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 house owners to use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning unit, cleaning clothing, viewing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, lots of homeowners discover that the convenience, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically lower or even remove your electric costs
Whether you're a homeowner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can comprise a large part of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate complimentary 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 utility costs and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.
#2 Make an excellent return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity expense cost savings, the typical American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, property electricity rates have actually gone up by an average of three percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and secure against unpredictable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're a service or homeowner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and handle your expenses.
#4 Increase your home or business value
Several studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher property worths and sell more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, demand for properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
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 create electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a great method to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially 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 every year.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are very important parts of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding organisations that opt to operate properly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of customer buying choices, producing goodwill and improving organisation results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no money down.
Many property owners opt to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You just 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 business are infamous for their changing and unreliable electrical energy prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can calculate just how much electrical energy will be produced, and most importantly, at what rate, for a minimum of 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
Which Are The Cheapest Universities In The United States For International Undergrad Students?
I Am From Bangladesh. I Am Looking To Get Myself Admitted Into A Reputed Undergrad Program In The United States. But Tuition Has Become A Matter Of Concern For Me Since I Am Not Able To Afford More Than 18,000 Usd/Year. In This Lieu, I Am Looking For A University Which Offers Undergrad Program For International Students At 10,000 Usd/Year Or Less. I Am Looking For Cse, Eee Or Marine Engineering. I Am Open To Any State, City Or University As Long As They Are Cheap And Offering Bsc Within My Budget Range.
Ps: It Will Be Extremely Helpful If You Kindly Provide Me With The University Detail Or Website Of The Uni.
Suppose, I Have Gpa 5.0 (On A Scale Of 5) In Secondary School Certificate (Ssc), Gpa 5.0 In Higher Secondary School Certificate (Hsc) And 7.0 Band Score On Ielts. Can I Expect Some Sort Of Scholarship? If Yes, Then A Bit Hints Will Be Extremely Appreciated.
You sound like an intelligent student. You can have a successful future with careful planning and strategizing. My advise to you is that its best to stay at home and study your bachelors degree at home. It can be in Bangladesh, India, or any such place. After you have a bachelors degree firmly in your grasp then come to the United States to study for your masters.
Honestly, if your funds are limited then there are very few options available. You can go to community college for the first two years. I recommend Richland Community College in Dallas Tx or Collin County Community College. A community college will teach you the first two years of college. Its cheap as in $3,000 a year. Plus room, food, living expenses of $15,000 that will be exactly enough for you to get a visa. Community college does not have a very challenging academic enviroment though but if you are desperate for a visa and money is tight then its a last option.
Some US embassies will NOT give you a student visa for community college. They feel its too simple/ basic and you are really wanting to permanently immigrate to the US. So this plan may backfire.
After two years you can transfer to a regular university.
My honest opinion is that you should stay in your country and at least get a bachelors degree before you try going abroad. Many students drop out of school due to lack of finances and end up becoming taxi drivers. Just stay home, go to college, then come here for your masters.
Many, many foreigners regret coming here prior to getting an education. In ten years time when you compare yourself to your class mates from home they will have a far better education than yours. They will live in a big house plus two housemaids while you are driving a taxi in the wonderful USA. Just a warning. Things can go well if you are very lucky and you come here with no education. But things are more likely to go badly and I say that based on experience.
Again, the best thing to do is to come to the USA after you have completed your bachelors degree.
My top picks for a 4 year college include UT Austin and Texas A and M. I recommend these two colleges because they are cheap, ranked in the top twenty of public colleges, and they are in Texas. Texas itself is a state that offers many advantages such as - cheap cost of living, housing is affordable, most foreigners are able to buy a home, jobs are plentiful, lowest unemployment rate, strongest economy, good weather, very little racial prejudice. It is a wonderful place to thrive as a foreigner.
Stay away from the east and west coast, namely New York, Massachussets, Los Angeles, San Francisco. Stick to Texas, Arizona, Utah, and other southern states. These places are not as glamorous and flashy as the others. Remember right now you are strategizing and planning for your future tomorrow, not what looks good on facebook today.
If you do come here I recommend you study these two fields: biomedical engineering (CAT scans, MRI machines, X rays) or renewable energy engineering (solar energy, wind energy). Those are the two hottest fields in engineering right now. The other fields in engineering are flooded (too many graduates). Its very important for you to study what is in demand because of the slow economy. That way you will be able to get a well paying job quickly after you graduate. I am giving you many helpful tips here. Read my answer twice and save it.
For a regular university:
To study in the USA you need a minimum of USD $30,000 a year to finance tuition, food and board. There are almost NO scholarships for international students. You can not get a student visa unless you have the money available in your bank account.
You need an F-1 student visa to study as a university student.
Getting admitted into college is pretty easy. Choose one of the "100 best public universities." Public means state or government. Private colleges like Harvard, Yale, and Stanford are too expensive and too competitive.

If Sunlight Is Free,Why Is Electrical Energy From Solar Cells Expensive?
Because solar panels cost a lot to manufacture. A solar panel that costs $3 can generate only 1 watt of power. 1 watt isn't much. 1,000 hours of using 1 watt would only cost about 10 cents from your electric company. You would need to use the panel for 30,000 hours to make $3 worth of electricity. That is over 3 years of 24 hour a day use. And since the Sun doesn't shine at night, and it is cloudy sometimes, and sunlight is not as strong in the morning and afternoon as at noon, you would need to use that panel for about 20 years to make $3 of electricity. So after 20 years it is free, all the years before that it is costing you as much or more than the electric company charges, except you paid it all at the start instead of at a rate of 10 cents every 1,000 hours.
What Material Is Used To Collect Energy From The Sun?
In Other Words,The Chemical Substance Of The Material With The Quality To Absorb And Retain Solar Energy.
Solar Energy Can Be Used for Heat and Electricity
When converted to thermal (or heat) energy, solar energy can be used to:
Heat water — for use in homes, buildings, or swimming pools
Heat spaces — inside homes, greenhouses, and other buildings
Solar energy can be converted to electricity in two ways:
Photovoltaic (PV devices) or “solar cells” change sunlight directly into electricity. Individual PV cells are grouped into panels and arrays of panels that can be used in a wide range of applications ranging from single small cells that charge calculator and watch batteries, to systems that power single homes, to large power plants covering many acres.
Concentrating Solar Power Plants generate electricity by using the heat from solar thermal collectors to heat a fluid which produces steam that is used to power the generator. Out of the 11 known concentrating solar power generating units operating in the United States at the end of 2008, 9 of these are in California, 1 in Arizona, and 1 in Nevada.
Two drawbacks of solar energy are:
The amount of sunlight that arrives at the Earth's surface is not constant. It depends on location, time of day, time of year, and weather conditions.
Because the sun doesn't deliver that much energy to any one place at any one time, a large surface area is required to collect the energy at a useful rate.
I Live In A Hot State, And I Wanna Learn Everything I Can On Solar Energy...?
First things first...there are three types of solar energy, passive, active, and photovoltaic. Photovoltaic is what most people think of when they think of solar power...they're solar panels.
Passive solar is the placement of windows, trees, etc. to maximize the heating (or cooling via blocking) that a building will recieve naturally from the sun.
Active solar is used mostly for heating and hot water generation. They're basically a system of black piping placed on a roof to generate hot water, which is then stored in the house to heat it and/or be used for consumption.
So I guess it depends on what exactly you want to do. If you want to generate electricity, look into photovoltaic. If you just want to heat your house, stick with either passive or active.
Hope that gets you heading in the right direction.
