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 house owners to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioner, cleaning clothing, watching TV, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, lots of property owners find that the benefit, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly decrease and even remove your electrical expenses
Whether you're a house owner, company, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can comprise a large part of your regular monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your utility bills and you'll still save a great deal of money.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy costs cost savings, the typical American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 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 capability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical power rates have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a service or property owner with changing capital, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your residential or commercial property value
Several research studies have discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, need 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 key part of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost changes in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar market included 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 country. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A common domestic solar panel system will eliminate 3 to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are essential elements of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that opt to operate responsibly. Companies are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of customer acquiring choices, creating goodwill and enhancing organisation results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Many property owners decide to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility 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 utility companies are notorious for their varying and unreliable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can calculate just how much electrical power will be produced, and most importantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of 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.
- 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 Does Solar Energy Lowers Water Pollution?
I Know Solar Energy Reduces Low Air Pollution, But Idk Anything About Low Water Pollution?
Solar energy reduces water pollution by not creating pollution at all. The more energy created by solar power, the less is needed from conventional sources (coal, oil, natural gas) that pollute the air and water.
For example, air pollution raises the acidity in rain water, which changes the pH in the resulting runoff which goes into rivers and lakes. Also, some forms of mining or drilling for energy sources can pollute the water; there's a big controversy about a new method of extracting natural gas called "fracking." It has been blamed for a lot of water pollution in some areas. Run a search on fracking and you'll find a lot of disturbing videos on YouTube.
Solar, wind, geothermal and tidal energy sources do not generate pollution and should be explored. (Also, they don't result in revenue streams to countries who fund terrorism, another nice side benefit.)
Ok.I Can See Building The Solar Panel For Cheap, But How Much Is The Power Inverter?U Need To Change Dc To Ac.?
Those sites that advertise you can build your own solar panel cost effectively are misleading. http://www.nlcpr.com/Deceptions6.php
But to answer your question, an inexpensive inverter that's intended to plug into the cigarette lighter socket in a car is about $50 - but you can often find something for $19.99 on sale. Here are some examples (I don't endorse these, it's just an example): http://www.newegg.com/Store/SubCategory....
How Can You Terraform Mars Without A Moon, And With No Fossil Fuels, How Do You Think It Will Turn Out?
How Can You Terraform Mars Without A Moon, And With No Fossil Fuels, How Do You Think It Will Turn Out?
Why worry about fossil fuels? There's solar panels, nuclear power, possibly fusion, thermal differential...
And why is a moon important? Mars doesn't have oceans, so zero need for tides.
You do need to worry about the near vacuum for an atmosphere, weak gravity, no molten core (weak to nonexistent magnetic field), incoming meteoroids, radiation and few other things that makes life their awkward.
How Much Does It Cost To Get Solar Panels For Your Home? Where Do You Find It, Is This Available Everywhere?
On average, a turn key photo voltaic system will cost you about $4 per Watt. There may be some incentive rebate offers by your state, local government and possibly your electricity provider to help ease the cost of installation.
As to solar energy being available everywhere, for the most part, it is. However, different areas have a better solar production level than others. Arizona often rates as one of the best states for installing PV systems. Florida is also a good state too. On the other hand, areas around Seattle might not do so well.

What Are Some Reliable Sources Arguing Against Wind And Solar Power As Renewable Energy Resources?
I Am Writing A College Level Research Paper Arguing That Wind And Solar Power Are Not Reliable Renewable Energy Resources, Especially For Large Scale Energy Production. There Is No Lack Of Information On The Internet. My Problem Is Finding Reliable Sources That I Can Quote And Cite And Also Argue Against These Wind And Solar Energy. Ideally, These Sources Would Relate To Location/Climate Problems, Low Energy Production, High Construction/Maintenance Costs. I Am Also Writing About Biomass And Hydroelectric Power Being A Better Solution So A Source Comparing These With The Wind And Solar Power Resources Would Also Be Very Beneficial. If There Is Anyone Out There Who Knows Some Sources I Can Use I Would Appreciate Any Help.
You do have a problem as few, if any, reliable sources would count these proven resources out of any plausible energy production equation. The costs have been dropping drastically and the efficiencies increasing rapidly. Both wind and solar power sources are currently in use around the world as alternatives to the use of finite consumable fuels. Hydro-electric and biomass production should be looked at as additional means and not as either / or replacements. The goals are the same, an infinite source of affordable energy that does little to no damage to the environment.
Personally, and take it as such, I would like to see all avenues of renewable resources funded as much as possible. I think the answer is not going to be found in one form of energy but in a combination of many. Linking the best forms to their most suitable use would be a likely means for gaining the best possible outcome while incurring the least harm.
Even here in Alaska, solar has found many uses, wind farms are being purposed and hydro-electric is on the horizons. Diversity just may be the answer while these new forms of energy continue to evolve.
