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 homeowner to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothes, viewing TV, cooking supper. 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 substantial, numerous residents find that the convenience, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Leading Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly minimize or even remove your electric bills
Whether you're a house owner, business, or nonprofit, electricity costs can comprise a large part of your monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your energy costs and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Make an excellent return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the finest ways to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power costs cost savings, the average American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical energy rates have gone up by approximately 3 percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure against unpredictable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a company or property owner with rising and falling cash flow, going solar also assists you much better projection and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home value
Multiple studies have discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and offer more rapidly 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 become more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties 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 a key element of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a terrific way to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A typical domestic solar panel system will eliminate 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are very important components of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that opt to run responsibly. Services are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of customer getting decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing service results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Many homeowners pick to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This means that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The energy business are notorious for their varying and unreliable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can calculate just how much electricity will be generated, and most importantly, at exactly what cost, for at least the next Twenty 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
- 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 Emerging Technologies Will Make The Solar Energy Safer,More Usable, More Efficient, Cleaner, Etc?
Probably the biggest difference coming down the road in solar is battery storage. Tesla promises cheap battery storage in the next several years. This could be a real game changer. I even know some who were considering a generator installation and are looking into a battery backup for the house instead. At that point even with a modest amount of solar collectors makes some sense as a method to gather energy over time for emergency use.
The long sought goal of cheaper solar panels are becoming a reality. What is needed in the market now is innnovation on the permitting and installation. For this a modular design that can be approved at the factory rather than at the home would be one method
I Need To Make A Solar Cooker For Science Class. Any Suggestions?
We Need To Boil Water Using No Electricity, Just Solar Energy. Please Help Me Out!
Take a look at these things called "sun ovens", when I was in Haiti, we got them to about 250-300 degrees fairly regularly, depending on where you live it would be possible to boil water with something of a similar design.
I Have An Idea And I Want To Know If It Can Work. Thx Engineers.?
An Airport That Runs Only On Solar Power. Every Roof Has Solar Panels To Power It During The Day And It Has A Fleet Of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (Uav) That Are Solar Powered And Have Energy Collectors. During The Day They Fly Around In Circles And Collect Energy All Day Long And Then At Night They Set Down And Connect To A Grid To Power The Airport. A Completely Green Airport. So Besides Costs Are There Any Reasons Why This Wouldn'T Work And Of Course They Would Use Normal Electricity As A Backup Or Even Dual Mode So That Part Of An Airport Uses Electricity(Computers/ Half The Lights) And The Other Parts Like (Escalators And The Other Lights )Would Use Solar Power.
Well, there are 3 things you need here: How much energy an average airport uses, how much surface area it has, and how much energy you get from sunlight per surface area. Then assuming you have enough space on the airport to provide for its energy needs, you can look up the average price for solar cells and how much it would cost to cover it. Then you can see how many years you expect those cells to last (20 years), and calculate the costs of that vs. buying electricity from the grid for 20 years.
The bottom line:
1) It's a nice sentiment, but yes, the main problem is that it would still be too expensive.
2) I can tell you right now that the UAV's will spend all their energy flying around and will not contribute to the charge of the airport. Remember the amount of energy you get from solar is dependent on the amount of surface area of direct sunlight you are covering. Assuming you don't have football court sized UAVs, they will be useless for solar harvesting.
If You Were The Energy Czar Of Your State, Where Would You Invest Your Money?
Why? And Can You Explain Fossil Fuel Vs. Renewable Fuels
Fossil fuels are not replenished - once oil, natural gas and coal are taken from the earth and burned, they are gone forever. Renewable energy sources are geothermal, biomass, wind and solar. They never run out.
Of the renewable energy sources, geothermal is by far the most practical at this point in time. Solar and wind are sexy, but they are still in development. Geothermal is here and viable - and it works. So that is where I would put my money. To learn more go to the site below.
Solar-To-Hydrogen Energy The Future?
I Read This Interesting Article Of Using The Suns Heat To Break Water Into Hydrogen And Oxygen Molecules Instead Of Fossil Fuels And I Think Its A Great Idea. What Do U Guys Think?
Looks like an interesting idea.
I've done my best to not be engulfed on oil consumption. I take public transportation to work everyday. I recycle and the car I own is a Prius.
I"m all for green ideas :D
