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 daily life: running your a/c unit, washing clothes, watching TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, lots of homeowners discover that the convenience, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly lower and even eliminate your electric expenses
Whether you're a house owner, company, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can make up a big portion of your monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your utility expenses and you'll still save a great deal of loan.
#2 Earn a great return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity expense savings, the typical American house owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight 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 ability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, residential electricity costs have increased by approximately 3 percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and secure versus unforeseeable increases in electricity costs. If you're a business or homeowner with changing capital, going solar likewise assists you much better forecast and handle your costs.
#4 Boost your home or business value
Several studies have discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater home worths and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for homes geared up 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 part of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate changes in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a terrific way to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A normal domestic photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are very important elements of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that decide to run properly. Businesses are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of consumer buying decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing service results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Many homeowners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The energy companies are well-known for their varying and undependable electrical energy prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and easy math, we can calculate just how much electrical energy will be created, and most importantly, at exactly what cost, for at least the next Twenty 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

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
Will Training To Be An Electrician Doing The Normal Apprenticeship Process Train Me To Install Solar Panels?
I Am Interested In Becoming An Electrican But Just Wanted To Make Sure That The Training They Will Give Me Will Be Relevant To Installing Solar Panels Which Is Something I Would Like To Get Into.
In today's apprenticeship probably very little. The panels are low voltage and can be installed by most anyone. Actually some companies look for people with roofing experience. However, the panels need to connect to the electrical system at some point and that would need some electrical knowledge. Commercial and large residential installations would be more in the area of an electrical contractor. A good combination would be a electrician who knew about battery storage systems, generator systems (wind turbines) and the interface systems for home and commercial systems. I would get my electrician background and then look for opportunities to move into the newer technologies where your electrician background is valuable.

This Is For A Lab Report For Solar Energy, I Need Some Help Editing It And Rewording To Improve.
Of Course, Solar Energy Has A Lot Of Benefits But Also Has Some Disadvantages, But Of Course Nothing Is Perfect. First, We Will Look At The Benefits Of Solar Energy. Solar Energy Gives Off No Pollution Since It Does Not Release Nitrogen Oxide, Carbon Dioxide, Sulfur Dioxide Nor Mercury Into The Air. Moreover, It Does Not Burn Fuel Nor Does It Generate Emissions. Solar Energy Is Renewable Because The Sun'S Rays Will Never Run Out Whereas Other Types Of Energy Such As Coal, Natural Gas, Propane, Gasoline, Wood, And Nuclear Energy Are Non-Renewable. With Solar Energy, You Can Make Money Even If You Are Not Leasing Your House, Many Markets, Solar Companies May Be Willing To Lease Your Roof/Land To Install Their Solar Installation. If You Install The Solar Energy Yourself, You Can Save A Lot Of Money, Which Ofcourse Is Just As Good As Making Money. Solar Energy Is Plentiful Since The Sun Will Be Around Much Longer Than Oil, Gas Or Coal Will Be And The Basic Elements Used To Make Solar Cells Such As Silicone Which Does Not Decompose But Is Recyclable And Aluminum Does Not Decompose But Is Recyclable And Can Be Recycled Over And Over Again. The Sun Is Out Around 12 Hours A Day, And In A Whole Day There Are 24 Hours. 12 Hours Out Of 24 Hours Is Half The Day Which Would Give People A Good Deal Of Time To Capture Energy. By Using Solar Energy, People Can Catch Some Of That Wasted Energy And Convert It Into Something Useful Which Can Be Then Stored And Even Sold To Your Local Utility Supplier For A Pretty Good Profit. Solar Energy Is Extremly Viable And You Need Not Worry About Replacing Anything For A Long Time And Most Solar Panels Come With A Performance Guarantee From 20 To 30 Years. And Lastly, As Much As 90% Of Export Income Of Some Developing Countries Used To Pay For The Importing Of Oil When Most Of That Imported Oil Goes To Power Generation. By Using Solar Energy, The Export Income Could Be Used For Investment In A Better Health, Education, Industry And Economic Development. Now, We Will Look At The Consequences. The Most Obvious Consequence Would Be The Sole Dependence On The Sun Which Means That You Either Have To Have An Alternate Source Of Electricity Or Have Some Stored. Then, The Primary Costs, Are High. Moreover, Solar Panels Require Quite A Big Area For The Installation To Achieve A Good Level Of Adaptability. And Lastly, Installation Of Solar Panels May Be Restricted By Local Bylaws And In Heavily Polluted Areas The Full Value Of The Energy That The Sun Creates Will Be Decreased. As You Can See By The Above There Are Abundant Benefits Of Solar Energy But There Are Also Consequences. If We Were To Weigh The Benefits And Consequences, I Would Say That The Benefits Far Outweigh The Consequences.
10 Points To Best Answer. And The Ba Award Goes To ...............................
While the benefits of solar energy make themselves perfectly clear, there are several disadvantages that must be taken into consideration. Let’s start by looking at the benefits of solar energy. Solar energy produces no nitrogen oxide, carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, or mercury, and is therefore a pollution free energy source. Furthermore, solar energy does not rely on the burning of fuel. Also, solar energy is 100% renewable because solar rays are an infinite source, whereas coal and natural gas are non-renewable. Moreover, the elements that create a solar unit are recyclable; such as silicone and aluminum. Solar energy provides a 12 hour window to capture energy. Utilizing solar energy is one of the most productive things that we can do because the supply is infinite and harmless to the environment.
With solar energy it is possible to make money. In many markets, solar companies may be willing to lease your land to install their solar panels. Moreover, if you install the solar panels yourself you can save a lot of money, which can be just as lucrative as making money. With solar panels, people do not need to worry about replacing anything for a long time, and most solar panels come with a performance guarantee for 20-30 years.

