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.

Thanks to considerable electrical power costs cost savings, the average American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, property electrical energy costs have actually gone up by approximately 3 percent every year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a business or house owner with changing cash circulation, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and handle your expenses.

#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key component of attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our country from rate fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Since solar-related tasks tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.

Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Many homeowners decide to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This means that a third-party company-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar 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 Investment
The utility business are notorious for their varying and unreliable electricity prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can determine just how much electrical power will be generated, and most importantly, at what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

How Much Does 1000 Square Feet Of Solar Panels Cost? This Is For A Pool With Dimensions 75Ft By 25Ft? How Much Will It Cost Including Installation Fee And The Water Heater?
the expensive way is to have solar panels make electricity to run an electric heater.
the cheap way is to have panels heat the water directly.
that's a fairly large pool, but it should work.
probably not in Alaska in January.
but then, you're not going to generate any electricity there either.
Electricity From Solar Water Heater?
In My House, A Solar Water Heater Is Installed Similar To This Picture. Http://En.Wikipedia.Org/Wiki/Image:Solarboiler.Jpg
Can This Panel Be Used To Generate Electricity With Some Modification, So That It Can Stored In Battery And Used To Power Electronic Items?
If you heat the water too much too produce an intense amount of steam, which when transferred to a turbine connected to a generator, will rotate it, you can produce electricity. But this is practically not possible with this solar water heater.
I think you are bit confused between Solar-cell panels and Solar water heater.
Both of these devices are completely different from each other. The only similarity is, that they work on solar energy.
Solar cells are made up of semi-conductor elements, which when kept in sunlight, produce electricity.
But on the other hand, Solar Water Heater is a device containing a common black coloured box, in which thin pipes carry water. This water, due to sunlight, get heated.
Even both the devices work on Solar Energy, but they are entirely different.

Does Anyone Know A Good Company To Buy Solar Panels From?
I'M A Carpenter, And Can Do Electric Work. I Want To Make Some Money Installing Solar Panels. What'S The Best Source?
Wow. This is a big question.
First, are you in the United States? If so, then I would look at a couple of web sites.
First, I would look at joining ASES - the American Solar Energy Society. (Actually, I'd do this whether or not you were in the US) Their magazine will have ads and directorys and so forth for panel manufacturers, inverter manufacturers, rack vendors, metering companies, etc. At the very least, their web site will give you numerous links to popular panel manufacturers.
Right now, it can be difficult to get panels in the US. My buying agent can't promise us a significant number of panels until at least late this coming fall. And prices are going up due to a silicon shortage at the moment. Still, you could probably get your hands on small quantities. You just might not be able to choose exactly which manufacturer you want.
Also, I'd look into getting NABCEP certification. This is the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners. They provide a referral service for people looking for solar installers, and they may have a net work of members that could help get you started.
I Am Entertaining The Thought Of Getting Solar Panels For My Home To Save Money.?
I Don'T Know If It'S Worth The Hassle Though.Can Someone With Solar Panels Please Tell Me If It'S Worth It.Thank You For Your Response.
As far as I know, unless you live in a location with a huge amount of consistent strong sunlight and typically use a fairly large amount of electricity the cost of purchase and installation could take up to twenty years to recoup in savings. Obviously you would have to sit down with a calculator and do the math for your own situation to figure out exactly how it would work for you. It shouldn't be hard to figure out a round about figure if you go over your bills and research the amount of energy that you can expect to generate in your location with whatever brand, style, size, etc of system your looking at. Do the math, but don't expect some crazy cost savings unless you live near the equator.
How Can I Encase Solar Panels For A Resonanle Price?
Acrylic Is To Expensive, Epoxy Clouds Over With Exposure To Light, Wood Swells, Warps, And Rots, Glass Cracks, Plexiglass I'M Pretty Sure Is Out Of The Question, And Metal Is Just Not Strong Enough, It Flexes Like Crazy. The Panel Is To Be Made With 3X6 Cells. So It'Ll Be Pretty Big. And Nobody Put Stuff About Global Warming Or I'Ll Give You Negative Feedback. The Hoax Has Gone Far Enough.
Do understand that it's generally not going to be a net savings making your own panel. To make something watertight, and resistant to weather for decades, and that will pass lots of sunlight, would cost more than to just buy a ready-made panel.
But the compromise might be to use ordinary 1/8" window glass, and seal it with some kind of UV-resistant roofing silicone. From time-to-time, I would re-check the seal to make sure it's still good. As for cracking, unless you're in an area that gets hail, I wouldn't worry.
For commercial panels, they use a tempered, low-iron glass that is tough, and also very transparent to the wavelengths that the solar cells use.
