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 house owners to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioner, cleaning clothing, seeing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, numerous homeowners find that the benefit, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly reduce and even remove your electric expenses
Whether you're a house owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can make up a big portion of your month-to-month expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your utility costs and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.
#2 Make a great return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs savings, the average American property owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical power costs have increased by approximately three percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and secure against unpredictable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a business or property owner with changing cash flow, going solar also assists you much better forecast and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your house worth
Several research studies have actually discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater home values and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for homes equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential element of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost variations in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent method to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A common residential photovoltaic panel system will remove three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are important elements of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that opt to run properly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of consumer getting choices, producing goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Numerous property owners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The utility companies are notorious for their changing and unreliable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can determine what does it cost? electricity will be produced, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of 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
Kinetic Or Potential Energy? ?
Classify Each Of The Following As Having Either Kinetic Energy,Potential Energy Or Both
A.A Pile Of Fire Wood
D. A Gallon Of Gasoline
A pille of fire wood would have potential energy, because it could burn, or the pile itself could fall if nudged.
Light is moving photons, or kinetic energy. Solar sails could use photons to accelerate space ships.
Wind is kinetic energy, it is moving air molecules.
A gallon of gasoline is potential energy, because it could burn and release its chemical energy. Unless it were moving in the tank of your car, it would not have any kinetic energy on its own.
Why Are &Quot;Conservatives&Quot; So Bent On Not Conserving Energy?
They'Re Always Saying Or Writing Things Like:
&Quot;Ain'T No Such Thing As Peak Oil. Shale Will Save Us!&Quot; (Failure To Understand The Difference Between Hypothetical Reserves And Usable Flow-Rates; See: 1970 U.S. Oil Production Peak)
&Quot;Idling An Engine For Many Minutes Uses Less Energy Than Stopping And Restarting It.&Quot; (Simply False For Periods Over 30 Seconds Or So; No Big Surge Of Fuel Is Needed To Restart An Engine)
&Quot;It Takes More Energy To Turn A Light Off And On Vs. Leaving It On For Hours.&Quot; (Bogus For The Same Reason As The Engine-Idling Lie)
&Quot;Hybrid Car Batteries & Cfl Bulbs Are Major Pollution Sources.&Quot; (They Claim To Care About Pollution When Mocking Energy-Conserving Technologies, But When Fracking Pollutes Ground Water It'S No Big Deal)
Why Are These People So Compelled To Waste Energy, Cause Pollution And Label It As &Quot;Patriotism&Quot; Or &Quot;God'S Will?&Quot; You'D Think Conservation Would Be A Conservative Value. Try To Answer This Question Without Changing The Subject To Taxes.
They're being conservative in terms of where our jobs are from and wish to expand on what we have now.
Shale oil is called tight oil because it could not be easily accessed. The reserves are proven and we've known they existed for a very long time but wells would run dry within days due to how shallow the reserve is, sometimes as little as 30 feet thick. With modern horizontal drilling and fracking, it's become possible to access tight oil and it is a reserve much larger than Saudi Arabia. However fracking comes with a significant threat to ground water despite a separation of hundreds to thousands of feet of solid rock mostly because we know little about microfractures. I believe that the pipeline and tar sands debacle is just to distract the public by pushing tar sands as the whipping boy while shale oil is developed, people are so easily manipulated.
EV batteries are to some extent an unnecessary expense. Both hydrocarbon fuels and batteries are just chemical stores of energy, fossil fuels being solar energy captured millions of years ago. Since the 1920's we've known how to synthesize fuels from syngas, a mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen gases which can be made from fossil fuel, from biomass such as trash and dried sewage or even directly from CO2 and water. We can in fact "recharge" gasoline and diesel from other energy sources just as you would recharge an EV. All of the billion vehicles existing today could be made "green" just by addressing how we make our fuel. But this doesn't sell new cars. Hybrids, flexfuel, hydrogen and EV's are greenwashing to sell new cars and so many people fall for that.
