The Future of Solar Energy

As we wrap up the decade, let’s reflect on how much solar energy systems improved and why solar is they way of the future.

Is Sunlight Enough?

The amount of sunlight that hits the Earth in one hour provides more power than the entire world consumes in one year [1]. To help us wrap our heads around this concept, here are some facts from the U.S. Department of Energy [2]:

  • Each hour 430 quintillion Joules of energy from the sun hits the earth. 430 quintillion is the number 430 with 18 zeroes!
  • In contrast, all humans combined use 410 quintillion Joules in a year.
  • The average American home used 39 billion Joules of electricity in 2013 [3].

As you can see, the sun produces a LOT of energy! We have this source of unlimited clean energy to use for solar panels. As technology improves, we can capture the sun’s energy and produce efficient power for millions of homes across the nation.

Is the Technology Realistic?

Solar photovoltaic (PV) cells, also referred to as solar cells, are responsible for converting sunlight into electricity. These solar cells are made up of several parts, but the most important element used in the cells is silicon. Silicon is a conductive element – when light hits a silicon cell, the electrons are set into motion and thus generate electricity. This process is called the photovoltaic effect.

Silicon is responsible for generating the electricity, and the cost of these silicon-based cells continues to decrease. Silicon will remain the most popular option over the next few years, which helps make solar power affordable for the general public.

Why Now?

As we enter into 2020, it is critical to consider ways we can reduce our carbon footprint. Solar power has the highest environmental benefit of all the energy sources because it reduces carbon emissions and greenhouse gasses, which ultimately improves air pollution. This energy is produced with virtually no environmental impact, unlike fossil fuels.

Sunlight is available nearly everywhere, and we should utilize its natural abundance! Green energy can be collected locally in the United States, liberating the country from its dependence on other nations for obtaining fossil fuels.

2 million homes in the Unites States have already switched to solar power [4]. Technology is only improving, making it easier than ever to switch to solar energy.

Is Solar Power Right for Me?

Solar energy is an exciting way to generate cleaner, price-protected electricity. At Momentum Solar, we know switching to solar power is a big investment. That is why we want to ensure all our customers are informed in all aspects before they make their decision.

Here are some of the biggest factors to consider when you are looking into purchasing a solar energy system for your home.

Financing Options

Solar energy is a great long-term investment to make because it can save you thousands throughout the lifespan of your system. As technology improves, solar is becoming more affordable to many U.S. residents thanks to rising costs for traditional electricity as well as federal and statewide incentives. Momentum solar also offers a variety of solar financing options that our customers may take advantage of, such as solar loans and Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs).

Size and Configuration of Your Home

Solar panels from Momentum Solar have a lifespan of 25 years or more, helping residents save thousands of dollars in energy savings. Before jumping into a solar agreement, however, homeowners should assess the conditions of their roof. Most roofs last about 20 years, so if your roof is at the end of its lifecycle you should consider replacing it before you install panels.

Homeowners should also consider the angle and size of their roof before they commit to installing solar panels. For optimal generation, roofs should be angled to receive ample amount of sunlight. The size f your roof, direction its facing and other factors can affect this process in some cases. Homeowners should know that the panels do not need to be directly receiving sunlight at all times, but they need to be able to receive some sunlight for homeowners to reap all the amazing benefits.

Energy Consumption

Those interested in solar energy should also consider their home’s energy consumption to determine what size solar panel system is necessary. We recommend looking at your energy consumption for each month and determining why some months’ bills are higher than others. Our solar specialists will consider your home’s dimensions and energy consumption to design a solar panel system specifically for your needs.

Location

Perhaps one of the most important factors to consider is the amount of sunlight your neighborhood regularly receives. More sunlight results in more energy production, which is why sunny areas like the south tend to produce more energy than Northwest areas of the country. While states that receive less sunlight can still produce solar energy to power their homes, they may have to install more panels to generate enough electricity.

Rebates and Incentives

Tax credits and rebates can significantly reduce the cost of installation! A Momentum Solar specialist can help you through the paperwork and reviewing which incentives you qualify for.

The federal tax credit provides homeowners with a 26% tax credit of the price of your system beginning in 2020. Multiple states also offer their own tax credits and rebates.

Why Should I Use Solar Energy?

