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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioner, washing clothing, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while minimizing 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, numerous homeowners find that the convenience, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more attractive.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly minimize and even eliminate your electric bills
Whether you're a homeowner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can make up a big part of your regular monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic 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 consume, solar will decrease your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of money.
#2 Earn a great return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity bill cost savings, the average American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus increasing energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical energy costs have gone up by an average of 3 percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and protect versus unpredictable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're an organisation or homeowner with fluctuating cash circulation, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and manage your costs.
#4 Increase your house value
Several studies have found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater home values and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need 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 a key element of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price fluctuations in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a great method to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A typical property photovoltaic panel system will remove three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are necessary elements of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line results. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding services that pick to operate responsibly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of customer getting decisions, creating goodwill and improving company results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Lots of homeowners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This means that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You simply pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- 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 utility companies are notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electricity prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can calculate just how much electricity will be generated, and most importantly, at exactly what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Are The Implications Of Requiring Builders And Designers Of New Buildings To Install Solar Panels?
Short run: the price of a house will increase an may out price some people trying to buy houses. The price of solar panel and installing them on existing building will increase perhaps out pricing some who want to install them.
Long run: decrease energy consumption and lowering the price of energy compared to what it would have been without the regulation. May spur investment in panel production and technology lowering LR cost of installation perhaps leading to more existing building having panels but farther out in the future. May pull investment from other alternative energy sources slowing technological advancements in them.
A Few Questions For Someone Who Knows Much About Solar Panels?
I Have Been Looking Into Solar Panels For A Small House That I Am Building. It Would Be Great If I Could Nix A Furnace, And Use Solar Panels To Heat The House With Electric. The House Is Going To Be Less Than 1000 Square Feet. I Have Tried Looking On Google But Did Not Find Much. I Am In Canada.
Here Is What I Am Looking For
- How Much Do You Think I Can Expect To Spend On Solar Panels?
- How Long Do They Last?
- Would They Eliminate An Electricity Bill All Together?
Hi this is just my personal opinion but I think that currently solar panels are not advanced enough to really do any good. In the future maybe but right now I don't see you really saving anything. The only reason why you would use solar is to help the environment. The initial cost of getting all the equipment is going to be so much that it will take years to pay for itself. Then when it does pay for itself some parts will need to be replaced costing more money. Right now I don't think it's a good idea. But maybe in the future. Again this is just my opinion.
How Do You Get Electricity In A Rainy Day If You Have Solar Panels?
I Am Working On A Project And I Have To Build A House With Solar Panels. My Teacher Asked Me How Would I Get Solar Energy If It Is Rainy Or Cloudy? I Looked It Up But Didn'T Understand. Please Help Me!!
Solar panels convert light energy into electrical energy with the photovoltaic process. They work best when perpendicular to the incoming sunlight and with no clouds in bright sunlight. They will work at reduced efficiency if there are clouds or rain, but as long as its not dark, they will still produce "some" electricity.
That is one of the real problems with solar energy, as we expect to have electricity available on demand, regardless of day/night cycles and atmospheric conditions. Storing electricity is very inefficient, so we need hydro, nuclear,or fossil fuel energy to provide firm "on demand" energy as a base load.
If Solar Panels Are So Good, Why Do We Sell Them To Silly Americans While Building Coal Plants For Ourselves?
If the argument is that the Solyndra loan was oversold as a job creation engine, maybe that’s true. But that’s not the argument that conservatives want to make. They want to claim that green energy investments must be ended because they cannot possibly work. With a perspective like that, obviously so. But the truth is that the Solyndra bankruptcy represents 1.3% of the total green energy loans put out by the Energy Department. Solar energy, far from being doomed, is booming, and solar PV was even a net exporter to China last year. If there were a level playing field and China wasn’t subsidizing it’s solar industry across platforms at 20 times the level of the US, or if the US met that challenge with a similar level of investment, it wouldn’t be a contest. But there’s still plenty of room for a solar and greentech space in the US, regardless of one company’s troubles.
Net exporter? Yeah!
Does The Heat Bounce Back From Solar Panel? Will It Create More Global Warming If All Roofs Are Solar Paneled?
Imagine If You Put A Mirror Under The Sun, It Heats Up And The Light Is Reflected Back. How Is Solar Panel Different From This Concept? Does It Uses A Special Material So The Heat Will Not Bounce Back To The Atmosphere And Make Our Earth More Warmer Causing More Global Warming And Helping To Melt Down The Iceberg In North And South Pole? Are You A Genius? Answer My Question :P....
don k is right. except solar thermal panels absorb heat to, of course, to heat water. to even think that solar panels heat up so much to attribute to global warming has to be the most idoitic, clueless question i have ever read. we are all dumber to have read it. does your hot breath cause global warming? It gets hot under your arm pits and behind your legs, must be melting ice bergs with that body heat, right?
