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 unit, washing clothes, seeing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are significant, lots of homeowners discover that the benefit, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically decrease or perhaps eliminate your electrical costs
Whether you're a house owner, company, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can make up a large portion of your regular monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your energy bills and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.
#2 Make an excellent return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power costs cost savings, the average American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, property electricity rates have gone up by an average of 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a service or house owner with fluctuating capital, going solar also assists you much better projection and manage your expenditures.
#4 Boost your residential or commercial property worth
Numerous studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher property worths and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need for residential or commercial properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key element of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost changes in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs at a rate almost 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 tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a terrific method to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A common domestic solar panel system will get rid of 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are essential components of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that opt to run responsibly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of customer purchasing decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing business results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Lots of house owners select to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The utility business are infamous for their fluctuating and undependable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can compute just how much electricity will be created, and most significantly, at what price, 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
- 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 Much Does It Cost To Get Solar Panels To Power A House?
About $10,000 to do a medium sized house. And then you have to make sacrifices to minimize electrical use.
Are Plug In Hybrid Vehicles Planning To Include A Solar Panel For Their Roof?
If A Solar Panel Could Be Carried In The Trunk Of A Vehicle And Was Placed On The Roof Once We Arrived At Our Sunny 20-40 Mile Destination And We Stayed There For Several Hours Or A Complete Work Day, It Seems It Could Be Locked In Place To Avoid Theft And Make At Least A Partial Charge For The Drive Home. If This Is Reasonable, What Would Be The Minimum Kw Panel Needed To Avoid Having To Use Any Fuel?
One is. Aptera is making an EV and plug-in hybrid which will have a solar panel on the roof.
Also the ZAP-X EV is supposed to have nano solar cells in its windows.
And the ZAP Xebra Xero has a solar panel on top.
And you can modify current hybrids to add a solar panel to the roof.
But I don't think the major auto companies (i.e. Chevy Volt) are planning on putting solar panels on their plug-ins.
How Much Does It Cost To Heat A Spa?
We Just Bought A House.. Came With A Hot Spring Spa (Envoy Model). We Just Got Our First Electric Bill In This New House $375! For One Month.. Mostly Electricity (1,400 Kwh Usage!). The House Is Larger That Our Old House, But Pretty Much Everything Else Is The Same. We Have A Second Refrigerator In The Garage, But Had That Before. About The Only Things Different Are The Hot Tub And The Greater Greater Square Footage. I Expected The Bill To Be Higher Than In Our Old Place, But I Did Not Expect It To Triple! I Even Had Turned The Spa To "Summer Mode" Were Is Shuts Off For 8 Hours A Day And We Only Keep It Set At 80 During The Week When We Don't Use It. The Hot Spring Dealer Claims We Should Be Able To Keep It Set At 104 24/7 And It Should Only Add About 30/ Month To Our Bill. Can Anybody Out There That Put In An Hot Tub Tell Me How Much Their Electricity Bills Increased?
They do use quite a bit of electricity. Some that I know who have them say their bills are high when left on and that's with a thermal cover over the top. Depending on what power the element you might try and see how long it takes to heat from cold and if you tend to use it later then turn it on. A solar panel could cut back on the time it takes to heat too.
I'm sure most who already have a spa tend to be a little lean on how much power they use and have never really done the test to be exact.
How Long Would It Take To Charge A Car Battery Using Solar Panels?
I Have 11 Mini Solar Panels I Harvested From Walkway Lights. All Together They Are Pulling 45Volts 23Ma. My Question Is How Long Would It Take To Charge A Car Battery So I Could Make A &Quot;Solar Generator&Quot; Using A 400 Watt Inverter. I Know A Deep Cycle Battery Would Be Better But I'M Trying To Keep This Cheap Since I Already Have A Battery To Work With.
Typically, you want to charge a car battery, or any lead-acid battery, at about 5% of capacity (C) at least. So if your car battery is rated at 100 Amp-hours, you would want to put at least 2 amps of current into it for slow charge. With the 23 mA you have now, it is unlikely that you could even keep up with the self-discharge rate of a car battery, and the battery would slowly lose energy, although at a much slower rate than if the battery were just standing alone.
What you could do is charge 10 NiCd batteries, maybe 11, then put those in series to power your inverter for a short time. By a short time, I mean perhaps 5 minutes before it goes off. NiMH batteries would not work as well, as they need pulse charging.
If Solar Panels Were Installed Throughout A Small Town How Much Money Would It Save?
Its A School Project And Its On Spanish Fort Alabama. It Dosnt Have To Be Accurate Just A Number That Sounds Reasonable.
As of 2007, the effective cost of solar power was 38 cents per kwh while the cost for coal power was 0.6 cents a kwh. They would not save any money at all, it would cost them much more for their energy needs unless they could get government subsidies and reduce their energy use.
