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 daily life: running your ac system, washing clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, 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 benefits of solar power are considerable, many home owners find that the benefit, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably minimize and even remove your electric costs
Whether you're a house owner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can make up a big portion of your regular monthly expenditures. With a solar 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 energy expenses and you'll still save a great deal of money.
#2 Make a great return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power bill savings, the average American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, residential electrical power costs have gone up by an average of three percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unpredictable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a service or house owner with ever-changing capital, going solar also helps you better forecast and handle your expenses.
#4 Increase your home worth
Multiple studies have found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and sell more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key part of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, 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 jobs in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a great way to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A normal property solar panel system will remove 3 to four 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 components of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that opt to run responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of customer getting decisions, developing goodwill and improving organisation results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Many house owners choose to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility companies are infamous for their changing and unreliable electricity prices. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can determine what does it cost? electrical energy will be produced, and most notably, at what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty 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
Is There Anything Bad About Solar Energy... Read?
I Am Doing A Project On Solar Energy In School And I Can'T Find Anything Bad About It Except... It Cost A Lot, Takes A Lot Of Room, Sun May Not Always Be Out. Help I Need A Little More If Possible.
I used to take 20-25 years to pay off the loans for solar panel installations yet the panels themselves needed to be replaced every 20 years. To recoup the cost of the panels, you needed to be able to save enough on electricity during those 20-25 years to cover the cost of the panels, installation, and the loan interest. Meanwhile, repairing damaged panels could cost an arm and a leg if you could find the technically correct model some years later. Of course, the home insurance industry balked at insuring the panels and with time, a house that used solar panels whether they were roof installed or not. Meanwhile, building permits for solar panel installations tend to range from more expensive to very expensive in many communities while others, like many home owner's associations, don't allow them at all.
Back to more current times....A lot of folks claim that solar panels as they exist and are installed today are very inefficient in delivering power to your electrical appliances. You would have to look this up on the internet. Another group of folks claim that the general, middle class, home owner requires more electricity than a typical solar system can provide them due to the ways and amounts of electricity they use. These folks believe that we can find as much if not more energy and ecological savings through personal energy conservation. There are the pragmatists who point out that the typical apartment building, office building, and certainly industrial/ manufacturing complex in no way owns enough square footage to be able to generate the required amount of energy for the uses of electricity on their space of ground.
The sun not always being out is a factor in the efficiency of solar power. It points to the need for storage capability, distribution on the grid, a need to continue the use of grid power during low sun times, and/or reduced use during low sun times like at night and in the winter. Further, the amount of sunlight with respect to time of day, day to day, and any other type of a schedule is not overly predictable. Our other forms of energy generation are not near as flexible which means it becomes difficult to off set the low solar energy generation times as well as the high solar energy generation times. Outside of individual installations solar is somewhat difficult to work without waste out on the grid too.
As a full energy source replacement it still has come problems to over come. It probably has a bigger potential as a supplemental energy source for non-essential systems. For example, it works well for path lighting in some locations in our area but, I wouldn't rely on it for security lighting; it might work as a back up system of sorts. I know someone who uses it for their summer patio, sound system power with great success as long as it is not over cast or raining; prior to their small solar panel, they did not have a patio sound system. In a number of the residential, commercial, and high density dwellings using solar power panels, many still use them to power only sub-systems or use the grid to provide seamless power at the plug as needed.
How Does A Cell Relate To A House?
Please Help Me Its For My Project.&I Really Need To Pass
Garden Fence-Cell Wall
Nucleus-Fuse Box/Living Room ??
First, I love biology. To answer you question:
The cell wall is like the garden fence because it keeps unwanted molecules out.
The nucleus is the fuse box/living room because it holds all the important information and many processes occur here.
The lysosome is the trashcan because all lysed cells, or unwanted molecules are sent here
The cell membrane is like a wall because it partitions inside the cell from outside the cell, and also partitions cell organelles. It decides what it wants to let in and what it doesnt.
Mitochodria is like a furnace because this is where cell energy is produced - i guess its because heat energy is produced in a furnace - but i think a generator is more appropriate
Vacoule has many functions (wiki it) - sometimes it keeps waste and sometimes it maintains the pressure in the cell, or even stores water - so bathroom i guess is appropriate
Golgi apparatus i would say is the storage room because it packages proteins before they are sent to where they are needed.
Chloroplast are used to harness light energy - if you had the solar panel thing in your house, that's what they'd be
nucleolus is present within nucleus and is useful for biochemical processes (DNA stuff) so I would say it is the switch or the lights. Because the living room cannot do without it - not so sure about this one
What Size Solar Panel Would I Need?
I Want To Buy A Solar Panel Kit To Run My Central Ac Unit. It Is A 3 Ton Unit. Can I Do This? The Electric Rates In The Chicago Area Are Skyrocketing And I Can'T Keep Paying 350 Dollar Electric Bills During The Spring And Summer Months
Solar in Chicago is not much help, you would need at least 3kwh for whatever size unit you have, (3 tons is meaningless in this context!) You would not get enough sun even in the summer to operate for more thn 6 hours a day. For Chicago you probably need a wind generator, or go for a heat pump.

How Do You Attach Solar Panels To A Remote Control Car?
I Want To Make A Couple Of My Remote Controls Car Run On Solar Panels But Have No Idea On How To Attach Them Or If Its Possible.
You would have to attach a very impressive array of panels to power even a small remote control car in the best of conditions.
The best you could hope for a a minute trickle charging of a battery pack in which case you would have to hook enough panels in parallel to get the right voltage and connect it in parallel with the battery, still a fairly large array of panels would be built.
