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 homeowner to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothes, seeing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, many home owners discover that the convenience, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.

In the previous 10 years, domestic electricity rates have actually increased by an average of 3 percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard versus unpredictable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a service or property owner with rising and falling cash circulation, going solar likewise assists you much better forecast and handle your costs.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

Solar is an excellent method to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number.

Numerous property owners pick to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You just 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 Investment
The energy companies are well-known for their varying and undependable electrical energy prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are Solar Panels Worth It?? I Mean The Price You By For Them Up Front Is A Lot, So You Properly Need A Loan For It. So How Does It Work? Won'T The Loan Be Just As Much As You Electric Bill?
Im Just Really Confused About It.
If your purchasing solar panels for a building or colony where a few families live together, the cost of the panels can be distributed or shared. And loan and electricity bill wont be the same. Loan is a one time transaction while electricity bill you have to pay monthly and everytime. You dont have to buy solar panels every month lol. So its a better option to spend on solar panels although it maybe a big amount, rather than paying high bills every month....
Solar Panel Looking For People Who Have Experience With The Industry?
Solar Panels: Asking Consumers, Manufacturer, And Anyone Involved With The Industry To Answer .?
Hello I Am Doing A Research And Created Some Interview Questions And Hopes Of Gaining Insight From Others Who Have Had The Experience Of Using Solar Panels. I Was Using Arizona As A Target Market But Just Wanted To Get Insight From Other Areas As Well. So Please Include What Region Or Area That You Are From. Thank You
I Am Trying To Get Insight From Anyone Involved In The Solar Panel Industries, I Have A Few Questions...
1. Since Solar Panels Are Expensive To Buy Up Front, Would You Consider Renting Them, Having A Slightly Lower Power Bill, And The Option To Buy Them Out A Few Years Later?&Quot;
2. Are You Concerned About The State Of Our Environment?
3. Why Is Solar Energy Of Importance?
4. Would You Consider Solar Power A Safe Alternative To Electrical Power?
5. If Offered Free Solar Panels, Would You Be More Likely To Consider Switching To Solar Power?
I'm in California.
1. I don't like the idea of renting or leasing, because someone must make money off the scheme, and it should ultimately cost more. Plus, I have the resources to buy a system outright.
2. I am somewhat concerned, yes. That would not be a strong factor in convincing me to put up solar panels, though. There are other things I consider more important for the environment. And on a state and national level, the environment is sadly not our biggest problem.
3. Just about everybody gets some, so it can be a decentralized energy system.
4. I consider properly installed solar to be safe. But I want it working in tandem with, not in place of, grid power. It's not an either/or alternative.
5. I already have panels, so do not really need more. If I was offered free panels, I would be suspicious of a catch.
What Type Of Solar Panel Do I Need To Charge My Laptop Daily?
I Am Considering Getting A Small 12V Solar Panel Setup To Try To Cut Down On My Electric Bill
I Live In A First Floor Flat.
I Have Got A Flat Part Just Outside Of My Window Where I Am Considering Putting A Solar Panel.
I Live In The North West Of The Uk, And The Window Is Facing South West.
I Want A Solar Panel That Can Charge Up My Laptop Up Each Day/Most Days With Preferably Getting Two Full Charges.
I Know That I Will Need To Connect Up The Solar Panel To A Battery As Well, But I Am Not Sure What Amp Hours To Get On The Battery.
I Have Considered A 40W 12V Solar Panel, But I Am Not Sure If This Would Be Able To Give Me The Power That I Need/Want.
Any Help Would Be Appreciated.
The very first thing that you want to decide is:
1. What do you want to power on ? DC or AC
2. how much power do you need or want in Watts?
3. how long do you need it to operate in a 24 hour day?
Only after you determine these factors, can a solar based system be designed properly.

How Many Solar Panels Do I Need?
I Am Currently Building A House, Iv Designed It To Be As Self Sustainable As Possible, I'M In The Process Of Installing Solar Panels But As I'M Ordering Online I Was Hoping Someone Here Could Tell Me How Many I Would Need To Completely Run A 5 Bedroom Home, Just Standard Household Appliances Such As Fridge And Freezers, Plasma Tvs Computers And Of Course Lighting, Various Things Like That, Also I'Ll Need Power Storage As Well, Some Type Of Large Rechargeable Battery, Any Help Would Be Great.
A "typical home" in America can use either electricity or gas to provide heat -- heat for the house, the hot water, the clothes dryer and the stove/oven. If you were to power a house with solar electricity, you would certainly use gas appliances because solar electricity is so expensive. This means that what you would be powering with solar electricity are things like the refrigerator, the lights, the computer, the TV, stereo equipment, motors in things like furnace fans and the washer, etc. Let's say that all of those things average out to 600 watts on average. Over the course of 24 hours, you need 600 watts * 24 hours = 14,400 watt-hours per day.
From our calculations and assumptions above, we know that a solar panel can generate 70 milliwatts per square inch * 5 hours = 350 milliwatt hours per day. Therefore you need about 41,000 square inches of solar panel for the house. That's a solar panel that measures about 285 square feet (about 26 square meters). That would cost around $16,000 right now. Then, because the sun only shines part of the time, you would need to purchase a battery bank, an inverter, etc., and that often doubles the cost of the installation.
If you want to have a small room air conditioner in your bedroom, double everything.
Can A Rental Agency Make You Pay For Solar Panel Lease?
So Recently The Previous Owner Of The House I'M Renting Has Said They Want The Lease Of The Solar Panels Be Put On Us The Renters, Even Tho We Already Signed A One Year Lease For The House, Can They Add This We'D Be Putting Our Names On The Solar Panels, And They Have Several More Years To Go But We Don'T Plan On Staying Here Longer Then Maybe A Year So Once Our Lease Is Up We Plan To Move, Doesn'T Make Sense, Legally Can They Do This, Is There A Way Out? Srry About All The Commas Btw Xd ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
The previous owner has no authority over your lease whatsoever. That ended when he sold the property. The new owner assumed the existing leases at closing and must honor them through the expiration.
The lessor of the solar system is not going to allow a tenant's name on the solar lease. That's between the owner of the solar system and the property owner. A tenant cannot contract with a 3rd party for work on the property without the consent of the property owner.
Your current landlord could raise your rent when your current lease expires but not before then.
