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 ac system, washing clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, many home owners discover that the benefit, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly minimize and even remove your electric costs
Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can make up a big part of your month-to-month costs. With a solar 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 consume, solar will decrease your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of money.
#2 Make a terrific return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity costs cost savings, the typical American property owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the previous ten years, residential electrical energy rates have gone up by an average of three percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard against unpredictable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're an organisation or house owner with ever-changing capital, going solar also assists you better projection and manage your costs.
#4 Boost your house value
Multiple research studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater home values and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, demand for properties 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 independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost variations in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry 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 nation. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a great method to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A typical residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are very important parts of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that decide to run properly. Businesses are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of consumer buying decisions, producing goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Numerous homeowners decide to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy 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 business are notorious for their varying and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and basic math, we can determine just how much electrical power will be produced, and most significantly, at exactly what cost, 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.
- 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 Does It Cost To Have A Concrete Roof Put On A Structure?
I Am Looking To Buy Concrete House With No Roof On It And Am Wondering How Much A Concrete Roof Costs? It Is In Florida So It Has To Be Wind Resistant And I Would Like To Walk On It. Also How Much More An Angle? To Mount Solar Panels On?
Wind resistant is probably dictated by Fla. Dade County rules.
There is concrete tile roofs, there is poured light weight concrete methods and etc.
Anything over 120 miles per hour I would be leaving anyway.
Ike gave us 100 Plus here in TX and I live 100miles from the coast.
If you got the money, I am sure something can be built.
Then u have to waterproof it, concrete is not waterproof, it will have to be treated.
Why Dont We Just Use Solar Panels And Salt Water Extraction Machines To Get Water For The Cali Drought?
Hey Baboom, the cost is one drawback to that solution, but more important is the sheer magnitude of the problem. California is having a drought right now, has been for over a decade. Over the 40 or so years since world war two, developement out there has been staggering compared to almost the rest of the free world. Californians were safe in the knowledge that the Sierras would always generate and store enough water in the form of snow runoff each year that they could do whatever they wanted. That's just human nature, there is no blame here. The same can be said for governments spending the peoples tax money, or people driving way larger and more wasteful cars whenever the price of gas goes down.
This drought in California may be a natural cycle, or part of a larger man made dilemma, we will not agree on that until it is all over. The point is, the type of crops that were grown there for decades, and the sheer acreage, the type of lifestyle, like putting golf coursed in places like Palm Desert, all led to a much higher water to user ratio than anyplace else in North America. We would need to have desalinator plants that produce enough fresh water to refill Mono Lake once a day to keep up with demand. The energy needed to run them would be astronomical, even if you provided it with solar. You have to remember that asking why we can't do something like this isn't that we can't, but to use our joint resources to build a solar desalinator that delivered 100,000 cubic feet of fresh water per day would make those resources unavailable to other areas of our economy. The aluminum required to frame all the solar panels for example, would probably cause a price spike in aluminum four or five fold. Now jet airliners double in price, so we lose export from Boeing to other countries, which causes layoffs in high pay jobs like aeronautical engineering, and increases our national debt.
I think a desalination plant might be a good idea, but only as a small part of a diverse water supply system. Ideas like this are like a 12 year old wanting a new bike. He asks Mom and Dad for it, but he only sees the bike, he doesn't see the $200 that Mom and Dad do not have after buying the bike to pay for gas, or groceries, or invest for retirement. Successful lifestyles require balance. The rate that California uses water today is way out of balance with the resources available, or the rest of the world. Until we address that, no technology in the world will help us. Take care B, Rudydoo
If A Cell Was A Factory, What Workers Do These Parts Represent?
I'M Writing An Essay That Tells The Parts Jobs And Compares/Contrasts Between Plant And Animal Cells. I'M Acting As If Each Part Represents A Worker In A Factory, But I Dont Know Which One Each Should Represent So I'D Like Some Help. I Need Ideas For The Following Parts:
cell wall- the stucture/the infrastructure or maybe the titanuim, lead lined fence
cell membrane-selectively permeable membrane, how about the building itself?
nucleus- control center - the CEO's office
vacuole- food storage- the cafeteria
cytoplasm- where all the organelles are- i dont know. the air the workers breath :)
chloroplasts- photosynthesize- how about solar panels?
mitochondria- the powerhouse. the energly plant, the generator
endoplasmic reticulum- the hallways and corridors
golgi bodies- transport material outside the cell, so trucks and vans and vehicles and such
ribosomes- the workers
lysosomes- those bad workers who kill the factory :P
What Is The Depletion Of The Ozone Layer?
-Past And Present Actions To Combat The Problem...?
-What Is Depletion Of The Ozone Layer?
Well the ozone layer is 10s of miles above our head (about 60 miles up is considered outer space) and pollution is eating away at the ozone layer thus causing harmful UV rays to come through giving humans skin cancer, but with nanotechnology, stem cell research, and other recent technological advances, cancer won't be of a risk. However, stopping pollution via energy cars that run on electric, air, or water, solar panels, and other energy products and metamaterials will reduce or even reverse global pollution (or global warming, however this is a bit controversial) thus halting further damage done to the ozone layer and then that will give it time to repair.
Anybody Out There Living Off The Grid?
I Am Trying To Move In That Direction, How Do You Like It. Solar? Wind? Water? Combo? What Are You Using?
I'm going that way, too. Water is your best bet, it's strong and steady if you can make use of a stream. I don't have that. I live by the ocean and have lots of wind and sun, will use those two. Get ready to invest in some big battery banks and expensive, electric switchgear (AC/DC converter to make AC for your computer and washer/ dryer, etc.). If you have 3 wind turbines and a roof full of solar panels, you can pretty much go off the grid (well, in a climate like Vancouver Island, that is). If you can make yourself about 3000 to 5000 Watts, you're cruising.
You can make things a lot more efficient by losing those stupid light bulbs and going fluorescent or LED (we're talking hundreds of Watts of savings in the average household).
Only bummer is heating, it just doesn't produce enough juice for it. Well, unless you add a few wind turbines and panels.
All the best to you! Good thinking, nice ambition. If everybody did this, the world would be e a better place.
