Sun related Facts about Solar Energy:

Sunlight travels to the earth in approximately 8 minutes from 93,000,000 miles away, at 186,282 miles per second.

The sun is also the main source of non-renewable fossil fuels (coal, gas and petroleum), which began life as plants or animals whose energy came from the sun millions of year ago.

Solar energy is responsible for weather patterns and ocean currents.

Clouds, pollution and wind can prevent the sun's rays from reaching the earth.

xFacts about Solar Energy usage:

Solar Energy is measured in kilowatt-hour. 1 kilowatt = 1000 watts.

1 kilowatt-hour (kWh) = the amount of electricity required to burn a 100 watt light bulb for 10 hours.

According to the US Department of Energy, an average American household used approximately 866-kilowatt hours per month in 1999 costing them $70.68.

About 30% of our total energy consumption is used to heat water.

Intro To Solar Hot Water


A solar hot water system is really quite simple. You're using the sun's energy to heat a solar collector full of solar fluid (or water, depending on which type of system you install), which then transfers that heat (or hot water) into your home's hot water tank.

Intro To Solar Electric (PV)


Solar panels silently convert light into electricity. They have no moving parts, require little maintenance and are designed to last for many years. Solar panels use the “photovoltaic effect”, discovered by Edmund Becquerel in 1839, to produce electricity directly from sunlight.

Green Living

Why go solar?

SHW systems are:

  • Reliable: they are designed to provide hot water using the clean and safe power of the sun first and other fuel sources as backup.
  • Simple: Everything you need is one phone call away: expert installation, premium equipment and expert engineering.
  • Renewable: The sun rises every day and provides the cleanest and greenest energy available. Remember - renewable energy has a fixed cost; the sun may rise but the price of its rays do not!
  • Affordable: Tax credits and state incentives reduce your cost, making SHW affordable everywhere.
  • Aesthetically Pleasing: These solutions look fabulous on every home. Businesses may also integrate onto any type of roof.

Solar electric benefits include:

  • The cleanest and greenest energy you can buy today
  • Simple operation, no moving parts
  • Shelter from escalating costs
  • Reduced personal carbon footprint
  • Increased value of your home or business
  • Federal tax credits
  • Cash incentives in some states
  • Independence from dirty energy sources


The electricity industry is changing. At least 50% of customers have the option to purchase renewable electricity directly from their power supplier, and all customers have the option of purchasing renewable energy certificates. Such power is sometimes referred to as "green power" or "clean power."

With technology advancements and cost reductions in componets, solar energy is now more than ever affordable for the customer to own their own PV system for their home. Thus dramatically reducing their energy costs, even selling the surplus energy back to the utility at attractive rates.

Because PV technologies use both direct and scattered sunlight to create electricity, the solar resource across the United States is ample for small solar electric systems. However, the amount of power generated by a solar system at a particular site depends on how much of the sun's energy reaches the solar panels. Alien Fuel will provide a complete site analysis of your home or business including the solar radiation efficiency level of the prospective location.
