About Solar Energy
Solar power is energy from the sun that is transformed into thermal or electrical energy.
Solar power makes it possible for property owner to use the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothing, seeing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are substantial, numerous property owners discover that the convenience, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably minimize or even eliminate your electrical costs
Whether you're a property owner, company, or nonprofit, electricity expenses can comprise a big part of your month-to-month expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your energy expenses and you'll still save a great deal of cash.
#2 Make a terrific return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power expense cost savings, the average American homeowner settles their solar 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 photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical power rates have increased by approximately three percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a service or house owner with ever-changing money flow, going solar also assists you better forecast and handle your expenses.
#4 Boost your home or business value
Several research studies have discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater property values and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, demand for homes geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial part of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate variations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A typical property photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are very important parts of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that select to run properly. Organisations are finding that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of customer acquiring decisions, producing goodwill and improving business results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Many property owners opt to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar supplier for electrical power-- 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 utility companies are notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can determine just how much electrical power will be produced, and most notably, at what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).
What are the various payment options?
- 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

Frequently Asked Questions
What Specification Of Solar Panel Do I Need?
What Specification Of Solar Panel Would I Need To Power A Laptop Every Day? I Would Need To Use It For About 10 Hours Or So Every Day. I Don'T Know Anything About Solar Panels, But I Am Seriously Thinking Of Getting One Now And Don'T Know Who To Ask.
You will need, A battery to store the electricity from the solar panel. The amount of electricity from the panel varies up and down as things such as clouds, position of the sun, etc. reduce the amount of solar rays hitting the panel. The battery stores it all, the ups and downs, and sends it back out at a steady voltage so you can operate your p.c. / appliance.
A minimum of 45 watts solar panel. 60 watts would be preferable. 45 watts will charge a battery in one day under ideal conditions. You turn the panel as the sun moves across the sky, no clouds. 60 watts will charge a battery in one day with out moving and regardless of clouds.
A controler to prevent the electricity from flowing backwards from the battery to the solar panel when the sun goes behind a cloud or sets at night and the charge drops below the voltage of the battery. A good controller will tell you the charge condition of your battery so you know when it is too low to operate your p.c. safely.
And finally an inverter with "True Sine Wave" capability to change the electricity from the battery into usuable power for your PC and other electronics.
Not all inverters produce true sine wave electricity. The electricity has static in it and will make your pc screen jump around and not function as it should. New digital T.V.'s also require true sine wave electricity to operate. Go the extra cost and get the inverter with true sine wave and be happy with the way your p.c. functions.
Figure out how many Watts your p.c. or appliance will draw. and match the Inverter to the need. Do not go too big, as they cost more and consume more of your stored electricity to operate. Save as much electricity as you can. You will be able to operate your p.c. appliance longer.
When not using your p.c., you can operate your T.V. or other low watt appliance.
Where Can I Find Info On Starting A Solar Panel/Energy Company?
I Have An Existing Business And Would Like To Start A Company Installing/Manufacturing Solar Panels. Creating Solar Energy Interests Me Also.
My husband has been an installer of Solar pool heating and Solar Hot Water heaters, and other things with solar for about 5 years now, we are also looking to open our own solar company, the requirements here in florida are that you have been in the solar field for 4 years and 1 year as a supervisor, then you have to buy all the books (12 in total) and stufy them and take an Exam to actually be able to get your license, so if you want to open the business doing solar you have to know solar but while i was looking into it i noticed it said "You can also substitute up to three years of college credit hours for experience." and the college credits do not need to be construction related, i guess the best thing to do is type in yahoo "Solar license & the state you live in because each state has their own requirements! one thing is the company my husband works for, they pay about $1,800 for material and sell the systems for about $9,000, so theres money to be made!! good luck and let me know how it goes!
What Type Off Solar Panel Is Best (Flat Or Tube)?
I Am Building A New House And I Want To Know What Type Off Panel Is Best And How Much It Should Be I Live In N Ireland
If it's never going to freeze, go flat. That's the standard solar hot water in Hawaii.
If it has a miniscule chance of freezing, you could still get a flat panel, but would need to have a pressure relief valve on it, and maybe have the kind of system you can completely drain.
The evacuated tube type of collector costs more, but has the advantage that you can put whatever liquid you like in the tube, to transfer the heat to a tank below. Antifreeze is often used, like in the radiator of your car.
Where Can I Fing A Comperisson Between Manufactures Of Solar Pv Panels World Wide?

Hey Ofir, you need to subscribe to Home Power Magazine. It's the only periodical that gets into the nuts and bolts of what you are asking about. About 3 or 4 issues ago they did a comparison of all known commercially available solar panels on the market today. The list compares about 20 items, such as power output, warranty period, size, weight, degradation due to temperature and lifetime, and so on. Each issue they take something related to renewable energy, like inverters, wind turbines, charge controllers, and so on, and compare all the models available.
We started subscribing about 12 years ago, and it's where I still get lots of my information today. Our home is now powered entirely by the wind and sun, so in our case it's been good research over the years. I don't know anyplace else to get the in depth information you are asking for, but I will list some other non profit sources below you can look for on the net, but you'd be better off to just go to Home Power and pay the annual fee, it isn't expensive, then you can research back issues at their website and read any articles in the past, including the one on solar panels. Good luck, and take care...Rudydoo
What Items Use Solar Panels?
How Do They Use Them Too? Best Answer Will Be Chosen!
Technically any item can use solar energy. To understand why you must understand how solar energy works.
A solar panel can use different materials (Poly-crystalline, mono-crystaline, etc.) This material along with the polarity between the front and back side of the solar cell turns sunlight into an electrical current. After connecting enough of these cells to get the amount of power you need there are multiple ways to harness this energy.
Solar panels produce DC (direct current) electricity, this is the type that is stored by batteries such as phones, ipod's, and even car batteries. However, your house runs on AC (alternating Current) electricity. The method I use for home installation is to run the current from the Solar Panel into a charge controller, the charge controller keeps you from overcharging your battery and destroying it. Then from the charge controller the current is then put into a battery backup bank. This battery backup bank will store the energy until the sunlight is no longer producing the power that the house is calling for. From the battery you must then use a inverter. The inverter changes the "DC" power to "AC" power making it usable for the home.
There are different ways to run the power into your home or back into the grid system and even get paid for the energy you make.
