#3 Secure against increasing energy costs

Lots of property owners decide to finance their solar 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, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar supplier for electrical power-- 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 Investment
The energy business are notorious for their varying and undependable electrical power rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and easy math, we can calculate just how much electrical power will be created, 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.

Need Solar Panel Help?
How Does It Work? Is It The Hooter It Is The More Energy It Produce? Please Help.
Do you mean HOTTER?? HOOTERS have nothing to do with solar panels . . . . :-)
Heat has nothing to do with it. It is the amount of light (sunlight), not the heat. Solar panels work just as well in the cold. Even in space, like on the Space Station, where temperatures can be as low as 300 degrees F below zero.
Very simply put, the solar panels are made of a special chemical that responds to photons of light. When a light photon hits the chemical, it knocks an electron off an atom. When this happens to millions and million of atoms, this causes electron flow -- which is, of course, electricity.
Just like a battery, the solar panels must be hooked "in series" with what ever you are wanting to power. So the electrons flow right around the circut and back into the solar cell, where they go back into place and wait for the next photon of light.
VERY SIMPLE, first-grade explanation of a photo-chemical process that is far too difficult to explain othewise.
There are also solar water heating panels that some people use on their homes. In this case the sunlight is focused onto a tube containing a "volatile" liquid, like an alcohol. The focused light heats up the tube (like a magnifying glass), and the heat goes into the alcohol.
These tubes flow down to the water heater in the garage, where the heat is transferred to the water. The cooled alcohol is pumped back to the roof to cycle again.
While this directly uses heat energy, it comes from the focused light, so these will still work on a cold day, so long as the alcohol doesn't freeze.
Economics Of Solar Power?
Is Solar Going To Become An Affordable Alternative Soon? How Cheap Does It Need To Get? Is It Typically Calculated As Cost Per Watt, Or? How Much Electic Does The Typical Home Use? Any Insight Would Be Apreciated.
solar power is still a new technology. companies that are pursuing it aggressively are for the most part small and arent selling a large volume. low sales means the company must have a high profit margin to survive, this translates into high prices for the equipment. when other forms of energy become to expensive more people will turn to solar allowing the manufacturers to invest in more efficient processes allowing them to charge less for their product. copper is also very expensive at the moment. (used in high quality solar panels)
how cheap? i have no idea. maybe the price of coal needs to get higher! LOL
Can Any One Direct Me To A Web Site That Tells You How To Install Solar Panels On My Home Correctly?
I'M Looking For Instructions To Install Solar Panels. I Have A Place To Buy All The Panels And Inverters.. I Just Need More Detail On The Different Ways To Hook It Up. How Much Power Needed, Etc.
That information should come with the panels. Is there a brand name? (At this point I assume you are buying used equipment.) Go to google.com and type the brand name into the box and see what you get. If that doesn't do it then you need to find someone who happens to know how to do it.
