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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c, cleaning clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, many property owners find that the benefit, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Leading Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably minimize or even eliminate your electric expenses
Whether you're a homeowner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a big portion of your month-to-month expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility costs and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Earn a great return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity bill savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy rates. In the past 10 years, property electrical energy rates have actually increased by approximately 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and protect versus unforeseeable boosts in electricity costs. If you're an organisation or house owner with rising and falling cash circulation, going solar also assists you much better forecast and manage your expenditures.
#4 Boost your house value
Numerous research studies have actually discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater property worths and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial part of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price variations in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a terrific method to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A typical domestic photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are important components of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that decide to operate properly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of customer purchasing choices, producing goodwill and improving business outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Many homeowners select to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This means that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
As of 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 well-known for their fluctuating and undependable electrical power rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and basic math, we can calculate just how much electricity will be produced, and most significantly, at exactly 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.

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
Why Aren't Renewable Sources Of Energy Being Used?
If They Are Readily Available?
Any Ideas Welcome =)
There are many reasons:
1. Political reluctance as political parties collect donations from the coal industry which keeps pushing "Clean coal", clean coal is more fantasy than reality. 80% of electricity is derived from coal power stations. Most coal power stations do not use clean coal technology.
2. Stablished energy industries would lose jobs but new ones would be created if renewable sources were used. New infrastructures to supply alternative energy would also need to be built.
3. About 80% of petrol price goes to government tax revenue so why would they.
4. Petrol is cheaper to buy than bottled water.
5. Car makers were not being encouraged to go green under the previous federal governement. The trend is to go Hybrid but the future is full electric. Car makers need to go further with green power. Car companies and petrol companies monopolise the fuel travel market so alternative suppliers cannot get in.
6. Not enough people vote for the green party in the lower house of parliament and at all levels of government.
7. People are very slow and reluctant for different reasons on taking up the federal government's rebate of $8000 to install solar panels on their house.
8. Renewable sources of energy are being used but the uptake is very slow despite the threat of climate change and peak oil.
9. Alternative sources of energy such as sunlight is available until the sun burns out unless it is cloudy. Water is limited. Food derived fuels are limited. Wind is limited and so on. All energy sources are originally derived from sunlight. Without sunlight we would die.
10. Alternative energy suppliers such as windfarms were and are still not encouraged financially or otherwise to locate in Australia by Australian governments at all levels.
These are just some of the reasons, there are probably more.
Which One Of The Energy Sources Should Be Used As The Primary Energy Source For San Diego?
Fossil Fuels,Nuclear Fission,Solar,Wind,Hydroelectric,Geothermal,Biomass,Tidal
Explain Why That Particular Energy Source Is Preferred Over All The Others. (Describe This In Terms Of Practicality, Environmental Concerns, And Cost Effectiveness.)
Solar Energy is the cheapest and most efficient resource...
How Is Your Energy ”Harnessed”?
I have battery banks in the basement charging from solar panels. I have a wind generator in working progress but has a few bugs yet, but hope to have it straightened out soon. Hope this is what you are referring to?
What Companies Do Solar Energy Research?
I'M Looking Into Companies That Are Researching Solar/Renewable Energies, Particularly In California. What Companies Are Doing A Lot Of R&D In This Area?
These are Silicon Valley solar companies that are doing R&D. I don't know if you are looking for a company to apply at or looking to invest. Best of luck in any case.
You can find a link to each companies website from the article they were listed in:
Are Solar Energy Equipments Commonly Used In Las Vegas? Is It Really Cheaper Than Gas?
Solar Energy used to be prohibitively expensive, with only the well heeled able to afford it, but recently that has changed. In the stimulus package signed by President Bush, the bottom line Federal Tax Credit was changed from $2000.00 to 30% of the cost of the system and it can be written off over 3 years. All of a sudden, solar became affordable. The ROI went from 12-15 years to 6-10 years. Many utilities are offering rebates on the systems as well.
THe solar panels themselves are warrantied for 25 years, but panels installed in the 70s are still working. The inverters have a warranty of 10 years and are very hardy.
You do need to clean them when they get dirty ( you can usually get this done in a service agreement with the installer).
Stay clear of the companies that want to lease you a system. It sounds good, but at the end of the day, they still own the system and when your lease is up, if you don't resign a new one, they come and yank the system.
Where I live, contractors are now building the homes with solar panels installed. It is what people are demanding.
Make sure you get at least 3 quotes and check the LICENSED contractor out first with the BBB and the State Contractors Licensing Board. Good contractors will encourage you to do so.
I hope this helped.
