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 homeowner to use the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c unit, washing clothing, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are significant, many residents discover that the convenience, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically minimize and even eliminate your electric expenses
Whether you're a homeowner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can make up a big part of your month-to-month expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll produce 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 energy costs and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy expense savings, the average American property owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, property electrical energy costs have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and secure versus unforeseeable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're a company or property owner with rising and falling capital, going solar also assists you better forecast and manage your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home worth
Several studies have actually found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and offer 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 homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need 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 an essential part of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price changes in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included 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 growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a terrific method to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A normal residential photovoltaic panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are very important components of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding services that decide to run responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are an effective driver of consumer buying decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing service results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Numerous house owners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The energy business are notorious for their varying and undependable electrical energy prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic mathematics, we can compute just how much electrical power will be produced, and most significantly, at exactly what rate, for at least the next Twenty 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 Many Square Feet Of Solar Panel Would It Take To Run A 5 Ton Air Conditioner And How Much Would It Cost?
That would depend on where you put it. If your property currently needs 5 tons of AC to cool it's environment then shielding the building with solar panels will reduce the solar energy hitting the building therely reducing it's cooling needs. So you would need less than 5 tons of AC. But possibly 10 tons of panelling!
Do You Have A Solar Heated Inground Pool?
We Live In Texas And Are Considering Purchasing This Option For Our Pool, But We Want To Hear From Actual Solar Heated Pool Owners So We Can Make An Educated Decision.
I work in a pool store and we sell solar heaters for pools. I assume you mean the system that comes with solar panels as well? If so, you can get plastic solar panels or rubber ones. The plastic ones are cheaper but I would definitely recommend going with the rubber ones, they will last much longer. Also, when setting up the panels you have to be careful - if you lay them vertically, you will void the warranty.
They are an expensive option. A box can be around $300 and large pools are recommended to have 8-10 boxes of them. But you do save on the cost of operating a gas or electric heater, and they have a longer warranty so you won't have to replace them as often (the brand I sell comes with a 15 year warranty). You don't have to go with 8 boxes of the panels, but really the more boxes you buy, the warmer your pool will be.
You can also drop by your local pool store with a list of questions about solar heaters. They should be able to answer all of your questions, and this will help you make your educated decision.
Where Does The Energy Go?

What Can Be Done To Improve Our Useful Energy?
List Ways That We (As Individuals And Members Of Society) Can Increase The Amount Of Time High-Quality Energy Will E Available For Our Use.
Waste heat probably. (I am unsure how this 41% number is arrived at, but I presume you are citing some DOE statistic between the amount of energy 'created; via burning fossil fuels, hydropower, nuclear power, solar, wind etc and how much actually performs useful work.)
Example: You burn gasoline in your car. Some of that energy moves your cylinders up and down. Some of it heats the water in your radiotor system that heats the air either outside your car or outside and in if you circulate air in your car cabin through your heater block, some of it heats up exhaust particles that then heats the air.
Some of that cylinder motion goes through your power train and turns your wheels, but some of it is dissipated as friction amongst your axle bearings (heat again). When you slow down, all the energy of motion becomes heat in your tires, brake pads and the road, but that energy was used for a while so I guess it doesn't count.
Some fraction of electricity generated becomes heat; heating up transmission lines incrementally, heating up wiring in your house, heating up AC to DC transformers (the little power bricks) .
The best way to save power is just not use it in the first place. I only turn up the thermostat on my hot water heater when I am about to use it, but better still woudl be to do without hot water ni the first place (then I don't have a pilot light), but even better would be to just use cold water for everything.
Consume less stuff. People think about doing things aroudn the home to save energy, but don't think everytime they buy something, there is significant energy investment in the manufacture of the goods and shipping them. Recycling is a great idea, but not using the aluminum can or paper in the first place saves far more energy.
Drive less. A hybrid is a nice idea, but if you don't drive in the first place, your mileage goes waay up. Bike, walk or just stay home.
In the end, conservation within the framework of your lifestyle will save an incremental amount of energy, (maybe 10-25% if you really try to be good abvout shutting off lights, turning down the heat, unplugging parasitics like TVs and AC to DC power transformers that power every electronic gadget, recycle) but it takes a fundamental lifestyle change (don't drive, don't purchase in the first place) to really save a lot.

Part 2 (For The Skeptics): Http://Www.Youtube.Com/Watch?V=Zs3kmytra5i&Feature=Relmfu
nuclear energy is probably one of the fastest way to get large amounts of energy possible today besides microwave which is just a certain type of solar power.
the amount of water a nuclear reaction can heat up is many times more then any fossil fuel, wood, or natural gas. sure wind and hydro is "clean" but it doesn't make any were near as much power and unlike fossil fuels nuclear power doesn't pollute the air. that "smoke" they show coming out of the silos is steam.
solar is probably one of the best ways to get energy if the panels are in space and through microwave technology transferred to earth. but then again its all about the money. there is no money in efficiency. that's why crappy american cars break down so easily. you have to buy more, more profit
by the way your ghost film has nothing to do with nuclear energy
Where Is Solar Energy Stored? Like For Bad Weather And For Nighttime ?
Solar energy can be stored in a battery for light
solar energy can be stored as heat in liquids or solids
