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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioner, cleaning clothing, seeing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while lowering 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 considerable, numerous residents discover that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically minimize and even eliminate your electrical bills
Whether you're a homeowner, service, or nonprofit, electricity costs can comprise a large part of your month-to-month costs. With a solar panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your energy costs and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power bill savings, the typical American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical power prices have increased by approximately three percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and secure versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're an organisation or property owner with fluctuating money flow, going solar likewise assists you much better projection and manage your costs.
#4 Increase your home worth
Multiple research studies have discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher home values and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, need for homes geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A typical property solar panel system will get rid of three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are necessary parts of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that pick to run responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of consumer acquiring decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing organisation results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Lots of house owners opt to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- 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 fluctuating and undependable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and simple math, we can determine just how much electrical power will be produced, and most significantly, at what cost, for at least 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
- 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
Please Help!!!What Kind Of Impact Does Energy Production Have On The Environment ?
What Kind Of Impact Does Energy Production Have On The Environment ??
Energy production will result in carbon emission. Therefore as output (GDP) of an economy increase, consumption of energy increase. Therefore energy production will increase to meet the demand. As a result there will be an increase in carbon emission.
However, it all depends on how the energy is produced. If the energy is derived from wind power or solar energy. There will be almost no negative impact on the environment.
In a nutshell: If energy production is generated from renewable sources like wind and solar energy, there is usually zero negative impact on the environment. While on the other hand, if the power is generated from sources such as coal, there will be a lot of carbon emission (which will result in global warming) and potentially land or river pollution if the waste from the energy production is not dispose properly.
Hope this helps.
Why Solar Energy Is Considered As Future Energy Source?
To answer this questions lets first look at the sources of energy we currently have in place:
1) Thermal (Coal, gas, all that you can burn and blast)
2) Hydro (from Dams - water falls and energy is produced)
6) Small Hydro
7) Solar Energy
Thrmal, Hydro are limited,
Nuclear may be considered dangerous,
Wind - is good - but may affect environment/nature
Biomass and small hydro are limited
Solar is abundant, available, safe, easy to use and has potential to become cheaper!
So, that is the best possible future alternative source of energy
Not best possible current source of energy though as efficiency is very less 16% at best
What Are Some Advantages And Disadvantages Of Bio-Energy?
Please Answer With As Many As You Can With As Much Detail As Possible
Bio energy means energy involving some kind of life (so wind/solar/hydro – power are not included)
i'm sure you know that but just to be clear.
there are many different types (and i don't know them all by any stretch of the imagination)
Anaerobic digestion: it runs from any biological matter but mostly from animal/human waste (toilet waste i mean) and also from landfill drainage so it doesn't take much energy to extract like oil or nuclear. It takes allot to build a plant though and it's much less efficient in terms of making up the energy used to build it. However, it is sustainable and has many places of usage particularly near large farms.
then there is combustion of wood or other bio matter which is preferable in terms of sustainable resource but not in terms of efficiency of combustion or distribution. however wood is more effectively used as fuel locally than oil which has to be transported great distances.
with natural gas there is are many positive aspects such as the conversion of methane (a very powerful greenhouse gas) carbon dioxide and water (CO2 still a green house gas but actually much less potent). it is less efficient as, say LPG, however again when harnessed locally it makes up for some of the lack in efficiency. That is to say because the LPG must be accessed, processed and transported from one of relatively very few places in the world.
in other words with my 3 examples, and i'm certain this applies to other forms of bio energy (sorry i don't know that much about any others), it is not so much the efficiency of the fuel that is important but partly the sustainability but also the fact that biological matter is all across the planet but the alternatives are not and they take a great deal of unsustainable energy to access and transport. a new attitude towards energy and it's distribution and implementation would make (in my opinion) bio energy at least a contribution to global energy.

Why Do People Claim Electric Cars Are &Quot;Coal Powered&Quot;?
I Have Encountered Many People That Believe Electric Cars Are Really Coal Powered Cars, And That They'Re Not Much Better Than Conventional Gas Cars. Well They'Re Wrong, Because It Takes A Massive Amount Of Electricity (Mostly Coal) To Refine Gasoline, Diesel To Power The Tanker Transporting That Gasoline, And On Top Of That Pollution Coming From The Exhaust Of The Car. Electric Cars Do Not Have To Be Charged With Electricity Generated From Coal, And Have No Emission. Have You Ever Heard Of Solar, Wind, Nuclear, Geothermal, And Hydroelectric Energy? It Is Feasible To Charge Electric Cars By These Alternate Energies. I Know Of Some People Who Charge Their Electric Cars At Home By Solar Panels, The Coal Argument Is Invalid.
The claim is based on the fact that owners charge their car off the general power grid. In West Virginia, that general grid is 99% coal. In the midwest, it is >75%. Almost nowhere in the USA is it less than 50%. So since most of the electricity comes from coal, electric cars run off coal. In the states with high coal, the electric car is actually more polluting than a regular gasoline car. You could if you had an electric car, buy solar or wind energy from the grid. You will pay a 25-50% premium in cost, so nobody does it. It is one of the "lies" when selling electric cars. If users were forced to use solar/wind, you could not sell electric cars. If they were priced without government help, you also could not sell them.
