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 daily life: running your air conditioner, washing clothing, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, many homeowners find that the convenience, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically minimize or perhaps remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a house owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can make up a big portion of your monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity costs savings, the average American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical power rates have actually gone up by an average of three percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're an organisation or homeowner with rising and falling cash flow, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and handle your expenses.
#4 Increase your home worth
Multiple research studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, need for homes geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key part of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price changes in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a great method to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A common property solar panel system will get rid of three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are essential components of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that decide to run responsibly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of consumer getting choices, producing goodwill and enhancing service results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no money down.
Numerous homeowners opt to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
Since 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 well-known for their changing and undependable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and easy math, we can calculate just how much electrical power will be produced, 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 Is Solar Energy Harnessed (Collected) ?
You can read about solar energy and how it is created and used here:
Which Energy Sources Will Still Be Available When You Are 70?
Solar, geo-thermal, wind, hydro, various fossil fuels, nuclear (fission and hopefully fusion by then), bio-waste fuels.
How Many Solar Panels Do I Need To Run A Pump?
I Plan To Buy Solar Panels Of The Following Configuration:
Sun Force 39110 / 123 Watt - 7 Amps
To Run Through An Inverter, To Produce The 110V I Need To Run The Pump During The Day.
The Pump Is 110V / 7.5 Amps / 0.5 Hp
My Question Is, How Many Solar Panels Would I Need To Run The Pump?
Are you sure you want those panels? It would probably be more cost-effective to get higher-wattage panels. From those specs, it sounds like you need about 800 watts of panels. That's 4 200-watt panels.
I would skip the inverter, and look for a pump that runs off DC. In fact, many AC motors will run off DC, although that's a trial-and-error sort of thing that no one will guarantee. Typically you would lower the voltage input to do so, so a 110-volt AC induction motor would run off maybe 70-80 volts DC, to avoid burning out the motor. But if you get a pump rated for DC, then you'll certainly have something that works right.
What Is A Distributed Resource?
What Is A Distributed Resource (In Terms Of The Environment) Vs A Point Source? I Know Biomass Is A Distributed Resource But What Is The Definition Of &Quot;Distributed Resource&Quot;?
Distributed resource would be an energy source that can be harnessed (effectively) in almost all corners of the world, and doesn't need special conditions to be cost-effective (for instance solar energy is only costs effective in areas with plenty of sun, wind energy in areas with plenty of wind, etc, while biomass, in its many forms, can be successfully harnessed in almost all parts of the world.
What Do You Think Of The Northern Cape?
What'S Your View Of The Northern Cape, With Regards To It'S People It'S Culture, And It'S Three Big Towns\Cities Kimberley,Kuruman And Upington Which Have More That Half The Northern Cape 'S Population And What Do You Think Is The Province'S Future And It'S Future Role In South Africa
I live in the Northern Cape, though not in any of the "big 3" cities.
Its anything but hot & dusty now - in fact it has been raining at least twice a week for months!
It will always have a low population.
Agriculture is the driver of the economy while mining is slowly becoming less significant as the mines close down when they are "mined out". I think it could become a major contributor to renewable energy in future - wind farms and solar energy - perhaps nuclear along the coast.
Karoo villages are becoming quite popular as "getaway" destinations for city folks from particularly the Western Cape - old cottages sell for high prices to these "city refugees".
