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 house owners to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioner, washing clothes, seeing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing 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 substantial, many property owners discover that the benefit, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly lower and even remove your electrical expenses
Whether you're a homeowner, service, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can comprise a big part of your regular monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility costs and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs savings, the typical American property owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, residential electricity rates have gone up by approximately three percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and secure against unforeseeable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're an organisation or homeowner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and manage your expenditures.
#4 Boost your house worth
Multiple research studies have found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need for properties geared up 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 component of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price changes in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is an excellent way to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A common residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are necessary elements of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that opt to operate responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of consumer purchasing decisions, developing goodwill and improving service outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Lots of house owners choose to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
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 notorious for their changing and unreliable electrical energy prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can determine what does it cost? electricity will be produced, and most significantly, 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
How Is Solar Energy Used?
I Am Writing An Essay For Science And I Need Help. How Is Solar Energy Used In Radiation, Convection, And Conduction? Also Is It Bad For The Environment? Please Answer. Thanks :)
Solar energy can be used for day lighting, cooking, heating water, disinfection, distillation, making saline water potable and high temperature process heating. It is used in residential, commercial, industrial and remote applications purpose.
Help!!!!Solar Energy Slogan?
I Have A Project In Science Where I Am Representing A Company That Is Selling Solar Energy. I Needy S Catchy Slogan For My Company! Please
Solar - We really can't afford it!
I recently did a study of solar in "The Sunshine State" (Florida) where I live. I took into consideration (1) a 30% rebate from the federal government, (2) state and local sales and property tax exemption.
Even with the government (taxpayers across the country) subsidizing me the solar energy collection system would have to run at peak efficiency for over 25 years with no repairs and no maintenance just to break even compared to projected fossil and nuclear power costs.
The FPL Group is building a CSP plant here in Florida (they already operate 7 of the 9 "working" plants in California). The panels are glass. The collector tubes are glass. Who will pay to replace all this glass after the first hail storm or hurricane?
Solar is not financially viable even in the southwest where solar radiance is twice the rest of the country and humidity is super low. The solar plant FPL will build in Florida is the same design that the bankrupt (1991) company Luz patented in the 1980s.
Current estimates say solar power will be competitive with coal and gas in ten years. In the 1980s the estimate was also 10 years. It's like the sign in the bar that reads "Free beer tomorrow!"
How Solar Energy Is Produced And How It Cover ?
Solar energy is energy that comes from the sun - the sun fuses hydrogen to helium to create that energy.
Life on Earth absorbs that energy.
No idea what you mean by "how it cover" - sunlight shines over the entire Earth.
Are There Any Advantages To Upgrading The Electric Panel For My House?
I Am Having Solar Panels Installed For My 50+ Year Old House. The Site Evaluation People Came By And Thought They Could Use My Existing Electric Panel, But They Are Not Completely Sure. I Haven'T Had Many Problems With It. When I Had A Pool Heater Installed, The People Made A Separate Circuit Breaker Near The Heater Rather Than The Electric Panel. But Otherwise, It Hasn'T Been An Issue.
So My Question Is Whether I Should Take This Opportunity To Upgrade The Electric Panel In Case Of Future Need, Or Wait Till It No Longer Works, And Upgrade Then. I Am Not An Electrician, So I Don'T Know Why I Would Need To Upgrade The Electric Panel If The Solar Installation Guys Say What I Have Is Old But Is Good Enough For Their Purposes. Thanks.
Hoo boy tough call. A new panel isn't cheap. So if the existing will suffice you might do well to leave it alone. Unless...
Open the cover and look at the label. If it says FP&E, Replace it! FP&E breakers are a known fire hazard. Do an internet search and you'll see what I mean.
Also, if you chose to replace it I strongly suggest 5 estimates. That way you can ignore the lowest as well as the highest. Then pick from the middle based on reputation. Make them break their estimate down by price per part and the labor separate.
Sq D is a very good brand. But you want to specify a copper buss bar, not aluminum or plated.
Where Does The Energy Go?
The United States Economy Is 41% Efficient. Where Does The Other 59% Of The Energy That Is Fed Onto The Economy Go?
I don't think your number there really means anything credible. But any form of energy is largely wasted in its distribution or use due to the laws of physics and limitations in technology.
Generally there are ways to improve efficiency, but they are expensive. For example, most electricity that is generated in a power plant is lost to resistance as it travels along the cables to homes and businesses. The only way to avoid that would be to have power plants on every block, which is unrealistic. Or for everyone to use solar panels, which is extraordinarily expensive. Right now the best solution is centralized power plants, and just accept the losses.
Society tends to work its way to the solution that gives the best combination of affordability and efficiency.
