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 daily life: running your air conditioning unit, cleaning clothes, viewing TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, numerous residents find that the benefit, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly lower or perhaps remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a property owner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can make up a large part of your month-to-month costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.
#2 Earn a great return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy bill cost savings, the average American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, domestic electricity prices have gone up by approximately 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure versus unforeseeable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a business or homeowner with ever-changing money flow, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home worth
Several studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater property worths and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, need for homes 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 part of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market 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 growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A typical domestic solar panel system will remove three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are very important parts of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that decide to operate responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of customer buying choices, developing goodwill and enhancing company results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Lots of house owners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
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 infamous for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy prices. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and simple math, we can determine just how much electrical energy will be produced, and most notably, at exactly 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
Where Does The Energy For Convection Come From?
Although year-to-year variations arise from thermal energy differences and other contributors such as tectonic uplift, the basic climatological structure of atmospheric circulation on the global scale remains at near-equilibrium conditions, as does the energy cycle through the Earth. Thus, the energy driving convection in the atmosphere was not created in isolation and does not act alone.
Rather, Earth's energy cycle is a connected chain of energy transactions that is continuously running and driving downstream processes. Starting from the conversion of incoming solar flux into surface heat, geothermal energy, tidal energy, etc., each energy-requiring process pushes the next step in the sequence, and convection of air in the atmosphere is one of the links in the connected chain that was driven by previous steps and will drive subsequent steps.
Therefore, convection in the atmosphere is not driven by any immediately identifiable energy source (since all contributing energy also came from elsewhere), but as a step in the flow of energy throughout the Earth connects into an interwoven energy cycle at steady-state conditions that fuels water circulation, material flow, biological processes, so on and so forth.
Similarly, the circulation of ocean water is the sum of contributing variables such as breaking waves, wind, Coriolis force, temperature and salinity differences, and tides caused by the gravitational pull of the Moon and the Sun, all of which are processes driven by other upstream processes. The interconnected energy cycle continues to run at steady-state conditions, with the cause and effects of upstream energy transactions adding up to the circulation process of ocean water.
Best Solar Companies To Invest In?
Please Olny Reply If You Know What You Are Talking About. Thanks
While FSLR is the most expensive solar stock, it has the best technology. Obama is big on solar, we all know that. Which solar companies benefit from this interest is yet to be seen. Will the new administration go for quality over quantity, we don't yet know. To be sure, solar stocks should gain in momentum and price. If you're interested in solar, as I am; I would recommend the solar ETF (TAN) or the energy sector ETF (XLE). Those are my choices.
How Do Solar Panels Cause An Electron Uniform Movement (Current) From Photons?
Or What Ever It Is That Makes Them Work.....
It is somewhat sophisticated, but the panels are made of semi-conductors which do not carry electricity as easily as a conductor (like copper or gold) but under certain conditions they do conduct. Electricity is carried by electrons that pried off the outer or "valence" level of the atom and bumped to the next atom. Think of a long line of grocery carts. When you add on at the end and push, the last one at the other end moves. Anyway, solar panels are arrays of material and they gain energy when photons or waves of sunlight hit the surface. Each photon is imparts enough energy to loosen an electron and this sends a really small (but usable) amount of current through the circuit. The panel has lot of arrays which allows for enough electricity to be created to be useful.
In the near future, expect panels to be made of easy to use materials and to be made into skins to cover cars like paint and houses like shingles and siding. With small wind turbines, hopefully we can get some homes off the grid and charge cars overnight with stored energy from the day. Then, we will ne more worried about global cooling than warming!!!
Why Is It That Renewable Energy Are Not Widely Used?
the cost of using fossil fuels to produce energy as been the cheapest. Renewable energy such as solar and wind is still in the growing stages. So the cost have been higher to install. Plus with fossil fuel you get a more a continues source to supply electric. With solar and wind, mother nature shows her hand to make it more sporadic. You have to have a breezy day for wind and low cloud cover for solar to be viable. Then you get into the night part of it. If you produce solar power you need to store it for night time use. Battery technology is improving but still lags behind where it need to be to be cost effective. Then you have to replace them every 7-10 years.
There is also education or breaking old habits. Some people don't care where or how their energy come from, just as long as it is there when they want it. We need to change how we live and save energy.
Why Is Solar Energy Renewable?
I Need Help On My Assignment
Solar energy is considered renewable because it is a resource that will not run out, unlike oil, gas and coal. We can't actually use up all the solar energy because the sun keeps on shining and its energy will stay for us to use for a long time. Another example of a renewable resource is water. We will drink it and use it, but in the end it will just come back down as precipitation.
