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 notorious for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical energy prices. There is plainly an upward pattern.
With photovoltaic panels and basic math, we can calculate how much electrical power will be produced, and most significantly, at what cost, for at least the next Twenty Years (fixed energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions
Can Solar Power Panels Installed At Home Provide Enough Electricity To Power House Hold Appliances?
Can Solar Power Panels Installed At Home Provide Enough Electricity To Power House Hold Appliainces And Heat Water.
They can but it takes a lot of panels. A home averages about 1 kw power. Peak power is higher (3-6 kw) but you can handle that with load leveling storage batteries.
The total maximum solar flux is about 1 kw/square yard (or square meter). Solar panels are around 10% efficient. Because the Sun travels across the sky, the overall power is about 1/2 this maximum but then ony during the day (1/2 the time). Since you need to recharge your batteries for nighttime, etc. and battery charging is about 50% you lose abother factor of two.
So, assuming the Sun shines every day, you can power your house on 80 square yards (700 square feet of solar panels). This is still very rare because the investment in solar panels, batteries, converters, etc. far outweighs what you spend for commercial electricity.
Why In The Last 8 Yrs The?
Do You Think The Us Should Invest More In Solar Power? In The Uk All New Government Bldg Are Required To Have Solar Panels. If The Price Came Down Would You Put Them On Your House? Or Do You Think It Would Be A Good Idea For Us Car Manufacturers To Put Them On New Cars? Solar Is A Truly Renewable Power Source So Why Has The Us So Blatantly Been Seeming Like They Are Forgetting About It Except For Skin Cancer And Selling More Sunscreen?
There are a million eco-responsible things that the US could do/should do. But as a nation, until the old white men that run this country can no longer turn a huge profit on oil, or start making money on solar panels it won't happen. The US is like 5% of the worlds population and we use like 40% of the worlds resources. We are a bunch of fat greedy bastards. Although there is an uprise in going green in this country now, it is a fad. It is gaining great momentum because it is the cool thing to do, but it is still a fad and US people as a whole are only going to be as green as they feel benifits them. There are ofcourse the exceptions, but i wouldnt really count on the US to really step up anytime soon.
What Are Your Opinions On Solar Shingles? Good?Why? Bad? Why? Anyone Have Them?
Wondering About These New Solar Shingles. Are They Better Than Solar Panels? Can You Cover The Whole Roof In Them? How Much Power Would They Supply? Any Other Info Welcome.
Solar shingles are made to look more like a conventional roof. The performance is similar to solar panels, but the position of your house will dictate the efficiency. With panels, you can fine tune the angle of incident. If your house is positioned right, then they will be OK and you can save the cost of regular shingles.
One thing to be aware of is the life of the shingle and the cost to replace/repair.
How Many Solar Panels Do I Need To Run A Air Conditioner?
115 Volts 15 Amps. Just Running In Day Without Battery And Get About 5 Hours Of Sun Light Or More.
1750 watts, and you will need that amount to run AT ALL. Any less than that and the unit will trip out and not run.
Also you need an inverter to make the 115AC, and realistically you need a battery as well. Otherwise any time a tiny cloud drift over the power will drop and the AC trips out.
So you are up for maybe $5,000 in panels, plus the regulator, inverter and at least a small battery. It's not a "field" of panels, but it's a fair chunk of a roof covered.
Is It Possible For A Solar Powered Car To Exist?
I Was Looking At A Calculator That Was Solar Powered The Other Day And I Wondered Why Cant There Be A Car That Is Solar Powered. I Know That Since It Is Solar Powered The Energy Obviously Has To Come From The Sun So I Thought Why Not Only Put The Cars Where It Is Always Sunny. The Solar Panels Could Go On The Roof.
No. At least not without a major break through.
A car, even with solar panels on the roof, hood and trunk would not have enough surface area to get enough sunlight to make the car run. Solar panels are just not that efficient, and work best in direct sunlight and in most places that is only for a couple hours a day(10am to 2pm). And you would need to keep the panels clean, and cars get dirty fast. and replace them often.
And there is the battery problem. The car would need a huge battery, that was very heavy. And the heaver the car, the more energy it takes to move the car. And a car alone is heavy, as it needs to stay on the road and not fly off the ground. And a battery loses power at night, even more so in the cold, so chances are the car would not start in the morning.
