Solar Energy and its associated technologies are quickly becoming one of the most exciting of the Green, Eco-Friendly power options available. The Sun’s rays will produce enough power each year to provide more than enough energy for all of human consumption, and the best Part is: Mother nature gives oﬀ this Energy for free. This makes harnessing the power of the Sun an increasingly important part of modern-day Energy strategies.
Why Solar Power?
Solar panels generate free power from the sun by converting sunlight to electricity with no moving parts, zero emissions, and no maintenance. It can be used by anyone to supply all their electrical needs, provide back-up power, or even just as a supplement to the normal electrical grid connection to a utility company. It is ideal for remote locations where power is unavailable or too expensive to hook-up to. Solar Power System has many benefits and some of them are;
- Drastically reduce or even eliminate your electric bills
- Protect against rising energy costs
- Peace of mind
Whether you’re a homeowner, business, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you’ll generate 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 utility bills and you’ll still save a lot of money.
One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. By investing in a solar energy system, you can fix your electricity rate and protect against unpredictable increases in electricity costs. If you’re a business or homeowner with fluctuating cash flow, going solar also helps you better forecast and manage your expenses.
With guaranteed performance and no-cost maintenance, your biggest worry will be whether the sun rises tomorrow! With solar, you know exactly what your cost is, unlike the utility company who can raise your rates at a moment’s notice. Here’s to no more crazy electric bills.
- Solar Panel
- Charge Controller
- Power Inverter
- Solar Battery
The first component needed is one or more Solar Panels. They supply the electricity and charge the batteries. A very small system could get away with a couple 100 watt panels but figure at least 4 to 8 for a small to medium system.
A Charge Controller is needed to prevent overcharging of the batteries. Proper charging will prevent damage and increase the life and performance of the batteries.
The Power Inverter is the heart of the system. It makes 240 volts AC from the 12 volts DC stored in the batteries. It can also charge the batteries if connected to a generator or the AC line.
Last are the storage Batteries. They store the electrical power in the form of a chemical reaction. Without storage you would only have power when the sun was shining or the generator was running.
Cost Of Solar
Since every customer’s needs are unique, the exact solar panel system cost will depend on system size, ease of installation, and state rebates or incentives. Each installation is custom built depending on the unique power needs of each residence.
