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 home owners to use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioner, washing clothing, enjoying TV, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, lots of home owners discover that the convenience, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate variations in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.

Lots of homeowners opt to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This means that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
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 companies are infamous for their varying and unreliable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can compute what does it cost? electrical power will be generated, and most significantly, at exactly what cost, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
Can You Store Solar Energy?
If You Can Store Solar Energy, How Do You Do It And Would It Work With A Home Made Solar Panel
Yes you can store solar energy. I'm guessing that you are talking about electric energy. If so: Use the solar energy to charge a battery. That is current technology's "choice of storage".
At a more basic level you can store solar energy by having it heat your hot water through a simple circulation system of coils exposed to the sun. You can store solar energy to heat your house by having a large mass (concrete, stone, dark-colored drums of water) exposed to the sun - then suck the heat out when you need it.
Going back farther- Burn wood: It is energy from the sun, it can be stored (well, stacked) and is renewable. And, it's good, healthful exercise! I DO know - after a bunch of years in Vermont.
I'm really curious about "home made solar panel" idea. Can you do it? Will what you make serve you better (be more productive or cheaper) than what's on the market?
(I lived on an island with a generator, charger/inverter, battery bank for 5 years. This is curiosity - but more than just idle curiosity.)
I'd appreciate your response to my question(s).
If You Lived In Alaska Would You Invest In Solar Panels For Your Home, Why?
Lol This Might Be A Stupid Question To Ask But Im Really Not Sure If Alaska Is A Good Place To Install Solar Panels... Is It?
I Have Exams Tomorrow And This Specific Question Will Be On The Test, If You Think It Is A Bad Or Good Idea, Why?
Sorry Im Really Puzzeled
Thanks In Advance!
Since this is a school exam question, I think they are only looking for the most basic answer.
The angle of the sun is low in northern latitudes, meaning Alaska gets much less sun than the other states on a year-round basis. That's one reason it's cold. It does warm up with long days in summer, but the amount of sun year-round is still low on an average basis.
That's probably the main reason to answer no. There are some cases where it might be a good idea, for example, if you have an isolated cabin, solar might be the best way to make electricity, expensive as it would be in Alaska.
How Many Solar Panels Do You Need To Run A House?
How Many Solar Panels Do You Need To Run An Air Conditioned House? To Be Exact, An 3,4000 Square Foot House? And How Much Would The Total Cost Be?
My guess is that your real interest is in saving money? If you are thinking long term, solar electricity can save money if you live in a suitable area. It does not have to run the entire house. A modern system will work side-by-side with the normal power you use today, so whether the solar displaces 10% of your electricity or 100%, you can still save money.
The only way to get an accurate estimate of the financials is to ask a solar installer for a quote. Prices of systems vary widely depending on how much power you want, and the local price of labor.
