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 house owners to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, cleaning clothing, viewing TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, many home owners discover that the convenience, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically reduce and even eliminate your electric costs
Whether you're a house owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can comprise a big portion of your regular monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your energy bills and you'll still save a lot of money.
#2 Make a great return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy bill savings, the typical American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, residential electrical power costs have increased by an average of 3 percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure versus unforeseeable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're an organisation or homeowner with rising and falling cash flow, going solar likewise assists you better projection and manage your costs.
#4 Increase your home worth
Numerous research studies have actually discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, need for homes equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial element of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost fluctuations in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a great method to minimize 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 typical domestic photovoltaic panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are very important parts of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that pick to operate responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of consumer getting decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Lots of property owners decide to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility business are notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and basic math, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical power will be produced, and most importantly, at exactly what price, for at least the next 20 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
- System insurance for 20 years, including maintenance
- Flexible end-of-term options, including system upgrade, lease extension, and free panel removal
Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)
- We own the solar panel system
- $0 down for installation
- Customers only pay for the solar energy that they use
- Customer pays for the system upfront and owns the system
- System monitoring and maintenance for 20 years
- Receive 30% federal tax credit
- See a return on investment within 7-10 years
What happens when the contract for my lease is finished?
We provide our customers with a few different options for when their lease contract is up. Customers can upgrade their equipment to the newest solar technology available, extend the agreement, or have the panels removed at no cost.
What is the warranty?
The Lease and PPA include a 20-year warranty during the lifetime of the system. This warranty exceeds that of most other solar installers’ warranties.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why Do Some People Seem To Be Afraid Of Alternative Fuels?
I Like Alternative Fuels, But I'M Not Against Fossil Fuels. I Think Both Alternative Fules And Fossil Fuels Have A Place In The Worlds Future. But I Keep Hearing People Putting Down Alterntive Fuels And Calling People Who Like Alternatives Fuels Names Like 'Greenies', 'Environmental Wackos', 'Liberals'. It Seems People Are Afraid Of Alternative Fuels, Or Have Been Listening To Rush Limbaugh.
Alternative fuels have so far contributed only a small portion of energy use, so what people are afraid of is the lower standard of living that will result by fossil fuels being phased out (because alternative fuels are likely to make up only part not all of the difference). That of course, is not a valid reason for repeating idiotic anti-science crap about "greenies," 'liberals,", etc., but fossil fuel companies and their bought politicians do rely on brainwashed nitwits talking that way and actually believing such BS.
The reality is that fossil fuels are a finite non-renewable resource, so our exponentially growing use of them makes it inevitable that they WILL be phased down sooner or later, no matter WHAT politics does or how ignorant some people are of it and of science and of economics, or how much time they spend on YA parading their arrogant ignorance. Oil prices, like global temperatures, will fluctuate up and down, but barring some dramatic change in the laws of physics, or the long term history of the solar system, the long term trend is upwards. No amount of paraded anti-science ignorance will change that.
The choices come down to
(a) faster shifts towards alternative fuels, faster shifts towards greater energy efficiency, and less future pressure on living standards versus
(b) slower shifts towards alternative fuels, slower shifts towards greater energy efficiency, and more future pressure on living standards.
(a) is better for humanity
(b) is better for the fossil fuel industry
Ignorant dupes are scared into repeating stupid lies that promote (b)
What Are Some Down Sides To Alternative Energy Sources?
I Need Vague And Specific Downsides To Each Source
Alt Sources- Solar, Nuclear, Wind, Biomass, Hydro, Geothermal
Solar - Are NOT environmentally friendly in production of the units themselves. Currently too expensive.
Nuclear - Cost versus lifetime, toxic byproducts that we don't currently have means to detoxify and/or store safely.
Wind - Cost, and usable only in certain areas.
Biomass - Just a different fuel source for "standard" power plants. ALSO, economically NOT feasible at this time, and best CURRENT sources are from food plants.
Hydro - Usable only where there is sufficient water flow. Use affects MANY other environmental concerns such as fish, flooding of areas due to dams, etc.
Geothermal - Not economically practical in many areas. ALSO the maintenance problems of below ground installations.
Hope that helps.
Hot Topics For Master In Electrical Engineerings?
Hi, What Are The Hot Topics Now For Master Thesis In Electrical Engineering In Both Fields Of 1.Power & 2.Automation? Beside Wind, Solar Energy & Smart Grid
You say besides wind, solar and smart grid. Good. Glad to see someone is interested in alternate topics.
