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, washing clothing, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, many property owners discover that the benefit, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably minimize or even remove your electric costs
Whether you're a house owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can comprise a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your utility costs and you'll still conserve a lot of money.
#2 Make a terrific return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power expense savings, the typical American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the previous 10 years, domestic electricity prices have gone up by an average of three percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and protect versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a company or homeowner with fluctuating money circulation, going solar likewise helps you better forecast and manage your expenses.
#4 Increase your house value
Multiple studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater home worths and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key element of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry added jobs 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. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a terrific method to decrease 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 domestic solar panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are very important parts of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding organisations that select to operate responsibly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of consumer acquiring choices, producing goodwill and improving company results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Many homeowners choose to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
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 business are infamous for their changing and undependable electrical power rates. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can compute just how much electrical power will be generated, and most importantly, at exactly what price, for at least the next 20 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

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
When Solar Panels Is Generating Energy, Where The Excess Energy Go When The Input Power More Than Need? And?
Depends on what type of solar power system you are using. If you are using a grid tied system, then any extra electricity you do not use will be sent back to the grid, and the local electrical company will purchase it from you.
But, if you are using a off grid system, then you will need deep cell battery storage for any extra power you create. Plus, you will need the battery system to use at night when the solar panels are not able to collect power.
The Laws Of Physics State That Energy Cannot Be Converted Or Destroyed. So Where Does Wind Come From?
This Is Confusing Me, If It Cannot Be Created Or Destroyed, Then How/Where Does Wind Come From? Also Is There Infinite Wind?
NO! The law states that energy cannot be CREATED nor DESTROYED but can be converted. This is the LAW OF CONSERVATION OF ENERGY.
Then, where does wind come from?
First, all of energy in our planet earth came from the sun, the solar energy. This solar energy heated the earth making different temperatures in different parts of the earth. Some parts has cold and some has warm. Air travel from warm area to cold area. The motion or movement of air is the wind.
Also, there is this CORIOLIS EFFECT, which is caused by the rotation of the earth and the inertia of the mass experiencing the effect. This effect also create wind.
Hope that answers your curiosity.
Which Is Better Hydro Power Energy ,Or Solar Power Energy?
I'M Doing A Science Fair Project And I Need Some Help. Which Is Better Hydro Powerr Or Solar Power. Where I Live, There Are Streams Running In The Backyard Off Everyones House. So Hydro Power Is More Usful Here. What Do Y'All Think?
hydropower is proven and reliable technology and currently the most dominant source of renewable energy in United States while solar power is the fastest growing industry in the country ans also the most abundant renewable energy source.
any way here's more info:
Should Solar Energy Use Be Increased?
Yes, California is trying to do just that. A few years ago we passed a law that requires energy companies and other manufacturing to begin reporting their emissions no later than this year and then begin working on reducing their emissions. The Goal is for CA as a state to reduce emissions to 1990 levels by I think 2012.
A couple of ways we are working to achive this goal is not allowing utility companies to buy "dirty energy" from nearby states, the entire energy portfolio is considered when calculating emissions, no matter where the energy was produced. That has forced the energy companies to turn to clean renewable energy.
We have a great renewable energy rebate system in CA, it varies depending on how an individual utility choses to use it. I am in the process of installing PV solar panels and I was able to get a $10K rebate from my local utility, I will also get a $2K federal tax credit, this has cut my out of pocket expense by half. My system should be paid for in less than 6 years, less in energy prices go up faster than expected.
The CA program is helping set the stage for other states, we have increased demand for panels which has increased production, which in turn lowers prices. This program has had a great economic impact for the state.
My solar panels help relieve the grid by supplying my home with electricity during peak demand. We currently suffer from rolling brown outs when we have heat waves, this could be a thing of the past. It is also cheaper to instal PV panels on homes and business than to build more electrcity plants.
Do The Solar Panels Store Energy?
Jay is telling you the correct answer about the PE cells. In addition, unless you have a "off grid " system most PE systems installed today don't use batteries to store energy rather they use an inverter to change the DC power to AC and synchronizes it with the utility power entering your home or business where it is consumed. Then when you generate more power than you use it is back fed into the power grid and you receive credits from the power company for that energy.
On the surface solar energy seems very simple but in reality it is very complex.
