy enthusiasts Michael Harvey the diy called Earth4energy. You can get your copy to save energy and help environment while eliminating your power bills.

Charging Li-On Batteries With Solar Panel?
With Nicads And Nimh Batteries, You Can Leave Them Charging Indefinitely As Long As The Charge Current Is Limited To No More Than C/10. Would This Same Rule Apply To Li-Ons? What If You Were To Limit The Li-On Charging Current To C/20 Just To Be On The Safe Side?
Right Now, I Use A Lm317t Regulator To Limit The Charge Current And It Works Just Fine. I Was Thinking Of Getting Higher Capacity Li-On Batteries And Using Another Regulator To Limit It'S Current. But I Don'T Kow Is Setting The Current To C/20 Or More Would Possibly Lead To Fire Or Explosion If I Just Leave Them Charging All Day.
Thanks For Your Help!
"What happens if a battery is inadvertently overcharged? lithium-ion is designed to operate safely within their normal operating voltage but become unstable if charged to higher voltages. When charging above 4.30V, the cell causes plating of metallic lithium on the anode; the cathode material becomes an oxidizing agent, loses stability and releases oxygen. Overcharging causes the cell to heat up. If left unattended, the cell could vent with flame."
According to this site, you would design a charging circuit that , as the full charge is reached, reduces the charging current & measures the cell voltage. The charging circuit would be designed to shut off when the full voltage is reached.
In the alternative, you could also set a timer, to prevent over-charge.
Are There Solar Panel That Work Without The Sun?
There cannot be a solar panel which works without sun light. But solar panels can work without sunlight. For example you would have seen the battery less calculators which work on solar power. they work in the night too with enough light coming from the bulbs in the room. So the answer to your question in yes. But for generating power we have to have a source which is free and we cannot put the panel in lighted area, which will make is not economical since the nett power obtained will be negative.
How Much Is The Average Solar Panel?
Im Making An Energy Efficiant House For Science Class And I Need To Price The House. Im Putting Solar Pannels On The Roof And Would U Please Tell Me How Much They Are Per Like 2 Sq. Feet Of A Pannel?
You are way out of your depth if your report for science class is supposed to be knowledgable.
First of all, Solar panels alone will NOT be enough to charge the battery bank, which you don't even mention in your quesiton.
Secondly, the only way to have a usable 12 VDC system is to use a wind generator to keep the batteries charged to capacity and, as a plus, they will work at night.
A 65 Watt ARCO Solar Panel is about $300 and you need to figure your power by the Wattage Rading for the particular panels .
You also need to add in the cost of a 12VDC to 110VAC invertor, monitoring panels etc.... AND... just how big is the ROOF of the house you are planning to use.?
This is an area of involved study and it's a bit more than what you are imagining for your high school science class report.
People Who Rent Solar Panels, What Do You Think Of Them And Was Your Rep Really Flaky Or Was That Just Mine?
Do You Save Money Renting Solar Panels? Even In California With Our Inflated Electric Rates? Had Any Roof Problems? How Is Maintenance?
They are eco friendly but that's about it for me, as for saving money not so much they ended up being about the same cost for me as before I had them. they provide all maintenance for me free of charge although mine are only a few years old and have not broken yet so I haven't tested service on that "yet" only know what or how its supposed to be. and yes my sales rep was loopy too but the installers etc after that were normal. mine also put power back into the grid and turn my meter backwards when not using all the power they put out. keep in mind though im in AZ so theres always sun pretty much lol.
