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, washing clothing, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are significant, numerous property owners find that the convenience, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically decrease or perhaps remove your electrical bills
Whether you're a homeowner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can make up a big part of your monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your energy costs and you'll still save a great deal of money.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the finest ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power expense savings, the typical American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous ten years, property electrical energy costs have increased by an average of 3 percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and protect against unpredictable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a company or homeowner with ever-changing money flow, going solar likewise assists you much better forecast and handle your expenses.
#4 Boost your house worth
Several research studies have found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, need for homes geared up 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 part of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate variations in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry 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 country. This growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A normal property photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to 4 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are essential elements of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding services that opt to run responsibly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are an effective driver of consumer buying choices, developing goodwill and improving company outcomes.
#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 cash down.
Many house owners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar supplier 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 energy companies are well-known for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power rates. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can determine how much electrical power will be produced, and most importantly, at exactly what cost, 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
Alternative Energy Thesis?
I Need Help Coming Up With A Thesis Statement Regarding Alternative Energy Being Implemented As Our Dominate Sources Of Energy Rather Than Nuclear And Fossil Fuels. Any Advice Would Be Much Appreciated. Thanks!
From Scientific American magazine Jan 2008
A proposal to convert U.S. electric grid to 65% solar by 2050 and almost 100% by 2100
Using concentrating photovoltaic and concentrating solar thermal power plants in the U.S. southwest.
Solar panels work almost anywhere. They just need photons, even diffuse photons on cloudy days is enough. Sure sunnier is better but they are practical over a fairly wide range.
The efficiency is up to 20% now at the best, and there are new thin film solar cells and panels that are cheaper to make. The power plants, I mentioned, work much better in a really sunny climate, like our southwest.
has a bunch of articles about the companies involved and the plants in California already running, being built, and under study. Pilot plants were built in the 80s and 90s and are putting out 350 megawatts. All the proposed and okayed plants in California add up to 2.6 gigawatts.
From 175 megawatts at a plant to be built near San Luis Obispo and a couple of 400 and 500 megawatt ones in the Mojave and two proposed plants of up to 800 and 900 megawatts each
They will be much bigger than the pilot plants. More should follow. Two of the companies are already building factories to mass produce the parts for the plants. For comparison; San Francisco could be powered by 1 gigawatt. Hoover Dam 2 gigawatt
medium size nuclear plant 2 gigawatt.
to see what oil really cost. http://www.setamericafree.org/saf_hidden...
benefits of solar vs oil would be a good topic.
If There Is So Much Unused Oil In Alaska?
It Seems The Reason Bush Said We Weren'T Going To Mess With The Oil In Alaska Was To Save It For Future Generations... Yet We Are Researching New Means Of Energy (Solar, Hydrogen, Etc.) Since It Is Clear That We Will Likely Be Driving Hydrogen Or Electric Powered Cars In The Future, Why Not Harvest The Oil In Alaska?
Some people see all energy options in some kind of good-versus-evil opera, and to them, oil energy is Evil. That's all. From any reasonable perspective, we should use it. What we're doing to the environment by NOT using it is having other countries drill the wells and pump the oil, those being countries that would gladly pave a rainforest without remorse if they thought it would save them a buck just today, i.e. countries that will make quite a sloppy mess getting the oil from the ground to us. Not to mention that these are mostly countries (e.g. Saudi Arabia) that we don't really need to be funding.
Sources For Safety Of Nuclear, Solar, And Hydro Energy?
How Safe Is Nuclear Energy Compared To Solar And Hydro Energy? Please Give Me Some Source
Hope these help!
What'S The Pros And Cons Of Solar Energy Versus Wind Energy?
I'M Planning On Building A Business. What Would Be The Advantage Of Using Solar Cells Or Windmills To Produce The Power, Or At Least To Keep The Cost Of Electrical Power Down? The Facility Will Be In The Midwest And Will Be Opened Year Round Thru Four Seasons.
Ideally you could install what is called an hybrid system.
It is a combination of solar panels and wind turbine and its working fine.
The turbine will run 24 hours and the solar panels will produce electricity during the day.
Let'S Talk About The Us Energy Policy?
There Is No Liberal Or Conservative Slant To This Question...Democrats, We Have To Face The Fact That Our Party Has Given Into The Extreme Environmentalists, Those Who Favor Artificially Raising Gas Pump Prices (Through Taxes Mostly) To Be On Par With The Rest Of The World. That Does Two Things: It Forces Conservation (Not Entirely A Bad Thing) And Makes Alternative Energy Sources Look More Attractive.
In The Meantime We Are Still Sucking Gas As A Nation And Sending Over $1 Billion Per Day To Oil Producing Countries, Many Of Whom Are Our Enemies And Would Like To See Us Dead. (Apparently Including A Guy From Canada On Ya Today)
There Is A Solution To High Gas Prices And Protecting Our National Security. It Is Natural Gas. T Boone Pickens Presented (Pre-Obama) A Plan To Greatly Reduce The Use Of Oil By Converting Most Semi Trucks To Natural Gas. Since They Tend To Follow The Major Interstates, It Wouldn'T Be Too Costly To Build (Or Convert Existing) Gas Stations To Natural Gas Dispensing. There Are 5 Million Trucks On The Road, And If Just Half Were Converted It Would Save $125 Billion Per Year In Gasoline.
One Issue Is &Quot;Fracking&Quot; And The Means Of Getting Natural Gas Out Of The Ground Safely. If You Ever Travel To Wyoming, You Will See That The Gas Is Practically Coming Out By Itself. The West Has Tons Of It, Enough For Something Like 140 Years.
I'D Like To Hear People'S Comments About This. It Seems Like The Easy And Sensible Solution To Our Energy Problems To Me.
When you think of how much energy a massive country like the United States uses, I do not think there is one magic bullet. I am willing to discuss natural gas, wind, solar, nuclear, hydroelectric, etc.
