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 utilize the sun to power daily life: running your ac system, washing clothing, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while decreasing 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, lots of property owners discover that the benefit, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Leading Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly reduce and even remove your electric costs
Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can make up a large part of your regular monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your utility costs and you'll still conserve a great deal of loan.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the finest methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy expense cost savings, the average American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, property electrical power prices have gone up by an average of 3 percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard against unforeseeable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a business or homeowner with changing money circulation, going solar also helps you better forecast and handle your expenses.
#4 Boost your residential or commercial property worth
Numerous studies have discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher home values and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated 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 key component of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate variations in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent method to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A typical domestic photovoltaic panel system will get rid of three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are very important parts of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that opt to operate responsibly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of consumer acquiring decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing company outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Lots of house owners select to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This means that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
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 utility companies are well-known for their varying and undependable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and easy math, we can compute just how much electrical energy will be generated, and most notably, 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

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
How Does Solar Help Our Environment?
Solar what? Energy? Solar collectors are generally very dark to absorb as much sunlight as possible, preventing it from reflecting back into space, where it is lost. Eventually all the absorbed energy, whether converted to electricity or not, is converted to heat in the environment, causing global warming to increase even beyond the beneficial rate due to CO2 release. This increases the percentage of land on earth suitable for agriculture.
If You Could, How Would Lessen The Price Of Oil?
It'S 140$ Per Barrel Now, So I Was Wondering If You Could Do Some Changes, What Would You Do To Make Oil Cheaper?
&Quot;Oil Surged Above $140 A Barrel In New York Trading, Compounding Fears That Soaring Inflation Will Hamper A Global Economy Already On The Ropes.&Quot;
So What Would You Do To Change This Huge Problem That Takes A Nice Little Chunk Out Of Your Wallet/Purse.
Well, its a tough issue. But, i have some ideas.
First, we must increase the production of oil. It must go up, but not toooo much. Let's hope that some moderate increases by the Saudis (if they do in the future) can have an impact..I hope..
But I think we should really try to increase alternative energy. We must try to increase solar, wind, and hydrogen power. We should provide incentives to companies (just like how McCain and Obama have offered) that create goods that use alternate energy. Reward companies that make cars with alternate energy. Give tax breaks, etc and fund investment into 'green energy. Also, we must buy more cars with MPGs.
There needs to be incentives to create better MPG cars. Also, if its possible, there needs to be a way to make SUVs more fuel-efficent. If not, then there needs to be rewards and tax cuts for companies that make clean energy vehicles (or ones with great MPG).
Lastly, consumers need to make changes. They need to use more ways of transportation besides cars (bus, train, or maybe carpool if they wanna use cars). Also, consumers can use alternate energy as well and cut back on their usage of vehicles. My ideas and i hope you enjoyed them.
Types Of Solar Energy?
One way to categorize solar energy is by how it is converted into useful forms. There are two types in this category: Passive Solar Energy and Active Solar Energy.
Passive Solar Energy doesn't use mechanical means to collect, store, or distribute the solar energy. For example, a thermosyphon (solar water heater) will use natural convection to circulate the water through the system.
Active Solar Energy uses mechanical devices to collect, store, and/or distribute the solar energy. For example, active solar water heaters use pumps to circulate the water or heat-transfer fluid in the system.
A second way to categorize solar energy is by the type of energy the system will produce. There are two types in this category: Solar Electricity and Solar Thermal.
Solar Electricity is produced using photovoltaic panels. PV panels produce an electric current when light hits them. A solar electric system captures this electricity and transfers it to your homes electric system.
Solar Thermal uses solar collectors to generate heat which can be used for solar space heating, interior solar water heating, or solar pool heating.
Why Is Does The Energy Industry Seem Religiously Opposed To Renewable Energy?
It'S Like We Tell Them &Quot;Hey Guess What Guys This Oil Stuff Is Gonna Run Out Sooner Than Later So We Need To Start Doing Something Else&Quot;
So They Say
&Quot;Ok Lets Do Nuke Power!&Quot;
Well That'S Potentially Very Dangerous, Uses Vasts Amounts Of Water, And Produces Waste That We Don'T Know Exactly How To Dispose Of.
Then They Say
&Quot;Ok, Lets Do Clean Coal!&Quot;
Well &Quot;Clean&Quot; Coal Is Still A Finite Resource, It Still Pollutes The Air, Carbon Sequestration Is Still In Its Experimental Phase, And It Will Entail Environmental Destruction As We Begin To Strip Mine For Coal.
How About A Nice Solar, Wind, And Geothermal Energy Program?
Then They Say
&Quot;Scoff! No Way! We'Re Not Doing That!&Quot;
They Don'T Really Have A Good Reason, Other Than The Fact That They Really Really Like Digging Up Fossils And Burning Them. And If They Can'T Dig Up Fossils Then They Have To Be Digging Up Some Radioactive Rock Somewhere.
Isn'T Renewable The Most Common Sense Choice?
I agree with what everyone else has said for the most part, but would like to add that renewable energies are hard to keep centralized and in the hands of only a few people.
Anyone can put up a wind turbine or solar panel, technically, but you have to be a special kind of someone to build and own a coal power plant or oil refinery.
Why Can'T We Just Switch Over To Solar, Hydro And Wind Power Completely?
The Technology Exist, Why Aren'T We Using It? I'M Not An Eco Freak, But I Don'T Want My Scions To Grow Up In A World Where Mother Nature Is On Crack.
Perhaps "we" as a nation can't switch completely because the infrastructure does not yet exist to support our massive need. But you, and your family, certainly can.
Nearly every community in the US now has a choice in their energy supplier (you may not be able to choose who delivers your energy, but they still offer numerous suppliers). And many of those suppliers offer renewable energy programs. You can choose to purchase a portion of your energy from renewable sources, or all of it.
By choosing a new, environmentally friendly supplier you are not only telling the energy companies that people are interested in renewable energy, but you are using your dollars to help support and expand this infrastructure. The more people choose this option, the more widely available and economically feasible it will become. So tell your neighbors to do the same!
For information on green energy suppliers in your area, contact your energy company (but don't be surprised if they aren't helpful, and don't be discouraged if they tell you it's not available to you - it often really is).
An even better resource is www.green-e.org. They can tell you what green energy options are available in your area.
