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 air conditioning unit, cleaning clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are significant, numerous homeowners find that the convenience, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably decrease and even remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a homeowner, service, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can comprise a big part of your month-to-month expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your energy costs and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.
#2 Make a terrific return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power costs savings, the average American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the previous ten years, residential electricity prices have gone up by an average of 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're a company or homeowner with fluctuating money flow, going solar also assists you better forecast and handle your expenses.
#4 Boost your home value
Several studies have discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher home values and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, demand for homes equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate changes in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a great way to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A typical property solar panel system will remove 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are important components of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that decide to run properly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of consumer getting choices, developing goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Numerous homeowners select to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar company for electricity-- 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 energy companies are notorious for their varying and undependable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can calculate just how much electrical energy will be produced, and most notably, at what rate, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).
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.

There's no system to purchase, no installation cost, no maintenance fees and no permit hassles. Check them out and see what you think. http://www.jointhesolution.com/energyfromthesun
Should People In Prisons Pay The Country Back By Manufacturing & Building Solar Panels To Be Given Citizens?
I Just Read A Question That Sparked This Thought. I'Ve Had It Before But It Seems To Make Sense. Give Prisoners A Way To Make A Little Money So They Are Better Off When They Get Out & Create Energy For The Country At The Same Time? Say Making Deep Cycle Batteries, Rectifiers & Solar Panels?
A Constructive Outlet & Hope Will Help Prisoners. They Will Still Be Punished By Loss Of Freedom, But Maybe The Loss Of All Future & Butt Rape Spreading Aids Is Something We Could Eliminate From Their Punishment?
This Would Obviously Only Work If The Public Grabbed Politicians By The Necks & Went To Tossing Them In With The Prisoners If They Tried To Exploit This, Especially By Finding Reasons To Toss People In Jail & Using The Work To Profit Themselves.
Progressives Have Turned Prisons Into A Place Where People Go To Be Changed Into Huge Burdens On Society So They Can Help Crush The System. I Think We Can Do Better. Make Prison Like The Military. You Follow Orders Or You'Re ******, If You Really **** Up You Get Shot And Cremated And No One Has To Bother With Your Dead Ender *** Ever Again.
A Kinder & Gentler Nation With A Low Tolerance For Corruption & A Lot Less Bullshit. That'S What We Need.
I like the idea of prisoners doing things like picking up trash on the roadside or cleaning up rivers. Perhaps picking fruit (the jobs that undocumented workers do because they don't pay enough for Americans to make a living wage) etc. But Manufacturing jobs should go to people that haven't committed crimes.
In short I'm for using prison labor as long as it's not used to compete with workplace jobs
What Is The Most Cost-Effective Place To Buy Large Solar Electric Panels?
We Don'T Have Enough Money Right Now To Buy Capacity For The Whole House, Which Would Probably Require About 12 Kilowatts. However, I Would Like To Start Buying Panels Toward Building Up Toward That.
But I Want To Buy The Most Solar Panel For The Least Price. I Think That Piecing A Lot Of Very Small Panels Together Will Be A Very Expensive Way To Do It.
Does Anyone Know The Least Expensive Way To Buy Large Solar Electric Panels?
Great answers here. Just to summarize, in order of priority:
1) Reduce usage first. For every $1 you spend on conservation, that's about $4 less you need to spend on your solar system. It costs less to use less electricity than to make your own.
2) Research solar hot water. Solar hot water is ~ 85% efficient, as opposed to ~20% for solar electric. You get a better bang for your buck installing solar thermal than solar electric.
3) Install solar electric. Prices for solar panels have dropped dramatically this year as the demand in Europe has dropped and people are having trouble getting home equity loans in the US. You can get better pricing if you buy by the pallet (depending on the panel, 20 - 30 panels). You are right that you don't need to generate all that you use, and if you do steps 1 and 2, you'll be using less anyways.
Which Is A Better Way To Use Solar Energy, Mass-Production Or Individual Home Usage?
I Know We Need To Put A Ton Of Effort Towards Research In Renewable Energy, Specifically Solar. But When It Actually Becomes A Viable Alternative To Oil, And We Can ~Store~ Solar Energy Efficiently, Would It Be Best Put To Use Atop Individual Homes And Buildings, Or As A Source Of Electricity For Whole Cities?
The biggest problem you have with large solar installations is finding a large area near a major population center. In many cases the town councils love the IDEA of solar energy BUT just don't want the solar energy farm IN THEIR TOWN!
In terms of efficiency, a large solar installation is far more efficient than solar panels on everybody's roof.
However in this case the Political decision ends up trumping the Engineering decision.
