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 everyday life: running your a/c, cleaning clothing, watching TV, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, numerous home owners discover that the benefit, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Leading Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly minimize or perhaps remove your electric expenses
Whether you're a homeowner, company, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can make up a large part of your month-to-month expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll create 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 reduce your energy bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy bill savings, the average American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the previous ten years, residential electricity rates have actually increased by approximately three percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and protect versus unpredictable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're an organisation or property owner with ever-changing money circulation, going solar likewise assists you better projection and handle your expenses.
#4 Boost your house worth
Multiple studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, demand for 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 self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market added 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. Because solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A common property solar panel system will get rid of three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are essential elements of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that decide to operate properly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of consumer getting decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no money down.
Many homeowners opt to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This means that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar provider 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 energy companies are notorious for their changing and undependable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can determine how much electrical energy will be generated, and most notably, at what rate, 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
Is Solar Power A Viable Source Of Energy? Is It Renewable?
Let'S Say Almost All The &Quot;Free&Quot; Energies Like Coal And Oil And Nuclear Dried Up Tomorrow. Would We Be Able To Make Solar Panels From The Energy We Have Incoming, And Produce An Net Gain Of Energy Coming In?
Is solar power a viable source of energy? Without coal and oil and nuclear we would be in real trouble. All that would be left is hydro, wind, wood and solar. Modern agriculture depends on fertilizer. World trade depends on oil to power our ships. Billions of people would die if we suddenly lost coal and oil and nuclear. Sure solar would be viable when all the cheaper sources of energy are taken off the table.
How Many Hours Of Direst Sunlight Would It Take For A 5Watt Solar Panel To Charge A 18Ah Battery?
A certain amount of information is missing - the voltage of the battery and the voltage of the cell, and then the capacity of the battery. Example: If the battery will put out 18 amps for one hour at 12V, that is 216 watts for one hour.
Most solar panels are rated in peak watts per hour at full sun.
So, let's make some basic assumptions as follows:
a) the charging is 100% efficient.
b) The voltages are compatible, and nominally 12V.
c) The battery discharges only to 20%, not 100% (usually a full discharge will damage a lead-acid battery, as well as some other configurations)
So, 80% of 216 watts is ~173 watts.
173 watts/5 watts per hour = 34.56 hours AT DIRECT SUNLIGHT.
Unless you are at the equator, and/or use a tracker, direct sunlight is about 2.5 hours per day. So, nearly 14 days.
Solar Panels And Supplementing Your Ac Power Source.?
Ok So How Do These Solar Panels Supplement The Ac From The Grid? Like Do They Invert The Output Of The Solar Panels And Sync Two Ac Sources Together? If So How And With What? Or Do They Convert The Ac From The Grid To Dc And Then Supplement And Then Invert It? If So How And With What? Thanks
The answer to your question is an "inverter." Solar panels produce DC electricity, so the inverter is like a transformer; it converts the DC to AC so that your house can use it the power. The inverter is connected to your meter which is where your house is connected to the grid. For this particular type of application, you would use a "grid-tied inverter." This type allows seamless use from the grid or the solar panels. At night, your house will pull from the grid. During the day, the inverter will power your house from the panels.
Usually you produce so much from the panels during the day that your meter will spin backwards and send electricity back to the grid (to your neighbors, essentially). If your installer has sized your system correctly, your meter will spin far enough backwards during the day that it will spin forward the same amount at night, with a net use of ZERO electricity from the grid.
Here is some more information about inverters:

Are Solar Panels Actually Efficient?
I Know What They Do And How They Work, But At This Point They're Expensive, Don't Always Produce Enough Electricity As Needed, And Can't Be Used When There's No Sun, As In Half The Day. Wouldn't Wind Power Seem So More Efficient? Or If They Do Use Solar Panels, How About Putting Them In The Desert. But I Really Believe That Research Money Should Go To Fusion Generators Since That's The Future And The Answer To Our Problems. Which Is Best In Your Opinion?
There is not a yes or no answer. But for the majority of the population it is a definite no. Because the energy needed to make a solar panel is more than the energy that a solar panel can return in its life time.
so No for cities and urbanized areas because there is already existing infrastructure therefore you'll be wasting more energy getting them installed. And it is better and more efficient to have the more common energy sources for populated areas.
However that being said it would be more efficient if you live in a remote area as it would not be worth it to build a huge electricity grid just to power one small house in the middle of no where.
Is This A Good Solar System Set Up?
Her Is A List I Put Togeather On Amazon. I Want 4 100W Panels And 4 Of The $60 Batteries. I Don'T Want To Buy The $200 If I Don'T Have To
I think, it is good. A 200 watt MPPT system produces the same amount of power a 300 watt panel with PWM. With PWM controllers you have to use expensive battery type solar panels which are roughly twice as much as Grid Tied Panels. Also 200 watt Grid Tied Panel with a 20 amp MPPT controller will cost you around $450 and 300 watt battery panel with 15 amp PWM controller is going to cost around $650.
