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 property owner to utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, cleaning clothes, seeing TV, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, numerous property owners discover that the convenience, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly lower or perhaps eliminate your electrical bills
Whether you're a house owner, business, or not-for-profit, electricity costs can comprise a big portion of your month-to-month expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your utility bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.
#2 Make an excellent return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power bill 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 Protect versus rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy costs. In the past 10 years, property electricity prices have increased by approximately three percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and protect against unpredictable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a business or house owner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and manage your expenses.
#4 Increase your home or business value
Numerous research studies have actually found that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher home worths and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties 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 an essential part of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost variations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A common domestic solar panel system will remove 3 to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.

Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Lots of homeowners decide to finance their solar 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 takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You just pay the solar provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The energy companies are well-known for their varying and undependable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and easy math, we can calculate just how much electrical energy will be produced, and most importantly, at exactly what price, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions
How Can I Charge An Electric Car With Solar Power?
If It Takes 240 Volts To Charge An Electric Car And 8 Hrs As A Short Charge. How Large Would It Have To Be And Is It Possible To Design A Portable Solar Panel System To Store In The Car Trunk And Use It When Needed To Charge The Car When Traveling?
Please check your other question for a discussion of the size of the solar panel required to charge a vehicle here: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?... In my answer I mentioned that the charge required depends upon the size of the battery, the charging time required and the amount of usage anticipated. I gave some examples of what would be required for the Nissan Leaf. (a dashboard trickle charger, a 34sq meter daily charger or a 66 panel 20KW power supply for constant usage)
Solar panels stored in a trunk might only work if you anticipate traveling at night and then charging the car during the day. Do you then intend to limit your range of travel to the battery capacity or do you feel the need to travel further?
Solar panels that could fit into a trunk would have to be flexible panels. The present efficiency of these panels is about 1/2 that of the rigid counterparts which would require a doubling of the size already mentioned. Therefore approximately 68 sq meters or more than 730 sq ft of flexible solar panels would have to be stuffed into the trunk of a nissan leaf to be able to top off the battery in a day.
A genset trailer may be a better alternative while traveling. http://www.evnut.com/rav_longranger.htm This particular trailer was made by AC propulsion which they advertise here: http://www.madkatz.com/acpropulsion/long...
Solar Panels On The House?
I Want To Know How Many Solar Panels To Use To Power My Ac And Water Heater
you cant use solar panels to power your house,
it would take more than you can afford,and space to mount them
and all the equip required to hook it up.
what they don,t tell you is
you need a Battery bank [24 to 48 batteries], deep cycle
,[one that will convert 12 volts to 110, at the wattage you need ]
a transfer switch, rated at 100 amps
a 45 watt panel is around $300
Can I Connect An Ac Motor To The Solar Board Directly?
There Were No Dealer Of Solar Panel Here, So I Decided To Buy The Solar Board Which Will Arrive By Next Week. How Can I Make The Ac Motor Work If I Can'T Connect The Solar Board To The Ac Motor Directly?
I would pick up some books on solar panels make sure you get one that has information with basic electronic information. Solar panels make a dc voltage in most cases unless it has some type of inverter built in this would be rare. Depending on the size most are low wattage. I would guess it doesn't have the power to run the ac motor even if you could.
If you could you would need a voltage regulator and a inverter to turn the dc to ac. You would need some type of battery to use as a capacitor.
Your best bet would be to charge a battery system then buy a inverter to run off the battery and a battery charger with built in regulator they're cheap check ebay.. You could put the motor on a timer to give the panel time to charge the battery before running. This is what i would do if i wanted to say pump water for cattle on a low budget.

Solar Panels Convert _______ Energy To __________ Energy Which Can Be Used To Heat Water.
sunlight is electromagnetic radiation
thermal energy causes things to heat up, not chemical. chemical energy has to be converted to thermal energy in order to heat something up
People Who Are Environmentalist, What Is Better To Use Solar, Biomass, Or Wind Energy If All The Oil Ran Out?
If All The Oil In The World Ran Out And We Needed A Resource To Equal Oil, Which One Would An Environmentalist Choose. Of Course They Are Trying To Help And Protect The Earth. Which One Of These Would Be Chossen By An Environmentalist? Please Answer My Question. Thank You!
The sun, for all practical purposes, is an endless source of energy but cold climates, cold seasons and cloudy weather impact our ability to access it. We need to find a combination of energy sources and consistently rely on natural sources, such as wind and even controversial hydroelectric to meet our planet's needs.
We also need to re-engineer our products that require energy. We can design far more efficiently and still be able to cool and heat our homes, schools and businesses. The Green Star program is just scratching the surface when it comes to energy efficient appliances, etc.
I rate biomass third because it creates pollution while solar and wind do not.
