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 property owner to use the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, cleaning clothes, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, lots of homeowners find that the convenience, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Leading Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically reduce or even eliminate your electrical costs
Whether you're a house owner, service, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can comprise a big part of your regular monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll create complimentary 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 energy costs and you'll still save a great deal of loan.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity costs cost savings, the typical American house owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, property electricity prices have actually increased by an average of 3 percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a service or homeowner with ever-changing money circulation, going solar also assists you much better forecast and handle your expenses.
#4 Boost your home or business value
Multiple research studies have discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater property values and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, need for properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost 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 electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate fluctuations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a great method 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 common domestic solar panel system will eliminate three to four heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are essential elements of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that opt to run responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of consumer purchasing decisions, creating goodwill and improving business results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Numerous house owners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy 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 infamous for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward trend.
With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can determine just how much electricity will be generated, and most notably, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
Which Are The Cheapest Universities In The United States For International Undergrad Students?
I Am From Bangladesh. I Am Looking To Get Myself Admitted Into A Reputed Undergrad Program In The United States. But Tuition Has Become A Matter Of Concern For Me Since I Am Not Able To Afford More Than 18,000 Usd/Year. In This Lieu, I Am Looking For A University Which Offers Undergrad Program For International Students At 10,000 Usd/Year Or Less. I Am Looking For Cse, Eee Or Marine Engineering. I Am Open To Any State, City Or University As Long As They Are Cheap And Offering Bsc Within My Budget Range.
Ps: It Will Be Extremely Helpful If You Kindly Provide Me With The University Detail Or Website Of The Uni.
Suppose, I Have Gpa 5.0 (On A Scale Of 5) In Secondary School Certificate (Ssc), Gpa 5.0 In Higher Secondary School Certificate (Hsc) And 7.0 Band Score On Ielts. Can I Expect Some Sort Of Scholarship? If Yes, Then A Bit Hints Will Be Extremely Appreciated.
You sound like an intelligent student. You can have a successful future with careful planning and strategizing. My advise to you is that its best to stay at home and study your bachelors degree at home. It can be in Bangladesh, India, or any such place. After you have a bachelors degree firmly in your grasp then come to the United States to study for your masters.
Honestly, if your funds are limited then there are very few options available. You can go to community college for the first two years. I recommend Richland Community College in Dallas Tx or Collin County Community College. A community college will teach you the first two years of college. Its cheap as in $3,000 a year. Plus room, food, living expenses of $15,000 that will be exactly enough for you to get a visa. Community college does not have a very challenging academic enviroment though but if you are desperate for a visa and money is tight then its a last option.
Some US embassies will NOT give you a student visa for community college. They feel its too simple/ basic and you are really wanting to permanently immigrate to the US. So this plan may backfire.
After two years you can transfer to a regular university.
My honest opinion is that you should stay in your country and at least get a bachelors degree before you try going abroad. Many students drop out of school due to lack of finances and end up becoming taxi drivers. Just stay home, go to college, then come here for your masters.
Many, many foreigners regret coming here prior to getting an education. In ten years time when you compare yourself to your class mates from home they will have a far better education than yours. They will live in a big house plus two housemaids while you are driving a taxi in the wonderful USA. Just a warning. Things can go well if you are very lucky and you come here with no education. But things are more likely to go badly and I say that based on experience.
Again, the best thing to do is to come to the USA after you have completed your bachelors degree.
My top picks for a 4 year college include UT Austin and Texas A and M. I recommend these two colleges because they are cheap, ranked in the top twenty of public colleges, and they are in Texas. Texas itself is a state that offers many advantages such as - cheap cost of living, housing is affordable, most foreigners are able to buy a home, jobs are plentiful, lowest unemployment rate, strongest economy, good weather, very little racial prejudice. It is a wonderful place to thrive as a foreigner.
Stay away from the east and west coast, namely New York, Massachussets, Los Angeles, San Francisco. Stick to Texas, Arizona, Utah, and other southern states. These places are not as glamorous and flashy as the others. Remember right now you are strategizing and planning for your future tomorrow, not what looks good on facebook today.
If you do come here I recommend you study these two fields: biomedical engineering (CAT scans, MRI machines, X rays) or renewable energy engineering (solar energy, wind energy). Those are the two hottest fields in engineering right now. The other fields in engineering are flooded (too many graduates). Its very important for you to study what is in demand because of the slow economy. That way you will be able to get a well paying job quickly after you graduate. I am giving you many helpful tips here. Read my answer twice and save it.
For a regular university:
To study in the USA you need a minimum of USD $30,000 a year to finance tuition, food and board. There are almost NO scholarships for international students. You can not get a student visa unless you have the money available in your bank account.
You need an F-1 student visa to study as a university student.
Getting admitted into college is pretty easy. Choose one of the "100 best public universities." Public means state or government. Private colleges like Harvard, Yale, and Stanford are too expensive and too competitive.

If Sunlight Is Free,Why Is Electrical Energy From Solar Cells Expensive?
Because solar panels cost a lot to manufacture. A solar panel that costs $3 can generate only 1 watt of power. 1 watt isn't much. 1,000 hours of using 1 watt would only cost about 10 cents from your electric company. You would need to use the panel for 30,000 hours to make $3 worth of electricity. That is over 3 years of 24 hour a day use. And since the Sun doesn't shine at night, and it is cloudy sometimes, and sunlight is not as strong in the morning and afternoon as at noon, you would need to use that panel for about 20 years to make $3 of electricity. So after 20 years it is free, all the years before that it is costing you as much or more than the electric company charges, except you paid it all at the start instead of at a rate of 10 cents every 1,000 hours.
What Material Is Used To Collect Energy From The Sun?
In Other Words,The Chemical Substance Of The Material With The Quality To Absorb And Retain Solar Energy.
Solar Energy Can Be Used for Heat and Electricity
When converted to thermal (or heat) energy, solar energy can be used to:
Heat water — for use in homes, buildings, or swimming pools
Heat spaces — inside homes, greenhouses, and other buildings
Solar energy can be converted to electricity in two ways:
Photovoltaic (PV devices) or “solar cells” change sunlight directly into electricity. Individual PV cells are grouped into panels and arrays of panels that can be used in a wide range of applications ranging from single small cells that charge calculator and watch batteries, to systems that power single homes, to large power plants covering many acres.
Concentrating Solar Power Plants generate electricity by using the heat from solar thermal collectors to heat a fluid which produces steam that is used to power the generator. Out of the 11 known concentrating solar power generating units operating in the United States at the end of 2008, 9 of these are in California, 1 in Arizona, and 1 in Nevada.
Two drawbacks of solar energy are:
The amount of sunlight that arrives at the Earth's surface is not constant. It depends on location, time of day, time of year, and weather conditions.
Because the sun doesn't deliver that much energy to any one place at any one time, a large surface area is required to collect the energy at a useful rate.
I Live In A Hot State, And I Wanna Learn Everything I Can On Solar Energy...?
First things first...there are three types of solar energy, passive, active, and photovoltaic. Photovoltaic is what most people think of when they think of solar power...they're solar panels.
Passive solar is the placement of windows, trees, etc. to maximize the heating (or cooling via blocking) that a building will recieve naturally from the sun.
Active solar is used mostly for heating and hot water generation. They're basically a system of black piping placed on a roof to generate hot water, which is then stored in the house to heat it and/or be used for consumption.
So I guess it depends on what exactly you want to do. If you want to generate electricity, look into photovoltaic. If you just want to heat your house, stick with either passive or active.
Hope that gets you heading in the right direction.
