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 property owner to use the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c unit, washing clothing, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, numerous property owners find that the benefit, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically decrease or perhaps remove your electrical bills
Whether you're a house owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can make up a large portion of your month-to-month expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility bills and you'll still save a great deal of loan.
#2 Make an excellent return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy costs savings, the average American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the previous ten years, residential electrical power rates have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and protect against unforeseeable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a company or homeowner with rising and falling capital, going solar also helps you much better projection and manage your expenditures.
#4 Boost your home value
Multiple research studies have discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater home values and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key part of accomplishing energy self-reliance 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 help your regional economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A typical domestic solar panel system will get rid of 3 to four loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are essential parts of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that select to run properly. Services are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective driver of consumer getting choices, developing goodwill and enhancing service results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no money down.
Numerous house owners decide to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This means that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The utility companies are infamous for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can compute what does it cost? electricity will be produced, and most importantly, at what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed 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
- 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.
