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, cleaning clothes, watching TV, cooking supper. All while reducing 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, numerous homeowners find that the benefit, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically minimize or perhaps remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a property owner, company, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can make up a large part of your regular monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your utility bills and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy expense savings, the typical American homeowner 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 benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy rates. In the past ten years, domestic electrical energy prices have gone up by an average of 3 percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and secure against unforeseeable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're a company or homeowner with changing money flow, going solar also helps you better forecast and manage your expenses.
#4 Boost your house worth
Numerous studies have discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater property worths and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial 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 element of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate variations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar market included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a great method to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A common domestic solar panel system will remove three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are essential elements of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding organisations that decide to operate properly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of consumer buying choices, creating goodwill and improving business results.
#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 loan down.
Numerous homeowners select to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility companies are infamous for their varying and unreliable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical energy will be created, and most notably, at what cost, for at least the next Twenty 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

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
Where Does Solar Energy Come From?
I Have A Science Project Due Monday And I Need Help I Need About A Paragraph About Where It Comes From
Im In 6 Grade
Generating electricity with the power of the sun’s rays (“solar power”, “photovoltaic power”, or “PV” for short) is possible due to the photovoltaic effect. “Photo” comes from the Greek for “light”; “voltaic” refers to the production of electricity and is a variant of Italian physicist Alessandro Volta’s name.
To illustrate how PV works, let’s follow the flow of energy through a small grid-tied residential system:
The first step in the process occurs when rays of light from the sun strike the cells within PV modules (modules are commonly called “panels”). As the light energy hits the photovoltaic cells, electrons are excited and begin to flow. Multiple cells are connected in one module, and several modules are connected together to form an array, all harnessing and summing the flow of this electric power.
The current produced in the PV modules is Direct Current (DC). However, most of the lights, appliances, and other electrical equipment in our homes operate on Alternating Current (AC). Next in the chain of energy flow is a device called an inverter, which gathers the DC produced by the array and converts it to AC which can be used in the home. The inverter regulates the AC power it outputs, so it can be safely used by even sensitive electronic devices such as televisions, computers, and audio equipment.
The AC output of the inverter is connected to the home’s main service panel, where it intermingles with the AC power supplied by the local electric utility. Net Metering refers to the physical (and financial) ability of a home’s electric meter to “run in both directions”. We are accustomed to power only flowing from the utility to the loads in our house. However, with the house now acting like a mini utility producing its own electricity, there will likely be times when electricity actually flows out of the house and to the utility.
Where To Face Solar Panels?
What Direction Should Solar Panels Face To Get The Best Exposure Of The Sun.
On a sunny day about noon, hold up a stick move it until there is no shadow...that is the perfect direction to point the panel...but yes...south is the simple answer
Where Are These Solar Panels Located?
Tons Of Giant Mirrors That Reflect The Suns Light Into A Tower In The Middle Which Heats Up The Water And Turns It Into Steam To Create Power. Where Is This Located
The Number one largest Solar Power Plants in the world is located in Olmedilla Photovoltaic (PV) Park, Spain."The entire plant was completed in 15 months at a cost of about $530 million at current exchange rates." That number being in US dollars.
Three of the top five worlds largest Solar Power Plants, are in Spain.
The United States has several plants being planned, one in New Mexico, (Rancho Cielo Solar Farm) and one in the California Valley (Topaz Solar Farm)
The Worlds largest( in construction) is to be in the Mojave Desert near Blythe is set to be in production(making electricity) sometime 2013 (this year). However, this Solar model will use the Parabolic Trough System, in which the panels will focus sunlight on tubes full of water, until it reaches boiling point. At that point, it will be sent to a boiler, which sends the steam through a turbine to produce electricity.
Where Are Solar Panels Used?
Where In The World Are Solar Panels Used. If It Is Used Widespread Across A Continent Just Say Which Continent, Other Than That, Just Name The Country. So Where Are Solar Panels Used Often?

They have been doing it for almost 20 years.
Solar Panel For Your Home?
So How Does A Solar Panel Work? Where Does The Energy Get Stored In? How Much Does One Cost For A Small 2 Family Home? How Much Money Would We Save On Electricity?
In the short, a solar panel is composed of many solar cells...all tied together and in some sort of a frame for mounting. When energy from the sun hits it, it creates a reaction which can feed electricity through leads to a converter system which takes the Direct Current power and converts it into Alternating Current. If you rewire your house for DC products I suppoes you wo'nt need the converter. but most of these systems are retro-fits.
Batteries provide back up source to the system when the sun goes down.
So solar is converted to electricity through the panel, which goes to your solar system which both provides power to the house and to recharge batteries. The batteries take over when the sun is down.
So you will need to know how much battery capacity you need by calculating the Amp hour rating of your applicances that you normally use at night like Microwave, TV, radio, refrigerator, etc. For some depending on the appliance....water heater (if electric) or stove)
then you need to figure out how many panels you need to provide your normal daily energy use, figure out how many batteries you need, set up a distribution system that gives you what you need where you want it and wa la.
Once done, you will be off the grid and paying nothing from the electrical utility. Some places due to deregulations allow you to sell excess power to local utilities too, but those systems need to meet tight standards.
