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 utilize the sun to power daily life: running your a/c unit, washing clothes, seeing TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are substantial, many home owners discover that the benefit, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically reduce or even eliminate your electrical bills
Whether you're a homeowner, service, or nonprofit, electrical power costs can comprise a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your energy bills and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the finest ways to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy costs savings, the typical American house owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the past 10 years, residential electrical energy rates have actually increased by approximately 3 percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and safeguard against unforeseeable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a business or house owner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise helps you much better forecast and manage your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home value
Several studies have actually discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher home values and offer quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key part of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost variations in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a great method to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A normal domestic solar panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are essential elements of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that opt to operate responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are a powerful motorist of customer purchasing choices, creating goodwill and enhancing company results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Many house owners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This means that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility 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 well-known for their varying and unreliable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and easy math, we can determine how much electrical energy will be generated, and most notably, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
What'S The Difference Between A Proper Solar Water Heating Panels?
And Household Radiators Painted Black And Housed In A Cloche. Being A Tight Git I Built My Solar Water Heating System For £180. It'S Three 1.2M X .6M Panels, A Pump And A Controller. It Gives Me Tons Of Hot Water On A Sunny Day And Does A Bit Even When It'S Not Sunny. So Whats The Difference? Why Do People Spend £7000 On Solar Water Heating Systems?
"Cloche" as in belfry? (In your case inhabited by bats.) Solar panels do more that just heat water, they also supply electric current. I use my solar shower all the time while backpacking. Just fill the plastic bag with water (the back of it is coated to absorb the sun's rays), lay it on a rock out in the sun, and 4 hours later hang it on a tree limb, attach the shower hose and head (god that sounds obscene somehow), and you got a 5 minute hot shower. Nothing wrong with being frugal, but a tight git is something else.
If Solar Power Is So Good Why Don'T We Use It?
No Really It'S For A Project. What Are The Drawbacks?
Here are a few reasons:
- High up front costs - it is very expensive to install, and payback can easily be 10-20+ years
- Limited output - you need a lot of panels to produce an substantial amount of energy (and even then, it's not all that great)
- Inconsistent output - you get more output on sunny days, less on dark days, and none at night*
- Not good for residential - it produces power when people are generally not home (however, it is more suited for commercial or industrial uses)
- (This reason is arguable) but some people will argue that solar panels are unattractive. Who wants to fill their property with a bunch of panels? It doesn't look good. Solar panels work great on roofs of commercial and industrial buildings (where they are easily hidden), but solar houses look silly. I mean come on! http://www.lions-wing.net/solar/pv-roof....
*People will say that it's bad because it doesn't produce power at night, but who really uses power at night? The real problem is inconsistent output over a longer period of time. In North America, the only place well suited for solar is Arizona and surrounding states (see link below). I live in the midwest, and even summers here don't provide sufficient sunlight.

How Much Would A Solar Panel Cost If It Were 10 By 5Cm?
I'M Finding Difficulty On Getting An Average Price For A Solar Panel For A Theoretical Product Which I'Ve Designed For An Assignment. It Is Very Small And I'D Just Like To Know How Much It Would Cost To Manufacture A Solar Panel Which Is 10 By 5Cm.
Does Anyone Have Any Idea, With Evidence To Back Up Your Answers? Thanks, Best Answer Gets 10 Points
That is very tiny. You will probably get a few tens of milliwats from it. You cannot benefit from economy of scale. For large panels you may get power at the rate of about $6/Watt.
This little flea-weight panel may cost $5 to produce, in quantities of thousands, but would likely retail for $10 - 20.
How To Install Solar Powered Speakers On Boat?
I Just Recently Bought A Medium Sized John Boat That I'M Interested In Pimping Out. My Idea Is To Possibly Install A Solar Powered Kit On The Front-Top Side Of The Boat. Directly Underneath This Part Of The Boat Is A Small Storage Area Where I Usually Keep My Anchor. I Would Like To Run A Wire Down Into The Compartment Where There Will Be 2 Waterproof Speakers, Which I Will Install By Cutting Two Holes In This Compartment So They Can Hang Out So Everyone Can Hear.
I Would Like To Know How I Can Fulfill This Idea Of Mine, If Even Possible. My Knowledge About Solar Power Is Very Small. What Is All The Equipment That I Will Need To Fulfill This Fantasy.
here are basics on solar charging on a boat
your idea is doable. my suggestion is to add boxes inside the storage area that will protect the backs of the speakers, that way you could still use the rest of the storage area for other items. the solar panel should be mounted so that it you can get into the storage area.
