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, viewing TV, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, many home owners find that the benefit, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.

#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key component of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate changes in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, 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 country.

Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Many homeowners opt to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works.

Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.

Frequently Asked Questions
Government Grants For Solar Panels? A Couple Questions...?
1. Are There Grants?
2. Who Are They From Fed, State, Power Companies?
3. How Much Are They? Do They Just Pay A Percent Or An Certain Amount?
4. Do You Have To Get Certain Solar Panels That Are Certified Or That The Grant Givers Have Chosen Or What?
5. What Makes Solar Panels Certified?
Few places in the USA have outright grants, but all have the federal tax credit, and some have additional state and local incentives.
Check your area at this site:
In general, it's a percentage of the price you pay. In the most favorable areas, it can be 1/2 or 2/3 of the cost of a system.
The Federal program is rather liberal. Your system must power your primary residence (or heat water for the same), and pass local building codes. Other than that, you can use whatever your jurisdiction allows. Usually, a water heater that you just made out of black plastic tubing, or a photovoltaic panel that you homebrewed out of discarded solar cells will not pass local codes.
Some states like California have lists of approved equipment for rebates:

How To Utilize Solar Energy For Homw Use?
Kindly Send Me References For The Utilization Of Solar Energy For Home Use Like To Generate Electricity, To Use It For Heating Up Water Bath Etc. I Want To Do All The Project On My Own. Your Support Will Be Highly Appreciated.
Solar energy can used in many ways. we can use this energy by putting solar panels in our houses and we can generate this energy like we have heard of things like solar geezer , solar cooker , solar lights etc. if we use solar energy in this way then we can also preserve our natural resources.
some uses for solar energy would be telling time with sun dial, cooking, pumping water, purifying water, heating water (pools), and to heat air.
Solar Energy is used mostly in places where there is a lot of sunlight. It is used in power plants in warm sunny climates, and on houses in around the same places. They are solar paneled houses which can be anywhere. Basically, solar energy can be found anywhere there is sunlight. It will work better with more sunlight though.
How Much Are Solar Panels??
Where Can I Get Them From????
I Live In La Cali If That Helps....
well...based on what answers you received you need some cash to buy them! but solar panels are made of solar cells which cost about 1$ each. solar cells can be monocrystalline and polycristalline(they are made of silicon). monocrystalline cells can perform better at lower light but are more expensive. a solar panel made of 50 cells can produce 25 volts and about 70 watts or more(each cell produce 0,5 volts) you can find solar cells cheap on ebay and they come with what you need to assemble them. you can find youtube videos that show you how to build solar panels and its verry easy! do not change your mind about using solar panels! they are efficient and you can build a 50 cell panel for about 100$ good luck there and do this. do not be afraid of failure. here is a video for you http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_LNihKhhbGQ and another video to make you understand about solar cells http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Caf1JIz4X2I
How Long Do Solar Panels Last?
lose efficiency over time, 15 to 20 years which is slightly shorter than how long it takes them to pay for themselves...or until the first hailstorm.