Solar energy is part of an important societal shift to cleaner resources and away from fossil fuels. Green energy can replace fossil fuel in all major areas of power, such as electricity, water, space heating and fuel for motor vehicles. There are so many reasons why people are transitioning from fossil fuels to solar energy – here’s why you should consider making the switch too!

How does solar power work?

Solar power is harnessed energy from the sun that is converted into thermal or electrical energy. It’s the cleanest and most abundant resource in the world because sunlight is natural and replenishable. Fossil fuels, like coal and oil, are finite and harmful to the atmosphere due to their contribution to the greenhouse effect.

Photovoltaic (PV) cells, also referred to as solar cells, are responsible for converting sunlight into electricity. Solar panels are devices comprised of many solar cells that collect sunlight. When light hits a solar cell, electrons are set into motion and thus generate electricity. This process is called the photovoltaic effect [1].

Why should I switch?

Here are a few of the main reasons why millions nationwide have joined the solar movement:

It’s cleaner: Solar power has the highest environmental benefit of all the energy sources because it reduces carbon emissions and greenhouse gasses, which ultimately improves air pollution. This energy is produced with virtually no environmental impact, unlike fossil fuels.

Sunlight is available nearly everywhere, and we should utilize its natural abundance! Green energy can be collected locally in the United States, liberating the country from its dependence on other nations for obtaining fossil fuels.

It’s economically beneficial: Contrary to popular belief, solar energy can save you money on your electric bill in the long run! Most homeowners experience thousands in savings over their solar energy system’s lifespan.

There are also plenty of tax incentives and rebates that homeowners with solar power can take advantage of. The federal solar tax credit allows solar energy owners to deduct 30% of the cost of installing the solar system from their federal taxes. It is one of the most critical incentives for clean energy in the United States implemented by the federal government today. This incentive will be decreasing in 2020 incrementally, making today your last chance to make the switch!

It’s the future: 2 million homes in the Unites States have already switched to solar power [2]. Technology is only improving, making it easier than ever to switch to solar energy.

Climate Change Solutions

Global warming, also known as climate change, is one of the largest issues our society is facing today. If we keep emitting pollutants into our atmosphere as we are now, we will irreversibly damage our planet, ruin our ecosystems and make the earth inhabitable.

We can still make a difference if we act now. We have the technology and knowledge to make important changes to our lifestyles that can change the future for the better.

What is global warming and why is it happening?

Global warming describes the gradual increase of the overall temperature of the earth’s atmosphere. This is due to greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide and methane trapping the sun’s heat in the atmosphere.

Carbon dioxide and the other greenhouse gases are the main drivers of climate change. We have been emitting a dangerous amount of these gases for over 50 years, incrementally increasing these emissions over time. Climate change cannot be stopped completely, but it can at least be slowed down if we reduce our carbon footprint.

How can we cut our emissions?

According to the Union of Concerned Scientists, we need to reach “net zero” carbon emissions by 2050 or sooner. “Net zero means that, on balance, no more carbon is dumped into the atmosphere than is taken out” [1].

This is achievable if we rethink how we produce and consume electricity. According to the Solar Energy Industries Association, the electric power sector is one of the largest contributors of greenhouse gasses to the United States, representing 28% of all emissions [2].

Solar power is a cleaner alternative to fossil fuels because it produces virtually zero carbon emissions. It is critical to our nationwide efforts to reduce our carbon footprint and slow down the effects of climate change.

Why solar power?

Solar power is harnessed energy from the sun that is converted into thermal or electrical energy. It’s the cleanest and most abundant resource in the world because sunlight is natural and replenishable. Fossil fuels, like coal and oil, are finite and harmful to the atmosphere due to their contribution to the greenhouse effect.

Since solar energy systems are powered by the sun’s energy, this technology produces emission-free electricity. For every home that switches to cleaner energy, we are significantly reducing our carbon footprint. These technologies are crucial in our efforts to reverse the damage we have inflicted on our planet.

Will the Temperature Affect My Solar Panels?

A very common myth about solar panels is that they only work in warmer areas. This is simply not true! Solar energy is more reliable today than ever before thanks to improving technologies and growth in the industry. Utility experts can use new tools to maintain a consistent flow of energy, even during times when sunlight is not its strongest.

With these advancements in technology, we can achieve a stable amount of electricity while reducing our carbon emissions. Read on to learn how solar panels work even in the colder months.

