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 everyday life: running your air conditioner, washing clothes, seeing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while minimizing 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 significant, lots of property owners find that the convenience, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly minimize or perhaps remove your electric expenses
Whether you're a house owner, company, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can comprise a large part of your regular monthly costs. With a photovoltaic 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 take in, solar will lower your energy costs and you'll still conserve a lot of money.
#2 Make a great return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the finest ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity costs cost savings, the typical American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical power costs have increased by approximately 3 percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unpredictable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a business or homeowner with rising and falling capital, going solar also helps you better projection and manage your costs.
#4 Boost your home or business value
Numerous studies have discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and offer quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for 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 element of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate changes in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry added jobs 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 anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a great method to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A common domestic photovoltaic panel system will remove three to 4 heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are very important elements of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that decide to operate responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of customer getting decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving 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 cash down.
Numerous homeowners pick to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy 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 well-known for their fluctuating and undependable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward trend.
With solar panels and basic math, we can calculate how much electrical energy will be created, and most notably, at what cost, for at least the next 20 years (fixed 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
- 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
- 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
Where Can I Buy New Sheet Like Solar Panel?
I Am Going To Be Buying House Within 3 Years And When I Do I Am Planning To Setup Solar Panels. Right Now Solar Panels Are Bulky Expensive And Not Even Efficient. But When I Watch Discover Or Science Channel They Show Me That There Are Very Cheap And Efficient Solar Panel That Is Like A Sheet Developed And Now Manufacturing. I Looked Up But I Could Not Find Find Where They Sell Them. Do Anyone Know They Sell The New Solar Panel? If Not When Do You Think It Will Be Sold To Consumers?
The sheet like solar panel you are describing is called Thin Film Photo Voltaics or TFPV for short. The Brunton Solaroll is a portable version of it. I believe a company called INNOVALIGHT is developing/manufacturing it. Unfortunately they do not seem to be selling it as of yet.
What Color Spectrum Does Solar Panels Except.?
Solar panels *accept* all incoming energy from the sunlight. They can only make use of specific wavelengths for electrical generation while the rest is either re-emitted or absorbed as heat energy.
Since most of the energy from the sun lies in the infrared, visible, and ultraviolet area of the Electromagnetic spectrum, photovoltaic cells (normal solar panels) are designed to convert these wavelengths over to electricity as efficiently as possible. (Commonly just absorb visible and ultraviolet light, as infrared is more difficult to absorb.)
Some wavelengths the solar panel cannot convert to electricity. These are either reflected like a mirror or absorbed as heat. An example: your arm in the sun. It appears tan because it reflects only certain orange/red pigments from the white sunlight, and warms up because it absorbs the blue and green colors. A white flower reflects ultraviolet light and visible light to attract more insects and stay cooler. A good solar panel appears "black" because it absorbs all of these different colors.
What Size Of Solar Panels Do I Need To Charge 3 12V Batteries?
I Need This For My Semi Truck
you need 3 panels, with 3 diodes that will limit the voltage to 12 volts most of the solar panels give 10 to 17 volts, if the day is very sunny a small panel will take 10 hours or more to charge
a big panel will take less time,
same with battery's if big , it will take longer you have to multiply the current amps per hour by the sunlight hours, that is the total current you will get
lets say you get 5 amps and 10 hours of light that is 50 amps most batteries take 55 amps,
if the battery is death i am sure they are not all the way down
3.5 amps panle
best panel more current
Harbor Freight Solar Panels ?
Any Opinion On Harbor Freight Solar Panels ?
Yes -- don't buy them.
They are low quality solar panels, and the e-z kit they sell produces barely enough power for a lightbulb.
The kit they commonly sell is a good child's science fair experiment/project, but do not expect to get your money's worth in solar power.
If you are attempting to self-teach yourself on solar panels, this might be a good starting point, if not also a little expensive.
But again, do not purchase Harbor Freight solar panels, or their e-z kit.
If you are serious about getting into solar panels, there are distributors who will gladly talk to you about what kind of solar panels you will need for a regular house (hint: it is actually a pretty big set of solar panels for even a low power usage home).
How Much Would It Cost To Place Solar Panels On 1,800 Square Feet Of Roof Space?
I Live In Southern California. About 1100 Square Feet Of My Home'S Roof Space Faces Toward South. Another 700 Square Feet Are From A Covered Porch Facing The Same Direction. Where Can I Get A Good Estimate Of The Cost Of Installing And Maintaining A Solar Panel System On My Roof? I Also Want To Know If There Are Any Government Rebates/Incentives Offered.
Once your indoor lighting has been installed you will be able to use the lighting both night and day. During the day you may not need it except on cloudy days. During the night you should have enough energy from the solar power to last you through the night. It is becoming the latest in lighting barns on farms as well because there is no wiring needed to get lighting out to the barn. just the cheapest solar panels and thats all.
