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 unit, washing clothes, viewing TV, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, lots of residents find that the benefit, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly decrease or perhaps eliminate your electrical expenses
Whether you're a property owner, business, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can comprise a big portion of your monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your energy expenses and you'll still save a lot of money.
#2 Make a great 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 standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power expense savings, the typical 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 increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical power rates have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and protect against unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're an organisation or homeowner with ever-changing capital, going solar also assists you better projection and handle your expenditures.
#4 Boost your home or business value
Several studies have discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater home values and offer quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, need for properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market included tasks 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 development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a terrific way to reduce your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A common residential solar panel system will eliminate three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are essential parts of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding organisations that pick to operate responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of customer acquiring decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing business results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Numerous homeowners pick to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar provider for electricity-- 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 Financial investment
The energy companies are well-known for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and basic math, we can calculate what does it cost? electricity will be produced, and most importantly, at what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty 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

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 Is Solar Energy?
I Need To Know What Solar Energy Is And A Example Plz I Only Need 1 Small Parigragh
It's the light energy that comes from the sun. It's a renewable source of energy which means it cannot be vanished no matter how often we use it.This energy, in the form of heat and light, drives the climate and weather and supports all life on Earth. Sunlight along with solar resources such as wind and wave power, hydroelectricity and biomass account for over 99.9% of the available flow of renewable energy.
I hope that helps.

What Is Solar Energy? And What Are Two Main Ways Of Using Solar Energy To Produce Electricity. Thanks. =]
More energy from sunlight strikes the Earth in one hour than all of the fossil energy consumed on the planet in one year.
Photovoltaic conversion, the direct generation of electricity from sunlight, is a clean and inexhaustible source of electricity generation. Photovoltaics (or PV cells) are now commercially available, but the cost per watt is still much too high for wide-scale practical implementation, and challenges exist in scaling this technology to the terawatt ( One trillion watts) scale.
The conversion of sunlight into chemical fuels, an example of which is the splitting of water to make hydrogen. Although the electrolysis of water is straightforward, currently available methods require a power source and a platinum catalyst. By using solar energy to replace conventional electrical power sources that ultimately use fossil fuel, and by developing alternative catalysts to platinum (which is expensive and scarce),
What Is Solar Energy?
I Am Doing A Research Project So If You Could Please Answer This As Detailed As Posible That Would Be Great!!!! Thanks!!!
The sun has produced energy for billions of years. Solar energy is the solar radiation that reaches the earth.
Solar energy can be converted directly or indirectly into other forms of energy, such as heat and electricity. The major drawbacks (problems, or issues to overcome) of solar energy are: (1) the intermittent and variable manner in which it arrives at the earth's surface and, (2) the large area required to collect it at a useful rate.
Solar energy is used for heating water for domestic use, space heating of buildings, drying agricultural products, and generating electrical energy.
In the 1830s, the British astronomer John Herschel used a solar collector box to cook food during an expedition to Africa. Now, people are trying to use the sun's energy for lots of things.
Electric utilities are trying photovoltaics, a process by which solar energy is converted directly to electricity. Electricity can be produced directly from solar energy using photovoltaic devices or indirectly from steam generators using solar thermal collectors to heat a working fluid.
Out of the 14 known solar electric generating units operating in the US at the end of 2004, 10 of these are in California, and 4 in Arizona. No statistics are being collected on solar plants that produce less than 1 megawatt of electricity, so there may be smaller solar plants in a number of other states.

What Are Two Internal Sources Of Energy In The Earth And How Do They Affect The Crust?
Please Add Detail And Examples. Thank You!
"Sources of Energy
The Earth has two basic sources of energy - that reaching the Earth from the Sun (Solar Energy) and that reaching the surface of the Earth the Earth itself (Internal or Geothermal Energy).
Solar Energy - reaches the Earth in the form of radiant energy, and makes up 99.987% of the energy received by the Earth.
About 40% is immediately reflected back into space by the atmosphere and oceans.
Some is converted to heat and is absorbed by the atmosphere, hydrosphere, and lithosphere, but even this eventually escapes into space.
Some is absorbed by plants during photosynthesis and is stored in plants, used by other organisms, or is stored in fossil fuels like coal and petroleum.
Solar Energy drives the water cycle, causing evaporation of the oceans and circulation of the atmosphere, which allows rain to fall on the land and run downhill. Thus solar energy is responsible for such natural disasters as severe weather, and floods.
Internal Energy - is generated within or because of the Earth. It only amounts to about 0.013% of the total energy reaching the Earth's surface, but is responsible for deformational events that build mountains and cause earthquakes, for melting in the Earth to create magmas that result in volcanism. Two source of internal energy are:
Some elements like Uranium, Thorium, and Potassium have unstable isotopes that we say are radioactive.
When a radioactive isotope decays to a more stable isotope, subatomic particles like protons, neutrons, and electrons are expelled from the radioactive parent atom and are slowed and absorbed by surrounding matter.
The energy of motion (kinetic energy) of these particles is converted to heat by the collision of these particles with the surrounding matter.
Although radioactive isotopes like 235U (Uranium), 232U, 232Th (Thorium), and 40K (potassium) are not very abundant in the Earth, They are sufficiently plentiful that large amounts of heat are generated in the Earth.
Conversion of Gravitational Energy
Gravity is the force of attraction between two bodies.
The force of gravity acts between the Sun, Earth, and Moon to create tidal forces, which cause the Earth to bulge in the direction of the Moon. This bulging is kinetic energy, which is converted to heat in the Earth.
Gravity has other energy effects near the surface of the Earth. All objects at the Earth's surface are continually being pulled toward the center of the Earth by the force of gravity.
When an object moves closer to the center of the Earth by falling, slipping, sliding, or sinking, kinetic energy is released."
What Are Your Views On Solar Energy?
Just Doing A Controlled Assesment At School And Part Of The Qwuestion Is To Write About Peoples Opinions On It Please Help ??? Xoxoxoxo
Solar energy is on the face of it a very good way to get energy from a renewable source. However there is a down side, this is in the requirement for batteries to store this energy for later use, these batteries are not that efficient, nor are they that "green" to make.
To power small things, e.g mobile phones etc requires only a small solar panel, however if you wanted to run your home completely on solar energy you would require a large solar panel array and a lot of batteries, and inverter etc all this is at the moment quite expensive to set up.
Solar energy to heat water is a good solution, even if the weather is only warm enough to partially heat it it will reduce costs and the amount of other energy needed, hot water solar systems are easily fitted to most homes.
The total amount of power/heating you get from your solar system will of course depend on the amount of sunshine available, works well in areas where the sunshines, but in extreme northern and southern regions of course this is limited to the shorter winter days.
Saying all that solar energy is a good thing and one that hopefully will be developed future, already solar "power stations" are in use providing clean power, these look st to be expanded and technology will improve their efficiency.
