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 daily life: running your ac system, cleaning clothing, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, many residents discover that the convenience, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably minimize or even remove your electrical bills
Whether you're a property owner, service, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can make up a large portion of your regular monthly 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 take in, solar will decrease your utility costs and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Make a terrific return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of 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 photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the past ten years, property electrical power costs have increased by an average of three percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard against unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're a company or property owner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise helps you better projection and manage your costs.
#4 Increase your house worth
Several studies have actually found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher home values and sell faster 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 end up being more educated about solar, demand for homes equipped 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 crucial part of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a terrific method to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A common residential solar panel system will get rid of three to 4 lots 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 essential components of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding organisations that pick to operate responsibly. Services are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of customer purchasing choices, creating goodwill and improving organisation results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Many property owners select to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar company 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 Financial investment
The energy companies are notorious for their varying and unreliable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can determine what does it cost? electricity will be created, and most significantly, at exactly what cost, for at least the next 20 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
Why Arent More Alternative Energy Methods Being Used?
When I Was In Arizona, There Was A Whole Field Where Huge Solar Panals Collected Sun Energy. Why Arent More Ideas Like That Being Used? Think Of All The Southern States That Recieve Plenty Of Sunshine For Solar Energy. Think Of All The Mountainous Areas And Flats That Would Be Great For Wind Power. Why Should Money Be An Issue When It Would More Than Pay For Itself In The Long Run?
Solar panels are expensive and don't work in the night or when there's no sun so they arent really reliable. People think they're a waste of money. and wind turbines arent reliable either. there isnt always enough wind to power a turbine. And wind turbines dont pay for themselves in the long run. More energy is wasted in putting one up than it can produce in it's whole 'lifetime'. I agree we should use more renewable energy though. They need to be cheaper for local use.
Have a look at this website. It's useful :D
What Are Some Of The Frames Or Hardware One Can Use To Keep Solar Panels In Place?
Most Solar arrays are mounted using a roof racking system designed for solar arrays like Unirac or ProSolar or something similar.
There are some great roof attachments as well, some of the best coming from S5! for metal roofs or PV Quickmount for shingle roofs.
Cheers! You may want to try a Unistrut mounting system as well if it is really small and a DIY.

Interesting link. Also, it should be noted that photovoltaic solar energy is indeed big business. As you commented, the environmental risks are quite real.
"Photovoltaics (PV) is the field of technology and research related to the application of solar cells for energy by converting sun energy (sunlight, including sun ultra violet radiation) directly into electricity. Due to the growing demand for clean sources of energy, the manufacture of solar cells and photovoltaic arrays has expanded dramatically in recent years.
Photovoltaic production has been doubling every 2 years, increasing by an average of 48 percent each year since 2002, making it the world’s fastest-growing energy technology. At the end of 2008, the cumulative global PV installations reached 15,200 megawatts. Roughly 90% of this generating capacity consists of grid-tied electrical systems. Such installations may be ground-mounted (and sometimes integrated with farming and grazing)  or built into the roof or walls of a building, known as Building Integrated Photovoltaics or BIPV for short.
Net metering and financial incentives, such as preferential feed-in tariffs for solar-generated electricity, have supported solar PV installations in many countries including Australia, Germany, Israel, Japan, and the United States."
Solar Energy Question?
Explain The History Of Solar Energy. When Was It First Used And How Was It Used? I Need Legit Answers Plz!
Not sure if that helps:
In 400 B.C. the Greeks were the first to implement the sun’s rays for heat. During this time they began to orient the placement of their houses to trap solar heat during winter.
The photovoltaic effect or the production of electricity directly form the sun was discovered by Frenchman Henry Becquerel in 1890. In 1891 American Clarence Kemp received a patent for the first solar water heater.
Why Is Solar Energy Renewable?
Because we can't use up sunlight. It may technically not be an infinite resource, but we will have it until the sun burns out, when that happens generating electricity will be the least of our worries.