I'm fairly interested in light as having magnetic as U of M announced...however..how they thought that was relevant to new solar was beyond me..and i thought we always thought of light as being a wave..which isn't that the definition of magnetic to begin with.
I have never really understood why there wasn't an immediate air drop of portable gen-sets to run the cooling systems out there in Japan. I mean we can immediately drop a 40 foot container with a complete diesel gen set more than capable to have kept cooling on instantly...and the military has the ability to establish a fuel dump using flexible containers in a matter of hours.
One area in the power plant I also never could get figured out was the equation that relate to fires and explosions in the coal pulverizers versus the cost to install monitoring equipment and grease-less bearings. Not too many want to talk about that area of the plant, however, an explosion or two in the pulverizer can shut down a whole unit or at least decrease a output. Typically, there will be several pulverizers on a good size unit.
Self-ignition of the fuel pile is a nasty issue and best left to the ChemE type and probably a topic out of your scope.
I probably know too much regarding an issue we don't discuss regarding older boiler water level control systems. The how why and what of that topic is too dicey for met to post on this site. Besides I guess I'm still beholden to keep quite on that one. Fortunately, we didn't apply any of them to the early nukes.
I bet we still have some GE 7000 series systems still operating and the issues of changing them out was always a debate. That by the way was the system operating 3-Mile Island.
One open question I guess I would have is SIL-4 and application to nukes and nuke feedwater. Most SIL-4 I worked with was on plants a tad bit more dangerous than nukes. The first microprocessor feedwater controller I installed on the Dresden nuclear plant wasn't SIL-4. I'm curious about their acceptance now.
I think that pool of molten copper when FPL opened up their set always is a fun topic to discuss and I have yet to see a decent report on that issue and how English Electric's new set addressed the issue. Frankly I think we don't talk much about the English Electric set very much since GE is such a big player.
I guess a lot of people have talked about the merits and politics of an earth return on long transmission lines. However, I think it is a valid subject to reopen in light of the new Borneo Hydro plant. I think they are still pondering a line to West Malaysia, and an earth return via the sea has never been done to my knowledge. This is a topic that has bearing on Hawaii since Hawaii Island could power the entire state with geothermal. In Hawaii's case earth return might be a dicey subject owing to the whales. An earth return would lower the project cost and someone needs to think of the children (just kidding couldn't resist the movie reference)
I really would like someone to do a decent study on integration of a lime kiln and coal fired plant into one integrated unit. Perhaps you can do a joint thesis with a ChemE?
This one is a bit off track but it has always bugged me to see thousands of bright lights burning 24/7 at the plants I worked on. A way to turn lights off and conserve energy from the guys that use it like there was no tomorrow?
When Cheap, Stored And Abundant Solar Thermal Energy............?
No Chance For Dangerous Nuclearists... !!
A Thermal Pile Can Be Cheaply Realized By Using The Passage Of Solid And Liquid Phases.
1 M3 Of Nacl(Very Cheap) Can Be Melted By Using About 300 Kwh Of Thermal Energy !!!.................
1 M3 Of Silicium Needs More Than 1000 Kwh Of Thermal Energy For Melting!......
Big Values !!!
Cheap And Abundant Solar Energy.
I Can Realize A Big Hole In The Ground, Panel It With Aluminium Foil So That I Can Reflect Solar Beams Where I Need Them.
I Can Close This Big Hole With Glass...For Protecting It Against Dust, Rain Etc...
Less Than 5°000 Kmq Of Arizona'S Surface Can Be Able To Produce The Double Of The Actual Usa Nuclear Energy...
Aluminum melts at 660 C while NaCl (common table salt) melts at 801 C, so you cannot panel your big hole with aluminum foil.
And you can't reflect light into a hole in the ground unless the mirrors are all on towers that can see down into the hole, which is why such plants are designed with the mirrors on the ground to reflect light onto the top of a tower.
Then you need a boiler and steam engine to turn the heat into electricity.
It is not simple or cheap to build.
Photoelectric solar panels that make electricity directly from sunlight are much simpler, and there are a lot of big companies out there spending millions of dollars building new solar cell factories and reducing the cost of solar cell manufacturing. I expect that within 20 years solar panels will be as common as satellite dishes on home roofs.
How Do You Change Solar Energy To Electricity?
Well large scale(power plants) is solar thermal which basically uses the heat of the sun to super heat air, boil water and turn a turbine. Small scale like a calculator or satelite uses a photovoltaic cell to convert the energy. It works By using basically a metal plate keyed to a certain frequency to trap and use electromagnetic radiation(light) and emit electrons which are the base of the power. its called the photoelctric effect if you wanted to look it up for a little more depth.
