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 everyday life: running your ac system, washing clothes, enjoying TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are significant, lots of homeowners find that the benefit, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy

Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more informed about solar, need for residential or commercial properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential part of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from price changes in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation.

Progressively, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding companies that select to operate properly. Businesses are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful driver of customer acquiring choices, creating goodwill and improving company outcomes.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Lots of house owners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This means that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of setup, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You simply pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The energy business are infamous for their varying and unreliable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can calculate just how much electrical power will be created, and most importantly, at what rate, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
How Big Of A Solar Panel Do You Need To Power A House?
It would depend on a) how much electricty you need for your house b) how much sun shine you get where you live.
The easy answer is "a lot".
Before looking into this you should first concern yourself with reducing your current electricty usage.
The average size of a solar system needed for a house would be approx 2,000 watts. This would however get you power for about 25 lightbulbs.
Also - this would be about 25 feet long by 10-12 feet high, so the initial cost would be somewhat large (though they do last a long time).
Its also worth considering mixing it with wind power if you have a suitable location in your garden.
What Are The Benefits Of Solar Panel Heating?
What Are The Benefits Of Solar Panel Heating?
What Does It Cost For Solar Panels?
Any Other Important Facts About It?
Solar Air Heaters are a great way to supplement the heat in your house. They don't make electricity, they make heat. The box outside the house heats up, and a fan blows the hot air into the house powered by a small solar electric panel. The result, 100% free heat! This morning it was 50 degrees F outside, my kitchen was 70 degrees with my heat turned off. For free. On 20 degree days, it blows 100 degree air into the house. Depending on the size, the heater costs about $1200 - 1600. http://www.altestore.com/store/Solar-Air...
Solar water heating is another great way to make heat from the sun. The sun heats up the water flowing through the solar collectors outside, and transfers the heat into your water heater. Solar water heaters can heat up to 75% of your hot water needs. Additionally, with a larger system, you can use that hot water to heat your radiant floors or panels, or integrate with a forced hot air system to heat your home.
Trying to make electricity to make heat is a very expensive way to go about it. The sun is VERY efficient at making heat, not so efficient at making electricity.
You can also find instructions to make your own solar heaters at http://www.builditsolar.com/Projects/Spa...
I Want To Build A House That Is Energy Efficient And Wanted To Know How I Might Build One That Stands On Its Own.
i would research what they call "solar passive" homes. this is merely the building design taking advantage of your latitude and using the sun and surface area of the home to dramatically reduce your heating and cooling costs. you can also use high-grade insulation, solar panels and/or hydroelectricity, etc. to supplement your electricity needs (and lowering your bills). you can look into straw-bale homes (not as eccentric as the name implies) or "monolithic domes" (these are expensive but will last hundreds of years - they are fire proof, will not be destroyed in a hurricane or tornado, and can even be struck by lightning).
How Long Will It Take A 12V 150Ma Solar Panel To Fully Charge A Car Battery?
Hey Powergland, Flash is quite right. That panel will never actually recharge your car battery. A lead acid battery loses about 3% of its charge per week even if it is not used, and more if it stays connected to the car, so the clock and alarm can function. A 150ma of charge, even for 8 hours a day will barely keep up with the normal losses. Turns out that's exactly what those little dashboard top panels are for. If you park your car at the airport for example and go away on a 10 day trip, it is assumed your battery is near full when you plug in the panel, it really just keeps it up until you return, it isn't going to recharge a dead battery even in full sun in the desert.
You could put a larger panel in it's place, or connect several if you like. One is enough to keep the battery up, the next could be a recharger, but will still take several weeks. A third will cut that time down to several days, and so on. There is a good book at the library called, The Complete Battery Book by Richard Perez, you could just read the chapters on lead acid batteries and become fairly knowledgable on the subject in half an hour or so. Good luck, and take care , Rudydoo
So Nuclear Power Isn'T Containable And Safe , Electrical Grids Are Iffy, What'S Next Solar Power?
Is The Sun The God Of The Elite And Is That What They Want? Wind Turbines Aren'T Very Efficient Either.
Yes, nuclear power has never been safe there's always an element of disaster lurking in the shadows. Unfortunately, it is quite efficient until something goes awry. Could the same thing happen here in the USA? Sure! The question is when and how bad it will be.
Wind turbines are useless unless you live off some ocean.
Solar panels are quite efficient as long as some strong sunlight is readily available.
Solar fusion is our next best bet, because it generates that high-pressure steam needed to spin those large megawatt turbine generators.
We already have in the scorching hot deserts of our Southwest all the tools needed too generate the power for our entire nation's needs. "YES WE DO"
The reason were not doing it right now this year is because that evil monster called greed often has its way of winning new greedy converts, that glorify the nuclear power industry with billions each and every year. Now as a bit of a scientist who has experimented from time to time over the years with no federal funding with the concept of hot fusion several other similar technologies.
All we need to do is build some gigantic to scale facilities that utilize huge underground fuel-cell storage systems capable of operating the entire nationwide power grid for weeks when bad weather arises. The trick is not just using the sun incredible heat energy to generate this high-pressure steam. No, it's the storage of that reserve power which will make this power generating proposal work for the benefit of all God's children.
That's why our generous creator supplied us with radiation free solar
