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 conditioner, cleaning clothes, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, lots of residents discover that the convenience, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Leading Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably lower and even remove your electric bills
Whether you're a property owner, business, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can make up a large portion of your monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your energy expenses and you'll still save a lot of loan.
#2 Earn a fantastic return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power costs savings, the average American property owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, property electrical power rates have increased by approximately 3 percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure against unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a company or homeowner with fluctuating money circulation, going solar also helps you much better forecast and handle your costs.
#4 Boost your home or business worth
Multiple studies have actually found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial part of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate variations in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, 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 nation. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A common property solar panel system will remove three to 4 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 obligation are essential parts of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding organisations that opt to run properly. Businesses are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of consumer acquiring choices, developing goodwill and enhancing business results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no money down.
Lots of property owners pick to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
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 energy business are well-known for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can compute how much electrical energy will be generated, and most notably, at what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed 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
- 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.
