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 utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, cleaning clothes, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, many property owners discover that the benefit, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably minimize or even eliminate your electrical bills
Whether you're a house owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can comprise a large portion of your month-to-month expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your utility expenses and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power expense cost savings, the typical American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the past 10 years, property electrical energy prices have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and protect against unpredictable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're an organisation or property owner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and handle your costs.
#4 Increase your home or business worth
Multiple studies have discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher home worths and offer more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key part of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate fluctuations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A typical residential solar panel system will eliminate 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are essential components of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that choose to operate responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" credentials are an effective driver of customer getting choices, developing goodwill and improving business outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Many property owners choose to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The energy business are infamous for their fluctuating and undependable electrical energy rates. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can compute what does it cost? electricity will be created, and most notably, at what price, for a minimum of 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does Anyone Know The Average Cost To Install A Solar Panel And Wind Power System?
How Much Will It Cost For A Working Solar Panel And Working Wind Mill?
I can tell you how much my system cost. The total was $26K, but I got a $10K rebate from my utility and I'll receive a $2K tax credit. Next year the fed. tax credit will increase to 30% of the total cost. I have a 3.75kwh system with 19 panels. I generate over 75% of my electricity in the summer and so far this winter I'm still at about 50%.
Just to give you an idea of the savings, I should break even in my 6th year. The system is guaranteed for 25 years, so I'll be getting at least 18 years of free energy. My highest bill in the summer was under $20 and I haven't seen a bill above $35 since they were installed.
Where you live, the direction your home faces and shade factors will determine how much energy you can generate. Getting 1-2 years of usage history will help determine what size system will work best for you. I suggest contacting a local licensed contractor and having them give you a free no obligation bid. That is the best way to see what is possible and the costs for your specific situation.
Why Is The Surface Of A Solar Heater Panel Black?
Things are black because they reflect very little or no light. Absorbing all of this light causes an object to become warm, and so solar heaters are best to be made black.
Seriously, Are There Really Any Practical Applications For Solar Panel Generated Electricity?
We Have Known For Years That Solar Cells Have Been Useful For Powering Traffic Control Signs, Wristwatches, Cellphones, And Even Laptops. Are Their Really Any Useful, Practical, Applications For Solar Generated Electrical Power Today?
Being such a practical person you are unlikely to go by ship when you could fly. Flying you are unlikely to survive a landing at sea. Although someone in a life raft in the middle of the ocean may curse the sun but with solar distillation devices now fairly standard they might survive longer than any batteries would land.
You might use an 18 wheeler to kill flys but a flyswatter is probably a more efficient tool. Likewise solar thermal panels are far more efficient than solar electrical panels and far better suited to general heating, hot water heating and air conditioning. Concentrated solar thermal energy is being used in all the new largest solar electrical installations. These installations incorporate heat storage in thermal salts to allow for 24/7 operation.
Solar air panels remain the cheapest way to capture solar energy for heating. It is the same principal that has been used in greenhouses, solar rooms, passive solar houses and from designing these environments we have a better understanding of thermal mass to store heat energy.
Direct sunlight to electricity is the specialty of solar photovoltaic panels. It has a limited range where it is most useful. These tend to be were there is less infrastructure and lightness and simplicity are more highly valued. There are growing applications in Solar cars and electric aircraft as well as some survival and wilderness equipment. Solar panels for homeowners can be cost effective particularly in areas not supplied with grid electricity. Many boats are now charging their batteries with solar panels rather than running the engines for the same purpose.
How Many Wind Turbines And Solar Panels Does The World Need To Replace Coal, Oil And Nuclear Power?
I Heard The Wind Turbines, Solar Panels So Far Provide America With Around 2% Of Our Energy. So Since Liberals Appear To Want To Replace Natural Energy With Man Made Products, That Cause Massive Pollution By The Way To Make- How Long Will That Take 30 Years, 100 Years? How Many Wind Turbines Will Airplanes And Birds And Parachute Jumpers Smash Into, Isn'T That A Problem? How Do We Rid Of Natural Energy Before We Have The Liberal Back Up Plan - We Don'T Really Have ?
How Do They Think This Is Gonna Work? Its Not Logical, We Need To Come Up With More Ideas!
That Battery Idea Kinda Sucks Since Batteries Need Natural Energy To Work.
Wow you "heard" this and you "heard" that-I heard that it isn't dangerous to build a nuclear reactor that can only withstand a 7.5 earthquake a half mile from the San Andreas fault-just a little bit more false con propaganda. I wonder if they're rethinking that little nugget...
BTW little genius-wind and solar are "natural" energy; coal must be mined and processed which is a tremendously polluting process even before it's burned as fuel, which is not natural. Same with the nuclear materials used in nuke plants, except it's an even dirtier process. Your contention that the production of solar panels and wind turbines is more polluting than coal or nukes is more than simply false-it's ridiculous. Finally, just because your uninformed brain can't conceive of how a sustainable power grid would work doesn't mean there's not a plan in place, or that it can't work. I suggest you inform yourself further on this subject, the information is cleverly concealed in books.
Ahh, the geniuses are out in force today..."Woofy", where do you think the energy to run those electric motors is going to come from? Fairies? Elves? Reddy Kilowatt?
"golden", you answered your own question-solar systems ARE better now and have steadily been improving since their inception and have become more affordable smaller, lighter and far more efficient. Too bad the government chose not to fund solar research in favor of giving welfare to oil companies-we'd be even farther along and the systems would be even better.
"hotshot", I don't mind $4 gas at all; the last gas crunch in 2008 led to a dramatic reduction in driving by Americans as well as increased interest in and purchases of fuel efficient vehicles-apparantly it's the only motivation to conserve most people will heed. Why else do I not mind? My husband and I own a (16 year old) car that gets 30MPG city, 34MPG freeway, we (purposely planned to) live within a 3 mile radius of our jobs, we consider carefully the necessity of car trips and plan them to reduce the numbers of miles we drive and we practice hypermiling. Guess what? We fill our 10 gallon tank every other week. Again, that's ten gallons of gas for two weeks of driving-therefore I have no need to whine about $4 a gallon gas,.
Which Career Should I Chose?
Ok Well I Would Like A Career Either In Automotives Or Power Plants. I Heard Rights Now The Automotive Field Isn'T Doing Very Good, So I Am Really Leaning Towards Becoming A Power Plant Operator.
I Would Like To Work With Solar Panels Or Wind Turbines. I Just Love The Fact That They Are Providing Power The Clean And Safe Way. I Would Really Want To Work In A Solar Power Plant, But I Don'T Know If There Is Such A Thing.
What Are Some Careers Related To What I Have Stated Above?
Go for the Power plants. It's a job that doesn't seem to be going out of demand any time soon, and it probably will be in high demand in the future soon.
