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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothes, seeing TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are significant, many property owners find that the convenience, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.
Leading Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably decrease or perhaps remove your electrical expenses
Whether you're a property owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can make up a large part of your monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll generate 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 energy costs and you'll still conserve a lot of money.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity costs savings, the average American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, property electricity costs have actually increased by approximately 3 percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect against unpredictable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a company or property owner with changing money circulation, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and handle your costs.
#4 Increase your home worth
Numerous studies have actually discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher home values and sell faster than non-solar houses. 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 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 key part of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price changes in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a great way to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A normal domestic photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to four lots 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 necessary parts of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding services that select to operate properly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of consumer acquiring choices, producing goodwill and improving organisation results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Many house owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy 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 business are well-known for their fluctuating and undependable electrical energy rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic mathematics, we can compute just how much electrical energy will be generated, and most significantly, at exactly what cost, for at least 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
Ethanol Vs Corn Ethanol: Were We Duped? Corn'S Highest And Best Use Is In Food Production. Ethanol From...
...Grasses And Trees (Switchgrass And Mesquite) Is Much Smarter.
Why Did The U.S. Begin Its Ethanol Experiment With Corn As A Feedstock?
The short answer is that making cellulosic ethanol wasn't feasible at the time we began producing ethanol. Only recently have we worked out reasonable ways of breaking down cellulose into sugars so that it can be fermented to fuel. I think that corn ethanol is becoming obsolete, but that it has served a useful purpose. Hopefully this will clarify the topic more:
Yes, corn ethanol is very inefficient from the standpoint that you only get back about 120% of the energy you put in. Also, it would not be economically feasible without large government subsidies. However, the type of fuel used in the process is predominantly natural gas and coal for fertilizer production and electricity respectively. So, corn ethanol does help to reduce oil consumption.
More importantly, in my opinion, is that corn ethanol is a "bridge" technology that will help our economy move toward a more efficient and economically viable next-generation biofuel.
The endpoint of this technology path is a cellulosic process that produces a fuel with better properties than ethanol (e.g. butanol or a synthetic petroleum). You can think of a cellulosic process as two steps; breaking down cellulose into sugars, and fermenting sugars into fuel. Corn ethanol has helped us to become very good at the second part, and many corn ethanol plants will be able to add-on the first step once a cellulosic process has been more fully developed.
What Are Some Energy Converter Devices?
I Need This For My Science Project Due On Friday, Please Help
Gee, Internal combustion engine (chemical to mechanical), Diesel Engine (chemical to mechanical), water wheel (water momentum to mechanical), wind turbine (air momentum to mechanical/electrical), solar photovoltaic array (photons to electricity), nuclear power plant (mass to electricity), thermopile (thermal to electricity), battery (chemical to electrical). The list is endless and I only listed things that generally are used to "create" energy, the question would also include things that consume energy!
Geothermal Energy Vs All Other Forms Of Energy (Solar, Wind, Ect)?
What Makes Geothermal Advantages Better Than Other Sources Of Energy?
geothermal is pretty much permanent.
once you set it up, the heat is constantly available.
and you don't worry about clouds over your solar panels, or night time, or the wind not blowing, or an oil spill, or drought reducing hydro availability, or what to do with the radioactive waste.
of course, what's rarely mentioned are things like heavy metals in the steam, that pollutes streams if you just dump it.
or that the "Yellowstone of the West" was all plugged up, and fenced off, so you can no longer go see the geysers that used to be there.
considering that, maybe we should fence Yellowstone NP off, plug up all the geysers, and make lots of "clean" electricity.
wouldn't that be a good idea?
that's what they did in Geyserville Calif.
How Big Of A Solar Power Setup Do I Need To Be Able To Run A Laptop & A 60W Low Energy Light Bulb Constantly?
I'M Looking For Details Such As How Many Solar Panels, Batteries, Etc. That I Would Need In Order To Run My Laptop And An Energy Efficient Light When I Am Up North Staying In A Cabin That Has No Hydro Access. I Want To Be Able To Have Power (Not Including The Laptop'S Battery) To Plug It In And Run It All Day And Night And Have A Lightbulb (Maximum 60W) Running As Well, Possibly In The Daytime If It'S Cloudy Outside, So To Be Safe I Want Enough Power In The System To Be Able To Use Those Two Things Whenever I Want, And For As Long As I Want Without Worrying About The Power Running Out.
If your laptop power consumption is considered as 50W and T5 Tube Light of 28W are considered to be used day and night(which means 24hrs),you require appx. 2000Wh Energy and considering 3days autonomy(to even work for 3 non-sun shine days),you may require as 100% solar power generating system which may cost around Rs.3Lakhs and if 50% solar and 50% hybrid system can cost Rs.2.5Lkahs(hybrid system is recommended provided average wind speed in your location is more than 2.5metres per second)
If you can check exact power consumption of your laptop(or let know the model number and make) and also let know your interest to use energy efficient LED Lighting,so as power consumtion can be brought down and hence solar/solar&wind sysetm cost....please feel free to contact me on +91 92464 75056 or [email protected]
What Will Be The Next Big Fuel Source?
We'Re Using Fossil Fuels Right Now, But What Will Be The Next Standard In Fuel And Why? Try To Consider Current Day Limitations With Ethonol, Atomic, Water, But Im Not Limiting You Guys Here.
To the person that stated that Hydrogen is simply a store of energy "Like batteries", you must consider that most fuel sources are simply a store of energy.
Nuclear power is simply releasing the stored energy that had held together an atomic nucleus. Fossil Fuels are simply stores of energy generated by the interactions between intense pressures and organic material (mostly plant matter). Solar energy is, in essence, the same as nuclear power in this way: the sun undergoes fusion, which is again a release of energy that had held together atomic nuclei. Wind is caused by an uneven heating of the atmosphere by the sun, which is again caused by fusion. All of these are extensively used in current society, even though they are just "stores of energy, like batteries".
