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 everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothes, enjoying TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing 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 significant, numerous homeowners discover that the convenience, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly reduce and even remove your electrical expenses
Whether you're a property owner, service, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can comprise a big portion of your regular monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll generate totally free 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 energy costs and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the finest methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity expense savings, the typical American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the past 10 years, property electricity costs have increased by approximately 3 percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and protect against unpredictable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a company or house owner with fluctuating capital, going solar also assists you better forecast and manage your expenditures.
#4 Boost your home or business value
Several studies have discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater home values and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, need for homes geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key part of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, 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 growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A typical domestic solar panel system will get rid of three 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 corporate social obligation are necessary elements of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding organisations that decide to run properly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are an effective driver of consumer purchasing choices, producing goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Many homeowners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility business are well-known for their varying and unreliable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward trend.
With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate how much electricity will be generated, and most importantly, at what rate, for at least the next 20 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.
- 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

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
Can I Prove To You That Global Warming Is False?
The Theory Of Global Warming Became Popular By An Inconvenient Truth By Al Gore Which States That The Ozone Is Being Destroyed By Greenhouse Gases (Especially Co2) And That The Earth Will Heat Up And Ice Caps Will Melt And Cause Another Desert Era.
This Film Coincidentally Was Published Around The Time He Decided To Run For President.
But Oddly Enough, This Fact Of Greenhouse Gases Destroying The Ozone, Would Be Much As An Oxymoron, Since The Ozone Is A Layer In The Atmosphere That Holds Heat In (Which Would Be Like Saying That You Are Trying To Burn A Hole Through Fire).
Also If You Have Ever Taken A Coarse In Chemistry Then You Would Know That Co2 Not Only Is Much Smaller Then H20 Vapors But That H2o Vapors Consumes Way More Heat Than Co2 Emits, Making The Rise In Temperature Only Insignificantly A Rise Of About A Millionth Of A Degree Every Year.
The Air Too Is Still Much Cleaner Now Than It Was In The 1970'S And 1980'S Which (In The 1960'S People Had Their Own Backwards Theory Of Global Warming, Except Instead Of Ice Caps Melting, It Was More Of Another Ice Age Coming, If Any Of You Are Old Enough To Remember This)
Yet How Could We As American'S Go From One Extreme Theory Of New Ice Age To Another Global Warming, In Only About 20 Years?
There Are Many Scientists Now Opposing Global Warming Is False, You Could Even Google It If You Must.
But The Theory Of Global Warming Stays In The Media Of Course.
This Is Because Many Different Marketing Companies (Especially Cars) Uses This As Their Leading Campaign To Get People To Buy Their Very Expensive Products.
Although The Issue Of Another Fuel Source Is A Legitimate Issue Since Fossil Fuels Wont Be Around Forever, Especially With A Growing Population But I Digress.
If You Could Think Of Any Evidence That Supports The Theory Of Global Warming, Please Post It And I Will Do My Best To Try To Find A Counter Example.
well the whole solar system is warming up. happens every few thousand years. the sun's doing. I don't think we've caused too much, yet, but even if the truth be know that it is not real, is it not just common sense to go green? recycle, find alternative fuel sources that are renewable and don't let out any form of pollution, no nuclear war, etc. seems like the only reasonable & safe approach to me, and if all else fails it should shut Gore up, right?
What Are Some Ways Of Storing Energy For A Solar House?
Please Send Me Some Links And Does Anybody Know Of Other Cultures Who Use Unique Ways To Store Energy For Later Use?
As most solar energy in a house is heat then anything with large thermal mass
eg find some old night-storage radiators and use the "bricks from them as teh back wall (north) of the concervatory or as a solar wall http://www.cat.org.uk, used in Ladakh http://www.tew.org/development/solar.gre...
or fill oil barrels with water, or old tyres with earth http://www.earthship.org/learn/brighton-...
or loads of rubble - whatever you have available locally...
use a photovoltaic solar panel to drive a fan to blow air through the storage medium, and operate a heat exchangeer to get waste heat
traditional Moorish heat management used chimneys to create an air flow and draw fresh air in over a humidifying courtyard fountain...
What Is Solar Thermal Energy?
We Have A Report Tomorrow And I Need Help...Badly!
Thanks For Those Who Are Going To Give The Answer.
