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 daily life: running your a/c unit, washing clothing, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are significant, many property owners find that the convenience, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly lower or perhaps eliminate your electric costs
Whether you're a homeowner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can make up a large portion of your monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your utility costs and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity bill savings, the typical American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the past ten years, property electrical energy rates have actually increased by approximately three percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a business or homeowner with ever-changing cash circulation, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and manage your costs.
#4 Boost your house worth
Numerous research studies have actually found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and offer more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into factor to consider 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 solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key component of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost changes in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth 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 considerable contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent way to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A normal residential photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are crucial parts of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding organisations that opt to run properly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of consumer buying choices, developing goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving 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 money down.
Lots of house owners opt to fund 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, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar company for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
As of 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 well-known for their varying and unreliable electricity costs. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can determine what does it cost? 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
- 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.

seems easy but it's not.
even if you cover a car with solar cells, the energy they provide will be much less than needed for a normal car usage.
Are We About To See A Huge Growth In The Solar Energy Sector?
My thought is probably not in the near term, at least in the US. If we invest in renewables, we'll probably invest more in wind technology. The primary reason is that wind is further along in terms of development as a technology. The best measure of a technology's maturity and readiness for use is looking at it's cost per kilowatt hours. Right now, wind costs about 5 cents per kilowatt hours, so that's in line with how much it costs to generate electricity from petroleum based fuels. I think wind is also easier to understand. Make larger windmills, and put them in better places, will bring down costs even more.
Solar power is still much more expensive, too high for widespread adoption. To make things a little confusing, there are many more competing technologist in the solar energy generation space. One is the use of photovoltaic cells that convert solar energy to electricity. The other converting solar energy to physical (boiling water), to electrical energy (via steam power electrical generator). Both still being studied.
The important thing that will determine if solar is adopted in this country in the next few years is subsidization. On it's own merits, solar is still too expensive. The US has the land resources to support either wind or solar, unlike many other countries. If I were to guess, I'd say wind has bigger potential in the short run.
Can You Please Explain How A Solar Cell Converts Optical Energy To Electrical Energy?
Please read the excellent article on the subject here:
Can The Nuclear Material From Decommisioned Atomic Bombs Be Used In Nuclear Power Plants?
Researching Benefits Of Nuclear Power Vs Fossil Fuels
The answer is a yes...but.
It is called mixed-oxide or MOX technology and if only a small fraction of the fuel is replaced with plutonium, many reactor designs will work fine. A reactor that runs on nothing but MOX is a different matter, altogether, and needs to be designed that way.
There are any number of concerns using Pu in reactors, though. First of all there is the proliferation risk and the cost to deal with that is enormous, both in terms of safety engineering, policing and politically. Most likely all of that would fall back in one way or another on the tax payer.
Secondly, natural Uranium is dirt cheap, literally and would become even cheaper if MOX was introduced on a large scale. Now, the people who mine Uranium wouldn't like that and it turns out that they have enormous political clout. They will probably always get enough politicians on their side, at least in the US, to suppress any attempts for fuel recycling.
But it is worse, still, because countries which reprocess like the UK, accumulate enormous amounts of Pu even without trying to make any more of it! It is simply a by-product of many nuclear fission reactor designs.
about Plutonium with a few sentences about MOX and the idea to "burn" this stuff.
I don't expect that the world will establish a proliferation safe MOX recycling culture anytime soon. By the time we are smart enough to do that (50+ years from now), solar energy will probably have made it unnecessary to operate reactors on a large scale. Or so I hope. The less Pu we have to deal with, the better. The more we can bury miles underground, the better for the world.
What Will Happen If You Run A Solar Panel Without Connecting It To Any Thing Will It Gey Damaged?
No, as long as the 2 wires coming off the solar panel are not connected to anything doesn't store energy. Depending on the area you live in the cells in the panel could be damaged but it would take years.
