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 a/c, washing clothes, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, many property owners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically lower or even eliminate your electric costs
Whether you're a house owner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can comprise a large portion of your regular monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create 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 lower your utility bills and you'll still save a lot of money.
#2 Make a great return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the finest ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs cost savings, the average American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electricity costs have increased by approximately three percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and secure against unforeseeable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a business or property owner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and handle your costs.
#4 Increase your home worth
Multiple studies have actually found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater property values and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, need for residential or commercial properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial element of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is an excellent method to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A typical residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to 4 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are very important parts of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that opt to run responsibly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of consumer buying decisions, creating goodwill and improving company outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Many property owners opt to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar company for electricity-- 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 business are notorious for their varying and unreliable electricity prices. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can compute what does it cost? electrical energy will be produced, and most notably, at exactly what price, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired 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.

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
Do These Solar Panels/Systems/Devices Exist?
I'Ve Been Having Electricity Issues In My Country Lately Due To Overuse, So I Was Wondering, Since Its Sunny Throughout The Whole Year Why Not Use Solar Energy?
For A Start I Just Want To Buy/Build A System That Can Be Placed On The Rooftop That Would Either Be Connected With A Power Cord To My Room Where I Can Charge My Iphone And Laptop Or It Would Charge A Battery And Then Use It To Charge Them.
In Brief, I Just Want To Know Is It Possible And Where Can I Find Those (Online Preferably) To Be Compatible With Charging My Iphone And Laptop.
There are plenty of solar panels for charging small devices but they are mostly for trickle charging to stretch out your use, there are larger ones that fold out which are sold to campers and hikers that could perhaps charge your device instead of just make them last longer but you will find that it does take longer to do so than when charging from the wall socket. You should perhaps encourage your parent to pay the electricity bill.
Why Is Solar Power Good For Suburban Areas?
I Don'T Know Why Solar Would Be Great For Suburban Areas. Can You Tell Me?
There are a lot of Roofs that are Wasted Space put solar panels on them it helps save you money and lowers the need for more Fossil Fuel or Nuclear Energy Power Stations. I have 20 panels on my roof I no longer get a Bill in Australia as well as we get paid for the power we put into the Grid only 8 Cents a KW but that's better then Paying
Wanting To Add Solar Panels To My Home?
I Have A Home In Manchester Tn And We Have Been Slowly Remodeling The Home. It Is About 2100 Sq Ft Of Living Space. Our Normal Electric Bill Is About 150 A Month. We Would Like To Add Some Solar Panels To The Home To Help Reduce The Amount Of The Bill. How Many Panels Do I Need And What Would Be The Cost? I Am Not Trying To Go Completely Of The Grid But I Would Like To Start Somewhere And Maybe Over The Years Be Able To Add. What Is Your Recommendation For A Reasonable Cost Of Under 2 To 3 K??
Unless there has been some major breakthrough in solar panel efficiency - Forget it.
I had looked at some "utility interactive" systems where the electricity generated by the solar panels went through a special inverter and into the electrical system of the house, any power you didn't use went backwards through the meter and into the grid.
I figured that even if it was sunny every day, it would take about 20 years to break even on the system. That is, if I had invested $5,000 in a small system, to save $5,000 off the electric bill would take 20 years. If I had $5,000 to invest, this wouldnt be the place! It would take much more than 20 years of electrical savings to match even a modest investment. Then, don't forget what happens if 10 years from now the inverter or some of the panels fail and need replaced.
Invest in fluorescent lights, maybe even LEDs. You will see a much quicker return on investment. Install more insulation, put in a heat-pump system.
I appreciate you desire to save some energy, solar just isn't going to be worth doing, at least not yet.
Why Is Solar Energy Still So Expensive?
The best I can tell, there would be about a $25,000 cost to install 100 sq ft. of solar panels on my southerly facing rooftop. If I consider that the system has an economic life of at least 25 years, then the math is pretty simple. It will cost me about $1000/ year to own the solar panel system. I can expect a 40-60% reduction in my electric bill which runs me about an average of $700/month since my husband starts to sweat at 70 degrees. Conservatively then, I should save a minimum of $280/month and I begin saving money after about month four which is also about the same time as my Tax Freedom Day!
Why Should More People Use Solar Power And Wind Power?
Why Should More People Use Solar Power And Wind Power? And What Are The Benefits Of Both Of Them? Does It Save You Money, How Much And How Much Will It Help The Earth If One Person Decided To Use Them? What About A Hundred People? What Would Happen If Everyone And Every Building, Cars, Trains, Airplanes, Everything In The Whole World Started Using Solar/Wind Power?
Solar panels are not as "Eco friendly" as you may think. Solar panels are a semi conductor type device as as such the manufacturing process generates lots of Hazardous Waste that need to be disposed of.
Solar panels produce DC power which has limited use in homes wired for use with AC power. Thus expensive inverters are required to change the DC into usable AC. It is possible to use some Solar generated DC in a home. One efficient way of DC usage would be to use a separate DC lighting circuit. This would eliminate the need for an expensive DC to AC inverter and operate more efficiently.
The down side of using DC is the necessity of rewiring a home or having DC operated equipment.
There is also the issue of where to install wind and or solar systems as not all homes are ideally located.
System installation is expensive and is another source of maintenance expenses a home owner must bare. Consider the damage that can be done by a hail storm to a solar system.
Then there is the long time required to break even and recover the installation costs. Without significant subsidies one can easily spend 10's of thousand of dollars which requires decades to break even. Traditional electric providers by comparison provide low cost maintenance free electricity.
Phillip is pointing out an obvious problem.....there are too many people on the planet. Billions of people demanding resources.
