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 a/c, cleaning clothes, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, lots of residents discover that the benefit, unique features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Leading Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably lower and even remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a property owner, service, or nonprofit, electricity expenses can comprise a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your utility expenses and you'll still save a lot of money.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity costs savings, the typical American homeowner settles their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, residential electricity rates have gone up by approximately three percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and protect against unpredictable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a company or house owner with changing money flow, going solar also assists you better forecast and manage your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home value
Several studies have actually discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, demand for properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial element of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate variations in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a great way to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A normal domestic photovoltaic panel system will get rid of 3 to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are essential elements of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding organisations that decide to operate responsibly. Services are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of customer acquiring choices, creating goodwill and improving business results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Many house owners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This means that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility business are well-known for their fluctuating and undependable electrical energy prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can compute just how much electrical energy will be created, and most notably, at exactly what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed 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
What Is The Best Alternative-Energy For Vehicles?
Ok, I Used To Be All Gung-Ho About Ethanol, But I Have Heard Too Many Bad Things About It. For One, Ethanol Takes As Much Energy To Produce As It Releases. Also, It Will Be More Expensive Than Gas, And Pollute Almost The Same Amount.
Biodiesel Seems To Be A Good One, But It May Damage Engines Over Long Periods Of Time, As It Contains Water.
So What Is Going To Be The Actual Alternative Energy That Replaces Gasoline? Heck, I May Even Drive One, As Long As It Meets My Few But Strict Standards:
1. It Has To Cost Less Than, Or At Least No More Than, Gasoline.
2. It Has To Take No More Time To Fill Up Than Gasoline.
3. My Car Can Sacrifice No Performance Due To It.
4. My Car Can Be No More Expensive Due To It.
All-Electric Cars May Work, But The Problem Will Be Having &Quot;Energy-Stations&Quot; Around The Country, And Also Charging A Vehicle Quickly, Like Filling It Up With Fuel. An Overnight Charge Will Be No Good For Someone On A Cross-Country Trip.
So, What Will It Be, And Why?
Electric is the best choice, and I will show you exactly why. Much of the 'anti-EV' talk around here is based on 30-year old electric cars - but technology has not stood still.
First, let's dispense with hydrogen. Fuel cell cars are electric cars (including batteries, because fuel cells can't make enough current for acceleration by themselves.) This means a fuel cell car will always be more expensive, and heavier, than a pure electric car. It will be more expensive to fuel as well, and more polluting (from the energy used to make hydrogen), because hydrogen is less efficient at storing energy than batteries. GM's Sequel fuel cell car is nearly 5,000 pounds, heavier than any pure electric car (twice the weight of the Tesla electric sports car.)
Electric vehicles are extremely efficient, and do not have to be expensive to buy. Take a look at this page about EVs you can find for as little as $5000:
If you want something better than a cheap EV, here's the latest cutting-edge EV:
The ZAP-X outputs 644 horsepower, 155mph top speed, 350-mile range, charges in just 10 minutes, and has a 300,000 mile battery life. If EVs catch on, there will be 10-minute chargers at service stations, so we can take long trips.
Or, with a 350-mile range, just pull into a hotel, and charge it from a wall plug while you sleep. Go more than 350 miles per day by charging it while you eat meals.
I drive my electric car around for only about a penny per mile in electricity. High efficiency means more miles on less energy, which is why it's so cheap to drive on electricity. It's also why EVs make very little pollution, even if powerplants burn dirty fuel. But the best part is that a car-sized solar panel only costs about $1000. Put one up to help with charging, and your cost per mile - and pollution output - drops to almost ZERO. Name me another fuel that can beat that number.
Help On A Persuasive Paragraph?
