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 a/c unit, cleaning clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, many property owners find that the benefit, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically decrease or even eliminate your electric costs
Whether you're a house owner, business, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a big part of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity expense cost savings, the average American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the past ten years, residential electrical power rates have increased by approximately three percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect against unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a service or house owner with changing cash circulation, going solar also assists you better forecast and manage your expenditures.
#4 Boost your residential or commercial property value
Several studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater home values and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties equipped with solar 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 element of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market added 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 country. 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 factor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A typical property solar panel system will remove three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are important parts of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that pick to run properly. Services are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of consumer getting choices, producing goodwill and enhancing company results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Numerous property owners choose to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy 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 infamous for their changing and undependable electricity rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can calculate how much electricity will be produced, and most importantly, at exactly what rate, for at least the next 20 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
Costs Of Solar Thermal Energy?
Solar thermal is one of the least expensive and most effective ways to use solar energy.
There are different ways of using it to heat water or your home, some more costly than others. The overall cost will depend on where you live. The more temperate the climate the cheaper it'll be.
for some suggestions and answers to your solar thermal questions.
What Are The Benefits If All Cars Were Electric Versus All Gas?
So Heres My Thought. If All Cars Ran On Electricity, We Would Be Burning More Coal To Produce That Energy And Still Release Co2 Into The Atmosphere, So Whats The Exchange In This Case. Anyone Out There With Education In Environmental Chemistry/Science Be Able To Answer This?
Coal pollution should not increase if most cars switched to electric, and here's why:
1) It takes nearly the same amount of electricity to refine gasoline as it takes to charge electric cars (about 6 kilowatt-hours per gallon of gas, according to US Dept. of Energy.) So if gas usage goes down as EV usage goes up, electricity usage barely changes.
2) Coal usage is already declining. Today it makes up less than half the energy on the grid. This trend will continue. Solar is poised to become less expensive than coal in as little as 10 years from now.
3) Electric vehicles are 3 to 5 times more efficient than gasoline vehicles. More miles on less energy equals less overall pollution, no matter what you burn to make electricity.
Solar Powered Cell Phones?
Solar Powered Cell Phones Are Now Available In China And Prototypes Are In The Making In Germany. How Soon Will This Technology Make It To The Us?
Cell phones normally last a week or longer on a charge so why would you want to leave your cell phone setting in the sun to charge? Not many people stand in the sun with their cell phone hooked on the top of their heads?
This would be a useless product as far as I can tell. There are already portable solar cell phone and laptop chargers in the USA and I am sure in all other countries as well.

Nuclear Vs. Renewable Resources?
Are You Pro Or Anti-Nuclear Energy? Why Or Why Not? Preferably I Wanted To See The Points Of The Other Side - Because I'M An Anti One; I Don'T Want Another Technology That Will Harm The Environment.
Cautiously pro. The nuclear power industry does have an extremely good safety record. Chernobyl was a big exception, and was caused by poor engineering, poor maintenance, and poor training. More people die every year mining coal or drilling for oil than have ever died from nuclear power. However, the big unsolved problem is what to do with the nuclear waste. None of the "solutions" dreamed up so far are satisfactory, so until this is solved I would prefer to leave nuclear power alone and investigate other options (solar, wind, tidal, geothermal). These technologies could become cost effective if enough money is put into the necessary research and development.
Why Is Biofuel The Best?
My Class Is Doing A Debate On What Energy Is The Best. I'Ve Been Assigned To Be A Hippie Who Thinks Biofuel Is The Best Energy Source. I'M Making Signs (For The Hippies) And I Can'T Think Of Any Puns Or Phrases That Promotes Biofuel. I Also Need Possible Information About Biofuel And What They'Re Doing About The Food Shortage. Also, My Classmates Will Ask Tough Questions. So Providing Me With Possible Answers And Hard Questions So I Can Practice Would Be Great. Plus The Puns And Phrases For Biofuel. Thanks In Advance =]
It's not the best. Ethyl Alcohol produces more carbon dioxide than gasoline does. Further, it takes more fertilizer to grow nitrogen intensive corn, thus contributing to the consumption of large amounts of fossile fuels to make the fertilizer. Plus the fertilizer contaminates lakes, streams and the oceans. Biofuel is not the answer to the energy problem.
Mark my words - hydrogen fuel is the answer because combustion of hydrogen produces water and this produces no contamination, does not require the consumption of fossile fuels. Hydrogen could be created using solar power to generate electricity to split pure water into hydrogen gas and oxygen. An engine can be built that does this, splitting water into hydrogen gas through electrolysis and then combusting it with the oxygen which is separated - however, our government and strong corporate interests surpress this knowledge because too much money is at stake by corporate interests to make it happen yet on a large scale. Eventually, it will happen, but its going to take a lot more suffering on the part of humanity before those corporate interests get out of the way of common sense and progress.
