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 property owner to use the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c, cleaning clothes, seeing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, many home owners find that the benefit, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically decrease or perhaps eliminate your electrical expenses
Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can make up a big part of your month-to-month costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce 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 lower your utility costs and you'll still save a great deal of money.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns matching those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy expense cost savings, the typical American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against increasing energy expenses
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, property electricity prices have actually increased by an average of three percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect versus unpredictable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a business or property owner with ever-changing money flow, going solar also helps you much better forecast and handle your expenses.
#4 Increase your home worth
Numerous research studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, need for homes equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial part of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks 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 anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a great method to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A normal property photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are crucial parts of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that decide to operate properly. Organisations are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of consumer getting choices, developing goodwill and enhancing organisation results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Lots of homeowners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The energy business are well-known for their fluctuating and undependable electricity prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and basic math, we can compute what does it cost? electricity will be created, and most notably, at what price, for a minimum of 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
What Is The Major Source Of Energy In Our Solar System?
Nuclear energy in the sun, which is then transferred by radiation. The nuclear reactions are caused by colliding particles in the sun's core due to the massive gravity.
Is It Economical To Run A Solar Energy To Power My Electricals At Home?
I Was Thinking Of Having It Installed In My House But I Still Have To Do Some Research If It Is Economical And Efficient.
Unfortunately to use solar panels that convert sunlight directly into electricity is not economical or energy efficient. The only time it is really worth it is if you are in a remote location and it is one of your only options.
Solar panels lose 40% of the energy from the sun as heat loss. If instead you used solar collectors to directly heat the water you use in your home you would save more money and energy. Solar Collector systems are much cheaper. Why convert the suns energy to electricity only to turn around an convert it to heat again to warm your water?
Photoelectric Solar panels are very expensive to produce money-wise, and energy-wise. With current technology the amount of energy that is used to produce a photoelectric panel is MORE than the amount of energy it will ever produce. The quality of Silicon Crystal required does not occur naturally and the process that it takes to produce it is very energy intensive. ( 2100-2300 degree C temps are required ) Photoelectric power has the perception of being "green" but only if you leave the production process out of the equation.
as for the money side, you might be able to come out ahead if you can buy the panels outright and recieve a tax break. Then if you live in a very sunny area, the more direct sunlight you get the more benefit you recieve.
Why Is President Bush Wrong On Offshore And Anwar Oil Drilling?
The Us Uses Over 7 Billion Barrels Of Oil A Year According To The Energy Information Agency. Offshore Drilling On The Continental Shelf Would Give America A Little Over 2 Years Of Oil Supply According To Eia. Anwar Would At Best Provide A Little Less Than 2 Years Of Oil Supply According To Eia. So Instead Of Turning To Electric Cars Like The Phoenix Sut / Suv Which He Himself Endorsed On The White House Grounds He Shows His True Colors All For A Measly 4 Years Of Oil Production Which Would Take 6 To 10 Years To Bring Online. Wind And Solar Can Provide Half The Energy Of The Usa If Programmed Correctly. He Was Educated At Yale? Hard To Believe.
Because it is very expensive to drill offshore and we don't even know if there is oil there. It's a pricey risk! Not to mention the cost to the environment. Also, offshore drilling will not drop gas prices. IF and that's a big IF, oil is found it would not make it to the pumps for years maybe even decades. This is just a GOP gimmick.
What Are Your Views On Energy Production And The Environment?
I Don'T Usually Post Or Read Questions Under Global Warming, In My Experience, Most People Under This Tab Are Looking For A Fight, Not An Answer. We Live In A Home That Is Powered By The Wind And Sun For Environmental Reasons. I'M Not Concerned About Global Warming, My Theory Is That The Earth Will Rebalance Itself Whatever We Do To It, Even If It Kills All Of Us In The Process.

Thanks For Your Time, Rudydoo
I worked for more 35yrs in the power generation industry, and know what most people don't know, and that is that electrical grids have to operate in very narrow ranges, output has to match demand, voltage and frequency must be maintained, to do this means constant adjustment of load output, a lot of which is done automatically by 'free govenor action' some is done by preplanned load changes (we approx know peak demand periods) and a lot of load alterations are done as and when needed.
Of the renewables, hydro is brilliant it is the most flexible of all power generation, it can start up or shut down in minutes and control anywhere in between, Geothermal well I don't know that much about it, but it seems okay, tidal not so flexible but at least we know in advance what the tides will do. However solar and wind are really useless, they can't change load and you never know whether they will produce zero or too much, they cause a burden on other generating systems which have to make up for their lack of flexibility.
You say your home is powered by wind and sun, do you have grid back up? or do you just put up with lack of power, when the wind does not blow and the sun shine, or do you live in a place with permanent sunny skies and constant wind?
My view is give up the back to nature approach, but move forward to better technology, improved generating means (probably some form of nuclear) more efficient and less polluting generation, we can do it, we have the knowledge, the ingenuity, the innovation, but it seems we are lacking motivation.
Your second link, is about health, what about the many millions who do not have electricity and suffer respiratory diseases from burning wood and animal dung for fuel?
