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 a/c, cleaning clothes, watching TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, lots of home owners discover that the benefit, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.
Leading Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically decrease or even remove your electric bills
Whether you're a house owner, business, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can comprise a large part of your regular monthly 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 reduce your utility bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the finest methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity expense savings, the typical American property owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy rates. In the previous ten years, residential electrical power rates have gone up by approximately 3 percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a company or house owner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise helps you better projection and handle your expenses.
#4 Increase your home worth
Several studies have actually found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher home values and offer quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, demand for homes geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key part of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost variations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a terrific way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A common domestic solar panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are very important parts of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that opt to run responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of consumer getting choices, producing goodwill and enhancing business results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Numerous house owners opt to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This means that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar supplier 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 energy companies are well-known for their fluctuating and undependable electricity costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate just how much electrical power will be created, and most notably, at what cost, for at least the next Twenty 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
What Is More Environmentally Friendly
A Car That Gets 23 Mpg Or A Hybrid?
What's more environmentally friendly? That's the crux of the whole hybrid versus alternative energy issue. I love it when I hear people bragging about having an electric or a hydrogen powered car and how they are trying to save the planet. They don't think about were the power comes from to create that energy. Coal burning power plants are not the cleanest things out there. The only way to get a true environmentally friendly vehicle is if you use solar, wind, geothermal, or hydro-electric power to recharge the vehicle. And hybrid vehicles that are a combination of small engine and batteries might get great mileage but what do you do with the old batteries (that are toxic) when you have to replace them?
As one person suggested scooters get great mileage. The only problem is they have less emission regulations on the engines then cars do and can possible pollute more then a compact car. So are you really doing more harm then good? Makes you wander what all the hype is about, don't it?
How Much Energy Will Be Released By Two Neutron Stars Colliding?
Say Two Neutron Stars With 1.4 Solar Masses Collide Head-On At 1% The Speed Of Light.
How Much Kinetic Energy Will Be Released?
Also, Will It Cause Any Nuclear Reaction In Addition To The Kinetic Energy?
kinetic energy = ( 1 / 2 x mass ) x velocity^2
mass = 1.4 solar masses = 2.784 x 10^30 Kg
velocity = c * 0.01 = 2 997 924 Km/s = 1.07925264 × 10^10 Km/h
Using equation above you can calculate kinetic energy
Ek = ( (1 / 2) * (2.784 * 10^30) ) * (1.07925264 * 10^10)^2
Ek = 1.6213824752381816832 × 10^50 N
How Do Hydrogen Fuel Cells Compare To Solar Or Wind Energy As An Alternative Energy Source?
Solar and wind energy are alternative sources of energy, whereas hydrogen fuel cells are not exactly a source of energy at all, unless you have pure hydrogen. You see, hydrogen is a fuel, just like gasoline, except with no emissions other than water. The problem is that hydrogen is not abundant on earth, and must be derived from water. It takes just as much energy to do this as the hydrogen produces when used as fuel, so it is not really a source of energy, but rather a mode of transporting energy. Any source of energy, however, may be used to get hydrogen from water, including solar and wind.
How To Charge A Pure Electric Car At Night Using Photovoltaic Panels?
My Photovoltaic Panels (3Kw) Are Off Grid System, With 10 Deep Cycle Batteries Provide Electricity At Night.
I Don'T Use Aircond Nor High Power Electric Cooker. So 10 Deep Cycle Batteries Are Enough To Light Up The Energy Saver Light Bulbs, Some Fans A Tv And A Laptop.
I Tried To Charge The Electric Car At Night, Than Every Light Went Blackout (Except Laptop, Because It Has Its Own Battery Of Course). Disconnect The The Cable From Electric Car, Press The Reset Of The Charge Controller And The Light Came Back.
What Do I Need To Charge The Electric Car At Night? So That I Can Proud To Say That My Electric Car Is Zero Carbon Emission? I Can'T Charge The Electric Car During Day Time Because During Day Time I Have To Drive The Car Around Town.
An electric car is a power hog. It probably uses more than most home central A/Cs.
The electric Nissan Leaf has a 24 kWh lithium ion battery. A 3 kW solar array could produce a little over 20 kWH on a perfectly clear day, if they are pointed due south at an angle equal to your latitude. Because charging a lithium ion battery is only about 80-90% efficient and charging a lead acid battery (which I assume your deep cycle batteries are) is only 50-95% efficient (obviously you need to research lead acid batteries to get the most efficient ones with such a large range of possibly efficiency), it would take about 33-60 kWH of solar power to fully charge it. So you would need more solar panels and I suspect a lot more deep cycle batteries. Of course you probably do not completely drain the battery on your car every day, so 20 kWH is probably enough for daily driving if you only make short trips, but it would leave zero left over for lights and TV and refrigerator.
Why Does John Mccain Imply That Nuke Energy Is Safe Just B/C He Used To Sail Around On Nuclear Reactor Ships?
Have You Taken A Look At The Guy? I Know He's Near 90, But I Think The Radiation Is What Causes That Permanent Crackled Smile And The Need To Call Everyone "My Friends."
Navy ships have used them for nearly 60 years with a great safety record....other countries like France have been using them for decades and use the approach of only building 3-4 designs rather than the US model of letting various construction companies come up with their own varied complex designs which leads to many flaws and inconsistencies.
Molten Salt Reactors are even safer.
Molten Salt Reactors (MSRs) - a type of Nuclear Reactor
The most interesting application of molten salt technology was the development of the Molten Salt (Nuclear) Reactor (MSR). Originally developed to power a deep penetration bomber for targets in the Soviet Union during the early Cold War (1946 - 1962)4, it is a remarkable, yet virtually unknown reactor. Part of the problem was the limited geographical experience of the MSR as both operating MSRs were built only at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), near Knoxville, Tennessee, USA.
The first MSR was the 1954, 100-hour operation of the Aircraft Reactor Experiment (ARE) at ORNL5. Its sole purpose was to demonstate the then unheard of notion of operating a reactor at red heat (~750° C; ~1,550° F) with a molten fuel and coolant consisting of melted fluoride salts (sodium fluoride, NaF; zirconium fluoride, ZrF 4; and UF4 [enriched in 235U])6. The second MSR was a civilian power plant prototype, the Molten Salt Reactor Experiment (MSRE)7. Hugely successful, it was ignored by the US Atomic Energy Commission (US AEC), which had decided to favor the Liquid Metal Fast Breeder Reactor (LMFBR). The Director of ORNL, Dr. Alvin Weinberg, pushed for the MSR, but was fired for his efforts 8.
The notable features of this reactor are:
Does not produce weapons grade plutonium
Has inherent non-proliferation features
Thousands of years of energy
Simplified fuel cycle (no fuel elements nor reprocessing required)
Its wastes are simpler and less toxic than current nuclear wastes
Only hundreds of years of storage versus thousands for the current wastes
Can completely destroy military plutonium
Can burn the existing wastes (spent fuel)!
Higher thermal efficiencies (operates at a "Red Heat"; ~700° C [1,260° F])
The reality is that nuclear power can be safe and plentiful while also being a clean form of electrical energy production.
And recent re-evaluations of oil deposits in North Dakota fields shows that they contain billions of barrels of oil...much more than previously thought.
The entire US electrical needs could be handled by a solar farm of a hundred miles square. The US can be entirely energy independant....it's just a matter of political will and getting the voters riled up enough to force politicians to do something rather than cow-towing to the oil and coal industries for re-election campaign funds...
