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 home owners to use the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, washing clothing, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are significant, lots of property owners discover that the benefit, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically reduce or even remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a property owner, business, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can comprise a large part of your monthly expenses. 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 decrease your energy expenses and you'll still save a lot of money.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy expense cost savings, the average American house owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against increasing energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical power costs have gone up by approximately three percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure against unpredictable increases in electricity costs. If you're an organisation or house owner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and manage your expenses.
#4 Boost your house worth
Several research studies have actually found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater home worths and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, need for homes equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market included 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 growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a terrific method to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A typical domestic photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 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 corporate social duty are important elements of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding services that decide to run responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of consumer acquiring choices, creating goodwill and improving company results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Numerous homeowners select to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This means that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility 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 energy companies are well-known for their changing and unreliable electrical energy rates. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can determine what does it cost? electrical energy will be generated, and most importantly, 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Much Energy Is Used Making A Solar Panel?
A100 watt solar panel retails for about $500. Chances are it costs less than a quarter of that to build. Over its lifetime it will generate somewhere around 35,000 kilowatt hours of electricity. At ten cents a kilowatt hour that is $3,500. Is it worth it? You bet.
How Can I Get My House Converted To Work On Solar Energy And Is It Expensive?
I Saw An Episode In Extreme Makeover Home Edition Were They Built A House For A Family And They Used Solar Energy To Power The House I Like That Not Just Because Is Good For The Envirorment But Because I Think Is Better For Us Too, If We Take Care Of The Earth We Live In I Think Is Going To Last More.
Hurray for caring about Mother Earth. The cool thing about converting to solar energy is that you can do it a little at a time if you want to. One of the best sources in checking out all the options is the magazine Mother Earth News. This magazine has been around for as long as I can remember and have hundreds if not thousands of articles about solar energy projects. A good library will probably have back issues and I imagine you can go on line and get some article straight from the source if you are so inclined. As with any project it is the proper installation that is key in making the project worthwhile. So you either do it yourself, right, or hire people who have many years of experience in doing these types of installations. You might also be interested to know that the government gives very nice tax right offs for folks who convert to solar energy and some states can be very generous indeed. So check out all your different sources both on line and at the library to get the best information you can. Enjoy the process it is really fascinating overall.
What Do You Believe In For Energy?
I Believe In Nuclear For Electricity And Hyrdgogen For Personal Transportation. What Do You Believe In?
Hydrogen and wind energy are not stable forms of energy. They do produce good amounts but the are subject to the environment (or climate). Solar is a good option as far as producing energy goes, however, right now the technology to produce it is so costly, that it is not possible to use on a mass grid system and like the others is still subject to daily change (I mean the sun does set)! Nuclear is a clean form of energy. The risks are huge if something was to go wrong. But in all honestly, nuclear energy plans have far better service records than any major industry. They have little to no major accidents (excluding 3-mile Island - the was a major fluke as far as statistics go). But there is always a chance with anything. I think the combination of all would serve us best for now. And recapture of emssions from stream and ethenoyl get better each day, reducing cost for all of us. Alternative fuels, such as those from corn, soy beans, algea, sugarcane are our future! Once we master the technologies of using those the use of coal, oil and natural gas will decrease alot. Just my two cents!
How Can Solar Satellite Energy Be Used To Generate Electricity?
Where Is This Energy Source Used In The Us?
Where Can This Energy Be Used?
How Is The Energy Source Transported?
What Are The Advantages Of Using It?
What Are The Disadvantages?
Thanks So Much. =)
NASA use high-efficiency Gallium-Arsenide photovoltaic arrays to generate electricity for satellites including the Space Station, Hubble telescope, spy satellites, communication satellites etc. These are about 40% efficient.
On a much larger scale such arrays could generate electricity in space, but would have to be transported back to earth perhaps in the form of a very high-energy microwave beam. The receiving station on earth would regenerate the electricity from the microwave energy.
Advantages? - zero carbon, 24/7 energy (The sun always shines in space)
Disadvantages? - the microwave beam could do serious harm if it went off-course. Also if the satellite is geo-stationary the earth's shadow would reduce the overall energy output.
How Did Germany Become A World Leader In Solar Energy Technology ?
Despite Being A Nation Of Cloudy And Sometimes Cold Weather.
in short, its because they came up w the technology though the weather least permits it.
the germans were the first to come up with the siemens reactor process technology back in mid 1900s. the siemens reactor its a highly efficient and cost, energy effective process to convert silicon to polysilicon where the end product, polysilicon are used to manufacture solar cells for the solar panels.
today, the siemens reactor is a much sought after silicon process (though there are other methods of extracting polysilicon), and so have been patented and kept under strict confidentiality, to only the big players of the solar energy industry companies from well developed countries like usa, germany, uk while china and taiwan as major stake holders are catching up in the game.
