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 home owners to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothes, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, lots of homeowners discover that the convenience, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.
Leading Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly reduce and even eliminate your electric expenses
Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can make up a big part of your monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your energy bills and you'll still save a great deal of loan.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power expense savings, the typical American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the past ten years, domestic electricity prices have actually increased by an average of 3 percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure versus unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a business or homeowner with ever-changing capital, going solar also assists you much better forecast and handle your costs.
#4 Increase your property worth
Numerous studies have found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater home worths and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost 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 country from rate variations in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar market included 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 country. This growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent method to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A common property photovoltaic panel system will remove three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are essential elements of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that opt to operate responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of consumer acquiring choices, creating goodwill and enhancing organisation results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Lots of homeowners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This means that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility business are notorious for their varying and undependable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and simple math, we can determine what does it cost? electrical power will be created, and most notably, at exactly what price, 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
How Is Solar Energy Harnessed (Collected) ?
You can read about solar energy and how it is created and used here:
Which Energy Sources Will Still Be Available When You Are 70?
Solar, geo-thermal, wind, hydro, various fossil fuels, nuclear (fission and hopefully fusion by then), bio-waste fuels.
How Many Solar Panels Do I Need To Run A Pump?
I Plan To Buy Solar Panels Of The Following Configuration:
Sun Force 39110 / 123 Watt - 7 Amps
To Run Through An Inverter, To Produce The 110V I Need To Run The Pump During The Day.
The Pump Is 110V / 7.5 Amps / 0.5 Hp
My Question Is, How Many Solar Panels Would I Need To Run The Pump?
Are you sure you want those panels? It would probably be more cost-effective to get higher-wattage panels. From those specs, it sounds like you need about 800 watts of panels. That's 4 200-watt panels.
I would skip the inverter, and look for a pump that runs off DC. In fact, many AC motors will run off DC, although that's a trial-and-error sort of thing that no one will guarantee. Typically you would lower the voltage input to do so, so a 110-volt AC induction motor would run off maybe 70-80 volts DC, to avoid burning out the motor. But if you get a pump rated for DC, then you'll certainly have something that works right.
What Is A Distributed Resource?
What Is A Distributed Resource (In Terms Of The Environment) Vs A Point Source? I Know Biomass Is A Distributed Resource But What Is The Definition Of &Quot;Distributed Resource&Quot;?
Distributed resource would be an energy source that can be harnessed (effectively) in almost all corners of the world, and doesn't need special conditions to be cost-effective (for instance solar energy is only costs effective in areas with plenty of sun, wind energy in areas with plenty of wind, etc, while biomass, in its many forms, can be successfully harnessed in almost all parts of the world.
What Do You Think Of The Northern Cape?
What'S Your View Of The Northern Cape, With Regards To It'S People It'S Culture, And It'S Three Big Towns\Cities Kimberley,Kuruman And Upington Which Have More That Half The Northern Cape 'S Population And What Do You Think Is The Province'S Future And It'S Future Role In South Africa
I live in the Northern Cape, though not in any of the "big 3" cities.
Its anything but hot & dusty now - in fact it has been raining at least twice a week for months!
It will always have a low population.
Agriculture is the driver of the economy while mining is slowly becoming less significant as the mines close down when they are "mined out". I think it could become a major contributor to renewable energy in future - wind farms and solar energy - perhaps nuclear along the coast.
Karoo villages are becoming quite popular as "getaway" destinations for city folks from particularly the Western Cape - old cottages sell for high prices to these "city refugees".
