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 use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioner, washing clothes, viewing TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, many home owners find that the benefit, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically minimize and even eliminate your electric costs
Whether you're a homeowner, company, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can make up a large portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your utility costs and you'll still save a lot of loan.
#2 Make a terrific return on your investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity expense savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, residential electrical power prices have gone up by an average of 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard against unpredictable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're an organisation or house owner with rising and falling cash circulation, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home worth
Multiple research studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher property worths and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes 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 component of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price changes in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry included 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 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 outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a great method to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A normal residential solar panel system will remove 3 to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are important components of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that decide to operate responsibly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of customer acquiring choices, creating goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Many property owners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar supplier for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy 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 energy companies are infamous for their changing and undependable electrical power rates. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and basic mathematics, we can calculate how much electricity will be created, and most notably, at what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty 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
- 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
- $0 down for installation
- Customers only pay for the solar energy that they use
- Customer pays for the system upfront and owns the system
- System monitoring and maintenance for 20 years
- Receive 30% federal tax credit
- See a return on investment within 7-10 years
What happens when the contract for my lease is finished?
We provide our customers with a few different options for when their lease contract is up. Customers can upgrade their equipment to the newest solar technology available, extend the agreement, or have the panels removed at no cost.
What is the warranty?
The Lease and PPA include a 20-year warranty during the lifetime of the system. This warranty exceeds that of most other solar installers’ warranties.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Does Solar Help Our Environment?
Solar what? Energy? Solar collectors are generally very dark to absorb as much sunlight as possible, preventing it from reflecting back into space, where it is lost. Eventually all the absorbed energy, whether converted to electricity or not, is converted to heat in the environment, causing global warming to increase even beyond the beneficial rate due to CO2 release. This increases the percentage of land on earth suitable for agriculture.
If You Could, How Would Lessen The Price Of Oil?
It'S 140$ Per Barrel Now, So I Was Wondering If You Could Do Some Changes, What Would You Do To Make Oil Cheaper?
&Quot;Oil Surged Above $140 A Barrel In New York Trading, Compounding Fears That Soaring Inflation Will Hamper A Global Economy Already On The Ropes.&Quot;
So What Would You Do To Change This Huge Problem That Takes A Nice Little Chunk Out Of Your Wallet/Purse.
Well, its a tough issue. But, i have some ideas.
First, we must increase the production of oil. It must go up, but not toooo much. Let's hope that some moderate increases by the Saudis (if they do in the future) can have an impact..I hope..
But I think we should really try to increase alternative energy. We must try to increase solar, wind, and hydrogen power. We should provide incentives to companies (just like how McCain and Obama have offered) that create goods that use alternate energy. Reward companies that make cars with alternate energy. Give tax breaks, etc and fund investment into 'green energy. Also, we must buy more cars with MPGs.
There needs to be incentives to create better MPG cars. Also, if its possible, there needs to be a way to make SUVs more fuel-efficent. If not, then there needs to be rewards and tax cuts for companies that make clean energy vehicles (or ones with great MPG).
Lastly, consumers need to make changes. They need to use more ways of transportation besides cars (bus, train, or maybe carpool if they wanna use cars). Also, consumers can use alternate energy as well and cut back on their usage of vehicles. My ideas and i hope you enjoyed them.
Types Of Solar Energy?
One way to categorize solar energy is by how it is converted into useful forms. There are two types in this category: Passive Solar Energy and Active Solar Energy.
Passive Solar Energy doesn't use mechanical means to collect, store, or distribute the solar energy. For example, a thermosyphon (solar water heater) will use natural convection to circulate the water through the system.
Active Solar Energy uses mechanical devices to collect, store, and/or distribute the solar energy. For example, active solar water heaters use pumps to circulate the water or heat-transfer fluid in the system.
A second way to categorize solar energy is by the type of energy the system will produce. There are two types in this category: Solar Electricity and Solar Thermal.
Solar Electricity is produced using photovoltaic panels. PV panels produce an electric current when light hits them. A solar electric system captures this electricity and transfers it to your homes electric system.
Solar Thermal uses solar collectors to generate heat which can be used for solar space heating, interior solar water heating, or solar pool heating.
Why Is Does The Energy Industry Seem Religiously Opposed To Renewable Energy?
It'S Like We Tell Them &Quot;Hey Guess What Guys This Oil Stuff Is Gonna Run Out Sooner Than Later So We Need To Start Doing Something Else&Quot;
So They Say
&Quot;Ok Lets Do Nuke Power!&Quot;
Well That'S Potentially Very Dangerous, Uses Vasts Amounts Of Water, And Produces Waste That We Don'T Know Exactly How To Dispose Of.
Then They Say
&Quot;Ok, Lets Do Clean Coal!&Quot;
Well &Quot;Clean&Quot; Coal Is Still A Finite Resource, It Still Pollutes The Air, Carbon Sequestration Is Still In Its Experimental Phase, And It Will Entail Environmental Destruction As We Begin To Strip Mine For Coal.
How About A Nice Solar, Wind, And Geothermal Energy Program?
Then They Say
&Quot;Scoff! No Way! We'Re Not Doing That!&Quot;
They Don'T Really Have A Good Reason, Other Than The Fact That They Really Really Like Digging Up Fossils And Burning Them. And If They Can'T Dig Up Fossils Then They Have To Be Digging Up Some Radioactive Rock Somewhere.
Isn'T Renewable The Most Common Sense Choice?
I agree with what everyone else has said for the most part, but would like to add that renewable energies are hard to keep centralized and in the hands of only a few people.
Anyone can put up a wind turbine or solar panel, technically, but you have to be a special kind of someone to build and own a coal power plant or oil refinery.
Why Can'T We Just Switch Over To Solar, Hydro And Wind Power Completely?
The Technology Exist, Why Aren'T We Using It? I'M Not An Eco Freak, But I Don'T Want My Scions To Grow Up In A World Where Mother Nature Is On Crack.
Perhaps "we" as a nation can't switch completely because the infrastructure does not yet exist to support our massive need. But you, and your family, certainly can.
Nearly every community in the US now has a choice in their energy supplier (you may not be able to choose who delivers your energy, but they still offer numerous suppliers). And many of those suppliers offer renewable energy programs. You can choose to purchase a portion of your energy from renewable sources, or all of it.
By choosing a new, environmentally friendly supplier you are not only telling the energy companies that people are interested in renewable energy, but you are using your dollars to help support and expand this infrastructure. The more people choose this option, the more widely available and economically feasible it will become. So tell your neighbors to do the same!
For information on green energy suppliers in your area, contact your energy company (but don't be surprised if they aren't helpful, and don't be discouraged if they tell you it's not available to you - it often really is).
An even better resource is www.green-e.org. They can tell you what green energy options are available in your area.
