About Solar Energy
Solar power is energy from the sun that is transformed into thermal or electrical energy.
Solar power makes it possible for home owners to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, cleaning clothes, viewing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, lots of homeowners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically decrease and even eliminate your electrical bills
Whether you're a property owner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can make up a large part of your monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your utility costs and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Make an excellent return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity bill cost savings, the typical American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical power costs have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and secure against unpredictable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a company or property owner with ever-changing capital, going solar also assists you better forecast and handle your expenses.
#4 Boost your home or business value
Several studies have actually discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater home worths and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key component of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price changes in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a fantastic 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 normal property solar panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are necessary components of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that decide to run responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of customer acquiring choices, developing goodwill and improving business outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Many homeowners opt to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The energy companies are notorious for their changing and undependable electricity prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can determine how much electricity will be created, and most importantly, at what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).
What are the various payment options?
- 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

Frequently Asked Questions
Will A Solar Panel Ever Pay For It Self In Electrical Savings, At Market Prices? ?
I Bought A Solar Panel, It Cost About 400 Dollars , When The Sun Is Shining It Makes About, 50 Watts , Then I Have To Buy The Inverter And The Batteries , At Market Prices, Will It Ever Pay For Itself? They Say It Will Last About 10 Years. And How About A Windmill ?
You need in average 30 years to recover the investment of a solar energy system, this makes it economical unfeasible in most cases.The solar system will not probably last that either.
The only case where solar energy is economical feasible is where you do not have access to the grid, e.g. remote location.
In some countries where government wants to promote a green politics, the hardware is provided a low cost (green benefit), this makes it economical feasible for the final user.
Another way to make it economical feasible is to start from scratch thinking solar e.g. before building your house. If you buy and build everything; appliances, walls, heat systems and so on, thinking in how to do the best use of solar energy, thus you can get a nearly economical feasible system.
Can I Connect My Pool Pump To A Solar Panel?
What Size Would The Panel Be/ I Live In The Caribbean So Plenty Of Sun!
I Only Have One Heater
I don't need to tell you that electricity is extremely expensive in the Caribbean, and the sun is plentiful, so solar may be a cost effective solution for you. I have several customers in the islands who have solar pool pumping and solar pool heating.
You have a couple of options. If you already have a pump, you could find out how many watt hours (wh) it uses a day. To do that, figure out how many watts the pump uses, and how many hours a day it is on. Watts times hours equals watt hours, and that is how the electric companies charge us, how many wh, or kwh (thousand watt hours) a month. (1 horsepower is equal to about 750W, running for 6 hours would be 3900 wh, or 3.9kwh). Once you know how much power your pump uses, you can install enough solar panels and an inverter to generate that amount of power, thus offsetting what it uses.
Another option is to replace your existing pump with a more efficient solar powered pool pump. It would only run when the sun is shining, but that's pretty much when your existing pump runs too. Depending on the size of your pool, the whole package with pump and solar panels is about $5000. Do the math to see how much you are paying for electricity now, and see if it is worth it. http://www.altestore.com/store/Solar-Poo...
Your question also said you are using a heater. You can reduce or eliminate that need with solar pool heating. The pump pumps the water from the pool through the collectors, generally installed on your roof, and then back into the pool. The sun heats the water as it is traveling along your roof, just like leaving a hose out in the sun. You size the system based on the square feet of pool area. http://www.altestore.com/store/Solar-Poo...
Why Are Things Like Solar Panels And Geothermal Energy Sources So Expensive?
And Is There Anything That Can Be Done To Bring The Cost Down?
Solar will be cheaper when new technology replaces older, more expensive ones. Within 5 years, there will be no comparison, and fossil fuel will be costlier than solar.
How Many 80W Can Charge 4And2 Batteries?
How Many 80W Solar Panel Can Charge 2 And 4 Batteries In 8 Hours
It depends on the size of the batteries. 80 watts is a lot of power for a solar cell. First, make sure it's in fact an 80 watt panel. At 12 volts, 80 watts means over 6 amps or 6000 mA. This will charge about 6 AA cells in 1 hour if connected to the correct charging circuit or 48 AA cells in 8 hours. If you're talking about a car batteries, you would charge 1 car battery to a usable point in 8 hours.
Why Do People Say Solar Panels Are Too Expensive When In Ca They Lease/Install At Current Electric Bill Rate?
If Your Electric Bill Is $200. You Can Lease A Solar Pv System In Ca, And Pay $200. For 20 Years. No Raising Of Rates!!! No C02 Or Pollution To Offset. The Panels Are Warranted For 25 Years. Yet, So Many Here Buy Into The Ignorant Idea, Solar Is Not Viable, It'S Too Far Off, Why Is That? Glen Beck Said So? Check Rates In Your Area. 21 States Have Incentives. If Oil And Defense Get Corporate Welfare Solar Incentives Are Fair. The Main Components Are Silicon (Same As Computer Chips), Metal And Glass. It'S A No Brainer. The Ones Trying You To Convince You It'S Not Realistic Are Petroleum Companies, Ever Wonder Why?
Database Of State Incentives For Renewable Energy
That is all relatively new many people are not aware of the incentives.
