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 air conditioning unit, washing clothes, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, lots of home owners find that the convenience, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically minimize or even remove your electrical bills
Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can comprise a large portion of your month-to-month expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your utility costs and you'll still save a great deal of cash.
#2 Earn a fantastic return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power expense savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, property electrical energy prices have gone up by an average of three percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and secure versus unforeseeable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a service or house owner with rising and falling cash circulation, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and handle your expenses.
#4 Boost your home value
Several studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and sell more rapidly 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 homebuyers become more informed about solar, demand 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 an essential part of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a great 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 reduce that number. A common property photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to four heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are essential parts of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding organisations that opt to operate responsibly. Companies are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of customer buying choices, producing 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 loan down.
Many homeowners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility companies are notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can determine just how much electricity will be produced, and most importantly, at what price, 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
- $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
Solar Parabolic Dish Collector For Heating The Water Almost Every Day. Take A Look?
So, I Know You Can'T Heat Your House To Efficient In Winter With This System, But I'M Pretty Sure You Can Heat Your Water For Bath, Kitchen Or For A Pool. And If You Add This System At A Central Heating System, Or A Heat Generator I'M Pretty Sure You Can Reduce Your Heating Cost. Check Http://Www.Lamp-Bulbs.Com For More Details. What Do You Think? Is It Relevant Or Not?
I know that I built a solar panel system from scratch in North Wales, costing me just £50 in total. Okay, I did use some old plumbing parts such as a water storage tank, kindly donated off a plumber, but for 3/4 of the year, there was ample water for two people to take showers. The great thing was, that although the U.k> sees very little sun, the system worked.
I do think that solar water systems can be adapted to work in conjunction with geothermal water heating, and in doing so, totally eliminate any need for external heat sources for heating water.
On the parabolic dish however, although I have never tried it, I think there are much more efficient ways to heat water, as using a dish, you would only be heating a small amount of water at at time, whereas a tubed panel for instance, heats a greater amount of water than a dish could, and in all likely-hood, to the same or higher temperature too.
If you had the space, and you wanted to use the parabolic method, I would suggest using a parabolic trough instead of a dish, as the amount of water heated could be greatly increased. If you did decide to do this, think about surrounding your pipe which is to contain the water with a vacuum sealed glass tube, as this will increase your heat potential.
You could even make your own troughs, by cutting oil drums in half and lining them with a reflective foil.

Do Solar Panels Shine/Have Luster? Please Help Me. Easy Ten Points!?
Okay So I Want To Know If Solar Panels Shine.
------(My Q'S About Blindness Doesn'T Mean Permanent Omg I Can'T See! Blind But That We Just Can&Quot;T See At The Moment Because Of The Light.)-----------------------------
-Like If/When They Face The Sun Is There A Glare To The People Around?
-If There Is Would The Person Have To Look Directly At It?
-Could It Reflect Off Of Other Objects And Cause Temporary Blindness Or Just Shine Light In Person'S Eyes?
-If There Were Windows And Mirrors Near The Solar Panel Would It Affect A Person'S Sight?
-And If It Did For How Long Would It Hurt Or Take Affect?
-And Is This Physics? Like-Solar Panels And How They Work Is That Physics Or Some Other Category?
Solar panels reflect less sun than a piece of window glass, and people aren't harmed by the sun's reflection off windows.
Also, solar panels tend to be tilted more or less directly toward the sun, so the light that they reflect is back at the sun, not down into the street or yard where people are.
Those huge "power tower" concentrating solar thermal plants have a brilliant light reflected off the boiler. But those are put out in the desert, away from people.
How Much Solar Energy Is Used Worldwide?
I Would Prefer For The Answer To Come From Howstuffworks Or Brainpop. However, If The Answer Can'T Be Found On Those Websites, It Will Be Okay To Use Other Sources.
World Solar Power Topped 100,000 Megawatts in 2012.
That is still less than 1% of all electric power in the world, but look how that graph is trending up. I extrapolated that if it keeps that up we could end up with 100% of electricity being solar in less than 15 years. Of source it won't keep trending up that much, but I can easily see it being 20% of world total in 10 years.
Run A Air Conditioner Off 6V 200 Ahsbatteries?
I Have 5 100 Watt Solar Panels And 6 6V 200 Amp Hr Batteries . I Want To Run A 5 To 8000 Btu Air Conditioner
I presume you have a charge controller. Otherwise, you can't connect the 12v solar panels to charge 6v batteries - overcharging and battery damage will result. But presuming you have addressed that issue, I presume your 8000 BTU AC is a 120vac model. That will require about 7 amps = 840 watts. To get 840 watts out of 6v batteries, you'll have to draw about 140 amps. Since inverters are about 85% efficient, you'll have to plan on 165 amps from the bank of batteries. With 6 batteries, each will provide 28 amps. You might get 6 hrs of AC. A 5000 BTU AC will reduce the power requirements by about 33%.
Most battery solar systems are based upon 12v batteries. You can still go that route by connecting two batteries in series, then connect each of those pairs in parallel with each other. That will reduce the current requirements on the battery bank to about 80 amps. No change in the operational capabilities. You can get by with lighter gauge wire.
Where Can I Find Info On How Much Money The Federal Govt Spent On Using Solar Energy Tech. For Fed. Buildings?
Would Like To Know How Much $ Is Reserved/Set Aside By Fed Govt To Use Solar Energy Tech For Some Federal Buildings - Also How Much Money Is Being Spent By Fed Govt On Using Non-Solar Air Conditioning Technology (Traditional A/C Technology)
That is going to take some digging with google. Using strings like "u.s. government solar energy use" you will turn up links like:
So the information is out there, but it appears there is a not a single compendium site that lists all federal solar energy uses. Therefore, it will be a Project to assemble it.
