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 conditioning unit, cleaning clothes, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are substantial, numerous homeowners find that the convenience, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically decrease and even remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a homeowner, service, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can make up a large portion of your month-to-month costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your utility costs and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.
#2 Earn a great return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity costs savings, the average American house owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical power prices have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure against unforeseeable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a company or house owner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise assists you better projection and handle your costs.
#4 Increase your home or business worth
Multiple studies have actually found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial element of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate changes in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
According to The Solar Structure, 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 jobs in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent method to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A typical residential solar panel system will get rid of three to four loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are very important components of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that opt to run properly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of consumer getting decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.
#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.
Lots of house owners pick to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar supplier for electrical power-- 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 Financial investment
The energy companies are notorious for their varying and undependable electricity rates. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and easy math, we can determine just how much electricity will be created, and most significantly, at what rate, for at least 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?

Frequently Asked Questions
Why Is It Important For A Country To Have A Many Energy Resources?
Why Is It Important For A Country To Have A Many Energy Resources?
Because, not all sources of energy are easily available to every region of the Earth.
Gasoline or diesel fuel requires costly transport with a road system capable of allowing transport.
Natural gas may require miles of high-pressure lines for distribution.
Solar energy may not be available every day of the year and the electricity it can currently provide may not be enough to power a large city.
A great deal of electricity production in the United States is derived from burning coal. If the coal reserves are soon depleted a national energy crisis may force the government to invest in other sources to fund our growing energy demands such as solar or biofuels.
Electrical grids may suffer from transient blackouts and brownouts, often due to weather damage. During certain extreme space weather events solar wind can interfere with transmissions.
Electrical grids also have a predefined carrying capacity or load that cannot safely be exceeded. When power requirements exceed what's available, failures are inevitable. To prevent problems, power is then rationed.
Industrialised countries such as Canada, the US, and Australia are among the highest per capita consumers of electricity in the world, which is possible thanks to a widespread electrical distribution network. The US grid is one of the most advanced, although infrastructure maintenance is becoming a problem.
This electrical grid has taken years to develop along with billions of dollars in long term investment and annual maintenance. A poor nation may be unable to afford such a costly network.
The need for a variety of sources a citizen of any country can access at any moment makes sense in order to conserve resources and cost.
With enough economic resources available to every country of the world we may be able to distribute our energy technology and provide several sources of energy so that we may be able to tap into the most readily available source at the least expensive coast at the moment we need it.
Hope this helps.
Why Do We Need Sustainable Sources Of Energy For The Future?
I'M Doing A Project But I Cant Find The Answer.
Can You Help ? Alot Of Detail Would Be Great.
We need sustainable sources of energy for the future because we are using up our natural resources i.e. oil faster than the planet can replenish them. That means we will eventually run out of oil. It does not mean that no more oil will ever be created, it just means that it will take a very, very long time to happen and we will be hundreds upon millions of years without it. We need another form of energy--nuclear power is the most viable option right now, but it is dangerous and slightly unstable. Wind, hydroelectric, and solar power will always be renewable but the means by which we harvest them don't allow us to "extract" enough power. We need sustainable sources of energy because without them, we will run out of all other means of energy, and won't be able to use electricity anymore. This means no artificial heat or cooler, efficient travel, modern day medical help, etc.
What Are Disadvantages Of Using It? Consequences?
Solar energy equipment is somewhat expensive, and its production is intermittent, but solar is a great supplemental source, and added to other things like hydro wind and such, will ease our consumption of fossil fuel. As oil prices go up solar becomes a better alternative.
How Does Japan's Cultural Attitudes Affect The Environment?
Any Kind Of Source Would Be Helpful!
Japan; the country with technology but no resource what so ever.
They've suffered this issue for a century, and hence they have came up with many energy conservation technologies (e.g. fuel efficient motor vehicles & latest solar pannels), which have made some contributions to slow down the global warming, etc. One of the reasons why the previous protocols to the international framework convention on climate change was signed in Kyoto.
I'm glad to be in Australia though. Even though it's going up in price every year, I can use as much electricity as I like and still doesn't cost me anything compared to in Japan - we just have to burn more coal & natural gas :P
How Is Ocean Energy Stored?
I Need It For My Hw.
Pls Reply Thanks.
Ocean energy is related to the movement of water. The energy is stored in waves of all forms and sizes, ocean currents warm and cold, tides rising and falling and tides moving up and down river courses. Additionally, remember that the ocean stores a tremendous amount of heat due to solar radiation.
