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 house owners to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, cleaning clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, lots of property owners find that the benefit, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically lower and even eliminate your electrical bills
Whether you're a property owner, business, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can make up a big part of your month-to-month costs. With a solar panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your energy expenses and you'll still save a lot of money.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity expense cost savings, the typical American house owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous ten years, domestic electrical energy rates have actually increased by an average of three percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure against unpredictable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a service or property owner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and handle your costs.
#4 Boost your home value
Multiple studies have discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and sell more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, demand for properties 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 component of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market 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 country. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is an excellent method to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A typical residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are very important components of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that opt to operate responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of consumer getting choices, creating goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Numerous house owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility companies are notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can determine how much electricity will be generated, and most notably, at exactly what price, for at least the next 20 years (repaired 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.

My System Is Sort Of Solar Powered Backed Large Scale Un-Inturptable Power Supply For My Computer Business.
This System Saves Me Electricity And Protects My Server From Power Outages Etc..
Any Light You Can Shed On This Subject Will Be Appreciated.
If you are using the solar setup exclusively to power your PCs for your business, you should be able to claim depreciation on the solar equipment over a number of years.
If your solar equipment is also used domestically, then your deduction would need to be reduced to account for your private usage. The most precise way to work that out would be to meter your energy use for business vs domestic consumption.
The about has nothing to do with solar tax breaks; it is standard tax law for business deductions. It should make no difference where you bought your solar equipment either.
Chem Help: Semiconductors Vs. Metals For Solar Radiation?
Semiconductors Are More Effective Than Metals As Converters Of Solar Radiation Into Electricity Because:
A. It Is Easier For The Atoms Of A Semiconductor To Absorb Solar Energy And To Move From Place To Place Within The Solid, Thereby Conducting Electricity.
B. The Energy Contained In Sunlight Gives The Valence Electrons In The Semiconductor Atoms The Extra Energy They Need To &Quot;Flow&Quot; Throughout The Solid.
C. Metals Melt Much Too Easily Under Direct Sunlight And, As Liquids, Lose Their Ability To Conduct Electricity.
D. Solar Radiation Has Sufficient Energy To Knock Electrons Completely Off The Metal Surface, Making It Impossible For The Electrons To &Quot;Flow&Quot; From Atom To Atom And Conduct Electricity.
I'Ve Looked All Over My Book And Googled It And I Can'T Find Anything Saying Why Semiconductors Are Better. I Also Need To Be Able To Explain Why I Chose My Answer And Why The Others Are Incorrect. Any Ideas?
OK check out my profile page - I am a solar cell scientist
ALL are incorrect the person who wrote this is a dufus
B is closest to the truth - light moves an electron from valence to conduction band and under the potential of a built in p.n junction elctric field the conduction band electron (and the "hole" left behind in the valence band) move
Think About All Possible Pathways Energy Follows To Eventually Produce Electricity From Sunlight?
This Is In The From Of Solar Power. Include All Transfers Of Energy Along The Way. Please Be Specific
solar cells, energy in light directly to electricity
hydroelectric: energy from sun evaporates water. Water later condenses and falls as rain, filling uphil streams and rivers. The net result is that the water gains potential energy, from sea level to a higher altitude. The potential energy in the water is used to cause a fast water stream as the PE is converted to kinetic energy. This hits a turbine, and makes it spin, as the KE of the water is converted to rotational mechanical energy. This is coupled to an electric generator which spins, converting the mechanical energy to electrical energy.
Coal, oil, gas, wood: Energy from the sun causes plants to grow, and animals feed from the plants. This is a complex series of interactions. The the plants and animals die, and the material slowly over very long periods of time, due to pressure and heat (heat is from the sun indirecty) change to coal, oil and gas.
These are then burned, creating heat via a chemical reaction. The heat boils water to steam, a change in state, so the steam has potential energy. The hot steam hits a turbine, and makes it spin, as the KE of the steam is converted to rotational mechanical energy. This is coupled to an electric generator which spins, converting the mechanical energy to electrical energy.
Wind turbine: heat from the sun on one area differs from other areas, and day to night the temperature changes, which creates temperature differentials, which causes air to be at different temperatures in the two areas, which causes wind as the temperature seeks to equalize. A wind turbine captures some of that KE of the moving air, wind, and mechanically couples it to a electric generator which spins, converting the mechanical energy to electrical energy.
What Type Of Energy Is Solar Energy?
Please Tell Me What Type Of Energy Is Solar Energy And Example Would Be Kinetic,Electrical Etc.. Thankss!
Solar energy is a source of energy whereas;
kinetic energy, electrical energy, potential energy, etc. are forms of energy.
However solar energy is converted in diffrent forms like heat and light energy and can be used to generate electricity or for heating.............
Hope that helped...................have a nice day..................................
I Am Not In Favor Of Any Form Of Government Subsidies. Why Is One Persons More Import Than The Other?
E.G Oil And Solar. Bank Vs Home Owners
Bank is not a person, home owner is, so it's not one person being more important. People trump non-people in a normal society.
Oil vs solar - You have two different energy options with very different effects on society as a whole. Favoring one that is - limitless (for all practical purposes), renewable, non-polluting, and does not contribute to global warming over one that is a limited resource, causes massive pollution, global warming, contributes to our massive trade deficit, funds terrorism and greatly increases wasted military costs isn't favoring one person as more important than the other, it's beneficial to society as a whole.
It's a false comparison, anyway, because both industries have massive subsidies from the government, and the cleaner option's subsidies are much less, and they are a less mature industry, overall.
Government has a role in taking actions benefiting the governed. Often a "subsidy" that directly helps an individual is actually an investment that pays back to society several times over. Sorry you don't like it.
