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 homeowner to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, washing clothing, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are substantial, lots of residents discover that the benefit, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy

With a solar panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your energy bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.
#2 Earn a great return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the finest ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs cost savings, the typical American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the past ten years, domestic electrical energy costs have increased by approximately 3 percent each year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect against unforeseeable boosts in electricity costs. If you're an organisation or homeowner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise assists you much better forecast and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home value
Numerous research studies have found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and offer quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for homes geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key component of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price changes in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry 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 country. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.

Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Lots of house owners decide to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The energy companies are infamous for their changing and unreliable electricity prices. There is plainly an upward trend.
With solar panels and easy math, we can calculate just how much electricity will be generated, and most notably, at exactly what price, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
What Are Problems Of Fossil Fuels And The Advantages Of Solar Energy.?
What Are The Pros And Cons Of Solar Energy With Respect To Cost, Impact On The Environment, Availability Etc.
There are several problems with fossil fuels. They are a limited commodity, they cause pollution when burned, and they are destructive to drill for or mine.
Solar energy is a growing technology right now. People who have solar panels on their houses often generate more electricity than they can even use, and in some places they can sell it back to the power companies and make a profit while not paying for electricity.
At present, solar panels are expensive to buy, but this will change as more people buy them, just like any other technology.
For the environment, I would guess that solar energy is almost completely harmless. I don't know what kind of chemicals that are required for making solar panels, but once they are produced, solar energy uses a virtually unlimited energy source that is clean to harvest and gives off no emissions.
Can I Hard Wire Various Inverters And Solar Panels To A Deep Cycle Marine Battery?
Using A 12V Marine Battery, 550Cca, 140 Reserve Capacity. I Want To Use A Cheap Solar Panel, But Can I Hard Wire The Two? If So, How Many Watts Must The Solar Panel Put Out To Be Efficient?
What you need is the amp-hour rating of the battery. The rest are meaningless. I know battery manufacturers try to hide the meaningful numbers, but they are needed.
If I assume a 100 amp-hour capacity for the battery, which is a large one, that equates to about 1kW-hour storage.
You cannot hard wire them, unless the solar panel is so small that it will just trickle charge the battery. In that case, you need at least a rectifier, 1N4001, between the panels and the battery to prevent the battery from discharging through the panel when there is no sun. You would need a panel that can supply at least 16 volts in that case.
For a larger panel you need a charge controller in the middle to prevent overcharging the battery. This is for panels in the range of 30 watts on up.
What do you mean by "efficient" ?
Bought A House With A Galvanised Iron Roof, Will It Be Very Noisy? I'M Putting 3 K/W Of Solar Panels On.?
I'M Assuming It Will It Be Horribly Noisy When It Rains. Hopefully The Solar Panels I'M Installing Will Lessen The Noise? Any Thoughts Or Advice Would Be Appreciated.
that's so funny... many people actually prefer them because they find the sound of the rain falling on them SOOTHING. it's a little like living near the ocean and complaining about the noisy surf.
How Can I Tell If My Solar Light Is Working?
If I Put A 'Charged' Battery In It, It Will Light-Up After Dark. But, I Don't Think The 'Solar Panel' Is Charging The Battery! Is There A Way I Can Check It, Without Getting Too Complicated?
You know how to use a volt meter on a battery? Try it on the terminals of the solar panel in direct sunlight.
And make sure the voltage from the solar panel is greater than the battery.
How Easy Would It Be To Build A Small Solar Collector That Would Help Heat My House?
I Have Heard That These Can Be Built Fairly Easy And Could Have A Blower Added On Them To Help Heat A House. Does Anyone Know Where Plans Could Be Bought At Or Where I Could Find More Information About Something Like This?
here are some of the links for building a solar panel. A friend of mine and I built one to heat his pool on top of his garage and it works wonderfully.
