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 utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothing, enjoying TV, cooking dinner. All while reducing 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 considerable, numerous property owners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably reduce and even eliminate your electrical bills
Whether you're a property owner, company, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can make up a big part of your monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your utility bills and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Make a terrific return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the finest methods to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity bill cost savings, the average American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the previous 10 years, property electrical power costs have gone up by an average of three percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and protect versus unforeseeable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're a business or homeowner with changing capital, going solar also helps you better projection and manage your costs.
#4 Boost your house worth
Multiple studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher property values and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, need for homes geared up 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 part of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price changes in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a great method to reduce 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 typical domestic photovoltaic panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are essential parts of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that decide to run properly. Services are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of customer purchasing choices, developing goodwill and improving organisation results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Many homeowners select to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The utility companies are well-known for their changing and unreliable electricity prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can calculate just how much electricity will be generated, and most importantly, at what cost, 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 Does Alternative Energy Benefit The Economy And The Environment?
Please Explain For Both:
Thanks In Advance :)
Alternative energy can be good for the environment and the economy several ways. Common sources of energy, especially in the developing world are based on the burning of fossil fuels. The byproduct of this process is a high output of Carbon into the air. It's been discovered that such emissions are primary causes for acid rain as their are incorporated into the cycle of precipitation and evaporation in neighboring region. This is called a negative externalities as it generates a negative effect on the regions surrounding the source of emissions. This has effects on industries from agriculture and forestry to fishing. This is a basic example, and I'm sure you could find many case-specific examples if you spent the time doing the research.
Alternative sources of energy like geothermal power, wind power, hydro power and solar power open the door to a whole new phase of expansion in the energy sector. Thousands of jobs can be created to thus help the economy. Energy trading between countries is one of the most profitable traded commodities, and generating energy through renewable (free) resources like wind and the sun can only be a positive if they increase the amount of energy available to be consumed and used.
Everything from appliances to cars require energy and as developing nations around the world become more advanced, the need for energy will only increase.
Essays can be written on this with many more examples.
What Has Renewable Energy Done For Us In The Past?
Over usuage of renewable energy resources have resulted in deforestation of our forest lands.
Hydroelectric energy has resulted in endangering the salmon due to dams built on water ways and polluting the rivers due to impounding the water.
Photovoltaic energy from solar cells is not a true "renewable" energy. It cost more in pollution to make the solar cells than the other sources of nonrenewable energy. The same is true of Wind Generators.
How Can I Convert My Homemade Solar Panel (15.3 Dcv And 3 Amp) To Ac?
I Made My Own Solar Panel At Home And Im Trying To Use It To Power An Ac Fan Or Something Small Like That. If You Have Any Tips Or Tricks Or Specific Inverters That Might Help Me Out, Let Me Know. Thank You
How did you measure the 15.3 volts and 3 amps? Do you mean 15.3 volts at 3 amps? Or do you mean 15.3 volts open circuit? If you haven't measured it under load, now is the time to do it.
Assuming you measured it under load, you have about 45 watts of power at the panel.
Motors draw more current at start up than they do while running. So you need 2-3 times the running current at start up.
Do you plan to use a battery? Or directly connect the panel to the inverter? Charging a suitable battery through a charge controller will give you a lot more stable results.
Consider getting a 12 volt fan (sold for truck/RV usage). This would avoid a number of potential headaches with the inverter idea. 15 watts or less is my guess. If the voltage runs too high you can always add a power resistor to drop the voltage.
But if you really want the AC, note the following:
-You lose power in the inverter. Probably quite a bit. An inverter draws power even if it isn't supplying power to anything.
-Any cheap inverter will probably act "squirrely" under under volt & over volt conditions. Hooking a panel directly to an inverter sounds like a recipe for problems.
Which Manufacturing Company(Not Installing Company) Makes The Best Solar Energy Panel?
i know you didn't ask about installing, so i apologize but thought i would point you towards this website that has a wealth of info and helps calculate how many panels, how much space is needed and other details, in case you didn't know of it. it is more centered towards installs though. i'm looking into this as well right now and found this site to be rather useful though.
How Is Convection, Percipitation And Fossil Fuels A Form Of Solar Energy?
fossil fuels were either vegetation or marine microbes. the energy in them, they got it from the sun and thats the energy in fossil fuels.
for precipitation cloud formation is necessary. clouds form because of water evaporating from the earth and evaporation is caused by solar energy. here the solar energy is converted into kinetic energy of water molecules. the KE is converted to potential energy when they form clouds. the pe is converted into the ke of rain or snow or hail during precipitation.
convection means a type of heat transfer. in the case of air, the particles of air obtain heat from the earths surface, heated by the SUN. then they move up(ke). then a low pressure is created which is filled by surrounding air and that is wind.
