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 property owner to use the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothing, viewing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are significant, numerous residents discover that the convenience, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically minimize or even eliminate your electric costs
Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can make up a big portion of your monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your utility bills and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity expense cost 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 Protect against increasing energy expenses
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the past ten years, property electrical power prices have increased by an average of 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and secure versus unpredictable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a business or house owner with fluctuating money flow, going solar also helps you much better forecast and handle your costs.
#4 Boost your home or business value
Numerous research studies have actually found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater home values and sell more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, need for homes equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential element of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate changes in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local 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 development is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A common residential photovoltaic panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are very important components of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that opt to operate properly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of customer buying choices, creating goodwill and enhancing business results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Numerous house owners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The utility companies are well-known for their changing and undependable electrical power prices. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can compute what does it cost? electrical power will be generated, and most significantly, 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

Hey Asf, how about this: Are there benefits to solar power other than producing energy? Consider this for part of your answer:
: If you invest properly in alternative power today and take advantage of any grants and tax incentives, even if your electric rates do not go up as they are forecast too, you will get your money back over time, well within the lifetime of the equipment, and sooner if there is a rate increase in the future. There are also enviromental benefits. At one time there was an argument that a solar panel will never produce as much power as was used to manufacture it. First of all, this is not correct. The, "Embodied Energy," in a solar panel is earned back in 2 - 6 years, depending on the type panel, where the raw materials were shipped from, and how it was installed and used in the end. Most panels are warrantied to last at least 25 years, and most last much longer than that. But the argument is not important anyway. We have been living with electricity for over a century now, so it isn't going away anytime soon. The question is, "What is the best way to produce it?" If you build a panel, and put it along side a similar sized natural gas fired turbine generator for example, which earns back its embodied energy sooner? The answer is the gas turbine never does, because once you build it, ship it and install it, you now have to feed it natural gas for the rest of its life, so it keeps on digging itself a deeper and deeper embodied energy hole that it can never crawl out of. At least the panel has a chance to get even environmentally.
There are also mechanical and political benefits. We all know after the oil embargo of 1973, and the gulf war what it means for our country to rely on foreign oil. Wouldn't it be nice if we only shipped in 20% of our energy instead of 60% the next time something like that happens? Our home has been powered by the wind and sun for years now, but we still remain connected to the electric grid. Last year alone there were two power failures in our county that lasted about a half day each. In both cases, we were not aware of them because our solar array kept on feeding the house. It's difficult to put a price tag on something like that. Did you know that there are over 100,000 homes and businesses in the United States alone that use some level of solar power to operate their electrical devices, that's good news.
Beyond the mechanical, political and environmental benefits however, lies a less obvious benefit, the social benefit. Right now we pump oil out of the ground, and mine for coal. The process of getting those materials to market involves shipping, military escorts and other activities that use up a good portion of that energy as well as putting lives at risk. Jobs in alternative power are higher tech than jobs in coal mining, oil drilling and shipping, and there are more of them. Using more alternative power would require us to put more people to work, and increase our education base because the work involved requires certain skills. I would personally like to take all those people out of the coal mines, send them to school and put them to work building solar panels. Nobody would have to die again in one of those dark holes in the ground trying to find food for our hungry power plants. They could work on a factory floor where they would not be exposed to coal dust, radon and other toxins and dangers. Most of our solar and wind resources are spread pretty evenly over the middle half of our globe, which happens to be where all the people are, so everyone has access. This puts people in Bogota on a more equal footing with people in Boca Raton by giving them access to electricity, heat and clean water, and the education to use the solar, wind and biomass resources that provide those things. Oil, coal and natural gas is generally piled up in a few places, such as Russia and the Middle East. This gives those countries and the richer governments that rule them more horse power in bargaining for the other resources of our planet. These are the things that wars are made of.
There are other benefits, see if you can come up with one or two yourself doing your own research. Good luck on the paper Asf, Rudydoo
Whats The Abbsulote Best Home (Roof) Solar Panels For Power Produced To Price?
Like The Kind U Put On Your Roof Looking For A Good Balance Between Cost And Power Produced While Still Making It Worth The Time And Effort Were Defiantly Getting Some But Wanted To Know The Best Preferably By Experiance Of The Answerer. Thanks In Advance
Experience of an answerer is not likely to tell you the "best" solar panels. All they will be able to do is give you their overall satisfaction with there system. Their satisfaction will depend on a lot of things, like the opinion of their contractor, the inverter equipment, the location with respect to angle from the sun and presence of shading influences, and their original expectations.
Probably competitively priced panels are very similar in quality. One measure that may be of value would be the watts per sq ft of panel area.
Do a lot of studying, including searching for solar panels in the upper right corner of this page.

What Are Some Points I Can Cover For A 10 Page Essay On &Quot;Is Global Warming Man-Made?&Quot;?
I Have About 3 Weeks To Finish My 10 Page Argumentative Essay. I Am Looking For Points Or Views I Can Argue For Both Sides If Global Warming Is Really Man Made? I Will Appreciate Any Help.
Global warming is the increase in the average temperature of the Earth's near-surface air and oceans since the mid-20th century and its projected continuation. Global surface temperature increased 0.74 ± 0.18 °C (1.33 ± 0.32 °F) during the last century.[A] The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) concludes that most of the observed temperature increase since the middle of the 20th century was caused by increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases resulting from human activity such as fossil fuel burning and deforestation. The IPCC also concludes that variations in natural phenomena such as solar radiation and volcanoes produced most of the warming from pre-industrial times to 1950 and had a small cooling effect afterward. These basic conclusions have been endorsed by more than 40 scientific societies and academies of science,[B] including all of the national academies of science of the major industrialized countries.
Climate model projections summarized in the latest IPCC report indicate that the global surface temperature will probably rise a further 1.1 to 6.4 °C (2.0 to 11.5 °F) during the twenty-first century. The uncertainty in this estimate arises from the use of models with differing sensitivity to greenhouse gas concentrations and the use of differing estimates of future greenhouse gas emissions. Some other uncertainties include how warming and related changes will vary from region to region around the globe. Most studies focus on the period up to the year 2100. However, warming is expected to continue beyond 2100 even if emissions stop, because of the large heat capacity of the oceans and the long lifetime of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
An increase in global temperature will cause sea levels to rise and will change the amount and pattern of precipitation, probably including expansion of subtropical deserts. The continuing retreat of glaciers, permafrost and sea ice is expected, with warming being strongest in the Arctic. Other likely effects include increases in the intensity of extreme weather events, species extinctions, and changes in agricultural yields.
Political and public debate continues regarding climate change, and what actions (if any) to take in response. The available options are mitigation to reduce further emissions; adaptation to reduce the damage caused by warming; and, more speculatively, geoengineering to reverse global warming. Most national governments have signed and ratified the Kyoto Protocol aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
