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 daily life: running your air conditioning unit, cleaning clothing, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, numerous property owners discover that the convenience, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly decrease or perhaps remove your electric costs
Whether you're a property owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can comprise a big portion of your monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will decrease your energy expenses and you'll still save a great deal of loan.
#2 Make a great return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity expense cost 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 Protect against increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, residential electricity rates have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and protect against unpredictable boosts in electricity costs. If you're an organisation or property owner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your home or business worth
Numerous research studies have found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and sell 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 property buyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for residential or commercial properties geared up 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 a key component of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Since solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a terrific way to minimize your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A common property photovoltaic panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are very important components of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that select to operate responsibly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective motorist of customer purchasing choices, producing goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Numerous homeowners pick to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar supplier for electricity-- 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 business are well-known for their varying and unreliable electrical power prices. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can compute what does it cost? electricity will be produced, and most notably, at what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
I'M Trying To Use A Car Battery For Various Needs While On A Three Month Stay In The Woods.?
I Haven'T Bough Anything Yet, I'M Trying To Get The Best Idea For What To Use. I'M Thinking About Using A Solar Panel To Keep The Battery Charged, But I Want To Do It Right. What Do I Need To Know To Do This Safely? I Will Basically Be Running A Laptop, A Cellphone Charger, And Maybe A Few Lights. I Would Like To Hard Wire The Solar Panel To The Battery, And Alternate Between That And A Hard Wired Ac/Dc Converter For An Electrical Outlet For The Various Things.
Also, How Will I Monitor Usage And Watt Capabilities And What-Not For What All I Can Plug In At Once?
How Will I Properly Keep The Battery Charged? What All Supplies Do I Need For This To Work For Me? Bare Minimum For Wattage Requirements. Please Be Specific And Knowledgeable, I Don'T Want Any Bad Advice To Ruin My Equipment.
These are the things you need to elaborate on before someone can design a workable solution:
Total AC wattage you want to run
Desired run time at this wattage in hours
Available average full sunshine hours where you are going
Ampere Hour capacity of battery you are going to use
An ordinary car battery is about 60-100AH
Unless you use a deep cycle battery you don't want to use more than 1/3 - 1/2 capacity to prevent battery damage.
That gives you 20-50AH available capacity
@ 12 Volts that is 240-600 Watt hours
Assuming 70% inverter efficiency you would get
160-420 Watt hours to run your Stuff
You didn't say how much sun was available where you were going.
In any case, you'll either need to manually monitor your car battery voltage with a voltmeter or get one of these Solar Charge Controller:
Charging a battery is about 50-80% efficient so count on putting twice as much energy in to energy out.
So, to get that 240-600 watt hours INTO THE BATTERY you'll need to put in
480-1200 watt hours
To choose the exact panel you need to know how much sun to expect. Panels only give out rated power in FULL UNOBSTRUCTED SUN.
The Power of the panel required could be calculated from:
Required panel power = (Required watt hours / Hours of full sunshine) * Efficiency
Unfortunately you can't calculate much more without the information requested above
What Do You Think A City In 150 Years Will Look Like.?.?
Future cities will concentrate on energy conservation, reducing waste and maxiizing available resources.
Better, more efficient mass transportation such as Maglev trains without use of polluting diesel fuel.
Better use of solar resources including; solar panels for electricity and more skylights for light.
Vertical farm skyscrapers may be uilized in place of a complex transportation and distribution network from distant farms to save resources and time.
Water recycling and purification to lessen the impact on natural aquifers.
Fossil fuels have been replaced by renewable energy such as fuel cells and solar shingles.
Structures may be below the surface to provide more uniform temperatures save on heating, cooling and overhead construction costs.
Each residence has rooftop gardens with fresh vegetables and fruit trees.
Packaged products will be encased in recycled material which will be recycled again, therby reducing or eliminating packaging waste.

How Much Would Be The Investment For Solar Panel Which Runs 2 Air Conditioner?
