Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Numerous house owners choose to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This means that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The utility business are notorious for their changing and unreliable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and basic mathematics, we can determine just how much electrical energy will be generated, and most significantly, at exactly what rate, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).

What Are 5 Advantages And 5 Disadvantages Of Solar Energy?
Hello Yahooers Im Doing A Project On Solar Energy And I Wanted To Know What Are 5 Advantages And 5 Disadvantages Of Solar Energy
extremely inefficient (harvests about 15% of potential energy from sun where coal captures around 50%)
The chemicals used for it are very harmful to environment maybe negate the cleanliness of it once its up
only getting full suns power about 25% of the time (clouds/ night)
in my opinion disadvantages outdo the advantages
Green Energy Project For Environmental Science Class, Solar Panels On The Chrysler Building In Ny?
I Need 3 Types Of Clean Energy For An Environmental Science Project, So Far I Have A Wind Turbine, And Hydroelectric Energy. However, I Need To Figure Out If Solar Panels Could Be Placed On The Eastern Side Of The Top Of The Building In Order To Collect Sunlight. If This Is A Reasonable Idea, What Model Of Solar Panels Should I Use? Is There Any Website You Could Recommend That Would Help Me Set This Up (Approx. Costs To Install/Maintain)?
You want to ruin the look of one of the most beautiful buildings in NYC? Shame on you. Pick somewhere else, perhaps the Guggenheim. [Yeah, I know that some artsy type will complain. But they probably support solar energy, so ignore them.]
On second though, put panels on the Great Kills landfill sight. No one lives there but seagulls. There are no trees or tall buildings to block the light. The panels could be placed on swivels that make them face the brightest source of light, the sun. I know that they work because my Sister-in-Law has them on her farm. Four panels, each four times the area of a ping pong table produce more electricity per year than they use. They sell the rest to the power company.
The biggest problem would be cleaning the panels (seagulls are messy). They could be cleaned as part of a community service program for first-time DWI offenders. If that doesn't stop them from drinking and driving, then put them under the landfill.
Why Shouldn'T Solar Energy Be Harnessed On The Sides Of Sky Scrapers?
The Public Should Take Pride In The Fact That 'Their' Building They Work In Produces A 'Sum' Of Solar Energy, So Why Don'T Skyscrapers Utilize This Energy?
I agree with you that this should be done. As lawyerslastbreath saw in Las Vegas, those casinos have the $$money and should use it for solar panels.....If they can't afford it who can?
How Long Can Solar Energy Be Stored?
Solar energy can be stored for exactly the same amount of time as energy produced from any other means. It depends on the storage device.
If it's not stored in a device like a battery, it's gone. Same as any other type of energy generation. But the thing with solar is its regular downtime from night non-production.
If you compared it to, say, a coal power station, the coal supplies power all the time, but it's still not stored as such, the turbine needs to be kept operating 24 hours a day to keep that supply going, which is usually referred to as base load. It's always there (unless the station breaks down!).
But equally important is that coal power stations HAVE to keep running at near full capacity, as it's very bad for their boilers to be cooled down and heated up. So a lot of that night time power that's generated is simply lost. Not stored. Gone. This is one reason why solar is so important. It produces energy when we need it the most - Daytime. And doesn't waste any while continuing to pump out greenhouse emissions.
