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 air conditioner, washing clothes, watching TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, lots of property owners discover that the benefit, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly reduce or even eliminate your electrical expenses
Whether you're a property owner, service, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can comprise a big part of your monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your utility bills and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity costs cost savings, the typical American homeowner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the past 10 years, property electrical power prices have gone up by an average of three percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're a service or property owner with rising and falling capital, going solar also helps you better projection and handle your costs.

Several studies have discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater home values and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, need for properties geared up with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is an excellent method to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A common domestic photovoltaic panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Numerous homeowners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This implies that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You merely pay the solar service provider for electricity-- 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 Investment
The energy business are notorious for their fluctuating and unreliable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward trend.
With solar panels and easy math, we can calculate how much electricity will be created, and most importantly, at exactly what price, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
I Need Help With A Science Fair Project...How Would I Conduct An Experiment Comparing Wind Vs. Solar Energy?
Please Help Me! I'M Overwhelmed And Don'T Know About This Topic. I Can'T Change It, It'S Too Late. No One In The Family Will Help Me And Say To Figure It Out Myself. How Can I Compare It Or Even Find Out How Much Energy It Produces? How Will I Get It To Conduct Energy And How Will I Build It? Please Help Me!!!!!!!
Try Youtube, or Google search, but to build a model You need Solar cells, a sm. generator, a little windmill, or fan blades and a fan to blow on it and a bright light to shine on the cell, then get a volt meter, and test each one to see which one puts out the most volts, Good luck,,
Radio Shack may have some of those items
Liberals, Are You Going To Start Demanding Free Government Carbon Offset Credits If Obama Makes Workers Pay?
If Obama Makes Everyone Pay Carbon Offset Credits...Will Liberals Try To Make Them Part Of The Welfare Package Or Will They Stop Driving And Using Air Conditioning?
I think that it is a mute point. I think that carbon offset credits are useless - feel good measures that will allow polluters to continue to pollute while simultaneously advertising how much they are concerned for the environment.. "Just Look at our Carbon Offset Credits People!".
Plus, it is useless to harm the US economy by enacting draconian environmental laws - while China and India pollute like crazy.
Basically the only thing that can save us is the displacement of fossil fuels by new technology. So if any efforts are made, it needs to be in the arena of research into technologies that can actually work just as well as fossil fuels. I think this eventually happen because fossil fuels power heat engines.. and heat engines are terribly inefficient. about 8 Billion Quads of solar energy hit the earth each year - the entire human race uses about 400 Quads of energy per year.. do the math. Our future is solar. But it is debatable whether we will survive long enough to see a solar utopia.
For me, the issue isn't fossil fuels - but National Security. I think it is just stupid to put all of our eggs into one energy basket. We are heavily dependent on places like Saudi Arabia and Venezuela for oil. And drilling more US oil is only going to make a TINY bump in our import vs domestic production capacity. In a few years the world is going to hit the wall of a peak in the worlds ability to supply petroleum. Prices are going to go thru the roof again. And with the spike in energy price - comes a decrease in profitability of our businesses and corporations = another recession. So it is just insanely stupid to continue relying so much on petroleum. That is why the US military is spending big bucks via DARPA to transform the military into a biofueled military machine. Because unlike republicans and democrats.. it's a matter of life or death for the military to be able to fuel their tanks and planes.
We've built a civilization around fossil fuels - and none of that is going to change on a personal level - regardless of how green you think you are, or how SUV lovin conservative you think you are. We exist in a world created and fueled by petroleum - the only thing that can change that fact is something better than petroleum. The technology is coming, but will it arrive in time?
What Are The Advantages Of Using Solar Energy?
Pretty Much Sums It Up Up There ^^ Lol
Solar energy is renewable unlike the convential sources which would exhaust sooner rather than later. Hence most believe that solar energy is the future of the world. However one cannot always rely on them, as the perfect equipments to trap them

Do You Think We Need A Moon Colony?
Do we need one? We could live without one just fine.
Would a lunar colony be of value to us? Certainly.
One of the big advantages of a lunar colony is the fact that you have a lot of unfiltered sunlight that we could harness with solar panels and direct that energy down to Earth via microwave relay. It could turn out to be a cheap source of energy for us.
That said I feel that it needs to be a private organization that does this as we have enough problems here in the US that our government needs to fix first before we start screwing about with lunar colonies.
Is It Possible To Have A Solar House Without Giving Up Anything?
I Myself Work In The It Industry. I Use All Kinds Of Devices For Work And I Can'T Get Around It. My Family (4) Is The Same Way With Their Consumption. I *Know* That I Can Curb My Consumption And Increase My Efficiency But I'M Curious Otherwise...
Realisticly, Can Someone Run A Modern Day Home With Computers/Appliances/Home Theater And Such Using Nothing More Than Solar Or Alternative Fuel Sorces? I Don'T Mean Off The &Quot;Grid&Quot; But More Like Zero Net.
Are Solar Homes Built With This In Mind Nowadays? If I Invest In Solar Panels Et Al Will I Be Disapointed In The Result? How Much Can I Expect To Spend To Make It Work Right?
You CAN install enough solar panels in a grid tied system to be a net zero consumer, or even a net producer, averaged over time. That is only averaged over time because you will of course be a net user of grid power at night, and maybe on some cloudy winter days. The only problem is that even in a very sunny area of the country you will probably need at least $50,000 worth of solar panels and inverters to make that much power. More if your home is not highly energy efficient.
