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 a/c unit, washing clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, numerous home owners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably lower or even remove your electric expenses
Whether you're a homeowner, company, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can make up a big portion of your monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.
#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power expense cost savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the previous 10 years, property electrical energy rates have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and protect versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a service or property owner with ever-changing money circulation, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and manage your expenses.
#4 Boost your property worth
Multiple research studies have actually found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and offer more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial 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 achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost changes in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general 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 jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a great method to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will remove three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are essential components of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that decide to run responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective driver of customer acquiring choices, developing goodwill and improving company results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Numerous property owners decide to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility companies are well-known for their varying and unreliable electricity rates. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate how much electricity will be created, and most significantly, at 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
What Are Some Good Things About Nuclear Energy?
Im Doing A Group Debate Tomorrow, About Why You Should Use Nuclear Energy As Opposed To Fossil Fuels, Hydroelectric, And Solar Energy. I Will Be Presenting Our Opening Statement, And Any Good Things To Include Would Be A Great Help.
Fossil fuels always release more pollutants, including CO2 if you consider that a pollutant. Hydroelectric electricity has limited availability, and it's a resource that is pretty much tapped out - every river which can be dammed for electricity already is. Solar energy is expensive, far more expensive than anything else. There is a lot of variation is solar panels, but it often involves rare earth elements, which limits the total numbers of panels which could be produced (at a number too low to matter). Solar energy is also not very energy dense. The total land it would take to capture the same amount of energy using solar as can be generated using nuclear is tremendous. States worth of land. Unlike oil, we have a lot of uranium locally, and the other nation with big resources is Australia who we're on pretty good terms with. And if we had some modern reactors, there would be much less nuclear waste produced. In fact, some of the new plants can eat material which was previously considered waste.
Is It Possible To Combine Solar And Geothermal Energy For Residence In The State Of Maryland?
What About Creating A Hybrid Of Solar, Geothermal, Wind Energy?
I have both solar electric and solar hot water panels and they are awesome. You can get a wind map to see if you are in the right area for a turbine. I don't know a lot about geothermal. Consult the green companies in your area and make sure they all know about your plans in completion so there is no overlapping. It will be expensive! Good luck.
We Have To Conduct An Experiment Regarding Conversion Of Energy...It Involves Converting Solar Energy To Electrical Energy...We Were Given Solar Plats...How The Experiment Could Be Conducted And What Could Be The Reasonable Variables??
Solar panels are semiconductor devices that sensitive to electromagnetic radiation. The amount of energy harvested will be proportional to the incident solar radiation. The incident flux will depend upon the time of day, angle of elevation of the panel, the direction of the panel, and shade from clouds or vegetation. The sensitivity of the device will depend upon the temperature and wavelength. There are too many variables to control everything outside of a lab environment, so I would advise working with those that you can control - specifically the direction and angle of elevation of the panels. These can be calculated based on your latitude, but it may be interesting to discover the optimal values for your location by experiment. Good luck.
What Are The Democratic And Republican Views On Solar Energy?
What Are The Democratic And Republican Views On Solar Energy?
What Are The Views, And How Do They Affect America?
I Need Both Sides, Democratic, And Reublican Views
In reality - Solar Farms are not practical or cost effective - YET!
They need to be subsidized by government. Solar panels only have a 10-20 year life.
When solar panels go below the 8 cent per watt cost - then they will be more cost effective.
Some Democrats don't want their development or wind Farms.
"AMBOY, Calif. — Senator Dianne Feinstein introduced legislation in Congress on Monday to protect a million acres of the Mojave Desert in California by scuttling some 13 big solar plants and wind farms planned for the region." - - Plus the Kennedy's stopped a wind farm in Massachusetts.
What Else Is There Besides Wind, Solar, Geothermal, Tidal, Hydro
Is There Any Else???
NB: by definition Sustainable Energy is the provision of energy such that it meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.
