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 everyday life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothes, watching TV, cooking supper. All while reducing 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 significant, numerous property owners find that the benefit, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically lower and even eliminate your electrical bills
Whether you're a homeowner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can make up a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your energy bills and you'll still save a great deal of money.
#2 Make a great return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power costs savings, the average American property owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the past ten years, property electrical power prices have increased by an average of 3 percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure versus unforeseeable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're an organisation or homeowner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise helps you better forecast and handle your costs.
#4 Increase your house value
Several studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater home values and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, need for properties equipped with solar 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 element of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate changes in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth 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 considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent way to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A typical residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are necessary parts of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that choose to operate properly. Businesses are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of customer getting choices, creating goodwill and enhancing company results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Lots of homeowners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. 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 Investment
The energy companies are infamous for their varying and unreliable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical power will be created, and most significantly, at what cost, for at least the next Twenty 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.
- Low, fixed payments each month

Frequently Asked Questions
What Emerging Technologies Will Make The Solar Energy Safer,More Usable, More Efficient, Cleaner, Etc?
Probably the biggest difference coming down the road in solar is battery storage. Tesla promises cheap battery storage in the next several years. This could be a real game changer. I even know some who were considering a generator installation and are looking into a battery backup for the house instead. At that point even with a modest amount of solar collectors makes some sense as a method to gather energy over time for emergency use.
The long sought goal of cheaper solar panels are becoming a reality. What is needed in the market now is innnovation on the permitting and installation. For this a modular design that can be approved at the factory rather than at the home would be one method
I Need To Make A Solar Cooker For Science Class. Any Suggestions?
We Need To Boil Water Using No Electricity, Just Solar Energy. Please Help Me Out!
Take a look at these things called "sun ovens", when I was in Haiti, we got them to about 250-300 degrees fairly regularly, depending on where you live it would be possible to boil water with something of a similar design.
I Have An Idea And I Want To Know If It Can Work. Thx Engineers.?
An Airport That Runs Only On Solar Power. Every Roof Has Solar Panels To Power It During The Day And It Has A Fleet Of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (Uav) That Are Solar Powered And Have Energy Collectors. During The Day They Fly Around In Circles And Collect Energy All Day Long And Then At Night They Set Down And Connect To A Grid To Power The Airport. A Completely Green Airport. So Besides Costs Are There Any Reasons Why This Wouldn'T Work And Of Course They Would Use Normal Electricity As A Backup Or Even Dual Mode So That Part Of An Airport Uses Electricity(Computers/ Half The Lights) And The Other Parts Like (Escalators And The Other Lights )Would Use Solar Power.
Well, there are 3 things you need here: How much energy an average airport uses, how much surface area it has, and how much energy you get from sunlight per surface area. Then assuming you have enough space on the airport to provide for its energy needs, you can look up the average price for solar cells and how much it would cost to cover it. Then you can see how many years you expect those cells to last (20 years), and calculate the costs of that vs. buying electricity from the grid for 20 years.
The bottom line:
1) It's a nice sentiment, but yes, the main problem is that it would still be too expensive.
2) I can tell you right now that the UAV's will spend all their energy flying around and will not contribute to the charge of the airport. Remember the amount of energy you get from solar is dependent on the amount of surface area of direct sunlight you are covering. Assuming you don't have football court sized UAVs, they will be useless for solar harvesting.
If You Were The Energy Czar Of Your State, Where Would You Invest Your Money?
Why? And Can You Explain Fossil Fuel Vs. Renewable Fuels
Fossil fuels are not replenished - once oil, natural gas and coal are taken from the earth and burned, they are gone forever. Renewable energy sources are geothermal, biomass, wind and solar. They never run out.
Of the renewable energy sources, geothermal is by far the most practical at this point in time. Solar and wind are sexy, but they are still in development. Geothermal is here and viable - and it works. So that is where I would put my money. To learn more go to the site below.
Solar-To-Hydrogen Energy The Future?
I Read This Interesting Article Of Using The Suns Heat To Break Water Into Hydrogen And Oxygen Molecules Instead Of Fossil Fuels And I Think Its A Great Idea. What Do U Guys Think?
Looks like an interesting idea.
I've done my best to not be engulfed on oil consumption. I take public transportation to work everyday. I recycle and the car I own is a Prius.
I"m all for green ideas :D
