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 home owners to use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothing, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, lots of residents find that the convenience, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically decrease or perhaps eliminate your electric expenses
Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or nonprofit, electricity expenses can make up a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your utility costs and you'll still save a lot of loan.
#2 Make a great return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power bill cost savings, the average American property owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the previous ten years, residential electricity rates have actually increased by an average of 3 percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure versus unforeseeable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're an organisation or house owner with rising and falling money flow, going solar likewise helps you better forecast and handle your costs.
#4 Boost your home or business value
Numerous studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher property worths and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for homes 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 crucial component of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall 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 tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is an excellent way to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A typical property solar panel system will eliminate three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are necessary components of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that decide to run properly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of customer purchasing choices, creating goodwill and enhancing company results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Many homeowners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The utility business are well-known for their changing and undependable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can compute just how much electrical energy will be produced, and most notably, at what rate, for at least the next 20 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

Coal-Fired Power Plants Closing: Firstenergy Shutting Down 6 Sites In Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland
Akron, Ohio — Firstenergy Corp. Said Thursday That New Environmental Regulations Led To A Decision To Shut Down Six Older, Coal-Fired Power Plants In Ohio, Pennsylvania And Maryland, Affecting More Than 500 Employees.
The Plants, Which Are In Cleveland, Ashtabula, Oregon And Eastlake In Ohio, Adrian, Pa. And Williamsport, Md., Will Be Retired By Sept. 1. They Have Generated About 10 Percent Of The Electricity Produced By Firstenergy Over The Last Three Years, The Company Said.
The EPA has been working very hard on stopping fracking which is where our cheap natural gas has been coming from. Some coal plants that are newer are being retrofitted to burn natural gas instead of coal while we sell our coal to China. I have heard that in my area brown outs are a real possibility. Bottom line is that without cheap energy, the US can not prosper. No nation can.
There are 167 solar panels on the roof of the WH. They heat the swimming pool and provide domestic hot water. I don't have room for 167 solar especially if that's all I can expect out of them. How many thousands of dollars would that cost? 22 cents per unit of fossil fuel vs 22 dollars of solar or turbine unit of energy. Our electric bills are going to necessarily skyrocket. That's what they voted for. Middle Class? I don't think so.

How Much Solar Power Do I Need To Power A House?
On Average And How Much Would It Cost If I Installed It Myself
A typical US home will need a 3KW system, if the home is connected to the grid you can install a smaller system that will offset only part of your consumption. For DIY (buy the kit and install it yourself) you may assume $5 per watt ($15,000 for a 3 KW system), but you can claim 30% as a federal tax credit and depending on where you live, many states grant tax credits or other incentives

What Is The Most Energy-Efficient Efficient Way Of Boiling Water?
The Most Basic Trade-Off Is Between Heat And Time To Boiling. Assume A Circular Base Boiling Medium On An Average Liquefied Petroleum Gas (Lpg) Stove, For This Is Where The Question Is Practically Applicable. Well, It Might Also Work For Electric Stoves.
At A Higher Heat Setting, There Will Be More Fuel Consumed Per Unit Time, But The Time It Will Take For The Water To Boil Will Be Shorter. At A Lower Heat, Less Fuel Is Consumed Per Unit Time, But It Will Take Longer To Boil The Water.
The Desired Final Comparison Is Between Constant Heat And Overall Fuel Consumption (From Beginning To Heat Room-Temperature Water).
Thank You! :-)
It depends on the effeciency of your fuel and of your heating source. Natural Gas is very clean-burning (meaning that it converts most of its potential energy into heat) but on a gas stove you lose most of the heat of that combustion to the air.
So, to answer the question: consider the rate that you lose heat from water versus from air. Water retains heat much better than air (it also heats much slower) so if you use a less intense flame, one could imagine that more of the heat will actually make it into the water instead of to the air, and you don't have to worry so much about the water cooling down, because water stays warm on its own pretty well.
So the most effecient way would be the way the wastes the least heat, and I would postulate that this would be low heat for a long time (but not so low that the water loses the heat to the air via evaporation) but that might not be the case...
and with electric it's different, because you're losing less heat to the air, so it only matters where your electricity is coming from (gas, oil, hydro, solar, nuclear, etc) whichever uses less fuel would give the best ratio.
Isn'T Hydrogen For Cars, Etc. A Pipe Dream? Won'T It Always Cost More To Extract Than The Energy It Gives Us?
I Suspect A Hydrogen-As-Fuel &Quot;Solution&Quot; To Our Modern Energy Problems Is An Illusory Dream. Will Costs Of Extraction And _Safe_ Distribution And Use Ever Be Econimically Viable? At Any Rate, I Strongly Suspect Ill-Advised &Quot;Leaders&Quot; Touting It Haven'T Bothered To Ask The Right Questions Of The Physicists. Can Anyone Shed Real Honest Light On This Issue?
Its best to think of hydrogen as a 'battery' rather than a power source. Because we don't have incredibly abundant supplies of free hydrogen on earth, it is not practical for use as an initial energy source. You are also right in your assertion that it will always take at least as much energy to create hydrogen as we can get by using it, in accordance with the first law of thermodynamics.
Hydrogen is, however, viable as an environmentally friendly fuel to operate vehicles. This is because the conversion of hydrogen into energy is essentially pollution free and is of high efficiency. Thus if we use an environmentally friendly power source, such as solar power, to produce the hydrogen, we can run vehicles in an essentially pollution free manner. As a result, a switch to hydrogen fuel cell vehicles would allow reductions in the overall emissions of our national power production to be reflected in reduced total energy cycle emissions of our vehicles.
