Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that pick to run properly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of consumer buying choices, producing goodwill and improving service outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Many house owners opt to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This means that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The utility business are well-known for their fluctuating and undependable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can determine how much electrical energy will be generated, and most importantly, at exactly what price, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions
How Long Can Solar Energy Be Stored?
I Am Purchasing Panels To Help Consume Less Energy. I Need To Know If The Storage Is Long To Buy Less Panels. Trying To Figure If I Should Buy More Than Two. I Would Like To Run Normal Usage Of Lights In The Home.
Solar energy can't be stored at all.
As soon as the sun stops shining (at night) there is zero energy available.
What happens is that solar energy is transformed into electricity which can be stored in a battery.
The storage batteries are a crucial (and expensive) part of using solar energy.
You buy as many batteries as you require to run appliances during the night time. It needs to be tempered with the ability of the solar panels to charge up the batteries.
I think you better swap over to LCD lights if you want to run them off batteries. Even the "energy efficient globes use a lot of power.
How Is Solar Energy Converted Into Electrical Energy?
How Is Solar Energy Converted Into Electrical Energy?
Special crystals in the panels collect electrons as they hit the plates, sending them all through current gathering it in one system
Why Should The Us Use An Alternative Energy Source?
Writing A Persuasive Essay On It But Know Nothing About It
I would suggest to answer with questions that should have been asked alternately.
like.... "Why should the US use an alternative energy source for _________?"
For Cars- Why? I really do not know. We have had alternatives in the forms of electricity, steam, black powder, and solar for even up to 100 years! There just isn't a better "bang for the buck" so to speak... Or there isn't an alternative that is more efficient for less money than fossil fuels.
For USA's Power- We use several forms right now including: coal, water/hydro, natural gas, oil, and nuclear. What we should invest more in is the use of Nuclear Power Plants. It has a history of misinformation and misunderstanding around the world and especially in the United States. It is our cleanest, safest, and cheapest option for the money.
When Will We Have Solar Powered Vehicles On The Streets ?
I Know That Solar Roof Tops Are Available For Cars, But The Range Is Minimally Boosted. And Then The Solar Cars For Endurance Races.. But They Are Not Designs For The General Public. I Like To Know When Electric Vehicles Will Be Powered By At Least 50% Through Solar Energy And Built In Vehicle Solar Panels ?
All the vehicles Ive seen online are still just too heavy to use all the on board solar power to transport someone down the road. It becomes a trade off... you need more surface area to have more solar panels, and this adds more weight..
Some bikers have mounted solar panels on the roof, side, or pulled a trailer... and that's a good start, but my favorite is THEKPV.
This vehicle has solar panels as the wind fairing, plus the bike is only 50lbs.. He doesn't say how much solar power it uses riding down the road.. But the site mentions using the solar power to charge batteries, and capacitors in smaller groups so I assume he can utilize the 50 watts of on board solar power to match 50 watts from the battery and ride down the road on 100 watts @ 50% solar. This is probably very slow.. compared to a car.
Why Is China Investing In Green Technology When They Have More Coal Than Anyone?
Not Just To Export, But To Produce Their Electricity.
Why Would They Do That?
Is The Problem That They Have A Leftist Liberal Government That Isn'T Very Bright?
Is The Problem That They Just Don'T Understand Fauxnews Science?
Is The Problem That, Maybe It'S Warming There, But Not Over Here In N. America?
This is just my opinion which may not conform with the truth but a friend of a friend had been to China back in the eighties consulting to the Chinese companies building underground storage facilities for the Chinese government that had the capacity to house billions of barrels of oil, huge quantities of processed iron ores and other precious metals.
As the bloke's curiosity got the better of him, he asked one of the facility guides what the Chinese government was doing mass hoarding so much natural resources that weren't being released to the mass market, the guide replied 'They are preparing for the inevitable future when everything will become scarce and the price will eventually skyrocket'.
So just as the Chinese were preparing for all contingencies even as far back as the eighties, I would assume that they are still preparing for the contingencies for the future now by tapping into all avenues of energy generation knowing that eventually the domestic consumption of energy will only increase with increasing demand placed by ever increasing population not to mention geopolitical considerations and future projection of the price of natural resources as time factor will eventually deplete all conventional source of energy.
