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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning system, cleaning clothing, seeing TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing 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 considerable, lots of residents find that the benefit, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically decrease or perhaps remove your electrical bills
Whether you're a homeowner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can make up a big part of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your energy bills and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Make a great return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the finest ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy expense cost savings, the typical American property owner settles their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical power prices have increased by an average of 3 percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and protect versus unpredictable increases in electricity costs. If you're a company or homeowner with fluctuating cash flow, going solar also helps you much better forecast and handle your expenditures.
#4 Boost your home or business worth
Multiple research studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for homes 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 crucial part of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost variations in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added tasks at a rate nearly 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. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent way to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A normal property solar panel system will remove three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are necessary parts of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding organisations that decide to run properly. Services are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of consumer buying choices, creating goodwill and improving 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.
Numerous property owners select to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar service 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 business are well-known for their fluctuating and undependable electricity rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can determine how much electrical energy will be generated, and most importantly, at what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed 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
- 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
How Is Solar Energy Better Then Some Of The Current Enrgy Resources
Solar energy is not necessarily better than hydro or wind power. Solar energy is restricted to daytime sourcing, whereas hydro may be round the clock and adjustable in volume, but most significantly it may be much less costly.
Wind power is also unreliable, but is very economical when the wind blows.
Solar power in teh form of electricity is of course much more costly at the present time than nuclear or coal. New developments appear to be changing that.
Solar power as direct heating is much more economical than coal, oil, natural gas, nuclear. Other than geothermal (hot springs) it is the most economical source of heat. Again, Solar is not the best heat source if you have hot springs.
Solar (photovoltaic) power is very practical as a supplement to wind power... providing a daily base that can be depended upon, whereas wind can not.
Photo-voltaics can be produced with almost no toxic emissions, but this can not be claimed for all photovoltaics.
Solar panels do not produce a lot of noise or other pollution during operation.
How Does Generating Electricity Affect The Environment?
Plz Help By Tomorrow Plz Answer
It completely depends on how it's generated. If it's generated by burning fossil fuels like coal or oil then it releases a bunch of CO2 and other pollutants.
If it's hydroelectric then you are interrupting the natural flow of a river which could be good for flood control or it could be a disaster for native species.
If it's geothermal the impact may be minimal aside from building seem wells in natural habitats.
Solar energy has almost no impact if you exclude any pollution created during the manufacture of the solar panels.
Wind power has little physical impact, but giant fields of windmills can be considered an eyesore.
Nuclear power if generally very clean and safe - especially modern plants. But there is the issue of how to dispose of spent fuel. And in the case of a melt down - like the Chernobyl disaster in the former Soviet Union - an entire area can be left virtually uninhabitable for many years.
What Type Of Energy Resources Are Solar, Wind, And Geothermal Energy?
Depends on how stupid your teacher is. All are considered "renewable" however, they are expensive, and they do have thier limitations. Only the whacked out "green" moron's of yester year would deny it. There's a new wind of change happening now days, people are sick and tired of eco freaks telling them that they aren't doing enough, thier efforts don't show any results and tired of spending thier hard earned cash on someone elses 'agenda'.
Now that the cold hard facts are starting to hit people whom were acting like stupid sheep before, lapping up all the BS these green supporters spouted off, they are angry and not listening to them as much. With all the so called "experts" whom have sold thier reputations down the river for fame and to "jump on that bandwagon", they have little credibility today.
Is Solar Energy Expensive?
I Am Doing A Report On Solar Energy And I Need To Know If Solar Energy Is Expensive Or Not. Please Be Serious Please Its Really Important Thanks!
It's a matter of perspective. I had a system installed on my house that produces over 50% of my winter electricity and 75% of my summer electricity. It cuts my electric bills by about $2000 per year. The system cost $26K, but I got a rebate from my utility of $10K so I only paid $16K. Many people would say that is a lot of money. The system will pay for itself in 6.5 years, it is guaranteed for 25 years, so I will be getting most of my energy for free for about 18 years. If you also take into account that electricity rates increase an average of 5% each year, which means in about 14 years will will be paying double what we are paying today for electricity. I will be saving well over $50K over the life of the panels.
They have become more affordable with better tax credits as well. I only got a $2K fed tax credit. Starting this year you can get 30% of the total cost as a tax credit which would have increased my tax credit to $7800.
Another thing to compare it to. I paid $32K for my pool and $22K for my wood floors. So, my panels are the least expensive of the major upgrades I've made to my home.
