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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothing, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while minimizing 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, numerous property owners discover that the benefit, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly lower or even eliminate your electrical costs
Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can make up a large portion of your monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.
#2 Make a terrific return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity costs savings, the typical American house owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, domestic electricity costs have actually increased by approximately 3 percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and protect versus unpredictable increases in electricity costs. If you're a company or property owner with changing money flow, going solar also assists you much better projection and handle your costs.
#4 Boost your house worth
Numerous studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties geared up 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 component of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price variations in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market included jobs 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 development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is an excellent method to decrease 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 normal domestic photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are essential elements of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that opt to operate properly. Companies are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of consumer getting choices, creating goodwill and improving organisation results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no money down.
Numerous house owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility companies are infamous for their varying and undependable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can compute what does it cost? electricity will be created, and most significantly, at exactly what rate, for at least the next Twenty 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
- $0 down for installation
- Customers only pay for the solar energy that they use
- Customer pays for the system upfront and owns the system
- System monitoring and maintenance for 20 years
- Receive 30% federal tax credit
- See a return on investment within 7-10 years
What happens when the contract for my lease is finished?
We provide our customers with a few different options for when their lease contract is up. Customers can upgrade their equipment to the newest solar technology available, extend the agreement, or have the panels removed at no cost.
What is the warranty?
The Lease and PPA include a 20-year warranty during the lifetime of the system. This warranty exceeds that of most other solar installers’ warranties.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Does Solar Help Our Environment?
Solar what? Energy? Solar collectors are generally very dark to absorb as much sunlight as possible, preventing it from reflecting back into space, where it is lost. Eventually all the absorbed energy, whether converted to electricity or not, is converted to heat in the environment, causing global warming to increase even beyond the beneficial rate due to CO2 release. This increases the percentage of land on earth suitable for agriculture.
If You Could, How Would Lessen The Price Of Oil?
It'S 140$ Per Barrel Now, So I Was Wondering If You Could Do Some Changes, What Would You Do To Make Oil Cheaper?
&Quot;Oil Surged Above $140 A Barrel In New York Trading, Compounding Fears That Soaring Inflation Will Hamper A Global Economy Already On The Ropes.&Quot;
So What Would You Do To Change This Huge Problem That Takes A Nice Little Chunk Out Of Your Wallet/Purse.
Well, its a tough issue. But, i have some ideas.
First, we must increase the production of oil. It must go up, but not toooo much. Let's hope that some moderate increases by the Saudis (if they do in the future) can have an impact..I hope..
But I think we should really try to increase alternative energy. We must try to increase solar, wind, and hydrogen power. We should provide incentives to companies (just like how McCain and Obama have offered) that create goods that use alternate energy. Reward companies that make cars with alternate energy. Give tax breaks, etc and fund investment into 'green energy. Also, we must buy more cars with MPGs.
There needs to be incentives to create better MPG cars. Also, if its possible, there needs to be a way to make SUVs more fuel-efficent. If not, then there needs to be rewards and tax cuts for companies that make clean energy vehicles (or ones with great MPG).
Lastly, consumers need to make changes. They need to use more ways of transportation besides cars (bus, train, or maybe carpool if they wanna use cars). Also, consumers can use alternate energy as well and cut back on their usage of vehicles. My ideas and i hope you enjoyed them.
Types Of Solar Energy?
One way to categorize solar energy is by how it is converted into useful forms. There are two types in this category: Passive Solar Energy and Active Solar Energy.
Passive Solar Energy doesn't use mechanical means to collect, store, or distribute the solar energy. For example, a thermosyphon (solar water heater) will use natural convection to circulate the water through the system.
Active Solar Energy uses mechanical devices to collect, store, and/or distribute the solar energy. For example, active solar water heaters use pumps to circulate the water or heat-transfer fluid in the system.
A second way to categorize solar energy is by the type of energy the system will produce. There are two types in this category: Solar Electricity and Solar Thermal.
Solar Electricity is produced using photovoltaic panels. PV panels produce an electric current when light hits them. A solar electric system captures this electricity and transfers it to your homes electric system.
Solar Thermal uses solar collectors to generate heat which can be used for solar space heating, interior solar water heating, or solar pool heating.
Why Is Does The Energy Industry Seem Religiously Opposed To Renewable Energy?
It'S Like We Tell Them &Quot;Hey Guess What Guys This Oil Stuff Is Gonna Run Out Sooner Than Later So We Need To Start Doing Something Else&Quot;
So They Say
&Quot;Ok Lets Do Nuke Power!&Quot;
Well That'S Potentially Very Dangerous, Uses Vasts Amounts Of Water, And Produces Waste That We Don'T Know Exactly How To Dispose Of.
Then They Say
&Quot;Ok, Lets Do Clean Coal!&Quot;
Well &Quot;Clean&Quot; Coal Is Still A Finite Resource, It Still Pollutes The Air, Carbon Sequestration Is Still In Its Experimental Phase, And It Will Entail Environmental Destruction As We Begin To Strip Mine For Coal.
How About A Nice Solar, Wind, And Geothermal Energy Program?
Then They Say
&Quot;Scoff! No Way! We'Re Not Doing That!&Quot;
They Don'T Really Have A Good Reason, Other Than The Fact That They Really Really Like Digging Up Fossils And Burning Them. And If They Can'T Dig Up Fossils Then They Have To Be Digging Up Some Radioactive Rock Somewhere.
Isn'T Renewable The Most Common Sense Choice?
I agree with what everyone else has said for the most part, but would like to add that renewable energies are hard to keep centralized and in the hands of only a few people.
Anyone can put up a wind turbine or solar panel, technically, but you have to be a special kind of someone to build and own a coal power plant or oil refinery.
Why Can'T We Just Switch Over To Solar, Hydro And Wind Power Completely?
The Technology Exist, Why Aren'T We Using It? I'M Not An Eco Freak, But I Don'T Want My Scions To Grow Up In A World Where Mother Nature Is On Crack.
Perhaps "we" as a nation can't switch completely because the infrastructure does not yet exist to support our massive need. But you, and your family, certainly can.
Nearly every community in the US now has a choice in their energy supplier (you may not be able to choose who delivers your energy, but they still offer numerous suppliers). And many of those suppliers offer renewable energy programs. You can choose to purchase a portion of your energy from renewable sources, or all of it.
By choosing a new, environmentally friendly supplier you are not only telling the energy companies that people are interested in renewable energy, but you are using your dollars to help support and expand this infrastructure. The more people choose this option, the more widely available and economically feasible it will become. So tell your neighbors to do the same!
For information on green energy suppliers in your area, contact your energy company (but don't be surprised if they aren't helpful, and don't be discouraged if they tell you it's not available to you - it often really is).
An even better resource is www.green-e.org. They can tell you what green energy options are available in your area.
