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 daily life: running your a/c, washing clothes, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, lots of home owners find that the convenience, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably decrease and even eliminate your electric costs
Whether you're a house owner, company, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can make up a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your energy bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.
#2 Make an excellent 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 traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity costs savings, the typical American house owner settles their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the previous ten years, residential electrical power rates have actually increased by approximately 3 percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and secure against unpredictable increases in electricity costs. If you're a business or house owner with ever-changing cash circulation, going solar also helps you much better projection and handle your costs.
#4 Increase your home worth
Several research studies have discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater 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 property buyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for homes equipped 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 part of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price fluctuations in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added 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 anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent way to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A common residential solar panel system will remove 3 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 corporate social duty are necessary elements of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that opt to operate responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of customer buying decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing business outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Many house owners opt to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy 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 utility companies are notorious for their changing and undependable electrical energy prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic mathematics, we can calculate how much electricity will be created, and most notably, at what cost, for at least the next 20 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
How Does Solar Energy Lowers Water Pollution?
I Know Solar Energy Reduces Low Air Pollution, But Idk Anything About Low Water Pollution?
Solar energy reduces water pollution by not creating pollution at all. The more energy created by solar power, the less is needed from conventional sources (coal, oil, natural gas) that pollute the air and water.
For example, air pollution raises the acidity in rain water, which changes the pH in the resulting runoff which goes into rivers and lakes. Also, some forms of mining or drilling for energy sources can pollute the water; there's a big controversy about a new method of extracting natural gas called "fracking." It has been blamed for a lot of water pollution in some areas. Run a search on fracking and you'll find a lot of disturbing videos on YouTube.
Solar, wind, geothermal and tidal energy sources do not generate pollution and should be explored. (Also, they don't result in revenue streams to countries who fund terrorism, another nice side benefit.)
Ok.I Can See Building The Solar Panel For Cheap, But How Much Is The Power Inverter?U Need To Change Dc To Ac.?
Those sites that advertise you can build your own solar panel cost effectively are misleading. http://www.nlcpr.com/Deceptions6.php
But to answer your question, an inexpensive inverter that's intended to plug into the cigarette lighter socket in a car is about $50 - but you can often find something for $19.99 on sale. Here are some examples (I don't endorse these, it's just an example): http://www.newegg.com/Store/SubCategory....
How Can You Terraform Mars Without A Moon, And With No Fossil Fuels, How Do You Think It Will Turn Out?
How Can You Terraform Mars Without A Moon, And With No Fossil Fuels, How Do You Think It Will Turn Out?
Why worry about fossil fuels? There's solar panels, nuclear power, possibly fusion, thermal differential...
And why is a moon important? Mars doesn't have oceans, so zero need for tides.
You do need to worry about the near vacuum for an atmosphere, weak gravity, no molten core (weak to nonexistent magnetic field), incoming meteoroids, radiation and few other things that makes life their awkward.
How Much Does It Cost To Get Solar Panels For Your Home? Where Do You Find It, Is This Available Everywhere?
On average, a turn key photo voltaic system will cost you about $4 per Watt. There may be some incentive rebate offers by your state, local government and possibly your electricity provider to help ease the cost of installation.
As to solar energy being available everywhere, for the most part, it is. However, different areas have a better solar production level than others. Arizona often rates as one of the best states for installing PV systems. Florida is also a good state too. On the other hand, areas around Seattle might not do so well.

What Are Some Reliable Sources Arguing Against Wind And Solar Power As Renewable Energy Resources?
I Am Writing A College Level Research Paper Arguing That Wind And Solar Power Are Not Reliable Renewable Energy Resources, Especially For Large Scale Energy Production. There Is No Lack Of Information On The Internet. My Problem Is Finding Reliable Sources That I Can Quote And Cite And Also Argue Against These Wind And Solar Energy. Ideally, These Sources Would Relate To Location/Climate Problems, Low Energy Production, High Construction/Maintenance Costs. I Am Also Writing About Biomass And Hydroelectric Power Being A Better Solution So A Source Comparing These With The Wind And Solar Power Resources Would Also Be Very Beneficial. If There Is Anyone Out There Who Knows Some Sources I Can Use I Would Appreciate Any Help.
You do have a problem as few, if any, reliable sources would count these proven resources out of any plausible energy production equation. The costs have been dropping drastically and the efficiencies increasing rapidly. Both wind and solar power sources are currently in use around the world as alternatives to the use of finite consumable fuels. Hydro-electric and biomass production should be looked at as additional means and not as either / or replacements. The goals are the same, an infinite source of affordable energy that does little to no damage to the environment.
Personally, and take it as such, I would like to see all avenues of renewable resources funded as much as possible. I think the answer is not going to be found in one form of energy but in a combination of many. Linking the best forms to their most suitable use would be a likely means for gaining the best possible outcome while incurring the least harm.
Even here in Alaska, solar has found many uses, wind farms are being purposed and hydro-electric is on the horizons. Diversity just may be the answer while these new forms of energy continue to evolve.
