"Our first two bills were approximately $300.00 less than before and our third bill, just received was down about $250.00 from what we were paying! We think it is fantastic!" - William R. - Waltham MA

"They did a wonderful job on my system and I would recommend them to my family and friends!" - Georg S. - Chicopee MA

I cannot express my gratitude for going forward with solar panels. From the initial meeting to discuss the possibility to the techs who eventually installed them. But most of all, it is the savings we have experienced. That first month was unbelievable. Solar plus our other electric source combined was less than our usual monthly expense. During the summer when our electric usage is higher because of the air conditioning, our monthly expense was still less than what we have paid with past summer usage. And if that’s not enough…our present electricity is primarily supplied by the solar panels. We have been building up a reserve with our other electricity source and will be able to draw from that all winter when our panels wont’t generate as much electricity. It’s a win-win situation that we’re just thrilled over. Having a fixed rate locked in is another great feature for savings.” – Virgil T. – Westport MA

Many homeowners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.

As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.

What Is More Important To Control Global Warming Solar Panels Or Trees?
If Everyone Put Solar Panels On Their Roofs They Would Have To Remove All The Trees Near Their Homes That Would Shade Those Panels For The Panels To Work At Maximum Efficiency.

since global warming is a fantasy, the answer is neither, but plant a bunch of trees anyway because they are nice to look at unlike solar panels and wind turbines, and birds can live in trees as to being butchered alive by wind turbines

Nuclear Energy Vs. Solar Energy?
How Many Solar Panels Would It Take To Produce The Same Amount Of Energy As 4 Standard Nuclear Reactors? Also, How Much Energy Can Be Produced From Uranium-235? Are There Any Hazardous By-Products Associated With Solar Energy?

It is a complex issue to compare and contrast between nuclear and solar energy. Both have advantages and disadvantages, however; the solar energy involved with least hazard in comparison to the nuclear power. You can figure out how much damages caused by recent nuclear accidents and the caused of health hazards and side effects of various cancers and diseases. It is impossible to process the same amount of energy by solar panels to 4 standard reactors. However, it only could by imaginary of many millions of solar panels with every big plant. The following web with many articles provide you the chances to find out the answer yourself.

Everything About Solar Energy!!!?
In School I Have To Say Why Solar Energy Is Better Than All Other Alternative Energy Sources, Which Are Hydroelectric, Wind, And Geothermal. Can You Tell Me Everything I Need To Know About Solar Energy? How Solar Panels Work, How Much They Cost, Can They Break. I Also Need To Know Advantages Of Solar Energy And Disadvantages Of Others. Thank You!

I'm going to assume that this is a debate or panel discussion of some kind, and that you're supposed to advocate for solar.

To do that well, you need to know the strengths of the other technologies, not just the weaknesses. You will have to answer to their strengths, and also defend when they attack your weaknesses.

Without qualifications, solar is NOT better than any of the others listed. Solar is better in some situations. If we're talking about national energy generation, any of the others might have an advantage. If we're talking about what someone can put on their house, solar heat and solar electric is often the only thing that works. Most people don't have a creek or river that they can dam for hydroelectric power, and most people don't have a huge open field in the back yard with steady wind. Even fewer live right over a hot spot where there will be enough heat to generate steam. But even if solar is the only alternative, that doesn't mean it makes sense, if one lives in the forest, or very far north.

The main disadvantages of solar are cost, and that it doesn't work at night or rainy days. The intermittent issue is solved by having a backup system. Virtually all solar electric in residences today is installed *alongside* the grid, not instead of it. There are no batteries. If the solar doesn't provide enough, the grid makes up the rest. If the solar is generating more than needed, the excess is sold to the power company. Even if solar doesn't provide 100% of the house's energy, it still helps. With solar heat, there is a reservoir in the house, and if the sky is dark for too many days, a gas or electric heater takes over.

As for cost, even without any subsidies, solar electric is cheaper per energy unit (kilowatt-hour) than grid electricity in some places, such as Hawaii and most of California. Grid electricity is cheaper to make at the source, but by the time it's distributed over lines to a home, and all the taxes and fees are added, it costs several times what it took to generate. This is why a small solar electric system mounted right on a home can compete. Your competition may bring up old data on the price of solar - be sure to get recent quotes from an actual company in your area. Solar panels are 1/5 the price of what they cost 7 years ago.

You may hear an argument about solar spoiling vast areas of the environment. That would be a central generation plant. Instead of a 500,000 kilowatt plant, argue for 5 kW systems - 100,000 of them - each installed on a home's roof, which is not hosting much of an ecosystem, anyway. 100,000 systems - this is not far from what is installed in California each and every year.

Of course solar panels can break. But just about anything on a house can break, too, from a dishwasher to a leaky roof. Panels today generally come with a 25-year warranty, which gives an idea of how confident the manufacturers are. There are no moving parts, meaning less need for maintenance, and less failure. As an analogy, compare the wiring in your house to the engine of a car. Which needs more care, and which is more likely to break down?
