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 utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c, washing clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are substantial, lots of property owners discover that the convenience, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically lower or even eliminate your electric bills
Whether you're a homeowner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can make up a big part of your month-to-month expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your energy expenses and you'll still save a great deal of cash.
#2 Make an excellent return on your investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity expense cost savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against increasing energy expenses
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, property electricity costs have increased by approximately three percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and secure against unforeseeable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a company or property owner with rising and falling money circulation, going solar also helps you better projection and manage your expenditures.
#4 Increase your house value
Numerous studies have discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater home worths and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, demand for homes geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key part of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price changes in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to minimize 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 get rid of 3 to 4 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are very important parts of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that decide to run responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are an effective motorist of customer acquiring choices, developing goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Many homeowners opt to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar provider for electricity-- 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 companies are notorious for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and basic mathematics, we can compute just how much electrical energy will be generated, and most significantly, at what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty 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.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why Are Rain And Solar Energy Important Inputs Into A Woodland Ecosystem?
Generally rain and solar energy (sunlight) are the only inputs to a woodland ecosystem. They support the growth of the plants and trees which in turn support all the other life (e.g. bacteria, worms, nematodes, fungi, insects, animals). These other life forms also use rain and sunlight directly. Trees and plants also use nutrients in the soil to help in their growth but these nutrients are recycled when the plant or tree reached old age and dies.
Woodland ecosystems are so efficient at converting rain and sunlight into growth that it is often possible to harvest reasonable amounts of wood from such systems in a sustainable manner. Hunting can also provide sustainable food. But care is needed to avoid over-exploitation and damage to sustainability.

What Are The Alternate Energy Sources And Why Should We Use Them?
I Need To Know What The Alternate Energy Sources Are And The Good And Bad Points.....
alternative energy sources:
Something related with the ocean and the waves
No bad effects on environment unlike the others
What Is Avg Energy Consumption In A Green Home?
Answers Should Obviously Vary. And What Is The Average Cost Of Energy (Per Month Or Per Year) In A Green Home. I'M Doing Some Research For A Project That'S Going To Take Place Thank You
Hi Koko. Your answers will obviously vary a great deal, and not just because homes do, but your definition of a green home will not be the same as other peoples.
Our home has a 1.4 kw solar array and a 1kw wind turbine for electricity. We heat primarily with wood, but have solar passive heat and a propane furnace. Our hot water comes partially from a solar preheater, and the rest from a propane tankless water heater. On average, our electric bill is about $9 USD per month, and we use around $200 of propane per year for heating, cooking and hot water. I would say generally our solar, wind and wood heating make up about 80% of our homes entire energy usage, and the rest comes from the utility or fuel company in our area. Good luck in your research, and take care, Rudydoo
Why Is Solar Energy Considered To Be Renewable Energy?
Because the sun is going to come up tomorrow just like it did yesterday.
Where Does The Energy That Powers Electrical Appliances Come From?
Can Someone Tell Me?
Add natural gas and oil to the first answer. A very small amount is made from trash/garbage recycling. Visit California to see wind power and solar power in action producing electrical power.
