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 air conditioning unit, cleaning clothing, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, lots of property owners discover that the convenience, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically lower and even eliminate your electric expenses
Whether you're a property owner, company, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a large part of your regular monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll create free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your utility costs and you'll still save a great deal of loan.
#2 Make an excellent return on your investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electrical power expense cost savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard against rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility costs. In the previous ten years, residential electrical power costs have increased by an average of three percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electrical power rate and protect against unpredictable increases in electrical power costs. If you're a service or property owner with rising and falling cash circulation, going solar also assists you better projection and manage your expenditures.
#4 Boost your property worth
Multiple research studies have discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater property worths and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, need for residential or commercial properties equipped with solar 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 attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from price fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is an excellent method to decrease your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A typical residential solar panel system will remove three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are essential parts of a company's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that pick to operate responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" credentials are a powerful chauffeur of consumer buying decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing company results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no money down.
Many house owners opt to finance their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This means that a third-party company-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and takes care of setup, upkeep, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar supplier 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 companies are notorious for their changing and undependable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and simple math, we can calculate how much electrical energy will be created, and most significantly, at exactly what price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions
How To Make A Solar-Powered Air Conditioner?
Das Any One Have A Way To Make A Air Conditioner That I Could Put A Soler Panel From A Soler Light On And Have It Run It Wile Its In The Sun I Want To Have A Air Conditioner That Will Run Off The Grid
It can be done.
You will need a solar panel that is about 100 square feet in size (10 ft x 10 ft) with a battery storage unit and a DC-to-AC converter for the air conditioner. This will give you about 1000 watts of power, and will cost about 10,000 dollars. You can run a small window-unit type air conditioner.
The battery stores power while the sun is bright so that the air conditioner will keep running if a cloud passes over. When the sun goes down, though, the batteries will run down and you won't have any air conditioning.
For the air conditioner to run all day and night, you will need at least three times as much solar panel space, so that means at least 3000 square feet, and a large enough battery to store all that extra energy for the air conditioner to use at night.
Where Is The Closest Solar, Wind And Energy Efficient Store?
The equator is the closest Solar.But in springtime Solar is closer to north latitude, and autumnal time Solar is closer to south latitude.
Why Do I Need To Upgrade My Electrical Panel To Add A Solar (Photo Voltaic) System To My House Or Business?
The Solar Company Is Saying I Need To Upgrade From 200Amps To 400 Amps To Add A 78 Kw Solar System.
The answer is different between a house and business. There is an exception in the National Electrical Code (NEC) that allows a residence to hook up solar of not greater than 20% of the panel rating, regardless of how much load is on the panel. You can find the NEC in your local public library if you want to check out this stuff. Look around article 690.
However, for a business, the panel must be able to support 100% of the possible current going through it. The scenario is as follows. Suppose you have a 200 amp panel, but have 400 amps of breakers total on it. Usually, each of those circuits only draws a fraction of the breaker value, but even if every circuit drew the maximum amount, the main 200A breaker would trip, and the building would be protected. Now suppose you feed in 78 kW of solar power into the panel. That's another 300 amps or so. If all of that goes backwards through the 200A breaker, the breaker will trip. Everyone is safe, but it's a major nuisance, and you'll lose the money you could have gotten selling the electricity. But suppose that the building is tries to draw 400 amps while the solar system provides 300. That's 300 from the solar system, and 100 from the grid, and no breakers trip. But the bus bars on the service panel heat up because they were never designed to take 400 amps. Potential fire hazard.
Panels only come in certain sizes, so you have to go to the next size up if you need a larger one.
Actually, with 78 kW, I would think that a 400A panel is not enough, unless the installers were talking about upgrading several panels at separate feed points from 200A to 400A.

What Is Solar Energy???
I Need To Know How It Gets A Copper Wire/Magnet To Spin To Produce Energy
What Companies Or Government Is Researching It
What Problems With Energy Harnessed From Fossil Fuels
Please No Wikipedia!!!!
The copper wire/magnet apparatus moves because of the photoelectric effect that Einstein found and got the Nobel Prize for. What light does is, since it is energy from photons, it knocks electrons from the outer part of the copper. The free electrons start a current moving in the wire. Use a search engine to search for "photoelectric" to get companies or government researchers working on this effect.
The problems with fossil fuels are mainly the pollution it produces and that fact that it is in limited supply. Photoelectric energy from the Sun will last for another 5 billion years!
