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 use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning system, cleaning clothes, viewing TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while minimizing 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, many home owners find that the convenience, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly decrease or perhaps eliminate your electric bills
Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can comprise a large portion of your regular monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your energy costs and you'll still save a lot of loan.
#2 Make a great return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy expense cost savings, the average American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the previous ten years, property electricity costs have actually increased by an average of three percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and protect versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're a service or house owner with rising and falling cash flow, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and manage your expenses.
#4 Increase your home worth
Multiple studies have found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, need for residential or commercial properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from cost variations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added 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 country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to minimize 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 residential photovoltaic panel system will remove three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are very important parts of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Significantly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that opt to operate properly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective driver of consumer getting choices, producing goodwill and enhancing service results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Many house owners choose to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
Since 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 changing and unreliable electricity costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can calculate how much electrical energy will be generated, and most notably, at what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
Plz Help, Converting Dc To Ac Solar Panels?
Hello, If I Have A 12V 40W Solar Panel , How Many Watts Would It Produce If I Plug The Output In A 120V Ac Inverter?
At the very most, 40 watts. But that is only when the sun is at it's peak and the panel is correctly aligned to the sun. The inverter will also waste some power.
Unless you live in Florida or someplace similar, you will probably get more like 10 or 20 watts.
Also you will need a battery and a charge controller, as the output of the solar panel varies a lot in voltage, and inverters have a limited operating range.
How Long Does It Take To Charge A 12V Deep Cycle Battery With A 10 Watt Solar Panel?
I Want To Also Know If The 10 Watt Rating On The Solar Panel Is 10 Watts Per Day Or Is It Constantly Adding 10 Watts? Is There A Time Which The 10 Watts Is Being Added Like 10 Watts Per Second Or 10 Watts Per Minute And So On?
a 10w solar panel means at peak efficiency ( high noon, panel pointed flat at the sun, hitting it at 90 degrees), you will get 10 watts (at any given second).
Watts = volts x amps
a 12volt battery needs an "incoming" current of at least 13 volts to charge it; 13.5 volts is better.
so if the output VOLTAGE of the panel is less than 13 volts it wont do anything.
Even if it is, 10 / 13.5 = .74 amp.( three quarters). It will take forever and a day to charge a deeply discharged deep cycle battery..........
consider that a small 110v battery charger is putting out 3-5 amps ( or 3 x 110 =330 Watts) and the alternator on a car is putting out 20 to 50 amps at 14 volts ( 280 to 730 Watts).
Is This Solar Panel Worth Buying?
It Cost $200 Online But Its Currently On Sale In The Store For $180. I Plan On Using It For When I Go Camping To Charge A 12V Battery To Power A Tv, Or Other Electrical Needs.
my experience with harbor freight is cheap tools, but not great quality, i guess its what you get what you pay for, but if your only using it for camping here and there and watching TV while you are out there it might do alright, usually their tools dont last too long, but that does seem like a good deal as long as it works well and you get your money out of it.
there is also other web sites out there that give you step-by-step directions on how to build solar panels with hardware store parts for very cheap, this site seems like one of the best ones
Can One Buy Wind Deflectors For Solar Panels?
I'Ve Installed Some Solar Panels Near The Ground, But Even Though They'Re Protected From The Wind, Snow Is Building Up On Them. I'D Like To Install Some Deflectors To Channel The Wind Up And Over The Back End Of The Panels So That Less Snow Builds Up On The Surface. The Strip Of Panels Is About 70' Long.
Thanks Very Much.
Go to a farm supply store and buy some "snow fencing", rolls of four foot long wooden slats connected with wire, and put it up all around your solar panels. Any blown snow will be trapped by the snow fence, and the only snow on your panels will have fallen on them directly from above. Unless you get very heavy snow, the heat from the solar panels should melt snow that falls them directly, and it should mostly slide off by itself.
Can I Connect 5Kw Of Solar Panels To A 1Kw Grid Tie Inverter?
I Have 5Kw Max Output Of Solar Panels, But Only Have At Present A 1Kw Grid Tie Inverter. Early Morning And Late Evening These Panels Will Only Produce At 20% And Deliver 1Kw So Can I Connect Them All To The Inverter And Leave Them Connected Without Overloading It At Mid Day?
oeman50 is wrong Solar panels don't LOAD the inverter, they supply it. A bit like your refrigerator uses about 600 watts, but it is connected to a municipal power supply capable of delivering megawatts, but it doesn't get overloaded.
However, there is a possibility of over-driving the inverter. Check the voltage output from the panels at peak illumination. You need to check the specs of the inverter to ensure that the voltage at maximum illumination does not exceed the maximum input voltage of the inverter. Allow at least 10% margin, so that if the panels output 80 volts at peak illumination, the inverter should be good for AT LEAST 88 volts. 20% might be more conservative.
A typical peak illumination might be about 1200 watts per square meter.
