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 everyday life: running your ac system, cleaning clothing, watching TELEVISION, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are significant, numerous homeowners discover that the convenience, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.

Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will decrease your utility expenses and you'll still save a great deal of cash.
#2 Make a terrific return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electrical power expense savings, the typical American homeowner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure against rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the past ten years, residential electrical power costs have actually gone up by approximately three percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect against unpredictable increases in electricity costs. If you're a company or property owner with rising and falling capital, going solar likewise assists you better forecast and handle your costs.
#4 Boost your home or business worth
Several research studies have actually discovered that houses geared up with solar energy systems have greater home values and offer faster than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, demand for homes geared up with solar 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 attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to create electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and assist your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar market included jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the country. This growth is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial factor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is an excellent method to minimize your carbon footprint. Structures are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A normal residential solar panel system will eliminate 3 to four tons of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

Sustainability and business social obligation are necessary components of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are recognizing and rewarding businesses that choose to run responsibly. Organisations are discovering that "green" credentials are a powerful driver of consumer acquiring decisions, creating goodwill and improving company results.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Numerous house owners choose to fund their solar panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar service provider for electrical energy-- 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 Investment
The energy companies are notorious for their changing and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can determine what does it cost? electricity will be created, and most notably, at what rate, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
What Is The New Solar Technology Is Made By Improved Designs For The Solar Panels And Their Components?
What Is The New Solar Technology Is Made By Improved Designs For The Solar Panels And Their Components?
Recent solar cell improvements have included capturing more of the available solar radiation in cells, capturing the heat energy of the sun as well as the visible light energy and improving the general efficiency while lowering cost of the solar cells. Most of this is advanced work and may take some time to appear in the form of solar panels commercially available to the consumer.
Is It Possible To Have An Entire Rapid Transit System Run On Solar Panels And/Or Wind Turbines?
I Mean, Would They Be Able To Generate Enough Power For A Mid-Size Subway Or Metro Without Any Additional Input From Coal-Fired Or Gas-Fired Or Nuclear Plants?
Yes. Even large cities potentially could. The NYC subway system uses approximately 500 MW during peak usage. There are several wind farms with this kind of capacity already in existence. As for times when the wind isn't blowing or the sun isn't shining, energy storage systems like flywheels or pumped-storage. Or excess power generated at off-peak time could be sold to the main power grid and "bought back" when needed.
Has Anyone Used Solar Panels To Heat Their Pool, And What Are Your Comments About Them?
Trying To Decide Between A Wood Burner That Heats The Pool, Or Solar Panels. Has Anyone Had Any Experiences With Either And What Are Your Opinions?
Solar pool heating is an incredibly efficient method of heating the pool. You need to be sure to size it correctly, 1 panel isn't going to make any difference. Generally you need the equivalent of 70 - 100% of the pool surface in solar panels, depending on your location.

Would You Consider Investing In Solar Panels Or Wind Turbines To Power Your Home? For What Reasons?
Hi Audi, yes, and if fact I have. Kano has a point, if you already have regular grid power, adding solar or wind now will most likely not save you any money. We do have grid power, and added the solar and wind power anyway. Here's the reason:
When we make a pot of coffee, or run the T.V. now, we do not demand any power from our power company. Our nearest powerplant is coal powered, so for enviromental reasons, we enjoy our sun and wind powered home. Some people grow tomatoes in their garden even though it's cheaper and easier to buy them at the store. Maybe they like the taste better, or prefer vegetables without chemical pesticides or other non natural features. We just grow electrons in our garden. There is also the fact that our home has not been without power for even a minute the last 15 years, hard to put a price on that. So yes, our power probably costs more than our neighbors, I'm fine with it.
Hydroelectric and biomass are fine technologies, but not suited for home use. Most good hydroelectric sites have already been built on. Unless you have a nice waterfall, or high volume fast moving stream nearby, or you are operating a large livestock farm, neither will be much use to you. We also collect rainwater from our homes downspouts, and preheat our domestic hot water with solar collectors, and our primary source of heat is wood, which is harvested from the 6 acre forest on our property.
People will have all kinds of reasons why you should not go solar. They don't work at night, well neither does ours, but my golf cart batteries take care of that just fine, and I might add they are 100% recycleable today. My favorite complaint is that a solar panel will never generate as much power as was used to manufacture it. First of all, this has been proven wrong by several studies. On average, the, "embodied energy," in a solar panel is regained in 2 to 5 years, depending on where the panel was installed in the end. But it doesn't matter. If you build a coal plant, and put it alongside a similar sized solar farm, which earns back its embodied energy faster? The answer is the coal plant never does. We forget that once you build the coal, or oil, or natural gas plant, you then have to feed it fuel, which it converts to electricity at some rate less than 100%, so it keeps digging itself a deeper hole that it can never crawl out of. At least a renewable energy source plant can one day get even environmentally. In the U.S. alone, there are over 100,000 homes and businesses using solar today, and the number grows daily. An article in Financial Times recently sited that today, 23 % of our worldwide grid power is now produced with renewable sources, compared to 28 % coal. In about 2 years renewables will overtake coal. The real reason is economics, power companies have discovered that once you build a wind farm, or solar thermal plant, you never have to buy fuel for it. There's more, but I think you get the point. Take care Audi, Rudydoo
