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 system, cleaning clothes, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, many residents discover that the benefit, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably reduce and even eliminate your electrical bills
Whether you're a homeowner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can make up a big portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your utility bills and you'll still save a lot of money.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the finest ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power costs savings, the typical American homeowner settles their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against increasing energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the past 10 years, property electrical power rates have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and protect against unpredictable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a service or homeowner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise helps you better forecast and handle your expenditures.
#4 Boost your home or business value
Several research studies have discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater property worths and sell quicker 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 become more informed about solar, demand 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 component of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost changes in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is an excellent way to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A common property solar panel system will eliminate three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are very important parts of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding organisations that opt to operate properly. Services are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of consumer getting choices, producing goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Numerous property owners decide to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility 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 energy companies are notorious for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can determine what does it cost? electricity will be produced, and most notably, at what price, for a minimum of 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

Which Point I Should Concentrate On?
Steffani, there are many points, here are a few: Solar power is a renewable energy source, meaning the fuel continues to be generated, or renewed each day, or year, and does not run out. Our home has been powered by the wind and sun for 11 years now, and still is. We enjoy not having to pay an electric bill, and knowing that for us to watch TV for an hour, no coal was burned, and no additional pollution was added to the air as a result.
Solar power is spread pretty evenly over the middle third of our globe, which just happens to be where all of the people are. This gives people in Bogota equal access to energy as people in Boca Raton. Making solar panels and other devices that utilize solar power is a higher tech profession than drilling for oil, or mining for coal, and there are more jobs involved. Switching more of our grid power over to solar would mean putting more people to work, and increasing the education base of our country because the work requires certain skills. I would personally love to take all those people out of our coal mines, send them to school, and find them jobs in a factory making solar panels. Nobody would have to die in a mining accident again trying to find fuel for our hungry power plants, they could work in the safety of a factory building breathing clean air and not having to worry about another cave in. Globally, we kill hundreds of people each year in coal mine accidents, so far the only deaths in solar power have been a handful of people who have fallen off the roofs of their homes trying to install panels themselves.
Since solar power is spread over most of the globe, there would never be a need to ship, or trade it, and as a result it's pretty hard to have any kind of a fight over it. Oil and coal resources are generally piled up in a few places on earth, such as Russia, Saudi Arabia and Brazil. This gives those countries, and the richer governments that rule them more horsepower in bargaining for other resources on our planet. These are the things that wars are made of. As a result, we not only have to use a good portion of these found energy sources shipping them around, but we now have to use military resources to protect the shipments, which takes up further resources that could be used feeding people and improving our medical facilities and schools for example.
As we continue to evolve as a society, people are constantly trying to figure out what the best energy source is going forward, just as you are today. The best source will be a diverse on, some wind, solar, biomass, hydro, and even some coal, oil and nuclear should be part of the mix. You are probably not old enough to remember the Arab Oil Embargo of 1973, I am. Gas stations ran out of gas, people left their cars stranded and couldn't get to work or home, blackouts occured in many parts of our high tech country. Imagine if that happened again one day and we only imported 10% of our energy instead of 60%, it would be a minor inconvenience.
There of course is the fact that basing more of our power from renewable sources like solar would cause us to emit less pollution, yet another benefit. There are probably other reasons, but I think you get the picture. Good luck on your debate Steffanni, and take care, Rudydoo
Could Solar Power Work More Effectively If The Solar Rays Were Magnified?
If We Focused The Sun'S Energy Like A Magnifying Glass Does Into The Solar Panels, Would This Generate More Power At All?
No, it would not. If the magnifying glass is the same area as the solar collectors, then it would be the same amount of energy the solar collectors would be gathering without the magnifying glass.
In a way it would be cheaper, using cheap mirrors to focus the sun's rays onto a smaller solar collector surface area. And solar collectors are far more expensive. But as to more power? No.
Where Is Energy Come From?
"The real energy comes from the sun, which is solar (light) or heat energy. Through this, we are able to produce different kinds of energy and this allows machines and even living things move and are able to do things. ( explanation not much elaborated)
We use a lot of stored energy without really thinking where it comes from. We get food from the supermarket, petrol from the service station, and electricity through power lines. But where does the energy in these things come from in the first place? Green Plants store the energy of sunlight and chemical energy (Food), using a process called photosynthesis. Animals which eat these plants use most of the energy of their body activities and store the rest. So animals which eat plants and other animals are using stored energy that came originally from the sun. Most of our electricity comes from power stations which burn coal to produce steam. This steam is then used to turn turbo generators which produce the electricity. The petrol we use in our cars is produced by the distillation of crude oil. We use natural gas for heating. Coal, Oil, and natural gases are called fossil fuels because they were formed from plant and animal remains.
E=mc2. Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only change forms. Most of Earth's energy comes from the Sun."
How Much Energy Is Generated?
Okay, The Details I Need Are Simply This: How Much Energy Is Generated By A Fusion Reaction? Also, How Much Is Generated By A Fission Reaction? It Would Also Be Helpful If I Knew How Much Energy Is Obtained By Solar Panels, And What The Optimum Size Would Be For Absorbing Energy.
It takes considerable energy to force nuclei to fuse, even those of the lightest element, hydrogen. But the fusion of lighter nuclei, creating a heavier nucleus and a free neutron, will generally release more energy than it took to force them together — an exothermic process that can produce self-sustaining reactions.
The energy released in most nuclear reactions is much larger than that in chemical reactions, because the binding energy that holds a nucleus together is far greater than the energy that holds electrons to a nucleus. For example, the ionization energy gained by adding an electron to a hydrogen nucleus is 13.6 electron volts — less than one-millionth of the 17 MeV released in the D-T (deuterium-tritium) reaction
Waht Is A Green Home?
I Like Know What It Is But What Is It Down To The Science
a home with energy efficient appliances,
a home that uses eco-friendly materials.. such as using laminates or tile instead of real wood, or instead of carpeting (carpet is less healthy in a home and often fills landfills).. or buys carpeting that is made of recycled materials.. or uses bamboo flooring (which can be grown many times over instead of cutting down forests for wood floors) instead of wood flooring. You might use interior paints on your walls that have low off-gassing. You might have solar panels. You might have a pellet stove that burns reclaimed wood waste (woodpellets made from waste sawdust).
Waste water (grey water) from sinks/ showers can be used on the garden.
