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 homeowner to use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while decreasing 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 substantial, many property owners discover that the benefit, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably decrease or even remove your electrical expenses
Whether you're a property owner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can make up a big portion 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 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your energy costs and you'll still save a great deal of loan.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy bill cost savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical power prices have gone up by an average of three percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect against unpredictable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a service or house owner with rising and falling cash circulation, going solar also assists you better forecast and manage your expenses.
#4 Increase your home value
Numerous research studies have actually discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key element 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 price fluctuations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will eliminate three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are essential parts of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that select to operate responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of consumer purchasing decisions, producing goodwill and improving service results.
#9 Start Saving 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 money down.
Many house owners opt to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. 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 houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The energy companies are infamous for their fluctuating and undependable electrical energy rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and easy math, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical power will be generated, and most notably, at exactly what cost, for a minimum of 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.
- Low, fixed payments each month
- System insurance for 20 years, including maintenance
- Flexible end-of-term options, including system upgrade, lease extension, and free panel removal
Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)
- We own the solar panel system
- $0 down for installation
- Customers only pay for the solar energy that they use
- Customer pays for the system upfront and owns the system
- System monitoring and maintenance for 20 years
- Receive 30% federal tax credit
- See a return on investment within 7-10 years
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
How Much Does A Solar Energy System Cost And Are Their Still Tax Breaks?
Hello, I Have Been Wanting To Buy Solar Panels For A Long Time, Just Bought My Own Home So I Finally Have A Place To Do It!
Just Wondering How Much Do They Cost On Average For A 1300 Square Foot House And Is There Anything That Would Help Me Implement Getting Them Like Tax Breaks?
First tax breaks for installing solar panels are primarily based upon local energy companies and the state in which you live. You will find some more specific information about incentives using the sources below. Some of the incentives will be specific to your situation.
Secondly every system is custom designed primarily based upon your usage and needs. This is why you see the cost of a PV system is based upon units (kw)
But you should also know that "solar energy" comes in 2 forms: light and heat. We convert the light to electricity using photovoltaic panels that have a commercial efficiency between 5% to 20%. We convert the sun's heat to .... heat using solar thermal panels that are far cheaper to make and install. Because they are also up to 80% efficient and making hot water can consume 30% of a household's energy they typically have a payback period 4 times faster than the PV panels.
Solar thermal panels come with a built in energy storage system (the hot water tank) while batteries or a grid tie are the only way deal with excess light energy from a PV system. A good time to make the decision to purchase a solar hot water system is at the end of the warranty period of your current water heater.
So you will want to look at costs and incentives for both types of panels.
This Q & A forum is probably not the best place for what should essentially be a more specific search (see sources below) but you will see in many places the "average" cost of an installed PV system as it slowly becomes lower: https://emp.lbl.gov/sites/all/files/pv_s...
Here are two views on the cost of a solar hot water system:
5-10 Reasons Why Solar Energy Is Better Than Fossil Fuels Please Answer!!!!!?
I Need 5-10 Reasons Why Solar Energy Is Better Than Fossil Fuels. Please Answer Because This Is For An Argumentative Essay Due Tomorrow For Me!
1) Fossil Fuels can be used 24 hours per day, while solar energy can only be "harvested" during daytime.
2) Fossil Fuels work rain or shine, while solar power is limited to periods of clear sky or thin clouds.
3) Fossil Fuel power production plants require only a few dozen acres to provide continuous power to hundreds of thousands of homes, while solar power requires thousands of acres of farmland or desert (flat areas) to produce the same amount of power.
4) Fossil Fuels contain energy that can be moved anywhere and used anytime, while solar energy must be harvested in real time and used in real time, because we lack the battery capacity to store enough solar energy for times when no sunlight is available.
5) Fossil Fuels are cheap and abundant, with a worldwide estimate of over 100 years of oil, 250 years worth of natural gas, and as much as 1000 years worth of coal, all in our current proven reserves. Solar power will be available for several billion years, but takes an enormous amount of land and expense to use.
6) Fossil Fuels provide the resources necessary for manufacturing everything from clothing to plastics and cannot be replaced by solar power, so fossil fuels will still need to be mined and tapped even if solar power could provide enough power to replace fossil fuels.
7) Fossil fuels work anywhere on the planet, including areas that have little sunlight due to latitude or normal climate (cloudy, foggy, etc). Norway, Sweden, Finland and the northern half of the USSR could not depend upon solar power in the winter when days are either extremely short or non-existent (above the arctic circle).
8) Fossil Fuels can replace solar energy, but solar energy cannot replace fossil fuels. In order to be sure that we have enough energy available always, fossil fuel power plants have to be ready to go all the time, which means that mining and drilling must continue so that there will be a ready supply of fuel for the fossil fuel power plants.
9) Oh, wait. You wanted to know why solar energy was better, not fossil fuels. My bad.
Solar Energy For Brooding(Poultry) Purpose? Any Idea How To Develop One?
This is one of the classic Permaculture design tutorials; so get on a permaculture course. I recommend any books by Patrick Whitefield http://www.patrickwhitefield.co.uk/
eg put the chicken house on the north of a greenhouse - provides fodder, heat, extra water harvesting. & extra CO2 & compost material from chicken help plants grow .
What Are Some Rising, Or Already Well Established, Solar Or Wind Power Companies?
International Companies Are Acceptable As Well. Does Anyone Know Of Any Companies Which Are In The Solar Or Wind (Or Any Alternative Source Of Energy) Power Industry? Or Any Innovative Companies As Well.
I think rather than asking people here you'll get better results by searching for the answer in Google.
A Question For Creationists...?
Why Do You Denounce The Theory Of Evolution Simply Because You Think That It Contradicts The Bible?
The Heliocentric Theory (Ie, The Theory That States That The Sun Is The Center Of Our Solar System And The Earth Revolves Around It) Contradicts The Opening Passages Of Genesis So Much More Than The Theory Of Evolution Does, Yet You Don'T Deny This Theory Because It Has Been Observed And Objectively Proven Countless Times Over.
Besides, Evolution Only States That The Genetic Makeup Of A Group Of Organisms Changes Between Successive Generations. It Makes No Claims About How Life Began, How The Universe Began, Or How Exactly Life Developed Along The Evolutionary Path. This Obviously Does Not Contradict The Idea That God Created Life, And If You Have Faith In God It Is In No Way A Stretch To Say That He Guided Evolution To Serve His Purposes.
And Just For Clarification: A Scientific &Quot;Theory&Quot; Is Not An Opinion. It Is A Model To Explain Natural Phenomena That Can Be Empirically Observed And Tested. The Colloquial Meaning Of The Word &Quot;Theory&Quot; Is Called A Hypothesis In Scientific Terms, And Evolution Passed That Stage A Long Time Ago.
Gee whiz. What scripture says that the earth is the center of our solar system? That's a new one for me. Show he proof and I won't argue.
..and sure God can guide evolution, but Genesis sounds more like genetic engineering on God's part. For example it says he made modern animals "after their kind," that is similar in DNA structure to their prehistoric counterparts. Ofcourse, it means one could mistakenly apply evolution in this case, as we have.
Also be careful about believing that a theory is proven. On these very same pages and in scientific journal you can find the term String Theory, yet this explanation about the nature of the universe is completely unproven. Evolution is still just a logical suggestion of how life progressed on earth, yet it need not be the only logical suggestion, as so many demand.
