Lots of property owners pick to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The utility business are well-known for their changing and unreliable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward trend.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Easy Or Difficult Is It To Obtain Solar Energy?
I Am Doing A Report On Solar Energy And Need A Little Help.
If You Could Leave Me The Website You Got The Answer From That Would Be Great!! Thanks For Your Help!! :O()
The largest solar collector is our plants.The sun's energy is stored in the plants leaves and seed.
Why Are We Dragging Our Heals With Alternative Energy Solutions?
According To A Study By David Mills, Chief Scientific Officer Of Ausra, A 92 Square Mile Patch Of Southwestern Desert Could Power The Entire Country Via Solar Power. The Solar Converts Energy To Steam Which Is Used To Power The Turbines To Make Electricity. It Would, However, Require A Complete 'Revamping' Of Our Current Electrical Infrastructure From An Ac Grid To A High Voltage Dc Grid.
Instead Of Bailing Out Failed Businesses Like Aig, We Could Have Changed Our Whole System And Cut Our Oil Dependency In Half.
Most Of Us Are Aware That Gm Produced The Ev1, A Highly Efficient And Highly Functional Electric Vehicle That Regularly Got 100-140 Miles Before Recharging. The Top Speed Was Electronically Regulated To Reach 80Mph, Without The Regulator Electric Cars Have Been Clocked At Over 180Mph. The Ev1 Was Mysteriously Recalled And All Models Crushed For Political Reasons.
The Technology Not Only Exists, But Has Existed For Decades. So What Are We Waiting For? Who Or What Is Holding Us Back, And What, If Anything, Can Be Done About It??
All of your ideas make great sense but the country is still moving in another direction. The process for the first nuclear power plant in 30 years has been started. Oil companies are promoting hydrogen vehicles so that they can supply hydrogen and we will be duped into thinking we have a clean fuel. Some electric car companies have received funds, but only those who were politically connected and the review process was done by a very small number of civil servants (no doubt hired from the petrochemical industry) And the Supreme court recently handed down a ruling that says corporations can now fund political candidates in an unlimited amount.
Soon we may begin to see the days of the corporate candidate where corporate logo's may be a part of the political campaign and the politicians will no longer be known as the Senator from Arizona or Texas but the Dow chemical, Chevron, or Monsanto candidate. It may be the last step in removing that fiction that political "representatives" represent people instead of corporations.

What Is The Average Cost For Home Solar Panels?
Despite what many people say, you don't need batteries for a solar system if you are going to also be connected to the electric company (grid). You just need the panels and an inverter (and mounting hardware and safety equipment like breakers and fuses).
Most people don't generate all of the electricity they use. They offset some of their use with solar and buy the rest from the grid. You can get a very small grid-tied solar system for as little as $3000. However, it won't generate much electricity at all. I'd say an average size system is around $10k - $20k. Here are some packages that show all of the components needed. http://www.altestore.com/store/Kits-and-...
If you want to see how much you need, look at your electric bill and see how many kwh you buy each month. Put that number into a calculator like this one, and see how big of a system you need. http://www.altestore.com/store/calculato... Installed cost is about $8 per watt of solar panel.
How Can Solar Energy Be Used During Darker Parts Of The Year?
Trying To Figure Out The 2 Most Renewable Sources.. Solar Puts Up A Pretty Good Fight But It Can'T Hold Energy For Like 4 Months During Winter...? So What Can Be Done About That If Anything.
Solar is pretty useless unless your in Arizona or California.
Until we can find an economical efficient way of storing electricity, we should forget wind and solar.
They are expensive, but that's not the problem they are unreliable and uncontrollable.
Any power station engineer knows you have to exactly balance load to demand, controlling frequency in very a narrow range, if it goes outside that, generator trips occur follow by a blackout.
South Australia just suffered a statewide blackout, they are trying to blame the weather, but if they had had more coal fired stations running and less wind generators they would have survived it.
I Would Like To Power Some Home Appliances Such As Computer And Tv How Would I Select Solar Panels For This?
I Have Been Studying The Possibility Of Using Solar Electricity For Home Use. I Have No Idea Of How It Works, Thanks.
If I Have To Go Into Solar Business What Do I Need To Do In Order To Convince The Prospective Buyers. There Is So Much Lack Of Awareness.
Don't go into a business you know NOTHING about!
Solar power is DC so most home apliances won't work. The panels are used to charge a battery bank and the batteries provide the power. it can be done but effectively you would need to rewire your house to work like a camper van or a yacht! Contact me directly if you are
