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 utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c, washing clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are substantial, lots of property owners discover that the convenience, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically lower or even eliminate your electric bills
Whether you're a homeowner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can make up a big part of your month-to-month expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your energy expenses and you'll still save a great deal of cash.
#2 Make an excellent return on your investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity expense cost savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against increasing energy expenses
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, property electricity costs have increased by approximately three percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and secure against unforeseeable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a company or property owner with rising and falling money circulation, going solar also helps you better projection and manage your expenditures.
#4 Increase your house value
Numerous studies have discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater home worths and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, demand for homes geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key part of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price changes in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total 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 greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A typical property photovoltaic panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are very important parts of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that decide to run responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of customer acquiring choices, developing goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Many homeowners opt to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
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 companies are notorious for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can compute just how much electrical energy will be generated, and most significantly, at what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty 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
How Can I Charge An Electric Car With Solar Power?
If It Takes 240 Volts To Charge An Electric Car And 8 Hrs As A Short Charge. How Large Would It Have To Be And Is It Possible To Design A Portable Solar Panel System To Store In The Car Trunk And Use It When Needed To Charge The Car When Traveling?
Please check your other question for a discussion of the size of the solar panel required to charge a vehicle here: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?... In my answer I mentioned that the charge required depends upon the size of the battery, the charging time required and the amount of usage anticipated. I gave some examples of what would be required for the Nissan Leaf. (a dashboard trickle charger, a 34sq meter daily charger or a 66 panel 20KW power supply for constant usage)
Solar panels stored in a trunk might only work if you anticipate traveling at night and then charging the car during the day. Do you then intend to limit your range of travel to the battery capacity or do you feel the need to travel further?
Solar panels that could fit into a trunk would have to be flexible panels. The present efficiency of these panels is about 1/2 that of the rigid counterparts which would require a doubling of the size already mentioned. Therefore approximately 68 sq meters or more than 730 sq ft of flexible solar panels would have to be stuffed into the trunk of a nissan leaf to be able to top off the battery in a day.
A genset trailer may be a better alternative while traveling. http://www.evnut.com/rav_longranger.htm This particular trailer was made by AC propulsion which they advertise here: http://www.madkatz.com/acpropulsion/long...
Solar Panels On The House?
I Want To Know How Many Solar Panels To Use To Power My Ac And Water Heater
you cant use solar panels to power your house,
it would take more than you can afford,and space to mount them
and all the equip required to hook it up.
what they don,t tell you is
you need a Battery bank [24 to 48 batteries], deep cycle
,[one that will convert 12 volts to 110, at the wattage you need ]
a transfer switch, rated at 100 amps
a 45 watt panel is around $300
Can I Connect An Ac Motor To The Solar Board Directly?
There Were No Dealer Of Solar Panel Here, So I Decided To Buy The Solar Board Which Will Arrive By Next Week. How Can I Make The Ac Motor Work If I Can'T Connect The Solar Board To The Ac Motor Directly?
I would pick up some books on solar panels make sure you get one that has information with basic electronic information. Solar panels make a dc voltage in most cases unless it has some type of inverter built in this would be rare. Depending on the size most are low wattage. I would guess it doesn't have the power to run the ac motor even if you could.
If you could you would need a voltage regulator and a inverter to turn the dc to ac. You would need some type of battery to use as a capacitor.
Your best bet would be to charge a battery system then buy a inverter to run off the battery and a battery charger with built in regulator they're cheap check ebay.. You could put the motor on a timer to give the panel time to charge the battery before running. This is what i would do if i wanted to say pump water for cattle on a low budget.

sunlight is electromagnetic radiation
thermal energy causes things to heat up, not chemical. chemical energy has to be converted to thermal energy in order to heat something up
People Who Are Environmentalist, What Is Better To Use Solar, Biomass, Or Wind Energy If All The Oil Ran Out?
If All The Oil In The World Ran Out And We Needed A Resource To Equal Oil, Which One Would An Environmentalist Choose. Of Course They Are Trying To Help And Protect The Earth. Which One Of These Would Be Chossen By An Environmentalist? Please Answer My Question. Thank You!
The sun, for all practical purposes, is an endless source of energy but cold climates, cold seasons and cloudy weather impact our ability to access it. We need to find a combination of energy sources and consistently rely on natural sources, such as wind and even controversial hydroelectric to meet our planet's needs.
We also need to re-engineer our products that require energy. We can design far more efficiently and still be able to cool and heat our homes, schools and businesses. The Green Star program is just scratching the surface when it comes to energy efficient appliances, etc.
I rate biomass third because it creates pollution while solar and wind do not.
