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 homeowner to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning unit, washing clothes, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, lots of property owners discover that the convenience, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically lower or perhaps remove your electric bills
Whether you're a property owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical energy expenses can make up a large portion of your month-to-month expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your energy costs and you'll still save a lot of loan.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the best ways to invest, with returns matching those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy expense cost savings, the average American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against increasing energy expenses
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the previous 10 years, domestic electricity costs have increased by approximately 3 percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect versus unpredictable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're a company or homeowner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise helps you better forecast and manage your costs.
#4 Increase your property value
Multiple research studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater property values and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations 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 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 crucial element of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical power from the sun, we can also insulate our country from cost changes in international energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, 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 nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is an excellent method to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A normal property photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are essential elements of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Significantly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that select to operate properly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective driver of consumer acquiring decisions, producing goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Many property owners opt to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This suggests that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The utility companies are notorious for their fluctuating and unreliable electricity prices. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and easy mathematics, we can determine what does it cost? electrical power will be produced, and most significantly, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next 20 years (repaired energy costs).

I Recently Asked A Question As Seen Below And Only Recieved 2 Answers But Both Were Stating That Most Homemade Solar Panel Guides Or Build Home Solar Panels Are Mostly Scams..Well I Have Purchased 2 Ebooks So Far And They Are Ok And It Seems Like It Is Possible, But The Ones I Purchased Are Not Clear Enough...However, I See So Many Places And Forums Where People Are Succeeding At Building Their Own Home Solar Power...If Anyone Has Found Any Ebooks Or Resources That Can Help Me Build One, I Would Appreciate It...Thanks For The Input...Below Was My Previous Question.....
&Quot;I Just Purchased A New Home And Am Wanting To Go Green A Little. I Want To Attempt And Make My Own Homemade Solar Panels. I Have Found So Many Do It Yourself Solar Panel Guides And Reviews I Don'T Know Which One To Use Or Trust. Does Anyone Have Any Recommendations That Are Tried And True That Work And With Very Detailed On How To Make Your Diy Solar Panel? Thanks For The Help.&Quot;...
I had researched this vary same idea for several months on how to build my own solar power because my local home improvement stores wanted several thousand's of dollars to install their systems. I personally purchased 4 different books and most of them were hard to follow..I did find one that actually helped me create my own solar panels but it ended up costing me about $150 more than stated in the book because I wanted to make it look more professional since I plan on selling my house in a year...here is the link I used to find the book. Good luck!

How Powerful Are Solar Panels?
For Example, How Many Large Solar Panels Would You Need To Operate A Greenhouse With Lighting For Simulate Sun During Cloudy Weather, A Scheduled Sprinkle System And Other Such Things?
I'M Looking For A Very In Depth Answer.
if you are talking electrical solar panels, they are rated in watts they generate in full sun. usually these panels are used in tandem with batteries, so they charge up during the day and the batteries hold a reserve of power for later use.
If you figure 8 hours of useful sunlight per day, then a 40 watt panel will light a 40 watt bulb for 8 hours. you can also measure capacity in watt-hours. this would be 40x8 = 320 watt-hours.
the general method is to determine how much electricity demand you have over a 24 hour period to get the total watt-hours. then divide that by the watt-hour capacity of one panel to get the number of panels needed.
How Do Solar Panels Work?
I Need A Very Basic Explanation Of How Solar Panels Work. You Install Them On Your Roof, And I'm Assuming They Take In Heat From The Sun To Power Your House?
As You Can Tell, I Know Very Little, But Am Interested In Learning More.
It really has nothing at all to do with heat but rather a chemical reaction.
Solar panels are made up of many small squares called photovoltaic cells. The photovoltaic cells are usually made up of crystalline silicon under a glass cover. These cells are connected by tiny wires to the solar panel. When sunlight hits the crystalline silicon the material reacts by kicking off electrons. The electrons are collected by the tiny wires in the form of a direct current (DC). This DC current goes through an inverter which turns it into a usable alternating current (AC) electricity which can be stored in batteries or fed into an electrical grid system. A group of solar panels make up a solar array. The larger the array the more electricity you collect. Expensive panels are about 15% efficient while cheaper ones are 5-10 %. You can find sites that show you step by step how to build a solar panel in just a few days.
If you produce more electricity then you use you can sell it to the electric company.
Why Are Solar Panels Good For Producing Electricity?
Explain Both Sides Of The Argument Please :)
good: no pollution, renewable energy, free power
bad: high initial cost, works for only a limited number of hours per day, and on some days (cloudy) doesn't work (deliver power) at all. Delivers a variable amount of low voltage DC power that has to be converted to high voltage AC to be useful.
I Need To Know On How A Solar Panel Works In A Simple To Explain To My Class For A Project?
Now I Know That Panels Collect Photons ( I Which I Have No Cule Wat Those R) And They Go Into A Interver But I Dont Actually Understand It ( As The Whole Process Its Self) If Someone Could Help That Would Be Soooooo Helpful.
I know solar panels...My work has 3.5 million dollars of them on there buildings...This link might help...
Photovoltaic Cells: Converting Photons to Electrons
The solar cells that you see on calculators and satellites are photovoltaic cells or modules (modules are simply a group of cells electrically connected and packaged in one frame). Photovoltaics, as the word implies (photo = light, voltaic = electricity), convert sunlight directly into electricity. Once used almost exclusively in space, photovoltaics are used more and more in less exotic ways. They could even power your house. How do these devices work?
Photovoltaic (PV) cells are made of special materials called semiconductors such as silicon, which is currently the most commonly used. Basically, when light strikes the cell, a certain portion of it is absorbed within the semiconductor material. This means that the energy of the absorbed light is transferred to the semiconductor. The energy knocks electrons loose, allowing them to flow freely. PV cells also all have one or more electric fields that act to force electrons freed by light absorption to flow in a certain direction. This flow of electrons is a current, and by placing metal contacts on the top and bottom of the PV cell, we can draw that current off to use externally. For example, the current can power a calculator. This current, together with the cell's voltage (which is a result of its built-in electric field or fields), defines the power (or wattage) that the solar cell can produce.
That's the basic process, but there's really much more to it. Let's take a deeper look into one example of a PV cell: the single-crystal silicon cell.
