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 unit, cleaning clothes, seeing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are substantial, lots of residents discover that the benefit, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically lower and even eliminate your electrical costs
Whether you're a homeowner, company, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can make up a large part of your month-to-month expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your utility bills and you'll still save a great deal of cash.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they are among the very best methods to invest, with returns measuring up to those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power bill savings, the typical American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against rising energy expenses
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the previous 10 years, property electrical energy prices have gone up by approximately 3 percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're a service or homeowner with changing cash circulation, going solar also helps you better forecast and manage your expenditures.
#4 Increase your residential or commercial property worth
Several research studies have actually discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property values and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being more educated about solar, need 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 an essential element of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost changes in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a great method to lower 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 typical residential solar panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.

Sustainability and business social obligation are very important elements of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, customers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding companies that decide to run properly. Services are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful motorist of customer getting decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing service results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Many homeowners opt to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You merely pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the energy company.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The utility business are notorious for their fluctuating and unreliable electricity prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and easy mathematics, we can compute just how much electrical power will be created, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
How Long Can Solar Energy Be Stored?
I Am Purchasing Panels To Help Consume Less Energy. I Need To Know If The Storage Is Long To Buy Less Panels. Trying To Figure If I Should Buy More Than Two. I Would Like To Run Normal Usage Of Lights In The Home.
Solar energy can't be stored at all.
As soon as the sun stops shining (at night) there is zero energy available.
What happens is that solar energy is transformed into electricity which can be stored in a battery.
The storage batteries are a crucial (and expensive) part of using solar energy.
You buy as many batteries as you require to run appliances during the night time. It needs to be tempered with the ability of the solar panels to charge up the batteries.
I think you better swap over to LCD lights if you want to run them off batteries. Even the "energy efficient globes use a lot of power.
How Is Solar Energy Converted Into Electrical Energy?
How Is Solar Energy Converted Into Electrical Energy?
Special crystals in the panels collect electrons as they hit the plates, sending them all through current gathering it in one system
Why Should The Us Use An Alternative Energy Source?
Writing A Persuasive Essay On It But Know Nothing About It
I would suggest to answer with questions that should have been asked alternately.
like.... "Why should the US use an alternative energy source for _________?"
For Cars- Why? I really do not know. We have had alternatives in the forms of electricity, steam, black powder, and solar for even up to 100 years! There just isn't a better "bang for the buck" so to speak... Or there isn't an alternative that is more efficient for less money than fossil fuels.
For USA's Power- We use several forms right now including: coal, water/hydro, natural gas, oil, and nuclear. What we should invest more in is the use of Nuclear Power Plants. It has a history of misinformation and misunderstanding around the world and especially in the United States. It is our cleanest, safest, and cheapest option for the money.
When Will We Have Solar Powered Vehicles On The Streets ?
I Know That Solar Roof Tops Are Available For Cars, But The Range Is Minimally Boosted. And Then The Solar Cars For Endurance Races.. But They Are Not Designs For The General Public. I Like To Know When Electric Vehicles Will Be Powered By At Least 50% Through Solar Energy And Built In Vehicle Solar Panels ?
All the vehicles Ive seen online are still just too heavy to use all the on board solar power to transport someone down the road. It becomes a trade off... you need more surface area to have more solar panels, and this adds more weight..
Some bikers have mounted solar panels on the roof, side, or pulled a trailer... and that's a good start, but my favorite is THEKPV.
This vehicle has solar panels as the wind fairing, plus the bike is only 50lbs.. He doesn't say how much solar power it uses riding down the road.. But the site mentions using the solar power to charge batteries, and capacitors in smaller groups so I assume he can utilize the 50 watts of on board solar power to match 50 watts from the battery and ride down the road on 100 watts @ 50% solar. This is probably very slow.. compared to a car.
Why Is China Investing In Green Technology When They Have More Coal Than Anyone?
Not Just To Export, But To Produce Their Electricity.
Why Would They Do That?
Is The Problem That They Have A Leftist Liberal Government That Isn'T Very Bright?
Is The Problem That They Just Don'T Understand Fauxnews Science?
Is The Problem That, Maybe It'S Warming There, But Not Over Here In N. America?
This is just my opinion which may not conform with the truth but a friend of a friend had been to China back in the eighties consulting to the Chinese companies building underground storage facilities for the Chinese government that had the capacity to house billions of barrels of oil, huge quantities of processed iron ores and other precious metals.
As the bloke's curiosity got the better of him, he asked one of the facility guides what the Chinese government was doing mass hoarding so much natural resources that weren't being released to the mass market, the guide replied 'They are preparing for the inevitable future when everything will become scarce and the price will eventually skyrocket'.
So just as the Chinese were preparing for all contingencies even as far back as the eighties, I would assume that they are still preparing for the contingencies for the future now by tapping into all avenues of energy generation knowing that eventually the domestic consumption of energy will only increase with increasing demand placed by ever increasing population not to mention geopolitical considerations and future projection of the price of natural resources as time factor will eventually deplete all conventional source of energy.
