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 resident to use the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, washing clothing, watching TV, cooking supper. All while minimizing your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a pressure on the electrical grid. And while the ecological advantages of solar power are substantial, lots of homeowners find that the convenience, distinct functions, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are much more alluring.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly minimize or even remove your electric expenses
Whether you're a property owner, company, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a big part of your regular monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll produce complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility costs and you'll still save a great deal of cash.
#2 Make a fantastic return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more conventional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity costs cost savings, the typical American house owner settles their solar panel system in 7 to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Safeguard versus rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut advantages of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the past ten years, property electrical power rates have increased by approximately three percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and secure against unpredictable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're an organisation or house owner with fluctuating money circulation, going solar likewise helps you better projection and handle your expenditures.
#4 Increase your house value
Multiple studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property values and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly 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 self-reliance
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of achieving energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from cost changes in worldwide energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This development is anticipated to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be greater paying and can not be outsourced, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is a terrific way to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A typical property solar panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees each year.
#8 Show your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are important elements of an organization's culture and values. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that decide to run responsibly. Businesses are finding that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of consumer acquiring choices, creating goodwill and improving company 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 money down.
Many property owners pick to finance their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing alternatives. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and takes care of installation, maintenance, tracking and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility 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 notorious for their fluctuating and undependable electrical energy rates. There is clearly 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 price, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).
What are the various payment options?
We have many flexible purchasing agreements for customers who would like to install a new home solar system. There are three different payment options, making them a viable choice for customers of all budgets. The payment options include Lease, PPA, and Purchase.

Frequently Asked Questions
If I Had A Solar Panel That Was 15&Quot; By 15&Quot; And Had A 500% Efficiency Rating, How Many Watts Would I Get?
Sorry. They're not being honest with you, and you should ask for a 500% refund to see what their response is.
Solar PV panels currently on the market have about a 15 - 20 percent efficiency rating. There are new processes that claim 40 percent efficiency. Just so you understand: 100 percent efficiency is the most possible. To get 500 percent (five tmes the amount of energy supplied by the sun) you would need a miraculous process that multiplies the energy somehow.
A little 15 inch square panel would produce about 16 watts on a sunny day.

How Do You Store Solar Energy?
Recommended Products Please...
You store power in lead acid batteries (heavy duty car batteries). You use a diode with it so when sun goes down the power from batteries doesn't go back to solar cells.
Then you have to run an inverter that switches power from 12V DC (if you use car batteries) to 120V AC to run household appliances. The inverter is the same thing that you can use in your car if you want to plug laptops etc into your car. It uses your car battery for power and has a receptacle in the inverter identical to want is in your house. You can buy inverters about anywhere, Autozone, Harbor Freight tools , Northern Tools, etc
and solar panels:
This can be very expensive for home use energy.
And you need a charge controller, which controlls the charge to your battery ( takes the place of the diode above so use this instead)
Google "homemade solar power" and you'll get lots of info
How Can Eco Friendly Homes Help The Environment?
hungry raccoons and other things can eat the wrappings on the solar panels and stuff.
Are Solar Panels A Good Home Investment?
yes they are they will pay for themselfs they could save you up to £500-800 a year on energy bills depending on the size of your house.
Do Out Door Solar Lights Work?
L C Them In Peoples' Yards But L Don'T Know How Well It Works. Lf It Gets It'S Power From The Sun, Then How Come There'S Little Batteries In It?
The batteries are rechargeable and the solar panel charges them, which then in turn powers the bulb.
People who think they don't work usually have used them incorrectly. Or bought crappy lights.
The Christmas light example is perfect: Christmas lights or for that matter MOST solar lights have a tool that detects darkness, turning the light on. So, if you use solar Xmas lights and regular Xmas lights, the solar lights will not work well. Or, if you try solar lights and have lots of other lights (such as spotlights, street lights or lamp posts) they won't work well.
We have solar lights and even when it rained for five days straight, our motion detector spots, lamp post and good quality accent lights still worked because the little day light there was (along with stored power) kept them working. Granted, by the fourth and fifth night, they weren't as bright as normal, but they were still on at 4:00 am the last day of rain before the sun came back.
The article below is a good source of why people get the wrong idea about solar lights. If you are interested, they are also have a sale and rumor has it there may be a BIG-**** sale for Memorial Day.
