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 use the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning system, washing clothing, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while reducing 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 home owners find that the benefit, unique functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically lower and even remove your electric expenses
Whether you're a house owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can comprise a big part of your monthly expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's whole 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 Make an excellent return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power expense savings, the average American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, domestic electrical energy rates have actually gone up by an average of three percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and protect against unforeseeable increases in electricity costs. If you're a company or house owner with fluctuating cash circulation, going solar likewise assists you better projection and handle your expenses.
#4 Boost your house worth
Several studies have found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater property worths and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, demand for properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial element of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price variations in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added tasks at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a fantastic method to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can considerably decrease that number. A typical domestic photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Demonstrate your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are very important parts of an organization's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that decide to operate responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of customer getting choices, developing goodwill and enhancing business 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.
Numerous house owners decide to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This means that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar service provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the energy business.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The energy companies are well-known for their changing and unreliable electricity costs. There is clearly an upward trend.
With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can determine just how much electrical energy will be created, and most significantly, at what rate, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
Will A Solar Panel Ever Pay For It Self In Electrical Savings, At Market Prices? ?
I Bought A Solar Panel, It Cost About 400 Dollars , When The Sun Is Shining It Makes About, 50 Watts , Then I Have To Buy The Inverter And The Batteries , At Market Prices, Will It Ever Pay For Itself? They Say It Will Last About 10 Years. And How About A Windmill ?
You need in average 30 years to recover the investment of a solar energy system, this makes it economical unfeasible in most cases.The solar system will not probably last that either.
The only case where solar energy is economical feasible is where you do not have access to the grid, e.g. remote location.
In some countries where government wants to promote a green politics, the hardware is provided a low cost (green benefit), this makes it economical feasible for the final user.
Another way to make it economical feasible is to start from scratch thinking solar e.g. before building your house. If you buy and build everything; appliances, walls, heat systems and so on, thinking in how to do the best use of solar energy, thus you can get a nearly economical feasible system.
Can I Connect My Pool Pump To A Solar Panel?
What Size Would The Panel Be/ I Live In The Caribbean So Plenty Of Sun!
I Only Have One Heater
I don't need to tell you that electricity is extremely expensive in the Caribbean, and the sun is plentiful, so solar may be a cost effective solution for you. I have several customers in the islands who have solar pool pumping and solar pool heating.
You have a couple of options. If you already have a pump, you could find out how many watt hours (wh) it uses a day. To do that, figure out how many watts the pump uses, and how many hours a day it is on. Watts times hours equals watt hours, and that is how the electric companies charge us, how many wh, or kwh (thousand watt hours) a month. (1 horsepower is equal to about 750W, running for 6 hours would be 3900 wh, or 3.9kwh). Once you know how much power your pump uses, you can install enough solar panels and an inverter to generate that amount of power, thus offsetting what it uses.
Another option is to replace your existing pump with a more efficient solar powered pool pump. It would only run when the sun is shining, but that's pretty much when your existing pump runs too. Depending on the size of your pool, the whole package with pump and solar panels is about $5000. Do the math to see how much you are paying for electricity now, and see if it is worth it. http://www.altestore.com/store/Solar-Poo...
Your question also said you are using a heater. You can reduce or eliminate that need with solar pool heating. The pump pumps the water from the pool through the collectors, generally installed on your roof, and then back into the pool. The sun heats the water as it is traveling along your roof, just like leaving a hose out in the sun. You size the system based on the square feet of pool area. http://www.altestore.com/store/Solar-Poo...
Why Are Things Like Solar Panels And Geothermal Energy Sources So Expensive?
And Is There Anything That Can Be Done To Bring The Cost Down?
Solar will be cheaper when new technology replaces older, more expensive ones. Within 5 years, there will be no comparison, and fossil fuel will be costlier than solar.
How Many 80W Can Charge 4And2 Batteries?
How Many 80W Solar Panel Can Charge 2 And 4 Batteries In 8 Hours
It depends on the size of the batteries. 80 watts is a lot of power for a solar cell. First, make sure it's in fact an 80 watt panel. At 12 volts, 80 watts means over 6 amps or 6000 mA. This will charge about 6 AA cells in 1 hour if connected to the correct charging circuit or 48 AA cells in 8 hours. If you're talking about a car batteries, you would charge 1 car battery to a usable point in 8 hours.
Why Do People Say Solar Panels Are Too Expensive When In Ca They Lease/Install At Current Electric Bill Rate?
If Your Electric Bill Is $200. You Can Lease A Solar Pv System In Ca, And Pay $200. For 20 Years. No Raising Of Rates!!! No C02 Or Pollution To Offset. The Panels Are Warranted For 25 Years. Yet, So Many Here Buy Into The Ignorant Idea, Solar Is Not Viable, It'S Too Far Off, Why Is That? Glen Beck Said So? Check Rates In Your Area. 21 States Have Incentives. If Oil And Defense Get Corporate Welfare Solar Incentives Are Fair. The Main Components Are Silicon (Same As Computer Chips), Metal And Glass. It'S A No Brainer. The Ones Trying You To Convince You It'S Not Realistic Are Petroleum Companies, Ever Wonder Why?
Database Of State Incentives For Renewable Energy
That is all relatively new many people are not aware of the incentives.
