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 use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothes, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, many homeowners discover that the convenience, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically decrease and even eliminate your electric costs
Whether you're a homeowner, business, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can make up a big part of your month-to-month expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll produce 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 reduce your utility costs and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.
#2 Earn a fantastic return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy expense cost savings, the average American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, residential electricity prices have increased by approximately three percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're an organisation or house owner with ever-changing capital, going solar also assists you much better projection and handle your costs.
#4 Increase your residential or commercial property value
Multiple research studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater home worths and offer quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, demand for homes 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 key part of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price variations in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a great way to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A typical residential solar panel system will get rid of three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are important parts of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that opt to operate properly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of customer getting decisions, producing goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Many homeowners decide to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This means that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
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 business are infamous for their fluctuating and undependable electricity costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate how much electrical energy will be produced, and most significantly, at what cost, for at least the next 20 years (repaired 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

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 Is Thermal Energy?
Thermal Energy is heat energy. There are different types. Solar could be considered thermal since you use the suns heat, there is also geothermal. This is the first type that came to mind when i saw the question. Geothermal energy is when you use the earths internal heat as an energy source. This is often used to heat water supply for homes. It is often difficult to use on large scales due to "hotspots" being inconsistent and random. They will not be widespread and you will have to go certain depths to get the same amount of energy.

How Big Should Be The Solar Cells To Power An Office Cool/Warm Water Dispenser?
I Want To Design A Solar Powered Water Dispencer And It Also Cools And/Or Warms The Water For Drinking.Is It Practical To Install A 1Square Meter Solar Cell?
I just checked our water cooler, and it has a maximum draw of 144 watts. There is a type of cooler that dumps transfers heat from the cold side to the hot side, and that might do what you want. But I would not expect boiling water for tea, just warmer than room temperature, and chilled on the other side. A solar panel of 1 square meter could do this, but you would have to charge NiMH batteries to power the compressor, as the power draw is on and off, and you would not want to waste the energy of the solar panel when the compressor is off. The reason I say NiMH is that lithium would be expensive, and any kind of lead-acid, even sealed, is inappropriate for a food appliance.
You would want to heavily insulate the hot and cold reservoirs, and I assume that warm and cool water is not a critical application, so if the sun doesn't shine or the batteries run out, there's no harm.
How Can You Use Passive Solar Energy To Save On Heating And Cooling Bills In Your Home?
Please Help! I Have A Test Coming!
On an existing home, for heating it is a simple as opening the blinds on windows during the day to let sunlight in and closing them at night to keep the heat from escaping through the glass.
To keep the home cool, keep the blinds closed on the side of the home that has the sun shinning on it. This keeps the heat out and you use less A/C to cool the home.

Some Hard Decisions Must Be Made On Our Energy Choices
By The Way- I Would Probably Buy At Least One Electric Car For The Family If The Economics Work Out.
No one has talked about the cost of electricity to consumers from charging these cars or the fact that electrical generation requires energy too - of which many sources are not green. The car may not have emissions but the coal-fired plant generating electricity does.
Since the car will be more expensive than a conventional car and there is a cost in the form of your electric bill, I'm not convinced the economics work out or that the vehicle is as green as billed unless we really ramp up solar and wind power.
There is no free lunch. I waited to buy my hybrid until it was proven technology and I was able to get a really good rebate on the vehicle from the manufacturer to offset some of the additional costs.
