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 everyday life: running your air conditioning system, cleaning clothing, enjoying 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 ecological benefits of solar power are significant, lots of residents discover that the convenience, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Leading Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically minimize and even eliminate your electrical expenses
Whether you're a house owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a big part of your monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your energy bills and you'll still save a great deal of money.
#2 Earn a fantastic return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power bill savings, the average American property owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical power costs have actually increased by approximately three percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and protect versus unpredictable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a service or homeowner with rising and falling cash flow, going solar also helps you much better forecast and manage your expenditures.
#4 Increase your property worth
Multiple research studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher property worths and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations 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 solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local 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 country. This growth is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is an excellent way to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A normal property photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are essential components of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that decide to operate properly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of customer getting decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Lots of house owners decide to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The energy business are well-known for their varying and undependable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can calculate how much electricity will be generated, and most importantly, at exactly what price, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).
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

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
What Size Solar Panel Would I Need To Run A Rotating Fan?
I Want To Put A Fan Outside For My Dogs This Summer And Have It Running During The Day. What Kind Of Solar Panel Should I Get And Are Those Carried In Stores Like Home Depot And Lowe'S?
you'll have to experiment. biggest mistake people make is having a panel that simply doesn't put out enough power to overcome the fan's friction. second-biggest mistake: thinking a 12v DC panel can drive a standard bedroom fan intended to run off 110v 60 Hz AC. no can do.
you must match the fan to the panel output, or use an inverter or similar device.
Solar Energy Help!!!?
Okay, For School, I Have To Find A Way Of Creating Energy Other Using Crude Oil So I Chose Solar Energy. My Questions Are:
What Is Solar Energy?
Why Should We Use It?
Solar energy converts our inexhaustible supply of sunlight into energy.
This is accomplished primarily through the use of either photovoltaics or solar reflection technologies. We should use it because it's a "green" energy source. It's essentially non-polluting, its "fuel" is 100% free, and until the Sun goes out, it will always be there.
(1) Solar photovoltaics (i.e. solar cells). These are thin pieces of carefully designed silicon with a proper sequence of wire embedded in them, pressed between layers of opaque black plastic on the "back" side and transparent plastic on the "front" side A photon (a "piece" of light) comes in, and knocks an electron out of the silicon wafer. This electron shoots its way around a loop at near the speed of light, and ends up right back where it started. This creates an itty-bitty electrical current through electromagnetic induction. Now, you take that one electron and multiply it by billions of electrons -- you end up with a significant amount of energy.
(2) Solar reflection. A series of mirrors (flat, parabolic, etc.) controlled by a computer focus sunlight on a tower that contains a fluid medium and turbine. Now, we're not talking about water. We're talking about something like... sodium metal. But focusing enough energy on on this sodium metal turns it into liquid sodium, which moves with massive thermal and kinetic energy. This drives turbines through a series of heat exchangers (usually) that drive common induction turbines.
(3) I'll add this one, it isn't common, but it's real. They use long lines of continuous mirrors that have been bent to focus light on a pipe containing a fluid (generally water in this case). Heating the fluid causes it to expand, which causes it to move within the design. This fluid uses direct flow to spin turbine blades and create energy as with solar reflection induction turbines.
(4) Also... a 2-stroke Sterling generator is an old technology that powers what is essentially a solar-powered internal combustion engine. They're very inefficient, you'll never be driving around using one.
Every single energy source you'll ever, with the sole exception of "solar cells" uses a straight-up induction turbine like we've been using for over a century at this point. More advanced, but the exact same technology. Wind, solar reflection, wave, current, tidal, geothermal, hydroelectric, *nuclear*.... all use the same turbine technology. Only photovoltaics are different.
What Makes Solar Energy Green? Why Is It Good?
It produces no waste, no carbon dioxide, it's infinite (we aren't going to 'use up' the sun), and the source (the sun) is free.
Solar Energy - Science Help!?
Ok, So I Am Doing A Science Project On Solar Power And I Have Looked Everywhere For Answers To My Questions, But I Can'T Find Them In A Way I Understand! Here Are The Questions -
What Is Solar Power?
How Does It Produce Energy?
What Energy Transformations Are Involved?
Explain If This Energy Generation Is Non - Renewable Or Renewable?
Why Is This Energy Generation Good/What Are Its Positives/Advantages?
What Are The Negative Things About Solar Energy?
Please Help Me!! :(
There are two kinds of solar energy photovoltaic and thermal (3 if you consider photosynthesis)
Photovoltaic converts light directly into electricity (solar panels) thermal works by using concentrated suns energy to heat a substance and transform it into a gas which drives a turbine/generator.
Photovoltaic, heat energy and chemical energy (photosynthesis)
Yes it is renewable as long as we have a sun.
It is good because the sun is free.
It is bad because it is costly, not on demand (the sun doesn't always shine) and it uses up huge area's of land.
Where Does Energy Come From To Make Wind, Waves..?
I Know Waves Create The Wind, But Going Far Enough Back, Is Everything Moving On Earth Created By The Moon Pulling On The Earth??
Solar heating is the primary reason that mass in the atmosphere and hydrosphere moves. Most wave action in water is caused by the movement of wind over the surface of the water bodies, not the other way around.
