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 daily life: running your air conditioner, washing clothing, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while decreasing 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, lots of home owners find that the benefit, distinct features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically minimize or perhaps remove your electrical costs
Whether you're a property owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical energy expenses can make up a big portion of your monthly costs. With a solar panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will minimize your energy bills and you'll still conserve a great deal of money.
#2 Make a terrific return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the finest methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more standard investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity bill savings, the typical American property owner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus increasing energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge energy prices. In the past ten years, residential electricity rates have increased by an average of three percent yearly. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect against unforeseeable increases in electrical energy costs. If you're an organisation or homeowner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise helps you much better projection and manage your expenses.
#4 Increase your home value
Several research studies have actually discovered that homes geared up with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and sell quicker than non-solar homes. Appraisers are progressively taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers end up being more educated about solar, need for homes equipped 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 achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our country from rate variations in global 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 total U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all tasks in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a great way to decrease your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can considerably reduce that number. A typical residential solar panel system will get rid of three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are necessary elements of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Significantly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding companies that select to operate properly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of consumer getting choices, producing goodwill and enhancing service outcomes.
#9 Start Saving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for property owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Many property owners choose to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, tracking and repairs. You simply pay the solar provider for electrical power-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
Since 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 well-known for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power costs. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can calculate how much electrical energy will be produced, and most importantly, at exactly what rate, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions
I Would Like To Know Why And When Will Government Building Start To Use Solar Panels On Buildings Especially In States Where Is Constant Sun.
To be honest, solar panels don't work so there isn't much point to using them. 2 solar panels will power your fridge. Then you've also got the cost factor and the waste factor. Solar panels, for the amount of energy they give, are more toxic to the environment than coal. Not while they are producing power, but in the CREATION of the panels. Never hear anyone mention that little tid bit when they talk about solar panels. Then again I don't think many people know about it either so that may have something to do with it.
Basically to sum up, I hope they never do pass legislation about solar panels. Government’s job is to stay out of the way of people and make sure they "play nice". They shouldn’t tell me, or anyone else, how to run our lives.
Solar Panel House?
We Are Looking In To Buy Solar Panels For Our House. The Payment Has To Be Around Or Under $4000. Our House Is A 4 Bedroom And 3 Bath 2-Story House. (Around 2500 Sq. Ft.) Where Can We Get The Solar Panels? Also: Will It Heat Our Water? When We Get The Solar Panels, What Direction Do They Have To Be Facing?
Where can we get the solar panels? I think you will have to buy it on Ebay Solar Panels can be used to heat water and heaters.
When you get the solar panels, they should be in the direction that the sun rises in your country. They should be allowed to come into direct contact with sunlight for most of the day in order for the solar panels to be used to its max.
Sun Run.......Solar Powered Financing....Anyone Know Anything About This?
Just Curious What Your Experience Is/Was.......Thx
Sun Run looks at your energy usage from the previous 12 months with PG&E (or other utility, but they mainly operate in Northern California). That helps indicate the size of the system (it will typically cover 80 percent of your usage), as well as your roof's capacity for holding solar panels and the available space. You can opt to go smaller, but not usually bigger because the California Solar Initiative gives rebates based on the system of the appropriate size for your home. You should ask 3 solar installers for estimates as to size and cost-- that's what recommended. SolarCity does something similar.
Sun Run charges between $3,500 and $20,000 to install the panels. Sun Run meters customers' usage and charges 13.5 cents a kilowatt hour for the electricity the panels produce. Anything beyond what the panels produce is charged by PG&E but at a lower rate. That 13.5 cents is for the life of the system (about 20 years). Right now, California utility companies' residential customers typically pay 15 cents to 35 cents a kilowatt hour, and that rate increases periodically. Sun Run owns, maintains and insures the systems for 20 years, and the company says that customers will on average pay about 15 percent less over the life of the system than when purchasing solar systems with an upfront cost. They get all the rebates and take depreciation on the unit, which is why the cost can be lower than buying panels yourself.
This financing method is called a power-purchase agreement, and it's used all the time in commercial solar systems but not as much in residential. The company seems pretty reputable, but I haven't purchased from them.
Where Can I Find A List Of Solar Panel Manufactures Worldwide?
I Need A List Of Worldwide Solar Panel Manufactures From China, Us, Spain, Germany, Japan Etc...

Actually Ofir, it is much easier and less expensive than you might believe. What you need is a magazine, like, "Solar Today." There is only one that I am familiar with that gets into the nuts and bolts of solar panel manufacturers, installation, and other types of renewable energy. It's called, "Home Power Magazine." We have a home that has been powered by the wind and sun for the last 10 years or so, and most of our initial information came from Home Power, and afterward, from many of the sources that they have in their articles. Every few issures, they take an item connected to renewable energy, such as an inverter, wind turbine, water turbine, or solar panel, and list all the different models that are available. They are broken down by manufacturer, and include specifications like power output, range of voltages, efficiency, materials, and even where they are manufactured. If you subscribe online for one year, the cost is around $25 USD, you will have access to all the previous issues that are archived on their website. You can use their search engine to locate an article listing all the solar panels, they did one a year or so ago with all the information you are looking for.
Despite what you might be hearing, solar power usage is growing at an incredible rate. In the US alone, there are over 100,000 homes and businesses operating some level of solar power right now, that's good news. As far as different countries using different requirements, most all of the manufacturers today are selling their products to most countries worldwide, they are designed to meet requirements for almost anyplace you might use them. Check the magazine out today, you might learn more than you were originally looking for. I will include their link below, and some other good sources for information. You can google any one of them to find their website. Good luck, and take care...Rudydoo
