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 use the sun to power daily life: running your a/c unit, washing clothing, seeing TV, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are significant, lots of residents discover that the benefit, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Leading Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably decrease or even remove your electrical expenses
Whether you're a property owner, business, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can comprise a big part of your month-to-month costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your utility bills and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy costs savings, the average American house owner settles their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, property electricity rates have actually increased by approximately 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a business or house owner with fluctuating cash flow, going solar likewise helps you better forecast and handle your costs.
#4 Increase your house worth
Several research studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher property worths and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry added jobs 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 expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent method to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A common domestic photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to 4 heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are very important parts of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding services that decide to run properly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are an effective driver of consumer purchasing choices, producing goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Lots of property owners opt to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The energy companies are infamous for their varying and unreliable electricity rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can determine just how much electricity will be created, and most notably, at what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).
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.
- Low, fixed payments each month

Frequently Asked Questions
How Easy Or Difficult Is It To Obtain Solar Energy?
I Am Doing A Report On Solar Energy And Need A Little Help.
If You Could Leave Me The Website You Got The Answer From That Would Be Great!! Thanks For Your Help!! :O()
The largest solar collector is our plants.The sun's energy is stored in the plants leaves and seed.
Why Are We Dragging Our Heals With Alternative Energy Solutions?
According To A Study By David Mills, Chief Scientific Officer Of Ausra, A 92 Square Mile Patch Of Southwestern Desert Could Power The Entire Country Via Solar Power. The Solar Converts Energy To Steam Which Is Used To Power The Turbines To Make Electricity. It Would, However, Require A Complete 'Revamping' Of Our Current Electrical Infrastructure From An Ac Grid To A High Voltage Dc Grid.
Instead Of Bailing Out Failed Businesses Like Aig, We Could Have Changed Our Whole System And Cut Our Oil Dependency In Half.
Most Of Us Are Aware That Gm Produced The Ev1, A Highly Efficient And Highly Functional Electric Vehicle That Regularly Got 100-140 Miles Before Recharging. The Top Speed Was Electronically Regulated To Reach 80Mph, Without The Regulator Electric Cars Have Been Clocked At Over 180Mph. The Ev1 Was Mysteriously Recalled And All Models Crushed For Political Reasons.
The Technology Not Only Exists, But Has Existed For Decades. So What Are We Waiting For? Who Or What Is Holding Us Back, And What, If Anything, Can Be Done About It??
All of your ideas make great sense but the country is still moving in another direction. The process for the first nuclear power plant in 30 years has been started. Oil companies are promoting hydrogen vehicles so that they can supply hydrogen and we will be duped into thinking we have a clean fuel. Some electric car companies have received funds, but only those who were politically connected and the review process was done by a very small number of civil servants (no doubt hired from the petrochemical industry) And the Supreme court recently handed down a ruling that says corporations can now fund political candidates in an unlimited amount.
Soon we may begin to see the days of the corporate candidate where corporate logo's may be a part of the political campaign and the politicians will no longer be known as the Senator from Arizona or Texas but the Dow chemical, Chevron, or Monsanto candidate. It may be the last step in removing that fiction that political "representatives" represent people instead of corporations.

What Is The Average Cost For Home Solar Panels?
Despite what many people say, you don't need batteries for a solar system if you are going to also be connected to the electric company (grid). You just need the panels and an inverter (and mounting hardware and safety equipment like breakers and fuses).
Most people don't generate all of the electricity they use. They offset some of their use with solar and buy the rest from the grid. You can get a very small grid-tied solar system for as little as $3000. However, it won't generate much electricity at all. I'd say an average size system is around $10k - $20k. Here are some packages that show all of the components needed. http://www.altestore.com/store/Kits-and-...
If you want to see how much you need, look at your electric bill and see how many kwh you buy each month. Put that number into a calculator like this one, and see how big of a system you need. http://www.altestore.com/store/calculato... Installed cost is about $8 per watt of solar panel.
How Can Solar Energy Be Used During Darker Parts Of The Year?
Trying To Figure Out The 2 Most Renewable Sources.. Solar Puts Up A Pretty Good Fight But It Can'T Hold Energy For Like 4 Months During Winter...? So What Can Be Done About That If Anything.
Solar is pretty useless unless your in Arizona or California.
Until we can find an economical efficient way of storing electricity, we should forget wind and solar.
They are expensive, but that's not the problem they are unreliable and uncontrollable.
Any power station engineer knows you have to exactly balance load to demand, controlling frequency in very a narrow range, if it goes outside that, generator trips occur follow by a blackout.
South Australia just suffered a statewide blackout, they are trying to blame the weather, but if they had had more coal fired stations running and less wind generators they would have survived it.
I Would Like To Power Some Home Appliances Such As Computer And Tv How Would I Select Solar Panels For This?
I Have Been Studying The Possibility Of Using Solar Electricity For Home Use. I Have No Idea Of How It Works, Thanks.
If I Have To Go Into Solar Business What Do I Need To Do In Order To Convince The Prospective Buyers. There Is So Much Lack Of Awareness.
Don't go into a business you know NOTHING about!
Solar power is DC so most home apliances won't work. The panels are used to charge a battery bank and the batteries provide the power. it can be done but effectively you would need to rewire your house to work like a camper van or a yacht! Contact me directly if you are
