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, washing clothes, viewing TV, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, lots of home owners find that the benefit, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.

Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power costs savings, the typical American property owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the past 10 years, domestic electricity rates have gone up by an average of three percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and safeguard versus unpredictable increases in electrical energy expenses. If you're a business or house owner with ever-changing capital, going solar also helps you much better projection and manage your expenditures.

Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential element of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price fluctuations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country.

Many house owners decide to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This means that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar supplier for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The utility companies are well-known for their fluctuating and undependable electrical power rates. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can determine what does it cost? electrical power will be produced, and most notably, at what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).
What are the various payment options?
We have many flexible purchasing agreements for customers who would like to install a new home solar system. There are three different payment options, making them a viable choice for customers of all budgets. The payment options include Lease, PPA, and Purchase.

Frequently Asked Questions
Solar Panels At School..How Can They Help?
How Can Solar Panels Improve The School Environment?
Get off the grid, then the Coal Burning electric company makes less pollution.
Little Solar Panel Question?
I Have A Mini 3 Led Mini Torch Light That Is Powered By A Battery Charged By A Tiny 9 Cell Solar Panel. Can I Remove The Little Button Battery And Connect It To A 3.6V Old Cell Phone Battery, Would It Charge The Cell Phone Battery Instead Of The Button Battery?
Considering how small the panel is,
it probably wouldn't do any good at all for a phone battery.
As for the idea of using solar energy to charge a cell phone:
There is always a good reason why an accessory
isn't offered for a particular item, such as a cell phone.
The most common reason is that it wouldn't work.
Price And Energy Production Of Solar Panels?
I Have Been Thinking About Getting Solar Panels For My House. What Do You Think I Should Get? Companies? Prices?
I Also Have Another Question. How Much Energy Can A Small Solar Panel Produce?
A small panel will not produce much power. When people put solar electric panels on their house with the goal of saving money, they generally put up a lot of large panels - 200 or 500 square feet worth. Its hard to save money with just one panel.
The only way to get close on how much it will cost and whether that represents a savings is to get out your electric bills for the past year, and call a local solar installer for a quote. The system on our house cost $20,000 and we got back $8,000 in incentives, so $12,000 net. It can save money, but that will be over many, many years.
How To Connect Solar Panels To Batteries?
I Have Two Solar Panels That Were Going To Be Trashed At Work. I Want To Use Them To Charge Batteries On My Rv But I Noticed They Put Out Around 20 Volts In Direct Sunlight. So I Am Wondering:
-Isn'T This Way Too Much Voltage For A 12 Volt System?
-Do A Need Some Sort Of A Regulator Connected To Keep Them From Overcharging?
20 volts is a common open-circuit voltage for nominal 12v panels. The panels put out about 15v at full load. If the panel puts out little enough that it takes 20 hours or more to put a full charge in the battery you can get by without a charge controller - just keep the cells topped up with distilled water. A charge controller will do a more efficient job, though. The most efficient charge controllers use what's called Maximum Power Point Technology (MPPT) which lets the panels operate at their most efficient point throughout the battery's charging cycle. Available on E-bay. The charge controller should have the same or higher wattage as the panels it controls - if you're not sure of wattage, assume that they are the same as similar area panels you find for sale.
Before buying a charge controller, connect the panels through an ammeter to a discharged battery. They may have been trashed because of damage and low output. You need at least an amp for trickle charge, 5 amps for reasonable recharge times.
Should The Uk Be Proud Of It'S Carbon Emission Levels?
We Make Practically Nothing In The Uk Any More, We Used To Churn Out All Manor Of Goods, But The Manufacturing Industry Was Destroyed By The Tories And By Way Of Making It Look Better They Crow About How Carbon Neutral We Have Become.
Yet Now All The Stuff We Made Before Is Made In China, Who Don'T Care How Much Crap They Shove Into The Air, And Having Made The Goods In A Far Less Green Way Than We Did, The Carbon Is Added To Because We Have To Ship Or Fly It Across The World To Get To Our Shops.
So Should We Be Proud Of The Carbon, Or Admit We Have Been Mugged Off.
You've been had. You guys will really be in trouble if a cold winter sets in. Your windmills and solar panels will not make a dent in the demand for fuel. You will wish you had all those decommissioned coal plants back in action.
The socialists and greenies risk rendering you the next Spain.
