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 homeowner to use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothing, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, many homeowners discover that the benefit, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically reduce or even remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a property owner, company, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can comprise a big part of your month-to-month expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of money.
#2 Earn a great return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power bill savings, the typical American house owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the previous 10 years, residential electricity rates have increased by an average of three percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure versus unpredictable increases in electricity costs. If you're a business or house owner with ever-changing capital, going solar also assists you better forecast and handle your expenditures.
#4 Boost your home or business value
Numerous research studies have actually discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and sell more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, demand for homes equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential element of achieving 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 price changes in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry added tasks at a rate almost 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. Since solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a great method to decrease 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 common residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to four loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are essential components of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that choose to run responsibly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of customer acquiring choices, producing goodwill and enhancing company results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Lots of property owners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
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 energy business are well-known for their fluctuating and undependable electricity costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can determine just how much electrical energy will be produced, and most significantly, at what price, for at least the next 20 years (repaired 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
Help Me Please!!!!!!?
Tell Me Good Things That Nuclear Energy (Fossil Fuels) Can Do That Benefits The World That A Green Sources (Renewable Energy) Can'T Do. Thank You :)
Just to be clear, nuclear energy is not a fossil fuel. I don't know if it's just the phrasing, but they are two separate things. Fossil fuels are things like coal, natural gas, and oil. But I get you're asking about renewables versus non-renewables.
The first thing is that for many power stations that rely on the environment, you have to be very selective where you can put them. It's no good to build a solar station unless you get a lot of sun, or a wind farm unless you get a lot of wind, etc. Non-renewables give you a lot more freedom. If the world were to tear down ALL the non-renewables, we would start to run into issues of "okaaay... what can replace this one?"
But that's not even close to the biggest problem. Problem two: The output of most renewables (with the notable exception of dams) is pretty wimpy compared to coal and nuclear. They just aren't on the same playing field. To get rid of all of the non-renewables at our present technology level, you would be coating enormous parts of the world with renewable plants to make up for it. Ouch.
But still, not the biggest problem. Most renewables are key to the fact that their energy source is not always there. (The sun doesn't always shine, the wind doesn't always blow, etc.) So a big part of that technology is stockpiling and storing the energy... so everyone's lights will stay on 24/7. That's what capacitors do. Very unfortunately, our capacitor technology is not what it needs to be for renewables to really be awesome. Energy storage is VERY hard on a big scale. If there is an extended period of low input, there would be massive blackouts. And if we haven't got our non-renewables hanging around to play back-up, then what?
I do support renewables. I think the world should be diversifying its energy sources and taking the weight off of the bigger plants. And there are some interesting renewable concepts that may have decent promise, particularly because they don't have the capacitor problem since their energy sources are constant.
But the population needs to understand that it is not politics and it is not money standing in the way. It is technology. I have faith in human innovation. We will get there. But we are not there yet, and it's going to take quite a lot of time because these are very tricky problems. Green energy is still a baby. It can help, but it cannot stand alone.
Alternative Energy Research Paper?
So My English Class Has To Write A 15 Page Research Paper And We'Re Working On Picking Topics. My First Thought Was To Write It About Alternative Energy (Green Energy, Other Fuel Sources, Etc.). The Thing Is That I Have To Argue Something In The Paper But I Dont Know What I Could Argue About This Topic. Any Input On This Topic Is Greatly Appreciated Thanks!
