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 everyday life: running your ac system, washing clothes, seeing TV, cooking supper. All while reducing 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 home owners find that the convenience, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically lower and even remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a property owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can comprise a big part of your monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create totally 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 reduce your utility costs and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Make a terrific return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the finest ways to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy expense savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electricity costs have increased by approximately 3 percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard against unpredictable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a business or homeowner with fluctuating capital, going solar also assists you much better forecast and handle your expenses.
#4 Boost your home worth
Several research studies have actually found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and sell more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated 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 component of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price changes in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar market added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent method to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A typical residential solar panel system will remove 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are necessary parts of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding services that choose to operate properly. Companies are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of customer purchasing choices, creating goodwill and improving service outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Many property owners decide to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
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 infamous for their fluctuating and undependable electricity costs. There is plainly an upward trend.
With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can determine how much electrical energy will be created, and most importantly, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty 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.

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
How To Design A Solar Panel To Store Energy And Convert It Into Electrical Energy?
First Of All, To Be Honest I Have Totally No Idea On How A Solar Panel Works.
My Task Is To Design Something Like A Solar Powered Street Lamp Which Store Sun Energy During Day Time And Convert It Into Electrical Energy Then Light Energy So That The Lamp Can Work During Night Time.
Any Ideas On How To Design The Solar Panel? Which Can Store Enough Or More Enegry In Case There Is No Sunlight Another Day. And Low Cost As Well :D
solar panels change light into electricity, and do NOT store power.
You need a solar panel capable of enough power to keep the light on all night. And that may be 6 hours of sun and 12 hours of dark.
Then you need a set of batteries large enough to hold that energy. And a charge controller to regulate the charge into the batteries. And then a light that will operate on the battery voltage, say 12 volts.
This is probably not practical due to the large solar panel required, and the large batteries. But here is a few numbers. Assume a 100 watt light at 12 volts. Assume you get at least 6 hours of sun every day and the light will be on for 12 hours. That means the battery has to store 100*12=1200 watt hours. divide by 12 and that is 100 amp-hours, a large auto battery size.
Allowing for 20% losses in the battery and circuitry, that means you nee 1400 watt hours from the solar panel. Since it has 4 hours to operate, that means it has to deliver 1400/4 = 350 watts at 15 volts.
So there it is: 350 watt panel
100 amp hour battery
charge controller sized for above
100 watt light.
If you have to allow for a day with no sun, then you need more batteries. Two nights means 2400 watt-hours, two batteries, a larger charge controller and a 2800/4 = 700 watt panel.
cost: $400 for batteries
$200 for charge controller
$2000 for panel
Why Aren'T Electronics Made With Solar Panels?
Aren'T Batteries Bad For The Environment?
With Small Solar Panels Phones, Ipod'S, Laptops & Other Small Electronics Could Be Smaller, Slimmer, More Efficient & Cost People Less To Charge Every Day. Maybe A Small Battery Inside As A Backup And To Store The Solar Energy For Night Time. But Overall, Batteries Should Be Optional.
So Big Question:
Why Aren'T Electronics Being Produced With Solar Panels?
Cost and and it would be inconvenient to the consumer in this "Gotta have instant gratification" society. take the amount of money you paid for your MP3 player- double it- would you still have bought it at that price? That IS what happens when you add in a 2 to 10 dollar component.
Besides- the energy required for most items you cite- a solar panel makes it not portable.
While you might be able to arbittrarily decide to go without an MP3 player for 24 hours, could you do it for a week? How about your cell phone? It uses more power- so go without it for 2 weeks.
You still need batteries to be charged by solar panels due to one major flaw of solar panels- they do not work in the dark.
So in effect all you are really doing is weighing the device down with a solar panel, and you still have not gotten away from a need for a battery.
I don't know about you, but I have an MP3 player about the diameter of a 50 cent piece- where are you going to put the solar panel????? It will not have enough power to operate the device, and marginal at best for charginthe battery which would take hours instead of the minutes it takes connected to a USB port.
How Much Area Is Required To Build 10 Solar Panels?
My panels are approx. 2'x4', so you would need 80 sf for 10.
Why Is A Silvered Surface Is Used At The Back Of A Solar Panel?
One of the enemies of PVC solar panels is heat and the silver reflects some of the heat away, but not all solar panels are silver they deal with heat other ways.
How Do You Store Energy Using A Solar Panel?
I Want To Know How You Can Store Energy Using A Solar Panel. The Energy Stored Needs To Be Stored So That A Light Or Laptop Charger Can Plug In To It.
Solar panel is not a energy storing device, rather it converts light energy to electrical energy and this energy either can directly used to run instruments or can be fed to battery for storing.
The working of the solar panel is like the inverse action of a LED, i.e. a LED converts electrical energy in to light where as a solar panel converts light energy in to electrical energy, basically it is a P-N junction diode.
