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 property owner to use the sun to power everyday 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 strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, many home owners discover that the convenience, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly minimize and even remove your electric costs
Whether you're a property owner, business, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can make up a big part of your monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your energy bills and you'll still conserve a lot of money.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power bill cost savings, the typical American property owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the previous ten years, residential electrical power rates have increased by approximately 3 percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard against unforeseeable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a business or property owner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise assists you much better projection and handle your expenditures.
#4 Boost your home or business value
Multiple studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater property values and sell faster than non-solar homes. 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 educated about solar, need for homes equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market included 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 nation. This growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A normal residential solar panel system will remove three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are necessary elements of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding organisations that pick to operate properly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of consumer acquiring decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing organisation 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.
Numerous homeowners decide to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This means that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility business are notorious for their varying and unreliable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and basic math, we can compute how much electricity will be produced, and most notably, at what cost, for at least 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 Do We Use Energy For(Non And Renewable)?
Can You Tell Me What We Use Energy For? For Example We Use It For Electricty And Gas What Else. Also How Is Non Renewable And Renewable Energy Bad For Enevironment. And Last What Are Some Alternatives We Can Use? Thank You!
Everything. Energy doesn't mean what you think it does. Energy is the ability of a physical system to do work on another physical system.
So, literally, everything. Electricity is used to make circuits, and since electricity must travel in certain paths, from positive to negative (I think. it could be the other way. Sorry, I switch things around in my head all the time.) you can make it do things on the way. (this is a DRASTIC oversimplificaiton.)
Non-renewable energy is energy that comes from things like oil or nuclear power, which has been converted ultimately into heat and is thus useless. Renewable energy is stuff like wind or solar or timber, that can be (at least in theory ) propagated forever.
Can Someone Please, Please Explain How Solar Energy Is Transmitted,?
Like Sum It Up Please And Make It Easy To Understand. I Have A Test On Monday But I Was Away For The Lesson, Please No Websites Just A Summary:) Thank You And Sorry For The Trouble
Ps Please Make It Easy To Understand As I Am Only In Grade 7:)
Photons [what light is made of] are emitted from the Sun's nuclear fusion [Hydrogen being burned [fused] into helium. The photons from the sun transfer their energy by exciting atoms in an object the light comes in contact with.
How Does It Work?
What Is It Used For?
What Are Positives About Solar Energy?
What Are Negatives About Solar Energy?
how does it work?
It works by converting light energy into usable electrical energy. There is no other by-product.
what is it used for?
Powering our home, businesses, some cars, and countless science projects.
what are positives about solar energy?
endless* supply (*let's put it this way, if there was no more sun, we wouldn't be around to care)
what are negatives about solar energy?
None, really, but the only legitimate two I can think of are:
Can only be harvested half of the day (morning till twilight)
Relatively expensive for the solar panels, but hopefully cost will come down soon.
To Run 1 Ton Air Conditioner With 5000 Watts Inverter?
How Many Batteries Needed If I Want It To Run At Least 6 To 8 Hrs
I Am Welling To Buy 5000 Watt Inverter. It Is 12 Volt Input And 220 Volt Output With 5000 Watts Continues Power Supply.
One ton air conditioner = 3.516 KW output = 12,000 BTU/hr in british units
The inverter you specified indicated 90% efficiency.
Air conditioners in this range use approximately 1000watts = 1000 Volt Amperes (Use actual current drawn by your unit in calculation)
For example, this is a 0.97 Ton unit that draws 1056 watts:
At 12 Volts that means the constant current draw would be
(1000VA/12Volts) / 0.9 efficiency = 92.6A
To run for 8 hours you would need a MINIMUM of
92.6A x 8 hours = 740.8 Ampere hours of capacity.
This is of course not accounting for heat losses in the cabling, drop off in capacity of the batteries, etc.
This would mean at least 8 of the 33kg batteries shown at the bottom of this page (each is 100AH) wired in parallel:
Make sure to check the discharge rate for the battery rating. In this case the 100AH rate is for 20 hours. Since we are exceeding this discharge rate, we will not get the full 100AH per battery. AGM(Absorbed Glas Mat) batteries will be better in this regard.
Unless you are using Deep Cycle batteries most battery manufacturers recommend not discharging a Lead Acid cell below 50%. If so, you should allow for this by doubling the number of batteries.
It is also important to distinguish cooling capacity from power usage. The AC unit acts as a pump to move energy from the inside of the room to the outside. It can move 12,000 BTU/HR (or 3516 watts continuous) of energy from the inside of the building to the outside but only draws about 1000 watts (depending on the SEER of the unit).
The above poster did not understand this distinction.

What Happens To Solar Energy?
What do you mean what happen to it? If you mean why we don't have more things using solar energy then it's because we haven't invented anything that is worth the cost. The solar panels doesn't absorb enough to let you run everything with them. And you need to produce a lot to be able to absorb a little. So it's not worth it.
Some of it gets absorbed by the trees and algea to make their food while most becomes heat and a little bit of little.
