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 daily life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothes, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are substantial, lots of home owners find that the benefit, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically decrease or perhaps remove your electric costs
Whether you're a homeowner, company, or nonprofit, electricity expenses can comprise a big part of your monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate totally 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 energy costs and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity costs cost savings, the typical American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus increasing energy expenses
Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, residential electricity rates have gone up by approximately three percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unpredictable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a service or house owner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise assists you much better forecast and manage your expenses.
#4 Boost your residential or commercial property value
Multiple studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater property values and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial element of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate changes in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A common property photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are important elements of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that decide to run responsibly. Services are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of customer buying decisions, creating goodwill and improving company outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving 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 house owners pick to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar supplier 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 Investment
The energy companies are notorious for their changing and undependable electrical energy prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can determine what does it cost? electrical energy will be created, and most significantly, at what rate, 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
- $0 down for installation
- Customers only pay for the solar energy that they use
- Customer pays for the system upfront and owns the 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.

Is It Possible To Use Solar Energy To Power An Oven?
My Project In School Is To Design An Hybrid Solar Oven That Uses Pv, Battery, Charge Controller And Inverter. Please Advice.
An ordinary electric oven used a lot of power, as much as 10000 watts (10 kW). This means a huge solar array, a huge set of batteries, and a large inverter, all very expensive.
The problem is that oven use is intermittent. You need it for an hour or two, then it sits unused for a day or two. That means the average power is low, perhaps 1/10th the the above number. So you heed a large amount of batteries to sustain it for those two hours. A large auto battery stores about 1 kW for 1 hour, so to provide 10 kW for 2 hours, you would need 20 of these large batteries.
Now for an oven only, no top burners, you may be able to cut down the power level, perhaps as low as 1 kW, which reduces the power requirements, although it makes an oven of limited usefulness.
A solar array must be used all the time there is sun in order to pay back the large cost investment, many thousands of dollars. Using it only to power an oven, which may go for days without being used, is very uneconomical. That is why solar arrays are intended to power the entire house, not just one appliance. In fact, even that can result in unused power, so good systems are designed so that you sell unused power back to the power company, which greatly reduces the need for batteries, as you are then using the power company for energy storage, buying from them for high peak power needs, and selling to them when you have excess power.
Are Big Oils Days Numbered?
No. The big oil companies are behemoths, and unless they really blow it, (as have GM, et al) will continue to do very well. They are "energy" companies. They will simply move to supplying other forms of energy. And there will always be a need for oil for lubricants, etc.
Ultimately, we will of necessity(economy, global warming, etc) be compelled to move to nucelar energy. That is why the price of uranium has gone from under $8 to over to over $91per pound since 2001, without a single pull back, and the ascent continues! Huge profits have been made in the metal itself and in the companies who explore for, develop, and mine it.
Uranium is the only realistic source of energy in the quantities required by world civilization today, and the demands for energy in China, India, et al are just getting started! Also, global warming demands that we stop burning things to produce energy.
Ethanol is a political charade. We are burning food. Ask the poor in Mexico who now pay through the nose for the corn meal to make their tacos. And, when you consider the oil used for fertilizer and to run the tractors raising the corn, we use more fossil fuel to produce the corn than would have been used to produce the same amount of energy directly from the fossil fuels(oil, coal and natural gas).
Wind and solar just can't supply the quantities of energy needed at a price we can afford---to say nothing of the aesthetic complaints.
I am happy to learn of the vehicles offered by Phoenix Motors and support all hydogen fuel cell and hydrogen fuel based technology. The technology is already here for these types of vehicles. It's the infrastructure (fuelling stations, etc.) that is absent. And the key will be to produce the hydrogen, and thus, the electricity necessary to produce the hydrogen. Ultimately this electricity must come from nuclear power plants, that is, from URANIUM. Otherwise we are back to square one---burning oil, coal, and natural gas to produce electricity and from the electricity, the hydrogen.
So the hydrogen, hydrogen fuel cell and electric vehicle technology are great and the wave of the future, but the bottom line is we must move to nuclear to produce the bulk of our energy/electricity in order to utilize those technologies. Otherwise we continue to get it from burning things---oil, coal, natural gas, wood, trash, etc. All of which produce CO2, pollution, and global warming.
Unfortunately, the US lags the world in getting on the nuclear band wagon. Get with it! Spread the word! Light the fire under our leaders to get beyond greed, and do what needs to be done!
Science Help With Solar Energy!?
What Are Some Advantages Of Solar Energy?
Solar cells are totally silent. They can extract energy from the sun without making a peep. Now imagine the noise that the giant machines used to drill for and pump oil make!
Solar energy is non-polluting. Of all advantages of solar energy over that of oil, this is, perhaps, the most important. The burning of oil releases carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases and carcinogens into the air.
Solar cells require very little maintenance (they have no moving parts that will need to be fixed), and they last a long time.
Solar Panel Costs And Sizes?
I Am Doing A School Project And We Need To Find The Cost Of Solar Panels For Our School. The Problem Is I Don'T Know What Size The System Needs To Be. Is It 1000 Watts Or 1000000 Watts?
Also Can You Find The Cost Of The System?
Without them providing the amount of energy your school uses then it's impossible to know how many panels you would need. Just phrase it in the form of how much space or how many panels would be needed to create (X) amount of power. Ask the amount the school uses then go from there. Let's put it this way, with today's solar technology you would probably have to cover most of the roof of the school with solar panels and it still wouldn't be enough to run the school entirely. Never mind the cost of out-fitting a building of that size, it would take far to many years to pay off and would probably never offset the cost of electricity they are paying now considering maintenance, upkeep and replacement costs associated with these systems. If it was that easy and cost effective, they would have already done it. Make sure you squeeze that into your report somewhere. Find out how much electricity costs in your area, its on any electric bill, it should show the cost per Kw/h somewhere (If separated by peak time and non-peak time, your school would be peak time). After you get that and how much the school uses, do the math and include a graph comparison showing the cost of both. You should be able to find the costs of solar panels online somewhere. Do a side by side comparison from start up cost, upkeep and all versus using the current source. Good luck on your report.
