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 everyday life: running your a/c, cleaning clothes, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are substantial, many residents find that the convenience, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Leading Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably lower or perhaps remove your electric expenses
Whether you're a house owner, service, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can comprise a large part of your month-to-month expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.
#2 Earn a fantastic return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical power rates have actually increased by an average of 3 percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect versus unforeseeable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a business or house owner with changing capital, going solar also helps you better projection and manage your expenditures.
#4 Increase your house value
Multiple studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher home worths and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, demand for homes equipped 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 an essential element of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate changes in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent way to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A normal property solar panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are crucial parts of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding organisations that opt to operate responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of consumer buying decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing company results.
#9 Start Conserving 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.
Numerous property owners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
Since 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 fluctuating and unreliable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and basic math, we can determine how much electrical power will be generated, and most notably, at exactly what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 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 Size Solar Panels Would Be Needed To Run A Air-Conditioner In A Small Rv?
You're going to find out that if the entire RV were covered in solar panels it wouldn't be enough to run an AC unit.A fan,yes.
How Come Solar Energy And Other Safer Power Sources Much Less Utilized To Replace Deadly Fossil Fuels?
There Must Be A Number Of Reasons Why. Pollution Of The Earth'S Surface And Atmosphere Are Critical Today As Never Before.
The answer is in the lack of political will and a mountain of disinformation from those powerful forces who wish to silence any talk of alternatives.
We are constantly told that alternatives like solar are too expensive with their tax credit subsidies.
What they don't tell you is the enormous hidden costs of oil and other fossil fuels. The subsidies to the oil and gas industries are estimated at up to $80 billion a year. The total hidden costs are estimated at up to $800 billion a year. If you paid that at the pump, gasoline would now be approaching $12 a gallon.
Subsidies to alternative energy are miniscule in comparison.
An energy bill that passed in a watered down form in December, would have taken $21 billion in tax credits from oil companies, to apply to renewal of the alt energy tax credits, which expire this year. 40 Republican senators basically stripped this provision from the bill, which Bush would have vetoed, anyway.
The new proposal is to take $18 billion and apply it to renewing the alt energy tax credits. There is still much opposition from Republicans.
Dis-information, like the talking head on FOX news who made the statement, which of course went unchallenged, that "solar couldn't power a small sailboat never mind contribute meaningfully to our nations energy needs."
That's in contrast to this article from Scientific American which proposes converting the entire U.S. electric grid to solar at a cost in public money that is a small fraction of what we now give oil companies in subsidies.
Scientific American A Solar Grand Plan
Green Wombat has a bunch of articles about what is already happening with solar thermal power plants in California and Arizona.
scroll down for stories:
And one solar thermal company has this to say.
"Solar thermal power plants such as Ausra's generate electricity by driving steam turbines with sunshine. Ausra's solar concentrators boil water with focused sunlight, and produce electricity at prices directly competitive with gas- and coal-fired electric power."
"Solar is one the most land-efficient sources of clean power we have, using a fraction of the area needed by hydro or wind projects of comparable output. All of America's needs for electric power – the entire US grid, night and day – can be generated with Ausra's current technology using a square parcel of land 92 miles on a side. For comparison, this is less than 1% of America's deserts, less land than currently in use in the U.S. for coal mines."
And from one of the articles at Green Wombat:
"In recent months, PG&E has signed deals for more than a gigawatt of electricity — enough to light more than 750,000 homes — with solar power plant developers."
"The solar thermal industry is in its infancy but utilities like PG&E (PCG), Southern California Edison (EIX) and San Diego Gas & Electric (SRE) have signed several contracts for solar power plants and negotiations for gigawatts more of solar electricity are ongoing."
Wind also has huge potential and is cost effective.
Why Do We Need To Use Solar Energy?
Why Do We Use Solar Energy And What Is The Point In It And Jow Do They Change It To Heat Energy.
There are two angles to view this question " why do we need to use solar energy?"
1. To achieve social responsibility:
We are daily using lots of fossil fuel and other carbon compounds, that are polluting our environment. Initiating Global Warmning, environmental imbalance, ozone layer depletion and which inturn is a big threat to the future human race.
Solar energy is a clean and a green energy, harnessing it will not pollute the environment or generate any adverse effects.
2. To achieve financial goals:
Solar energy after installation is INFLATION FREE source of power, which means you are not dependent on fluctuating raw material cost for your generation of power...This adds to energy independence.
Also in countries where conventional power is expensive and wind energy is not regular solar energy tends to be the most efficient solution.
In countries where power is not reliable, we can opt for green source of energy to replace diesel generators or battery backup.
I hope this answers your question at your satisfaction
How Do You Transport Solar Energy?
How Do You Move Solar Energy From One Place To Another If It Is The Sun How Do You Contain It And Transport It
Solar energy is frequently collected by devices called solar cells. These flat plates convert sun light to a little electricity which can then either be stored in batteries, used or sent out on the grid.
Solar energy (sunlight) can also be used to make plants grow. Once grown they can be harvested and shipped to locations where it can be burned as fuel or it can be transformed into alcohol or diesel and used as a fuel.
Sunlight can also shine on a field of mirrors that all reflect to one point that holds a tank of water that is boiled to make steam. The steam is used to make electricity by turning a generator. All in all there is not that much energy in a square foot of sunlight so it takes a lot of area to make much power. That is why you do not see things like solar cars.
Q-10:How Energy Can Be Obtained From Sunlight?Give Two Ways.?
1. by using photovoltaic cells which convert sunlight to electricity directly
2. solar cookers which concentrate heat energy onto food kept in small plastic containers to cook them fast
