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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothing, watching TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, many residents discover that the benefit, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably decrease or perhaps eliminate your electric costs
Whether you're a homeowner, service, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can comprise a big part of your regular monthly costs. 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 consume, solar will lower your energy bills and you'll still save a great deal of cash.
#2 Make an excellent return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power costs savings, the average American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, property electricity rates have increased by an average of three percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and protect versus unpredictable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a service or homeowner with changing money circulation, going solar likewise helps you better forecast and handle your expenses.
#4 Increase your home value
Numerous studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher home worths and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, need for properties 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 accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price fluctuations in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar market added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a great way to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A common property solar panel system will remove 3 to 4 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are necessary components of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that pick to run properly. Services are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of customer acquiring decisions, creating goodwill and improving company 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 money down.
Lots of property owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The energy companies are well-known for their varying and unreliable electricity prices. There is plainly an upward trend.
With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can calculate just how much electrical power will be generated, and most significantly, at what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Is The Cost And Benefit Of Using Solar Panels As An Energy Source For My Home?
Specifically, How Much Does It Cost To Purchase, Install, And Maintain A Solar Panel? How Much Of My Energy Can I Tap Out Of It?
I Live In Phoenix, Arizona. It Supposedly Rains Four Days A Year Here.
I'm in the middle of putting in solar/wind to offset the power needs of a 75 unit condo in St Thomas.
Cut to the chase. Solar systems, with batteries to store power for use at night and inverters to change battery power to 120v cost about $7 a watt installed
in Phoenix you'll get about 30 watts a square foot about 10 hours a day
a 1000W panel, at $7,000 installed will run 10 100 watt light bulbs or (maybe)) an energy efficient refrigerator.

Why Aren'T Solar Panels Being Advertised Or Promoted?
It is expensive, but with new technology the prices should be coming down. It is up to grass roots to promote solar panels, and really make them main stream. I see many buildings in Florida with "wasted" roof space for solar panels. I think that big businesses whose power bills soar into the thousands a month, should be required to install them to off set their power usage over 10 years it would pay for the installation of the panels with the reduced power bills that they would have. They are being short sighted to say that it is to expensive.
Why Is Solar Power So Important For The Success Of The International Space Station?
Looking For Opinions And/Or Facts Related To This For A Project.
For electric power. Just as it is so important for the success of our nation - and the rest of the planet, the same reason. Our civilization would collapse without electric power.
Solar power is easily available for the space station, no clouds - ever - to block the sun's 'free' energy. And, many nations on our planet use increasing amounts of solar power - every day. Australia is very big on solar. here in Arizona there are many.. many homes & businesses with solar panels on their rooftops. There is enough solar energy pouring down on our deserts to generate power for the entire planet!
How Do Solar Energy Panels Work?
If The Energy Is Obtained From The Sun, Is It Obtained From The Heat Or Uv Rays Of The Sun? Also, After It Obtains The Energy, How Does It Transfer That Into Usable Energy? Lastly, Is It Immediately Usable Or Is It Stored Until Its Use Is Required?
Solar electric panels (photovoltaic panels) use the light of the sun to produce electricity. They are made out of semiconductor materials like silicon (the same stuff that's in your computer), which is treated so it's positively charged on one side and negatively charged on the other.
When light energy strikes this "solar cell", electrons are knocked loose from the semiconductor material, and at this point they can be captured in the form of an electric current so they can be put to work.
Solar panels produce DC electricity which must be converted to AC by a solar power inverter before it can be used to power household appliances.
If you have a battery bank, the power can be stored for later use.
How Do You Mount A Solar Panel To The Roof Of A Motor Home?
I Just Bought A 100Watt Pv Panel And Was Curious How This Is Done. I Don'T Want It Flying Off The Roof When I'M Going 75Mph Down The Freeway. I Also Don'T Want To Pay $100 For A Few Pieces Of Aluminum. Some Of Those Mount Prices Are Highway Robbery! Am I Supposed To Put A Board Under The Panel For Strength? They Seem Very Fragile. I'D Appreciate Your Help. Thanks For Reading.
Well, you can try to improvise something, and if you fail your $500 solar panel is going to fly off your RV like a kite, potentially decapitating someone behind you and resulting in a criminal negligence lawsuit that might bankrupt you for the rest of your life.
Or you can spend the $100 for the manufacturer-recommended mounting brackets, then have it professionally installed, and rest easy. The $100 is not just for the materials, but the design and testing to ensure it is safe, and the liability in case it does fail.
I'm not saying its impossible to come up with a good DIY mounting system. But if you have to ask, maybe you're better off going with a professional installation?
If not, at least do us the courtesy of posting a link to your rig so we know when to watch out for flying solar panels. :-)
