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 utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, cleaning clothing, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, lots of homeowners find that the convenience, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably reduce and even eliminate your electric costs
Whether you're a property owner, business, or nonprofit, electricity expenses can make up a large part of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll create free 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 minimize your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power bill cost savings, the typical American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical energy rates have increased by approximately three percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect versus unpredictable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a business or property owner with rising and falling capital, going solar also helps you much better forecast and manage your expenses.
#4 Increase your property value
Several research studies have actually found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater home values and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, demand for homes equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a terrific way to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A normal residential solar panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are very important parts of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that select to operate properly. Companies are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of consumer acquiring choices, creating goodwill and enhancing company results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Lots of homeowners opt to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
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 well-known for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can compute what does it cost? electrical power will be generated, and most significantly, at exactly what price, 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.
- 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

Sorry the answer is pretty bad :(
Which Is Better Tidal, Wind Or Solar Energy?
Ok So This Has Been Bothering Me For A While And I Can'T Seem To Find Any Good Resource Websites To Find The Answer. So Which Works Better? Please Give Me A Good Reason For Why That Works Better, Thanks!
It really depends on where you live, but under most circumstances Solar Energy would be the best bet.
The Sun shines everyday (except of course during certain seasons in certain places; this is the exception)
Wind may or may not blow everyday (except of course for specific areas where wind is more definitive)
What I did when I was trying to find a renewable resource to add supplemental energy to my home, was to monitor the weather and take a statistical analysis of what happened. Its a lot of work, but it is a lot of money to have a renewable energy source.
One website that I used during this process was:
This website will allow you monitor the average wind speeds in your area.
This website will allow you to find information on the amount of solar radiation that your area gets.
Once you find out the averages for both, then find each of the forms of energy that fits into your budget and compare how much energy would be produced from each one.
That is the only way you could properly have a definitive answer to this question.
How Does Energy Consumption Affect The Environment?
Energy consumption means that energy must be produced. Unfortunatly we currently don't have a way to produce energy (for the masses) that does not have a negative impact on the environment. Coal Burining creates electricity but pollutes the air HEAVILY! Nuclear doesn't pollute the air but has storage issues. Oil and natural gas are cleaner but still produce carbons. Producing gasoline for cars also takes energy from power sources. Buring gas pollutes the air as well. Solar and wind energy do work but are currently not sustainable for our needs.
Why Is Solar Power The Best Course Of Energy?
Solar energy is the energy radiating form the sun that humans have learned to harness and use to power numerous things. You may have heard of solar panels for houses. These are panels that are used as a power source for houses as opposed to an electrical system. But a lot of houses use both.
The thing is solar energy is abundant. Why because the sun is always there and always giving off it's heat and energy. Once solar energy is converted it's uses are practically unlimited. Applications of solar energy include: space heating and cooling through solar architecture, potable water via distillation and disinfection,daylightingting, hot water, thermal energy for cooking, and high temperature process heat for industrial purposes.
How Much More Solar Energy Can Be Collected From A Helicopter Blade Than Cabin Mounted?
This is a fairly esoteric question. Are we to assume that the efficiency of the collectors is the same in both locations? Are we also to assume that there is no additional transmission losses for power moving from a rotating blade to the stationary body of the aircraft?
Then the first point would be which has the bigger area of solar cells. If we are also to assume that the area of both are approximately the same but the "body cells" are essentially vertical while the blade cells are essentially horizontal. Then the issue becomes which are most optimally aimed. At noon the horizontally mounted blades would be optimally aimed. At most other times of the day they would receive some light but would not be optimally aimed in two directions.
The vertical cells would be ineffective for more than ambient light on the "dark side" of the craft. If we then assume that the body cells would be doubled to account for this then we would also have to notice that at no time during the maximum insolation of the day are they optimally aimed. But by now we are so deep into assumptions it is going to be quite risky to hazard a guess about total exposure or percentages.
