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 use the sun to power everyday life: running your air conditioner, cleaning clothing, watching TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while decreasing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are substantial, many property owners find that the benefit, distinct features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.
Top Ten Advantages of Solar Energy
#1 Significantly decrease and even eliminate your electric expenses
Whether you're a property owner, business, or nonprofit, electrical power expenses can make up a big part of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you'll create totally free 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 bills and you'll still save a lot of money.
#2 Earn an excellent return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the best methods to invest, with returns matching those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to significant electricity costs savings, the typical American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus rising energy expenses
One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge energy prices. In the past 10 years, property electrical power prices have gone up by an average of 3 percent yearly. By purchasing a solar energy system now, you can repair your electricity rate and secure against unpredictable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a service or property owner with ever-changing capital, going solar also helps you better forecast and handle your costs.
#4 Boost your home or business worth
Numerous studies have actually found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and sell more rapidly than non-solar houses. Appraisers are significantly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers become more educated about solar, need for 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 a key part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical power from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from cost fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Create jobs and assist your local economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Foundation, the solar market added jobs at a rate almost 12 times faster than the overall U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the country. This development is expected to continue. Since solar-related jobs have the tendency to be greater paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable factor to the United States economy.
#7 Safeguard the environment
Solar is an excellent method to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can substantially reduce that number. A typical domestic photovoltaic panel system will remove three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees every year.
#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and business social obligation are necessary components of a company's culture and worths. They likewise produce bottom line outcomes. Increasingly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding services that opt to run responsibly. Organisations are finding that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of consumer purchasing decisions, developing goodwill and enhancing service results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power agreements (PPAs) and solar leasing has made it possible for house owners to go solar for little or no cash down.
Numerous property owners select to finance their solar panels with one of the "pay-as-you-go" funding choices. This indicates that a third-party business-- the solar supplier-- owns the solar system and looks after setup, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar company for electricity-- less than you would've paid the utility business.
Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.
#10. Solar is a Secure Financial investment
The energy companies are notorious for their changing and unreliable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward trend.
With solar panels and simple math, we can calculate how much electrical energy will be created, and most importantly, at what cost, for a minimum of the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

What is the warranty?
The Lease and PPA include a 20-year warranty during the lifetime of the system. This warranty exceeds that of most other solar installers’ warranties.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can Solar Panels Be Installed On The &Quot;Peak&Quot; Of A Roof?
If The Sides Of My Roof Run South To North, (Sides Facing East, West) And Therefore I Don'T Have Any Side That Are Facing South.....Can I Still Have Solar Panels Installed Somehow? And Can They Be Installed On The Peak Of The Roof?
South facing is the preferred way to place them to get the most sunlight energy.
The normal pannels are approxiamately 4' x 2'. And can be installed almost anywhere on the roof.
The main problem is to limit wind energy off of it.
There is two wind problems wind load (the force exerted on the roof if it gets close to cruching the roof or exceeds it in windy areas). The other if to much wind gets under the panels they will try to lift off like a kite.
First you need a solar evaluation to see where is the best place to place the solar panels based on shading from trees, land scaping, or tall buildings etc.... Shading can cause the solar panel to loose voltage, and get to zero voltage if shaded enough.
Then you need to check with your state and the federal government for financial help. They can help provide up to 30% or in tax incentives.
What Is The Power Of A Solar Panel Measured In (Units). And How Many Units To Heat 1 Cu M By 1 Degree F?
We Need To Heat A Communal Swimming Pool In Spain By A Couple Of Degrees. To This End We Need To Know Which Is The Best 'Value For Money' Product, I.E. Effective Heating Against Cost.
I don't have a technical answer, but know that for our community pool in California, we have solar panels that cover the entire roof of the clubhouse - about twice the surface area of the pool. This could be heating water for showers, too, though - I'm not sure.
What Are Solar Panels?
A solar panel is a device that collects and converts solar energy into electricity or heat which can be used by (for example) nearby buildings. Solar photovoltaic panels can be made so that the sun's energy excites the atoms in a silicon layer between two protector panels. Electrons from these excited atoms form an electric current, which can be used by external devices. Solar panels were in use over one hundred years ago for water heating in homes. Solar panels can also be made with a specially shaped mirror that concentrates light onto a tube of oil. The oil then heats up, and travels through a vat of water, instantly boiling it. The steam created turns a turbine for power.
The basic element of solar panels is pure silicon. When stripped of impurities, silicon makes an ideal neutral platform for transmission of electrons. In silicon’s natural state, it carries four electrons, but has room for eight. Therefore silicon has room for four more electrons. If a silicon atom comes in contact with another silicon atom, each receives the other atom's four electrons. Eight electrons satisfy the atoms' needs, this creates a strong bond, but there is no positive or negative charge. Silicon atoms combine for years to produce a large piece of pure silicon. This material is used on the plates of solar panels. Combining silicon with other elements that have a positive or negative charge can also create solar panels.
What Are Solar Panels Made Of?
(For A Project)
I Know They Are Made Of Silicon, But I Want To Everything They Are Made Of. Ex Metal (What Kind)
Please Tell Me Everything Used From Their Production To The Finished Project
Well i am not sure but to my knowledge all i know is that the purpose is to save solar cells which are later created into energy
Solar energy is generated from solar panels. Solar panels are slabs of semi-conductor metal. Technically speaking, they are a slab of silicon semi-conductor doped or added with impurities to make it a better conductor. Solar panels could also be made of Gallium Arsenide which is a semi-conductor metal exclusively used in photo-voltaic cells.
The silicon slabs are polished and glossed before doping. After processing, for protection, a thin glass layer is embossed on the solar cells slab. Silicon also is shiny and reflects about 35% of sunlight. Hence, an anti-reflective coating is usually applied over the slabs to reduce the amount of sunlight lost. Amorphous silicon solar panels are different from the traditional ones made from silicon slabs. Amorphous silicon solar cells are thinner and more efficient that the silicon ones and also the materials cost of this variety is far lesser than the traditional. Amorphous silicon slabs are developed with superior processes which makes them less susceptible to breakage during transportation. This makes them a more viable investment when it comes to buying solar panels.
How Do Solar Panels Help Is To Use Less Fossil Fuels?
Stuck On My Homework?, Please Help!
There are 2 types of solar panels, one is used for heating water the other for producing electricity.
In both cases the use of solar panels allows us to harness the power from the sun and use the energy where otherwise we would be using electricity from a mains source. this electricity coming from a power station often uses Coal, Oil or natural gas to power it, Therefore by using solar energy we reduce the amount of fossil fuel we use.
Solar cells can also be used to power other things and work is going on to try and find an efficient solar power vehicle, this would reduce our use of oil in the form of petrol and diesel.
Solar panels can be large or small, portable ones are available for charging Ipods, mobile phones etc. all reducing our dependence on fossil fuels further.
