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 air conditioner, washing clothes, watching TV, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, lots of home owners find that the convenience, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically minimize or even eliminate your electrical bills
Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or nonprofit, electricity expenses can make up a large part of your month-to-month expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your energy expenses and you'll still save a lot of money.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity costs savings, the typical American property owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, domestic electricity rates have increased by an average of three percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and protect versus unforeseeable increases in electricity costs. If you're a company or homeowner with ever-changing money flow, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and handle your expenses.
#4 Increase your home or business value
Multiple studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater home values and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, need for homes equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A common property photovoltaic panel system will remove three to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are very important elements of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that decide to run responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of consumer buying choices, producing goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no money down.
Many house owners choose to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility companies are notorious for their varying and undependable electrical energy rates. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can compute what does it cost? electrical power will be produced, and most importantly, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).
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

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
What, If Anything, Do You Believe The Federal Government Should Do To Control Global Climate Change?
For School We'Re Gonna Do A Debate Over This Question, And I Want To Know If You Guys Can Help Me Answer It
First of all, I'm no scientist and am responding primarily to the political and economic issues climate change present. However, it is debatable insofar as how much effect government policies and mandates can have on climate change; therefore, the first thing that the federal government should do is make sure data gathering and research is funded adequately and ensure that any legitimate hypothesis is studied. I think that the qualified skeptics who have legitimate questions about methodology or the currently understood/predicted consequences of mankind's contribution to climate change should have full access to the data and equal opportunity for funding. It has been said that such has not been the case; regardless of any evidence or lack of same to prove the claim, grant applications and other funding should not be reserved for just one side of the question-if someone has a scientifically sound idea that runs counter to the majority held opinion, it should be studied. Let them step up to the plate.
Second, government should carefully reconsider subsidies. Both oil and coal receive subsidies and other favorable treatment from the government; we shouldn't provide subsidies to the energy industry for fossil fuels and then compare alternative energy sources unfavorably in terms of cost and complain that they wouldn't be able to compete with oil and coal if they (wind and solar, for example) weren't subsidized. Of course, oil is also subsidized by the government through war, but those costs are never calculated into the cost of a barrel of oil vs. the cost of an equivalent amount of energy generated by wind or solar.
Government should also be very careful about mandating quantities such as was done with ethanol in 2007. This upset global markets; speculation drove up commodity and land prices. Some biofuel production is worthwhile for a number of reasons, but we can still see the effect mandating such large numbers had on global markets. This is worthy of an entire discussion on its own merits, bringing in other biofuel materials including things like algae, etc. Basically 'food for fuel' was an emotional argument not entirely based in reality for several reasons, perhaps most because of government policy and the law of unintended consequences-if, indeed, they were unintended.
These are three areas of interest from my particular point of view that may be worth considering and studying further for your debate. While I have opinions on geoengineering, control of emissions, cap and trade and other policies that are being discussed and a basic understanding of these government actions is critical to any debate about what the federal government should do about climate change, I personally am not prepared to make extemporaneous comments that I would be confident you could rely on in a debate, so I will leave that up to others who may be able to be of more assistance.

What Changes Need To Be Made To Decrease Natural Resource Use And Decrease Pollution?
The biggest thing standing in the way of sustainable living these days is money. We have the technology to extract energy from many renewable, non-polluting sources, and to recycle almost anything. The problem is, switching to renewable energy costs time and money; so does recycling. It's much cheaper and more profitable to use fossil fuels; much cheaper and more convenient to produce and buy new goods then to use recycled old ones. What really needs to happen is that somehow, we all either need to decide to recycle and use clean energy despite increased costs to ourselves, or we need to find a way to make it profitable to do so.
There are so many different modes of clean energy. Every building could have solar panels on its roof. In places where the resources exist, wind power, geothermal power, and water power could be used. Nuclear power could be used (Whether this is a better or worse idea for the Earth depends on who you ask. Some say it's great because it can replace so much fossil fuel output and the risk of accident is low, others think the nuclear waste and the safety risk is not worth the benefit). Anyway, there are a lot of means of clean energy out there.
Likewise with recycling. In recent years, there have been a lot of advances in recycling things once thought to be unrecycleable, like plastics. The technology now exists to turn many plastics into other plastics, into gasoline and oil, or even biodegrade them using bacteria. But these technologies aren't being utilized because they're expensive compared to existing methods. It's the same with food; as much food is produced as is profitable, never mind efficiency of use. The United States alone throws away tons of food every day, and no one seems to care.
I'm starting to have some faith that we'll find ways to make recycling and clean energy profitable before it's too late. The economic crash, particularly, has caused some people to rethink the value of production versus recycling. And as technologies advance, recycling and clean energy do become cheaper and easier. Maybe we'll eventually reach a point where recycling and clean energy really are cheaper and easier than conventional methods of production.
I Want To Built A Flat Wound Spring Steal Energy Storage Device.?
Similar To An Old Clock Spring But Larger Tho Store Energy From Photo Cells Avoiding Batteries.
Just grid tie your solar panels with a grid tied inverter and use the grid as your storage device. A spring steel coil would involve too many energy conversions to even remotely be efficient, you would be better off pumping water into an elevated tank or reservoir and drawing the energy back as micro hydro.
A Relative Says That Carbon-14 Dating Of Human Fossils Is Flawed. How Are Fossils Dated?
Science Is The Backbone Of My Beliefs, But My Relative Says That Carbon-14 Dating Is Flawed. What Is The Gist Of The Carbon-14 Dating Technique? I'M Already Familiar With The Nuclear Interactions That Cause Carbon-14 To Be Radioactive. I'M More Interested In The Actual Dating Process And What The 'Thing' Is That Is Dated In Fossil Imprints, For Example.
Carbon dating works by measuring the ratio of Carbon-12 (C12) versus Carbon-14 (C14).
Carbon-14 is produced in the high atmosphere by the interaction of Nitrogen with high energy solar wind (or the neutrons within the solar wind). This C14 interacts same as C12 within the environment, thus when it combines with Oxygen the resulting CO2 is taken up by plants and stored in their tissues. The concentration of C14 is the same in the organism as it is in the atmosphere. When the plant dies the C14 decays at a KNOWN rate back into Nitrogen.
There are many pitfalls associated with Carbon dating and it is NOT a singular use dating model that can date anything you wish. It is only utilized to date ORGANIC material, thus no rocks (including fossils) can be dated using Carbon dating.
There is also the reservoir effect that is essentially the build-up of non-atmospheric Carbon within an animal, this will provide incorrect ages. The reservoir effect is observed and compensated for in any organism that didn't derive its Carbon from the atmosphere, thus Carbon dating is essentially useless in marine animals.
