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 resident to use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothes, viewing TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, lots of home owners find that the convenience, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Leading Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically reduce and even remove your electrical bills
Whether you're a homeowner, business, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can make up a large part of your month-to-month costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your energy bills and you'll still conserve a lot of money.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the finest ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power costs cost savings, the average American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, property electricity rates have increased by approximately three percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and protect against unforeseeable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a business or house owner with changing money flow, going solar likewise helps you better forecast and manage your expenses.
#4 Boost your house value
Several research studies have actually discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater home worths and offer quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key part of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate variations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A typical domestic photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are important elements of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that opt to run responsibly. Services are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of customer acquiring choices, producing goodwill and improving company results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Numerous house owners pick to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This means that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The utility business are infamous for their fluctuating and undependable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can compute just how much electrical power will be generated, and most importantly, at what rate, for at least 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

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
To Get Into Renewable Energy, What Is The Best Degree For Me To Study?
Is It Better To Study 'Green Energy Technology' At Leicester Uni, Or Study An Engineering Degree, Probably Electrical Eng?
Or If There Are Any Other Courses You Suggest....? And Why?
Or Is There Any Point Wanting To Go Into The Renewable Energy Sector? Will We Ever Actually Turn To Green Energies? Or Will Big Oil/Gas/Nuclear Companies Rule What We Do, And Not Allow Us To Move Forward In A Green Way?
If you REALLY want to help out the renewable energy sector, become a top-notch electrical engineer. Then, revolutionize our capacitor technology.
That is one of main things keeping renewables as a second-tier resource. With wind farms and solar stations especially, our present capacitor capabilities will forbid them from ever becoming anything more than an aid. They will NEVER be able to replace all the coal/oil/gas/nuclear... unless you go out and design us some rockstar capacitors. Inefficient energy storage is the killer.
And those companies don't "rule what we do." C'mon now. Look at what renewables are actually capable of with our present technology. They are not a fantastic cure-alls.
Besides, power companies are diversifying their sources more and more everyday. GE and AREVA are huge energy players, and both are integrating renewables into the designs. Our energy sources will have to play nice with each other until our technology progresses further. It's not all or nothing.
How Do Solar Wind Affect Electrical Circuits? ?
The solar winds are basically a large amount of plasma, or ionized gas, filled with highly-energized protons and electrons. They can be pretty fast at times; a solar event in 2005 launched protons at Earth so energetic that they got here in only about 23 minutes, meaning they were going at roughly one third the speed of light. Most of these, however, take about 24 to 48 hours to reach us. When they reach the Earth they disturb its magnetosphere, causing it to warp and deform. If you've take a Physics class then you know that moving magnetic fields produce electrical current. Even in electronic equipment that isn't plugged in, a strong enough magnetic field will induce a current. Geomagnetic storms are strong enough to disrupt satellites and overload power lines and electronics on Earth through this mechanism. They also cause the Aurora Borealis by exciting various elements in Earth's upper atmosphere.
EDIT: True, only EM radiation effects electronic equipment. But the protons and electrons from solar winds are moving charged particles, meaning they produce a magnetic field as well. So they can also effect equipment on the ISS. Atoms, on the other hand, have nothing to do with this unless they are ionized, because that means they would have a charge and, therefore, a magnetic field.
As for wavelength, the shorter the wavelength the more energy there is. Assuming more energy means a stronger magnetic field then, therefore, there will be more electronic disruption.
Lastly, I do not believe this has anything to do with the Photoelectric Effect.
If Solar Energy Is Really The Way Of The Future, Why Does The Government Need To Subsidize It?
The real problem is the Democrats at all levels think they're technically astute and want to play with other people's money, while kicking back some to themselves, of course.
Why Solar Energy Is Not Used In Africa?
How Could They Develop It?
I'm answering this from Botswana using a small solar panel(150 USD), and satellite internet. The small panel is enough to power 5 energy saving bulbs, laptop, and charge cell phone for 5 or so hours per day (We do have cellphones in Africa). Its used small scale everywhere i work in A. but like the rest of the world very few big projects. Capital outlay,and storing the energy are challenges. The 12 V lead/acid battery I'm using is not a good answer for big projects, not green either
Solar Energy (Thermal And Photo Voltaic) Differences Between The Conditions In North And South Europe?
Solar Energy (Thermal And Photovoltaic) Diferences Between The Conditions In North And South Europe
I Need To Do Some Report About The Differences Between The Conditions For North And South Europe To Use The Solar Energy.
All Data, Like The Energy At Places, The Advantages, Everything Is Welcome.
Send Me Links, Or Other Things.
There are maps to show how much solar energy is available on average per day for the planet. Solar energy return is also dependent on tracking the sun. Tracking can be applied on solar thermal and photovoltaic. Solar thermal is more economical when scaled up in MW. Solar thermal can also provide night time energy using salt ponds for heat storage.
