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 utilize the sun to power daily life: running your ac system, cleaning clothing, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, many home owners discover that the convenience, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more enticing.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably reduce or perhaps remove your electrical bills
Whether you're a homeowner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can comprise a big part of your month-to-month expenses. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll create free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will minimize your utility expenses and you'll still save a great deal of cash.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expense-- they are among the finest methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical energy bill cost savings, the typical American house owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus increasing energy expenses
Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the past 10 years, residential electricity costs have gone up by approximately 3 percent every year. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're a business or house owner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise helps you better projection and manage your expenses.
#4 Increase your house value
Several studies have discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater property values and offer more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more informed about solar, demand for residential or commercial 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 component of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price variations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your local economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry added tasks 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 have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a terrific way to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A common domestic photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are essential elements of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding companies that decide to operate responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" credentials are an effective driver of consumer purchasing choices, producing goodwill and enhancing business results.
#9 Start Saving 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.
Many homeowners select to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This means that a third-party company-- the solar company-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, maintenance, tracking and repairs. You just pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility 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 companies are infamous for their changing and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and easy math, we can calculate how much electrical power will be created, and most importantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions
How Do I Build An Electric Scooter With A Rechargeable Battery Or Solar Panels? Is Solar Or Rechargable Better
I'D Like To Have The Scooter Cost Less Than About $1000 To Make.
If you are asking this question here it's probably too dangerous for you to try this by yourself.
For your second question though, there is no reason that a scooter couldn't be both solar AND rechargeable, and that is probably how you'd want to do it anyway. The solar cells would recharge the battery, but since you wouldn't have room to put enough solar cells on a scooter to keep it powered up all the time you would need to plug it in every so often to keep it charged up.
If you must go with one or the other then solar is not practical by itself, the sun is not always shining and you could not fit enough cells on a scooter to keep it running at more than a crawl.
Why Aren'T We Mass Producing Solar Panels?
Do you mean "We" as in the USA, or "We" as in the human species in general?
There's a few companies making panels in the US, but their prices can't compete with the panels from China. The Chinese companies can sell them so cheaply because they're being heavily subsidized by the Chinese government.
While more and more panels are being installed, it's still fairly expensive. The average cost for a home system is around $15k-$20k and that's after the tax breaks. That gives the system an ROI of about 7 to 10 years.
Also, while solar panels provide green energy, their manufacturing process is far from green. In fact they're pretty toxic.
If You Want To Rely On Solar Electricity Exclusively, How Many Solar Panels Will You Need To Buy?
Solar Energy Is One Of The Most Important Components Of A Renewable Energy Future. Your Parents Are Considering Installing Photovoltaic Cells, Which Convert The Sun’S Energy Directly Into Electricity, On Their Roof, And Have Asked For Your Help. You Do Some Research And Learn That, On A Sunny Day In Idaho, Sunlight At The Earth’S Surface Provides About 0.75 Kilowatt/M2. Solar Panels Have An Area Of 0.5 Square Meter, Operate At 10% Efficiency, And Cost $63. Your Parents Use Electricity At A Rate Of 2 Kw.
1. If Your Parents Want To Rely On Solar Electricity Exclusively, How Many Solar Panels Will They Need To Buy? How Big Must Their Roof Be (In Feet) To Hold The Array Of Panels?
2. If Electricity Costs $0.08 Per Kilowatt-Hour, How Long Will It Take Your Parents To Recoup Their Initial Investment?
Since there are 24 hours in a day, to be completely off-grid you also need battery back-up, a charge converted, and an inverter.
Buut I digress.
I think the questin is asking how to generate peak power of 2 kw
1 solar panel generate
for 2 kw
the square footage is 27 m^2
291 square feet.
the cost is 54*63
at 2 kw/hr
Are Solar Panels And Wind Turbines Really Manufactured From Oil?
I Heard Somewhere That Solar Panels And Wind Turbines Are Manufactured From Oil Is This True ?
Probably so, since plastics are made from oil. However, manufacturing the items used to generate power is a one time thing. This is far better than burning fossil fuels on an ongoing basis to generate power.
How Do Solar Pannels Work?
Pls Answer This Question In A Paragraph. I Need Some Help! Thanks A Lot!!:):):):):):):)
Silicon is mounted beneath non-reflective glass to produce photovoltaic panels. These panels collect photons from the sun, converting them into DC electrical power. The power created then flows into an inverter. The inverter transforms the power into basic voltage and AC electrical power.
That is a very brief explanation, but some may prefer a more in depth answer the question, “How do solar panels work?” Here is the more detailed response, though it still remains fairly basic:
To start off, it is crucial that silicon be better explained. Silicon has four electrons in its outer shell. However, it has the capacity rto hold eight. By sharing these four electrons with other silicon atoms and their four shell electrons, the capacity of eight is filled. When they combine with each other in this way, silicon atoms develop a strong, stable bond. This structure is known as pure, crystalline silicon.
Of course, this pure silicon is a poor conductor of electricity, as there are no electrons free to move about. In other words, the silicon is better off with impurities. To create these impurities, silicon is combined with something else.
When silicon combines with an element that has five electrons to share, such as phosphorus, a negative charge is created. Silicon can only take four of the five electrons. This leaves one free electron looking for a spot. These additional electrons are known as free carriers; they carry an electrical current.
On the other hand, when silicon is combined with an element that has three electrons a positive charge is created. Boron is a material which suits this purpose. When silicon and boron are combined, holes are created.
These silicon combinations and their differing charges are used to make solar panels. As photons come down from the sunlight and strike the silicon, it shakes everything up. The free electron that was hanging onto the silicon/phosphorous combination is now forced to the outer ring. From here, it gets sucked up to the outer ring of the silicon/boron combination. This is how electricity is created.
