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 utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothes, seeing TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing 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 considerable, lots of property owners discover that the convenience, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.
Leading Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably lower or perhaps remove your electric expenses
Whether you're a house owner, business, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can comprise a large part of your regular monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll create 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 lower your utility costs and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.
#2 Earn a terrific 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 considerable electricity bill cost savings, the typical American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy rates. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical energy prices have increased by approximately 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure versus unforeseeable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're an organisation or homeowner with fluctuating capital, going solar also assists you better projection and handle your expenses.
#4 Boost your home or business value
Several research studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, demand for homes geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price changes in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent way to lower 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 normal residential photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to four heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are crucial parts of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that opt to operate responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of customer acquiring choices, producing goodwill and improving company outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Many homeowners decide to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This means that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electrical power-- 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 Financial investment
The utility companies are well-known for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and easy math, we can calculate what does it cost? electricity will be generated, and most notably, at what price, for a minimum of 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

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
How Solar Energy Use In Thermal Generation?
usually solar energy is used to heat water(or any other liquid with heat transfer characteristics)
so for example ,solar thermal power plants,they use sun to heat the water till it becomes steam under high pressure to turn on turbines which generate electricity.
Also thermal water heaters in homes use the same idea where sometimes vacuum tubes are used where water passes through them,These tubes are designed such that they absorb the solar energy (photons with energy transformed to heat) but in the mean time they dont dissipate heat back to atmosphere
How Would Solar Power Benefit The Sociologist?
Ask yourself these questions:
How did the "discovery" of fire benefit Society?
How would Solar Power then benefit Society?
What far reaching effects could Solar Power have if used instead of Oil/Coal to produce energy for power? Would this then create more freedom for Society?
And as YOU are part of this Society...How would this affect you?
The answers to these questions will definitely show you how YOU will benefit from Solar Power.
Assuming of course that YOU are the "Sociologist".
I Need As Much Information About Solar Energy Possible. Can You Give Me Some Information And Some Source Links
I Need To Know:
What Solar Energy Is, How It Gets The Copper Wire/Magnet To Spin To Produce Electricity, Where In The World Is It Used, How Expensive Or Cheap It Is To Harness, What Companies And/Or Governments Are Researching This Type Of Energy, And The Problems With This Energy Harnessed From Fossil Fuels. I Hope I Can Choose A Great Best Answer!!
Solar power is the technology of obtaining usable energy from the light of the Sun. Solar energy has been used in many traditional technologies for centuries and has come into widespread use where other power supplies are absent, such as in remote locations and in space.
Solar energy is currently used in a number of applications:
* Heat (hot water, building heat, cooking)
* Electricity generation (photovoltaics, heat engines)
* Desalination of seawater.
Its application is spreading as the environmental costs and limited supply of other power sources such as fossil fuels are realized.

How Did The Cycling Of Solar Energy Through The Biosphere Begin?
Photosynthesis And Cellular Respiration Are The Same Chemical Reactions Headed In Opposite Directions. Photosynthesis Takes Carbon Dioxide And Water And Produces Carbohydrates And Oxygen. Cellular Respiration Takes Carbohydrates And Oxygen And Produces Carbon Dioxide And Water. Respiration Is The Exothermic Reaction. Photosynthesis Requires The Input Of Energy From The Sun In Order To Proceed. In The Economy Of Ecology, Why Are Both Reactions Necessary? How Did The Cycling Of Solar Energy Through The Biosphere Begin? How Can It Be Best Maintained Today?
--Please Help Me Understand This Alittle Better.
First, to be precise, nobody actually knows for sure. We do not even know exactly when life, as distinct from non-living chemical activity, began. Prior to life on earth, the elemental chemical composition of the earth was constant, same as now, but the molecular chemical composition was different. There was likely no free oxygen, the predominant gaseous materials likely being water vapor, methane, and ammonia. Once the average earth surface temperature dropped below the boiling point of water, life as we know it became possible. It is believed that various solar energy and atmospheric effects caused complex chemicals to form in puddles at the boundary between land and sea, and that, over time, these puddles became the first primitive living cells. Initial metabolism would have to have been based on methane, ammonia, water, and carbonates from rocks. Eventually, early bacteria-like creatures changed the atmosphere into something more similar to the present one, and this enabled the development of sugar formation (CO2 plus H2O plus energy) with oxygen as a byproduct, and the metabolism of sugar (CH2OHx plus O2 yields energy) with oxygen to obtain energy and get back the CO2 and H2O. There is evidence that this process was well under way 2 billion years ago.
To be clear, neither photosynthesis nor cellular respiration are necessary in any cosmic sense - they are features of certain life forms that developed somehow on earth and exist to this day. Without these reactions, those life forms would not exist, but perhaps others could and would. In any case, the biosphere exists because there is solar energy, which has been irradiating the earth since the formation of the solar system. Life has developed the ability to trap solar energy and use it for plant growth, which in turn supports animal life, which closes the mass and energy loop by providing equal and opposite chemical activity. Every output from every living thing is available as input for other living things, and over time, life develops to exploit all thermodynamic opportunities, no matter how slim or rare. There is no scientific answer to "why"; these are just observed phenomena, which exist, period, whether we understand them or not, whether we can explain them or not, whether they help us out or not.
Now the big question -"how can the balance of oxidation-reduction best be maintained today?" The answer is for man not to engage in oxidation at a greater rate than he can engage in reduction. The burning of fossil fuel at the greatest possible rate has doubled the atmospheric CO2 percentage (from 0.04 to 0.08) in a century and a half, doubling infrared absorption by CO2, raising average surface temperatures a degree or two so far. Those fossil fuels were produced as life forms when the earth was much hotter due to much higher CO2 levels, and also sea level was higher. Fossilization fixed huge amounts of carbon that would otherwise have participated in the greenhouse effect - the earth has been cooler since, on average, than it otherwise would have been, with the resulting accumulation of land ice and the accompanying lowering of average sea level. However, if the greenhouse effects were eliminated completely, the earth would be too far from the sun to have any liquid water at all. It is the presence of CO2 and methane in the atmosphere, trapping the re-radiation of thermal energy derived from absorption of solar visible energy, that heats the surface of the earth enough for water to exist as a liquid and for life as we know it to be possible this far from the sun.
The bottom line is that all natural systems include reciprocal effects, whereas many man made systems do not, resulting in the buildup of some by product (pollution, garbage, CO2, etc.) All human systems must be arranged to recycle, period. Processes that cannot affordably be matched to a reverse process have to be eliminated - the burning of coal and oil for heat energy have to be eliminated because it is thermodynamically impossible to economically reverse combustion - burning is just too exothermic.
There are several "inexhaustible" sources of energy to be tapped - solar radiation, geothermal heat, nuclear fission, tidal flows, and the secondary effects of uneven solar radiation (wind and falling water.) There are technologies for all of these that are feasible now, and which would be cheap enough to compete with coal given sufficient economies of scale and sufficient "fossil fuel combustion taxes" to discourage coal burning. Note that "clean coal" from a global warming perspective cannot exist, given the exothermia of combustion and the impossibility of fixing the CO2 produced by burning at an equal opposite rate.
