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 air conditioning system, cleaning clothing, watching TV, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are substantial, many homeowners find that the convenience, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably lower and even eliminate your electrical costs
Whether you're a property owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can comprise a big part of your regular monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your energy bills and you'll still save a lot of money.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power expense cost savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against increasing energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical energy costs have actually increased by an average of 3 percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and protect versus unpredictable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a business or house owner with fluctuating money circulation, going solar likewise assists you much better projection and handle your expenses.
#4 Increase your home or business worth
Multiple research studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater property values and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, need for homes equipped with solar 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 element of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price variations in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A normal domestic photovoltaic panel system will remove three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are very important elements of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that choose to operate responsibly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective driver of consumer acquiring decisions, producing 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 house owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Lots of homeowners decide to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar company for electrical power-- 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 Investment
The utility business are notorious for their changing and undependable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and easy math, we can calculate just how much electrical energy will be produced, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

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
What Can I Build To Use As An Electric Source Without Building A Solar Panel To Power My House?
I Want To Find Alternative Sources Of Energy Use Without Paying Electric Bills Per Month. I Was Looking Up Inventions In The Internet Including The Tesla Coil And Using A Orgone Mechanism. If There Are Sites To Get Started I Would Be Very Happy.
Ps: Anything That Is Hard To Build I Would Really Appreciate It. I Have To Start Somewhere.
You would need to first list sources of energy. Some sources of energy that come to my mind are:
Most of the energy if not all of it that we use comes from either the sun, nuclear reactions, earth's core temperature or gravity (I say gravity because sea waves are produced by gravity), and all of the derivatives of the mentioned sources, such as wind, fossil fuels, alcohol, etc.
Energy consumption is a very worrysome matter, because we are consuming massive amounts of energy, so we must find sources of energy.
It is not very likely that you would build a nuclear reactor outside your house.
You could investigate about electricity generators that are powered with fossil fuels such as gasoline, diesel but, we will at some point end with fossil fuel reservoirs.
A very viable source of energy is extracting energy from the sun. Energy extractable from plants and animals come indirectly from the sun in a very inefficient process. One of the most efficient processes to extract energy from plants is using sugar cane, we can extract more or less 11% of the energy that hits the sugar canes.
Scientists are developing technology to extract energy from the sun in a more efficient fashion. With solar panels, they have under controlled conditions, extracted up to more or less 25% of the energy that hits the solar panels, and more or less 15% in practical situations.
"Orgone" energy sounds to fantasy like, and tesla coils are not viable to generate electricity.
I hope this info helps you in some way.
Are Solar Panels Really Expensive? And Would They Power Your Whole House?
The Ones You Stick On The Roof To Save Energy
The upfront cost of solar panel installation is steep but there are many federal and individual state incentives that cut into that large lump sum (incentives+tax rebates alone can save you around 40% of the upfront costs).
Depending on your location and size of the system you are able to install you can technically power your whole house. Realistically, in some seasons you will produce more energy than in others but as a homeowner attached to the grid, if you produce surplus energy from your panels you can sell that power back to the utility company and make money back that way.
If the cost is what's scaring you away there are also many companies that extend PPAs (Power Purchase Agreements) to homeowners just for use of their property to produce solar power. In those cases, the company will cover 100% of the installation and related costs and you would enter into a contract with the company to buy the power at a certain price (lower than the electric company's rate) to hedge against the rising energy prices. All in all there are many options these days.
One company I've found to be very helpful is Global Solar Center (http://www.globalsolarcenter.com/). They will provide a complete solar quote breaking down everything from eligible rebates and other incentives and determines your estimated payback period totally free of charge. If you're serious about going solar I would recommend going to link and receive their professional advice about the best course of action. Hope this helps.
How To Tie Small Solar Panel System Into My House'S Electircal System?
Is It As Simple As Buying The Panels, An Inverter And Plugging It Into A Wall-Socket, Assuming It Would Just Send Power Back Into The Outlet And Supplement My House'S Electrical Usage, Or... Is It Not That Simple?
Remember, I'M Talking About A Small System, And I Don'T Care How Little Power It'D Make, Or How Uneconomical It Would Be.
"How to tie small solar panel system into my house's electircal system?"
It's very complicated. Just for starters, if you plugged your solar panel into your electrical outlet, you would probably see smoke and fire, not electricity.
Of course anything CAN be done. But this one is truly unfeasible at the consumer level. The only way to send power back into a live system is to synchronize the phase voltages. In your case you would require the solar panels, a battery backup system, a voltage inverter and some type of industrial synchronizer (probably a generator) so you could sync your inverter output to the utilities output.
Solar is still more of a standby or supplemental type power at this time. The easiest way is to supplement your hot water by using solar panels to heat water rather than create electricity. If money was not much of an option then you could theoretically run your whole house without the need for any synchronization but have a gasoline or diesel generator to keep your battery pack topped up when needed.
Is It Safe For My Health To Have Solar Panels Installed Over My Bedroom'S Roof?
Solar panels are installed in homes and business all the time with no health effects that I have heard of.
I work for a general contractor and right now we are building a "Green Building" with solar panels. The panels collect solar energy and transfer the energy through regular electric cabling down to a breaker. Just like how the electricity comes off the street into your house.
They do not emit any exhaust or radiation. And you are conserving energy to help the environment! :)
What are you planning to power with the panels?
Take a look at this website with FAQ's about panels:
Good Luck! :)
Why Don'T More Cars Use Solar Panels To Increase Energy Efficiency?
For Instance, Solar Panels On The Roof Could Give Much Needed Energy To Take Some Stress Off Of The Car Battery. And Also, What About Wind Power? When Driving Down The Highway, Wouldn'T It Be Possible To Use Some Of That Wind Resistance For Power? Any Thoughts On This?
Logistics prevent it- solar panels would not be worth having because of their own size and wind resistance. wind power requires some kind of turbine, and again, the size and where to put it to be useful? maybe in the future, but we don't have it yet.
