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 a/c, cleaning clothing, enjoying TV, cooking dinner. All while lowering 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 substantial, many homeowners find that the convenience, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically reduce or even eliminate your electrical costs
Whether you're a property owner, business, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can comprise a large portion of your regular monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll produce free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your utility expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of money.
#2 Earn a fantastic return on your 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 significant electricity costs cost savings, the typical American property owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect against increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the previous 10 years, property electrical power costs have actually gone up by approximately three percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a company or homeowner with rising and falling capital, going solar also helps you much better forecast and manage your costs.
#4 Increase your house worth
Several research studies have actually discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater property worths and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, demand for properties 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 an essential element of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a terrific way to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A typical residential solar panel system will remove 3 to 4 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are essential parts of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that decide to run properly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of consumer acquiring decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing company results.
#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 money down.
Lots of house owners decide to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The energy business are notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward trend.
With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can determine just how much electrical power will be generated, and most significantly, at what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).
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.

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
Why Dont The Solar Companies Start Manufacturing Safe Mirrors For Reflecting Much More Warm Sunlight Into Liv?
I Found Out That There Is Safe Mirrors Already Available That Anyone Can Buy And Mount In Our Yards Or Certain Suitable Locations To Reflect Much More Sunlight Toward Our Living Quarters Of Homes And Apartments.. Those Safe Mirrors Are Commonly Bought For Certain Places Like Gymansiums, Children Centers , Schools, Etc.. Those Mirrors Are Shatterproof And They Are Also Useful For Our Solar Energy Programs .. Why Are We So Focused Or Tunnel Visioned Toward Photovoltaics As If Pvs Is The Only Way We Can Harness Solar Energy ? Mirrors Reflect Over 90% Of Sunlight And They Can Be Trained To Point Toward Windows, Sliding Glass Doors Or Even Over Skylights To Heat Indoors.. We Can Also Use Special Solar Furnaces That Can Receive Concentrated Sunlight From Mirrors. Why Arent We Starting Using Such Mirrors To Help Cut Down Our Dependence On Natural Gas, Heating Oil, Or Electricity From Coal And Nuclear ,Etc Whenever The Sun Is Shining. We Can Add Automatic Sun Tracking Devices To Do The Constant Adjustments Themselves Without Any Of Us Having To Trot Outside To Readjust Them As The Sun Moves Across The Sky.. Sure, Suntracking Devices Has To Be Computerized Based On Gps And Stuff To Suit Everybody'S Own Location. This Is Not A Simple Thing To Make Which Means It Requires Manufacturers To Do So.. Why Is Our Manufacturers Still Sitting On Hands Or Even Worse Our Government Doing Nothing With Tax Credits For Such Wonderful Non-Existentail Products That We Can Have Right Now... Are We Too Overprotective Of Our Fossil Fuel Industries??? Investors Still Believe That Fossil Fuel Producers Is The Only Energy Providers We Need For The Forseeable Future Despite The Increased Potential Of Environmental Damage That Will Happpen Like In Arctic Ocean Or Other Senstive Locations That They Are Now After.. Should We Stop The Pace Of Our &Quot;Crazy&Quot; Fossil Fuel Producers With Solar Mirrors That Are Powerful Enough To Start Taking Lunch Money Away From Them.. We Should Stop Being So Soft On Fossil Fuel Investors And Start Giving Them A Run For Their Money!! Should We ? Safe Mirrors Are A Very Incredibly Powerful Energy Source In Terms Of Home Heating That You Traditionally Receive From Your Central Furnace Or Wall Heaters Or Even Fireplaces ... Safe Mirrors Are Very Incredible !!
Sorry, I'm not about to read through all that. Basically, a window or three is enough to light a room. Look up at the sun- it hurts your eyes. Same thing would happen with a mirror reflecting sunlight. You're right that PV is not any good for heating, unless it's used to power a geothermal heat pump. Solar thermal hot water heaters are the accepted way of harvesting heat from the sun for heating buildings.
Why Don'T Hot Countries Make Use Of Their Potential Solar Energy?
I'Ve Read That Some Areas With Temperate/Cold Climates Have Built Solar Energy Stations While Sunny Countries As Africa, Egypt And Mexico Still Depend On Other Sources. Why Is That? Is Solar Energy Unreliable? Thanks In Advance.
In many places you will find solar panels being used, even in remote African villages, they are simple affairs usually a 10W panel charging a car battery and used in conjunction with 12V appliances (often radios) and lights. The cost of a full solar set up is too high in most cases, the inverters, the battery banks and big panels are beyond the reach of most.
Solar energy is slowly being used more and more. On a large scale using solar for electricity production on a power station scale is fairly new technology and is still quite expensive, many countries invest in hydro systems. Solar power is like wind power very good but it needs a lot of cells or a lot of wind turbines to produce the same output as more conventional electric productions methods.
If Everyone Drove An Electric Car, Would Windmills Produce Enough Energy To Charge Them?
Or Will The 0% Emissions From The Car Be A Moot Point Due To The Production Of Electricity To Charge Them?
Theres a guy on youtube that charges his electric car by solar panels, so I think it actually would, that with solar panel combination. He charges his car every night for free, and he hasn't had to pay for anything except upkeep.
This isn't the exact video, but its the same guy, just look at the videos in his channel, he loves his RAV4-EV
Found the exact video, its kind of techy but its interesting.
Whats A Better Job, Wind Power Technician Or Solar? More Pay Etc?
I Was Thinking About Getting A Certificate In Renewable Energy. . I Was Wondering If I Should Focus On Wind Or Solar. Which One Has A Better Future And Pays More? Also Is Installing/Maintaining A Wind Turbine Harder To Learn Then Solar? Maybe I Can Learn Both But Focus On The Harder Of The Two For My Classes And Learn The Other One On My Own. If Anyone Has Some Insight Or Has Done These Things Id Like To Know What They Think
Wind requires a lot more maintenance compared to solar. With solar technology, there are no moving parts. Therefore, typically you complete a solar installation and do not have to return to the site for maintenance. Wind, on the other hand, requires a large amount of regular maintenance. I'm sorry, but I don't think I can give you information on the salary for a career in wind vs. solar.
I think solar installations will be more prevalent in the future so I would place my bets on solar if I were you.
How Does Solar Panels Save Energy?
Discription How Does Solar Panels Save Energy
Solar panels don't save energy, they just utilize a different source of energy. To the extent that it replaces energy from sources which are limited themselves (such as fossil fuels), solar energy does save those resources.* The main benefits of solar energy are environmental in the sense that it is nonpolluting,* but using solar energy doesn't reduce actual power consumption.
*Excludes environmental costs of producing the solar panels themselves, but these are much smaller than the environmental benefits of solar vs. fossil fuel (which has infrastructure costs of its own).
