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 conditioner, washing clothes, watching TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, many residents discover that the convenience, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically decrease and even eliminate your electric expenses
Whether you're a homeowner, service, or nonprofit, electricity expenses can comprise a large part of your month-to-month costs. With a solar panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your utility costs and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the best 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 average American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical power prices have actually increased by approximately three percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and protect versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a service or homeowner with rising and falling money flow, going solar also helps you better forecast and manage your costs.
#4 Boost your house worth
Numerous research studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater home values and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for homes geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential component of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar market included tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a terrific way to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A typical residential photovoltaic panel system will remove three to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are essential parts of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding organisations that decide to operate properly. Organisations are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of consumer buying choices, producing goodwill and improving company outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Many homeowners select to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy 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 utility companies are notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electricity prices. There is plainly an upward trend.
With solar panels and basic math, we can compute just how much electrical energy will be generated, and most importantly, at what price, for a minimum of 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
- 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
How Easy Or Difficult Is It To Obtain Solar Energy?
I Am Doing A Report On Solar Energy And Need A Little Help.
If You Could Leave Me The Website You Got The Answer From That Would Be Great!! Thanks For Your Help!! :O()
The largest solar collector is our plants.The sun's energy is stored in the plants leaves and seed.
Why Are We Dragging Our Heals With Alternative Energy Solutions?
According To A Study By David Mills, Chief Scientific Officer Of Ausra, A 92 Square Mile Patch Of Southwestern Desert Could Power The Entire Country Via Solar Power. The Solar Converts Energy To Steam Which Is Used To Power The Turbines To Make Electricity. It Would, However, Require A Complete 'Revamping' Of Our Current Electrical Infrastructure From An Ac Grid To A High Voltage Dc Grid.
Instead Of Bailing Out Failed Businesses Like Aig, We Could Have Changed Our Whole System And Cut Our Oil Dependency In Half.
Most Of Us Are Aware That Gm Produced The Ev1, A Highly Efficient And Highly Functional Electric Vehicle That Regularly Got 100-140 Miles Before Recharging. The Top Speed Was Electronically Regulated To Reach 80Mph, Without The Regulator Electric Cars Have Been Clocked At Over 180Mph. The Ev1 Was Mysteriously Recalled And All Models Crushed For Political Reasons.
The Technology Not Only Exists, But Has Existed For Decades. So What Are We Waiting For? Who Or What Is Holding Us Back, And What, If Anything, Can Be Done About It??
All of your ideas make great sense but the country is still moving in another direction. The process for the first nuclear power plant in 30 years has been started. Oil companies are promoting hydrogen vehicles so that they can supply hydrogen and we will be duped into thinking we have a clean fuel. Some electric car companies have received funds, but only those who were politically connected and the review process was done by a very small number of civil servants (no doubt hired from the petrochemical industry) And the Supreme court recently handed down a ruling that says corporations can now fund political candidates in an unlimited amount.
Soon we may begin to see the days of the corporate candidate where corporate logo's may be a part of the political campaign and the politicians will no longer be known as the Senator from Arizona or Texas but the Dow chemical, Chevron, or Monsanto candidate. It may be the last step in removing that fiction that political "representatives" represent people instead of corporations.

What Is The Average Cost For Home Solar Panels?
Despite what many people say, you don't need batteries for a solar system if you are going to also be connected to the electric company (grid). You just need the panels and an inverter (and mounting hardware and safety equipment like breakers and fuses).
Most people don't generate all of the electricity they use. They offset some of their use with solar and buy the rest from the grid. You can get a very small grid-tied solar system for as little as $3000. However, it won't generate much electricity at all. I'd say an average size system is around $10k - $20k. Here are some packages that show all of the components needed. http://www.altestore.com/store/Kits-and-...
If you want to see how much you need, look at your electric bill and see how many kwh you buy each month. Put that number into a calculator like this one, and see how big of a system you need. http://www.altestore.com/store/calculato... Installed cost is about $8 per watt of solar panel.
How Can Solar Energy Be Used During Darker Parts Of The Year?
Trying To Figure Out The 2 Most Renewable Sources.. Solar Puts Up A Pretty Good Fight But It Can'T Hold Energy For Like 4 Months During Winter...? So What Can Be Done About That If Anything.
Solar is pretty useless unless your in Arizona or California.
Until we can find an economical efficient way of storing electricity, we should forget wind and solar.
They are expensive, but that's not the problem they are unreliable and uncontrollable.
Any power station engineer knows you have to exactly balance load to demand, controlling frequency in very a narrow range, if it goes outside that, generator trips occur follow by a blackout.
South Australia just suffered a statewide blackout, they are trying to blame the weather, but if they had had more coal fired stations running and less wind generators they would have survived it.
I Would Like To Power Some Home Appliances Such As Computer And Tv How Would I Select Solar Panels For This?
I Have Been Studying The Possibility Of Using Solar Electricity For Home Use. I Have No Idea Of How It Works, Thanks.
If I Have To Go Into Solar Business What Do I Need To Do In Order To Convince The Prospective Buyers. There Is So Much Lack Of Awareness.
Don't go into a business you know NOTHING about!
Solar power is DC so most home apliances won't work. The panels are used to charge a battery bank and the batteries provide the power. it can be done but effectively you would need to rewire your house to work like a camper van or a yacht! Contact me directly if you are
