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 homeowner to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your a/c unit, washing clothing, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, many home owners find that the convenience, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly lower and even eliminate your electric bills
Whether you're a house owner, business, or nonprofit, electricity expenses can comprise a big portion of your month-to-month expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your energy bills and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity expense savings, the average American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the previous ten years, property electrical energy costs have actually increased by an average of 3 percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and protect versus unpredictable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're an organisation or property owner with rising and falling money flow, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and manage your costs.
#4 Boost your home value
Several studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater property values and offer quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, demand for properties geared up with solar 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 element of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a terrific way to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A normal property solar panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are necessary elements of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding organisations that decide to run responsibly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of consumer getting decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing organisation results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Numerous house owners select to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy 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 notorious for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy prices. There is plainly an upward trend.
With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can determine what does it cost? electrical power will be created, and most importantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired 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
Can I Charge A 6 Volt Golf Cart Battery With 36 Volt Solar Panel?
Will Too Many Volts Harm The Battery? It'S A 6V Deep Cycle Battery, But Do I Need A Downstep Transformer Or Is This Not A Problem?
Solar Panel- 136 Watts 36V-42V (Depending On Sun)
The current will be limited by the internal resistance of the panel. Transformers don't work with DC.
With those numbers, the current would probably be limited to somewhere in the 2-4 amp range. I don't know the size of the battery, but this would probably not harm it, as this is probably only a trickle charge.
However, most of the energy from the panel would be wasted under those conditions. the 136 watts winds up as 24 watts into the battery, the rest wasted as heat in the solar panel. In fact, the panel may not work well under those conditions, it may overheat.
A good charge controller (an electronic box) will adjust the output voltage and input voltage to maximize the transfer to the battery and also prevent overcharging.
edit: downstepper? interesting term. Actually it is a DC-DC converter that converts 24 to 12 volts. But the specs say the input can't go above 28 volts, so that is not the proper device, it would burn out. And it would damage the battery aksi, And you want an output tailored for charging a battery, not a fixed voltage.
Again, get a charge controller that is specified for your battery voltage and size. they present the proper load to the solar panel to get the most power out of it, and also control the battery charging to charge it at the proper rate.
Can Solar Panels Help Stop Global Warming?
Since Solar Panels Work By Converting Light Into Electricity, Wouldn'T That Heat Coming From Sunlight Actually Be Captured By The Solar Panels, Or Will The Energy In The Form Of Heat Not Be Consumed Solar Panels?
The only thing they do is replace other forms of power generation, like fossil fuels. For that, they help stop global warming.
It doesn't matter if the light is converted to heat or electricity. Eventually, all energy ends up as heat, like your TV or microwave. And all that light is shining down on the surface of the Earth whether or not a solar panel is underneath it.
Why Are The Conservatives So Anti Environmental?
Jimmy Carter Put Up Solar Panels At The White House . When Reagan Got Elected He Took Them Down. Now All You Non Believers Want To Build More Soot Spewing Coal Fired Power Plants.I Don'T Get It, Why Are You So Against Renewable Energy? As In Solar, And Wind Generated Energy.
I don't get it either - even if you don't believe in global warming, do you really think all of these things like factories are good for the environment? It just seems like common sense to use things that don't have such detrimental effects.
Why Have Not So Many Americana'S Switched To Solar Heating?
Fossil Fuels Will Be Running Out. They Are Not Enviornmental Friendly To The Enviornment. The Cutting Of Trees For Fuel Takes The Oxygen Out Of The Air Of The Earth. The Ozone Layer Is Disappering Slowly. Smog And Pollution Are Not Creating Havoc With Personnal Health And Causing A Crisises In Cancer Risk. They Also Create Acid Rain That Destroys The Oxgenating Plants And Food Sources In Which We Eat.
Solar Heating Is Cheaper And Pays For Itself After Installation. Federal And State Governments Offer Incentives For Heating Credits And Enviornmental Tax Credits For Installing Solar Or Wind Energy.
Farmers Can Recieve Agricultural Grants.Public And Non Profits Will Receive Tax Incentives For Solar Systems.

This Is A Poll For My College Paper. Please Assist In My Poll.
Up until very recently solar panels were not very efficient, and you would have to cover your whole house with panels and still need power from the power company, all with a large up front financial investment. This has discouraged the move to solar. It is changing rapidly, and when the ratio moves enough in the other direction so that when you switch you will no longer need to buy power and can in many instances sell your surplus back to the power grid, you can bet the change will happen fast.
Is It Possible To Have Transparent Solar Panels That Can Act As Windows? Is It Safe?
not as windows itself but part of the architecture
