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 utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioner, washing clothing, watching TV, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are substantial, many home owners find that the convenience, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically lower and even remove your electric costs
Whether you're a house owner, service, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a large part of your month-to-month expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your utility bills and you'll still save a lot of money.
#2 Make a great return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity expense cost savings, the average American house owner settles their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the previous 10 years, residential electricity costs have actually gone up by approximately three percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure against unpredictable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a business or house owner with ever-changing money circulation, going solar likewise assists you better projection and handle your expenditures.
#4 Boost your home or business value
Numerous research studies have actually discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and offer quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need for properties geared up 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 key component of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost changes in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is an excellent way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will get rid of three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are crucial parts of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that decide to operate responsibly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of consumer acquiring choices, creating goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Numerous house owners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar service 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 Investment
The utility companies are infamous for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and easy math, we can determine what does it cost? electricity will be created, and most importantly, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty 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.
- Low, fixed payments each month

- 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Type Of Lighs Bulbs Are Used For Solar Energy?
Please Tell Me The Most Commonly Used Ones And Please Give Me A Source.
Do you mean like small garden solar lamps? those use LED bulbs, and they come pre-installed.
If you are talking about what kind of bulbs are used by people with solar panels installed on their homes, they most likely use any kind of CFL bulb as they use much less energy than incandescent bulbs.
I hope that helps....
Starting Pv Company? What Training Is Mandatory For Applications Of Solar Panels?
Certification? I Am In Texas.
It would be better to work for an established solar company for a while, to learn the business.
I don't know what the Texas requirements are, but for California, there is one type of license for installing panels, and another for hooking them up (which is just the same as an Electrician). There is also a C-10 kind of license that does both. You need to pass a State exam to get these certifications, and have to log a certain number of practical hours in the field (for example, as an apprentice). I don't think just taking a course on solar energy qualifies a person.
There is also a NABCEP certification, which is a well-recognized credential, but it doesn't help to fulfill any legal requirements, as far as I know. A solar company may have only a few people, or none, with such a certification.
What Type Of Science Involves....?
What Type Of Science Involves, Green Energy;Like Fuel Cells, Solar Power,Etc? Also, Is Their A Way To Get Into Nanoscience, Like Manipulating Atoms To Make Different Structures Or Materials?
physics, chemistry, materials science
for some specific research topic, like manipulating atoms, I'd suggest getting a good BSc at a good university then applying to do a PhD with some group that is doing research on that - check recent publications at arxiv.org etc. Or find a commercial company like IBM that is recruiting in that area, but you'd probably have more luck getting the PhD first.
or maybe if you wait a few years you will be able to buy do-it-yourself nanotech kits from Walmart.
Does Anybody Know Anything About Roofs For Real ?
We Need A New Roof And Are Trying To Decide Between Metal And Shingle. We Wanted To Do A Metal Roof But The Estimates Have Been From 42 Thousand, 34 Thousand, 28 Thousand, 24 Thousand And Down To 22 Thousand U S Dollars For What Is Supposed To Be The Same Job With The Same Material . Is It Possible To Have Such A Huge Price Difference For The Same Job Or Are The Cheaper Companies Cutting Quality Also ? How Can We Ever Find Out ?
The Costs On A Dimensional Shingle Roof Were Close, They Were 15 Thousand, 14 Thousand, And 12 Thousand Dollars. Again, This Is Quoted For The Same Job Using The Same Materials.
We Tried The Bbb But They Didn'T Have Anything On Any Of Them That We Could Find.
If you give the dimensions, pitch, type or style or configuration of your roof. The types of materials being bid on like 1',2',or 3' width of metal panels. Standing Seam type with hidden fasteners or rolled Corrugation type with neoprene sealed screws through the surface. Are the shingles 20 year or 30 year. How are the valleys going to be done?What sort type of felt paper or barrier materials will be used under the surface. The State you are in and the terrain at your location.Perhaps some sort of ice-dam product is required. Anyway with enough data someone out here in Answer-Land could probably give you some help in understanding your situation. In our area the County Builders Board requires the tradesmen to register with them and they recieve a Number and with that Number people can inquire to see if there are any complaints from customers,etc. Check out these info. sites and remember your cost of living index is about 20% higher then many other areas.
How Do Oceans Affect Weather And Climate?
10 Points To Anyone That Answers.
Ocean currents have a ripple effect throughout the ecosystem that ends up affecting the entire world. They may seem to only affect the ocean but that is because most people do not know how to view the situation. The study of ocean currents and their effect on the environment are a vital part of oceanography.
Ocean water is viewed as belonging in one of two categories. There is surface layer water and deep waters. The surface is of course the top portion that is influenced by air, tides, waves of other environmental elements interacting with it. When you go about three hundred meters down you get to what oceanographers term the deeper waters. Friction between moving air and water provide the energy for most currents.
Deeper waves are density driven. The structure or land masses on earth as well as influence from the rays of the sun and the moon all contribute to the movement of the ocean.
The way in which ocean waves affect weather is by suffering an imbalance of unequal solar heating of the oceans and the atmosphere.... Variations in the ocean's circulation can lead to variations in the heat transport and thus lead to variations in weather. When the balance of the water cycle from ocean to cloud to rain and back again is altered in some way, the currents of the ocean act up and change the distribution of the sun's rays and thus the weather
