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 utilize the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, washing clothes, watching TV, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, numerous property owners find that the convenience, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically decrease and even eliminate your electrical bills
Whether you're a house owner, service, or nonprofit, electricity costs can comprise a big part of your regular monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your energy bills and you'll still save a lot of cash.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best ways to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy costs savings, the typical American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the past 10 years, residential electrical energy costs have gone up by approximately 3 percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect against unforeseeable increases in electricity costs. If you're a service or house owner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home or business worth
Numerous research studies have actually found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher home worths and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, need for properties equipped with solar 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 accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from price changes in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a terrific method to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A typical property solar panel system will eliminate three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.

Increasingly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding organisations that opt to run properly. Companies are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective driver of customer acquiring decisions, creating goodwill and improving organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Numerous property owners decide to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This means that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
Since 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 fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic mathematics, we can determine how much electricity will be produced, and most notably, at what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
Can You Depend On Solar Energy?
Say I Was Living In The Remote Wilderness And Was Growing Vegetables And Using Solar Energy To Power The Lamps During The Winter. Could I Depend On Solar Panels Alone To Work 12-14 Hrs A Day Without Any Hiccups What So Ever For 2-3 Months At A Time?
There's no place on earth that gets 12-14 hours of sun in the winter. The best you could do is about 12 hours, at the equator.
But with enough land and enough solar panels, anything is possible. You could have enough batteries to last through a few days of clouds and rain, or more likely, would learn to live without electricity during dark periods.
Is There A Way To Charge Deep Cycle Batteries With Free Energy Besides Solar?
I Want To Set Up Some Rechargeable Batteries To Allow For Lighting And A Small Refrigerator. I Don'T Want To Use Solar To Charge Them. Is There Another Easy Way To Keep Them Charged With Free Energy?
There is no such thing as free energy. Even human powered devices to produce electricity require calories, and that cost money for the foods. It costs more for the food for human energy to generate the electricity than to plug into the grid.
Some people get mad at me but if you do the math, you will find it costs more to human power than plug into the grid.
Hope this helps
Would It Be A Good Alternative To Generate Solar Energy In Los Angeles? Why Or Why Not?
Depends on what your interpretation of generating solar energy in Los Angeles is. Are we talking rooftop solar on houses and buildings or some kind of large scale solar facility? Encouraging rooftop solar is a good idea. Trying to put a large scale facility isn't, cost of real estate being first and foremost among the reasons why.
What Specific Topic Should I Narrow In On For My Solar Energy Analytical Report For College?
I Chose To Do A Analytical Report On Solar Energy In America For Producing Electricity.(Or Maybe A Certain State Or 2) . At First I Was Going To Compare Solar Energy To Other Sources, Then I Figured That Goes Too Deep And Actually Discredits Solar Energy Almost Since It Acquires Less Than 1 Percent Of Production Of Electricity. My Report Is A 2800 Word Report. I Was Then Thinking About Comparing Solar Technologies From Say 10 Years Ago To Now... Yet When I Do Research It Gets Way To Technically Over My Head To Understand. Please Help Me, Im So Confused And This Is Due In 5 Days. I Keep Changing Topics And Just Need To Narrow In On One Topic And Dedicate To It. Also Sources Have Been Hard To Come By That Are Recent And Not Contradictory To Other Sites. Any Topics And Credible Sites You Can Give Me I Would Be So Appreciative. Thank You So Much.
Comparing solar to other energy sources does not denigrate it because of the % it contributes to the grid. You are confused by contribution vs source. Compare the inputs and outputs of other energy sources to solar. For example coal requires expensive and dangerous mining, shipping (input), burning (extreme pollution - output). So do that for coal, oil etc and you will find that solar is one of the ways to go. Good luck - do the work.
How Can We Store Solar Energy?
If you are willing to wait millions of years you can store it in coal and oil, or if you can't wait that long you could take advantage of it being stored naturally in the wind and the waves.
If you want to store energy from a solar water heater the best means currently available is a large hot water tank, or for a solar cell an electric battery.
