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 daily life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothing, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, numerous home owners find that the benefit, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably lower or even eliminate your electrical expenses
Whether you're a property owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can comprise a big portion of your monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your energy bills and you'll still save a lot of loan.
#2 Make a great return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power bill savings, the typical American house owner settles 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 photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, domestic electricity rates have actually increased by approximately 3 percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and protect against unforeseeable increases in electricity costs. If you're a business or homeowner with changing cash flow, going solar likewise assists you better projection and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home value
Numerous studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher property values and offer quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, need for 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 crucial part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate variations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is an excellent way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A typical property 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 dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are crucial components of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding services that opt to run properly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of consumer purchasing choices, developing 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 property owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Many property owners opt to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility companies are infamous for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and basic math, we can determine just how much electrical energy will be generated, and most notably, at exactly what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 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.
- 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
Please Help!!!What Kind Of Impact Does Energy Production Have On The Environment ?
What Kind Of Impact Does Energy Production Have On The Environment ??
Energy production will result in carbon emission. Therefore as output (GDP) of an economy increase, consumption of energy increase. Therefore energy production will increase to meet the demand. As a result there will be an increase in carbon emission.
However, it all depends on how the energy is produced. If the energy is derived from wind power or solar energy. There will be almost no negative impact on the environment.
In a nutshell: If energy production is generated from renewable sources like wind and solar energy, there is usually zero negative impact on the environment. While on the other hand, if the power is generated from sources such as coal, there will be a lot of carbon emission (which will result in global warming) and potentially land or river pollution if the waste from the energy production is not dispose properly.
Hope this helps.
Why Solar Energy Is Considered As Future Energy Source?
To answer this questions lets first look at the sources of energy we currently have in place:
1) Thermal (Coal, gas, all that you can burn and blast)
2) Hydro (from Dams - water falls and energy is produced)
6) Small Hydro
7) Solar Energy
Thrmal, Hydro are limited,
Nuclear may be considered dangerous,
Wind - is good - but may affect environment/nature
Biomass and small hydro are limited
Solar is abundant, available, safe, easy to use and has potential to become cheaper!
So, that is the best possible future alternative source of energy
Not best possible current source of energy though as efficiency is very less 16% at best
What Are Some Advantages And Disadvantages Of Bio-Energy?
Please Answer With As Many As You Can With As Much Detail As Possible
Bio energy means energy involving some kind of life (so wind/solar/hydro – power are not included)
i'm sure you know that but just to be clear.
there are many different types (and i don't know them all by any stretch of the imagination)
Anaerobic digestion: it runs from any biological matter but mostly from animal/human waste (toilet waste i mean) and also from landfill drainage so it doesn't take much energy to extract like oil or nuclear. It takes allot to build a plant though and it's much less efficient in terms of making up the energy used to build it. However, it is sustainable and has many places of usage particularly near large farms.
then there is combustion of wood or other bio matter which is preferable in terms of sustainable resource but not in terms of efficiency of combustion or distribution. however wood is more effectively used as fuel locally than oil which has to be transported great distances.
with natural gas there is are many positive aspects such as the conversion of methane (a very powerful greenhouse gas) carbon dioxide and water (CO2 still a green house gas but actually much less potent). it is less efficient as, say LPG, however again when harnessed locally it makes up for some of the lack in efficiency. That is to say because the LPG must be accessed, processed and transported from one of relatively very few places in the world.
in other words with my 3 examples, and i'm certain this applies to other forms of bio energy (sorry i don't know that much about any others), it is not so much the efficiency of the fuel that is important but partly the sustainability but also the fact that biological matter is all across the planet but the alternatives are not and they take a great deal of unsustainable energy to access and transport. a new attitude towards energy and it's distribution and implementation would make (in my opinion) bio energy at least a contribution to global energy.

Why Do People Claim Electric Cars Are &Quot;Coal Powered&Quot;?
I Have Encountered Many People That Believe Electric Cars Are Really Coal Powered Cars, And That They'Re Not Much Better Than Conventional Gas Cars. Well They'Re Wrong, Because It Takes A Massive Amount Of Electricity (Mostly Coal) To Refine Gasoline, Diesel To Power The Tanker Transporting That Gasoline, And On Top Of That Pollution Coming From The Exhaust Of The Car. Electric Cars Do Not Have To Be Charged With Electricity Generated From Coal, And Have No Emission. Have You Ever Heard Of Solar, Wind, Nuclear, Geothermal, And Hydroelectric Energy? It Is Feasible To Charge Electric Cars By These Alternate Energies. I Know Of Some People Who Charge Their Electric Cars At Home By Solar Panels, The Coal Argument Is Invalid.
The claim is based on the fact that owners charge their car off the general power grid. In West Virginia, that general grid is 99% coal. In the midwest, it is >75%. Almost nowhere in the USA is it less than 50%. So since most of the electricity comes from coal, electric cars run off coal. In the states with high coal, the electric car is actually more polluting than a regular gasoline car. You could if you had an electric car, buy solar or wind energy from the grid. You will pay a 25-50% premium in cost, so nobody does it. It is one of the "lies" when selling electric cars. If users were forced to use solar/wind, you could not sell electric cars. If they were priced without government help, you also could not sell them.
