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 daily life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothes, seeing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are substantial, lots of residents discover that the benefit, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically lower and even eliminate your electrical costs
Whether you're a homeowner, company, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can make up a large part of your month-to-month expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your utility bills and you'll still save a great deal of cash.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power bill savings, the typical American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the previous 10 years, property electrical energy prices have gone up by approximately 3 percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're a service or homeowner with changing cash circulation, going solar also helps you better forecast and manage your expenditures.
#4 Increase your residential or commercial property worth
Several research studies have actually discovered that houses 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 consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need for properties geared up 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 element of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost changes in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a great method 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 residential solar panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are very important elements of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that decide to run properly. Services are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of customer getting decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing service results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Many homeowners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy 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 utility business are notorious for their fluctuating and unreliable electricity prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can compute just how much electrical power will be created, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for at least 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

Frequently Asked Questions
Would Hydroelectric Power Be A Good Energy Source For Chicago? Why Or Why Not ?
My Other Choices For An Energy Source For Chicago Are Wind Energy, Solar Energy, Biomass Energy, Fossil Fuels, Geothermal Energy, And Nuclear Power But I Have To Have Good Reasons On Why I Chose The Energy Source And It Was To Be Realistic As Well.
hydro electric power is a clean and safe power source. As I understand it, the problem is finding suitable large rivers and dams with a large enough water drop for generating the power.
How Can Solar Energy Be Converted To Electrical Energy?
I Am Thinking Of Storing The Solar Energy For Future Use At Home And Outdoors.Is It Necessary That The Energy We Derive From The Sun Thru Panels Be Put Into Use As Soon As We Get Or It Could Be Stored In Someplace For Future Use Like For Home Appliances And Gadgets .Instead Of Using Lpg Or Hydro Electricity Which Has No Guarantee Of Supply
Solar energy can be converted into Electrical Energy by using Photo-volatic cells/Solar panels. Till now solar energy is stored in batteries. But if u can generate enough heatfrom the solar energy u can store them using the property Latent Heat of Fusion.
What Are Some Inherencies On Solar Energy?
Hello, I Am In A Debate Class And I Need Some Inherencies On Solar Energy Please, Thanks
Inherency-Current administration opposes R+D now
"Top energy official extols Colorado based federal lab" Nov 8 2007
Fact: NREL has laid off 32 employees and suffered a $28 million shortfall (National Renewable Energy Lab) So currently understaffed and underfunded national labs for renewable energy research.
Inherency-tax credits for renewable energy have fallen prey to cost cutting related to the Iraq war
"Foster: Dems pushing for renewable energy," March 29, 2008 UPI
There is an effort underway to extend and renew tax cuts supporting the production and use of renewable energy. The tax cuts for renewable energy have little chance of passing due to the costs of the Iraq war. (how ironic is that, LOL)
These two inherencies prove that the US is not currently doing enough to support research and development of renewable energy such as solar, and also not extending tax credits to promote development and purchase of renewable energy such as solar.
Also, look out your window. How many solar panels do you see? There is an inherency right there.
What Is Solar Energy And What Does It Have To Do With?
Solar energy is energy that comes from the Sun. It is a good energy source to pursue because it is renewable. No matter how much we use, it doesn't reduce the amount of energy available.
How Long Before We Run Out Of Oil And Natural Gas?
First, we will never extract all the oil and natural gas that that has currently been discovered. About 85% of the original gas in place can be recovered from a gas reservoir leaving about 15% residual gas. A reasonable recovery factor for an oil reservoir is about 30%. That means that 70% of the original oil in place remains in the reservoir at the end of primary recovery. Secondary recovery techniques such as waterflooding the reservoir after primary depletion will produce additional oil, but not all of what remains. Therefore, even known fields won’t be entirely depleted.
Second, even in mature, heavily explored petroleum basins, we are unlikely to discover all of the hydrocarbon reservoirs that exist. Some areas tend to have reservoirs that are too small or too complicated to favor commercial success from exploratory drilling. Exploration economics will have to improve significantly before much effort can be justified in these areas.
Also there are geographic areas that are politically sensitive, resulting in restricted exploration. In the USA, these include areas off the east & west coasts, offshore Florida, the eastern Gulf of Mexico and the 1002 multi-use area of ANWR. It will require significant shortages and high petroleum prices to influence the public and elected politicians to open these areas to exploration and production.
To estimate how much producible hydrocarbon reserves exist, you need to know two things. First you need to be able to estimate the probability distribution of undiscovered fields remaining. Second, you need to be able to estimate the value of the produced products and the finding and extraction costs. These are just estimates, they will never be known with certainty. There is considerable variation is the parameters that influence the estimation of commercial reserve calculations. As the world economies heat up, China and India for example, began to compete with the United States and Europe for petroleum products. The increase in demand drives up prices. This becomes an incentive for increased exploration because marginal prospects will now exceed economic thresholds and some of them will subsequently be drilled. However, there is a dampening impact the quickly begins to follow the increase in drilling. Costs for drilling rigs, geophysical crews acquiring seismic and potential field data, land lease royalties and bonuses all begin to increase rapidly. This begins to make marginally commercial prospects less attractive again. Thus, estimating commercial reserves is like shooting at a moving target.
Finally, there is increasing competition from other energy sources. Wind and solar energy sources will undoubtedly increase their market share in the future. It is interesting that nuclear energy is also getting some press because it produces no CO2 waste products. These and other competitors to petroleum will replace petroleum consumption as they become effective cost competitors in the future. This will happen long before all extractable hydrocarbons have been produced.
