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 house owners to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, washing clothing, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, many homeowners find that the convenience, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically reduce or even remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a property owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can comprise a big part of your monthly costs. With a photovoltaic 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 consume, solar will reduce your utility expenses and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity bill cost savings, the average American house owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the previous 10 years, residential electrical power prices have actually increased by approximately 3 percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're an organisation or property owner with ever-changing capital, going solar also helps you better projection and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home or business value
Multiple research studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher home worths and sell faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, need for properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
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 electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost variations in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a terrific 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 reduce that number. A normal residential photovoltaic panel system will eliminate 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are important elements of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that opt to operate properly. Organisations are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of consumer getting decisions, creating goodwill and improving business results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Many homeowners pick to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This means that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar company for electricity-- 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 energy business are infamous for their changing and unreliable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic mathematics, we can determine just how much electrical power will be produced, and most notably, at exactly what rate, 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.
- 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

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 Are Rain And Solar Energy Important Inputs Into A Woodland Ecosystem?
Generally rain and solar energy (sunlight) are the only inputs to a woodland ecosystem. They support the growth of the plants and trees which in turn support all the other life (e.g. bacteria, worms, nematodes, fungi, insects, animals). These other life forms also use rain and sunlight directly. Trees and plants also use nutrients in the soil to help in their growth but these nutrients are recycled when the plant or tree reached old age and dies.
Woodland ecosystems are so efficient at converting rain and sunlight into growth that it is often possible to harvest reasonable amounts of wood from such systems in a sustainable manner. Hunting can also provide sustainable food. But care is needed to avoid over-exploitation and damage to sustainability.

What Are The Alternate Energy Sources And Why Should We Use Them?
I Need To Know What The Alternate Energy Sources Are And The Good And Bad Points.....
alternative energy sources:
Something related with the ocean and the waves
No bad effects on environment unlike the others
What Is Avg Energy Consumption In A Green Home?
Answers Should Obviously Vary. And What Is The Average Cost Of Energy (Per Month Or Per Year) In A Green Home. I'M Doing Some Research For A Project That'S Going To Take Place Thank You
Hi Koko. Your answers will obviously vary a great deal, and not just because homes do, but your definition of a green home will not be the same as other peoples.
Our home has a 1.4 kw solar array and a 1kw wind turbine for electricity. We heat primarily with wood, but have solar passive heat and a propane furnace. Our hot water comes partially from a solar preheater, and the rest from a propane tankless water heater. On average, our electric bill is about $9 USD per month, and we use around $200 of propane per year for heating, cooking and hot water. I would say generally our solar, wind and wood heating make up about 80% of our homes entire energy usage, and the rest comes from the utility or fuel company in our area. Good luck in your research, and take care, Rudydoo
Why Is Solar Energy Considered To Be Renewable Energy?
Because the sun is going to come up tomorrow just like it did yesterday.
Where Does The Energy That Powers Electrical Appliances Come From?
Can Someone Tell Me?
Add natural gas and oil to the first answer. A very small amount is made from trash/garbage recycling. Visit California to see wind power and solar power in action producing electrical power.