How does solar work?

Solar power is harnessed energy from the sun that is converted into electricity. It’s the cleanest and most abundant resource in the world because sunlight is natural and replenishable.

We often forget that the sun’s power has little to do with the temperature outside. Solar panels absorb the sun’s light energy, not heat, to generate electricity. Just because it is approaching freezing weather outside does not mean the sun can’t shine just as bright as it does in summer months!

There’s no need to worry about your solar energy system in the winter months. They will still generate plenty of electricity!

What if there’s not any sunlight?

Since sunlight levels vary, solar energy systems typically are connected to the grid to ensure that there are steady levels of power. When sunlight is low, grid professionals can accommodate using a variety of tools in order to provide a consistent amount of electricity. The following improvements allow operators to ensure a constant flow of energy in solar homes:

Accurate Forecasts: Grid operators can adjust electricity sources when necessary thanks to detailed weather reports. These professionals can accurately forecast solar outputs, therefore modifying the grid as needed on days when sunlight is low. This ensures that homes with solar energy maintain a consistent amount of power throughout the day, no matter what the weather is like.

A Dynamic Grid: No energy source is perfectly reliable – even fossil fuels like coal and natural gas are susceptible to interruption. Therefore, electricity grids are made to handle these disruptions by using reserve power sources when necessary. Most solar panels still work through the community’s grid system even though the panels produce their own energy.  If solar power does diminish, grids will use other sources to fill the gap.

What if it snows?

Snow flurries and light snow falls have virtually no impact on your solar power system’s ability to produce electricity. Typically, light layers of snow easily blow off in the wind. Even if this is not the case, light can still scatter through thin coatings, and therefore light can reach the panels to generate electricity.

Heavier snow can temporarily prevent your panels from generating power since light cannot get through thicker layers. However, heavier snow can clean your panels improving efficiency in the future. This is why we advise our customers to sit back and relax when snow accumulates on their panels.

That’s right – let it be! We highly suggest that homeowners wait for the snow to melt off on its own. Once the snow starts to melt and slide off the panel, any debris that was on the panel is gently wiped away. This natural power wash will leave your panels as good as new!

If you have any questions about your solar panel system, call us at 1-800-MOMENTUM or visit momentumsolar.com for more information.

 

Solar in a Winter Wonderland

Welcome to the winter season! It might be getting colder, but the sun is still shining bright and our systems are still operating at full capacity! Don’t believe me? Here are some facts from the Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy [1] explaining how panels can thrive in winter weather:

PV panels produce useful power throughout all four seasons.

Most people assume that panels are most efficient during warmer seasons, but panels work year-round! Solar photovoltaic (PV) panels work throughout all four seasons as long as there’s adequate access to sunlight.

Light snow has little impact on the panel’s electricity production.

Snow flurries and light snow falls have virtually no impact on your solar power system’s ability to produce electricity. Typically, light layers of snow easily blow off in the wind. Even if this is not the case, light can still scatter through thin coatings, and therefore light can reach the panels to generate electricity.

Snow cleans the surface of debris from PV modules as it melts away.

12 Ways You Can Save Energy This Winter

As the days get colder, we start using more energy than we realize. Here are some practical ways you can stay warm and eco-friendly!

1. Keep Internal Doors Closed

By closing the doors inside your home, you can trap heat in each room and use less energy trying to warm up your house. For extra insulation, use a thick rug or towel to cover the gap underneath the door, keeping heat from escaping even more.

2. Cook to Your Advantage

Try cooking more than one meal at once when using your oven. The oven heats up every shelf, so you might as well use it to your advantage! Not only can you prep for the week, but you’ll also save energy.

3. Keep it Cozy

Even turning your thermostat down by one degree can result in energy savings. Dress a little warmer – your energy bill will thank you later!

4. Thermostat Consistency

Turning the heat on and off constantly will use more energy than if you always keep the heat consistently low. It takes a lot of energy to warm up your home, so when you turn it off that energy is going to waste.

5. Get a Winter Throw

A fuzzy blanket doesn’t just add to your winter aesthetic – it can make a huge difference on colder nights. Instead of blasting the heat, bundle up!

6. Watch Your Water Pressure

A shower head that uses a lot of pressure can use more water than a bath. Use less energy by lowering the pressure setting or getting a shower head that is energy efficient.

