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 resident to use the sun to power daily life: running your ac system, washing clothes, viewing TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing 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 home owners discover that the benefit, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably reduce or even remove your electric expenses
Whether you're a property owner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can comprise a large part of your regular monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic 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 consume, solar will decrease your energy costs and you'll still save a great deal of loan.
#2 Make a great return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity costs savings, the typical American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical power rates have increased by approximately 3 percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and protect against unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a business or property owner with ever-changing capital, going solar also helps you much better projection and handle your expenditures.
#4 Boost your house value
Multiple research studies have actually found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher property worths and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly 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 informed about solar, need for homes geared up 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 component of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost changes in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry added jobs at a rate nearly 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. Since solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is an excellent method to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A typical property solar panel system will remove 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are necessary elements of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding organisations that decide to operate properly. Organisations are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of consumer acquiring decisions, 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 house owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Lots of homeowners pick to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This means that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- 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 notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can determine what does it cost? electricity will be produced, and most notably, at what price, for at least 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

- 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 Is Conserving Energy Important For Our Country(Us)?
Also, What Is Our Country(Us) Doing To Conserve Energy? And If It Is Not Explain That To.
It is important because energy use causes pollution. Conservation of energy would also lead to the US being less dependent on foreign countries. The US has initiatives for people who install solar panels, low energy Appliances(Dish washer, Washing machines, Dryers, etc..)also there has been millions in alternative research.
What Will Make A Major Reduction In My Heating Costs This Winter?
I Have Taken The First Steps To Conserve Heat And Cut Down On Electricity: Switched To All Florescent Bulbs,Foam Insulate All Cracks, Caulk And Seal Around All Doors And Windows, Open Drapes On Full Sun Windows During The Day And Close At Night, Eliminate Air Leaks, Insulate And Seal Duct Work, Turn Off Vents In Unused Rooms, Programmable Thermostat, Thermostat At 65 And Always Wear Warm Clothes, Don't Use Exhaust Fans, Etc.
I've Been Reading About Eco Heaters, Quartz Infrared Portable Heaters And Corn And Pellet Stoves. Until The Price Of Installing Solar Panels Comes Down, Are There Proven Alternatives That Would Be Affordable And Effective To Save On Energy Costs This Winter?
You have a real good start here. If your attic insulation is not up to R50 yet do that first.
The quartz infrared heaters are all hype. They are mostly electrical resistance heaters with a new name so they sound eco friendly.
On the fireplace... an insert is a good idea if you have a steady supply of fuel for it (wood, corn, pellets, etc). However most of the good quality insert manufacturers are already running 4-5 months behind on filling their orders, so you may want to just get a chimney balloon and plug the flue air tight for this winter. Don't just count on your metal damper to keep out the cold. They are usually all warped, sooty and ineffective. get that flue sealed up tight. But, DO NOT use the fireplace! What you have read about fireplaces using more heat than they generate is absolutely true. They are wood toilets! If you start using your fireplace your heating bill will go up without a doubt.
If your basement is not finished yet you can get some aluminum tape and tape the vent seams, you will be surprised what a difference this step makes. Often rooms that are hard to heat become warmer when you do this.
Is Starting An Online Store For Solar Panels A Good Business Idea?
Given That Green Energies Grow In Demand Every Month - Will It Be A Good Idea To Sell Solar Panels Online? My Major Concern Is Whether People Will &Quot;Have&Quot; The Habit Of Buying Such Things Online...I Mean People Are Now Used To Buy Books, Electronics, Cds Online - But Not Sure About Renewable Energy - It'S Like Trying To Convince People That Buying Cars Online Is A Good And A Safe Choice. Another Problem Is That Many People Will Also Need Assistance On How To Install The Panels On Their Roofs...It'S Not Like Buying A Sony Vaio. Finally, Most People Aren'T Willing To Spend More Than $1000-$2000 Usd Per Order Online...However You Won'T Accomplish Much With That Amount Of Money For Solar Energy...That Is...I Have Made Many Calculations And In Every Case System Needed To Fully Power An Average Household Will Be $15K+. On The Other Hand, Competition Isn'T That Intense - Like You Will Find Several Not Well Known Websites Selling Solar Products...Last But Not Least Let'S Nto Forget The Major Advantage: Solar Energy Saves You 40% Or More On Your Utility Bill. Can'T Say...If I Were To Buy Solar Panels I Will Most Likely Check At Walmart Or Some Local Store Or...Call Some Company That Offers Installation And Free Side Evaluation. Surely, Green Energy, Space Tourism, Robotics Etc. All Have Huge Business Potential But Placing Myself To Get Piece Of The Buy Seems Hard As Hell. 10X!
