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 air conditioning system, washing clothes, viewing TV, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, lots of residents find that the convenience, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably minimize or even eliminate your electric bills
Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can comprise a large portion of your monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate 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 lower your utility expenses and you'll still save a great deal of loan.
#2 Earn a fantastic return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy costs cost savings, the average American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against increasing energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the past 10 years, domestic electricity prices have gone up by approximately three percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and secure against unpredictable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a business or house owner with rising and falling money flow, going solar also assists you better forecast and manage your expenses.
#4 Boost your residential or commercial property value
Several studies have actually found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes 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 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential element of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A typical domestic photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are necessary components of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that decide to run responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of customer buying decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Numerous property owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
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 notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electricity rates. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and basic math, we can determine how much electrical energy will be generated, and most significantly, at exactly 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
Photons And Electrons?
Electric Energy Can Turn Into Light Energy, The Resistance In The Copper Wire, The Atoms Vibrating To Heat Up The Filament, Therefore Giving Of Light Energy (Light Bulb). So I'Ve Been Told The Difference Between Electricity And Light Is Electricity Is Made Up Of Electrons And Light Photons (I Know My Language May Not Be Correctly Describing) But If Electricity Can Turning Into Light Energy, Can Light Energy Turn Into Electricity - If So From A Physics Perspective (Without Getting Too Complicated) How Can This Happen?
"can light energy turn into electricity", yes that is a solar cell or photocell.
The solar cell works in three steps:
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, causing an electric potential difference. Current starts flowing through the material to cancel the potential and this electricity is captured. Due to the special composition of solar cells, the electrons are only allowed to move in a single direction.
3. An array of solar cells converts solar energy into a usable amount of direct current (DC) electricity.
I Need Help On This Antarctica Project!?
I Need Facts On: Humans, Animals And Krill. The Assignment Question Is 'Should Antarctica Be Exploited For Its Resources Or Conserved For Future Generations?' I Need Facts And Figures Too. Need The Looooooong Answer Asap. Detail Too! Thanks:) Byebye:)
Many people believe that Antarctica is a place of unlimited resource wealth. But the harsh climate, short work season, and thick ice make the recovery of these resources very difficult. The economic value of a resource is determined by the current market value of the resource, the cost of moving
the resource to where it is needed, and the cost of moving equipment and workers to recover the resource. The technology to remove and transport mineral resources has not yet been developed but as supplies worldwide are depleted, it will become more cost effective.
There are two opposing views about the feasibility of resource recovery in Antarctica. One side is that by the time it is feasible to use an Antarctica resource, alternative sources will exist. Instead of using petroleum for energy there will be development of fusion reactors, solar, or geothermal energy. The other view is that increasing economic pressure will force mineral and petroleum exploration into more and more remote regions as resources are gradually depleted in other lands.
Debating--Antarctica Should Be Opened Up For Resource Exploitation:
This debate is whether Antartica's resources should be exploited (as is currently with fishing and tourism) or should not even these be exploited. The Proposition model is to disregard the Antartic Treaty (and its claims) and instead establish Antartica as a common heritage of mankind (as is the position of the African Union) and to allow companies to exploit the resources through call for bids (that will take into consideration environmemental factors) to the United Nations and with the majority of the earnings being distributed to all of the United Nations members equally, also with equal opportunities to acquire the resources depending on their population and/or exceptional needs (such as a country with drought given priority over potable water). Proposition needs to prove that allowing the exploitation of Antartica will lead to greater benefits to humankind and it is fair to exploit it.
Before anything we would first like to point out that this debate is not limited to the two positions of: exploiting Antarctica’s resources vs. banning every form of human activity on Antarctica. Going over the fact that the Proposition has provided virtually no definitions for the key words such as “resource” and “exploitation”, the spirit and wording—should be opened up—of the debate calls for arguments regarding expanding current exploitation. Therefore the Opposition’s stance in today’s debate is that while we will allow activities such as research and tourism, we will ban all exploitation of physical resources, such as fish, oil, coal etc. on the Antarctic continent.
The problem with Proposition is that they are misunderstanding the problem at hand and therefore are providing a misguided solution. They are also being extremely naïve in believing that UN will take care of everything. While handing over the burden by saying that UN will do this is quite tempting, we must realize that UN is not as omnipotent as it seems at first glance. Finally the Proposition is understating the implications of a very serious aspect in our lives: ecological protection.
