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 resident to use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning unit, cleaning clothes, seeing TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, lots of homeowners find that the convenience, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically decrease or even eliminate your electric expenses
Whether you're a property owner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can comprise a big portion of your month-to-month expenses. With a photovoltaic 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 lower your energy costs and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity expense savings, the average 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 costs
One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical power prices have actually increased by an average of 3 percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure against unforeseeable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a service or homeowner with fluctuating money flow, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and manage your expenses.
#4 Increase your property worth
Multiple research studies have found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher home values and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for homes equipped with solar 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 achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry included tasks 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 growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is an excellent way to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A common domestic photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are essential components of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding companies that choose to operate properly. Services are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of consumer getting decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing service results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no money down.
Numerous house owners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar supplier for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy 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 energy companies are well-known for their fluctuating and undependable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and simple math, we can calculate what does it cost? electrical power will be created, and most notably, at exactly 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

Frequently Asked Questions
Is It Worth Buying Solar Power For A Home?
My Dad Is Retiring In A Few Years, And He Is Looking Into This. I Know That This Is What One Of My Teachers Did When He Retired, But I Don'T Really Want To Ask Him How It'S Been Goin ;)
So, What Are The Pros And Cons Of Buying Solar Power For A House?
P.S. I Live In Canada And I Live On The Bay, So It Is Only Sunny Like 50-60% Of The Time.
Solar heating may be an excellent option for him. Rather than converting the sun's energy to electricity at about 20% efficiency, you could convert it directly to heat at about 85% efficiency. You can use solar water heating to heat your water instead of a traditional power consuming water heater, and solar air heaters to heat the air in the house, supplementing your existing heater.
The Canadian government has some grants available to help pay for it from their Grants under their ecoENERGY Retrofit – Homes program. http://oee.nrcan-rncan.gc.ca/residential...
You can also look into a grid tied solar electric system that has solar panels and an inverter, but no batteries. You just generate some of your power during the day, and buy the rest from the electric company. That is much more affordable and less complicated than a battery based system.

In Relation To Solar Energy And Wind Power Only!! What Would You Say Is Ontario'S Present And Future Energy Needs
I Have No Idea What They Want From Me Here And Any Help Would Be Greatly Appreciated!!!
i only know of one thing related to ontario, and that is a solar company called Enerworks. they are based out of ontario and are north america's leading solar panel producer. i believe some of their dealers have installed systems in ontario as well. look them up.
Science Teachers- Renewable And Nonrenewable Resources?
I Need An Experiment To Do With Grade School Children About Renewable And Nonrenewable Resources. Any Suggestions? Maybe Something With Hydropower Or Solar Energy?
There are some good sites with various projects that might work for you.
One project that is a good example of solar vs conventional power is to compare some solar cells to batteries. I got some cells and NiCad batteries from those solar yard lights (my neighbor is not a good driver - so I put pieces of the damaged lights to reuse). I have a bunch of old promo Frisbees that I got from a trade show. Also lying around were a few of those little battery powered hand held personal fans. They were small and light enough to rig up on a plate to fit into the Frisbees. This made little fan boats. Power at least one with solar cells, Another with a regular battery and a third with a NiCad in series with the solar cells. Put all three in a kiddie pool and see which one runs the longest. They kind of play bumper boat for a while that is fun to watch.
What Is A Method To Measure The Amount Of Energy A Solar Cooker Device Consumes And Produces?
I Am Thinking About Using These Blueprints For My Cooker. Http://Mysite.Mweb.Co.Za/Residents/Net02833/Makebox.Htm
For an estimate, search the web for the average solar insolation for your area for this time of year. From that, calculate the average energy arriving over your collection area each hour. For an actual measurement, line a small, closed glass container with felt, fill it with a carefully measured quantity of water, and measure its temperature increase. It will lose some heat to conduction, convection, and radiation, but it will absorb nearly all the energy landing on it.
To get the other measurement I think you want, build a second, identical unit but with no collectors or sunlight. Heat it electrically and measure how much power you need to apply to create conditions comparable to the solar unit (with identical food inside). That will give you the most meaningful comparison without complicated instrumentation.