7. Stock Up the Fridge

A full fridge is easier to keep cool than an empty one! When food is compacted together, the fridge doesn’t need to use as much energy to keep the temperature down.

8. Air-Dry Clothes

Surprisingly, clothes hang dry rather quickly when the heat is already on! Take advantage of the energy already being used to keep your house warm to air dry clothes. Kill two birds with one stone!

9. Don’t Block the Heat

Try to keep furniture out of the way of your radiator or vents. Sofas, dressers and other items absorb the heat when they are in the way, making your room feel much colder than if the space in front of your heater was open.

10. Wash on Cold

Most of a washing machine’s energy is spent heating the water. Try washing more of your clothes on cold – this will save you significant amounts of energy and money!

11. Unplug

Remember to unplug your appliances and electronics while they aren’t being used. These “vampire plugs” continue to use electricity even when they are turned off, wasting so much energy.

12. Switch to Solar

Installing solar panels can dramatically cut your energy bills while significantly reducing your carbon footprint! Plus, homeowners can take advantage of many solar incentives and rebates to help save even more.

If you want to reduce your monthly bills, take advantage of tax credits and help improve the environment then solar energy may be right for you. Visit our website at www.momentumsolar.com or call 1-888-MOMENTUM for more information.

Momentum Solar Is All In

Here at Momentum, we genuinely care about how our work helps the environment. We are proud to help our customers reduce their carbon footprint by supplying them with clean energy. In fact, this philosophy is so deeply rooted into our core values that we have created All In, our own sustainability initiative.

All In is comprised of ambassadors from all Momentum Solar offices nationwide. We currently have over 70 ambassadors, and we are still growing! These ambassadors take part in weekly meetings, outreach events, charity collections and more.

Environmental Activism

All In members are passionate about practicing proper disposal of single-use plastics and other waste items. Lucy Jaramillo, an ambassador from Momentum’s South Plainfield office, discussed the conditions of the beach during All In’s inaugural clean up event. When asked what was most commonly found, she answered, “plastic of any type. Plastic straws, some cigarettes, but mostly single-use plastic items. There were also a lot of balloon strings.”

This is exactly why All In ambassadors feel the call to action. “It’s an important part of my lifestyle to protect our little planet” said Lucy. “When this initiative was established, I saw a great opportunity to join because it’s values and goals directly affect me as well, and my lifestyle.”

Community Service

All In emphasizes sustainability in all walks of life, including sharing what we have with others who are less fortunate. The holiday season is especially an important time to think about how we can help our neighbors.

November was deemed All In’s Month of Giving. Ambassadors held a canned food drive for a local food bank near headquarters. We also directed an internal clothing drive, where a variety of clothing items were donated to the Purple Heart. Finally, we help our second office park cleanup during lunch hours to remove any litter found around our office buildings.

Syed Rizvi, an engineer on the Design Team, expressed why he is so passionate about giving back to our communities. “I believe a lot of underprivileged people tend to get ignored. They tend to be only remembered around this time of year, so I try my best to donate as much as possible throughout the year, especially this time of year because it’s probably the best time to do more.”

Sustainability is more than upcycling; it is about sharing the things we have with others who are not as fortunate. “An individual is a product of society, and society is a product of an individual’s actions” Syed said. “The more good we do, the more good there will be in society.”

“I wanted to become an All In Ambassador because I care about the environment. From a scientific perspective, being an engineer, I think there’s a lot that can be done fairly easily to make a positive impact.”

Is there a park in your neighborhood that is riddled with litter? A charity whose mission you feel strongly about? Reach out to us today at marketing@momentumsolar.com to partner with All In and help improve your community!”

How Powerful is the Sun?

Solar power is a clean and abundant resource that can provide our world’s electricity for generations to come. It is hard to grasp just how powerful our sun is and how much of this power we can take advantage of. Let’s take a closer look at the science behind the sun and what this means for the future of solar power!

Here Are The Facts

The amount of sunlight that hits the Earth in one hour provides more power than the entire world consumes in one year [1]. To help us wrap our heads around this concept, here are some facts from the U.S. Department of Energy [2]:

  • Each hour 430 quintillion Joules of energy from the sun hits the earth. 430 quintillion is the number 430 with 18 zeroes!
  • In contrast, all humans combined use 410 quintillion Joules in a year.
  • The average American home used 39 billion Joules of electricity in 2013 [3].

