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 resident to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothes, enjoying 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 ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, many homeowners discover that the benefit, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly minimize and even eliminate your electric bills
Whether you're a house owner, company, or nonprofit, electricity expenses can comprise a big part of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll produce 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 decrease your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.
#2 Make an excellent return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power expense cost savings, the typical American house owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the past ten years, property electrical energy prices have actually gone up by an average of three percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure against unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a business or homeowner with fluctuating cash flow, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and manage your expenditures.
#4 Boost your house worth
Numerous studies have actually discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and offer quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial part of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate variations in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a great way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible 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 remove 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are necessary elements of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that choose to run responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of customer getting decisions, developing goodwill and improving organisation results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Lots of homeowners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
Since 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 unreliable electricity rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can compute how much electricity will be generated, and most notably, at what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Long Can Solar Energy Be Stored?
I Am Purchasing Panels To Help Consume Less Energy. I Need To Know If The Storage Is Long To Buy Less Panels. Trying To Figure If I Should Buy More Than Two. I Would Like To Run Normal Usage Of Lights In The Home.
Solar energy can't be stored at all.
As soon as the sun stops shining (at night) there is zero energy available.
What happens is that solar energy is transformed into electricity which can be stored in a battery.
The storage batteries are a crucial (and expensive) part of using solar energy.
You buy as many batteries as you require to run appliances during the night time. It needs to be tempered with the ability of the solar panels to charge up the batteries.
I think you better swap over to LCD lights if you want to run them off batteries. Even the "energy efficient globes use a lot of power.
How Is Solar Energy Converted Into Electrical Energy?
How Is Solar Energy Converted Into Electrical Energy?
Special crystals in the panels collect electrons as they hit the plates, sending them all through current gathering it in one system
Why Should The Us Use An Alternative Energy Source?
Writing A Persuasive Essay On It But Know Nothing About It
I would suggest to answer with questions that should have been asked alternately.
like.... "Why should the US use an alternative energy source for _________?"
For Cars- Why? I really do not know. We have had alternatives in the forms of electricity, steam, black powder, and solar for even up to 100 years! There just isn't a better "bang for the buck" so to speak... Or there isn't an alternative that is more efficient for less money than fossil fuels.
For USA's Power- We use several forms right now including: coal, water/hydro, natural gas, oil, and nuclear. What we should invest more in is the use of Nuclear Power Plants. It has a history of misinformation and misunderstanding around the world and especially in the United States. It is our cleanest, safest, and cheapest option for the money.
When Will We Have Solar Powered Vehicles On The Streets ?
I Know That Solar Roof Tops Are Available For Cars, But The Range Is Minimally Boosted. And Then The Solar Cars For Endurance Races.. But They Are Not Designs For The General Public. I Like To Know When Electric Vehicles Will Be Powered By At Least 50% Through Solar Energy And Built In Vehicle Solar Panels ?
All the vehicles Ive seen online are still just too heavy to use all the on board solar power to transport someone down the road. It becomes a trade off... you need more surface area to have more solar panels, and this adds more weight..
Some bikers have mounted solar panels on the roof, side, or pulled a trailer... and that's a good start, but my favorite is THEKPV.
This vehicle has solar panels as the wind fairing, plus the bike is only 50lbs.. He doesn't say how much solar power it uses riding down the road.. But the site mentions using the solar power to charge batteries, and capacitors in smaller groups so I assume he can utilize the 50 watts of on board solar power to match 50 watts from the battery and ride down the road on 100 watts @ 50% solar. This is probably very slow.. compared to a car.
Why Is China Investing In Green Technology When They Have More Coal Than Anyone?
Not Just To Export, But To Produce Their Electricity.
Why Would They Do That?
Is The Problem That They Have A Leftist Liberal Government That Isn'T Very Bright?
Is The Problem That They Just Don'T Understand Fauxnews Science?
Is The Problem That, Maybe It'S Warming There, But Not Over Here In N. America?
This is just my opinion which may not conform with the truth but a friend of a friend had been to China back in the eighties consulting to the Chinese companies building underground storage facilities for the Chinese government that had the capacity to house billions of barrels of oil, huge quantities of processed iron ores and other precious metals.
As the bloke's curiosity got the better of him, he asked one of the facility guides what the Chinese government was doing mass hoarding so much natural resources that weren't being released to the mass market, the guide replied 'They are preparing for the inevitable future when everything will become scarce and the price will eventually skyrocket'.
So just as the Chinese were preparing for all contingencies even as far back as the eighties, I would assume that they are still preparing for the contingencies for the future now by tapping into all avenues of energy generation knowing that eventually the domestic consumption of energy will only increase with increasing demand placed by ever increasing population not to mention geopolitical considerations and future projection of the price of natural resources as time factor will eventually deplete all conventional source of energy.
