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 use the sun to power daily life: running your ac system, cleaning clothing, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, lots of homeowners discover that the convenience, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically decrease or perhaps eliminate your electrical bills
Whether you're a house owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a large portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your energy expenses and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs cost savings, the typical American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the past ten years, residential electricity costs have increased by approximately 3 percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard against unforeseeable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're an organisation or homeowner with ever-changing capital, going solar also helps you much better forecast and handle your expenses.
#4 Boost your home or business worth
Several studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need for homes equipped 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 a key component of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a great way to reduce 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 three to four lots 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 essential components of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that select to operate responsibly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of consumer purchasing choices, developing goodwill and improving organisation results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Many homeowners opt to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This means that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
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 energy business are notorious for their varying and undependable electrical energy rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and easy math, we can calculate just how much electrical energy will be produced, and most importantly, at what cost, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).
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
Is It Worth Fitting Solar Water Heater ?
I'M Planning To Fit A Solar Water Heater In (Satara, Maharashtra, India). So I Would Like To Know If It Is Worth Taking Loan From Bank ?
What Are Its Pros & Cons ?
Where Can I Get List Of Authorized Dealers ?
Even if you have to take out a loan from the bank, it will still make sense financially. Solar water heaters pay themselves off quickly, especially if you are heating with electricity now. If you are heating with gas, you will still get a good payback, but not as quickly as with electric.
There are very few cons to heating water with solar. You will have a back-up tank installed for when the sun cannot heat the water, so you should not experience running out of hot water due to the weather or time of day. The greatest Pro is that you will be heating your water with renewable energy. The sun rises everyday, and it's warmth won't run out for billions of years.
Try googling "solar hot water installer" or "solar hot water company." Choose a company that has done lots of installations before and that is close to your home. A good installer should be able to tell you about any government rebates or incentives that will bring the cost of the system down, thus lowering your payback time.

How Hot Might The Focal Point Of Solar Energy Be, Using A Parabolic Mirror To Collect And Concentrate.?
On Average, Ball Park Estimate. Does Size Of Mirror Matter ?
Depending on your latitude, the amount of energy reaching the earth's surface is so many KW/ square meter.( I forgot the exact numbers)
Consequently, the larger the mirror, the larger the amount of energy captured.
But the real reason I answered this question is to sound the Alarm!!
CAUTION, EXTREME DANGER.!!!!!!!!!
Even a relatively small mirror can generate very high temperatures. If by accident or otherwise you look at a mirror aimed at the sun blindness can easily result.!! This is nothing to fool around with.
Science Project Question?
What Determines The Speed Of A Solar Powered Car? Is It The Amount Of Sunlight It Receives Or Something Else? Please Be Specific. Thanks
Solar cars combine technology typically used in the aerospace, bicycle, alternative energy and automotive industries. The design of a solar vehicle is severely limited by the amount of energy input into the car. Most solar cars have been built for the purpose of solar car races. Exceptions include solar-powered cars and utility vehicles.
Solar cars are often fitted with gauges as seen in conventional cars. In order to keep the car running smoothly, the driver must keep an eye on these gauges to spot possible problems. Cars without gauges almost always feature wireless telemetry, which allows the driver's team to monitor the car's energy consumption, solar energy capture and other parameters and free the driver to concentrate on driving.
Solar cars depend on PV cells to convert sunlight into electricity. In fact, 51% of sunlight actually enters the Earth's atmosphere. Unlike solar thermal energy which converts solar energy to heat for either household purposes, industrial purposes or to be converted to electricity, PV cells directly convert sunlight into electricity. When sunlight (photons) strike PV cells, they excite electrons and allow them to flow, creating an electrical current. PV cells are made of semiconductor materials such as silicon and alloys of indium, gallium and nitrogen. Silicon is the most common material used and has an efficiency rate of 15-20%. Of late, several consulting companies, such as Phoenix Snider Power, have started offering technical and financial services to institutes and teams developing solar cars worldwide.
The primary reason why a practical direct solar car hasn't been invented yet is loss of efficiency in the cells themselves. The current State of the Art advanced solar cells convert >30% of the energy they receive into electricity to drive the wheels. This means that for the same performance, you need twice more collecting area, or conversely, a third as much total vehicle weight. This limits solar cars to a single seat, with no cargo capacity, and space age composite bodies to save weight. This, in turn, limits cars to solar challenge racers for demonstration, because the only ones who can afford them are teams with college, or corporate funding. Until there are more efficient collectors, they will not be practical, or affordable daily drivers.
