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 utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothes, enjoying TV, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are substantial, many home owners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly decrease or perhaps eliminate your electrical bills
Whether you're a house owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can make up a big portion of your regular monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not 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 Earn an excellent return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs savings, the typical American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, property electricity prices have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unpredictable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're an organisation or homeowner with rising and falling cash flow, going solar also helps you better projection and manage your expenses.
#4 Increase your home value
Multiple research studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher home values and offer more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, need for homes equipped with photovoltaic 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 accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop 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 overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is an excellent method to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A common property photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to 4 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are essential components of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding services that pick to operate properly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of customer purchasing decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Numerous homeowners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
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 infamous for their fluctuating and undependable electrical energy prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and easy math, we can calculate what does it cost? electricity will be produced, and most significantly, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired 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
How To Design A Solar Panel To Store Energy And Convert It Into Electrical Energy?
First Of All, To Be Honest I Have Totally No Idea On How A Solar Panel Works.
My Task Is To Design Something Like A Solar Powered Street Lamp Which Store Sun Energy During Day Time And Convert It Into Electrical Energy Then Light Energy So That The Lamp Can Work During Night Time.
Any Ideas On How To Design The Solar Panel? Which Can Store Enough Or More Enegry In Case There Is No Sunlight Another Day. And Low Cost As Well :D
solar panels change light into electricity, and do NOT store power.
You need a solar panel capable of enough power to keep the light on all night. And that may be 6 hours of sun and 12 hours of dark.
Then you need a set of batteries large enough to hold that energy. And a charge controller to regulate the charge into the batteries. And then a light that will operate on the battery voltage, say 12 volts.
This is probably not practical due to the large solar panel required, and the large batteries. But here is a few numbers. Assume a 100 watt light at 12 volts. Assume you get at least 6 hours of sun every day and the light will be on for 12 hours. That means the battery has to store 100*12=1200 watt hours. divide by 12 and that is 100 amp-hours, a large auto battery size.
Allowing for 20% losses in the battery and circuitry, that means you nee 1400 watt hours from the solar panel. Since it has 4 hours to operate, that means it has to deliver 1400/4 = 350 watts at 15 volts.
So there it is: 350 watt panel
100 amp hour battery
charge controller sized for above
100 watt light.
If you have to allow for a day with no sun, then you need more batteries. Two nights means 2400 watt-hours, two batteries, a larger charge controller and a 2800/4 = 700 watt panel.
cost: $400 for batteries
$200 for charge controller
$2000 for panel
Why Aren'T Electronics Made With Solar Panels?
Aren'T Batteries Bad For The Environment?
With Small Solar Panels Phones, Ipod'S, Laptops & Other Small Electronics Could Be Smaller, Slimmer, More Efficient & Cost People Less To Charge Every Day. Maybe A Small Battery Inside As A Backup And To Store The Solar Energy For Night Time. But Overall, Batteries Should Be Optional.
So Big Question:
Why Aren'T Electronics Being Produced With Solar Panels?
Cost and and it would be inconvenient to the consumer in this "Gotta have instant gratification" society. take the amount of money you paid for your MP3 player- double it- would you still have bought it at that price? That IS what happens when you add in a 2 to 10 dollar component.
Besides- the energy required for most items you cite- a solar panel makes it not portable.
While you might be able to arbittrarily decide to go without an MP3 player for 24 hours, could you do it for a week? How about your cell phone? It uses more power- so go without it for 2 weeks.
You still need batteries to be charged by solar panels due to one major flaw of solar panels- they do not work in the dark.
So in effect all you are really doing is weighing the device down with a solar panel, and you still have not gotten away from a need for a battery.
I don't know about you, but I have an MP3 player about the diameter of a 50 cent piece- where are you going to put the solar panel????? It will not have enough power to operate the device, and marginal at best for charginthe battery which would take hours instead of the minutes it takes connected to a USB port.
How Much Area Is Required To Build 10 Solar Panels?
My panels are approx. 2'x4', so you would need 80 sf for 10.
Why Is A Silvered Surface Is Used At The Back Of A Solar Panel?
One of the enemies of PVC solar panels is heat and the silver reflects some of the heat away, but not all solar panels are silver they deal with heat other ways.
How Do You Store Energy Using A Solar Panel?
I Want To Know How You Can Store Energy Using A Solar Panel. The Energy Stored Needs To Be Stored So That A Light Or Laptop Charger Can Plug In To It.
Solar panel is not a energy storing device, rather it converts light energy to electrical energy and this energy either can directly used to run instruments or can be fed to battery for storing.
The working of the solar panel is like the inverse action of a LED, i.e. a LED converts electrical energy in to light where as a solar panel converts light energy in to electrical energy, basically it is a P-N junction diode.
