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 a/c, washing clothing, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, numerous property owners discover that the benefit, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically minimize or perhaps eliminate your electrical costs
Whether you're a house owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can make up a big portion of your monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your utility expenses and you'll still save a great deal of loan.
#2 Earn a great return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the finest methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy costs cost savings, the average American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical energy prices have actually increased by approximately 3 percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unforeseeable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a company or house owner with changing capital, going solar likewise assists you better projection and manage your expenses.
#4 Increase your house value
Several research studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, need for residential or commercial properties 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 an essential part of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price changes in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry 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 development is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent method to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A common domestic photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are essential elements of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that decide to run responsibly. Services are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of customer getting choices, producing goodwill and enhancing organisation 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 cash down.
Many house owners pick to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar supplier for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility 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 companies are notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electricity prices. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical power will be created, and most importantly, at what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired 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

- 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
With Windmills And Solar Panels Installed, Al Gore'S House Still Uses 20 X The Average Energy Of Americans?
Which house? Maybe the idiotic liberals that worship him will turn off their lights and go back to candles. After all, he should live the way he chooses while the rest of us sacrifice. Don't forget his fleet of FSUVs (fuel sucking utility vehicles) and his private jet. He did buy "carbon offsets"...from his own company.
uno linux: I believe his house in TN is 10-15k sq. ft.
How Much Do Solar Panels Usually Cost?
I Was Thinking Of Having Some Installed On Our Rooftop And Was Wondering If It Would Be Worth The Cost? The House Is Located In Sac, Cali. The Panels Would Face The Sun 12 Months Out Of The Year And In The Summer Roughly 14 Hours Of Straight Sun.
Solar panels are currently selling for between $4 and $6 per watt of rated power output. A typical panel that you might install on your roof would be rated for between 100 and 300 watts and therefore will cost between about $400 and around $1500 or so.
A complete solar power system also needs some other components and will have some installation costs and so the total installed cost of a solar system is typically in the range of $8 - 10 per watt of rated power.
Most home sized systems are rated in the 1000 to 10,000 watt range and therefore cost between about $8000 and $100,000 dollars to install. Many states offer rebates and tax savings that can reduce this cost by as much as 50%.
These systems will typically generate between about $300 and $2500 worth or electricity per year.
Solar panels are expected to last between 30 and 50 years and so these systems will likely generate between $9000 and $120,000 worth of electricity over their life time in current dollars. This will vary widely though based on local electricity costs and may well increase greatly in the future if electricity rates rise.
Simple Hw Help?
Sorry Im Currently Braindead And I Cant Think Strait
So I Have To Do This Project Using An Island And Describing Four Renewable Energy Sources That Can Be Found Or Set Up On The Island. I Already Have The Two Easiest; Wind Farms And Solar Energy
I Have A Couple Of Questions That I Would Glad If Someone Answered.
1) The Direction The Windfarm Must Face Is Opposite Of The Direction The Wind Blows In The Summer. Why Is This? Is It Because Summer Winds Are Longer Then Winter Winds Or Something?
2) The Solar Panels Should Be Facing South In Order To Catch The Energy From The Sun For The Entire Day. Why Cant It Face North?
3) What Other Sources Can I Use? (Ex Tidal) And Explain How I Can Use Them
The Island Is A Slim Island In A Slight C Shape. It Looks Kinda Like A Fat String Bean Or Something. Help
Wind changes directions at different times of the year
It cannot face north because it would not catch all of the solar energy. They get more sunlight facing south.
Tidal energy would work. Hawaii is doing that now. You find the direction of the tidal current, and it works almost like a wind turbine, only it is for current. http://www.eia.doe.gov/kids/energyfacts/... This is a good well explained site with an illustration to help you see and understand it.
you can also use geothermal energy as a natural source. http://geothermal.marin.org/pwrheat.html... this site will help explain what it is.
What Makes Solar Panels So Expensive In The Us?
I Recently Got A Quote To Get Solar Panels For My House And It Was Over $30,000! I Want To Do My Part To Reduce Global Warming And Support Renewable Energy, But How Can The Average Person Do It When It Costs So Much? Even With Federal And State Rebates, Its Way Too Expensive? Did Anyone See 'Who Killed The Electric Car?'
Yes, they are too expensive - but if more people bought them, the cost would come down. Even 30K is a good investment, though, if you plan to stay in that house a few years. Let's look at some numbers:
In my neighborhood (cold climate here) my heat plus electric bill averages about $350/month (about $4200/year.) Assuming I switch to electric heat, and I can provide for all of my energy needs from the panels, they would pay for themselves in about 7 years.
How much better would this be if you drove an electric car? (I drive one.) The average driver puts about 15,000 miles/year on his car. The average car gets 18mpg. At $2.50/gallon, that driver spends $2083/year on gasoline. And this number, along with the price of gasoline, keeps going up.
Total cost savings: $6283 per year. So those $30,000 panels pay for themselves in about 4.77 years. If the price of gas and utilities keep going up (they will), you'll be paid off even faster.
How Do Pv Cells Convert Radiant Energy Into Electricity.?
Im Doing A Science Final And I Need To Know How Pv Cells Convert Radiant Energy Into Electricity. Thanks.
1. Photons in sunlight hit the solar panel and are absorbed by semiconducting materials, such as silicon.
2. Electrons (negatively charged) are knocked loose from their atoms, allowing them to flow through the material to produce electricity. The complementary positive charges that are also created (like bubbles) are called holes and flow in the direction opposite of the electrons in a silicon solar panel.
3. An array of solar panels converts solar energy into a usable amount of direct current (DC) electricity.
