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 home owners to use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning system, cleaning clothes, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, many property owners discover that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically minimize or even eliminate your electrical bills
Whether you're a house owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can comprise a big part of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.
#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity costs cost savings, the typical American house owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, property electricity costs have actually increased by an average of three percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard against unforeseeable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a business or property owner with rising and falling money flow, going solar likewise assists you much better forecast and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home worth
Numerous research studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater home worths and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, demand for homes geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A common domestic solar panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are essential parts of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that choose to run properly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective driver of consumer getting decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing company outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Many house owners choose to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar supplier for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility business are infamous for their varying and undependable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate what does it cost? electricity will be created, and most notably, at what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).
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 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
Solar Panel Battery Charging?
So Idk How To Connect A Solar Panel To A Battery ...Is It Like A Series Connection From The Solar Panel To The Battery, Or A Parallel Connection From Solar Cell To Battery? (To Charge) Please And Thank You
it depends how big the panel is.
a small trickle charger (like a 2W panel with built-in diode), just connect + to + and - to - (parallel) to trickle charge the battery. The diode will keep the batter from discharging through the panel when there is insufficient sunlight.
for a large panel (like a 220W 24v panel), you best go through a charge controller. the charge controller has 2 leads for the solar panel input, 2 leads for the battery connection and 2 leads for the 12v load. just follow the instructions to connect the panel and battery to the controller, and MAKE SURE YOU USE THE REQUIRED FUSES.
very straightforward stuff -- just RTFM
How To Hook Up Solar Panels To Meter?
I Want To Know How To Hook Up Solar Panels To My Existing Power. All I Can Find On The Internet Is To Use Batteries And A Inverter. But I Want To Use All Of My Existing Lights And Outlets Off Of The Solar Energy. I Have Heard That You Can Actually Turn The Meter Backwards And Use Supplied Power When Needed. Thats What I Want To Do And Is It Possible To Do Myself And If So, How?
Im an ex solar installer. I dont know all the details but I know of 2 companies in hawaii that are doing what youre talking about - and yes, it feeds power back into the grid and makes your meter turn backwards.
uh... darn... locate a company that does that stuff and they will tell you best how and what and why. The electric comapny will know less as they are (believe it or not) behind the times.
21st century technologies is the co. in hawaii. the owner is way cool. its a full-on expensive system though, not some cheesy diy thing. its gnarley. you need the special panels and all that.
Photovoteic panels are really expensive. The system costs like 10k + but pays for itself after perhaps 6 years and then you reap the monthly check from the electric company for life (instead of you paying them)
Inh hawaii, the sun is strong = $$$ for solar. good luck in your....quest? whatever, man. Hope you find what youre looking for.,
So You Think You Can Solve This Physics-Geometry Challenge? :)?
Use Surface-Area-To-Volume Ratios To Explain Why Solar Panels Are Shaped Like Large Thin Rectangular Prisms.
All Answers Are Greatly Appreciated
Please Show All Your Work.
Thank You For Your Time And Effort =)
Solar panel material is expensive (higher volume = $$$).
Solar panels are only useful for their surface area.
Thus you want to maximize surface area and minimize volume.
That means you want a high SA / V ratio.
Then you would try different 3D shapes to show the highest SA / V ratio. For example, a cube has SA = 6h^2, V = h^3, so SA / V is 6/h. A sphere has SA = 4pi r^2, V = 4/3 pi r^3, so SA / V = 3 / r
Do that for rectangular prisms and you'll see that it works out the best.
How To Build A Solar Panel?
Please Give Detailed Answer And Source If Possible.
you can find many sites where you get a idea to assemble a solar panel by purchasing there components online but i don't believe that i suggest you to do heavy research go through the entire technology and basics i can give a basic idea The solar energy conversion into electricity takes place in a semiconductor device that
is called a solar cell. A solar cell is a unit that delivers a certain amount of electrical power
that is characterised by an output voltage and current. In order to use solar electricity for
practical devices, which require a particular voltage or current for their operation, a number of
solar cells are connected together to form a solar panel, also called a PV module. For largescale generation of solar electricity the solar panels are connected together into a solar array.
The solar panels are part of a complete PV solar system, which, depending on the
application, comprises batteries for electricity storage, dc/ac inverters that connect a PV solar
system to the electrical grid, and other miscellaneous electrical components or mounting
elements. These additional parts of the PV solar system form a second part of the system that
is called balance of system (BOS). Finally, the solar system includes products such as
household appliances; radio or TV set that use the solar electricity for their operation. We
refer to these products as a load.
In summary, the PV solar system consists of three parts:
i) solar panels or solar arrays,
ii) balance of system,
How Do Solar Panels Work?
I Need To Do A Paragraph On Solar Panels On How They Work And Stuff And What You Save And How Much They Are. Oh And I Need Ot Know What Disadvantages There Are For Having Them
Light impinging on the surface of the photovoltaic cell cause electrons to be kicked free. These electrons are encouraged to move due to specific impurities intentionally placed in the silicon lattice. Electron movement is current flow. So we attach a couple of electrodes and, voila, we have a photovoltaic cell.
There are lots of more detailed explanations available on the internet.
The disadvantages of photovoltaic cells are (among others)
1) high initial cost
2) low efficiency
3) they can only work when they have adequate sunlight
4) they produce low voltage DC, requiring large banks of (expensive) batteries to store enough power to be useful
5) they're fragile
