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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, washing clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while lowering 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 substantial, many homeowners find that the benefit, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly decrease or perhaps remove your electric expenses
Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can make up a big part of your monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your utility costs and you'll still save a great deal of cash.
#2 Make a terrific return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the finest ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the past 10 years, property electrical energy costs have increased by approximately 3 percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect against unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a business or homeowner with changing capital, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and handle your expenditures.
#4 Boost your property worth
Numerous studies have found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater home values and offer faster 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 property buyers end up being more educated about solar, need for homes equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial element of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost variations in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a terrific method to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A typical residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are very important parts of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that decide to run responsibly. Companies are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of customer buying decisions, creating goodwill and improving company outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Lots of house owners pick to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- 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 Investment
The utility business are well-known for their changing and unreliable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and basic math, we can calculate how much electricity will be generated, and most significantly, at exactly what cost, for at least 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Is The Major Source Of Energy In Our Solar System?
Nuclear energy in the sun, which is then transferred by radiation. The nuclear reactions are caused by colliding particles in the sun's core due to the massive gravity.
Is It Economical To Run A Solar Energy To Power My Electricals At Home?
I Was Thinking Of Having It Installed In My House But I Still Have To Do Some Research If It Is Economical And Efficient.
Unfortunately to use solar panels that convert sunlight directly into electricity is not economical or energy efficient. The only time it is really worth it is if you are in a remote location and it is one of your only options.
Solar panels lose 40% of the energy from the sun as heat loss. If instead you used solar collectors to directly heat the water you use in your home you would save more money and energy. Solar Collector systems are much cheaper. Why convert the suns energy to electricity only to turn around an convert it to heat again to warm your water?
Photoelectric Solar panels are very expensive to produce money-wise, and energy-wise. With current technology the amount of energy that is used to produce a photoelectric panel is MORE than the amount of energy it will ever produce. The quality of Silicon Crystal required does not occur naturally and the process that it takes to produce it is very energy intensive. ( 2100-2300 degree C temps are required ) Photoelectric power has the perception of being "green" but only if you leave the production process out of the equation.
as for the money side, you might be able to come out ahead if you can buy the panels outright and recieve a tax break. Then if you live in a very sunny area, the more direct sunlight you get the more benefit you recieve.
Why Is President Bush Wrong On Offshore And Anwar Oil Drilling?
The Us Uses Over 7 Billion Barrels Of Oil A Year According To The Energy Information Agency. Offshore Drilling On The Continental Shelf Would Give America A Little Over 2 Years Of Oil Supply According To Eia. Anwar Would At Best Provide A Little Less Than 2 Years Of Oil Supply According To Eia. So Instead Of Turning To Electric Cars Like The Phoenix Sut / Suv Which He Himself Endorsed On The White House Grounds He Shows His True Colors All For A Measly 4 Years Of Oil Production Which Would Take 6 To 10 Years To Bring Online. Wind And Solar Can Provide Half The Energy Of The Usa If Programmed Correctly. He Was Educated At Yale? Hard To Believe.
Because it is very expensive to drill offshore and we don't even know if there is oil there. It's a pricey risk! Not to mention the cost to the environment. Also, offshore drilling will not drop gas prices. IF and that's a big IF, oil is found it would not make it to the pumps for years maybe even decades. This is just a GOP gimmick.
What Are Your Views On Energy Production And The Environment?
I Don'T Usually Post Or Read Questions Under Global Warming, In My Experience, Most People Under This Tab Are Looking For A Fight, Not An Answer. We Live In A Home That Is Powered By The Wind And Sun For Environmental Reasons. I'M Not Concerned About Global Warming, My Theory Is That The Earth Will Rebalance Itself Whatever We Do To It, Even If It Kills All Of Us In The Process.

Thanks For Your Time, Rudydoo
I worked for more 35yrs in the power generation industry, and know what most people don't know, and that is that electrical grids have to operate in very narrow ranges, output has to match demand, voltage and frequency must be maintained, to do this means constant adjustment of load output, a lot of which is done automatically by 'free govenor action' some is done by preplanned load changes (we approx know peak demand periods) and a lot of load alterations are done as and when needed.
Of the renewables, hydro is brilliant it is the most flexible of all power generation, it can start up or shut down in minutes and control anywhere in between, Geothermal well I don't know that much about it, but it seems okay, tidal not so flexible but at least we know in advance what the tides will do. However solar and wind are really useless, they can't change load and you never know whether they will produce zero or too much, they cause a burden on other generating systems which have to make up for their lack of flexibility.
You say your home is powered by wind and sun, do you have grid back up? or do you just put up with lack of power, when the wind does not blow and the sun shine, or do you live in a place with permanent sunny skies and constant wind?
My view is give up the back to nature approach, but move forward to better technology, improved generating means (probably some form of nuclear) more efficient and less polluting generation, we can do it, we have the knowledge, the ingenuity, the innovation, but it seems we are lacking motivation.
Your second link, is about health, what about the many millions who do not have electricity and suffer respiratory diseases from burning wood and animal dung for fuel?
