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 homeowner to use the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, cleaning clothing, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, numerous home owners find that the benefit, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly decrease or even remove your electric costs
Whether you're a homeowner, company, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can comprise a big portion of your monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your utility bills and you'll still save a great deal of cash.
#2 Make a great return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the finest ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity costs savings, the average American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, property electricity prices have actually gone up by an average of three percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and secure versus unpredictable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a company or homeowner with fluctuating money circulation, going solar also helps you much better projection and manage your expenses.
#4 Increase your home worth
Multiple studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, need for properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A typical property solar panel system will eliminate 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are crucial elements of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that choose to run properly. Organisations are finding that "green" credentials are an effective driver of customer purchasing decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing company results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Numerous property owners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
As of 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 well-known for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and simple math, we can calculate how much electricity will be produced, and most notably, at what rate, 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

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
How Many Miles Per Dollar(Mpd) Do Hydrogen Cars Get As Of Now?
For Example, My Car Gets 28Mpg Highway, So In New York Where Gas Is About $3.25 For Me, I Get About 8.6Mpd Highway. Anyway, If Anyone Out In California Is More Knowledgeable About Hydrogen Cars And Knows How Much It Costs To Fill One Up And The Car'S Range, Could You Shed Some Light On The Miles Per Dollar You Get In A Hydrogen Car.
The Reason I'M Asking Is Because There'S A Lot Of Debate Over Fully Electric Vs Hydrogen Cars. In My Opinion Companies Like Shell And Exxon Are Pushing Hydrogen Cars So That They Can Stay In Business. If We Move To Fully Electric Cars You Plug In At Home, Then Oil Companies Will Not Have Anything To Fall Back On Once Fossils Fuels Are Phased Out(Or Simply Run Out, Whichever Comes First).
To Downplay Fully Electric Cars, People Say That The Energy Coming From Your House Is Probably Fueled By Dirty Fossil Fuels, But To Counter This, I Say That Our Whole Energy Grid Should Just Be Solar And Wind Energy.
I Do Understand That Once Hydrogen Is Produced At A Higher Quantity And The Infrastructure To Distribute It Grows, It Will Be Cheaper, But I Was Just Wondering Where It Stands Right Now.
Anyway, I Think The Only Argument For Hydrogen Cars Is Only If It Will Be Cheap Enough To Produce In Order For It To Be Cheap For Commuters To Fill Their Car Also.
Anywhere from 2 to 90 miles per dollar: The cost of hydrogen fuel is rather difficult to find. Here is an article that says hydrogen costs "$1 to $20 a kilo. A gallon of gasoline has the same energy content as a kilo of hydrogen, but vehicles using the latter get two to three times higher mileage."1 First some fact checking. Here is a chart that tells equivalencies and confirms that a kilo of hydrogen equals about the same BTU as a gallon of gasoline.2 While a hydrogen fuel cell electric car will get this kind of increase in mileage an internal combustion engine running on hydrogen probably will not.
We can assume that an average car will get 20 to 30 miles per gallon and so a hydrogen car ( a fuel cell electric vehicle) will get 2 to three times this or 40 to 90 miles per kilo of hydrogen.
At $1.00 per kilo hydrogen is going to give you a minimum of 40 miles and a max of 90 miles. This will cost you from ($1.00/40 to $1.00/90) $.025 to $.011 per mile at the low price. (40 to 90 miles per dollar)
At the high price of $20 this would be ($20/40 to $20/90) $.50 to $.22 dollars per mile (2 to 4.5 miles per dollar.)
The price of the vehicle seems to be from a low of about $100,000 to about $1,500,000. There is no way to know how heavily the price of the vehicle, the fueling station or the fuel is subsidized.
The cost of adding hydrogen fueling stations seems to run about $50,000 while a fast charging station might be 1/10 the price and a natural gas fueling station might be 1/5th the price. Hydrogen is going to be made primarily from gas reforming as it is today and is the reason petrochemical companies are very interested. Then like an EV the vehicle may be operated cleanly but the infrastructure would be in doubt. The difference is that it is less likely that hydrogen would be acquired cleanly and certainly with less efficiency than simply powering a natural gas car or an electric car directly.4
Renewable Energy Vs Sub-Sea Future?
Renewable Energy - Things Like Wind Turbines
Sub-Sea - Things Like Rov, Oil & Gas
What Is The Most Beneficial For The Future And What Will Have The Most Demand For Jobs?
To Make It More Clear I Am Talking About Developement, Design Side Of Both Industries, What Would Be The Best?
At some time in the future as technology develops renewable energy will become more viable but right now oil and gas is still the energy source of choice and therefore has more job choices and opportunities.
If you have been watching the news you can see that solar energy is not making economically even with huge assistance from the US government. It is still an interesting place to work but the jobs are limited and the pay may not be very high.
Are Biofuels Environmentally Friendly? If Not Can They Be Made Environmentally Friendly?
If you look at all Biofuels critically for energy input versus energy outputs then they are not environmentally friendly in the least and are mostly destructive. The problem with most such analyses is that they are biased toward a specific desired outcome. Remember that coal is the original Biofuel. It represents millions of years of stored solar energy that has been converted to peat and then coal. What people do not seem to get is that it takes a 20-50 foot coal seam to be mineable and that that even a seam of a few feet represents thousands of years of collective vegetation! All of the Earths current vegetation would probably only constitute a few inches, at most of "coal". You are trying to grow your way into what nature has already done for you through time. You can have recycling (a good thing) but as a primary energy source Biofuels are an economic black hole that is seeking a perpetual motion machine. They consume more energy and therefore destroy more environment than they produce/save.
This is a politically based fuel dependent on tax dollars to justify its existence!

How Do You Convert Solar Energy To Electrical Energy?
From There How Do You Convert It To Mechanical Energy?
Basically, when light strikes the cell, a certain portion of it is absorbed within a semiconductor material. This means that the energy of the absorbed light is transferred to a semiconductor. The energy knocks electrons loose, allowing them to flow freely.
Photo Voltaic cells also all have one or more electric fields that act to force electrons freed by light absorption to flow in a certain direction. This flow of electrons is a current, and by placing metal contacts on the top and bottom of the PV cell, we can draw that current off to use externally.
This current, together with the cell's voltage (which is a result of its built-in electric field or fields), defines the power (or wattage) that the solar cell can produce.
This voltage is then use in a traditional way to convert electrical energy to mechanical energy.

Would It Be Feasible To Use Solar Energy To Heat Your Home?
I Am Doing A Project In School And I Was Just Hoping To Get Some Peoples' Opinions On This Question. But Please Take It Seriously Because You (Could) Impact My Grade.
Define feasible? It's POSSIBLE, but it's not easy for the average person because it requires major installations that are very expensive.
Solar Energy from normal panels creates electricity, but heating a home isn't done with electricity. Heat in homes comes from burning gas. Instead of regular panels, there are "hot water panels" where the panels are filled with water (instead of with silicon) and are heated by the sun. Then it goes through a system in the flooring, releasing the heat and warming the house as the heat rises.
Again, extremely expensive and not feasible at current prices for the average person.
