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 daily life: running your air conditioner, cleaning clothing, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are significant, numerous property owners find that the convenience, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably reduce and even remove your electrical expenses
Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can comprise a big part of your monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll produce 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 decrease your utility expenses and you'll still save a lot of money.
#2 Earn a great return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy expense savings, the average American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, property electrical power rates have actually gone up by approximately three percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and secure versus unpredictable increases in electricity costs. If you're a service or homeowner with fluctuating cash circulation, going solar also assists you better forecast and manage your expenses.
#4 Boost your home worth
Multiple research studies have found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher home values and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties geared up with solar 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 attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate variations in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent method to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A typical residential photovoltaic panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are necessary components of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding services that pick to run properly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of consumer acquiring decisions, 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 loan down.
Lots of property owners decide to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- 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 Financial investment
The energy business are notorious for their fluctuating and unreliable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can compute just how much electrical power will be generated, and most importantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).
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

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
What Do You Think About The Future Transportation?
Electric Cars, Solar Energy Powered Cars, Flying Vehicles, Robot Controlled...What Do You Think?
Everything you mentioned exists today: electric cars, solar cars, flying cars, RC vehicles... From this we might say that the "future" is here. But these things are not everywhere. They are not popular. In an age of hype and the latest I phone we forget that the general trend is for technology to catch on slowly. It took over 30 years for the cell phone to move from a "brick" to something that could fit in a pocket.
Sometimes what is "popular" is the old technology. A "tipping point" must be reached when the technology becomes acceptable by most people. And so it is the human part of the equation that is the most limiting factor for the "future of transportation."
What Provinces In Canada Use Solar Energy?
Just Wondering, As I'Ve Only Gotten Ontario, But I'M Sure There Are More Provinces In Canada Using It.
All provinces use solar energy. In fact, every country, state, county, and province in the world uses solar energy. Anywhere where there are plants or animals uses solar energy. Plants use solar energy to grow. Animals use solar energy to see.
Why We Choose Solar Energy Compared To Other Resources Of Renewable Energy?
I Need Help For My Summer Project Please (:
Most sources of energy renewable or not are from solar energy. Biomass is solar energy captured via photosynthesis and stored chemically. Wind power is from temperature gradient in the atmosphere due to heating from the sun. Hydro is from the evaporation of sea water and the subsequent precipitation at higher elevations. Fossil fuels are the solar energy captured by photosynthesis millions of years ago and stored chemically. All of these indirect methods of harvesting solar energy are very inefficient, photosynthesis has a maximum theoretical efficiency of 6.6%, then take into account that only a small portion of a plant is used for first generation biofuels and you can see that it's only a fraction of a fraction of 1% in efficiency. Contrast that to the current photovoltaic record of 42.8% efficiency
There are a few sources of "renewable" energy that aren't from solar energy. Nuclear energy is from the decay of radioactive elements left over from the formation of the Earth. Geothermal is heat from the molten core leftover from the formation of the Earth or from the melting of the tectonic plates as they move against each other. Tidal is from the kinetic energy of Earth's rotation and that of the moon's orbit. But these tap energy reserves much smaller than that of the sun.
You'll note that none of these energy sources are perpetual so "renewable" is a bit of a misnomer. But with the exception of fossil fuel, these are the sources of energy that tap energy reserves many times greater than can be conceivably consumed by us during a reasonable expectation for the life of our civilizations. At one time fossil fuels also appeared inexhaustible compared to our energy needs but then our energy needs increased.
If you look at how much energy is available, solar energy is available in quantities of up to 90 PW, that's peta-watts, at Earth's surface. Our entire global energy consumption peaks at 15 TW so solar energy is well in excess of our energy needs while indirect solar such as biomass, wind and hydro can in way theoretically meet our energy needs by themselves. Enough solar energy falls upon the Earth in 40 minutes to provide for the entire world's energy needs for an entire year.
Why Is Tidal Energy Needed?
The world needs energy to drive industry, agriculture, transport and to heat and light our homes. Sustainable, non-polluting energy sources are desperately needed, in view of the increasing demand. Tidal energy along with solar and wind is non-polluting and sustainable.
What Are The Advantages And Possible Disadvantages Of Using Solar Energy?
Great way to save power and preserve reasources. But it may be a bit unsitely and it may not be the most efficent use of your money (I would assume solar producing sources would be hard to come by money wise because they are not mass produced as frequently, and most poeple just assume not using them will work). If your going to go for all solar power, then get power saving appliances, that way you help the solar panels that help you.
