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 everyday life: running your air conditioner, cleaning clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, numerous home owners discover that the convenience, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably lower or perhaps remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a homeowner, company, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a big portion of your regular monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your energy bills and you'll still save a great deal of loan.
#2 Make an excellent return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the finest methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power costs 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 Safeguard against rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the past ten years, domestic electrical energy rates have actually increased by an average of three percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect against unforeseeable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a business or homeowner with ever-changing money flow, going solar likewise helps you better projection and manage your expenditures.
#4 Boost your home or business worth
Multiple research studies have actually discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and sell more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, need for homes 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 an essential element of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce 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 annually.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are important components of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding services that decide to run responsibly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of customer acquiring choices, creating goodwill and enhancing business results.
#9 Start Conserving 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 loan down.
Many homeowners pick to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy 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 utility business are well-known for their varying and unreliable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can determine how much electrical energy will be generated, and most importantly, at exactly what rate, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired 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
In California After 2020 Every Newly Built House Is Required To Have Solar Panels.What About Houses Th?
That Are Located In Not-So-Sunny Cities Like In Daily City,Bay Area ?
Would They Need To Have Solar Panels As Well Even Though The Number Of Sunny Days In That City(Per Year) Can Be Counted On 4 Fingers ?
Anyone Knows What The Name Of That Bill Is And Where I Can Read Details About Exceptions ?
You cannot find that law because it does not exist. (I am baffled by people who think that because something is said in a Y!A question it must be true.) California has adopted a standard that 33% of electric production should be from renewable sources (not just solar) by 2020. No state law mandates the use of solar panels. Some cities have done so as part of their zoning requirements for new construction. As you might suspect, these are in areas that get a lot of sun, like Lancaster:
However, just FYI, Daly City is sunny over 70% of the time, and averages 261 sunny days a year, above the national average of 205.

San Francisco State Vs Cal State East Bay?
Question Says It All.
Most Of My Classmates Who Didn'T Want San Jose State Got Excepted, But When I Wanted It, I Didnt
So, I Live In Berkeley And I Have A Choice Between Sfsu And Cal State East Bay. Which One Would You Choose And Why. I'M Probably Going To Be Commuting Using Bart. Bart Fares:
Sfsu: $8 A Day.
East Bay: $6.50 A Day.
I Don'T Really Mind About The Price But I Just Wnt To Get In The Better School.
We agree with "ownpool"!

Under the direction of President Mohammad H. Qayoumi, CSUEB is striving to become a model of sustainability. You may have read the news last week that California Public Utilities Commission approved a PG&E fuel cell for installation on our Hayward campus which makes CSUEB one of the first college campuses in Northern California to have a fuel cell. Already, CSUEB holds one of the largest collections of solar electric panels in Northern California thanks to a record $3.4 million rebate from PG&E in 2004. Zipcar just launched on campus earlier this month offering a convenient, economical and environmentally friendly alternative to owning a car.
Faculty members are not only dedicated to their students but to also pursing advancement within their research areas. Professor of Geography & Environmental Studies Karina Garbesi participates in energy analysis at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Forbes magazine wrote about Accounting and Finance Professor Jerry Lui’s research on Google stock manipulation. Professor of Biological Sciences Chris Kitting is participating in his second NASA mission in June 2010. Since 1997, David Stronck, professor of teacher education, has received more than $1 million in funding from Genentech Inc. to improve and expand science education in Bay Area schools. If you watch Bay Area news stations, you have a good chance of seeing Economist Stephen Shmanske or Political Science Professor Elizabeth Bergman commenting on topical events.
We invite you to take a campus tour and see CSUEB for yourself. http://www20.csueastbay.edu/prospective/...
What You All Think About Solar Industry? Why The Cost Is Still So High?
What You All Think About Solar Industry? Why The Cost Is Still So High In Usa? Because Politic?
I Plan To Build A Solar Plant In Southeast Asia To Manufacure Solar Supplies, So We Are In U.S.Much Better To Have A Low Cost Supplies Since Our Energy Demand Is Increased By Time And So High Here. Residents In Us. To Store A Solar System Here Cost Ranges From 30K To 50K Mimimum For A Home From 1500 To 3000 Square Feets. I Would Like To Bring This Cost Down At Least 50% So Every Middle Class Or Low Class Families Can Afford It.

The price is so high for photovoltaic cells because of the precious materials used in them: Platinum, Rubidium, etc. This will not come down because there is a limited supply of these (and Platinum is often wasted in jewelery just like diamond. Both of these materials have great properties for commercial and scientific products but the price is inflated because they look shinny).
There are ways to make copper/copper oxide solar panels, but copper price is on the rise, too.
The best way to capture solar energy is with mirror farms and greenhouse farms. The mirrors focus the sun's light on a central point, and is used to boil oil, which passes through a turbine. The greenhouses use greenhouse material over a large area. The air inside is warmed, and will rise through an elevated opening and through a turbine.
So, I'm sorry to burst your bubble, but individual solar power will probably still be a luxury item into the near future. Building large solar farms and adding them into the grid just like any coal or gas plant is probably the most efficient solution.
