Solar Power is the new trend in Nevada
“Everyday people all over the USA are embracing the power of the Sun, and Nevada is now part of this global Solar Energy movement.”
Solar power is providing a cleaner, more affordable alternative to electricity generated by coal and gas and the number of solar homes is rapidly increasing, demand for solar is stronger than ever because consumers are realizing significant savings while promoting the use of clean, renewable power in their communities.
The facts are: concentrations of Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere are rising at about 2 to 3 parts per million annually, and for the first time, it average more than 400 parts per million in March of 2015, almost reaching the cap established by the UN of 450 parts per million. With this levels, pollution and green house gasses are causing serious harm to our planet.
This problem can ultimately be cracked by making clean and renewable energy available to the masses.
The great news is that Solar energy deployment has increased at a record pace in the United States and throughout the world in 2008.
Today, the residential solar market is growing at a record-breaking pace. According to the newly-released U.S. Solar Market Insight report Q1 2015, the market segment increased 76 percent from this time last year. By 2016, industry projections forecast enough clean solar energy in the U.S. to power 8 million homes.
The use of solar power is expanding rapidly across the United States. By the end of 2014, the United States had 20,500 megawatts (MW) of cumulative solar electric capacity, enough to power four million average U.S. homes. This success is the outcome of federal, state and local programs that are working in concert to make solar power accessible to more Americans, thereby cleaning our air, protecting our health, and hedging against volatile electricity prices.
As of the end of 2014, 20 cities – representing just 0.1 percent of U.S. land area – account for 6.5 percent of solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity in the United States. The 65 cities in this report have installed 1.3 gigawatts (GW) of solar PV capacity – more solar PV than was installed in the entire country at the end of 2009. Los Angeles leads the nation in total installed solar PV capacity, followed by San Diego, Phoenix, Indianapolis and San Jose.
Nevada has vast deserts, and with his clear blue skies, beautiful flat landscapes and Sun shining most of the year, has the perfect scenario for the implementation of Solar Energy and is capable of providing a great amount of solar power.
Free Solar Panels are available in Nevada for residential use. Solar companies in Nevada have a very successful sales model called PPA (Power Purchase Agreement); with this model the customer only pays for the power that the solar system produces at a cheaper rate per Kilowatt than the rates from Nevada power.
Every day more Nevadans are harnessing solar power for residential use, without having to put any money down for the solar system or installation, without paying for any maintenance or repairs allowing them to save money in their electric utility bill and help the environment at the same time.
Now is the time to make use of the solar power and help Nevada go green.
