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 resident to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, cleaning clothes, seeing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, lots of homeowners find that the convenience, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Leading Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically lower and even remove your electric expenses
Whether you're a property owner, business, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can comprise a large part of your monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your utility bills and you'll still save a lot of money.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power expense cost savings, the average American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the previous ten years, domestic electrical energy costs have actually gone up by an average of three percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unpredictable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a service or homeowner with changing cash flow, going solar likewise helps you better projection and manage your costs.
#4 Boost your residential or commercial property worth
Several research studies have found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher home values and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, need for homes equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key element of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate changes in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market included tasks 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 development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is an excellent method to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A normal residential photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to four loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are very important parts of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding organisations that decide to operate responsibly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of customer buying decisions, producing goodwill and improving service results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Numerous house owners pick to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This means that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
Since 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 infamous for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can determine how much electricity will be created, and most importantly, at what price, for at least the next Twenty 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 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.
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
What Size Solar Panel Would I Need To Run A Rotating Fan?
I Want To Put A Fan Outside For My Dogs This Summer And Have It Running During The Day. What Kind Of Solar Panel Should I Get And Are Those Carried In Stores Like Home Depot And Lowe'S?
you'll have to experiment. biggest mistake people make is having a panel that simply doesn't put out enough power to overcome the fan's friction. second-biggest mistake: thinking a 12v DC panel can drive a standard bedroom fan intended to run off 110v 60 Hz AC. no can do.
you must match the fan to the panel output, or use an inverter or similar device.
Solar Energy Help!!!?
Okay, For School, I Have To Find A Way Of Creating Energy Other Using Crude Oil So I Chose Solar Energy. My Questions Are:
What Is Solar Energy?
Why Should We Use It?
Solar energy converts our inexhaustible supply of sunlight into energy.
This is accomplished primarily through the use of either photovoltaics or solar reflection technologies. We should use it because it's a "green" energy source. It's essentially non-polluting, its "fuel" is 100% free, and until the Sun goes out, it will always be there.
(1) Solar photovoltaics (i.e. solar cells). These are thin pieces of carefully designed silicon with a proper sequence of wire embedded in them, pressed between layers of opaque black plastic on the "back" side and transparent plastic on the "front" side A photon (a "piece" of light) comes in, and knocks an electron out of the silicon wafer. This electron shoots its way around a loop at near the speed of light, and ends up right back where it started. This creates an itty-bitty electrical current through electromagnetic induction. Now, you take that one electron and multiply it by billions of electrons -- you end up with a significant amount of energy.
(2) Solar reflection. A series of mirrors (flat, parabolic, etc.) controlled by a computer focus sunlight on a tower that contains a fluid medium and turbine. Now, we're not talking about water. We're talking about something like... sodium metal. But focusing enough energy on on this sodium metal turns it into liquid sodium, which moves with massive thermal and kinetic energy. This drives turbines through a series of heat exchangers (usually) that drive common induction turbines.
(3) I'll add this one, it isn't common, but it's real. They use long lines of continuous mirrors that have been bent to focus light on a pipe containing a fluid (generally water in this case). Heating the fluid causes it to expand, which causes it to move within the design. This fluid uses direct flow to spin turbine blades and create energy as with solar reflection induction turbines.
(4) Also... a 2-stroke Sterling generator is an old technology that powers what is essentially a solar-powered internal combustion engine. They're very inefficient, you'll never be driving around using one.
Every single energy source you'll ever, with the sole exception of "solar cells" uses a straight-up induction turbine like we've been using for over a century at this point. More advanced, but the exact same technology. Wind, solar reflection, wave, current, tidal, geothermal, hydroelectric, *nuclear*.... all use the same turbine technology. Only photovoltaics are different.
What Makes Solar Energy Green? Why Is It Good?
It produces no waste, no carbon dioxide, it's infinite (we aren't going to 'use up' the sun), and the source (the sun) is free.
Solar Energy - Science Help!?
Ok, So I Am Doing A Science Project On Solar Power And I Have Looked Everywhere For Answers To My Questions, But I Can'T Find Them In A Way I Understand! Here Are The Questions -
What Is Solar Power?
How Does It Produce Energy?
What Energy Transformations Are Involved?
Explain If This Energy Generation Is Non - Renewable Or Renewable?
Why Is This Energy Generation Good/What Are Its Positives/Advantages?
What Are The Negative Things About Solar Energy?
Please Help Me!! :(
There are two kinds of solar energy photovoltaic and thermal (3 if you consider photosynthesis)
Photovoltaic converts light directly into electricity (solar panels) thermal works by using concentrated suns energy to heat a substance and transform it into a gas which drives a turbine/generator.
Photovoltaic, heat energy and chemical energy (photosynthesis)
Yes it is renewable as long as we have a sun.
It is good because the sun is free.
It is bad because it is costly, not on demand (the sun doesn't always shine) and it uses up huge area's of land.
Where Does Energy Come From To Make Wind, Waves..?
I Know Waves Create The Wind, But Going Far Enough Back, Is Everything Moving On Earth Created By The Moon Pulling On The Earth??
Solar heating is the primary reason that mass in the atmosphere and hydrosphere moves. Most wave action in water is caused by the movement of wind over the surface of the water bodies, not the other way around.
