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 use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning system, cleaning clothes, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, many home owners find that the benefit, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically decrease or even remove your electric expenses
Whether you're a property owner, company, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can make up a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your utility expenses and you'll still save a lot of money.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity bill savings, the typical American homeowner settles their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, domestic electricity rates have increased by an average of 3 percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard against unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a company or homeowner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and manage your expenditures.
#4 Boost your house worth
Multiple studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater home values and offer quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent way to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A normal domestic photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to 4 heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are very important elements of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that select to run responsibly. Companies are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of consumer getting choices, creating goodwill and improving business results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Numerous homeowners decide to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar supplier for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
Since 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 undependable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and basic math, we can compute how much electrical power will be created, and most significantly, at what rate, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).
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

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
How Can You Use Solar Panels, Wind Energies And Dams As A Renewable Recouurce?
I Need Some Homework Help. I Am Doing A Science, 1 Page Essay On The Subject (Its The Title)
I Need To A Little Bit Of Informattion For I Can Put It Together Into One Essay. Thanks For The Help!
Okay... this seems familiar...
Well then. Solar Panels harvest energy from the sun. Sometimes, panels are used to create electricity via photons from the Sun's rays. Other times, the panels are simply deflectors that are used to boil water in a tube where the sunlight is concentrated.
Pro: The Sun won't run out of energy (hopefully) so this is renewable.
Con: The Sun won't shine every day! When it rains, the system is unusable, or when its cloudy, and this process only works during the daytime.
Wind Energy: Wind farms "harvest" the power of the wind by using the wind to blow on propellers that are attached to a generator to create energy.
Pro: Wind energy won't hurt the environment. Its reusable.
Con: Wind won't blow all the time, and you must have a good, strong, steady wind for this to work, or even be profitable. The wind is very random, and constructing "wind farms" takes up lots of space and time and resources, and usually can't produce much energy.
Hehe, fun word. Dams are used to block rivers and use the force of the water in order to turn turbines, like the wind energy.
Pro: Dams are efficient sources of energy, and there are multiple rivers in the world where one could build such a dam. Also, dams generate decent quantities of electricity.
Con: Everyone thinks that dams are clean. Well they're wrong. Dams create resovoirs behind them, blocking the natural flow of water, and pretty much creating a big fat lake. This may seem good, but too much water may make the soil over hydrated. If this is the case, then the plants around the resovoir die out, releasing massive amounts of carbon dioxide into our atmosphere; the very thing that we tried to avoid by building such a dam. Also, dams block the natural flow of water from the river. While they provide decent energy, the fish and various aquarius life are stuck. For example, you may have heard many examples of salmon blocked from their feeding ground and mating ground all because of a dam that blocked their way. This creates a major imbalance in our ecosystem.
My knowledge is very limited, so try researching your topic.
Hope this helps :D
Can I Connect A Solar Panel Directly To An Inverter?
I'M Working On A Small Project Where I Can Connect Low Voltage/Watts Equipment Using An Inverter Connected Directly To My Solar Panels. I Know You Can Connect Them Directly To Each Other But What Is The Power Ratio To Run The Inverter And Its Load....Meaning. If I Want To Run A 100 Watt 12V Inverter, What Solar Panel(Wattage/Amps/Voltage) Do I Need. How Much Amps/Voltage Do I Need From The Solar Panels To Make The Inverter Work, With And Without Load?
Normally it is not connected directly because the voltage and current output from the panel is fluctuating as it is entirely dependent on the sun's rays.
So the solar panel is therefore connected via a "Charge Controller" to a 12V lead acid battery to charge it.
The battery is then connected to the inverter.
Are Solar Panels Worth The Price?
It depends how you plan to use them.
They are not always the best answer for power production.
For many they can be worth the price if they have realistic expectations from them and understand their limitations.
For others, with unrealistic expectations, they may not be practical for their needs and would be wasted money.
Think of them as a tool in a tool box.
What Do You Think Our Our Best Bets For Near Future Alternate Fuel Vehicles?
Near Future, Like Within The Next 5 - 10 Years.
E85 - Ethanol?
Anything I'Ve Left Out?
E85 - Ethanol, Bio-diesel, and Vegetable Oil Are all carbon producing fuels.
The Hydrogen Highway has not pulled the proper permits because the by product of producing hydrogen from natural gas, which is where most industrial hydrogen comes from, is Carbon dioxide, a green house gas ! ! !
A Plug-in Hybrid is the closest to a solution until the hybrid vehicles finally develop batteries that can store enough energy to get a reasonable range.
Plug-in Electric is the ultimate clean fuel for transportation. The average commute in the USA is 25 miles. Well within the range of any decent electric car. If you combine that with solar voltaic panels on the roof of your house the cost of driving your car for most of your needs would be free.
Wind Generators On Cell Phone Towers -- Are Solar Panels Too Expensive?
Some Cell Phone Towers Alongside I-78 In Nj Now Have &Quot;Windmills&Quot; On Top. The Diameter Of The Turbine Is Around 6 Feet. They Look Much Like The Farm Windmill Generators In The 30-Ties. With Many Blades. Not Just The Three As On Modern Day Large Scale Wind Turbines.
1. Did I Assume Correctly, Those Are Electrical Generators? (Or Are They Possibly Just &Quot;Wind Speed&Quot; And &Quot;Weather Conditions&Quot; Measurement Devices, Operated By A Company Other Than The Cell Phone Operators?)
2. Why So Many Blades? I Thought That Was The Issue With The Old Farm Windmill Generators, They Were Not As Efficient.
3. Why Windpower? I Thought Solar Panels Are The &Quot;In-Thing&Quot;. (Are Solar Panels In Fact Too Expensive To Install And Service? Do They Need Bigger Back-Up Batteries, Since They Do Not Work At Night?)
1. If they're 6 foot in size they must be for electricity.
2.So they can be used in low wind.
3.Wind is cheaper and makes more power. Solar has good pr from people who know really nothing about it.
Size of th battery would most likely be the same seeing you can run out of wind just as long as you run out of light on rainy days.
