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, cleaning clothes, enjoying TV, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are substantial, many property owners find that the convenience, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically reduce and even eliminate your electric costs
Whether you're a house owner, company, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can make up a large part of your regular monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate free 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 minimize your energy costs and you'll still save a great deal of cash.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the finest methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power costs savings, the average American homeowner 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 advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the past ten years, domestic electricity costs have actually increased by approximately 3 percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure against unpredictable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're an organisation or homeowner with changing capital, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home value
Several research studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher home values and sell more quickly than non-solar homes. 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 informed about solar, demand for properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential element 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 nation from rate variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is expected to continue. Because 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 an excellent method to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A common residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to four heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are important parts of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding services that decide to run responsibly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of customer getting choices, creating goodwill and enhancing company results.
#9 Start Conserving 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 loan down.
Many homeowners decide to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar company for electrical power-- 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 Financial investment
The utility companies are well-known for their changing and undependable electrical energy rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can calculate just how much electrical power will be produced, and most importantly, at exactly what price, 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.

What Is More Important To Control Global Warming Solar Panels Or Trees?
If Everyone Put Solar Panels On Their Roofs They Would Have To Remove All The Trees Near Their Homes That Would Shade Those Panels For The Panels To Work At Maximum Efficiency.
since global warming is a fantasy, the answer is neither, but plant a bunch of trees anyway because they are nice to look at unlike solar panels and wind turbines, and birds can live in trees as to being butchered alive by wind turbines
Nuclear Energy Vs. Solar Energy?
How Many Solar Panels Would It Take To Produce The Same Amount Of Energy As 4 Standard Nuclear Reactors?
Also, How Much Energy Can Be Produced From Uranium-235?
Are There Any Hazardous By-Products Associated With Solar Energy?
It is a complex issue to compare and contrast between nuclear and solar energy. Both have advantages and disadvantages, however; the solar energy involved with least hazard in comparison to the nuclear power. You can figure out how much damages caused by recent nuclear accidents and the caused of health hazards and side effects of various cancers and diseases. It is impossible to process the same amount of energy by solar panels to 4 standard reactors. However, it only could by imaginary of many millions of solar panels with every big plant. The following web with many articles provide you the chances to find out the answer yourself.
Everything About Solar Energy!!!?
In School I Have To Say Why Solar Energy Is Better Than All Other Alternative Energy Sources, Which Are Hydroelectric, Wind, And Geothermal. Can You Tell Me Everything I Need To Know About Solar Energy? How Solar Panels Work, How Much They Cost, Can They Break. I Also Need To Know Advantages Of Solar Energy And Disadvantages Of Others. Thank You!
I'm going to assume that this is a debate or panel discussion of some kind, and that you're supposed to advocate for solar.
To do that well, you need to know the strengths of the other technologies, not just the weaknesses. You will have to answer to their strengths, and also defend when they attack your weaknesses.
Without qualifications, solar is NOT better than any of the others listed. Solar is better in some situations. If we're talking about national energy generation, any of the others might have an advantage. If we're talking about what someone can put on their house, solar heat and solar electric is often the only thing that works. Most people don't have a creek or river that they can dam for hydroelectric power, and most people don't have a huge open field in the back yard with steady wind. Even fewer live right over a hot spot where there will be enough heat to generate steam. But even if solar is the only alternative, that doesn't mean it makes sense, if one lives in the forest, or very far north.
The main disadvantages of solar are cost, and that it doesn't work at night or rainy days. The intermittent issue is solved by having a backup system. Virtually all solar electric in residences today is installed *alongside* the grid, not instead of it. There are no batteries. If the solar doesn't provide enough, the grid makes up the rest. If the solar is generating more than needed, the excess is sold to the power company. Even if solar doesn't provide 100% of the house's energy, it still helps. With solar heat, there is a reservoir in the house, and if the sky is dark for too many days, a gas or electric heater takes over.
As for cost, even without any subsidies, solar electric is cheaper per energy unit (kilowatt-hour) than grid electricity in some places, such as Hawaii and most of California. Grid electricity is cheaper to make at the source, but by the time it's distributed over lines to a home, and all the taxes and fees are added, it costs several times what it took to generate. This is why a small solar electric system mounted right on a home can compete. Your competition may bring up old data on the price of solar - be sure to get recent quotes from an actual company in your area. Solar panels are 1/5 the price of what they cost 7 years ago.
You may hear an argument about solar spoiling vast areas of the environment. That would be a central generation plant. Instead of a 500,000 kilowatt plant, argue for 5 kW systems - 100,000 of them - each installed on a home's roof, which is not hosting much of an ecosystem, anyway. 100,000 systems - this is not far from what is installed in California each and every year.
Of course solar panels can break. But just about anything on a house can break, too, from a dishwasher to a leaky roof. Panels today generally come with a 25-year warranty, which gives an idea of how confident the manufacturers are. There are no moving parts, meaning less need for maintenance, and less failure. As an analogy, compare the wiring in your house to the engine of a car. Which needs more care, and which is more likely to break down?
