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 a/c unit, cleaning clothes, viewing TELEVISION, cooking dinner. All while reducing your carbon footprint, and without burning nonrenewable fuel sources or putting a stress on the electrical grid. And while the ecological benefits of solar power are considerable, many home owners find that the convenience, unique features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are even more alluring.
Top Ten Benefits of Solar Energy
#1 Drastically lower or even eliminate your electric costs
Whether you're a homeowner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical energy costs can make up a big portion of your monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll create free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce One Hundred Percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your energy costs and you'll still conserve a lot of cash.
#2 Earn a great return on your investment
Solar panels aren't an expenditure-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more standard financial investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electrical power costs savings, the average American house owner settles their photovoltaic panel system in 7 to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.
#3 Protect versus rising energy costs
Among the most clear cut advantages of photovoltaic panels is the ability to hedge utility rates. In the past 10 years, domestic electricity costs have increased by an average of 3 percent annually. By buying a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical power rate and safeguard versus unforeseeable increases in electrical power expenses. If you're a service or homeowner with changing money flow, going solar also helps you better projection and handle your expenses.
#4 Boost your home value
Several research studies have actually found that homes geared up with solar energy systems have greater residential or commercial property worths and sell faster than non-solar houses. Appraisers are progressively taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as homebuyers end up being 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 key part of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to generate electricity from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in global energy markets.
#6 Develop jobs and help your regional economy
Inning accordance with The Solar Structure, the solar industry included 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 development is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and can not be outsourced, they are a substantial contributor to the United States economy.
#7 Secure the environment
Solar is an excellent way to decrease 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 photovoltaic panel system will eliminate three to 4 lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees yearly.
#8 Show your dedication to sustainability
Sustainability and business social duty are important parts of an organization's culture and worths. They also produce bottom line outcomes. Progressively, customers and neighborhoods are acknowledging and rewarding businesses that decide to operate responsibly. Services are discovering that "green" qualifications are an effective chauffeur of consumer getting decisions, producing goodwill and improving business results.
#9 Start Conserving from Day 1
Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no money down.
Many property owners decide to finance their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" financing choices. This implies that a third-party business-- the solar company-- owns the solar system and looks after installation, maintenance, monitoring and repairs. You simply pay the solar provider 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 well-known for their changing and unreliable electrical energy costs. There is plainly an upward trend.
With photovoltaic panels and simple mathematics, we can calculate just how much electricity will be produced, and most importantly, at exactly what rate, for at least the next Twenty Years (repaired energy costs).

Frequently Asked Questions
What Is The Best Way To Purchase Used Solar Panels By Container Load?
I Have A Friend From Bulgaria ( Europe ) Who Would Like To Buy A 20 Ft Container Of Used Solar Panls
I've got 10 used collectors on my roof. They are occasionally available from company's selling solar equipment or scrap yards.
Many collectors became available when the tax rebates from the Carter era ended and the systems required more upkeep and expense than the owners were willing to provide. Mine came from a school.
Most recently I came across a large group of used panel at this web site. Note that this was some time ago and I have no idea if they still have them or they were salvaged as scrap copper.
Other things to think about are that used collectors may be damaged. They may leak or may have been neglected and had their antifreeze become very acidic which can corrode the units (just things to think about).
How Does Solar Energy Work?
How Does The Solar Panels Energy Transmit To A House... Ect
solar pannels have solar cell which are semiconductors, when light fall on it acts as a tranducer converting light to electricity.
a groups of such cell connected together is called solar pannel.
this is similar to a battery.
How To Increase Current To Charge Battery Faster? 80 Watt Solar Panel?
I Have 80 Watt Solar Panel, Solar Control And Two Batteries. A Marine Deep Cycle Battery And Car Battery. Am Test How Long Does It Take To Charge The Batteries Completely. Im On Day Two And Still Nothing. Is There A Way I Can Charge The Batteries Fast? Do I Need To Increase The Current? The Solar Panels Are Connected In Series.
12-volt panels actually put out 14 to 17 volts which is necessary to charge a 12-volt battery. If you are using 12-volt panels and 12-volt batteries, the panels should NOT be in series unless the batteries are also in series and the charge controller is rated at 24 volts. Two non-similar batteries in series may not work well together.
Power (watts) = amps X volts, so an 80 watt 12-volt panel puts out 80/12=6.67 amps which should charge a battery overnight.
Why Is Efficiency Less Important For A Wind Turbine?
Hey Z, I would have to agree with Chris, less important than what? Wind turbines have a maximum theoretical efficiency of 59.6%. This was discovered by Albert Betz, it's called the Betz Limit. Most modern turbines operate at about 35% efficient, so about 1/3 of the energy of the moving column of air flowing through the turbines swept area is converted to usable torque, or electricity. Let's compare it to other modern technologies: Gasoline car engines, 25%. Incandescent light bulbs, 4%. Compact Flourescent lights (CF), 23%. Diesel engines, 34%. Solar panels, 12%. The thing is, with a turbine, if you want to build one that produces a maximum rated power of 1000 watts, like ours, you just work out the engineering so it produces that power in a good wind. With a car, or light bulb, we have to add more energy to overcome the losses. The only thing that is wasted in a turbine is airspace.
We don't really have any way to increase turbines past about 45% right now, there are a few experimental ones that get up there, but they don't work well in high winds or turbulent winds, so most manufacturers use three bladed models, which are a little less efficient, and then just make the blades longer to make up for the loss in efficiency. In the end it makes what power is expected of it. Solar panels are similar in this way. We could make a solar panel that is twice as efficient as the ones we have now, and they could make the same power in half the roof space, but they would cost more per unit power, there are some out there now in the low 20's. In the end you would have an array that makes the same power, but costs twice as much, so nobody buys those panels, they use the existing technology, same as we do here. It doesn't really matter much, our array runs our entire home, and it uses less than 1/5 th of the available roof space on our garage, a more expensive, more efficient array would cost more and use less roof space, which would accomplish nothing more than reducing our cash position. Efficiency is important if you're feeding a device something in exchange for getting something else in return, like a car, or an investment. But the wind and the sun are free, and there is plenty of square footage, and airspace to produce all of our grid power from it if we wanted, so no, it isn't very crucial. Take care Z, Rudydoo
Why Should We Use Solar Energy?
Why Should We Use Solar Energy
Because solar energy is renewable. Gas and oil burn up quickly, and we have to find more stores in the earth. They will eventually run out. But the sun will still be in the sky for billions of years. Solar panels capture the sun's light and passively make electricity. There are no moving parts. Solar panels last for over 40 years and supply a home with all the electricity it needs.
Plus, current state and federal incentives make solar energy very affordable. After the initial investment, you could be powering your home for free with sunlight!