I Want To Setup Solar Panels To Run 2 Air Conditioner And Simple Lights. How Much Would Be The Approx Cost In Usd? I Want To Set It Up India. If You'Ve More Idea About Indian Market Then Thats Better.
This means that what you would be powering with solar electricity are things like the refrigerator, the lights, the computer, the TV, stereo equipment, motors in things like furnace fans and the washer, etc. Let's say that all of those things average out to 600 watts on average. Over the course of 24 hours, you need 600 watts * 24 hours = 14,400 watt-hours per day.
I know that a solar panel can generate 70 milliwatts per square inch * 5 hours = 350 milliwatt hours per day. Therefore you need about 41,000 square inches of solar panel for the house. That's a solar panel that measures about 285 square feet (about 26 square meters). That would cost around $16,000 right now. Then, because the sun only shines part of the time, you would need to purchase a battery bank, an inverter, etc., and that often doubles the cost of the installation.
If you want to have a small room air conditioner in your bedroom, double everything.
If you want to just power 2 small air conditioners, your look at about $32,000 +installation
How Does A Cell Compare To A Car?(Cell Analogy Project)?
I Am In Dire Need Of An Analogy Comparing A Cell To Some Sort Of System. My Teacher Gave Us Papers With Things She Came Up With And I Got A Car But I Do Not Know Anything About Them Much Less How They Compare To A Cell
**Include Each Organelle With It'S Specific Analogy In The System Please**
The nucleus can be compared to the driver because it controls what the cell does like the driver controls the car. The cell membrane is like the outer shell of the vehicle because it supports and protects the cell like the outer shell of a car does. The endoplasmic reticulum is like all the wires and pipes in a car which carry materials. Cytoplasm is sort of like the frame of the car because it supports everything inside. The mitochondria can be compared to the engine of the car because it converts sugar to energy like the engine converts gasoline to energy. Any storage compartments and the trunk are like vacuoles because they store things. I am not sure about the lysosomes. If you had a solar powered car the solar panel could be compared to the chloroplast.
Whats The Difference Between Geodesic Domes And Monolithic Domes? ?
The Only Thing I've Heard Is That Monolithic Is One Structure And Geodesic Is More Than One Structures Connected Together. Now I Am Still At Home With The Parents And I Am Wanting To Save Up To Build A Home. Are They Made Of Concrete? Which One Is Safer? Which One Cost Less? Which One Can Be 2 Stories And Still Be Safer Than The Average Home? How Large Can One Be Built If Not Able To Be 2 Stories? Can They Have Windows And Utilities? I Know Its A Lot Of Questions But When I Am Able To Pay To Have It Built I Would Like To Know What Am Doing. So Please Give Me Straight Forward And Informative Answers.
A dome requires less energy to heat and cool and lend themselves to different types of solar panels, earth tubes, and other types of alternative energy sources. Of course, domes can save up to fifty percent when on standard (on the grid) electrical and gas hookups, too. This saves you lots of money for years to come! All our domes, over twenty-four feet, are 2x6 construction for the shell, so you have better insulation for even more savings on heating and cooling, in all types of climates.
2. SUPERIOR IN STRENGTH
Geodesic domes have been proven to withstand bad weather the world over better than the standard box type construction, including snow loads, tornadoes and hurricanes, making them a safe and secure place to live. After all, can you think of anything stronger than interlocking triangles?
The Monolithic Dome is a permanent structure which is energy efficient, cost effective, disaster resistant and attractive.
Monolithic Domes have real strength. They can withstand the force of a tornado, hurricane or earthquake. They cannot burn, rot or be eaten by bugs.
The Monolithic Dome is energy efficient. It will usually save fifty percent on heating and cooling costs compared to a comparable conventional building.
In 1999, David was awarded the U.S. Patent for the Crenosphere, a breakthrough in large dome construction. It will allow concrete domes to be built from 300 feet to 1000 feet in diameter. These huge structures are ideal for indoor sports facilities and stadiums. We are moving toward a future where homes, stadiums, offices, schools, churches, and more will be Monolithic Domes.
