About Solar Energy
Solar power is energy from the sun that is transformed into thermal or electrical energy.
Solar power makes it possible for homeowner to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your ac system, cleaning clothes, watching TELEVISION, 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 considerable, lots of home owners discover that the convenience, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically minimize or even remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can make up a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll create free power for your system's whole 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 conserve a lot of loan.
#2 Make an excellent return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power costs savings, the average American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the previous ten years, property electricity costs have actually increased by an average of 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard against unforeseeable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a company or homeowner with fluctuating cash flow, going solar also helps you much better projection and handle your expenses.
#4 Increase your home worth
Several studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key component of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs 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 development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to lower 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 common residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are necessary elements of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Significantly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that decide to operate properly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of customer acquiring choices, producing goodwill and enhancing company outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Many property owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The energy business are notorious for their varying and undependable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can determine what does it cost? electrical energy will be created, and most notably, at what price, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).
What are the various payment options?
- 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

Frequently Asked Questions
Do You Know Where I Can Find A Solar Panel With Outlet Or Power Strip?
I Want To Find A Solar Panel That I Can Carry With Me That Has An Outlet Or Power Strip To It, So I Can Plug In My Slow Cooker On Camping Trips For Potlucks &Amp; The Like. It'D Be Awesome If It Also Had A Cord To Power My Phone/Ipod, But I'M Okay With Buy A Separate Solar Charger For That. Any Help Would Be Great. Thanks.
There isn't one.
Solar panels don't deliver 120 volts AC --
they produce something compatible with 12 volt DC systems and batteries.
Also, you'd need a rather large set of panels to operate a slow cooker via an inverter,
which is a power-wasting intermediary to say the least.
A much better option is a "solar oven" or "solar cooker".
Look those up.
The phone is easier to deal with: all it needs is an ordinary (45 watt or so)
solar panel and a car charger connected to a lighter socket,
although I'd probably connect a 7 Ah gel cell across the panel while I was at it.
Charge A Backup Battery With A Portable Solar Panel.?
I Would Like To Know The Most Efficient Way To Charge A Proporta Usb Turbocharger 5000 With A Goal0 Nomad 7 Solar Panel. Would The 12V Or The Usb The Best Charging Solution? Do I Need To Rig Up Some Sort Of Circuitry To Charge It?
Maybe Two Of These Http://Cgi.Ebay.It/700Ma-Solar-Placa-Panel-Modulo-Cargador-5V-Usb-Bateria-/220737049789?Pt=Lh_Defaultdomain_186&Hash=Item3364f414bd In Parallel Would Be A Better Solution?
Thanks In Advance.
Yes it would work by using a voltage regulator to keep the voltage stable.. Without it the panel voltage will not be controlled when the voltage goes up and down during sunny days, and it could damage your battery. 12v panels can range from 15-20v depending on the panel you have. This is what I did to control the voltage output to my phones and DSL box. My phones require 6v, and my DSL box require 12v. The output should match the input voltage to your device. Here's what they look like, and how to hook them up. You may have to double them if your pack draws more power, they put out about an amp of power, and should be mounted on some metal to dissipate the heat. A 10w 50 ohm ceramic resistor will help as well splicing it in from your panel + to your regulator input +.
I Need To Know How Much Does It Cost To Maintain And Buy Solar Panels?
I Know How Much It Cost To Buy But I Need To Know How Much It Cost To Fix A Solar Panel If: The Glass Falls Off, It Gets Hit By A Massive Dust Storm Then It Rains And The Mud Dries, If There Is A Power Surge And It Gets Itself Fried. I Need This For A Report And If I Dont Get This Info Withen Two Days Im Screwed And Im Doing As Much Research As I Can
For a grid-tied (no battery) system, the most common kind of residential system, there is very little to go wrong with the panels themselves. The likely outcome is that the panels will continue to work for 25 years without any additional care. The standard warranty is 25 years, so if one goes bad, the manufacturer will replace it. That doesn't cover accidents like lightning strikes, but the panels are tough against everyday insults like rain, heat, and hail. Also, where I live, there is a requirement that solar electric systems be installed with a 10-year warranty on everything.
The most likely component in the system to fail is the inverter, a repair or replacement cost of perhaps $2000 after 15 years.
Some homeowners wash their panels for optimum performance, but I'm not sure if it makes a whole lot of difference, as nature washes them with dew and rain. I don't know how much it would cost if you had to pay someone to hose off the panels instead of doing it yourself.
How Do I Repair A Soler Panel On My Own?
How Do I Repair One On My Own Getting Someone Else'S Fix Is Not Possible?
Here's what we've learned so far about repairing broken panels:
The are many possible ways to damage a solar panel. The most common seems to be broken glass, from rocks, bullets, a fall (loose bolts on the mount!) or large hail. If you are able to remove all the broken glass, it might be possible to replace it with a new piece -- but the hard part will keeping water from condensing inside and fogging the new glass. It's also possible the panel will still work even with the broken glass in place, though with reduced output from the 'shade' from the broken glass edges. So don't just just throw the broken panel away -- at least check it for output first!
Another common problem is loose solder connections--some connections are intermittent and cut in and out as the panels heat and cool. You may notice cells cutting in and out if you sharply rap the panels with your hand. It may be necessary to cut through the soft silicone in which the cells are embedded to access the backs of the cells for repair. Windy Dankoff's report, reprinted below, shows how to diagnose which cells have bad connections that must be resoldered.
Individual solar cells are somewhat difficult to solder to. Self-adhesive metal stained-glass tape makes for the easiest soldering job--the tape holds itself in place while you solder. Use electronics solder that contains 2% silver. One side of the cell is (+), the other (-). Cells are connected in various combinations of series and parallel, depending on the intended use--our broken panels are made to be connected with 3 or 4 panels in series to charge 12 volt batteries.
I just wanted you to know that I had read your article dealing with solar cell repair using electrically conductive epoxy. You had one contributor who claimed it would not work. I can categorically assure you that it DOES work. I used a silver impregnated epoxy made by Chemtronics. It is called CircuitWorks Conductive Epoxy and I used it to attach the positive wire to the metallic film of my photo panel and it's electrical conductivity is equal to a normal solder joint, but it works where solder would not. It's strong and waterproof.
