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 everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, cleaning clothes, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, many property owners find that the benefit, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably decrease and even remove your electric expenses
Whether you're a property owner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can comprise a big portion of your month-to-month expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll create free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your energy costs and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.
#2 Make a great return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the finest methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power bill cost savings, the average American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, residential electrical energy costs have actually increased by approximately three percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure versus unforeseeable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a business or homeowner with rising and falling money circulation, going solar likewise assists you much better forecast and handle your costs.
#4 Increase your home or business value
Multiple studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, demand for homes equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial element of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost changes in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added jobs 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. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent method to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A typical residential photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are necessary parts of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding services that opt to operate responsibly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of consumer acquiring choices, producing goodwill and improving service results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Many house owners opt to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy 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 energy companies are well-known for their fluctuating and undependable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and easy math, we can compute what does it cost? electrical energy will be created, and most significantly, at what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed 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

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
Is Solar Power Carbon Neutral? Why?
Yes it is. There's no carbon present in the solar radiation to begin with, and electrical equipment does not make it, so there is no carbon put into the atmosphere to make the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide.
There's no carbon in electricity per sè, either; that's why the hybrid car will emit no greenhouse gases while running solely on its electric battery. Where the carbon comes from is the power plants that make the electricity in the first place (and the one that made the hybrid car), if those power plants burn some sort of fuel to run the plant. Hydroelectric power plants, for example, that utilize flowing water to generate electricity, are also environmentally-friendly.
As would solar power plants be - whether or not you had solar panels on your house.
What Percentage Of Solar Panels & Windmills Built In The Us Are Built Using Illegals?
Months Ago When Obama Toured A Solar Panel Manufacturing Plant All Of The Workers Were Told To Stay Home That Day. The Vast Majority Were Hispanics.
Didn'T Obama Want A Bunch Of Illegals In His Green Energy Photo Op?
Almost none. Those kind of manufacturing jobs are high paying, skilled labor jobs, the kind that Americans in unions have. There's no need for unskilled undocumented workers.
Can you cite a source, and a factual one at that? Every photo I can find of Obama's solar plant photo ops show him with workers. If "all" the workers stayed home, who is that he's with?
How Do You Know If A Solar Panel Is Dc Or Ac?
My Solar Panel Shows A Dc Charge And An Ac Charge I Was Reading The Nec Code Book And It Says That There Are Ac And Dc Solar Panels So I Was Wondering How To Tell, Also How Would You Find The Wattage Of Something Using A Multimeter?
The only way a solar panel can output AC is if its natural DC is put through an on-board inverter (oscillator) that will turn the DC into AC.
Wattage only makes sense with a load connected to the panel. It is the product of the voltage generated by the panel and the current drawn by its load. When you have a load on there put the leads of the multimeter across the voltage terminals while it is set to Voltmeter function. Put the leads of the multimeter in series with the load while it is set to Ammeter function. Some of the more expensive panels have meters built in to answer the power question constantly.
How Much Oil Is Used To Manufacture Batteries And Solar Panels?
Are Battery Casings Made From Oil, And Are Solar Panels Made From Some Percentage Of Oil? And Fan Blades For Wind Turbines?
50 years ago, casings for automotive batteries were made from asphalt, a waste byproduct of crude oil refining. modern automotive casings are made of plastic. these and the other plastics are made from oil, but not necessarily crude oil (fossil fuel). plastics can also be made from plant oil with soya being the most common.
Why Are There So Few Energy Efficient Houses?
There Is Something Really Wrong With How Houses Are Built Today, Especially In Colder Climates. This Is Not A Technological Challenge Since We Can Easily Build Energy Efficient Houses And Reinvent The Wheel So To Speak. Instead It Is Ignorance. It Would Make A Lot More Sense To Have Houses With Big South Facing Windows, That Are Extremely Well Insulated And Partly Built Into The Ground Since The Ground Will Always Be Warmer Throughout The Winter, And Cooler In Summer. I Am Astounded That Houses Look Almost The Same As They Did 100 Years Ago. In Fact A Lot Of Houses Are Built To Even Poorer Standards Than They Were Back Then. If Houses Were Simply Built Right My Bet Is You Could Probably Reduce Energy Bills By 3/4Ths. Ie Big Windows, Skylights Partly Sunken Into The Ground And Solar Panels.
It's a matter of choice, do you spend 30% more for a house that you can't afford without a mortgage that you barely qualify for? Or do you accept a smaller home with fewer luxuries in a less desirable neighborhood just so that you can have an efficient home. It's the old pay now or pay later problem and everyone chooses to pay later even though it may be a greater cost.