Yep I just did a shorter version on the same topic not too long ago. The way I did it was to look at the energy savings and environment versus cost. Lets say you want to put up a wind turbine to energize your house. Now that will set you back around 80K. It will last you around fifteen years minus what it costs for repairs and maintenance. Now if you were just hooked up to the grid, your monthly electric bill is say 100 a month, 1200 annually, in 20 years it would cost you 24K. There is wind, solar, geothermal and others but the other caveat is manufacturing. To build a transformer, wind turbines, geothermal piping, pumps they still have to be built somewhere as in a factory that is tied to the grid, coal plants, nuclear power plants and so on so where is the environmental savings? The one thing I could do was look ahead to the future but not in five or ten years but maybe your kids, kids, kids, and a hundred years from now, not two years before the next politician can get himself elected blabbing about it. So basically I took a stand point of yes, it is good (and yes I do agree that we need to do something different) but for right now it is more expensive for us to put that out on the market like you would buy a loaf of bread than to stick with what we have until more viable "cost effective" solutions are found. By the way they have been doing wind turbines in California since the 80' and what? They still have nuclear and coal plants? :) So it is going to take a lot of time and my argument that was a hundred years from now like I said earlier. So I think if you might want to take the stance of yes, it is a good thing and yes there are many sources available and you can find resources for quite a few they are working on right now but cost effectiveness is currently not there but still we need to look far into the future and maybe not so much in our lifetimes that we will or even can rid ourselves of dependency on natural resources such as oil, gas, etc. I'll throw in the "conclusion" of my paper so you can get an idea of the azimuth I took on it to give you an idea and maybe you can use it or not but in either case hope it helps.
I stuck with Solar, Wind and Geothermal for this paper:
Alternative energy sources being developed today are still in the stages of being more than a hefty goal to rid ourselves of fossil fuels and nuclear sources of energy. While all three have distinct advantages in that many are technically “free, renewable, and to many degrees sustainable,” each have their associated “Achilles heels” in regard to startup, manufacturing and installation costs and even more so when considering the added future cost of maintaining the systems, early replacement of major components and in the case of geothermal energy sources, the high possibility that the area used can “dry up” in less than a year or last for decades. As a long term goal, finding cost effective and viable alternative energy sources is a must when thinking eons ahead of our own lifetimes while the major factor to overcome is the current monetary costs and what can be manufactured as a replacement for individual consumers or at the very least, spread the higher cost of installation and maintenance and usage as a lower effective cost across a larger spectrum of a community or population while decreasing and eliminating our dependency on fossil fuels as our main energy source.
Energy Resources Other Than Non-Renewable Energy Are Generally Referred To As Alternative Energy Sources.?
Why Is It Important To Develop Alternate Energy Sources?
It's important because primary, finite energy sources, like coal, can run out sooner than later. There's no shortage, yet we all aren't conserving as much as we possibly could.
Alternate energy like nuclear, thermal, solar, etc. also have great potential to outdo fossil fuels, and what they are capable of currently.
Plus, burnt coal, oil, and other fuels derived from fossils/long dead organisms, give off tons of delicious carbons and such into the air, which isn't healthy, but isn't the end of the world. Though, it does correlate with how the earth changes over time.
In short, it's important because it is useful, slightly unknown to us, and maybe a tad safer.
The real question is, why wouldn't it be important?

How Is Hydroelectric Energy A Form Of Solar Energy?
If A Force Is In The Negative Direction, Then The Work It Does Is Negative, True Or False?
What Kind Of Quantity Is The Kilowatt Hour?
You increase your total mechanical energy on a trampoline by jumping in such a manner that you send energy into the elastic cords which hold the mat. It is the same idea as pumping up a swing. you use your muscles to put energy into the system.
Hydroelectric is a form of solar because solar energy evaporates the water which falls as rain and is trapped behind the dam to generate electricity.
Force does work regardless of the direction, it takes work to change the velocity of a car whether to speed up or slow down.
A killowatt hour is a measure of electrical output equal to
3,600,000 joules. see the link below for details.
How To Save Money On Electricty Bill?
I'Ve Read About Making Solar Panels, But I Want Scientific Answers, And Advice First. Is It Worth It? Are There Any Other Safe Ways/Substitutes To Paying Hundreds A Month For Electricity?
For Solar Energy, you're going to have to put in at least $20 - $30,000 for the panels. You're going to have to have some sort of storage tank for the stored energy to be released by your Solar Panels into. With extra energy, you can sell it to power companies for some $$. You need a storage tank because, what if you have a cloudy day? You need some of that energy to back up your refrigerator or computer!
~Hope this helps! It costs you a lot at first, but it all works out in the end!
