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 resident to use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioner, cleaning clothing, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, numerous home owners discover that the benefit, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Leading Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably minimize or even eliminate your electrical expenses
Whether you're a property owner, company, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a big portion of your monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.
#2 Earn a fantastic return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power expense cost savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, property electrical energy costs have actually gone up by an average of three percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure versus unforeseeable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a service or property owner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise assists you better projection and handle your costs.
#4 Increase your home worth
Multiple research studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and sell more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups 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 properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial part of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost changes in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market included jobs 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 growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A common residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to 4 heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are essential components of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding services that decide to run responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of consumer getting choices, developing goodwill and enhancing business results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Numerous property owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The utility companies are well-known for their varying and unreliable electrical energy rates. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can determine what does it cost? electrical power will be produced, and most notably, at exactly 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)

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
To Get Into Renewable Energy, What Is The Best Degree For Me To Study?
Is It Better To Study 'Green Energy Technology' At Leicester Uni, Or Study An Engineering Degree, Probably Electrical Eng?
Or If There Are Any Other Courses You Suggest....? And Why?
Or Is There Any Point Wanting To Go Into The Renewable Energy Sector? Will We Ever Actually Turn To Green Energies? Or Will Big Oil/Gas/Nuclear Companies Rule What We Do, And Not Allow Us To Move Forward In A Green Way?
If you REALLY want to help out the renewable energy sector, become a top-notch electrical engineer. Then, revolutionize our capacitor technology.
That is one of main things keeping renewables as a second-tier resource. With wind farms and solar stations especially, our present capacitor capabilities will forbid them from ever becoming anything more than an aid. They will NEVER be able to replace all the coal/oil/gas/nuclear... unless you go out and design us some rockstar capacitors. Inefficient energy storage is the killer.
And those companies don't "rule what we do." C'mon now. Look at what renewables are actually capable of with our present technology. They are not a fantastic cure-alls.
Besides, power companies are diversifying their sources more and more everyday. GE and AREVA are huge energy players, and both are integrating renewables into the designs. Our energy sources will have to play nice with each other until our technology progresses further. It's not all or nothing.
How Do Solar Wind Affect Electrical Circuits? ?
The solar winds are basically a large amount of plasma, or ionized gas, filled with highly-energized protons and electrons. They can be pretty fast at times; a solar event in 2005 launched protons at Earth so energetic that they got here in only about 23 minutes, meaning they were going at roughly one third the speed of light. Most of these, however, take about 24 to 48 hours to reach us. When they reach the Earth they disturb its magnetosphere, causing it to warp and deform. If you've take a Physics class then you know that moving magnetic fields produce electrical current. Even in electronic equipment that isn't plugged in, a strong enough magnetic field will induce a current. Geomagnetic storms are strong enough to disrupt satellites and overload power lines and electronics on Earth through this mechanism. They also cause the Aurora Borealis by exciting various elements in Earth's upper atmosphere.
EDIT: True, only EM radiation effects electronic equipment. But the protons and electrons from solar winds are moving charged particles, meaning they produce a magnetic field as well. So they can also effect equipment on the ISS. Atoms, on the other hand, have nothing to do with this unless they are ionized, because that means they would have a charge and, therefore, a magnetic field.
As for wavelength, the shorter the wavelength the more energy there is. Assuming more energy means a stronger magnetic field then, therefore, there will be more electronic disruption.
Lastly, I do not believe this has anything to do with the Photoelectric Effect.
If Solar Energy Is Really The Way Of The Future, Why Does The Government Need To Subsidize It?
The real problem is the Democrats at all levels think they're technically astute and want to play with other people's money, while kicking back some to themselves, of course.
Why Solar Energy Is Not Used In Africa?
How Could They Develop It?
I'm answering this from Botswana using a small solar panel(150 USD), and satellite internet. The small panel is enough to power 5 energy saving bulbs, laptop, and charge cell phone for 5 or so hours per day (We do have cellphones in Africa). Its used small scale everywhere i work in A. but like the rest of the world very few big projects. Capital outlay,and storing the energy are challenges. The 12 V lead/acid battery I'm using is not a good answer for big projects, not green either
Solar Energy (Thermal And Photo Voltaic) Differences Between The Conditions In North And South Europe?
Solar Energy (Thermal And Photovoltaic) Diferences Between The Conditions In North And South Europe
I Need To Do Some Report About The Differences Between The Conditions For North And South Europe To Use The Solar Energy.
All Data, Like The Energy At Places, The Advantages, Everything Is Welcome.
Send Me Links, Or Other Things.
There are maps to show how much solar energy is available on average per day for the planet. Solar energy return is also dependent on tracking the sun. Tracking can be applied on solar thermal and photovoltaic. Solar thermal is more economical when scaled up in MW. Solar thermal can also provide night time energy using salt ponds for heat storage.
