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 resident to use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioner, cleaning clothing, seeing TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, numerous home owners find that the convenience, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Leading Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly minimize and even eliminate your electrical expenses
Whether you're a homeowner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can comprise a large part of your monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your utility expenses and you'll still save a lot of money.
#2 Make an excellent return on your investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity costs cost savings, the average American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy rates. In the previous 10 years, property electricity prices have increased by an average of 3 percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a company or homeowner with rising and falling capital, going solar also helps you better projection and handle your costs.
#4 Boost your home value
Several research studies have found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher home worths and offer quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, need for residential or commercial properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry added 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 development is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A normal property photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to 4 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are essential components of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that opt to run responsibly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of customer buying choices, producing goodwill and improving business results.
#9 Start Saving 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 money down.
Lots of property owners decide to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
As of 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 changing and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can calculate how much electrical power will be generated, and most notably, at what rate, 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

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
Would Hydroelectric Power Be A Good Energy Source For Chicago? Why Or Why Not ?
My Other Choices For An Energy Source For Chicago Are Wind Energy, Solar Energy, Biomass Energy, Fossil Fuels, Geothermal Energy, And Nuclear Power But I Have To Have Good Reasons On Why I Chose The Energy Source And It Was To Be Realistic As Well.
hydro electric power is a clean and safe power source. As I understand it, the problem is finding suitable large rivers and dams with a large enough water drop for generating the power.
How Can Solar Energy Be Converted To Electrical Energy?
I Am Thinking Of Storing The Solar Energy For Future Use At Home And Outdoors.Is It Necessary That The Energy We Derive From The Sun Thru Panels Be Put Into Use As Soon As We Get Or It Could Be Stored In Someplace For Future Use Like For Home Appliances And Gadgets .Instead Of Using Lpg Or Hydro Electricity Which Has No Guarantee Of Supply
Solar energy can be converted into Electrical Energy by using Photo-volatic cells/Solar panels. Till now solar energy is stored in batteries. But if u can generate enough heatfrom the solar energy u can store them using the property Latent Heat of Fusion.
What Are Some Inherencies On Solar Energy?
Hello, I Am In A Debate Class And I Need Some Inherencies On Solar Energy Please, Thanks
Inherency-Current administration opposes R+D now
"Top energy official extols Colorado based federal lab" Nov 8 2007
Fact: NREL has laid off 32 employees and suffered a $28 million shortfall (National Renewable Energy Lab) So currently understaffed and underfunded national labs for renewable energy research.
Inherency-tax credits for renewable energy have fallen prey to cost cutting related to the Iraq war
"Foster: Dems pushing for renewable energy," March 29, 2008 UPI
There is an effort underway to extend and renew tax cuts supporting the production and use of renewable energy. The tax cuts for renewable energy have little chance of passing due to the costs of the Iraq war. (how ironic is that, LOL)
These two inherencies prove that the US is not currently doing enough to support research and development of renewable energy such as solar, and also not extending tax credits to promote development and purchase of renewable energy such as solar.
Also, look out your window. How many solar panels do you see? There is an inherency right there.
What Is Solar Energy And What Does It Have To Do With?
Solar energy is energy that comes from the Sun. It is a good energy source to pursue because it is renewable. No matter how much we use, it doesn't reduce the amount of energy available.
How Long Before We Run Out Of Oil And Natural Gas?
First, we will never extract all the oil and natural gas that that has currently been discovered. About 85% of the original gas in place can be recovered from a gas reservoir leaving about 15% residual gas. A reasonable recovery factor for an oil reservoir is about 30%. That means that 70% of the original oil in place remains in the reservoir at the end of primary recovery. Secondary recovery techniques such as waterflooding the reservoir after primary depletion will produce additional oil, but not all of what remains. Therefore, even known fields won’t be entirely depleted.
Second, even in mature, heavily explored petroleum basins, we are unlikely to discover all of the hydrocarbon reservoirs that exist. Some areas tend to have reservoirs that are too small or too complicated to favor commercial success from exploratory drilling. Exploration economics will have to improve significantly before much effort can be justified in these areas.
Also there are geographic areas that are politically sensitive, resulting in restricted exploration. In the USA, these include areas off the east & west coasts, offshore Florida, the eastern Gulf of Mexico and the 1002 multi-use area of ANWR. It will require significant shortages and high petroleum prices to influence the public and elected politicians to open these areas to exploration and production.
To estimate how much producible hydrocarbon reserves exist, you need to know two things. First you need to be able to estimate the probability distribution of undiscovered fields remaining. Second, you need to be able to estimate the value of the produced products and the finding and extraction costs. These are just estimates, they will never be known with certainty. There is considerable variation is the parameters that influence the estimation of commercial reserve calculations. As the world economies heat up, China and India for example, began to compete with the United States and Europe for petroleum products. The increase in demand drives up prices. This becomes an incentive for increased exploration because marginal prospects will now exceed economic thresholds and some of them will subsequently be drilled. However, there is a dampening impact the quickly begins to follow the increase in drilling. Costs for drilling rigs, geophysical crews acquiring seismic and potential field data, land lease royalties and bonuses all begin to increase rapidly. This begins to make marginally commercial prospects less attractive again. Thus, estimating commercial reserves is like shooting at a moving target.
Finally, there is increasing competition from other energy sources. Wind and solar energy sources will undoubtedly increase their market share in the future. It is interesting that nuclear energy is also getting some press because it produces no CO2 waste products. These and other competitors to petroleum will replace petroleum consumption as they become effective cost competitors in the future. This will happen long before all extractable hydrocarbons have been produced.
