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 utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning system, cleaning clothing, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are substantial, numerous homeowners find that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably decrease and even eliminate your electrical expenses
Whether you're a house owner, business, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can make up a big part of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your utility expenses and you'll still save a lot of money.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the finest ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy bill cost savings, the average American homeowner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, property electricity prices have actually gone up by approximately three percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're an organisation or house owner with fluctuating cash flow, going solar also helps you much better forecast and manage your costs.
#4 Boost your home value
Numerous studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and sell more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, need for homes equipped 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 part of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total 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 tend 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 fantastic method to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A common residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to four heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are essential parts of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that opt to run properly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of customer purchasing decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property 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" financing options. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy 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 companies are well-known for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can compute just how much electricity will be generated, and most notably, at exactly what cost, for at least the next Twenty 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
What Do You Feel Is The Most Energy Efficient Way To Heat Your Home These Days?
May Be Building A Home Soon. Live In The Northern Part Of The U.S. What Is The Most Energy Efficient System To Heat Your Home These Days That Is Not Outrageously Expensive? Considering Corn~Wood Pellet Stove, Gas Forced Air Furnace. But Would Like To Investigate More Ideas. What Ideas Would You Suggest?
If you have ever been in a greenhouse in the winter time it can be surprisingly warm. The Solar Window heater uses the same basic idea; all you need is south facing window that gets direct sun-light. Unfortunately this is only good for the day time. http://solarwindowheaters.com/shop/. Also check out www.homepower.com for other energy savings for the home.
The Bush Admin Ignores Global Warming So As To Allow Continued Profittaking At The Expense Of Our Earth/Home?
The Kyoto Protocols Would Have Forced Change On The American Oil/Energy Production System...They Contended Unfair Change. But Was It? Can We Trust Anything The Bushies Have Done Since Seizing Power? Will We So Regret The Bush Administration Someday Because Of The Delay Caused By Their Inaction? As We Slowly Suffocate In A Primevel Atmosphere
Hmmm, I sure don't remember the Clinton administration submitting the Koyoto Treaty to be ratified, during his last three years in office .
And if i do remember, the US Senate passed a resolution by a vote of 98-0 saying that they would not ratify the Koyoto treaty back in 1999. Not unless China and India were added to it.
CO2 emissions growth in the US was far ahead of that of the EU-15 from 1990-2000, but from 2000-2004, America's rate of growth in CO2 emissions was eight percentage points lower than from 1995-2000, while the EU-15 saw an increase of 2.3 points.
From 2000-2004, the United States' CO2 emissions growth rate was 2.1%, compared to the EU-15's 4.5%. That happened while the US economy was expanding 38% faster than the economies of the EU-15 while experiencing population growth at twice the rate of the EU-15.
This naturally has led to questions and debate about the merits of a mandatory emissions cap approach (as currently adopted under Kyoto) versus a voluntary approach to emissions reduction (as adopted by the United States.
Of course, since the single largest source of man made green house gas's is Fossil fuel power Plants 39%.
We should be building alot more nuclear power plants.
But for some reason, those who speak up most about global warming, also speak up most about blocking the single biggest thing we could do to decrease it, by shutting down the fossil fuel power plants and replacing them with nuclear power plants.
How To Get Light By Using Solar Energy?
I'm not clear on what you mean. Light is already a big part of what comes from the sun.
Are you asking how to store solar energy for later use, such as generating light at night? If there is no other choice, people charge batteries with solar panels. But if there is grid electricity already going to a site, it's generally cheaper to use the grid at night, and solar in the day, or even sell electricity to the power company during the day. Batteries are a lot of trouble.
Is An Alternative Of Fuel Can Help Stopping Global Warming?
While Watching Discovery Channel I Thought This Question, And I Was Just Wondering About It.
People Are Thinking Of Electric Vehicles, Which Can Be An Alternative Of Fossil Fuel And Reduce Pollution, Which Can Help Reduce Global Warming. However, If You Think Deeply From Where This Electricity Comes From? Almost From Coals Or Radioactivity! This Is A Basic Source Of Pollution. By Looking At This, What Do You Think Is This A Real Alternative Of Our Problems? Please Reply To This Question. I Will Be Glad To See The Replies From All Of The Wonderful Users And Thankful To Yahoo! Answers.
Electric cars produce much less pollution than gas cars, because of the greater efficiency of electric drive (electric motor, 95% efficient, versus gas engine, 25% efficient.) Delivering energy by wire to electric cars (95% efficient) is also much, much more efficient than trucking gas to thousands of service stations. Fuel is also burned far more efficiently in large power stations (up to 85% efficient) than it could ever be used in your car.
The proof of all this is right in the fuel prices. Gasoline costs at least 10 cents per mile. Electric cars drive around for only a penny or two per mile. The difference comes from efficiency. Much greater efficiency = much less pollution.
Believe it or not, your gas car uses electricity. It's true, large amounts of electricity are used to refine gasoline. Gasoline makes pollution during refining, it makes pollution when it's being delivered to gas stations, and it makes pollution when you use it. Anything else is an improvement.
Incidentally, hydrogen fuel-cell cars are also electric cars, including batteries, which are needed for acceleration. But they are less efficient than battery-powered cars, because of the extra electricity required to extract the hydrogen, and the wasted energy of transporting hydrogen to service stations. Also, fuel cell vehicles will always be more expensive than pure electric cars, because they are electric cars with a fuel cell added on.
Rather than adding fuel cells to electric cars, it makes more sense to add solar panels. Then, both the cost per mile and the pollution is reduced to ZERO. No other automotive fuel system can say this.
Even if you don't want to charge from solar panels - it doesn't matter if powerplants burn dirty fuel, because EVs are far more efficient than gas cars, therefore much less pollution per mile. See the link below for more info.
Are Nuclear Power Plants Bad For The Earth?
Are Nuclear Power Plants Bad For The Earth?
I'm Just Wondering Because Sarah Palin Said In Her Speech Yesterday That She Is Going To Build A Lot More Of Them...And Pipe Lines. (Pipe Lines For...Gas?)
Please Don't Give Me Links To Wikipedia, Thank You! :D
I agree with the above assessments of nuclear versus other choices. You can hire a lot of people in America and give them good paying jobs to safely manage and run a nuclear power plant to keep the environment cleaner, or you can operate a fossil plant with a lot fewer workers and higher fuel costs (coal, oil or gas) that pollutes continuously when it runs, elevates green house gases and if the oil comes from the middle east, raise the standard of living of people in another country instead of here in America.
Go to the Nuclear regulatory commission website for info.
You can also go to the NRC students corner at
to learn more about nuclear power works
Solar and wind are great and will help with diversifying energy sources, but it would take 800 to 1000 wind turbines to equal the output of one nuclear power plant. And the nuclear plant doesn't care if its windy or not to make electricity.
