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 ac system, cleaning clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, lots of property owners find that the benefit, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically minimize or even remove your electric costs
Whether you're a house owner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can make up a large part of your month-to-month expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.
#2 Earn a fantastic return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity costs savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, property electricity prices have increased by an average of 3 percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unforeseeable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're an organisation or property owner with rising and falling capital, going solar also helps you better projection and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home or business worth
Numerous studies have discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater home worths and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, need for properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential element of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost variations in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included tasks at a rate nearly 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 tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a terrific method to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly 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 yearly.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are very important elements of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that pick to operate responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of consumer acquiring decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Numerous property owners choose to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This means that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar service provider for electricity-- 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 notorious for their changing and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can determine what does it cost? electrical energy will be created, and most notably, at what price, for a minimum of the next 20 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
- 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
Sunrun Solar Tax Benefits?
When You Get Sunrun To Install Solar Panels On Your House With Their No Down 18/20 Year Power Agreement, Does The Homeowner Get Any Federal Tax Credit? Or Does Sunrun Gets All The Rebates And Tax Credit?
You can bet that Sunrun will still make a return on the investment and since the only way for solar to give a viable return is through the federal subsidies, somehow the subsidies will sink to their bottom line.
Howmany Solar Panels Would I Need To Run My House?
A few months ago I thought about doing the same thing. Forget it, too costly. Cheapest I could find was about $1600.00 to burn a 200 watt light bulb. Would take several of these just for lighting. If it was cost effective, everyone would be doing it. Less than 1% of electricity is produced in the US by solar electric panels. Solar heat is different, cheap ways to do this.
Analogy, How Is A Cell Like A Fort?
I Read A Lot I'M Not Very Good A Science. Thanks For The Help.:) Your The Best!
Endoplasmic Reticulum(Smooth And Rough)
The most obvious comparison between a cell and a fort is a barrier surrounding the whole structure. Both closely control what goes in and out of the structure. Beside that they are completely self reliant. In short:
Cell Membrane: Fort Wall
Nucleus: Control Center
Golgi apparatus (we should leave out) they secrete chemicals out of the cell if that is the cells purpose
ribosomes: Central Mainframe Computer
Mitochondria: Energy Plants
Vacuoles: Waste Management/ Police
Chloroplasts(plants only) Solar Panels for energy collection
Cell Wall: Fort wall for plants
Endoplasmic Reticulum: Mail Service
Urgent Solar Panel Help Needed Asap!!! 20 Volts, 0.7 Amps!?
It'S Been 9 Days Since This Issue Began, And Just Now Did I Realize The Issue Was My Solar Panel Itself. It Gives 17-22 Volts, But Only 0.7 Amps In Full Sunlight An Hour Before Sunset. I Can'T Check It Any Sooner Than That Because I Am Still In School. I Need Help Immediately! I Go On Winter Vacation In 4 Days And I Want This Fixed Asap!
In The Above Photo It Reads 0.34 Because The Sun Was Setting Once I Found Out How To Open This Black Box On The Back Of The Panel. It Is Connected To Little Holes That Were There In The Metal Of The Panel.
The Best Answer Will Receive 5 Stars If It Fixes The Issue. I'Ve Made Contact With The Manufacturer (Windy Nation Inc.) Just Moments Ago And Still Am Awaiting A Response. Maybe Some Advice From Others Will Help To?
Without the model number and specs of your panel, it's hard to give a detailed answer.
If this is a new setup, possibly this is normal operation. It is near sunset, after all, and the sun is coming in at a low angle. As an example, it's 8 am where I live right now, maybe half an hour after sunrise, and I just read 96 watts coming from our array. At this time of year, we see about 2100 watts at noon.
So look for indications that what you see is not normal. If there is more than one panel in the system, compare your suspect panel with another, for short circuit current, and open circuit voltage. If the system was working at a certain performance level, and suddenly failed, that's also a sign that something went wrong.
Why Doesn'T California Use Solar Energy To Solve Its Power Crises?
Seriously, There Is Not A Single Cloud In The Sky In Sunny Old California, How Could Someone Not Think Of Using Solar There?
Give the politicans some slack huh.
Solar energy is pretty pathetic as an energy source by itself, try it yourself. Get a torch run on solar power with no batteries and see how much light and power you can get out of it. Sure it works, but compared to batteries... its weak, really weak.
Now while solar energy is all good and nice, it is no where near the point where it could save a city from an energy crisis, no where near enough. I wouldn't leave a huge thriving city in the hands of solar power, that would be almost certain chaos.
Solar power won't have its own feet without subsidies for many many years, that science learning period and experimentation will take a while and in the mean time your area needs power. One day without power would mean complete chaos.
Politicians have brains, and if the solution were soo easy they'd do so, but its not all back and white. Drilling in Alaska is the best option to save the energy crisis, support would be good instead of ignorant, naive attacks.
