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 everyday life: running your air conditioning system, cleaning clothes, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, numerous home owners discover that the benefit, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically reduce or perhaps eliminate your electrical bills
Whether you're a house owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can make up a big portion of your month-to-month expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your utility expenses and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power bill cost savings, the average American house owner settles their photovoltaic 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 benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical power rates have actually increased by approximately 3 percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're an organisation or house owner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and handle your costs.
#4 Boost your house value
Several research studies have discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater home values and sell more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, need for homes geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key component of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate changes in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added tasks 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. Since solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A typical residential solar panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are very important elements of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that opt to operate responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of customer purchasing decisions, developing goodwill and improving company results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Lots of homeowners opt to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility companies are well-known for their changing and unreliable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can determine what does it cost? electrical power will be created, and most notably, at what price, 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
Please Answer This Survey Related To Solar Energy! Thank You!?
A. Do You Think We Should Make Solar Energy Our Main Source Of Energy In The Future?
B. Which Alternative Source Of Energy Do You Think Is The Best? (Examples: Nuclear Fission, Nuclear Fusion, Geothermal, Tide, Hydroelectric, Solar, Wind, Hydrogen, And Biomass)
Solar energy is good, but I think our best option is not to rely on just one form of energy generation, but on various sources. Solar may work good in most places, but it's best suited for places like Arizona or California, whereas wind power might be better in the midwest or other windy areas. Geothermal I think is a great source of power that's often overlooked. It can provide base load power to utilities, which means it can produce power 24/7, unlike solar or wind. Nuclear is good so long as the waste is safely disposed of, and that can be very difficult to get the utilities to pay for that. Hydroelectric, at least in the US, has mostly been used up. We've dammed up pretty much every river that we could, and while we can keep using it, we can't really create more power from hydroelectric sources. Hydrogen and boimass (if you're referring to ethanol) aren't really ready to be widely adopted yet, the technology needs more work for them to become more cost competitive with other sources of power.
Where Does The Energy Come From To Power Milankovitch Cycles?
Venus, Jupiter & Mars are also big heavy objects & close enough to Earth to cause noticeable modulations to it's orbit.
My impression was that Jupiter was Earths predominate eccentricity modulator - but regardless the principal is this... If Earth were alone in the Solar System the eccentricity of it's orbit would not change - the variations responsible for the Milankovitch cycles come from gravitational influence of the other orbiting planets.
The 'energy' in question is the kinetic energy of the orbiting planets.
Not much energy gets 'consumed' though, it's more like it gets kicked back & forth via gravity.
So the process isn't exact ally 'powered' any more than any orbit is.
It takes a lot of energy to put something in orbit, but not much to keep it there.
"Bobble & Sudden" aren't really accurate terms here. What's happening is a very slow variations as to how elliptical Earths orbit is, & how tilted it is, and where the Orbital Summer is compared to Axial Summer. Right now the Orbital Summer is mild & in the middle of our Winter BUT when it intensifies & and slides into our Summer THAT will make for some pretty dramatic weather.
Earth's orbit varies in HOW elliptical it is (eccentricity) over a 100,000 year cycle from virtually circular to about 3 times its current eccentricity. The current value results in about 6.8% more solar power (isolation) striking the Earth at perihelion than aphelion.
So Earth's eccentricity does in fact generate a Summer of sorts. Let's call this the E-Summer.
However what we normally call Summer is based on Earth being tilted by 23.5 degrees.
Let's call this T-Summer.
Basically it means when the Northern Hemisphere is tipped toward the Sun, we Northerners have more direct light AND longer days - which of course means the Southerners are having shorter colder days, aka a T-Winter.
Hmmmm... but wait. The E-Summer happens to the whole planet once a year, whereas the T-Summer happens on opposite sides of the planet on opposite sides of the year, THAT means the E-Summer cannot possibly coincide with both T-Summers.
And it doesn't. It turns out that the middle of the E-Summer (perihelion) is about two weeks after the middle of the North T-Winter. In other words the Northerners have warmer winters than Southerners.
Well for now anyway.... because turns out the E-year (anomalistic) is about 25 minutes longer than the T-year (calendar year). Which means Earths perihelion is slowly moving backwards through the calendar. So 10,500 years from now the Sothern Hemisphere will have the warmer winters.
Of course HOW MUCH warmer the winters are depends on which way the Eccentricity value has moved. If it goes to zero, then the E-Summer goes away. When it's 3 times the present value, it's a LOT warmer because the E-Season insolence varies by 23%, rather than today's modest 6.8%.
Then add to that the fact that Earth's tilt is also oscillating about 4 degrees every 41, 000 years, creating greater & smaller T-Season swings.
Collectively these are called Milankovitch cycles and more than a few Climatologists believe they explain Earths long term Global Temperature cycles.
So don't let anyone tell you the E-Summers don't matter. 6.8% is NOT insignificant. That said though they affect the WHOLE globe & only shift 1 day every 58 years - so the seasons we NOTICE are Tilt driven.
Now beyond this there is also a theory that says Cosmic Ray variance from our Suns orbital transits through the Galactic arms creates long periods of intense cloud formation.
(But this is not part of the Milankovitch cycles)
Isolation variance +-3.4%

When Is Solar Energy Expected To Be Easily Accessible To The General Public?
Thank U!! It'S For A Project And I Have No Clue What It Means :]]]] I Need Help And I Would Love It If U Helped!! Thank U!!! Please Answer!! Thank U!!
whenever the government decides it's a good time to offer more than just tax incentives for the initial installment of renewable energy devices.
Our fossil fuels are not infinite; solar power is. It's a theory that in about 40-50 years, when we have "used up" our main energy sources, solar energy will become readily available to everyone (with a large back yard). You need "x" amount of area to cultivate the sun. Solar power is also weather dependent, which is probably another reason why people don't feel like investing.
When Did Wind Energy Become Really Popular?
I Have Searched Online And I Really Can'T Find Much. I Know It Was Used In The Early 20Th Century But I'M Curious As To When Society Really Became Interested In It And Started Using It To Power Cities. (I Know They Use It A Lot In Europe).
Thanks Any Help Is Appreciated. I'M Working On An Essay, I'M Not Asking You To Do My Home Work But I Can'T Find This & I Was Hoping Someone Might Be A Little More Educated In This Area? Thanks:)
In the 1980s in Germany, when they started to build windfarms. Now 20% of all electricity in Germany is from windfarms and 10% is solar power.
Where Does Most Of The Energy Used On Earth Come From?
I Guessed The Sun But I Really Dont Know...Plz Answer! Thanks!!! :D
Most energy used on Earth came from the sun. Fossil fuels are energy from the sun millions of years ago and fossil fuels are our primary energy source. Solar power comes from the sun, wind power indirectly comes from the sun, due to the uneven heating of the Earth...
