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 home owners to use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioner, washing clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, numerous property owners find that the convenience, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably minimize and even eliminate your electrical costs
Whether you're a property owner, service, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can comprise a large part of your month-to-month costs. With a solar panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your energy expenses and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power bill savings, the average 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 costs
One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical energy prices have actually increased by approximately 3 percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and safeguard against unpredictable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a company or property owner with ever-changing money circulation, going solar also helps you much better forecast and manage your costs.
#4 Boost your residential or commercial property worth
Several research studies have actually found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater home values and sell more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, demand for properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key component of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost variations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market included 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 nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a terrific 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 remove three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are very important components of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that opt to operate responsibly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of consumer purchasing choices, creating goodwill and enhancing service results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Numerous property owners pick to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
As of 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 infamous for their changing and undependable electrical energy rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and simple math, we can determine just how much electrical power will be produced, and most notably, at what rate, 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

Electrical Help Needed For Project!?
Im Doing A Science Prjoect Where Im Creatinga Solar Cellphone. I Have A 3.6V Battery In The Phone. What Amp, V , Wat Or Mah Does My Solar Panel Need To Be So It Works And Doesnt Blow Up In My Face. And Wut Amp Diode Would I Need, Anyhelp Or Ideas Of Actual Construction Would Help. Im Getting Confused Alot . -Thanks
for your specific application, you should take an ammeter and put it inline with the battery. You can then see what current is drawn from the battery while the cell phone operates. once you now this, you know what current your solar cells would need to produce, so that the cell phone could run 100% off solar power.
If you are not requiring that the phone to operate solely off the solar cell, then you can consider the average current consumption of the cell phone. you'll notice that while the phone is on, but not in a call, it does not consume much current, but every 10 seconds or so, you will see a much larger current maybe a few hundred milliamps, this is the phone making signal check to track the cell towers, etc. You can predictably choose a solar array that provides enough energy to maintain the average consumption of the cell phone, so that if you are not making calls the solar cell will recharge the battery, but when in calls, the cell phone will use the battery mostly as a reservoir.
The voltage you want to be slightly greater then the battery voltage, you will want to you a power diode, so that there is no backward current discharge into the solar array. Keep in mind that you will loose some voltage due to the diode.
For example: with a 3.7 V li-ion you could add 0.7 V for the diode, and use a solar cell that would provide around 4.5-5 volts. This will leave a little room for low sunlight conditions, and provide the voltage bias to charge the battery.
Solar cells are usually rated in open circuit voltage, which is the maximum voltage provided by a solar cell with no load, and short circuit current which is the maximum current provided when the solar cell is shorted (usually through an ammeter).
Hope I was helpful, feel free to contact me through my yahoo information if you have any questions, good luck
Are Solar Panel Batteries Hazardous?
What Are The Contents Of The Batteries For Solar Panel Systems Made Up Of? Are They Safe To Keep Indoors? What Would They Release If There Ever Was A Fire?
yes. It depends on the type of battery, but they all are toxic, I think.
often they contain lead and certainly acid. Don't just throw them away
Where Can I Find Solar Panels And How To Install Them Inexpensively?
I Already Change All The Lightbulbs In My Apartment For Energy Saving Ones. I Drive Less So My Car Doens'T Emit That Much. I Would Like To Know More About Solar Panels
We just installed 2 solar collectors a year ago, and it wasn't cheap. That's the downside. On a postive note, over a year's time, we've cut our natural gas bill in half (the solar collectors are heating our water). Looking at it that way, they pay for themselves. To answer your first question, we obtained ours from a friend. If you live in an environmentally retarded area, it might be difficult to find them. There are venues online where you can purchase them. Try Amazon, ebay...or just Google it.
Solar Panels Are Cheap In China-How Long Will It Last?
The Chinese Made Solar Panels Are Cheap. I Know That There Are High Tariffs That Make Them Unprofitable To Import To The Us, But The Chinese Companies Are Shifting Production To Other Countries To Avoid The Tariff. How Many Years Might That Last?
Considering the cost of solar panels in the US and UK, they are not relatively cheap but you can rest assure that they work perfectly. I'm not saying that there are no cheap versions but consider the country in which the product came.
