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, cleaning clothes, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, many property owners discover that the convenience, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically reduce or even remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a homeowner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a large portion of your monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your energy costs and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.
#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the finest ways to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity bill cost savings, the typical American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, property electrical power prices have actually increased by approximately 3 percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard against unforeseeable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a business or homeowner with rising and falling capital, going solar also assists you much better projection and manage your expenditures.
#4 Boost your home worth
Multiple research studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, demand 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 component of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A normal property solar panel system will remove 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 corporate social obligation are essential parts of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding services that decide to run properly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of consumer buying choices, developing goodwill and enhancing service results.
#9 Start Conserving 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 cash down.
Many homeowners decide to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy 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 utility companies are infamous for their varying and undependable electrical power prices. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can calculate how much electrical energy will be produced, and most importantly, at what rate, for at least 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
- 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

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
Which One Would Generate More Energy?
I'M Doing A Science Project On Solar Panels And Windmills, And I Need To Know Which One Generates More Energy!
There's the matter of how much the solar panels costs versus the costs of the same generating capability in a wind turbine and the matter of when the electricity is generated.
Solar panels can easily costs tens of thousands of dollars, easily as much as 30 thousand dollars where as the same generation capability could be had from wind for perhaps 5 thousand or less.
Solar power is at it's peak during the day when demand for power is also at it's peak but winds tend to blow at night when power demands are at their lowest.
The current wind strategy is to sell the wind power to the utilities and purchase power back when needed, however only a limited amount of unreliable variable wind generating capability can be absorbed by the grid without adding contingency generation capability that can be varied on demand such as gas turbines, hydro or nuclear and even then wind could only ever displace baseline power generation which are currently generated mostly by coal plants.
Ultimately even wind power is solar power as wind is produced by temperature gradients hence wind is just less efficient solar as there has been more energy conversions and hence energy loss. Solar panels can be improved significantly so the future power generation capabilities are quite high whereas wind turbines are already almost as efficient as they can get so wind power is limited by available locations. Generally, solar power has a lot more potential generating capacity then wind.
How Much Energy Will I Save By Using Solar Power....?
First, go here http://rredc.nrel.gov/solar/old_data/nsr... , which is a map of how much sun various areas in the US get. (I'm making a big assumption that you are in the US.) Select, Average, Annual, Flat Plate Tilted South at Latitude. Then find your area on the map. This will reflect the equivalent hours of bright noonday sun in your area. It will be much less than the actual number of hours that the sun shines. That's expected.
So suppose your area gets 5 hours of sun per day. That works out to about 1800 hours per year. That means that for every 1 kW of solar panels you put up, you will get, on average, 1800 kWh of energy per year. If you put up a 5 kW array, you can expect to get 9000 kWh per year.
But the real question is, would that be worth it? That depends on how much it would cost to put up that array, vs. your cost savings, which depends on the local price for that annual amount of electricity. Only you can fill in those numbers.
100 Watt Solar Panel Make How Much Electricity In A Month During Summer?
I Have Looked At Solar Panels And I Am Confused. I Took Physics A Couple Years Ago So I Know That Watts Is Joules/Sec. But In Reality, How Many Watts Of Electricity Would I Get From A 100 Watt Solar Panel In A Month? I Believe The Angle And Cloud Coverage Effects The Output So For Those Calculations, As A Control: I Am In Los Angeles, California With 1 100 Watt Solar Panel During The Summer. How Many Kwh Worth Of Electricity Would I Get Out Of The 100 Watt Solar Panel?
I Want To Hook A Receiver, Speakers, Leds And Maybe Some Other Things Up To A Battery Which Would Be Charged During The Day By A Solar Panel. Its About 600 Watts Worth Of Stuff In Total.
With The 100 Watt Solar Panel And The Given Control Aspects, How Long Would I Be Able To Run The 600 Watts Worth Of Stuff? I Know 600 Watts Is .6 Kwh, But
Basically Would I Be Able To Take A 100 Watt Solar Panel And Hook It Up To A Battery (Probably A Car Battery?) And Then Hook 600 Watts Worth Of Appliances Up To The Battery And How Long Would I Be Able To Run The 600 Watts Before The Battery Dies?
If you took physics, you would realize that joules is energy and seconds is time therefore the amount of energy generated by the panel would be it's watts multiplied by time which is why your utility bills are kwh for kilowatt hour.
The calculations for solar panels are done by worst case solar insolation not summer time insolation. Hence for Southern US states, it's six hours of usable sunshine a day, in Northern US states, it's four hours usable per day and for Alaska, it's two hours usable per day. Obviously summertime values would be higher. With a 6 hour solar insolation, your 100 watt panel should produce 18,000 watt hours or 18 kwh in 30 days assuming 100% clear skies ( you have to look up the number of sunny days per year from the weather department to come up with an appropriate factor ). Another important factor to determine is the number or cloudy days in a row, you want the median and the standard deviation, the 95% value is the median plus two standard deviations, most people just go for 5 days for lead acid batteries but you do want to see where 5 days places versus the median and standard deviation to decide if you want to run your generators that often and loose that much life on your batteries.
Lead acid batteries are 95% efficient at discharging but only 50% efficient at charging. You may also want to consider Nickel Iron Batteries especially if you expect deep discharges such as the median number of cloudy days exceed three days if you're planning for five days battery capacity.
Any Nuclear Enegry Project Ideas... 10 Points?
I Have A Nuclear Energy Project For Physics Othe Groups Have Wind And Solar They Are Creating A Windmill And Generating Electricity Using Cabon Wires. I Need Some Ideas For Nuclear Energy Best Idea Gets 10 Points..
Compare the mass of radioactive waste produced by a nuclear power station to generate one exajoule of electric energy versus the mass of carbon dioxide that must be sequestered to dispose of the greenhouse gases produced by a coal burning power plant generating the same amount of electric energy.
Where Do I Connect A Grid Tied Solar Inverter?
Ok, Let'S Say We Have The Solar Modules Up (2Kw), Connected To The Inverter.. But Where Do We Need To Put The Inverter?
Can The Inverter Be On The Top Floor, Just Plugged Into The Wall Socket And The House'S System Takes It Up?
Or The Inverter Has To Connect Next To The Meter?
Do Not plug the inverter into the wall socket.
Your inverter must be connected to an AC disconnect and then into the meter. The AC disconnect must be mounted beside the electrical meter. When you register you solar system with the utility you must declare the location of this disconnect. The disconnect allows the utility to switch off power from your inverter when they are doing maintenance.
