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 homeowner to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothing, watching TV, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, lots of residents discover that the benefit, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically reduce and even eliminate your electric costs
Whether you're a homeowner, business, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can make up a large part of your regular monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your utility costs and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.
#2 Earn a fantastic return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the finest ways to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity bill cost savings, the typical American property owner settles their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the past ten years, property electricity costs have gone up by approximately 3 percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and secure against unforeseeable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a service or house owner with ever-changing cash circulation, going solar also assists you much better projection and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home or business worth
Several research studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, demand for homes equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key element of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost variations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure 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 reduce that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will eliminate 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are very important elements of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that choose to operate properly. Organisations are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of consumer getting decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Numerous homeowners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The energy companies are infamous for their changing and unreliable electricity rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and basic math, we can determine just how much electrical power will be created, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for at least the next 20 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

Frequently Asked Questions
What Is The Best Alternative Energy Source For The United States?
What Is The Most Practical Renewable Energy That Should Be Exploited By The United States, Considering The Availability Of The Source And The Ability Of The States To Use The Energy?
At present there are many options, but we don't know the full impact of all the new available technologies. When oil was first used as a fuel there was little understanding on the environmental effects which we all know about now.
I would say wind to be the best alternative at present. As long as the world keeps spinning, there will be wind. There is some concern regarding birds killed by the blades, but I don't think it's too significant a factor.
Solar is great, but we don't have the technology to use it independently. The panels are not efficient, they require huge surface areas to produce the required electricity.
Biofuels are a good option, but not when it comes to using food based commodities because this is apparently driving up the cost of those commodities, such as corn and rice. Biofules (specifically methane) derived from waste (landfill, waste water, compost...) are a good option, but there is some concern regarding burning waste... I'm not sure what it is though.
Nuclear is probably the cleanest choice at present and most viable, but I feel that we'll soon find many complications derived from the use of nuclear power plants. The water can't be the same after bombarding it with radioactive substance, and it will affect the surrounding environment, it just seems like common sense. But till we know for sure... Nuclear aint so bad.
In my opinion, we need to figure out how to use less energy with the same economic output in conjunction with an energy source that can return to it's initial state without any negative byproducts after it is processed.
Why Has Solar Energy Not Taken Over Yet?
Its Our Most Abundant Resource And It Creates Life Instead Of Destroying It.
Big Oil And Big Coal Were At One Point Very Expensive And Then Lowered In Price When It Became Common And Popular. Yet The Pollution From Both Is At The Very Least Bad For Mankinds Lives.
Pvc Cells Come From Silicon Which Is The 2Nd Most Prevalent Resource On Earth. The Technology Is Not New. Its Actually Over 40 Years Old.
It Can Be Put Literally Anywhere As It Has Nothing To Do With Temperature.
Sunlight Is Sunlight.
Many Countries Where There Is Less Sun Do Not Need Solar Pvc Energy. Iceland Where It Is Dark 3 Months Out Of The Year Depend On Geothermal And Hydroelectric Energy To Power 100% Of The Country.
Hydroelectric,Wind,Nuclear And Geothermal Energy Can Provide All The Energy The Usa Needs In The Evening Hours.
A Solar Pvc System 3 Times The Size Of Rhode Island Can Power The Entire Usa During The Day. This Easily Fits In Empty Areas Of Utah,Arizona And Nevada.
And There Is Room For More !!
If you checked into the financial aspects of developing solar energy you would find it is not financially viable. While you are covering a couple of states with solar panels, where does the money come from and what is the return and efficiency on solar panels?
Simplistic question.....very, very, very complex answers. And by the way....Iceland probably requires about the same amount of energy as Cleveland does.
Why Is Geothermal Energy Needed?
Wow, there are lots of things you could be asking with these 5 simple words. First 2 clarifications, geothermal energy is the heat in the Earth but this has 2 different sources. The deep heat that comes from the center of the Earth is considered to be due to Nuclear activity in the Earth. The last several hundred feet would be some 30 degrees cooler if it were not due to solar radiation heating up the Earth.
"Need" might be considered a function of requirements. Life has developed to take advantage of the present heat range available on the planet. Life is therefore dependent upon geothermal energy.
We "need" energy that is clean, constant and affordable. Technology has made use of the Earth's heat in volcanic areas to produce electricity and heat for homes on an industrial scale. There is also promise to use old oil wells in a kind of "Dry well" geothermal energy production. By using geothermal heat pump technology we can heat our buildings with relatively shallow wells. So far there has not been widespread use of capturing waste heat to drive stirling engines for home electrical production from shallow geothermal wells.
Geothermal energy has close to a 90% capacity factor (how much you can use it, compared to about 75% for coal and 35%- for wind) in electrical production. It produces no emissions and where available makes a very attractive energy source. About 6% of California's electricity comes from geothermal. There is an argument that we "need" clean reliable energy sources that don't work only when the sun shines or the wind blows.
Geothermal - ground source heat pump is the most efficient way to use electricity in heating as it is only used for compressors and pumps. Operating costs on a ground source heat pump central system may be less than 25% those of a similar gas or oil fired system. And at the home or business it produces no emissions. It is cheapest to install where there is a lake or other surface water instead of having to drill wells.
If You Would Make A Homemade Green Energy Source, What Would It Be, Wind Turbines Or Solar Cells?
Meaning To Say, Which Would You Mostly Prefer?
I see the key words in your question to be "Make Homemade".
It is much easier for the home hobbyist to make a homemade wind turbine out of commonly acquired parts over making solar cells. Solar cells are the term for photovoltaic components. Solar water heating would be easier still.
Out Of Coal, Wind Energy, And Solar Energy, Which Is The Best For Producing Electrical Energy?
Out Of Coal, Wind Energy, And Solar Energy, Which Is The Best For Producing Electrical Energy????
I Need Help By Tonight! This Is For A Project For School Tomarro! Helpp Hellppp Pleasseeeeeeeeeeeeee !!!! I Need Help On That Question With Deatil And Explanation! Please And Thank You!
I Love You All Who Help Me On This! :)
That depends on what you define as "best". Solar and wind are good for the environment and they pretty much provide free energy once they're built. Coal has the advantage that it's cheaper and that it can provide dependable energy. Wind and solar only work at certain times, so a power grid based on them isn't going to be reliable.
