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 home owners to use the sun to power daily life: running your ac system, cleaning clothes, seeing TV, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, many homeowners find that the convenience, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Leading Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically reduce or perhaps remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a house owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can comprise a large part of your monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your energy costs and you'll still save a lot of loan.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the finest ways to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power expense savings, the average American property owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the past 10 years, domestic electricity rates have gone up by approximately three percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a business or house owner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise assists you much better projection and manage your costs.
#4 Boost your property worth
Several studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial element of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost variations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is an excellent way to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A normal residential photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are essential elements of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that opt to operate responsibly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective driver of customer purchasing decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing service results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no money down.
Lots of house owners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility 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 utility companies are notorious for their varying and undependable electrical energy prices. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can determine how much electrical energy will be generated, and most importantly, at what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired 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 Is It Important For A Country To Have A Many Energy Resources?
Why Is It Important For A Country To Have A Many Energy Resources?
Because, not all sources of energy are easily available to every region of the Earth.
Gasoline or diesel fuel requires costly transport with a road system capable of allowing transport.
Natural gas may require miles of high-pressure lines for distribution.
Solar energy may not be available every day of the year and the electricity it can currently provide may not be enough to power a large city.
A great deal of electricity production in the United States is derived from burning coal. If the coal reserves are soon depleted a national energy crisis may force the government to invest in other sources to fund our growing energy demands such as solar or biofuels.
Electrical grids may suffer from transient blackouts and brownouts, often due to weather damage. During certain extreme space weather events solar wind can interfere with transmissions.
Electrical grids also have a predefined carrying capacity or load that cannot safely be exceeded. When power requirements exceed what's available, failures are inevitable. To prevent problems, power is then rationed.
Industrialised countries such as Canada, the US, and Australia are among the highest per capita consumers of electricity in the world, which is possible thanks to a widespread electrical distribution network. The US grid is one of the most advanced, although infrastructure maintenance is becoming a problem.
This electrical grid has taken years to develop along with billions of dollars in long term investment and annual maintenance. A poor nation may be unable to afford such a costly network.
The need for a variety of sources a citizen of any country can access at any moment makes sense in order to conserve resources and cost.
With enough economic resources available to every country of the world we may be able to distribute our energy technology and provide several sources of energy so that we may be able to tap into the most readily available source at the least expensive coast at the moment we need it.
Hope this helps.
Why Do We Need Sustainable Sources Of Energy For The Future?
I'M Doing A Project But I Cant Find The Answer.
Can You Help ? Alot Of Detail Would Be Great.
We need sustainable sources of energy for the future because we are using up our natural resources i.e. oil faster than the planet can replenish them. That means we will eventually run out of oil. It does not mean that no more oil will ever be created, it just means that it will take a very, very long time to happen and we will be hundreds upon millions of years without it. We need another form of energy--nuclear power is the most viable option right now, but it is dangerous and slightly unstable. Wind, hydroelectric, and solar power will always be renewable but the means by which we harvest them don't allow us to "extract" enough power. We need sustainable sources of energy because without them, we will run out of all other means of energy, and won't be able to use electricity anymore. This means no artificial heat or cooler, efficient travel, modern day medical help, etc.
What Are Disadvantages Of Using It? Consequences?
Solar energy equipment is somewhat expensive, and its production is intermittent, but solar is a great supplemental source, and added to other things like hydro wind and such, will ease our consumption of fossil fuel. As oil prices go up solar becomes a better alternative.
How Does Japan's Cultural Attitudes Affect The Environment?
Any Kind Of Source Would Be Helpful!
Japan; the country with technology but no resource what so ever.
They've suffered this issue for a century, and hence they have came up with many energy conservation technologies (e.g. fuel efficient motor vehicles & latest solar pannels), which have made some contributions to slow down the global warming, etc. One of the reasons why the previous protocols to the international framework convention on climate change was signed in Kyoto.
I'm glad to be in Australia though. Even though it's going up in price every year, I can use as much electricity as I like and still doesn't cost me anything compared to in Japan - we just have to burn more coal & natural gas :P
How Is Ocean Energy Stored?
I Need It For My Hw.
Pls Reply Thanks.
Ocean energy is related to the movement of water. The energy is stored in waves of all forms and sizes, ocean currents warm and cold, tides rising and falling and tides moving up and down river courses. Additionally, remember that the ocean stores a tremendous amount of heat due to solar radiation.
