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 use the sun to power daily life: running your a/c unit, washing clothing, enjoying TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, lots of residents find that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically minimize or perhaps eliminate your electric costs
Whether you're a house owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a big portion of your monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your energy bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.
#2 Make a great return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy bill cost savings, the average American property owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical energy costs have gone up by approximately three percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard versus unpredictable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a business or house owner with ever-changing capital, going solar also helps you much better projection and manage your expenditures.
#4 Boost your property value
Numerous studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater home values and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, need 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 an essential component of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate changes in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall 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 have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a terrific way to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A typical residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are important parts of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that select to run responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of consumer getting choices, developing goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Numerous homeowners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility business are well-known for their varying and undependable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate how much electricity will be produced, and most significantly, at exactly what cost, 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
Alternative Energy Thesis?
I Need Help Coming Up With A Thesis Statement Regarding Alternative Energy Being Implemented As Our Dominate Sources Of Energy Rather Than Nuclear And Fossil Fuels. Any Advice Would Be Much Appreciated. Thanks!
From Scientific American magazine Jan 2008
A proposal to convert U.S. electric grid to 65% solar by 2050 and almost 100% by 2100
Using concentrating photovoltaic and concentrating solar thermal power plants in the U.S. southwest.
Solar panels work almost anywhere. They just need photons, even diffuse photons on cloudy days is enough. Sure sunnier is better but they are practical over a fairly wide range.
The efficiency is up to 20% now at the best, and there are new thin film solar cells and panels that are cheaper to make. The power plants, I mentioned, work much better in a really sunny climate, like our southwest.
has a bunch of articles about the companies involved and the plants in California already running, being built, and under study. Pilot plants were built in the 80s and 90s and are putting out 350 megawatts. All the proposed and okayed plants in California add up to 2.6 gigawatts.
From 175 megawatts at a plant to be built near San Luis Obispo and a couple of 400 and 500 megawatt ones in the Mojave and two proposed plants of up to 800 and 900 megawatts each
They will be much bigger than the pilot plants. More should follow. Two of the companies are already building factories to mass produce the parts for the plants. For comparison; San Francisco could be powered by 1 gigawatt. Hoover Dam 2 gigawatt
medium size nuclear plant 2 gigawatt.
to see what oil really cost. http://www.setamericafree.org/saf_hidden...
benefits of solar vs oil would be a good topic.
If There Is So Much Unused Oil In Alaska?
It Seems The Reason Bush Said We Weren'T Going To Mess With The Oil In Alaska Was To Save It For Future Generations... Yet We Are Researching New Means Of Energy (Solar, Hydrogen, Etc.) Since It Is Clear That We Will Likely Be Driving Hydrogen Or Electric Powered Cars In The Future, Why Not Harvest The Oil In Alaska?
Some people see all energy options in some kind of good-versus-evil opera, and to them, oil energy is Evil. That's all. From any reasonable perspective, we should use it. What we're doing to the environment by NOT using it is having other countries drill the wells and pump the oil, those being countries that would gladly pave a rainforest without remorse if they thought it would save them a buck just today, i.e. countries that will make quite a sloppy mess getting the oil from the ground to us. Not to mention that these are mostly countries (e.g. Saudi Arabia) that we don't really need to be funding.
Sources For Safety Of Nuclear, Solar, And Hydro Energy?
How Safe Is Nuclear Energy Compared To Solar And Hydro Energy? Please Give Me Some Source
Hope these help!
What'S The Pros And Cons Of Solar Energy Versus Wind Energy?
I'M Planning On Building A Business. What Would Be The Advantage Of Using Solar Cells Or Windmills To Produce The Power, Or At Least To Keep The Cost Of Electrical Power Down? The Facility Will Be In The Midwest And Will Be Opened Year Round Thru Four Seasons.
Ideally you could install what is called an hybrid system.
It is a combination of solar panels and wind turbine and its working fine.
The turbine will run 24 hours and the solar panels will produce electricity during the day.
Let'S Talk About The Us Energy Policy?
There Is No Liberal Or Conservative Slant To This Question...Democrats, We Have To Face The Fact That Our Party Has Given Into The Extreme Environmentalists, Those Who Favor Artificially Raising Gas Pump Prices (Through Taxes Mostly) To Be On Par With The Rest Of The World. That Does Two Things: It Forces Conservation (Not Entirely A Bad Thing) And Makes Alternative Energy Sources Look More Attractive.
In The Meantime We Are Still Sucking Gas As A Nation And Sending Over $1 Billion Per Day To Oil Producing Countries, Many Of Whom Are Our Enemies And Would Like To See Us Dead. (Apparently Including A Guy From Canada On Ya Today)
There Is A Solution To High Gas Prices And Protecting Our National Security. It Is Natural Gas. T Boone Pickens Presented (Pre-Obama) A Plan To Greatly Reduce The Use Of Oil By Converting Most Semi Trucks To Natural Gas. Since They Tend To Follow The Major Interstates, It Wouldn'T Be Too Costly To Build (Or Convert Existing) Gas Stations To Natural Gas Dispensing. There Are 5 Million Trucks On The Road, And If Just Half Were Converted It Would Save $125 Billion Per Year In Gasoline.
One Issue Is &Quot;Fracking&Quot; And The Means Of Getting Natural Gas Out Of The Ground Safely. If You Ever Travel To Wyoming, You Will See That The Gas Is Practically Coming Out By Itself. The West Has Tons Of It, Enough For Something Like 140 Years.
I'D Like To Hear People'S Comments About This. It Seems Like The Easy And Sensible Solution To Our Energy Problems To Me.
When you think of how much energy a massive country like the United States uses, I do not think there is one magic bullet. I am willing to discuss natural gas, wind, solar, nuclear, hydroelectric, etc.
