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 house owners to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c, cleaning clothing, viewing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, lots of residents discover that the benefit, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Leading Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly decrease or even remove your electric expenses
Whether you're a property owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility costs and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.
#2 Make a terrific return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity bill savings, the average American house owner settles their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical energy rates have actually increased by an average of three percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure against unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're a service or house owner with changing capital, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home value
Several research studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and offer quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into consideration 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 capability to generate electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate variations in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a terrific method to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A common domestic photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to four heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are essential elements of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding services that decide to operate properly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of consumer purchasing choices, producing goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Numerous property owners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- 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 Investment
The energy companies are well-known for their changing and undependable electrical power rates. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can compute what does it cost? electrical power will be generated, and most importantly, at exactly what price, 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

Frequently Asked Questions
How Many Solar Panels Does It Take To Power A Three Bedroom House, And How Much Would It Cost?
Can't help with the cost, but my 6 kW photovoltaic solar system has 40 panels. In Martinez CA I get an annual average of about 20 kWh per day. Check your utility bills and see how much you use. That will give you a rough idea of what to expect.
You could check with your building department to determine where solar systems have been installed in your area. Most folks who have them are willing to talk about them.
6 Volt Solar Panels To Charge?
Ive Got 4 Solar Panels At 6 Volts Each What Is The Best Way To Wire Them Up To Run A 12 Volt Power Inverter
I know when you wire batteries up in series negative to positve and positive to negative then you add the voltages together. Like in a flashlight.
When you wire them up in parralel which is negative to negative and positive to positive, it remains the same voltage like when you jump start a car.
So somehow you will need to wire 2 sets up in parrel, then combine the two in series.
Just guessing. I would definitely check the final voltage with a $10 multimeter from walmart before you use it.
Are Solar Panals Real Expensive?
If they were not expensive everyone would be buying them and the government would not need to try subsidizing their purchase.
Unless you are in a frost-free area they need an antifreeze solution to circulate through the panels and heat exchangers to pick up the heat from that. They can also have costly repairs if tree branches fall on them. Unless you have a roof facing south you need a support to hold them up to catch the sun (with the potential for roof leaks where the supports are attached.)
How Do You Build A 3-D Model Of A Plant Cell?
I Would Like To Build A 3-D Model Of A Plant Cell For A Biology Project. I Would Not Like To Use Food.But If I Have To I Will Manage.
You do not have to use food! The simplest, and best way to build a 3d model is to use parts that have metaphorical significance instead of things that look like the actual plant part.
For example, use a shoebox for the cell wall of a plant-- this is a good analogy because the cell wall of a plant is rigid and gives the rest of the cell its sturdy (but relatively immobile) structure. For the chloroplasts, you can put in a small piece of mirror and call it a "solar energy panel" because chloroplasts essentially harness energy in the form of sunlight and turn it into a usable energy for themselves.
By making these analogies, you will have really nice ways to remember the organelles of the cell, and you will also avoid food altogether. Good luck!
What Are Other Opinions On This Potential Stimulus Package?
The thing that made the Great Depression great was that we allowed the market to adjust by itself. For three years. It didn't and finally we stepped in and did all of those socialist things that kept our people working and the economy moving. But what really got us out of the depression was the Great War. At the end of WWII we were 125% of the GNP in debt, compared to the 1% we are now in debt.
Learning from our experiences we jumped right into the fray this time. Not everything was done correctly. We are still trying to bail out AIG but this time have modified the agreement to be more like the European Union's. Now we own stock in AIG and have voting rights on what they do. No more parties at the SPA ! ! !
In the end we need to create domestic jobs. We need to create our own energy. If we create a demand for Algae farms that produce oil in prodigious amounts when we use CO2 saturated water that was used to scrub smoke stacks from an electric generating dynamo, we lessen the carbon loading of the atmosphere from the smoke stacks and create a new crop that produces Oxygen and Oil. Whew, that was a long sentence that wound around a viable solution to at least two of our problems. Lack of domestic energy and too much CO2 in the atmosphere.
When we are spending $700 billion a year on foreign oil and complaining about spending $700 billion to bail out wall street we need to take alook at how we are spending our money.
If it was mandated that every new house built would have to have a Geo-Thermal heat pump to heat and cool the house, Solar-Voltic panels to generate free electricity to not only run the heat pump but charge the Electric Vehicle in the garage, we would be free of our dependence on oil in less time than it would take to drill, and make productive, new oil wells off shore or in Alaska.
How many new products, like Geo-Thermal heat pumps and Solar Panels, would we be producing with that plan? How many farmers would be back at work? How many new houses built? New cars made? UM, a lot? Yes that many.
The old way is not working, lets get started on the new way.
