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 everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothes, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, many property owners discover that the benefit, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably decrease or even remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a homeowner, business, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can make up a large part of your monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your energy bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.
#2 Earn a great return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity costs cost savings, the average American property owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the previous ten years, property electrical power costs have increased by approximately 3 percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unforeseeable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a service or property owner with ever-changing cash circulation, going solar also helps you much better projection and handle your costs.
#4 Boost your home value
Numerous studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and offer quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, demand for homes geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price changes in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A typical domestic solar panel system will eliminate three 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 corporate social obligation are essential parts of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that decide to operate properly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are an effective driver of customer acquiring decisions, producing goodwill and improving service results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Numerous homeowners pick to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This means that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar company 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 Investment
The utility companies are infamous for their fluctuating and undependable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can determine just how much electrical power will be generated, and most significantly, at what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired 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.
- 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
The Danger Of The Human Mind, How Far We Are Going?
Money And The Machines Money Reproduces, Will Substitute All Human Workers, Converting Man Into An Obsolete Being Who Will Become Extinct.?
Not likely. Man has to be around to buy what the machines make and fix them when they break, and develop more.
How Solar Energy Is More Expensive?
According To The Us Department Of Energy, Solar Energy Costs $156.90/Megawatt-Hr, While Coal Costs $99.60/Megawatt-Hr. I Understand How Producing Semiconductor Solar Cells Are Expensive, But Once The Cells Are Produced, They Requires Little Maintenance And Will Work By Itself Without The Need Of Fuel. So Where Does The Numbers Comes From? Thanks.
The costs are based on a 20 year life cycle and assumes the panels will be replaced every twenty years. The panels also start losing capacity almost immediately as the silicon oxidizes or gets degraded by the light and heat so there is a continual drop in output with age hence the replacement requirement is reasonable. Insurance cost against damages are also included. But in the view of people such as yourself who do not understand the time value of money or discounted cash flow, the costs assessment would seem puzzling.
How Is Energy Made From Wind Farms?
I Need An Answer For Tomorow. I Am Expected To Give In At Least 1 A4 Piece Of Paper So I You Reccomended A Site As Well, Thanks. I Am 13 Years Old, By The Way. Thanks!
According to the Law of Conservation of Energy, energy can neither be created nor destroyed; it can merely be converted from type to another. Therefore, energy can not be "made from wind farms."
However, solar energy creates temperature differentials in the atmosphere, so that air tends to move from an area of high pressure to an area of low pressure. This is called wind, so now we have solar energy converted to wind energy.
If you place a turbine in the wind, the wind will turn the turbine blades around a shaft to convert wind energy to mechanical energy. Then if you place magnets around the rotating shaft you will convert mechanical energy into electrical energy.

Why We Need Wires And Electronics What Is The Use Of Them At All .
I Get About Solar Energy But Why The Rest?
I'Ve Been Learning About Technology But I Don'T Know Why We Need Wires .
Radio communication limits the number of channels that can exist in the same area. Mobile phones only became possible by making the transmissions very weak and therefore limited to a "cell" so that someone else could use the same frequency in the next cell. The cells started out very large require 5 or 7 watts of power in the cell phones but now it's in the milliwatts. Wires limit the signals to the wires so tens of thousands of communications can co-exist in a bundle, with fiber optics, millions of communications can co-exist.
Wireless power transmission is at best only 80% efficient but more importantly, you can't limit the recipient and charge for the power. In the early days of electric power, scientists and engineers wanted to pursue wireless power but corporations realized their would be no way to bill for wireless power but they still wanted to fund research so they always pulled the financial plug before there was any largescale demonstration. Today, wireless power are limited to powering RFID's and in short range charging pads.
Mobile phones were almost unheard of before the 80's as an entire city could only host a small handful of them. It is their prevalence now that makes it difficult to understand why wires are needed but to people who grew up in the 80's or prior, it is the prevalence of mobile communications that doesn't make sense. To a certain extent, the young people are spoiled as they do not pay for their wireless services, their parents do.
What Are Solar Energy And Clean Energy ? What Are They For ?
What Are These Things? Why It Really Works ? I Wanna Know What Are They For.
well solar energy is obtained by the sun. and for solar panels the solar cells conducts/makes electricity from the suns waves. it is in the form of Direct Current (DC) which you cant do anything with really. it is then either sent to a grid tie inverter or a regular inverter which changes it from (DC) to Alternating Current (AC) which is what you use in your house. For the grid tie inverter it is tied into your meter for your house and when it produces electricity it makes your meter go backwards instead of forwards. then all the energy made in the either 10-12 hours of sunlight that day is stored and then be used.and your basically making money off of it or getting free electricity. for the regular inverter it would be sent to a battery charge controller which makes it charged the exact same all the time so your batter does not get fried. then when you want to use it you hook the battery up to the regular inverter and from the battery the (DC) is changed to (AC) and is ready to be used.
For solar Furnaces/water heaters they are basically the same thing as a solar panel but in the panel there is copper tubing i believe in there that is looped through the panel and in the tubing is a substance here in Pa its is antifreeze so it doesn't freeze in the winter. that is actually is whats heating up the water. the substance is then sent back down to your basement or where ever your hot water heater is and the heat exchanger has the water flow over the tubes containing the substance (antifreeze) and that gets the water heated up. these never come in contact with each other unless there's a leak.
For passive solar it is when the sun rays come through the window(special type of glass that allows heat in through the winter and summer but no cold air). this would generally be done on the south side of your house( that's how its done here in Pa might be the same for you idk. and basically the whole 1st and 2nd floor of the south side of your house would have a cement floor with insulation over top of it to create heat.
that's clean energy basically unless you want wind or hydro electric energy plants. which wind is basically the same thing as solar electricity, and for hydroelectric plants they do have bad sides because they can, and will destroy environments further downstream because not all the nutrients or fish or what ever needs to get down there will not get down there.
