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 property owner to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioner, cleaning clothes, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are significant, numerous residents discover that the convenience, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly lower or even eliminate your electrical expenses
Whether you're a property owner, company, or nonprofit, electricity expenses can make up a big part of your regular 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 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your utility costs and you'll still save a great deal of loan.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power bill cost savings, the typical American house owner settles their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electricity costs have actually increased by an average of 3 percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a business or house owner with fluctuating money circulation, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home or business worth
Numerous studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher home worths and sell more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential component of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate variations in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry added 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 development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a terrific method to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A typical domestic photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are essential parts of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding services that choose to operate properly. Organisations are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of customer purchasing choices, producing goodwill and improving service outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Many homeowners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This means that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar service provider 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 business are notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electricity rates. There is clearly an upward trend.

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
If Solar Energy Is So Free Why It Is Not Widely Used??
Solar energy is widely used by nature and has long been used by man for drying and heating. However, I suspect you're speaking of electricity from solar energy. The short answer is that the equipment is rather expensive from a capital cost point of view.
Most photovoltaic (PV) systems cost on the order $7 to $12 per Watt of capacity. By the time you divide that installation cost over the actual electricity produced by the system in the 20 to 30 years of its life, you end up paying $.35 to $1.00 per kWh vs the $.10 to $.30 your electric company charges you.
These systems are getting cheaper though, and there are other technologies, such as concentrating solar power, that in the long term will be as cheap as coal or natural gas plants. In the meantime, there are a variety of federal and state programs that will help individuals and corporations pay for solar energy equipment.
What Are Some Ways That Solar Energy, Wind Energy And Food Energy Are Used In Our Everyday Lives At Home?
there are their uses......................
1. we are able to see things or world around us only due to visible light of sun
2. Life exists on earth due to optimum temperature of 10-40 degree which is only possible due to sun..............we also use this heat energy of sun to dry our clothes ,take sun bath and to feel better in winters.
3. wind energy helps to produce electricity in remote areas through wind mills.......,also responsible for rain and season formation,,,,,,, moreover, it has also a entertaining side as - flying kites is only possible due to wind...........
4.food keeps us alive ...........what can i say more
Hope u have met ur answer................
What Is The Cost Of Using Solar Energy?
I Need It 4 A Project Due This Wednesday..........Help Please
Solar is expensive to start and if the sun does not shine not so good. I like the idea and in my area it is impractical but any clean energy helps.
Is It Possible To Power The Whole United States By Solar Power?
I Saw A Movie At School A While Ago That Said We Could Power The Whole United States If We Made A Certain State All Solar Power (I Can'T Remember Which State). Also How Many Watts Does The United States Use That Way I Can Calculate How Many Solar Panels Would Be Needed.
Yes, of the 174 PW of energy that strikes the Earth 86,000 TW reaches the surface. Our global energy consumption is currently 15 TW. True, our current technology can only recover a small fraction of the energy that is available but this is the only source of energy that is greater than the amount of energy that we currently consume.
Current Photovoltaic technology only captures energy in a single wavelength determined by the valence electron shells of the semiconductors used, multiple layer cells can capture more wavelengths by using different semiconductor materials and both dye and quantum dot technology absorbs different frequencies and reemits the energy in the desired frequency. In the past few years, we've seen the efficiency of photovoltaics go from 10% to 42% and 65% is expected soon.
Energy can be stored in numerous ways including chemically in forms that can be used by our current infrastructure. Sandia Labs uses a solar furnace to produce methane, methanol, synthetic gasoline and synthetic diesel from CO2 and H2O.
Nano tubes promises to make artificial photosynthesis a reality and there are several other approaches that are promising.
Keep in mind that all sources of energy on Earth with the exception of nuclear and tidal are solar energy. Very inefficient solar energy and with the case of fossil fuels, accumulated over a long period of time. Also, most of the energy we use was collected by plants through photosynthesis which has a maximum efficiency of 6.6%. This means that current fossil fuels, biofuels, biomass, wave and wind energy are all forms of solar energy at efficiencies of much less than 1%. We only have to achieve minimal improvements of efficiencies in our chemical energy storage methods or other energy storage strategies to access a greater source of energy that what we currently use today.
Theoretically, we should be able to provide for our energy needs through solar power for the foreseeable future and we wouldn't even have to change our cars and factories as the energy could be stored as synthetic liquid fuels. Solar is the only available source of energy that will allow us to grow our industrial and economic base but Solar does require a lot more research and development and the public needs to be educated as to what is possible with solar power and with chemical energy storage.
For economic reasons, other alternate energy forms such as biomass/fuels, hydro, and wind will play a part in our near future but ultimately solar is the only game in town. Note that the use of fourth generation bio-fuels from pyrolysis/gasification of biomass and with biochar carbon sequestration of the pyrolysis/gasification charcoal byproduct will actually be carbon negative and undo some of the damage we've already done to our environment so it's actually necessary to have some gas guzzlers to help undo the damage.
What Is An Albedo, And How Does It Affect Climate Change?
By definition, albedo is the fraction of solar energy (shortwave UV radiation) reflected from the Earth back into space. As far as climate, the more energy reflected back into space, the less UV radiation is absorbed by the Earth.
Factors that increase albedo (cause reflection) are certain types of low layer clouds, aerosols and snow and ice cover as well as non-vegetative land cover. Factors that decrease albedo are vegetative land cover and open oceans and water.
Humans can have a direct influence on albedo by deforestation for harvesting wood and other products, clearing forests and land for agriculture and clearing land for cities and other inhabitant structures. So in addition to the proposed theory that increased greenhouse gasses add to global warming, humankind use of land is also a factor due to the decrease in albedo.
Albedo can be positive climate feedback with regard to snow and ice cover. In other words, if the globe warms, snow and ice will melt which results in lower albedo which enhances further warming. The main question is how much this effect is in comparison to other other climate feedbacks. other albedo feedbacks (some negative) and other climate factors in general. It appears to be a relatively small effect.