Conservatism is a resistance to change, a preference for the tried and true, this often isn't the best answer and may be horribly insufficient given the threats of the next few decades but it slows down the rate at which people are so easily misled, it also entrenches mistakes but the idea is to minimize them. All that people think is green is not green.
What Are The Benefits Of Using Hydrogen To Produce Energy?
Safe For Ur Help
Hydrogen does not "produce" energy. Hydrogen is a great energy carrier.
The energy (less losses in the system of producing it) is simply transferred to a different form.
Hydrogen is not found naturally on its own. We cannot drill a well somewhere and tap hydrogen. It has to be made.
If for example, you use a solar cell (not better than 14% efficient) to convert sunlight to electricity which is stored in a battery, and then use electrolysis to separate hydrogen and oxygen from water, then the electrolysis process (only about 12% efficient) will turn what energy is left into a fuel that may be burned.
The engine (say a internal combustion engine at around 30% efficiency) burns the gas for some mechanical effort being produced.
The only way I can see this working on large scales is to harness the power of the waves to produce electricity. That electricity would be used on the spot to electrolyze sea water to produce Hydrogen, Oxygen and some Chlorine. This is the way salt water pool chlorinators work. The chlorine breaks down quickly in sunlight and is not an ongoing issue.
The wave energy is also able to be used to pump the hydrogen to shore for distribution in conventional pipelines and gas distribution systems.
As far as generating hydrogen from a battey bank to run a car - you can see that because of the losses in converting from one form to another, there is little point in doing this. We may as well have used the energy from the battery to drive a high efficiency electric motor to move the car. Some rare earth magnet motors are now well over 90% efficient.
The benefits of using hydrogen are that it REMAINS a good energy carrier even after many years of storage - something that is not true of batteries.
What Are Some Positive And Negative Economic Or Environmental Consequences Of Solar Energy Short Or Long Term?
One of the most important negative issues regarding solar is the lack of public knowledge about the current status of solar. A second negative is that there is a high up front cost for purchase and installation. A third negative is that the main components of the solar panels has been a limiting factor. A fourth negative is that the current producers of electric energy are not eager to give up their big profits. A fifth negative is that solar manufacturers do not yet have large expendable financial resources to buy political clout. The oil industry seems to toy with solar investors, driving oil prices high, teasing investors to buy solar, then drop oil prices, causing solar companies to go broke. Once the investment money is gone, it can take a long time to recover. Once an investor loses on their solar investment, they are much less likely to invest again. Maybe the scariest of the negatives is that so many people have again fallen prey to the belief that nuclear can save us and is clean and safe. Uh huh!
The first positive fact about solar is that a lot of companies are finally starting to see that solar, even without the subsidies that all other energy companies have enjoyed is catching on. Google, for example is really making an extreme effort to use it at their own buildings. The second positive fact is that while the cost of purchase and installation has a higher up front cost, nothing has to be purchased again and after 5-10 years the panels will be paid off and from that time forward, there will be no energy cost increases and any electricity produced will get a refund from the power company. It appears also that photovoltaic solar units are on the verge of a major decrease in costs and may soon be favorably or similarly competetive with current energy sources. A third positive feature of solar is that there is absolutely no waste produced. When panels reach their end of life, they can be safely recycled. There is no soot, no radioactive waste, no carbon dioxide, no fear of oil embargos, just cash in your pocket year after year.

Weelll, theoretically there are 7 forms of energy, so any one of them could move a vehicle.
compressed air, no need for combustion to produce differential pressure (browse "air car");
nuke ... not really an option for a car;
electricity ... lots of "potential" there *lol*, taking either batteries, fuel cells or both (browse "Ballard fuel cell").
magnetic induction ... the highway provides the power ... no need to elevate the car or go 400kph, but it could be applied to cars(browse high speed trains);
combustibles ... are there any that are benign or are they all based on H-C-O chemical reactions; and
I would approach it from an energy density perspective. Nuclear is the most dense form of energy, oil the second, H2 is probably the least, at least @STP. You can also correlate hazard versus energy density to see which forms "are worth it".
