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 utilize the sun to power daily life: running your ac system, cleaning clothing, watching TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, many home owners discover that the convenience, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically lower or perhaps remove your electrical bills
Whether you're a property owner, company, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a large portion of your month-to-month expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your utility bills and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power bill savings, the average American homeowner pays off 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 photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical power costs have actually increased by an average of three percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure versus unpredictable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a business or homeowner with ever-changing money circulation, going solar also helps you better forecast and manage your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home or business worth
Numerous research studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher home worths and offer quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations 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 residential or commercial properties 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 a key component of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price changes in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is an excellent method to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A normal property solar panel system will remove 3 to 4 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 obligation are essential parts of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that select to run responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective driver of consumer acquiring decisions, creating goodwill and improving service results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Numerous property owners pick to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar company for electricity-- 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 energy business are well-known for their varying and unreliable electricity prices. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can compute how much electrical energy will be created, and most notably, at exactly what price, for at least the next 20 years (repaired 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

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
Is There A Way To Charge Solar Panels Without Sunlight - I Know This Is A Strange Question But Please Humor Me?
I'M Talking About Very Small Solar Panels On A Couple Of Lighthouses Intended For The Garden, But I'M Keeping Them Inside. They Need To &Quot;Charge&Quot; So The Light Will Spin At Night. I Keep Them By The Window, But They'Re Still Not Getting Enough Sunlight. Keeping Them Outside Is Not An Option.
well you could set up a UV lamp or something.. but why not hook up a battery to keep it powered at night?
Trying To Charge A 12V Battery With A Solar Panel?
Im Trying To Charge A 12V Battery With A Solar Panel But I Only Have A 2 Inch By 2 Inch Space To Place A Solar Panel. Does Anyone Have Any Ideas
I don't think you can build or find a solar panel that would fit in such a small space, even if you were dealing with very low current. The only workaround I can think of would be to build a foldable solar panel that would deliver enough current to charge the battery. And attach one end of it to the box lid. But you'd have to be careful to make sure that folding and unfolding won't break the cells. Or the weight of it folded up won't break it.
FYI, I have a very small and compact 6V solar panel that delivers 340ma. And it takes up more than 2x2 inches.
Backup Batteries And Solar Power?
Hello All, Thanks For Stopping By,
I Have Some Questions Regarding A Backup Battery, Specifically The Duracell Dpp-600Hd Powerpack 600 Jump Starter & Emergency Power Source With Radio:
I Was Thinking About Buying This, As Well As A Portable Solar Panel. Now For The Questions;
Has Anyone Used This Battery, And If So What Are Your Results?
Can Anyone Suggest A Good Quality Solar Panel To Use With This Battery?
How Difficult Is Setting Up Other Power Sources To Use With These Types Of Battery? Specifically, If I Have A Dc Motor That I Have Rigged Up With A Bicycle As A Generator, Could This Store The Energy I Produce?
Feel Free To Answer, Or Ask Questions About My Question If You Feel I Have Not Been Clear In My Inquiry.
Thank You All!
Just get one of those 10 or 15 watt panels you should be able to get where you buy that pack.
It should charge it in around four good solar days.
So long as you can regualte the voltage to around 14V, and use a blocking diode to keep battery back feeding into the charger, you should be fine.
I don't have one of those packs, instead I have a straight 35Ah AGM cell with a 15 watt PV panel, charge controller, and 400W inverter. The system so far has mostly kept up with my nighly use (1/2 hr/night, around 100W CF lighting).
Why Are You Against Green Or Environmentalist Thinking?
I Am Just Trying To Understand Why Some People Are So Vehemently Opposed To Doing And Using &Quot;Green&Quot; Things That Help The Environment.
I Just Don'T Understand Why... It Saves Money, It Saves The Environment And It Helps To Reduce Pollution. Regardless Of Weather Or Not You &Quot;Believe&Quot; In Global Warming (As If It Is A Religion) Do People Still Not See All Of The Positive Benefits Of Using Green Products And Building Green Leed Certified Homes And Buildings?
I'M Really Confused And Would Like Real Answers From Real People Who Are Against Environmentalism.
It's not that I'm against the concept of being more 'green', it's just that I evaluate what is being proposed and make up my own mind.
For example, do you know that:
1. It takes almost as much energy to run a large scale ethanol plant as it produces?
2. There is going to be a huge shortage of corn and other grains because of the demand for ethanol?
3. "Mr. Green", Algore, claims to be carbon neutral, but has many homes that need to be lit, heated and cooled; drives around in gas guzzlers, flies in private air planes?
Solar Panel/Light For 10X10 Shed?
I'M Looking For A Led Light With A Solar Panel For My Shed So I Can See. Anyone Know Of One Or How To Make One?
might i make a suggestion?
how 'bout a skylight.
works better (no components to break).
works for more of the day.
in fact, i have a 10" one that's bright enough that i often look for the light switch to turn it off.
Edit: If you get a light tunnel, get one with straight sides, not one that bends. You get more light through with fewer reflections. The "bendy" ones tend to reflect light back up, rather than down. The straight ones are just brighter.
