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 everyday life: running your air conditioning unit, cleaning clothing, seeing TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing 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 significant, many home owners discover that the benefit, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably minimize or perhaps remove your electric costs
Whether you're a homeowner, service, or not-for-profit, electricity expenses can make up a large portion of your monthly costs.

#3 Safeguard versus rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the previous 10 years, property electrical power costs have increased by approximately 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard against unpredictable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a company or property owner with changing capital, going solar likewise assists you much better forecast and handle your costs.

#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
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 capability to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar market included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.

Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Numerous house owners pick to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar company for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
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 energy companies are well-known for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and basic mathematics, we can determine just how much electrical power will be produced, and most notably, at what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
Howmuch Solar Panels I Need To Run Arefun/Tv/And Computer And 5,000Btu Ac?
The AC is the problem. You probably need about 700 to 1000 watts to run all that.
When you include the installation, charge controller, batteries (lots of expensive batteries) and inverter, you are probably looking at US$20,000 or so.
Whereas from the power company, 1000 watts costs about $1000 per year.
I Have Three 130 Watt Solar Panel And 6 Battery Cells Of 2 Volts 550Ah. But My Batteries Are Never Fully Charg?
Can This Amount Of Solar Charge These Batteries.
Well you are stating the solar panel powers but no mention of their voltage????. Yes, they should do the job. I suspect the lack of blocking diodes may be your problem, assuming you have done the homework. You have 6 battery cells at 2 volts each, that is ...err..12 volts, assuming you have them connected in series. Count the number of cells on the solar panels and maybe we have a starting point. One solar cell is 0.6 v, in this case you would need a minimum of around 30 cells (physically it will probably be 32 to make it 'square'), you need a fair bit of over- sizing in that direction. Solar panels are resistive when not illuminated so must have a blocking diode included to prevent the batteries from discharging into the solar panels at night. Check that each array has a blocking diode included, if not add them. Solar power is pretty useless unless you have loads of sunshine. You seem to have gone through a bit of trouble and expense on this one, so give me some basic facts and I will help you through it.
Update 7 Dec If the batteries take 20 hours to fully charge and there are 10 hours of sun each day then the batteries will be fully charged in 2 days. The question was, can the battery be charged, answer is yes, it can. There is no mention of load. If the batteries are not charging there is something wrong.
After You Build Solar Panels, What Do You Hook Them To? Batteries, The Book Doesn'T Tell You About This?
I Ordered The Power 4 Homes Book And It Said Nothing About Hooking Up The Batteries To The Solar Panel Or Wind Generator.
in truth, you're out 50 bucks.
they're not going to work.
and i may be wrong, but i don't thing you're going to get your money back.
they claim to have an email address that will answer your questions.
they also claim that the power company will pay you.
the power company, here at least, will allow you to offset your bill up to the amount of energy you use.
but will not pay you for any excess.
in addition, there are taxes and fees that you have to pay even if you owe nothing for electricity.
they also claim that their wind turbine will generate 450 watts.
however, if your house is anything like mine you use 1,000- 2,000- 3000 Kw of power.
your refrigerator uses more than 450 watts.
the fact is that to get a solar panel to work with any efficiency takes chemistry that you don't have at home.
frankly, his 102,000 current users seems more than a little unlikely to me.
if he really was that successful you'd see it on the news.
i've listened to his pitch.
he's a carnival salesman.
what he's really passionate about is getting your money.
Has Main Street Shifted More Left Or More Right?
Wind Energy, Solar Energy, Hybrids, Market Regulations, Limited Abortions, Health Care For Low Income People, Global Warming, Taxing And Regulating Oil Companies, Disapproval Of The No Child Left Behind Program, And Separation Of Church And State, All See To Be Main Street Values Now.
Although, Immigration Laws, Pows, And Torcher Also Seem To Be Accepted By Main Street.
Has America As A Whole Shifted More Left Or Right In The Last 10-20 Years?
Society itself is trying to shift toward sustainability. The people who are in power don't want to lose their milk cows and are trying to prevent it.
Sustainability will be considered left-sided until more companies realize how profitable it can be.then the right will jump on claiming they were for it, the whole time.
America itself has shifted more right as a result of a surprise we got on September 11,2001.
As the moderates realize it and start felling enough is enough, because things are unjustifiably too far right, the cycle will tilt back left.

How Solar Power Works,
Different Types Of Solar Panels
Hmm I Have To Find Out A Lot About Solar Energy.
Solar energy is the light, visible and invisible, that is emitted from the sun.
Solar power is the electricity that is created from solar energy in man made devices.
The solar energy can be used to directly create electricity in solar cells. It can also be used to heat a material that is then used to heat water and power a generator. These are the two most common ways of creating solar power from solar energy.
The price of the solar power will depend on how it is created.
Solar power is electricity and can be used anyway that other electricity can be used.
New types of solar panels are being developed at a rapid rate in the modern world. I would suggest a search on line for the latest available and the newest research results.
