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 a/c unit, cleaning clothes, enjoying TV, 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 benefits of solar power are considerable, many homeowners discover that the benefit, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically lower or perhaps eliminate your electrical expenses
Whether you're a property owner, service, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can make up a big portion of your month-to-month expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your utility costs and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.
#2 Earn a great return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy expense cost savings, the typical American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical energy costs have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure against unpredictable increases in electricity expenses. If you're a service or homeowner with fluctuating money circulation, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and handle your expenses.
#4 Boost your home worth
Numerous research studies have discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and offer quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, need for properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial element of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate variations in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included 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 development 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 significant factor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a terrific way to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A typical property solar panel system will eliminate 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are necessary parts of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that opt to operate properly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of customer acquiring decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing organisation results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Lots of homeowners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar company 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 Financial investment
The energy companies are notorious for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can determine how much electrical energy will be generated, and most importantly, at what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired 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.

How Many Solar Powered Homes Are In America And Whats Should We Be Seeing In The Near Future For Solar Houses?
Until the cost of solar energy drops to the point where it is economically viable to choose it over power from the grid, solar power will remain unusual. The problem is that for solar power, you need to committ large amounts of money during the building phase. Tens of thousands of additional dollars, and space for expensive batteries that have a limited lifetime. What is truly needed is advances in battery technology. Unfortunately chemistry is fairly well understood, and there don't seem to be any useful candidates for really efficient and cheap batteries.
As for numbers, the definition of solar is vague: there are active, passibe, and combination systems. And the degree to which house can supply power also varies quite a bit.

Solar power is the technology of obtaining usable energy from the light of the Sun. Solar energy has been used in many traditional technologies for centuries, and has come into widespread use where other power supplies are absent, such as in remote locations and in space.
Solar cars achieve their performance by extreme lightness of weight, and very efficient aerodynamics that force compromises that would not be acceptable in a day-to-day transportation device. Any vehicle built for passenger comfort and meeting contemporary safety standards would be much less aerodynamic and much heavier, thus requiring much more power to achieve highway speeds. Therefore, with current and foreseeable technologies it is unlikely a pure solar car will become commercially available. However, solar cars are essentially electric cars with an inbuilt recharging capability, so some of the engineering knowledge and technology developed in competition solar cars may help the development of battery electric vehicles and even hybrid vehicles. The Venturi AstroLab in 2006 was hailed as the world's first commercial electro-solar hybrid car due to be released in January 2008.
The question arises as to whether, if battery electric vehicles become popular, it will be worthwhile fitting them with solar cells to extend their range and allowing recharge while parked anywhere in the sun. However, with present and near-term engineering considerations, it seems that the best place for solar cells will generally be on the roofs of buildings, where they are always exposed to the sky and weight is largely irrelevant, rather than on vehicle roofs.
One practical application for solar powered vehicles is possibly golf buggies, some of which are used relatively little but spend most of their time parked in the sun.
Around What Year Do You Think Fossil Fuels Will Run Out?
When That Happens The World Will Be In Utter Disarray. Unless Of Course We Figure Out How To Change Our Oil-Dependent Lifestyle By Then, Which I Personally Think Won'T Happen.
I don't have any idea. I don't think it's soon. Many will say the earth's oil supplies will peak soon (if they haven't already) probably in the next 15-20 years.
Oddly, since petroleum replaced whale oil as a lubricant, we've been hearing about how the earth's oil supplies will peak soon for nearly a century. In 1914, a report by the US Bureau of Mines estimated only a ten-year supply. Bureau of Mines estimated less than 20 year supplies in 1939 and 1951.
Rumors of the death of oil have been incorrect because every time the price of oil rises, the cost of exploration and extraction becomes economically feasible, bringing more supply into the market, lowering the costs. A popular book of the 1970's, "Limits to Growth" predicted oil, based on the known reserves, to be completely depleted by the 1990s, twenty years ago. But, during the intervening years more reserves have been found, extending the timeline of "peak oil."
What will probably happen is that prices will be such as to make other forms of energy (nuclear, wind, solar, geothermal, hydroelectric) more affordable and we will transition away from petroleum gradually.
