"They did a wonderful job on my system and I would recommend them to my family and friends!" - Georg S. - Chicopee MA

I cannot express my gratitude for going forward with solar panels. From the initial meeting to discuss the possibility to the techs who eventually installed them. But most of all, it is the savings we have experienced. That first month was unbelievable. Solar plus our other electric source combined was less than our usual monthly expense. During the summer when our electric usage is higher because of the air conditioning, our monthly expense was still less than what we have paid with past summer usage. And if that’s not enough…our present electricity is primarily supplied by the solar panels. We have been building up a reserve with our other electricity source and will be able to draw from that all winter when our panels wont’t generate as much electricity. It’s a win-win situation that we’re just thrilled over. Having a fixed rate locked in is another great feature for savings.” – Virgil T. – Westport MA

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 Benefits

Solar power makes it possible for homeowner to use the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c unit, washing clothing, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are substantial, numerous home owners discover that the convenience, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.

Leading Advantages of Solar Energy

#1 Considerably reduce or perhaps remove your electrical expenses

Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your energy bills and you'll still save a great deal of cash.

#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment

Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy expense cost savings, the average American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Safeguard versus rising energy costs

One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, property electricity rates have gone up by approximately three percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and safeguard against unpredictable boosts in electricity 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 Boost your home worth

Several research studies have actually found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and offer quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial 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 component of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price variations in worldwide energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is expected to continue. Since 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 Protect the environment

Solar is a fantastic way 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 solar panel system will remove 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no money down.

Many homeowners choose to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This means that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.

#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment

The energy companies are infamous for their changing and unreliable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.

With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can compute how much electricity will be generated, and most notably, at what rate, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Power My Electric Air Conditioner With Solar Panels?
Do I Have To Buy A Solar Air Conditioner To Power It With Solar Power, Or Can I Use My Regular Electric Air Conditioner? The Solar A.C.S Are Crazy Expensive, So I Want To Use What I Have. Is That Possible? And If So, How Do I Do It?

Hi I am the owner of Mountain Wind & Solar http://mountainwindnsolar.com (please be aware though that this website is still under construction).

Yes you can, it is as simple as this:

install the solar panels
Hook the DC output of the solar panels up to a DC to AC inverter
Plug your air conditioner into the DC to AC inverter
Wa LA you have a solar paneled air conditioner.

be aware that you will have to make sure that you have enough solar power to run the air conditioner.

If you have any other questions about energy, wind turbines, or solar panels feel free to email me at [email protected]

If Smoking Is So Bad For Us, Why Do Companies Still Sell Them?
Also, If Solar Energy Things (Like Solar Panels, Electric Cars Etc) Are Good For The Planet, Why Are They So Expensive?

Cigars and cigarettes are still sold because it is free will of the smoker to continue. Tobacco companies have obviously found their way out of lawsuits and laws.

Solar is expensive because
(a) It is a new, not fully contained energy source.
(b) Some people will go green no matter what the cost, so the solar companies charge extra.

Poll:Life In 2100......?
Just Hypothetical

I think Canada and the US will merge together and become the biggest country on Earth. India will have bustling businesses, the streets will be cleaner, the people will be more liberated. Gay marriage will be legal. People will be less religious. There will be solar power in everything. Roof shingles will be mini solar panels to power individual buildings. Cars will have solar panels to power them. Cancer will be cured.

If I Connect A Solar Panel To A Rechargable Battery, Will It Charge The Battery?
If The Circut Just Goes Solar Panel To Battery And Back To Solar Panel, With No Other Components, Will The Battery Charge?

Even assuming that you got the connections the right way round, you will still have some problems. Obviously the voltage produced by the solar panel in the light must be higher than the voltage on the battery when it is fully charged, otherwise the charging current will not flow. However, in the dark the voltage on the solar panel drops and the battery will discharge back through the panel. At the very least, therefore, you will need a blocking diode in the circuit to prevent that happening.

How Many Solar Panels Does It Take To Power A House?≫?

I will first answer your question and then rant on the answers you got so far.

To power your home you need to get your last 12 months electric bills and total the kWh for the year and divide it by 365 days. That gives you your daily usage. In most areas in the USA there is 4 to 5 hours of Peak Sun. You would then divide the daily usage by the peak sun hours and that is how many solar modules you will need. Then you will need to size an inverter. If you are on the Grid you do not need batteries because the grid is the biggest battery in the world. In most states you can roll over your over production from one month to the next for a full year. So your big months in the summer will pay for the less sun months in the winter.

I have noticed that the same people keep saying the same thing over and over and have no idea of what they are talking about. I have answered this question over and over and even showed 30 years of math to prove it.

I have done the math over and over at 7.5 cents per kWh and without any grants or insentives you will pay off a solar electric system in about 30 years.

Think about a few things. Like you are renting electric from the utility. I don't see where you are gaining anything at all from renting? You do not have any thing in the end. But if you were to buy a solar electric system no matter what your cost per kWh is, you can sell the system with your home and get every penny you spent on it back. So your cost was Zero and you had years of free electric as well.

People need to add in all the taxes they pay over the years as well .You will pay 8% in taxes. Plus there is an inflation rate of a minium of 3.5% every year. That alone would be more savings in taxes and inflation then the intrest on your loan. You don't pay taxes on the power you make your self.

Then there is a tax break because it is a home improvment and at the minute you can get up to 2000 dollars tax credit just for installing solar.

I have yet to understand why people want to say it cost so much. Maybe they don't know anything about it is my guess.

Check it out for your self is the best way. Call a solar electric dealer.
