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 utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothes, watching TV, cooking dinner. 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 substantial, many property owners discover that the benefit, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.

#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate changes in global energy markets.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Lots of house owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar supplier for electricity-- 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 companies are notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electricity rates. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate how much electrical energy will be produced, and most notably, at what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Are Some Advantages And Disadvantages Of Solar Energy?
What Are Some Advantages And Disadvantages Of Solar Energy?
(1) lower marginal cost for increasing energy production (you don't have to build a new coal fired facility to achieve a small increase in power production);
(2) fewer issues with greenhouse gas production
(3) distributed power production;
(4) some independence from the grid.
(1) dependency on insolation (it works better in Arizona than in the Yukon);
(2) initial installation cost for individual homeowner (but this is changing with new financing methods);
(3) sensitivity to weather
(4) it may require neighbors to be cooperative by not growing trees that block rooftop solar arrays;
Where Can I Get The Cheapest Solar Energy For Developing Countries?
My choice would definitely be China, they have the cheapest labor and therefore the cheapest solar energy systems, Currently China produces over 30 percent of the world's solar photovoltaics and the prices are constantly dropping
What Are Ways Solar Energy Is Used?
I Need About 5 Ways
Let's see there's passive (Home heating-window), active (Water heating-solar collector), photovoltaic (electricity), solar pressure (for solar sails-space travel) and light (Visible spectrum). Here a link for a few ideas: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_energy
Hope that helps.
What Is Photosynthetic Efficiency?
Can Someone Please Explain To Me What The Basic Definition Of Photosynthetic Efficiency? I Am Trying To Calculate How Much Solar Energy The Foods I Eat Take In When They Grow And I Am Told This Depends On Their Photosynthetic Efficiency.
Well, one way of looking at it is to compare how much energy is in the food compared to how much solar energy was available.
How Much Money Was Made From Renewable Energy 2011?
I'M Trying To See How Much Money Was Made From Renewable Energy Sources Such As Solar And Wind.
Thats a good question. perhaps not as much was made as was spent developing those sources. Renewable energy has been a prevailing issue due to our energy dependence and the high cost of oil. While the high cost of oil makes huge amounts of money for oil companies and OPEC, we will undoubtedly one day have to resort to the use of alternative and renewable energy to power our vehicles along with other modes of transportation as well as heat our homes and generate electricity for households and businesses. my speculation is that we will continue to use light sweet crude until the wells in the middle east run dry and then develop corn ethanol and become the primary exporter of fuel in the world bwahahahaha
