Solar energy has the potential to revolutionize our world, offering a limitless and eco-friendly power source. Though the technology is still in development, it promises to be the ultimate solution for both America and the world in the coming years.
The untapped potential of solar energy is staggering. Estimates suggest an annual solar energy output of 49,837 exajoules, a magnitude surpassing all existing energy generation systems on Earth. As homeowners and businesses, capturing this immense energy source presents a unique challenge and opportunity.
There are two main trajectories in solar technology: photovoltaic and concentrated solar power. Both offer promising investment opportunities for those looking to enter the solar industry.
Photovoltaics is a familiar concept to most people, involving the conversion of sunlight into electricity through solar panels installed on buildings and homes. While solar cells were first developed in the 1880s, they have come a long way in terms of efficiency. In the United States, early solar cells operated at just 5% efficiency, but by 2012, that number had exceeded 20%. With emerging technology, efficiency levels now reach over 40%.
Manufacturing of photovoltaic cells and panels is primarily conducted in China, with increasing production in the United States. The technology has become more affordable for consumers and businesses, especially with the availability of tax credits. Our clients have taken advantage of various opportunities, such as becoming resellers of solar cells. This straightforward business model is easy to understand and explain to clients, along with its legal implications.
Additionally, the ongoing development of solar technology presents an excellent opportunity for our clients to acquire intellectual property rights. This can be achieved through purchasing existing patents or filing new ones. Our IP department stands ready to provide assistance in this area.
Concentrated solar power, on the other hand, offers a centralized energy generation system. Developed in the 1800s, this technology harnesses the sun’s power by focusing mirrors to boil water and spin turbines. With advancements in mirror refinement and improved technology, this method remains viable. Unlike decentralized solar energy applications, concentrated solar power works like a traditional power generating facility. It produces immense amounts of electricity that can be distributed directly to consumers or via utility companies.
However, homeowners must be cautious when installing solar panels, as there is a risk of falling victim to fraudulent contracts and leases. In our solar practice, we also handle cases related to solar scams. Our team of experienced solar panel lawyers is dedicated to helping homeowners who have been deceived by deficient and fraudulent solar energy panel installations. We urge homeowners to be wary of false promises, such as exaggerated savings on their electric bills or substantial tax rebates.
These different approaches to solar energy require distinct business and legal solutions. From land use and regulatory approval to IP protection, our team at Garrity Traina is well-equipped to guide you through the solar energy development process. We have the expertise to address critical areas such as land use, regulations, technology, IP, and the overall structure of your solar venture.