As you can see, the sun produces a LOT of energy! We have this source of unlimited clean energy to use for solar panels. As technology improves, we can capture the sun’s energy and produce efficient power for millions of homes across the nation.

Environmental Benefits of Solar Power

Fossil fuels are finite resources that are expensive and harmful. They will continue to rise in price as our supply of these resources decreases, and they continually emit harmful chemicals into the atmosphere.

Power that is generated from the sun is natural, ample and environmentally friendly. Here are some of the benefits of solar provided by the Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy [4] :

Solar Power Helps Curb Pollution: Solar can prevent $167 billion in health and environmental damages just by decreasing air pollution.

Solar Power Helps Mitigate Climate Change: Reducing our carbon footprint could save $259 billion in global climate change damages.

Solar Power Improves Health Outcomes: Reducing carbon emissions and pollutants from power plants can prevent unnecessary health costs and save more than 25,000 lives.

Solar Power Reduces Water Scarcity: By reducing water consumption used in traditional electricity generation, water consumption will drop in 36 states. This is equivalent to hydrating 1.3 million households.

How To Take Advantage of the Sun’s Power

Solar energy is part of an important societal shift to green energy and away from fossil fuels. Green energy can replace fossil fuel in all major areas of power, such as electricity, water, space heating and fuel for motor vehicles. There are so many reasons why people are transitioning from fossil fuels to solar energy –you should consider making the switch too!

Momentum Solar is an owner-operated company committed to delivering a first-class experience to our customers through their journey to cleaner, price-protected electricity generated by the sun.

Why Is Solar Energy So Important?

With today’s heated discussions about climate change and how it’s negatively affecting people worldwide, you may be wondering if solar energy can really help reduce our carbon emissions.

We’re here to explain the science behind solar energy. Keep reading to see just how important solar power is and why it is the resource of the future.

How Does Solar Power Work?

Solar power is harnessed energy from the sun that is converted into thermal or electrical energy. It’s the cleanest and most abundant resource in the world because sunlight is natural and replenishable. Fossil fuels, like coal and oil, are finite and harmful to the atmosphere due to their contribution to the greenhouse effect.

Solar photovoltaic (PV) cells, also referred to as solar cells, are responsible for converting sunlight into electricity. These solar cells are made up of several parts, but the most important element used in the cells is silicon. Silicon is a conductive element – when light hits a silicon cell, the electrons are set into motion and thus generate electricity. This process is called the photovoltaic effect [1].

Can Solar Really Help Fight Climate Change?

Our carbon emissions have dramatically increased in the past few decades, which in turn increases the threat of climate change. In fact, the electric power sector is one of the largest contributors of greenhouse gases in the nation, representing nearly 28% of all emissions [2].

Since solar energy systems are powered by the sun’s energy, this technology produces emission-free electricity. For every home that switches to cleaner energy, we are significantly reducing our carbon footprint. These technologies are crucial in our efforts to reverse the damage we have inflicted on our planet.

Doesn’t Solar Result in More Pollution?

All kinds of energy structures require energy to build. In order to build solar panels there is a certain amount of energy spent in the production process, but the investment is small if you look at the energy return on investment (EROI) [3]. This ratio compares the amount of energy it took to manufacture the equipment to the energy that is then produced. Most PV systems will provide a net gain of up to 29 years of pollution-free energy generation. Therefore, an investment of 1-4 years’ worth of energy output is worthwhile because solar systems can provide as much as 30 years or more of clean energy [4].

Are There Other Benefits for Homes That Switch to Solar?

There are financial benefits for switching to solar power as well! Many people choose solar power because:

It’s a good investment: Switching to solar energy helps homeowners save thousands on their energy bills in the long run. Homeowners with solar panels enjoy consistently lower utility bills monthly, which is a nice luxury compared to the spikes in traditional energy bills.

Homeowners receive tax credit: The federal solar tax credit allows owners of solar energy systems to deduct 26% of the cost of installation from their federal taxes. Since solar panels generate excess energy, homeowners are credited for the electricity that is sent back to the grid and shared throughout their neighborhood. This tax incentive will start to decrease at the end of 2020, so now is the best time to make the switch!
