About Solar Energy
Solar power is energy from the sun that is transformed into thermal or electrical energy.
Solar power makes it possible for home owners to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c, cleaning clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, many residents discover that the convenience, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably minimize and even eliminate your electrical expenses
Whether you're a house owner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can comprise a big part of your monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility bills and you'll still save a great deal of money.
#2 Earn a fantastic return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power costs cost savings, the average American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against increasing energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the past ten years, domestic electrical power prices have increased by approximately 3 percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure against unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're an organisation or homeowner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise helps you better projection and handle your costs.
#4 Boost your house value
Several research studies have actually found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and sell more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups 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 homes geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial part of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate changes in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market included tasks 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 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 significant factor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a great method to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A typical residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are necessary components of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding services that opt to operate properly. Organisations are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of consumer getting choices, creating goodwill and improving company outcomes.
#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 money down.
Numerous property owners choose to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility 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 energy business are notorious for their changing and undependable electrical energy prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and basic math, we can compute how much electrical energy will be created, and most importantly, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).
What are the various payment options?
- Low, fixed payments each month
- System insurance for 20 years, including maintenance

Frequently Asked Questions
Can A Solar Power Configured With The Following Specification Run E.G Tv, Microwave Etc?.?
If It Does Carry A Lot Of Household Appliances How Many Sunny Days Will It Require To Charge? How Many Hours Will This Home Appliances Work?
1 X 80W Solar Panel
1 X 85Ah Deep Cycle Battery
1 X Inv1000 - 1000Watt Inverter
1 X Waterproof Battery Box
1 X Stspr10 – 12Ah Charge Controller
1 X Aluminium Solar Panel Stand
1 X 20M Cable Bundle
1 X Power Rcd Socket
1 X Connectors, Fuses And Terminals
1 X Detailed User Manual
The short answer is yes, with reservations.
Take the worst case you mention, the microwave oven.
Here I assume a 240 Volt supply from the inverter, if 110V the situation is even worse.
I'll also assume the microwave consumes (say) 750 Watts of power.
I also have to assume a 12 Volt battery.
Disregarding losses all through, it goes like this:
Your battery capacity is 85 Ah.
The microwave will need 3.125 Amperes at 240V. for full power.
Thus the battery will need to supply 20 x 3.125 or 62.5 Amperes.
Thus the battery, without further charging, would run the microwave for 1.36 Hours only.
Your solar cell supplies 80W., and if the voltage is 12, the max. current it will supply the battery is 6.6 Amperes. It would take 12 hours (plus) to fully charge the battery (it would/ should never be flattened).
So the reservation is how much charge time is available, and how much you wish to use high- draw appliances.
A careful selection of a TV set could give you plenty of viewing time, however!
Could I Power My Christmas Lights With Solar Without Having Rooftop Solar Panels ?
Sure why not? You just need them to charge some form of battery that will run the lights at night, which means you need to be using low voltage lighting. You just need to factor in the lighting demand and the voltage requirement for the lights and be sure to get the appropriate solar panels and rechargable type batteries to match your needs and place it in a position that gets the optimum amount of sun in the winter (when the lights are going to be used) and using either a weather tight junction or solder and shrink tube the connection from the first stringers to the solar panel (this means cutting off the transformer plug).
Overall,.........its probably going to cost more then to just use electricity by having to purchase the panels and appropriate batteries and any materials needed to convert. If you are about "going green" then I understand.
Are Solar Panels Made Of Different Materials Depending On Area?
Are Solar Panels Made Different If You Live In The North With A Lot Of Snow And Very Little Sunlight Or In The South With High Humidity And Sunlight Throughout The Year?
I think no. materials for the solar panel is same for whole but the solar cell may vary
Help Me With My Solar Panel System?
I Am Trying To Get A List/Price Check On Making A Home Solar Panel System
I Was Hoping For Someone To Look Over What I Have And Add/Remove Things.
Was Looking At This Type Of Solar Panel: X4
Lead Acid Battery: X2
I Have No Idea What Charge Controller I Should Look For.
If You Can Think Of Anything More That Would Be Needed Or If Something Wont Work.
There are many factors used to calculte the energy and the best sized system for not just your needs but also your budget and for payback.
Most importantly is how many maximum KiloWatt hours do you need per day as well as how many *average* KiloWatt hours do you need per day. This can be found on your electric bill. A typical household uses 30,000 KWh per day which translates to a 3KW solar panel system of (12) 250W solar panels with an average of 10 hours of sunlight.
I would recommend grid tied initially and you can go for batteries later. Just have a professional install it or you won't get the tax credits from the State and the Fed.
Also make sure that you don't pay more than $2 per watt for the panels (lowest prices are below $1 per watt for quantity) and no more than $1 per watt for the inverter (lowest prices are below $0.50 per watt).
How Power Is Produced By Solar Panels? What Is The Cost Of A Solar Panel? Can I Really Save Enough Money?
Solar panels convert light energy into electricity via electro-chemical means.
Getting solar panels installed typically costs between $7,000 and $12,000 per kW of capacity. How much money you can save will depend on where you live and how much to pay for electricity.
There is a calculator called PV Watts that can give you a real good estimate of how much you would save on electricity bills here:
just pick the location closest to you (it may not be in the same state) and enter the size of system you want to install (or try a few different ones) and if you put in your $/kWh (from your electric bill) it will even give you the answer in dollars.
If you are in New Jersey or California, there also are some great incentive programs to help lower the installation costs.
Calling a local PV installer is also a good way to get more locally specific info.
