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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your a/c, cleaning clothing, enjoying TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, numerous homeowners discover that the benefit, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically reduce or perhaps remove your electric costs
Whether you're a house owner, organization, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a large part of your monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your energy bills and you'll still save a great deal of loan.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power costs savings, the average 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 versus rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the previous 10 years, property electrical power prices have increased by an average of 3 percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard against unforeseeable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're a business or homeowner with ever-changing money circulation, going solar also assists you better projection and manage your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home worth
Several research studies have found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher home values and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, need for properties 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 component of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A typical property solar panel system will remove three to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are necessary elements of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that opt to run properly. Businesses are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of consumer buying choices, creating goodwill and improving business outcomes.
#9 Start Saving 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 homeowners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This means that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- 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 utility business are infamous for their changing and undependable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can determine just how much electrical power will be created, and most notably, at exactly what price, for at least 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

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
Would Hydroelectric Power Be A Good Energy Source For Chicago? Why Or Why Not ?
My Other Choices For An Energy Source For Chicago Are Wind Energy, Solar Energy, Biomass Energy, Fossil Fuels, Geothermal Energy, And Nuclear Power But I Have To Have Good Reasons On Why I Chose The Energy Source And It Was To Be Realistic As Well.
hydro electric power is a clean and safe power source. As I understand it, the problem is finding suitable large rivers and dams with a large enough water drop for generating the power.
How Can Solar Energy Be Converted To Electrical Energy?
I Am Thinking Of Storing The Solar Energy For Future Use At Home And Outdoors.Is It Necessary That The Energy We Derive From The Sun Thru Panels Be Put Into Use As Soon As We Get Or It Could Be Stored In Someplace For Future Use Like For Home Appliances And Gadgets .Instead Of Using Lpg Or Hydro Electricity Which Has No Guarantee Of Supply
Solar energy can be converted into Electrical Energy by using Photo-volatic cells/Solar panels. Till now solar energy is stored in batteries. But if u can generate enough heatfrom the solar energy u can store them using the property Latent Heat of Fusion.
What Are Some Inherencies On Solar Energy?
Hello, I Am In A Debate Class And I Need Some Inherencies On Solar Energy Please, Thanks
Inherency-Current administration opposes R+D now
"Top energy official extols Colorado based federal lab" Nov 8 2007
Fact: NREL has laid off 32 employees and suffered a $28 million shortfall (National Renewable Energy Lab) So currently understaffed and underfunded national labs for renewable energy research.
Inherency-tax credits for renewable energy have fallen prey to cost cutting related to the Iraq war
"Foster: Dems pushing for renewable energy," March 29, 2008 UPI
There is an effort underway to extend and renew tax cuts supporting the production and use of renewable energy. The tax cuts for renewable energy have little chance of passing due to the costs of the Iraq war. (how ironic is that, LOL)
These two inherencies prove that the US is not currently doing enough to support research and development of renewable energy such as solar, and also not extending tax credits to promote development and purchase of renewable energy such as solar.
Also, look out your window. How many solar panels do you see? There is an inherency right there.
What Is Solar Energy And What Does It Have To Do With?
Solar energy is energy that comes from the Sun. It is a good energy source to pursue because it is renewable. No matter how much we use, it doesn't reduce the amount of energy available.
How Long Before We Run Out Of Oil And Natural Gas?
First, we will never extract all the oil and natural gas that that has currently been discovered. About 85% of the original gas in place can be recovered from a gas reservoir leaving about 15% residual gas. A reasonable recovery factor for an oil reservoir is about 30%. That means that 70% of the original oil in place remains in the reservoir at the end of primary recovery. Secondary recovery techniques such as waterflooding the reservoir after primary depletion will produce additional oil, but not all of what remains. Therefore, even known fields won’t be entirely depleted.
Second, even in mature, heavily explored petroleum basins, we are unlikely to discover all of the hydrocarbon reservoirs that exist. Some areas tend to have reservoirs that are too small or too complicated to favor commercial success from exploratory drilling. Exploration economics will have to improve significantly before much effort can be justified in these areas.
Also there are geographic areas that are politically sensitive, resulting in restricted exploration. In the USA, these include areas off the east & west coasts, offshore Florida, the eastern Gulf of Mexico and the 1002 multi-use area of ANWR. It will require significant shortages and high petroleum prices to influence the public and elected politicians to open these areas to exploration and production.
To estimate how much producible hydrocarbon reserves exist, you need to know two things. First you need to be able to estimate the probability distribution of undiscovered fields remaining. Second, you need to be able to estimate the value of the produced products and the finding and extraction costs. These are just estimates, they will never be known with certainty. There is considerable variation is the parameters that influence the estimation of commercial reserve calculations. As the world economies heat up, China and India for example, began to compete with the United States and Europe for petroleum products. The increase in demand drives up prices. This becomes an incentive for increased exploration because marginal prospects will now exceed economic thresholds and some of them will subsequently be drilled. However, there is a dampening impact the quickly begins to follow the increase in drilling. Costs for drilling rigs, geophysical crews acquiring seismic and potential field data, land lease royalties and bonuses all begin to increase rapidly. This begins to make marginally commercial prospects less attractive again. Thus, estimating commercial reserves is like shooting at a moving target.
Finally, there is increasing competition from other energy sources. Wind and solar energy sources will undoubtedly increase their market share in the future. It is interesting that nuclear energy is also getting some press because it produces no CO2 waste products. These and other competitors to petroleum will replace petroleum consumption as they become effective cost competitors in the future. This will happen long before all extractable hydrocarbons have been produced.
