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 air conditioner, cleaning clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, numerous residents find that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically lower or even eliminate your electrical expenses
Whether you're a house owner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can comprise a large part of your monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your utility bills and you'll still save a lot of money.
#2 Make a terrific return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy bill savings, the typical American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electricity rates have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and safeguard against unforeseeable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a service or house owner with changing capital, going solar likewise assists you better projection and manage your expenses.
#4 Increase your home worth
Multiple research studies have discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater property worths and offer more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed 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 an essential component of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with 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 nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a great way to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A common residential photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are essential components of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Significantly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that decide to run responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of consumer acquiring choices, developing goodwill and enhancing company outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Lots of property owners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility 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 companies are well-known for their varying and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can compute how much electricity will be created, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for at least 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.
- 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
What Emerging Technologies Will Make The Solar Energy Safer,More Usable, More Efficient, Cleaner, Etc?
Probably the biggest difference coming down the road in solar is battery storage. Tesla promises cheap battery storage in the next several years. This could be a real game changer. I even know some who were considering a generator installation and are looking into a battery backup for the house instead. At that point even with a modest amount of solar collectors makes some sense as a method to gather energy over time for emergency use.
The long sought goal of cheaper solar panels are becoming a reality. What is needed in the market now is innnovation on the permitting and installation. For this a modular design that can be approved at the factory rather than at the home would be one method
I Need To Make A Solar Cooker For Science Class. Any Suggestions?
We Need To Boil Water Using No Electricity, Just Solar Energy. Please Help Me Out!
Take a look at these things called "sun ovens", when I was in Haiti, we got them to about 250-300 degrees fairly regularly, depending on where you live it would be possible to boil water with something of a similar design.
I Have An Idea And I Want To Know If It Can Work. Thx Engineers.?
An Airport That Runs Only On Solar Power. Every Roof Has Solar Panels To Power It During The Day And It Has A Fleet Of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (Uav) That Are Solar Powered And Have Energy Collectors. During The Day They Fly Around In Circles And Collect Energy All Day Long And Then At Night They Set Down And Connect To A Grid To Power The Airport. A Completely Green Airport. So Besides Costs Are There Any Reasons Why This Wouldn'T Work And Of Course They Would Use Normal Electricity As A Backup Or Even Dual Mode So That Part Of An Airport Uses Electricity(Computers/ Half The Lights) And The Other Parts Like (Escalators And The Other Lights )Would Use Solar Power.
Well, there are 3 things you need here: How much energy an average airport uses, how much surface area it has, and how much energy you get from sunlight per surface area. Then assuming you have enough space on the airport to provide for its energy needs, you can look up the average price for solar cells and how much it would cost to cover it. Then you can see how many years you expect those cells to last (20 years), and calculate the costs of that vs. buying electricity from the grid for 20 years.
The bottom line:
1) It's a nice sentiment, but yes, the main problem is that it would still be too expensive.
2) I can tell you right now that the UAV's will spend all their energy flying around and will not contribute to the charge of the airport. Remember the amount of energy you get from solar is dependent on the amount of surface area of direct sunlight you are covering. Assuming you don't have football court sized UAVs, they will be useless for solar harvesting.
If You Were The Energy Czar Of Your State, Where Would You Invest Your Money?
Why? And Can You Explain Fossil Fuel Vs. Renewable Fuels
Fossil fuels are not replenished - once oil, natural gas and coal are taken from the earth and burned, they are gone forever. Renewable energy sources are geothermal, biomass, wind and solar. They never run out.
Of the renewable energy sources, geothermal is by far the most practical at this point in time. Solar and wind are sexy, but they are still in development. Geothermal is here and viable - and it works. So that is where I would put my money. To learn more go to the site below.
Solar-To-Hydrogen Energy The Future?
I Read This Interesting Article Of Using The Suns Heat To Break Water Into Hydrogen And Oxygen Molecules Instead Of Fossil Fuels And I Think Its A Great Idea. What Do U Guys Think?
Looks like an interesting idea.
I've done my best to not be engulfed on oil consumption. I take public transportation to work everyday. I recycle and the car I own is a Prius.
I"m all for green ideas :D
