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 system, washing clothes, viewing TV, 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 ecological advantages of solar power are significant, many property owners discover that the benefit, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically lower or perhaps remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a house owner, service, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can make up a large part of your month-to-month expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.
#2 Earn a great return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power expense savings, the average American house owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, residential electricity costs have increased by approximately three percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and secure against unpredictable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a service or house owner with rising and falling capital, going solar also helps you better forecast and manage your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home value
Numerous studies have discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher property values and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for properties geared up 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 component of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price variations in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs 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 an excellent method to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A typical property solar 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 responsibility are necessary parts of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that opt to operate responsibly. Companies are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of customer purchasing choices, creating goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Numerous homeowners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar 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 Financial investment
The energy business are notorious for their varying and unreliable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and easy math, we can compute how much electricity will be created, and most notably, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired 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
- 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
At What Point Will The Cost Of Gas Make It More Affordable To Start Using Some Of The Other Alternative Energy
Sources: Like Solar Panels To Convert Water To Hydrogen To Fuel Our Cars - We Have The Technology, Just Don'T Want To Spend The Money To Convert Over. So What Is The Break Off Point: $10/Gallon, $20/Gallon?
It will happen much lower than that. With the inevitability of rising prices, and the dangerousness of sending money overseas, allowing foreign nations that much control over us, and basically sending our money to nations that use that money to fund terrorism, the research and development money and conservation measures, long blocked by the influence that Big Oil money has wielded in Washington, will be brought to bear.
The point of profitable return on alternative technology will get lower and lower as the technology improves. They've already increased, many times over, the energy output of solar cells, to the point where they are on par, in terms of energy cost with building a new coal plant.
I think we've already reached the break off point where we WANT to go to other sources, so now technologies that are new or have been ignored will quickly gain on our outmoded status quo.
The huge breakthrough that will happen in ethanol production will be when they figure out cellulose fermentation - then the stalks and wood product and paper waste will be able to be broken down into starches that can be converted to ethanol - basically waste from current agriculture will be used, so there would be ethanol production without putting a hit on the food production, and not requiring additional farming.
What Are The Pros And Cons Of Using Solar Panels?

Making the switch to solar energy has never been so rewarding. Take advantage of federal tax credits and state rebates, offered to those who install PV and solar thermal systems. In addition to saving money, you actually earn credits (SREC's, Green Tags) for producing solar power - which in turn is then purchased by utility -
I could say is that you have to lay out money upfront.
You can recycle almost everything. Like bottles, plastic, boxes paper, tires, light bulbs and much more.

How Do Solar Panels Help The Environment?
Please Help Me For My Hm
Solar Panels are powered by renewable energy. It captures sun radiation and transform it to energy DC ( direct current) then with help of inverter energy is transformed to AC (alternative current)
Solar panels do not create any pollution during process of creating energy. They are pollution free. By using solar PV you can save some CO2 and make your home environment friendly.
By using Solar Panels you also save natural resources which are used to generate energy in old fashion technology which use coal or even the now technology like nuclear electricity they also sending CO2 to atmosphere.
What Do People Mean When They Say Their Solar Panels Can Give About 20 Cents Per Kwh?
What Do People Mean When They Say Their Solar Panels Can Give About 20 Cents Per Kwh? Do They Base It On What The Panels Costs And How Much You Could Save For An Amount Of Time?
When we buy power we pay about 14 cents per kWh (in NSW). The NSW government will not legislate any buy back scheme because of the power and influence of the coal industry. In SA, the consumer pays about 21 cents - the energy utility has to buy it back, if the consumer is grid connected, at 42 cents. Hence the 20 cents per kWh. VIC and QLD consumers can get an additional 6 cents more than they pay, but it also depends on what your energy provider is prepared to pay. If you are not grid connected, ie you use batteries to store and use the power later, the government refunds half your establishment costs. This is under the Remote Area Power Scheme (RAPS), which helps people who would have to pay in excess of $30,000 to have electricity connected.
I recently advised a client (I am a sustainability consultant/designer) about a system, 2.4kW, that should generate the same amount of energy that they use each year. It should take them 14 years to pay back their investment - less if the price of power increases - most likely with the privatisation of energy in NSW.
Why Dont People Use Solar Panels, Water Ect For Their Electricity?
I Watch This Show Invention Nation And They Are So Awesome On There. They Meet Inventors And Come Up With Awesome Ways To Be Money/Debt Free Of Power Like Solar Panels To Power The Entire House- No Bad Emissions/ Price Free. So Why Arent We Doing This To Everyone's Houses? I Cant Because I Am In Government Housing And I Cant Change Government Property But Other People Can So Why Dont They?
Right now it is prohibitively expensive. The upfront cost of the solar panels is more expensive than the money they would save for most people.
It would cost most houses at least $20k in solar panels and other equipment to generate the kind of electricity they would need, and most people just don't have that kind of money, and while there are some government rebate programs to offset some of the costs, they only cover a fraction of the total costs.
When solar panels start getting cheaper, we will see more and more of this.
