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 home owners to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioner, cleaning clothing, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, numerous residents find that the convenience, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably decrease or even eliminate your electric bills
Whether you're a property owner, business, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can comprise a big portion of your monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create 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 utility expenses and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Make a terrific return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power costs cost savings, the average American house owner settles their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the past ten years, property electrical energy costs have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and safeguard versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're an organisation or property owner with changing capital, going solar likewise assists you much better projection and handle your costs.
#4 Boost your home value
Multiple studies have actually discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher property worths and offer more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial element of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price changes in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar market added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a terrific way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A typical property photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to 4 heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are necessary parts of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding organisations that select to operate responsibly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of consumer purchasing choices, creating goodwill and enhancing business results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Many property owners opt to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar company for electrical power-- 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 Financial investment
The utility companies are notorious for their changing and unreliable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can compute how much electricity will be produced, and most significantly, at what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 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

Frequently Asked Questions
What Do You Think About The Future Transportation?
Electric Cars, Solar Energy Powered Cars, Flying Vehicles, Robot Controlled...What Do You Think?
Everything you mentioned exists today: electric cars, solar cars, flying cars, RC vehicles... From this we might say that the "future" is here. But these things are not everywhere. They are not popular. In an age of hype and the latest I phone we forget that the general trend is for technology to catch on slowly. It took over 30 years for the cell phone to move from a "brick" to something that could fit in a pocket.
Sometimes what is "popular" is the old technology. A "tipping point" must be reached when the technology becomes acceptable by most people. And so it is the human part of the equation that is the most limiting factor for the "future of transportation."
What Provinces In Canada Use Solar Energy?
Just Wondering, As I'Ve Only Gotten Ontario, But I'M Sure There Are More Provinces In Canada Using It.
All provinces use solar energy. In fact, every country, state, county, and province in the world uses solar energy. Anywhere where there are plants or animals uses solar energy. Plants use solar energy to grow. Animals use solar energy to see.
Why We Choose Solar Energy Compared To Other Resources Of Renewable Energy?
I Need Help For My Summer Project Please (:
Most sources of energy renewable or not are from solar energy. Biomass is solar energy captured via photosynthesis and stored chemically. Wind power is from temperature gradient in the atmosphere due to heating from the sun. Hydro is from the evaporation of sea water and the subsequent precipitation at higher elevations. Fossil fuels are the solar energy captured by photosynthesis millions of years ago and stored chemically. All of these indirect methods of harvesting solar energy are very inefficient, photosynthesis has a maximum theoretical efficiency of 6.6%, then take into account that only a small portion of a plant is used for first generation biofuels and you can see that it's only a fraction of a fraction of 1% in efficiency. Contrast that to the current photovoltaic record of 42.8% efficiency
There are a few sources of "renewable" energy that aren't from solar energy. Nuclear energy is from the decay of radioactive elements left over from the formation of the Earth. Geothermal is heat from the molten core leftover from the formation of the Earth or from the melting of the tectonic plates as they move against each other. Tidal is from the kinetic energy of Earth's rotation and that of the moon's orbit. But these tap energy reserves much smaller than that of the sun.
You'll note that none of these energy sources are perpetual so "renewable" is a bit of a misnomer. But with the exception of fossil fuel, these are the sources of energy that tap energy reserves many times greater than can be conceivably consumed by us during a reasonable expectation for the life of our civilizations. At one time fossil fuels also appeared inexhaustible compared to our energy needs but then our energy needs increased.
If you look at how much energy is available, solar energy is available in quantities of up to 90 PW, that's peta-watts, at Earth's surface. Our entire global energy consumption peaks at 15 TW so solar energy is well in excess of our energy needs while indirect solar such as biomass, wind and hydro can in way theoretically meet our energy needs by themselves. Enough solar energy falls upon the Earth in 40 minutes to provide for the entire world's energy needs for an entire year.
Why Is Tidal Energy Needed?
The world needs energy to drive industry, agriculture, transport and to heat and light our homes. Sustainable, non-polluting energy sources are desperately needed, in view of the increasing demand. Tidal energy along with solar and wind is non-polluting and sustainable.
What Are The Advantages And Possible Disadvantages Of Using Solar Energy?
Great way to save power and preserve reasources. But it may be a bit unsitely and it may not be the most efficent use of your money (I would assume solar producing sources would be hard to come by money wise because they are not mass produced as frequently, and most poeple just assume not using them will work). If your going to go for all solar power, then get power saving appliances, that way you help the solar panels that help you.
