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 use the sun to power daily life: running your ac system, cleaning clothes, seeing TV, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, numerous homeowners find that the benefit, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably decrease or even remove your electrical expenses
Whether you're a property owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can make up a big portion of your monthly 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 take in, solar will reduce your utility bills and you'll still conserve a lot of money.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power bill cost savings, the average American property owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, property electrical power prices have actually increased by an average of three percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and protect against unforeseeable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a company or homeowner with fluctuating capital, going solar also assists you much better forecast and manage your expenses.
#4 Boost your house value
Numerous studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, need for residential or commercial properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial part of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added tasks 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 expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent method to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A common residential photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are necessary parts of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding services that select to operate properly. Businesses are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective driver of consumer buying choices, creating goodwill and improving service results.
#9 Start Saving 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 money down.
Lots of homeowners opt to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The energy companies are notorious for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can compute what does it cost? electricity will be generated, and most importantly, at what rate, for a minimum of 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.
Frequently Asked Questions
How To Use A Home-Made Solar Panel?
Are you referring to an Electrical Generating Panel, or a Passive water heating panel?
Edit: Can you explain how you made a 'home made' solar panel without understanding how it would be used?
How Does The Solar Power System Run With Electrical Energy?
I Need To Write A Report. Please Help!! :)
There are several different types of solar panels to capture solar energy for homes. There are also a number of ways to concentrate solar energy for use in power stations.
Solar panels can be photovoltaic and produce electricity. By combining the panels in a series you are electrically concentrating the energy.
A different type of Solar panels can also capture the suns thermal (heat) energy which is used for heat, hot water, and air conditioning. Often these systems contain air or hot water that is heated and stored (concentrated) in a tank or other storage facility.
For concentrating solar power (thermal) that is then used to produce electricity some of the systems are called:
Solar power tower (using heliostats focused on a central tower)
Solar parabolic trough collector
Solar fresnel lens (using flat mirrors and similar to parabolic trough)
Solar parabolic dish collector (with a stirling engine)
Solar chimney (also sometimes called a solar tower)
Where Can I Buy A Dc/Ac Solar Cell Inverter With An Input Of 45 V To 110 V Output?
you need a battery and a charge controller. the better charge controllers have switching type DC-DC converters to get the max energy out of the array and into the battery.
Then use a standard inverter to generate the 110-120 VAC.
Answer These Questions About Light?
What Is This Type Of Radiation? (Is It Electromagnetic?)
How Can It Be Used?
Use Diagrams To Help Explain Uses (Links To Websights?)
How Can This Type Of Radiation Be Used For Communication?
What Are Limitations Of It?
Is There Any Danger In Using It?
Light is a form of ElectroMagnetic (EM) radiation. It is composed of visible light for colors, InfraRed light for heating, and Ultraviolet light (high energy). UV is needed for photosynthesis of plants.
It can be used to see things, heat things (solar water, IR cooking lamps, and UV curing lights).
Light is used fiber optics with LASER emission types of light:
The limitation is that it cannot go thru objects (typically) and solar energy requires a large area to collect it.
Light is used for many things and most recently for solar energy to reduce our carbon emissions in global climate changes. It is a free, clean, and green renewable energy source;
High internsity light like LASERs can blind or burn, UV light has been known to cause skin cancer if exposed for long periods of time, UV light degrades materials and causes colors to fade, IR light will give you sunburn.
Fossil Fuels Vs Renewable Energy?
What Are The Actual Arguments For Both?
Fossil fuels have a lot of infrastructure in place.
They are extremely cheap to extract and use - most costs are not paid by the manufacturer/distributors but show up in public health and municipal cleanup budgets.
Fossil fuels provide better range in mobile applications than other known forms of storage.
Prices for renewables, especially solar photovoltaic, are dropping rapidly and are already competitive in many areas.
Price and performance of battery storage is also improving rapidly.
It is far easier to deliver useful amounts of energy to areas with no pre-existing grid with local/household level renewables than with centralized powerplants. The distributed/localized applications also bypass the huge costs and delays imposed by corrupt governments on new fossil fuel plants, dams, and distribution grids.
Integrating distributed sources requires a smarter grid, but that becomes a much more efficient and reliable distribution system with far more reliable power from local sources.
A tiny example - I live approximately one mile from the nearest available grid power. My solar system cost under $3000 for enough power to run my homestead. That's less than 1/10 the cost of getting grid power to the place from the grid and my power is more reliable than the local grid. Nearest neighbors on the grid have had power outages lasting over 2 days from 3 storms this year, nearest town had one week without power from a storm that didn't affect me more than the nuisance of walking through a foot of snow and remembering to brush the snow off the solar panels in the morning.
