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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, cleaning clothes, viewing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are substantial, many residents discover that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically decrease or even eliminate your electric costs
Whether you're a homeowner, business, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can comprise a large part of your regular monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle.

#2 Earn a fantastic return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy expense cost savings, the typical American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, domestic electricity rates have actually gone up by approximately three percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and protect against unpredictable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're a business or homeowner with rising and falling cash flow, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and manage your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home value
Numerous research studies have found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher home worths and sell more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential component of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost changes in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.

Solar is a fantastic way to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number.

Many property owners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
Since 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 changing and undependable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can compute what does it cost? electrical energy will be generated, and most notably, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 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
Solar Panels Save Money Right?
So Why Dont' More Pople Use Them? If They Save You Money In The Long Run, Its Like An Investment, Why Wouldn'T You Spend A Little Now To Save In The Future? Or Is There Some Kind Of Catch With Using These Things That I'M Missing?
"The dollar-per-watt ratio is the best way to compare the prices of solar cells. How does this ratio work? If we assume that a solar array costs $500 and generates 100 Watts, the dollar-per-watt ratio is $5.00 per watt. The current best deals on solar cells is around $4.30 per watt.", here's more info if interested
With My Solar Panels During Winter?
How Do I Keep Ice From Building Up On The Surface, And Snow From Accumulating On Them?
Do not put salt on your solar panels. I would not worry with the clear ice because the panels will heat up and melt it same with snow as long as some part of the panel can get sun light. Mine have been covered many times with snow and I just lightly sweep them off just enough to get some of the black cells to show and in a couple of hours they will be clear on their own.
The colder the solar panels are the better they work. And if you live in a snowy area you might want to do a ground mount so you can go sweep without getting on a roof.
Can A Solar Panel Run Without An Inverter? If So, How Effecient Will It Be And For How Long It Might Run?
Public Electric Is Almost Nonexistent In My Country And With Plenty Of Subshine; Sometimes 10 Hours Or More Per Day, I Am Becoming Freak-Up About Solar Panel. Most People Here Use Generators That Are Very Unstable Subsequently Leading To Destruction Of Property.
Yes. The inverter is used convert DC to AC power. You can connect the solar panel to batteries to store power, but to use the power it will be DC only. So it can power on equipment that uses DC. If you want to power things that normally use AC, then you will need to convert to AC, which requires an inverter.
Storing Solar Energy?
If I Install A 250Wp Solar Panel On My House And I Get 10 Hours Of Peak Sunshine (In Theory), How Would I Store This 2.5Kwh? What Type Of Battery Could I Buy So That I Could Run Lights, Fridge, Tv From The Battery. What Sort Of Amps Or Specs Should I Consider?
I Know I Need An Inverter For Ac/Dc And Other Stuff, But I Just Need To Know About The Battery.
I know you said "in theory," but most of the question is on practical matters, so I'll answer that way.
A 250 watt peak panel is more likely to deliver about 220 watts, given the way the rating system works for panels. Also, peak sunshine is not the number of hours that the sun is out. Even in the summer in California where I live, when the days are 16 hours long, we only get 6 hours peak sun.
Also count on losing 25% of the energy, just in the inefficiencies of charging and discharging a battery.
Lead-acid batteries are the typical choice for cost reasons. This type of battery will be damaged if allowed to discharge too far, so you probably would not connect a fridge to such a small system, only things that are non-critical, and you could turn off at any time. Either that, or you would have a much larger system.
