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 unit, washing clothing, viewing 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 benefits of solar power are considerable, many property owners find that the convenience, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably minimize or even eliminate your electric costs
Whether you're a homeowner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can make up a big part of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your utility costs and you'll still save a great deal of cash.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power costs cost savings, the average American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility rates. In the past ten years, residential electrical energy prices have increased by approximately three percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure against unforeseeable increases in electricity costs. If you're a service or property owner with changing capital, going solar also assists you much better forecast and manage your costs.
#4 Increase your home value
Several research studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property worths and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key component of accomplishing 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 cost variations in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is an excellent way to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A common domestic solar panel system will remove three to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are very important components of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that pick to run properly. Companies are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of customer acquiring decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing company results.
#9 Start Saving 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 loan down.
Lots of property owners choose to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This means that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The energy companies are well-known for their varying and undependable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward trend.
With solar panels and simple math, we can compute how much electrical power will be created, and most notably, at exactly what cost, for at least 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 Is Drilling For Oil Damaging To The Environment?
I Care About Keeping The Environment But I Know We Need Oil And At The Same Time I Think We Should Look Into Electricity And Solar And Wind And Coal. I Know There Are Ways To Drill On Land That Doesn'T Damage The Environment. I Just Want To Know How It'S Done? How Is Drilling Bad To The World? How Can We Drill With Caution? What Are The Different Ways And Why Doesn'T The Oil Companys Use These Methods To Be Green? I'D Like Done Facts From Both Sides And Storys About How Bad Oil Companys Are To The Environment And How They Mistreat There Workers. Thank You And Please Try Hard Not To Use The Bp Oil Spill Story.
There is simply NO way to drill risk free. Even the most sophisticated and carefully thought out regulations are still subject to human error and chance.
The companies that drill constantly fight or even violate regulations that would at least reduce risk in order to save money, both to increase their own profit and since any more money spent would be passed onto the customer in the form of higher prices/taxes
Drilling for oil creates pollution in two ways, the most prevalent being air pollution and smog through the burning of fossil fuels. This leads to climate change, disrupted weather patterns and such.
The second and far more devastating are oil spills (like the one in the gulf) the natural chemicals in crude oil destroy any life it touches, sticks to plant and animal life, seeps into soil, contaminates water and can affect the food chain all the way up.
The only way to truly eliminate the risk of oil drilling is to use less of it and begin changing over our energy methods to cleaner technologies such as solar, wind, hydrogen, or hydroelectric
How Is Solar Powered Energy Used In The North ?
First Of All I Need Help In My Science Project. :|
And Second Of All Im Just Wondering That In Like Northern Parts Of The World How Is Solar Powered Energy Efficeint And How Excatly Does It Work ?
Well, it depends how far North you are talking. If you are talking about Alaska, the solar energy would be absorbed during the months when Alaska is in total light. Since the sun is not as strong in Alaska as it is in other places of the world, the energy would take longer to be absorbed at times, but it would still be collected. Believe it or not, even when it is cloudy outside in places, solar energy is still collected.
Do All Solar Powered Calculators Store Energy?
I Have A Calculator That Only Works With Light, But Another Solar Powered One That Works Without Light. Whats Could Be The Problem
The one that works only with light is truly solar-powered.
I have taken apart some cheap "dual-powered" calculators that have an actual battery in them. Those had fake solar cells, and actually ran only off the battery. Look carefully on your calculator and see if there is a place for a little button cell.
From the technical standpoint, it would be possible to charge a small capacitor from a solar cell in a calculator, but that would have little practical value. Even weak indoor lighting is enough to power a calculator, and if the lighting were too dim, you'd have trouble reading the display, anyway. In normal usage, a little button battery lasts for a very long time, possibly years, so there's little to be gained by going to a recharging scheme.
Could Nano Batteries W/Lots Of Solar Panels Be Placed Around The Sun Be Used As Energy For Light Speed Travel?
yes, if you were making light its self travel.
it is not possible to get a ship to go as fast as the speed of light without some how using infinite energy.
just because light is being collected, doesn't mean it can make anything travel at the speed of light.
Are There Resources In Our Solar System Worth Mining Or Harvesting?
Besides On Earth
Depends what you mean by 'worth mining or harvesting'. Right now, the cost of transporting any kind of material from some other part of the Solar System far outweighs the value of the material itself for any practical purpose (right now it is only done for scientific and/or sentimental purposes). However, if you wanted to fly a spaceship to another object in the Solar System and build a base there, there could easily be useful materials present there to support many aspects of the base, including rock to build buildings and radiation shielding out of, water ice to melt down and drink, and soil which could be used to grow plants after some nutrients are added. Furthermore, if you had the technology to make space travel much cheaper than it is now, there are a few resources available elsewhere in the Solar System that might be useful on Earth. The main one is helium-3, which is present on the Moon in much greater quantities than it is on Earth and could conceivably be used in certain types of fusion power plants (although unfortunately we don't have any working fusion power plants yet). The Moon also has uranium which could be used in fission power plants, although the uranium is much heavier (and thus harder to transport) for its energy output than the He3 is. Finally, there is another interesting energy source, sunlight, which is of course present in larger quantities closer to the Sun; it might be useful to build a space-based satellite near the Sun and have it collect sunlight and shoot it back to us in the form of a laser beam. That is rather speculative, though, and with foreseeable technology the energy lost in that process would outweigh the benefit of collecting closer to the Sun.