Solar thermal captures the heat from the sun. This can be used for:
solar cooking, http://www.altestore.com/store/Energy-Ef...
solar water heating, http://www.altestore.com/store/Solar-Wat...
solar air heating, http://www.altestore.com/store/Solar-Air...
solar pool heating, http://www.altestore.com/store/Solar-Pool-Heaters-and-Pumps/Unglazed-Solar-Pool-Heating/Guardian-Solar-Pool-Heating/Leveredge-Guardian-Pool-Heating-Package-200-SqFt/p7352/,
or heating your whole house, http://www.altestore.com/store/Solar-Water-Heaters/Climate-freezes-Closed-Loop-Systems/Combined-Solar-Hot-Water-Space-Heating/Heliodyne-Solar-Hot-Water-Space-Heat-1000-sqft/p6728/.
Solar thermal can also be used to generate electricity by concentrating the heat onto a tube with a fluid in it. The fluid heats so much it generates steam, which then powers a steam turbine, making electricity. http://www.nrel.gov/learning/re_csp.html
How Is Race Playing Such A Big Role In The Upcoming Elections?
I Do Watch The News And Yes I Have My Own Opinion On How Race And The Media Is Impacting The Upcoming Elections But What Do You Think? What Is Youre Biggest Concern ? What Key Issues Do You Believe Are Being Overlooked? Youre Comments Are Appreciated Thank You :]
I personally wouldn't care if Obama were black if it weren't such a big issue for everyone else - but by making it so everyone is going to be tiptoeing around the issue and trying very hard not to be called "Racist." That word can be the demise of a career - political or otherwise - if it sticks. Race is not so much an issue in this campaign as is Racism - Obama's carefully chosen words, "He will try to scare you ... did I mention that he's black?" really mean, "What is worse - the fact that I am black or that my opponent is a racist?" Very powerful political maneuver.
I have listened to talk radio on both sides of that proverbial "aisle" - NPR and "Sirius Left" on one side, and WABC, Fox News and "Sirius Patriot" on the other. Both engage in ridiculous jabs at "The Messiah" and "The Wrinkly White-Haired Guy" but it is the Left where I hear all the protestations about Race. They find Racisim where it does not exist, because Racism is a business in this country, and bears tremendous political clout. It is in their best interest to keep it alive.
After all the Race discussion and the "ad hominem" barbs, the Left-leaning radio hosts go back to their talking points of blaming Bush and the Republicans for everything; the Right-leaning radio hosts discuss the economy, the oil crisis, the war in Iraq and Foreign and Domestic policy. I listen and listen, but do not hear the same kind of discussion on the other stations.
Right or wrong, the forum is there - the discussions are open. Should we drill here in America? What do the American People want? Should we invest in Nuclear Energy? Solar Energy? All of the above? That's a question on the table. The answer? Turn off the lights and the cameras, and let's get outta here".
What about the war? The "Surge"? Did it work? Was it the right thing to do? Are things better in Iraq? Where do we go from here? McCain stands by his votes and his position, while Obama dodges the question and won't let himself be trapped into admitting that the so-called surge had a positive effect on the situation in Iraq.
In my own life, I cannot have a political discussion about issues with my Left-leaning friends without the discussion melting down to "Bush Sucks", which may or may not be true but, in terms of going forward, is irrelevant.
What Makes The Earth Tick?
I Have To Do A Paper On The Topic In The Title With The Focus On Energy Transfer That Drives Large-Scale Internal And External Global Processes On The Earth. However, I Do Not Understand What This Means. Can Anyone Please Shed Some Light On The Focus?
My Professor Gave Us Links On Some Articles On The Following, Are They Related To The Focus Of The Paper?:
* Sun'S Effect On The Atmosphere, The Water Cycle, Photosynthesis, Atmosphere, Ozone Layer And Formation Of The Solar System
* The Force Of Gravity
* Earth'S Interior And Its Effects On Plate Tectonics, Volcanism
To Those Who Tell Me To Do My Own Homework, I Will. I Just Need To Clarify What &Quot;Energy Transfer That Drives Large-Scale Internal And External Global Processes On The Earth&Quot; Means.
Major internal source of energy in the earth is heat from radioactive decay. Essentially this is nuclear energy keeping the earth hot.
Major external source of energy for the earth is solar energy, which is also produced by a nuclear reaction called the Sun.
The third source of energy, that is internal to the earth, is what is called remnant energy. This is the energy left over from the heat contained in the particles that consolidated to create the earth. The kinetic energy of their collision also added to this remnant energy.
Without the radioactive decay of elements in the earth, the planet would be a ball of frozen ice. Solar and remnant energy are not enough to keep this planet warm and drive plate tectonics.
