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, cleaning clothes, enjoying TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are considerable, lots of property owners discover that the benefit, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically lower or even eliminate your electrical costs
Whether you're a house owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can comprise a large portion of your month-to-month expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your utility expenses and you'll still save a great deal of loan.
#2 Make a terrific return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity expense cost savings, the average American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the previous ten years, property electrical energy rates have actually gone up by an average of three percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard against unpredictable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're an organisation or house owner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and handle your expenditures.
#4 Boost your house worth
Multiple studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater property values and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, demand for properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial part of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate variations in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a great method to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A common residential solar panel system will remove 3 to four loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are very important parts of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that decide to operate properly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of consumer buying choices, creating goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Many house owners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy 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 utility business are well-known for their fluctuating and undependable electrical energy prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can calculate what does it cost? electricity will be generated, and most notably, at exactly what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions
Information About Solar Energy?
Hey Guys, I Really Need Help Getting Information About Solar Energy. Can You Guys Tell Me How It Works And Why Is It Used For?
The internet can be a marvelous resource. Give it a whirl.
At the _very least_ type the words
Entering that term into <<any>> internet search engine will give you tons of information.
You question is _so_ general, that someone could type in 10 pages worth of an answer - all of which would end up not being anything you wanted.
You are better off doing this investigation and knowledge gathering yourself.
Why Is Solar Energy Better Than Fossil Fuel?
There are multiple reasons...
1) Less impact. Solar energy comes from (here's the shocker...jk) the Sun! You see our sun is a renewable resource, therefore it won't run out. Or at least not in the next three billion years :) Fossil fuels, however, are in a limited supply and take millions of years of heat and pressure to form. You tell me, which one will run out first?
2) CO2 Emmisions. CO2, or carbon dioxide, is released into the atmoshpherre when fossil fuels are burned. So are other green house gases (methane, nitrogen, etc.) that trap in heat and sunlight, forming global warming. Now, it's totally normal to have CO2 in the air, but humans have put in way to much. This make the whole delicate balance of nature totally off. This takes credit for unusual weather, higher ocean levels, mass extinction, melting ice caps/glaciers, and more.
What Type Of Energy In Nevada?
What Type Of Energy (If Nevada Were To Build A New Plant) Would Be Best Suited For Nevada, And Why? The Choice Is Between Solar Power And Geothermal.
Solar will be best due to all the sunshine the state gets
There is some geothermal potential, (as there are some hot sprngs in the state) but not much. I am unaware of any active volcanoes there
Why Is Oil Drilling So Bad For The Environment?
I Know Nothing About Oil Drilling, But With Modern Technology, Why Does This Have To Equate To Environmental Rape? Can't They Be Careful? Are There Spills? Do You Have To Level Mountains To Begin Drilling? I Thought We Already Brought All Kinds Of Oil Here Through The Alaskan Pipeline, Is This Something New? I'm Non Partisan, Just Trying To Figure Out How Drilling Equals Disaster.
That is a good question. There is no quick answer. I will not bore you with a three page essay, or a three year study of "off shore oil spills". A major problem is oil corporations that exist for bottom line this quarter profits don't reinvest in routine maitenence. West Texas has frequent refinery fires costing lives, and the refineries process crude oil that was drilled. I am sure there are many oil spill related problems we don't hear about because Britney Kfed took the spotlight in the Giganitcorp dog and pony show that is media.
For me the problem is nations that are hostile to western democracy and things like a woman's rights to drive or not have to wear a head to toe bed sheet in public have the most oil reserves on the planet and the solution is alternative fuels. I used to be more liberal about the middle east but though I think there are many nice people trying to be good who profess Islam as a faith of "peace", among them are too many who would force it down our throats and on examination the actual holy books of this faith that rules Oil Rich countries are clearly hostile to all other faiths and systems of law.
Until MIT has found a way to harness solar energy for everyday use, and that day is coming, we must use less oil. Use of fossil fuels increases carbon emissions and that leads to fun things like global warming, increased storms and climate change. If Americans reduce carbon emissions by 2% a year we will reduce them by 80% in the year 2050. Change in our lifetime.
How? Drive less, drive the speed limit, don't tailgate as rapid braking and accelerating eats gas, check tirepressure and use cruise control. I can get 34mpg in my 1990 Cadilac on the Highway and I bike in town or walk if it's less than 5 blocks.
Plastics are petroleum based too, how many water bottles do we throw away because there is not a convienient recycling program nearby? My solution is a 10cent deposit on all individual size beverage containers. But I said no three page answer, so adieu.

In order to figure out how much "load" your house is going to need, you'll need to add up all the projected electrical use that your future home will consume. You'll need to add up things like the fridge, washer, dryer, dishwasher, water heater (could be solar), TV, computer(s), all other misc electronic stuff will really suck up the power. Don't forget about the lights-think LED or compact flourescent. Also-think about adding more insulation than that which is required by your local building codes. A high-effeciency HVAC system will also help curb the electrical usage.
