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 home owners to use the sun to power everyday life: running your ac system, washing clothes, seeing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, lots of residents find that the benefit, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably minimize or even remove your electric costs
Whether you're a property owner, company, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can make up a big part of your month-to-month expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of money.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity costs cost savings, the average American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the past ten years, domestic electrical power rates have gone up by approximately three percent annually. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unpredictable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a service or homeowner with fluctuating capital, going solar likewise assists you much better forecast and manage your expenditures.
#4 Boost your home or business value
Several research studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater property values and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need for properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential component of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost variations in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, 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 tasks in the country. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a great method to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A common property solar panel system will remove 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are necessary elements of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding companies that choose to run responsibly. Companies are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of customer buying choices, producing goodwill and improving service outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Lots of homeowners pick to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This means that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The utility companies are notorious for their varying and unreliable electricity rates. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can calculate just how much electrical energy will be created, and most notably, at what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Solar Energy Features?
I'M Trying To Do A Feature- Benefit Chart For Solar Energy. Can I Get Some Features? Ex. It'S Waterproof, Environmentally Friendly, Etc. It Would Also Be Great If You Brought Some Benefits Along With Those Features But It Isn'T Really Necessary. Thanks.
Solar energy collection produces no emissions whatsoever. Solar energy collection consumes no fossil fuels. Solar energy collection makes electricity out of energy that is otherwise not collected at all. Passive solar energy collection has no moving parts. The principal materials required to manufacture solar energy collectors are among the most common materials on earth.
Of course, manufacture of solar electric panels has some energy use, some fossil fuel use, some pollution, and some waste, but not very much more so than any other current energy production method and quite a bit less than for some. Installation and maintenance of solar collectors also has costs, again usually not more than, say, the same wattage in coal burning power plants. Active solar systems, which use a medium to store heat overnight and through overcast days, have some of the same issues as any thermal electric generation scheme.
One feature of solar power is that it is available only during local daylight hours, and then only when the skies are not overcast with stratus clouds. This is considered a drawback.
Can One Solar Panel Kit (A) Charge Another Kit (B) With A Led Light Buld, That Charges Panel Kit (A)?
Could One Solar Kit Charge Another Solar Kit That Charges The First Solar Kit
Technically it "could"... but there is always a loss of heat somewhere in the equation (the bulb) in which case panel A would slowly not have enough energy to properly charge the bulb, ending the cycle. Though this would be efficient, it would not be possible for very long after you took light away from panel A. It is impossible to gain perpetual energy. There is always some form of Heat or Friction.
What Kind Of Battery Storage System Can I Use With A Small 20 Watt Solar Pane?
I Have A Small Hydroponics System I Am Building That Uses Low Amounts Of Power.
The Only Reason It'S Going Solar Is Because It'S Away From The House And My Parents Don'T Like Me Using Electricity (Plus It'S A Project That Could Be Kinda Fun). Anyways I Need To Power A Computer Fan For About 14 Hours A Day For Cooling Of My Nutrient Solution So The Plants (Rhubarb Of All Things, My Prototype (If You Want To Call It That Lol) Actually Grows It Well) Can Grow Okay In The Tropics, It Uses 4.3 Watts At 12 Vdc. Also I Want To Run A 5 Watt Air-Pump Continuously Or Something Along Those Lines.
It'S Fine And Dandy With The Panel That Will Be 20 To 30 Watts, I'Ll Just Go With Instapark From Amazon. But The Voltage Regulation So The Voltage Doesn'T Spike Past 13 Or So Vdc And Power Storage During Darkness Is An Unknown.
With A Larger System I'D Merely Purchase A Deep Cycle Battery Or Even Use A Normal Lead Acid Battery, Then Buy A Charge Controller. But It Seems Such A System Won'T Scale Down Very Effectively Cost Wise And I'M Better Off Going To 40 To 50 Watts. That'S Too Expensive, And Therefore To Do A Small System I Feel Lost :/
So If Anyone Has An Idea Of What To Do I'D Appreciate It Since I Could Spend Hours Reading And Hit The Same Conclusion Some Here May Have. :)
Since the battery will be located outside, I think a deep cycle battery is good. Wall Mart sells them for about $50.00 add a marine battery box for $15.00. A 45 watt solar panel costs $189.00 (or cheaper occasionally) and it comes with a charge controller. Get a 12 volt air pump for best efficiency, or a small inverter for $25.00.
Why Did Reagan Remove The Solar Panels From The White House As Soon As He Took Office?
During The Oil Embargo Of The 70'S, Carter Had Solar Panels Installed On The White House. When Reagan Took Office, In Additon To Eliminating About 90% Of The Tax Credits For Solar Research (In Effect, Raising Taxes On This Work), He Had The Solar Panels Taken Down And Sent To A Warehouse.
Why Would He Do This?
The answer is in the article,
"The solar heating panels were installed on the roof of the West Wing, but removed during Ronald Reagan´s presidency in 1986, after the energy crisis and worries about dependence on foreign oil had subsided."
