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 air conditioner, washing clothes, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, lots of residents discover that the convenience, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably reduce or perhaps remove your electric bills
Whether you're a homeowner, business, or nonprofit, electricity expenses can comprise a big part of your month-to-month costs. 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 consume, solar will decrease your energy costs and you'll still save a lot of money.
#2 Make an excellent return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity expense cost savings, the typical American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, property electricity rates have actually increased by approximately 3 percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unpredictable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're an organisation or house owner with ever-changing money circulation, going solar also assists you better projection and handle your expenditures.
#4 Boost your house worth
Multiple research studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater home values and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for homes 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 an essential element of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar market included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a great way to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A typical domestic photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are essential parts of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that opt to operate responsibly. Services are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of consumer purchasing choices, creating goodwill and enhancing 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 money down.
Numerous property owners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This means that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
As of 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 infamous for their changing and undependable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can determine how much electricity will be generated, and most notably, at exactly what cost, for a minimum of 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
How Does Alternative Energy Benefit The Economy And The Environment?
Please Explain For Both:
Thanks In Advance :)
Alternative energy can be good for the environment and the economy several ways. Common sources of energy, especially in the developing world are based on the burning of fossil fuels. The byproduct of this process is a high output of Carbon into the air. It's been discovered that such emissions are primary causes for acid rain as their are incorporated into the cycle of precipitation and evaporation in neighboring region. This is called a negative externalities as it generates a negative effect on the regions surrounding the source of emissions. This has effects on industries from agriculture and forestry to fishing. This is a basic example, and I'm sure you could find many case-specific examples if you spent the time doing the research.
Alternative sources of energy like geothermal power, wind power, hydro power and solar power open the door to a whole new phase of expansion in the energy sector. Thousands of jobs can be created to thus help the economy. Energy trading between countries is one of the most profitable traded commodities, and generating energy through renewable (free) resources like wind and the sun can only be a positive if they increase the amount of energy available to be consumed and used.
Everything from appliances to cars require energy and as developing nations around the world become more advanced, the need for energy will only increase.
Essays can be written on this with many more examples.
What Has Renewable Energy Done For Us In The Past?
Over usuage of renewable energy resources have resulted in deforestation of our forest lands.
Hydroelectric energy has resulted in endangering the salmon due to dams built on water ways and polluting the rivers due to impounding the water.
Photovoltaic energy from solar cells is not a true "renewable" energy. It cost more in pollution to make the solar cells than the other sources of nonrenewable energy. The same is true of Wind Generators.
How Can I Convert My Homemade Solar Panel (15.3 Dcv And 3 Amp) To Ac?
I Made My Own Solar Panel At Home And Im Trying To Use It To Power An Ac Fan Or Something Small Like That. If You Have Any Tips Or Tricks Or Specific Inverters That Might Help Me Out, Let Me Know. Thank You
How did you measure the 15.3 volts and 3 amps? Do you mean 15.3 volts at 3 amps? Or do you mean 15.3 volts open circuit? If you haven't measured it under load, now is the time to do it.
Assuming you measured it under load, you have about 45 watts of power at the panel.
Motors draw more current at start up than they do while running. So you need 2-3 times the running current at start up.
Do you plan to use a battery? Or directly connect the panel to the inverter? Charging a suitable battery through a charge controller will give you a lot more stable results.
Consider getting a 12 volt fan (sold for truck/RV usage). This would avoid a number of potential headaches with the inverter idea. 15 watts or less is my guess. If the voltage runs too high you can always add a power resistor to drop the voltage.
But if you really want the AC, note the following:
-You lose power in the inverter. Probably quite a bit. An inverter draws power even if it isn't supplying power to anything.
-Any cheap inverter will probably act "squirrely" under under volt & over volt conditions. Hooking a panel directly to an inverter sounds like a recipe for problems.
Which Manufacturing Company(Not Installing Company) Makes The Best Solar Energy Panel?
i know you didn't ask about installing, so i apologize but thought i would point you towards this website that has a wealth of info and helps calculate how many panels, how much space is needed and other details, in case you didn't know of it. it is more centered towards installs though. i'm looking into this as well right now and found this site to be rather useful though.
How Is Convection, Percipitation And Fossil Fuels A Form Of Solar Energy?
fossil fuels were either vegetation or marine microbes. the energy in them, they got it from the sun and thats the energy in fossil fuels.
for precipitation cloud formation is necessary. clouds form because of water evaporating from the earth and evaporation is caused by solar energy. here the solar energy is converted into kinetic energy of water molecules. the KE is converted to potential energy when they form clouds. the pe is converted into the ke of rain or snow or hail during precipitation.
convection means a type of heat transfer. in the case of air, the particles of air obtain heat from the earths surface, heated by the SUN. then they move up(ke). then a low pressure is created which is filled by surrounding air and that is wind.