Okay So I Am Doing 3 Paragraph On 1. Solar Energy 2. Wind Energy And 3. Tide Energy
I Need Help On How To Start Them Please I Cant Do This And I Dont Understand This!! They Are Due Tomorrow And Yeah. So I Have To Write Them Persusivly Nd I Dont Know How To Start Like The Whole Thing
Please And Tahknk You(:
you might know these basic steps already
"A persuasive essay is an essay in which you try to persuade the reader to believe a certain view or have a certain opinion. A persuasive essay usually contains relevant sources and statistics that persuade a reader to believe this viewpoint. ."
so in your paragraph you would need to make a convincing point on why we should or shouldn't use 1. solar energy 2. wind energy and 3. tide energy
Definitions of Solar energy on the Web:
* Solar energy, radiant light and heat from the Sun, has been harnessed by humans since ancient times using a range of ever-evolving technologies. ...
Definitions of Wind energy on the Web:
* Wind power is the conversion of wind energy into a useful form of energy, such as using wind turbines to produce electricity. ...
Definitions of Tidal energy on the Web:
*Tidal energy, sometimes called tidal power, is a form of hydropower that exploits the movement of water caused by tidal currents or the rise and fall in sea levels due to the tides. Although not yet widely used, tidal power has potential for future electricity generation and is more predictable than wind energy and solar power. In Europe, tide mills have been used for over a thousand years, mainly for grinding grains.
would you want your cell phone, ipod, car, home powered by solar energy, wind energy etc.
How Does Using A Hand Dryer Save The Environment?
I See This All The Time When I'M In Public Restrooms. It'S Written On The Electric Hand Dryer On The Wall And It Says That Using The Hand Dryer Over Paper Towels Helps Save The Environment.
Can Someone Explain To Me How Using The Hand Dryer Is More Beneficial Towards The Environment Than Paper Towels?
I Know It Saves Trees But Trees Are Renewable And Can Grow Back. To Use An Electric Dryer Uses Electricity And That Electricity Is Usually Powered By Oil, Which Isn'T Renewable.
1. Trees serve many important functions in the environment, they provide food and habitat for animals, they turn solar energy into chemical energy, they enrich the soil and protect it from erosion.
2. Paper cannot be recycled indefinitely, the fibers break down so new pulp must be added, and not all of it is recycled into the same product (paper towels into paper towels) therefore more trees must be cut to produce paper no matter how much is recycled.
3. Air blowers are becoming more efficient, they now build "air squeegies" which use a line of high pressure air rather than heated air to dry your hands. As they become more efficient the energy used to dry your hands with air is less than the energy used to make, transport and recycle the paper towels (especially transport, transporting electrons to power a blower is much more efficient than transporting tons of paper).
4. Air dryers also do not use harsh chemicals, making / recycling paper does.
Both using less energy AND using fewer trees helps the environment.
Why Should We Not Use Nuclear Energy?
Is It Dangerous?
Are Their Other Good Alternatives?
There are alternatives, but you need to spend a lot in order to get the same
level of energy back. So there are issues of sustainability. Nuclear
is an efficient way of producing energy albeit one that needs high levels
of safety. The waste is also an issue. The world currently has an
energy problem. How do we produce enough, with dwindling resources
for expanding populations and economies. Sustainable technologies are
being developed such as wind, solar and water that generate electricity but
is it going to be enough? This is why the building of nuclear power stations
is back on the agenda in terms of power generation. It's a sustainable, limitless
source of energy. However, Chernobyl, the Russian nuclear disaster in 1986, is a
warning that when things go wrong, the results can be catastrophic.
Why Is It Important To Conserve Energy?
I Am Doing A Project At School And I Am A Year 6 And I Dont Understand What It Means ! Please Help ? ::
It's a pretty simple concept really. Conserving energy was created when people realized that we had limited energy resources such as coal. Energy conservation is to conserve the energy so we will have it in the future, which is really a sort of short term plan because even while conserving, we will eventually run out.
Donserving energy on a h
Household basis includes turning off lights when leaving a room, carpooling to use fewer cars, etc.
On a wider basis, it includes changing products to use less energy, altering the energy used to fly planes, drive cars. Renewable energy is energy that is unlimited, such as solar or wind (not water!)
Conserving is important, it's the first step in changing the world to make it more environmentally friendly and although it's not a permanent solution, gives us time to find a plan that IS! :)
