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 a/c unit, cleaning clothes, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, numerous property owners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly reduce and even eliminate your electrical bills
Whether you're a house owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can comprise a large part of your month-to-month expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your energy costs and you'll still conserve a lot of money.
#2 Make an excellent return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy bill savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the past 10 years, residential electrical power rates have gone up by an average of three percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and secure versus unforeseeable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're an organisation or property owner with fluctuating capital, going solar also assists you much better forecast and handle your expenses.
#4 Increase your house value
Several studies have discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater property worths and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential component of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost variations in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A common residential solar panel system will eliminate three to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are essential components of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that decide to run responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of customer buying decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing business 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 money down.
Many house owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This means that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The energy business are well-known for their varying and unreliable electricity costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can compute just how much electricity will be generated, and most notably, at exactly what cost, for at least the next Twenty 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

Frequently Asked Questions
How Can I Power Led Light Strings With A Solar Panel?
I'm Interested In Purchasing Some Led Icicle-Style Light Strings To Go Around The House And Was Thinking It Would Be Nice If They Were Solar Powered To Cut Back Even More On Energy Consumption. I've Seen Icicle-Style Led Strings With A Regular A/C Plug And Single-Strand Led Lights Attached To A Small Solar Panel On A Garden Stake But No Solar Powered Icicle-Style Led Strings. Is There An Easy Way To Get Both The Solar Power Feature And The Style Leds I Want? The Icicle-Style Led Strings Draw About 5W Each And I'm Not Sure How Many I'll Need, Probably 4-6 Strings. Thanks!
Those LED lights use so little power, I'm afraid there is not much to be saved by powering them off solar. If solar was all you had, then it might be worth tinkering, but I'd say just plug them in to the wall, and if you're not using them, turn them off.
1000 Watt Solar Solution For Advertising?
I Have A N Advertising Panel That Consumes 1000 Watts Needed To Be Working For 9 Hours At Night. How Many Solar Panels And Batteries Will I Need For This Solution. This Is In Dubai So Sunlight Is Not An Issue.
What about during the daytime, does it have to operate then as well. 9 hours of night time use would be 9,000 watt hours of energy which at 12 Vdc would be 750 amp hours. Anybody just using watts for how much to store is displaying a very basic level of ignorance. However there are two issues with lead acid batteries, efficiency and deep discharges. The efficiency of a lead acid battery is 95% at discharging but only 50% at charging, therefore you would use up 790 AH ( 9,473 WH ) of your batteries each night but would need to produce 18,948 watt hours per day from the solar panels, to get the wattage you need, you would divide this by the number of useful hours of sunlight in your area which would be far less than the hours of sunlight unless you had a tracking mount ( in southern US states, it's 6 hours of useful sunlight per day ). The other problem is that lead acid batteries do not like deep discharges, indeed their marketed useful life is based on no more than 20% discharges hence to get the lifespan you expect, the batteries should have five times the diurnal usage which would mean 3,950 AH of batteries.
A grid tied system would easily be a third of the cost as the panels would not need to be doubled and you would avoid the costs of the batteries but if you must use batteries, nickel iron batteries might be a good idea as they can be discharged completely without damaging the battery.
Don't forget that you would also need to add the power needed by the panel to the solar panels if the panel is to also be used during the day.
I Have 265W Solar Panel, How Meny 12V Batteries Do I Need For Storage?
You are approaching the problem backwards. Even utilities don't build power plants and then decice how many houses they can connect.
Start first with the demand. Determine how much of the demand cannot be satisfied directly by solar panels and then balance the cost of a back up system with the cost of energy storage.
You might need 1kwhr of energy per day. This would seem to equal about 4 of your panels but because of the way your panels are rated it could be as much as 6 or 8 panels. You might purchase a back up generator for 500 watts and need to provide 500 watts from batteries. A watt is equal to volts x amps. 500 watts / 12 volts tells us that your batteries will have to provide about 42 amps. Batteries are rated in amp-hours. A 42 amp-hour battery could provide this rating for one hour. Inverters and chargers will use up some of the power.
Solar Panels With Snow?
Hi There. I Live In Colorado, And We Obviously Get A Ton Of Snow There. I Im Looking Into A Solar Power System For My Home, And I Am Wondering If The Snow Will Accumulate On The Panels, Or If, Because Of The Energy Passing Through, It Will Melt On Contact? By The Way We Get About 20' Of Snow Each Year, And It Comes On Often. I Will Also Be Putting Them On My Roof.
Thanks For Your Help.
Good news and not so good news. You need to be able to access the panels to clean the snow off. There is not any heat generated other than the heat of the sun hitting the black colour - which would amount to some melting ability during a sunny day - but it isn't sunny when it snows! Apparently, solar panels work better in the cold and where snow can reflect light so to increase the amount of light - photons - hitting the panel.

Will A Solar Panel Generate More Electricity Facing The Sun Than Not, Or Does It Not Matter?
Like... If A Solar Panel Is Facing The Sun Would It Generate More Than If It Wasn'T Quite Facing The Sun? Or Does It Not Matter Whether A Solar Panel Is Facing Toward Or Away? I Mean, The Sun Produces Light, Yes, But Light Is Everywhere...
Abolutely the panel will generate the most energy when pointed directly toward the sun. There is a slight drop off with only a few degrees of error. If you are not loading the panel near capacity, it may not make much difference to you. But if you want to get every drop out of the panel, it is worth keeping them clean and constantly adjusted.
The incident light on the panel will be reduced by the cosine of the angle of the light source to the panel.
I lived for several years on a boat that used solar panels as the primary electrical power source. When that is your primary energy source, you learn to get the most from it.
