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 resident to use the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, cleaning clothes, seeing TV, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are considerable, many property owners discover that the benefit, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably lower or perhaps remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a property owner, business, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can comprise a big portion of your regular monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility costs and you'll still save a lot of loan.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the best ways to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs cost savings, the typical American property owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus increasing energy expenses
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy rates. In the past 10 years, residential electrical power costs have actually gone up by an average of 3 percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and protect against unforeseeable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're an organisation or homeowner with rising and falling cash flow, going solar also helps you much better forecast and handle your expenses.
#4 Increase your home or business worth
Numerous research studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher property worths and offer more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, demand for homes equipped 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 part of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price changes in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market included tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A typical domestic photovoltaic panel system will remove three to four loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are very important components of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that opt to operate properly. Companies are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of consumer getting choices, developing goodwill and enhancing service results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no money down.
Many homeowners decide to fund their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This indicates that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The energy business are well-known for their varying and undependable electrical power rates. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can compute what does it cost? electrical power will be created, and most importantly, at what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).

What is the warranty?
The Lease and PPA include a 20-year warranty during the lifetime of the system. This warranty exceeds that of most other solar installers’ warranties.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why And How Does Solar Panels Work?
Solar panels are painted black and absorb the light and heat from the sun. Inside they have water or an oil which absorbs the heat and transports it to a storage place. It can be used for hot water or for heating or for generation of electricity. Generally if generation of electricity is the reason for the solar panels, photoelectric cells are used .

Solar Powered Ac Adaptor?
Does Anyone Know If They Make Something That Is Like A Solar Panel With The Ability To Plug Something Into It With A Normal Three Prong Plug? What I'M Trying To Do Is Take Something For Out Doors That Needs An Extesion Cord And Find A Way To Just Plug It Into A Solar Panel. Thanks!
It is possible but it might be a little bit expensive. It would also depend on what you are planning to power up.
Solar panels usually produce very small DC voltages. You could use a DC to AC inverter to convert the DC voltage to AC voltage and a step up transformer to make it 120 volts. Now the problem is that despite having a high voltage, your solar panels might not generate enough power for the devices that you plug-in. That means you would have to buy a lot of solar panels just to keep up with the power rating of whatever you plug-in which might end up being much pricier than buying a very long extension cord.
There are actually a few AC solar panels out in the market that have micro-inverters inside but they tend to be really expensive
I Want To Run A House In The Philippines With Solar Panels?
I Want Obvious Things Like Lighting - But Wonder About A Basic Air Con Unit 500 W?, Small Fridge Freezer (40 W?) And Large Screen Tv 40 Inch (100 W?) Air Con And Tv Only Being Used At Night.
How Many Panels/Watts/Volts/Amps Do I Need
.(The Sun Shines 9 Days Out Of 10 - Back Up Is Always On)
Try 3,500 Watt for a central home air conditioner and 150 watts for a fridge, however a fridge works in bursts and there's a high demand when the compressor starts so it's really takes about 1,000 watts. If you're grid tied, the peaks aren't a problem, you just draw from the grid and feed it back slowly. If you run off batteries, they are 50% efficient at charging. The inverters to produce AC power are about 65% efficient. If you are grid tied, you can design for your average use. If you are running grid free then you have to design for peak loads. Batteries help with the peak loads but at the 50% charging rate, the need for a battery room, they're expensive and they can explode. You will want a backup such as a generator or grid tied incase the Sun doesn't come back in one day.
If we just use your numbers, 500 watts for AC for 12 hours, 40 W for fridge, 100 W for TV but say for 4 hours each night then you have 500 * 12 + 40 * 24 + 100 * 4 = 7,360 Watt Hours per day. Take into account the 50% efficiency of batteries and the 65% efficiency of the inverter and you have 7,360 / ( 0.5 * 0.65 ) = 22,646 Watt hours. Assume 8 hours of usable sunshine and 9 days out of 10 of usable sun and you'll need 22,646 / 8 * 10 / 9 = 3,145 watts. To last two nights and one day to survive one day of no sun, you would need to store 1.5 * 22,646 Watt Hours = 33,969 watt hours which would be 33,969 / 12 = 2,831 Amp Hours.
So you would want about 32 100 Watt solar panels which would cover about 256 square feet, you would need 48 lead acid batteries of 60 Amp Hours each. A charge controller and an inverter.
These are just rough guesses but it sounds like you would need $16,000 of panels, $5,000 in controllers and inverter, and $4,800 in batteries for a total of $25,800. If your power from the grid is 10 cents per kwh, this investment would represent a 1.8% per year loss. Since the 10 year US Treasury bonds pays 2.24% per year, this would not be a rational decision. You'll have to hope for government incentives to make this project viable.
Note, lighting isn't part of the calculations but you can just trim down your TV viewing time.
