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 air conditioning unit, washing clothing, viewing TV, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are significant, numerous home owners find that the convenience, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically lower or perhaps eliminate your electrical costs
Whether you're a property owner, service, or nonprofit, electricity expenses can comprise a large part of your month-to-month expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your energy bills and you'll still conserve a lot of money.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power expense cost savings, the typical American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the past ten years, property electricity rates have actually increased by approximately three percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and secure versus unforeseeable boosts in electricity costs. If you're an organisation or homeowner with rising and falling cash circulation, going solar also assists you much better forecast and manage your expenses.
#4 Boost your home or business worth
Numerous studies have discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater home worths and sell more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers 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 key part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price fluctuations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included 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 nation. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is an excellent way to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A typical property solar panel system will remove 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are essential components of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that opt to run properly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of customer acquiring decisions, developing goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Many house owners opt to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
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 notorious for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can determine how much electrical power will be generated, and most notably, at what rate, for at least 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.
- 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
Why Are Rain And Solar Energy Important Inputs Into A Woodland Ecosystem?
Generally rain and solar energy (sunlight) are the only inputs to a woodland ecosystem. They support the growth of the plants and trees which in turn support all the other life (e.g. bacteria, worms, nematodes, fungi, insects, animals). These other life forms also use rain and sunlight directly. Trees and plants also use nutrients in the soil to help in their growth but these nutrients are recycled when the plant or tree reached old age and dies.
Woodland ecosystems are so efficient at converting rain and sunlight into growth that it is often possible to harvest reasonable amounts of wood from such systems in a sustainable manner. Hunting can also provide sustainable food. But care is needed to avoid over-exploitation and damage to sustainability.

What Are The Alternate Energy Sources And Why Should We Use Them?
I Need To Know What The Alternate Energy Sources Are And The Good And Bad Points.....
alternative energy sources:
Something related with the ocean and the waves
No bad effects on environment unlike the others
What Is Avg Energy Consumption In A Green Home?
Answers Should Obviously Vary. And What Is The Average Cost Of Energy (Per Month Or Per Year) In A Green Home. I'M Doing Some Research For A Project That'S Going To Take Place Thank You
Hi Koko. Your answers will obviously vary a great deal, and not just because homes do, but your definition of a green home will not be the same as other peoples.
Our home has a 1.4 kw solar array and a 1kw wind turbine for electricity. We heat primarily with wood, but have solar passive heat and a propane furnace. Our hot water comes partially from a solar preheater, and the rest from a propane tankless water heater. On average, our electric bill is about $9 USD per month, and we use around $200 of propane per year for heating, cooking and hot water. I would say generally our solar, wind and wood heating make up about 80% of our homes entire energy usage, and the rest comes from the utility or fuel company in our area. Good luck in your research, and take care, Rudydoo
Why Is Solar Energy Considered To Be Renewable Energy?
Because the sun is going to come up tomorrow just like it did yesterday.
Where Does The Energy That Powers Electrical Appliances Come From?
Can Someone Tell Me?
Add natural gas and oil to the first answer. A very small amount is made from trash/garbage recycling. Visit California to see wind power and solar power in action producing electrical power.
