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 conditioning unit, washing clothing, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are substantial, numerous residents discover that the benefit, distinct functions, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more enticing.
Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Dramatically lower or perhaps eliminate your electric expenses
Whether you're a homeowner, service, or nonprofit, electrical energy costs can make up a big portion of your regular monthly expenditures. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce totally free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will lower your utility bills and you'll still save a lot of money.
#2 Make a great return on your investment
Photovoltaic panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the finest ways to invest, with returns matching those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power costs savings, the average American house owner pays off their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus increasing energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge energy rates. In the past ten years, residential electrical energy rates have actually increased by approximately three percent each year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable boosts in electricity expenses. If you're a service or homeowner with rising and falling cash flow, going solar likewise helps you better forecast and manage your expenses.
#4 Boost your home or business worth
Numerous studies have found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater property worths and sell quicker than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar setups into consideration as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, need for homes geared up with solar 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 attaining energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electrical energy from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost changes in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market included 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 development is expected to continue. Because solar-related tasks have the tendency to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable factor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a great method to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A typical property photovoltaic panel system will remove 3 to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social responsibility are essential elements of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding companies that decide to operate responsibly. Services are finding that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of consumer buying choices, producing goodwill and improving service results.
#9 Start Conserving 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.
Numerous property owners opt to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar service provider-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repairs. You just pay the solar provider for electrical power-- 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 utility companies are infamous for their changing and unreliable electricity rates. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With solar panels and simple mathematics, we can determine just how much electrical energy will be created, and most notably, at exactly what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions
Why Does It Cost So Much To Buy Small Solar Panels? I Am Trying To Do A Good Deed For Earth Week Why So Much?
I Have Bought A Single Row Of Small Solar Panels Thats Comes 20 In A Row For $800 Dollars And They Are Very Small And Comes With A Protected Glass That I Can Hang It Out Anywhere Outside And Hang It Where The Sun Is At Its Highest.
But I Wonder Why Does Solar Panels Cost So Much?
The Reason I Bought It Because I Disparately Wanted To Save Money Because My Family And I Spent Over 200 Dollars On Electricity Each Month So If I Spent 24 Thousand Dollars Each Year For Electricity Then That Means I Would Cut The Amount Of Electricity I Have By Half So That Means I Would Save About A $1000 Dollars Each Year Instead Of Over $2400.
With These Solar Panels I Can Charge The Batteries Of My Car, Use It For My Dish Washer Or My Living Room Tv.
Did I Made The Right Thing Because In Others Store They Had The Same Thing But Much More Expensive.
What Do U Think?
They say about pv cells that the cost return takes 7 years, meaning that it'll take you 7 years to save on electricity what you paid for the cells. Most of us expect to need electric for a long time, so it is worth it. The only question is, will the cells continue to work for 7 years. They are working on more cost effective solar technology, but as of yet, none has been effective.
Were Can I Buy Decent Solar Panels?
I Am Looking For Solar Panels And Wind Mill To Put Around Our House And I Was Wondering Were To Find Them
Your best bet would be to go down to a place that has magazines and look through their solar magazines, like Solar Today and Home Power. In these you'll will find many places online where you can buy solar and wind power products. They also have good reviews so that you can be an informed consumer and don't end up buying poor quality products. I've seen performance reviews on a variety of models.
How Can I Charge A 12 Volt Car Battery(Lead-Acid)With A Solar Panel?
I Don'T Have A Solar Panel Yet So Can You Tell Me What Votage Panel Should I Get.
Do I Need An Inverter Or Something.
A solar panel for a 12V battery has 36 cells. This generates about 22V at low temperature and about 15V at 60C, just enough to have a series diode and charge a 12V lead acid battery. Note that it will stop charging if temperature is over 60C because the voltage is too low. It needs to be well ventilated, not just lying on the ground.
It can be connected directly across the 12V battery (the right way round with + to + and - to -. It will charge the battery at whatever current it is producing. Normally with btteries you wouldn't want to charge much faster than the "10 hour rate". That is the Ampere hours rating of the battery divided by 10 hours in Amps. Therefore a typical car battery (40Ah) should not have more than about 4 Amps, which will normally be a panel rated about 80W. It will take about 10 x 1.4 = 14 hours to charge. If the panel is smaller, it will take longer. If it is bigger it will take less time. How much energy can you take from the battery. Ten hours at 4A. However there will not be enough hours of full sun to recharge it next day.
The panel is normally sized for the load requirement. Work out how many watt hours of load per 24h day. Multiply by 1.4 for the charge losses. Then determine how many equivalent full sun hours the panel works (look it up on internet for the location). Divide Wh/day by 12V to get Ah/day. Divide Ah/day by the equivalent sun hours and you have the number of Amps the panel should put out (no clouds). Bigger battery helps with clouds, and bigger panel helps too. You shouldconsider 100Ah battery with deep cycle capability, not a car battery.
If the battery is charged continuously by a solar panel and not discharged the battery will build up charge until eventually it is fully charged (its voltage is about 14V). It will then be overcharging, and it will bubble away merrily, giving off sulphour dioxide gas toxic and hydrogen and oxygen (very explosive) and using electrolyte. That is why the battery should never be indoors or near flames or even small sparks. An electronic device connected between the panel and the battery controls overcharging by shutting off the panel once the battery is full. These can be bought at the solar panel shop - solar charge regulator.
The inverter converts 12V to 120 or 230V AC etc. It is only necessary if you want to run mains appliances. You could run an inverter with loads up to 50 or 100W from a car battery, and that would go a few hours only. With the bigger battery about double that. Remember 4 Amps for 10h is 48W.
What Do You Think Is The Most Efficient Alternative Fuel Source?
Which One Would You Put Your Faith In?
Solar, it is available in abundance and the panels last for up to 50 years(more than 3 times the payback period) have few moving parts. Soon these numbers will skew even further in favor of panels as yeilds increase and cost of mfg falls.
How Is The Economy Of The Usa And The World Still Functioning?
Will The Global Economy Crash?
If So, What Can I Do With The Capital I Currently Have?
Will it crash? I don't think so, and least not right away.
Not because it can't, but because a whole lot of governments are very busy trying to keep it up.
Basically, a crash occurs when people think that their investments (such as land, or stocks, or commodities or securities) are worth X and they find out that no one will buy them at that price,
How bad the "crash" is really means how much less people will spend for something that was worth X yesterday.
By 2006 there was a LOT of "inflated" values floating around. The housing market in the USA was the base for a whole lot of "derivative" securities, and the housing market was overpriced. Housing prices reached a point that people would not (or could not ) pay the asking price. When prices started dropping, it was like a avalanche. It took everything lower down the mountain with it.
Governments limited how bad the crash was by throwing money at it. Unlike the 1929 crash, when the governments stood back and let the markets sort it out, this time they stepped in.
What they in effect did was flood the markets with money (the bailout), letting banks and wall street commandos balance their books on the backs of the taxpayer.
The reasoning was brutally simple. If we (the government) do nothing, the average citizen is wiped out, because there will be no jobs for him to work at, no savings because the banks went bust, no food because the farmers can't sell their crops for what seed costs.
If we pour in tax dollars to balance the books, the taxpayer is hosed for the next 25 years, but maybe it will not hurt quite so bad.
So that's what they have done, and are still doing. What you see in Europe right now is just more of the same. Pouring in taxpayer dollars to make the inflated values in the banks balance sheets real instead of imaginary.
Will it work?
Short term - probably yes
Long Term - Beats me. When you are dealing with world economies, most of it is smoke and mirrors, and a lot of faith.
