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 homeowner to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your a/c, washing clothes, viewing TV, cooking supper. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental benefits of solar power are substantial, lots of residents find that the benefit, special features, and expense savings of owning a solar power system are much more enticing.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly decrease or even eliminate your electric bills
Whether you're a house owner, service, or not-for-profit, electrical power costs can make up a big part of your regular monthly costs. With a photovoltaic panel system, you'll generate complimentary power for your system's whole 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don't produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your energy expenses and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.
#2 Earn a terrific return on your financial investment
Solar panels aren't a cost-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical energy costs savings, the average American homeowner settles their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Secure versus rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of photovoltaic panels is the capability to hedge utility prices. In the past ten years, domestic electrical power rates have actually gone up by approximately three percent every year. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and secure against unforeseeable boosts in electrical power costs. If you're an organisation or property owner with ever-changing capital, going solar likewise helps you better projection and manage your costs.
#4 Boost your home or business worth
Several research studies have discovered that houses equipped with solar energy systems have greater property values and offer more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more informed about solar, demand for properties geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.
#5 Increase U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and a crucial component of attaining energy self-reliance in the United States. By increasing our capacity to produce electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our nation from rate variations 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 overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is a great 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 decrease that number. A typical property photovoltaic panel system will get rid of 3 to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social duty are essential parts of a company's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Progressively, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding organisations that pick to operate properly. Services are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective driver of consumer getting choices, producing goodwill and improving organisation results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no loan down.
Lots of house owners select to fund their photovoltaic panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" financing options. This means that a third-party business-- the solar provider-- owns the planetary system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar supplier for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility company.
As of June 2013, 75% of all American houses have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Investment
The energy business are infamous for their changing and unreliable electrical power prices. There is clearly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can calculate how much electrical power will be produced, and most significantly, at what price, for a minimum of the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions
Costs Of Solar Thermal Energy?
Solar thermal is one of the least expensive and most effective ways to use solar energy.
There are different ways of using it to heat water or your home, some more costly than others. The overall cost will depend on where you live. The more temperate the climate the cheaper it'll be.
for some suggestions and answers to your solar thermal questions.
What Are The Benefits If All Cars Were Electric Versus All Gas?
So Heres My Thought. If All Cars Ran On Electricity, We Would Be Burning More Coal To Produce That Energy And Still Release Co2 Into The Atmosphere, So Whats The Exchange In This Case. Anyone Out There With Education In Environmental Chemistry/Science Be Able To Answer This?
Coal pollution should not increase if most cars switched to electric, and here's why:
1) It takes nearly the same amount of electricity to refine gasoline as it takes to charge electric cars (about 6 kilowatt-hours per gallon of gas, according to US Dept. of Energy.) So if gas usage goes down as EV usage goes up, electricity usage barely changes.
2) Coal usage is already declining. Today it makes up less than half the energy on the grid. This trend will continue. Solar is poised to become less expensive than coal in as little as 10 years from now.
3) Electric vehicles are 3 to 5 times more efficient than gasoline vehicles. More miles on less energy equals less overall pollution, no matter what you burn to make electricity.
Solar Powered Cell Phones?
Solar Powered Cell Phones Are Now Available In China And Prototypes Are In The Making In Germany. How Soon Will This Technology Make It To The Us?
Cell phones normally last a week or longer on a charge so why would you want to leave your cell phone setting in the sun to charge? Not many people stand in the sun with their cell phone hooked on the top of their heads?
This would be a useless product as far as I can tell. There are already portable solar cell phone and laptop chargers in the USA and I am sure in all other countries as well.

Nuclear Vs. Renewable Resources?
Are You Pro Or Anti-Nuclear Energy? Why Or Why Not? Preferably I Wanted To See The Points Of The Other Side - Because I'M An Anti One; I Don'T Want Another Technology That Will Harm The Environment.
Cautiously pro. The nuclear power industry does have an extremely good safety record. Chernobyl was a big exception, and was caused by poor engineering, poor maintenance, and poor training. More people die every year mining coal or drilling for oil than have ever died from nuclear power. However, the big unsolved problem is what to do with the nuclear waste. None of the "solutions" dreamed up so far are satisfactory, so until this is solved I would prefer to leave nuclear power alone and investigate other options (solar, wind, tidal, geothermal). These technologies could become cost effective if enough money is put into the necessary research and development.
Why Is Biofuel The Best?
My Class Is Doing A Debate On What Energy Is The Best. I'Ve Been Assigned To Be A Hippie Who Thinks Biofuel Is The Best Energy Source. I'M Making Signs (For The Hippies) And I Can'T Think Of Any Puns Or Phrases That Promotes Biofuel. I Also Need Possible Information About Biofuel And What They'Re Doing About The Food Shortage. Also, My Classmates Will Ask Tough Questions. So Providing Me With Possible Answers And Hard Questions So I Can Practice Would Be Great. Plus The Puns And Phrases For Biofuel. Thanks In Advance =]
It's not the best. Ethyl Alcohol produces more carbon dioxide than gasoline does. Further, it takes more fertilizer to grow nitrogen intensive corn, thus contributing to the consumption of large amounts of fossile fuels to make the fertilizer. Plus the fertilizer contaminates lakes, streams and the oceans. Biofuel is not the answer to the energy problem.
Mark my words - hydrogen fuel is the answer because combustion of hydrogen produces water and this produces no contamination, does not require the consumption of fossile fuels. Hydrogen could be created using solar power to generate electricity to split pure water into hydrogen gas and oxygen. An engine can be built that does this, splitting water into hydrogen gas through electrolysis and then combusting it with the oxygen which is separated - however, our government and strong corporate interests surpress this knowledge because too much money is at stake by corporate interests to make it happen yet on a large scale. Eventually, it will happen, but its going to take a lot more suffering on the part of humanity before those corporate interests get out of the way of common sense and progress.
