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 home owners to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothing, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are substantial, many home owners discover that the benefit, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically minimize and even remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a house owner, service, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can make up a large portion of your month-to-month expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your energy bills and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power bill cost savings, the average American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the past ten years, property electrical power prices have increased by approximately 3 percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're a service or house owner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise helps you better projection and manage your expenditures.
#4 Increase your residential or commercial property value
Multiple studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and offer more rapidly 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 become more educated 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 key element of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price fluctuations in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added tasks 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. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A typical property solar panel system will get rid of three to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are very important elements of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that opt to operate properly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of consumer purchasing choices, developing goodwill and enhancing organisation results.
#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 money down.
Numerous house owners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- 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 energy companies are notorious for their varying and unreliable electricity prices. There is plainly an upward trend.
With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can determine just how much electrical power will be created, and most notably, at what rate, 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

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 Do Consumers Benefit From Solar Energy?
Homeowners who install solar systems on their houses can reduce the amount of electricity they're using from the power company. In fact, if the system generates more power than what the house needs, the excess electricity is sold back to the power company. This can greatly reduce the homeowner's monthly electric bill - even make it $0.
Why All Solar Panels Must Transmit Energy To A Battery First?
And Not Direct To The Device¡?
The Clearer Question 10 Points! Thanks!
Actually it is not a must.
What happens is that most of the time the voltage/current output of a solar panels is not suitable for most devices (most devices at home use AC power and solar panel produces only DC power) or you need a stable source of energy (available all the time) which you can not get with only a solar panel which output depends on the solar light (unstable power source ).
If you get suitable devices (you can get them in some stores) for solar panels and you do not need a stable power source, you can use solar panels directly, for example, in remote places in normal to use solar panels without batteries to pumps water whenever there is sunlight, the pump has to be a suitable one for solar panel power.
What Part Of The Jacuzzi Would I Hook A Solar Panel Up To In Order To Solar Heat The Water In The Jacuzzi?
It sounds 'hot! We neeed screws...screw bee do and dooo..
(((awww!))).... Now the heat will scream out of the sun, to boil it up!
As long as the panel won't burn off my cutie cookie bun when I dip on it..Or 'can't help to cry out Meoww!!
Good luck brother..
How Is Solar Energy Used In The Us?
What Uses The Most Solar Energy In The Us?
What a great question. I was very interested in finding out this information as well so I had to research it. What I found is that solar energy is the light and radiant heat from the Sun that influences Earth's climate and weather and sustains life. Solar power is the rate of solar energy at a point in time; it is sometimes used as a synonym for solar energy or more specifically to refer to electricity generated from solar radiation. Since ancient times solar energy has been harnessed for human use through a range of technologies. Solar radiation along with secondary solar resources such as wind and wave power, hydroelectricity and biomass account for most of the available flow of renewable energy on Earth.
In what ways is Solar Energy used in the US and what uses the most Solar Energy?
Solar energy in the US can provide electrical generation by heat engine or photovoltaic means, day lighting and space heating in passive solar and active solar buildings, potable water via distillation and disinfection, hot water, space cooling by absorption or vapor-compression refrigeration, thermal energy for cooking, and high temperature process heat for industrial purposes.
It has many many uses as you can see, but none more important than for heating and electrical needs, especially here in US where the demand for power is growing and growing as we begin to find other alternatives, for renewable energy besides gas and oil.
Great question by the way, it helped me also in my research. :p
What Is The Purpose Of Geothermal Energy?
I Am Doing Research Aon Geothermal Energy And Im Sry To Bother Everyone But I Really Need Help And Fast
The "purpose" of geothermal energy? It is but one alternative energy whose purpose is to reduce the use of traditional energy sources. To begin with, do you know WHAT geothermal energy is? "Geo" refers to geology or things of the earth; "thermal" refers temperature. Put together, "geothermal" energy has to do with using the temperature properties of the earth in place of or in the reduction of the use of traditional energy sources.
Pretty much world wide, the earth's soil structures help to moderate the temperature above ground. The "dirt" layers make for a pretty darned good insulation. This means that when it is cold, if you dig deep enough the dirt is not frozen; this is called the freeze level, or freeze point in many building circles in which water pipes must be layed. It also means that when it is hot, if you dig deep enough, the dirt is actually cool/cooler. Like wise, the larger/deeper the body of water, the longer it takes to warm up in the summer and cool down in the winter; in these cases, the temperature of a large/deep body of water can be used as a geothermal energy source. In some very special cases, you might run into a hot spring, or other geological anomly, whose energy can be used; a hot spring is water coming up from the ground that is already warmed.
Probably the most commonly used applications of geothermal energy are building structures into the earth/dirt its self and, using the temperature of the dirt to moderate the temperature of water which is then used within a structure. In building structures into the dirt, some are built completely under ground while others are built into the "side of a hill (dirt) or mountain (rock)". Often water is used to cool a structure in the summer; the water is cooled in buried pipes and then pumped around the structure. Sometimes, water is kept "warm" underground then heated before being used in a heating system for the structure or as hot water in a shower. In this case, the geothermal energy simply reduces the amount of heating required and thus the traditional energy source.
Another type of energy uses a combination of geothermal and solar energy. The water is pumped from the ground at the "warm" temperature of something between 32 and 55 degrees F. It is then "heated" in pipes or drums to between 50 and 80 degrees outside in the sun. Then it is piped inside and further heated for piping around the structure to keep it warm (radiant heat) or for use in a more traiditonal water heater (i.e. showers, washing dishes, etc...).
In most cases, geothermal heat is used as an accompanyment to other energy sources rather than a replacement; it is used to reduce the amount of other energies.
