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
Why Does Japan Rely On Nuclear Energy So Much - What About Hydro,Solar,Wind Etc?Are They Widely Used In Japan?
I Know Japan Doesn'T Have Very Many Natural Resources In The Way Of Gas, Oil Etc But What About The Above Mentioned Options Such As Huge Wind Turbine &Quot;Farms&Quot;, Solar Energy, Hydroelectric Energy? No Offence But Isn'T It Rather Silly To Build Nuclear Reactors In Such An Earthquake Prone Area?
Here In Ireland We Don'T Use Nuclear Energy And We Certainly Don'T Use Enough Sustainable Energy, I'M Not Totally Opposed To Nuclear But If We Did Ever Decide To Go That Way At Least We'Re Not In An Earthquake Prone Zone. It'S Terrible What Happened In Japan And It'S Terrible What Could Yet Happen Due To Radiation But Surely That Could Have Been Foreseen As Japan Is In An Earthquake Zone? Thanks.
Solar water heaters are popular in Japan. There are wind turbines, and hydro dams on every river worth damming. Geothermal and tidal have their projects as well. However solar obviously doesn't work at night, and it isn't always windy. A reactor turns out electricity 24/7, rain or shine. Therefore wind turbines, etc. can add electricity to a grid, but not anchor it. No matter where they are installed wind turbines are mostly just for show, they need %100 backup from another source of energy. Solar water heaters on the other hand can heat up a tank of water every day and it stays warm overnight. I really doubt that Japan will turn away from nuclear due to the incident at Fukushima #1, which is 40 years old. Therefore the argument will be that it is time to construct a new generation of safer reactors that incorporate the lessons learned from this incident.
What Is Solar Energy?
I Have To Reteach My Class About What Solar Energy Is And The Main Key Points. I Also Have To Give Them An Activity Such As A Worksheet, Bingo, Or Like A Crossword Puzzle. What Vocab Words Would Deal With Solar Energy?Any Ideas?Help!
solar panel are example of using energy directly from the sun light.as sun light passes through the panel it will help generate electricity for use.these energy can convert into light and heat energy.keywords for ur puzzle:
Which Energy Carrier Is The Future And Why?
The best energy is solar energy. It is limitless (until sun explodes in a couple million years). Big bad companies however prefer you use Hydrogen because it's not free like the Sun.
How Does Energy Affect The Economy As A Whole?
All Energies. Ex. Solar, Wind, Nuclear, Oil, Fossil Fuels, Biofuel, Etc.
Solar, wind, and biofuels have a very very marginal effect, because the vast majority of electrical energy is not produced from them.
Nuclear is a big one. A very good chunk of U.S. electricity is produced via this source, almost 1/5, in fact.
Fossil fuels are the biggest. Oil, coal, and natural gas power many many homes and businesses. I would guess roughly 2/3 of our electrical energy comes from these sources.
It should be obvious how gasoline and diesel and other fuels affect the economy. If you don't believe in their impact on something such as inflation, explain why "core" inflation studies exist.