What Are The Pro And Cons Of Solar Power?
If We Have A Power Source, 24 Hours A Day That'S Slated To Last At Least A Billion More Years Or So, Why Is This Not Our Main Source Of Energy?
The problem is harnessing the power. We don't have solar panels that can transform 100% of insolation into usable commercial power, so solar energy cannot yet be used in the way you've described. Once the technology improves to the point that solar energy can be harnessed and sold for a profit, it will start to happen.
The pros of solar power are that it is non-polluting, has an ultimate source that is free of charge, and can be used on a small scale by private individuals. The cons are that a private individual's power generation is unlikely to satisfy his or her energy requirements in many cases (locations where there is not much sun and heating requirements are high due to cold, for example), the equipment used for power generation can be expensive and is not highly efficient, and the storage capacity of solar cells is insufficient to offset unlit periods such as nighttime or cloudy days.
Your concern about the validity of solar cells as the method for harnessing solar power is not without merit. But even though photovoltaic cells are not yet effective enough for wide-scale usage, I believe that they are fundamentally a viable technology. They just need refinement. Consider the automobile. When Bertha Benz made the first long-distance trip by car in 1888, from Mannheim to Pforzheim in Germany, it took her from dawn to dusk to drive the sixty miles. She had to stop numerous times to refuel and to improvise repairs from her possessions, using a hairpin and her own garter! The fundamental technology of the automobile was refined and developed over many years, and now a trip of this length can be completed by any casual driver in an hour without visiting a gas station or repair garage , and a racecar driver travels equivalent distances in about 20 minutes (though the vehicle does require maintenance in this case). This demonstrates that it is normal for a nascent technology to exhibit shortcomings that are eventually overcome through research and development.
Is Heat A Factor In How Much Energy Is Gained When Using Solar Panels?
For Example, If I Were Powering My House With Solar Panels, Would It Be More Efficient Or Effective, (Or I Guess Would I Get More Energy) Out Of A Day That Measured 90 Degrees Fahrenheit As Opposed To A Day That Is 70 Degrees Fahrenheit.
If you are talking about solar PV (photovoltaic), panels, (these are the solar panels that generate electricity), temperature DOES effect the power output. But it works opposite of your example. They actually work better in cooler temperatures. In other words, you will get more electricity on a cold, sunny day than you will on a warm, sunny day. The difference is not huge. It is a percentage point or two for every ten degrees cooler it is. But it is significant enough that solar system designers like myself need to know the temperature fluctuations in the area we are designing for. I know of a few improperly designed systems that were damaged on sunny winter days.
Solar thermal panels (the ones that heat water) do not work this way. A warmer sunny day is usually better, but again, the difference is not huge.
