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 property owner to use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothing, enjoying TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, lots of property owners discover that the benefit, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly reduce and even remove your electrical bills
Whether you're a homeowner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can comprise a big portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility bills and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.
#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy costs savings, the average American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, domestic electrical energy rates have actually increased by an average of 3 percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and safeguard against unforeseeable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're an organisation or house owner with changing capital, going solar also helps you much better projection and manage your expenses.
#4 Boost your home or business value
Multiple studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater property worths and offer more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties equipped with solar 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 element of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost fluctuations in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a great method to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A common residential solar panel system will get rid of three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are very important components of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding services that decide to operate responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of customer getting decisions, producing goodwill and improving service results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no money down.
Many homeowners decide to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This means that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar company for electrical energy-- 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 notorious for their changing and unreliable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can calculate how much electrical power will be produced, and most notably, at what cost, for at least 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 To Build A Model Of A Passive Solar Heating House?
For Science Class Ww Have To Build A Passive Solar Heating Model House And It Must Also Have Good Insulation. I Dont Understand How U Can Make The House Run On Solar Energy. My Science Teacher Is Givin 20 Bucks To The Best Model. I Can Use Any Materials, Besides Things Like Solar Panels Or Course. How Should I Start? Ill Work On The Scaling Later...
One thing you can do is mass thermal heating. That would be having a southern exposure to the sun with a lot of windows. You would tile the floor and a solid wall like stone or block for the sun to warm.
How Is Solar Energy Created?
The answers reflect the fact that the question is rather broad.
The prime source of solar energy is the fusion reaction in the sun.
If by "created" you mean converted to to a more usable form:
There are two main methods that people use to convert solar radiation to other forms of energy. One is the photovoltaic effect which is used to generate electricity directly. The other is the thermal method detailed by Kathryn L, which in its simplest form is residential solar heating panels (or black-painted barrels, even), but also can use more complex apparatus such as focusing sunlight to a concentrated beam to boil a liquid, producing mechanical power which may be used to generate electric power.
Additionally there are numerous methods nature uses, including conversion via heat to wind and hydropower, and from wind to waves, etc.; and conversion via photosynthesis to chemical energy. (Note waves are distinct from tides, which do not derive from solar radiation.)

Suggestions For A Dyi Solar Home Heat?
Would Like To Be Able To Use Solar Power To Help Heat Our House. Any Suggestions On How To Do This?
There are many books on the subject.
There is google search and youtube.
By solar power do you mean electrical power? That is not an efficient way to heat because heat always requires a lot of juice. Look into passive solar. There is a lot to that subject. Such as planting deciduous trees on the South and West side. In summer leaves block the sun from heating up your exterior walls, in winter the leaves fall off, allowing the sun to warm them.
There are many ways of using the earth to regulate the temperature because 6' down it is always a constant 54 degrees. People run a pipe underground, use solar panels to charge batteries to run a fan to pump air through the pipes and into the house.
You can line up black-painted water barrels to soak up the sun and run that warm water through radiators inside the house.
Lots of things you can do.
How Should Individuals Promote Solar Energy?
I Would Like To Run All The Power In My House With Solar Energy. How Would I Go About Doing That?
First, be prepared to spend more money for the solar system than you will recover in reduced utility bills. My combined gas and electric bill averaged about $1,400 a year. I had a 6kw photovoltaic system put in. After rebates it cost me about $40,000. I now have an annual utility bill of $170. So I am recovering my investment at about $1,230 per year. My homeowners insurance went up too, so the savings is several hundred dollars less. If I had invested the $40,000 at 5% interest, it would bring back $2,000 per year!
I do hope to recover a bit more when I sell the house, but will never know how much it added to the selling price.
Secondly, I hope you can install a system. It is of tremendous benefit to the environment.
Before you spend any money on equipment or installation, learn all you can. See if any of the solar distributors in your area hold classes or seminars on the subject. Also your educational institutions. Work the internet. Keep records of what you learn. Talk to folks who have solar systems.
One thing most people don't consider is the roof. I had mine installed over the garage and an overhang. I didn't want a bunch of penetrations of the roof over the attic. A leak over the garage is a nuisance. Over the attic it is a nightmare. Sure enough I have had one small leak. Also if the existing roof will be in need of replacement soon, it might be bes to wait and do both at once. Removal of the solar system and putting it back will add considerably to the roofing cost.
