Some years back, solar energy systems where a luxury which only the rich could afford. Now, the recent recession has brought about huge price reductions within the solar industry and government has opted to offer a great deal of assistance when people choose to introduce solar power for homes. So now, it's possible that almost anybody can afford to go solar.

We all know the benefits of having solar power for homes and we are all aware of the costs of buying them, but still not too many people are fully aware of the massive savings that can be made by using solar power for homes. A little bit of researching into the wide range of local government incentives will make you realize that solar power systems are affordable.

To know about the various systems available in the market and their prices, you can consult a Solar power victoria Company near you. Solar power and the photovoltaic solar panels are generally trouble-free. The most popular type of solar power installation involves mounting rooftop solar panels. They can be mounted without needing to obtain any permits from your local government. These photovoltaic panels won't harm your roof or any of your existing plumbing and heating infrastructure.

Once they have been installed and they are up and running, the only thing required to properly maintain your solar power system is an occasional clearing of the leaves away followed by a swift wash down with a soapy sponge. There are a number of good quality manuals online to assist you in this, so even without any extensive experience, you should still be able to easily maintain your solar panels easily.

As concerns about climate and energy supply issues are on the forefront of international politics, support for expansion of the solar energy business continue to be strong.Obviously, power bills are a pain. Nobody really likes them, but unless one is willing to live without electricity, there's little one can do about them. There are an increasing number of builders putting up "net zero" properties which generate their own energy.

As the prices continue to drop, more people are going to install solar power panels at their homes.

Solar energy is the infinitely available and easily accessible source of energy that anyone can utilize. Technology development and man's unstoppable desires have made solar energy available for many residential as well as commercial uses. Government subsidies have lessened the burden that a solar power system owner could have and have increased the possibility to get back the return on investment. A solar system in your home means a healthy, sustainable and environment preserving life. Go green!

Solar power is the last hope for future energy as the power sources are limited and population is increasing rapidly. At this moment solar power energy control is the hope and there are many chances to get the big sources of energy.

Solar power systems are so popular that 99% of the manufacturers in the US have gone out of business.

It is unbelievably expensive if you know anything about it. It has a 5 year life span until it reaches 80% of it's rated output. The solar show I attended a couple of years ago offered these panels for about the Brave New World price of about $20,000 apiece. That came down to the panel, installation and maintenance on JUST the panels and not the storage media cost more than the savings in electricity costs. They typically only generate for 4 hours a day in perfect weather and the slightest clouds shut their conversion down almost entirely. You CAN sell your excess energy back to the power company but the laws passed last year reduced the cost they need to pay you to the same price they pay to ANY of their wholesalers and not the retail prices they ask you to pay. AS IT SHOULD BE.

In order to use the low voltage to high voltage AC you have to have an expensive inverter. You CAN buy batteries to store the energy in for night use but the batteries and the charger/converter have the same problem as the panels - they wear out before they even pay for themselves.

Why are they do popular? They aren't.

There you go again, just making stuff up.

Just to take one of your points: solar panels do not have a 5 year life span until they reach 80% of their rated output. It's at least 20 years, and can be substantially longer for newer panels in moderate climates.

What Is the Lifespan of a Solar Panel?

Almost all the rest of what you've written is nonsense too.

What is it with you? Do you get some sort of kick out of lying to people? Like to sound smart be can't be bothered to do actual research?

And yet no company has been in business long enough to pay off any of their warranties. And as an engineer going to the solar cell trade show and talking to their engineers they say that you could expect 5 years to 80% and 10 years to 50%. But then that's just talk isn't if because you can click a site that has NEVER been exercised and know everything.

Latest news for a good laugh. A town in Marin California where the rich and powerful live required all new construction to include solar installations.

After three years - two of them with perfect solar weather all year round because of the drought - several of the home buyers spoke up. Their installations had cost them $25,000 and not one of them had shown one single cent of savings from their installations.

Today Solar Power is so popular that every single American manufacturer has gone out of business. There are still installation companies but they use Chinese poly-crystal cells that aren't even as efficient as the American company's were.

But you can buy the Chinese company rejects on Ebay and install them yourself with no warranties or guarantees of any sort. But they're cheap.

My wife works as a project manager in the construction industry.

She recently had to put solar power onto public housing.

After 1 year the residents complained that the amount of solar power they got, which had been promised to make their electricity bills almost nill, was not worth the effort going to read the meter as it was in pence a year.
