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 conditioner, cleaning clothes, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, lots of property owners find that the benefit, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.
Leading Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably decrease or perhaps remove your electric costs
Whether you're a property owner, service, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a big portion of your regular monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity bill cost savings, the average American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical energy prices have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unforeseeable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a service or property owner with changing capital, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and handle your costs.
#4 Increase your home or business value
Numerous research studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher home values and offer quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes 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 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key element of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar market added 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 country. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend 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 terrific method to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A normal domestic photovoltaic panel system will remove three to 4 heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are necessary parts of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that opt to run properly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of consumer buying decisions, creating goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Numerous house owners opt to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility 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 changing and unreliable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can determine how much electrical power will be generated, and most notably, at what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired 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
What Do We Use Energy For(Non And Renewable)?
Can You Tell Me What We Use Energy For? For Example We Use It For Electricty And Gas What Else. Also How Is Non Renewable And Renewable Energy Bad For Enevironment. And Last What Are Some Alternatives We Can Use? Thank You!
Everything. Energy doesn't mean what you think it does. Energy is the ability of a physical system to do work on another physical system.
So, literally, everything. Electricity is used to make circuits, and since electricity must travel in certain paths, from positive to negative (I think. it could be the other way. Sorry, I switch things around in my head all the time.) you can make it do things on the way. (this is a DRASTIC oversimplificaiton.)
Non-renewable energy is energy that comes from things like oil or nuclear power, which has been converted ultimately into heat and is thus useless. Renewable energy is stuff like wind or solar or timber, that can be (at least in theory ) propagated forever.
Can Someone Please, Please Explain How Solar Energy Is Transmitted,?
Like Sum It Up Please And Make It Easy To Understand. I Have A Test On Monday But I Was Away For The Lesson, Please No Websites Just A Summary:) Thank You And Sorry For The Trouble
Ps Please Make It Easy To Understand As I Am Only In Grade 7:)
Photons [what light is made of] are emitted from the Sun's nuclear fusion [Hydrogen being burned [fused] into helium. The photons from the sun transfer their energy by exciting atoms in an object the light comes in contact with.
How Does It Work?
What Is It Used For?
What Are Positives About Solar Energy?
What Are Negatives About Solar Energy?
how does it work?
It works by converting light energy into usable electrical energy. There is no other by-product.
what is it used for?
Powering our home, businesses, some cars, and countless science projects.
what are positives about solar energy?
endless* supply (*let's put it this way, if there was no more sun, we wouldn't be around to care)
what are negatives about solar energy?
None, really, but the only legitimate two I can think of are:
Can only be harvested half of the day (morning till twilight)
Relatively expensive for the solar panels, but hopefully cost will come down soon.
To Run 1 Ton Air Conditioner With 5000 Watts Inverter?
How Many Batteries Needed If I Want It To Run At Least 6 To 8 Hrs
I Am Welling To Buy 5000 Watt Inverter. It Is 12 Volt Input And 220 Volt Output With 5000 Watts Continues Power Supply.
One ton air conditioner = 3.516 KW output = 12,000 BTU/hr in british units
The inverter you specified indicated 90% efficiency.
Air conditioners in this range use approximately 1000watts = 1000 Volt Amperes (Use actual current drawn by your unit in calculation)
For example, this is a 0.97 Ton unit that draws 1056 watts:
At 12 Volts that means the constant current draw would be
(1000VA/12Volts) / 0.9 efficiency = 92.6A
To run for 8 hours you would need a MINIMUM of
92.6A x 8 hours = 740.8 Ampere hours of capacity.
This is of course not accounting for heat losses in the cabling, drop off in capacity of the batteries, etc.
This would mean at least 8 of the 33kg batteries shown at the bottom of this page (each is 100AH) wired in parallel:
Make sure to check the discharge rate for the battery rating. In this case the 100AH rate is for 20 hours. Since we are exceeding this discharge rate, we will not get the full 100AH per battery. AGM(Absorbed Glas Mat) batteries will be better in this regard.
Unless you are using Deep Cycle batteries most battery manufacturers recommend not discharging a Lead Acid cell below 50%. If so, you should allow for this by doubling the number of batteries.
It is also important to distinguish cooling capacity from power usage. The AC unit acts as a pump to move energy from the inside of the room to the outside. It can move 12,000 BTU/HR (or 3516 watts continuous) of energy from the inside of the building to the outside but only draws about 1000 watts (depending on the SEER of the unit).
The above poster did not understand this distinction.

What Happens To Solar Energy?
What do you mean what happen to it? If you mean why we don't have more things using solar energy then it's because we haven't invented anything that is worth the cost. The solar panels doesn't absorb enough to let you run everything with them. And you need to produce a lot to be able to absorb a little. So it's not worth it.
Some of it gets absorbed by the trees and algea to make their food while most becomes heat and a little bit of little.
