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 resident to use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, cleaning clothing, watching TV, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, lots of home owners find that the benefit, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Leading Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically reduce or even eliminate your electric costs
Whether you're a property owner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can comprise a big portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.
#2 Earn a great return on your investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity expense savings, the average American house owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, residential electricity rates have increased by approximately three percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and safeguard versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're a business or property owner with ever-changing cash circulation, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and manage your expenditures.
#4 Increase your property worth
Multiple studies have found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher home values and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, need for properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential component of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included 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 growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A common property solar panel system will eliminate 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are necessary elements of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that select to operate properly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of consumer buying decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing organisation results.
#9 Start Saving 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 cash down.
Numerous homeowners pick to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This means that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility business are infamous for their changing and undependable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can determine what does it cost? electrical energy will be produced, and most significantly, at what cost, for at least the next 20 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.

Which Is Greener; Building A Home Or Buying A Home?
So I'M Becoming More Interested In Being Self Sufficient And Environmentally Friendly. I Would Like To Build A Dream Home Out Of Straw Bales And Mud On A Farm In The Country With Solar Panels And A Recycling Water System. Then I Started Wondering If Buying An Existing House Then Using Recycled Building Materials For Refurbishing So The House Can Be More Environmentally Friendly. So, Which Is Better At Achieving My Goal, Building Or Buying?
If you like building a green house, there are very good ebooks on solar panels http://ecovivencias.blogspot.com/2010/05...
Which Is The Best Way To Arrange 3W Solar Panels? (Series Or Parallel)?
What Are The Advantages And Disadvantages Of Using Such Arrangements?
There is no disadvantage, no advantage. Which way you connect them is dependent on the operating voltage required for efficient operation of whatever you connect to them.
No matter which connection you use, the product of output voltage and current will still be the same (the power output).
Need A Relay Switch For Solar Panel...........
Suggest Me A Good Relay Switch....?
I Have Solar Panel, Charge Controller And Battery. I'M Using Diode For Blocking Reverse Current. I Believe Diodes Can Cause Power Loss. So I'M Thinking Of Relay Switch. It Should Turn On If There Is A Power Coming From Solar Panel. It Should Turn Off If There Is No Power Coming From Solar Panel...
Which Type Of Relay Is Needed?
BUY 12V COIL VOLTAGE TYPE RELAY IF YOUR SOLAR PANEL HAS 12V OUTPUT, THE CONTACT RATE FOR SMALL RELAY HAS 1A TILL 50A , THAT YOU NEED TO FIND OUT WHAT IS THE MAXIMUM CHARGING CURRENT THROUGH IT, SUPPOSE ITS IS 10A, THEN CHOOSE 20A TYPE TO MAKE THE RELAY LASTS LONG LIFE. ONE SET OF CONTACTS IS GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOUR WORK.
I Am Asking About The Solar Panels?
I Check The Diodes In The Backside Of Solar Panels It Reads Out To Be 0.433 Each Give Me The Same Result But I Was Amazed When I Check Out The Last Two One Which On Clamp Meter Screen Give Me ''0L''
What This Means? Is That Diode Have Malfunctions??Is This Reasons That The Output Of Solar Has Been Decreased? Plz Give Me Right Answer By Viewing The Image On
Details Are In Image.
Sorry but the details in the image are unreadable.
Here's what an OL can mean: Open Line, or Over Limit. It depends on the manufacturer of the meter. However, given that your meter is reading 0.433 (something - don't know if this is ohms, volts or amps) and the other (suspect) diodes are giving you a different reading - you may have to do some further testing.
Check for voltage from each side of the diode to ground. Hopefully your system is properly grounded, and you should see some voltage (DC voltage) to ground. Check it on the side without the color band (white band) then check it on the other side. The reading should be just about the same. Without a more detailed wiring diagram I can't tell for sure how those last two diodes are "In The Circuit".
A general understanding of diodes would suggest they should all read approximately the same. Since they are wired in "Diode Sets" they're probably meant to offer reverse current protection. On the right side of the picture is the positive lead, as indicated by the plus sign molded into the plastic box. So you don't have an inverter on each panel (common today). You have power going either to an inverter or to a bank of batteries that powers an inverter. But since there is an additional lead (I don't know where it comes from) bridging those two diodes, I suspect you may discover more information if you check for voltage across each diode pair.
Perhaps a better question to ask is "My PV system is malfunctioning. These are the readings I'm getting". Then detail what you are seeing.
The white band on the diode indicates the positive side of the diode. Since the positive side of the diode is to the positive side of the wiring the diodes are not used functionally to control current, except for the possibility of that third lead in the middle. Mostly they appear to be a reverse current protection.
I hope I've answered your question. As to why you're getting an OL indication - that I don't know. And Power Generation, Management & Distribution is my specialty. Been doing that for 30 years. Don't know if I can be of more help, but I'll try if I get more details on what you're doing, what you see and why you're even checking.
Best of luck with your project.
