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 everyday life: running your air conditioning system, cleaning clothes, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are substantial, numerous property owners find that the benefit, special functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more attractive.
Leading Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically reduce or perhaps eliminate your electric expenses
Whether you're a homeowner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can make up a large part of your regular monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll create totally free power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your energy bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of cash.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to considerable electricity costs savings, the average American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge energy costs. In the past ten years, residential electricity prices have actually gone up by an average of three percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure against unforeseeable boosts in electrical power expenses. If you're a company or property owner with rising and falling capital, going solar also helps you much better projection and handle your costs.
#4 Boost your home worth
Several studies have discovered that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell more quickly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, need for properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a key element of accomplishing energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capability to create electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost fluctuations in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry included jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a substantial contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a terrific method to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A typical domestic photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to four heaps of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social obligation are essential parts of a company's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding companies that decide to run properly. Organisations are discovering that "green" qualifications are a powerful chauffeur of consumer getting choices, creating goodwill and enhancing company results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no money down.
Lots of homeowners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and takes care of installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You just pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the energy 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 business are infamous for their varying and unreliable electrical energy prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic mathematics, we can determine how much electrical power will be produced, and most notably, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
How Could A Plant Cell Be Compared To A Computer?
What Would The Equivalent Of The Cell Wall Be On A Computer? And The Cell Membrane? And...
interesting indeed; here's more detail than the previous answer:
the cell wall would definitely be the case for the system; not sure about the membrane but parts like a touch screen monitor would fit best, other input and/or output devices would work too like speakers, keyboard, etc
nucleus = hard drive and ROM (contains instructions for function)
chromosomes = data on the hard drive(s)
cytoplasm would just be the empty air space inside
ribosome = CPU/ processor and RAM; takes data and makes use of it, temporary holding during execution
E.R. maybe the RAM or the power distributor
Lysosome = antivirus and disk cleanup software
mitochondria = AC power adapter
chloroplast = solar panel? or battery when charging
vacuole could also be a battery of sorts, or files stored in RAM
microtubules act like the frame inside the case
Golgi apparatus acts like the CPU and RAM again (the RAM being the temporary holder and distributer of information and files)
Is This True? If America Did This We Could Pay Off The 10 Trillion Dollar Debt And Raise Our Economy?
What If I Told You There Was A Way To Never Pay For Hydro And For Gasoline To Cost 1/4 Of What It Is Now... This New Wave Would Bring In Over 100 Billion In Revenue And Deter Over 100 Billion Of Tax Payers Money... Between 250-500 Billion Dollars Here We Are Talking About Which Could Go To Free Health Care And Putting Solar Panels And Wind Power And Research Into Underwater Turbines And Other Projects...
This Would Give Us Easily Over 1 Million New Jobs And Would Give Us Fuel, Clothing, Food Exports And Would Produce Oxygen From The Co We Let Out.
The Only Reason Why We Do Not Have This Implemented Is For One Good Reason... It Would Cause People To Think And Make Us Not Want To Fight In Wars Or With Each Other...
I'm Talking About The Legalization, Selling, And Taxation Of Marijuana And Hemp!
Do You Agree That The Only Reason Its Not Legal In The United States Is Because They Want To Destroy Us?
Proven: Marijuana, As Long As Periods Of Oxygen Occur Between Tokes, Does Not Destroy Brain Cells
Proven: Marijuana Has 0 Deaths In Its Name In Human History... Even Coffee Kills Thousands Every Year.
Proven: Marijuana Is Proven To Be The Most Wide-Spreed Effective Medicine For Many Different Alliments. Including Aids And Cancer But There Are Hundreds More.
So Why Else Aside For Wanting Us To Fight, Make The #1 Profitable Business In America Which Is Pharmicuticals Even More Profitable, And Not Think About The World Around Us Would The Government Make This Medicine Illegal?
you could do even more if you abolished interest on public benefit capital works
this would save a trillion per year
Are There Any Companies That Specialize In Alternative Energy Design?
I Am Looking To See If There Are Any Companies That Design Renewable/Alternative Energy Products For Home Or Commercial Use That Are Aesthetically Pleasing. Have Any Names?
Can you be more specific?
There are ways to hide solar panels so they look like a nice high end metal roof.
Is that what you mean?
If Im Rich And Put Up Solar Panels And Wind Mills, Will Democrats Let Me Pay Less Taxes Than The Middle Class?
Are Environmental Tax Breaks Just A Way For Rich People To Avoid Taxes And Leaving The Middle Class With The Bill?
By putting up solar panels and windmills, you are paying for something that otherwise would have to be paid for out of taxes or higher electricity bills. So in that respect, it is a form of taxation going directly into something in the public interest.
Whether you consider the problem to be climate change due to an excess of carbon dioxide, or whether there is an over-reliance on oil from unstable or unreliable countries, or whether there is too much land being diverted to biofuel at the expense of food or natural habitat, or whether the high price of overhauling a national electricity grid requires more local generation to avoid mass blackouts, spending money on high-tech, less polluting and more secure local generation of energy seems a no-brainer.
When public money is short, why not encourage the rich to invest in this, rather than in replacing their designer SUV with the latest model?
How Can You Make A Solar Power Generator From Aluminum Pop Cans?
Solar Panels Part of Generator
In very simplified terms, a solar generator works by converting solar energy into electrical energy. This energy can then be used to do such things as power lighting, heat water, and run the TV. The generator consists of solar panels (which must be placed where they will receive the most possible sunlight,) a deep cycle battery for continuous use, and an inverter.
Building Your Own Solar Panels.
Amazingly enough the theory of recycling used pop cans to make a form of renewable energy through solar panels creating yet another brilliant source of solar heat, does exist. A gentleman from Newfoundland has come up with this genius plan for harvesting solar heat by recycling the old cans. The solution that he has come up with is not a difficult construction, yet is strong and durable. Quite an attractive unit.
Here is the video that shows the inventor from Newfoundland and his pop can solar heat.
"This system really does work and it works good. To improve upon it would be to fill the cans with dry sand and you would now have bio-mass that will hold the heat after the sun goes down. Adding the sand will also create more heat for heating water by raising the temperature. I have used this system to heat a 24ft above ground swimming pool. Find a small solar panel and a deep cycle battery to run the pump and pay the electric company nothing."
Another Solar Panel Design
Passive solar is just so easy, it's a wonder we don't all do it. Right now, in my little basement office in Montana, I could use a little heating up. And, with a few 2x4s and a bunch of aluminum soda cans, it turns out I can have my own passive solar heater without much work.
A clever DIYer, Daniel Strohl, painted some aluminum cans black, drilled some holes in the cans, stacked them, and then put them in a box and, voila, air coming out of the box was fifteen degrees warmer than air going into the box. He then pumped the warm air directly into his garage. And with just a little bit more work, this exact same design could be a passive water heater.
