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 air conditioner, cleaning clothing, enjoying TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are substantial, lots of property owners find that the benefit, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly reduce and even remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a homeowner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can make up a large part of your regular monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your energy costs and you'll still save a lot of money.
#2 Make a great return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power costs 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 rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the previous ten years, property electrical energy rates have actually increased by approximately 3 percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and secure against unforeseeable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a company or house owner with fluctuating cash circulation, going solar also helps you much better forecast and handle your costs.
#4 Boost your home or business worth
Numerous research studies have discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater property values and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, demand for homes geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key component of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price changes in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A normal property photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three 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 very important components of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that opt to operate responsibly. Organisations are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of consumer acquiring choices, developing goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Lots of property owners select to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility companies are notorious for their changing and undependable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic mathematics, we can compute how much electricity will be created, and most notably, at what price, for at least the next Twenty 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 Much Energy Is Used Making A Solar Panel?
A100 watt solar panel retails for about $500. Chances are it costs less than a quarter of that to build. Over its lifetime it will generate somewhere around 35,000 kilowatt hours of electricity. At ten cents a kilowatt hour that is $3,500. Is it worth it? You bet.
How Can I Get My House Converted To Work On Solar Energy And Is It Expensive?
I Saw An Episode In Extreme Makeover Home Edition Were They Built A House For A Family And They Used Solar Energy To Power The House I Like That Not Just Because Is Good For The Envirorment But Because I Think Is Better For Us Too, If We Take Care Of The Earth We Live In I Think Is Going To Last More.
Hurray for caring about Mother Earth. The cool thing about converting to solar energy is that you can do it a little at a time if you want to. One of the best sources in checking out all the options is the magazine Mother Earth News. This magazine has been around for as long as I can remember and have hundreds if not thousands of articles about solar energy projects. A good library will probably have back issues and I imagine you can go on line and get some article straight from the source if you are so inclined. As with any project it is the proper installation that is key in making the project worthwhile. So you either do it yourself, right, or hire people who have many years of experience in doing these types of installations. You might also be interested to know that the government gives very nice tax right offs for folks who convert to solar energy and some states can be very generous indeed. So check out all your different sources both on line and at the library to get the best information you can. Enjoy the process it is really fascinating overall.
What Do You Believe In For Energy?
I Believe In Nuclear For Electricity And Hyrdgogen For Personal Transportation. What Do You Believe In?
Hydrogen and wind energy are not stable forms of energy. They do produce good amounts but the are subject to the environment (or climate). Solar is a good option as far as producing energy goes, however, right now the technology to produce it is so costly, that it is not possible to use on a mass grid system and like the others is still subject to daily change (I mean the sun does set)! Nuclear is a clean form of energy. The risks are huge if something was to go wrong. But in all honestly, nuclear energy plans have far better service records than any major industry. They have little to no major accidents (excluding 3-mile Island - the was a major fluke as far as statistics go). But there is always a chance with anything. I think the combination of all would serve us best for now. And recapture of emssions from stream and ethenoyl get better each day, reducing cost for all of us. Alternative fuels, such as those from corn, soy beans, algea, sugarcane are our future! Once we master the technologies of using those the use of coal, oil and natural gas will decrease alot. Just my two cents!
How Can Solar Satellite Energy Be Used To Generate Electricity?
Where Is This Energy Source Used In The Us?
Where Can This Energy Be Used?
How Is The Energy Source Transported?
What Are The Advantages Of Using It?
What Are The Disadvantages?
Thanks So Much. =)
NASA use high-efficiency Gallium-Arsenide photovoltaic arrays to generate electricity for satellites including the Space Station, Hubble telescope, spy satellites, communication satellites etc. These are about 40% efficient.
On a much larger scale such arrays could generate electricity in space, but would have to be transported back to earth perhaps in the form of a very high-energy microwave beam. The receiving station on earth would regenerate the electricity from the microwave energy.
Advantages? - zero carbon, 24/7 energy (The sun always shines in space)
Disadvantages? - the microwave beam could do serious harm if it went off-course. Also if the satellite is geo-stationary the earth's shadow would reduce the overall energy output.
How Did Germany Become A World Leader In Solar Energy Technology ?
Despite Being A Nation Of Cloudy And Sometimes Cold Weather.
in short, its because they came up w the technology though the weather least permits it.
the germans were the first to come up with the siemens reactor process technology back in mid 1900s. the siemens reactor its a highly efficient and cost, energy effective process to convert silicon to polysilicon where the end product, polysilicon are used to manufacture solar cells for the solar panels.
today, the siemens reactor is a much sought after silicon process (though there are other methods of extracting polysilicon), and so have been patented and kept under strict confidentiality, to only the big players of the solar energy industry companies from well developed countries like usa, germany, uk while china and taiwan as major stake holders are catching up in the game.
