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 resident to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, cleaning clothes, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, many residents find that the convenience, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically decrease or perhaps eliminate your electrical bills
Whether you're a house owner, service, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can make up a big portion of your monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your energy bills and you'll still save a lot of money.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy bill cost 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 increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, property electricity rates have increased by approximately three percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unforeseeable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a service or property owner with rising and falling cash circulation, going solar also assists you better forecast and manage your expenditures.
#4 Boost your home or business value
Numerous research studies have discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher home worths and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential element of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is an excellent method to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A typical property solar panel system will get rid of three to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

Sustainability and corporate social duty are essential parts of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that opt to run responsibly. Services are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of consumer purchasing decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing company outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Many homeowners choose to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility companies are notorious for their changing and undependable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and easy math, we can determine just how much electrical energy will be created, and most importantly, at exactly 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

Frequently Asked Questions
How Is Solar Energy Harnessed (Collected) ?
You can read about solar energy and how it is created and used here:
Which Energy Sources Will Still Be Available When You Are 70?
Solar, geo-thermal, wind, hydro, various fossil fuels, nuclear (fission and hopefully fusion by then), bio-waste fuels.
How Many Solar Panels Do I Need To Run A Pump?
I Plan To Buy Solar Panels Of The Following Configuration:
Sun Force 39110 / 123 Watt - 7 Amps
To Run Through An Inverter, To Produce The 110V I Need To Run The Pump During The Day.
The Pump Is 110V / 7.5 Amps / 0.5 Hp
My Question Is, How Many Solar Panels Would I Need To Run The Pump?
Are you sure you want those panels? It would probably be more cost-effective to get higher-wattage panels. From those specs, it sounds like you need about 800 watts of panels. That's 4 200-watt panels.
I would skip the inverter, and look for a pump that runs off DC. In fact, many AC motors will run off DC, although that's a trial-and-error sort of thing that no one will guarantee. Typically you would lower the voltage input to do so, so a 110-volt AC induction motor would run off maybe 70-80 volts DC, to avoid burning out the motor. But if you get a pump rated for DC, then you'll certainly have something that works right.
What Is A Distributed Resource?
What Is A Distributed Resource (In Terms Of The Environment) Vs A Point Source? I Know Biomass Is A Distributed Resource But What Is The Definition Of &Quot;Distributed Resource&Quot;?
Distributed resource would be an energy source that can be harnessed (effectively) in almost all corners of the world, and doesn't need special conditions to be cost-effective (for instance solar energy is only costs effective in areas with plenty of sun, wind energy in areas with plenty of wind, etc, while biomass, in its many forms, can be successfully harnessed in almost all parts of the world.
What Do You Think Of The Northern Cape?
What'S Your View Of The Northern Cape, With Regards To It'S People It'S Culture, And It'S Three Big Towns\Cities Kimberley,Kuruman And Upington Which Have More That Half The Northern Cape 'S Population And What Do You Think Is The Province'S Future And It'S Future Role In South Africa
I live in the Northern Cape, though not in any of the "big 3" cities.
Its anything but hot & dusty now - in fact it has been raining at least twice a week for months!
It will always have a low population.
Agriculture is the driver of the economy while mining is slowly becoming less significant as the mines close down when they are "mined out". I think it could become a major contributor to renewable energy in future - wind farms and solar energy - perhaps nuclear along the coast.
Karoo villages are becoming quite popular as "getaway" destinations for city folks from particularly the Western Cape - old cottages sell for high prices to these "city refugees".
