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
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
Can Anyone Explain What Solar Energy Is, And It'S Use?
Solar energy, radiant light and heat from the sun, has been harnessed by humans since ancient times using a range of ever-evolving technologies. Solar radiation, along with secondary solar-powered resources such as wind and wave power, hydroelectricity and biomass, account for most of the available renewable energy on earth. Only a minuscule fraction of the available solar energy is used.
Solar powered electrical generation relies on heat engines and photovoltaics. Solar energy's uses are limited only by human ingenuity. A partial list of solar applications includes space heating and cooling through solar architecture, potable water via distillation and disinfection, daylighting, solar hot water, solar cooking, and high temperature process heat for industrial purposes.To harvest the solar energy, the most common way is to use solar panels.
Solar technologies are broadly characterized as either passive solar or active solar depending on the way they capture, convert and distribute solar energy. Active solar techniques include the use of photovoltaic panels and solar thermal collectors to harness the energy. Passive solar techniques include orienting a building to the Sun, selecting materials with favorable thermal mass or light dispersing properties, and designing spaces that naturally circulate air.
What Are The Advantages And Disadvantages Of A Cooperation With Africa Considering Solar Energy?
Like Installing Solar Panels In The Sahara Desert
That would be a good idea but the problem that there could face would be the money. Africa would face hard time if they decide to spend there money on solar panel rather than food for the dying children.
The advantages would be probley save more money .
Which Is Better For Large Scale Electrical Production; Solar Thermal Applications Or Pv Applications? Reguarding Costs And Amount Of Space Required?
There is some debate about this question. Photovoltaics have a long way to go (although they are improving). Check out these links to someone proposing using a Stirling engine. Maybe that's what you mean by solar thermal.
Why Solar Energy Still Not Widely Used ? Any Restrictions Or Drawbacks Using Solar Energy ?
It costs more in two ways:
1) it costs more per kilowatt-hour to produce, on average, given the capital cost and
2) the energy is effectively paid for with capital cost rather than gradually over years like normal utility power. You can take out loans, but then you get hit with interest.
Someday it will be cheaper than grid power, but probably ten years or more.
(Let me also add that some of hte big oil companies own solar companies, e.g. BP Solar. They're slowly giving up on oil and determined to monopolize the next energy source...)
Please!Tell Me Why Solar Energy Is Considered To Be The Poor-Man'S Choice In Electricity In Morocco?
I Had A Conversation With Dh A Long Time Ago About This. Why Is Solar Energy The Poor-Man'S Choice? I Know Solar Panels Can Be Very Expensive Here--How About There? Do They Have Subsidies To Help Ppl Get Them? It Seems So Sad To See A Country With So Much Sun Not Take Advantage Of It More. Do Any Government Offices Use It? I Guess Not Since It Seems To Be Looked Down Upon..... Anybody Have An Solutions? Lol --It'S Homework Time! ;)
I do not believe it is the poor-man's choice. I think it would be everyone's choice here if they could afford to purchase it.
It is becoming more and more common here (far more common than in the U.S. per capita in my opinion-not an official poll :-p ). Like Nomadic most people I encounter who don't have it want it. The wealthiest neighborhood in Agadir not a villa is without it. We live right in the center of Agadir in a building that is a bit tall by Agadir standard and I can see many of them on houses in the surrounding neighborhoods.
The units that are most common and can be used on a house or villa up to 350 square meters costs about $1000 with installation. I think that is a pretty good price compared to USA (correct me if I am wrong).
We don't use one for our apartment because it is a co-op building and our association doesn't want the roof looking like the typical Moroccan roof top full off dozens of dishes (there are 2 established for everyones use) or solar units. Personally, my husband and I would completely support it but that is another story.
We are not the poor man nor the rich man but we are having it installed on the beach house, (there isn't electricity ran out there yet, lol) but we would of done it even if there was electricity run out there.
I have never noticed any government offices with it but I never really gave it any attention...I'll have to do that.
Government subsidies!?!?! Wouldn't that be nice.....oh a little dream world :-p It would be so great if everyone could use solar energy, I think here the poorest people are likely concerned with getting other things before they would purchase a solar power unit.
