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 use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning unit, cleaning clothes, watching TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, many residents find that the benefit, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically minimize and even eliminate your electric costs
Whether you're a homeowner, company, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can make up a large part of your month-to-month costs. With a solar panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your utility expenses and you'll still save a great deal of loan.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy costs savings, the typical American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against increasing energy expenses
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous ten years, residential electricity rates have actually increased by an average of 3 percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard against unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're an organisation or property owner with rising and falling cash circulation, going solar also helps you much better projection and manage your expenses.
#4 Boost your residential or commercial property value
Numerous research studies have discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly 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, demand for homes equipped 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 component of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price variations in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market included 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 growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A normal residential solar panel system will remove three to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are very important components of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that select to run responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of customer purchasing choices, creating goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Lots of homeowners pick to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The energy companies are well-known for their varying and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical energy will be produced, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for at least 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 Are The Upcoming Technologies In Solar Energy Conservation.?
Adivise Some Solar Technlogies For Buildings Like A Campus Dining Or A Commercial Building.
I know of one very exciting upcoming technology: Thin Film Photovoltaics
Regular, crystalline solar panels require silicon crystals. As a result, there is a limit to how cheaply they can be made. You can only cut manufacturing costs on regular solar panels by so much. And right now, even at full production, they aren't cost effective without government subsidies. But thin film panels don't require crystals. They are still expensive, because they are new and not yet at full production. But they hold a LOT of promise for bringing the price of solar PV down to being competitive with other traditional fuels.
Who Advocates For Wind Power To Be Used?
I Neeeed To Know Who Are Some Major People Or Orginazations Or Whatever That Encourage And Advocate Wind Energy Usage/ Wind Power???
It has its' place but is noisy and not overly efficient. I advocate less greed in the use of power. Here in england they are forcing us to be greener yet the big city companies leave thousands of watts of lighting burning day and night. We will never meet the requirements of the whole world at the levels we use power now so must reduce what we all use then provide as much of our power from the most reliable and least toxic sources.
Gas turbines are the best we have at the moment for efficiency vs pollution so we need to be generating gas from waste and using that as primary source where possible then supplementing with wind, wave, solar geothermal and any other technology we can find but not nuclear until the science can deal with the waste.
I will repeat my call for reduction of energy use as the only long term solution.

Why Dont We Use Hydrogen. I Know That It Costs Energy To Get They Hydrogen, But Then Shouldnt We Us Solar Energy To Get The Hydrogen?
Even if we used solar energy for electrolysis to break the atomic bonds in water molecules to get hydrogen, it would still be a waste.
It takes a ton of energy to break atomic bonds. More energy than you can get out by burning the hydrogen for fuel, so overall you have a net loss of energy. Even if that weren't a problem, there's no hydrogen infrastructure (transport and storage for hydrogen refueling). Building this infrastructure would cost billions of dollars.
Instead you could power a car directly with the solar energy by using it to charge up a battery and run an electric motor. This is a far more efficient process, and the infrastructure (power grid) is already in place. Electric cars are the way of the future.