The market for solar panels is more like the market for plumbing supplies and building materials than a direct to consumer market. If a consumer wants PV solar panels, he would hire a contractor who would then purchase them from his suppliers. Much as you don't see people buying roof shingles from Amazon (well maybe someone does), you're not likely to see a lot of people buy solar panels directly. There is a lot of inefficiency in supply chains of building supplies so there is a lot of financial incentive for providing a direct to the manufacturer channel but it will be more likely be through something like home depot then a standalone online store.
Height Adjustable Roof Racks For Solar Panels?
I Need A Quick Idea To Adjust The Height Of Roof Racks For A Solar Panel Mounted On Top Of A Van.
I Imagine It To Be An Accordion Folding Device That Can Be Lifted And Lowered To Maintain Its Position. I Designed An Image Of What I Am Looking For Using Design Software At The Site Listed Below, Anybody Have An Idea Of Things I Could Do To Make This Happen? Http://Www.Answersforsolarpanel.Piczo.Com
doesn't look too useful to me.
First of all, solar panels are very expensive, what are you doing to prevent it from being stolen?
Second, this pivots only a small angle in one direction. You need two degrees of freedom and the ability to pivot to at least 45 degrees in any of 4 different directions.
Third, the added wind resistance when raised will offset any power gained.
Fourth, what is controlling the adjustments?
I Would Like Some Info On Solar Panels And Wind Generators...Please?
Does Anyone Own Any And Would You Recommend Them? Right Now I Only Own Solar Stake Lights And I Use Them During The Summer In My Yard. But During The Winter I Take Them Out Because They Don'T Charge Well.
I Live In Toronto Canada Where It Snows A Lot During The Winter, Would It Even Be Worth It To Buy Solar Panels? Would They Get Covered With Snow If The Were Mounted On My Roof And Get Ruined?
I Plan On Buying Some When I Purchase My Own Home.
Any Info Would Be Appreciated:)
I know a few people who use solar in Canada and seem to be pretty happy with it. The snow is not as big of a deal as you might think. The more north you live the more of an angle you have the panels on so the better the snow slides off. Plus they are black in color which heats up and melts the snow and ice pretty fast. Mine do..
Snow and rain will not hurt your solar panels. But if you do get a lot of snow yearly in your area you should mount the panels closer to the ground so you can take broom to the snow if needed.
The colder and the brighter the light the better solar electric works.
Check out this how to. http://www.oynot.com/grid-tie-only-how-t... to size a system for your home. There is a link on the page to a world solar insolation map so you know how many sun hours you have per day on an avg. Should not take you more then a half hour to get a good idea of what it will cost you and which package system should work.
Good luck on going green and don't let the Oil and Nuke people bring you down. They are just looseing money when you make your own power and their nuke power plant goes off line and not replaced.
Some one above said solar cost more.. That is not true. I don't know about other countries but here the cost of living is about 3.5% per year so it is compounded each year. Then there is the rise in fuel cost which is 6.5% per year which will increase. But think about it you are buying 30 years of electric for 34000 dollars. If your electric bill was at current prices 100 dollars a month you would pay 36,000 dollars in 30 years. Now add in the 3.5% cost of living compounded each year for 30 years and the fuel increses . You will pay the public utilie 100,000 in that time frame
