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 everyday life: running your ac system, washing clothing, watching 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 benefits of solar power are considerable, numerous home owners discover that the convenience, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Top 10 Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly lower and even eliminate your electrical costs
Whether you're a house owner, organization, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can comprise a big portion of your regular monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll produce 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 reduce your utility bills and you'll still conserve a lot of money.
#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 traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power expense savings, the typical American property owner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to 8 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 energy rates. In the previous ten years, property electricity rates have increased by approximately three percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable boosts in electricity costs. If you're a company or property owner with ever-changing cash flow, going solar also assists you much better projection and handle your expenses.
#4 Increase your home or business value
Numerous studies have discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater home worths and offer faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become 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 crucial part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost changes in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is anticipated to continue. Because solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent method to decrease 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 normal residential solar panel system will remove three to 4 loads of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are essential elements of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding services that opt to run properly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of consumer buying decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing organisation outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Numerous house owners opt to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding alternatives. This means that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The energy companies are infamous for their fluctuating and undependable electrical energy prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and easy math, we can calculate just how much electricity will be generated, and most significantly, at what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).
What are the various payment options?

Frequently Asked Questions
Where Does Solar Energy Come From?
I Have A Science Project Due Monday And I Need Help I Need About A Paragraph About Where It Comes From
Im In 6 Grade
Generating electricity with the power of the sun’s rays (“solar power”, “photovoltaic power”, or “PV” for short) is possible due to the photovoltaic effect. “Photo” comes from the Greek for “light”; “voltaic” refers to the production of electricity and is a variant of Italian physicist Alessandro Volta’s name.
To illustrate how PV works, let’s follow the flow of energy through a small grid-tied residential system:
The first step in the process occurs when rays of light from the sun strike the cells within PV modules (modules are commonly called “panels”). As the light energy hits the photovoltaic cells, electrons are excited and begin to flow. Multiple cells are connected in one module, and several modules are connected together to form an array, all harnessing and summing the flow of this electric power.
The current produced in the PV modules is Direct Current (DC). However, most of the lights, appliances, and other electrical equipment in our homes operate on Alternating Current (AC). Next in the chain of energy flow is a device called an inverter, which gathers the DC produced by the array and converts it to AC which can be used in the home. The inverter regulates the AC power it outputs, so it can be safely used by even sensitive electronic devices such as televisions, computers, and audio equipment.
The AC output of the inverter is connected to the home’s main service panel, where it intermingles with the AC power supplied by the local electric utility. Net Metering refers to the physical (and financial) ability of a home’s electric meter to “run in both directions”. We are accustomed to power only flowing from the utility to the loads in our house. However, with the house now acting like a mini utility producing its own electricity, there will likely be times when electricity actually flows out of the house and to the utility.
Where To Face Solar Panels?
What Direction Should Solar Panels Face To Get The Best Exposure Of The Sun.
On a sunny day about noon, hold up a stick move it until there is no shadow...that is the perfect direction to point the panel...but yes...south is the simple answer
Where Are These Solar Panels Located?
Tons Of Giant Mirrors That Reflect The Suns Light Into A Tower In The Middle Which Heats Up The Water And Turns It Into Steam To Create Power. Where Is This Located
The Number one largest Solar Power Plants in the world is located in Olmedilla Photovoltaic (PV) Park, Spain."The entire plant was completed in 15 months at a cost of about $530 million at current exchange rates." That number being in US dollars.
Three of the top five worlds largest Solar Power Plants, are in Spain.
The United States has several plants being planned, one in New Mexico, (Rancho Cielo Solar Farm) and one in the California Valley (Topaz Solar Farm)
The Worlds largest( in construction) is to be in the Mojave Desert near Blythe is set to be in production(making electricity) sometime 2013 (this year). However, this Solar model will use the Parabolic Trough System, in which the panels will focus sunlight on tubes full of water, until it reaches boiling point. At that point, it will be sent to a boiler, which sends the steam through a turbine to produce electricity.
Where Are Solar Panels Used?
Where In The World Are Solar Panels Used. If It Is Used Widespread Across A Continent Just Say Which Continent, Other Than That, Just Name The Country. So Where Are Solar Panels Used Often?

They have been doing it for almost 20 years.
Solar Panel For Your Home?
So How Does A Solar Panel Work? Where Does The Energy Get Stored In? How Much Does One Cost For A Small 2 Family Home? How Much Money Would We Save On Electricity?
In the short, a solar panel is composed of many solar cells...all tied together and in some sort of a frame for mounting. When energy from the sun hits it, it creates a reaction which can feed electricity through leads to a converter system which takes the Direct Current power and converts it into Alternating Current. If you rewire your house for DC products I suppoes you wo'nt need the converter. but most of these systems are retro-fits.
Batteries provide back up source to the system when the sun goes down.
So solar is converted to electricity through the panel, which goes to your solar system which both provides power to the house and to recharge batteries. The batteries take over when the sun is down.
So you will need to know how much battery capacity you need by calculating the Amp hour rating of your applicances that you normally use at night like Microwave, TV, radio, refrigerator, etc. For some depending on the appliance....water heater (if electric) or stove)
then you need to figure out how many panels you need to provide your normal daily energy use, figure out how many batteries you need, set up a distribution system that gives you what you need where you want it and wa la.
Once done, you will be off the grid and paying nothing from the electrical utility. Some places due to deregulations allow you to sell excess power to local utilities too, but those systems need to meet tight standards.
