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 ac system, cleaning clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, lots of home owners find that the benefit, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly decrease or even eliminate your electrical costs
Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can comprise a large portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.
#2 Make a terrific return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity bill savings, the average American property owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the past ten years, property electricity prices have actually increased by approximately three percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're a company or property owner with changing cash circulation, going solar also assists you much better forecast and manage your costs.
#4 Increase your home worth
Several research studies have actually discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater property values and offer more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, need for residential or commercial properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market included tasks at a rate nearly 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. Because solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect 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 considerably decrease that number. A typical domestic solar 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 responsibility are very important components of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding services that choose to operate responsibly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of consumer acquiring decisions, creating goodwill and improving service results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Numerous house owners opt to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility business are well-known for their changing and undependable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can compute what does it cost? electrical power will be created, and most importantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired 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.

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
Sunrun Solar Tax Benefits?
When You Get Sunrun To Install Solar Panels On Your House With Their No Down 18/20 Year Power Agreement, Does The Homeowner Get Any Federal Tax Credit? Or Does Sunrun Gets All The Rebates And Tax Credit?
You can bet that Sunrun will still make a return on the investment and since the only way for solar to give a viable return is through the federal subsidies, somehow the subsidies will sink to their bottom line.
Howmany Solar Panels Would I Need To Run My House?
A few months ago I thought about doing the same thing. Forget it, too costly. Cheapest I could find was about $1600.00 to burn a 200 watt light bulb. Would take several of these just for lighting. If it was cost effective, everyone would be doing it. Less than 1% of electricity is produced in the US by solar electric panels. Solar heat is different, cheap ways to do this.
Analogy, How Is A Cell Like A Fort?
I Read A Lot I'M Not Very Good A Science. Thanks For The Help.:) Your The Best!
Endoplasmic Reticulum(Smooth And Rough)
The most obvious comparison between a cell and a fort is a barrier surrounding the whole structure. Both closely control what goes in and out of the structure. Beside that they are completely self reliant. In short:
Cell Membrane: Fort Wall
Nucleus: Control Center
Golgi apparatus (we should leave out) they secrete chemicals out of the cell if that is the cells purpose
ribosomes: Central Mainframe Computer
Mitochondria: Energy Plants
Vacuoles: Waste Management/ Police
Chloroplasts(plants only) Solar Panels for energy collection
Cell Wall: Fort wall for plants
Endoplasmic Reticulum: Mail Service
Urgent Solar Panel Help Needed Asap!!! 20 Volts, 0.7 Amps!?
It'S Been 9 Days Since This Issue Began, And Just Now Did I Realize The Issue Was My Solar Panel Itself. It Gives 17-22 Volts, But Only 0.7 Amps In Full Sunlight An Hour Before Sunset. I Can'T Check It Any Sooner Than That Because I Am Still In School. I Need Help Immediately! I Go On Winter Vacation In 4 Days And I Want This Fixed Asap!
In The Above Photo It Reads 0.34 Because The Sun Was Setting Once I Found Out How To Open This Black Box On The Back Of The Panel. It Is Connected To Little Holes That Were There In The Metal Of The Panel.
The Best Answer Will Receive 5 Stars If It Fixes The Issue. I'Ve Made Contact With The Manufacturer (Windy Nation Inc.) Just Moments Ago And Still Am Awaiting A Response. Maybe Some Advice From Others Will Help To?
Without the model number and specs of your panel, it's hard to give a detailed answer.
If this is a new setup, possibly this is normal operation. It is near sunset, after all, and the sun is coming in at a low angle. As an example, it's 8 am where I live right now, maybe half an hour after sunrise, and I just read 96 watts coming from our array. At this time of year, we see about 2100 watts at noon.
So look for indications that what you see is not normal. If there is more than one panel in the system, compare your suspect panel with another, for short circuit current, and open circuit voltage. If the system was working at a certain performance level, and suddenly failed, that's also a sign that something went wrong.
Why Doesn'T California Use Solar Energy To Solve Its Power Crises?
Seriously, There Is Not A Single Cloud In The Sky In Sunny Old California, How Could Someone Not Think Of Using Solar There?
Give the politicans some slack huh.
Solar energy is pretty pathetic as an energy source by itself, try it yourself. Get a torch run on solar power with no batteries and see how much light and power you can get out of it. Sure it works, but compared to batteries... its weak, really weak.
Now while solar energy is all good and nice, it is no where near the point where it could save a city from an energy crisis, no where near enough. I wouldn't leave a huge thriving city in the hands of solar power, that would be almost certain chaos.
Solar power won't have its own feet without subsidies for many many years, that science learning period and experimentation will take a while and in the mean time your area needs power. One day without power would mean complete chaos.
Politicians have brains, and if the solution were soo easy they'd do so, but its not all back and white. Drilling in Alaska is the best option to save the energy crisis, support would be good instead of ignorant, naive attacks.
