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 utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioner, washing clothing, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, many home owners discover that the benefit, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably lower or even eliminate your electrical expenses
Whether you're a house owner, company, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can comprise a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.
#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power expense cost savings, the average American homeowner settles their solar panel system in 7 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 previous 10 years, residential electrical energy prices have actually increased by approximately three percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and secure against unpredictable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're an organisation or property owner with fluctuating cash flow, going solar likewise assists you much better projection and manage your costs.
#4 Increase your house value
Multiple studies have actually found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater property worths and offer quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider 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 solar 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 accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate changes in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is expected to continue. Since 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 Secure the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A normal property photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are necessary parts of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that select to operate properly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of consumer purchasing decisions, creating goodwill and improving service results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Many house owners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
As of 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 infamous for their changing and unreliable electrical power prices. There is plainly an upward trend.
With solar panels and easy math, we can compute how much electrical energy will be produced, and most notably, at what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Are The Advantages Of Solar Energy?
There are many advantages of solar energy. First of all it is easily available and we can be sure that when we use it we are not depleting the energy source and moreover it
does not create any toxic things or pollute the environment.
However there are certain
things to look for first is the availability of sun light if the day times are short as in
winter the energy we get is less and the other thing is that we need a conventional battery to store the electricity which is not so green
Why Is It Good For The Environment To Invest In Renewable Resources?
I presume you're talking about solar and wind power, and not biomass like wood and corn (used for ethanol)? You don't say specifically, so we have to guess.
You also make the presumption that investing in renewable resources are "good for the environment." The statement or presumption posed as a question becomes a logical fallacy. Ethanol has not proved to be "good for the environment", for example. Although biomass in the form of wood once supplied 90 percent of U.S. energy needs, all renewable energy sources combined supplied only about 8 percent of in 2009. That's a good start, but barely noticeable as being "good for the economy."
What is it exactly that you don't understand? Or what is it specifically, that you would like to ask? I could guess all day and still not get it. Isn't it perfectly clear that wind and solar energy are cleaner and more environment friendly than burning fossil fuels and polluting the atmosphere and digging up the earth?
Portable Air Conditioner Unit In Arizona.?
Alright Here Are The Details. I Live In A One Story House With 4 Bed Rooms. ( We Converted Our Garage Into A Game Room.) As Im Sure You Know By The Title You Can Already Guess Air Condition In The Summer Time Here Costs For The Majority Of The Electric Bill. My Question However Is. Would It Be Cost Efficient To Purchase A Portable Air Conitioner ( Or Two. Average Which Cover 300 Sq Ft. A Unit) And Hook Them Up Directly To A Off The Grid Solar Panel System. Wheither It Be Battery Back Up Running The Unit Every Other Day Or Buying Enough Solar Panels To Run The Air Conditioners Directly.
You know, it's interesting..
Air conditioners don't really make the air cold as people think.
They remove the heat from the air before the fan blows it inside.
And they are making A/C units more and more efficient all the time.
Some of them run on less power than you think.
But a solar generated power system can be pretty pricey.
Then you might have days in a row when it's overcast, sunless, and hence, no power.
Have you considered putting that money into better insulation and weatherstripping?
That might be more cost-effective.
I don't know how well you insulated when you converted, but there's always more you can do.
Such as replacing regular doors with insulated fiberglass ones.
Or planting shade trees on that side of the house...
There's literally thousands of things you can do.
Sometimes, you can even get a reduction on your bill from your electricity provider.
All I'm saying is- check out all your options before you go and spend all that money on something that might or might not pay off.
Energy Of The Future Is The Sun.. Why?
The sun is powered by fusion energy or you could be asking about solar which would be the plentiful radiation that can be easily collected and as methods improve it'll become cheaper.
Here is my answer to a similar post.
Yes. Theoretically, it is the cleanest and greatest lasting power source. Fusion energy- the source of energy that powers our sun- is created from the energy when 2 protons or H+ ions collide and cause a chain reaction releasing helium and a lot of heat which would then be used to heat water and then turn turbines. At the moment it is not a feasible power source as it takes more energy to maintain the conditions needed for fusion (insane heat / pressure) but it is slowly being improved with new methods. For example using magnetism to suspend plasma and facilitate the reaction.
We have achieved fusion in the form of H-bombs and experiments but we cannot stabilize the chain reaction or control the immense energy released.
The only downside to fusion is that they would need a lot of safety measures to make sure a melt down doesn't occur and resulting in a local H-bomb.
Why Don'T We Use Solar Enfrgy As A Major Source Of Energy For Our Cars,Homes,And Factories?
Solar Energy Is The Best Enviromentally Friendly Source Of Energy.We Must Use It Primarily Replacing Other Sousces.But We Are Not Using It Widely In Cars,Homes,Factories.Why?
Unlike oil, gas, or coal, solar power recieves very little in the way of government subsidies. this means that each solar project must obtain funding individually. The government is worried about getting big sources of power online, so only big solar projects get built. Unfortunately, solar power is not ideal for big projects. It's best use would be in the form of small projects, such as on people's houses, or on top of buildings that use power. The government doesn't see much point in such small-scale projects, so individuals end up footing the bill for these. Unfortunately, it can be as much as 30 years before they begin to see a return in their investment. A lot of people don't stay in the same house that long, so it is not worth it for them to install solar panels. Others simply don't have the free money available to spend on enough solar panels to make much difference. Still others believe solar power is not efficient enough to actually make a difference, or fear that in the time it takes for them to see a profit on their purchase, the panels will have gotten damaged.
