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 homeowner to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothing, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, numerous residents discover that the benefit, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly lower or even remove your electrical expenses
Whether you're a house owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can make up a big part of your regular monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your utility expenses and you'll still save a lot of money.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity bill cost savings, the typical American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against increasing energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the past ten years, property electricity rates have actually gone up by an average of three percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and protect against unforeseeable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a service or house owner with rising and falling capital, going solar also helps you much better projection and handle your expenses.
#4 Boost your home value
Multiple research studies have actually discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater home worths and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, need for homes geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate variations in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is anticipated 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 United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent method to minimize 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 domestic photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are essential components of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that opt to run properly. Services are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective driver of consumer acquiring decisions, developing goodwill and improving company outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Many house owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You just 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 companies are notorious for their changing and undependable electrical energy rates. There is plainly an upward trend.
With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can compute how much electricity will be created, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of 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
- 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
What Type Of Solar System Would I Need To Run Three Window Air Conditioners?
I Have Three 5200 Btu Air Conditioners That I Would Like To Run Strictly On Solar Power. Here Are The Specs For The Air Conditioners Which Are All The Same.
Cooling Amps: 4.5; Cooling Wattage 475; Killowatt Hours Per Year 356; 110/120 Volts
Remember To Multiply These Numbers By 3 Because I Have Three Running At Once For About 8 Hours Per Day, 2 Months Out Of The Year.
Hey Michael, I see you are still at it! Good for you!
The system you seek will cost you more than you will ever recover in savings by not paying for the juice. There was a company that Oboma crammed our trust into called Solyndra. Take a peak at the wiki link below and you will see some of the complications and troubles with solar panels. Nothing is free and solar panels have multiple sucking holes for your pocket book.
Every time energy is converted there is a severe loss. Here is a list of those transfer conversions:
Thought to reality being the greatest of all!
Light to electric.
Direct current to alternating current, with cu rent regulation control.
Each air conditioner should have its own un-interuptable power supply (UPS). Each supply should be rated to handle twice what its air conditioner requires, otherwise it will not last. Give each UPS its own solar panel to refill its batteries in 4 hours. Keep a technician on retainer to keep it all clean and running.
Now you can see why a lot of people have not grabbed this brass ring. Those that do, bleed green

Solar Panel Roofing?
I Need A New Roof Soon And I Was Wondering What The Difference In Cost Would Be From A Standard Shingle Roof To A Roof Including Solar Panels. Does Anyone Know The Cost Difference?
The solar panels are very expensive to provide much power. If u go that way do not skimp on the support as a high wind will blow them away. In Ecuador I put in a remote site for communications. It was working good when a Strong wind blew $10.000 worth of solar panels all over the jungle.
