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 utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c, cleaning clothing, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, many residents discover that the benefit, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically decrease or even remove your electric bills
Whether you're a house owner, company, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can make up a large portion of your regular monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy costs savings, the average American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the past 10 years, domestic electricity costs have increased by an average of three percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unpredictable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a service or property owner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise assists you much better forecast and manage your expenses.
#4 Boost your home or business worth
Multiple studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost changes in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable 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 remove three to 4 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are very important components of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that decide to operate responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are an effective driver of customer purchasing decisions, developing goodwill and improving business results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Numerous house owners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
Since 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 varying and undependable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can compute what does it cost? electricity will be created, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).
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
Ethanol Vs Corn Ethanol: Were We Duped? Corn'S Highest And Best Use Is In Food Production. Ethanol From...
...Grasses And Trees (Switchgrass And Mesquite) Is Much Smarter.
Why Did The U.S. Begin Its Ethanol Experiment With Corn As A Feedstock?
The short answer is that making cellulosic ethanol wasn't feasible at the time we began producing ethanol. Only recently have we worked out reasonable ways of breaking down cellulose into sugars so that it can be fermented to fuel. I think that corn ethanol is becoming obsolete, but that it has served a useful purpose. Hopefully this will clarify the topic more:
Yes, corn ethanol is very inefficient from the standpoint that you only get back about 120% of the energy you put in. Also, it would not be economically feasible without large government subsidies. However, the type of fuel used in the process is predominantly natural gas and coal for fertilizer production and electricity respectively. So, corn ethanol does help to reduce oil consumption.
More importantly, in my opinion, is that corn ethanol is a "bridge" technology that will help our economy move toward a more efficient and economically viable next-generation biofuel.
The endpoint of this technology path is a cellulosic process that produces a fuel with better properties than ethanol (e.g. butanol or a synthetic petroleum). You can think of a cellulosic process as two steps; breaking down cellulose into sugars, and fermenting sugars into fuel. Corn ethanol has helped us to become very good at the second part, and many corn ethanol plants will be able to add-on the first step once a cellulosic process has been more fully developed.
What Are Some Energy Converter Devices?
I Need This For My Science Project Due On Friday, Please Help
Gee, Internal combustion engine (chemical to mechanical), Diesel Engine (chemical to mechanical), water wheel (water momentum to mechanical), wind turbine (air momentum to mechanical/electrical), solar photovoltaic array (photons to electricity), nuclear power plant (mass to electricity), thermopile (thermal to electricity), battery (chemical to electrical). The list is endless and I only listed things that generally are used to "create" energy, the question would also include things that consume energy!
Geothermal Energy Vs All Other Forms Of Energy (Solar, Wind, Ect)?
What Makes Geothermal Advantages Better Than Other Sources Of Energy?
geothermal is pretty much permanent.
once you set it up, the heat is constantly available.
and you don't worry about clouds over your solar panels, or night time, or the wind not blowing, or an oil spill, or drought reducing hydro availability, or what to do with the radioactive waste.
of course, what's rarely mentioned are things like heavy metals in the steam, that pollutes streams if you just dump it.
or that the "Yellowstone of the West" was all plugged up, and fenced off, so you can no longer go see the geysers that used to be there.
considering that, maybe we should fence Yellowstone NP off, plug up all the geysers, and make lots of "clean" electricity.
wouldn't that be a good idea?
that's what they did in Geyserville Calif.
How Big Of A Solar Power Setup Do I Need To Be Able To Run A Laptop & A 60W Low Energy Light Bulb Constantly?
I'M Looking For Details Such As How Many Solar Panels, Batteries, Etc. That I Would Need In Order To Run My Laptop And An Energy Efficient Light When I Am Up North Staying In A Cabin That Has No Hydro Access. I Want To Be Able To Have Power (Not Including The Laptop'S Battery) To Plug It In And Run It All Day And Night And Have A Lightbulb (Maximum 60W) Running As Well, Possibly In The Daytime If It'S Cloudy Outside, So To Be Safe I Want Enough Power In The System To Be Able To Use Those Two Things Whenever I Want, And For As Long As I Want Without Worrying About The Power Running Out.
If your laptop power consumption is considered as 50W and T5 Tube Light of 28W are considered to be used day and night(which means 24hrs),you require appx. 2000Wh Energy and considering 3days autonomy(to even work for 3 non-sun shine days),you may require as 100% solar power generating system which may cost around Rs.3Lakhs and if 50% solar and 50% hybrid system can cost Rs.2.5Lkahs(hybrid system is recommended provided average wind speed in your location is more than 2.5metres per second)
If you can check exact power consumption of your laptop(or let know the model number and make) and also let know your interest to use energy efficient LED Lighting,so as power consumtion can be brought down and hence solar/solar&wind sysetm cost....please feel free to contact me on +91 92464 75056 or [email protected]
What Will Be The Next Big Fuel Source?
We'Re Using Fossil Fuels Right Now, But What Will Be The Next Standard In Fuel And Why? Try To Consider Current Day Limitations With Ethonol, Atomic, Water, But Im Not Limiting You Guys Here.
To the person that stated that Hydrogen is simply a store of energy "Like batteries", you must consider that most fuel sources are simply a store of energy.
Nuclear power is simply releasing the stored energy that had held together an atomic nucleus. Fossil Fuels are simply stores of energy generated by the interactions between intense pressures and organic material (mostly plant matter). Solar energy is, in essence, the same as nuclear power in this way: the sun undergoes fusion, which is again a release of energy that had held together atomic nuclei. Wind is caused by an uneven heating of the atmosphere by the sun, which is again caused by fusion. All of these are extensively used in current society, even though they are just "stores of energy, like batteries".
