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 utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioner, cleaning clothing, watching TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, numerous property owners discover that the benefit, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically minimize or even eliminate your electric bills
Whether you're a property owner, service, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a big portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your energy bills and you'll still save a lot of money.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power costs savings, the average American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical power prices have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard against unpredictable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a service or homeowner with changing cash flow, going solar also assists you better projection and manage your expenses.
#4 Boost your home or business worth
Multiple research studies have discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater home worths and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly 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 residential or commercial properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
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 produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop 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 nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent way to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A normal property photovoltaic panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are essential parts of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding organisations that decide to operate properly. Businesses are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of consumer purchasing decisions, developing goodwill and improving business outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Lots of property owners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar supplier for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes 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 electrical energy rates. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can compute what does it cost? electricity will be produced, and most importantly, at exactly what rate, for at least 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
With Windmills And Solar Panels Installed, Al Gore'S House Still Uses 20 X The Average Energy Of Americans?
Which house? Maybe the idiotic liberals that worship him will turn off their lights and go back to candles. After all, he should live the way he chooses while the rest of us sacrifice. Don't forget his fleet of FSUVs (fuel sucking utility vehicles) and his private jet. He did buy "carbon offsets"...from his own company.
uno linux: I believe his house in TN is 10-15k sq. ft.
How Much Do Solar Panels Usually Cost?
I Was Thinking Of Having Some Installed On Our Rooftop And Was Wondering If It Would Be Worth The Cost? The House Is Located In Sac, Cali. The Panels Would Face The Sun 12 Months Out Of The Year And In The Summer Roughly 14 Hours Of Straight Sun.
Solar panels are currently selling for between $4 and $6 per watt of rated power output. A typical panel that you might install on your roof would be rated for between 100 and 300 watts and therefore will cost between about $400 and around $1500 or so.
A complete solar power system also needs some other components and will have some installation costs and so the total installed cost of a solar system is typically in the range of $8 - 10 per watt of rated power.
Most home sized systems are rated in the 1000 to 10,000 watt range and therefore cost between about $8000 and $100,000 dollars to install. Many states offer rebates and tax savings that can reduce this cost by as much as 50%.
These systems will typically generate between about $300 and $2500 worth or electricity per year.
Solar panels are expected to last between 30 and 50 years and so these systems will likely generate between $9000 and $120,000 worth of electricity over their life time in current dollars. This will vary widely though based on local electricity costs and may well increase greatly in the future if electricity rates rise.
Simple Hw Help?
Sorry Im Currently Braindead And I Cant Think Strait
So I Have To Do This Project Using An Island And Describing Four Renewable Energy Sources That Can Be Found Or Set Up On The Island. I Already Have The Two Easiest; Wind Farms And Solar Energy
I Have A Couple Of Questions That I Would Glad If Someone Answered.
1) The Direction The Windfarm Must Face Is Opposite Of The Direction The Wind Blows In The Summer. Why Is This? Is It Because Summer Winds Are Longer Then Winter Winds Or Something?
2) The Solar Panels Should Be Facing South In Order To Catch The Energy From The Sun For The Entire Day. Why Cant It Face North?
3) What Other Sources Can I Use? (Ex Tidal) And Explain How I Can Use Them
The Island Is A Slim Island In A Slight C Shape. It Looks Kinda Like A Fat String Bean Or Something. Help
Wind changes directions at different times of the year
It cannot face north because it would not catch all of the solar energy. They get more sunlight facing south.
Tidal energy would work. Hawaii is doing that now. You find the direction of the tidal current, and it works almost like a wind turbine, only it is for current. http://www.eia.doe.gov/kids/energyfacts/... This is a good well explained site with an illustration to help you see and understand it.
you can also use geothermal energy as a natural source. http://geothermal.marin.org/pwrheat.html... this site will help explain what it is.
What Makes Solar Panels So Expensive In The Us?
I Recently Got A Quote To Get Solar Panels For My House And It Was Over $30,000! I Want To Do My Part To Reduce Global Warming And Support Renewable Energy, But How Can The Average Person Do It When It Costs So Much? Even With Federal And State Rebates, Its Way Too Expensive? Did Anyone See 'Who Killed The Electric Car?'
Yes, they are too expensive - but if more people bought them, the cost would come down. Even 30K is a good investment, though, if you plan to stay in that house a few years. Let's look at some numbers:
In my neighborhood (cold climate here) my heat plus electric bill averages about $350/month (about $4200/year.) Assuming I switch to electric heat, and I can provide for all of my energy needs from the panels, they would pay for themselves in about 7 years.
How much better would this be if you drove an electric car? (I drive one.) The average driver puts about 15,000 miles/year on his car. The average car gets 18mpg. At $2.50/gallon, that driver spends $2083/year on gasoline. And this number, along with the price of gasoline, keeps going up.
Total cost savings: $6283 per year. So those $30,000 panels pay for themselves in about 4.77 years. If the price of gas and utilities keep going up (they will), you'll be paid off even faster.
How Do Pv Cells Convert Radiant Energy Into Electricity.?
Im Doing A Science Final And I Need To Know How Pv Cells Convert Radiant Energy Into Electricity. Thanks.
1. Photons in sunlight hit the solar panel and are absorbed by semiconducting materials, such as silicon.
2. Electrons (negatively charged) are knocked loose from their atoms, allowing them to flow through the material to produce electricity. The complementary positive charges that are also created (like bubbles) are called holes and flow in the direction opposite of the electrons in a silicon solar panel.
3. An array of solar panels converts solar energy into a usable amount of direct current (DC) electricity.
