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 a/c, washing clothes, viewing TV, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are significant, numerous residents find that the benefit, unique functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more attractive.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Considerably reduce and even eliminate your electrical costs
Whether you're a house owner, business, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can comprise a large portion of your regular monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will lower your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.
#2 Make an excellent return on your financial investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns equaling those of more conventional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity costs savings, the typical American property owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus increasing energy expenses
Among the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the previous ten years, property electrical energy costs have actually gone up by approximately three percent each year. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable boosts in electrical energy expenses. If you're a business or homeowner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise assists you better projection and handle your expenses.
#4 Boost your residential or commercial property value
Numerous research studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater property values and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, need for residential or commercial properties equipped with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential element of accomplishing energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price changes in international energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and help your regional economy
According to The Solar Structure, the solar industry added tasks at a rate almost 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. Since solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a significant contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Protect the environment
Solar is a fantastic way to lower your carbon footprint. Structures are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially decrease that number. A common residential solar panel system will remove 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Demonstrate 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, customers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding companies that decide to operate responsibly. Services are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective driver of customer buying decisions, creating goodwill and improving service results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power contracts (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Numerous homeowners opt to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar service provider for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
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 well-known for their changing and unreliable electricity prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and simple math, we can calculate just how much electrical energy will be created, and most notably, at exactly what rate, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

What Material Prevents Solar Radiation
Anything that casts a shadow prevents solar radiation.
Solar panels (cadmium telluride) absorb solar radiation and convert it to electricity. Something tells me that this technique is the most effective, considering all of the solar panels in space.
Solar radiation is far more than just Ultra Violet, and more commonly referred to as electromagnetic radiation. Generally the less shiny an object is, the more radiation it absorbs.
How Long Does It Take For A Solar Cell To Get A Reading?
Im Doing A Science Fair Project And I Need To Know How Long It Would Take For A Solar Cell To Get A Reading And Start Producing Energy Starting At The Time That You Put It Direct Sunlight.
Hey Robert, Quantum and Nyx are both quite correct. All you have to do is place that panel in the sun with a meter attached, and the meter will show current and voltage before you even take your hand off the panel. We actually run an experiment each year for our local 5th graders here with a panel and electronics I bring from the home. It has always been well received. There are two features that really make it popular among the kids. First is they are actually producing power with our 55 watt panel before the hour is up, and that is something they are quite proud of. Second, our setup has a small box with an amp meter connected to the incoming wire from the panel and going to a car battery nearby. Then we have a second amp meter from the battery to some 12 volt outlets. Plugged in are a light, a micro inverter to run a string of LED christmas lights, and a portable radio/CD player. Then while the panel is running and charging the battery, we turn on and off each of the devices, check the amp readings, and the kids can see how the panel can run 3 amps into the battery, and the CD player and light take 2 amps back out. Now they can see that the panel is not only running the small devices, but is charging the battery at the same time, saving power for later at night when the sun goes down.
This is exactly how a solar powered home works, and the little experiement we have set up shows all of those features, so it is very educational and enlightening to actually see it all happening. You might think of some interesting questions, such as, "Can a solar panel power a home at night?" The answer clearly becomes yes if you have a battery bank. You could also add a solar batch preheater model, just take a coffee can, paint it black, mount it inside a small plywood box with a glass side that faces the sun, and fill that can and another in the classroom with water from the tap. Be sure to take the water temperature first and write it down. Then set your box in the sun next to the panel. After a half hour, check the temp of both cans of water, and note the difference, how much warmer is the water out in the sun?
Our home actually works just like this. We have a 1.4 kilowwatt solar array and a 1kw wind turbine for electricity. There are 2 30 gallon batch water heaters out in the sun just like the one I mentioned, and the warm water they produce feeds into the regular water heater, so it uses less energy to finish heating the water. We also heat with wood and collect rain water to offset our wells energy use. All of these things could be built in model size with stuff around your house, and they offer very compelling evidence on how solar power works. I'll include some websites below you might find interesting too. Good luck Robert, and take care, Rudydoo
How Fast Does A 125Watt Solar Panel Generate Power To A Battery?
How Fast Does A 125Watt Solar Panel Generate Power To A Battery? Trying To Figure Out A Conversion Factor Here To Get A Rough Estimate Of How Many I Would Need To Power My House, Please Help?
To figure our how many you need, take a look at your power bill. It will tell you how many kilowatt/hours you used during the month. My bill says I use about 2000 kilowatt/hours per month, or about 2000 kwh /30 days=67 kw/h hours per day. That is 67,000 watt hours. To supply that with solar panels, you have to generate at least 67,000 watt hours, but you don't have a full day to do it, since you have to do it while the sun is up. So you put the energy into batteries during the day, so you can use it at night.
A 125 watt panel generates about 125 watts when fully illuminated by the sun. If you fully illuminate it for an hour, you get 125 watt hours. If you get 12 hours of sunlight a day, that would seem to imply that I need 67000 watt hours/125 watts /12 hours=45 panels.
But for most of the day, the sun isn't hitting the panel fully, so it isn't going to generate the full 125 watts. When the sun is 45 degrees to the side, you only get about 70%. When the sun is 60 deg to the side, you only get 50%. And what do you do on cloudy days? And the shorter days in the winter? To make up for this, you have to increase the number of panels to make up for the loss. So in reality, I might need double this number of panels, for realiable solar power throughout the year. That works out to about 90 panels, or 11,250 watts worth for my house.
Who Can Put Solar System To Heat House Swimming Pool?
I Would Like To Put Solar Panel To Heat My Home Swimming Pool. How Much Would It Cost And Who Would I Contact To Have It Done.
Block Poly Pipe is an option, but I don't recommend to put all of the flow through any solar system. You should put a tee in and a valve so it can be shut off and restricted. There is a trade off between the speed of the water and the amount of heat it will pick up. Also if you can build something to keep it out of the wind is best as well.
There are also many other options for solar heating systems. Most aren't so hard that someone with a little DIY knowledge can't do it them selves. For pre built options talk to a few local retail stores. Best to find smaller stores where you can talk to some one who knows something about the products.
