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 use the sun to power daily life: running your a/c unit, cleaning clothing, watching TV, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are significant, numerous home owners discover that the convenience, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Leading Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly decrease and even remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a house owner, company, or nonprofit, electricity expenses can comprise a big portion of your month-to-month costs. With a solar panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your energy bills and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs savings, the typical American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical power prices have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure versus unforeseeable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a service or homeowner with fluctuating capital, going solar also helps you better forecast and handle your expenses.
#4 Increase your home or business value
Numerous studies have discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher home values and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, need for properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential element of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price variations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, 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 tasks in the country. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a terrific method to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will eliminate 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are very important elements of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that decide to run properly. Organisations are finding that "green" credentials are an effective driver of consumer getting choices, creating goodwill and improving organisation results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Many homeowners select to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility business are notorious for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can compute what does it cost? electricity will be produced, and most importantly, at what rate, for at least 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

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 Is The Energy Transformation In A Solar Cell, Whistle And Weight Lifting?
How Do Write Your Ans? Example: Electrical Energy To Kinetic Energy
Solar energy to electrical energy, potential to kinetic (if blowing it at the time) If lifting the weight at the time mechanical to potential
First is easy salor to electrical, second the potential energy stored in our lungs after we inhale is converted to kinetic as we blow the whistle spinning the little vanes inside, Mechanical energy of lifting the weight to a higher level adding potential energy to the weight.
3. Where Does The Wind Get It’S Energy From?
Btw This Is 4 Wind Energy!
Please Help Me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The sun is the primary reason. Other reasons are: the rotation of the Earth (cool side versus the hot side) geography/oceans. Everything, all the energy in our solar system comes from generally, the sun.
Bart Uses Electricity To Run, But What Sources Are Being Transformed In To Electricity?
I Know That Bart Uses Electricity To Run The Trains. But What Sources Make The Electricity Being Used By Bart, Fossil Fuel, Natural Gas Or What Sources?
And How Much You Pay For The Parking In The Bart Parking Lots? Is It Still Cheaper Than Driving A Car?
Despite the pie-in-the-sky dreaming of environmentalists, most marginal electrical demand is going to be supplied by fossil fuel plants. True everywhere in the US.
As for the efficiency of public transportation, that's more religion than science. The only place I've seen an attempt to compare the fuel efficiency of public transportation vs alternatives is in this report, on the planned 2nd Avenue Subway in NYC:
If you read the report, you might be surprised to discover that the subway would consume more fuel than the traffic it replaces. But read the footnotes, the real numbers are much worse. The conversion factors used are 133,000 BTU per gallon of gasoline and 3,413 BTU's per KWHR of electricity. This is an error, which makes the subway look much better than it really is. Here's the problem. Gasoline is burned directly in an automobile, at an efficiency of under 25%. But while electricity is consumed at an efficiency of 80% for the electric subway motor, it takes a considerably greater amount of energy to create the power consumed. In order to deliver 1 KWHR to the power outlet, a source must be consuming more than 1 KWHR worth of fuel. I'll explain:
Since there is next to no opportunity for wind or solar power in NYC, and no nuclear plant has been build there in 50 years, marginal demand must be met by fossil fuel plants. A steam turbine plant fueled by natural gas or oil is perhaps 35% efficient, but let's be generous and say 50%. The distribution network...power lines and transformers...might operate at 95% efficiency. Finally, subways in NY run on DC power, so what comes off the line must be rectified, at perhaps 75% efficiency. If you start with enough natural gas to produce 1000KWHRS, you end up with 1000x.50x.95x.75 KWHRS, only 356 KWHRS is actually delivered to the electric motor. If the electric motor is 80% efficient, 284 KWHRS actually produces useful work. If 1000 KWHRS of gasoline is burned in a 25% efficient car, 250 KWHRS actually produce useful work.
While the motors end up being of comparable efficiency, the subway system turns has a much lower load factor than the car. That is, if two people ride in a car, it's about half loaded. That's the way it's going to be on average. A subway car must roll up and down the track day and night, in order to provide a reasonably attractive alternative. But it's only running at it's full rated load factor for about four hours a day. The rest of the time, energy is expended pushing mostly empty cars up and down the track. All in all, it would be more fuel efficient to drive a Hummer than take a subway.
How Can I Boil Water Using Solar Energy Using Only A Pan And Metals?
Do you specifically want boiling water? Or do you want to cook with the solar radiation?
You can cook with a solar oven. Just google the words "solar oven" and you will come up with lots of plans on how to make them, and places that sell them.
I think solar ovens can get hot enough to boil water, but I'm not sure. They take about four hours to cook a meal, at peak sunlight time...a meal can be a whole chicken and vegtables.

Can Solar Energy Power The Entire House?
Our Home Produce 350-400Kw Per Months. How Many Solar Panel And Battery Do We Need To Produce Enough Energy From The House?
Absolutely. If your home uses up to 400kwh a month, the first step is to try to reduce that even more. For every $1 you spend on conservation, that's $4 less in solar expense. But let's say you've already conserved as much as you can...
Depending where you are, you would need about 4000 watts of solar electric panels. Since you are currently connected to the electric company, there's no need for batteries. Just make as much as you can during the day, and sell any extra power back to the grid. Then at night and on cloudy days, you just buy it back from the grid, same as you do now. With net metering, the electric company keeps track of how much you sold and how much you bought, and you can end up zeroing out the bill (or at least having it down to just delivery charges, fees, and tax). Different electric companies have different rules, so actual mileage may vary. Here's an example of a 3000W grid tied system, you'd just need another 1000 watts. http://www.altestore.com/store/Kits-Pack...
You can see for yourself on the grid-tied calculator at http://www.altestore.com/store/calculato...
If you do want to cut your connection to the electric company and store your power to use at night, you'd go to the off-grid calculator to also figure out the battery bank size. http://www.altestore.com/store/calculato... With 2 days battery backup, you'd need about a 1500 amp hour 48V battery bank.
Also take a look at solar water heating, it's a very cost effective way to get your energy usage down. http://www.altestore.com/store/Kits-Package-Deals/Climate-freezes-Closed-Loop-Systems/Closed-Loop-Systems-for-1-4-People/Closed-Loop-PV-Powered-w-Tank/Indirect-PV-w-80-Gal-Tank-64-SqFt-Collectors/p8142/
