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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, washing clothes, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are significant, many homeowners find that the benefit, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically decrease or perhaps eliminate your electrical expenses
Whether you're a house owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a large part of your month-to-month expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility costs and you'll still conserve a lot of money.
#2 Make a great return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs savings, the average American property owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, domestic electricity rates have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard against unforeseeable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a business or house owner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and handle your expenditures.
#4 Boost your residential or commercial property value
Several studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a terrific method to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A normal property solar panel system will eliminate 3 to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are necessary components of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding services that pick to run responsibly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of consumer acquiring choices, developing goodwill and improving company results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Many homeowners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
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 changing and unreliable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can determine how much electrical energy will be created, and most notably, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of 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
- 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
How Much Does A Solar Energy System Cost And Are Their Still Tax Breaks?
Hello, I Have Been Wanting To Buy Solar Panels For A Long Time, Just Bought My Own Home So I Finally Have A Place To Do It!
Just Wondering How Much Do They Cost On Average For A 1300 Square Foot House And Is There Anything That Would Help Me Implement Getting Them Like Tax Breaks?
First tax breaks for installing solar panels are primarily based upon local energy companies and the state in which you live. You will find some more specific information about incentives using the sources below. Some of the incentives will be specific to your situation.
Secondly every system is custom designed primarily based upon your usage and needs. This is why you see the cost of a PV system is based upon units (kw)
But you should also know that "solar energy" comes in 2 forms: light and heat. We convert the light to electricity using photovoltaic panels that have a commercial efficiency between 5% to 20%. We convert the sun's heat to .... heat using solar thermal panels that are far cheaper to make and install. Because they are also up to 80% efficient and making hot water can consume 30% of a household's energy they typically have a payback period 4 times faster than the PV panels.
Solar thermal panels come with a built in energy storage system (the hot water tank) while batteries or a grid tie are the only way deal with excess light energy from a PV system. A good time to make the decision to purchase a solar hot water system is at the end of the warranty period of your current water heater.
So you will want to look at costs and incentives for both types of panels.
This Q & A forum is probably not the best place for what should essentially be a more specific search (see sources below) but you will see in many places the "average" cost of an installed PV system as it slowly becomes lower: https://emp.lbl.gov/sites/all/files/pv_s...
Here are two views on the cost of a solar hot water system:
5-10 Reasons Why Solar Energy Is Better Than Fossil Fuels Please Answer!!!!!?
I Need 5-10 Reasons Why Solar Energy Is Better Than Fossil Fuels. Please Answer Because This Is For An Argumentative Essay Due Tomorrow For Me!
1) Fossil Fuels can be used 24 hours per day, while solar energy can only be "harvested" during daytime.
2) Fossil Fuels work rain or shine, while solar power is limited to periods of clear sky or thin clouds.
3) Fossil Fuel power production plants require only a few dozen acres to provide continuous power to hundreds of thousands of homes, while solar power requires thousands of acres of farmland or desert (flat areas) to produce the same amount of power.
4) Fossil Fuels contain energy that can be moved anywhere and used anytime, while solar energy must be harvested in real time and used in real time, because we lack the battery capacity to store enough solar energy for times when no sunlight is available.
5) Fossil Fuels are cheap and abundant, with a worldwide estimate of over 100 years of oil, 250 years worth of natural gas, and as much as 1000 years worth of coal, all in our current proven reserves. Solar power will be available for several billion years, but takes an enormous amount of land and expense to use.
6) Fossil Fuels provide the resources necessary for manufacturing everything from clothing to plastics and cannot be replaced by solar power, so fossil fuels will still need to be mined and tapped even if solar power could provide enough power to replace fossil fuels.
7) Fossil fuels work anywhere on the planet, including areas that have little sunlight due to latitude or normal climate (cloudy, foggy, etc). Norway, Sweden, Finland and the northern half of the USSR could not depend upon solar power in the winter when days are either extremely short or non-existent (above the arctic circle).
8) Fossil Fuels can replace solar energy, but solar energy cannot replace fossil fuels. In order to be sure that we have enough energy available always, fossil fuel power plants have to be ready to go all the time, which means that mining and drilling must continue so that there will be a ready supply of fuel for the fossil fuel power plants.
9) Oh, wait. You wanted to know why solar energy was better, not fossil fuels. My bad.
Solar Energy For Brooding(Poultry) Purpose? Any Idea How To Develop One?
This is one of the classic Permaculture design tutorials; so get on a permaculture course. I recommend any books by Patrick Whitefield http://www.patrickwhitefield.co.uk/
eg put the chicken house on the north of a greenhouse - provides fodder, heat, extra water harvesting. & extra CO2 & compost material from chicken help plants grow .
What Are Some Rising, Or Already Well Established, Solar Or Wind Power Companies?
International Companies Are Acceptable As Well. Does Anyone Know Of Any Companies Which Are In The Solar Or Wind (Or Any Alternative Source Of Energy) Power Industry? Or Any Innovative Companies As Well.
I think rather than asking people here you'll get better results by searching for the answer in Google.
A Question For Creationists...?
Why Do You Denounce The Theory Of Evolution Simply Because You Think That It Contradicts The Bible?
The Heliocentric Theory (Ie, The Theory That States That The Sun Is The Center Of Our Solar System And The Earth Revolves Around It) Contradicts The Opening Passages Of Genesis So Much More Than The Theory Of Evolution Does, Yet You Don'T Deny This Theory Because It Has Been Observed And Objectively Proven Countless Times Over.
Besides, Evolution Only States That The Genetic Makeup Of A Group Of Organisms Changes Between Successive Generations. It Makes No Claims About How Life Began, How The Universe Began, Or How Exactly Life Developed Along The Evolutionary Path. This Obviously Does Not Contradict The Idea That God Created Life, And If You Have Faith In God It Is In No Way A Stretch To Say That He Guided Evolution To Serve His Purposes.
And Just For Clarification: A Scientific &Quot;Theory&Quot; Is Not An Opinion. It Is A Model To Explain Natural Phenomena That Can Be Empirically Observed And Tested. The Colloquial Meaning Of The Word &Quot;Theory&Quot; Is Called A Hypothesis In Scientific Terms, And Evolution Passed That Stage A Long Time Ago.
Gee whiz. What scripture says that the earth is the center of our solar system? That's a new one for me. Show he proof and I won't argue.
..and sure God can guide evolution, but Genesis sounds more like genetic engineering on God's part. For example it says he made modern animals "after their kind," that is similar in DNA structure to their prehistoric counterparts. Ofcourse, it means one could mistakenly apply evolution in this case, as we have.
Also be careful about believing that a theory is proven. On these very same pages and in scientific journal you can find the term String Theory, yet this explanation about the nature of the universe is completely unproven. Evolution is still just a logical suggestion of how life progressed on earth, yet it need not be the only logical suggestion, as so many demand.
