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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioner, cleaning clothes, seeing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while decreasing 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 significant, many 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 Dramatically minimize and even remove your electric expenses
Whether you're a house owner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a big portion of your month-to-month expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll generate 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 decrease your utility bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.
#2 Make a great return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the finest ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy bill savings, the average American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the previous ten years, residential electricity rates have increased by an average of 3 percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect versus unpredictable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a company or property owner with fluctuating capital, going solar also helps you much better forecast and handle your expenses.
#4 Increase your home worth
Numerous research studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and sell faster 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 homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial element of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost changes in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a terrific method to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A typical residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to four heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are essential elements of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that select to operate properly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of consumer acquiring decisions, developing goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Lots of homeowners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility companies are infamous for their changing and unreliable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can determine just how much electrical energy will be created, and most notably, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next 20 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
- 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

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 Many Solar Panels Do I Need To Run My Two Bedroom Townhouse Without Electricity From The Grid?
How Many Solar Panels Do I Need To Run My Two Bedroom Townhouse? Are There Different Solar Panels? How Many Solar Panes To Produced 1 Kw Of Electricity?
The issue is more complicated than you might imagine. You can learn how many kilowatt hours you use from your electric bill. This will be an average, but if you want to be off the grid, you will need a system large enough to deliver the maximum amount you use. This will not be practical, unless you have batteries on the system.
My 6 kW system delivers about 20 kWh per day, in an area where the insolation value (suns energy) is about 5. You can find your area's insolation value on the Internet, under SOLAR INSOLATION.
My installation is situated for maximum utility, in that my ridge runs east and west, and the panels are on the south slope.
Using this information and your utility bill, you should be able to approximate the size system you need.
If your utility has net metering, you may be better off not having batteries, but spend the money on the largest system you can afford. This way you will maximize the amount of savings. Batteries cost money, have to be maintained, must be replaced every few years, and take away from the efficiency of the system.
There are many kinds of solar panels. Look them up on the Internet to learn their characteristics. Keep in mind that the system output will be only about 70 to 75 percent of the rated output. This is due to inefficiencies in system components.
Projects Using Solar Panels?
I Wanna Do My Major Project On Solar Panels...So Anyone Kindly Tell Me The Projects Based On Solar Panels..
I have done this in my project too and a solar panel, two wires, a circuit/project board, an LED light/a small fan,a switch and a solderer. Just solder the wires to the positive and negative parts of the panel, put the wires connected to the panel to the board put the LED's on the other side and the switch together with it shine light on the panel and the light/fan will work.(If it dosen't work, please DO NOT consult ME.)
Can A Harbor Freight Solar Panel Resist Hail?
I Just Bought A Harbor Freight Solar Panel Kit And I Am Concerned About Damage It Might Receive From Weather Conditions. It Appears To Have Some Sort Of Plastic Over The Solar Cells.
I have one up and it hasn't destructed yet. It does what they say. I have it connected to 2 5 volt golf cart gel cells in series. You would need about 20 of them to power most things directly.
I Want To Live On Solar Power..?
I Want Solar Panels On My House But There Are Not Even Worth It Cause It Is So Expensive...
Everything is worth it to save energy and to save the environment. Over a course of 20 or so years, it will be worth it (money wise and environment wise). =D
What To Do To Get 110 Charge Out Of 6,75W-17V Solar Panels?
What Must I Do To Charge 8 4D 12V Batteries With 6, 75W Solar Panels,17V Wired In Series,So They Will Stay Charged For More Than A Month.Can I Put A Stepup Transformer After The Cpu,Pcu With A Voltage Regulator Of Some Kind So When The Sun Shines Bright It Will Give A 110?
A 4d battery is about 150 AH. 8 of them, total 1200 AH. Ideally, you would want to charge these at 5%, of 60A. You could probably get away with 3%, which is 36A.
Those 75W panels, lets say have max power at 15V (a round number), and 5A. With 6 of them, that's still a little light for your battery bank. Can you go with just 4 batteries? Or more/bigger panels? From an array that size, you would get 1, maybe 2 kWh a day. You would need to plan your consumption accordingly.
The device you need is called a charge controller, and you can get it from various solar dealers. Given the size of your battery bank, it's probably best to wire it as 12 volts. To get 110 AC out of it, you need to buy and connect an inverter.
If the batteries are already charged, and all you want to do is maintain them (for example, golf cart batteries in storage), then disregard most of what I said above. You can just get a charge controller. But you won't be able to charge the batteries back up once you drain them.
