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 daily life: running your air conditioner, washing clothing, seeing TV, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, numerous residents find that the convenience, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably decrease and even eliminate your electrical expenses
Whether you're a house owner, company, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can comprise a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your energy bills and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Earn a great return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy expense savings, the typical American property owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the previous 10 years, domestic electricity prices have actually increased by approximately 3 percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and secure versus unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a business or homeowner with fluctuating cash circulation, going solar likewise assists you much better forecast and handle your expenditures.
#4 Boost your house worth
Several studies have discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties 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 key element of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price changes in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with 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 jobs in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a terrific way to decrease 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 common property photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are essential parts of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding services that opt to run properly. Organisations are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of consumer acquiring choices, creating goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Numerous property owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electrical energy-- 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 utility companies are infamous for their changing and undependable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and basic math, we can compute just how much electrical power will be created, and most notably, at exactly what price, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed 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

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
To Get Into Renewable Energy, What Is The Best Degree For Me To Study?
Is It Better To Study 'Green Energy Technology' At Leicester Uni, Or Study An Engineering Degree, Probably Electrical Eng?
Or If There Are Any Other Courses You Suggest....? And Why?
Or Is There Any Point Wanting To Go Into The Renewable Energy Sector? Will We Ever Actually Turn To Green Energies? Or Will Big Oil/Gas/Nuclear Companies Rule What We Do, And Not Allow Us To Move Forward In A Green Way?
If you REALLY want to help out the renewable energy sector, become a top-notch electrical engineer. Then, revolutionize our capacitor technology.
That is one of main things keeping renewables as a second-tier resource. With wind farms and solar stations especially, our present capacitor capabilities will forbid them from ever becoming anything more than an aid. They will NEVER be able to replace all the coal/oil/gas/nuclear... unless you go out and design us some rockstar capacitors. Inefficient energy storage is the killer.
And those companies don't "rule what we do." C'mon now. Look at what renewables are actually capable of with our present technology. They are not a fantastic cure-alls.
Besides, power companies are diversifying their sources more and more everyday. GE and AREVA are huge energy players, and both are integrating renewables into the designs. Our energy sources will have to play nice with each other until our technology progresses further. It's not all or nothing.
How Do Solar Wind Affect Electrical Circuits? ?
The solar winds are basically a large amount of plasma, or ionized gas, filled with highly-energized protons and electrons. They can be pretty fast at times; a solar event in 2005 launched protons at Earth so energetic that they got here in only about 23 minutes, meaning they were going at roughly one third the speed of light. Most of these, however, take about 24 to 48 hours to reach us. When they reach the Earth they disturb its magnetosphere, causing it to warp and deform. If you've take a Physics class then you know that moving magnetic fields produce electrical current. Even in electronic equipment that isn't plugged in, a strong enough magnetic field will induce a current. Geomagnetic storms are strong enough to disrupt satellites and overload power lines and electronics on Earth through this mechanism. They also cause the Aurora Borealis by exciting various elements in Earth's upper atmosphere.
EDIT: True, only EM radiation effects electronic equipment. But the protons and electrons from solar winds are moving charged particles, meaning they produce a magnetic field as well. So they can also effect equipment on the ISS. Atoms, on the other hand, have nothing to do with this unless they are ionized, because that means they would have a charge and, therefore, a magnetic field.
As for wavelength, the shorter the wavelength the more energy there is. Assuming more energy means a stronger magnetic field then, therefore, there will be more electronic disruption.
Lastly, I do not believe this has anything to do with the Photoelectric Effect.
If Solar Energy Is Really The Way Of The Future, Why Does The Government Need To Subsidize It?
The real problem is the Democrats at all levels think they're technically astute and want to play with other people's money, while kicking back some to themselves, of course.
Why Solar Energy Is Not Used In Africa?
How Could They Develop It?
I'm answering this from Botswana using a small solar panel(150 USD), and satellite internet. The small panel is enough to power 5 energy saving bulbs, laptop, and charge cell phone for 5 or so hours per day (We do have cellphones in Africa). Its used small scale everywhere i work in A. but like the rest of the world very few big projects. Capital outlay,and storing the energy are challenges. The 12 V lead/acid battery I'm using is not a good answer for big projects, not green either

Solar Energy (Thermal And Photovoltaic) Diferences Between The Conditions In North And South Europe
I Need To Do Some Report About The Differences Between The Conditions For North And South Europe To Use The Solar Energy.
All Data, Like The Energy At Places, The Advantages, Everything Is Welcome.
Send Me Links, Or Other Things.
There are maps to show how much solar energy is available on average per day for the planet. Solar energy return is also dependent on tracking the sun. Tracking can be applied on solar thermal and photovoltaic. Solar thermal is more economical when scaled up in MW. Solar thermal can also provide night time energy using salt ponds for heat storage.
