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 use the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, cleaning clothing, enjoying TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, numerous property owners discover that the convenience, special functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.

Thanks to considerable electrical energy costs cost savings, the average American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the previous 10 years, property electrical power rates have actually increased by an average of three percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical energy rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a company or homeowner with ever-changing capital, going solar also helps you much better projection and handle your expenses.
#4 Increase your home value
Multiple studies have discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties equipped with photovoltaic 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 independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
According to 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 tasks in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A normal residential solar panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Numerous house owners decide to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Can I Charge My Phone With A 5 Watt Solar Panel And A 12 Volt Battery?
I Have A 5 Watt Solar Panel And A 12 V, 7 Amp Battery. I Have Set Up The Whole System With The Solar Power Controller. How Can I Connect My Phone Charger To The System?
While the method below should work, I cannot guarantee complete safety for your device or charger. With newer switching power supplies, I am not sure that the 12 V battery will provide the expected output.
Most charging devices for mobile devices are 5 Vdc output with differing Amperage output capabilities. You could try hooking your charger directly to the 12 V battery and check the output with a multimeter to see if it is provided what the specs say on the device.
If the charger is providing the specified output voltage then you should be able to charge your phone.
The way to make sure that you can charge your device is to add a power inverter to the mix. This allows you to connect a 12 V battery to the power inverter and get 120 Vac output. Then you simply plug in your charger to the power inverter.
I am not sure how to setup the system with a solar charger monitoring device so you do not have to disconnect the battery from the charger to connect it to the power inverter.

If Enough Electricity Could Be Generated To Keep The Pipes From Freezing In The Winter At Little Or No Cost To Us It Would Be Great. I Was Wondering About Solar. Can Anyone Give Me Any Pointers?
The initial installation of a solar electric system is expensive. If it is a quality unit the regulator/converter unit will hold up for a long time with little or no maintenance. You will also have a bank of batteries which may require some maintenance depending on the type. The system will have to be matched to the expected load, in your case heat tape on the pipes. The panels on the roof will have to be cleaned and keep clear of snow and ice. For more specifics you should contact a solar contractor.

Your home electrical usage is measured in KILOWATT HOURS. A typical light bulb will be anywhere from 1/2 to 1 full panel's capacity. You will need a charging regulator AND an inverter to store power overnight, Assuming rated output, which you won't get unless you live in the desert, 60 panels would be the equivalent of a 50 amp utility service, which is the smallest I have ever heard about. 100 amps became standard more than 20 years ago, and 20 amps in not unusual today.
