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 ac system, washing clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, lots of residents discover that the convenience, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Leading Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically lower and even remove your electrical expenses
Whether you're a homeowner, service, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can comprise a large portion of your regular monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your energy bills and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the finest ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity bill savings, the average American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus increasing energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy rates. In the previous ten years, domestic electricity rates have actually gone up by an average of three percent every year. By buying 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 house owner with changing capital, going solar also helps you much better projection and manage your costs.
#4 Increase your property value
Several research studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property worths and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, demand 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 key element of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent way to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A typical property photovoltaic panel system will remove three to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are necessary parts of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding organisations that pick to operate properly. Organisations are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of customer acquiring decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.
#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 loan down.
Numerous house owners choose to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This means that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
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 companies are notorious for their fluctuating and unreliable electricity prices. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and basic mathematics, we can compute what does it cost? electricity will be generated, and most significantly, at what price, 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
Solar Hot Water Vs Tankless (Instant) Hot Water?
Which System Is Most Efficient And Economical?
Solar, depending on where you live, will typically augment your hot water supply and reduce the energy needed to supply hot water. It does take labor and materials to install, and it does eventually wear out, so there is a cost calculation to make.
A tankless water heater - which will not get water to the faucet any quicker than a tank water heater - is more efficient than a tank. But tankless water heater are expensive to install, which results in another cost calculation. Another consideration (to throw off all the above-mentioned cost calculations) is that a tankless water heater will outlast a tank, maybe by as much as twice.
I think, but cannot say with certainty, that solar has a better chance of paying for itself. A lot depends on where you live - the amount of sun you get and local labor and energy prices. There may also be local, state or federal rebates available.
There's some time & effort involved in figuring it out. The good news is that it's not impossible to figure out. Get some prices on installing a tankless water heater. The plumbers that install tankless water heaters in your area should be aware of any rebates. Then talk to solar contractors. Many will have software that can do the calcs for your location (they may lean towards the optimistic side of things). Then put it all together. You may wind up with both. Or neither.
Question On Relativism Vs Natural Law.. I Need Feedback From Proponents From These Two, As Well As Other Views?
My Ethics Teacher's Lesson On "Relativism Vs Natural Law" Was Not Only One-Sided(He Only Presented Arguements For Natural Law, And Arguements Against Relativsm), It Seems Like A False Dilemma To Present These To As The Only Viewpoints. What Are Other Philosophies On The Subject Of Ethics?
Firstly, the argument is somewhat specious. "Natural law" consists of those facts about the universe that are determinable by observation: the origin of the solar system, the laws of momentum and energy conservation and the like. The only thing that is "relativistic" about any of these is Einstein's theories. "Relativism" is usually used to define a source of moral codes; these cannot be determined from scientific data, so must be developed by societies based on experience. Which, of course, they are; moral codes derive from evolution, which applies to societies as well as to species: a society which adheres to a sound moral code will survive preferably to one that does no. Which means, in a sense, that all moral codes are relative. In particular, it should be absolutely clear that there is no such thing as an absolute morality, and Kant's (and subsequently, C S Lewis's) claims to the contrary are simply wrong.
Do We Get More Solar Or Thermal Energy From The Sun?
'Solar' Energy, Includes All Energy Emitted From The Sun, Even Thermal And Light. Yet I Suspect Most Of The Thermal Energy We Receive Is As The Result Of Insolation (No, I Didn'T Spell That Wrong. I Do Mean Insolation) Of Electromagnetic Radiation. So Do We Get More Electromagnetic Energy? Or More Raw Thermal Energy?
Thermal energy is from the absorption of electromagnetic radiation by surfaces, indeed thermal radiation is infrared light. I think you've misunderstood the meaning of the word insolation as it's merely all the energy a surface is exposed to. The only way to increase the energy absorbed would be to increase the surface area of direct energy being absorbed. Otherwise it's all a matter of how efficiently you access that energy. For example, an evacuated vacuum thermal power collector puts the solar collector in a vacuum so once it has absorbed the electromagnetic energy as heat, the heat can not escape through conduction or convection and any radiant heat is reflected by the glass shell holding the vacuum. Problem with EVT's are that they get broken by hail storms, etc. and they also leak so you have to replace them regularly. Photovoltaic panels only use one frequency of light because the solar cells are made of silicon which responds to only one frequency, more efficient solar cells can be made by combining different materials and also by finding materials that will absorb other frequencies and re-emit them in the frequencies that silicon likes.
The Energy Used To Charge The Batteries Of Electric Cars Come From?
A. Druids B. Power Plants ( Coal, Nuclear, Oil, Etc) C. They Don'T Need To Be Charged
The source of the power depends on where you live. In California, hydro+renewables create about 32%, nuclear is about 24% and natural gas is about 20%. Coal and other fossil fuels account for only about 2%.
The energy comes from PG&E power plants rather than smaller individual less efficient motors. The energy sources are already much cleaner than gasoline, and moving towards even cleaner and PG&E increases it's collection of solar power. In the future, many owners of electric cars will charge them primarily via solar panels on their own garage.
How Much Energy Does It Take To Boil Water?
(For School) I'M Designing A Tea Urn, Or Something Along Those Lines. I Need To Figure Out How Much Energy It Needs Because I'M Making It Solar Powered
No Idea What I'M Doing =X
This would depend on the water temperature you start with.
A BTU is defined as the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one pound of liquid water by one degree from 60° to 61°Fahrenheit at a constant pressure of one atmosphere.
1 watt is approximately 3.413 BTU/h
