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 home owners to use the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothes, viewing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing 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, numerous property owners find that the benefit, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically minimize or perhaps remove your electrical bills
Whether you're a house owner, company, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a big portion of your regular monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your energy bills and you'll still save a lot of loan.
#2 Make a terrific return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the finest ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy costs savings, the average American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical energy prices have actually increased by approximately 3 percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and secure against unforeseeable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a service or house owner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise helps you better projection and manage your expenses.
#4 Increase your home value
Several studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater property worths and sell more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively 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 informed about solar, need 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 an essential component of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a great method to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A normal domestic photovoltaic panel system will remove three to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are necessary elements of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that choose to run responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of consumer buying choices, developing goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Lots of property owners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar provider for electrical power-- 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 Financial investment
The utility business are well-known for their fluctuating and unreliable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can compute what does it cost? electrical power will be generated, and most importantly, at what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed 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
Why Do People (Usually Neocons) Say Solar Power Is A Scam?
Hardly No Money Has Been Put Into It Compared To Other Sources Of Energy And It'S The Most Net Efficient Of All Alternative Energies.
See This Graph.. Very Little Is Spend On Solar:
In robotics, which does not use enough energy to power a city, solar power is probably is as you say. If that form of energy were as great as you think, more Energy Companies would be looking into it. The person and or Company that actually creates a working alternative to fossil fuel energy that can produce the amount of energy necessary to power the country is going to make billions. If Solar Power was the viable alternative more companies would be looking into it. Forget your hate for neocons and oil companies, if people can get rich on it, they will do it. Right now your solar power companies are going bankrupt even with taxpayer dollars, which means they can't make the technology viable in the quantities necessary to replace fossil fuels.
Why We Are Not Switching To Atomic Or Solar Energy?
Many utilities are taking another look at nuclear energy now that high prices and Global Climate Change are overcoming the social concerns associated with it. It takes a long time and a lot of money to commission a nuke plant though - almost always way more than anybody thinks starting out. Also, the safety regulations and requirements make nuclear energy more expensive to generate - about 4 times the staff is required vs. other forms of power generation.
As for solar, it's really capacity limited at the moment, there are not enough solar energy systems being made to satisfy demand.
Switching to new energy sources takes time and money since new industries have to be built up to serve the new energy source.
