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 everyday life: running your ac system, washing clothes, seeing TV, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, numerous home owners discover that the benefit, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably reduce or even remove your electrical bills
Whether you're a house owner, company, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can make up a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your energy bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.
#2 Earn a fantastic return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power costs savings, the typical American house owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 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 capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous ten years, property electrical energy prices have increased by approximately 3 percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure against unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a service or property owner with ever-changing cash circulation, going solar also helps you better projection and manage your expenditures.
#4 Boost your home or business worth
Numerous studies have actually discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater property worths and sell more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for homes equipped with solar 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 part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price changes in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is an excellent way to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A typical domestic solar panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are very important components of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding services that decide to run properly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of consumer acquiring decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing business results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Lots of house owners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
Since 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 changing and undependable electrical energy rates. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate what does it cost? electricity will be created, and most significantly, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed 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
- 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 Size Solar Panels Would Be Needed To Run A Air-Conditioner In A Small Rv?
You're going to find out that if the entire RV were covered in solar panels it wouldn't be enough to run an AC unit.A fan,yes.
How Come Solar Energy And Other Safer Power Sources Much Less Utilized To Replace Deadly Fossil Fuels?
There Must Be A Number Of Reasons Why. Pollution Of The Earth'S Surface And Atmosphere Are Critical Today As Never Before.
The answer is in the lack of political will and a mountain of disinformation from those powerful forces who wish to silence any talk of alternatives.
We are constantly told that alternatives like solar are too expensive with their tax credit subsidies.
What they don't tell you is the enormous hidden costs of oil and other fossil fuels. The subsidies to the oil and gas industries are estimated at up to $80 billion a year. The total hidden costs are estimated at up to $800 billion a year. If you paid that at the pump, gasoline would now be approaching $12 a gallon.
Subsidies to alternative energy are miniscule in comparison.
An energy bill that passed in a watered down form in December, would have taken $21 billion in tax credits from oil companies, to apply to renewal of the alt energy tax credits, which expire this year. 40 Republican senators basically stripped this provision from the bill, which Bush would have vetoed, anyway.
The new proposal is to take $18 billion and apply it to renewing the alt energy tax credits. There is still much opposition from Republicans.
Dis-information, like the talking head on FOX news who made the statement, which of course went unchallenged, that "solar couldn't power a small sailboat never mind contribute meaningfully to our nations energy needs."
That's in contrast to this article from Scientific American which proposes converting the entire U.S. electric grid to solar at a cost in public money that is a small fraction of what we now give oil companies in subsidies.
Scientific American A Solar Grand Plan
Green Wombat has a bunch of articles about what is already happening with solar thermal power plants in California and Arizona.
scroll down for stories:
And one solar thermal company has this to say.
"Solar thermal power plants such as Ausra's generate electricity by driving steam turbines with sunshine. Ausra's solar concentrators boil water with focused sunlight, and produce electricity at prices directly competitive with gas- and coal-fired electric power."
"Solar is one the most land-efficient sources of clean power we have, using a fraction of the area needed by hydro or wind projects of comparable output. All of America's needs for electric power – the entire US grid, night and day – can be generated with Ausra's current technology using a square parcel of land 92 miles on a side. For comparison, this is less than 1% of America's deserts, less land than currently in use in the U.S. for coal mines."
And from one of the articles at Green Wombat:
"In recent months, PG&E has signed deals for more than a gigawatt of electricity — enough to light more than 750,000 homes — with solar power plant developers."
"The solar thermal industry is in its infancy but utilities like PG&E (PCG), Southern California Edison (EIX) and San Diego Gas & Electric (SRE) have signed several contracts for solar power plants and negotiations for gigawatts more of solar electricity are ongoing."
Wind also has huge potential and is cost effective.
Why Do We Need To Use Solar Energy?
Why Do We Use Solar Energy And What Is The Point In It And Jow Do They Change It To Heat Energy.
There are two angles to view this question " why do we need to use solar energy?"
1. To achieve social responsibility:
We are daily using lots of fossil fuel and other carbon compounds, that are polluting our environment. Initiating Global Warmning, environmental imbalance, ozone layer depletion and which inturn is a big threat to the future human race.
Solar energy is a clean and a green energy, harnessing it will not pollute the environment or generate any adverse effects.
2. To achieve financial goals:
Solar energy after installation is INFLATION FREE source of power, which means you are not dependent on fluctuating raw material cost for your generation of power...This adds to energy independence.
Also in countries where conventional power is expensive and wind energy is not regular solar energy tends to be the most efficient solution.
In countries where power is not reliable, we can opt for green source of energy to replace diesel generators or battery backup.
I hope this answers your question at your satisfaction
How Do You Transport Solar Energy?
How Do You Move Solar Energy From One Place To Another If It Is The Sun How Do You Contain It And Transport It
Solar energy is frequently collected by devices called solar cells. These flat plates convert sun light to a little electricity which can then either be stored in batteries, used or sent out on the grid.
Solar energy (sunlight) can also be used to make plants grow. Once grown they can be harvested and shipped to locations where it can be burned as fuel or it can be transformed into alcohol or diesel and used as a fuel.
Sunlight can also shine on a field of mirrors that all reflect to one point that holds a tank of water that is boiled to make steam. The steam is used to make electricity by turning a generator. All in all there is not that much energy in a square foot of sunlight so it takes a lot of area to make much power. That is why you do not see things like solar cars.
Q-10:How Energy Can Be Obtained From Sunlight?Give Two Ways.?
1. by using photovoltaic cells which convert sunlight to electricity directly
2. solar cookers which concentrate heat energy onto food kept in small plastic containers to cook them fast
