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 property owner to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, washing clothes, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while reducing 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 substantial, lots of property owners find that the convenience, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly lower and even eliminate your electric expenses
Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can make up a big portion of your regular monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate 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 lower your utility bills and you'll still conserve a lot of money.
#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power expense savings, the typical American homeowner settles their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical power rates have actually increased by approximately 3 percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure against unpredictable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a company or property owner with rising and falling cash flow, going solar likewise assists you much better projection and handle your expenses.
#4 Boost your home or business worth
Multiple research studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and sell more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers 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 a crucial part of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost changes in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Since 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 Secure the environment
Solar is a terrific way to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A typical residential solar panel system will get rid of three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are very important elements of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that opt to operate properly. Services are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of consumer getting decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Saving 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 loan down.
Numerous house owners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The energy business are infamous for their changing and unreliable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can calculate just how much electrical power will be created, and most significantly, at what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
Questions About Renewable Energy?
If Someone Was Wanting To Build A House That Utilized Renewable Energy, Why Is It Important That The House Faces The North? What Kinds Of Renewable Energy Would Need The House To Be Facing North And Why? Thanks
Facing the house South or North depends upon which hemisphere you live in. In the Northern Hemisphere the Sun appears to move South in the winter, so you would want your solar panels and windows facing South to take full advantage of the sunlight. Ideally the North wall should have no windows at all (except for perhaps an artist's room) and it is even better if the entire wall is built underground.
I Need To Connect A Solar Panel To A 400Watt Inverter. What Size, Watt, Amp Solar Panel Do I Need?
I Need To Connect A Solar Panel To A 400Watt Inverter. What Size, Watt, Amp Solar Panel Do I Need?
I'm Trying To Run My Inverter Off Of A Solar Panel, But So Far My 12V, 150Ma Doesn't Work. I'm Guessing That It Has To Be A Certain Ampere And/Or Wattage. Please Help!!
A panel labeled as 12V, 150mA has a practical output of 1 watt, so probably far less than needed to even start up your inverter. I'm guessing that the inverter is the type that normally plugs into a car? Those are not especially efficient, because they know the car's battery can supply ample current, and they want to be low-cost.
What you could do is charge a car battery over a period of weeks with your panel, then connect the inverter to the car battery.
Another experiment, if you can get an ammeter, is to measure how much the inverter is drawing from the car battery when you have your desired device plugged into it. That will tell you what current you need from your solar panel.
My wild guess is that you would want at least 80 to 100 watts of panel, unless you wanted to power something that's several hundred watts, in which case, you would buy a panel (say) 40% bigger than your load. This is because the cheap inverter will waste a lot of energy as heat.
Is It True Thet Solar Panels. . ?
Dont/Cant Work Alone?
When You Buya Asolar Panel You Must Get Batteries, Voltage Regulators And Many Else Stuff?
Cant They Just Work Directly? Or Can I Use Normal Batteres Like Car Batteries?
The One Who Really Knows 10 Pts.
Solar panels provide DC current, and can work great on things that use DC current, just the same as a car battery.
however to run things that run off from AC current you need a power inverter, you can get one in many stores in the camping supplies, mine cost $40, and when I was living off from the grid, I would run my TV, and VCR off my car battery for 3 to 4 hours, or an electric light bulb for several hours.
Buy contacting your local electric company, you can hook directly into the grid with a 2 way meter and store your energy on the grid, so that when you are producing more power that you are using, the meter runs backwards, and you get credit for that power and can use it when you need it.
This is just some of the power inverters available.
How Does Solar Pannel Electricity Work?
I Mean, How Does It Work During The Night When The Sun Isn'T Out? Is There A Battery Generator Being Charged Of A Day That Goes Into Battery Power Of A Night, Or Something?
During the day when the sun is up, you generate electricity which is stored in your grid for when you need it, during the night you do not generate any electricity because the sun is not up, however you still have the electricity generated from that day. Also during the night you tend not to use a lot of electricity.
You might also be wondering what happened what you use up all you generated electricity, well your electricity company still provides you with electricity as a back up which you only use when you need it, this is why your electricity bill is extremely low when you have solar panels on your roof. Another upside to having solar panels is that for every watt of electricity you product, the government pays you roughly 45p per watt.
Hope this helped!
So I'M Wanting To Eventually Get Solar Panels.?
I'Ve Heard Environmentalists Like Ed Begley Jr Use The Phrase &Quot;Peak Shaving Hours&Quot; When Talking About Solar Energy.What Does That Phrase Mean, Please?Thank You To All Who Respond.
From a power company's perspective, it costs more to supply electricity during hours when electricity use is high. The times of day when power use is the highest are called "peak" hours.
Historically power companies would sometimes charge large power users a higher rate during peak hours to encourage them to shift their electricity use to other times of the days.
With the development of smart power meters and smart grid technology, it's now possible to offer the same incentive to individual home owners.
>so i'm wanting to eventually get solar panels.?
If you live in an area where the electric rate varies depending on the time of day, then "peak shaving" improves your payback/return of investment on grid tied solar panels.
Particularly in areas with high air conditioner usage, the peak hours generally correspond to the times when solar panels generate the maximum power.
Look at it like this: Suppose your power company charges you $0.15/kWH during off peak hours and $0.30/kWH during peak hours.
Because the solar panels generate the most power when the cost of electricity is the highest, it is easier to justify the cost of installing the panels because you are avoiding buying electricity at the highest rate.
If your power company just bills you at a flat rate at all times, then it becomes more difficult to justify the cost of installing the panels and associated equipment..
