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 home owners to use the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c unit, washing clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, lots of home owners find that the convenience, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically lower or perhaps remove your electric costs
Whether you're a homeowner, business, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can comprise a big part of your regular monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate complimentary 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 minimize your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of money.
#2 Earn a fantastic return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power costs savings, the typical American homeowner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical energy prices have gone up by approximately 3 percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and protect against unforeseeable increases in electrical power costs. If you're an organisation or property owner with ever-changing capital, going solar also assists you better forecast and manage your costs.
#4 Boost your residential or commercial property value
Several studies have actually found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively 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, demand for residential or commercial properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key component of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent way to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A normal residential solar panel system will remove 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are crucial elements of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that pick to run responsibly. Organisations are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of consumer buying choices, producing goodwill and enhancing service results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Numerous house owners pick to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The utility companies are notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electricity costs. There is plainly an upward trend.
With solar panels and simple math, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical power will be produced, and most notably, at what price, 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
- 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
Difference Between Nuclear And Solar Energy?
I Really Don'T Know Too Much About This Stuff Much But I Know That Solar Energy Has To Do With The Sun But What About Nuclear Energy?
Solar energy is a clean non polluting and renewable source of energy. It harnesses the suns energy using solar panels. Solar has many advantages over nuclear, safer, cleaner, cheaper, easy installation, can be mobile (ie. solar cars.)
Nuclear energy harnesses the energy from the decay of radioactive materials, usually uranium 235. Nuclear energy produces radioactive waste and is a non-renewable source of energy. There are concerns about safety and waste management.
How Does Biomass Affect The Environment?
Biomass in the production of power is the use of renewable organic matter, generally of the plant variety.
The burning of biomass produces carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and oxides of nitrogen and in some cases oxides of sulfer. The fly ash is also a problem in its disposition.
It is not good for the environment. At our rate, in fossil fuel alone should show that it is not a good Idea to use biomass as energy.
Better uses for the environment would be hydro-electricity, geothermal power, solar power, and wind power. There are so many ready made sources of energy we can use instead of burning more toxic "things."
Why Is Wind Energy A Controversial Topic?
Its A Geography Case Study
Hey Steven, you pose a good question. It's interesting that wind power was never controversial in the 30's. For decades, farmers built and installed wind turbines and towers, and it never bothered anyone, in fact, the neighbors frequently helped. Since rural electrification, many of those old windmills have been rusting away. A few have been updated and painted up as a cultural icon, and even fewer actually still function. Since then, technology has made them more efficient, quieter, larger, and more reliable. Now enter the 80's and 90's, and suddenly everyone has an axe to grind about this horrible technology.
I can give you my personal view, which is they are controversial because they have a liberal, anti-oil, environmental stigma attached to them. You're correct that they are simply a geographical item, but politics has taken over for no reason. I like windmills, we have one in the field behind our home that actually produces electricity. Together with our solar array, they run the entire property about 90% of the time. I don't hug trees or throw rocks at SUV's, but that does not free me from the responsibility to try to clean up after myself. After studying the science of energy, it simply does not make sense to me to burn coal to run my air conditioner. The one thing that amazes me about the entire renewable energy field is the amount of misinformation there is. Take your other answers here, like, "Huge maintenance costs, they will never pay for themselves," and so on. Ours has paid for itself several times over the last 11 years. It even pays a premium on the days that our grid power is out, but our home still has electricity, hard to put a price tag on that. As far as maintenance, I have done nothing more than inspect the blades and tower annually, and touch up the paint on ours.
If the technology would never pay for itself, all the power companies would not be racing to get them up in such a hurry. Those websites that are always quoted about, "The failure of wind in Europe," and others are articles posted by groups that stand to lose something to alternative energies. Look at all the, "Clean Coal," ads lately. In the US, 52% of our grid electricity already comes from coal, that is nothing short of a monopoly, so why do they need to advertise? They can see the future, and to them it isn't pretty. This is why wind has become controversial Steven, because it works. It worked fine in the 30's and 40's, and it works even better today.
What Are The Financial, Political, And Technological Limitations Of Solar Energy?
Basically... How Much Future Does This Energy Source Have?
Well it depends from solar energy
but right now we should off have electric cars right now but the man from the gas industry killed the man so he could have more money on oil well shame on them for wanting more money the man should of invested more so he could make more money and oil should be kept as a backup fuel for other stuff
But right now scientists are creating solar cars in australia and they have Solar panels/Turbines and garden Accessories today so youll just find out
Explain Why We Need Solar Energy?
I Need Help.
Why the earth needs solar energy?
why the electricity grid needs solar energy?
why our bodies need solar energy?
maybe you want to be a bit more specific.
the earth needs it because w/o it, it would be colder than Pluto -- like -300 degrees.
