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 clothes, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are significant, numerous home owners find that the benefit, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically reduce or even remove your electric expenses
Whether you're a property owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can comprise a big portion of your regular monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll create free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your utility costs and you'll still save a great deal of money.
#2 Make a great return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity costs savings, the typical American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the past 10 years, domestic electricity prices have gone up by approximately 3 percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a business or property owner with rising and falling capital, going solar also helps you much better projection and manage your costs.
#4 Increase your house value
Several studies have actually discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and offer quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, demand for properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase 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 capability to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate fluctuations in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
According to 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 jobs in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a terrific method to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A common property solar panel system will remove 3 to four heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

Sustainability and business social duty are essential components of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding services that decide to run responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of customer acquiring decisions, creating goodwill and improving business outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving 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 money down.
Many house owners opt to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
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 energy companies are notorious for their varying and unreliable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate just how much electricity will be produced, and most notably, at what price, for at least 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.
- 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 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 Are Rain And Solar Energy Important Inputs Into A Woodland Ecosystem?
Generally rain and solar energy (sunlight) are the only inputs to a woodland ecosystem. They support the growth of the plants and trees which in turn support all the other life (e.g. bacteria, worms, nematodes, fungi, insects, animals). These other life forms also use rain and sunlight directly. Trees and plants also use nutrients in the soil to help in their growth but these nutrients are recycled when the plant or tree reached old age and dies.
Woodland ecosystems are so efficient at converting rain and sunlight into growth that it is often possible to harvest reasonable amounts of wood from such systems in a sustainable manner. Hunting can also provide sustainable food. But care is needed to avoid over-exploitation and damage to sustainability.

What Are The Alternate Energy Sources And Why Should We Use Them?
I Need To Know What The Alternate Energy Sources Are And The Good And Bad Points.....
alternative energy sources:
Something related with the ocean and the waves
No bad effects on environment unlike the others
What Is Avg Energy Consumption In A Green Home?
Answers Should Obviously Vary. And What Is The Average Cost Of Energy (Per Month Or Per Year) In A Green Home. I'M Doing Some Research For A Project That'S Going To Take Place Thank You
Hi Koko. Your answers will obviously vary a great deal, and not just because homes do, but your definition of a green home will not be the same as other peoples.
Our home has a 1.4 kw solar array and a 1kw wind turbine for electricity. We heat primarily with wood, but have solar passive heat and a propane furnace. Our hot water comes partially from a solar preheater, and the rest from a propane tankless water heater. On average, our electric bill is about $9 USD per month, and we use around $200 of propane per year for heating, cooking and hot water. I would say generally our solar, wind and wood heating make up about 80% of our homes entire energy usage, and the rest comes from the utility or fuel company in our area. Good luck in your research, and take care, Rudydoo
Why Is Solar Energy Considered To Be Renewable Energy?
Because the sun is going to come up tomorrow just like it did yesterday.
Where Does The Energy That Powers Electrical Appliances Come From?
Can Someone Tell Me?
Add natural gas and oil to the first answer. A very small amount is made from trash/garbage recycling. Visit California to see wind power and solar power in action producing electrical power.