Can Anyone Instruct Me On A Solar Energy Setup To Run Two Lamps With 60 Watt Bulbs For Backup Lights?
Just In Case Of Power Outage During A Storm - Enough For Maybe 9 Hrs
All you need is a 12 volt car battery, a 300 watt power converter and a solar panel with a voltage regulator.
The car battery powers the power converter which changes the voltage to 110 AC. which powers the light bulbs, and the solar panel recharges the car battery. The voltage regulator keeps the battery from being over-charged.
The larger the solar panel, the faster it would recharge the battery. Since solar panels do not need direct sunlight to generate power, larger solar panels would work better on cloudy days or ambient light conditions. Solar panels are expensive, so it would be more cost effective just to buy a couple of extra flashlights. However, with the setup I described, you would also be able to run small appliances such as a tv or computer durring power outages.
Are The Environmentalists Even For The Environment At All?
Environmentalists Have Effectively Lobbied And Shut Down Government Solar Panel Projects. It Seems Like Environmentalist Groups Are For High Energy Costs Regardless Of How The Energy Is Derived. To Me It Seems Like The Groups Are Being Led By People Profitting From Fear Mongering About Engery Rather Than About Trying To Help Or Save The Environment. That Is To Say, It Seems A Bit To Me Like Such Groups Are Into Environmentalism For Personal Wealth Than For The Environment.
They are not at all concerned about the environment which you have stated.
Environmentalism is a way to mask and camouflaged ways to get liberals to where they want to be: power over as many aspects of your life as possible.
Al Gore personally shut down the U.S. Nuclear power program under the Clinton administration.
Environmentalists stoped the use of DDT which has now been proven a weapon of mass survival. Millions have been killed because DDT was banned by an EPA administrator who ignored the decision of his own administrative law judge. How sad!
Look at global warming!! You are responsible for destroying the planet, but you can be absolved from this "sin" if you agree to higher taxes and roll back your lifestyle -- and let others in positions of government tell you what to do and when to do it and where you can live and can't live and how.
The environmentalists want you to save the earth by switching to CFL's but the hypocrites at the activist group Environmental Defense urges us to buy CFLs, it defines mercury on a separate part of its Web site as a “highly toxic heavy metal that can cause brain damage and learning disabilities in fetuses and children” and as “one of the most poisonous forms of pollution.” Greenpeace also recommends CFLs while simultaneously bemoaning contamination caused by a mercury thermometer factory in India. But where are mercury-containing CFLs made? Not in the U.S., under strict environmental regulation. CFLs are made in India and China, where environmental standards are virtually non-existent.
The environmentalists want you to drive hybrid cars but purchasers of hybrid vehicles, which are subsidized by the federal government and championed by environmental activists as a way to reduce gasoline consumption, are trading in their vehicles because of health fears concerning electromagnetic fields created by the hybrid batteries. Environmental activists routinely use the Precautionary Principle as a weapon against technologies and products they do not like.They assert that until and unless a product they oppose can be definitively proven to be safe, the product must be banned. Now, however, when consumers and some scientists assert that one of the activists' pet products may be causing serious health harms, the activists act like they have never heard of the Precautionary Principle.
I could go on, but you get the point.
You, me, the farmer, the hunter, the fisherman, the rural, the city folk are all environmentalists. The majority of mankind in this country does not want to polute. We as Americans have a watchful eye on everything that goes on environmentaly thanks to the internet (you can't trust the main stream media because they also have an agenda which is socialism). We as Americans will not tolerate poluters and those who will sacrifice the evironment for proffit.
The environmental elitists that you talk about don't want solar, wind, nuclear, natural gas, oil, or any other energy that is going to cause The United States to prosper. That is their agenda. They are good at using smokescreens to mask their intent to keep America's vast energy resources locked up.
For years extreme environmentalist have been predicting doom and gloom if we don't abandon our current lifestyle in favor of what they perceive to be the Green Way to salvation.
Envoironmentalist whacko's have caused millions to be killed without taking any responsabilities. Is it any wonder that since 1984 the Communist Party USA has ceased running presidential candidates and directed its members instead to vote for the Democratic Party candidate?
What an Inconvienant truth!
