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 homeowner to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your a/c unit, washing clothing, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, many home owners discover that the benefit, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably decrease or even remove your electric bills
Whether you're a property owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can comprise a big part of your monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power costs savings, the typical American house owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical energy prices have increased by an average of 3 percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and secure versus unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a business or property owner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home or business worth
Multiple studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher property values and offer quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, need for homes geared up 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 element of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost changes in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A normal residential solar panel system will remove three to four loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are very important components of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding services that decide to run properly. Businesses are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective driver of customer getting choices, producing goodwill and enhancing organisation results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Many homeowners opt to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility 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 utility business are infamous for their varying and unreliable electrical energy prices. There is plainly an upward trend.
With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can determine just how much electricity will be created, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).

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
I Heard That Solar Energy Is Expensive , So Why People Think Its Better To Use It ? ...
Solar is not as expensive as it used to be. It will not make sense for every household today, but will for some. A lot of it depends on where a person lives, and what the next best alternative is.
For example, if someone has a cabin on 20 acres in the north woods, there will be lots of downed timber on the ground, and it might be best to heat water with a wood-fired stove. Not much sun in the woods.
On a 5000 square foot lot in Hawaii, fuels are scarce. Even natural gas would have to be imported. An electric water heater would be expensive, because electricity would also be generated mainly from imported fuels. In that case, a solar water heater would make abundant sense.
Solar electricity follows a similar argument. One thing to remember is that the economics for an individual homeowner or business are different from that for a power company. The electric company can have a huge turbine fired by coal, natural gas, or nuclear. While that may be cheaper than solar, by the time the electricity gets to someone's house, with distribution charges and profit added in, the electricity is expensive. Solar electricity may actually be cheaper than the power company from the homeowner's point of view. It is at our house, and in fact, we've had solar electricity for five years now.
How Bush/Mccain Promote The Wind, Geothermal And Solar Energy?
If They Are Controlled By The Oil Companies?
the last energy bill that gave tax breaks to oil companies was a complete PLAY ON WORDS as usual...
the bill gave huge tax incentives for oil companies to "explore alternative energy sources". Which means.... where can we poke more holes in the ground ?...it doesn't mean "alternative forms of energy"...thats just ridiculous...what benefit would there be for an oil company to find alternatives to oil ? NONE !
wake up people...y'all got bushwacked !
"alternative energy...err uhhummm !... sources".... very clever don't you think ?
Which Is Better Nuclear Of Solar Energy?
Plz Give Your Opinion And A Reason Why?
Both have their advantages and problems but solar is clearly the winner here.
1. Environmental long term effects - cyanide , arsenic and fairly nasty chemicals are used in the production of solar cells. While nearly inert when they are in place, the production of these energy units could be ALOT more friendly.
That said, Nuclear power - in this regard is messy all around, the mining, extraction, storage, use and disposal of radioactive materials make this the LONG term looser.
Millions if not billions of years from now, the radioactive substances we create today, will still be dangerous, long after any solar cells have been turned back into sand.
2. Power concentration - Solar - except in very special circumstances is pretty "low" power concentration, you can power a house, or a small industrial park, but not necessarily a foundry or a heavy manufacturing facility - since the power requirements are SO much higher for a materials manufacturing plant than say - the average house. In this way currently nuclear has ALOT of advantage.
In the future, (provided we venture beyond Earth), vast solar arrays in space, could provide power of gigantic proportions.
3. Location - Nuclear plants and Solar facilities are EXPENSIVE to built. But nuclear facilities require alot of regulation, maintenance and other activities far beyond that for a solar facility of equivalent size and capacity. Secondly, while solar and nuclear are not cheap, only solar really can scale to small use (personal power), or to industrial scales.
4. Safety - Different from environmental safety, the worst societal threat from solar power, is likely to be people stealing solar panels and arrays and using them or selling them on Ebay is ethically bad, with nuclear power plants, stealing the fuel and selling it on Ebay, is otherwise a national security problem because usually nuclear fuel is also good for (at least) making a "dirty" bomb.
5. Availability - Solar is great- when the sun is out, but turn the lights out and solar is just not cutting it. Nuclear is "always on" or reactor facilities are created in such a way that some part of the plant is "always" online. So battery technology may improve over time, but at the moment, solar suffers from what is called "intermittency", but what most normal folks call "night".
How Is Solar Energy Formed?
Doing A Project... How Is Solar Energy Formed???
Solar energy is the light and radiant heat from the Sun that powers Earth's climate and weather and sustains life. Since ancient times it has been harnessed for human use through a range of technologies. Solar radiation along with secondary solar resources such as wind and wave power, hydroelectricity and biomass account for over 99.97% of the available flow of renewable energy on Earth.
Solar energy technologies can provide daylighting and thermal comfort in passive buildings, potable water via distillation and disinfection, hot water and space heating, space cooling by absorption or vapor-compression refrigeration, thermal energy for cooking, high temperature process heat for industrial purposes, and electrical generation by thermal or photovoltaic means.
Would This Apply For A Company Building A Home With Solar Panels?
I Am Doing A Research Paper Regarding Building Energy Efficient Homes In New Jersey. In A Recent Article I Read:
&Quot;For Solar Power, New Jersey Residents Could Save Almost Half The Cost Of Installing Solar Panels On Their Houses Thanks To The Plan. As Outlined By The Stimulus Package, There'S A 30 Percent Tax Credit Or Grant That Is Available To Anybody Who Installs Solar Panels Through The End Of 2010.&Quot;
Does Anyone Know If This Would Apply To A Company Building A House With Solar Panels?
In Other Words, If A Company Built Homes That Come With Solar Panels Arleady Installed, Could They Recieve Money From The Gov'T... (Or Tax Credit, Im Not Really Sure What That Is Though)
Thanks And Please List Sources If You Have Any
This is an individual incentive. The benefit to a company is they are paid to add this value to the home resulting in increased revenue. It may apply to a new home buyer-buying a new solar panel equipped home,but this is not clear.
