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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioner, cleaning clothes, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, many residents find that the benefit, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably lower and even remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a house owner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can make up a big part of your month-to-month expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your energy expenses and you'll still save a great deal of money.
#2 Earn a great return on your investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power bill savings, the average American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical energy rates have increased by approximately 3 percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure versus unforeseeable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a company or homeowner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise helps you better projection and handle your expenditures.
#4 Boost your home worth
Numerous studies have discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential component of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost fluctuations in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A normal residential solar panel system will remove 3 to 4 heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are very important elements of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that decide to run properly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of consumer purchasing decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing business results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no money down.
Many property owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The energy companies are well-known for their fluctuating and undependable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can determine how much electrical energy will be created, and most importantly, at exactly what rate, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired 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.

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 Is Solar Energy Harnessed (Collected) ?
You can read about solar energy and how it is created and used here:
Which Energy Sources Will Still Be Available When You Are 70?
Solar, geo-thermal, wind, hydro, various fossil fuels, nuclear (fission and hopefully fusion by then), bio-waste fuels.
How Many Solar Panels Do I Need To Run A Pump?
I Plan To Buy Solar Panels Of The Following Configuration:
Sun Force 39110 / 123 Watt - 7 Amps
To Run Through An Inverter, To Produce The 110V I Need To Run The Pump During The Day.
The Pump Is 110V / 7.5 Amps / 0.5 Hp
My Question Is, How Many Solar Panels Would I Need To Run The Pump?
Are you sure you want those panels? It would probably be more cost-effective to get higher-wattage panels. From those specs, it sounds like you need about 800 watts of panels. That's 4 200-watt panels.
I would skip the inverter, and look for a pump that runs off DC. In fact, many AC motors will run off DC, although that's a trial-and-error sort of thing that no one will guarantee. Typically you would lower the voltage input to do so, so a 110-volt AC induction motor would run off maybe 70-80 volts DC, to avoid burning out the motor. But if you get a pump rated for DC, then you'll certainly have something that works right.
What Is A Distributed Resource?
What Is A Distributed Resource (In Terms Of The Environment) Vs A Point Source? I Know Biomass Is A Distributed Resource But What Is The Definition Of &Quot;Distributed Resource&Quot;?
Distributed resource would be an energy source that can be harnessed (effectively) in almost all corners of the world, and doesn't need special conditions to be cost-effective (for instance solar energy is only costs effective in areas with plenty of sun, wind energy in areas with plenty of wind, etc, while biomass, in its many forms, can be successfully harnessed in almost all parts of the world.
What Do You Think Of The Northern Cape?
What'S Your View Of The Northern Cape, With Regards To It'S People It'S Culture, And It'S Three Big Towns\Cities Kimberley,Kuruman And Upington Which Have More That Half The Northern Cape 'S Population And What Do You Think Is The Province'S Future And It'S Future Role In South Africa
I live in the Northern Cape, though not in any of the "big 3" cities.
Its anything but hot & dusty now - in fact it has been raining at least twice a week for months!
It will always have a low population.
Agriculture is the driver of the economy while mining is slowly becoming less significant as the mines close down when they are "mined out". I think it could become a major contributor to renewable energy in future - wind farms and solar energy - perhaps nuclear along the coast.
Karoo villages are becoming quite popular as "getaway" destinations for city folks from particularly the Western Cape - old cottages sell for high prices to these "city refugees".
