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 property owner to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning system, cleaning clothing, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are substantial, numerous homeowners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably decrease and even eliminate your electrical expenses
Whether you're a house owner, business, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can make up a big part of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your utility expenses and you'll still save a lot of money.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the finest ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy bill cost savings, the average American homeowner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, property electricity prices have actually gone up by approximately three percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're an organisation or house owner with fluctuating cash flow, going solar also helps you much better forecast and manage your costs.
#4 Boost your home value
Numerous studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and sell more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, need for homes equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key part of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included 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 growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A common residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to four heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are essential parts of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that opt to run properly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of customer purchasing decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Numerous property owners decide to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility companies are well-known for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can compute just how much electricity will be generated, and most notably, at exactly what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).
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

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
Can Solar Panels Be Installed On The &Quot;Peak&Quot; Of A Roof?
If The Sides Of My Roof Run South To North, (Sides Facing East, West) And Therefore I Don'T Have Any Side That Are Facing South.....Can I Still Have Solar Panels Installed Somehow? And Can They Be Installed On The Peak Of The Roof?
South facing is the preferred way to place them to get the most sunlight energy.
The normal pannels are approxiamately 4' x 2'. And can be installed almost anywhere on the roof.
The main problem is to limit wind energy off of it.
There is two wind problems wind load (the force exerted on the roof if it gets close to cruching the roof or exceeds it in windy areas). The other if to much wind gets under the panels they will try to lift off like a kite.
First you need a solar evaluation to see where is the best place to place the solar panels based on shading from trees, land scaping, or tall buildings etc.... Shading can cause the solar panel to loose voltage, and get to zero voltage if shaded enough.
Then you need to check with your state and the federal government for financial help. They can help provide up to 30% or in tax incentives.
What Is The Power Of A Solar Panel Measured In (Units). And How Many Units To Heat 1 Cu M By 1 Degree F?
We Need To Heat A Communal Swimming Pool In Spain By A Couple Of Degrees. To This End We Need To Know Which Is The Best 'Value For Money' Product, I.E. Effective Heating Against Cost.
I don't have a technical answer, but know that for our community pool in California, we have solar panels that cover the entire roof of the clubhouse - about twice the surface area of the pool. This could be heating water for showers, too, though - I'm not sure.
What Are Solar Panels?
A solar panel is a device that collects and converts solar energy into electricity or heat which can be used by (for example) nearby buildings. Solar photovoltaic panels can be made so that the sun's energy excites the atoms in a silicon layer between two protector panels. Electrons from these excited atoms form an electric current, which can be used by external devices. Solar panels were in use over one hundred years ago for water heating in homes. Solar panels can also be made with a specially shaped mirror that concentrates light onto a tube of oil. The oil then heats up, and travels through a vat of water, instantly boiling it. The steam created turns a turbine for power.
The basic element of solar panels is pure silicon. When stripped of impurities, silicon makes an ideal neutral platform for transmission of electrons. In silicon’s natural state, it carries four electrons, but has room for eight. Therefore silicon has room for four more electrons. If a silicon atom comes in contact with another silicon atom, each receives the other atom's four electrons. Eight electrons satisfy the atoms' needs, this creates a strong bond, but there is no positive or negative charge. Silicon atoms combine for years to produce a large piece of pure silicon. This material is used on the plates of solar panels. Combining silicon with other elements that have a positive or negative charge can also create solar panels.
What Are Solar Panels Made Of?
(For A Project)
I Know They Are Made Of Silicon, But I Want To Everything They Are Made Of. Ex Metal (What Kind)
Please Tell Me Everything Used From Their Production To The Finished Project
Well i am not sure but to my knowledge all i know is that the purpose is to save solar cells which are later created into energy
Solar energy is generated from solar panels. Solar panels are slabs of semi-conductor metal. Technically speaking, they are a slab of silicon semi-conductor doped or added with impurities to make it a better conductor. Solar panels could also be made of Gallium Arsenide which is a semi-conductor metal exclusively used in photo-voltaic cells.
The silicon slabs are polished and glossed before doping. After processing, for protection, a thin glass layer is embossed on the solar cells slab. Silicon also is shiny and reflects about 35% of sunlight. Hence, an anti-reflective coating is usually applied over the slabs to reduce the amount of sunlight lost. Amorphous silicon solar panels are different from the traditional ones made from silicon slabs. Amorphous silicon solar cells are thinner and more efficient that the silicon ones and also the materials cost of this variety is far lesser than the traditional. Amorphous silicon slabs are developed with superior processes which makes them less susceptible to breakage during transportation. This makes them a more viable investment when it comes to buying solar panels.
How Do Solar Panels Help Is To Use Less Fossil Fuels?
Stuck On My Homework?, Please Help!
There are 2 types of solar panels, one is used for heating water the other for producing electricity.
In both cases the use of solar panels allows us to harness the power from the sun and use the energy where otherwise we would be using electricity from a mains source. this electricity coming from a power station often uses Coal, Oil or natural gas to power it, Therefore by using solar energy we reduce the amount of fossil fuel we use.
Solar cells can also be used to power other things and work is going on to try and find an efficient solar power vehicle, this would reduce our use of oil in the form of petrol and diesel.
Solar panels can be large or small, portable ones are available for charging Ipods, mobile phones etc. all reducing our dependence on fossil fuels further.
