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 house owners to use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning system, cleaning clothes, viewing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, many property owners find that the convenience, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Leading Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly minimize or perhaps remove your electrical bills
Whether you're a house owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can make up a big portion of your month-to-month expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate complimentary 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 energy costs and you'll still save a lot of loan.
#2 Make a terrific return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the finest methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy costs savings, the average American homeowner settles their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, residential electrical power prices have gone up by an average of 3 percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a business or homeowner with rising and falling capital, going solar also helps you better projection and handle your costs.
#4 Boost your home worth
Numerous studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater home values and offer 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 homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for homes geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
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 produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate changes in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs 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. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect 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 significantly reduce that number. A typical domestic photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are very important parts of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding organisations that opt to operate responsibly. Companies are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of customer getting choices, creating goodwill and enhancing business 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 homeowners decide to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility companies are well-known for their fluctuating and undependable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward trend.
With solar panels and easy math, we can determine just how much electricity will be generated, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next 20 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

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
Why Is Wind Power A Sustainable Form Of Enery?
Need Some Help For An Assignment.
2 Examples Of Where Wind Power Is Used
How Does This Form Of Energy Impact On People'S Live??
wind is a sustainable power of energy.
Wind power is the conversion of wind energy into a useful form of energy, such as using wind turbines to make electricity, wind mills for mechanical power, wind pumps for pumping water or drainage, or sails to propel ships.
At the end of 2009, worldwide nameplate capacity of wind-powered generators was 159.2 gigawatts (GW). Energy production was 340 TWh, which is about 2% of worldwide electricity usage; and has doubled in the past three years. Several countries have achieved relatively high levels of wind power penetration, such as 20% of stationary electricity production in Denmark, 14% in Ireland and Portugal, 11% in Spain, and 8% in Germany in 2009. As of May 2009, 80 countries around the world are using wind power on a commercial basis.
Large-scale wind farms are connected to the electric power transmission network; smaller facilities are used to provide electricity to isolated locations. Utility companies increasingly buy back surplus electricity produced by small domestic turbines. Wind energy, as an alternative to fossil fuels, is plentiful, renewable, widely distributed, clean, and produces no greenhouse gas emissions during operation. However, the construction of wind farms is not universally welcomed because of their visual impact but any effects on the environment are generally among the least problematic of any power source.
The intermittency of wind seldom creates problems when using wind power to supply a low proportion of total demand, but as the proportion rises, increased costs, a need to upgrade the grid, and a lowered ability to supplant conventional production may occur. Power management techniques such as exporting and importing power to neighboring areas or reducing demand when wind production is low, can mitigate these problems.
Sustainable energy is the provision of energy that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. Sustainable energy sources are most often regarded as including all renewable energy sources, such as hydroelectricity, solar energy, wind energy, wave power, geothermal energy, bioenergy, and tidal power. It usually also includes technologies that improve energy efficiency.
So yes, wind energy is pretty sustainable.
How Solar Energy Can Be Used Most Effectively In India ?
In rural sector. In remote areas where it is uneconomical to pull distribution line and install a transformer, solar power will be definitely economical as well as useful.
Another area is highways - automated telephonebooths using solar power.
Solar power plants can be installed in desert areas of Thar where sunlight and land have no limits.
Providing telecom in rural areas using setellite and solar power will make stand alone units.
How Is Solar Energy Produced?
Give Me All The Details.
I hope I can give you a decent answer.
There are different forms of solar power: "solar thermal" and "solar photovoltaic".
Solar thermal involves the sun directly heating a fluid, say air or water, which is then used directly, i.e. to heat a house or hot water for a shower.
Solar photovoltaic, or "PV", as mentioned above, uses the sunlight itself. The light hits a PV panel made of semiconductors, which frees electrons which form a current. This is how we get electricity directly from sunlight. The brighter the light, the more power we get from this technology. It evens works when it's cloudy.
I talk about this more at my site, as http://www.howtopowertheworld.com/solar-power.html
I hope this helps
EDIT: I just realised I said pretty much the same thing on another of your questions! I didn't realise you were the same person. I think this is the better of the two, though :P
Which Alternative Energy Source Do You Think Is Most Practical?
There Are Many, Many, Alternative Energy Sources Solar, Hydro-Electric, Wind, Electricity, Bio-Fuels And Such, Geo-Thermal, Nuclear, And The List Could Go On For A Long, Long Time, But Which Energy Source Do You Think Is The Most Practical? Like In The Future, Which Energy Sources Will Be Used.
I Think Solar Energy Is A Great Idea, And That We Have Only Scratched The Surface Of What It Could Do For Us. However, As Of Now Solar Energy Has Some Flaws, For Example You Could Use Solar Energy In California Easily Because It Is Sunny For Most Of The Year, But In States Like Oregon/Washington Where It Rains A Lot, You Couldn't Use It As Efficiently.
I Don't Know Why, But I Have Never Been A Big Fan On Hydro-Electric Power... I Mean, I Know Dams Can Produce Enough Power To Give Energy To Entire Cities, But There Is Always The Chance Of The Dam Breaking, If You've Happened To Watch A Special About Dams, You Might Have Heard That Many Dams That Have Been Inspected Are Classified As Not Safe... I Dunno... Lots Of People Like Hydro-Electric, It
Just Never Seemed To Turn Me On..
Wind... Lots Of People Like Wind Power.... I Mean, It, Out Of All The Energy Sources Is Probably The Cleanest... Its Just That, They Don't Generate A Tremendous Amount Of Power As Of Now At Least...
Electricity Is My Favorite, Thus I'd Give A Biased Explanation Favoring It, So I Won't Even Bother.
Bio Fuels... The Only Problem That I Really Have Is, What If There Is A Blizzard Or Drought How Are You Going To Get Your Bio Fuel?
Like Solar, I Think Geo-Thermal Could Be Used To Generate More Energy Than It Does, But I Have Always Thought It As.. I Don't Know How To Explain It... Sort Of An Old Idea... I Know Lots Of People Use It To Heat There Homes But I Think It Can Be Reinvented To Be Greater Than It Is.
So, Which Source Do You Think Is The Answer? Or Do You Think A Combination Of Some Of The Energy Sources Will Be The Future. Or Do You Think We Will Find A New Source Of Energy In The Future That Will Surpass All The Current Forms, Maybe From Space Or Something. Or Do You Think We Won't Survive To Find Out... So Yeah... What Do You Think?
I think you have to look at the particular climate and environment you live in, e.g. hours of sunlight, amount of wind, closeness to a suitable river system, closeness to the ocean, availability of hot-rocks and geothermal activity. All of these natural assets can be used to provide power in a clean and economical way. I think the best sources of "Green Power" are Hot-rocks/Geothermal sites and wave power as they seem to use the least use of expensive technology to utilise them. I think they would also leave the smallest "footprint" on our precious environment.
What Other Energy Sources Other Than Fossil Fules That Can Be Nonpollutable?
Other Than &Quot;Hydorelectri Energy&Quot; &Quot;Air Energy&Quot; And &Quot;Underwater Energy&Quot;
Solar energy, which can be used in two ways, as Solar Thermal energy which uses the heat of the Sun, or Solar Photovoltaic energy which uses the Sun's light.
You may also have a number of different types of Marine energy such as Tidal Energy, Wave Energy, and Deep Water Heat Pumps which rely on the temperature gradient between warm surface water and colder deep water.
There is also a method of extracting energy from the movement of mountain and ice-cap glaciers.
Finally there are several types of Geo-Thermal Energy, which use the internal heat of the Earth in areas where there are volcanoes, geysers, hydro-thermal vents, hot springs and hot mud pools.
