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 everyday life: running your a/c, washing clothes, watching TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, lots of property owners find that the benefit, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Leading Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly decrease or even eliminate your electrical bills
Whether you're a property owner, service, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a big portion of your monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power bill savings, the average American property 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 costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the past ten years, residential electrical energy rates have actually gone up by an average of three percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a service or house owner with fluctuating capital, going solar also assists you better forecast and manage your costs.
#4 Boost your house value
Several research studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial part of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market 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 anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a great way to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A normal domestic photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are very important components of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that decide to operate responsibly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of consumer purchasing decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing company results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Many property owners select to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The energy companies are infamous for their varying and unreliable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can determine just how much electricity will be created, and most importantly, at what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 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.

How Does Nuclear Energy Affect The Environment?
I lived in St. Lucie county, Florida. Florida Power and Light has a nuke plant there, on Hutchinson Island on route a1a. The only thing I ever heard of that could be taken as an environment risk was...
1. The water around the outlets was a bit warmer, and in the winter there, a manatee or two would get stuck there. (They shut down the plant and rescue them asap when that happens)
2. The water coming out, was fresh water, and it was released into salty water. It does have an effect on the very local fish population, but it's unclear if they just moved, or died. (No one knows, I checked with fish and wildlife there)
Just so you know, the waste is stored on site. There is no risk of it "getting out".
Now, let's look at the good things.
The nuke plant emits nothing but steam. Coal fired power plants, emit CO2, and traces of mercury.
They can significantly reduce our dependence on foreign oil imports.
Your electricity rates won't go up and down, as the supply of fuel is fixed, unlike natural gas, and oil prices that jump at the whim of traders.
Those are a couple of good things. However, I favor solar and wind energy myself. Big opposition to these by folks stuck on making money from oil, gas, and coal!
Compare Traditional Methods Of Making Electricity Versus Renewable Energy Sources. Is One Method Better & Why?
I Believe That Renewable Energy Sources Is A Better Method, But It Is More Expensive. If You Could Also Provide Statistics/Facts I Would Appreciate It!
Wind power is actually very cheap, but the only problem is it can't provide baseload power. It only provides power when the wind is blowing. However, it can provide power at 7-10 cents per kWh, competetive with coal.
Geothermal is also looking extremely promising, and can also potentially provide affordable power. It can provide power 24/7 as well (baseload power).
Concentrated solar thermal is another great option, and can store energy to be used as baseload. It can be potentially as cheap as coal.
There are others like solar photovoltaic, tidal, etc.
There's no question that renewable energy is preferable to traditional (mainly coal) energy, because it's clean and the fuel source will never run out.
How Is Solar Energy Harnessed Or Gathered?
1. Photovoltaics - You point them up, and the photons, using quantum burrito meals, produce DC. Then it goes to an inverter, and then nobody gives a ****.
2. Concentrated photovoltaics - You get like a lens to focus more sunlight onto the same area of solar panel. A bit more effective, slightly cheaper per watt. Same thing, in the end.
3. Heat engines - A set of mirrors focuses sunlight at a container of molten salt or something, and the salt acts as a heat resovoir to power a heat engine, like a Stirling engine. This is only currently for power plants.
I Need To No What Conventional And Alternative Energy Is?
